Get the truth on Obamacare

There’s no sugarcoating this. It’s a scandal pure and simple. Today President Obama delivered a major speech touting the success of Obamacare. And guess where he delivered this important speech… …the national conference of the Catholic Health Association. It’s no secret that the Catholic Health Association has long done the bidding of the Obama Administration on […]

Dying Catholic Mom vs. Assisted Suicide Bill

Stephanie Packer says life is worth living, even with her terminal illness — and she wants to stop assisted suicide legislation in California. National Public Radio shared Packer’s story nearly a year after Brittany Maynard’s media-celebrated suicide opened the floodgates to state-level assisted suicide measures from coast to coast. Stephanie, a Catholic mother of four, […]

A Medical Student Speaks Out on Oaths vs. Beliefs in Abortion

Obamacare’s Uncertain Future

Over at the Weekly Standard, attorney Adam J. White has a good piece describing the legal challenge to the Affordable Care Act that the Supreme Court has just decided to hear.  Or I should rather say the legal challenge to the Obama administration’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act, since the suit in question claims […]

The architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, is caught on camera saying voters are ‘stupid’ and can easily be fooled by lack of political transparency.

On Thursday, Nov. 6, pro-life activist Kathleen Eaton Bravo stood up in front of a ballroom packed with employees, supporters and guests — including Bishop Kevin Vann of the Diocese of Orange — at the Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California, and announced a radical change for the organization she founded in 1986.
