Wendy Davis Suffers Major Defeat in War Against Texas Babies

  Good news from the Lone Star State. A federal appeals court in Texas has upheld legislation that bans most abortions after 20 weeks in the state. In its ruling, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the lower court’s reasoning that the law posed an “undue burden” on the rights of Texas women seeking [...]

What Makes You Different Is What Makes You Beautiful

This picture is important. Many children diagnosed with Down Syndrome and other special needs are aborted – and we need to be talking about this disturbing fact. Catholics need to be outspokenly, unapologetically pro-life because every single life is precious and deserves a chance at life. I have written here before about babies with fetal [...]

Hobby Lobby and Religious Liberty: One Analyst Predicts Victory

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments this week in the Hobby Lobby case, in which that corporation, which is owned by Christians, is challenging some of the HHS insurance mandates.  Hobby Lobby claims the mandates force it to provide contraceptive coverage that includes drugs that induce abortion, and that this is contrary to their religious [...]

The ignored controversy at CPAC

The annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) is the nation’s largest conservative conference. Every spring, thousands of political conservatives descend on Washington to listen to conservative luminaries and prospective Presidential candidates. The roster of participating groups never fails to generate a significant amount of controversy within the conservative movement. In years past, the inclusion of [...]

On Contraception: What is the Sense of the Faithful?

What is the sense of the faithful regarding the morality of contraception?  For that matter, what is meant by the expression “the sense of the faithful”?

Corey’s 2011 sci-fi novel Leviathan Wakes, James Holden, one of the book’s two main characters, finds himself being questioned by Martian authorities about his non-traditional upbringing on Earth: “Your file says you were the only child of a family co-op,” Lopez said, acting as though they’d never stopped talking about Holden’s past.

Women Deserve Better than Planned Parenthood on Valentine’s Day

On Monday, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards tweeted out this Vine video and used the hashtag #WhatWomenNeed: #WhatWomenNeed for Valentine’s Day: http://t.co/6oQu28YZMa — Cecile Richards (@CecileRichards) February 10, 2014 Happy Valentine’s Day, ladies.

A Notre Dame Professor Urges the Pope to Rethink Abortion: Part 2

In a recent post I discussed what I think are some of the problems with Notre Dame professor Gary Gutting’s invitation to Pope Francis to rethink the Church’s teaching on abortion.  That post got rather long, so I promised to take up the rest of the argument in a second post.  Herewith, the fulfillment of [...]

The Silenced Children

Every life is precious, and deserves the chance to live. This is the clear and concise belief the pro-life movement, and everyone who participates in the pro-life movement. In the pro-life movement, we constantly hear stories of girls who “aren’t ready to have a baby”, and women who “don’t have the resources to raise a [...]
