Archbishop: I will be Marching For My Brother Born With Downs Syndrome

  This week, we march. The reason we march is simple – life.  And yet if you asked a thousand people at the March for Life why they are there, you might easily get a thousand different answers - from mothers, fathers, children, students, advocates, politicians, priests, survivors…all who see the beauty of life in a unique way. And isn’t [...]

The Joy of Life

I felt like a parent who brought her children to a rock concert; everyone was young there. It was loud, joyful, full of rock songs blaring, singing, drum banging, camera phones flashing, texting, tweeting, bright yellow balloons, congo line dancing and full of teenagers and young people having fun.  Taylor Swift concert?

How Far We’ve Come

For the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Texas Alliance for Life has created a video recounting the progress of the Pro-Life movement.

True and False Witness on the Abortion-Pill Mandate

The Supreme Court gave a temporary injunction to the Little Sisters of the Poor to protect them from Obamacare’s abortion-pill mandate.  The only one who seems unhappy about it is Michael Sean Winters of the National Catholic Reporter. Winters accuses the Little Sisters’ lawyer of “bearing false witness” by saying that Obamacare forces the Sisters [...]

Teen Pregnancy Rate Reaches a Record Low

Earlier this month the Centers for Disease Control released a new report on fertility rates. It found that the teen pregnancy rate continues to decline and reached historic lows in 2009.
