Pope Francis – Still Catholic, Still Pro-Life

Pope-Francis-I

On Saturday, Pope Francis gave an address to the Association of Italian Catholic Doctors on the occasion of the organization's 70th anniversary.For those who have been pondering whether the Pope is still Catholic, still pro-life, etc., I recommend it. And it's a good read regardless. In particular, his emphasis that medical ethics is not about religion or philosophy. It's about science: The dominant thinking sometimes suggests a "false compassion", that which believes that it is: helpful to … [Read more...]

The other day, I wrote about a significant milestone at Heartbeat International's Option Line, the world's first and largest pregnancy help call center. Option Line has been open nonstop for 100,000 hours since it's inception in 2003. Over 2 million people, mostly women, have reached out to Option Line for help. Option Line connects callers to local resources for pregnant girls and women who might otherwise feel as if they have no choice but abortion.A few days later, the National Journal … [Read more...]

No Discussion, Please. We Want Diversity.

Oh that ignorant Catholic Church. Once again, it has a different view from those who preach "diversity."The Catholic Church in Poland has come under attack for apparently challenging "gender workshops," a type of sex-ed class in the schools that present children with "alternatives" to permanent monogamous heterosexual relations. According to an article in Our Sunday Visitor, the circumstances are not quite clear. Nevertheless, in a column for the theguardian.com, Agata Pyzik attacks the … [Read more...]

There are Kermit Gosnells everywhere and they can be brought to justice.

This week brought us the conviction of Kermit Gosnell, a man whom I refuse to recognize as a medical doctor and whom the state of Pennsylvania should have shut down long ago. Gosnell, apparently, didn't do abortions very well; so he had his staff dope up his patients with various drugs so that they would deliver the fetus on their own (at which point, legally, it magically becomes a baby because she's now outside of the mother) and then he or another staff member would kill the fetus-now-baby. … [Read more...]

Gosnell’s Mother’s Day Massacre

The news of the horrors committed by abortionist Kermit Gosnell is finally getting some visibility. Many pro-life advocates wrote about it when the Philadelphia Grand Jury issued a report on Gosnell and his clinics back in January 2011. I blogged about it here. My first take on the lack of coverage was that, on some level, everyone knows it's horribly true and, hence, no one wants to hear it. Too disturbing.Today's column by James Taranto in The Wall Street Journal might be the best pi … [Read more...]
