[…] Justice Clarence Thomas wrote the 5 to 4 decision. He said that the “government-drafted script” specifically mentions abortion — “the very practice that petitioners are devoted… Read more

Michael Horne provides an excellent primer on all the dangers for kids regarding technology in The Tech Talk but he spends scant time showing the good side that can be there. Almost a year ago, I was on an EWTN panel with Dr. Michael Horne, PsyD. He mentioned a  soon-to-be-published book he wrote on kids and technology – I noted I might be interested in reviewing it. OSV published it in Fall 2017 and sent me free copy, but it… Read more

Pope Francis has condemned the practice of Eugenic abortions in no uncertain terms. Doctors and society abort children just because a genetic or other test shows some kind of disability in the child. As CNA reported Francis’s words: “I’ve heard that it’s fashionable, or at least usual, that when in the first few months of pregnancy they do studies to see if the child is healthy or has something, the first offer is: let’s send it away,” the pope said June 16,… Read more

Recently, I had the opportunity to talk to Rickard Newman who is a convert to Catholicism and the writer and co-director of the movie “Sexual Revolution: 50 Years Since Humanae Vitae”. Me: Can you tell me a little about how you came to know the Catholic Church and its teachings on sexual morality? Rickard: I grew up in Sweden and was baptized in the Lutheran Church, but we didn’t go to church, my faith was never fostered and I opted… Read more

Gallup released a poll showing that most people want more restrictive abortion laws than currently are in place. Human Defense Initiative reported: The poll shows many who are pro-abortion also hold it should be legal only in a few circumstances, which starkly contrasts the heavy push in the media and elsewhere for its mass legalization. 53% of Americans believe abortion should be illegal in all or most situations, while only 43% believe abortion should be legal in all or most situations.

NPR has a report from inside a clinic making a three-parent baby. In a clinic on a side street in Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, doctors are doing something that, as far as is publicly known, is being done nowhere else in the world: using DNA from three different people to create babies for women who are infertile. “If you can help these families to achieve their own babies, why it must be forbidden?” Valery Zukin, director of the Nadiya Clinic, asks… Read more

In recent weeks, there have been a few stories about sexual assault on Catholic college campuses. The fact that there are sexual assaults doesn’t surprise me. It’s not that I think there’s necessarily something wrong with the dating culture on these campuses: I just know our human nature is fallen. I would even suspect that the strong spiritual presence of such schools reduces the incidence of sexual assault. Nonetheless, assuming the spiritual climate eliminates sexual assault is naïveté. I would… Read more

The Sunday Guardian (of India) published a report about a new “vaccine” to prevent pregnancy or abort a baby. The prestigious journal Nature Medicine, in its February issue reported that the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) is to do a clinical trial of a tetanus toxoid vaccine (TT) laced with a pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). It is to be studied on 120 women in India. This “vaccine” against pregnancy was developed by Dr G. P. Talwar in 1972. The idea is… Read more
