‘There have been a lot of recent articles on the expanding market for surrogate mothers, whether in developing countries or here at home. And, not unusually, the practice becomes at least somewhat established – if not fully established – before the commentary begins. Now the questions begin.’,’ Ellen Goodman has this piece in the Boston Globe. She writes: It’s the commercialism that is troubling. Some things we cannot sell no matter how good “the deal.” We cannot, for example, sell… Read more

‘The pundits, politicians, and newspapers are good at pointing out all the bad news. Heck, they can even make me look like an optimist. But, as my former colleague Kristen Hansen points out, the abortion lobby seems to think there’s no crisis except that pregnancy resource centers exist for women who want abortion alternatives. In fact, NARAL took their complaint all the way to the Maryland State Legislature. Kristen does a great job in her article of explaining what happened…. Read more

Turns out that it’s the religious types that are raising a voice for doing things the natural way – the way that nature intended – at Harvard and other Ivy League schools. Not everyone bought into the sexual revolution and I’m convinced that younger and younger people are refusing it because they’ve lived through the fallout of the sexual revolution and know that it doesn’t work. No doubt, you’ve heard about the hooking up culture. If you’ve been on or… Read more

‘I’ve often thought it’d be great to have just a fraction of the money that goes to funding studies that state the obvious. For example, there’s a new study (in addition to previous studies) that finds it’s not such a great idea for children to have televisions in their bedrooms. Not having children myself, I try to restrain myself and talk to parents to make sure that I’m not completely off base before commenting. The resounding response to cases like… Read more

When we go about having children the way we order a customized car, design a kitchen, or buy a wardrobe, maybe it’s a sign that we should get a pet or stick to inanimate things like cars, clothing, and cuisinarts rather than babies…..’,’ The New York Times has this piece on reducing the chances of multiple births for women who use IVF to become pregnant. Granted, infertility is a very difficult thing to deal with, but it doesn’t follow that… Read more

As most US citizens know, the abortion debate is not over. It rages on. I’ve mentioned before certain pro-life shifts in the culture, especially with regard to film. A recent film, 4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days, takes another step in the pro-life direction. But this film isn’t a feel-good experience by any means.  ‘,’The film shows the face of abortion – in all its components: the woman, the fetus, the doctor, the friend….the horror that is the reality…. Read more

’35 years after Roe v. Wade and abortion is still not settled in this country. I call that a victory for pro-life activists. What’s even better is that more and more young people are leading the fight. Some even identify themselves as “abortion survivors” because they were born after 1973 when the Supreme Court issued its decision.’,’The LA Times has this story about various youth initiatives to counter the pro-abortion culture. In addition, if you haven’t read the Roe decision,… Read more

‘The recent protests of Pope Benedict’s planned address to the Roman university La Sapienza demonstrate, yet again, what happens when you open your mind so much that your brains fall out. The protestors referenced a quote that Pope Benedict cited in a speech in 1990 The quote was from the philosopher Feyerbend, justifying the Church’s actions against Galileo. Unfortunately, they didn’t seem to read beyond the quote or they would have seen that he distanced himself from it. Nevertheless, they… Read more
