Just watched the movie “Swing Vote” (available for instant viewing on Netflix) which included this funny “pro-life” ad from the Democrat candidate after he found out that “Bud” was pro-life: Speaking of pro-life Democrats: recently nineteen Democrats warned Democrat leadership that they would oppose any bill that did not specifically exclude abortion funding. And, in the Senate Health, Education, Labor … Read More

The following video asks the logical question – if the murder of unborn children up to and including their very final stages of in-utero development remains legal, what will come next? Indeed some, like well respected and influential philosopher Peter Singer, already suggest that parents should have the right to decided within 28 days after birth whether they want to … Read More

Now more than ever our new president, officially sworn in yesterday, needs to be prayed for.

In a letter to the editor last week an Our Sunday Visitor reader responds to a previous OSV article asking if American Catholics are suffering from a conscience formation deficit and no longer taking abortion seriously: The problem is that abortion is not the problem but the symptom.

Fight ESCR Funding!

Chelsea2008 Election, Embryonic Stem Cell Research, PoliticsLeave a Comment

While pro-lifers are busy fighting FOCA, we must also be fighting with equal enthusiasm the likely expansion of federal funding for embryonic stem cell research that will take place during the next administration. Not only is the research itself morally and ethically reprehensible, but expanding the amount of money taxpayers are already spending on this unethical research is fiscally irresponsible … Read More

Sex, Happiness, and the Presidential Election

Christopher West has a great column up at the Theology of the Body Institute on Sex, Happiness and the Presidential Election: it seems to me that “what divides America” are two competing ideas of human happiness.

This undercover video from Students for Life of America unveils that at least one clinic is still practicing induced labor abortions and letting the babies who survive the abortion attempt “eventually die,” presumably by not giving the helpless living human beings the medical care that they are entitled to.

Judgment Day is on the Way

Chelsea2008 Election, Abortion, ReligionLeave a Comment

This is an outstanding article from Bishop Hermann in St. Louis. They haven’t named a permanent replacement yet, but I think Hermann’s filling in quite nicely for Burke: Judgment Day is on its way. When my time comes, I will be measured by my Savior for the decisions I have made. I will either be acknowledged by Jesus or denied … Read More
