Béatrice Fedor comments on the recent trend among abortion advocates to share “positive” abortion stories in order to “break the silence” and “remove the stigma”. You can’t “remove” abortion stigma and shame but you can face what happened honestly and start to heal. There would be no stigma if what we call “abortion” were a […]

The “#WhatWomenNeed…for Valentine’s Day” hashtag was kicked off by House Democrats last week. This Monday, Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards got in on the fun by posting a vine video of herself holding up a series of #WhatWomenNeed cue cards that said, among other things, “birth control” and “safe + legal abortions.” Pro-lifers responded with their […]

Admittedly, I have not watched a lot of this year’s Winter Olympics. I’m more of a summer games kinda gal, myself. But an image image from the games this week captured my attention, as did the story behind it. On Monday Alex Bilodeau won gold in the freestyle skiing moguls competition — and he shared […]

This is pretty fascinating, if not also very chilling (h/t Stacy Trasancos). Stacy highlighted a key exchange between Roe attorney Sarah Weddington and a few of the Justices (beginning at 20:37 in the second audio file): Justice Harry A.

Does our culture have a love/hate relationship with babies? Is Captain James T. Kirk captive to the culture of death? And what does Pope Francis mean by an “ecumenism of blood?” I had a good time talking about all of the above on the Mike Allen Show yesterday with the ever-awesome Jason Hall, who is […]

Two weeks ago I told you about a New Zealand couple who won an appeals court ruling in their “wrongful birth” lawsuit. Shortly after publishing that story, a couple in Washington State was awarded $50 million, the state’s largest ever individual award, for a wrongful birth case. Knowing that there was a 50-50 chance that […]

In New Zealand: parents of a child with spina bifida could receive an ACC payout after successfully arguing they were denied the chance to abort their daughter. Doctors missed signs of the defect in the foetus during a 20-week scan. The couple said they would have terminated the pregnancy had they known the daughter, who […]

In recent years, modern academics have managed to recast “eugenics” as a positive term, distinguishing their vision from past government-mandated eugenics policies. The emphasis now is on “selective reproduction” and the parents’ “choice” to decide what kind of child they want to have. The result has been a search and destroy mission to wipe people […]

A few weeks ago we ran an article at Catholic Lane about new data on why women have abortions. Someone choosing to go by the name “choiceone” left the following brilliant comment (click both images to enlarge): Poor dear. She(?) thought she was so clever. I love the response from my EIC predecessor at Catholic […]

Population Research Council has released a new video using cartoons to break down the complexities of pregnancy, illustrating how the drug affects ovulation, conception, and implantation. Characters on camels represent the sperm and their journey, while a lumbering elephant carrying a round little figure represent the female egg and its journey. Palaces, dust storms, and […]
