Contraception and the Myth of “Planned Parenthood”

I sometimes find it strange that in the decades since the Pill became widely accessible, unplanned pregnancies have become just so much more common, and so have abortions. With its 99.9% efficacy rate, it would seem that Pill access and use would forever end the challenge of unplanned pregnancies. This is clearly not the case. […]

El don de la fertilidad

La fertilidad, o cualidad de ser fértil, en la tierra la entendemos como aquella que rinde bastante; en el año lo podemos traducir a una temporada abundante en producción, en los seres vivos en la capacidad de reproducirse y en la especie humana en el don de procrear. En todos los contextos se entiende como […]

Empty Beds

Christians are often targeted because of their firm beliefs. Christianity is often not understood and it is because of this reason that it is often feared by others. It is often said that what you don’t understand, you fear and this is certainly this is true for Christianity. In Norway, the Bodnariu family has lost […]

The Power of Pro-Life Films

I have always loved art. I love how striking architecture stops me in my tracks as I’m walking the streets of downtown Chicago where I live. I find it remarkable, yet amusing, how paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago will pull me toward them and cause me to enter into a trance, dumbfounded at […]

New Study Shows term “Pro-Choice” may be Misleading

While the commonly held belief is that the term “pro-choice” refers to someone who is against abortion restrictions, a new study shows that the term is actually a misnomer in many cases. The reality is that, according to a recent poll,  the majority of Americans are in favor of at least some abortion restrictions. A new […]

¿Por qué permanezco en la Iglesia?

“Existen hoy muchos y opuestos motivos para no permanecer en la Iglesia. En nuestros días están tentados de volver la espalda a la Iglesia no sólo aquellos a quienes se les ha hecho extraña la fe de ésta, a quienes aparece demasiado retrógrada, demasiado medieval, demasiado hostil al mundo y a la vida, sino también aquellos […]

Kenya Stands Up For Family Values

The family has generally been described as the cell of society, not only because it is the first social contact for a child but also because it is the child’s first school, first clinic and indeed the first church. This aged long role of the family as the principal educators of children has been threatened […]

De los taxis contra Uber y otros sistemas perversos

Cuando se habla de los derechos humanos, existen categorías que surgen casi automáticamente, como la no discriminación, el derecho a la vida, o los concernientes a la familia. Y si bien es correcto hablar de ellos, muchas veces monopolizan los debates y reducen la apreciación de la realidad y la riqueza de las condiciones necesarias […]

Grey vs. Darcy

A lo largo de nuestra vida como seres humanos, la libertad de elegir ha sido parte de nuestro desarrollo y madurez. Nuestras capacidades humanas nos permiten conocer el mundo a través de nuestros sentidos, razonar a través de nuestro intelecto y elegir entre diversas opciones, por medio de nuestra voluntad, ejerciendo cierto tipo de libertad.
