Why Does Richard Spencer Passionately Defend Abortion? The Answer Is Obvious If You Pay Attention

Recently, I went to my uncle’s house to celebrate my cousin’s birthday. As typically happens in a family gathering, at least in my family, politics came up.

Unidos Somos Fortaleza

Han pasado dos meses desde mi última entrada pero la situación actual en mi país me mantuvo ocupada y también fue un buen espacio de reflexión respecto a que podría escribir.

HUMANE VITAE PREDICTIONS & PROOF (PART II)

As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Humane Vitae even after all this time, the controversy around the document seems to have remained unsettled. Even a simple mention of the topic is enough to cause a brawl among Catholics and non-Catholics alike. The document is considered by some as an imposition of Church’s tyranny, ruling […]

HUMANE VITAE – SIMPLIFIED (PART I)

“I cannot believe that salvation is based on the thermometer [a necessary tool of the rhythm method], or that damnation is based on rubber.” said Dr.Andre Hellegers, a French member in the Papal Commission for the Study of Problems relating to Population, Family and Birth in commenting about Humane Vitae in 1968.

When did valuing family become a ridiculous joke?

In a High-Level Political Forum event in the UN this week on renewable energy, there was an alarming comment made. It occurred when the topic of clean cooking fuels for women came up. One of the forum discussants, Joan Carling of TEBTEBBA (Indigenous Peoples Major Group), was commenting on this issue. Carling said that we […]
