Doctors Refuse to Perform Abortions

Anything is possible with a little faith and determination. I am pleased to say that a hospital in Rzeszów, Poland has ceased to perform abortions. This is because every single doctor signed a pledge stating that they will no longer perform them. A specialist named Agata Rejman decided to take a stand against abortion. Prior to that […]

Freezing Human Eggs: Like Yesterday’s Dinner

When it is thought that a baby is not a human until birth and that a woman has the right to choose, the role of God is taken away and man becomes his own God. The woman is playing God by saying that she has the right to choose life or death; she is throwing […]

The War on Girls

Feminists and Pro-Choice advocates will be more than happy to spend time talking about the war on women: what women can do, what they cannot do, and that the right to choose is a women’s right. However, before girls can grow up and become women they have to survive the war on girls. Yes, you […]

Brighter Futures through Birth Control: A paradox

A global partnership called Family Planning 2020 was launched in 2012, in conjunction with the United Nations Population Fund, USAID and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Why the UN needs to recognize Natural Law

So there’s this thing called Natural Law. “The natural law, present in the heart of each man and established by reason, is universal in its precepts and its authority extends to all men. It expresses the dignity of the person and determines the basis for his fundamental rights and duties.” (CCC 1956) Natural Law is […]

Does 1+1=3?

You may be thinking how did this woman get through college if she’s asking a question as simple as 1+1=3?  The truth is that was never my question, rather it is originally from 1+1=3? The Integration Hypothesis, an event I went to the other week. The event was really more of a lecture with a […]

Societal Soul-Searching: Planned Parenthood Scandal

Planned Parenthood, the United States’ largest abortion provider, has recently found itself in the center of controversy as a series of four under-cover videos released by The Center for Medical Progress have shown Planned Parenthood employees very nonchalantly and sometimes graphically discussing the donating and selling of aborted baby parts.  A couple of the videos actually […]

Idaho Is Not A Defeat For Pro-lifers: Here’s Why.

On May 13, 2015 the House of Representatives passed a bill banning abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy right up until birth. For pro-life supporters, this was a big step in the right direction towards helping to protect vulnerable and voiceless unborn babies.   Congressman Sean Duffy implored for this protection during the debate, which preceded […]

The Pro-Life Heroes

Last week a story appeared about a young woman who chose to forgo chemotherapy rather than risk killing the baby that was growing inside her. Diagnosed with bone cancer when she was ten weeks pregnant, 24-year old Ashley Bridges decided there was “no way [she] could kill a healthy baby because [she was] sick.” Eight […]
