    Actress Sofia Vergara and her former fiancé Nick Loeb While much of the media ridiculed businessman Nick Loeb when he filed a lawsuit last year to prevent his former fiancée, TV star Sofia Vergara, from destroying the frozen embryos they created together in 2013, sentiment may shift following a disturbing development in the case. In an attempt to show that Loeb is dishonestly claiming to be “pro-life” in his quest to gain custody of the embryonic children the couple created together, Vegara’s attorneys have petitioned a California court to force Loeb to disclose the names of two women who underwent...

    On this Thanksgiving Day, we can all be thankful to God for lifting up President (elect) Trump! The bickering and griping from the purists and professional conservative class who are out to prove that Trump is not a "true conservative" will go on forever, but they quickly forget that he has already saved (conserved) our nation from a one-way trip to a third-world Marxist/fascist cesspit under the rule of the godless Hillary Clinton. Let us not forget that Trump single-handedly (well, with a little help from legions of irredeemable, deplorable bigots, racists and assorted ne'er-do-wells) defeated the GOPe, the Bush...

    It perhaps is an understatement to say that election night did not well for abortion activists. Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups spent tens of millions of dollars on the election, but their massive spending did not succeed in convincing Americans to support the extreme pro-abortion policies of Hillary Clinton and others. Now, they are planning their defense. On Wednesday, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards told MSNBCs Rachel Maddow that they are getting ready to fight for a U.S. Supreme Court nominee who supports abortion. A lot is at stake with the U.S. Supreme Court. One seat currently is open,...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- For the combatants in America's long-running culture wars, the triumph of Donald Trump and congressional Republicans was stunning - sparking elation on one side, deep dismay on the other. Advocates of LGBT rights and abortion rights now fear setbacks instead of further gains. But the outcome emboldened the anti-abortion movement and breathed new life into the religious right's campaign for broad exemptions from same-sex marriage and other laws. Kelly Shackelford, head of First Liberty Institute, a legal group that specializes in religious freedom cases, said that, for his cause, the environment will transform from "brutal" under...

Her proper entry into the world came 12 weeks after she was temporarily taken out of her mothers womb for a life-saving operation. Doctors discovered a tumour in the tailbone of Margaret Boemers unborn baby when the mother-to-be went for a routine ultrasound just 16 weeks into her pregnancy. Her only hope was a medical procedure that required surgeons to open up the womb and take the 1 lb, 3 oz foetus out for 20 minutes for...

The Democrat also said she has "been to countries where governments either forced women to have abortions, like they used to do in China." "With all her experience as former Secretary of State, it is untrue and deeply disappointing for Hillary Clinton to put the Chinese government's practice of forced abortion in the past," said Littlejohn in...

Laurence Rossignol unveiled plans to criminalize those sites that aim to dissuade women from obtaining a “voluntary interruption of pregnancy,” a procedure that is 100 percent state-funded in France during the first 12 weeks of gestation. Offenders will incur prison sentences of up to two years and fines up to 30,000...

    Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have imaged what may be water vapor plumes erupting off the surface of Jupiter's moon Europa. This finding bolsters other Hubble observations suggesting the icy moon erupts with high altitude water vapor plumes. The observation increases the possibility that missions to Europa may be able to sample Europas ocean without having to drill through miles of ice. Europas ocean is considered to be one of the most promising places that could potentially harbor life in the solar system, said Geoff Yoder, acting associate administrator for NASAs Science Mission Directorate in Washington. These plumes, if...

    It has long puzzled scientists why, after 3 billion years of nothing more complex than algae, complex animals suddenly started to appear on Earth. Now, a team of researchers has put forward some of the strongest evidence yet to support the hypothesis that high levels of oxygen in the oceans were crucial for the emergence of skeletal animals 550 million years ago. The new study is the first to distinguish between bodies of water with low and high levels of oxygen. It shows that poorly oxygenated waters did not support the complex life that evolved immediately prior to the Cambrian...

Advocates of the seamless garment approach to moral issues and social justice, promoted by the late Cardinal Joseph Bernardin, often use it to suggest a moral equivalency between issues like abortion, poverty, and immigration. The hard truth is that not all injustices in the world are equal, wrote Gomez. We can understand this perhaps better about issues in the past than we can with issues in...

The origin of life appears at the moment to be almost a miracle, was the way Francis Crick described it, so many are the conditions which would have had to have...

    California Department of Justice agents have raided the home of David Daleiden, the anti-abortion activist who targeted women's healthcare group Planned Parenthood with a series of undercover videos, his attorney said on Wednesday. Daleiden and his group, the Center for Medical Progress, began releasing videos in mid-2015 purporting to show Planned Parenthood officials trying to negotiate prices for aborted fetal tissue. Under federal law, donated human fetal tissue may be used for research, but profiting from its sale is prohibited. Planned Parenthood denied the accusation and called the probe politically motivated. Planned Parenthood said the raid showed Daleiden was "paying...

    Blessed Are Those Who Die in the Lord – A Meditation on the Christian Attitude toward Death Msgr. Charles Pope • March 29, 2016 • Catholic Standard Photo by Mike HoytThe recent death of Mother Angelica provoked the expected saddness at the passing of such a great woman. Indeed, her vivacious and plain-spoken presence has long been missed during these years of her declining health. She called this her time of purgatory and purification. In an extraordinary grace, the Lord called her at 5:00 PM on Easter Sunday, likely the very time at which He was making His first...

    For most pro-lifers, the answer to when human life is worthy of protection is clear: at the moment of conception. But some pro-choice protesters at the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday gave answers that either do not hold up to any introspection, or are hardly answers at all. Protesters from both sides gathered in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building for oral arguments in a potential landmark abortion case, Whole Womans Health v. Hellerstedt. The case involves a Texas law that protects womens health and welfare by requiring abortion clinics to meet the kinds of medical and safety standards...
