    Americans should be outraged their government participates in the wide-scale human trafficking operation that created a market for harvesting the organs of murdered infants.This article contains disturbing information about human dismemberment.Last week, legal accountability group Judicial Watch dropped a bombshell: a nearly 600-page report proving the U.S. government has been buying and trafficking “fresh” aborted baby body parts. These body parts, purchased by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to “humanize” mice and test biologic drugs in scientific experiments, came from babies up to 24-weeks-old gestation, just weeks from being born.While Americans may be used to hearing pro-lifers beat the...

    Human beings bear the image and likeness of God. They are to be reverenced as sacred. Never are they to be used as a means to an end, not even to satisfy the deepest wishes of an infertile couple. Husbands and wives "make love," they do not "make babies." They give expression to their love for one another, and a child may or may not be engendered by that act of love. The marital act is not a manufacturing process, and children are not products. Like the Son of God himself, we are the kind of beings who are "begotten,...

    Almost half of women in 57 countries around the world are denied the freedom to decide on what to do with their own bodies, the United Nations said in a report on Wednesday. This includes issues around sex, contraception and health care. The My Body is My Own study lists attacks on women, including rape, forced sterilization, virginity tests and genital mutilation. The head of the UN’s sexual and reproductive health agency (UNFPA), Natalia Kanem, said: “In essence, hundreds of millions of women and girls do not own their own bodies. Their lives are governed by others.” Those other decision-makers...

    Kamala Harris on Tuesday said black women in the U.S. are more likely to die from pregnancy-related complications because, in part, of “systemic racial inequities.” The White House issued its first-ever presidential proclamation marking Black Maternal Health Week, where Harris claimed there are racial gaps in pregnancy and childbirth-related deaths and complications in the United States. “Black women in our country are facing a maternal health crisis. We know the primary reasons why: systemic racial inequities and implicit bias,” Harris said. “Black women deserve to be heard. Their voices deserve to be respected,” Harris said. “And like all people, they...
  • Pro-Abortion Billboards Claim Killing Babies in Abortion is "Just Between You & God"

    Across Kentucky, pro-abortion billboards are popping up with messages that try to justify the killing of unborn babies in abortions to Christians. WTVQ reports the billboards are a project of the Kentucky Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and they are located in Louisville, Nicholasville and Paducah. The messages include “Abortion: a personal decision between you and God,” “Good people have abortions. God knows and loves you,” and “Walk in my shoes before you judge my abortion.” The Rev. Diane Snowa, a board member of the pro-abortion group, said they want to counteract the Christian belief that abortion is a sin....

    Women seeking an abortion pill will not be required to visit a doctor’s office or clinic during the COVID-19 pandemic, U.S. health officials said Tuesday in the latest reversal in an ongoing legal battle over the medication. The Food and Drug Administration announced the policy change in a letter to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, one of several medical groups that has sued over the restriction put in place under the Trump administration. The FDA’s acting head, Dr. Janet Woodcock, said an agency review of recent studies “do not appear to show increases in serious safety concerns,” when...

    The Biden administration has abandoned women by supporting the removal of the Food and Drug Administration requirements surrounding the distribution of the mifepristone abortion regimen. Based on extreme lobbying efforts of the pro-abortion movement on this issue, Americans might conclude these regulations—the Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies, otherwise known as the REMS—were overly protective and put into place by the pro-life Trump administration; however, that is not the case.The REMS are the product of the pro-abortion Clinton administration’s effort to ensure that the abortion regimen—which carries life-threatening and health-endangering risks such as hemorrhage, infection, incomplete pregnancy, retained fetal parts, the...

    UK gov’t. predicts ‘third wave’ of COVID deaths ‘dominated’ by those who are vaccinatedLONDON, April 12, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — In official documents released by the U.K. government, models for the planned “third wave” of COVID-19 predicted that any hospitalizations and deaths would be “dominated” by people who had already been vaccinated.On March 31, the U.K. Scientific Pandemic Influenza Group on Modelling, Operational sub-group (SPI-M-O), released the latest document containing modeling predictions about the effect that the gradual easing of restrictions would have on the spread of infection, and subsequent hospitalizations and deaths.

    Why I Signed “To Awaken Conscience”The statement “To Awaken Conscience” on so-called “abortion tainted” vaccines was meant to propose an ideal, not give arguments. I signed it because I agree with that ideal. But a philosopher should have reasons too, and here I wish to give them. These reasons also explain why I reject the statement recently offered by some Catholics under the auspices of the Ethics & Public Policy Center (EPPC).In ethical questions, one has to follow the right method. Right method does not mean coming up with an argument that seems obvious to you, even if it implies...

    Catholic leaders in the state of Michigan are warning the public that Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines are made from the tissue of dead, mutilated fetuses. Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron and a coalition of six other Catholic leaders throughout the state have been sounding the alarm about these vaccines. They are demanding for public officials to be honest and transparent with the public about the troubling origin of these experimental vaccines. “It is morally permissible to receive the vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna. Neither of these vaccines have used cell lines originating in tissue taken from aborted...

    The case shows the judiciary is just as fractured as the rest of America, and leftist judges are defiantly ignoring Supreme Court and circuit precedent.On Friday, in a procedural oddity, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals voted to hear the initial appeal in Bristol v. Slatery as a full court, rather than allowing the case to proceed as normal before a three-judge panel. The case involved abortion, and the takeaways are two-fold: The judiciary is just as fractured as the rest of America, and leftist judges are defiantly ignoring Supreme Court and circuit precedent.To understand the significance of the Sixth...

    I've been getting a lot of mail from critics lately asking if I'm happy with the Biden administration. They point to some of the new president's executive orders — the one about the Keystone XL pipeline, or the one rescinding the "Mexico City" policy withholding funds from international organizations that perform or advocate for abortion. They ask, snidely, whether I'm proud of my vote for the Democrat. My answer is a resounding yes. It's not because I think Joe Biden will pursue a policy agenda I will agree with most of the time. It's because we just came within a...

Michael Olson: "The inherent dignity of human life requires that we not cling to this life."Texas bishops on Wednesday used the authority of the Catholic Church to justify robbing vital health decisions from patients or their families. Michael Olson, bishop of Fort Worth, testified at the Texas capitol in favor of placing treatment decisions [solely] into the hands of doctors and a so-called qualified third-party surrogate.During his testimony, Olson made a false comparison between choosing life and becoming transgender.Bp. Olson: "It's not unlike a patient that comes in and demands hormonal treatment at...

    As expected, a federal judge who has ties to Planned Parenthood permanently blocked undercover journalist David Daleiden this week from releasing additional videos that Daleiden says show evidence of infanticide in the abortion industry. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the permanent injunction at the request of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and demanded that Daleiden turn over the video footage, according to lawyers representing NAF. The order applies to about 200 hours of video footage that Daleiden and other undercover investigators with the Center for Medical Progress recorded at a NAF conference. Additionally, the judge granted NAF lawyers’ motion...

    State Senator Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach) is sponsoring legislation (SB245) that would make all abortions free in the State of California. In addition to using taxpayer funds to finance abortion-on-demand, her bill would also require all private insurance plans to cover abortions with no co-pays and no deductibles. "This legislation is needed both to protect the health of women and to reduce the frequency of child abuse," Gonzalez said. "No woman should be forced to give birth to an unwanted child. The government has an obligation to prevent these tragedies. By guaranteeing that every woman can get rid of her...

April 1, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Anti-Christian world powers that promote the culture of death are seeking to impose on the world’s population an implicit — though remote and passive — collaboration with abortion. Such remote collaboration, in itself, is also an evil because of the extraordinary historical circumstances in which these same world powers are promoting the murder of unborn children and the exploitation of their remains. When we use vaccines or medicines which utilize cell...
