St. Ephrem on the midwives of Exodus

June 11, 2013

Because Pharaoh was careful not to pollute the river with corpses, he summoned the midwives in order to make them murderesses.  By his authority he made them the opposite of their titles, since he imagined he would turn physicians into executioners. (more…)

Walk for Life 2011

March 9, 2011

This past year has shown an increase in activity for those who support abortion, as can be seen from the increased push for it in the UN to its infiltration into the health care reform that was proposed and passed.  Since the landmark and unjust ruling in 1973, abortion has been a mainstay of the attack on human dignity, the protection of the innocent and their right to life.  Why is there this concerted effort to undermine our social fabric and promote the culture of death through abortion, contraception, and euthanasia?

And this walk for me was to serve as a great source of hope. (more…)

abortion and rape

September 7, 2008

It has been a while since I have posted, and I apologize. Also, this is my first post that deals with a current issues.

In a recent discussion, there was an argument regarding the issue of abortion in the case of rape. Often, the accusation of callousness is thrown against those who oppose abortion even in the case of rape, but in truth it is logical and ultimately an issue of love.

First, the logic. The pro-life movement is about saving the innocent unborn children from the massacre waged against them. The unborn innocent are entitled to a right to life which should not be denied them. As the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith states: “The tradition of the Church has always held that human life must be protected and favored from the beginning, just as at the various stages of its development” {for the complete document see here}.
