The Hyde Amendment is one of the most important pro-life achievements in U.S. history. But right now, it is under serious threat. For those who are unaware, the Hyde Amendment, named after pro-life Rep. Henry Hyde, is an amendment that has been appended to every appropriations (i.e., spending) bill since 1976.

“If the right to life is an inherent and inalienable right, it must surely exist wherever life exists. No one can deny that the unborn child is a distinct being, that it is human, and that it is alive. It is unjust, therefore, to deprive the unborn child of its fundamental right to life on…

Take, for instance, the Guttmacher Institute, one of the most powerful and extreme pro-abortion agencies on the planet.…

Protect Our Children from Exploitation and Pride Month

For Catholics, June is the month of the Sacred Heart, in which we recall and celebrate Christ’s redeeming, self-sacrificial love for us. For the world, however, June is now Pride Month – a month-long hedonistic carnival in celebration of a debased concept of “love”: one that in many cases reduces love to nothing more than…
