Can We Use Our Consciences on Contraception?

Surveys in many countries consistently show that most Catholics believe that decisions of conscience about contraception rightfully belong with those who must bear and rear children.  The legitimacy of teaching requires that it be embraced by the faithful. Your teaching has no such legitimacy.  It is a marginalized minority view [...]

Shouldn’t Every Child Be Wanted?

The three most popular pro-abortion slogans are “Woman’s body, woman’s choice!,” “Freedom of choice!” and "Every child a wanted child!" These slogans are catchy, and they appeal in a superficial manner to the sense of fairness in all of us.  However, it takes only a little thought to break through [...]

“Don’t Call Us ‘Pro-Abortion’ ― We’re ‘Pro-Choice’!”

There is great power in the labels we select for ourselves, as well in the ones we apply to our opposition.  One of the greatest marketing triumphs of the abortion movement was to call itself “pro-choice.” Origin of the "Pro-Choice" Label Dr. Bernard Nathanson, one of the founding members of [...]

I’m Personally Opposed to Abortion…

How Does Abortion Affect the United States?

Since 1967, when the first states legalized abortion in the U.S., there have been over 60 million abortions performed in the United States.  Eighteen percent of our nation's entire population has disappeared into the latter‑day extermination camps we know as abortion clinics. We have killed a vast number of children [...]

Does Pro-Life Rhetoric Lead to Violence?

Pro-abortionists frequently tell us to keep our opinions ― and even our science ― to ourselves. They say that we must not refer to abortionists as “baby killers” and to abortion as “murder.” 'Catholics’ for a Free Choice goes even further, claiming that anyone who says that preborn children are [...]

Shouldn’t Women Be Able to Control Their Own Bodies?

The battle over abortion and birth control in the United States has been raging for nearly a century.  A cartoon in the May 1919 issue of Margaret Sanger’s Birth Control Review shows a woman being crushed by a giant roll of paper labeled “Laws Controlling Women’s Bodies.” “Woman’s body, woman’s [...]

Is Abortion Really Safer than Childbirth?

In their efforts to legitimize and humanize a procedure that most people find unpalatable at best, pro‑abortionists often claim that abortion is much safer than childbirth. Let us examine the facts: is abortion safer than giving birth? The Pro-Abortion Argument For instance, the National Abortion Federation (a trade union for [...]

Should We Support Abortion to Preserve the Woman’s Mental Health?

Nothing exposes the dishonesty and corruption of the abortion industry more than the “mental health” exception for abortion.  Abortionists routinely abuse this exception, no matter how carefully and precisely lawmakers draft it. This kind of deception has been going on as long as there have been laws against abortion. Referring [...]
