    President Donald Trump took another step to defund the abortion industry Monday through a new proposed rule to expand the Mexico City Policy. The pro-life policy has been in place during Republican presidential administrations since Ronald Reagan, defunding the International Planned Parenthood Federation and other abortion groups of hundreds of millions of tax dollars. But Trump has done more to protect life than other Republican presidents. In 2017, he expanded the policy to cut off more streams of revenue to international non-governmental agencies (NGOs) that promote and/or provide abortions. The rule defunded Planned Parenthood’s international arm of about $100 million...

    [Barf Alert] ‘Stunning irony’: Pro-abortion Biden quotes St. John Paul II’s famous motto in slam against Trump 'Biden flip-flopped in order to get his party’s nomination, endorsing taxpayer funded abortion throughout pregnancy, whereas Saint John Paul II tirelessly proclaimed that ‘The Gospel of life is at the heart of Jesus' message' September 11, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – In a rare televised address characterized by Tucker Carlson as “The most dishonest speech ever given by a major presidential candidate,“ Democratic nominee Joe Biden spoke before a group of approximately half-a-dozen reporters, and no audience, in Pittsburgh on August 31. Capping off his remarks,...

    Freshman Sen. Ben Sasse insists he’s not a leading man in the GOP’s script to replace Obamacare, but he’s playing a key set-up role just three months into his tenure on Capitol Hill. The Nebraska Republican filed legislation last week — the plainly titled “Winding Down Obamacare Act” — that would fill the gap should the U.S. Supreme Court rule the Obama administration is wrongly paying billions of dollars in tax subsidies to health care insurance customers in two-thirds of the states.

    During the Republican National Convention (RNC), you heard from many formerly forgotten Americans like me who learned, for better or for worse: politics is going to get into your life whether you get into politics or not. When I survived a notoriously deadly medical error five years ago—only to be diagnosed with a rare and terminal bone cancer—I expected my health decisions to be personal not political. But Joe Biden and the Democrats had other plans.I discovered my healthcare “rights” were rights I didn’t want—the right to marijuana, opioids and assisted suicide. I was told I was a burden to my...
  • Cardinal: Pandemic May Have Accelerated Secularization of Europe by 10 Years

    CNA Staff, Sep 4, 2020 / 06:00 am MT (CNA).- A cardinal has suggested that the coronavirus pandemic may have accelerated the secularization of Europe by 10 years. In an interview with L’Osservatore Romano Sept. 2, Cardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich said he believed that the number of Catholics going to church would decrease as a result of COVID-19. Asked whether he thought the Church in Europe would emerge stronger or weaker from the pandemic, he said: “I think about my country: we will be reduced in number. Because all those who no longer came to Mass, because they came only for...
  • Yes, Joe Biden Is a Catholic in Name Only. Lou Holtz was right. Biden accepts donations from Planned Parenthood to endorse abortion without restrictions from conception to birth and even after. He violates a basic tenet of Catholic doctrine and faith.

    nd so is Nancy Pelosi, Dick Durbin, and a bevy of other liberal Democrats who are “personally opposed’ to abortion” while giving lip service to a basic tenet of their alleged faith. To be sure you cannot judge what’s in someone’s heart and soul and you should not judge lest ye be also judged by the same standards. But it has also been said by someone with authority that by their fruits ye shall know and the fruits of the efforts of Joe Biden and others to preserve the “right” to an abortion and the funding of Planned Parenthood has...

    (LiveActionNews) — A common narrative in our society is that, by opposing abortion and infanticide, Christians are conducting a “war on women.” However, in a fascinating study entitled “The Rise of Christianity,” published by Princeton University Press, sociologist Rodney Stark argues that the phenomenal growth of “the obscure, marginal Jesus movement” was due in large part to women. Stark argues that early Christianity was “especially attractive to women” because “within the Christian subculture women enjoyed far higher status than did women in the Greco-Roman world at large.”Furthermore, Stark argues that the Christian opposition to abortion and infanticide was one of...

    The final frontier is continuing to bring audiences inclusive characters played by members of underrepresented communities in Hollywood. The third season of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery will introduce the first non-binary and transgender characters in Gene Roddenberry’s iconic franchise that celebrates diversity via a sci-fi lens. Blu del Barrio will make their screen acting debut as the non-binary character Adira, who is highly intelligent with a confidence and self-assurance well beyond their years. They will find a new home on the USS Discovery and form an unexpected bond with Lt. Commander Paul Stamets (Anthony Rapp) and Dr. Hugh...

    Pelosi Targets Hyde Amendment Prioritizes abortion funding for 2021 WASHINGTON (ChurchMilitant.com) - The Hyde Amendment will become history if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi makes good on her threats. The Los Angeles Times reported on Friday that Pelosi, the highest-ranking anti-Catholic in Congress, told House Democrats she's planning to defund the Hyde Amendment in 2021. This would force taxpayers to fund U.S. abortions. The Times notes this is a change of direction for today's Democrats: The plan to oppose the restriction on government money reflects the dramatic and widespread reversal of opinion on the subject that Democrats have undergone in the last five years....

    One party stands for life, freedom, and unalienable rights. The other stands for raw power. NRO’s Jim Geraghty in his daily column indulged one of the NeverTrump favorite rhetorical devices: That the president is just as bad for the Republic as the radical Democrats, and neither side “wants to solve real problems.” Apart from the common mistaken notion that the Founders created our political order “to solve problems” rather than protect the liberty of states, towns, civic society, families, and individuals, this tic often obscures an unwillingness to identify clearly those guilty of creating conflict and disorder by equally apportioning...

    Gloom and Doom Francis: "We Are Running Out of Time" “Climate restoration” and combatting a “climate emergency” are for Francis of utmost importance, he writes in a September 1 message for a World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Francis is full of gloom and doom, “We are running out of time” and “Creation is groaning.” He wants to “listen to the land” to hear “the voice of creation,” “We need to do everything in our capacity to limit global average temperature rise under the threshold of 1.5°C enshrined in the Paris Climate Agreement, for going beyond that...

    A Boston priest has apologized for a social media post in which he described himself as “pro-choice” and endorsed former vice president Joe Biden. The post, made Sunday, received widespread media attention and prompted a statement from Cardinal Sean O’Malley. “Please accept my apology for the confusion and upset caused by the Facebook post concerning the presidential election and expectant women carrying their children to birth,” wrote Monsignor Paul Garrity, pastor of the Lexington Catholic Community parish, on Facebook the evening of August 27. In his original Aug. 23 Facebook post titled “I AM PRO-LIFE AND SUPPORT JOE BIDEN,” Msgr....

    The Vatican Goes to Bat for Biden FrancisChurch provides him with cover. In 2016, the Vatican was pulling for Hillary Clinton. Just days before the presidential election, Pope Francis renewed his criticism of politicians who speak about erecting “walls.” This led Slate and other publications to run such headlines as “It Sure Sounds Like Pope Francis Doesn’t Think Americans Should Vote for Trump.” Several Francis-friendly prelates ran interference for Hillary Clinton. San Jose’s bishop, Patrick McGrath, wrote a letter to his flock in which he said that Donald Trump’s complaint of a rigged system “borders on the seditious.” According to...

    Dismissed by some critics as a needless origin story, HBO's 'Perry Mason' reboot is exactly the type of high-minded storytelling we need today. This article contains spoilers. The man from the country has not expected such difficulties: the law should always be accessible for everyone, he thinks, but as he now looks more closely at the gatekeeper in his fur coat, his large pointed nose and his long, thin, black Tartar’s beard, he decides that it would be better to wait until he gets permission to go inside. — Franz Kafka, “Before The Law” Franz Kafka hated the draconian bureaucracies...

    The Democratic National Convention didn’t have quite the same sparkle on the small screen, but the themes of this election were clear, including calls to join in the social change urged by Black Lives Matter advocates. There is a big difference between the political organization with that name, which others have well documented, and the principle at stake. As a nation, we should pay attention to things that harm our fellow citizens and work to address those issue. But if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris we’re truly interested in tackling systemic racism, they would defund Planned Parenthood. As Planned Parenthood’s...

    A pastor of a Georgia megachurch who also is running for U.S. Senate said last week he believes legalized abortion is “consistent with” Christianity and he would “fight” to ensure it remains legal. Raphael Warnock, senior pastor at Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, and a Democratic candidate trying to unseat Republican U.S. Sen. Kelly Loeffler in November’s election, made the comments to WGAU’s Tim Bryant. Bryant asked Warnock how the pro-choice views of the Democrat Party “square with” his “role as a minister, a leader of a church, a man of God.” “I believe that healthcare is a human right,”...

    Pope Francis Must Make the Truth Clear and Apologize Pope Francis has a long history of saying things that seem muddled. This causes confusion and frustration to a great many Catholics, myself included. I am no learned scholar or gifted theologian. I am an ordinary laywoman. But it is that qualification — woman — that prompts me to speak about the most recent headline involving the Holy Father: Pope Francis praises nun for opening ‘trans home’ for men claiming to be women, calls them ‘girls.’ The article at Life Site News explains: Sister Mónica Astorga Cremona, 53, known locally in...

    For Brad Mole, venturing into Republican politics didn’t start with a sudden awakening to conservatism. It was his religious upbringing and way of life that brought him to the Republican party. “My faith pushed me more toward policies that better reflected my upbringing,” he said. “I began understanding that the teachings I was raised with were more reflected in a party that not many around me identified with.” The son of a preacher in the Lowcountry region of South Carolina, Mole is now taking his politics a giant leap forward, challenging the Democrat Joe Cunningham for his US congressional seat....

    The U.S. bishops’ pro-life committee praised the Trump administration on Thursday after a federal ethics advisory board recommended against federal funding of fetal tissue research. The Human Fetal Tissue Research Ethics Advisory Board of the National Institutes of Health (NIH)—set up by the Trump administration to review grant proposals for federally-funded fetal tissue research conducted outside of NIH facilities—issued its report on Tuesday. In its report, the advisory board said that members voted to withhold federal funding of 13 different fetal tissue research proposals, and voted not to withhold funding of one such proposal. In response, Archbishop Joseph Naumann of...
