November 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – On Monday, November 20, six pro-lifers will stand trial in a State of Virginia courtroom for their defense of the unborn—facing a possible jail term of up to 90 days. On Friday, September 15, 2017 in three different cities across the United States, pro-lifers entered abortion centers to talk to women scheduled for abortions. By refusing to leave the clinics when told to do so by law enforcement, they offered an act of non-violent defense of unborn children about to be aborted, resulting in the pro-lifers’ arrests. This defense of the unborn is called the Red Ro

Madrid, Spain, Nov 17, 2017 / 12:15 am (ACI Prensa).- Fr. Joseph of Jesus is a Chinese priest, faithful to the Catholic Church. Life is not easy for Catholics in China. Those who adhere to Rome are persecuted by the Chinese government, which only grants freedom of worship to those belonging to the state-controlled Patriotic Church. Fr. Joseph recently shared his story on the “In the Footsteps of the Nazarene” program by the EUK Mamie Foundation, run by the Home of the Mother of Youth congregation of religious sisters. His back faces the camera in the interview, and the precise details of his life in China, as well as his precise location – h

BALTIMORE, Maryland, November 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The U.S. bishops discussed the possibility of immigration being a moral rather than prudential issue Monday at their annual meeting, with one bishop suggesting that deportation could be a “sin that cries out to heaven” for vengeance and another saying “no legislation can be called intrinsically evil,” but our current immigration system could be. “I hear sometimes on television from our own Catholics is that this (immigration) is a prudential judgment” and “we’re not talking about an intrinsic evil,” said Bishop Oscar Cantú of the Diocese of Las Cruces, New Mexico.

Vatican Conference Invites Promoters of Euthanasia

In just a few days, from 16 to 17 November, the newly reformed Pontifical Academy for Life will host a conference in Rome on the topic of “End-of-Life Questions.” (Nota Bene: the event is already closed.) One of the announced speeches’ title is: “Euthanasia in the Netherlands: Balancing autonomy and compassion.” As this title indicates, the message of this new Vatican event might well be more heterodox than loyal Catholics would desire. The World Medical Association is co-hosting this event. Significantly, the Pontifical Academy for Life itself has not yet advertised this upcoming conference on its website. As the World Medical Association has announced, however, the

November 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Over the past two decades, it has slowly dawned on Christians that the implications of same-sex “marriage” are far greater for those who still believe in the traditional understanding of marriage than even the cynics first thought possible. The politicians, the academics, and the media have reached the collective conclusion that if gay “marriage” is a civil right, those who oppose it are not simply dissenters holdi

November 10, 2017 breaking Comments Off on Miracle Baby Born at 21 Weeks and 4 Days May be the Most Premature Survivor Ever

Doctors and families alike are celebrating the life of a little girl believed to be the most premature baby ever to survive outside the womb. Last week, the journal Pediatrics highlighted how the baby girl was born just 21 weeks and four days after conception at Methodist Children’s Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. The girl now is 3 years old, and her mother, Courtney Stensrud, told CNN that her daughter is thriving and loving life. Reports withheld the little girl’s name to respect her family’s privacy. “If you didn’t know that she was so preemie, you would think she’s a normal 3-year-old,” Stensrud said. “In her school, she is keeping up with all the other 3-year-olds. She loves playing with other kids. She loves…Continue Reading
