Washington D.C., Nov 10, 2015 / 03:45 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Our Lady. Blessed Mother. Virgin Mary. Queen of Peace. Theotokos. Handmaid of the Lord. Mother Mary. These are just some of the titles used to describe the young woman to whom an angel appeared some 2,000 years ago with the message that she would conceive and bear the Savior of the World. Mary has very few recorded words in the New Testament, but her worldwide devotion spans across time, cultures and even religions.

A Catholic bishop in Indiana is calling out a Catholic college for promoting Planned Parenthood and abortion this week. As LifeNews previously reported, Saint Mary’s College, a Catholic school in Notre Dame, Indiana, hosted the large pro-Planned Parenthood display in response to a pro-life display held on campus earlier in October. The pro-Planned Parenthood display involved 1,852 planted in the ground to “represent the non-abortion-related services offered by Planned Parenthood,” according to the Church Militant. The pro-abortion display was a project of the Saint Mary’s Feminists United Student Group. The group organized the display to counter a pro-life display by Students for

BRYAN, TX, November 12, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The former Planned Parenthood abortion facility where Abby Johnson once worked as director is now a pro-life haven for women in crisis pregnancy.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court agreed Friday to settle a widespread dispute between the Obama administration and religious non-profits over insurance coverage for birth control, which is sure to elevate issues of religious freedom and reproductive rights in next year’s presidential campaign. The justices agreed to hear a challenge to the Affordable Care Act from seven different non-profit organizations claiming religious objections, marking the second time in three years the so-called “contraceptive mandate” has come before the court — and the fourth time in five years it has faced off against President Obama’s signature health care law.

Paul Ryan Doubts Planned Parenthood Can Be Defunded ( Then what is the purpose of an investigative committee?)

November 3, 2015 World News Comments Off on Paul Ryan Doubts Planned Parenthood Can Be Defunded ( Then what is the purpose of an investigative committee?)

Though the national pro-life community says newly elected House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is committed to its cause, Ryan is warning that he doubts Planned Parenthood can be defunded. Observing that President Obama is pro-abortion and the Senate’s process has been “difficult,” Ryan said on CNN’s State of the Union, “I think we need to be very clear about what we can and cannot achieve and not set expectations that we know we can’t reach given the constraints of the Constitution.” “I don’t think Planned Parenthood should get a red cent from the taxpayer; I’ve always believed that, even before these disgusting videos came out,” Ryan continued. “But I believe we need to do our oversight. We’re just beginning…Continue Reading

October 30, 2015 World News Comments Off on Diocese bans Alinsky critic from speaking on church property

For many years, Catholic researcher Stephanie Block has been exposing the link between the American Catholic church bureaucracy – which has effectively become another arm of the Democratic Party – and the supporters of radical leftist Saul Alinsky (who influenced President Obama) and his “machine.” Now, at least one Catholic diocese is forbidding her from speaking on church property. Ms. Block was recently scheduled to speak at St. John the Baptist Church in Costa Mesa, California. However, just a few days before her scheduled talk, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange informed the parish that she was not permitted to speak on church property. The organizer was able to secure a local college auditorium on short notice, so Ms. Block’s…Continue Reading

American Girl Disappoints Conservative Customers

October 30, 2015 World News Comments Off on American Girl Disappoints Conservative Customers

One Million Moms is extremely disappointed that American Girl, owned by Mattel, is promoting sin in the November/December 2015 issue of its magazine. On pages 28-31 of the magazine is an article titled “Forever Family” about adoption from foster care, which would have been wonderful if they had not decided to include a large picture of a girl with her two dads, Daddy and Dada, and three other adopted children. 1MM supports adoption and taking care of orphans as we are biblically instructed to do in Psalm 82:3, but American Girl could have focused the article on the child and not about the parents since it is a magazine for children. The magazine also could have chosen another child to…Continue Reading
