LOUIS, Missouri, May 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of St. Louis, led by the Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson, has drawn a line in the sand for the protection of innocent human life.

May 23, 2017 World News Comments Off on Planned Parenthood Closing Multiple Abortion Clinics in Iowa After State Defunds It

The abortion chain Planned Parenthood announced plans Thursday to close four Iowa clinics as a result of a new state law that defunds it.

May 21, 2017 World News Comments Off on Graduates walk out on Pence at Notre Dame commencement

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — Dozens of graduates and family members silently stood and walked out Sunday as Vice President Mike Pence began his address at Notre Dame’s commencement ceremony. Pence, the former governor of Indiana, was invited to speak after Notre Dame students and faculty protested the prospect of President Donald Trump being invited to become the seventh U.S. president to give the commencement address. Pence spoke briefly of Trump, praising his speech to the leaders of 50 Arab and Muslim nations earlier in the day in Saudi Arabia. Pen

President Trump has nominated Callista Gingrich, the wife of former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), as ambassador to the Holy See, the White House announced Friday.

The nomination follows months of speculation and vetting that at one point, according to a New York Times report, nearly drove Gingrich to withdraw herself from consideration.

The murder case of Blessed Oscar Romero has been reopened

May 20, 2017 World News Comments Off on The murder case of Blessed Oscar Romero has been reopened

San Salvador, El Salvador, May 19, 2017 / 01:14 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A nearly 40 year-old murder case was reopened this week to properly prosecute the suspected killer behind the Salvadorian archbishop’s martyrdom. Because of an amnesty law that prohibited the prosecution of criminal acts stemming from the El Salvador Civil War, the alleged murderer of Archbishop Oscar Romero was never convicted of any crime. The law was lifted last year by the country’s constitutional court, reopening cases from 1980 to 1992.

This Sunday, vice president Mike Pence will return to his home state of Indiana to deliver the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame. For the third time in several years, the school’s graduation ceremony will be plagued by controversy, as a group of students plans to walk out during Pence’s speech. The students’ main grievance is that Pence’s supposedly “anti-LGBT” record as governor of Indiana is harmful to vulnerable members of the Notre Dame community. The group’s Facebook event indicates that around 70 students have signed up to take part in the walkout, and about 2,000 seniors will graduate from the university on Sunday Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/447790/notre-dame-walkout-mike-pence-speech-planned

Planned Parenthood is Ditching the Failed “Pro-Choice” Label. Here’s Why

May 12, 2017 World News Comments Off on Planned Parenthood is Ditching the Failed “Pro-Choice” Label. Here’s Why

The “pro-choice” label has not been working out so well for the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. The labels pro-choice and pro-life have been used for decades to help identify people’s positions on abortion, but young adults seem to be moving away from those labels. Abortion activists often refer to themselves as “reproductive rights” advocates rather than “pro-choice” now; and Planned Parenthood has been following the trend. This week, the abortion chain’s CEO Cecile Richards talked with the pro-abortion blog Bustle about the shift in the rhetoric. “I think the language is completely outdated, and in f

Bishop Conley: The Pro-Choice Political Dictatorship of Relativism

May 9, 2017 World News Comments Off on Bishop Conley: The Pro-Choice Political Dictatorship of Relativism

In 2005, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who would soon be elected Pope Benedict XVI, preached that “we are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one’s own ego and desires.” In the past month, we’ve learned that relativism can be a very cruel dictator. Most basically defined, the pro-choice political position is that the “right to choose” is sacrosanct, and that no one may legitimately question the moral choices of another with regard to abortion. That overwhelming and indisputable scientific evidence regarding the beginning of unique human life through conception, has no place in the political conversatio

These Republicans Voted Against the Bill to Defund the Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

May 6, 2017 World News Comments Off on These Republicans Voted Against the Bill to Defund the Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz

Republicans in the House of Representatives yesterday voted for a Reconciliation bill that would defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. This was the second attempt to get enough votes on the reconciliation bill that would not only defund the nation’s biggest abortion corporation but also repeal major portions of Obamacare. The first attempt to pass the bill saw liberal Republicans oppose the repealing Obamacare portion and conservative Republicans not happy as well because it did not repeal Obamacare fully. Republican leaders reworked the legislation, called the American Health Care Act, and Republicans passed the measure despite

Cecile Richards Comes Unglued After House Defunds Planned Parenthood: Republicans Hate Women

May 6, 2017 World News Comments Off on Cecile Richards Comes Unglued After House Defunds Planned Parenthood: Republicans Hate Women

Planned Parenthood abortion business president Cecile Richards it’s not happy that the House of Representatives voted yesterday to defund Planned Parenthood. The main response of the CEO of the nation’s biggest abortion conglomerate can be summed up in three words: Republicans hate women. Even though the legislation has nothing to do with women’s health care or its access and even though Planned Parenthood is predominately an abortion business that provides no legitimate medical care or health services to pregnant women, that didn’t stop Cecile Richards from falsely characterizing the vote as one denying women appropriate health care.
