Built on lies: The pill kills truth
2015.03.26 - 9:00am - Rita Diller
From its earliest days, the development, research, and promotion of the pill were built on lies. The lies continue today. Women are irreparably harmed by those lies. Children are killed by those lies. Families are ripped apart by those lies. And society hangs in the balance because America has not been told the truth. As American Life League gears up for our 2015 Pill Kills National Day of Action on June 6, we will shed light on the lies that surround the pill and the resultant contraceptive culture—and we will expose the truth. Here are four ways that the pill kills truth.

1. Researchers lied about the purpose of the initial studies and gave the pill to mental patients without direct consent. When human trials of the pill began in 1954, Dr. Gregory Pincus and Dr. John Rock undertook a birth control study funded by Planned Parenthood. They lied and claimed that the study was about infertility. Fifty female infertility patients volunteered for the study, but the pill was also given to 12 female and 16 male psychiatric patients without their direct consent. read more...

The secular 'Twilight Zone'
2015.03.25 - 1:00pm - Rey Flores
Cue Twilight Zone music and pan into Rod Serling smoking a cigarette. His voice resonates: “Picture if you will, a Catholic teacher in a Catholic high school in a free country that affords us the right to free speech and freedom of religion. Now picture her being censored, admonished, and eventually fired from her teaching job.”

He continues, “Picture if you will, as well, the Saint Patrick’s Day parade in New York City. This is an annual celebration where, for decades, Catholic Irish-Americans celebrate their most revered saint who, legend has it, drove the snakes out of Ireland. But today, it is the snakes of sin that are driving the Catholics away from their own parade. You have just entered The Secular Twilight Zone.” read more...
Parents the primary educators of their children
2015.03.24 - 10:00am - Dr. Thomas Ward
It is a challenge to our families to replace today’s dominant culture of death with all its attacks on human normality: on life, love, sexuality, marriage, family, and indeed Christianity itself. A culture enforced on our families at home and brutally imposed upon the families in poor countries abroad. It is also a culture of planned demographic collapse.

The only protectors of children from the imposition of the values of this culture are their parents, their primary educators who, as in Germany and Sweden, will increasingly have little moral alternative to civil disobedience and imprisonment. read more...

To serve and protect: A dad's reflections
2015.03.23 - 11:00am - Kurt Kondrich
Can I hold my daughter please? My wife Margie delivered our daughter Chloe on May 16, 2003, and I knew there was something wrong in the doctor’s look and voice. Chloe aspirated during her entry into the world, and as they cleared her lungs I was relieved to hear a loud cry. Three years into my career as a police officer I had delivered a baby on a sidewalk, and I knew how important it was to hear that crying sound. The doctor approached us and stated in a very sterile, clinical voice that our daughter had characteristics of Down syndrome. I did not know much about this diagnosis, but I said to the masked physician, “Can I hold my daughter, please?” to which he responded, “You want to hold her?” I detected a surprise in his voice, but Chloe looked right into my eyes and I instantly fell in love with her.

If Chloe had been born in 1963 (my birth year) she would have been labeled uneducable, probably placed in an institution, and would have had a shortened life of exclusion. Thanks to the strong foundation provided by Early Intervention, along with a focus on abilities, today Chloe is thriving and excelling in her community, school, church, and family. read more...
Do Catholic leaders believe in sin anymore?
2015.03.20 - 11:00am - Jim Sedlak
If Catholic leaders do still believe in sin, many sure don’t act like it.

A secular dictionary defines sin as “an immoral act considered to be a transgression against divine law.” The Catechism of the Catholic Church contains the following definition in paragraph 1850: read more...
Boots on the ground: Archbishop shakes the foundation of Planned Parenthood in Kansas
2015.03.19 - 11:00am - Wednesday STOPP Report
When I read the article in the Catholic Leaven, my heart skipped a beat. Catholics in the archdiocese of Kansas City, Kansas, are going to stop Planned Parenthood. They are going to shut down Planned Parenthood’s abortion center in Overland Park, Kansas, where 100 babies are killed each week. They are going to do it with rosaries in hand, boots on the ground, and a bold public witness. They are going to do all this while offering hope and help at the epicenter of despair. They will succeed in closing Planned Parenthood. This is why: read more...
