The pro-life effort is about defending the intrinsic value of each and every human life.

We often portray our struggle as a simple battle between life and death. We aim to defeat a culture of death. We celebrate and defend life. But the pro-life challenge is not simply to counter abhorrent practices like abortion, euthanasia, or eugenics along with the social systems and cultures that favor them. Our challenge is to define and uphold humanity for a world that has forgotten the sanctity of a truly human life. read more...

Defending preborn earthlings on Earth Day
2015.04.15 - 4:30pm - Rey Flores
Once again the environmentalist crowd is reminding us to hug a tree. However, this year is Earth Day's 45th anniversary, so these people are making it an even bigger deal than usual.

Never mind earth’s greatest resource—humanity itself. Who cares about protecting the preborn human being when you can save a whale? After all, the human parasite will only bring more destruction into the world through his or her indelible carbon footprint, right? read more...
Planned Parenthood asks: 'Why is it that sex ed isn't a part of the Common Core?'
2015.04.09 - 9:00am - Rita Diller
Planned Parenthood is pulling out all the stops to ensure that its “comprehensive sex education” is required in schools for children beginning in Kindergarten. Planned Parenthood was, in fact, a hidden partner in the writing of the National Sexuality Education Standards put together by the Future of Sex Education coalition, as American Life League has often reported. Those standards are already being put into place in schools in such unlikely places as Lawrence, Kansas. They are also ready to be incorporated quietly into Common Core, when parents have been sufficiently miseducated about them.

So it came as no surprise when Planned Parenthood recently tweeted the question: “Sex is something that is common to most humans, but why is it that #SexEd isn’t a part of the Common Core?” read more...

What if?
2015.04.08 - 11:00am - Melissa Pena
“What if?” These two tiny words, seemingly so innocuous by themselves, when put together have the power to haunt. “What if” I hadn’t gone to that party? “What if” I hadn’t let him hand me that last drink? 

We hear these two simple words uttered much too often by both teens and young adults today. It takes just one night of abandoning normal behavior to change the course of a life and force a person to make sudden decisions about the future. read more...
To restore a culture of life, reclaim the body
2015.04.06 - 9:00am - Anne R. MacLean
New York Times columnist David Brooks recently noted the visceral kind of cringe we experience when we hear that ISIS jihadis have decapitated yet another person. Brooks adeptly explained that the thought of a person’s head torn away from the rest of him triggers horror precisely because of its bold irreverence toward the human form. In Brooks’ words, the human body is “spiritualized matter,” and that is why we recoil when it’s defiled.

Brooks’ observations remind me of those Saint Pope John Paul II made when he warned against the Cartesian dualism permeating Western cultural thought. We have swallowed whole the pill first dished to us by seventeenth century philosopher and mathematician René Descartes, who gave us “I think, therefore I am.” Descartes and his philosophical progeny proposed a radical separation between the observable world and the “interior life” of man. This line of thought led also to a conceptual separation between the person and the body, between the spirit and the flesh. Indeed, modern culture has made this separation so completely that imagining the soul as literally wrapped up in and integrated with the body can feel awkward even to many practicing faithful. read more...
The two who stood witness: Mary and John
2015.04.03 - 9:00am - Jim Sedlak
Today we pause to remember a day in history when the Lord God, Jesus Christ, in humble obedience to His Father, suffered and died for the creatures He created. Never before, and not since, has the world witnessed anything that compares to this event.

Jesus, the Son of God the Father, traveled and taught for three years. He worked miracles—healed the sick, drove out demons, and raised people from the dead. He taught about love and peace, about humility and patience, and about obedience and suffering. Just days before His brutal death, He was welcomed jubilantly into Jerusalem. read more...
