In Ottawa, Dr. Edmond Kyrillos is one of three doctors who will not prescribe birth control. In a letter to patients of CareMedics Medical Clinic where Dr. Kyrillos is on staff, he says: Please be advised that because of reasons of ... (Continue reading)

Humanae Vitae and NFP: my testimony

Paulaudenece1977

In a recent interview with an Italian newspaper, Pope Francis was reported to express praise for Humanae Vitae, Pope Paul VI's encyclical on the regulation of birth in keeping with natural and Divine law. Pope Francis reportedly said that Pope Paul VI was "prophetic" and and that "had the courage to place himself against the majority, defending the moral discipline, exercising a culture brake, opposing present and future neo-Malthusianism." He indicated that the time had come to delve deeper into the encyclical and develop ... (Continue reading)

Dignity for All

baby

In all the debates that are going on in the world, there is, perhaps, none that are so relative as that which surrounds abortion, and each January brings that argument into the spotlight. Science tells us that life begins at conception, and yet, if someone wants an unborn child, then it is a baby, a blessing to be loved and cherished. But if no one wants it, if it is imperfect or for some other reason “undesirable,” then it is ... (Continue reading)

Autism and the Mentally Disturbed

You've likely heard about the letter from “one pissed off mother” that was delivered to the home of the grandmother of an autistic kid in Newcastle, Ontario. The vicious letter hit Facebook the other day and when I saw it, I hoped it was a scam because it was bad. When news bytes about the police investigations began turning up I was floored to find out that it was a real letter, written to a real family, about a real ... (Continue reading)

Kermit

I’ve been walking around the last few days with the name "Kermit" in my head and vomit close to the surface. You almost have to be made of Teflon to be able to stomach the events that are being laid out in a courtroom in Pennsylvania...tales so horrific it makes me wonder if history is repeating itself here and now and we’re stuck in Nazi Germany. The facts are as gruesome as some of the worst concentration camp stories, and ... (Continue reading)

Life, death, and lousy campgrounds

In the time that my family has been on the road, our journey has been predominantly dictated by where we my parents have to work, and since they work on railroad tracks, we usually end up in railroad towns. These are mostly small towns, but sometimes we end up in places that are actually still called villages—it says so on their garbage bins. One of the trickiest aspects of traveling through rural areas is finding a place to stay. In the ... (Continue reading)

Religious Environmentalism and Population Control

Seems like those who give their hearts and souls to environmentalism are the only canonized saints these days: those who fight the good fight for mother earth by religiously performing the rituals of recycling, reducing, reusing, composting, eating only local organic food, having urban gardens, organizing CSAs, etc. Seems to me they've misplaced their faith—living solely by human standards instead of God’s. I’m definitely not saying that all manner of "saving the earth" is intrinsically evil or against the teachings of the ... (Continue reading)

“This is MY Body—But I Don’t Want It!”

From the CCBR blog. Fellow feminists, In case you haven't noticed, women (or "womyn," if you prefer) are immensely powerful. And I'm not just talking "Lady Macbeth" meets "Charlie's Angels." While there is something to be said about feminine beauty and strength, our power lies in the very thing that makes us fundamentally different from men. In case you need a reminder, it's that women have the extraordinary ability to help create and facilitate the development of another human being—inside her ... (Continue reading)
