According to a WTAE News report, “getting access to Plan B, the emergency contraception pill is as easy as getting a soda,” at Shippensburg University in Pennsylvania. The so-called morning after pill is now sold in vending machines on campus. More…
I was stunned, when I read Ross Douthat’s op-ed, “The Abortion Media’s Blinders,” in The New Times’ Sunday Review, to find the most insightful, not to mention fair and balanced article yet written on the Planned Parenthood vs. Komen fiasco, which dominated the media’s attention at the end of last week. He hit the nail on the head when he More…

Hate is viral, according to the true sense of the term. It infects, burns, spreads, and sometimes even kills.

Beautiful things are happening throughout cyberspace and across our nation on the pro-life front these days. I’ve never seen so much enthusiasm for the dignity of life and protecting the rights of innocent unborn children as I have witnessed over the last couple of months.

The best thing about it is that, according to some, we’re just getting started. But wait, there’s more!
Yes, the title is correct, and I did intend to say “men.” Many acknowledge today that more needs to be done to help Catholic men know and live the faith.
