Life Issues

Life Issues

The morality of the 21st Century will depend on how we respond to this simple but profound question: Does every human life have equal moral value simply and merely because it is human? Answer yes, and we have a chance of achieving universal human rights. Answer no, and it means we are merely another animal in the forest” (Wesley J. Smith, quoted from the About page at his blog, Human Exceptionalism).

The HHS Mandate: The Obama Administration’s Aggressive Abortion Agenda

Protect Religious Freedom, It's Not Just a Catholic IssueOn Feb 15 there was a special webcast about the HHS Mandate with Fr. Frank Pavone, Rep Chris Smith, and others. You can still listen to or download it and find other resources on the page.

Freedom of religion, conscience protection — relics of a bygone era? Learn more about the HHS Mandate and what it means to every person in the U.S.A.. It’s not about Catholics and it’s not about contraception. It’s about freedom. And the vanquishing thereof.

This is from 2012 but I’m keeping it here for historical archival purposes: Life issues are so important that they deserve a section all their own, so here it is. There are links about the HHS Mandate at the end of this page. Sign the petition to stop it. Visit the USCCB Religious Liberty PageRead the statement from the bishops after the Vice President made this false claim during the VP debate:

“With regard to the assault on the Catholic Church, let me make it absolutely clear. No religious institution—Catholic or otherwise, including Catholic social services, Georgetown hospital, Mercy hospital, any hospital—none has to either refer contraception, none has to pay for contraception, none has to be a vehicle to get contraception in any insurance policy they provide. That is a fact. That is a fact.”

Um, no, Mr. Vice President, that is not a fact. Read the statement from the USCCB, which they released the day after the debate in what may have been the fastest action ever taken by any group of bishops in the history of the Church. Please check out the links at the end of the page and take action: share information with your friends, family, co-workers. And in the upcoming election, please vote with your formed and informed Catholic conscience!
