Susan Caldwell: I have children thanks to IVF, but here’s why I would never, ever recommend it.

| April 1, 2017

You may have heard the recent news about IVF experts speaking out against the common practice of transferring multiple embryos to the uterus, published in the New York Times. The multiple-birth method has been normalized by clinics—hoping to enhance pregnancy rates to attract patients—but now experts are voicing concerns about a link between this practice and […]

Is There A Contraception Conspiracy?

| July 27, 2015

[Editor’s note: It’s not that hard to believe in conspiracy any more. While theorists are often characterized as building a false reality on a lot of speculation and little investigation and stirring up fears,  facts remain difficult things as Planned Parenthood just learned. Evil exists because the depravity of man exists. Whether we’re in the […]

Crohn’s Disease and the Pill

| March 19, 2015

Harvard gastroenterologist Dr Hamed Khalili’s study of 230,000 American women found that those who had used the pill for five years or more had a 300 percent higher risk of developing Crohn’s disease than those who had never used it. Dr Khalili explained that while oral contraceptive drugs do not directly cause Crohn’s disease, the […]

Contraception and Cancer

| February 23, 2015

The News Story – Why you’re still paying for birth control even though it’s “free” now Susie Poppick writes for TIME this week about her near-miss at having to fork over a $50 copay for her birth control. “Strange,” she thought, since she was sure that “preventative” health services like contraception were supposed to be free under […]

The Tragedy of the Sexual Revolution

| February 14, 2015

[Editor’s Note: An article from 2004 but as applicable today as ever. I would point out that it is not futile to argue. If the author really believed that he would not have finished writing the article. The advances that we’ve seen by the Pro-life movement are great examples of arguing the point and seeing fruit. Be […]

Carl Djerassi, inventor of the pill, dies

| February 3, 2015

As a public figure, he was above all an apologist for the pill, travelling widely to promote it and also to defend it against the likes of Germaine Greer — “always a vociferous opponent of the pill,” he noted in a 2007 interview with The Guardian — and Barbara Seaman, whose 1969 book The Doctor’s […]

The Ambiguous Legacy of The Pill

| December 3, 2014

By Jennifer Roback Morse at Mercatornet I am in the process of writing a book which argues that the Sexual Revolution has been a rich person’s hobby horse from the beginning. The rich and powerful like the idea of separating sex from child-bearing. While this idea is sometimes wrapped up in a disguise of helping woman […]

A NEW CANCER STUDY – AND THE MEDIA CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH

| August 30, 2014

On August 1, a cancer study, published in The Journal of Cancer Research and conducted by the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, stated that there is evidence that the link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer may in fact be greater than previous studies had indicated. Since the study was first published, there has been a flurry of […]

Don’t they know what “the pill” is for?

| August 26, 2014

From Large Family MotheringWhen people find out that I am the mother of 15 children, they have all sorts of things to say, although their comments seem to reveal three main trains of thought: I am an absolute idiot, dumber than a doorknob, unable to comprehend “what causes that.” I am an absolute saint imbued […]

Court Considering Impact of Hobby Lobby Decision on Washington Pharmacy Case

| August 4, 2014

SEATTLE – A federal appeals court in California is considering the impact of the Hobby Lobby decision on a separate case involving religious pharmacists in Washington state. The same legal organizations that helped to defend the popular craft chain, The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), are now fighting for the rights of […]

| July 9, 2014

The Supreme Court’s decision in favor of Hobby Lobby had nothing to do with the rights or wrongs of contraceptives. The morality of abortion and abortifacient drugs was not the issue. Neither was the scientific debate about how emergency contraceptives prevent pregnancy. The Supreme Court came down in support of Hobby Lobby, Conestoga, and Mandel […]

I Fight On Contraception Hill

| March 2, 2014

Contraception is one of the great scourges not just of our time but of all time. In two ways it sets men and women against their creator. First, because they choose disobedience over the clear teaching of the Church. Second, it says no to the creative work of our Lord. Both of these put their souls […]

Easy sex and booze used to sell ObamaCare

| November 16, 2013

The ad is part of the “thanks obamacare!” campaign targeting young Coloradans — and underscores how the law’s backers will say just about anything to lure young people to sign up for the new mandatory health coverage, an outcome that is critical to ObamaCare working as planned. The entire health-care overhaul relies on the young […]

Feminism Does Not Discriminate

| May 17, 2013

Growing up as a minority in the inner city, the word “feminism” was never mentioned. I may not have heard the word in my day-to-day living, but that doesn’t mean feminism wasn’t alive and thriving in the black community. During that time in my life, many mothers, including mine, wanted better for their daughters. Our […]

5 Reasons Behind the Abortion Industry Push for Chemical Abortions

| April 11, 2013

By Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D., NRL-ETF Director of Education & Research When RU-486, the abortion pill, was approved for sale in America in September of 2000, this two-drug chemical abortion technique didn’t simply appear out of the blue.  It was the result of the years of planning, research, and market analysis by the abortion industry, […]
