Euthanized With at Least 10 Years to Live

In another example of the twisted thinking of those who adhere to the culture of death, a man from the UK went to Switzerland for suicide by doctor (now legalized in Colorado as well) and the media reported it as a “brave” act, especially for his wife since she “risked prosecution in Britain to help her husband end his life.”

You see, from the perspective of the culture of death, it is “a brave act of love” when a wife helps her husband kill himself.

Texas Moves to Stop Fetal Body Parts Trafficking

Just in case you concluded that the undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress made no tangible difference to the state of abortion in the United States, new regulations (as reported by LifeSiteNews) from the Texas Department of Health and Human Services will require Texas abortion facilities to bury or cremate the bodily remains of aborted babies starting December 19.

Proponents of physician assisted suicide have described it as a means for attaining “death with dignity,” and they insist that it should be enshrined in law as a “right.”

Two Titans Lost in February

Two titans to the pro-life community were lost in February.

Nationally, the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia not only put in jeopardy several cases pending before the court, it left the court without the reasoned voice of a man who understood the natural law and who upheld the principles and limits of government as handed down to us by our nation’s founding fathers in the U.S. Constitution.

Merry Christmas 2015

Christians throughout the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ tonight, primarily because Christianity understands Jesus to be God incarnate, born of a woman named Mary.

However, even those who are not Christian can recognize the importance of birth. In fact, nearly everyone is cognizant of their own birthday, if not out of celebration, at least out of the need to be able to state our age for various necessary activities (such as doctor’s appointments, licenses, etc.).
