Don't be afraid to speak up for the unborn

Why should we be afraid to speak up for this little one?
 
It was no surprise to see US President Barack Obama hogging the headlines yesterday in order to make his big pitch for a greener United States. This was, after all, the day on which the true evil of his great friend Planned Parenthood was debated in the Senate.
 
 
It was extremely sad, but at the same time fascinating, to watch the heated exchanges around the sale of baby body parts and the wider issue of abortion so passionately debated at this level for around three and a half hours.

Pro-life alternative to Planned Parenthood starts to impact on US abortion numbers

Kathleen Eaton Bravo is herself a post-abortive mother
 
Obria medical clinics.  Never heard of them?  That’s understandable, because they only exist in the United States.  But these clinics are fast becoming abortion giant Planned Parenthood’s worst nightmare as they fight against the anti-life tide to offer people an alternative to abortion.
 
 
Kathleen Eaton Bravo, who foundedBirth Choicemore than thirty years ago and who is credited with kickstarting the Obria model, says that Obria has gone from saving around four babies in 2006 to almost 1,000 in 2014; and this appears to be having a negative impact on the number of abortions performed at Planned Parenthood.

Conference on evangelisation considers the role of Catholic apologetics in today's relativist world

Dr Scott Hahn speaks at the conference
 
A conference titled 'Encountering Christ: Apologetics and and the New Evangelisation' has brought together a number of high profile theologians and scholars to shed light on the issue of Catholic apologetics in today's relativist world.
 
 
Cardinal Francis Arinze, Dr Scott Hahn and Patrick Madrid were among the speakers at the event which attracted a crowd of 450 people at Christendom College, Front Royal in the USA.
 

Moving story of cancer sufferer who put her child first

Ashley Caughey and partner Jonathan
 
A young pregnant American woman has shown incredible courage in the face of pain and adversity by continuing with her pregnancy and eventually giving birth to her baby daughter, despite being diagnosed with cancer.  For many, the potential for chemotherapy causing damage to the child would be enough for them to abort, but Ashley Caughey had different ideas.  Indeed Ashley decided that, rather than risk damage to her baby, she would delay cancer treatment until the baby was born.

This Catholic priest brought 15,000 young people to their feet with his pro-life story

Father Mario Majano
 
Father Mario Majano, a 28 year old Catholic priest from Washington DC, recently brought a 15,000 strong crowd to its feet during the Verizon Centre Mass for Life event in the capital.  The Mass was a follow-on from last week's March for Life which attracted hundreds of thousands of people.
 
Father Majano's story is one which brought tears to many people in the huge audience, but it was the tears of one woman in particular which made the headlines.

Christianity still the big player in US Congress

 
The religious composition of the 114th United States Congress (House of Senate and House of Representatives) has been revealed and it confirms once again that Christianity is the dominant faith in US politics.
 
Congress, which will have a Republican majority in both chambers of the legislative body for the first time since 2006, is 92% Christian (including 57% Protestant and 31% Catholic). 
 
Interestingly, those members who claim to be religiously unaffiliated is 0.

Poll suggests that Brits and Americans are light years apart on the origins of life

 
A recent YouGov poll has unearthed an astonishing difference in attitudes between British people and American people when it comes to the origins of life. 
 
In answer to the question ‘How do you personally think life on Earth began originally?’ a paltry 15% of Brits polled said that life was created by God.  This is compared to a much more respectable 53% of Americans.
 
In another interesting statistic, 19% of the Britons polled said that life was brought to earth by an older, alien civilisation from elsewhere in the universe.
