Center For Disease Control Admits: NFP Works!



Young women are being taught to use the Morning-After Pill, but are deliberately not being told how it works.  At the same time, they are deliberately not being taught how to use Natural Family Planning, or NFP, which—even the CDC now admits—does work. For years, the Population Research Institute has warned about the dangers of contraception. Our founder, Father Paul Marx, O.S.B, never tired of explaining that the morning-after pill is an abortifacient. By design, it ends …

Escape from Abortion: A Review of unPlanned by Abby Johnson



I know something about dramatic conversions to the pro-life cause. I experienced one myself some years ago in a Chinese abortion clinic. I had never really thought about what an abortion entailed until I witnessed one with my own eyes. But I could not ignore the result — a dead baby and a mother deeply wounded in both body and spirit — and I turned away in horror.

Experiencing Humanity: Grassroots Films Reminds Us of Why We Fight



  24 March 2008     Vol. 10 / No. 12 EXPERIENCING HUMANITY: GRASSROOTS FILMS REMINDS US OF WHY WE FIGHT I’m sitting at a worn desk in the headquarters of Grassroots Films in Brooklyn, NY. Humming Macs surround me as the company dog, a sand-colored mutt named Daisy, wanders aimlessly around my feet.

President’s Page: Remembering Henry Hyde



One of the first times that I spoke to a pro-life group—back in the mid-eighties, I believe—Congressman Henry Hyde was there. The occasion was a Los Angeles Archdiocesan Pro-Life Congress. (This event, which the tireless Licia Nicassio formerly organized on an annual basis, has been scrapped and Licia’s pro-life office closed by Cardinal Mahoney in his relentless search for funds with which to pay his legal bills.) Meeting Henry Hyde I was new to the …
