Transgender people are suffering, and indulging their delusions will not help them

Not long ago, Pope Francis stirred controversy in a discussion about so-called “transsexuals.” The occasion was a press conference, where he told the story of meeting a person born a female who, even as a girl, had felt herself to be a boy. As the pope described it, “he” had undergone surgery and then married. Later, “he” had written to the pope, who had agreed that “he,” “with his wife,” could visit him in the Vatican. …

Why Normal People Should Care About “Baby Busts”

  Long, long ago, when Anne’s parents were in college (sorry, mom and dad), demographers made an observation: they saw that for most of human history, even though couples were having far more than two children, mortality was also very high. The result was that populations either stayed the same or grew very slowly. Then, with the advent of modern medicine, our life expectancy doubled, and then doubled again. And, not unexpectedly, our population doubled, …

Women Deliver: Gates Global Push for Abortion Continues

The Malaysia conference highlights how to market a drug for one thing and use it for another, how euphemisms work and how it is up to government to create demand for contraception. It's being billed as "the largest global event of the decade to focus on the health and empowerment of girls and women." But it is also very obviously a conference designed to reduce populations of developing nations by promoting a Western-style sexual revolution …

Demographics as the Grim Reaper

More and more countries are hearing the death knell of low birth rates. We live in an age unique in human history. Per capita incomes have never been higher, lifespans have never been longer, and people are better fed and educated than ever before. At the same time, birth rates have fallen to historically low levels. In fact, they have fallen to levels so low that they will extinguish whole populations unless something is done. …

Prophecies of Humanae Vitae

On this, the anniversary of Humanae Vitae, I urge you to pray for the bishops, that they may have the courage to preach the fullness of the Truth where human sexuality is concerned. And also that you sign the petition of the Bellarmine Forum, drafted by my great friends Prof. Charles Rice and Dr. Christopher Manion, that will be sent to the bishops to encourage them. The link may be found at

Love and HIV/AIDS

Pope Benedict understands that condoms not only cannot stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, but that they have arguably contributed to its spread. For this he is reviled by the AIDS Establishment. Catholics, however, should not fall prey to its deceits and falsifications. Anyone who is confused about whether condoms have a role in stopping the HIV/AIDS epidemic need only consider the empirical evidence, by now overwhelming, that the Church has been right all along. Chastity …

New Pill, Same Misinformation

The abortion industry, feminist groups, and the lamestream media are wild with excitement over this new addition to the arsenal of the sexual revolution, but we are forced to ask an obvious question: How can a pill “prevent” pregnancy five full days after sex? Vol. 12/No. 16 On June 17th, a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) panel unanimously approved a new abortifacient drug, cutely called “ella,” moving it one step closer to final approval and …

Merck Researcher Admits: Gardasil Guards Against Almost Nothing

On the morning of 2 October 2009, one of us (Joan) joined an audience of mostly health professionals and listened as Dr. Diane Harper, the leading international developer of the HPV vaccines, gave a sales pitch for Gardasil. Gardasil, as you may know, is the new vaccine that is supposed to confer protection against four strains of the sexually transmitted Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Dr. Harper came to the 4th International Public Conference on Vaccination to …
