    December 18, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – One of the most influential evangelical Christian leaders in the United States says the sexual revolution began with the widespread availability of birth control. Dr. Albert Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, made the remarks Saturday on David Wheaton's "The Christian Worldview" radio show. “We are clearly at a very important turning point, but you have to go back to the early twentieth century when sexual revolutionaries largely funded an effort to separate sex and procreation, and that was birth control," Dr. Mohler said. "Most Christians seem to think today...

    A young mother's birth control pills helped cause her to have a stroke. Bethany Fonseca has a history of migraines, but one particular day, her headache was different. She took pain medication and was about to enter the shower when the room starting spinning and she fell on the floor. "I thought I was going to die," Bethany said. "My only thought ... was just, 'Let me see my kids again one more time.'" She tried getting up but kept falling on the floor. Eventually, an ambulance took her to Baptist South hospital. "They ran some tests, and they...

    Painting the Catholic Church as "out of touch" is like shooting fish in a barrel, what with the funny hats and gilded churches. And nothing makes it easier than the Church's stance against contraception. Many people, (including our editor) are wondering why the Catholic Church doesn't just ditch this requirement. They note that most Catholics ignore it, and that most everyone else finds it divisive, or "out-dated." C'mon! It's the 21st century, they say! Don't they SEE that it's STUPID, they scream. Here's the thing, though: the Catholic Church is the world's biggest and oldest organization. It has buried all...
  • What Is (and Isn't) at Stake for Obamacare in the Hobby Lobby Case

    the National Journal.com ^ | 6/24/2014 | Sam Baker
    The Supreme Court won't strike down Obamacare's contraception mandate, but a ruling for the law's challengers could still render the policy toothless for millions of women. The justices are set to rule any day now in a challenge to the birth-control mandate, and any decision against the policy would have ripple effects far beyond the two companies that filed this lawsuit. Just how far, however, depends on how broadly the Court rulesand it has plenty of options. No matter what happens, the Court won't strike down the entire mandate. The two companies that brought their challenge to the Supreme CourtHobby...

A group which calls itself the National Committee for Planned Parenthood has begun a nationwide campaign to have the promotion of birth control included in State and national health programs. The committee—which, according to propaganda sheets reaching our desk has a branch in Minnesota—is said to be composed of more than a thousand “leaders in American public life” who feel it necessary to focus public attention on the need for “planned parenthood,” especially among...

    In 1968, Pope Paul VI issued his landmark encyclical letter Humanae Vitae (Latin, "Human Life"), which reemphasized the Churchs constant teaching that it is always intrinsically wrong to use contraception to prevent new human beings from coming into existence. Contraception is "any action which, either in anticipation of the conjugal act [sexual intercourse], or in its accomplishment, or in the development of its natural consequences, proposes, whether as an end or as a means, to render procreation impossible" (Humanae Vitae 14). This includes sterilization, condoms and other barrier methods, spermicides, coitus interruptus (withdrawal method), the Pill, and all other such...

    Weve all run across the pill bug in our gardens. At the first sign of danger, the tiny paranoid crustacean suddenly turns into a ball in hopes the danger will have passed when he unrolls. That roly-poly bug can serve as a fair symbol of present-day U.S. foreign policy, especially in our understandable weariness over Iraq, Afghanistan, and the scandals that are overwhelming the Obama administration.

    Jillian Melchior makes the case for selling the pill over the counter. I couldnt agree more; women should not need a doctors permission to take a birth-control pill (or just about any other pill, for that matter). But regarding the argument that this measure will reduce abortion, I was compelled to check the data.As I argued two years ago, abortions by and large arent the result of poor access to birth control. Instead, most abortions happen because people intentionally engage in high-risk sexual activity and use abortion as a backup. But this is a country with a million abortions a...

    A powerful quote from a source that might surprise some readers:Beneath the issue of contraception is a question about the role ideals and norms play in our communal lives. Yes, they restrict our behavior in ways that are sometimes inconvenient. Yet in doing so, they intrinsically call us and our communities toward a life that we might not otherwise choose on our own. What's more, they amplify the need for repentance and reconciliation, rather than watering down such a need through the "pragmatic" concession to the fallenness of the world. We may occasionally fail to meet them. But confronting our...

  • Nuns on the Pill: An intelligent way to help holy women?

    December 12, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) Two Australian researchers have argued that the Catholic Church should make the oral contraceptive pill freely available to all her nuns to reduce the risk of those accursed pests, cancer of the ovary and uterus. The Comment that appeared in The Lancet December 8th stated that the worlds 94,790 nuns pay a terrible price for their chastity because not bearing children increased their risk of ovarian and uterine cancers. If the Catholic Church could make the oral contraceptive pill freely available to all its nuns, it would reduce the risk of those accursed pests, you...

    Pelosi avoids criticism of Obama, Sebelius on morning-after pillBy Sam Baker - 12/08/11 01:53 PM ET House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) avoided criticizing President Obama or Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius for the decision to overrule federal regulators and limit access to the morning-after pill. At a Thursday news conference, Pelosi said science should guide the decision about whether to make Plan B available without a prescription to girls younger than 17. But she did not criticize Sebelius for overruling scientists at the Food and Drug Administration to block wider access to Plan B. I have the...

    Left 'speechless' as Sebelius overrules FDA on access to morning-after pillBy Sam Baker - 12/07/11 06:28 PM ET In a decision steeped in 2012 politics, President Obamas top health official on Wednesday overruled government scientists to block wider access to the so-called morning-after pill. The decision to leave in place a requirement that women younger than 17 get a prescription for the drug was a huge surprise to liberal groups and advocates for the Plan B contraceptive, some of whom said they were left speechless by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebeliuss involvement. It came a day after Sebelius...
