Quick Hits on Covid: Ethical Vaccines, Unintended Experiments, by Phil Lawler

By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture – If you have been wearing a mask for the past several months, your immune system has not been getting its usual daily workout. That’s probably OK for adults, who over the years have developed immunities to all sorts of minor airborne maladies. But young children are in a different situation; their immune systems are still developing. For them, wearing masks for the better part of a year might mean missing opportunities to develop immunity to some pesky diseases.

Southern Legislator Setting Stage for Roe’s Demise, by Charlie Butts

By Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow – Despite there being no right to abortion in the Constitution, the high court’s 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade forced abortion on all 50 states – resulting over the years in the killing of more than 65 million babies in the womb. Now, Ark. State Senator Jason Rapert has introduced SB149 to put the court to the test… (Rapert) points out that the Supreme Court “realized it made a bad decision [regarding] slavery in the 1800s, came back and overturned their own precedent on that issue and abolished slavery.” In the same way, he tells One News Now, “it’s time for America to abolish abortion as well.”

100 Years of Legal Abortion: Happy ‘Birthday,’ Subhumanism, by Jason Jones & John Zmirak

By Jason Jones & John Zmirak, The Stream – November 18 marks a powerful anniversary. In 1920, the newly-hatched dragon that was the Soviet Union legalized abortion. That made it the first government in the West to embrace the destruction of children since the conversion of Constantine. No one even dared to raise the idea of doing that until the 18th century, when the Marquis de Sade proposed it — in the midst of one of his many pornographic, literally Satanist books.

Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: Defending Life After 100 Years of Legal Abortion

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – As Pope St. John Paul II, a great opponent of the communist ideology, wrote in Centessimus Annus: “[T]he fundamental error of socialism is anthropological in nature. Socialism considers the individual person simply as an element, a molecule within the social organism, so that the good of the individual is completely subordinated to the functioning of the socio-economic mechanism.”… Such a view of the human person comes with innumerable pernicious consequences, of which the horrors of the Gulag are but one example.

Counting Votes, Ignoring Science, by Hadley Arkes

By Hadley Arkes, The Catholic Thing – But of course we already know that the same people who regard nascent life as disposable have been readying a plan for us in the latter stages of life, to give us the benefits of “choice” and “euthanasia.” For patients no longer steady in their judgments, the decisions in some cases will flow to doctors, armed with the powers of life and death… And they are likely to be doctors more and more in accord with their times, more and more delivered from any sense of the moral grounds and limits of their vocations.

Joe Biden Would be a Total Disaster for Unborn Children, by Austin Ruse

By Austin Ruse, LifeNews – A Biden-Harris administration would be an unmitigated disaster for the unborn child, religious freedom, and the family. They would be far worse than the Clintons, who were awful, and the Obamas, who were worse… Here’s is what a President Biden would do right away… He would remove the U.S. from the Geneva Consensus Declaration that the U.S. led and that says, correctly, that abortion is not a human right, and laws regulating it are for sovereign states to determine.

Abortion is Essential Health Care — And Other Falsehoods, by Hendrik van der Breggen

By Hendrik van der Breggen, The Stream – When it comes to abortion, it’s time for adults to stop sleeping and start thinking… Essential Health Care?.. According to U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, “Abortion is an essential health care service.”… No, it’s not… Dr. Kendra Kolb, a neonatologist, stated this in 2019: There is no medical reason why the life of the child must be directly and intentionally ended with an abortion procedure.

Ivanka Trump: Parenthood Changed My Mind on Abortion, Now I’m “Unapologetically Pro-Life”, by Steven Ertelt

The “Preeminent Issue” is the Defense of Life, According to Vatican II, by John Grondelski

By John Grondelski, National Catholic Register – As the 2020 elections go down to the wire, the argument about how Catholics should respond is only getting more vigorous… That debate was already previewed at last fall’s meeting of the U.S. bishops, when the episcopate issued a letter declaring that “the threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority.” That language was challenged by several bishops, including Chicago’s Cardinal Blaise Cupich and San Diego’s Bishop Robert McElroy, who suggested the formulation inclined toward a one-issue politics and was not in keeping with “the magisterium of Pope Francis.”

Voting for Abortion is a Crime Against Humanity, by Patrick Chisholm

By Patrick Chisholm, Crisis Magazine – Abortion is an intrinsic moral evil. It involves carrying out or arranging to carry out the deliberate killing of an innocent human being. An intrinsic evil is an action that is always gravely sinful regardless of the circumstances. There are no exceptions, no grey areas… The U.S. federal government is guilty of and complicit in intrinsic evil because it permits abortion and funds it with tax dollars. With some 62 million people killed by abortion since it was legalized, not only is the U.S. government complicit in an intrinsic evil, it is complicit in genocide …

When Joe Biden Saved ‘Roe v. Wade’, by Paul Kengor

Biden wept tears of joy in the arms of Rudman, shouting triumphantly of Souter: “You were right about him! You were right!”… Rudman was indeed right. He had pushed Souter’s nomination by Republican President George H.W. Bush. He ensured liberal colleagues that Souter was okay. Rudman, a pro-choice Republican, had been Souter’s boss at the New Hampshire Office of the Attorney General. Yes, he and Biden were from opposing parties. But they were united by abortion.

Life Trumps All . . . by Joseph Matt

How did we get to this place in time — where today we have a so-called devout Catholic running for president who openly promotes abortions? Much of the blame can be shouldered by the Catholic Church and its pandering “shepherd-less” bishops and priests who have shamefully and disgracefully given false cover to those “Catholic” politicians and “Catholic” voters who believe they can hide behind the deceptive and fraudulent “seamless garment” argument ….

Fr. Shenan Boquet: A Christian Vision of Society and Civilization of Love

Fr. Shenan Boquet, Human Life International – It is a true but underappreciated fact that animals in the wild almost never die of old age. Long before old age finishes them off, weakened animals succumb to disease, predators, or starvation. I say this fact is underappreciated, because it points to one of the most remarkable things about human beings: i.e. that we look out for one another, including – or rather, especially – the weakest among us

By Respect Life Radio, Deacon Geoff Bennett – Earlier in the interview on Respect Life Radio, she said, “I suddenly saw myself as a mass murderer. I understand how the Nazis could do what they did. Because I was doing it. It all came down to whether or not you feel a group is human or not. They didn’t feel the Jews and the Russians and the others were human. And I didn’t feel fetuses were human. So I didn’t have any remorse — at the time. I didn’t feel guilty — at the time. It wasn’t until then when I realized what I had been doing.

By Matthew J. Franck, Wall Street Journal – From Antonin Scalia to Amy Coney Barrett, opposition to Catholic nominees has been mainly about the politics of abortion, not their religious faith… If the Catholicism of a nominee is considered a plus by Republicans hoping for the demise of Roe, it is understandable that it should send shudders of apprehension through the ranks of Democrats, for whom abortion rights are now a nonnegotiable plank of their party’s platform.

By Micaiah Bilger, LifeNews – Evidence of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett’s strong pro-life convictions is growing… The Daily Beast reports Barrett, a judge on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, signed an open letter in 2006 that described abortion as “barbaric” and called for an end to Roe v. Wade… Barrett is President Donald Trump’s choice to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died in September.

Biden: If Amy Coney Barrett is Confirmed “Roe” Is on the Chopping Block, by Calvin Freiburger

By Calvin Freiburger, LifeSiteNews – Biden also invoked fears that Barrett could contribute to the Supreme Court overturning Obamacare and Roe v. Wade. While much of the segment was mired in arguments regarding tangential issues, particularly Obamacare, Trump responded by merely insisting that Biden’s prediction of the Court taking up Roe was premature, and that Biden did not know Barrett’s position on Roe …

Archbishop’s Abortionless Voter Guide, by Bradley Eli

By Bradley Eli, M.Div., Ma.Th., Church Militant – But Lori fails to contrast the intrinsic evils of abortion, contraception and euthanasia with such popular social justice causes as poverty or illegal immigration. He fails to even use the word abortion at all. He fails to morally weigh for voters against other social issues the millions of innocent human beings slain each year by abortion — more than 61 million in the United States since Roe v. Wade legalized the practice.

(2016) Fr. Michael Orsi: ‘You Might Not Have a Church to Go to If You Don’t Vote the Right Way in November’, by Claire Chretien

 By Claire Chretien, LifeSiteNews (2016) – Fr. Corsi, “I’m not going to vote for a candidate who decides that we can redefine the meaning of marriage. Our opponents believe once they destroy the family, once they destroy the churches, they can re-create society in their own image and their own likeness. That, my friends, is not just political. That is diabolical. Get it straight, for crying out loud! The devil is in this!”… “We are in a battle for the soul of America.”… “Somehow, [Christians] have come to buy the story that you cannot be political in church,” said Orsi. “Let me tell you right now, oh yes, you can, and oh, yes, you better be. Because you might not have a church to go to if you don’t vote the right way in November.”

By Micaiah Bilger, LifeNews – Colorado Politics reports Archbishop Samuel J. Aquila of Denver reminded Catholics that protecting lives should be a priority Friday in a column about the upcoming election… “It is not possible to be a Catholic in good standing and support abortion or assisted suicide, to promote unnatural sexuality, or to seek to push people of faith out of the public square,” Aquila wrote at the Denver Catholic. “Those who do so – Catholic or not – are helping hollow out our culture and contributing to its demise.”

Mother ‘Incredibly Relieved’ After Doctor Saves Baby Using Abortion Pill Reversal, by Nancy Flanders 

By Nancy Flanders, Live Action – The abortion pill regimen includes Mifeprex (mifepristone), which blocks the natural hormone progesterone that sustains the baby and the uterine lining during pregnancy, and misoprostol, which causes contractions and heavy bleeding and expels the dead baby from the uterus. After Mifeprex has been taken, there is still time to save the baby’s life by visiting a medical provider in the Abortion Pill Rescue network. By administering progesterone, more than 1,000 babies have been saved from the abortion pill.

Roe v. Wade Revisited, by Joseph Enders

By Joseph Enders, Church Militant – Roe v. Wade stained the moral character of the nation by giving us national abortion on demand. Often neglected in the analysis of abortion jurisprudence is the long road that got us to Roe. Indeed, a series of bad court decisions fundamentally changed the way we interpret the Constitution, birthing this strange new era of judicial activism — an era that has yielded judicial “super-legislation” for which no one in the United States voted.

US Bishops Tell Catholic Voters Abortion is ‘Preeminent Issue’ in 2020 Election, by Lianne Laurence

By Lianne Laurence, LifeSiteNews – With the U.S. presidential election just 39 days away, America’s Catholic bishops are reiterating the Church’s longstanding teaching that abortion is the “preeminent” social justice issue when it comes to voting… “The threat of abortion remains our preeminent priority because it directly attacks life itself, because it takes place within the sanctuary of the family, and because of the number of lives destroyed,” stated Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas in a statement released this week titled “Priorities at the Polls.”

Trump’s Place In Pro-Life History, by Jonathon Van Maren

By Jonathon Van Maren, The American Conservative – The 2016 election changed everything. As the primaries heated up, the SBA List took the same position held by nearly every pro-life leader in the country: Anybody but Trump. Dannenfelser writes that the race was packed with pro-lifers: Jeb Bush was “a true believer”; Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz had long committed to pro-life policies, and Carly Fiorina was pushing for an SBA List endorsement. Dannenfelser watched with mounting dismay as Trump, a Manhattan outsider with a long pro-abortion record, demolished the opposition. Trump was the nominee, and SBA List would have to play ball—especially when Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died, raising the stakes.

Democrats’ Anti-Catholic Bigotry Is All about Abortion, by Alexandra Desanctis

By Alexandra Desanctis, National Review – The centrality of abortion in this entire schema is starkly obvious. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden also calls himself a Catholic, as do plenty of Democratic politicians. But like Biden, most of those Democrats have managed to rationalize away the Church’s dogmatic prohibition on the taking of innocent human life, and thus Catholicism’s non-negotiable opposition to abortion… When was the last time you saw anyone, much less anyone on the left or in the media, insinuate that Biden will be incapable of doing his job as president because of his Catholic faith?

New Report Suggests NARAL Expects Media to Mislead Public in Favor of Abortion, by Sarah Terzo

By Sarah Terzo, Live Action – Previously, Live Action News noted how NARAL’s recent report on abortion in the media indicated a supposed need for the media to use even more pro-abortion language than it already does, with the abortion organization emphasizing that the media should discuss abortion more as “health care” as opposed to as a political issue. But the report also seems to indicate that NARAL would like the media to lie about scientific facts for them.

Biden Campaign Downplays Abortion, Killing 62 Million Babies Is Just Another “Issue”, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Joe Biden’s campaign is desperately trying to reel in Christian voters because it knows the majority of Americans are pro-life and most will not support a presidential candidate who supports abortions up to birth… To do that, Biden’s campaign is drumming up his Catholic faith. But it’s taking another approach to try to dilute President Trump’s Christian support — by saying abortion is just another “political issue” akin to tax policy or funding a government program.

A Vote for Joe Biden is Really a Vote for Radical Abortion Activist Kamala Harris, by Micaiah Bilger

By Micaiah Bilger, LifeNews – It looks like Kamala Harris already is making plans to take over the highest office in the land if Joe Biden wins the presidential election in November… On Monday, Harris, Biden’s vice presidential running mate, made what PJ Media described as the “mother of all Freudian slips” when she used her own name to describe future White House leadership rather than that of her running mate… “A Harris administration,” she began before correcting herself, “together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States … a Biden-Harris administration.”

Will Children Die So That We May Live? by Casey Chalk

By Casey Chalk, Crisis Magazine – The controversy stems from the fact that the cell line for the research was originally derived from cells grown in tissue culture taken from an electively aborted female fetus in the 1970s. The ecumenical letter thus demanded the Australian government refrain from making the Oxford vaccine mandatory or punishing those who decline it on religious grounds, and ensure a different, “ethically uncontroversial” vaccine also be made available.

Possible Trump Supreme Court Nominee Tom Cotton: “It’s Time For Roe V. Wade To Go”, by Mary Margaret Olohan

By Mary Margaret Olohan, LifeNews – Rep. Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton said that it is “time for Roe V. Wade to go” moments after President Donald Trump floated Cotton’s name as a possible Supreme Court Justice pick… When Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh replaced former Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy after a highly contentious confirmation process, progressive groups, media and activists alike said Kavanaugh was the fifth vote needed to overturn Roe v. Wade. However, the Supreme Court struck down a law in June that would have significantly restricted abortion access.

NARAL Foresees an End to Abortion if Trump Is Reelected, by Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D.

Fr. James Altaman-A True Shepherd Warns His Sheep (Grace Force Podcast Episode 56)

Why Catholics Can’t Be Pro-Choice, by Trent Horn (From the Archives)

By Trent Horn, Catholic Answers – Unfortunately, there are many people who call themselves Catholic and yet believe, for one reason or another, they can be “pro-choice,” or support legal abortion, without compromising their Catholic Faith. When I say someone is “pro-choice,” I don’t mean only that he has voted for a political candidate who happens to support keeping abortion legal. I mean that person is committed to the idea that legal abortion is necessary and that he votes for laws and politicians with the intention of keeping abortion legal.

How Will Abortion Factor in the Presidential Election? by Lauretta Brown

By Lauretta Brown, EWTN News – At a Republican National Convention with perhaps the most vocal pro-life message ever, speakers discussed the medical realities of abortion and spoke out against late-term abortion… And according to political analysts, the Republicans’ decision to highlight the life issue so prominently — in contrast to the absence of any reference to abortion during the DNC — reflects a GOP belief that emphasizing the issue will both mobilize its own political base of religious voters and draw in other voters who disagree with the Democratic Party’s unqualified support for abortion rights.

By Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow – A coalition of pro-life groups is making sure that an abortion-related death in Alabama is fully investigated… On May 7th of this year, a woman who was obviously weak following an abortion at West Alabama Women’s Center in Tuscaloosa was released to go home.

Lambeth, 90 Years Later, by Michael Pakaluk

By Michael Pakaluk, The Catholic Thing – The Lambeth Conference of 1930 subverted itself, everyone agrees, but how? That’s the question… Some background: the Church of England, spread throughout the world by the British Empire, felt the need, beginning in the 1850s, to hold worldwide conferences of bishops for the sake of unity. These meetings were convened about every ten years at the London residence of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Lambeth Palace… The Lambeth Conference of 1930 was infamous, even in its day, for its Resolution 15 on artificial contraception…

The Vatican Goes to Bat for Biden, by George Neumayr

By George Neumayr, American Spectator – …it is no surprise that such Vatican officials as Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia are helping Biden by downplaying his abortion stance. Last week Paglia served up some mush about the dangers of abortion politics, according to Crux: “As US presidential elections heat up and ‘life issues’ are expected to figure prominently in the campaign, the Vatican’s top official in the area has cautioned against turning the pro-life cause into an ideological weapon, saying making the protection of life a political football risks doing ‘great harm.’”

By Olivia Summers, American Center for Law and Justice – It is well documented – and we’ve been telling you for years – that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a eugenicist who believed that society could, and should, create a superior race of people… Yet, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly overlooked its founder’s racist ideals and goals and has referred to her as “a woman of heroic accomplishments” who was, “like all heroes[,] . . . complex and imperfect.”

By Adolfo J. Castañeda, Human Life International – According to Brian Clowes, PhD, Director of Research and Training for Human Life International, “More than any other abortion, the D&X killing method exposes the cruel and inhumane nature of both abortion in general and abortionists in particular.”4 Then he goes on to describe this horrible procedure by quoting from the abortionist who originated it: “Abortionist Martin Haskell originated the D&X procedure because ‘…most surgeons find dismemberment [i.e., D&E] at twenty weeks and beyond to be difficult due to the toughness of fetal tissues at this stage of development.’”

Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: Will Biden’s “Devout” Faith Fool Pro-life Voters?

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – It’s hard not to laugh at Prof. George’s article. Because it’s precisely the sort of hot air that Catholics hear all the time from supposedly “Catholic” politicians like Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. When pro-lifers point out that such stridently pro-abortion politicians are scarcely Catholic, they (and their supporters) will typically respond with a bunch of gobbledygook about how they went to a Jesuit school, or a school run by nuns, or how they’re actually very pro-life because they believe that everybody should be nice to other people.

Here is a once-prominent public intellectual, who actually toyed with running for president of the U.S., reduced to peddling sophistries to his ever-shrinking audience. His point?… It doesn’t matter if you refuse to vote against Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. …

Melissa: “What do you mean? Because he’s paralyzed with a brain injury he doesn’t have quality of life?”

Chief Justice Roberts Sends Troubling Signals in Louisiana Abortion Case, by Lauretta Brown

Russo Monday, striking down a Louisiana law that required doctors at abortion facilities to have admitting privileges at a local hospital within a 30-minute radius… The surprising decision disappointed pro-life advocates who were hopeful that he would uphold the Louisiana regulation, especially given his dissent from the 2016 Whole Woman’s Health v.

Abortion: I Wrote Louisiana’s Pro-Life Law. The Supreme Court Ruled Against Women’s Health. by Katrina Jackson

By Katrina Jackson, Opinion contributor, USA Today – My desire to author the legislation came from listening to the stories of women hurt by abortion as I sat on the Louisiana Health and Welfare Committee and placing myself in their shoes. As I listened, I learned that the women of Louisiana were suffering because of the negligence of medical professionals and deplorable conditions at our state’s abortion facilities… It was alarming to me, for example, that one of our state’s primary abortion clinics, Delta Clinic of Baton Rouge, had a decades-long history of unsanitary conditions and substandard medical care that most recently led to a woman requiring a full hysterectomy following an incomplete abortion.

Louisiana, Before the Judgment Seat, by Sean Fitzpatrick

By Sean Fitzpatrick, Crisis Magazine – In the Byzantine Divine Liturgy, there is a petition for “a good defense before the awesome judgment seat of God.” I often find that abortion flashes through my mind at that prayer. Given the outrageous atrocity that abortion is in the free world, the free people should expect to answer for it when the Judge takes His seat. Do we have a good defense? What did we do? What could we have done?

Justice Roberts Splits The Baby, by Thomas FitzGerald

By Thomas FitzGerald, American Conservative – The U.S. Supreme Court’s Chief Justice, John Roberts, has taken upon himself the Solomonic role of American philosopher king left vacant at Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement. Seemingly committed above all to the institutional legitimacy of the Court, Roberts has in the last few weeks cast a series of votes in the Bostock, Espinoza, and June Medical Services cases that appear to show him to be trying to placate both sides of America’s culture wars by offering something to each.

Five Justices vs. The People, by Tony Perkins

By Tony Perkins, Family Research Council – “Unnecessary.” That’s the word the majority of justices used to describe a law that would have kept 10,000 women a year safe. Women, who, when they walk through the doors of Louisiana’s abortion centers every year, are under the assumption they’ll be protected. That their doctors care. Jamie Lee would give anything to warn them — to tell them to turn back and go home — but she’ll never have the chance. She bled to death in the back of her sister’s car because her abortionist didn’t want to call an ambulance over the seven-inch gash he put in her uterus… These are the third-world conditions the Left fought for — and won…

By Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., Breitbart – “Abortion violently ends the life of a child, and often severely harms women,” writes Kansas City Archbishop Joseph F.

Roberts Votes Pro-Death, by Bradley Eli

By Bradley Eli, M.Div., Ma.Th., Church Militant – Chief Justice John Roberts — a Catholic — cast the deciding vote in the High Court’s first major abortion ruling of the Trump era… Roberts sided with four liberal justices Monday in the case of June Medical Services v. Russo, allowing the U.S. Supreme Court to nullify Louisiana’s abortionist admitting-privilege law. Concurring with the liberal majority, Roberts wrote that the status quo must be preserved… “The legal doctrine of stare decisis requires us, absent special circumstances, to treat like cases alike,” Roberts penned. “The Louisiana law imposes a burden on access to abortion just as severe as that imposed by the Texas law, for the same reasons.

Wade.”

AP: Supreme Court Strikes Down Louisiana Abortion Clinic Law

AP – The Supreme Court on Monday struck down a Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, reasserting a commitment to abortion rights over fierce opposition from dissenting conservative justices in the first big abortion case of the Trump era… Chief Justice John Roberts joined with his four more liberal colleagues in ruling that the law requiring doctors who perform abortions have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals violates the abortion right the court first announced in the landmark Roe v. Wade decision in 1973… In dissent, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, “Today a majority of the Court perpetuates its ill-founded abortion jurisprudence by enjoining a perfectly legitimate state law and doing so without jurisdiction.”

Stop Playing God with Human Genes, by John Stonestreet, Roberto Rivera

By John Stonestreet and Roberto Rivera, CNSNews – For years, I’ve worried and warned about the dangers posed by gene editing technologies, such as CRISPR. In the words of one of its inventors, CRISPR makes the human genome “as malleable as a piece of literary prose at the mercy of an editor’s red pen.”… At least, that’s the promise that has yet to materialize… In 2018, a Chinese scientist announced he’d used CRISPR to genetically modify human embryos. At the time, more “respectable” scientists denounced his actions as “unethical,” given how new the technology was and how little ethical oversight there was for using it.

Given the similarities in the two cases, court-watchers are anxious to see if Roberts will side with the liberal wing of the court, like he did in two major rulings last week, or if he will stick to his earlier reasoning.

Thousands of people participated in these protests, congregating in tight spaces, often with absolutely no effort at preventing the spread of Covid-19.

Clarence Thomas on Abortion: Liberals Want Limits on Buying Guns But Not on Killing Babies

By Micaiah Bilger, LifeNews – On Monday, Thomas disagreed with the high court about taking a Second Amendment case out of New Jersey, Rogers v. Grewal. According to Breitbart, the state requires people to show a “justifiable need” to own a handgun before the state will issue them a permit… A majority of the Supreme Court justices refused to hear the case, but Thomas disagreed, writing: “One would think that such an onerous burden on a fundamental right would warrant this Court’s review. This Court would almost certainly review the constitutionality of a law requiring citizens to establish a justifiable need before exercising their free speech rights.”

We must continue to demand accountability, justice, and an end to the inequity that continues to define every moment of life for Black America from the racist institutions that uphold white supremacy.”… this statement was made by none other than Planned Parenthood… It’s tempting to dig into the rich irony of the phrase “racist institutions that uphold white supremacy” when that accusation is made by an organization whose founder’s goal was the elimination of African Americans.

Catholic Exchange: Warnings From Archbishop Viganò: Our Current Crisis & the Eternal Struggle

By Catholic Exchange – In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. …

Violence In the Womb Is ‘Spilling Out’ Into the Streets, by Charlie Butts

By Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow – “We had planned this before the riots taking place in Washington,” begins Mark Harrington, head of the pro-life organization. “We’re trying to teach people that what’s happening in the streets is due directly to what has been happening in the womb for now almost 50 years and that the current violence and rioting in our major cities is a result of our unwillingness to love our preborn neighbors as ourselves, and that’s why we see the violence in the womb now spilling out into violence in the streets.”

Bill Gates Funds Pharmaceutical Companies Using Aborted Baby Parts to Make Coronavirus Vaccines

By Mat Staver, LifeNews – Earlier this week, I told you about the hazards and warnings concerning the Gates Foundation-backed Moderna dangerously rushing to produce a COVID-19 vaccine. But there is far more behind the “vaccine raace” and it all circles back to computer-entrepreneur-turned-Big Pharma-lobbyist Bill Gates… Perhaps it is no surprise that all the top 5 pharmaceutical companies working on a COVID vaccine are using aborted baby cell lines in their research and all of them are funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Expanding Euthanasia During the Pandemic, by Brian Bird

By Brian Bird, Public Discourse – “COVID-19 has reminded us, in dramatic fashion, that the true purpose of healthcare is to preserve life and ease suffering.

Federal Court Upholds Missouri Law Confirming Human Life Begins at Conception, by Micaiah Bilger

Doe claimed the law violated her religious freedom because she does not believe that “the life of each human being begins at conception.”

Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: Trump Admin Fights UN, WHO Efforts to Use COVID-19 to Spread Abortion

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – In April of this year, President Trump temporarily halted funding from the World Health Organization over concerns that it had grossly mishandled the COVID-19 crisis.

Advice for Pro-Lifers at Such a Time, by Charlie Butts

By Charlie Butts, OneNewsNow – The Pro-Life Action League says there is a solution for the pro-life counselors who are reluctant to man the sidewalks outside abortion clinics out of concern of being arrested… The concern is not unfounded, as, for example, eight pro-life prayer warriors were arrested outside an abortion clinic in early April in Charlotte, North Carolina, even though they were following the law. But Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League does not think that should deter pro-lifers from doing what they can to save babies from abortion.

Abortion and Social Justice: The Case of ‘Liberal Eugenics’, by John Grondelski

By John Grondelski, EWTN News – Abortion and Social Justice was the title of a book edited almost 50 years ago… the editors wanted to situate discussion of abortion not as part of sexual ethics or even bioethics but as a social justice question.

Planned Parenthood Has $2.2 Billion in Assets From Killing Babies, It Doesn’t Need Our Tax Dollars, by Tony Perkins

By Tony Perkins, LifeNews – Planned Parenthood is no “small” business. In 2018, America’s hulk of an abortion provider reported net assets of $2.2 billion — so the idea that they would be competing for stimulus loans is absurd. And yet, to the shock of people up and down East Capitol Street, that’s exactly what dozens of its affiliates did. Even Republicans, who’ve come to expect this kind of larceny from Planned Parenthood, have a hard time believing it… the Democrats’ favorite abortion tycoon managed to rip off $80 million from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). And the Trump administration wants it back. Now.

By Jason Jones, John Zmirak, The Stream – During the crisis caused by the virus China unleashed on the world, we’ve seen some pro-lifers stumble. No doubt they’re eager to keep their vital cause relevant to current events. So they claim that there is a “pro-life” position on the lockdown… They embrace maximum restrictions on business, to “save every life” possible. That’s exactly how pro-infanticide New York Governor Mario Cuomo talks, too… Such people claim that those of us who fear government tyranny, and the hunger, chaos, and suicides linked to an economic depression are being “callous” or even “anti-life.”

It’s Unethical to Use Fetal Tissue in COVID-19 Research, by Christopher O. Tollefsen

By Christopher O. Tollefsen, Public Discourse – Controversy over fetal tissue research, particularly when that research comes from elective abortions, has long been framed as an issue that pits religion against science. This framing presupposes a view of religion as opposed to reason, and it assumes that objections to abortion are fundamentally based in religion. In truth, the humanity of the unborn child is clearly established by science. Reason tells us that we must treat like cases alike, affording moral protection against killing at will to all human beings.

A Trump Judge Tips the Balance, but Things Stay the Same, by Hadley Arkes

By Hadley Arkes, The Catholic Thing – In times of contagion and war, unelected judges have been rightly timid about challenging the decisions made by figures in elective office, who bear a more direct responsibility to the people whose lives are in danger.  And so I began my last column as I noted that the issue of abortion could have a dramatic effect in disrupting that convention long settled in our law, as it has upended other parts of our law.
