Dr. Robert George: Will you stand for the Gospel of Life if it means persecution? 

LifeSiteNews.com reports on Dr. Robert George's powerful words at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C., challenging Christians to stand fast on unpopular moral issues, even if it means persecution.

A Bitter Pill: The History of Oral Contraception


On June 7, pro-lifers around the state will gather for Griswold v. Connecticut vigils to commemorate the landmark Supreme Court case that paved the way for Roe v. Wade.

While these vigils focus in part on the dangers of judicial activism, they also serve to raise awareness about the dangers of hormonal contraception, which is both an abortifacient and dangerous to a woman's body. 

American Life League provides an excellent summary of the dangers of the pill on their "The Pill Kills" website. Click here to learn more about the harmful side effects of hormonal contraception.

Couple Leaves Everything to Begin Pro-Life Movement in Romania

The abortion rate in Romania is sky-high, with one of the highest abortion rates in the world. And tragically, the pro-life movement in that country is almost non-existent. That is, until now. 

Despite a comfortable life in Canada, Dan and Julia Calinescu feel called to make a difference in their native country of Romania, and they see no better way than igniting a culture of life in the former communist country.
