Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

END OF THE YEAR GIVING
Our work depends solely on your generous donations. Without your support, we will be unable to continue producing the educational materials that are so crucial for the fight against abortion and Planned Parenthood.
Mankind is a great, an immense family. This is proved by what we feel in our hearts at Christmas. ~Pope John XXIII
Catholic Hospitals and the Intent to Kill
In the wake of the decree issued by the Most Reverend Thomas Olmsted, bishop of Phoenix, Arizona, much has been said about the hospital and its actions. Some theologians have even defended the abortion. Pitting mainstream theologians against a Catholic bishop and his authority is a dangerous game. While some have massaged their language to defend an action which Olmsted found, after careful scrutiny, to be in error, some still ask, "Whom should we believe?"

It's time to end the funding of Planned Parenthood and the slaughter of the Holy Innocents.

Adipose-derived stem cells maintain their "stemness" and could be useful for cell-based therapies. A team of researchers from several institutions in Italy isolated and characterized adult fat cell-derived stem cells from patients undergoing lipoaspiration (surgical removal of fat deposits) in order to investigate the ability of the fat cells to maintain their stem cell characteristics in in vitro cultures to the point where once transplanted they could aid in tissue regeneration.
