Over the objections of plenty of taxpayers, PBS – a publicly funded channel – aired “After Tiller” on Labor Day. “After Tiller” is a documentary glorifying the work of four late-term abortionists in the U.S.

People who’ve seen “After Tiller” need to know another side to the story of late term abortion. Here, for starters, are five things you need to know. Read more…

The Ice Bucket Challenge and bio-ethics – A Catholic scientist answers your questions

Anyone who spends time on Facebook is now well aware of the Ice Bucket Challenge that has been sweeping the internet as a campaign for raising awareness and donations to research for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), or Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Yes. Had I been crying? Yes. Had I asked him to stop? I had. But in my mind, because he had not beaten me up and wasn’t holding me down, it wasn’t really rape – it was just a teenage guy “taking advantage of the situation.” For years I used that term. For years I made excuses for his behavior. Read more…
