[Video] When Does Human Life Begin?

August 14, 2015 • By

Check out this excellent video produced by Catholic Answers and featuring Trent Horn. Trent demonstrates that we can (and do) know when human life begins without the use of religious beliefs. Science proved when life begins long ago, and this video illustrates that fact with quotes from many scientific and pro-choice leaders all confirming that human life begins at conception.

A great animation, and well worth the 6 minutes to watch.

For more information on how to discuss the issue of abortion, check out our recent post ‘How to Defend Life with Charity and Respect’, which also features Trent Horn. Go Trent!

How to Defend Life with Charity and Respect

August 12, 2015 • By

Thanks to the release of the undercover videos showing the gruesome behind-the-scenes activity of Planned Parenthood the issue of abortion has once-again become center stage. Are you ready to engage in this discussion? As Catholics we are called to defend the innocent and witness to the value of all human life, but this task has proven incredibly hard and complicated. There have been many times in my life where I have chosen not to speak up in order to avoid arguments, or to not make people feel uncomfortable. (Regrettably, I was the one that did not want to feel uncomfortable.)

But what are we to do? Those people who disagree with the Pro-Life position are often people very close to us; family and friends. How do we engage this hot topic in a civil way that doesn’t damage these relationships?

A new book, Persuasive Pro-Life: How to Talk About Our Culture’s Toughest Issue, seeks to teach readers how to talk about the issue in a way that is open, humble and fair. The author, Trent Horn, is an experienced pro-life organizer and debater. He has cataloged all of his experience into this easy-to-read book in order to teach you not just what to say, but how to say it.

Senator Lankford (R-OK) Speaks out about Planned Parenthood to the Senate

July 27, 2015 • By

In this video, Senator Lankford, a Republican Senator from Oklahoma, stands up for the unborn on the Senate floor on July 16, 2015. Senator Lankford has introduced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood from government funding while investigations take place. Planned Parenthood receives over 500 million dollars in tax payer money.

Please let this video and the recent outcry of countless others in the media inspire you to speak out against the horrific practices of the abortion industry. Men have an important voice in this discussion. Don’t be fooled. This is not a woman’s issue. It is a human issue. Our society has become a place where children are not welcomed, and they are discarded like trash. The world needs to be reminded of the true beauty and joy that occurs when husbands and wives commit themselves daily to love creates and welcomes life.
