While there are a number of medical risks associated with abortion and significant evidence that abortion increases the likelihood of contracting breast cancer, there is another threat that is tied to the abortion clinics themselves.
No matter what anyone believes about abortion in theory, no matter how adamantly a woman argues for abortion rights in public, most women go to great lengths to ensure that their own abortion remains a secret. Why is this so? Because abortion, unlike any other comm
Figures from Statistics Canada, a federal government agency, show 491 babies were born alive following botched abortions during the period from 2000-2009 and left to die afterwards. The numbers have pro-life advocates up in arms.
Andre Schutten, legal counsel for ARPA Canada, noticed the numbers and blogged about them recently.
The blog Run with Life has reported that, from 2000 to 2009, 491 babies have been born alive following a failed abortion procedure, and subsequently left to die. And th

The Future of American Catholicism
Posted By Russell Shaw On October 5, 2012 @ 12:00 am In Faith,Featured-Large | 9 Comments
Two new books by thoughtful Catholic authors take deeply different views of the future of American Catholicism. Both deserve serious pondering.
One of them is called Why Catholicism Matters . The subtitle tells it all: “How Catholic Virtues Can Reshape Society in the 21st Century” (Image Books). It’s the
PILGRIMAGE TO REPUTED APPARITION SITE IN SPIRIT OF DEEP DEVOTION AND PRAYER
25]If and when the Vatican rules on the apparition site of Medjugorje, we will strictly abide by that ruling. For now, the Holy See's press office has (twice) stated that priests and pilgrims are free to go there, as long as it is an unofficial pilgrimage (as opposed to a parish trip). Priests are encouraged to go and assist the faithful.
25]We are returning there because we have never seen a pla
Why I Secretly Root For the Atheists in Debates…
Posted By Robert Hutchinson In 2008, after my book The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible  came out, I was asked to fly to Ireland to participate in a debate on the existence of God at University College Cork. I had been doing radio interviews for my book and was very comfortable discussing some of the sillier arguments atheists use to attack Christianity or the Bible  – for example, that the Bible is full of scientific “errors” a

How Do You Reconcile the Message of NDEs With Terrorist Events?
In a time where it may seem that the NDE messages of love and compassion appear irreconcilable with recent terrorist attacks on the United States, there is a framework that may be useful for healing. There are many emotions and many questions. One of the hardest things to reconcile is how to lovingly and compassionately engage in war against terrorists and countries that harbor and train terrorists. Another problem was, how do y
amples of Homecoming in the NDE
Betty Bethard's NDE homecoming experience:
When you die you are greeted by loved ones first so that you may understand what has happened. There is a big celebration, like a birthday party, heralding your arrival. Family and friends who have gone on before you are there to celebrate your arrival. There is always good at the time of your cross-over. Even people who have lived lives of selfishness will know and understand the rejoicing. Whatever you have sown y
Ian McCormick's NDE
One night while diving for lobster on the small Island of Mauritius I was stung on my forearm by 5 Box-Jellyfish, which the local Creole fishermen called "invisables" A sting from a Box-Jellyfish often proves to be fatal - as exemplified in Australia where 70 people are known to have died from their stings. Many books quote this particular type of Jellyfish to be among the most venomous creatures in the world.

What Is Jainism?
Numbers: One of the oldest religious traditions of India, Jainism has existed side by side with Hinduism throughout its long history. With fewer than 5 million adherents and comprising less than 1% the Indian population, Jainism has demonstrated a remarkable tenacity and endurance and continues to exert an influence far beyond its small numbers.
Founder: Jainism (the name derives from a Sanskrit word meaning "follower of the Jina, or conqueror") was established in our era by M

Dr. Raymond Moody's Groundbreaking Research
The scientific method requires all phenomena to be reproducible, provide veridical details (i.e., details which cannot be explained away, which are found to be true), and undergo rigorous tests to rule out all the known alternative explanations, for a theory to be proven as scientific fact. Using the scientific method, near-death experiences have been proven to be a real sc

Saved From Hell Rev. Howard Storm's near-death experience
Before his near-death experience, Rev. Howard Storm, a Professor of Art at Northern Kentucky University, was not a very pleasant man.

Anything that wasn't seen, touched, or felt, he had no faith in. He knew with certainty
