A pro-lifer friend shared his concern with me this morning, asking if we should oppose bacon along with contraceptives, since bacon has been declared a Class 1 Carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. First of all, the processed meat and cancer connection is nothing new. I’ve heard that since I was a …
Especially after Pope Francis’ words about birth rate reduction, I’m really excited about this new documentary that’s coming out! It’s called Sweetening the Pill, produced by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein. Their Kickstarter page is here. Nine days to go!! As a Catholic, I have several reasons to get excited about it: 1. It’s not …

From Laudato Si’: 50. Instead of resolving the problems of the poor and thinking of how the world can be different, some can only propose a reduction in the birth rate. At times, developing countries face forms of international pressure which make economic assistance contingent on certain policies of “reproductive health”. Yet “while it is …
Oh yes, it’s Lent. It seems the anti-life and anti-family movements are out in full force again. Did funding come in recently? In just the past week, several articles have been published targeting the Catholic church yet again for its [archaic, primitive, bigoted, misogynistic -- take your pick] stance on contraception. The Gates- and Ford-funded …
It’s been a little over 24 hours since I woke up to Facebook hopping (pun unintended) because of a remark the Pope made on the plane to Rome from Manila, where he spent four days with the Filipino people, celebrating, teaching, loving. Many are upset because once again, the Pope said something that just *hit* …
For a background on all of this, here again is the link to the video of Fr. Sammie Maletta’s homily + transcript. Last week, when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, we saw Sandra Fluke’s opening statement before the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee. If you Google “Sandra Fluke” and click only on …
Prayers for and cheers to this courageous priest-lawyer for speaking the truth! May more of our priests be like him. Spread the word. I’m posting the transcript of his homily here for my parents’ benefit. If you see any errors, please comment and I will edit. In recent years, we’ve had cause to discuss the …
These are exciting times. Religious persecution is a scary thing, I don’t think my children even fully grasp yet what is happening right now in the country, though we’ve explained it to them. But to see people of all faiths standing up for what is right, not just because it’s in our Constitution, but because …
Prompted by this news article. I’ve been closely following the RH bill debate in the Philippines for several months now. One of the biggest reasons proponents of the bill give for pushing for the bill is that the bill will legislate helping families achieve their ideal family size. I know. Doesn’t make sense, does it? …
Well, I’ve spent the last fifteen minutes trying to post another reply at this blog post over at Definitely Filipino — and my comment just won’t go through, so I’m doing it here. The latest missive from “Kizmet”: Reproductive Health Bill: the Bible’s Viewpoint vs. the Catholic Church’s LOL indeed Stef. Those Bible texts were …
Makes me wish I could see this scene happening for real.
Nina over at the forum asks about Sarah Palin being pro-contraception. I googled after she asked, but couldn’t find a definitive answer besides the single source American Papist mentions here — no confirmation or denial either after that article. If anyone has the answer, please comment. This doesn’t change my vote even if it were …
This post may be qualified as venting, because I do need to get these off my chest. While I am a very opinionated person I don’t believe in confronting people who don’t know me well enough to know that I’m speaking from my heart. What makes this difficult is that I’ve been seeing so many …
And a lawyer to boot. You won’t usually see “Filipino”, “lawyer”, “writer”, and “understands Catholic teaching” all in the same sentence. Add to that he’s got an understanding of how contraceptives REALLY work. But hey, there’s always got to be a first time for everything, right? Contraception and Abortion A small excerpt, but you do …
