  Our life is not an invention. It is a gift from God. He had the courage to trust in us so much that he placed the gift of life, the gift of existence, into our hands life, existence, and gave us the necessary tools to live it well. Perhaps we never considered life as […]

Every time I give a talk on the methods of abortion the utter barbarity of our apparantly civilised world is brought home to me when I describe a D&C abortion where the unborn baby is cut into pieces and extracted from the womb. The reality of it is given a face in this moving video […]
