When Jim Hughes, Campaign Life Coalition president, hired Ann Liptok 27 years ago as his secretary in the first small, cramped CLC office in downtown Toronto, he was puzzled.

Missouri stem cell initiative really about cloning

By the narrowest of margins (51 per cent to 49 per cent) voters in Missouri passed Amendment 2, ostensibly a constitutional amendment that would permit embryonic stem cell research and ban human cloning.

The realities behind large families

“Are they all yours?” “She’s pregnant again?” “You know how that happens, right?” “How do you do it?

Good things happen at Christmas time

Will there be a ‘people cam’?

“Would homosexuality be one of nature’s ways to control world overpopulation?” a student in our Senior’s College biology class asked the other day.  She didn’t know there isn’t actually an overpopulation problem. The professor didn’t enlighten her. Didn’t tell her there are more TVs than people in the average North American home. Didn’t tell her that an aging population and declining fertility are now the biggest problem facing ... (Continue reading)

Oregon sugarcoats assisted-suicide terminology

Physician-assisted suicide in the state of Oregon will be officially referred to as “death with dignity” from now on, the Oregon Department of Human Services has decided.

In any other time in history, this was known as the crime of infanticide. It is now becoming viewed as “dying with dignity.”... (Continue reading)
