WASHINGTON — A new innovative weapon in the fight against human trafficking and sex slavery is coming this year from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, more than a year after abortion politics led the Obama administration to kill federal funding for the Church’s top-rated outreach effort.

“We lost a contract, but we’ve not gone away,” said Nathalie Lummert, special-programs director at the USCCB’s Office of Migrant and Refugee Services (MRS). “We’re taking a decade of experience and now are rolling out a new program that brings communities directly into the fight against human trafficking.”

The new initiative of the U.S. bishops’ Anti-Trafficking Program is “The Amistad...READ MORE

Pope Joins March for Life Via Twitter (2726)

‘I join all those marching for life from afar, and pray that political leaders will protect the unborn and promote a culture of life,’ the Holy Father tweeted Jan. 25.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI has sent a Twitter message expressing his solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of people marching in America this week for a culture of life and an end to abortion.

“I join all those marching for life from afar, and pray that political leaders will protect the unborn and promote a culture of life,” he tweeted Jan. 25.

From coast to coast, pro-life marches and rallies in America continue to mark the week of Jan. 22 as the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade — the Supreme Court decision that effectively legalized abortion throughout the nation.

San Francisco's Walk for Life West Coast on Jan. 26 will be attended by Archbishop Carlo Viganò, apostolic...READ MORE

From Abortion Worker to Catholic Apostle (7786)

A former Planned Parenthood director, Abby Johnson, tells how an ultrasound of an unborn baby’s fight for life eventually let her to the Catholic Church and to a new apostolate.

Abby Johnson

In 2009, Abby Johnson left her position as health-center director of Planned Parenthood in Bryan, Texas, where she had worked for eight years. Her book Unplanned tells her compelling story.

Last Easter, Johnson and her husband entered the Catholic Church. She spoke with Tim Drake about her conversion and her new apostolate for abortion workers who desire to leave the industry: And Then There Were None.

 

Last Easter, you and your husband both entered the Catholic Church. What was your denominational background?

I grew up Baptist, but became Episcopalian while I worked at Planned Parenthood.

 

What led you to consider the Catholic Church?

I grew up with praise-and-worship...READ MORE

Legacy of Abortion: 40 Years of Victims (1937)

Remarks of Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., co-chairman of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus, at the 2013 March for Life.

Forty years ago this past Tuesday marks the U.S. Supreme Court’s infamous, reckless and inhumane abandonment of women and babies to abortionists.

Forty years of victims — dead babies, wounded women, shattered families.

Forty years of government-sanctioned violence against women and children.

Since 1973, more than 55 million children have been killed by abortion — a staggering loss of children’s precious lives — a death toll that equates to the entire population of England.

The passage of time hasn’t changed the fact that abortion is a serious, lethal violation of fundamental human rights. And that women and children deserve better. And that the demands of justice, generosity and...READ MORE

‘Forty Years of Abortion in This Country Is a Disgrace’ (3239)

Special to the Register: Catholic University of America president John Garvey speaks to CUA students on the day of the 2013 March for Life.

CUA president John Garvey.

– Catholic News Agency

I am happy to see so many of you here today. Your optimism and enthusiasm are inspiring. Yesterday, Jamila Evans, in charge of our women’s and pro-life campus ministry, did an interview with Catholic TV. She said that the pro-life cause is the issue of your generation. So it is.

On Tuesday, we lamented 40 years of abortions since Roe v. Wade made the practice a constitutional right. We mourned the loss of 55 million lives. We grieved for women cornered or shamed into having abortions. And we decried the ambition of the abortion industry — a business so corrupt that it demonized the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation rather than lose funds or implicit support.

Today, you and I and...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — A group of pro-life Democrats is protesting radical abortion legislation in New York, as well as assertions that there is no place for them in the Democratic Party.

“New York women do not actually need greater access to abortion, but a more supportive system to allow real choice, should they want to bring their pregnancies to term,” said Democrats for Life of America in a Jan. 17 statement.

“Looser abortion restrictions will do nothing to help women who feel financially strapped or who lack family support and often turn to abortion as a last resort,” the group added.

The statements come in response to the reintroduction of New York’s Reproductive Health Act to the state...READ MORE
