WASHINGTON (CNS) — If Cuba is going to undergo the kind of political transition that leads to an end of the 50-year-old U.S. embargo, the work toward reconciliation and forgiveness that the Catholic Church is trying to facilitate there is an essential step in the right direction, according to the archbishop of Miami.

The observation by Archbishop Thomas Wenski came just after Cuba released the last of 75 prisoners who had been held since anti-government protests in 2003.

Archbishop Wenski last visited Cuba in February with a group of Cuban-American pilgrims who were returning to their homeland for the first time. The pilgrimage brought the group by bus from Havana to Santiago, in the...READ MORE

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has signed into law a measure forcing crisis-pregnancy centers that do not provide abortion services to post signs disclosing whether they provide abortion and contraception or make referrals for such services and whether or not there is a licensed medical provider on site. When Bloomberg signed the bill, he expressed some doubt as to whether the bill was constitutional, but insisted he was signing in “good conscience.”

NEW YORK — According to the Guttmacher Institute, the national average for abortion is 22% of all pregnancies. New York City, however, may be the abortion capital of America: the city’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reports that in 2009, 41% of its 225,000 pregnancies ended in abortion.

That number may continue to rise dramatically if pro-life pregnancy centers are hampered by a new law.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg March 15 signed into law Bill 371-A, a measure forcing such centers that do not provide abortion services to change the way they advertise. Specifically, all signs and advertising must make a series of 10 different disclosures in English and Spanish, including whether...READ MORE

Lost in the Translation (2841)

Youth catechism publisher says ‘contraceptive’ language is not in original text.

SAN FRANCISCO — The English-language publisher of a new Vatican-sponsored youth catechism says that a passage suggesting the use of contraception by Christian couples is not in the book’s original German text, which was incorrectly translated into Italian.

“The Italian translation was really a mistaken understanding of the German,” Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio, Ignatius Press’ founding editor, said April 12. “We did notice in the German original there was some ambiguity, but we wanted to translate it in the way we knew was most consistent with the Church’s teachings.”

The creation of the 300-page YouCat was overseen by Cardinal Archbishop Christoph Schönborn of Vienna, who edited the 1992...READ MORE

Budget Showdown Fallout (2575)

‘Big Abortion’ vs. American taxpayers: Who won the budget standoff?

WASHINGTON — Last month, Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., described Capitol Hill’s escalating budget standoff as “Big Abortion vs. American Taxpayers.” That forecast turned out to be prescient: The showdown ended late April 8, after Republicans agreed to a truce on their effort to defund Planned Parenthood in exchange for Democratic budgetary concessions.

The agreement was cemented just two hours before a deadline for shutting down the federal government. While both parties sought to claim victory, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, was seen as the biggest winner, and he heralded the “largest real-dollar-spending cut in American history.”

The speaker’s pro-life allies, however, vented...READ MORE
