Pro-Life & Family Quotes

"Since everything is interrelated, concern for the protection of nature is also incompatible with the justification of abortion. How can we genuinely teach the importance of concern for other vulnerable beings, however troublesome or inconvenient they may be, if we fail to protect a human embryo, even when its presence is uncomfortable and creates difficulties?"
Pope Francis
Laudato Si', #120

Celebrating the Family

On Sunday, more than 100 people gathered in Auckland for an afternoon to celebrate and pray for the family.  The event was organised by Family Life International NZ to recognise the importance of the natural family as a vital cell in society, which must be protected, celebrated and nurtured.  Read more...

David Seymour's End of Life Choice Bill
David Seymour, the sole MP for the political party ACT, submitted a new "End of Life Choice" Member's Bill to Parliament on Wednesday.  The submission was not a surprise as he had announced earlier this year, after the high profile High Court case of Lecretia Seales, that this was a project he was working on.  Read more...

The value of accepting suffering

One of the most inspirational people I have ever met came in the form of a very fragile woman, Alison Davis.  What a grace and wonderful moment to meet her and her devoted caregiver of more than twenty years, Colin Harte.  Motivational speakers and leaders of all manner and kind can speak eloquent words and bring societal change about through their social and verbal skills.  BUT this lady, reached to the very soul of my being.

Whom do they serve?

It appears to be generally understood by the public that aborted foetal cells are absolutely necessary for research.  There is a benefit to taking the life of a child - all for the greater good we are told.  "Similar to organ donation" would be a comparable explanation to justify and placate the curious.  But is this really the case; that using the cells, tissue and body parts of an unborn child is advantageous to medical research?  Read more...

The dignity of the human person, abortion... and us

The ongoing scandal in the United States over Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby organs has caused many to sit up and take notice to the tragedy of abortion.  Five US States have defunded Planned Parenthood in the wake of this scandal.  People are now questioning whether they can really say they are "pro-choice" after seeing the reality of the abortion industry, and the harsh truth that abortion kills a human being - a child.  Read more...

Planned Parenthood expose must call us to act

The recent expose of Planned Parenthood, America's largest abortion provider selling baby arts reinforces what many in the pro-life field have been saying for a long time.  Abortion has nothing to do with "rights"; it is driven by profit.  Read more...

Building a culture of life with love

Imagine a culture where every human life was respected from his or her natural conception until their natural end.  Imagine how it would be if the natural family was upheld as the essential element of a stable society and the best protector of children.  Imagine the day when every person works in unity for the common good.  Today, in the name of freedom, so many are working against life, faith and family, and the culture of life that we work for seems so difficult to attain.  Read more...

Celebrating the Annunciation and 20 years of Evangelium Vitae
Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.  May it be done to me according to your word."  Luke 1:38  These words of great trust in God, and self-giving, were those of Mary as the Angel Gabriel came to her, and announced the conception of Our Lord, Jesus Christ.  Today we, in the Catholic Church, celebrate that moment.  A moment where Mary put aside all her fear and her wondering and offered herself totally to the will of God and to the gift of life.  Read more...
