CAMBRIDGE, MA, June 5, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman has announced that taking oral contraceptives caused depression that plunged her into some “dark moments” as a teenage college student. The actress, best known for her portrayal as Padme in the popular big screen “Star Wars” saga, spoke to graduates of her alma mater, Harvard University, last Wednesday. Portman admitted she had a difficult first and second year during her the keynote speech at Harvard College’s Class Day ceremony. “Some combination of being 19, dealing with my first heartbreak, taking birth control pills that have since been taken off the…

Population control won’t solve climate change, Caritas official says

No_carreola

VATICAN CITY, May 16, 2015–Controlling populations is not the answer in fighting poverty and protecting the environment, says a leading official for the Catholic aid federation, Caritas Internationalis. “We do not see that population control, the way it is being thought by many, is the right way to go forward,” Caritas secretary general Michel Roy said in an interview with CNA. The question of sustaining the planet is not approached “by suppressing people,” he said. Roy has been in Rome for Caritas International’s 20th general assembly which has been running from May 12-17 on the theme: “One human family, care…

BREAKING: House votes to ban abortions in the U.S. after five months

baby-sleeping-hands-3-672x372

5:30 PM, MAY 13, 2015  BECKY YEH On the anniversary of the conviction of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell, the U.S. House voted in favor of banning abortions across the country after five months. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act passed the House on a 242 to 184 vote, and now heads to the Senate. Lawmakers wrangled with the measure, also known as H.R. 36, in January, which sabotaged a highly anticipated vote on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade; however, the measure was reintroduced for another vote on the anniversary of Gosnell’s conviction. The law would effectively ban abortions in the U.S. after 20 weeks— when…

The amendment suffered a major blow in 2013 when Parliament passed a bill allowing abortion for the first time in Ireland at any…

inter.-news4-610x3571

May 4, 2015    Becky Yeh The number of abortion facilities in Ohio has dropped by almost half since the Buckeye State upped restrictions protecting women and preborn children over the past four years, a review of records by the Associated Press shows.

Seven abortion providers out of 16 have either closed down mills or curbed abortion services since 2011, while an eighth facility – a Toledo-based abortion center – is currently operating amidst litigation. Currently, nine abortion facilities remain open in the state. The number of induced abortions in Ohio…

By Kevin Jones Dublin, Ireland, Apr 26, 2015 / 03:58 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Opponents of a referendum that would recognize “gay marriage” in Ireland face an uphill fight, but one commentator says they can win if people are willing to speak up and focus on the need for children to have a mother and a father. “I think civil marriage is a really critical institution for upholding the common good – specifically the good of children being raised by their own mother and father in a lifelong committed relationship,” said Ben…

Photo of baby David, miscarried at 7 weeks, goes viral

inter.-news4-610x3571

  7:58 AM, MAR 6, 2015 NANCY FLANDERS 72 COMMENTS It’s as clear as day that baby David Raphael, miscarried at 7 weeks gestation, is a human being. And when his mother sent her story and a photo of David to Planned Parenthood clinic director-turned-pro-life advocate Abby Johnson, his photo went viral. It’s an amazing image. Baby David in an intact sac, held by his mother. His developing eyes, arms and legs undeniably there, making him undeniably more than a “blob of tissue.” But that’s what many women are told is all they are carrying when they head to the abortion clinic….
