Six resources that offer real help for post-abortive women

TeenVogue can’t make up it’s mind about abortion. On the one hand, they see the need to promote it as a nonchalant procedure that is a normal part of the teenage experience. On the other, they seem to recognize that the procedure is not the same as getting a tooth pulled at the dentist. However, in […]

Dear UST: don’t fight Friday Fasting to sell Meatless Monday

Catholic Twitter broke into a bit of a frenzy earlier today when the Catholic University of St. Thomas (Minn.) Student Affairs Office posted a set of tweets seeming to advocate against abstaining from meat on Friday  – in order to promote the school’s Meatless Monday program in their main dining hall. The tweet contained this […]

In response to that pro-choice priest in TeenVogue

The last time I read TeenVogue, I was still thinking about what color my braces should be and whether my black background on MySpace looked cool or “too emo.”  But a recent article from the teen magazine that’s been making the rounds on social media is hard to ignore. It’s entitled: “I am a Priest, and […]

The feminists and the friars: How the Dominicans encountered the Women’s March

It was the day after the inauguration when hundreds of thousands of (mostly) women descended on Washington D.C. for the Women’s March, a show of solidarity against President Trump and an act of advocating for women’s rights and equality. The Women’s March was not without controversy. The organizers released a list of guiding principles including “open […]

Think finding parking in NYC is impossible? Mother Teresa thought so too

Finding parking is a pain for anyone – including St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta.  In July 1997, just months before her death, the 86-year old saint made a trip to New York City – in part to take care of her sisters’ parking woes. The main purpose of the trip was to to help the […]

Patron saints of refugees and immigrants, pray for us

President Trump’s order to implement stricter vetting on refugees and lower the cap for the number of refugees who can enter the United States has received criticism from many Catholic bishops and leaders throughout the country, who believe the move will only hurt innocent people fleeing war and terror. “Halting admissions of refugees for 90 […]

The Atlantic admits a 6-week-old unborn baby has a heart

Earlier this week, The Atlantic ran a particularly bad story. Normally known for its high-quality commentary on everything from literature to politics to culture, the magazine’s lapse is both unusual and disappointing. The article argues that heartbeats detectable in early pregnancy are not really heartbeats – they’re just contracting cells that can be seen via […]

Pro-lifers take the limelight on Saturday Night Live

Despite the tensions surrounding pro-lifers’ presence at the Women’s March on Washington this weekend, at the very least the controversy led to one bright spot: somewhat sympathetic treatment by mainstream comedy show Saturday Night Live. (Warning: the video below contains some graphic language)   In the January 21 “Weekend Update” segment, SNL cast member and […]

Debunking Planned Parenthood facts with Planned Parenthood facts

Is anyone else exhausted after defending their position as a pro-life feminist? I’m pretty sure my brain and my wrists have both developed some form of carpal tunnel in the past 36-48 hours. It all started when the Women’s March booted the group “New Wave Feminists” from their list of sponsors for being pro-life. The organizers of […]

Did You Know: The woman who hid Anne Frank was Catholic?

The story of Anne Frank is well-known, thanks to the diary left behind by the 15-year-old Jewish girl recounting her two years in hiding during World War II. Less well-known is the story of Miep Gies, the Dutch Catholic woman responsible for helping to hide Anne’s family, and for later preserving her diary. As a […]
