Saint Paul Students for Life: I am a human being

This post was written for Saint Paul Students for Life by fradriansharp. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

Campaign Life Coalition has launched a new website project: http://www.iamahumanbeing.ca/.

The CLC newsletter explains that:

This important educational tool has been created to support Stephen Woodworth’s private member’s motion (M-312), which seeks to establish a special committee to re-examine Section 223 of Canada’s Criminal Code which states that a child only becomes a human being once he or she has fully proceeded from the womb. Woodworth has called for a full  examination of medical and scientific facts by a committee of parliamentarians and a discussion about how these facts impact our modern understanding of human rights.

Saint Paul Students for Life: Pope Benedict XVI addresses the Pontifical Academy for Life on infertility

This post was written for Saint Paul Students for Life by fradriansharp. It does not necessarily represent the views of NCLN.

The Church pays great attention to the distress of infertile couples, she cares for them and for this very reason encourages medical research. Science, however, is not always able to respond positively to the desires of numerous couples. I would therefore like to remind spouses in a condition of infertility, that this does not thwart their matrimonial vocation. Spouses are always called by their baptismal and matrimonial vocation itself to cooperate with God in the creation of a new human life. The vocation to love is in fact a vocation to the gift of self, and this is a possibility that no physical condition can prevent. Therefore, whenever science finds no answer, the answer that gives light comes from Christ.  – Benedict XVI, 25 February 2012.
