Rory Leishman: Dr. Warren Hern is a cold-hearted killer—the moral equivalent of a hired assassin—who has no compunction about aborting even the healthy baby of a healthy mother during the last stages of a pregnancy simply because the mother has decided that she no longer wants her child to live. In this respect, Hern stands virtually alone. Only a tiny minority of [...]

The abortion issue and the emergence of false gods

Donald DeMarco, Commentary: In an exceptionally well-reasoned article that appeared in The National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly (“Thomas Aquinas on the Acts of Creation and Procreation,” Winter 2003), Susan Seiner-Wright argued that, “For many, sexual activity is clearly not related to a conceived child as ‘a way is related to its end.’ Instead, sexual activity clearly bears the characteristics of immanent action, which Aquinas [...]

Imperial Pride

The final canto of Dante’s Inferno begins with a chilling line: “Vexilla regis prodeunt inferni”—that is, “the banners of the King of Hell advance.” The Latin phrase is adapted from the opening lines of a hymn to the True Cross. The meaning of the original is twisted, however, by that final word, “of Hell,” which turns the pious words of the hymn [...]
