The Case for the Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act

Recently, a few states have even begun to expand the boundaries of these laws with model legislation from Americans United for Life. Known as the Abortion Pill Reversal Information Act, this legislation would require abortionists to inform women of the ability to reverse the effects of abortion-inducing drugs such as Mifeprex. But a question for the pro-life layman may arise-what is the purpose of such informed consent statutes?

How do we continue to pass on the Faith? This is a timeless question worth asking, especially for Catholic teachers beginning a new school year. Every year begins with anticipation and hope, for both teachers and students alike. Yet, for teachers, there can be some apprehension of how the students will receive the message about the Faith. What is the best way to explain the Faith, in terms that are understandable yet draw students more deeply into the mystery of God?


Recently in the news for mistakenly claiming that the Catholic Church would change its position on homosexual “marriage”, Tim Kaine, governor of Virginia and Hillary Clinton’s choice as her vice-presidential running mate, is a self-proclaimed Catholic and an ardent of abortion. For orthodox Catholics, and according to every papal document dealing with the abortion issue, these two positions are mutually exclusive.

The family, for Chrysostom, is like the Church as a communion of baptized persons living in unity under the Headship of Jesus Christ that has visible and invisible dimensions. Two types of activities make homes as Churches, he says, prayer and the centrality of Scripture. In his Homily 26 on Acts of the Apostles St. John preaches, “Let the house be a Church consisting of men and women…”For where two”, He says, “are gathered in My Name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt 18:20).
