INTERVIEW / ISABEL VAUGHAN-SPRUCE

UK pro-life: "I was arrested for praying in silence"

On December 6, Isabel Vaughan-Spruce was arrested for praying silently in front of a closed abortion clinic. She will be tried in February for violating the PSPO which recently established a buffer zone around the clinic. "In the last ten years we have assisted over one hundred women", but now the ban "prevents us from being there when women need us most". The Daily Compass interviewed Isabel Vaughan-Spruce.


Melina: “The possible good risks being the middle name of evil”
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN ROME

Melina: “The possible good risks being the middle name of evil”

"When the moral precepts that protect the self-offering meaning of sexuality and human generation are contradicted, in reality we are not only going beyond the letter of a particular norm, but we are going against the spirit and meaning of the very law that God has written in our heart". says Msgr. Livio Melina, in the keynote address (excerpts of which we offer in advance) which open the conference A Response to the Pontifical Academy for Life's publication: Theological Ethics of Life.

Great Britain confirms: unborn Down children can be eliminated

The rejection of Heidi Crowter’s appeal, courageous defender of the rights of Down people, legitimises discrimination against the disabled by allowing abortion up until birth even in the birth canal. The Catholic bishops protest: an "illogical and unjust" sentence.

8 billion people and there’s still room for many more

The milestone of eight billion inhabitants on Earth has been the trigger to instil the usual fear of overpopulation. But the world is not overpopulated, simply the neo-Malthusians are imposing unfounded and specious rules (on agriculture, energy, food) to prevent development and decrease the population. They are the ones we have to fear.

The “Mazzucato case”: Vatican no longer considers faith a virtue

On his return from Bahrain Pope Francis justifies the appointment of Mariana Mazzucato to the Pontifical Academy for Life. The appointment is paradoxical because of the professor's pro-abortion statements and atheism, but for the Pope it is "a fresh breath of humanity". Yet, up to Benedict XVI, atheism was deemed detrimental to mankind and society.

Euthanasia for depression: the 'Shanti case' cancels hope

After surviving an Isis attack, 23-year-old Shanti De Corte from Belgium was so traumatised she requested euthanasia, with her parents’ consent. According to a neurologist, she had other options. But without a perspective which includes eternity, the alternative is to reject reality, including its dramas, and to seek any means of escape, including death.

Womb transplant for trans reduces people to pieces

There has long been talk of uterus transplants for men who feel like women. Some justify it in the name of 'equality'. But encouraging this change - contrary to nature - increases the discomfort of trans people, because it widens the gap between biological data and psychological perception.


“EU under the thumb of Big Pharma over new pandemic”
INTERVIEW WITH MEP DONATO

“EU under the thumb of Big Pharma over new pandemic”

"It’s the Pharmaceutical companies who are dictating what agenda the European Parliament should follow by forecasting future pandemics and imposing vaccines, already in production, but without the EMA’s approval". The independent MEP Donato raises the alarm, over implicit admissions and demands on the EU Commission: "The responsibility for the adverse effects lies with the states because the vaccines were tested in haste; no tests were conducted to prevent contagion; flexibility requested to enable the sale of vaccines even without an emergency"

"Baby A": first declared dead, then alive, for judge should die

The case in the United Kingdom of a baby who came back to life after being declared dead has led to the revision of the guidelines on the declaration of "brain death". Yet, it may not serve to save lives, because judges can still apply the principle of "best interests". As in the case of "Baby A": he breathes and moves but his life support will be withdrawn, because the real criterion is eugenics.

Paglia case: how to destroy Catholic morality

Recent statements, in Italy, by the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life on abortion have caused scandal and controversy. But these are not extemporaneous remarks, rather there is a precise intention to transform the entire moral doctrine of the Church. Monsignor Paglia is only carrying out the task entrusted to him.


England’s "best interests" law would have even killed Schumacher

England’s "best interests" law would have even killed Schumacher

Michael Schumacher is alive albeit severely disabled, also thanks to his wife. While the English courts and protocols in the name of "dignity" prevented Archie Battersbee’s family from taking care of him. Two similar cases divided by a basic difference: the country where the accident occurred.
