Sheila Liaugminas | 15 October 2013 | SHEILA REPORTS |  
tags: 'Honor Diaries', girls' education, human dignity, Malala Yousafzai, Nobel Peace Prize, world peace

The latest breaking Pope Francis story

tags: Catholic Church, evangelization, face of Christ, George Weigel, human dignity, inalienable truths, Jesuit interview, Pope Francis, right to life
The media didn’t catch Francis’s latest. They’re too busy recycling their first round of misreporting on him.


House votes to ban late term abortion

tags: human dignity, human rights, late term abortion ban, Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, women's health
The horrors revealed in the trial of notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell shook even pro-choice citizens and it won’t be the same again for the abortion movement. Which is probably why a bill to ban late term abortion made it to a floor vote in the House of Representatives this week, and the rhetoric about it got so dramatic.

Can human dignity find a firm foundation in secularism?


Pope Francis surprises

Sheila Liaugminas | 19 March 2013 | SHEILA REPORTS |  
tags: Evangelical Catholicism, Gospel message, human dignity, papacy, Pope Francis, Universal Declaration of Human Rights
It hasn’t yet been a week since he was elected, but the man announced as Cardinal Bergoglio/Pope Francis who first appeared to the world on the loggia of St. Peter’s and stood stiff and straight and speechless for what seemed a long time took only a few minutes to throw the world off balance. In a good way.

See the beauty in these very special sisters

Michael Cook | 17 January 2013 | FAMILY EDGE |  
tags: Canada, conjoined twins, human dignity
This brief but touching video speaks for itself. Felicia Hogan, from British Columbia, discovered that the twins she was expecting were conjoined. Despite enormous pressure to abort them, she gave birth to Tatiana and Krista. It was impossible to separate them surgically without killing them. But they are loved and full of life. Thanks to Signal Hill for the video.


Pro-lifers taking a new direction

William West | 15 January 2013 | FEATURES |  
tags: abortion, human dignity, human rights, prisons, pro-life
Prison reform is human dignity issue that needs to be addressed urgently.


American culture and politics going forward

Sheila Liaugminas | 04 December 2012 | SHEILA REPORTS |  
tags: abortion, big government, faith and family, human dignity, moral confusion, political narrative, power of the state, pro-life cause, relativism, social issues, storytelling
The president made that word his campaign slogan followed by a period. Now it should be followed by a question mark.


How to value a child

Mary Cooney | 24 November 2012 | FEATURES |  
tags: cost of children, family values, human dignity
Putting a price on the head of your potential child is applying the wrong set of values altogether.


Work and leisure in right order

Sheila Liaugminas | 04 September 2012 | SHEILA REPORTS |  
tags: culture, dignity of work, human dignity, John Paul II, Josef Pieper, Labor Day, leisure
Many people overdo their work life and many people mishandle their leisure time and many are probably the same people. Labor Day is a good time to consider what we’re celebrating and how.
