Seeing Abortion

by Bishop Robert Barron . April 9, 2019 .

We stand at a pivotal point in the great moral debate over abortion in our country—not because new arguments have emerged, but rather because laws so breathtaking in their barbarism have been passed, and a film so visceral in its presentation of the reality of abortion has found a wide audience.

The Death of God and the Loss of Human Dignity

by Bishop Robert Barron . July 28, 2015 .

The recent hidden-camera videos of two Planned Parenthood physicians bantering cheerfully about selling the body parts of aborted infants is only possible in a world where human dignity becomes untethered from God.
