C.J. Doyle Executive Director Catholic Action League of Massachusetts
Why is Cardinal Sean O'Malley enabling Boston's Catholic politicians like Mayor Marty Walsh, with praise, platforms and awards when they publicly rebuke Catholic teaching on abortion? Eight of thirteen City councilors are Catholic. In a 12-0 vote (McCarthy of Hyde Park was absent), a recent Boston City Council non binding resolution sought to request repeal of the Federal Hyde Amendment, thereby noting taxpayers should pay for abortion and make Boston a 'sanctuary city for abortion'. NARAL Pro-Choice MA. gave Marty Walsh its 2016 Man of Choice Award. While supposedly pro-life, is Cardinal O'Malley's overt actions working vigorously against the tenets of Catholicism and the pro-life movement?
Honorable Raymond Flynn Former Mayor, City of Boston Former Ambassador to the Vatican
Is Adult stem cell research the answer to finding real remedies, and even cures to autistic and other special needs people like former Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn's grandson Braden? Do families with special needs children feel emotionally alienated from their own families, communities and society? What is the moral message needed for inclusiveness and respect for each other? Ray Flynn shares why God's love for everybody is so important.
Mark Harrington Executive Director Created Equal, Inc www.CreatedEqual.org www.ProjectWeakLink.com
Is Stericycle, a medical waste company, and its CEO Charles Alutto, collaborating with and enabling the abortion industry by collecting, transporting and disposing of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them? If abortion providers like Planned Parenthood cannot dispose of its medical waste, aka dismembered victims of abortion, could the abortion industry be effectively shut down? Was the voluntary dismissal of all claims against Created Equal and Mark Harrington's a victory for babies in the womb and for free speech? And what role do graphic pictures of aborted babies play in convincing the public it's intrinsically evil?
Philip D. Moran Founder & Past President Pro-Life Legal Defense Fund of MA.
Attorney Phil Moran gives his insights into President - Elect Donald Trump proposed Federal Judicial nominees vetted by the Federalist Society. These nominees include six federal appeal court judges and five state supreme court judges. Their views could have an historic impact on future U.S. Supreme Court decisions affecting the lives of the unborn. Where do these nominees stand on pro-life issues and whom did they clerk for. Also discussed are the type of cases which might change Federal Law and their spillover effect on state law. Also Mary Moe law discussed in MA. where parents might not even know their daughter had an abortion.
David N. O'Steen, Ph.D. Executive Director National Right to Life Committee NRLC.org
A pro-life polling perspective just prior to the November 2016 elections. Where does the voting public stand on the abortion issue? What works and doesn't work regarding pro-life messaging? The stark contrast between Trump & Clinton. The competitive U.S. Senate races discussed. The fallacy of Pro-Aborts claiming they represent most, if not all women.
James E. Dixon The Common Man Reflecting upon the Sexual Revolution
The Common Man on the street, afloat at sea, and in the air reflects upon growing up during the 1960s and 1970s sexual revolution. How did contraception and abortion change the relationship between man and woman? With divorce all too common, is marriage nowadays mere ownership of another or the gifting of oneself to another? Are children protected in the pandemic of the 'shacking up' culture? STDs and STIs have proliferated dramatically, along with increased infertility. Has the sexual revolution been good or bad for our American society?
Monique Chireau, M.D. Assistant Professor Division of Clinical and Epidemiological Research Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology Duke University Medical Center
On the front lines of cultural conflict, what are moral and ethical issues faced by OB/GYN medical doctors? the advent of three parent technology with Mitochondrial manipulation aka 'Mitochondrial Nuclear Transfer; pressuring medical student interns to learn how to do abortions; the excessive profiteering of In Vitro Fertilization at $15,000 to $25,000 per menstrual cycle; OB/GYN ' intervention to save the mother's life in hard pregnancy cases; 'Snow flake Babies' where embryo adoption versus embryo trafficking for couples having trouble conceiving; and the moral/ethical questions for medical students considering obstetrics and gynecology as their career path specialty?
William B. Hurlbut, M.D. Consulting Professor Stanford University Medical Center's Department of Neurobiology and President's Bush's Council on Bioethics from 2001 to 2009
Wide ranging discussion with Dr. Hurlbut includes: how Mitt Romney changed his mind and public stance on abortion and embryonic stem cell research; Altered Nuclear Transfer as a solution to ESCR; CRISPR , an amazing, major new gene editing tool for medical and scientific research and new products in the study of early human development, which may be as important as the discovery of electricity in its future applications; is CRISPR a blessing or a curse; and the many moral issues to be discussed and vetted with medical advancements resulting from CRISPR. Can human dignity be preserved? And much, much more.
Honorable David J. Weldon, M.D. Former U.S. Congressman Republican FL 15th District 1995 - 2009
In 2014, the Insurance Commissioner of California willfully violated the Weldon Amendment, which affirms the right of conscience for health care workers, such as doctors and nurses, and health care entities like clinics, medical centers, hospitals and health insurance companies. The Obama administration, using specious Orwellian reasoning affirmed Federal funding for California in direct contradiction to the Federal statute. Can other states now disregard the Weldon amendment? And what impact has this brazen ploy had on the health care industry?
Joni Shepherd Executive Director Hope and Grace International
How can we change the culture in the church to deal with the secret sin of abortion? What are tangible ways for pastors to broach the subject from the pulpit and one on one? After all, 54 to 70% of those who have had an abortion in America identify with the Christian faith. Our guest equips pastors and ministers with tools in a safe and loving way to make future abortions unthinkable!
Nikolas T. Nikas, Esq. Co-Founder & President Bioethics Defense Fund www.BDFund.org
Much like the Dred Scott decision where Negroes were considered 'inferior' human beings, are embryos considered 'inferior' human beings by science and biotechnology? While some say 'you cannot legislate morality', should scientists be able to trample moral right and wrong by specious reasoning of 'If we can do unbridled research, why not'? Will biotechnology profoundly affect our society in the future?
Rev. Eugene F. Rivers III Founder & Director The Seymour Institute
Abortion is the leading cause of death among blacks, especially in American cities. Rev. Rivers sees opportunities for major mobilization by blacks to flip the narrative and go on the offensive in our pop culture by messaging to millennials, 18 to 40 year olds, that 'in the womb, black lives matter'. He envisions black Pentacostals joining with Catholics because ultimately, there must be 'justice for the unborn'. Also, Rev. Rivers remarks about Bernard Cardinal Law.
Lee Crowley Ruth Pakaluk Award Winner and Vigil Coordinator 40 Days for Life / Worcester
Pro-Life volunteer extraordinaire explains the many opportunities to get involved in the pro-life movement. Lee's journey includes establishing her own parish pro-life group, to fund raising and administrator for maternity home Visitation House, to Vigil Coordinator of 40 Days for Life in Worcester, to teaching students both young and old, to connecting parishes in pro-life activities. And that's just a few. There's something for everyone.
Kevin Hall New England Director Citizens Commission on Human Rights www.CCHRNewEngland.org Part 2
So what's with the pandemic epidemic of psychotic drugs being given by the psychiatry profession to children as young as two years old. Now drug combo cocktails are prevalent too. False claims of improvement, clinical trial fraud, and false marketing by drug companies has resulted in a halt on new psychotic drugs. However, now there's a rise in electric shock treatment. The FDA is pushing to de-regulate shock devices. Is any of this good for our infants, toddlers, children. teenagers and society?
Kevin Hall New England Director Citizens Commission on Human Rights WWW.CCHRNewEngland.org Part 1
How has Psychiatry & Psychology evolved to be prominent in the eugenics movement from Thomas Spencer in the 1870s, Alfred Ploetz & Ernst Rudin of Germany in the early 1900s through WW II, South Africa under apartheid and to Al Queda today. Are infants,children and teenagers over prescribed with these drugs to their detriment? And whose pressuring them to take these drugs... the initial convincing angle, the threat angle and the bribery angle are discussed.
David A. Wemhoff, J.D. Author John C. Murray, Time/Life and the American Proposition
Was Thomas Paine's treatise 'Common Sense' in January 1776 the catalyst in elevating Natural Law over Divine Positive Law? Has Catholicism taken a back seat to the 'American Way'? Pope Leo in 1899 decried heretical 'Liberalism' of American idealogy. Did Jesuit priest John C. Murray, concomitant with Henry Luce of Time/Life publishing affect how the Catholic church accommodated the 'American Way' of individualism? Does this individualism result in those desiring an abortion being justified? And how is religious freedom affected in America and around the world?
Randall K. O'Bannon, Ph.D. Director of Education and Research National Right to Life Committee NRLC.org
UC San Francisco and Bixby funded studies, such as the 'Turnaway Study', claim: denial of an abortion is bad for women; women are happier after their abortion: healthier; financially better off in the long run; and creates less post abortive violence. Dr. Randall O'Bannon disagrees and asserts the same abortion friendly authors engage in sloppy science to reach their well funded, pre-determined conclusions. Rutgers study examined also. How do pro-lifers fight back against specious studies that reach the wrong conclusions?
Nancy Valko, R.N. Part 2 Spokeswoman National Association of Pro Life Nurses www.prolifenurses.org
Since the early 1990s up to today, are those who are pro-life in the health care profession being pushed out? How did the Budget Reconciliation Act of 1991 affect doctors and nurses? Do hospitals' futility policy and ethics committees in effect, overrule the patient and thereby reject the Hippocratic Oath between a doctor and patient? How did Medical Associations ''position of neutrality' lead to the prevailing thought that elderly and infirm 'shouldn't be a burden to others'? Have the conscience rights across the entire spectrum of doctors and nurses been eviscerated by the nebulous concept of 'patient autonomy? In Part 2, Nancy Valko imparts her perspicacious insights.
Michael Hichborn President Lepanto Institute
Not being allowed to evangelize and staffed almost exclusively with pro-abortion, pro contraception employees who donate almost exclusively to pro-abortion politicians and organizations like 'Emily's List, why does Catholic Relief Services get to use the name 'Catholic'? Who's really in charge? And why does the U.S.C.C.B. put up with this heretical behavior diametrically opposed to Catholic teaching?
Nancy Valko, R.N. Part 1 Spokeswoman National Association of Pro Life Nurses www.nursesforlife.org
How has abortion and euthanasia changed the nursing profession over the past 47 years? In the 1960s, medical ethics wasn't even a course! Chicago attorney Louis Kutner's 'Living Will' actually hastened a patient's death. In 1982, the 'Baby Doe' judicial decision further exacerbated the denouement of the health care profession. And how does the major media and the 'Right to Die' movement affect nurses, doctors and health institutions? In Part 1. Nancy Valko, R.N. discusses from the 1960s into the early 1990s.
Louis Brown, J.D. Director Christ Medicus Foundation CURO
An exciting health and medical sharing program that is much less expensive, protects the right of conscience and witnesses to the new evangelization of Catholics and Christians. It's exempt from Obamacare regulations and the fines imposed by Obamacare. Also discussed is 'religious freedom' for doctors, nurses, pharmacists, hospitals and even some insurers, which are under attack from state and federal government. Can state governments violate the Weldon Amendment passed by the U. S. Congress?
Mark J. Rollo, M.D. Abortion Pill Reversal Part 2 AbortionPillReversal.com
If progesterone can out compete mifepristone at the progesterone receptor, then what are the eight real world challenges and barriers to women when considering abortion pill reversal? What is the proper protocol? Will a prescription of prometrium taken in capsule form be the catalyst for rapid growth of abortion pill reversal? And how do pregnancy resource centers, primary care physicians, OB/GYNs and emergency rooms at hospitals fit into this life saving protocol?
Mark J. Rollo, M.D. Abortion Pill Reversal Part 1 AbortionPillReversal.com
An ever increasing percentage of elective abortions are being done by the abortion pill RU-486 versus surgical abortions. Now there is hope for those women who have changed their minds, want to choose life and give birth to their babies. Dr. Mark J. Rollo explains in detail how this is done. What does Mifepristone, misoprostol and progesterone have to do with the process? What actions should women take, and up to when (9 weeks) can the abortion be reversed? While still fairly new as a protocol, what are the results in number of babies saved? And are possible birth defects an issue?
Eve Silver Medical Research Analyst & 'Hush' Film Liaison HushFilm.com
When women have an abortion, why are we not talking openly about women's health risks such as breast cancer, a compromised cervix leading to premature births in subsequent pregnancies, infertility and psychological damage, especially to post abortive women? Is there a clear unwillingness to deal with and let the general public know about the science involved with abortion? Or is it a well orchestrated cover-up?
Kathy Hill Massachusetts Regional Coordinator Silent No More
Where can post abortive women, men, parents, grandparents and even accomplices turn to discuss the taboo subject of abortion, which is often bottled up inside them? Can forgiveness really happen for those involved? Kathy Hill of Silent No More can help you in that process.
Karen A. Cross Political Director National Right to Life Committee NRLC.org
With 24 incumbent Republican U.S. Senate seats and only 10 incumbent Democratic Senate seats up for election in November 2016, will pro-abortion Democrats take control of the U.S. Senate? Only a net gain of five Democratic seats is needed. And what about the House of Representatives where Democrats need a net gain of 30 seats? Who's vulnerable and/or in competitive races? What are the countervailing forces and issues impacting these Federal elections? Karen Cross shares her thoughts.
Shannon Brandano, Esquire In Memory of Her Son Dayne Brandano
Is an opiate epidemic becoming a pandemic in our American society, taking the lives of our teenagers and young adults? Fentanyl, taken alone or with cocaine, is resulting in many unintended deaths. What can we do to save these lives from the disease of drug addiction? Shannon Brandano shares her experience and thoughts on how to get treatment and save lives.
Shenan J. Boquet President Human Life International HLI.org
Why is the mantra 'Condoms are Safe' both deceptive and a fallacy thrust upon nations around the world? Fr. Shenan Boquet explains why condoms and other forms of contraception usage result in an increase in HIV & STD cases, increased abortions and unbeknownst abortions due to an inhospitable womb. Can moral absolutes like 'Every Life is Precious' change the contraception mentality?
Fr. Shenan J. Boquet President Human Life International HLI.org
Why are Eastern European countries like Poland, Slovakia and Belarus becoming more pro-life whereas Central and Western European countries are not? How does the 'contraceptive mentality' that HLI founder Fr. Marx warned about affect birth rates, marriage, families, governments and nations? Can the contraceptive mentality be reversed? What will it take to do so?
Craig E. Collins, J.D. Author Yesterday's Law ... Abortion in Modern America
An insightful legal analysis of exactly why the majority opinion in Roe v. Wade is perhaps the most poorly reasoned decision in the history of American jurisprudence. For instance, how did Judge Harry Blackmun misuse the ''strict scrutiny rule' to declare abortion is a fundamental right? Or why did Blackmun totally ignore the 14th amendment? Or Blackmun's obvious specious reasoning by injecting a 'right to privacy' to justify abortion? And much, much, more..
Sharon Slater President Family Watch International And Author of the book 'Stand For the Family'
Why are Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton at the forefront of promoting sexual imperialism around the world? Why does Family Watch International find it embarassing to be an American at the United Nations? And what battles must FWI engage in to stop the profiteering and sexualization of children worldwide?
Roy R. Scarpato Co-Founder The Pro-Life Legal Defense Fund of MA.
How did a M.I.T. engineer get involved in the genesis of the Pro-Life Legal Defense Fund of MA over forty years ago? With Roe v. Wade obviating all fifty state abortion laws, what Massachusetts law was passed to limit Roe? Abortionist Bill Baird's Federal injunction led to the 'Judicial By-Pass' and the yet to be enforced 'health codes' at abortion mills to this current day due to MA Attorney General's 'prosecutorial discretion'.
Scott Lively, J.D. & Ph.D. President Abiding Truth Ministries DefendTheFamily.com
In the 1980s, his life changed when he saw photographs of an aborted baby. He thought "How could this be happening in America"? This wide ranging discussion with well known pro-life activist and author who is fighting the forces of evil. He offers his thoughts on his 25 year battle with the homosexual movement, their close ties with the pro-abortion forces, and their efforts to criminalize 'reparative therapy'.
Donna J. Harrison, M.D., Dip. ABOG Executive Director American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians & Gynecologists
Are health care workers, such as pharmacists, doctors and nurses obligated to the state before the patient? Is the hippocratic oath being totally eviscerated with recent court decisions? Will conscientiously objecting to abortion, refererals for abortion, and abortifacient drugs be eliminated by the Obama administration and the heavy hand of the federal government? And can a state regulate its own medical practices within its own borders?
Susan Conroy Part II Author, Artist and Friend of Mother Teresa of Calcutta
Among all the misery, disease, pollution, suffering and dying of the poorest of the poor in Calcutta, how did Mother Teresa's 'Home for the Dying' bring joy and dignity to those in their final days and hours? Do you have the 'hands to serve and the heart to love' those who are the untouchables of society ... the destitute, downtrodden and dying, and who are unloved and lonely?
Susan Conroy Part I Author, Artist & Friend of Mother Teresa of Calcutta
What's it like spending the better part of eleven years with Mother Teresa of Calcutta among the poorest of the poor? What are the Lessons of Love and the Secrets of Sanctity that Mother Teresa imbued in others? Is the nexus of cheerfulness and deep humility the path to sainthood?
David F. Pierre, Jr., Author Part II Sins of the Press ... The Untold Story of the Boston Globe's Reporting on Sex Abuse in the Catholic Church
How does publisher Tom Winship's wife, writing a column in the Boston Globe called ' Ask Beth', targeting teenagers and young adults with frequent reference to Wardell Pomeroy's (an Alfred Kinsey associate) oft cited book 'Girls and Sex', Gerry Studds, attorneys Rod MacLeish & Michael Garabedian, the debunked repressed memory argument, NAMBLA, ex-priest and writer James Carroll, John Geoghan and Paul Shanley set up the Boston Globe's attack on the Catholic Church? David Pierre explains.
David F. Pierre, Jr., Author Part I Sins of the Press ... The Untold Story of the Boston Globe's Reporting on Sex Abuse in the Catholic Church
According to the Academy award winning movie 'Spotlight', the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Boston knew about sexual abuse by clergy and did nothing about it. But is that really true? Did the Boston Globe's decades long war to demean, blame and belittle the Catholic Church affect its reporting truthfully? And was Cardinal Bernard Law mis-characterized in his culpability?
Patrick F. Fagan, Ph.D. Executive Director Marriage & Religion Research Institute & MARRIpedia.org
Are crimes against the intellect going on in the social sciences? Is American society being deceived by 'snowball sampling' and by the suppression of truthful findings that are contrary to political correctness by agenda driven organizations and even by academic journals? The social sciences may have the answer in MARRIpedia, which is a WikiPedia type resource based on good research and methods.
Reverend Dale S. Kuehne, Ph.D. Evangelical Pastor and Professor of Politics, Ethics, Economics and the Common Good at St. Anselm College. Author of 'Sex and the i World ... rethinking relationships beyond an age of individualism'.
Dr. Kuehne's book examines the place of sexuality in our relationships. From the denouement of the 'traditional' world to today's 'individual identity' world which has failed society as a whole. He purports perhaps a more beneficial sought after 'relationship' world where people yearn for relationships will be most beneficial to all concerned.
C.J. Doyle, Jr.
A Tribute to a truly great Bostonian John J. 'Wacko' Hurley. A profile in courage, fortitude, and grace for his Catholic faith, his Irish heritage, his South Boston community and his constitutional rights despite the loathsome Boston media's vitriolic attacks against him and the silence and failure of the Boston Catholic archdiocese to come to his and to St. Patrick's defense.
Lori Brannigan Kelly
What does it really take to run for any political office? Lori Kelly offers her insights as a first time candidate for MA. Republican State Committee and how she came to that decision.

Miriam Grossman, M.D. Psychiatrist & Author of 'Unprotected' written anonymously, 'Your Teaching My Child What?' and 'The Black and White Puppy'
Sexually transmitted Infections occur every 3 1/2 seconds in America. Does political correctness compromise the medical and education professions and thereby endanger teenagers, college students and young adults when sexual health is the concern? Is so called 'Comprehensive Sex Ed' more about sexual freedom or about sexual health? Have medical professional groups been hijacked by the left's idealogy which foists a strategy of 'risk reduction' versus 'risk avoidance' ?
Charles A. 'Chuck' Donovan President Charlotte Lozier Institute
Wide ranging and insightful discussion with forty plus year veteran who leads pro-life research and policy analysis think tank.

Josh Craddock Vice President Personhood USA
Does human dignity, like human life, start at conception? 'Personhood' is gaining traction as a social movement at the grassroots level. It's the fastest growing pro-life group at 1.5 million signatures? What very expensive, scare tactics have pro-aborts employed at the ballot box thus far to suppress and defeat statewide Personhood amendments? Can Personhood initiatives and legislation be used at the county and local level too?
Caroline Craddock National Director USA CitizenGO.org
CitizenGO is an online petition platform that values life, family and freedom. It has grown to 3 million petitioners in just a few years.
