New Pro-Life Web-Site for Teens Launched - GravityTeen.com, an online destination for teenagers, unveiled its Web site dedicated to building self-esteem and offering advice to Gen Y kids facing challenging problems. GravityTeen is based on the belief that increasing self-esteem and personal power in teenagers, through positive peer advice and real life stories, will cultivate the tools and strength needed for teens to make educated and well thought-out decisions.
Teens faced with peer pressure, pregnancy issues, or major, life-altering choices have turned to GravityTeen to gain advice and an extra boost of self-esteem. The enormous amount of daily responses from Teens offering their own personal stories and advice to the teen community is a testament to the power of the GravityTeen site.
GravityTeen is the latest in an increasing number of pro-life websites geared to young people, which have been creating a big splash. Gravity Teen.com is a project of Missouri-based Vitae/Caring Foundation.
Human cloning is not only wrong and unethical, it is dangerous and deadly, not only because hundreds of embryos die in the process, but because Dolly has shown us what happens to its victims. Progress is being made in stem cell research through the use of adult stem cells and stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood. There is no evidence to support the notion that human cloning would be beneficial in any way, but Dolly’s fate provides ample evidence that it should be banned outright.
On June 17, 2003, Ave Maria School of Law, in collaboration with Priests for Life, will host a symposium for attorneys and clergy entitled, The Church and Politics: Are We as Restricted as We Think?
The symposium, to be held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, will begin at 9:30 a.m. and will conclude at 3:30 p.m.. The papers presented there will be published in a user-friendly booklet to be made available, for educational purposes, to attorneys and churches across the nation.
Pastors can do a great deal to call their congregations to active and informed participation in the political process. In documents like Living the Gospel of Life (1998), the U.S. Catholic Bishops articulated such a call with clarity and passion. At the same time, many pastors of all denominations remain unaware of the extent to which they can speak and act in this arena, and often believe they are far more restricted than the law actually requires. The symposium is designed to give pastors a broader understanding of the law in this area, and assist them to fulfill their mission with greater confidence.
