People in Haiti desperately need our prayers

The earthquakes in Haiti were terrible.

Many people are now homeless, starving, and in need of clean water and medical attention.

The people in Haiti desperately need our prayers.

Please pray for them because they are God’s children.

Newspaper must step up its efforts in pro-life matters

A fact of Catholic life is that we profess to be pro-life. Yet The Criterion seems to be not so aggressive in pro-life matters; I would say comparable to the popular media.

An example: In the Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers and Prevention journal, the Seattle-based Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center published a research paper confirming a strong connection between the use of oral contraceptives and a particularly aggressive form of breast cancer.

I wonder why The Criterion has not promulgated this information to protect women’s health.

There is so much evidence of a link between breast cancer, abortion and contraceptives that The Criterion could print a news article each week and not run short of material.

The newspaper’s coverage of the March for Life was commendable. But the real news is that Catholics should not support fundraising businesses like the National Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure or any others who do not publish the link between abortion and breast cancer or the link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer.

How can they claim to serve women’s health when it comes to cancer when they neglect the most obvious cause?
