September 27 2016 – Pediatrics support for LARC (Long Acting Reversible Contraception)–A Catholic Legal and Pastoral Response

Our Guest last week was Dr/Sr Hanna Klaus, MD, who developed the Teen STAR curriculum for Adolescent and Young Adult Sexuality. The Teen STAR Program is widely used with great success throughout the world, though not so much in the USA. Today’s program brings another great Guest to address the problem of pediatrician support for sterilizing adolescent girls with LARCs–IUD, implants and shots.

John Fitzgerald is a retired medical malpractice attorney who started the Saint Augustine Foundation in Yonkers NY to promote the teachings of the Catholic Church. The Spring 2016 National Catholic Bioethics Quarterly includes his article, “Long Acting Contraceptives for Adolescents” in which he analyzes and challenges the American Academy of Pediatrics 2014 policy supporting LARCs for children.

On today’s “The Quest for a Culture of Life in America” John will review the AAP policy, the problems it presents for parents, physicians and society, and propose a response that involves the several Catholic entities under the auspices of the dioceses.

September 20 2016 – Sr/Dr Hanna Klaus–Contrasting Approaches to Adolescent Sexuality

Dr Hanna Klaus, MD, is director of the Natural Family Planning Center of Washington DC; co-founder and director of the Teen STAR Program, USA; and a Medical Mission Sister who practiced as an Ob/Gyn for many years in Pakistan. Today she brings her adolescent sexuality research and Teen STAR teaching experience to “The Quest for a Culture of Life in America” offering a clear alternative to the secular medical culture that eschews morality, chastity, and abstinence in favor of birth control for young people.

The results are disastrous for their current and future lives–psychologically, socially, physically and spiritually! Dr Hanna will describe the superior alternative to this culture of death fostered hedonism–the way, the truth and the life offered by Jesus through His Bride–our Church.

September 13 2016 – The Ethics of Starting & Ending Life

We were all made in the image and likeness of God. How awesome is that? Does that mean that we may take on God’s authority and responsibility for LIFE’s start and end? I don’t think so! The Bride of Christ doesn’t think so! The National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) President Dr John Haas, PhD, STL, doesn’t think so. WHY?

Tune in to “The Quest for a Culture of Life in America” at Noon ET today, Tuesday the 13th, to learn what ethical principles are the foundation for the Churches objections to many practices common to our culture of death in America. Dr Haas has lectured in venues of every variety all over the world. He will cite some of the hundreds of ethical quandaries that the NCBC tackles every day as ethical consultants to bishops, physicians, hospitals, priests and families. This is fascinating and cutting-edge hard work that is critical to our Church, country, families and human dignity, especially for those who are vulnerable and at the ends of life’s spectrum.
