Fr. Tad Pacholczyk answers:

What is the justification for using natural law as the basis for our Catholic bioethics?

What can I do to ensure that any vaccination my child receives does not include aborted fetal material?

What are the ethics surrounding placenta encapsulation?

Shouldn’t we call them “birth control pills” instead of “contraception,” since they don’t prevent conception?

If my son works in a store where condoms are sold, is he directly involved in material cooperation?

I heard that some food companies were using aborted fetal cells for sweeteners -- is this still going on?

Shouldn’t we be referring to abortifacient “medications” as “poisons?”

Does the HHS mandate affect individual Catholics or families who need to enroll in their own insurance policies?
