(Vatican Radio)  In Britain, the pro-life group, CORE, said the decision to allow the editing of the genes of human embryos for research purposes is morally wrong and its implications are “frightening beyond belief.” The British Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority announced this week that it had approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute in London to use new “gene editing” techniques on human embryos.  The project aims to provide a deeper understanding of the earliest moments of human life.  However critics describe the plan as the first step on a path towards the legalization of genetically modified babies. Josephine Quintavalle is the Director of CORE, an organization that focuses on the ethical dilemmas surrounding human reproduction and she spoke to Susy Hodges.Listen to the interview with Josephine Quintavalle of CORE:   As a pro-life organization, Quintavalle said CORE is opposed to any destructive re...
(Vatican Radio) As policy-makers, politicians and analysts debate questions such as border closures, taxation for refugees and ‘search and rescue’ missions, hundreds of thousands of refugees and forced migrants – men, women and children – struggle to find footing and dignity in whichever their place of arrival.The Jesuit Refugee Service firmly believes that education is the key to a secure and sustainable future for refugees and their communities.That’s why the JRS “Mercy in Motion” campaign contributes to long-term solutions for refugees, ensuring that displaced generations are equipped to rebuild their lives and communities - either in the country of asylum or upon their return home.Pope Francis himself has expressed his support for the ‘Mercy in Motion’ campaign which also represents JRS’s concrete commitment to the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.   Father James Martin SJ, best known perhaps for his priz...

 WASHINGTON-Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York called on everyone "concerned about the tragedy of abortion" to recommit to a "vision of life and love, a vision that excludes no one" on January 14. His statement marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Cardinal Dolan chairs the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops."Most Americans oppose a policy allowing legal abortion for virtually any reason - though many still do not realize that this is what the Supreme Court gave us," wrote Cardinal Dolan. "Most want to protect unborn children at later stages of pregnancy, to regulate or limit the practice of abortion, and to stop the use of taxpayer dollars for the destruction of unborn children. Yet many who support important goals of the pro-life movement do not identify as 'pro-life,' a fact which should lead us to examine how we present our pro-life vision to others.""Even as Americans rema...
