Abortion Pill Reversal: Stopping a Medical Abortion: In a clear, concise and easily understood manner, Dr. Delgado will explain what medical abortion is, how mifepristone (RU-486) works and how we now have the ability, thanks to the research he has spearheaded, to reverse the effects of mifepristone and stop the medical abortion procedure. This pro-life breakthrough is sure to fascinate your audiences and get everyone motivated to do more to protect vulnerable mothers and their preborn babies.
Being There for the Abortion Vulnerable: Dr. Delgado draws on his many years in the pro-life movement to give insights on how to be there for and connect with the abortion vulnerable woman. He will emphasize that all conversions of heart take place in the context of relationships.
Conversion of a Cafeteria Catholic: Dr. Delgado presents his story of conversion from picking and choosing what to follow of the Church’s teachings to being totally committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Humanae vitae played a pivotal role in his conversion.
Humanae Vitae and the Beautiful Truths of Christian Sexual Morality: Dr. Delgado explains the beautiful teachings of the Church and how they can liberate our culture of pleasure and death.
The Abortion Breast Cancer Connection: Dr. Delgado will explore and explain in plain terms the connection between past induced abortions and future risk of breast cancer.
Contraception: Deception and Risks: Dr. Delgado will explore the subtle and not so subtle deceptions inherent to contraception. Additionally, he will review the risks posed by contraception; risks that are ignored or underemphasized by medical practitioners.
Update on Physician-Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia in the United States: What is the threat to you or loved ones when you are elderly, frail or ill? Which states allow physician-assisted suicide? What is good palliative care and hospice? Dr. Delgado will answer these questions and many more.
Cloning and In Vitro Fertilization: the Other Side of the Contraception Coin: How are in vitro fertilization and contraception similar? Dr. Delgado will explore how both involve man and woman striving to become masters of their reproduction instead of honoring the stewardship roles given by God. Both in vitro fertilization and contraception attempt to separate the unitive aspect of the marital embrace form the procreative aspect.
How to Approach Health Care Decisions From a Christian Perspective: Do you ever wonder how you would react or choose if you were suddenly placed in a pro-life dilemma either at the beginning or end of life? Dr. Delgado will give you a framework so that you are not caught off guard. You will not need to be an ethicist to make good ethical decisions.
Ethical Principles and the Principle of Double Effect Made Easy and Enjoyable: Dr. Delgado will walk you through the ethical principles including autonomy (choosing what you want for yourself) and beneficence (doing the what’s best for yourself and others). Also, he will review the Principal of Double Effect and its correct application in cases like tubal pregnancies and stopping burdensome medical care.
Pro-LIfe Open Forum: Dr. Delgado will answer all the audiences questions and present mini-discussions of topics that present themselves in the course of the session. This is based on the format of Catholic Answers Radio’s Pro-LIfe Open Forum, where he is a regular, frequent guest.
