In this interview, Abby talks more specifically about how Planned Parenthood is funded and what it would mean for them if they lost federal funding. She also talks about [...]
Just yesterday, I said I was going to read Abby Johnson’s Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader’s Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Lineand that I looked forward to how it would inspire me. It has done much more than that. Much more. In the note from the publisher, Fr. [...]
There are so many issues in our country and in the world. They are all related and of course all of society’s ills can be blamed on our fallen nature. Still, the one issue that I will never accept or ‘get over’ is abortion. Yes there are so many other injustices against human life but this one, [...]

A hot topic I’ve wanted to write about for a while but keep pushing aside for who knows why. It’s a HUGE issue and one that could never be fully discussed or encapsulated in one blog post. Monica touched on it here. For today, I will invite you to read Catholic Exchange’s “The Practice of [...]
Whether the stem cells were aborted specifically for the purpose of science, or they were just “happened upon” conveniently, the ends do not justify the means, and two wrongs certainly can never make a right. So whilst some may argue there have been amazing medical advances, treatments and drugs derived from these cell lines, I will argue back, “how can we claim such good has come from such horrific evil.” It just cannot be so.
If you’ve been reading my posts and thought process on homosexuality you’ve probably noticed that I have been struggling with how to approach this subject in a loving yet firm manner. I have tended to generalize the homosexual in my discussions and realize, (much in part through the article below and in the comments and discussions that stemmed [...]
