Planned Parenthood

A Catholic Response to the Planned Parenthood Videos

“Let not your heart be disturbed… Am I not here, who is your Mother? Are you not under my protection? Am I not your health? Are you not happily within my fold? What else do you wish? Do not grieve nor be disturbed by anything.” (Our Lady of Guadalupe to Juan Diego) I felt physically sick this morning watching the […]

Difficulties with Defending Life

Forget parachuting or haunted houses for chills.  If you want scary, try walking into a pro-choice demonstration and saying a few “Our Fathers.”  Last spring, some friends and I crashed a rally advocating for the right to abort babies. I wrote an article about it, “Crashing an Abortion Rally,” and received some nasty comments.  But that was nothing compared to […]

Disposable People

Father and Son

At first I thought it was the article about the Canadian mother who received a letter from a neighbor suggesting she should euthanize her autistic son which prompted me to write today’s blog.  Maybe it was my recent discovery that 92% of babies determined to have Down’s Syndrome are aborted by their parents.  It could have been the alarming lack […]

Asking Tough Questions in the Wake of Tragedy

There is no shortage of disturbing images in the trial of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell.  The grand jury report is not for the faint of heart.  And while I ardently disagree with the decision by most news organizations to – at least initially – not cover the trial, I can still understand why they wouldn’t want to talk about the […]

The Komen Alternative

One of the most frequently asked questions I receive from my radio listeners has to do with alternatives to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Active Catholics are slowly beginning to understand that there is a connection between Komen and the nation’s largest abortion provider; Planned Parenthood. That said, outside of Catholic media and a very few select health related web sites, […]

Count It All Joy

The first Scripture verse that came to mind when I viewed the shocking video produced by NARAL-Pro Choice New York, a video that attacks the stellar reputation of pregnancy resource centers, was Isaiah 5:20: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet […]

Wind-Up Toy Soldiers

I’m sitting at home sick on a Saturday night. On one hand it’s a nice break, but on the other hand I’m sitting here contemplating my newfound free time and my to-do list. From the mundane achievable: must clean ALL the things; to the more ambitious: must learn French; to the more … lofty shall we say: I’m not doing […]

A Marketing Scheme to Die For

Supply and demand; it fuels our economic engine and determines prices.  When demand is greater than the supply, prices go up.  When the supply is greater than demand, prices go down.  But at International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), there is a different twist to this equation. Planned Parenthood has become a billion dollar industry by supplying birth control and a […]

Rethinking Pink and Racing for the Truth

You’ve probably seen or heard the ads promoting Susan G. Komen 3 Day “Race for the Cure”.  You know the ones to which I’m referring; the well produced commercials that feature women of all ages in their pink athletic gear holding up pictures of their Mom, their aunt, their sister, or their friend who struggled with and maybe even lost […]
