In case you missed it over at CMR. This is so delightful. And I need something delightful after reading yet another depressing reminder of the culture of death we are living in – collecting my thoughts for a post/article to (hopefully) come soon. In the meantime, please enjoy: Also, in further commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the sinking of … Read More
Almost 20 Years Later TLC’s “Chilli” Still Regrets Her Abortion
This is heartbreaking h/t The Crescat: “I would break down and I would just cry…because I wasn’t a mommy. I cried almost every day for almost nine years.” It is absolutely insane to compare abortion, as many do, to other medical procedures, even major ones. By and large, people don’t tend to cry every day for years regretting their decision … Read More
Why You Didn’t Die at Birth
Smarter Every Day is one of my favorite channels on YouTube right now. In his latest video Destin explores how human beings go from breathing fluid inside the mother’s womb to breathing air after birth: The design and construction of human life is so awesomely perfect. Too perfect to just happen by chance! Which is why no one is an … Read More
IVF: How Old is Too Old?
Using her partner’s sperm and a donor egg, Susan Tollefsen became Britain’s oldest first-time mother when she gave birth at the age of 57 and sparked an ethical fire-storm. Now, 61 and separated from her partner, she says there should be an age limit for IVF treatment for women in the UK. Last November she told the UK Daily Mail: … Read More
Wow! Young Woman is Adoptive Mother of 14 Ugandan Orphans!

Immature Adult Stem Cells Key to “Fountain of Youth”?
I’m not sure if this is really something to celebrate. I’m not a big fan of the whole “fountain of youth” quest for immortality. I don’t even like the idea of all those beauty serums and creams that claim to “reverse the signs of aging.” I would rather see scientists and medical professionals focus on combating actual sicknesses and diseases, … Read More

Stephen Colbert on Embryonic Stem Cell Research
Today Marc Barns posted his favorite Colbert Catholic moments. This made me think of one of my personal favorite Colbert moments: his 2006 interview with bioethicist Lee Silver. Silver says plenty of stupid things during the whole interview, but the stupidest is when he tells Colbert that the cells on his arm are human life in the same way that … Read More
Lol. Love this. Nothing says Christmas quite like Queen…or an epic Queen parody, at least! h/t to my Facebook friend Allison!
The Search for God Cannot Wait
On this day 10 years ago, my favorite musician, Mr. George Harrison, lost his battle with throat cancer and the “Quiet Beatle” was silenced forever in this world. Harrison was always considered the most spiritual of all the Beatles and, in a statement released by his family on the occasion of his death in 2001, he was credited as often … Read More
