Is Abortion a State Issue?

ChelseaAbortion, Politics, Right to LifeLeave a Comment

A popular mantra regarding abortion, especially among the Right and especially during election time, has been the call to overturn Roe v. Wade and let the “states decide” abortion. Many rightly claim that Roe v. Wade is “bad law” and “unconstitutional”, but why? Because it took rights away from the states, or because, solely by allowing abortion, it violates the … Read More

Today is the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. She is the Protectress of the Unborn and the Mother of the Americas. Our Lady of Guadalupe, we turn to you who are the protectress of unborn children and ask that you intercede for us, so that we may more firmly resolve to join you in protecting all human life. Let … Read More

The Immaculate Conception

ChelseaAbortion, Prayer, Pro Life, Religion, Right to LifeLeave a Comment

As I was reflecting on today’s feast day, it struck me what a really pro-life feast we are actually celebrating today (and yes it is a Holy Day of Obligation in the U.S. even though it’s a Saturday since, as a country, we are consecrated to Mary as the Immaculate Conception). God did not choose to purify the womb that … Read More

Look on the Tears of Little Children

Chelsea2008 Election, Prayer, Right to Life1 Comment

Do unborn children have tears? I don’t know, but this will be my prayer for our country from now until election day. It comes from a passage I recently came across in the Diary of St. Faustina: Once after an adoration for our country, a pain pierced my soul, and I began to pray in this way: “Most merciful Jesus, … Read More

Thompson’s Powerful Pro-Life Endorsement

Chelsea2008 Election, Politics, Right to Life2 Comments

Thompson’s National Right to Life endorsement has been major news in the pro-life world this week, following other major endorsements (Robertson of Giuliani, Brownback of McCain). Today NRLC issued another statement on their endorsement after getting a chilly and sometimes hostile response from the pro-life community. One of the major criticisms is that Thompson does not support the Human Life … Read More

Respect Life/Life Chain Sunday

ChelseaPrayer, Right to Life1 Comment

I forgot to do a post yesterday about Respect Life Sunday. I wasn’t able to participate in any Life Chains. Come to think of it, I don’t think I heard of any being organized around my area. Maybe I will have to do something about that in the future. This is a picture of me at the Life Chain in … Read More

Preserving America’s Freedom

Chelsea2008 Election, Abortion, Right to Life1 Comment

For me, no cause more important than the right of every human being to have life. It is a universal human right which is endowed to us by our creator and ensured by our constitution, yet has been taken away in our country by a handful of Supreme Court justices and a successful campaign of rhetoric that parallels the rationalization … Read More

Schiavo Lesson Learned?

ChelseaEuthanasia, Right to LifeLeave a Comment

One would think, with recent stories about coma patients waking after almost 20 years, and Jesse Ramirez coming out of his “persistent vegetative state,” that many in the media would understand the connection to the Terri Schiavo case and the reality of what was done to her. But Bobby Schindler points out that the media has done no such thing: … Read More

Stick With Science

ChelseaPro Life, Religion, Right to Life1 Comment

This was a response to a comment on my Devil in Disguise post which began to take on a life of its own, so I though I’d rather put it into a post. One reader suggested: This is the key: stick with the science. Irrespective of religious differences and/or whether or not a supreme being exists, we know as a … Read More

The Infant Leaped in Her Womb!

ChelseaPrayer, Religion, Right to LifeLeave a Comment

Happy feast of the Visitation! This account of the Blessed Virgin visiting her cousin Elizabeth is is one of my favorites in scripture. I love it because the life of the unborn child is so clearly illustrated. During those days Mary set out and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah, where she entered the … Read More
