Third Party Reproduction vs. Adoption

ChelseaAdoption, IVF, Reproductive TechnologyLeave a Comment

When I re-posted this graphic from the Center for Bioethics and Culture (using data from this study) on Facebook someone objected to it, concerned that something like that might be harmful to her adopted son if he ever came across it. Causing him to feel shame since his parents had to pay money, as well. I understand her concern, especially … Read More

ChelseaAdoption, video2 Comments

Alright, this is a nice contrast to the freaking weird story I posted earlier about a virgin who is the father of 14 children via sperm donation. Katie Davis is the mother of 14 Ugandan orphans…and she’s only 23! After high school, Katie left home to do a year long mission trip to Uganda before college. Now she lives there … Read More

Dear readers, please head over to CatholicLane and read my good friend Bill Donaghy’s touching account of how he and his wife Rebecca adopted their daughter Clare, whose mother almost aborted her: Every parent should consider their child a gift and a miracle, because every human life is an unrepeatable, absolutely incredible, physical manifestation of God’s image and His love … Read More

I’m loving this piece at the Washington Times from last month on Abortion, Adoption, and Steve Jobs. Author John Paul Cassil uses Jobs’ own words from a 2005 Stanford University commencement address describing his humble beginnings: “It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for … Read More

You know how pro-aborts love to tell pro-lifers that, if we’re soooo “pro-life”, we should offer to adopt so-called “unwanted” babies who would otherwise be aborted?
