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 […]

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.

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?
