The op-ed that I sent to the newspapers in Missouri didn’t get picked up, as I expected. So, I went with just a letter to the editor. I am actually very sorry to admit that this is the first letter to the editor I have written about the amendment – or ever for that matter – and the election is … Read More

Most of you have probably heard about the campaign ad that Michael J. Fox did for politicians recently. He doesn’t say whether or not he stopped taking his medication before doing the commercial, however, in 1999, at a Senate subcommittee in Washington, he made a “deliberate choice to appear before the subcommittee without medication”, according to his book, Lucky Man. … Read More

Deception, Daughters, Dollars

These are the 3 D’s of Amendment 2. The first one is self explanitory and has been the primary focus of those opposed to the Amendment. The amendment language redefines the term cloning in order to get away with claiming to ban the procedure.

Alright, so I think I am one of the last Catholic bloggers to blog this sticker. My mother thinks it should say, “You can’t be Catholic and pro Claire.” It disturbs me greatly that any Catholic could be endorsed by Pro-Choice America, or even think that abortion should be, “safe, legal and rare.” Claire recently used her Catholic faith to … Read More

The Supreme Court opens today, but will be delayed due to a few of the Justices observing Yom Kippur. One of the items on their agenda this session will be determining whether the Partial Birth Abortion Ban of 2003 is constitutional or not. I found this cute little prayer in church a few weeks ago from the Angels for Life: … Read More

We have been blessed here in Missouri to have Archbishop Raymond Burke as the head of the St. Louis Archdiocese. Many of you will remember that in 2004 he was very outspoken against pro-choice Catholic politicians. Now he is an outpoken critic of Amendment 2.
