Hi there! So I’ve been taking a little bit of a blogging break, in case you haven’t noticed.

Loving Our Enemies

ChelseaPro Life1 Comment

A culture of life is a culture of love. That means loving everyone without exception – even our worst enemies. Yesterday’s Gospel reading: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of … Read More

The Pressure to Abort

During the last legislative session, the Missouri Senate failed to pass a bill would strengthen the informed consent process and make abortion clinics offer an ultrasound to all women seeking abortions. The part of the bill that caused the most problems for the Senate leadership, however, was the section dealing with coerced abortions. Under the proposed law it would be … Read More

Ignoring the biological facts of the case, they are treating this as some scientific miracle, the “world’s first pregnant man.” He’s not. … Read More

The Big Picture Behind Abortion

In an article for Fox News (pt. 1 of 2) John Lott looks at the consequences of the liberalizing of abortion rules in the late 60s and early 70s: With abortion seen as a backup, women as well as men became less careful in using contraceptives as well as more likely to have premarital sex.

According to a Griffith University study, published last Thursday in the journal Stem Cells, there is evidence that stem cells taken from a patient’s nose could produce dopamine-producing brain cells when transplanted into the brain. It has been a success in mice anyway. I find this study particularly interesting because just a few years ago human spinal cord injury patients … Read More
