ChelseaAbortion, Politics, Women3 Comments

I seriously wonder if pro-choice people ever really listen to themselves speak. On C-Span Thursday morning I caught Sen. Barbara Boxer arguing with Sen. Orin Hatch against an amendment to codify a rule the Bush Administration put in place adding the “unborn child” as a patient under SCHIP.

I found these short clips from the Theology of the Body for Teens series: TOB segement for guys: TOB segement for girls: The world today, which sees authentic masculinity and femininity as antiquated, sexist ideals, may look at these videos and think: Why the separate advice for guys and girls?

I am deeply concerned about this woman’s soul – especially as a fellow Catholic. St. (thanks, Paul!) Origen said: God opens the lips of those who utter divine words, and I fear that it is the devil who opens the other people’s. (In Ex hom., 3,2) Do we have to wonder who keeps opening Nancy Pelosi’s?

Reader (and now fellow blogger) Brian Gillin recently had an op-ed published in the Washington Times in which he thanks Pres. Bush for his help in advancing stem cell science – that’s right, advancing it: Thank you, President Bush, for not allowing science to be divorced from ethics.

Now more than ever our new president, officially sworn in yesterday, needs to be prayed for.
