Music for Your Monday: Beatles Epicosity

ChelseaMusic, Pro Life, video4 Comments

Oh, internet, you’re such a wonderful thing sometimes. This mashup/medley makes my Beatles loving heart do a hap-hap-happy dance (watch the annotations to see which parts of each song are playing at the same time): Also love this. I never thought that my favorite song of all time could be improved on, but in this video, George Martin and Dahni … Read More

Two Great Saints

ChelseaPro Life1 Comment

Today is the feast of two of my very favorite saints. First, St. Gianna Molla, who sacrificed her own life to give birth to her forth child, Gianna Emanuela. Today also marks the 50th anniversary of her death. Her example of total self giving and abandonment to Divine Providence as well as the great love between her and her husband … Read More

Why Would Pro-Life People Oppose IVF?

ChelseaIVF, Reproductive Technology0 Comments

People can be confused by the objection of the pro-life movement, and the Catholic Church, to IVF. Isn’t the whole point that we want people to have babies? Actually no. What we want is for the laws to treat babies like people. From Hilary White’s must-read article on how control over human fertility over the years has lead to the … Read More

ChelseaReproductive Technology, Surrogacy0 Comments

This ABC News story reports on the increasing number of military wives who are turning to surrogacy as a way of supplementing their husbands’ salaries – sometimes even doubling them with just one pregnancy. The story is from 2010, but I can’t imagine things have changed a whole lot since then (and if they have, they’ve probably only gotten worse). … Read More

ChelseaEgg Harvesting, Family, Infertility, IVF, Reproductive Technology, Sperm Donation1 Comment

The Tablet has an excellent article from Simi Lampert who explains why donating her eggs seemed like an easy way to make money — until she thought about her family and the fact that she was not only selling her eggs, but also, potentially, her biological children. She begins: I decided to sell my eggs. The notion got into my … Read More

Dick Clark, Requiescat in Pace

ChelseaDisabled1 Comment

Sad to hear about the passing of Dick Clark today at the tender age of 82. I really think Dick the world a favor when he returned to his post as the host of Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve after a devastating stroke. Why? Responding to critics of his “cringe-worthy” return who said that he should have “gracefully (left) the stage” … Read More
