New Year’s resolution

We have repeatedly used this space to call upon readers to do more for pro-life. Re-establishing a pro-life culture, or merely bringing a little moral sanity back to our society, requires us to dream big dreams, to pray for renewal, and put faith into action. We cannot be quietly pro-life. The world must know we want to end abortion and euthanasia. When [...]

What do you say when no one listens?

A group of male pro-lifers arrived on the campus of Penn State University recently to dialogue with students about what is truly the most important moral issue of our time. The results were mixed.

Handling ‘heart issues’

I have no idea who originally said it, though American musician Frank Zappa is reputed to have elaborated on the idea by saying that “Life is like high school with money.” There was a time, very recently, when real [...]

Treat pro-lifers the way you would treat pro-choicers

Talk Turkey Josie Luetke I’ve felt quite embattled this past month – by the media’s persecution of the Covington Catholic kids, by some Americans’ embrace of third-trimester abortions and flirtation with infanticide, and by Ottawa City Councilor Shawn Menard’s open discrimination against pro-life citizen transit commissioner Michael Olsen. Most of all, I’ve felt embattled by internal divisions in the pro-life [...]
