Richardson, 21, of Joplin, Mo., was making her first solo jump in Siloam Springs, Ark., on Oct. 9 when her main parachute failed and her reserve chute didn’t fully deploy. What? WHAT!?!?!? She was pregnant and she went up [...]

Do you need more technology to help with NFP? I know some of you know what “NFP” means. It’s a Catholic thing I know. I could go into a lengthy explanation of why artificial contraception is wrong, but that’s for another post. This post is to introduce a new gadget that could help with NFP. [...]
I really have mixed feelings on this. SAN QUENTIN, Calif. – Convicted killer Stanley Tookie Williams, the Crips gang co-founder whose case stirred a national debate about capital punishment versus the possibility of redemption, was executed Tuesday morning. On the one had, I really don’t understand why in a country with our wealth and resources [...]
“In a newly released 1985 job application, Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito says the Constitution does not protect abortion rights, and he expresses a conservative fervor on many social issues. ADVERTISEMENT The document, released Monday by the National Archives, provoked concerns from Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Arlen Specter, an abortion rights supporter, and others. Specter [...]
This comment was left on my Rosa Parks post. I think we should speculate on what the world would be like if history was a bit different, and we had laws forcing Rosa Parks’ mother to abort all her black babies. I am not saying that I think all Black babies should be aborted. That [...]
I just found out about this over at Jimmy Akin’s place. The mother of a Loretto High School student obtained photographs that exposed a drama teacher as a former Planned Parenthood volunteer, a revelation that led to the teacher’s firing last week. It wasn’t the first time Wynette Sills raised her anti-abortion views on the [...]
Hola Padre Salinas! I hope you are reading this. I am sorry I could not approve your comment to my blog, as it was a little off topic. However, I feel it’s import for people to know what you have to say about the current political state of the government of Spain. I have therefore [...]

I’ll have to again invoke my “No foul language” rule and pretty much just post the link here. Let’s just say that Marc’s not real happy about this. Read the story here. UPDATE: the Curt Jester has a very good post here with some words from Cardinal William H. Keeler and some excellent comments.
Hat tip to Catholic Light for this one. Too bad there’s no justice in Florida.
I never thought I would say this, but three cheers for Rev. Jackson…….
I got this in my email yesterday…… It’s just a bunch of words, but it really makes you think about current events. Here’s a riddle for you: If it happens to a dog, it’s cruelty. If it happens to a child, it’s abuse. If it happens to a prison inmate, it’s cruel and unusual punishment. [...]
OK…..Here we go. As if it wasn’t bad enough that the news wires persistently call this a “right-to-die” case, these “journalists” are obviously promoting their own agenda by continuing to distort the truth. It’s no wonder so many people are against saving Terri’s life when they are getting fed crap like this: Schiavo’s husband, Michael [...]
That’s the slogan of Judge Greer. On his order, Terri’s feeding tube has been removed and she will slowly starve to death, which is one of the cruelest most inhumane ways to kill someone. Yet Judge Greer has ordered it be done to Terri even though she has not been convicted of any crime. How [...]
In a win for the cause of life, a judge in Cook county Illinois has ruled that a frozen embryo is a living person and that the parents of that embryo have a right to sue if the child is accidentally killed. Take a look at the story here.
Like Saint Gianna Beretta Molla in the last century, We have Rita Fedrizzi in this century. She was diagnosed with cancer about the same time she became pregnant. She refused treatment for her cancer because it would mean ending the pregnancy and therefore killing the child. Let’s all honor her and her decision to save [...]
I just read this article over at San Diego News Notes. I’m always speechless when I hear stories about the horrors that go on in these places. This one is especially gripping because the woman talks constantly about how she wants to get away.
