Gregory Lobo is a Junior at Seton Hall University working toward his B.A. in History. He believes that history is a key to creating a passionate pro-life movement, due to the ugliness of the historical context of abortion advocacy.
He was recently chosen to be the historian of the pro-life club in his college campus, Pirates For Life. Besides using words and history to defend the right to life, he enjoys playing video games and watching and reading about sports, especially hockey.

“If to be feelingly alive to the sufferings of my fellow-creatures is to be a fanatic, I am one of the most incurable fanatics ever permitted to be at large.”-William Wilberforce
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I was born with spina bifida, which was given in a prenatal diagnosis. When my parents went in for one of the scans after the diagnosis, the radiologist told them that “[They had] already diagnosed this, so why haven’t [my parents] taken care of it”? The idea that prenatal diagnosis is used to justify abortion is highly offensive to me. I believe that the reason that God made me the way that I am so that I could have this story and be so personally attached to the pro-life movement and to give me a unique position to speak out against the culture of death. As such, I feel a moral obligation to speak out against this culture, especially when it is in response to a prenatal diagnosis.
On Tuesday, in a stunning move–especially because both candidates for Conservative Party leadership, and thus, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom said they did not want it done–the parliament of the UK voted to legalize abortion in Northern Ireland. England has their abortion law, but since the Good Friday Agreement went into effect in […]
Recently, Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) ignited a firestorm when she described detention centers for illegal immigrants as “concentration camps.” This caused outrage from across the political spectrum, as well as from Jewish organizations. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) called the comments “ludicrous.” The implication was that the term “concentration camp” be retired because of the […]
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past week, you’ve heard about the new abortion law signed by Governor Kay Ivey of Alabama. The law, which was crafted as a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade, bans nearly all abortions. The only exception is if the mother’s life is at risk. Social media […]
Recently, one of the biggest and best pro-life bills in the country passed in Alabama. While the bill passed by a very strong margin, the debate was very forceful at times. The part of the debate that is making waves is a horrendous comment by Democratic Representative John Rogers. Rogers got up to the stage […]
One of the most interesting things about the history of the NHL is the Guardian Project, when the late comic book legend Stan Lee partnered with the NHL to create a superhero based on each team. A lot of people didn’t like the Guardian Project, but I did. The thing that makes the Guardian project […]
We knew this was coming, but it just happened today. Governor Phil Murphy signed the bill and assisted suicide is now legal in New Jersey. The legislation passed by a thin majority a few weeks ago, and Murphy had already said he would sign it, and now it’s official. New Jersey becomes the 8th state […]
Today, being World Down Syndrome Day, there was an event at CSW called “Social protection for Women, Girls, and all Those With Down Syndrome (In Commemoration of the International Down Syndrome Awareness Day)”. Obviously, a huge part of the issues facing people with Down Syndrome is the abortion rate in the case of a prenatal […]
On the 3rd day of CSW, I went to an event called “Gendering the Debate on Religious Hate Speech”. I went to that event, sat through it for over an hour, and still don’t know what it means to gender a debate on hate speech, or how one goes about that, which is telling. There […]
On the second day with C-Fam, my true love gave to me… wait, wrong thing. Anyway, for the second day, the most interesting event I went to was called “Protecting Femininity and Human Dignity in Women’s Empowerment and Gender Equality Policies Today”. There were a bunch of great speakers in that panel, but the best […]
My first day at CSW, I went to an event called “Empowering Girls and Women Facing Violence in Family Settings”. It focused on domestic abuse. The way it works at CSW is that it’s a panel discussion and each person in the panel does their presentation, and then there are questions at the end. For […]
