Thoughts

“I said to the almond tree, sister speak to me about God; and the almond tree blossomed. ”

This quote resonates with me so much because it reflects the abundant nature of life that God offers his beloved. I believe that all human life is beautiful and precious, beginning with the weakest and smallest among us. The threat against human life is more than a threat against the unborn and ill, but against all of humanity. I am excited to contribute to C-fam and have a place to fervently proclaim and explore the sacredness of human life. My dream is that one day society will overcome their lack of appreciation and understanding for human life and see in retrospect the great genocide that has been committed against the weakest among us. Aside from the pro-life movement,  I am also an avid proponent of religious freedom, and am excited to write about pressing pertinent issues.

Capitalizing off of “Unwanted Humans:” Embryo Jewelry

You can now put your “extra” embryos in jewelry and carry them around with you. A new company recently announced that they are making jewelry with human embryos. This sounds like a piece of satire, and I wish that it was. The sad and sick reality is that the Australian company called BabyBee Hummingbirds, which […]

First Communion: So much more than an Opportunity to Play Dress Up   What is the meaning of a First Communion?

Pro-life in Pop Culture: Ed Sheeran’s “Small Bump”

Losing a child through a miscarriage has to be one of the most painful experiences a person could possibly have to endure.

Teen Vogue: Making Abortion Appear Glamorous

In the most abhorrent and distasteful way possible, Teen Vogue just proved for good that they do not understand teen girls. Their Post- Abortion Gift Guide, in which they recommend several gifts that a concerned friend can get for a girlfriend who just got an abortion is both contradictory and offensive; it trivializes abortion and […]

In short, I think it’s safe to say that I’m living the millennial’s dream. On my travels, I’ve racked up frequent flyer miles, learned foreign languages, and made irreplaceable […]

The Pro-Life Feminists who Braved the Women’s March Anyway

The Women’s March has made one thing very clear, that conservative women are not invited to join their cause of equality for women. Shortly before the march, organizers removed pro-life organizations from the list of partner organizations.   As one pro-life feminist notes, “ The Women’s March organizers espouse a specific type of diversity.” Despite […]
