Resist Narrow Media Narratives…Seriously

This week the pro-life movement rejoiced with the Senate vote in Argentina passing in favor of the pro-life movement, 38-31. However, when news of the vote entered the media scene, many articles immediately turned to the Catholic Church as the focus of the issue instead of the advocates themselves.

Why did I write to 167 Bishops of India?

I wrote to almost all the Bishops in India, including the office of the Nuncio. I had to write to all of them because there is just too much innocent blood flowing down the nation.

Save the Child by Loving the Mother: Practical Ways to Help

What do the pro-life and pro-choice movements have in common? Both claim to protect human rights. Yet the pro-choice movement neglects to recognize the humanity and right to life of unborn children in favor of the mother’s autonomy to make a choice.
