Avoiding The Truth In The Abortion Debate

This title is not so much in reference to direct dishonesty, but more an observation of avoiding, or better yet, not seeking the truth. President Obama’s track record During his first campaign, he made the infamous promise to Planned Parenthood that if elected, the first thing he would do would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act […]

Something’s Got To Give: Sexual Freedom As A National Security Concern

After looking at modern American culture, I most likely won’t stay in the military any longer than my current contract requires.  There are far greater conflicts at hand than those in Iraq and Afghanistan (and depending on how things go, possibly Syria, Pakistan, North Korea, or Iran).  Though often cited as the most trusted institution […]

Staring Into History: Finding the Beauty of Catholic Teachings in The Stars

In my fifth grade science class, we learned about “light pollution.”  It didn’t make sense until seven years later when I left for college.  I visited home one weekend and went to a friend’s house and finally understood the “light pollution” that my science teacher had talked about years earlier.  I’d become so used to […]

The Psychological Effect of “Her Body, Her Choice”

Something I’ve wondered about, especially with the recent conviction of Kermit Gosnell, is how Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and other pro-choice advocacy groups claim themselves as the guardians of women’s health, yet work to silence women who have been hurt by the procedures and speak out.  How can they claim these positions even with well-documented cases of the facilities’ foul […]

The (Fake) War On Women: Taking Cecile Richards To Task

In March, Cecile Richards told the Huffington Post that there are some states where “it’s not safe to be a woman”, citing laws recently passed in North Dakota.  “It’s almost like the November elections didn’t happen”, she claimed. I said in my previous post that Planned Parenthood is unique because their business drives the need.  For other businesses, the reverse […]

Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood Do NOT Have A Say

“The Soldier above all others prays for peace, for it is the Soldier who must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war” – General Douglas MacArthur After the Obama Administration issued the unconstitutional and unjust HHS mandate forcing all employers to cover and provide contraception, sterilization, and abortion-inducing drugs in employee health plans, five […]

Why I Am Pro-Life: My Mothers’ Day Gift

With today being Mothers’ Day, I think it’s only appropriate that I thank my mother by offering insight as to why I am so firmly pro-life.  I’ve been a Catholic my whole life and have always accepted the Church’s teachings on abortion, but it’s only within the last few years that I really understood how […]

Abortion: Why Pro-Life Men Have a Say

On Good Friday this year, I travelled to Columbia, Missouri to participate in a living Stations of the Cross outside the local Planned Parenthood and attend sidewalk counselors’ training shortly thereafter.  Except for a 12-year-old boy who was with his mother, I was the only male there.  After giving my introduction, the lady running the […]

Genderless Marriage and Arguments from Emotion

Maybe I’m just a sucker for a good analogy, but this piece by Doug Mainwaring really did a great job, in my opinion, of summing up the totality of the public discourse over the possibility of same-sex marriage.  He begins: In our sometimes misguided efforts to expand our freedom, selfish adults have systematically dismantled that […]

Contraception: An Equal or Greater Evil than Abortion?

  Many people argue that abortion is the greatest evil in our society.  I take a slightly different view.  I believe that contraception is an equal, if not even greater, evil than abortion is.  I say this because of all that has been unleashed since the pill was introduced in 1961 and legalized in 1965, everything from […]
