It’s That Time of Year

Tue, 02 May 2017 15:21:13 +0000

Every year around this time, we receive numerous messages from high school and college students across the country who are seeking information on abortion for research papers they’re working on. We expect this number to continue to grow over the next few weeks—a peak time for term papers. When we receive messages like these, we […]

A group of students at Immaculate Heart of Mary School in Still River, Massachusetts have just come out with the best video you’ll see today: Joseph Duffy, president of IMH’s St. John the Baptist Pro-Life League, explains the purpose of the Prayer Vigil Challenge: “Our aim is simple: to close down the killing center of […]

Four Reasons Why the AAP Is Wrong to Push IUDs, Implants for Teen Girls

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 20:48:56 +0000

Eric Scheidler and his six daughters in 2007 Yesterday the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a new recommendation [PDF] that physicians promote the progestin implant and the intrauterine device (IUD) for teen girls. As the father of six girls—including three teenagers—I find this new recommendation particularly disturbing. It’s not just that I bristle at the […]

The Courage to Suffer

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:06:40 +0000

In high school, I did half of my coursework at home through a Catholic home school program. As a freshman, I wrote an essay on why Catholics should pray a daily Rosary. Looking back, I’m not sure why I chose to defend such a strong position since I did not yet pray a daily Rosary […]

I Win, You Lose

Tue, 24 Jun 2014 16:48:12 +0000

“To be” means “to be in competition” – thus C.S. Lewis articulates the philosophy of hell in one of my favorite books of all time, The Screwtape Letters. Writing from the perspective of senior devil Screwtape addressing his amateur nephew Wormwood, Lewis explains, “My good is my good and your good is yours. What one […]

“Why Can’t I Be Happy?”

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 14:25:44 +0000

Last month, I was at Chicago’s Navy Pier with the Pro-Life Action League to protest Planned Parenthood’s Generations Gala. With over 50 million children aborted in our country since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 and Planned Parenthood currently performing 40 percent of those abortions, we stood as witness to the violence against women […]

Why Be Vulnerable?

Mon, 02 Jun 2014 14:25:02 +0000

In the realm of pro-life work, we often talk about the unborn child as the most vulnerable member of society. Indeed, with 21 percent of pregnancies ending in abortion, a person is more likely to die from abortion than from car accidents, homicide, and cancer combined. The baby in the womb is not the only […]

Missing the Mark

Tue, 27 May 2014 16:19:16 +0000

Yes, that small child on the blue trike is me as a toddler, and yes, I did miss the first time I tried to get on. But I tried again, mounted successfully, and continued on my way: What attitude do we have toward our setbacks? When we fail or miss the mark, do we get […]

Dear Future Mom…

Wed, 14 May 2014 16:23:55 +0000

A few months ago, I reflected on the artificial standards of perfection in our culture that influence 92 percent of women who receive a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome to abort their children. This video is a beautiful testimony to the fulfilling lives that people with Down syndrome are living. From A mom-to-be learned […]

Bring a Baby Item to This Saturday’s Monthly Protest outside Planned Parenthood in Aurora, Illinois

Tue, 13 May 2014 15:00:00 +0000

A few years ago, four brothers—all under age 10—raised hundreds of dollars for our parent organization, the Pro-Life Action League, by pooling all their Halloween candy and giving it away for donations. Now their big sister, 15-year old Jessica, has come up with her own creative way to support the pro-life cause. Jessica is throwing […]

“The Hardest Thing I’ve Ever Done”

Wed, 07 May 2014 14:05:37 +0000

When I was in grade school, my younger brothers always had less homework than I did. I would look back on the previous year’s homework load and think to myself, “Wow, last year was so easy compared to this year. Why didn’t I appreciate it more then?” Every time I turn a new page in […]

“Do Not Say, ‘I Am Too Young'”: Pro-Life Teens Making National News

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 18:40:21 +0000

When 16-year old Thrin Short joined Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust for a peaceful campus outreach at the University of California-Santa Barbara earlier this month, she didn’t expect to be assaulted—by a professor—after the professor incited two students to steal one of the group’s signs showing a photo of an abortion victim. But that’s exactly […]
