Pray for us, St. Gianna Beretta Molla

God quickly blessed the couple with three children in three years. But complications arose when Gianna became pregnant with their fourth child in 1961. She was diagnosed with a fibroma in her uterus.  Doctors pretty much told her that an abortion was the only way to save her life.

The Tactic of Deceit

A Pro-Life appeal to Democrats

Do you tend to vote Democrat? Are you a little uncomfortable with your party leadership that is rigid on their call for abortion-on-demand for the entire nine months of a mother’s pregnancy? But, are you reluctant to call yourself a pro-life Democrat?

History is being forged before your very eyes.

Iowa is once again leading the New Wave Movement of the 21st century with a social justice creed that emphasis LIFE with the passage of the Heartbeat Bill.

Last night, we witnessed high drama at the State House as the Heartbeat Bill was debated. The bill protects life of the pre-born when a heartbeat is detected. This occurs around the 6th week after fertilization.

The March for Life is really a ‘march for love’

That is why today’s March for Life is such a monumental event. For the 44th year in a row, hundreds of thousands of people come together in an act of love, a march for Love, so to speak.

How to defeat the culture of death: education

Many people don’t understand what is at stake, especially when they’re told that the unique, one-of-a-kind person in the womb, you know, the one who might figure out how to cure cancer some day, is merely a clump of cells.

We can stop this brain drain and this relentless erosion of human dignity by redoubling our efforts to teach.
