sad-man

... Once I saw a bumper sticker, “Having an abortion doesn’t make you un-pregnant. It makes you the mother of a dead baby.” The same could be said for a father whose child has been aborted.Little attention is given to men when the topic of abortion is raised.

Many people are involved - a child yet born, future and/or existing siblings, gran … [Read more...]

... I am fortunate enough to live within reasonable driving distance to the Washington DC area, which gives me the geographical advantage of being able to attend the March for Life. Ok, so I've only been to one march; and what an experience it was. Unfortunately, this year the day job, yes I have a real job (two, in fact), prevents me from making it. That doesn't mean I can't be there in spirit. In fact, anyone who can't make the trip, either because of distance or time, can spiritually join the … [Read more...]

I was standing alone in a sterile room wearing a hospital gown. In my hand was the sheet that I had pulled back off the portable suction machine that sat in the corner. … [Read more...]
