Here's a Facebook/Twitter image for all those who are demanding that our federal government stop funding Planned Parenthood. Over the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood has received more than $4 billion in state and federal government aid. As a nation, we are helping fund an organization trafficking in the sale of human body parts. $4 billion dollars in taxpayer money is going to one of the most gruesome human rights violations of our day... it's got to st … [Read more...]

The truth about pie pans and Planned Parenthood

Pie preparing

  "There's a little white tray with pie dishes on it. And I'm like... hmmm... and I see someone come in with a bottle of something, and there's blood in it, and I'm like... ok... and they emptied it out in a strainer, in the pie dish." - Ex-Procurement Technician Ask me to pick one symbol of maternity—of tenderness, coddling, nurture, and motherly love—and I would probably pick a pie pan.

The chapter that hit close to home with me—and I’m not entirely comfortable admitting this—is the f … [Read more...]

“Did you hear that children my age probably died in that tornado today, Daddy?”Those were the first words out of my eight-year-old daughter’s mouth when I got home from work last night.I can’t imagine what it must be like to grow up in a day so filled with tragedy AND instant media coverage.
