The War of Art

A friend passed on this fantastic little book to me, The War of Art. It’s not just about overcoming procrastination, it’s about doing what truly makes you tick. Esquire calls it “A vital gem . . . a kick in the ass.” And don’t we all need both (gems, and a kick in the ass) […]

How to maximize profit with your spa abortion service

Carafem, the spa abortion experience is about profits. Not service, not women, not activism. Normalizing abortion for them isn’t about normalizing abortion. It’s about making money. Which they will make more of, if abortion is normalized. As Barbara Kay explains in her column: There may be a great deal of money to be made in […]

On age and ideas

Bad ideas are bad, good ideas are good whether young or old. Peter Stockland comments: Bad ideas in young heads are as bad as bad ideas in old heads. The issue is not the age at which those ideas enter our heads, but whether they become ideologically fixed and impervious to contradictory reason or experience. […]

Right down to the first detail

This made me laugh: MANSFIELD, OH—Having proposed that they spend a night out together, the boyfriend of local woman Cassandra Stephenson is said to have planned a magical evening for the two of them down to the very first detail, sources reported Tuesday. “We should do something on Friday,” said boyfriend Bryan Vogel, specifying the […]

Freedom of conscience

I just watched this little video from the Christian Medical Dental Society . We all have to get along in a diverse society, and forcing people to do things they don’t believe are right isn’t the way to go. Neither does conscientious objection always have to do with with religion. There have been longstanding feminist […]

Fern Hill. But not the Fern Hill who does the blogging, you'll note. This grassy knoll isn't so mean.

How do you spell hypocrisy?

Turns out it’s spelled “Fern Hill.” Fern Hill is a blogger. A bossy, brash blogger, who doesn’t like people like me and often singles me out, met with much gleeful sarcasm from her minions. I asked her for a coffee a while back, simply to see that we are both people (it was not an […]

Natural Family Planning is about women’s health

It’s not just about a woman’s fertility, but it also offers clues to how your body works, and possible problems. A fun little movie that teaches women what natural family planning really is so they won’t dismiss it as “the rhythm method.” And good news for all the sceptics: The creator of this film is […]

Promoting LARCs will target the poor

A discussion of possible pitfalls in promoting long acting reversible contraceptives in the USA: A recent experiment in St. Louis designed to “promote” LARCs targeted disproportionately African-American (50 percent) and poor (37 percent public assistance) women with the result that, while less than 10 percent of American women regularly choose LARCs for themselves, 75 percent […]

Lawyer moms are the best…or scariest moms

Time for some humour. As a “Lawyer Mom,” I loved this. And endorse it. It’s all true. Even the bit about laundry. I’m kidding. Sort of. Exhibit D. We are trained interrogators. You may be able to trip up a 4-year-old claiming the cat used a Sharpie, but are you ready for teenagers with a […]

Strip clubs shutting down across Canada

Here’s some good news: Strip clubs, with flashy signs advertising nude dancers, once had a strong footing in downtown centres across Canada. But as Cheetah’s Show Lounge in Kelowna, B.C. closes its doors, an adult industry insider says strip clubs are an endangered species being killed off by lack of demand. But also some news that causes me some […]

Kara Tippetts has passed away

Blythe Hunt wrote a few words here about Kara’s beautiful life. My little body has grown tired of battle, and treatment is no longer helping. But what I see, what I know, what I have is Jesus. He has still given me breath, and with it I pray I would live well and fade well. […]

Gotta love pro-life, family friendly media reps

I just got a call from a pro-life journalist to comment on yesterday’s Supreme Court of Canada decision. I stumbled around looking for excuses as to why I haven’t even read the decision yet, and then finally blurted out that we recently moved, I’m still unpacking boxes, and my crawling baby is tearing my house […]
