Getting married, living common-law

I did this little piece about the difference between living common law as a new longterm relationship norm and getting married. The comments are always fun. There’s a note on behalf of All Divorced Canadian Men telling me to stuff it, as well as the usual clever atheist drawing out the fact that Christians are Loons […]

An article about how to parent seven children practically screams for a Sound of Music photo

That little thing called pride

  Pride–I know thee well. This article made me smile in a couple of places. It’s a mom recounting how she makes it all happen with seven children. I liked this part the best: It turns out that I don’t need the public presence my pride thinks my talents deserve (and all the smartphones, haircuts, […]

Living simply

This looks interesting to me. The former family doctor turned environmentalist turned filmmaker spent most of a year off the grid as an experiment and filmed the whole thing. Her documentary All the Time in the World has received much praise from critics and has won several awards. Lent is a season of fasting for many Christians–not to […]

In Ontario’s sex education, it’s hidden in plain sight

Canada’s capital is undertaking one of the biggest infrastructure projects in its history: Light Rail Transit. As expected costs have been climbing. They are now reportedly over two billion. Yet this enormous, world class taxpayer-funded project has no public washrooms along the route factored into its design or its budget. That’s right. Until the GottaGo […]

A public service announcement of sorts

The only comment I have on this story is about the media on it. Dr. Michel Ronald Prevost, an Almonte, Ont., gynecologist, admitted he gave abortion patients incorrect doses of medication that resulted in fetal abnormalities in two pregnancies that went to term. That the doctor in question was trying as a matter of routine to kill babies […]

Gender Cafe, Ottawa, February 9

I first met Daniel Gilman on a very, very cold day outside Canada’s Supreme Court years ago for a pro-life protest. Daniel and I both cling to this strange, fanatical, anachronistic, dinosaur notion that life matters, that people matter and we ought not kill them, even when it seems like that would be a good idea. I […]

Leo: his mother made his father choose between them

This is a story of love and generosity for a dark day. When Samuel Forrest’s son Leo was born in Armenia, his wife gave him an option: the child would go to an orphanage, or they would divorce. Samuel chose Leo. But the beauty of the story doesn’t end there. He started a GoFundMe campaign […]

Assisted suicide decision “warps the perception of people with disabilities”

Taylor Hyatt spoke out, quite eloquently this morning, about the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision to decriminalize assisted suicide: On Friday a shaken Hyatt called the Supreme Court of Canada’s ruling allowing doctor-assisted death both disappointing and worrisome, especially for its inclusion of “disability” among “grievous and irremediable” medical conditions that might be included in […]

The Supreme Court of Canada’s decision about Canada’s laws on euthanasia/assisted suicide will be released today at 9:45 am. I don’t think anyone is holding their breath. Father De Souza’s article in the Post is most excellent, very poignant, very worth reading: Should the court rule tomorrow to liberalize our laws on euthanasia and suicide, we […]

Corrosion begins in microscopic proportions

In light of tomorrow’s Supreme Court decision, the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition has put out a release noting these specific points: If legalized, assisted suicide will create new paths to abuse of elders, people with disabilities and other socially devalued people. The scourge of elder abuse in our culture continues to grow. Depression is common [yet […]

Three parent embryos

Three parent embryos was approved in the UK yesterday. This article explains what this is about: But what has been proposed, and now approved by the House of Commons, is not a treatment at all.  The proposed technique ignores people who already have mitochondrial disease, spurning them in favor of creating new individuals who will […]

Parents: Talk to your children

Miriam Grossman, (100 percent MD, 0 percent PC) is doing an admirable job these days to equip us all to cope with 50 Shades of Grey. I’m encouraged that she is rising to this challenge, considering I just saw a 50 Shades of Grey display at my local grocery store, felt a rising sense of despair and […]
