The grass is not always greener

  We are, I’m convinced, as a human species, always playing the comparison game. So-and-so is happier, healthier, prettier, smarter. Here my friend and former PWPL blogger Véronique definitively explains why and how we shouldn’t do this. Another thing: We shouldn’t take social media as evidence of how life is or is not going. (I personally […]

Men and the Pill

Crazy charting of a natural family planning method, see photo. It’s not always easy, but it’s better than the alternatives. And what it does is make a couple aware of their fertility, which is dictated by the woman’s fertility, because of the way biology works. In this article, a man testifies to the benefits. Imagine […]

I’m a pro-life mom with a broken heart

You’ll likely notice that the blog has been fairly quiet in the last week. We don’t usually go dark this long. I’ve been struggling to blog, even with the writing of very short posts. I was overwhelmed by the terrorist attack in my city, Ottawa. I’m sick. My husband is sick. My son is sick. […]

Reclaiming abortion rights?

I was trying to ignore Katha Pollitt’s new book called Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights. But I’ve just been asked to do Tommy Schnurmacher’s show in Montreal on Monday at 10:30 am so I can do so no longer. Sigh. Just watched this interview with her. It doesn’t strike me that she is saying anything terribly […]

WHO, Mayo Clinic Journal and NIH: Pill causes breast cancer

Let’s start the morning off with some controversial and depressing news: Unfortunately for the more than 10 million American women who take oral contraceptives, hardly anyone reported that the World Health Organization also classified the combination Pill as a carcinogen. In fact, the Pill continues to be the most popular method of contraception in this […]

Justin Trudeau asking questions about abortion in PEI

So more news and confusion about abortion and the law in Canada: Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau thinks Prince Edward Islanders should be asking questions to make sure the Canada Health Act is being respected in regards to a recent decision to cut short planning for an abortion clinic on the Island. [...] “I think […]

Just say no to intentional killing of the innocent

Mark Penninga writes about the ongoing legalization of assisted suicide debate in the National Post.  One need not be healthy or strong to be protected equally under the law. As long as you have human DNA, you qualify for protection. Euthanasia and assisted suicide violates this principle of no intentional killing. I was shocked by […]

Support the Christian Advocacy Society of Greater Vancouver

Today, more than ever, Christians are under attack. Christians have always been responsible for doing  good work–creating hospitals, running hospices and homes for the homeless, the abused and those who cannot help themselves. The Christian Advocacy Society of Greater Vancouver is one such group–helping others, including mothers who are unexpectedly pregnant in a manner that […]

Left, right and the path toward death

Over three decades ago in Ottawa, there was a municipal government push toward accessibility for the disabled. Sidewalks were lowered at intersections to accommodate wheelchairs, elevators were mandated in all public buildings as were ramps. This approach to life came with onerous expenses in some cases, but no matter: Compassion is costly. These were all […]

Euthanasia may be coming to a hospital near you

The frightening prospect of legalized euthanasia seems to be coming at Canadians like a tidal wave. It has already happened in Quebec this summer when euthanasia was legalized thanks to the efforts of Ms. Hivon. “The approach we took was one of health care. We should not leave anybody suffering at any stage, so why […]

My daughter is a stripper for Third Wave Feminism

I came across Brain, Child Magazine this summer. Someone sent me a link to an adoption article they published, and I was hooked. The article was a quality piece and I was challenged by what I read. Today I received my first email newsletter and it included a link to this article. I think it’s […]

About that egg freezing “perk”

Oh Satire. How I love Thee. Courtesy of The Onion, a biting look at the ridiculousness of egg freezing as a supposed perk: As part of their efforts to accommodate women who wish to delay parenthood, Facebook officials announced Wednesday that the company will offer financial assistance for female employees to freeze their newborn children.
