I was pro choice to the core...and then I had an abortion
I was pro choice to the core...and then I had an abortion
My abortion became my deep dark secret. Carrying the burden certainly wasn’t easy. I felt as though I had a sickness and if I were to say, “I’m sick and I need to be healed,” then I’d quickly be reinforced that I made the right choice. My moral intuition and the emptiness in my heart told me that my decision was wrong.

There's nothing pro life about ignoring the poor

"Many people worried that the Holy Father was saying those “moral and religious imperatives” don’t matter anymore. Other people wanted to believe he was saying that. But of course they do matter. Pope Francis believes they matter. What he was saying is that, in the task of bringing the world to Jesus Christ, we witness best when we save the unborn and when we feed their mothers."

Is This Love? Surrogates, Same-Sex Couples, and Motherless Babies

"No one is entitled to a child. Even married couples are not entitled to children. They have no right to expect that they will be given the gift of a child. They pray for children, and remain open to them in their marriage, but there’s no entitlement. You don’t walk up to the Giver of Life and insist He give you what you want. You don’t demand a gift. It’s a gift."



What does being unconditionally pro life imply?


I'm not afraid of my fertility (anymore)

"Somehow my heart has been softened - I'm no longer counting down my fertile years, fearfully anticipating just how large of a van we're going to need by the time I'm 40... At this point? I think it's likely we'll have somewhere in the neighborhood of 10 kids."



Beauty, not burden

"Raising three children—three girls at that—has granted me a life filled with joy. It is a tiresome joy. There are nights when my wife and I think we are alas going to enjoy time in a romantic setting: low lights, a glass of wine, and time alone on a couch stained by chocolate candy or popsicle hands—when it happens. One of our little innocent beings, created in love, will wander or whine and wreck the moment. "

'Child resistence'

"What if you could see your life from God’s perspective, and could know that He would only send you one more child? Or none? Would you act differently? Yet all the medical advice we get, all the advice from relatives and friends, is premised on the opposite assumption: You will get pregnant if you don’t take steps to prevent it. Well, real life (even conditioned as it is today) says otherwise."

The real handmaid's tale

"Flash forward 30 years, and it appears that the Handmaid’s tale was not so much allegory as it was prophecy, once removed. Women today are being reduced to their bodily functions and used as breeders and most of our society seems to be in support of it."

How we use, and don't use, NFP

"I joke with people that we have finally gotten ‘good’ at NFP. Which basically means, we have started listening to the signs of fertility. But thing is, when we ‘sucked’ at NFP, we got the coolest gift because of it. It’s almost been a year since John Paul was born and I can tell you, he has made me a better person. "



There is No Such Thing as Natural Family Planning

"NFP isn’t a thing. I can’t hold it in my hand, or put it in a drawer, or carry it around in a shopping bag. It isn’t a drug that we take. It isn’t even a tool (although it often involves “tools” like charts and thermometers or fertility monitors and the like). NFP isn’t a tangible thing at all."

Euthanasia: A Further Erosion of Familial Understanding

"He'd just heard about the new Belgian law that would allow euthanasia for terminally ill children, and started looking up other cases: Nathan Verhelst, the transgender man who'd ended his own life at 44 because he wasn't loved; Ann G., the anorexic woman who got a psychiatrist to sign off on her death after being sexually abused by another psychiatrist."


'I am Ryland'

"I wanted to be a boy. Desperately wanted to be a boy. I thought boys had more fun. I felt like a boy in the way that our society views genders. I liked blue and green more than pink and purple. I remember sitting up as high as I could climb in our huge mulberry tree, bow & arrow in hand, trying to kiss my elbow (a neighbor lady had told me that if I could accomplish this, that I would turn into a boy, which was what I wanted in that moment, as a child, more than anything.)"
