Dear Topless Pro-Choice Protestor

The March for Life is being held right now in Ottawa. I was  unable to make it, but it turns out a woman took off her shirt to protest the pro-life position. Again. Here is my open letter to her. Dear Woman-Who-Pulled-Off-Her-Shirt at the March for Life rally: I gather you feel strongly about abortion […]

National victory begins in our local communities

When the mainstream media decides to champion a cause, it can mean millions, if not billions of free advertising for that particular issue. The acceptance of same-sex marriage in our society would be a good example. Conversely, what the media chooses to ignore is often tragic and catastrophic. Canada’s National Marches for Life attracting tens […]

The comms strategies of environmentalists in Alberta

I listened to this program on CBC not too long ago. It’s Chris Turner talking about how to be a Green Party candidate in Calgary. I appreciated his remarks. Activists in particular tend to come guns a blazing, and it’s rare that others share the passion. That can be the first problem. Pro-life activists tend […]

This is how I'd avoid the door choice.

I’d find another way of entering

What door would I choose? I refuse to be categorized. I’d scale the side of the building til I found an open window. Ya. I do not like the drama of this ad. That said, I would like all women to be confident in their own real beauty. You need to a flashplayer enabled browser […]

Hearing from our pro-life advocates

I love this and this. The editors at Faith Today, the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada’s magazine, interviewed a number of pro-life students and staffers in their most recent issue. It’s a quick but encouraging read. A few samples: “I stay involved in the pro-life movement because abortion is a human rights violation that takes the […]

Getting ready for the March for Life, say “Hello”

Canada’s National March for Life is this Thursday, May 14th. Provinces around the country will be holding their own individual marches in solidarity with the larger march in Ottawa. In preparation for this event, I’ve been reflecting on how we present ourselves as pro-life people and how we interact during these gatherings. Let’s use this […]

Being transformed by tragedy

As readers of this blog know, Kara Tippetts died a few months ago. Her husband, Jason, wrote a piece for the Washington Post explaining how his family was going to spend this first Mother’s Day without her. It’s a beautiful and poignant article. This paragraph is with loaded with wisdom: We will live in the […]

Really, truly, authentic pilgrimages

Now for something totally different and shamelessly self-promoting.  I was actually given an invitation to blog about this, so I’m not being totally shameless. Having lived in Rome, Italy for two years and marrying a man who spent nearly a decade traipsing around the European continent, I have some experience in these matters.  There are […]

Canadian nurses expected to participate in medically induced death?

Will nurses be forced to participate in physician assisted death against their consciences? The answer, according to this national nurses’ protection body is both yes and no. The convoluted article in the Canadian Nurse Magazine by the Canadian Nurses Protection Society seems to both acknowledge conscience rights and deny them all in the same breath. […]

Fifty Shades of Grey: A Feminist Tale

I went to the pharmacy yesterday to pick up a few things up and Fifty Shades of Grey was sitting on the shelves behind the cash. At least it was behind the cash. People are going to buy the DVD, forget it, and leave it lying around in a pile with their other DVDs. Some […]

May Day

It’s May Day. So I asked my friend Paul Malvern, who stands up for working people AND is pro-life to offer his comments. Here they are: While many people associate May Day with big military parades held decades back in the Soviet Union and other communist countries, the reality is quite different since this special […]

Out of the mouths of babes

Sometimes the most insightful and remarkable statements come from children.  We have all been witness to a child whose keen observation, humility and complete innocence causes them to spout great and eternal truths at the most uncanny and opportune (or inopportune) moments in life.  Often these truths, which are so obvious to the child, have […]

Debate on campus

From the Onion: Saying that such a dialogue was essential to the college’s academic mission, Trescott University president Kevin Abrams confirmed Monday that the school encourages a lively exchange of one idea. They forgot to get into the part about socially ostracizing, raising eyebrows, looking askew and docking grades for those students who discuss an […]
