Gosnell convicted, Castro charged
Sheila Liaugminas | 14 May 2013
Mother’s Day just passed with fair weather and loving celebrations in much of the country. But it was surrounded by a perfect storm.
Roe at 40
Sheila Liaugminas | 23 January 2013
“Picture a football stadium that holds 55,000 people, and then multiply that to 1,000 such filled stadiums, and you’ll have an idea of how many human beings we have lost, how many babies have been killed, since the Roe v. Wade decision 40 years ago.”
To really honor Dr. King
Sheila Liaugminas | 22 January 2013
First, respect the fact that he was the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Reverend first.
The royal baby
Sheila Liaugminas | 06 December 2012
The announcement that Prince William and Princess Kate have conceived a child, an heir to the throne, has been most providential.
American culture and politics going forward
Sheila Liaugminas | 04 December 2012
The president made that word his campaign slogan followed by a period. Now it should be followed by a question mark.
Equivocation on human life
Sheila Liaugminas | 16 November 2012
One accuses Fox News host Bill O’Reilly of intellectual dishonesty cautiously and only with substantial reasoning. But for the third time, I think it’s warranted.
Election 2012, finally
Sheila Liaugminas | 06 November 2012
The presidential candidates are making their closing arguments, racing around the States, and especially the swing states possibly still in play, along with their top surrogates. Church leaders are making their final appeals, turning out pastoral statements and letters to reach all the citizens in their dioceses and parishes, with the help of priests and ministers.
The Dems agenda
Sheila Liaugminas | 06 September 2012
Throughout the Republicans’ primary debates and into the GOP convention, that party was accused of being too focused on social issues and not the fiscal ones that matter to the country. Now, the Democrats opened their convention with a heavy emphasis on…social issues.
The Akin fault line
Sheila Liaugminas | 23 August 2012
Sometimes, it takes a bad blunder by one individual to trigger a long-simmering tension into a full-blow eruption.
Being born is a right
Sheila Liaugminas | 28 August 2011
So in the daily sweep of news stories, sometimes certain headlines or blog post titles grab attention more than others. Sometimes it’s only a matter of better headline writing, rather than story content.
‘Unfounded population fears’
Sheila Liaugminas | 26 July 2011
The myth of overpopulation has been widely debunked for a while now. So did activists who based their global ‘reproductive health’ efforts shift attention to real human needs? No. They changed the language and spun it.
A lesson from Caylee Anthony’s demise
Sheila Liaugminas | 09 July 2011
This facet of the murder trial occurred to many pro-life people, in some deeply meaningful way.
The life force of motherhood
Sheila Liaugminas | 09 May 2011
Several years ago, a film came out that that was part psychological thriller/part science fiction that involved a missing child and a woman tortured by the denial of his existence. Way too creepy a premise for me, so I didn’t see it. Then I learned that it was all based on the premise that a mother’s love was a force so powerful, it could not be broken.
Justin Bieber’s every word
Sheila Liaugminas | 22 February 2011
I cannot explain the pop cult phenomenon of this young man and his meteroric rise to fame and his sensational following. But if he suddenly drops off the velocity meter or falls off the bubble…..I can probably tell you why.
Abortion’s tortured language
Sheila Liaugminas | 12 February 2011
And logic. Starting with ‘choice’…
The feminists vs. the Sisters
Sheila Liaugminas | 17 December 2010
The thought alone is provocative. ‘Who’s lookin’ out for you, kid?’
Untethered to logic and natural law
Sheila Liaugminas | 01 October 2010
"To say that safeguards for individual liberty do not have any intrinsic worth is to say that individual liberty does not have any intrinsic worth. To say that individual liberty does not have any intrinsic worth is to say that the individual human person does not have any intrinsic worth. This is to deny that we are endowed with rights by our Creator. To deny that is in effect to deny that there is a Creator. This is atheism and nihilism no less than moral relativism." Who said this?
Women “must be prepared to kill”
Sheila Liaugminas | 07 July 2010
The pro-life movement has long worked toward just laws for all human beings and for public debate about the truths of abortion, using clear and honest language. A staunch abortion supporter just came out with a candid article calling other abortion advocates to admit the truth, abortion does kill a unique human being. But then she insisted that’s just necessary to do sometimes…
Mother’s Day gems
Sheila Liaugminas | 07 May 2010
With Mother’s Day approaching, I’ve been hearing a lot of commercials on TV and radio saying things like “Nothing says ‘I love you’ like diamonds,” or “Show her that you love her with a gift from (fill in the blank) Jewelers.” Or even “Tell her that you love her with a beautiful bouquet of (our) Flowers (or chocolates…or both).” How about this: Tell your Mother that you love her...
Obama’s inclusive address
Sheila Liaugminas | 06 April 2010
President Obama issued an Easter address that aimed at the widest reach of the message of salvation at the heart of the Resurrection. Sort of…

The Boy Scouts cave in|

Under enormous pressure, they have voted to welcome openly gay scouts. What message does the change in policy send young…
A boy’s life with unisex scouts
23 May 2013
The Boy Scouts of America will vote today on whether they will admit homosexual scouts. Will they become the Unisex…
23 May 2013
“Comfort women”, carpet bombing, atom bombs, lethal drones and genocide can all be justified by appeals to necessity.
Digital multitasking: scourge or blessing?
22 May 2013
How can we teach students to focus on what they ought to be doing?
Who or what is a “child”?
22 May 2013
Canada's Parliament lacks the courage to take a stand on defining when an unborn child will be protected by the…
