Abortion


Gosnell forced recalculation of missing children

Sheila Liaugminas | 31 May 2013

Among other things the trial of notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell did to jolt cultural awareness of what abortion is and does, it gave us a whole new sense of how we count children who have gone missing in America.


Gosnell convicted, Castro charged

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.


‘Gendercide’ in America

Sheila Liaugminas | 03 June 2012

More frequently these days, news stories sound just Orwellian.


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.

How do abortion clinics escape the law?

Sheila Liaugminas | 14 May 2011
Time and again, these facilities are avoiding the most basic state health requirements to hold license to stay in practice. And it’s no surprise that they keep turning up in the news when something goes terribly wrong and they can no longer cover it up.

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.

Talk about the wounds of racism

Sheila Liaugminas | 16 February 2011
The subject of America’s painful past with slavery is in the news again. Good….we need to have this debate.

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?’
