The practically peerless legend leaves his great defense of life to others. What a challenge

Gosnell uncovers what Roe wrought
Sheila Liaugminas | May 7 2013 | comment  
And undercover videos show Gosnell is no ‘aberration.’ Some honest advocates of ‘choice’ are seriously reconsidering their whole premise and belief system in light of recent news. While some ‘abortion rights’ activists are coming unglued over these revelations.

The incongruity of the anti-violence campaign

A question I've always wanted to ask President Obama...

The life force of motherhood
Sheila Liaugminas | May 9 2011 | comment  
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.

Look who’s anti-choice
Sheila Liaugminas | May 4 2010 | comment  
In another round of efforts by the pro-life movement to at least help women considering abortion to make a fully informed choice, another judge has held up a law that would provide it. The ‘no-choice’ movement has succeeded again in withholding information from women…..for now.

Abortion reality show provokes thought
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 14 2010 | comment  
The idea behind the interactive webcast program ’Bump’ was to follow three fictitious characters through unplanned pregnancies and invite viewers to debate and try to shape whatever decisions the three women came to about choosing abortion or not. It set out to be provocative, and it did provoke.

UN conference on women: Shedding light
Sheila Liaugminas | Mar 12 2010 | comment  
Many thousands of women, organizations and NGOs descended on New York for the recent global checkup with the annual  ’Commission on the Status of Women’, with the Beijing conference as sort of a benchmark. It was heavy on the agenda of spreading access to abortion under the mantle of ‘reproductive rights’, but there was a large pro-life contingent there to stake claims that authentic dignity for women comes from true universal human rights….for all human beings.

Happy ending in Vegas

Or rather……beginning. Seems like this story was just out about the mother who changed her mind after what would have been the last minute (the procedures to begin the abortion were underway) and a health care team raced to save the pregnancy and the baby.

Big win in Vegas
Sheila Liaugminas | Feb 24 2010 | comment  

Oddsmakers would either not touch this one, or laugh at you if you even suggested the wager. 'During an abortion, the mother makes the other choice. And they lived happily ever after...'Okay, we won't know about the 'ever after' part until time goes by, but the rest is true, and it did happen in Vegas.

Beautiful chaos
Sheila Liaugminas | Feb 19 2010 | comment  
Ever since I heard a most poignant story many years ago about a young woman, wife and mother, whose life ended much too young and her husband referring to something she saved ‘for special occasions’ by saying ‘every day you’re alive is a special occasion’…I have repeated that story and that lesson and tried to live it. Here's a variation on that theme...

Tebow ad consequences
Sheila Liaugminas | Feb 12 2010 | comment  
Before the Super Bowl even happened last weekend, we all know the public debate over it whipped up into a heated controversy and abortion activists joined forces to contest it and try to have CBS yank the Tim and Pam Tebow ad from the commercial lineup. So just the leak that it would air generated that media frenzy and very public debate. That’s the beauty of this whole episode...
