We were going to name her Pearl Olive Owen, but then her initials would have been ‘POO’ so we went ahead and switched that around. ~ Singer Jake Owen, on rethinking his daughter’s name, as quoted by People, April 5 [HT: Laura Loo]

My choice is to not support abortion, except in cases of a clear-cut choice between the lives of the mother and child. A child conceived through incest or rape is innocent and deserves the right to be born. ~ Film critic Roger Ebert, “How I am a Roman Catholic,” March 1, written a little over [...]
Even if people want to, uh, take away women’s right to choose, I would advise my daughters never to, uh, uh, get rid of a child, I don’t think I’d have a right to make a law about that. I don’t think we have a right to have the law determine marriage. What I do [...]
I want her to be happy and I feel like she wants a kid so bad. I take back some of the things I said to you thinking you were crazy about carrying her child. I still think it’s a huge decision, but I understand why you’d want to do that for your family. ~ [...]
I can’t handle shots anymore. And I always think of the next day: If I’m hungover, how am I going to take care of Lorenzo? I had a hangover once, three months after I had him. It was bad. I wanted to kill myself. Never again….
I’m so over partying…. My pregnancy changed the way I view things. It’s not all about being stupid and going out. It’s about family and making memories and working hard. I take everything more seriously….
I figured it was selfish for us to pour our resources into making our “own” babies when those very resources and energy could not only help children already here, but through advocacy and service transform the world into a place where no child ever needs to be born into poverty and abuse again…. My belief [...]
I’ve had full conversations with the baby already… I’m trying my best to communicate from beyond the womb. Whether it can hear me, I don’t know, but I’m talking to it a lot…. When we saw the ultrasound, that thing was moving around a lot. So I think we are going to have our hands [...]
But not so fast. Pro-lifer Meg saved it, and I have reposted it…
A baby fills your life. ~ Actress Jennifer Garner Family is a wonderful thing. It doesn’t mean that you can’t do other stuff with your life. In fact, having a family makes things you have that much richer. It’s much nicer to share it with people you love. ~ Actor Ben Affleck The two have [...]
Guthrie: It’s a movie with a decidedly pro-life/anti-abortion purpose. But [do] you feel like people, as I understand it, are getting the wrong message about what you are trying to say by your participation?
Mallette: Yeah, I don’t feel that it is a pro-life message. I mean, people are going to get from it what they want to. It’s s a true story, it’s a historical piece. And the reason I wanted to get involved with this film was because, you know, I lived in a pregnancy home my whole pregnancy with Justin, and so this is going to be used as a tool to raise money for pregnancy centers. So regardless of your stance, pro-life, you know, or whatever it is, I just think that anybody would want to help girls in need if they need a place to stay.
