2015 summer pro-life youth boot camps!

boot camp finalby Jill and Kelli

Following the tradition we started four years ago, we’re posting all the upcoming summer pro-life teen- and college-aged boot camps we found listed around the country. If we missed any, please let Kelli know.

As I’ve said before, if I had teens in the house  I’d not only send them to church camp every summer, I’d send them to at least one pro-life boot camp during their high school years. These provide a great opportunity to build strength and confidence in the sanctity of life and also launch lifelong pro-life friendships.

It’s great to see so many pro-life groups in so many states sponsoring these vital training programs for our young people.

Pro-life blog buzz 4-10-15

  • At Women’s Rights Without Frontiers, Reggie Littlejohn shares a WND article which questions the supposed “easing” of China’s One-Child Policy:

    “The core of the problem is not whether the government is allowing one child or two children,” Reggie Littlejohn… told WND on Wednesday.

    “The government is still telling how many children people can have and is enforcing that limit with coerced abortions,” she said. “And it’s not clear to me that there are fewer abortions. Women and babies still are dying.”

    Littlejohn pointed out China still requires a birth permit for the first child and for the second child.

    “Without a permit, there still are forced abortions, unless you’re rich enough to buy your way out,” she said.

Why I chose to get arrested at Speaker Boehner’s office

When word came down the night of January 21 that House GOP leaders were reneging on their promise to hold a vote on the 20-week abortion ban the next day – the haunting 42nd anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v Wade decision – [WARNING: vulgarity alert], I was pissed off to the height of pisstivity. Sorry, that’s the most accurate way I can describe it.

Abortion contributing to Chicago’s “fiscal free fall” and Rahm’s collapse

Rahm Emanuel

From the Investors.com article, “Rahm Emanuel’s Chicago nears fiscal free fall,” March 2:

In progressive ChicagoMoody’s has cut its credit rating to two grades above “junk.”…

The steady financial decline of the nation’s third-largest city prompted us recently to say that Chicago was well on its way to becoming the next Detroit….

The one Super Bowl ad NARAL didn’t have an opinion on

54cec682e7bcf2ae15394ce6_super-bowl-nationwide-ad-dead-kidBeing from Chicago, I had no vested interest in last night’s Super Bowl, other than to care about the score at the end of each quarter in hopes my husband might win a chunk of his office pool (which he did!).

So I amused myself by watching the ads and reading Twitter critiques about them by the feminist pro-abortion crowd.

I thought the Nationwide ad was serious but worthwhile, although it was quickly and summarily excoriated by the rest of the world as possibly “the worst Super Bowl ad ever,” which ”sucked the mood out of the game and was generally crappy.”

I didn’t see the ad that way. I saw it as as an important reminder to parents, although I do see how families who have lost children in home accidents could have been traumatized.

Here’s the ad, in case you don’t know what I’m talking about….

Chicago archbishop won’t deny communion to pro-choice pols

by Carder I would not use the Eucharist or as they call it the communion rail as the place to have those discussions or way in which people would be either excluded from the life of the church. The Eucharist is an opportunity of grace and conversion. It’s also a time of forgiveness of sins. […]

Did Cecile Richards borrow Michelle Obama’s abortion dress?

Ok, the dresses aren’t quite the same, but I had to google to compare, because they sure looked close at first glance.

Here was Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards today at a fundraising event for pro-abortion New Hampshire U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen….

Here’s a view without the jacket. It looks like a black uterus right there where a uterus would be…
