The problem with Cecile Richards’ abortion

elle-01-cecile-ClKQmM-blogPlanned Parenthood President Cecile Richards disclosed in Elle in October that she had had an abortion:

I had an abortion. It was the right decision for me and my husband, and it wasnít a difficult decision. Before becoming president of Planned Parenthood eight years ago, I hadnít really talked about it beyond family and close friends. But Iím here to say, when politicians argue and shout about abortion, theyíre talking about meóand millions of other women around the country.

At the time I thought the “it wasn’t a difficult decision” line was terribly insensitive to Richards’ three surviving children. They certainly know it could have been any one of them who was snuffed, in which case so what, according to their mother?

Stanek Sunday quote: “All these blessings, and life itself, come from Almighty God”

Thanksgiving is a time for families and friends to gather together and express gratitude for all that we have been given, the freedoms we enjoy, and the loved ones who enrich our lives. We recognize that all of these blessings, and life itself, come not from the hand of man but from Almighty God. Every […]

What pro-life gains are you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

Happy Thanksgiving!

In total, Rich and I will celebrate the holiday three times by Saturday!

Last weekend we combined business with pleasure, flying to Dallas to tape an episode of Life Dynamics’ Life Talk (more on that later) and then celebrating an early Thanksgiving with daughter Daena, son-in-law Andy, and baby Levi.

Our time together was made even more special because Andy’s parents Peter and Michelle were also there, having flown to the U.S. on November 13. You will recall Andy is from New Zealand, and his mom and dad had never met Daena or their first grandson. So we all spent a lovely weekend bonding and ewwing and ahhing over baby. Here’s a photo of us after church…
