Pro-life vid of the day: One word – “Abortion”

Abortion-1by Kelli

A parting note from Kelli:

Fifteen years ago, I heard Jill Stanek, who was still relatively unknown at the time, tell her story about her experiences at Christ Hospital. At the time, I was operating a pregnancy resource center. I never imagined that one day, years later, I’d stumble upon her blog, become a regular reader and commenter, and then one day become the administrative assistant and editor of her blog.

It’s been a privilege and an honor to work here for six years, getting to know so many dedicated readers and volunteers who give of themselves to help advance the pro-life message. This blog wouldn’t be what it was and is without ALL of you, so thank you! And thank you most of all to Jill for giving me this opportunity and for believing that I could learn what I needed to know to do my job effectively, even when I didn’t believe it myself. :)

Love to all of you.

Pro-life vid of the day: Facing the truth about abortion


by Hans Johnson

A parting note from Hans:

I have always been pro-life. At least since I learned where babies come from, whenever that was. I believe I heard of Jill’s moving experience as a nurse cradling a baby left to die even before her appearance with Bill O’Reilly. I eventually stumbled upon this blog and sparred with other commenters and, I’d like to think, made friends, especially with xalisae and Deluded Lib Pro-Lifer (thanks for making me write that).

I was surprised and honored three years ago to be asked to help out with the Pro-life Videos of the Day. I thank Kelli for coaching me through the process of posting, and for being such a terrific editor. I certainly needed one. I also thank LauraLoo for her input and support, and most especially Jill. I know she will continue to have a great impact on the pro-life movement in her new leading role.

I will continue to do my little part as well. Thanks to you all.

Your friend in the Fight for Life,


Pro-life vid of the day: The womb is a preborn’s castle

by Hans Johnson It’s summer, so what better time to make a sandcastle? Well, you’ll feel quite inadequate at this activity if you attend the Hampton Beach Sand Sculpture Competition. In the midst of the short rocky shoreline of New Hampshire is this very short stretch of beach, attracting artists from around the world. This […]

Pro-life vid of the day: The hidden every-day atrocities

by Hans Johnson Once again the nation has been rocked by an unspeakable human atrocity. A young man too cowardly to face off with the criminals he was supposedly angry with, instead murdered nine innocent churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, last week. Recently students from the Immaculate Heart of Mary School (in association with Saint […]

Pro-life vid of the day: My dear dad

by Kelli It doesn’t need to be Father’s Day to celebrate the impact of a wonderful and involved father. This video from the Jerome Lejeune Foundation was too sweet not to share. LifeNews writes of the organization: … [T]he mission of the Jerome Lejeune Foundation USA is to provide care, advocacy, and research for people […]

Pro-life video of the day: The virtues of being a dad

by Hans Johnson


This Sunday is Father’s Day, when we reflect with gratitude on the men in our lives who have helped to hand off our children to the next, hopefully better generation. Senator Tom Cotton (R) returned from military service to run for office and serve Arkansas. But his most important service is in raising his newborn son Gabriel (photo, right, from a recent townhall meeting).

The highs, lows, and downright comical aspects of fatherhood (see videos here and here) are the subject of the new bestseller The Dadly Virtues: Adventures From the Worst Job You’ll Ever Love. This collection of essays was discussed by editor Jonathan Last and some of the contributors – all engaging conservative and libertarian writers – on this AEI panel:

(Not so) pro-life vid: Minister suggests preborn lives don’t matter

by Kelli Self-proclaimed Christian minister Nikki Brooks decided to take on the pro-life response to the “Black Lives Matter” movement, explaining why she has “never shed a tear” over anyone’s aborted preborn child – other than three of her own children whom she mentions. Somehow at the end, her conversation seems to suggest that instead […]

Pro-life vid of the day: Motherhood – both real and enchanting

by Hans Johnson


Artist Rebecca Roher was already curious about her friend’s pregnancy, so when Guts, a Canadian online feminist magazine, asked her to do a comic strip on that very subject, she interviewed her through back and forth emails. The result was Mom Body, a frank detailing of her friend’s recent experience having a baby. [WARNING: It ends with one totally unnecessary profanity.]

The rest of the special edition in which the strip appears show’s an amusing “arm’s length” anthropological look at pregnancy and motherhood, but the strip itself has several undeniable truisms:
