Contraception and feminism misaligned

There is still gender inequality, but promoting “the pill” as a key to success is just a Band-Aid and a bad one at that.

Let's welcome the children

One local married couple, in April 2015, found themselves in a Planned Parenthood, next in line, prepped to abort their baby. They had three young children at home.

Comforting a woman who miscarried

One of the most consoling things I was told was “I am so sorry for you, I cannot pretend to understand what you are going through right now. There are no words I can say that can help you feel better. I am here for you, and I will be praying for you. Come and sit in silence, or come and talk to me anytime you need it.

FDA's take on contraception: We're from the government and we're here to help

The Food and Drug Administration [FDA] has a chart on their website summarizing the available methods of contraception. The chart, below, reminds me of the Ronald Reagan quip, "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"
