Touch of Life fetal models

Friday, July 30th, 2004

I recently had an opportunity to closely examine these Touch of Life fetal models. They really are something else. It’s amazing to see how organized yet tiny these human models are. Incredible. The following is printed on the inside of the box lid:
7 weeks: The baby’s facial features are visible, […]

Christian Carnival

Christian Carnival is up!

Kudos to the Fringe

Tuesday, July 27th, 2004

I laughed. I cried. I thought about ordering the milk chocolate birth control pills, but I’m lactose intolerant – oh, and I don’t support baby killers.
Thanks, Fringe.

Funny, funny, funny

What really happened with Sandy Berger’s “unintentional” classified documents mishap.

First impressions

Monday, July 26th, 2004

My first impressions of the Democratic National Convention had very little to do with politics, and everything to do with a lack of fashion sense and a severe deficit in the rhythm department. Not everyone has rhythm, and that’s ok, but it’s a little awkward when so many people don’t have rhythm…and it’s being […]

The Life Application Bible

Saturday, July 24th, 2004

Does anyone have a Life Application Bible? I’m either about to confirm what you’ve suspected, completely irritate or just plain horrify you…or maybe you won’t care at all, but it’s a good post, so keep reading.
A friend and I were sitting and waiting the other day. She saw and picked up a Life […]

Alaska has more fire than Connecticut has land

Friday, July 23rd, 2004

I don’t know who took these pictures, but could be a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend of my brother who sent them to me. Yes, that’s the Trans-Alaska Pipleline in the foreground.
There are 3.2 million acres on fire in Alaska right now. Homes and cabins have […]

Getting to know the enemy a little better

Friday, July 23rd, 2004

The more time I spend volunteering at my local crisis pregnancy center, the more passionate I get (have you noticed?) about protecting the lives of the unborn. While I haven’t suffered through the guilt and horrors of an abortion (there but for the grace of God go I), I know women who have and […]

So many thinking errors, so little time

Friday, July 23rd, 2004

In a Planned Parenthood press release, we are informed that Planned Parenthood along with 20 other organizations are launching an ad campaign against Bush’s judicial nominees because:
Anti-choice hardliners believe that now is the time for additional attacks on women’s fundamental freedom of choice
Apparently now the right to have your children murdered is a fundamental part […]

:P

Jenna Bush sticking her tongue out at the press garnered a “breaking news” tag from World Net Daily, but I just think it’s one of the funniest news stories I’ve seen in a long time.

If we don’t kill, we’re putting lives at stake?

Friday, July 16th, 2004

For the third year in a row, President Bush has withheld taxpayer funds from the United National Population Fund (UNFPA) because of its ties with China’s population control program that involves forced abortions and sterilizations.
“This decision is clearly based on politics, not on public health,” added Gloria Feldt, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America […]

Joe Budden may be right

Thursday, July 15th, 2004

Much has been made of Joe Budden’s lyrics advocating abortion and violence against women. I thought about it a little bit today, and maybe he has a point in not apologizing. Men have rights, too! Men have been overlooked in the abortion craze. A man will be financially responsible for that […]

Good words

La Shawn Barber has a fantastic commentary on the Philippine pullout.

Paper wasps!

Monday, July 12th, 2004

I did a little research to figure out what exactly has taken up residence on the porch ceiling, and think I have settled on them being paper wasps. The nest is about the size of my fist. The first thing that struck me about this is how delicate and perfectly round the nest […]

A new perspective…so to speak.

A gynecologist has made himself completely unemployable…except possibly as an ultrasound salesman on dodgy internet sites.

Original sin?

Friday, July 9th, 2004

I’ve been discussing the concept of orginal sin (…sinful from the time my mother conceived me -Psalm 51:5), that sin is more than what we do, it is our nature from birth. I’m Lutheran (not a Calvinist) and I believe in original sin, also called total depravity.
I’m curious about what others believe and why. […]

What facts?

Friday, July 9th, 2004

Those inferior adult stem cells are at it again…
Adult stem cells taken from bone marrow can improve heart function in patients who have suffered a heart attack, German researchers said on Friday.
About stem cells, the article says:
…their use is controversial because the most promising stem cells are derived from human embryos.
I would like to […]

Kill babies or else?

Friday, July 9th, 2004

Were the Nazi’s even that http://www.cw.ua.edu/vnews/display.v/ART/2004/07/07/40eb85446e4e0 about making sure the Jews were murdered?
The federal government currently mandates that all agencies and clinics receiving federal funds distribute MAPs. [morning after pills]
Good. My tax dollars killing so I don’t have to. Whew!
“I feel that the University should offer the Morning After Pills because it is […]
