Marching Delawareans

Here are a few pics of our local March for Life in Wilmington today. It was about 20 degrees with wind chills at 0, but as you can see, we have some courageous pro-lifers here in Delaware!

As you can see out front, PP always hires off-duty cops on baby-killing day (Fridays). They had nearly their entire staff of whom was recording us walking by. I'm sure she was hoping to "get us" on something, but unfortunately for her, WE actually follow the law!

On to Monday! Have a great weekend everyone!

Gosnell Press Release


Contact: Jessica Ferraro


Philadelphia Abortion Doctor Facing 8 Counts of Murder

Charged with killing babies born alive after attempted abortion

Newark, Delaware, January 19, 2011—Today, the shocking news of the arrest of Philadelphia abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell has left the general public speechless. Gosnell , who was arrested Wednesday morning along with his wife and eight others, has been charged with eight counts of murder; seven of whom were infants born alive after late term abortions. After the babies were born alive, he used scissors to cut into the back of their necks and sever their spinal cords. It is believed that these children are only a few of perhaps hundreds that have been killed at the hands of Kermit Gosnell; but due to the absence of those records he cannot be charged further.

The eighth charge Gosnell will face is that of third degree murder in the case of Karnamaya Mongar, who died on November 20th 2009, when she overdosed on anesthetics under his care. Along with Kermit Gosnell’s complete lack of respect for human life, it has been discovered that his medical office contained bags and bottles of aborted children, operating rooms with liter boxes, and unsanitary instruments he used to carry out procedures.

Delaware Right to Life is outraged at the fact that for over twenty years government officials were made aware of Kermit Gosnell’s malpractices and nothing was done to ensure the protection of patients and their children. If action had been taken sooner the lives of Mongar and those seven babies might have been spared. We commend the efforts taken by District Attorney, Seth Williams who had the decency to intervene in one of today’s most recent attacks against the human person, when all others remained silent. We here in America will not see these gruesome injustices which are contrary to our freedoms come to end until personhood is finally restored to the child at the moment of conception. We keep in prayer the victims of this crime, and Mr. Gosnell, for his conversion to life-affirming work and the love of Christ.

Where will YOU be next Monday?

To many, life is the next party. Life is the witty status update on your Facebook. Life is money. Life is fast cars and freedom. Life..

But, at the end of the day what are the moments that have touched us the most? Who are the people that have made the deepest impacts on our lives? To me, life is the single mother who chooses to get up each morning, for the sake of her children. Life is the broken teenager who decides to keep her baby, despite the hardships she knows she will face. Life is that little old lady who dedicated herself to the poor. Life..

Every day people, every day faces, every day heroes.

These are the people who have shaped and continue to shape my philosophy of life.

They are an example to us of the example we are called to be to one another. Living the everyday life is sometimes the simplest, and hardest thing to do; but it makes the largest waves by touching the lives of those around us. It's that classic chain reaction, and it begins with you and me. Will we be a hero to the person sitting next to us?- A listening ear, a comforting smile? You may have the words they've been desperate to hear... You may save their life. And now, isn't THAT what life is all about?
So, my Philosophy? To put it simply: Live for others in the life you have been placed in. Our starting point is right now.

Life... What will your legacy be?

The Big, Disappointing Apple

Yesterday the Chiaroscuro Foundation held a long-overdue press conference in New York City to call attention to the city's abortion rate.  FORTY-ONE PERCENT of pregnancies in NYC end in abortion.  I haven't had access to the video of the press conference, but there are wonderful analyses at and National Review.

God bless Archbishop Timothy Dolan of New York for his candid and no-nonsense, yet quite compassionate remarks on the issue:
For the first time in my happy twenty-one months as a New Yorker, I am embarrassed to be a member of a cherished community I now — usually with a lot of pride — call home.

That 41% of New York babies are aborted — a percentage even higher in the Bronx, and among our African-American babies in the womb — is downright chilling.

This New York community is rightly celebrated for its warm welcome to immigrants, for its hospitality, sense of embrace and inclusion, and gritty sensitivity for those in need.

But we are tragically letting down the tiniest, most fragile and vulnerable: the little baby in the womb.

We have to do more than shiver over these chilling statistics!

I invite all to come together to make abortion rare, a goal even those who work to expand the abortion license tell us they share.

A quarter century ago, Cardinal John O’Connor publicly stated: “Any woman who is pregnant and in need can come to the Church and we will help you,” a pledge Cardinal Egan, and now I, reaffirm. Through our Catholic charities, our adoption services, our lobbying on behalf of pregnant women and mothers of infants, our support for life-giving alternatives to the decision all call tragic — abortion, — in our education of youth for healthy, responsible, virtuous sexual behavior, our health care, — we have done our best to keep that promise, … and these haunting statistics only prod us to keep at it.

Mother Teresa remarked that the worst poverty was to take the life of a baby so we could live, as we want. New York does not deserve the gravestone, “Abortion capital of the world.” Our boast is the Statue of Liberty, not the “Grim Reaper.”
 Many more spoke at the press conference.  I encourage you to check the links above and read more. 

Please also make sure to visit, a website the foundation set up to address this abysmal statistic.

No Easy Decision?

In the words of the brilliant Mark Crutcher, "Killing your child shouldn't be an easy decision." Yet despite its title, apparently MTV implies that abortion is exactly that -- an easy decision. Their new show, No Easy Decision, trivializes abortion and furthers MTV's liberal agenda by portraying the decision to have an abortion as just another option within the realm of "women's reproductive rights."

Ok, so I readily admit that I haven't actually seen this MTV show that everyone is talking about. Show like this just serve to raise my blood pressure to dangerous levels. But I've read some reviews from trusted sources and frankly, I don't think I need to watch it to know exactly what their goal is. Foremost, it's to coddle their pro-abort supporters like Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and the rest of their ilk, since they were so upset that MTV's other teen pregnancy show, 16 and Pregant, didn't show any of the teens having abortions. Could this be a more glaring indictment about what they truly stand for? Certainly not for keep abortion rare if they're upset that teenagers aren't having them! In public!

I'll leave the rest of the commentary to those who have had the brass to watch the despicable show, and point you to Kathryn Jean Lopez, the New York Times (shockingly), and Big Hollywood for some great analyses.

But thanks, MTV, for keeping our culture self-centered, secular, and pornified.
