God is so good and He definitely works in mysterious ways. This afternoon while I was at the prayer vigil outside Planned Parenthhod, a young man walked up to one of us and handed her a 40 Days for Life vigil banner (and those things aren’t cheap!). He told her that he stole it from us a while back, but had been thinking a lot about abortion since then. And that his ideas have changed a lot now.
Praise God and please keep this young man in your prayers, that God, Who is working in this man’s life, may bring him to the joy of conversion of mind and heart. Glory to God in the highest! His Mercy endures forever!
Read Planned Parenthood’s founder, eugenicist Margaret Sanger, in her own words in Pivot of Civilization, which you can download for free in various formats from Project Gutenberg. (I was so disappointed to see that H. G. Wells wrote the Introduction for Pivot. I hadn’t known that he was a eugenicist.) And be sure to read Grand Illusions: The Legacy of Planned Parenthood. Available in PDF or HTML. I’m still reading these and they’re both on my list to review.
For anyone who has been following the case of Baby Joseph in a Canadian hospital (see my earlier post), and who had heard that a hospital in Michigan might be willing to come to the rescue of Joseph and his family–well, that hospital chickened out. But there is still hope. Fr. Frank Pavone of Priests for Life has offered to go to Canada to help the family, even if he has to fly back from Rome, where he has been in meetings at the Vatican, to do it.
I’ll post another update when I hear more. Please keep praying for this family and about their situation. Lord, have mercy, all these poor people want is to take care of their baby in their loving home until he passes away. They’re not asking for heroic measures or expensive treatment! Canada, let this baby go!
Read the post on the website for Priests for Life, the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.
Last night I wrote a post about LiveAction and the Saul Alinsky book they recommended, Rules for Radicals. I have to admit, even after reading Why Live Action did right and why we all should know that by Dr. Peter Kreeft, I still object to Alinsky’s ideas and to anyone in the pro-life movement using them.

Holy unCaped Crusaders, Batman! The author of unPlanned (the story of how Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director, was converted to the pro-life movement–and ultimately, the Catholic Church!–by participating in an ultrasound-guided abortion) has joined forces with LiveAction, the group that has been working for years to Expose Planned Parenthood and has made quite a stir with the release of several undercover sting videos making the news and putting the government-funded organization on the run in recent days.
Abby will be taking on the role of Chief Research Strategist! Read the post on LiveAction’s blog and on Jill Stanek’s blog. Please keep all of these courageous pro-life workers and warriors in your prayers. Look out, sleazy corrupt abortion empire! You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!!
A pro-choice Catholic priest (shudder!) is suing LifeSiteNews Canada for libel for reporting on things he said in public. And he’s suing for $500,000. Good Lord! This lawsuit could shut down a great pro-life labor of love. They need our help now! Read more and find out how to help.
