The Pro-Choice Positions Make No Sense

3222549279_6973c585ee_b

For the last couple of decades, I have noticed a shift in the paradigm of the pro-choice argument.
What the left would characterize as progress in rationale and intellect, the right would more accurately characterize as simply throwing the argument of the decade against the wall and hoping it sticks.
That is, until science and basic logic discredit it and the next argument becomes mainstream.

Is there a life after life?

Great question, right?
You can google this question or google Near Death Experiences and you will find hundreds, if not thousands, of stories of people who have seen that there is something waiting for us beyond death.

Here are two examples of stories that touched me personally.

Thanksgiving and Suffering

“In light of heaven, the worst suffering on earth will be seen as no more serious than one night in an inconvenient hotel.” ~St. Teresa of Avila.

Whenever I hear or read this quote, I am reminded of one of the most “inconvenient” nights of suffering I had in a hotel many years ago. My husband and I were living in Italy at the time, and we were driving home from a vacation to the north of Italy. We decided to stop for the night at a place that sounded nice: “The Romantic Hotel.” The night was anything but romantic. The Italians didn’t put screens on their windows, there was no air conditioning, it was summertime, and the mosquitoes were hungry. It was a night from hell. But we were tired, so we took refuge under the sheets and tried to sleep.

The Pro-Choice Fallacy

I_Am_the_Pro-Life_Generation

Very recently on social media, I was debating someone about abortion and while it was a very respectful debate, one thing came to mind as this was happening. What came to mind is that the entire pro-choice argument has changed over time, while being careful not to use the word “progressed”.

How Science and Faith Reveal the Truth about Abortion

Science and faith aren’t incompatible, as popular opinion would have us believe. Faith and science both search for the truth about humanity and the world around us. When we have problems reconciling the two, it’s likely because our search for the truth has been infected by politics. By politics, I mean a political agenda that has already decided the answer, and is now looking for evidence to support it.

Mom on the workforce

Mom-at-work

Recently, I’ve come across a surge of debates that address the issue of a Catholic mother staying at home vs. working outside of the home, taking on the form of either digital article or social media. The abridged version of proponents of each side tends to go as follows:

“The Catholic mother should never, under any circumstance, work outside of the home. Their children are too important.”
“You don’t understand our specific circumstance.”
“I don’t care what your specific circumstance is. Here is a quote by a prominent Catholic author supporting me.”
“Well here’s a quote by a prominent Catholic author that supports me.”

Timeout Time

I turned 23 not too long ago. My life is just beginning, in a lot of ways. I’m not married (yet) and I don’t have children (yet). I am in a wonderful, incredible relationship, though, and of course that sets me to thinking about the future. Who I want to be as a wife, as a mother: it’s a clean slate. I haven’t made any mistakes in those fields yet. And I’ll be honest, that really scares me sometimes.
