Catholic.net - Who’s Your Daddy? - Reproductive technologies

Here's a sad commentary on American culture but with some suggestions to improve the situation. "...legal and technological changes have been reshaping families, as reproductive techniques like sperm donation, egg donation, and surrogate motherhood become far more embedded in our culture than most of us realize.
Now we have kids with two moms, four moms, or none at all.
These technologies, and the legal tangles they create, have shifted us to an understanding of family that pretends bodies don’t matter, and denies children’s need for their own mother and father. Here are only a few examples of how what we might call “third-party reproduction” is reshaping our culture; hundreds such stories emerge every month." Visit: Catholic.net - Who’s Your Daddy?:

Confessions Of A CF Husband

"Tricia has Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a terminal, genetically inherited disease that especially affects the lungs. Tricia has already lived beyond her life expectancy, and she is now in need of a double lung transplant to continue her life here on earth.

In July of 2007, Tricia went through the week long evaluation process to determine if she was a candidate for a transplant. She was a candidate, and we began making plans to temporarily move to Durham, NC to be close to Duke University Medical Center.

The day before Tricia was to begin the physical therapy that would prepare her to be placed on the transplant list, we found out that we were unexpectedly pregnant. Against the advice of many of her doctors, we chose to keep the pregnancy, having been told that both Tricia and the baby had less than a 50% chance of surviving."

This blog, written by Tricia's husband tells of the struggle this family has with cystic fibrosis and their courageous stand against the Culture of Death. Doctors advised abortion, but the Lawrensons had a beter idea: Trust God. The blog is long but a very touching example of sacrificial love.

YouTube - Pro-life video -"You Are So Beautiful:"

First, Please pray for my daughter Linda who will be traveling home from Argentina this weekend. I can't wait to hear her stories, as we have only been able to communicate by short e-mails. Parenthood is an adventure of discovering the gift your child is to the world. And in the process of parenting, there is much to learn about one's self. Life is full of surprises!

Here is a beautiful video of fetal development sent to me by my friend Fiona. While it is evidence of life in the womb, it cannot convey the dynamic personality of the individual child.

Thanks Fiona for the information.

The Importance of Electing a Pro-Life President :: Americans United for Life

"As the 2008 Presidential Election approaches, we find ourselves struggling to determine which presidential candidate will best serve our country and hold fast to the principles and values we hold dear. One factor of increasing importance in this determination is a candidate's position on abortion and life issues. How important is it for the pro-life cause to elect a pro-life President? What impact will the next President of the United States have on the pro-life agenda? Does it really matter what the next President's position on life issues is? The answer is simple: Yes, it does matter. The President of the United States plays a crucial role in advancing the pro-life cause in America, and the election of a pro-life President will guarantee a political environment that is supportive of pro-life legislation and policies" For a thorough examination of the impact a pro-life president can have on our nation visit: Pro-Life President :: Americans United for Life:
