A wife is a gift from God in life, death - The Arlington Catholic Herald

In July of this year, my wife of nine years, Sarah, passed away suddenly. We have four beautiful children, and our fifth was on the way. My wife was a gift from God during our life together. This woman made me into a man that loved the Lord and would pass that love to his children. In life and in death, Sarah gave me gifts to grow as a man, husband and father.
A wife is not a right but a gift that she and God give to her husband. A relationship that is Christ-centered will bring both spouses to a more fruitful relationship with God and each other. Often during our marriage I could see how Sarah brought me closer to God.   Visit:

Pro-abortion Iowa Senate candidate falsely says he opposes late abortions

First, as a member of the House of Representatives Braley voted against the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. H.R. 1797 would provide nationwide protection for unborn children who are capable of feeling pain, beginning at 20 weeks fetal age.
Second, Braley co-sponsored the “Women’s Health Protection Act”—which, as National Right to Life President Carol Tobias told the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee back in July, would be more accurately described as the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act.”  Visit:  Pro-abortion Iowa Senate candidate falsely says he opposes late abortions

Ashley Bridges Made the Ultimate Sacrafice for her Unborn Baby - Please Pray for Ashley

A 24-year old mother, Ashley Bridges, made the ultimate sacrifice for her unborn baby when she denied life-saving chemotherapy treatment for bone cancer. Bone cancer accounts for less than 1% of all cancers, and cancer in young adults is extremely rare. In the United States, 2,300 new cases of bone cancer are diagnosed each year.
ashleybridgesBridges was only 10-weeks pregnant with her daughter Paisley when she found out about her diagnosis. Her doctors recommended that she begin chemotherapy immediately. However, in her case, this would mean ending the life of her unborn baby. Bridges said, “There’s no way I could kill a healthy baby because I’m sick.”
During her third trimester, Bridges was told that delaying treatment had allowed the cancer to spread. Even though she was only in her eighth month of pregnancy, she was told she needed to deliver Paisley immediately so she could begin treatment.
But even with multiple rounds of chemotherapy, her cancer was terminal. Bridges was given less than a year to live.
