At Different Times in Life

As children head back to school, many parents are snapping “first day of school” pictures. This annual event documents not only some interesting fashion trends, but also how physically different we look at different ages.  I recently found an older family album that solidified this fact. I had to take a second look to verify that the young woman in the black-and-white wedding photo was indeed a person I know very well, my grandmother.  Pictures of her as a young child are more difficult to reconcile with the elderly reality—but then I found a photo that caught a gesture, or something about the twinkle in those eyes that is undeniably her.  It’s a reminder that we are more than our physical parts.  Mere anatomy and physiology, though incredibly complex, fail to capture or define our character.

Rest in Eternal Light: Sister Paula Vandegaer

“Greater love hath no man than this,” says John 15:13, “that a man lay down his life for his friends.” As with the parable of the Good Samaritan, so often that great love is lain down for those who are strangers – one’s “not yet” friends. So it was with the Sister Paula Vandegaer, a pioneering nun devoted to the sanctity of every life and to walking alongside women considering abortion. Sister Paula passed away in Los Angeles, California, on August 13 at age 82.

In the Corridor of Conscience: A Doctor’s Story

In a couple of rooms there were several scheduled C-sections; across the hall in another room there were several “D and E's.”  “D and E”, I learned that day, stands for “dilation and extraction”, a second trimester or later abortion where the baby is dismembered in the uterus and removed in pieces. Those lucky enough to be on one side of the hall went home in car seats. Those across the hall left in red biohazard bags.

The Impact of Chemical Abortion by Mail

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the U.S. abortion industry has undergone significant changes. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates mifepristone, the more dangerous first drug of the two-part chemical abortion cocktail, via a Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS), which limits how the drug can be dispensed. After years of fighting these safety standards, the abortion industry took advantage of the pandemic to obtain a court order in July 2020 blocking the requirement that mifepristone be administered in person, a key element of the REMS.

COVID-19, Nursing Homes, and the Need to Protect the Elderly

In early 2020 news began circulating that a life-threatening respiratory illness was sweeping across the world and had made its way to the United States. Reactions to the severity of the problem varied, but most jurisdictions seemed underprepared to deal with how COVID-19 would impact long-term care facilities, specifically nursing homes.
