The truth about Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood

As Planned Parenthood celebrates its 100th anniversary, it's time that everyone knew the true story of its founder, Margaret Sanger. Far from being an admirable person whose life should be celebrated, she was actually a eugenicist and white supremacist, and a Nazi admirer dedicated the the "elimination of the unfit."

Awesome Pro-Life Signs

This picture was in 40 Days for Life's update today. It wasn't the topic of the post, but I thought the signs were awesome. Don't you think so, too?

The story itself is short and inspiring.

Trailer out for new movie about the "Grunt Padre"

The Capodanno Guild writes:
A trailer is now available for the new documentary film about the Grunt Padre. This film — a partnership between the Father Vincent Capodanno Guild and EWTN — will be about the life and heroic death of Servant of God Father Vincent Capodanno, a Medal of Honor recipient.
The documentary is currently in production with the working title of "Called and Chosen"; EWTN plans to air it in spring 2017. The film has the twin goals of making Fr. Capodanno's story more widely known and to raise the funds required for his cause for canonization.

Feast of St John the Apostle

Today, December 27, is the Feast of St John, the "beloved disciple", Apostle, and Evangelist.

Fish Eaters explains:
St. John was the son of Zebedee and Salome, and the brother of St. James the Greater (Feast day: 25 July) who, together, were given the nickname "Boanerges" ("Sons of Thunder") by Christ Himself. The men of Zebedee's family were fishermen, and it is possible that SS. John and James were disciples of St. John the Baptist when they encountered the One of Whom the Forerunner spoke. They were called just after SS. Peter and Andrew -- two other fishermen brothers -- left everything behind to follow Jesus, and SS. Peter, James, and John had the most prominent positions of all the Apostles.
A tradition associated with this feast day is the family members sharing a cup of wine (it may be boiled with sweet spices first to remove alcohol) with the toast, "Drink the love of St John." See more at the Fish Eaters link, above, and at Catholic Culture: St John the Evangelist.

Overpopulation: The Making of a Myth

This new educational series of animated videos from PRI shows that "overpopulation is a myth," while brilliantly skewering the population control movement and its constant predictions of doom. Highly recommended for ages 12 or so and up.

Tomorrow: National Pro-Life T-Shirt Day!

This year's National Pro-Life T-shirt Day is tomorrow: Tuesday, Apr 27. Wear your pro-life gear as a witness to your convictions. I bought my family's T's at Heritage House where a wide selection is available. You get to choose the design and can even have one added to the back for a little extra.

If you need to wear something dressier on that day, consider pro-life jewelry. Cute "Precious Feet" and "Precious Hands" pins, made to match a 10-week old unborn baby's in size and shape, are a popular option. Lots more here.
