The Luck of the Irish

In light of Saint Patrick’s day, I would like to bring attention to a wonderful group of young people from Ireland that I met last year . . .In 1992 a group of 7 college age students stood up against Ireland’s version of Roe v Wade, and they were successful. This group is called Youth Defence. They were made the leaders of the pro-life movement in Ireland by organizing events and creating awareness to fight to keep Ireland abortion free. 20 years later, Ireland is still abortion free! Because those 7 college students saw the truth of abortion and rejected apathy and rallied their country to stand for life people live today and families are not broken because of the destruction abortion brings emotionally and physically.

Religious Freedom Rallies

On March 23 at noon, in over 110 cities across America, ‘Stand Up for Religious Freedom’ rallies will be held to stop the Health and Human Services (HHS) Mandate which requires employers to provide free contraception, sterilization, and abortion inducing drugs. This mandate violates the conscience’s of millions of Americans and is a blatant attack on our constitutional right to religious liberty.

President Obama’s administration is confining the practice of faith to within the four walls of churches. You should not stand by idle while this is done. Too many people are silent and believe that people of faith are the minority, but this is not the truth. Apathy will do nothing and good men must say something!

Media and abortion advocates are attacking the Catholic church at its core. They have split us before on the abortion issue and we must not allow them to do it again. Our opponents are scared of the Catholic church. They should be because truth and love are on our side!

We must and will be united as one nation under God!

Please join your local religious freedom rally or host one of you own. More details can be found at StandUpForReligiousRreedom.com.

I will be giving the invocation speech at the San Diego ‘Stand Up for Religious Freedom’ rally. Details at San Diego for Religious Freedom.

International Women’s Day – Values

Today is International Women's Day! I ask myself what that means exactly? On the news this morning it was spoken of as a day to recognize the empowerment of women as a fundamental human right. I completely agree! I see this day as a day to recognize the fundamental human right to life of women both born and unborn and how women today should have values along with their "empowerment".

Well, one woman who is quite popular today is Karen Santorum. Last night I watched a short interview of her by CBS news. I encourage you to look at this woman as a wonderful role model. She admits when she was younger she made mistakes, she has a fantastic education and career, she serves her family and husband first and foremost, she follows God's call for her family, and she is unquestionably pro-life.

Please watch this inspiring interview by CBS of Karen Santorum on International Women's Day:

Are we giving women in the womb a chance to live as well? Are women who live today standing for this fundamental right to life?

Catholic Radio San Diego – Truth Speaks

Hey Everyone,

Being back at John Paul the Great Catholic University has kept me very busy, and I can hardly believe the quarter is almost over. I'm getting back into the swing of things and blogs will be posted on a regular bases coming next week. 

Today I went to the launch of Immaculate Heart Radio's newest station in San Diego! We are so blessed to have 24/7 Catholic content available to us now in San Diego at AM 1000. I wanted to share with you briefly a few things that stood out about today's event. Since I should be studying here they are in bullet points:

  • What Father Dempsey said today at the launch is exactly why I started my blog for Catholic Youth:"Every human person is a mini radio — an evangelist. To be evangelists we have to be informed." ~ Father Nicholas Dempsey, St. Therese of Carmel San Diego ~ 

  • How can you teach others if you are not properly informed? 

  • We have to be a present voice among the every day buzz. . . Start having conversations with your piers (this is where your biggest impact can be made if you do nothing else)! 

I'll be back soon! Please keep me in your prayers as I study and take my final exams.

Truth Prevails in Our Modern Day Culture

This is not an easy story to tell or read. But there is an important message of hope and the need for truth. . .

Last week I received a comment on one of my blogs from a young lady who had taken RU-486 and hours later changed her mind and wanted to stop the chemical abortion process. She told me “I didn’t think I would feel this bad. I’m not religious but I know this isn’t the right thing to do.” Within an hour we were able to make contact with Dr. Delgado in San Diego who is one of the few doctors who has successfully saved the lives of children through progesterone treatment after the chemical abortion pills have been taken.

Unfortunately before the young lady met with Dr. Delgado she ended up in the emergency room with severe cramping and bleeding, worse than she ever expected. I’ll save you from the morbid details (learn more about taking RU-486). The bottom line is that when this young lady went to the emergency room the doctor lied to her and told her it would cause worse damage if she did not take the remaining pills for the RU-486 abortion process.

Religious Liberty – A Time to Stand

Nearly four years ago Barack Obama was elected president of the United States. I was 16 years old and on that day I wept because I knew President Obama was going to do things that would drastically challenge and change our society because he had neither regard for the children in the womb nor for religious liberties. I had just gotten out of a dance class and I was sitting in front of Target weeping because our country was about to hurt and I knew that I was one of many who would not be silent against the civil injustices of my lifetime. I wondered what we were about to face. . .

I’m nearly 20 years old now and over the last three years my fears have come true. The citizens of the United States have fought FOCA, abortion coverage in health-care, same sex marriage, and much more. Then, a few weeks ago President Obama’s administration mandated contraception, abortifacients, and sterilization under his new health care law. Not only does the mandate give these services on demand with no co-pay or out of pocket fee, but it requires employers to provide this insurance or be fined. It also requires employers to educate employees on the services.

Oh and have I mentioned the worse part yet?

Every employer, with only churches as the exception, must provide this morally unacceptable insurance or be fined. President Obama’s administration is allowing us to only practice our faith within the four walls of our church because otherwise this insurance policy is required for institutions such as Catholic Hospitals, schools, Catholic Charities… This is first and foremost a First Amendment religious liberty issue. Your rights have been violated, and this is just the beginning.

Yes, this is about abortion, contraception, and sterilization, but more so about President Obama’s administration’s power to overrule rights and religious freedoms. If they are able to put this mandate into action, they will be able to next add abortion to the list of available preventative services. This is an extremely slippery slope!

Yes, four years later, and we are facing the biggest civil rights issue since Roe vs Wade! I’m 20 years old and I just saw Jayne, my 20 year old best friend, and more than five other close friends be arrested for praying in front of the White House yesterday. They stood for what they believe in, they prayed to God for mercy on our country, they prayed for our religious liberties, and they were arrested on a public sidewalk.

In all honesty how much worse could it possibly get?

Mandated funding of contraception, abortifacients, and sterilization.

Religious liberties violated and ignored.

Men and woman arrested for praying on a public sidewalk.

I’m writing to you with tears and in shock. Jayne and I aren’t just little girls anymore praying hand and hand in front of an abortion clinic and sidewalk counseling women before their child’s life is taken. We are now praying and taking action against mandated funding of morally unacceptable services. We are fighting for our rights, while trying to fight for the rights of the precious children in the womb.

So I ask you. Will you stand together America?

A few nights ago, on a national conference call Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life said, “You do not adapt to an injustice. You oppose it!”. Father Pavone also talked about how this battle is not one that will be won over night, but will be an ongoing long term struggle. It will take months and it could take us into next year, but WE CAN NOT GIVE UP. They want us to be utterly overwhelmed; they want our tears to turn into apathy.

Cameron, Katie, Jayne, & I After a ProLife Event in 2007

We will not be silent! So here are some immediate steps of action:

  1. Review talking points and talk about this! Educate others!
  2. Contact Congress
  3. Pray Novena
  4. March 23 — Stand Up for Religious Freedom Public Witness

Arrest at White House

With a heavy heart I share that this morning a number of my close friends were arrested infront of the White House for peacefully standing and praying on a public sidewalk in defense of religious liberties and against the HHS mandate violating every American’s conscience. This could be the greatest civil rights issue of our time. May God have mercy on our country!

My best friend Jayne White was unconstitutionally arrested for kneeling and praying in behalf of religious liberties. They were silenced by the arrest and released a little later after having payed a $100 fine per person.

Father Wilder of Priest for Life was also arrested yesterday and said, “Occupy Wall Street protesters have been occupying federal property for months, but when we kneel in prayer, the police are called in and we are arrested,” Father Wilder continued, “We knew that was the risk when we gathered today, and we will do it again regardless of the risk. What people of faith — of every faith — need to do now is stand with us.”

“These were the first arrests in opposition to the immoral Obama Mandate, but they won’t be the last. Our freedom to exercise our religious beliefs without government coercion is one of our most precious liberties. We cannot bow to tyranny or be forced to participate in the taking of innocent human life against our consciences. Peaceful protects and civil disobedience can be expected to continue until Obama rescinds the mandate,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who is also head of Pro-Life Nation.

What has our country come to?

Action: Defend Religious Liberty

Take action today to defend religious liberty and stop abortion pills and contraception from being covered through mandated insurance policies with no copay. We will not allow religious liberties to violated by giving free birth control and abortion pills!

Read my original blog, if you haven’t already, giving more detail on the issue. It’s very important we are all educated on the issue at hand: ‘Religious Freedom and America Consciences

Take Action:

  1. Sign the Petition by ACLJ to Reverse President Obama’s Forced Abortion Pill Coverage for Religious Institutions
  2. Pass this on for others to read and take action
  3. Pray

Dignity of the Born and Unborn,
