  • Time to Focus on Catholic News Sources
    Post by Bob Laird, 8/24/2011

  • NFP Unveils the Truth about Personhood
    Post by Gerri Laird, 7/27/2011

    “Just when we think they aren't listening, some profound truth pops out!

    “Americans continue the trend in recent years to favor strict regulatory controls to limit the number of abortions and the circumstances under which they may take place. A new (http://www.lifenews.com/2011/05/23/gallup-poll-americans-want-all-or-most-abortions-illegal/) Gallup poll reports that too many Americans do not understand that their position is essentially, albeit not completely, pro-life.
