“Eight percent of all babies in the womb who test positive for Down syndrome or a genetic anomaly survive and are born1. That means 92% of all babies who test positive are aborted. Ninety two percent never get a chance; reading that fact shook me to my core.”

“What should I tell my kids about sex?” | Simcha Fisher

“What should I tell my kids about sex?” | Simcha Fisher.

Most important parts:
“There is so much here that one thing is clear: there is no such thing as The Talk, singular.”

“This education has to begin at an early age, in an age-appropriate way. One reader sums it up this way: “5-year-olds need to understand what modesty is, and why our bodies need to be given an appropriate amount of respect. 7-year-olds need to be able to ask questions (and get answers) when they see “weird” magazine covers at the grocery store. 10-year-olds need to have some understanding of their biology. And so on. I don’t think there is an age that is too early to plant the seeds of modesty, purity, and chastity because it involves so much more than [sexual intercourse]. It is ultimately ordered to charity and the basic understanding that all people are created in the image and likeness of God.””

The whole article is worth the read.

Catholic bishops strike back | Washington Times.

“Why go to battle with the Catholic Church? The answer may lie beyond the current fray. So much of what the Catholic Church stands for is antithetical to so many positions of Mr. Obama and his core supporters (think abortion, embryo-destructive research, same-sex marriage). Perhaps, at bottom, this is no more than a power play. Take the Catholic Church down a notch now and make future battles easier later.”

Love this op-ed piece speculating the real reason for the HHS mandate.

Hate the fact that she’s probably right.

First Time Ever I Saw Your Face | GE ad.

Chills.  I have chills.

I wish this ad were still on the air!

The first time ever I saw your face I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were gifts you gave to the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hands
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was then at my command
My love

The first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last til the end of time
My love
The first time ever I saw your face
Your face
Your face
Your face

“The other news here is that thanks to a tipster, New Media, and a Twitter frenzy that followed, MTV has actually been shamed into doing the right thing — something once considered impossible.”

Witty commentary aside, I wonder how they ever would have gotten ethical approval for this type of casting, particularly if they were even remotely considering teenagers.  Though, the article only vaguely says “young adults”, so maybe that’s their cop-out towards people in their 20s.  I wonder how the parents / family of those cast would have reacted to such a public affront of morality.

I’m glad this crisis has been avoided… for now.
