#2844

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again – to be a Catholic is to be Pro-Life. You can’t be Catholic and pro-choice. It just doesn’t work.

That being said, let me tell you a little about what LSU’s Students For Life Club spent yesterday doing.

We were out on campus by 6:30am (which is incredibly early for most of us, myself included!) to set up a huge display on the parade grounds. What did this display consist of? 2844 pink and blue flags. Why that number? Check the picture below and you’ll see:

Why 2844

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast thinks that Louisiana needs 2844 more abortions every year to be “healthy” and they want to provide those abortions at the new clinic they’re trying to build in New Orleans. So each flag represents one child Planned Parenthood thinks needs to be aborted. Isn’t that horrific?

And get this – the new clinic was supposed to be up and running by now. Instead it’s still in the building stages, early building stages. So there are at least 2844 babies who were born in the last year that Planned Parenthood thinks shouldn’t have been born – but aborted.  Isn’t that insane?!

We also had big boards set up with all kinds of information:

All day long we had people coming and talking to us about the exhibit, what it meant, and we made a whole lot of people start thinking about what Planned Parenthood is really about. It was a good day.

Here’s some pictures of the flags:

We’re in the middle of 40 days for life right now! Do something to stand for life – whether it be praying outside an abortion clinic, wearing a pro-life t-shirt, or just offering prayers for all those affected by and involved with abortion.

Book Update #2!

Hey y’all! I know it’s been a little while since I posted, and I apologize for that. I went on a lovely week long vacation to Orange Beach with my family. It was wonderful, aside from getting to eat sand after a wave pulled me off my boogie board. (not something I”d recommend you try)

Anyway, so when I got back from the beach I was able to put a few more touches on the back cover, and a few other little things like that. I also got back a copy of my book from the last person I had sent it to for review…that I had kinda forgotten about. And she had a lot of good comments and suggestions. That meant going and doing another draft, polishing it up, and then resending that to my publisher along with the fixed covers. All these little things add to the timeline for when it’ll be released. I still don’t have a solid release date yet. I’m hoping it’ll be just a couple weeks.

I’m excited to announce though that I’ve started work on the outline for another apologetics book, this one on Pro-Life apologetics. Being pro-life and being Catholic go hand in hand. You can’t be Catholic and “pro-choice”. You simply can’t. Anyone who tells you otherwise is mistaken. And part of being a heroic Catholic is knowing how to defend all those who have no voice. The children in the womb especially. I’ll post updates on that book as they come, right now my *very* optimistic goal is to have the rough draft completed by mid July. Then the really fun part begins.

I hope that all y’all’s summers are going wonderfully, and happy Feast of the Ascension!
