    “Mothers ought to bring up and nurse their own children; for they bring them up with greater affection and with greater anxiety, as loving them from the heart, and so to speak, every inch of them.” Plutarch

    Roe v Wade decision “abetted irresponsible – even predatory – male sexual behavior”

    Top Legal Scholar Warns Abortion Issue Can Divide a Nation
    http://www.c-fam.org/publications/id.1562/pub_detail.asp

    “Despite what abortion advocates promised and the court believed, [Robert] George instructed, the decision ‘has taken the lives of more than fifty million unborn victims…done immeasurable moral, psychological, and sometimes physical harm to womencorrupted physicians and nurses by turning healers into killers…undermined the moral authority of the law by its injustice…abetted irresponsible – even predatory – male sexual behavior…[and] metastasized into widespread elite support for deadly embryo experimentation and even…the horrific and grisly practice of fetal farming – the creation of human beings by cloning or other experimentation and transplantation…’” Robert George, Princeton University Professor

    “George concluded that the 2012 U.S. presidential election ‘will almost certainly be the decisive one when it comes to the Supreme Court and the future of Roe v. Wade.’”

    My older sons and I watched Glenn Beck’s documentary on Friday evening. It was quite educational.

    On his follow-up program this evening, Glenn Beck said, “No one on this program is saying this administration is setting out to commit atrocities in America. What we are saying is that the pattern repeats itself and we must be vigilant and watch for warning signs.”

    Glenn Beck often quotes from progressives in the Obama administration. These progressives are known to support population control, involuntary fertility control,  abortion, infanticide, etc. I want to point out to Glenn Beck that since 1970, progressives have not only set out to commit atrocities in America, but they have achieved this in the form of legalized human abortion. If violently ripping apart the bodies of tiny innocent babies is not an atrocity, I don’t know what is.

    “Justice Roberts Hints He Could Overturn Roe”

    Justice Roberts Hints He Could Overturn Roe
    http://newsmax.com/InsideCover/johnroberts-supremecourt-abortion-roev-wade/2010/01/24/id/347808

    “First, Roberts and his fellow strict constructionists on the court are now armed and ready with a powerful rationale for overturning the 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion ruling if Justice Anthony Kennedy or a future justice becomes the fifth vote against Roe.”

    “Secondly, successfully placing Roberts atop the high court is beginning to look like former President George W. Bush’s most important legacy – a gift that will keep on giving for conservatives for decades.”

    Blue Skies Smiling at Me

    Ella Fitzgerald – Blue Skies

    Blue Skies

    I was blue, just as blue as I could be
    Ev’ry day was a cloudy day for me
    Then good luck came a-knocking at my door
    Skies were gray but they’re not gray anymore

    Blue skies
    Smiling at me
    Nothing but blue skies
    Do I see

    Bluebirds
    Singing a song
    Nothing but bluebirds
    All day long

    Never saw the sun shining so bright
    Never saw things going so right
    Noticing the days hurrying by
    When you’re in love, my how they fly

    Blue days
    All of them gone
    Nothing but blue skies
    From now on

    I should care if the wind blows east or west
    I should fret if the worst looks like the best
    I should mind if they say it can’t be true
    I should smile, that’s exactly what I do

    iPhone interprets babies’ cries

    Why tot’s not appy, by
    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/2817327/Why-tots-not-appy-by-iPhone.html#ixzz0dDPufOLv

    “AN iPhone application to translate a baby’s cries and tell parents instantly what they mean has been made available.
    Researchers discovered infants had five distinct, universal yells – regardless of language – indicating whether the tot is hungry, annoyed, tired, stressed or bored…”

    “The makers claim 96 per cent accuracy. But parenting experts believe it could make people rely on technology, not instinct and experience.”

    “‘Learning to interpret cries is part of the bonding process and forms the foundation for good communication.’”

    Sounds interesting as long as there is not a “He’s just doing that” option.

    Catholic Mother’s Perspective

    Quotes from Elizabeth Foss:

    “Connected parenting is evangelistic in the truest sense of the word. If we treat our children with the respect they deserve because they are created in the image and likeness of God and if we meet them with the gentle love of the Blessed Mother, we reach them for Christ.”
    Elizabeth Foss

    “We have so very many ready opportunities to offer a cup of water to the least of these! How many opportunities we have daily to let the little children come to Him!”
    Elizabeth Foss

    “Done prayerfully and with grace, connected parenting is truly a living spirituality!”
    Elizabeth Foss

    “This style of parenting drives us to our knees and so brings us closer to heaven. It forces us to die to self again and again to meet the needs of God’s little creatures. It’s immediately easier to shout and/or hit and abuse our authority to put out the fires of our day. We can stop the behavior through fear and punishment. But that doesn’t really require any heroic, saintly effort on our part, does it? Ultimately, it destroys the relationship with the child and it becomes for us the occasion of sin.”
    Elizabeth Foss

    “In order to parent effectively, we have to grow. We have to change and mature. We have to meet children where they are and lead them somewhere better. We can’t do that without relying heavily on God’s grace…”
    Elizabeth Foss
