1. I Found God’s Image in My Son’s Autism (posted October 13) I truly believe that God is with us always, that God is in us, that God feels every emotion we feel.

Term and partial birth abortions: the mythical arch-nemeses of the anti-choice movement (posted October 23) "As an OB/GYN I can come up with hundreds of scenarios where a D & X is the medically preferred procedure. Everything I think something is just too catastrophic to happen, the human body surprises me. With the “Partial Birth” abortion ban the government took the safest medical option off the table in most states."
