Justice Kennedy’s Retirement Brings Hope to the Pro-Life Movement

The pro-life movement had a, dare I say, great week. It feels odd to write those words, but those words are truth. We won a landmark case this week as the Court ruled in the favor of NIFLA, California pregnancy centers, and free speech for everyone. I am not going to dissect that case today, [...]

Human Dignity, Consistent Advocacy, and the Border

Congress should act this week to correct the current policy allowing for the separation of immigrant children from their parents if those parents have attempted to enter the border of the U.S. illegally. I realize that this statement may make some of you uncomfortable, but this is a Gospel issue as well as a pro-life [...]

Ireland Voters Choose Regression as They Turn From Their Pro-Life Roots

We are living in a time of progress. The sci-fi cartoons from years gone by are now becoming a reality. Automated cars, solar panels, trips to Mars, and artificial intelligence are no longer ideas waiting to be fulfilled. Instead, Elon Musk, Google, and Apple are spending billions to bring the imaginary to life. We have [...]

The Hard Days

I typically focus on the good days here at HOPE. I share the stories of redemption and reconciliation as we celebrate the lives of our patients and their babies. I am not apologizing for this, but I do think at times it is easy for us, the pregnancy center movement, to neglect sharing the hard [...]

Weeds to be Eradicated or Lives to be Celebrated

The Washington Post published an article recently from an author that argued in favor of selective abortion when the baby in the womb is found to have Down syndrome. The author celebrates the Science that allows us to test earlier today for abnormalities. She goes as far as saying that her two children are healthy, [...]

A New Day

Forty-five years ago this week, the greatest country this planet has ever seen ushered in a new era for future generations. An era that would bring about destruction to women, men, the unborn, and families. I realize that my description is aggressive, but Roe v. Wade was an aggressive court case that we continue to [...]

The One that is Hope

The Christmas story clearly shows that the hope of the universe is a person. Hope was what the angels sang about. Hope lay in the manger. Hope caused Mary to wonder in her heart. It was hope the shepherds came to worship. Hope was presented with gifts from the Magi who had traveled so far. [...]

Pregnancy Centers and the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear a very crucial case concerning the First Amendment and a pregnancy center’s right to operate within their values and convictions. This is a big day for the pro-life movement and one of its largest umbrella organizations, National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA) as we have an [...]

Grateful

Last week we invited volunteers back to HOPE to celebrate 20 years of service in Knoxville. We made gift bags, provided cookies and cake, and offered tours of the building for those that hadn’t visited in a while. The impact HOPE has had on over 25,000 patients would never have happened without the countless sacrificial [...]
