23 Weeks and 3 Days

Born at 23 weeks and three days, Saybie is now the world’s smallest surviving baby. This little girl, nicknamed Saybie by her doctors, weighed in at 8.6 ounces. This is great news and truly a remarkable testament to medical advancement, prayers, and this little girl’s fighter’s heart. I am a sucker for a heartwarming story [...]

Senate Rejects the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act

This week, Senator Sasse introduced a piece of legislation that sought to protect infants who survive botched abortions. Oftentimes legislation consists of hundred of pages of legalities and long-winded political speech, but the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act does not follow that trend.

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, [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

These showers are a consistent highlight to our year as we get to experience the love of a mother for her child, the outpouring of support from our community, and the impact love has on broken situations. We recently [...]
