My Adoption Story

By Julia Wall, Intern The funny thing about adoption is that no story is ever “typical.” Although love is always interwoven throughout an adoption journey, details are unique to every family who has grown through adoption.

Respect Life Month: A Reflection on Human Dignity and Chronic Illness

by Chelsea Duffy At twenty-five years old, I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. It is a chronic illness caused by my immune system attacking the walls of my colon.

By Kristen Nupson, Legislative/PAC Director Life is a winning issue.   History has shown that a culture that does not value life cannot survive.   Last week at the Democratic National Convention, the issue of abortion was not once explicitly mentioned.
