November 26, 2013 – Day Gardner

// November 26th, 2013 // No Comments » // Quest for a Culture of Life in America

All pro-lifers (actually all Americans) should know that African-American (A-A) babies are targeted for abortion by Planned Parenthood, and the abortion industry as a whole. In other words, the legacy of Margaret Sanger and racism continues into the 21st Century. We should all know that a disproportionate share of abortions is done on A-A women. Is abortion so acceptable in the A-A culture? Are there A-A leaders trying to stop this genocide?
Yes! There are many truly great A-A pro-life leaders and we are blessed to have Day Gardner as our Guest Tuesday the 26th. She made history as Miss Delaware when she became the first black woman to be named as a semi-finalist of the internationally renowned Miss America Pageant, breaking through numerous racial and stereotypical roadblocks for others to follow.
Today, Gardner is the founder and President of The National Black Pro Life Union, Associate Director of National Pro Life Center on Capitol Hill and an executive member of the National
Clergy Council. She is a sought after speaker, author and an articulate spokesperson for the pro-life movement.

November 19, 2013 – Tara Shaver

Albuquerque (ABQ) New Mexico is the late-term-abortion capital of the USA because there are virtually no restrictions on abortion in New Mexico. That may change today (Tuesday, 19 November) because the good people of ABQ signed enough petitions to get a”Pain Capable Abortion Ban” on the ballot for today’s election. If this passes, ABQ may be the only city in America with a municipal ordinance restricting abortion.

ABQ is thus the current location for pro-life forces to gather. Do you remember the Texas State legislature battles over pro-life legislation in Austin this past summer, and the Kermit Gosnell trial in Pennsylvania earlier this year?

Tara Shaver and friends are leading the effort to ban abortions of pain capable children–20 weeks post-fertilization–in Albuquerque. I encourage you to listen to this amazing development–opening a new front in the battle to protect pre-born children and their mothers–by way of a municipal ordinance. How did this young mother get involved? Who are her allies? What national attention is focused on ABQ today? And will this new approach be spreading to your city? Are you willing to be in the fight for life in your home town?

November 12, 2013 – Darcy Hemstad, RN

Darcy Hemstad, RN, helps women and their husbands be healthy so they can be parents. To my way of thinking, infertility is not the disease but rather a symptom of some unhealthy condition/s in either the male, the female, or both. Again, to my way of thinking, there are three different ways that gynecological problems are treated: a) relief of symptoms by prescribing the birth control pill–typical gynecologist, b) diagnose and treat underlying problems with surgery and hormone therapy, primarily progesterone–NaProTechnology protocols established by Dr Tom Hilgers, and c) ART–Artificial Reproductive Technologies that ignore the underlying problems by resort to immoral human creation in the laboratory.

But Darcy has another way for treating gyn problems that indicate ill health and dysfunction including infertility. Her approach uses a combination of Billings Ovulation Method Charting and dietary changes to foster general good health, including natural fertility.

Every woman has experienced gyn problems or knows someone who has gyn problems, including infertility. I believe you will be amazed by her patient’s success testimonials, which you can see at thefertilitygirl.com

November 5, 2013 – Fr. Thomas Loya

// November 5th, 2013 // No Comments » // Quest for a Culture of Life in America

This week (as last week with Deacon Harold) we have a Radio Maria presenter as our Guest on the Quest. Fr Loya’s program–Beyond the Veil–is immediately before “The Quest . . .”. Every week when I call in I enjoy the tail end of “Beyond the Veil”. What I especially like about Fr Loya is his complete understanding of contraception’s disruption of families, society and the Church. I have asked Father to help us understand this phenomenon of the broader impact of contraception on our culture.

Because he is a Byzantine priest, we can learn something about the Orthodox branch of Christianity and efforts to reunite East and West so the Church may breath with both lungs–what a concept! What have recent popes done to reverse the Great Schism of 1054? What issues divide us? Why not unity?

Fr Loya promotes and teaches the Theology of the Body through the Tabor Life Institute. Thus he is one of many TotB teachers that have their own slant on blessed John Paul II’s work, and naturally there are some differences of interpretation and approach. If we have time we want to get Father’s perspective on these differences.
