Fr. Leo, We Love You!
(I turned this video off in a panic the first time I attempted to watch it. I had little kids looking over my shoulder and I thought I saw something inappropriate. I did not. Fr. Leo is a little cheeky, maybe, but not inappropriate.)
I am almost keeping up with myself.
Life! It’s happening! All around me! And I am almost keeping up!
1. First, Catholic Digest!
We are finishing up work on our re-launch March 2012 issue and making plans for April 2012 and beyond. I am so excited about the changes we are making and can’t wait to share it all with you. Make sure you are a subscriber so you don’t miss a thing!
2. Next, The Gist! We were in Boston this week, taping more episodes. This project has been such a fun learning process for me. Like any learning process, it has been made up of equal parts hilarity and humility so far.
Please like us Facebook to keep up with our conversations. You can watch all the episodes that have aired so far at CatholicTV.com. The most recent one, focused on confession and featuring the very funny Lino Rulli, is right here:
3. Finally, the March for Life! I will be in D.C. on Monday with my four oldest kids and other members of our parish youth group. Will you be there?
I will be on the Son Rise Morning Show a little after 6:00 am on Monday, checking in and sharing the experience.
I will have a pro-life piece up at the Washington Post on Monday as well (not sure I will be able to check back in and link it up from the road) that I hope you will check out and support with comments. I am told there will be a “pro-choice” piece running as well, so I hope our side can be well represented.
I also plan to tweet my way through the trip, so follow me on Twitter for more details.
#IAmProLife … are you?
Last week’s Twitter trend of tweeting “I had an abortion” started people talking about life issues on Twitter.
I wrote a column for the Washington Post that challenged the wisdom of women cheerfully tweeting about their abortions and shutting those who regret their abortions out of the conversation.
Then I was officially “in it” on Twitter.
I had some thoughtful conversations with people who disagree with me, but I was also treated to enough angry vitriol that I decided we could better serve the pro-life cause with positive action. So I asked pro-lifers on Twitter to use an #IAmProLife hashtag and tell us why. I will be re-tweeting people’s responses at my Twitter account all day today.
If you are on Twitter, please join us in making a positive statement in defense of the unborn. And encourage your followers to do the same. Let your pro-life voice be heard!

Is This Pro-Life Ad Too Graphic?
When I read that a pro-life message had been rejected for being “too graphic” I was sure this was some unfair liberal media bias being played out in the name of sensitivity. I rolled my eyes and clicked play.
But then I found the ad deeply disturbing.
Can We Discuss Abortion Without Politics?
Today at NCRegister, I’m talking about Bump+, the provocative made-for-internet television series:
Was this a real show? Were these real pregnant women leaving the “choice” about whether or not to allow their unborn babies to live in the hands of an internet audience? It all sounded like a bad made for TV movie, never mind a web TV series.
A little careful reading at their website, though, reveals that this is a “fake” reality television series. The characters we meet on the screen are played by actors—but we, the audience, really will determine the outcomes of these characters’ pregnancies. In other words, our votes will determine what choices the writers will have each of these characters make in this “fake” reality show.
