“Response to: Rick Santorum, Meet My Son”

Response to: Rick Santorum, Meet My Son (I would have aborted him had I known better)

In a recent article on Slate.com a mom talks write to Sen Santorum about how if she knew better about his condition, she would have aborted her son. I ask a nurse friend and advisor to write a response, here it is as she submitted it to us: 

Bryan Kemper, The Youth Outreach Director of Priests for Life asked me to write a response to a mom who expressed a wish that she had known her son had a severe disease prenatally so that she could have an abortion and how that interfaces with Rick Santorum’s argument that prenatal testing be lessened as much/most of it resulted in abortions. I am a nurse who works with families who learn prenatally that their children are very sick and will most likely die at birth.  As I need my job, please indulge me in the disclaimer that in this piece, I speak only my opinion and not that of any employer or colleague.   Continue reading here

Novena ~ Saint Giuseppe Moscati

The novena to St. Joseph Moscati begins today November 7th – 15th… Celebrate his feast day November 16 by going to Mass and praying for your physician and those in the medical field.  May you be blessed by his prayers and intercession.

 

 “Dear St Joseph Moscati, true model of Christian doctors, in the exercise of your medical profession, you always took care of both the body and soul of every patient.  Look on us, who have recourse to your heavenly intercession, and obtain for us both physical and spiritual health, and a share in the dispensation of heavenly favors. Soothe the pains of our suffering people; give comfort to the sick, consolation to the afflicted and hope to the despondent.  May our young people find in you an ideal, our workers an example, the aging a comfort, the dying the hope of eternal salvation.  To all of us be a pattern of industriousness, honesty and charity; so we may comply with our Christian duties and glorify God our Father.” Amen
