Come Visit Me!

And we'll go to the Boston College Pro-Life Conference together! It'll be great! You'll be able to see my genius of a philosophy professor, Peter Kreeft, as the keynote speaker!

Then I will buy you icecream.

And maybe a pony.

The point is, you should come! Alex -- book a flight now! Bring your girlfriend! We'll paint Davis Square with red pro-life roses and hassle the liberals in Harvard Yard. It'll be a riot. New Yorkers, take the Fung Wah. It won't blow up, I promise -- I took it just last weekend and here I am, in O'Neill Library, tapping out my desperate plea.

Seriously, though, if you'd like to come to the BC Pro-Life Conference, as anyone and everyone is more than welcome, please send me an e-mail. I'll even provide you with a place to sleep, free of charge! Though, we might have to forget about the pony, then...

Greatest. Comment. Ever.

In response to the American Girl scandal, some anonymous robot has some pretty intelligent things to bring to the table. For instance:

Help me Dude, I'm lost. I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation, You give me strength to carry on

"Strange day or what? :-)

So illuminating!

I think this might have to go into my profile or something -- by far the most creative robot comment I've seen. Bravo!

I Always Knew Samantha Had Something Up Her Sleeve...

Email from the Pro-Life Action League. This is messed up. I never liked American Girl, anyway. Too girly. This is interesting, though. And a $50,000 donation is a pretty big deal. Better tell my mom to stop buying those stupid "Samantha's Christmas Gingerbread House" kits for my sister (SUCH a waste of money! Why not make an edible, *human sized* gingerbread house?!).


Dear Pro-Life Friend,

Last month we had to picket my old high school for inviting a pro-abortion politician to speak at an alumnae function. Now it looks like next month we may have to picket on of my little girls' favorite spots in downtown Chicago, the American Girl Place.

Thanks to a tip from a pro-life mom, we learned that American Girl's "I Can" self-esteem campaign is linked to Girls Inc., a group with a distinctly anti-family agenda. The program involves a pledge, which is innocent enough, and the purchase of an "I Can" bracelet.

The bracelets cost $1, of which 70ยข goes to Girls Inc., along with a $50,000 donation from American Girl. What's so bad about Girls Inc.? For starters, they support abortion. In their own word: "Girls Incorporated supports a woman's freedom of choice, a constitutional right established by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1973 in Roe vs. Wade." (Source:

They also condone lesbianism, actively lobby against abstinence-only sex-ed programs, and demand access to birth control for girls. We're calling on parents, grandparents and other family members to call and write American Girl Company President Ellen L. Brothers to sever all links to Girls Inc. immediately:

Ellen L. Brothers, President
American Girl
8400 Fairway Place
Middleton, WI 53562
Tel: 1-800-845-0005
Fax: 608-828-4790

We hope American Girl will realize that their association with Girls Inc. tarnishes their wholesome image, and that we will not have call for a boycott of their products or picket their retail stores in Chicago or New York. But if we have to, that's what we'll do.

Yours for Life,

Hey all, I've updated the sidebar a bit to include Slant, the Boston College Pro-Life Society's website, and a few other links that might be of interest. Went to the Massachusetts Citizens for Life Respect Life Walk today with a bunch of pro-life college students from all over Boston -- a terrific event! We are thinking about putting together a Cemetery of the Innocents here at BC, sometime next spring. I figured, if we're going to do it here, I could help you guys get in touch with the people who supply the materials, in case you wanted to put the Cemetery together at NYU as well. There are, of course, several problems with doing this at NYU, a major one being ... a lack of ... space. Perhaps the Kimmel Center might serve as a place for some kind of display venue... Anyway, it's an idea worth kicking around, and hopefully I can help out with the practical aspect, since we're doing it in Boston anyway.

I certainly miss Thursday nights at the Catholic Center, all you Newmanites.

Alex, does the Pro-Life club at Ave Maria have a website? Put it in the sidebar!

David, you mentioned another college's pro-life club wanted us to update their website on our sidebar. Which one was it?

That's all for now -- more soon.

God bless,
