In the first stage of my career I was working in a small community hospital. A coworker was working in the operating room. She finished her shift very distraught about what she had witnessed. ROE vs WADE was in practice. What had occurred was life altering to many.When I moved to Pittsburgh I heard of…

From Neelie

Losing my mother to insidious brain disease brought me to my knees and opened my eyes to an inescapable truth: every day, and every moment, of every life is a sacred and precious gift from God.

My “why story” begins when I was in seventh grade. A volunteer – who happened to be the mother of another student in the class – came to our classroom to encourage the students to make the trip down to Washington D.C. to peacefully and prayerfully protest abortion at the “March for Life.” In her…
