I cracked open the July copy of the Chatelaine magazine and my eyes fell upon the headline: Tommy’s Story. One woman shares her harrowing choice to end her pregnancy and say goodbye to the unborn son she already loved. “Whoa”, I thought. “This should be interesting.”

Earlier this week, I was asked on a radio program what I as a pro-life activist had to say about Father’s Day. My answer was simple: Where are all the fathers?

On the back of yet another tragic case of human pain and suffering, some abortion advocates try to push through their agenda of widespread access to killing the littlest amongst us. The recent health problems of a pregnant woman and her pre-born child in El Salvador have been drawing worldwide attention—and some abortion advocates are riding on that attention to legalize something both unethical and unnecessary.

The passing of abortion pioneer Henry Morgentaler has provoked many reactions on all fronts of the abortion fight. The Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada rejoiced darkly that Morgentaler “did not ‘repent’ or have a ‘deathbed conversion,’ or make things ‘right with his maker.’” My colleague Stephanie Gray noted that Dr. Morgentaler’s death necessitates, as the passing of any fellow human does, an examination of what we are doing with our brief allotment of time on Earth.

I remember very distinctly walking through a department store one day when I was fourteen. Suddenly I was very aware of what the radio was playing. To most people it was any old song – background music as they shopped. For me though, it was the song from my friend’s funeral, the song that will be always attached to those memories. I was frozen. No one wants a sudden rush of painful emotions, especially in a public place, but it happens to most (if not all) of us at some time.

The name “Goering” instantly brings to mind the unarguably evil and grotesquely overweight Hermann Goering, founder of the Gestapo, leader of the Luftwaffe, and arguably second in power in Nazi Germany, only to Adolf Hitler himself. However, there is another Goering that has been all but forgotten by history—one who passionately hated Hitler, Nazism, and all that the minions of the twisted cross stood for. He was Albert Goering, Hermann’s younger brother.

Another infamous Canadian abortionist has died. The Vancouver Province reported that Dr. Garson Romalis died from illness on January 30, incidentally almost a full pregnancy gestation since abortionist Henry Morgentaler died last May 29. When I learned of Dr. Romalis’ death, I couldn’t help but recall our encounter sitting in his medical office more than a decade ago when I was an 18-year-old UBC student.

As it turns out, a zoo is the perfect place to hide people. Before World War II, the Warsaw Zoo rivaled any of the great European zoos. Its director, Jan Zabinski and his wife Antonia, devoted themselves to shaping the zoo into a well-respected institution and to the care of its animals. Jan was a renowned zoologist who was often in demand at conferences across Europe. Visitors to the Warsaw Zoo could see penguins, wolves, hyenas, peacocks, rhinos, lions and even a baby elephant--the first to be born in a Polish zoo.

When the gunshots began to ring out in the halls of Sandy Hook Elementary School, 27-year-old teacher Victoria Soto leapt into action. According to one report, she bundled her little students into the closet, and then faced Adam Lanza, the 20-year-old armed madman, informing him that her students had gone to the gym. Another source reports that she was found huddled over her students, protecting them to the last. Either way, we know this: She died protecting her students. Adam Lanza shot her dead, and then killed himself.
