Who We Are:

We are women, we are wives, we are mothers, and we are open to life. This is our way of standing by one another, learning from each other, and leaning on Christ our Savior.

You Go Girl!

I'm often inspired and given so much hope when I hear about women like Jeanne. Every woman is called to fight for life - whether it is by having children, working in politics to save children from abortion, or taking time to speak to the grocery lady why life is valuable. Each woman is entrusted with preserving the dignity of humanity : ) says John Paul II.

How cool is she?! Read her info and article below.

FDA Places Politics Above Science, Women's Health, and Informed Consent

Washington, DC - This afternoon the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Advisory Panel considering the new "Emergency Contraceptive," Ella, which can also act as an abortifacient, voted against recommending ANY precautions or labeling that would inform women of the drug's abortifacient capabilities as well as health risks.

Jeanne Monahan, Family Research Council's Director of the Center for Human Dignity , released the following statement:

"The FDA is placing politics above science, women's health and informed consent. Family Research Council calls upon the Obama Administration and the FDA to make good on their promise of transparency and honesty. Women deserve to know that this drug can take a life that has already been implanted as well as the serious health risks it imposes, including infection and bleeding. Women's health should not be jeopardized just to advance the agenda of the abortion industry."
