Hi, this is my blog for all sorts of pro-life news, statistics, stories, and personal ventings. I am a wife and mother, as well as a nursing student. I I truly believe that abortion has failed women, and will continue to do so as long as it is legal.

The Most Hurtful Thing I've Been Told.

I just saw a picture of the MoD walk of a little white boy in a shirt that said "I'm not a wimpy white boy!". I imagine the reason for this shirt's existence is because, statistically, caucasian males have the lowest survival rates of any demographic when born prematurely.

The second I saw that shirt I was brought back to the days leading up to Holden's birth. My mother, in "girl-power" glee informed me OVER and OVER again that "african american girls have the highest survival rates and white boys have the lowest!" "girl-power".

Great...except for the fact that I was about to give birth to a "scrawny white boy". Even now it hurts that my mom put her enjoyment of feminism over the reality of our situation.
