Was at Mass this afternoon, and the deacon was giving the homily, and he started talking about a woman, Joanne Simpson, was struggling while in college with a pregnancy, and that, rather than have an abortion, she delivered the child, gave him up for adoption, and we all now now the rest of the story, since this boy was Steve Jobs and he was probably the greatest inventor of the Baby Boom generation.

Which lead to the inevitable - "What if.......", question. Since most people nowadays use computers, iPads Iphones,etc... which were attributable to him.

What if......

As famous adoptee John Lennon wrote "Imagine........". Imagine if only a portion of those millions of innocents had not been aborted, but adopted.

On an equally ironic matter, Planned Parenthood-sponsored clinics in Texas, now have to adhere to the same health standards as any other health facility in Texas.

The abortion industry says that these costs are "too punitive" and they will be forced to close many clinics.

Ironically, Planned Parenthood - which is taxpayer supported, btw, exists - so we're told, in order to make abortions "safe".

So, what's the problem?????

Someone's making an awful lot of money.........
