A Helper of God's Precious Infants

Those who know me in cyberspace and in the real world generally are aware of my profound belief that life begins at conception and ends only when God decides and not anyone else. The misguided might use the term “pro-life radical” to describe people like me.

While pro-lifers are generally identified by their opposition to abortion, their life begins at conception beliefs cover a longer lifespan than just unborn infants. Many pro-lifers, like me, oppose any form of euthanasia or comfort killing, including any health care proposal seeking to deny lifesaving medical care to anyone just because they are elderly and likely soon to die. Many pro-lifers, like me, also oppose capital punishment. These are beliefs that make us the target of mean-spirited gestures and words in debates and other interactions with those who believe differently. I’ve seen more middle-finger variations than you can imagine because of my pro-life beliefs.

Currently, I’m involved in the front-end of the pro-life world by praying, encouraging and offering support to pregnant mothers that they will choose life for their unborn infants rather than abortion. Here are two past Pierini Fitness blogflections where I’ve written about my pro-life activities:

Here’s an amateur video I recently produced for use in promoting our local Helpers of God’s Precious Infants' apostolate:

So besides being the self-appointed ambassador of middle-age men around the world and a middle-age man fitness dude, I’m also a Helper of God’s Precious Infants.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum

I'm firmly pro-choice...

I believe that if you don't want to have children, if you're not prepared to have children, then you should be able to choose to NOT have sex.


Oh, wait, that wasn't what pro-choice people want to hear. They want the get-out-of-jail-free card that legal abortion offers.

Gee, I wonder why those with a legit moral compass are pro-life. It covers a lot more immoral ground than people realize

Thanks for your visits fellas and prayers go out that pregnant mothers choose life for their unborn infants because all life is precious and life really does begin at conception.

Have a great weekend and hug your Mom and Dad for choosing your life.

Thank you, gentlemen, for firmly Defending Life, from natural conception to natural death~ Our family just watched the movie "Come What May", which clearly defines the moral, biological, and legal reasons why Roe v. Wade must be overturned. I highly recommend this movie, which emphasizes the message "Do what is RIGHT, regardless of cost!", a true rarity in today's world.

I do, Ed. My parents were 17 when they had me. They kept me and they're still married to this day. I'm very fortunate
