Terminating a baby so mom can pursue a career is traumatic for both mother and child.
Why do we raise awareness about pregnancy and infant loss? Because once people know the truth, they can love others who are suffering.
These losses are common, but it can be hard to know what to say or not to say when a friend or family member experiences a miscarriage or infant death.
You cannot say one’s loss is easier or harder, better or worse than someone else’s, because you have no idea what they’re going through. Yet they—we—are not alone.
It seems logical for a person grieving a miscarriage to turn in hate towards those who choose to abort their unborn children. While this danger exists, reality is much more interesting.
There was my beautiful daughter on the screen, but next to her was the sac where here twin sibling had died. My great joy became intermingled with sorrow.
We’re a culture that is strong on the easy act of praise but weak on the hard work of encouragement. Human beings need more than that.
Our town’s commemoration of the Orlando terrorist attacks was well-attended, self-congratulatory, even festive. Its memorial for slain police officers was sparse and ambivalent.
Just as their mother was famous for championing causes society deemed taboo, Princess Diana’s kids William and Harry have made mental health a centerpoint of their outreach efforts.
Death is similar to birth in that, as commonplace as it is, it is one of the most significant things any of us has to go through, and each time it happens is different from every other time.
Gustav Mahler’s Tenth Symphony is about death, and acceptance. It released me from the memory of a day at Auschwitz.
The opportunity to sacrificially care for another is one of the most soul and life-enriching experiences a human being can have.
To accept abortion, we’ve had to divide personhood from the unborn. Yet in miscarriage, that false divide comes back to haunt us.
Miscarriage is one of the things in life that show we simply aren’t meant to know, control, and understand everything that happens.
Last Christmas, many times I asked when the pain would end, sometimes through desperate, angry tears. Here are some things that helped me and may help you.
Singing together is a powerful form of expressing and generating solidarity and resistance to evil. Christmas can help us regain our voices.
We celebrate celebrations while we sweep away grief. This doesn’t need to be. Communities can join both the happiness and mourning pregnancies can bring.
