It would be too hard for me to list all the stories in the Catholic press this week timed to next Tuesday’s anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision. But here are some examples that have come across my desk:
— The Catholic Spirit in St. Paul, Minn., offers one of the best stories I’ve seen about sidewalk counseling at an abortion clinic. Covering that story also almost got the paper’s staff photographer in trouble, as detailed here in a great first-person account. There’s also an interesting story about a former abortion clinic guard whose change of heart put him on the other side of the fence.
— Speaking of change of hearts, the story of a couple who felt pressured to have the woman’s tubes tied after the birth of their sixth child, but then decided to have the operation reversed so they could have a seventh, is lovingly detailed by The Georgia Bulletin in Atlanta.
