    Recently, staff from the Albert McMahon Elementary School in Mission, British Columbia, sent a letter to the studentsí parents and guardians, indicating the cancellation of events related to the holidays, particularly those in the classroom involving the making of gifts to be later given at home. The full letter reads as follows: "As Motherís Day and Fatherís Day approach we have met as a Primary (Grade 1 and 2) team to discuss our core values. In an effort to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and also nurture our students who are part of nontraditional families, we have decided to encourage those celebrations...

    Sometime in the womb, as we evolve over months from a single-celled organism into the complex mass of neurons and flesh that we recognize as ourselves, an awareness of our place in the world emerges. The world as we begin to know it is a warm, liquid soup, filled with nutrients and enveloped in a thin translucent film. The steady drum of a heartbeat just outside the womb begins to set the pace of your own fledgling heart. An umbilical cord connected directly to our tiny bellies pipes in nourishment to fuel our rapid growth. And then bam! In a...

    Motherís Day is a joyous observance for most of the 85 percent of women who have borne a child by age 40. But not so much for women who have neither procreated nor adopted, who find Motherís Day a painful reminder of their childlessness. Perhaps they squandered years on a relationship that resulted in neither marriage nor children. Perhaps they were so career-driven they had no room in their lives for a husband and offspring. Or perhaps they wed and tried to have children, but their wombs were barren. For women of faith despairing on this Motherís Day that they...

  • Itís time to get rid of Motherís Day: Teitel (BARF)

    American social activist Anna Jarvis may be the mother of Motherís Day (Jarvis founded the holiday in the United States in the early 1900s, in honour of her own late mother). But historians are unanimous about one thing: Jarvis was no fan of her offspring. This is because when Jarvis launched the movement to establish a day recognizing mothers she did not envision the pink, floral, commercial behemoth the holiday would grow up to become. What did Jarvis envision for Motherís Day? Moms working together for a better world. Jarvis hoped that the holiday would develop into a day of...

Shontrell Yurmeish Murphy, 30, hit the child ďreally hard a few timesĒ in the back, front, and side of his head on Thursday, the victimís sister said in an arrest warrant obtained by WSPA. Responding police were purportedly met by the grandmother and two childrenóone of which was crying.

    Itís said that the most powerful word in any language is ďmother.Ē I believe thatís true, not just for the effect we have on our children when they are small, but because mothering never ends. As every mom of adult children can attest, love for our sons and daughters only increases with time. You come to love them more and more as unique individuals who you can learn from, too. My own awesome three adult children have expanded my world and thinking as Iíve watched them pursue their own unique gifts ó gifts I just donít have. I so enjoy...

Gaylor asked.After the call, Gaylor opened a checkbook for the Women's Medical Fund, a Madison nonprofit that has helped pay for abortions for 34 years. Gaylor has written every check for every abortion.This was No. 18,986.Controversial figureGaylor is well-known for...
  • Motherís Day Is Not The Time To Justify Your Abortion

    05/12/2016 8:40:24 PM PDT · by Morgana · 8 replies ^ | May 6, 2016 | Nicole Russell recently published an article by Jenny Kutner titled ďWomen Who Have Had Abortions on Why Theyíre Proud Not to be Moms on Motherís Day.Ē Kutner relates the anecdotes of four women who have had abortions. Unfortunately, the title and article are misleading, to say the least. These four women express regret, pain, and confusion about their abortions, demonstrating both the failed feminist philosophy that drives the pro-choice movement and the powerful reasons to be pro-life. In Kutnerís article, Heather, 42, describes her abortion experience this way. ďI have never doubted that abortion was the right decision for me at...

    Shamelessness evidently is heritable, although it is not clear whether nature or nurture is at play in the case of Chelsea Clinton. The Hillary campaign still needs money to fight Bernie Sanders, whose position in the upcoming Western primaries threatens to embarrass her even more, and make her margin of victory at the Philadelphia convention all too visibly dependent on the Big Fix, aka superdelegates. And relying on her Wall Street fat cat donors looks even worse. Hence the need to prattle on about motherhood as a reason to support a woman who has pursued the worldly goals of money...

    Growing up in Marion County, S.C., in the 1970s, I could not at the time appreciate the incredible wonders of my mother, Thelma Howard Williams. She never thought she would marry and in her 30s was living at home with her father, Armstrong Howard. My father, James Williams, had been married to Theola Livingston and had four children.In giving birth to the fourth child, Theola died while in labor. This was January 1957, and my father desperately needed a wife to raise those four children and bring stability to the household while he worked the family farm. He knew my...

    Both my parents have passed on. My mother died of diabetes complications back in 1994. My dad lasted far longer, and passed away last year due to heart ailments. They were married for 49 years. Dad decided on his own to never remarry. As children, my siblings and I would meet in the basement to discuss what to give my mom for her Mother's Day gift. Usually, most the duties were taken up by the same two kids, the oldest two. While the younger two children would contribute their ideas on color, size and if it was candy, what type...
