BlogsforTerri

  An very active and dedicated site respecting the sanctity and protection of life.

  "BlogsForTerri is committed to serving, defending and supporting individuals as the first and largest organized group of bloggers dedicated to a single issue - the protection and sanctity of life. Our focus [was] first on Terri Schiavo because she [was] a person in need, whose life [was] endangered by the growing acceptance of euthanasia in American society.

  The publicity of Terri's fight has made it a litmus test for the nation and has awakened the world to the prevalence of "mercy killing" of the disabled and elderly.

  The goal of BlogsforTerri is to defend the unalienable right of each person to life, endowed by the Creator, regardless of his or her age, disability or health status."

Family Life Center - St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers - Catholic Family, Courtship

"St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers (i.e. SJCK) is an informal international network of Christian men, under the patronage of St. Joseph, dedicated to strengthening the family. The primary thrust of St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers is to men who are fathers of children still living at home. However, we warmly welcome Christian men of all ages, callings, and states in life: grandfathers wanting to strengthen their children and grandchildren; single men preparing for the vocation of marriage; and especially pastors serving as indispensable spiritual fathers in the family of God. Participation is open to all men who agree with, and who are willing to promote, the eight commitments of St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers.

As St. Joseph's Covenant Keepers, we are not just concerned with our own families. We will also strive for a Christlike concern for the spiritual and material welfare of other families in our community, in our parish, and in other localities throughout the world."

Lifeissues.net:  - A simply superb site for all issues on life!

  "There are crucial issues that face us today: abortion, aids, bioethics, birth control, when life begins, population concerns, post-abortion healing, etc. But far too often our public debates are long on emotion and short on clear thinking. Along the way, respect for the dignity of human life gets lost in the rhetoric. Our purpose is to promote a 'Culture of Life' in which human freedom will find its authentic meaning by joining forces with truth, life and love. This culture 'needs new lifestyles which will show respect for the dignity of every individual, especially the weakest, and which will recognize the value of human sexuality in the development of the person.'
