Mother Gives Birth in the Woods Alone

July 1st, 2015 Viewed 1399 times

Here’s an amazing story from California:

According to Pangborn’s mother, her daughter was nine months pregnant and decided to visit an Oroville casino Wednesday to walk around in an attempt to induce labor. Williams said her daughter was traveling to another area casino when she ended up on a remote road in the national forest and ran out of gas. There was no mobile phone reception, Williams said. Oroville is about 80 miles north of Sacramento.

Williams said her daughter told her she went into labor early Thursday morning, unrolled a sleeping bag and gave birth in her car’s backseat. Williams said Pangborn spent the next two days swatting away bees and insects, fearful of a bear attack. Mother and daughter survived on water and apples, Williams said.

On Saturday, Williams said Pangborn used a lighter, a can of hairspray and a can of oil to start a signal fire with the sleeping bag.

"She is smart and tough," Williams said. "I’m relieved it turned out all right."

French of the Forest Service said the fire burned about a quarter of an acre before it was extinguished. – Lost California mother rescued after giving birth in forest, family says

The Outcome of the Birth Control Generation

April 9th, 2015 Viewed 1103 times

In a post titled What will sex education sound like when the government sees a need to encourage young women to get pregnant?, Ann Althouse asks a great question:

What if, over time, with perfect reproductive freedom, the choice to avoid childbirth is far more popular than we’d ever imagined? One solution would be to back off from women’s freedom and equality, and I don’t like that. So the thought experiment is: Assume women will continue to have the power to avoid childbirth and complete freedom to exercise that power. Assume we agree that the birthrate must be increased. What can we do?

I’m guessing that society will have nothing that they can or should do.  If women need to be free and equal then there’s nothing to do.  This is not to say that we’re without hope.  Indeed, many women will choose to have larger families and will may choose not to want to vote or exercise feminism like the current brand of feminism, and those that choose not to reproduce will find that they no longer have the numbers and the power.

Pregnant And Beautiful

There’s something special about a pregnant woman.  It’s more than the glow, it’s the amazing feeling that there’s a new life growing inside.

When taken in this perspective, there’s a tiny miracle inside, and it’s something beautiful on the inside and the outside.

She’s Having Twins– How far along?

April 16th, 2008 Viewed 1277 times

Holly Here’s a family friend who moved away.  Her oldest son is 6 months younger than our oldest.  She’s having twins, but is facing some complications.  First off, she has placenta previa.  And if that doesn’t make it complicated, she’s due at the end of May but is on bed rest in the Hospital because they had to stop labor once already.

So, make sure you say a prayer for her and her babies as she’s away from her boys and tries to give her twins the best opportunity she can for survival.

And You Thought Life Began at Pregnancy

March 23rd, 2007 Viewed 2374 times

There is a lot of controversy today inside the Pro-Life movement about the pill and what it does and does not do.  You see, foundational to the Pro-Life movement is the concept that life begins at conception.  This has been, and continues to be, at the forefront of the argument of why abortion is murder.

The problem is that we have also been dealt a bit of sleight of hand from doctors and nurses as to what birth control pills do, and what they do not do.  You see, the documentation likes to use the term “pregnancy” in its exact definition, but I find that it’s often not the definition that the woman thinks it is.

Birth Control pills (like Plan B, the emergency contraception pill) work in one of two ways.  They either prevent the woman from releasing the egg, or they prevent the fertilized egg from attaching to the wall of the uterus and continuing its growth.  The first is not a problem for Pro-Lifers, the second one should be.  You see, the second means that life was conceived that the woman (using the pill) caused not to be able to survive.  She caused her baby to die.
