People Are Now Using E-Cigarettes To Vape Their Vitamins

Forget smoking nicotine, cannabis, and even Viagra. The latest fad is to vape vitamins. That’s right – the tobacco industry is now rebranding itself with a new, “healthy” image to appeal to a wellness-orientated generation.  When e-cigs first hit the market, they were sold as a healthy alternative to traditional cigarettes with one study in 2015 claiming they were “around 95 percent less harmful”. The jury’s still out on exactly how much healthier they are and more recent studies have also linked vaping to lung inflammation, cancer, immune system repression, and windpipe damage.  And so, while the consensus is that they probably are better for you than regular cigarettes, the vaping industry is changing tack. Several companies are now selling e-juice concoctions made from …

Pro-life women drop some magical birth canal science in honor of #NationalUnicornDay (video)

We’ve often wondered when a fetus becomes a baby. Sometimes it hits the news early, like, “Kate Middleton is going to have another baby!” Women hold baby showers for fetuses that haven’t passed through the birth canal yet. The common thread seems to be if the woman is happy about being pregnant and wants to have the child, it’s a baby; if the woman didn’t intend to become pregnant and doesn’t want to give birth, it’s a clump of cells or a fetus. In honor of #NationalUnicornDay, the folks at Choice42 (“choice for two”) put together a video explaining the magical process that happens inside the birth canal that turns a fetus into a living human being … though not even …

When the Wages of Sin Are a Baby

ShareTweetPinterest Her weeping came ahead of her presence, causing my heart to pound. As a mom of three, it wasn’t the first time a crying child had entered our bedroom hours after we thought they’d gone to sleep. My mind went racing through the evening, then over to her to find the trouble, so I could do what I’d done so many times: soothe the hurt, ease the fear, or comfort her in sickness. The familiar words tumbled quickly from me, “Baby, what’s wrong?” But I had absolutely no context for what she’d say next. She’d just finished her first semester at college, had found a great job, had made sweet friends, and had found a place to serve in a …
