Poverty--Babies--And the March For Life

I feel in my soul that there are abortions happening in America within married couples because they are afraid that having baby number three, baby number four, or baby number five is going to make them less rich than they are currently.

I think as Catholics, we've done a great job talking about the morality of life starting at conception.

I've read many inspiring posts talking about the Italian saying "every baby comes with a loaf of bread under his arm."

What I haven't heard someone write about yet --is that even if you're not perfect with your money management as the parent of a larger than average American family--that its not the end of the world. The bad days of feeling "poor", really aren't that bad. God is real. God helps us follow his will.

The change to becoming a better money manger is gradual and sometimes uneven, like all spiritual growth.

Yet its not that hard. It's not that embarrassing. And its really, really worth the effort.
