This week’s episode:
“Blessed are They”: Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity
“Among Women” Guest: Nan Balfour
This week we look at at the gift of faith and what it means to fall in love with God. In our “Blessed are They” segment, we pray along with Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity — whose faith was wrapped up in love of the Holy Trinity. Then in our “Among Women” segment, I converse with Nan Balfour, a leader with the Pilgrim Center of Hope, and conference coordinator for the Catholic Women’s Conference in San Antonio. Nan shares pivotal conversion moments in her life — a life of on-going conversion — and how they led her to what she does now.

I think doctors performing sterilization surgeries on newly postpartum women is one of the most unethical practices in use today. Even if consent is obtained repeatedly, the woman is in an extreme hormonal state and is in no place to make permanent decisions about childbearing. It should be standard practice to delay these surgeries until after the postpartum period, but doctors seem to be more concerned about convenience than sound decision making.
