I’m an ordinary Australian mother, really.
I started to get actively involved in pro-life work a couple of years ago. But I guess I was doing pro-life work before that: I raised thirteen biological children and helped out with my stepdaughter from time to time. We home-schooled for over twenty years. (If you’d like to learn about how I first became pro-life then click here.)
In 2015, we moved from Tasmania to Victoria, and I’m now studying a theology course at Melbourne’s Catholic Theological College, and hope to teach high-school one day.
I pray outside abortion centres when I can, and have been known to pray inside buffer-zones on occasion.
My Bishop even gave me a blessing before a group of us challenged the Tasmanian buffer-zone law.
How did I come to start a website?
I sometimes ask myself the same thing: I guess I’m just a mother who wanted to promote the culture of life from my home, and a pro-lifer who one day realised that if we want to end abortion, and all the ills that our sick death-culture promotes, then we need to become saints.
Sanctity needs be our priority.
This isn’t to say that we aren’t meant to be active in pro-life work – far from it: it’s an affront to God to think that all we have to do is pray; that is complacency. There is no sacrifice in that, unless someone is a cloistered contemplative, or house-bound through sickness or caught up in the early days of raising a young family.
But prayer should precede our actions, and we also need to be formed in the Faith in order to evangelise, judge legislation, interact with abortion advocates and co-operate with other pro-life people. This is because building the Culture of Life begins at home.

As St. John Paul II said of abortion:
It is difficult to imagine a more unjust situation, and it is very difficult to speak of obsession in a matter such as this, where we are dealing with a fundamental imperative of every good conscience – the defense of the right to life of an innocent and defenseless human being.
We are already doing the most important work – let’s do it in the most effective way.
