Parenthood is bad for your health: study - The Globe and Mail

Parenthood is bad for your health: study - The Globe and Mail


  1. Hmmm. No mention of how NOT parenting (depending on why you are not parenting, of course) can be bad for your health...risks of "The Pill", abortion.

    And where did they find these parents? The ones I hang around with were VERy careful what they and their families ate...and sugar ranked right up there with dirt as far as welcome food additives go.

  2. Scientists have determined that insanity is hereditary. Parents inherit it from their children. :->

  3. I actually see evidence of this every day, JP. Even moms who are careful what they feed to their offspring are not so careful when it comes to themselves. They rationalize that "just this once," a sugar-loaded snack or drink won't hurt them, when they're rushed off their feet, have no time to prepare their own food carefully, and hunger pangs are making them edgy and snappish. And then, of course, "just this once" did not hurt that once, so it probably won't hurt again...and then it becomes routine.

    Yes, parenting can be bad for your health.

Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

Canadian Euthanasia Information

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. The overwhelming defeat of Bill C-384 proved that we can Push-Back the euthanasia lobby in the US and Canada and convince people that euthanasia and assisted suicide are a dangerous public policy. Register for the Seminar at: The Schindler family are being attacked by a Florida television station and Michael Schiavo. The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition is standing in solidarity with the Schindler family. My blog comments:
