This morning’s "Morning Edition" had a segment on writer Elizabeth McCracken and her new book about her first child who died in utero. It is the kind of story that will make pro-choice advocates re-think their position and is a perfect example of how we in the pro-life community can change the culture to better reflect the reality of pre-natal human life.

And, on today’s "Tell Me More" with Michel Martin, your humble political blogger was a guest discussing the leading religious stories of 2008. The show airs at different times in different markets, so check your local NPR listings. You can also listen when they post the webcast at noon EST by clicking here
