There are some fascinating reports today:

Be sure to read the wonderful story of a baby save and the courageous actions by Lila Rose and her Live Action team at World Youth Day in Spain.

There is wonderful news about the historic Polish pro-life bill that is still very much alive despite a recent setback.

Yet another Planned Parenthood manager has become a pro-life advocate. Hurrah!

Not only did the staff of Notre Dame, the most beautiful Catholic basilica in North America, refuse to allow the Crossroads Canada youth access to the Church this year, we now report that the 2010 group was also denied access. The Archdiocese of Montreal reportedly told local media that the story of this year’s restricting of the pro-life youth is untrue. One of the group is a former LifeSiteNews summer intern. We got the whole story from the horse’s mouth, as they say. Not just from our former intern, but also directly from other Crossroads members. There is not a shred of doubt that what we reported was entirely accurate. This has been just one more of many signs that it is time for a major change in Church leadership in Quebec. And you know what - it is happening. Patience. Rome is finally acting.
