Blog break...

I'm fleeing the Eternal City for some R&R... don't expect any updates until late next week...

In the news...
Red roses are on the banned list in Saudi Arabia.
There's an article in the Telegraph about the 'New Ten Commandments'. There's also a report on the only Muslim chaplain with the American Army in Iraq.
The Times has this amazing story of a abortion surviver:
A BABY survived at least three attempts to abort it from the womb and was born alive at 24 weeks old.
The boy was delivered in hospital after his 24- year-old mother changed her mind about wanting the child after feeling it move on the way home from an abortion clinic.
Although the clinic had told her an ultrasound scan had confirmed the child was dead, she went into labour that afternoon and the boy was born alive.
Now two years old and healthy, he is the first long-term abortion survivor to have been born so prematurely. His remarkable entrance into the world is documented in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
