NEW YORK, August 2, 2007 (C-FAM.org) - At the latest round of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) Committee meetings in New York, members of the CEDAW committee criticized Hondurans for their pro-life laws, telling their delegation that the total ban on abortions is a crime. Committee member Heisoo Shin told the Honduran delegation that it was necessary for the government to create a momentum, a social force that stops the crime that allows a woman to die, to risk unsafe abortion and not have self-determination.
When the Honduran delegation responded that government efforts were aimed at prevention of early and unwanted pregnancies, CEDAW member Silvia Pimentel, faculty member at the Pontifical Catholic University of Sao Paulo, fired back that the government had been as comprehensive as possible on prevention and that there are situations where prevention is not enough. She continued, Women have their reasons to seek an abortion, which should be respected. Pimentel admitted that those reasons did not always include a threat to the mothers life, but that she could not understand the abortion ban in Honduras where the interests of the fetus outweigh those of the mother.
Hartford, CT (LifeNews.com) -- Police investigating a kidnapping and sexual abuse case in Connecticut have confirmed that a Planned Parenthood abortion business did an abortion on a 15 year-old girl who is the victim. The news is the latest in a string of cases across the country where abortions have been used to cover up cases of sexual abuse.
Authorities say the unnamed girl ran away from home last June to live with 41 year-old Adam Gault, who has plead guilty to a variety of charges in connection with the kidnapping and alleged sexual abuse.
After getting her pregnant, Gault reportedly took the girl to a Planned Parenthood in West Hartford where she had an abortion.
Wichita, KS (LifeNews.com) -- The controversial late-term abortion facility in Wichita is closed this weekend next while abortion practitioner George Tiller is arraigned on charges he did illegal abortions. Tiller has been charged by the state's attorney general with violating a law requiring the signature of a doctor vouching that the abortion is medically necessary.
Tiller is scheduled to be arraigned next Tuesday on 19 criminal counts of doing abortions in violation of the law and he could face 19 years in jail if convicted and sentenced to the maximum prison time.
As a result of the legal proceedings, Tiller is temporarily closing his Women's Health Care Services abortion business and referring women to abortion centers in Kansas City and Oklahoma.
thank you for #639 and 640! Blessings!
Wagglebee, That is exactly what I will do. I will start a memorial thread right away but please forgive me if I need to catch my breath.
Tim and I have been spending lots of private time discussing our own mortality in recent months and in our visits, would dwell on things to come.
He will be buried with his family in Wisconsin.
His wife filled me in today on what had happened and on his powerful last wish that the work of his life continue with all the force Our Lord may allow, to continue the fight for pro life and Terri's Legacy.
After I rest a bit,, I will fill in on details but all just know this. Nothing could be more important to his memory than for us to carry on as before.
His wife asked me to pass on if any one would care to send anything, to please send a donation to the Terri Schindler Schiavo Foundation that they may be able just a bit more to continue Terri's Legacy.
For now, I am asking all your prayers for his wife and family and for Tim's soul. My wife and I lost a precious friend...
"We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience. The White Rose will give you no rest."
8mm, prayers going up! I am deeply touched.
What did T’wit do for the National Review?
Please tell us more about his life, what you can share.
Tim would be shy that I divulge his role which was great, but now I will put together more. I will be starting a new thread. A hallmark of Tim was his modesty in disclosing his amazing talents and skills.
I will tell more on the new thread. It is still a shock that he won’t be here to respond to my post this morning.
(various ways to help... now and in the future. This is about saving lives not funding useless politicians.
I gave my time to Terri. I will be doing more someday, following in t'wit's footsteps.
Terri's freepers KNOW who need help and let's keep going.
