    New Delhi, India (LifeNews.com) -- A new report released on Tuesday by the United Nations agency UNICEF finds that India's practice of abortion on female unborn children is still alarmingly high. The report indicates 7,000 fewer female babies are born every day because parents can determine the sex of their unborn baby and kill her before birth. The study shows that, in 80 percent of India's districts, a higher percentage of boys are born now than a decade ago. The report cites the increased availability of cheap ultrasound technology as playing a role despite attempts by the India government to...

    In Canada, having an abortion is supposed to be all about "choice." A woman's health after she exercises that choice is a subject no one wants to talk about. But things are different in other countries. On Oct. 27, 15 prominent signatories wrote a letter to the editor of the Times of London. The group included a past president of the Royal College of Psychiatrists. Others were some of the top general practitioners, psychiatrists and obstetricians and gynecologists in the country. They asked the official bodies regulating obstetricians and psychiatrists to revise their guidance on abortion as it pertains to...

    I have been a pediatrician in Rapid City for 26 years now. During those 26 years it has been my job and privilege to attend the births of many infants whose pregnancies were complicated in various ways: prematurety, infections, toxemia, multiple births among many others. My job is to care for the infant and give him or her the best chance at a whole and satisfying life. Sadly medical technology and my own skills have not always been up to the task, but the intent was to give the baby the best care available. I want to tell you from...

    A new research project is raising serious doubt about claims from abortion supporters who say pro-lifers are violent people. The study suggests that, despite their assertions to the contrary, pro-choicers may be the more frequent perpetrators of violence.Throughout the abortion debate in America, pro-abortion activists have accused pro-lifers of spreading violence; however, Human Life International's senior analyst, Brian Clowes, has just completed a project that suggests the complete opposite is the case. "Seven murders are carried out by so called pro-life people in the time period 1993 to 1998," he notes, "and yet we've documented over 500 murders done by...

    ST. LOUIS (CNS) -- St. Louis Archbishop Raymond L. Burke will issue a pastoral letter following his comments in a radio interview that Catholics commit a mortal sin by knowingly voting for a candidate who advocates abortion. "It is a serious sin," Archbishop Burke told The St. Louis Review, newspaper of the St. Louis Archdiocese. He added that a person who voted that way could receive Communion only after a "true repentance" and obtaining absolution by going to confession. "It's not right to support candidates who are for abortion," he added. The archbishop was in Rome to receive the pallium...

    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...

    Among the facts about partial-birth abortion: It is never necessary to save the life of the mother; rather, it exposes women to additional and substantial health risks. Former Surgeon General Koop explained that, "Partial birth abortion is never medically necessary to protect a mother's health or her future fertility." Women who undergo partial birth abortion risk uterine rupture, abruption, amniotic fluid embolus, trauma to the uterus, iatrogenic laceration, secondary hemorrhage and infertility. Warren Hern, MD, abortion practitioner and author of "Abortion Procedure," commented, "I have very serious reservations about this procedure.... You really can't defend it.... I would dispute any...

    Harvesting Those Fetal Body Parts By Kelly Patricia O'Meara Scientists depend on human body parts for research they believe may yield breakthroughs in a number of diseases, such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, that affect millions of people. But the public largely is unaware of the way the laundry list of body parts for scientific research is filled. Those who oppose using human flesh for research wonder if knowing the gruesome details would make a difference to those who support the practice. Actual requests for body parts such as a "whole intact leg, including the entire hip joint," come with special...

    Having an abortion almost doubles a woman's risk of giving birth dangerously early in a later pregnancy, according to research that will provoke fresh debate over the most controversial of all medical procedures. A French study of 2,837 births - the first to investigate the link between terminations and extremely premature births - found that mothers who had previously had an abortion were 1.7 times more likely to give birth to a baby at less than 28 weeks' gestation. Many babies born this early die soon after birth, and a large number who survive suffer serious disability. The research leader,...

Researchers at University of California at Irvine injected stem cells derived from the brains of human foetuses into mice with severe spinal cord injuries. The mice regained some mobility and the research team is cautiously hopeful that this experiment will lead to progress with spinal cord injuries in humans. The stem cells were derived from babies aborted at about 16 to...

    For every 100 babies born in New York City, women had 74 abortions in 2004, according to newly released figures that reaffirm the city as the abortion capital of the country. And abortions for out-of-town women performed in the city increased from 57 to 70 out of every 1,000 between 1996 and 2004, a subtle yet noticeable trend that experts say may reflect growing hurdles against the procedure in more conservative parts of the country.The new Vital Statistics report released by the city Department of Health this month shows there were 124,100 live births, 11,700 spontaneous abortions and 91,700 induced...

    Professor Robert P. George is pacing around a Princeton auditorium before 200-plus undergraduates, preparing to wage an intellectual shock-and-awe campaign against illogical thinking. “Some politicians say that they’re ‘personally opposed’ to abortion, yet ‘pro-choice,’” says the 48-year-old professor of constitutional law and moral philosophy. “But we must ask: Is this a position that can survive the test of logical coherence? After all, if abortion is wrong, surely it is wrong because it is the unjust taking of the life of a developing human being.” He pauses to let that sink in and then launches another question: “And if one believes...

    While Americans continue to struggle with the moral and legal issues surrounding partial-birth abortion, the Europeans have moved on to legalizing euthanasia for fully born children. Call it retroactive-abortion. Child euthanasia is still illegal in Holland and doctors are terrified of being prosecuted, but there is a growing number of physicians and poltician who are advocating legalizing doctor-assisted euthanasia for babies and very young children. Each year in Holland at least 15 seriously ill babies, most of them with chromosomal abnormalities, are helped to die by doctors acting with the parents’ consent. But only a fraction of those cases are...

    Oregon Health & Science University will be the first, and maybe only, hospital to give a risky experimental stem-cell transplant to children dying of a rare nerve-destroying disease. In the coming months, as many as six children with Batten disease will travel to OHSU for injections of neural stem cells, primitive cells that can form new brain and nerve cells. The stem cells are taken from human fetuses, with their mothers' agreement, and processed and purified by a California company, StemCells Inc. At OHSU, a surgeon will inject the stem cells into eight areas of each child's brain. The theory...

    Police in a small Texas town say a 13-year-old girl was raped. But the ensuing pregnancy has turned into a small-town morality play, with anti-abortion Catholics complaining because Dublin police drove the girl from a belated rape examination to a Fort Worth Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. Dublin Police Chief Lannie Lee says his officer drove the girl and her family to a Fort Worth hospital on June 23 for an examination in connection with the May incident. When the family decided to consider an abortion, the officer had to go along to collect any remains as evidence, Lee said. A...

    For anyone who has seen The Manchurian Candidate, the recent nomination of Hank Paulson for Treasury Secretary should be a big scare. In the film, private interests brainwash a candidate for the presidency. By using psychological triggers, the private (or I suppose we could call them “special”) interest manipulates the unknowing candidate as a puppet to do their bidding.  On Tuesday President Bush announced his nomination of Henry “Hank” Paulson for Treasury Secretary. Paulson, currently the CEO of financial giant Goldman Sachs, is generally well-regarded by his peers on Wall Street. During his tenure, Goldman has seen some of the...

The most common tale I heard was one of desperation. My experience in Latin America carrie with it three clear lessons for South Dakota....

Following are myths and questions frequently raised by abortion proponents, and facts about the "hard cases" in the abortion debate.

    Sometimes I have met Catholics — especially where I work — who say, "I am personally against abortion, but I am pro-choice." To me, that makes no sense, but how can I argue with them? The pro-abortion movement has made great gains using the "pro-choice" label. First, the "pro-choice" label numbs our moral sensitivity because its masks that anyone really is for abortion, ignores scientific and medical evidence and diverts attention from the act itself. Secondly, the idea of being "pro-choice" seems to appeal to Americans who cherish freedom and the idea of being free to choose rather than being...

    FOR MANY staunch supporters and opponents of abortion rights, the search for a third way on the issue seems like so much phony political positioning. -snip- But there is a new argument on abortion that may establish a more authentic middle ground. It would use government not to outlaw abortion altogether, but to reduce its likelihood. And at least one politician, Thomas R. Suozzi, the county executive of New York's Nassau County, has shown that the position involves more than soothing rhetoric. -snip- This is a matter on which no good deed goes unpunished, and Suozzi was immediately denounced by...

    A pilot study into whether women could have abortions at home has shown early signs of success, it has been reported. Women less than nine weeks pregnant can safely have the medical abortion outside hospital, the Department of Health backed project found. None of the 172 women, who took tablets supervised by a nurse in a health centre, suffered serious complications, Nursing Standard reported. But anti-abortionists say the process is too traumatic for women. The pilot could pave the way for women to have abortions at home, in GP surgeries and in family planning clinics. In a medical abortion, a...

    Dear Colleague, One of the old chestnuts of the pro-abortion movement has turned rotten. They say laws against abortion result in higher maternal mortality. New statistics direct from the UN indicate they couldn't be more wrong. In fact, it seems pro-life nations actually have lower maternal mortality rates. This information must be used immediately by everyone concerned about this issue but particularly by those in countries where abortion is against the law: Ireland and Poland especially. Spread the word far and wide. Yours sincerely, Austin Ruse President Action Item: Read the report here.UN Data Show Banning Abortion Doesn't Increase...
  • Privacy argument isn't relevant in abortion debate

    One reason that Roe v. Wade is still with us is that legal scholars and jurists argue about the wrong issue. The question isn’t whether the Constitution contains any reference to a right to privacy. Let’s assume it does. Let’s assume that the Ninth Amendment, as argued in Griswold v. Connecticut and some other cases, implicitly refers to the right to privacy every human being has. Why would this be relevant? Some might argue that if one has the right to privacy, a woman who has an abortion is doing something private, something no one else has the authority to...

    Black History Month Becoming Obsolete? Racism Results in High Rate of Abortion among African-Americans By Terry VanderheydenWASHINGTON, February 3, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) – February is Black History Month in the US, but at least one organization is questioning whether there will be any African-Americans to commemorate the event, as abortion is preferentially committed against the group.One analyst argues that the discrepancy can be traced back to the racist foundation of America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood. Author Juluette Bartlett Pack, in her essay, A Historical View of Eugenics and Its Role in Abortion in Black America, states, “I argue that there...

    The San Antonio Current for August 21-27, 2003 has an unsettling article describing the Lilith Fund, a 501c3 and so-called 'reproductive equity' group, and their efforts to train abortion assistants. Lilith is a prominent figure in demonology and Jewish folklore. Is it demons and witches presiding over child sacrifices, or the 'right to choose', or both? The San Antonio Current for August 21-27, 2003 article stated, "The Lilith Fund, a non-profit, abortion assistance organization is holding volunteer training for its hotline today from 1-3pm and August 26 from 6:30-8:30pm at San Antonio Reproductive Services, 5838 Joiner Ave. Prospective volunteers need...

      September 2001 COMPULSORY VACCINATIONS THREATEN RELIGIOUS FREEDOMby Mathew D. Staver Most people associate vaccinations with the eradication of disease. Vaccinations have been a part of American life for decades. However, many people object to mandatory vaccinations for religious reasons. Oftentimes, these individuals are told that they have no choice and must receive the vaccinations. You may be surprised to learn that some vaccinations are derived from aborted fetal tissue. Vaccines for chicken pox, Hepatitis-A and Rubella were produced solely from aborted fetal tissue. Even most physicians who oppose abortion do not realize that these three vaccines are made...

    ROME, JAN. 16, 2006 (Zenit.org).- Over Christmastime the Pope repeatedly focused on the value of human life in its initial stages. The backdrop of celebrating Christ's birth gave Benedict XVI the opportunity to touch on the gift of new life.  In his homily at Christmas Eve Midnight Mass the Pontiff drew attention to how God came down to us as a defenseless child. The Almighty has become one of us, noted the Pope, and we first come to know him as a child.   On every child shines something of the splendor of that first Christmas night, the Holy Father commented....

    As Americans Honor Martin Luther King, Abortion Destroys Black CommunityWashington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Millions of Americans today will honor the memory of assassinated civil rights leader Martin Luther King, but, as they do, pro-life leaders within the African American community are concerned about the toll abortion is taking. "Far and away the worse toll is taken in the most vulnerable community, the African American community, where black women are three times more likely to have an abortion than their white counterparts," explains Starr Parker, president of the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education.African American women make up 13.7 percent of...

    ENCINITAS, January 16, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Many pro-life organizations use Christmas season sales of poinsettias to raise funds, but according to a US-based researcher, so do Planned Parenthood and other abortionists in the US. James Hartline, a Christian activist in California wrote to LifeSiteNews.com warning that the poinsettias decorating the churches and homes of Christians in the US could easily originate from a family-owned business that has been supporting abortion for decades. The Ecke Ranch in Encinitas, California, supplies 70% of all of the poinsettias sold in the United States and the Ecke family is among the most generous supporters...

The suicide rate among women who had abortions was six times higher than that of women who had given birth in the prior year and double that of women who had miscarriages. The...
