    At least one in five patients declared brain dead and approved as organ donors by one organ donation organization, are in fact still alive and are being killed by the removal of vital organs, a lawsuit filed last week in Manhattan alleges. The suit outlines the ghoulish worst-case scenario, one that was widely dismissed as scaremongering in the early days of the development of organ transplant technology, but which is getting a second hearing amidst growing concerns that coercion and abuse are becoming increasingly common in the highly lucrative transplant business. Patrick McMahon, a nurse practitioner and Air Force combat...
  • Why is a Children’s Hospital So Bent on Cutting Off Jahi McMath’s Life Support?

    Children’s Hospital Oakland has a very good reputation where I live in the Bay Area. But its public communication around the tragedy of Jahi McMath’s ”brain death” has been astoundingly insensitive, bordering on arrogant. The hospital’s statements quoted in today’s San Francisco Chronicle continues the maladroit insensitivity. The hospital states it will remove the ventilator the moment that can be done legally. From the story: Children’s Hospital Oakland officials confirmed Sunday they will turn off the machines sustaining Jahi McMath’s body as soon as a legal injunction expires at 5 p.m. Monday unless otherwise ordered by a court. “Barring any...

    KEYE TV has learned city council is considering a resolution that -- if passed -- would "restrict fast-food food restaurants from locating near areas that children frequent." That includes schools, municipal parks, child care centers and libraries... Convenience stores are also being targeted. The plan would offer food marts incentives to carry healthy food options.

    Did you ever see that bumper sticker that says, "Don't like abortion? Don't have one!"Think of the inanity of that statement. The premise, of course, is that to murder an innocent living human being simply because it doesn't exist outside the womb is a "choice." To the pro-abortion crowd, choosing whether or not to have an abortion is no different than whether or not to see a movie or whether or not to purchase an iPhone. Don't like a certain movie? Don't see it! Don't want an iPhone? Don't buy one! What logically follows, they believe, is: Don't like abortion?...

    Lilith Fair Drops Pregnancy Centers From Charity List, Keeps Abortion Biz Washington, DC -- Four days after it first received national attention for including crisis pregnancy centers in its list of potential charity recipients, organizers of the typically pro-abortion Lilith Fair dropped them from consideration. Officials also dropped a pro-abortion group but kept another and kept a group of maternity homes. http://LifeNews.com/nat6217.html

    Some critics complain that the issue of education has been conspicuously absent from presidential television debates. But Democratic presidential candidates did sound off with their pro-federal government, pro-spending policies at the annual convention of the National Education Association, and the nation's largest teachers union liked what they heard. U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., told delegates that she will fight school vouchers "with every breath in my body." Reiterating the message of her book "It Takes a Village," she called for universal preschool for 4-year-olds. Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., likewise inveighed against "passing out vouchers." Former Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., also...
  • Pro-Life Ads on Ontario Buses Vandalized by Abortion Supporters (in the name of "choice"!)

    GUELPH, March 27, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Two pro-life advertisements on city buses in Guelph, Ontario were vandalized last week. The ads, depicting a 19-week-old fetus with the caption "this is a child not a choice" and offering the phone number of a local crisis pregnancy centre, were defaced with black spray-paint. The phone number was blotted out and the word "CHOICE" was sprawled over the ad. The board of Guelph and Area Right to Life association was saddened by the vandalism. "We are not surprised, however," association president Jakki Jeffs said, "those who say they support 'choice' have consistently shown...

    Amazon.com has modified its book search results after receiving complaints from abortion advocates who thought they were tilted in favor of the pro-life view. A pro-abortion religious group objected to Amazon asking customers if they wanted books on adoption when putting in the term "abortion" as a search phrase. Amazon made the change a few days ago. Before that, a question asking customers, "Did you mean adoption?" appeared at the top of search results for books on abortion. That upset Reverend James Lewis, a retired Episcopalian minister in West Virginia and a member of the board of the pro-abortion Religious...

    Sorry for the vanity but I could not resist speaking to this irony: 1) NARAL's web site comes up with a "tell your senator to oppose this three-eyed, twenty-foot-high firebreathing tentacled dragon monster Roberts", calling him "anti-choice". Yet NARAL's page offers no "choice" to change the message one sends to the senator. Pro-choice, eh? 2) The two top words are "Choose Justice". Justice... From NARAL - executing the most innocent of us in the most brutal manner imagineable. Justice. That word coming from them, unbelievable.

    What does the bible really say about infanticide (abortion)? By Darren Morrison You would be amazed to hear that there are professing Christians who claim to be pro-death. There are people who say infanticide is not wrong according to the bible. There are even liberal churches and I use the word “church” loosely here that take a pro-death stance. I heard a person once say “the bible says nothing about abortion”. I guess they just don’t ever read their bible. It is more likely they don’t even have a real one to begin with. But my bible, the King James...

    I GOT THIS TODAY FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S FEDERAL ACTION FUND... Got Curves? Last week, a socially conscious pro-choice advocate asked The New York Times Magazine Ethicist this poignant question: "I am in my month's trial membership at the fitness chain Curves, and I love it. I must decide whether to sign up for a year, and I've learned that the owner of the company financially supports pro-life efforts, whereas I am pro-choice. Do I have a duty to give up my Curves membership?" Many people often ask Planned Parenthood this very same question and we applaud columnist Robert Cohen for...

    The Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice is a misnomer and theological contradiction, that is, if defined in biblical terms. Yet the hoax continues. With that, the group denounces recently President Bush’s administration health care policies as "extreme". Perhaps some religious persons are duped by the organization's fabrication. But the truly biblically knowledgeable know a lie when they hear a lie. Rev. James Lamb, executive director of National Lutherans for Life, says it all when he states that "once you lose your scriptural base, you can justify anything. They’re playing to what they think the culture wants to hear." What is...

    Outside view: In the eye of the withholder By Raul DamasA UPI Outside view commentary From the Washington Politics & Policy Desk Published 8/8/2002 7:57 AM ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 3 (UPI) -- This new twist on an old phrase could well serve as the call-to-arms for modern liberal Democrats. Of course, for decades now, the left has touted "choice" as its paradigm for good public policy. We've all heard their slogans: "An individual's right to choose." "Freedom of choice." "My body, my choice." Listening to this sloganeering, one would automatically believe that the individual's right to choose for oneself what...
