  • Genetically modified babies given go ahead by UK ethics body

    Genetically modified babies given go ahead by UK ethics body The creation of babies whose DNA has been altered to give them what parents perceive to be the best chances in life has received a cautious green light in a landmark report from a leading UK ethics body.The Nuffield Council on Bioethics said that changing the DNA of a human embryo could be “morally permissible” if it was in the future child’s interests and did not add to the kinds of inequalities that already divide society. The report does not call for a change in UK law to permit genetically...

    With at least 11 million false-documented illegals in the United States – the real number is doubtless twice that – it’s clear that Mexican nationals feel entitled to defy U.S. immigration law. At the same time, the Pueblo Sin Fronteras crowd, denounces the United States as exploitive and slams the American founders as a pack of white supremacists. That calls for a look at José Vasconcelos (1882-1959), a major figure in Mexican history and influential to this day.  Vasconcelos served as rector of the National University of Mexico, and president Alvaro Obregon appointed him as minister of public education...

    About once a week my search for “Today in History” turns up a reminder, positive or negative, of something that pro-lifers should carefully ponder. Ninety one years ago today, in Buck v. Bell, the United States Supreme Court upheld a Virginia law that allowed the forced sterilization of people to promote the “health of the patient and the welfare of society.” Specifically, the 8-1 decision, written by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes permitted an innocent woman by the name of Carrie Buck to be involuntarily sterilized. Carrie Buck’s “crime”? She was supposedly “feeble-minded.” As Social Darwinist Justice Holmes pronounced, in one...

    LIVERPOOL, England, April 20, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A nurse who worked at Alder Hey children’s hospital until this month has published on social media what he says is a scan of Alfie Evans’ brain along with the message that the baby “deserves” to die. “Up, Alfie’s brain. Down, same age healthy boy,” the nurse wrote about the brain scans of two children that he posted to Facebook this week. “Sad reality, but IT’S THE REALITY. He deserves to go, he has had enough,” states the message from the nurse who described himself online as a “PICU Staff Nurse at Alder...

    Margaret Sanger was a rabid racist. The work she promoted and advocated was at its core nothing more than the channeling of her contempt for the poor and uneducated, and specifically, her hatred for blacks, who she argued comprised both poverty and illiteracy. The legacy of her efforts has resulted in the murder of blacks on a level that makes the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) envious. April 4 marked 50 years since the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We have all watched the disgusting phoniness of those who pretend to care about the loss of the great American...
  • Washington Post Editor Advocates Eugenics Claiming It's Her Right to Kill Babies With Down Syndrome

    Washington Post deputy editorial page editor, Ruth Marcus, penned an op-ed yesterday defending the “right” to selectively kill babies inside the mother’s womb who have been diagnosed with Down syndrome. The piece is filled superfluous nonsense that matters neither here, nor there in the main point of her argument. Marcus is not defending killing babies due to perceived disabilities, but rather asserting her belief that a woman should be able to kill the baby inside her womb at anytime and for whatever reason, without question. “There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women...

    There is a new push in antiabortion circles to pass state laws aimed at barring women from terminating their pregnancies after the fetus has been determined to have Down syndrome. These laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable — and wrong. This is a difficult subject to discuss because there are so many parents who have — and cherish — a child with Down syndrome. Many people with Down syndrome live happy and fulfilled lives. The new Gerber baby with Down syndrome is awfully cute. I have had two children; I was old enough, when I became pregnant, that it made sense to...

    In an unusual display of self-criticism, a Planned Parenthood student group at the University of Florida hosted an event Wednesday to discuss the racist roots of the organization as well as the eugenics of founder Margaret Sanger. “Come join Planned Parenthood Generation Action for a panel discussion on the racist roots of Planned Parenthood during Black History Month,” read the Facebook announcement of the event bearing the title “Decolonizing Sexual Health.” “Our subject is addressing the racist roots of the birth control movement, specifically pertaining to the influence of eugenics,” the post continues. “Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood’s founder, is a...

    A woman’s reason for aborting her unborn baby should not matter, even if she does not want a child with Down syndrome, an attorney for Planned Parenthood told a federal court Thursday. Abortion is a woman’s “absolute right,” ACLU attorney Ken Falk argued in front of a panel of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, the Indiana Lawyer reports. On Thursday, the appeals court heard Planned Parenthood and the ACLU’s challenge of an Indiana state law that prohibits abortions based solely on an unborn baby’s sex, race or disability such as Down syndrome. The state and Planned Parenthood have been...

    David Perry, a “senior academic adviser” at University of Minnesota, and a former professor at Dominican University, recently wrote a piece for The Nation, where he champions abortion for babies diagnosed with Down syndrome or other possible mental or physical disabilities. In a piece titled, “Republicans Are Using Fear of Eugenics to Attack Reproductive Rights”, Perry argues that recent attempts to prohibit Down syndrome abortions, such as a recently signed and passed piece of legislation in Ohio, is not really about protecting vulnerable human beings, but about controlling women’s bodies. In fact, Perry attacks Republicans for using language about eugenics...

    One of the techniques currently under development that it is following is NMN, a compound expected to enter clinical trials after it was shown to rejuvenate elderly mice in laboratory tests. It is also considering making more advanced tweaks or alterations to the DNA of its astronauts, although the moral implications of such a radical step will need to be addressed. This includes epigenetic modifications, which alter the way genes are read by the body without making changes to the underlying DNA code. Using such a technique would allow Nasa's scientists to turn up the volume on one genetic instruction...

    "More children from the fit; less from the unfit—that is the chief issue of birth control." [1] –Margaret Sanger, Birth Control Review Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, has an ignoble legacy as a racist who addressed the Ku Klux Klan and initiated a Negro Project to reduce the population of poor, uneducated African Americans whom she considered unfit to reproduce themselves. This Margaret Sanger—the real Margaret Sanger—is completely whitewashed in Parenthood propaganda, which deceitfully portrays Sanger as a champion of reproductive “choice.” Even more incriminating than Sanger’s racism, however, is her close association with Nazism. Sanger was part...

    BOISE -- The Riverside Hotel canceled the Idaho Freedom Foundation's annual banquet, citing concerns for guest safety surrounding the keynote speaker. But the foundation says the left is trying to stifle free speech and ideas. The "Faces of Freedom Banquet" was supposed to happen at the Riverside Hotel August 26. But after hearing of possible protests online - and in the wake of the violent incidents in Charlotesville - hotel owners told the conservative group that could no longer happen. The Idaho Freedom Foundation touts conservative principles, limited government, free markets and self-reliance. Their stated mission is to "hold public...

    It is a rich if tragic irony that the same progressives denouncing Richard Spencer and demanding that municipal statues be torn down for their alleged white supremacist qualities are themselves closely aligned with a white supremacist-tied group. I am speaking, of course, of Planned Parenthood, which is to the abortion-loving Left what Adolf Hitler’s bunker would have become to fascists had Germany not demolished it in the late 1980s: a sort of holy shrine upon which adulation and adoration can be fixated. The racist, eugenicist roots of Planned Parenthood are well-documented, as is the paranoid racial and eugenic visions of...

    With the rise of prenatal screening tests across Europe and the United States, the number of babies born with Down syndrome has significantly decreased, but few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland. Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.

    The majority of females in Iceland choose to murder their unborn child if the down syndrome prenatal test comes back positive, which has led to almost no one left on the island with Down syndrome. Key thing to remember: The people on the island are NOT eliminating Down syndrome. They are murdering people with Down syndrome.In 2009, Thordis Ingadottir became pregnant with her third child when she was 40. The test showed that her child had a slim chance of having Down syndrome, but Agusta was born with it. Only three children born in 2009 in Iceland had Down...

    CBS reported Sunday that the majority of expecting mothers in the country or “close to 100 percent” who received a positive test for Down syndrome “terminated their pregnancy.” The network tweeted on Sunday, "Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. #CBSNOA learns more, tonight at 10pm ET/PT." The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter with a heated reply, taking aim at the wording of the CBS tweet and Iceland in the process. "Iceland isn't actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They're just killing everybody that has it. Big difference," she wrote.

Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy. While the tests are optional, the government states that all expectant mothers must be informed about availability of screening tests, which reveal the likelihood of a child being...

    People unwilling to act on the climate-crisis narrative should be assisted with drugs that improve and promote conformity, according to eminent bio-ethicist Professor Matthew Liao, of New York University, who also wants to see parents dosing their children with hormones and diets to keep them shorter and less of a burden on the planet. He wants such people to be given the ‘love drug/cuddle chemical’ oxytocin. This would increase their trust and empathy and make them more ready to change to emission-saving lifestyles. As his peer-reviewed study puts it, “Pharmacologically induced altruism and empathy could increase the likelihood that we...
