    There’s a lot that’s still confusing about the case of Purvi Patel. But one thing is clear: The 33-year-old from South Bend, Indiana, is facing up to 70 years in prison as the first pregnant woman to be convicted under Indiana’s “feticide” law. t’s a case that cheers some anti-abortion advocates but has reproductive rights groups and doctors worried about how laws originally passed to protect pregnant women are now being used against them in court. Patel comes from a family of Hindu immigrants from India. In the mostly Irish-Catholic town of South Bend, they kept to themselves. Patel worked...

    I’m beginning to wonder if Mr Romney’s gentle Mormonism won’t let him go in for the kill... ‘Kill’ being the right word... What the Republicans have is a tape made at the time Mr Obama voted repeatedly in the Illinois State Senate to deny rights of basic medical care to any child born alive in a botched abortion. Mr Obama is on tape referring to the victim as ‘a foetus outside the womb.’ [snip]Mr Obama takes the position that, even when a child who is the target of an abortion attempt makes it as far as lying on a table...

    I was just reading the report on abortion statistics from England and Wales and was caught off guard by one paragraph: For abortions at 22 weeks or beyond, feticide is recommended prior to the evacuation of the uterus to stop the fetal heart. In 2010, of the 1,173 abortions performed at 22 weeks and over, 70% were reported as preceded by a feticide and a further 25% were performed by a method whereby the fetal heart is stopped as part of the procedure. 2% of abortions at 22 weeks or beyond were confirmed as having no feticide. For the remaining...

    ...The abortion lie has been revealed in its wretched ugliness. Every procured abortion is the intentional killing of an innocent child. No-one who continues to support it is a friend of the poor. The baby in the womb is, as Mother Teresa so clearly reminded us, the "poorest of the poor". Defenders of abortion on demand hate the poor. Any Nation which protects in the positive law the taking of innocent human life in the womb, calling it a "right" and a "choice" is participating in evil and promoting darkness. The Gospel for the Mass on the Feast of the...

    ...There are times when the evil of procured abortion becomes obvious and the Nation is shaken out of its complacency. In 2002 we witnessed the killing of Laci and Connor Peterson and called it what it was, a double homicide. In 2004 when a child was brutally removed from the womb of Bobby Jo Stinnet of Missouri by her murderer, we rejoiced when that baby was found in good health. In 2005, legislation intended to protect children in the womb from criminal acts was used to shield a mother who participated in killing her own child. In Lufkin, Texas, 19...

    Words matter. They speak volumes about issues. So when individuals or groups try to change the words associated with a heated political issue, take note and take care. The folks at National Public Radio understand the power of words. Managing Editor David Sweeney announced yesterday that the station would no longer refer to people in the abortion debate as "pro-choice" and "pro-life." Instead, the station will say "abortion rights advocates" and "abortion rights opponents," according to a memo circulated to NPR staff. In making this change, NPR is shifting the terms of the debate to make it more friendly to...

    31 year-old Ruby Lee Medina and her 37-year-old accomplice Javier Gonzalez are being held on “abuse of corpse and tampering with evidence” charges in Texas. Let’s see what happens. The case is no different than the Skinner case. The “super right” to decide whether to kill a child in the womb seems to trump every other true right such as the Right to Life. Cases such as these two reveal the fangs on the evil face of legal abortion on demand in our Nation. The Senate will soon pass legislation which, in the name of “health care”, will allow our...

    BRITISH scientists have developed the world’s first stem cell therapy to cure the most common cause of blindness. Surgeons predict it will become a routine, one-hour procedure that will be generally available in six or seven years’ time. The treatment involves replacing a layer of degenerated cells with new ones created from embryonic stem cells. It was pioneered by scientists and surgeons from the Institute of Ophthalmology at University College London and Moorfields eye hospital.

    Obama to Sign Executive Order Monday Opening Public Funding of Embryonic Stem Cell Research By John-Henry Westen WASHINGTON, March 6, 2009 ( - President Barack Obama plans to rescind the Bush policy limiting federal funding for embryo destructive research on Monday. The Bush policy had allowed federal funding for experiments on already existing lines of embryos, but forbade the funds from being used to create new embryos for experimentation. According to news reports, a signing ceremony will take place on Monday at 11 am. Details about the Executive Order are not available, but according to the Washington Post, "proponents...

    In India baby girls are being disproportionately aborted or neglected and left to die. In one area in the state of Punjab, there are only 300 girls for every 1,000 boys among high cast families, the report claims. The vice president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) reacts to the situation by discussing about what the Church is doing and about his hopes for the future Findings from areas across five states in north and north-west India reveal that the asymmetrical sex ratio between girls and boys has not only worsened but is accelerating compared to the last...

    India to register pregnancies to fight feticide By Kamil Zaheer Fri Jul 13, 5:33 AM ET India plans to create a registry of all pregnancies to help curb widespread female feticide and reduce its high infant mortality rate, although activists say the scheme will be hard to implement. "With this, mysterious abortions will become difficult," Women and Child Development Minister Renuka Chowdhury told the Hindustan Times. The government wanted to ensure that abortions -- often carried out illegally with the aim of doing away with unwanted female fetuses -- were done for an "acceptable and valid reason," she said. "This...

    Something noteworthy is happening in the mainstream media. First, The Los Angeles Times ran a story that, in all its horrible brutality, attempted to defend a couple's decision to kill selected fetuses in the woman's womb by means of what is euphemistically called "selective reduction." The article was chilling in its cold honesty and grotesque morality. Then The New York Times runs a pair of articles [see first and second] that deal honestly with the fact that babies are being aborted after a diagnosis of Down syndrome and other unwanted traits. As these reports indicate, 90 percent of babies identified...

    WASHINGTON, DC, December 13, 2006 ( - A former abortion patient of George R. Tiller, the infamous late-term abortionist from Wichita, Kansas, appeared on the Fox News show "The O'Reilly Factor" Tuesday evening and told details of her horrific late-abortion experience and the devastating emotional aftermath she experienced. Identified only as "Kelly" the woman related how, at age 14, she was taken to Kansas by her parents from her home in Maryland, and given an abortion in the 20th week of pregnancy. According to Kelly, she was forced to deliver her dead child into a toilet, an event that...

    Feticide, the Supreme Court and South Dakota Deacon Keith Fournier © Third Millennium, LLC Introduction Two events of great importance have taken center stage in the past week. We live in what Pope Benedict XVI called in his first encyclical letter an “anti-culture” of death. This is a slight - but important- nuanced variance in terminology from the past reference to a “culture of death” used by his predecessor of blessed memory, that great champion of life, John Paul II. Pope Benedict will not even call it a “culture” of death. He is correct. The acceptance of the notion that...

    The Soul of John Kerry May 25, 2004 Communion is the central sacrament of the Catholic Church. So once again the question arises: Should the bishops deny it to Catholic politicians who promote abortion? The issue has heated up because of John Kerry, a Catholic so tepid that until this year few have thought of him as having any religion at all. Suddenly he’s saying his religion is important to him, even though he seems to skip Sunday mass to attend Protestant churches — not so much to worship as to campaign. Of course a church has the right to...

    The Faithful and the Faithless May 6, 2004 If elected in November, John Kerry would be our third Catholic president. John Kennedy was of course the first. Who was the second? Give up? Ronald Reagan. As I understand it, he was baptized a Catholic in infancy, though he was raised as a Protestant. In the eyes of the Catholic Church, if you’re baptized in the Church you remain a Catholic all your life. That’s one of the many things even most Catholics don’t realize anymore. There’s a general impression that the Second Vatican Council suspended the old rules and left...
