  • After-birth abortion: why should the baby live? [2012 peer reviewed article]

    Abstract Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus' health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., January 17, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Broken families and multiple sex partners lead to more abortions, according to a new report unveiled Wednesday by the Family Research Council. The report, co-authored by the Family Research Council's Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI) director, Pat Fagan, Ph.D., and Visiting Fellow Scott Talkington, Ph.D., was based on data from the National Survey of Family Growth (NSFG). It found that almost 90 percent of women admitting to at least one abortion have had at least three sexual partners. Women from intact families had an abortion rate 10 percent lower than women from...

    May 9, 2013 (LiveActionNews.org) - In 1977, abortion was legal throughout the country during all nine months of pregnancy. When an obstetrician/gynecologist told teenager “Mary W” that she was 28 weeks pregnant, he suggested that she give the baby up for adoption, as few doctors in the area were willing to perform abortions that late. But Mary was determined, and she managed to find an abortionist – Dr. William Baxter Waddill. On March 2, 1977, Mary arrived at Westminster Community Hospital for a saline abortion. Saline abortions are seldom performed today because of the danger to the mother and the...

    TORONTO, December 20, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) - A new study of Canadian women finds that pregnant women who are married suffer less partner abuse, substance abuse, and post-partum depression than women who are cohabitating or single. Dr. Marcelo Urquia, an epidemiologist at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, found that about one in 10 married women (10.6 per cent) suffered partner abuse, substance abuse, or post-partum depression. However, 20 per cent of women who were cohabitating but not married suffered from at least one of those three conditions. The figure rose to 35 per cent for single women who had never married—and...

    Hold your fire. Did you think I was talking about Republicans? Oh, no. I’m talking about the Democrats. That party has been hijacked by the radical feminist fringe. In a way that mimics the imagined trend of the Tea party, the feminists are pushing losing candidates on the Democrats, and forcing them to pick up losing issues in the elections. This goes from Barack Obama on down. In a jobs election, he’s talking abortion. This has been brewing a while, too. So hold your inflamed commentary about recent events, because this is older than that. Here’s a trio of photos...

    The culture of death is again attempting to rationalize infanticide with a kinder, gentler euphemism they call “after-birth abortions.” The central tenet of this latest approach revolves around the relativist argument that if a child can be killed in the mother’s womb for reasons of convenience, then why not murder the child after it is born with the same rationale? Two university students in Australia, Alberto Giubilini who attends Monash University in Melbourne, and Francesca Minerva at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne, have written an article in the Journal of Medical Ethics...

    Well, that didn’t take long. A major Susan G. Komen for the Cure donor has called for the breast cancer foundation to “clean house” including Komen founder and chief executive Nancy Brinker. In a letter to friends and family, published by The UK Guardian Wednesday, Eve Ellis, who spent six years on Komen NYC’s Board and raised over $250,000 for the group, explained that she does not believe Brinker’s claims that the decision to cut grants to Planned Parenthood were not politically motivated. Ellis wrote, in the letter sent Monday, that in order to restore her trust Komen must replace...

    It’s always interesting to hear how the other side views its political proponents. When they have whined in the past that pro-abortion politicians aren’t vocal enough, I have always held the opposite view. But not lately. While pro-life politicians could always do better, I have recently thought that particularly the Republican presidential candidates have come out quite strongly on the life issue. And to my knowledge, on January 23 John Boehner became the first Speaker of the House to ever address the March for Life. We’re seeing trickle-down pro-life. And as everyone knows, we also made great gains in the...

    New American ^ | 3/16/2011 | Michael O'Connor
    Trends within politics rarely occur in a vacuum. Instead, they develop within a broader ideological and historical context, which accounts for individual elected officials’ political motivations to this very day. Planned Parenthood, for instance, has always enjoyed the support of a notable component of the Republican Party, especially its moderate or Rockefeller wing, comprised of influential Establishment elitists, internationalists, and environmentalists. The seven Republicans who voted in favor of retaining federal funding for Planned Parenthood, in addition to Senators Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Olympia Snowe, all hail from this tradition. Beyond their obvious support for pro-choice causes, these individuals...

Both CBS and NBC’s White House reporters squeezed in a single sentence about Obama’s action during stories about the economic stimulus bill, while ABC’s World News said nothing about the orders on Friday.But on Sunday’s World News, ABC’s Dan Harris highlighted conservative...

    Abortion is back in the news yet, understandably, many women still find it difficult to talk about. Here Lucy Cavendish – who has been through it twice – offers a candid view Virtually every woman I know of my generation has had an abortion. The problem is that no one talks about it. It is hidden away as if it were a dirty secret. This week, however, every time I've opened a newspaper or turned on the radio, abortion has been the topic du jour. First, Conservative MP Nadine Dorries called for the legal limit for terminations to be...

    ATLANTIC CITY — A troubled doctor’s expected purchase of a shuttered city abortion clinic has raised the ire of anti-abortion activists, who picketed in front of the facility Monday afternoon, demanding the state not approve the deal. Signs insisting the state block any sale of the clinic to Dr. Steven Chase Brigham, whose incidents of botched abortions and unorthodox methods led to the termination of his license in New York and Florida, lined the sidewalk in front of the Pacific Avenue clinic. “Our main focus is to block this Brigham sale,” said Chris Slattery, president of Expectant Mother Care, a...

    Febuary 2007 – Popular Ex-Mayor of New York, pro-choice Republican Rudy Giuliani, announced the creation of his 2008 Exploratory Committee. This is wonderful news for all Americans, especially GOP moderate Republicans who are counting on someone like Mr. Giuliani to help bring our Grand Old Party back to its roots – to once again be the Party of individual rights that advocates that the government that governs least is the government that governs best. He has been a supporter of Republicans for Choice since its earliest days. ~snip~

    WHEN Frank and Anita’s daughter Chanou was born with an extremely rare, incurable illness in August 2000, they knew that her life would be short and battled against the odds to make it happy. They struggled around the clock against their baby’s pain. “We tried all sorts of things,” said Anita, a 37-year-old local government worker. “She cried all the time. Every time I touched her it hurt.” Chanou was suffering from a metabolic disorder that had resulted in abnormal bone development. Doctors gave her no more than 30 months to live. “We felt terrible watching her suffer,” said Anita...

    Fund Abortion at Private Clinics or Face "Consequences" Feds Warn New Brunswick FREDERICTON, April 28, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - New Brunswick remains deadlocked with the federal Liberal Government over funding of abortions at private clinics. While the province will pay for abortions at hospitals after two doctors approve the procedure, the province is under pressure by both the federal government and a lawsuit by abortionist Henry Morgentaler to fund Morgentaler's private Fredericton abortuary that offers abortion on demand. Yesterday the provincial Department of Health and Wellness received a letter from the federal government initiating an official dispute avoidance resolution process to...

    The woman once known as "Jane Roe" has asked the Supreme Court to overturn its landmark Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion 32 years ago. Norma McCorvey, whose protest of Texas' abortion ban led to the 1973 ruling, contends in a petition received at the court Tuesday that the case should be heard again in light of evidence that the procedure may harm women. "Now we know so much more, and I plead with the court to listen for witnesses and re-evaluate Roe v. Wade," said McCorvey, who says she now regrets her role in the case. The politically charged...

    A Melbourne man was today jailed for eight years for killing a 15-month-old girl by punching her in the stomach. Aniesto Lefau, 42, of suburban Epping, was ordered to serve a minimum term of five-and-a-half years. He pleaded guilty to the manslaughter of Cecelia Tuliloa on October 1 last year. Victorian Supreme Court judge, Justice Murray Kellam, said the victim, the daughter of Lefau's then de facto wife, died from internal bleeding after she was punched by Lefau. He had picked her up because she was crying. The judge said Lefau had drunk up to 10 stubbies of beer and...

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...

    Anti-abortion New York Democrats have affiliated with a group that includes party members from seven other states. The Rochester-based Democrats For Life of New York, which held a news conference in Albany Tuesday, is making the case that the Democratic Party has gone too far in embracing abortion rights. The group, which lists former Rep. John LaFalce, of Buffalo, among its members, also opposes the death penalty and euthanasia.
