    Alabama Abortions Down Nearly 50 Percent Since 1980 Abortions in Alabama have been cut nearly in half over the past two decades, public health records show, dropping from 21,000 in 1980 to 11,656 procedures last year, The Birmingham News reports. "There's no doubt in my mind that the passage and enforcement of incremental pro-life laws like parental consent, 24-hour reflection period and mandated ultrasound before an abortion is performed have contributed to Alabama's drop in abortions," said Carrie Gordon Earll, senior analyst for bioethics at Focus on the Family Action. "Such incremental laws save lives and move the culture toward...

    Washington, DC ( -- One of the top pro-abortion groups in the country told its membership last week that several of the main Republican presidential contenders couldn't get its support because they're pro-life on abortion. Of the leading names, only pro-abortion ex-New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani was not included for criticism. The pro-abortion group NARAL told its members that it also expects one more candidate to enter the race who is "bent on taking away a woman's right to choose: Fred Thompson." "Thompson joins a cadre of candidates who are clamoring to out anti-choice each other," the organization's president...

    LISBON, Portugal, July 16, 2007 ( - On Sunday July 15 a law came into effect in predominantly Catholic Portugal allowing abortion up to the tenth week of pregnancy. After a mandatory three-day "cooling" period, abortion is available on demand in hospitals. The law maintains a few minor restrictions, including the three-day waiting period. Before procuring an abortion, the International Herald-Tribune reports, the expectant mother must first talk to a doctor who will explain the health risks of abortion. According to the new law, she must then wait an additional three days before having the operation. After an abortion, women...

    WASHINGTON, DC, July 4, 2007 ( - The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) has urged Amnesty International (AI) to return to its neutral position on abortion when the AI International Council meets in Mexico this August. The President of the USCCB, Bishop William S. Skylstad, urged AI to renounce its position on abortion in a July 2 statement. He wrote, "The action of the Executive Council undermines Amnesty's longstanding moral credibility, diverts its mission, divides its own members (many of whom are Catholic or defend the rights of unborn children), and jeopardizes Amnesty's support by people in many...

    MILWAUKEE, June 29, 2007 ( – In a letter to the New York Times on Monday, Daniel C. Maguire, a professor of moral theology at Marquette University, stated that bishops should stop harassing Catholic politicians who vote in favor of abortion. Maguire drew on St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas who both thought that to allow certain moral evils would prevent “greater evils.” He further cited Aquinas, who said that the “wise legislator” imitates God, who “tolerates certain evils lest greater evils ensue.” The letter continued, “Similarly, today legislators who truly think abortion immoral could vote to keep it legal...

    LONDON, June 29, 2007 ( – A week after it was announced that England and Wales have broken their own records for abortion rates, physician members of the British Medical Association (BMA) voted yesterday to make abortion in Britain even easier to obtain in the first trimester of pregnancy.

Under the current law, two doctors have to endorse the decision to abort, but...

    PRETORIA, June 25, 2007 ( – A South African nurse, who in 2004 had been banned from the operating room because of her opposition to abortion, has had her case referred to the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA).

Her case was heard this week by the Labour Appeals Court in Braamfontein....

    Washington, DC ( -- A new study shows that the pro-life position on abortion has been gaining ground over the least fifteen years as more people identify themselves as pro-life. The new report shows a change in the public's attitude on abortion at a time when then strategies of the pro-life movement shifted away from aggressive protesting. Over the last 15 years, the pro-life movement has experienced a renaissance of sorts. From the mid 1990s to the present, crisis pregnancy centers have come of age, the post-abortion community has presented the authentic face of abortion and pro-life groups have become...

    Johannesburg, South Africa ( -- A South African nurse who faced discrimination for refusing to do abortions had her case heard at an appeals court Friday. The woman filed suit in August 2004 after refusing a hospital's orders to participate in abortions.

The suit, filed against Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang and the Gauteng hospital seeks immediate reinstatement, 50,000 Rand (over $7,400 U.S. dollars),...

An archaeological expedition is being led by Professor Ralph Jameson from Belize University. Jameson is one of the foremost authorities in pre-Ice Age antiquity. Jameson's discoveries have changed the way the world views North America's ancient history. During a trip to the North American continent, which for the past 18,000 plus years has been buried under more than a mile of glacial ice, Jameson is accompanied by a...
