    April 20, 2012 (thePublicDiscourse.com) - On March 8, the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on the Constitution heard testimony on the proposed Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA). I was among those who testified in favor of the Act. CIANA would prohibit transporting a minor across state lines with the intent that she obtain an abortion without involving her parents as may be required by her home state. It also would require that abortion providers comply with the parental notification or consent laws of a minor’s home state when performing an abortion on a non-resident minor. More controversially, CIANA would...

    April 20, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In the wake of a decision by the nation’s Supreme Federal Tribunal determining that babies suffering from the birth defect known as anencephaly aren’t “legally” alive, and therefore can be freely aborted, Brazilian doctors are explaining to the media how such babies will in fact be killed under the new legal regime. In a recent interview with Brazil’s most popular news magazine, Veja, the Vice-President of the Federal Council on Medicine, Dr. Carlos Vital, explained that doctors will have two choices: either “curettage” or “aspiration.” Abortions of ancephalic babies will be performed in the second...

    LifeSiteNews.com reported some time ago about Planned Parenthood’s latest, most bizarre effort to drum up support for its indefensible industry: holding a 40-day prayer campaign in favor of abortion. Kathleen Gilbert reported the 40 Days of Prayer material “lists 40 different prayers for those involved in the ‘sacred care’ of abortions to continue protecting, providing, and embracing the procedure - including mothers, escorts, abortionists, and everyone involved except the unborn children.” However, most of the national reporting has failed to convey the full breadth and diversity of the undertaking. The campaign is modeled on the more successful 40 Days of...

    Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen, exemplifying mainstream media’s pervasive bias, unleashed a firestorm recently. Ms. Rosen ridiculed Mitt Romney’s wife regarding the economic literacy of stay-at-home mothers; contemptuously dismissing Ann Romney for “never having worked a day in her life.” Many mothers managing family finances implicitly understand economics better than political strategists or government bureaucrats. Housewives engage markets constantly. Ludwig von Mises noted of inflation, the “housewife knows much more about price changes as far as they affect her own household than the statistical averages can tell.” The myriad advantages of full time motherhood extend far beyond finance, but there are...

A fertility clinic in Washington state has been targeting Indo-Canadians in British Columbia with an ad encouraging them to “create the family you want: Boy or Girl.” The ad features a picture of an ethnic boy and girl attired in traditional Indian garb.  A website address in the ad directs parents...

The nation’s largest abortion provider “must obey state laws that say only licensed pharmacists may distribute prescription drugs when a clinic is not under contract with the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services,” said Michael Tierney, an attorney affiliated with the Alliance Defense Fund.

Leading pro-abortion activist Joyce Arthur insisted so loudly that asserting the humanity of the pre-born child is “begging the question” that she couldn’t hear the scientific consensus of embryologists and medical professionals. (She may believe that humans can give birth to the offspring of other species. Further research required.)

She is the mother of two severely disabled adult children, and she feels that the moral thing to do would be to kill them by lethal injection, to end their “suffering.” Her children were diagnosed with Sanfilippo syndrome, causing them to lose motor function and be institutionalized. They cannot speak, and they have to be fed through feeding tubes. Any more information on their condition wasn’t made clear –...

Brewer said April 12. “Knowing that abortions become riskier the later they are performed in pregnancy,” she said, “it only makes sense to prohibit these procedures past twenty weeks.” The legislation, H.B. 2036, bars abortion in cases where the unborn child is 20 weeks...

In many cases women change their minds about a planned abortion after seeing the images of their developing child. Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest commended Brewer...

    PLAINS, GEORGIA, April 11, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Leader of former President Jimmy Carter’s longtime denomination say his calls for the Democratic Party to adopt a less radical pro-choice platform is a political calculation to help the party in the South. “I never have believed that Jesus Christ would approve of abortions,” Carter told talk show host Laura Ingraham, while promoting his new study Bible. “I’ve signed a public letter calling for the Democratic Party at the next convention to espouse my position on abortion which is to minimize the need…and limit it only to women whose life are in danger...

    EUREKA, California, April 11, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Although Planned Parenthood has frequently complained of pro-life prayer vigils - particularly the biannual 40 Days for Life Campaign - one California Planned Parenthood affiliate seems to have chosen an unusually direct way of countering such efforts. Last month, Six Rivers Planned Parenthood (SRPP) of Eureka, California, launched a campaign called the 40 Days of Prayer: Supporting Women Everywhere. The campaign, as noticed by Liberty Counsel, lists 40 different prayers for those involved in the “sacred care” of abortions to continue protecting, providing, and embracing the procedure - including mothers, escorts, abortionists, and...

    According to the newly released report, Dying with Dignity, co-signed by nine Quebec politicians, people are now ready to regard death through a new lens. We can free ourselves from a traditional "paternalistic" relationship with our physicians in order to embrace a more informed attitude in facing suffering and end-of-life issues. Our values, the report says, have greatly evolved in the past 20 years; therefore, it is only normal that in our farewell to life, we should take a close look at a new option offered by the state. The report's writers caution that although in the past Quebecers' values...

    A local Planned Parenthood abortion business in California is copycatting the 40 Days for Life campaign, which recently resulted in saving the lives of more than 700 unborn children from abortion. The abortion business has set up its own 40 Days of Prayer for the local abortion center. “We trust you to decide about your sexuality, having your children, and planning your family,” says a flier promoting the Humbolt County Clergy for Choice event. “We are religious leaders who value all human life. We accept that religions differ about when life begins. We are here to help.” “We believe...

Wade was first argued before it went to the Supreme Court and opened the floodgates to abortion on demand. Christian leader Lou Engle who organized the event exhorted the assembled: “Almost 40 years ago a judicial decree was initiated here at the Dallas courthouse that has led to the abortion of 54 million babies and the wounding of millions of women and men. This Haman-like death decree has entrenched itself deep within the fibre...

    "We have to get beyond the damn rhetoric," Dr. John Bruchalski tells a group of medical students on a recent stop in his second annual National Medical Students for Life Tour. He's talking about the a-word, abortion -- the one many of us just don't want to have to talk about. Including in med school. "Dr. B," as he's known, reads from a Washington Post article that ran a few years ago, in which a medical student recalled witnessing her first abortion and her struggle to reconcile the gruesome reality with her pro-choice views. "I think she's getting at...

    Respect for autonomy is one of the most convincing arguments for euthanasia. It was the theme of a strong defence of legalising it in Australia in the Journal of Law and Medicine by Margaret Otlowski and Lorana Bartels in 2010. They concluded that “ in a secular society with an ageing population” legalisation is inevitable. However, in the latest issue of the JLM a criminologist at the University of Tasmania has made a vigorous response. Jeremy Prichard doubts that many people in the community will be able to give full and voluntary consent to ending their lives. He contends that...
