    As if the new York Times couldn’t sink any further down the hole of warped and twisted pro-abortion activism, the Gray Lady is out with yet another “news” piece that moves the newspaper further beyond the pale.Ruth Pawder is out today with a new story titled “The Two-Minus-One Pregnancy,” that focuses on “selective reduction” – the euphemistic phrase given to name the destruction of one or more unborn children in a multiple pregnancy situation where a mother has more than one baby resulting from an IVF pregnancy involving the implantation of multiple human embryos.The Times never makes it past the...

    Like so many other couples these days, the Toronto-area business executive and her husband put off having children for years as they built successful careers. Both parents were in their 40s and their first son just over a year old when this spring the woman became pregnant a second time. Seven weeks in, an ultrasound revealed the Burlington, Ont., resident was carrying twins. It came as a complete shock, said the mother, who asked not to be named. Were both career people. If we were going to have three children two years apart, someone else was going to...

    A Catholic couple who had sextuplets last month have revealed how they were told by doctors to abort some of the babies. Nuala Conway, who gave birth to the first sextuplets in the UK for more than 25 years, was warned about the high risks of carrying so many children. The first-time mother and her husband Austin were told at 14 weeks that they could terminate some of them to reduce the risk during the pregnancy. But the former fashion store worker insisted she was putting her faith in God and wanted to go ahead.

    Daily Telegraph (UK) ^ | 13 Jun 2009 | Jonathan Wynne-Jones
    The mother of the UK's first sextuplets for more than a quarter of a century has told how she ignored medical advice to abort several of the foetuses. Nuala Conway, 26, from Dunamore in Co Tyrone, said she was warned about the high risks of carrying on with the multiple pregnancy, but decided to put her faith in God. She was given the option of terminating some of the unborn babies at 14 weeks and was advised that this was the best option. However, Mrs Conway, who is a Roman Catholic, said that the suggestion of a termination made her...

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota, June 12, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) A Minnesota couple welcomed the birth of all six of their sextuplets at St. Lukes Hospital in Minneapolis yesterday,although the couples and their childrens story would have been far different if doctors had their way. "The babies arrived sooner than we'd hoped for, but we are optimistic," father Ryan Morrison said in a statement. "Brianna is doing well. Thanks to all who are praying for our family. We are very happy to be parents." After 22 weeks, Brianna Morrison gave birth to four boys and two girls just before midnight Sunday. All six...
  • Too Much to Carry?

    Destroying a fetus requires three hands: one to hold the ultrasound transducer on the patients belly; one to inject the needle and maneuver it into a position near the fetal heart; another to draw out the metal rod at the core of the needle and replace it with the vial of potassium chloride. . . . [Dr.] Evans worked for a while trying to get the needle into the right spot. "Im not in," he said at one point, tensely. Then he pinned [Fetus] C with the needle, and pushed the plunger to release the chemical. The fetus, which had...

    We can all agree that when pro-abortionists get their mitts on the abortion issue, not only is truth the first casualty, perspective, coherence, and the ability to evaluate their own behavior are also often thrown overboard for good measure. Having said that, a column that appeared in yesterday's Los Angeles Times may take the cake. It's one thing to be smarmy. It's quite another to use what is conveyed as a possible tragedy in the making to promote your political agenda, as does Dan Neil, author of "The abortion debate brought home," subtitled, "He and his wife have always been...

    As Chad Kingsbury watches his daughter playing in the sandbox behind their suburban Chicago house, the thought that has flashed through his mind a million times in her two years of life comes again: Chloe will never be sick. Not, at least, with the inherited form of colon cancer that has devastated his family, killing his mother, her father and her two brothers, and that he too may face because of a genetic mutation that makes him unusually susceptible. By subjecting Chloe to a genetic test when she was an eight-cell embryo in a petri dish, Mr. Kingsbury and his...
  • Abortion of Excess Babies Common with IVF

    VIRGINIA BEACH, Virginia, July 4, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) Excess babies are routinely aborted as part of in vitro fertilization techniques, a report by the Virginian-Pilot acknowledged yesterday. The report examined the problems associated with multiple births, a common occurrence when attempting to conceive and successfully carry a child using artificial technology. The success of IVF techniques typically rely on the insertion of multiple embryos to enhance a couples chances that at least one embryo will successfully implant and result in a pregnancy. Frequently, the procedure will result in more than one embryo implanting in the womb at a time, resulting...

    (AgapePress) - "[A]t the end of the day, the truth is that when you perform an abortion you are killing something," said Dr. David Molloy of the Australian Medical Association. For pro-lifers, that is a statement of the obvious. But what if you were confronted with the full horror of what that death represented -- and still didn't care? Is it possible that pro-abortionists could finally admit that abortion is murder, but then collectively shrug their shoulders? That seems to be the case after the release of a British documentary entitled My Fetus, which aired in Britain in April, and...

    <p>Over the past two weeks, decent people who consider themselves pro-choice became intimately acquainted with those heading the movement. To be sure, they didn't know this was whom they were meeting as they read what was to become the most talked-about New York Times Magazine article in years. Neither did the Times, claim editors, who last week admitted to the New York Sun that the protagonist of the recent "Lives" column was a New York Planned Parenthood advocate and consultant to Gloria Steinem--and not the Everyman for whom the space is normally reserved.</p>

There was a long pause, then she said, ''Are you sure you didn't take fertility drugs?'' I said, ''I'm positive.'' Peter and I were very shocked when she said there were three. ''You know, this changes everything,'' she said. ''You'll have to see a specialist.'' My immediate response was, I cannot have triplets. I was not married; I lived in a five-story walk-up in the...

How could they with Princeton University Prof. Peter Singers advocacy of post-birth infanticide gaining a stronghold in many university philosophy departments? Today, the previously unthinkable is humdrum. But not always. In Sundays New York Times, 34-year-old mother Amy Barrett published an article that truly is shocking, "When One is Enough." As she tells the story, when faced with an unexpected pregnancy, Barrett and her boyfriend were terrified to find out she had conceived tripletsidentical twins and a stand-alone. The solution?
