    With the rise of prenatal screening tests across Europe and the United States, the number of babies born with Down syndrome has significantly decreased, but few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland. Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.
  • 15 Teenagers Treated for Rabies After Engaging in Bestiality with Donkey

    Rabat Fifteen minors who sexually assaulted a donkey in the small rural town of Sidi Kamel in the communal providence of Sidi Kacem have been treated for rabies infections received from the animal. The sexually frustrated children and teenagers stayed at the Mechraa Belksiri Hospital for one week to receive rabies vaccinations after the animal transmitted the disease to them, explained Moroccan daily Al Akhbar in its August 10 edition. The incident has put the families of these fifteen young people into distress and horror, reports the daily.

    Evolutionary Biologist Now Wants Doctors to Kill Suicidal Depressed People Michael Egnor August 9, 2017, 10:48 AM Darwinist Jerry Coyne, who has recently advocated the medical killing of handicapped babies so they won’t “suffer,” has added another class of people to his kill list: people who are depressed. In response to a doctor’s suggestion in an article that a patient who was not physically suffering but who was depressed should be offered euthanasia, Coyne writes: My answer, as was that of another expert discussed in the piece, is “yes”, but I’d offer them antidepressants first… Goodness gracious. Coyne is now...
  • The Kennedy Center Honors abandons the arts for pop culture

    Washington Post ^ | 8/3/2017 | Philip Kennicott
    For years now, the Kennedy Center Honors have been devolving from an award that recognizes stellar achievement across a diverse and rich tradition of American arts into an entertainment-driven event that rewards star power and pop-culture cachet. Representatives of the wide range of traditional arts, including classical music, opera and ballet, have been slowly edged out until, it seemed, they were lucky to be represented with a single award among the five given out each year. This year even that toehold looks precarious. Of the five artists to receive the 2017 Kennedy Center Honors, only dancer and choreographer Carmen de...

    In 2016, same-sex marriage was legalized in Colombia. One year later, the courts have now recognized a polyamorous family of three men. And there is no slippery slope. As reported by the Daily Mail: Actor Victor Hugo Prada and his two partners, sports instructor John Alejandro Rodriguez and journalist Manuel Jose Bermudez, have signed legal papers with a solicitor in the city of Medellin, establishing them as a family unit with inheritance rights. We wanted to validate our household and our rights, because we had no solid legal basis establishing us as a family, said one of the men,...

    The death cult is gaining ground courtesy of political ghouls who see vote counts from left-leaning organizations who advocate both abortion and euthanasia Though gone from the face of Earth for some 51 years, the ghost of Margaret Sanger still haunts the vulnerable, young and old, from the grave. Widely regarded as founder of the modern day birth control movement, Sanger and Hillary Clinton remain the sacrosanct champions of baby-parts-for-sale merchants, Planned Parenthood.

    (CNN)The State Department on Monday formally apologized for what it describes as decades of discrimination against LGBT employees and job applicants, a rare statement meant to right wrongs that preceded current Secretary of State John Kerry. "These actions were wrong then, just as they would be wrong today," Kerry said in a statement issued by the department in his name. "On behalf of the Department, I apologize to those who were impacted by the practices of the past." Kerry has been under pressure in recent weeks to issue a public apology. In November, Sen. Ben Cardin, a Maryland Democrat who...

    Snopes, FactCheck.org, Politifact, and ABC News will help Facebook make good on four of the six promises Mark Zuckerberg made about fighting fake news without it becoming the arbiter of truth. It will make fake news posts less visible, append warnings from fact checkers to fake news in the feed, make reporting hoaxes easier, and disrupt the financial incentives of fake news spammers. Were not looking to get into the grey area of opinion Facebooks VP of News Feed Adam Mosseri tells me. What we are focusing on with this work is specifically the worst of the work clear...

    President Barack Obama pushed today to renew focus on a so-called public option in the insurance marketplace -- a popular item among progressives, but one Obama publicly hedged against during negotiations leading to the passage of his signature health care law. In a speech in Miami, Obama said the public option would give folks more options in those places where theres just not enough insurers to compete. But the president did not mention how during the 2009 negotiations over whats now known as Obamacare the White House used the public option as a bargaining chip -- dropping it as a...

    A child suffering a fatal illness has become the first minor to be euthanized since age restrictions on mercy killings were lifted in the country. Mercy killings have become increasingly common in Benelux countries. The head of Belgiums federal euthanasia commission gave no details of the child beyond saying the patient was an exceptional case of a young person with a terminal illness, the Het Nieuwsblad newspaper reported. [] Any request for euthanasia must be made by the child, approved by a panel of physicians, an independent psychiatrist or psychologist and have parental consent. But the case files which...

    On ABC This Week, June 19, Senator Chris Murphy revealed what Second Amendment supporters have said was the anti-Second Amendment strategy all along. Pass incremental infringements on the Second Amendment until nothing is left that means anything. That is why anti-Second Amendment plotters push so hard on legislation that seems unrelated to the current terrorist atrocity. They use it as an emotional vehicle for other legislation they normally could not pass. In the interview, ABCs Jon Karl is questioning Senator Chris Murphy from Connecticut. From the ABC transcript: KARL: theres these proposals. Your proposal wouldve done nothing in...

The video's narrator, a young pedophile, explains his "sexuality" and brands himself as a pedophile but not a "monster" or "child molester."

    On Sunday, Hillary Clinton told Chuck Todd that no unborn child has constitutional rights. "The unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights," under our current laws, said Clinton. She also said that "the woman's right to make decisions" is most important when it comes to abortion. Most notable perhaps is Clinton's use of "person." Oftentimes, when talking about a woman's right to choose, pro-choicers will use terminology that suggests the unborn is not a person or human, but a "fetus."

    You might think that this is grotesque. I certainly think it is grotesque. But should we be so judgemental about the unorthodox connubial arrangements of Anna and Lucy Decinque, 31-year-old identical twins who are sharing a bed with their 32-year-old electrical mechanic boyfriend Ben Byrne? The trio have lived together for the last four years in Perth, Western Australia, with the girls mother. The girls are inseparable, so much so that they have spent A$240,000 on various cosmetic improvements to look even more alike. They imitate each other and share everything. Even their boyfriend. When Anna and Lucy appeared on...

    (TRUNEWS) Pregnant women may soon be forced to make a difficult decision to abort their babies or giving up their organs after birth. National Health Service (NHS), the publically funded healthcare system in the U.K. is proposing that women be "supported" to carry the child to term for the sole purpose of harvesting the babys organs. There is currently a shortage of donated organs, according to The Express. The mother could choose not to have their child's organs removed by choosing abortion instead if tests during pregnancy determined the baby may have a birth defect. In some cases, if...

    An NHS Trust has issued an apology after it was revealed a ‘do not resuscitate’ was placed on a disabled man’s medical records - because he had Down’s syndrome. The Do Not Attempt Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (DNACPR) orders were placed on 51-year-old Andrew Waters’ records without his family’s consent or knowledge. They only made the shocking discovery after he was discharged from the Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate, Kent, for the second time in 2011. The reasons for the DNACPR order were stated to be: “Down’s Syndrome, unable to swallow (PEG fed), bed bound, learning difficulties.” It also...

    WASHINGTON/NEW YORK, Dec 9 (Reuters) - For the Republican Party, a tough job just got a little tougher thanks to Donald Trump. For years, Republicans, backed by some influential donors, have carefully cultivated the vote of Jewish-Americans who regard the security of Israel their top concern. Less than a week ago, a bevy of presidential candidates stood before a group of Jewish conservatives in Washington, asking for their support and declaring their solidarity with the Jewish state. But Trump's proposal to bar the entry of all foreign Muslims into the United States has upended some of those efforts, prominent Republicans...

    Quebec has refused an alleged federal request to suspend its “right-to-die” law, with the province’s justice and health ministers declaring the legislation will go into effect December 10 as planned, according to the Canadian Press. Liberal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould reportedly asked her provincial counterpart, Stephanie Vallee, on Wednesday to hold off implementing the province’s Bill 52 so the federal government can draft its own legislation. But Vallee says that Quebec will move ahead with Bill 52: “We’re staying the course, obviously,” she stated. That leaves pro-life advocates with “our great hope” that Quebec’s Superior Court will intervene and block...

    In 2003, Senator Rick Santorum was widely criticized for making a slippery slope argument about what can happen to a society and country once we turn away from Biblical morality. A mere 12 years later the former-Senators prediction has come tragically true. It is only Tuesday and yet already this week Salon has published a lengthy article written by a pedophile asking for our understanding. Although he claims to have never acted on his impulses (but spent years in a chat room with those who have), the entire piece condemns society you and I as bigots for ostracizing...
