    Science: The president's Council on Bioethics is summarily dismissed when it disagrees on the need for more federally funded embryonic stem cell research. The scientific method doesn't include firing those who disagree with you.Inspectors general are apparently not the only ones to pay for annoying the White House by doing their job. The 18-member council existed to provide the president with advice on the moral and ethical implications of the rapid advances in science and medical research. It exists no more. The council existed to ponder whether we should do something just because we can. Apparently President Obama wanted not...

    President Obama's Supreme Court nominee has made an astonishing admission -- she has never considered whether an unborn child has any rights. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) says he had a "good meeting" with Judge Sonia Sotomayor on Wednesday that covered a broad range of issues, but none of his concerns about the high court nominee were eased. DeMint, chairman of the Senate Steering Committee, says he remains deeply disturbed with her view of the Second Amendment. "She was unwilling to say the Second Amendment protects a fundamental right that applies to all Americans, which raises serious questions about her...

    Guadalajara, Mexico, Mar 30, 2009 (CNA) -- The legislature of the Mexican state of Jalisco has approved a change to the state’s constitution so that it protects the right to life of the unborn from the moment of conception. Representatives of one of the most important state legislatures in Mexico modified article 228 of the state constitution. Javier Guizar Macias of the PRI party said, “Instead of incarcerating someone who undergoes abortion… the reform stipulates giving the person medical care, psychological counseling, so that she can reflect on the issue.” The measure passed by a vote of 31-0. with 2...

    “Thank you President Bush God Bless” is what 14-year-old Chrissy Doolittle’s sign read. The Leesburg resident stood holding her sign by the Washington Monument for nearly an hour and a half Saturday afternoon with her mother and grandmother to thank President George W. Bush for his eight years in office. Chrissy’s family was part of a group of around 150 people – the majority of them from Loudoun County – who wanted to make sure that their voices of gratitude were heard, even as Bush’s approval ratings hover around 30 percent and the area and nation turn their focus toward...

    The Dutch parliament is considering whether protecting unborn children should supersede the rights of parents to procreate Women in the Netherlands who are deemed by the state to be unfit mothers should be sentenced to take contraception for a prescribed period of two years, according to a draft bill before the Dutch parliament.The proposed legislation would further punish parents who defied it by taking away their newborn infant. "It targets people who have been the subject of judicial intervention because of their bad parenting," explained the author of the bill Marjo Van Dijken of the socialist PvDA. "If someone refuses...

    Again, my friend Randy Alcorn was recently asked by a young woman, "Should we vote for who we think should lead our country solely based on their stance on abortion?" You can read Randy's responses to that question on his website and blog, Eternal Prospective Ministries. I would respond to it by simply saying, we all will answer that question in just one week, when we go to the ballot boxes. Winning the election is not just about what the underdogs, like John McCain and Sarah Palin – two maverick pro-life advocates, should do. But it's about what the citizens,...

    Bombay, India (LifeNews.com) -- As people in India join a national abortion debate following an appeals court's rejection of a couple's request for a late-term abortion, the issue of fetal pain is coming into play.

Kanwaljeet Anand, a pediatrician and fetal pain specialist at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, is considered the top American expert on the subject. Anand has conducted research on the subject for over two decades and he also happens to be a native Indian. Anand told...

    France's supreme court has ruled that parents of miscarried or stillborn children can register a name for the child, no matter what stage of development the child was at at the time of miscarriage or birth, reports the AFP. Previous to this most recent ruling, parents in France were allowed to register a name for miscarried or stillborn children, but only after 22 weeks gestation, or if the child weighed over 1.1 pounds. This new ruling gives parents the right to claim the body of their child, which, until this point, was incinerated by the hospital along with other waste...

    Families of Victims Pleased that Unborn Victims of Crime Act Will Come to a Vote in Canada's Parliament By John-Henry Westen OTTAWA, December 6, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A Parliamentary subcommittee has ruled the Unborn Victims of Crime Act, introduced by Conservative MP Ken Epp, 'votable', meaning that it will be able to come before the full House of Commons for a vote. A similar bill proposed last year by Conservative MP Leon Benoit was deemed non-votable at the subcommittee stage. If passed, the law would allow criminal charges to be laid in the death or injury of an unborn child...

    A PIONEERING new form of keyhole surgery will be used to save the lives of dozens of unborn babies every year, Scotland on Sunday can reveal. The remarkable technique involves a 'fetoscope' about the width of three grains of sugar which is used to internally examine babies while they are still in the womb. The resulting images will allow Scottish doctors to perform surgical and other procedures on fetuses - many of whom would otherwise die - from as little as 24 weeks' gestation. At this point, the fetus would fit in the palm of an adult man's hand and...

    After a test showed that one of her twins had Down Syndrome, a 38-year-old woman in Italy had the handicapped fetus aborted this summer -- only to find out that the hospital killed the healthy twin. So she came back for a second abortion and filed a complaint against the medical staff. It turns out that the twins had switched places between the last scan and the actual abortion. This is just one of many cases showing that, as often as not, aborted fetuses get the last laugh. In incidents like this one, you can almost hear them. Yes, when...
