unborn child and an adorable born child. It simply states

Plan B and the Demise of
By Anna Higgins, Family Research Council
Parents are meant to be the fundamental guiding
influence of a child’s life. They are responsible for nurturing, educating,
protecting, and providing for their children. This system, established at
creation by God, is the foundation of every stable, prosperous society.
However, our government has attempted to
undermine parental rights and distance parents as much as possible from
important decisions affecting their children. This is happening despite the
fact that the Supreme Court has long upheld the highest standards of protection
for the rights of parents to educate and bring up their children without
The latest blow to the traditional family
structure has been leveled by “reproductive rights” groups, a federal judge,
and the FDA – all of which support the availability of a high dose hormonal
contraceptive over the counter to young girls without a prescription.
Women Who Became Pregnant
Through Sexual Assault Say, "Ask Us"
Petition Signers Say Using Their Situation to Promote
Abortion Stops Women from Getting Authentic Help

and sexual assault pregnancy is a difficult subject for many people, especially
since no one wants to hurt those who have already been traumatized. For many,
abortion seems like a compassionate answer for women and girls who become
pregnant as a result of rape or incest. But a group of women who experienced
pregnancies resulting from sexual assault say that policymakers need to listen
to those who've been there, instead of using this issue to promote abortion.
Organ Donation: Crossing the
Linking the "right to die" with organ
donation has opened a terrible Pandora's Box
By Nancy Valko, RN, Voices Online
the US, whether we are renewing our drivers' licenses, watching the TV news or
just picking up a newspaper, it's impossible to miss the campaign to persuade
us to sign an organ donation card. We see story after story about grieving
relatives who have been comforted by donating a loved one's organs after a
tragic death, and grateful people whose lives have been changed by the
"gift of life".
in the understandable zeal to save or extend as many lives as possible through
organ transplantation, are some ethical boundaries being crossed?
example, since the early 1990s, a little-known but disturbing revolution has
been occurring in organ donation. A new procedure now called "donation
after cardiac death" (DCD) has been quietly added to brain death organ
donation in more and more hospitals in the United States and in other
countries. It was made possible by linking the so-called right to die with
organ donation. Now, doctors in Belgium are using DCD criteria for
determination of death to harvest organs after euthanasia.
Schizophrenic Society Outraged
at Viable Babies Murdered at Philadelphia "House of Horrors" But
Accepts Same-Gestational-Age Babies Being Aborted in the Darkness of the Womb

human mind can hold onto blatant contradictions, but in order to do so it must
block out certain unpleasant truths. One such uncomfortable truth has now come
knocking at the door in Philadelphia, where a "house of horrors"
abortion clinic was discovered early this year. At this clinic viable babies
were outright murdered after their births had been induced and they had been
fully delivered. Clinic staff have testified that on hundreds of occasions,
second and third trimester babies that were breathing, moving and even crying
were slaughtered by having their necks slit or their spines severed.
everyone agrees that killing newborn babies constitutes murder. That is also
the law, which is the main reason why clinic owner Dr Kermit Gosnell may face
the death penalty if convicted. In recent weeks, five of his staff have pleaded
guilty to various charges including murder, and some may be sentenced to
hundreds of years in prison.
yet, late-term abortions, effectively right up to the moment of natural birth,
are not illegal in Canada or in many parts of the United States. If Gosnell had
chosen to act in medically acceptable ways by dismembering or killing the fetus
within the womb just before removing it, he would likely be a hero in the eyes
of many for providing an essential service that empowers women.
knows, he could have gotten the highest civilian award -- a mere three years
ago we bestowed the Order of Canada upon Henry Morgentaler, a man who claims to
have personally performed over 100,000 abortions.
