Plan B and the Demise of Parental Rights
Anna Higgins, Family Research Council
are meant to be the fundamental guiding
influence of a child’s life. They are responsible for nurturing,
protecting, and providing for their children. This system, established
creation by God, is the foundation of every stable,
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 interference.
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.Read more
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
by Amy at Elliot Institute
Abortion 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.
Donation: Crossing the
Linking the "right to die" with organ donation has opened a terrible Pandora's Box
By Nancy Valko, RN, Voices Online
In 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".
But in the understandable zeal to save or extend as many lives as possible through organ transplantation, are some ethical boundaries being crossed?
For 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.Read more
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
Lee Singh, MercatorNet.com
The 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.
Almost 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.
And 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.
Who 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.Read more
