You Must Abort!
It is hard for persons in democratic societies to grasp how China's party-state can control the fertility of China's millions. The effort starts with a barrage of anti-child propaganda in the schools and workplaces, and then moves to open intimidation in banners and slogans posted in public places. Here are some pictures of the kind of public threats the authorities make against those women who may be pregnant with "illegal" children.

Court Records Indicate Nearly 1,000 Abortion Patients Likely Hospitalized Annually In Texas

Obama’s Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiative Giving Millions To Abortion Giant Planned Parenthood
When President Obama said that he did not want his daughters punished with a pregnancy- he wasn’t kidding. Perhaps that was the motivation behind his creation of the The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) a government agency and division of the Health and Human Services Department.

A week ago, I told you about Brenn, a 15-year old who spends her free time praying outside her local Planned Parenthood clinic (a clinic that was just shuttered last week, in part due to her efforts!). Now I want to tell you about Samantha. She is 12 now, but she was 11 when she figured out what part she could play to help stop abortion in America.

New! Does equality breed violence against women?

Carolyn Moynihan
The statistics in a recent international report on violence against women are deeply disturbing: one in three women has been physically or sexually abused; one in 10 has experienced sexual violence; one in 20 has been raped. Where? Not in a developing country mired in civil war, but in Europe, wealthy, women's rights obsessed, feminist finger-wagging Europe. How can this be?

New! On birth control women do not speak with one voice

Carolyn Moynihan
It's a funny thing that what 40,000-odd women say about a policy supposedly for women is of no interest to three of the most powerful women in the United States.

University Faculty for Life: Submission of Concern to the Canadian CIHR Re the 'Human Stem Cell Research Recommendations 2001'

Dianne N. Irving
We are concerned scientifically that these Recommendations: fail to acknowledge the scientific fact that the immediate product of human fertilization and human cloning is a new unique living human being, ... that individual cells and groups of cells from both totipotent and “pluripotent” human embryonic stem cells can "heal" themselves and exist as new individual human beings; uses discarded "scientific" myths such as the "biogenetic law" ... and the "pre-embryo", and a false scientific distinction between "therapeutic" and "reproductive" kinds of research; ... bans only one scientific method of cloning, i.e., somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT). Ethicallyof concern to us is that: the first ethical requirement of scientific research is not met; the means used to reach good goals are not considered; a specific defunct, normative, and eugenic "ethics" is ambiguously employed; neither mothers or fathers could give legally or ethically valid informed consent ... .

An agenda for the Silent Generation

Kevin Ryan
There is no shortage of issues awaiting the attention of the under-40s.

It is apparently okay to painfully kill some babies!

Jim Sedlak
There has been a great deal of activity in Washington, D.C. the last several weeks to pass a bill that backers say would ban all abortions after 20 weeks because the preborn child can feel pain. Well, not really all abortions. You see, from the beginning, a federal bill (HR1797) has had a limited exception to "protect" the life of the mother under certain circumstances. All of the state bills trying to ban the same abortions have the same exception.

Iran, Abortion - and Islamic Embryology?

Dianne N. Irving
Does Islamic law itself justify early abortions? Could the current change in abortion law in Iran (see news article below) be just the first step toward justifying the use of abortifacients, genetic pre-selection, human cloning, human embryonic stem cell research, human genetic engineering, etc.?
