Pro-life former Liberal MPs to Trudeau: rescind anti-life edict

Yesterday, seven former Liberal Members of Parliament sent an open letter to Justin Trudeau regarding his edict earlier this year that pro-lifers cannot even run for a Liberal Party nomination. We reprint the letter below. Trudeau responded to the letter with a tweet: "The days when old men get to decide what a woman does with her body are long gone. Times have changed for the better. #LPC defends rights." Here is the open letter: Dear ... (Continue reading)

Pro-lifers getting noticed in NB election

Here are the facts on the back of the postcard. Campaign Life Coalition Youth (CLCY) and the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform (CCBR) have been active this week in the New Brunswick election, raising the issue of abortion during the campaign at a time when most politicians would prefer to ignore the issue. CLCY and CCBR are pamphleting neighbourhoods and distributing literature that includes graphic photos of abortion. Some people, ... (Continue reading)

Feminist orthodoxy in school

Students for Life of America tweeted about a young Swedish nurse-midwife who was offered a job by the Höglandssjukhuset Women’s Center after successfully completing an internship in the spring of 2013. However, once Ellinor Grimmark told the center’s staff that her faith prevented her from committing abortions, she was told that “she was no longer welcome to work with them.” They questioned “whether a person with such views actually can become a midwife.” Grimmark has filed a ...

Richard Dawkins’ Down syndrome fiasco

Atheist writer and activist Richard Dawkins has come under fire this week, after a tweet calling Ireland “civilised, except in (the area of abortion)” morphed into a conversation about the ethics of bringing children with Down syndrome into the world. Dawkins believes it is immoral to do so. A user called Aidan McCourt replied “994 human beings with Down syndrome deliberately killed before birth in England and Wales in 2012. Is that civilised?” Dawkins responded ... (Continue reading)

Non-shocking story about shocking health regulation violations

The Daily Caller highlights a story from Ohio about an abortion facility that has been fined $25,000 for "shocking health and sanitation violations." These stories are no longer all that shocking because freestanding abortion facilities often slum it in terms of adhering to medical regulations. As the Kermit Gosnell story illustrates, state regulators often ignore abortion mill violations. Here's a partial list of violations: The Bedford Heights Planned Parenthood was notified of the fine in a ... (Continue reading)

Disappearing Down Syndrome

Wesley Smith writes about how there are fewer people with Down Syndrome (and dwarfism) because about 90% of children diagnosed in utero with Down are aborted, and many parents who do not abort are viewed with contempt for bringing children into the world with such disabilities. We've written before about the dangers of expanding genetic screening when there is no treatment or cure for babies diagnosed with various genetic flaws. And editorial we wrote 12 years ...

Euthanasia legalization leads to ‘mass deaths’

The Daily Mail reports: "As assisted suicide bill goes to Lords, Dutch watchdog who once backed euthanasia warns UK of 'slippery slope' to mass deaths." In six years, the number of euthanasia deaths has doubled." Alex Schadenberg explains in his book Exposing Vulnerable People that so-called safeguards in the Netherlands and Belgium have been ignored and that the number of euthanasia and assisted-suicide deaths have risen rapidly. Many people think that euthanasia and assisted-suicide is used extremely ... (Continue reading)

Feminists vs. UN population controllers

C-Fam reports:  A partnership among abortion backers is showing cracks as feminists in the Global South are pushing back against environmentalists promoting population control measures. During the inaugural meeting of a new U.N. endeavor on the environment, one group took to social media to refute the “dubious linking” between population and climate change, arguing that “population control strategies inevitably lead to abuses, coercion, and the violation of women’s fundamental rights.” The Malaysia-based group ARROW advocates for ...

U.S. Supreme Court strikes down ‘buffer zone’ law

The Supreme Court of the United States has struck down a Massachusetts law barring pro-life protesters from being within 35-feet of an abortion clinic. The unanimous ruling found that the law violated the first amendment protections of freedom of speech. While the ruling was unanimous, there were three opinions (Chief Justice John Roberts was joined by the Court's four liberals, Justice Antonin Scalia was joined by Justice Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy, and Justice Samuel Alito). Justice Roberts said ... (Continue reading)

Hamilton city council doesn’t like ‘graphic images’

Hamilton’s city council voted last week to complain to the provincial and federal government, asking for a ban of graphic photos of abortion victims. The Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform is continuing its “Face the Children” campaign, which seems to be the latest use of graphic images in the area that has upset local politicians. CBC posted a story on the matter, reporting “The CCBR distributed as many as 50,000 postcards to Hamilton ... (Continue reading)

Celebrating childlessness?

Today’s XOJane deception is brought to you by a young woman named Amanda Blum. While working with her in the family garage one day, Blum’s father admitted that he never wanted children. “There was no emotion in his voice about it.” Blum remembered. “It was said with the same emphasis one might use while mentioning what they ate for breakfast.” From a young age, Blum herself knew that she did not want kids. Though she commended her ... (Continue reading)

Abortion is not just a religious issue: libertarian

Julie Borowski has a YouTube video (about two minutes) entitled "Abortion isn't just a religious issue." Borowski says "Don't hurt innocent people" is a principle non-religious people can hold and is, indeed, a libertarian principle. That the preborn child is a human being is not a matter of religious dogma, but scientific fact. Opposing abortion expands liberty by protecting the preborn child from deadly force.
