JUDGE CRITICIZES LESSER CHARGE AGAINST DR MORRISON

HALIFAX, NS., Nov 28 (LSN) – In an interesting development in the Nancy Morrison murder trial, Judge Hughes Randall criticized the crown prosecutors for announcing that it would proceed on a charge of manslaughter, not murder, against the Halifax respirologist. Morrison was charged last May in the killing of her cancer patient Paul Mills. Prosecutor Craig Botterill announced on Nov. 6 that the Public Prosecution Service felt the “appropriateness of mandatory life imprisonment” for first-degree murder was not in the public interest in this case and thus the lesser charge of manslaughter would be pursued (there is no minimum punishment […]

SUPREME COURT TO HEAR NEA CASE

WASHINGTON, Nov 28 (LSN) – The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear a case involving a 1990 law that imposed decency standards on funding decisions by the National Endowment for the Arts. A federal appeals court ruling struck down the law claiming it violated constitutional free-speech and due-process protections. The law required that the NEA use “artistic excellence and merit’’ as the criteria for judging funding applications, taking into consideration “general standards of decency and respect for the diverse beliefs and values of the American public.’‘ Congress was pushed to initiate the law after disgusting and extremely offensive “art” […]

LATIMER – LOVING FATHER OR MURDERER AND RAPIST

BATTLEFORD, SASK., Nov 27 (LSN) – Yesterday, Alberta Report magazine revealed some strange, heretofore- unreported news involving Robert Latimer and his trial for the “mercy-killing” of his 12-year-old daughter Tracy. Amazingly, the media and crown prosecutors have ignored Latimer’s 1974 trial in the forcible rape of a 15-year-old girl. Further, the same judge, Justice E.D. Bayda, who presided over the rape trial 21 years before, was one of the three appellant judges in Latimer’s appeal in his 1995 conviction of second- degree murder. After rejecting his appeal in 1995, along with the other two justices, Justice Bayda dissented on the […]

OTTAWA, Nov 28 (LSN) – The flagrant persecutor of Christians and unborn children, Chinese President Jiang Zemin arrived in Canada’s capital yesterday.

BRAZIL INITIATES STRONGER POPULATION CONTROL

BRASILIA, Nov 27 (LSN) – Brazil’s Health Ministry announced yesterday that they have begun offering free sterilizations to men and women. Despite long-standing opposition from the Catholic Church, President Fernando Henrique Cardoso endorsed the program earlier this year. Advocates of the plan have passed it off as a means of reducing abortions. True to form, the population-control plan applies to men and women over 25, or who already have two children. Sterilizations will be paid for at tax-payer expense in public hospitals. Currently a bill to legalize abortions in cases or rape or “risk” to the mother is working its […]

DOCTOR GROUP CALLS FOR BAN ON DO-IT-YOURSELF SUICIDE PILL

Catholic World News Nov 25 DARWIN, Australia (CWN) – The Australian Medical Association on Tuesday called for a ban on a proposed do- it-yourself suicide pill being concocted by assisted-suicide activists in Australia, the US, Britain, and the Netherlands. Dr. Philip Nitschke, Australia’s leading suicide doctor, said yesterday that an international coalition of doctors was close to perfecting a recipe for a suicide formula made out of easily obtained ingredients. Dr. David Meadows, an AMA spokesman, said the suicide pill would have to be banned as a poison because children may try to experiment with it on themselves or others. […]

THE PERVERSION OF AMERICA’S CHILDREN

NEW YORK, Nov 26 (LSN) – Following President Clinton’s recent endorsement of a grade-school “diversity” training to encourage students to be tolerant of minorities, homosexuals and the disabled, US schools have been trying to outdo one another in the homosexualization of students. The National Education Association, the largest teachers union in the United States, adopted a resolution urging schools to develop activities and programs that “increase acceptance of and sensitivity to” diverse groups, including homosexuals. Many parents have been horrified by the homosexual propaganda being forced upon their children beginning in kindergarten and even earlier. The most pressing problem, however, […]

RADICAL FEMINISTS CLAMOUR FOR CASH

LONDON, UK, Nov 26 (LSN) – A motley crew of pro-abortion and pro-lesbian feminists are eyeing greedily the $1 billion Ted Turner UN contribution. The group, calling themselves the “Global Campaign for Women’s Human Rights”, demanded that half the money in donations to the UN should go to support their agenda. Placing their skewed version of women’s rights ahead of the need for food, clothing, and shelter for the poor, as well as international security, the extremists made their appeal in London yesterday. Charlotte Bunch, head of the Center for Women’s Global Leadership at Rutgers University, called on the UN […]

KEVORKIAN GETS WARNING

DETROIT, Nov 25 (LSN) – Macomb County, Prosecutor Carl Marlinga issued a warning to Jack Kervokian today. In response to Dr. Death’s offer to “donate” organs from his victims, Marlinga warned, “The removal of vital organs would go beyond assisting suicide, and could constitute the crime of first-degree murder. Removing organs (after death) constitutes the crime of mutilating the human body. It’s probably easier to prove than even the assisted-suicide charge.” Conviction on a first-degree murder charge carries a mandatory life sentence, while mutilating a body has a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Calling the Kevorkian offer of […]

CLINICS WORRY ABOUT LOSING FUNDS

TORONTO, Nov 26 (LSN) – Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion “health” clinics complained vented concerns today regarding the loss of funding. Ontario’s downloading of services will require municipalities to fund the clinics beginning next year. The province currently pays $19 million a year for such “services”. Pro-abortion groups are concerned that municipal governments are less likely to support “sexual health services,” because they are closer to ordinary Ontarioans, and less easily manipulated by the pro-abortion elite. Health Minister Liz Witmer told reporters on Monday, however, that the government is drafting regulations that will make some public-health programs mandatory, and that […]
