Last month the Chilean legislature hosted an “Inter-Parliamentary Meeting […]

Freret noted.

CHICAGO, Apr 14 (LSN) – On Thursday, US Congressman Henry Hyde, R-Ill., testified as a character witness for Pro-Life Action League president Joseph Scheidler.

Hyde testified that he had known Scheidler as an honest man for 25 years. The NOW is attempting to shut down pro-life activity, by engaging pro-life leaders in costly lawsuits.

KLEIN CAVES IN TO VRIEND RULING

EDMONTON, Apr 9 (LSN) – Yesterday, Alberta Premier Ralph Klein revealed his position on the Vriend Supreme Court ruling, which ordered Alberta to include special rights for homosexuals in the province’s human rights code.

UPDATE ON U.S. TRIAL OF PRO-LIFERS

CHICAGO, Apr 9 (LSN) – Lawyers for the National Organization of Women (NOW) are worried about the upcoming testimonies of Norma McCorvey and Sandra Cano in their crucial racketeering case against prominent US pro-life leaders. Ms McCorvey and Mrs Cano were the “Roe” and “Doe” of the 1973 Supreme Court cases Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, which legalized abortion in the US. Both women have since converted to the pro-life cause.  Realizing the women could seriously undermine their attempt to silence the US pro-life movement,  NOW and company obtained a ruling to conceal the women’s history from the […]
