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 […]
CINCINNATI, Apr 8 (LSN) – Larry Flynt, publisher of the pornographic magazine Hustler, was indicted yesterday by a Hamilton County grand jury for selling hard-core pornographic videos to a 14-year-old boy. Flynt, who was idolized as a free-speech martyr in the recent film, The People v. Larry Flynt, was charged along with his brother Jimmy on 15 counts, including disseminating material harmful to a juvenile, pandering obscenity, conspiracy, and engaging in a pattern of corruption at Flynt’s downtown bookstore. Since Hollywood remade him as a hero, Flynt has taunted local authorities to arrest him, by handing out free copies of […]
STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Apr 8 (LSN) – Sweden, the darling of leftists the world over for its strong support of the UN, and its pioneering liberal social-engineering projects, has suffered another blow to its “politically-correct” image. It was recently discovered that 4,500 people who were subjected to frontal lobotomies without their consent from 1944 to 1963, including a seven-year- old boy who was diagnosed as hyperactive. Sweden’s state television corporation (SVT) revealed the human-rights violations in a programme aired last Sunday. Last year, it was revealed that approximately 60,000 people were involuntarily sterilized from 1935 to 1976, under Sweden’s eugenics law.
NEW YORK, Apr 8 (LSN) – The March 24 issue of USA Today reported yet another finding of genetic abnormalities resulting from the practice of in vitro fertilization. At a meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, experts in the field noted that one of the techniques used in the IVF procedure, called intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), is suspected of causing infertility, and increasing the chances of cystic fibrosis and cancer, in children conceived by the method. Apparently, the technological means of weeding out abnormal sperm and selecting healthy sperm for injection is inferior to the body’s natural method. […]
LONDON, Apr 8 (LSN) – According to the Scripps Howard News Service, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the UN Population Fund are preparing to issue aid workers with a field manual for “reproductive health” in refugee camps. Pro-life observers say the manual is proof positive of the U.N.‘s reckless disregard for the sanctity of human life and the health and safety of women, in its relentless pursuit of population control. Some humanitarian aid workers have balked at using the manual, and aid groups Save the Children and Oxfam have removed their names from the manual. Also, […]
BEIJING, Apr 7 (LSN) – Media in China reported Monday that the State Family Planning Research Institute and Beijing No. 3 Pharmaceutical Plant have concocted a “morning after” abortifacient pill. The Chinese government will use the pill as part of the country’s strictly enforced “one- child policy,” which results in widespread female infanticide, forced sterilization and abortion, and a staggering rate of baby-killing in general.
VANCOUVER, Apr 7 (LSN) – In a press release last week, the Pro-Life Society of British Columbia retaliated against the hysterical charges brought recently by pro-abortion forces and the NDP government. BC Health Minister Penny Priddy (NDP) accused the Kelwona Right to Life Association of using “terror tactics” in providing concerned patients with information about which local doctors are involved in abortion. Abortionists and their supporters said the group was compiling a “hit list.” In response, Ted Gerk, Communications Director of the Pro-Life Society of BC, noted that the Vancouver Women’s Health Collective, a group which shares office space and […]
NEW YORK, Apr 7 (LSN) – In the April edition of First Things, Paul Swope, Northeast Project Director of the Caring Foundation and President of LifeNet Services, writes a thought-provoking article about the latest research on the psychology of modern American women, and their views about crisis pregnancies. Swope argues the results indicate pro-lifers need to tailor their strategies according to the feelings and thoughts of women. The research in question seeks to understand why most American women are “personally opposed” to abortion,” while favouring “choice.” The findings indicate that most women do not see any “good” coming from an […]
NEW YORK, Apr 6 (LSN) – In the final hours of debate in the prepatory conference for establishing an International Criminal Court, pro-life observers were worried that if no one contested listing “enforced pregnancy” as a crime, it would simply be rubber-stamped by the actual conference, to be held in Rome this summer. The Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (CAFHRI) said today that in response to this concern, the Vatican proposed replacing the term “enforced pregnancy” with the term “forced impregnation,” in the hope of stirring debate at the upcoming conference. The Vatican, of course, would prefer to see […]
LOS ANGELES, Apr 6 (LSN) – Last week the Associated Press reported that Efren Saldivar, a respiratory care practitioner at the Glendale Adventist Medical Center, was interviewed by police and confessed to 40 to 50 murders of terminally-ill patients. Although Saldivar admitted he considered himself an “angel of death,” reports indicate that he may never be charged with murder. State law requires additional evidence to prosecute in such cases, for fear of forced or false confessions. In this case, since the lethal injections which Saldivar said he used to kill some patients deteriorate quickly, corroborating evidence may be hard to […]
