FOCUS ON THE FAMILY REJECTS CBSC CLAIMS

VANCOUVER, Aug 28 (LSN) – Focus on the Family (Canada) yesterday condemned the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council for threatening the freedom of religion in this country. The Christian pro-family organization was responding to a recent ruling “censuring” the organization for a radio broadcast discussing homosexuality.  Dr. Darrel Reid, President of the Christian pro-family organization called on the CBSC to withdraw the decision saying, “this decision represents an assault upon the rights of Canadians to speak of the ramifications of their most deeply-held religious beliefs.”  The CBSC condescended to allow Christians to continue to call homosexuality “sinful,” but apparently without concern […]

INCESTUOUS 17-YEAR-OLD STILL FACES THREAT OF DEPORTATION

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., Aug 20 (LSN) – Despite the efforts of prosecutors, a 17-year-old who is accused of raping his 12-year-old sister (resulting in her parents traveling with her out of state to obtain a late term abortion) may still face deportation. According to earlier reports, prosecutors tried to save the boy (and his family) from deportation by charging him with a lesser offense.  This controversial move by Macomb County Prosecutor Carl Marlinga, who was criticized for saying that the crime looked like nothing more than “a case of youthful sexual experimentation,” may end up serving no useful purpose at […]

EMPLOYERS SHOULD NOT BE FORCED TO FUND ABORTION, CALIFORNIA GOVERNOR

LONG BEACH, Calif., Aug 28 (LSN) – Pro-life, pro-family California Governor Pete Wilson vowed to reject,  for the third time, a plan which would force California employers to cover abortifacients including the birth-control pill and the IUD in their health plans. The current bill provides an exemption for employers with religious objections, but it has also been changed to make employees of these employers earning up to $66,000 eligible for vouchers for state funded abortifacient contraceptives.  This new portion of the bill confounds the claims of the bill’s advocates who said that the intent was to ensure the poor had […]

J.A.M.A. FALSELY CLAIMS UNBIASED LOOK AT ABORTION

CHICAGO, IL, Aug 27 (LSN) – In yesterday’s release of the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) editor George D. Lundberg claims that the journal has “no editorial position on abortion, late-  term or otherwise.” Later in the same column, however, Lundberg says “Americans are constitutionally guaranteed religious freedom.” He considers abortion to be a religious issue – a decision to be reached by the pregnant woman, after consultation with the father (if possible), members of her family, perhaps a religious advisor and the woman’s physician. Apparently, to Lunberg this is a position of immutable reality, not an editorial […]

MEDICAL JOURNAL REPORTS DANGERS OF IVF

WALTHAM, MA, Aug 27 (LSN) – A study on In Vitro Fertilization in the latest edition of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) admits that IVF often requires the death of many conceived embryos before one successful birth is achieved, calling multiple births a “high risk” factor.  IVF has a poor success rate in the first place, so the procedure invariably includes the implantation of multiple (usually 2-5) fertilized embryos in the mother in each “cycle” (attempt at successful impregnation of the embryo into the mothers womb). Cases when more than one of the embryos is successfully implanted in […]

CANADIAN GOVERNMENT PUSHING EXTREMIST HOT AIR THEORY

OTTAWA, Aug 27 (LSN) – In a new push to inspire public acceptance of the notorious Kyoto agreement the Canadian government has resorted to fear tactics insinuating that warmer weather this year is due to human activities. On Monday Environment Minister Christine Stewart proclaimed “Clearly the time has come to view our climate as a serious issue. We must take action now, even as a precautionary measure, to mitigate future warming.”  Scientists appear to be engaged in an increasingly vigorous debate over the legitimacy of global warming –  a debate that politicians and the media in Canada and the US […]
