MINNEAPOLIS, Sept 28 (LSN) – In a press release from Life Decisions International (LDI) today, it was reported that one of the shareholders in the General Mills company has brought forward a resolution to end the company’s donations to charities. He said that the “charitable” funding of leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, has “negatively impacted sales, earnings, and ultimately shareholder value.” The resolution was vehemently opposed by the corporate leaders and thus has very little chance of passage. The shareholder meeting is being held today in Minneapolis.
OTTAWA, Sept 28 (LSN) – The Canadian Press reported Saturday that inmates in Canadian federal prisons were frequently used as experimental subjects in scientific research looking at the effects of drugs, electric shock, and sensory deprivation. During the same era that spawned abortion in Canada, our federal prison system was wrought with Nazi-style experimentation on inmates. While the government claims that prisoners gave consent to the experiments, ethicists have noted that consent given under conditions of forced incarceration cannot be considered freely given.
Dr. Guilty of Euthanasia Acquitted PARIS, Sept 28 (LSN) – Zenit news reported last week that Bernard Kouchner, France’s Secretary of Health, has agreed to acquit a doctor charged with violating medical ethics in the killing of one of his patients. Dr. Jean-Paul Duffaut, director of the geriatric service “Maurice Fenaille” of the Severac-le-Chateau hospital in Aveyron, admitted to killing a 92 year old patient with an injection of potassium-chloride. Duffaut failed to inform the victim’s family, but claims he acted after consulting other doctors who agreed to the action. Kouchner based his decision on a report from a […]
STRASBOURG, France, Sept 25 (LSN) – In an extremist anti-family decision this week, the European Court of Human Rights ruled Wednesday that a British law under which parents are permitted to use spanking as a form of discipline is illegal. The case, which threatens the time-tested relationship of parents to their children and which also undermines Britain’s national sovereignty, revolved around a boy who, according to his mother, attempted to stab his younger brother with a knife and as a result was spanked with a cane by his stepfather. CNN reported Wednesday that the European court has ordered Britain to […]
OTTAWA, Sept 25 (LSN) – The Canadian Press reported yesterday that Chris Patten, Hong Kong’s last British governor, wrote in a recent book entitled “East and West” that Canadian support of last year’s proposed UN condemnation of human rights abuses in China was withdrawn by direct order of Prime Minister Jean Chretien despite the wishes of Foreign Affairs Minister Lloyd Axworthy and other cabinet ministers. While the Canadian government had supported such a resolution for six years, it withdrew support at the crucial hour – after Chinese officials threatened Canadian business opportunities in China, the book alleges. “Lloyd Axworthy … […]
NEW YORK, Sept 25 (LSN) – The official site for UN news reported yesterday that the second batch of Ted Turner’s billion dollar donation was released Thursday with one of the three key target areas being the support of “adolescent reproductive health.” The official UN definition of “reproductive health” includes abortion. Another part of the current $32.8 million is to be spent on fostering the UN’s radical environmentalist Kyoto treaty.
AUCKLAND, Sept 25 (LSN) – After failing to receive family permission to remove the ventilator from a two- month old baby born suffering from Mobius Syndrome and Polands anomaly, doctors at the National Women’s Hospital have sought permission from the New Zealand High Court to override the will of the parents. The hospital is demanding that the baby be made a ward of the court so that the courts can allow the hospital’s clinical director Dr. David Knight to decide what is in the best interests of the child. Knight has advocated removing the child from treatment. In presentations to […]
LAWRENCE, Kansas, Sept 25 (LSN) – Pro-lifers demonstrating at the University of Kansas suffered life threatening attacks from pro-aborts this week. The Associated Press reported that on Sunday a pro-abort drove his car into the demonstration just missing one of the women holding the signs. Another violent attack occurred Tuesday when, claiming he was trying to knock down a sign, another pro-abort punched a pro- lifer. The attackers and their supporters objected to the pro-life protest which compared the plight of the preborn to the Jewish holocaust and to black slavery in America. The organizer of the demonstration, Gregg Cunningham […]
OTTAWA, Sept 25 (LSN) – Prime Minister Chretien announced Wednesday the appointment of MP Maria Minna to Chair the Social Policy Committee of the Liberal Caucus. Minna is a pro-abortion MP who was hand-selected by Chretien to run as the Liberal candidate in the Beaches-East York riding during the 1993 federal elections. Pacing a radical pro-abort as the head of the Social Policy Committee demonstrates Chretien’s unwavering commitment to the pro-abortion agenda.
EUGENE, Oregon, Sept 24 (LSN) – On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Michael Hogan rejected a challenge to an Oregon law permitting assisted suicide. The law’s opponents argued that the legislation placed a stigma on the disabled making them seem to be of less worth than others. Hogan, who brought a halt to the pro-assisted suicide law once before, denied the challenge saying that the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had decided that an injury had to occur before the law could be challenged.
