WASHINGTON, Sept 23 (LSN) – The mainstream media has hardly tried to hide its pro-abortion bias, nevertheless the National Broadcasting Corporation’s commemoration yesterday of the founding of the so- called “birth-control” pill still comes as a surprise and grave disappointment to pro-life forces. American Life League (ALL) president, Judie Brown, condemned the celebration, noting that “NBC has once again failed to provide full information to healthy women who may consider ingesting chemicals that have serious side effects for them and deadly consequences for the tiniest child in the womb.” Scientific evidence has shown the pill to be an abortifacient.
MADRID, Spain, Sept 23 (LSN) – The Spanish Parliament barely defeated a motion yesterday aimed at allowing abortion on demand through the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The measure lost by only one vote – 173 to 172. The country is thus left with the more restrictive, yet still pro-abortion, law introduced in 1985 by the country’s previous Socialist government. This law permits the killing of pre-born children in cases of the mother’s physical or mental health, rape, and a so-called deformed fetus.
WASHINGTON, Sept 22 (LSN) – In the city where only a few days ago the U.S. senate could not put a stop to the most most widely practiced form of legal infanticide, partial-birth abortion, government scientists announced Monday a breakthrough in scientific experimentation making for more “humane” treatment of test animals. Reuters reports that a committee of scientists headed up by William Stokes of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIESH), said the new skin test for irritating chemicals “typically use fewer animals, no animals or cause less pain and distress” to the laboratory animals. Kenneth Olden, director of […]
Woman Prepares To Starve Her Husband To Death MANASSAS, VA, Sept 22 (LSN) – American Life League President Judie Brown joined about 400 protesters outside a Manassas nursing home Sunday where Hugh Finn, a 1995 car crash victim is slated for death by starvation. Finn’s wife was granted permission by the courts to remove her husband’s feeding tubes on which he is dependent for his sustenance. Virginia legislator Robert Marshall has protested the decision noting that euthanasia is illegal in the State. Marshall called the scenario “as monstrous as the steps taken in pre-Nazi Germany to get rid of […]
Will Radical Anti-Family UN Policies Be Implemented? FREDERICTON, Sept 22 (LSN) – Yesterday, New Brunswick Health and Community Services Minister Ann Breault announced plans for a major overhaul of child welfare services in the province in response to a report on the death of a child due to wanton neglect by her parents. While the sentiment to improve child welfare is a noble one, the recommendations and direction of the government are of concern to pro-family advocates. The first of the 14 recommendations of the Child Death Review Committee’s report on the death of Jacqueline Brewer states that “The Family […]
TORONTO, Sept 22 (LSN) – Yesterday Ontario Finance Minister Ernie Eves announced that applications for a new “Ontario Child Care Supplement for Working Families” were sent across the province to families with young children. The program will for the first time afford child care payments to families with one stay- at-home parent. Geared to “low-to-middle-income families,” the supplement will provide up to $1,020 annually for child care costs for each child under age seven. The legislation for payment of the supplement is pending a vote in the Ontario Legislature. The first payments would be retroactive to July 1998 an given […]
MADRID, Spain, Sept 22 (LSN) – A debate in the Spanish Parliament began Monday on allowing abortion on demand in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. The move would further the pro-abortion law established by the previous Socialist government in the country in 1985 which permits the killing of children in the womb for reasons of the physical or mental health of the mother, rape, and deformation of the fetus. Reuters reported this morning that The Roman Catholic Church is being accused of “unfairly trying to pressure the vote.” The Catholic Church in Spain has condemned the proposed legislation as […]
BANGOR, Maine, Sept 21 (LSN) – The Bangor Daily News reported Friday that pro-life demonstrator Elizabeth Harden was harassed by a pro-abort while setting up pro-life signs outside the Mabel Wadsworth Women’s Health Center, an abortuary in Bangor, Maine. Mrs. Harden told the police that he used “terrible, obscene language,” and witnesses confirm that the pro- abort took one of the pro-life signs and flung it into the intersection before leaving the scene. The pro- lifers were thankful that the throwing of the sign did not result in a car accident. A Bangor police officer dispatched to the scene determined […]
KELWONA, BC, Sept 21 (LSN) – A report in the Kelwona Daily Courier last week indicated that the local health board is seeking $400,000 from the provincial government to set up an abortuary in the Kelwona General Hospital. This despite the deplorable conditions of general health care in the region, which, as the paper reports, “had about 300 fewer long-term beds than the provincial average for a district this size a few years ago.” An additional ten long-term beds could be set up in the community for the cost of the startup fees for the abortuary. The hospital abortuary is […]
WASHINGTON, Sept 21 (LSN) – On Friday, U.S. pro-life groups reacted to the unsuccessful U.S. Senate vote to override Clinton’s veto of a law banning partial-birth abortion with condemnation. Judie Brown, head of American Life League, the nation’s largest pro-life educational organization, used the occasion to call the U.S. pro-life movement to “turn its attention away from so-called ‘partial-birth’ abortion and refocus on the genuine pro-life goal a constitutional amendment that protects all human beings from fertilization on.” Joe Scheidler of the Pro-life Action League said in a press release that “It is disgusting and abhorrent that our two Illinois […]
