HOMOSEXUAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSIONER SUPPORTS PROVINCIAL LIBERAL AGENDA ON “GAY” RIGHTS

TORONTO, Oct 20 (LSN) – The Ontario Human Rights Commissioner appointed by the Conservative government has sided with the opposition Liberals in their radical bid to bring “in full legislation that will afford all rights (including adoption), benefits and protections under the law to gay and lesbian couples.” Commissioner Keith Norton spoke favorably about the Liberal plan in the Toronto Sun today saying, “It would make our job at the commission easier. There would not be as many complaints …”  Norton, himself a homosexual, was appointed by the Ontario Tories on June 26, 1996 to head up the province’s Human […]

BRITISH DOCTORS FIGHT EUTHANASIA

LONDON, Oct 19 (LSN) – Last Wednesday a coalition of British doctors launched a campaign against changing the laws governing euthanasia and assisted suicide. Dr. Denis Daley, a spokesman for “First Do No Harm”  (a reference to the Hippocratic Oath) said the media and other sources were pushing “pro-euthanasia propaganda” seeking first the cruel measure of permitting the withdrawal of food and drink from comatose patients.  Dr Daley described these measures as the beginning of the “slippery slope” which would lead to Nazi-style involuntary euthanasia. The potential for this digression, said Daley, is evident in the way abortion policy developed […]

Assisted suicide crusader urges opposition to November Ballot Initiative   DETROIT, Oct 19 (LSN) – A Michigan plan to legalize assisted suicide will be on the November 3rd ballot seeking public approval, despite a vigorous fight against it by pro-lifers. Ned McGrath, a spokesman for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Detroit, said that the proposal was “a bad piece of legislation, for a lot of reasons.” Incredibly, the proposed legislation for assisted suicide does not require notification of loved ones, would exempt an oversight committee from outside scrutiny, and would permit medical examiners to falsify death certificates for insurance reasons.  […]

GAY ACTIVISTS USING BOY’S MURDER TO FURTHER AGENDA

WASHINGTON, Oct 19 (LSN) – US Attorney General Janet Reno jumped on the gay activist bandwagon again yesterday using the murder of homosexual Wyoming student Matthew Shepard as an impetus to for federal hate crimes legislation, as well as to include “sexual orientation” in such legislation.  The proposal has little to do with physical violence which is already addressed in the law, having more significance as a tool of intimidation against the freedom to express opinions contrary to the acceptance of homosexual sexual activity. The agenda of the gay activist movement in this regard was clearly demonstrated in comments by […]
