WASHINGTON, Dec 3 (LSN) After praising “successes” in the Chinese “family planning” (one-child policy) programme, Undersecretary of State for Global Affairs Frank Loy promised to make restoration of support for the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) a top priority. In October, the population control arm of the UN lost all of its funding from the United States. The $20 million cut, implemented by Congress as part of the federal budget, represented seven per cent of the UNFPA funding. The final straw for Congress was the UNFPA’s support of Chinese population control programs. Last year UNFPA began a new $5-million program in […]
MAYWOOD, IL, Dec 3 (LSN) – Shel’be Pruitt, a child born a little over 20 weeks after her conception was released from hospital Saturday to go home with her overjoyed parents. In a story last Sunday covering the happy occasion, the Chicago Sun-Times noted that “A Canadian infant born 128 days early in 1987” is the world record holder for the most premature baby to survive. Ironically the Canadian Vancouver General Hospital admitted just yesterday to aborting babies older than this.
VANCOUVER, BC, Dec 2 (LSN) In a story in today’s Vancouver Sun regarding a nurses strike at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH), the paper said that the hospital, while having to turn away some patients has approved doing “several late-term therapeutic abortions.” Dr. Jeff Coleman, VGH’s vice-president of medical affairs, while complaining that VGH is the only facility in the province that does late-term abortions, revealed that abortions take place even beyond the 19th week of the preborn child’s development. “If they (abortions) extend beyond 19 weeks, they become major procedures,” he said.
OTTAWA, Dec 2 (LSN) – Tom Merrick, a senior advisor in the Human Resources Network of the World Bank, spoke at the Fifth Canadian Conference on International Health, Nov 15-18, revealing that the international financial institution funds “reproductive health.” Merrick noted that three billion dollars were shelled out last year by the Bank to support “Health, Nutrition and Population.” Jean Ferrari, who reported on the conference for The Ottawa Times, attempted unsuccessfully to have Merrick divulge what percentage of the three billion went into funding each of the three components. While Merrick denied that the World Bank supported population control […]
TOKYO, Japan, Dec 2 (LSN) – Richard Seed of Chicago, who gained notoriety in January by proposing to start cloning humans for profit, has found acceptance for his schemes in Japan. Japanese scientists and government officials in search of cloning technology for their cattle industry have agreed to allow Seed to set up an animal cloning clinic and an in vitro fertilization centre on the Japanese island of Hokkaido where Seed expects to set up shop in August.

UNITED NATIONS, Dec 2 (LSN) Exploiting the plight of those suffering from the dreaded HIV virus and AIDS, UN promoters of “reproductive health,” which, in UN-speak includes abortion, used World AIDS Day to promote their favourite causes. Giving a Keynote Speech at a UN forum marking World AIDS Day, Hollywood sex-star Sharon Stone said, “if you truly, truly love your children, you need to supply condoms in a place in your home, at a quantity that makes it a non-judgmental situation for them to have them.”“I mean, put 200 condoms in a box in some place in the house where […]

The president of the Pro-Life Committee told reporters “It is not possible to understand a government that talks about the common good when the laws do not […]
MOSCOW, Dec 1 (LSN) Citing Health Ministry figures, Interfax news agency reported Sunday that approximately 2.5 million abortions were committed in Russia in 1997. The figures also indicated that two out of every three women who have their children aborted suffer from health complications as a result. The situation is pathetic considering 70 per cent of babies conceived are killed by abortion and this in a country where the number of abortions is said to have fallen by 25 per cent in the past four years.
WASHINGTON, Dec 1 (LSN) Yesterday, the US Supreme Court rejected an appeal by a gay Boy Scout leader who charged the youth organization with discrimination after it discontinued his services because of his active homosexuality. Charles Merino became the second former Boy Scout leader to be denied access to the young boys by the Supreme Court. In 1984, former Eagle Scout Timothy Curran, a practicing homosexual, lost his Supreme Court battle to lead a troop of young boys. Homosexual activist lawyer Evan Wolfson of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund revealed that numerous other attempts to legally force admission […]
TWIN PEAKS, California, Dec 1 (LSN) – Jeff White, director of Operation Rescue California and father of nine children received a letter at his home Monday which claimed he had been exposed to the deadly anthrax bacteria used in biological warfare. The FBI was called in to investigate and has retained the letter for its investigation. Authorities suspected that the letter, forwarded to White’s home from his pro-life office, was a hoax and no evacuation of the neighbourhood was deemed necessary. “It comes with the territory,” White said. White suspects radical abortion advocates are behind the threat. Since 1988, when […]
