UN POPULATION CONTROL HURTS PAKISTAN

UNITED NATIONS, May 25 (Lifesitenews.com) – Reuters reported last week that “The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) urged Pakistan to prepare for a future with an aging population – a future with more older people needing care and fewer younger people contributing to economic growth.” American Life League president Judie Brown questioned: “Why would it be surprising that the very countries, like Pakistan, that have been the target of UNFPA’s consistent demand for fewer children now be the very ones facing projections of an aging population?” Brown called for a review of the philosophy of the population control groups and […]

DO-NOT-RESUSCITATE VICTIM IS NOW HEALTHY

WINNIPEG, May 25 (Lifesitenews.com) – Less than a year after having to fight in court to remove a do-not resuscitate (DNR) order from her husband’s hospital chart, Helene Sawatzky was informed that her husband Andrew is healthy enough to return home.

PRIME MINISTER: COURT RULING DOES NOT AFFECT MARRIAGE

OTTAWA, May 25 (Lifesitenews.com) – A press release from the Prime Minister’s Office Friday stated that the Supreme Court of Canada ruling regarding same-sex benefits in Ontario “does not mean that same sex couples are legally recognized as ‘married.’” The release states further that:  “No jurisdiction in the world recognizes same-sex ‘marriages.’” Picking up on the public shock at the undemocratic fashion in which the courts have dictated Canadian law, Chretien said, “we do not believe that the recognition of same sex couples should be left to the courts. It should be left to Parliament to debate and determine when […]

FERTILITY CLINICS TO BE REGULATED

OTTAWA, May 25 (Lifesitenews.com) – In vitro fertilization (IVF) businesses in other countries have had to make public their success (or failure) rates with the process, but Canada has so far kept the IVF industry unregulated, allowing the fertility business to boom with no accountability.  The Globe and Mail reported today that new legislation would change that situation, requiring fertility clinics to provide the information. With statistics on the success rate of IVF per cycle such as the 22.6% figure from the US,  one can accurately estimate the number of embryos sacrificed to the IVF procedure. Supposing a similar rate […]

DROP IN SPINA BIFIDA LINKED TO ABORTION

SYDNEY, May 21, 1999 (Lifesitenews.com) – The number of Australian babies born with spina bifida has dropped significantly over the past decade according to figures released this week by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. By 1996, the number had dropped to about three for every 10,000 live births from seven in 1987. Tragically, however, behind this apparent good news is evidence that the drop is due to a sharp increase in the numbers of babies aborted due to the detection of spina bifida in preborn children. Over the same period of time, reported Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald on […]
