PRO-ABORTION HYSTERIA OVER STABBING OF B.C. ABORTIONIST

VANCOUVER, July 12 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pro-abortion activists and sympathetic media are responding with near hysteria to the stabbing attack on abortionist Garson Romalis yesterday. Blame for the wounding incident is being assigned to pro-life organizations, churches, Joan Andrews Bell and even newly elected Canadian Alliance leader Stockwell Day. Media coverage of this relatively minor, but convenient incident has quickly transformed into an intense national abortion propaganda campaign. The main target appears to be Canada’s shift towards social conservatism and acceptance of more open, public dialogue on the abortion issue. The U.S. Abortion Federation has issued an alert to clinics and […]

VATICAN UN STATUS OVERWHELMINGLY SUPPORTED BY US CONGRESS

July 12 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Observers were stunned yesterday as The United States House of Representatives voted almost unanimously to denounce the campaign of the pro-abortion lobby to oust the Catholic Church from the United Nations. At the same time, the House endorsed the status of the Vatican at the UN. The deceptively named UN NGO (non-governmental organization), Catholics For a Free Choice, spear-headed a campaign to have the Vatican’s Permanent Observer status at the UN downgraded in order to weaken its influence in international treaty negotiations. Despite the abortion-related basis for the protest and the large number of abortion advocates […]
