CAMPAIGN LIFE CONDEMNS DUTCH DECISION TO LEGALIZE EUTHANASIA

November 29, 2000 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The Netherlands has escalated its headlong plunge down the slippery slope towards total disrespect for all human life. It has become the only nation in the world to legalize euthanasia. “Will this tiny country, which was so tenacious in protecting the potential victims of the holocaust, lead other nations to destroy human life?” asked Jim Hughes, National President of Campaign Life Coalition on hearing the news. “Human beings who are suffering will not be given compassionate pain relief nor palliative care but will be put out of their misery like wounded animals”, he […]

AFRICAN AIDS PROJECT TO BE CONTROLLED BY PLANNED PARENTHOOD HEAD

NEW YORK, Nov 29 (LSN.ca) – The agenda behind a Bill Gates funded AIDS awareness programme in Africa was revealed. The United Nations Population Fund, which is implementing the project, appointed Audrey Elster, former head of South Africa’s Planned Parenthood Association to manage the largest-ever privately funded HIV/AIDS programme targeting youth. The programme, deceptively called the African Youth Alliance is expected to follow other AIDS awareness programmes which have been used as an excuse to bring graphic sex education and contraceptive pushing into unreceptive, family-oriented African cultures. Last April, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced that it would fund […]

LONDON, Ontario, Nov 28 (LSN.ca) – Edward Gratton, 67, received a mere conditional sentence for his involvement in the murder of a 16 year old girl in 1967.

NETHERLANDS PASSES WORLD’S FIRST LAW ALLOWING EUTHANASIA

AMSTERDAM, Nov 28 (LSN.ca) – The Dutch Parliament passed, 104-40, a law today formally legalizing euthanasia. Although the practice was already common in the country for some 20 years, experts fear that formal legalization will lead to an increase in the already out-of-control situation where the elderly fear entering hospitals in case they are euthanized without their consent. The new law says that the patient must be suffering unbearable and unremitting pain, must have repeatedly asked to be killed and a second medical opinion must be sought. A controversial clause which would have allowed children as young as 12 to […]

VATICAN CITY, Nov 28 (LSN.ca) – In a meeting with Catholic legislators and judges Monday, Pope John Paul II stressed: “Law that is separated from the anthropological and moral foundations carries numerous dangers within it, as it subjects decisions to the pure arbitration of the persons who write it, without keeping in mind the incomparable dignity of one’s neighbor.” Zenit News reported that the pope met with the International Union of Catholic Jurists who are in Rome attending their plenary assembly. The pope explained that law without moral foundations is why, “for many of our contemporaries, the right to life […]

CLC Press Release – November 28, 2000 With the federal election results finally tallied, the representation of pro-life MPs remains largely the same as before the election, according to Campaign Life Coalition President Jim Hughes. “While the distribution of seats for the parties and for pro-lifers within each party is roughly the same as last time,” said Hughes, “the lessons of the campaign should send a clear message to the party leaders from the millions of pro-life voters who cast ballots yesterday.”“Pro-lifers want Stockwell Day and Prime Minister Chretien to debate the abortion issue,” said Hughes, “and have the debate […]
