LIBERAL LAWS TO BLAME FOR 43% RISE IN IRISH ABORTIONS

DUBLIN, Ireland, Feb 28, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Abortion statistics reported in Ireland demonstrate the dismal failure of a 1995 abortion related law supposedly aimed at reducing abortions. The statistics showed that there were 4,921 Irish women reported traveling abroad to abort their babies in by September 2000, compared to 3,444 for the same period in 1999. The Pro-Life Campaign blamed the results on liberal legislation enacted in 1995 known as the Abortion Information Act. “The Act which made it legal to provide the names and addresses of abortion clinics and for clinics to advertise in Irish newspapers has singularly failed […]

COUPLE DENIED IN-VITRO FUNDING ACCUSE CATHOLIC JUSTICE OF BIAS

ST JOHN, NS, Feb 27, 2001 (LSN.ca) – A Halifax couple is seeking to overturn a Supreme Court decision that denied public funding of their in-vitro fertilization treatment.

U.S. SUPREME COURT REJECTS COMPLAINTS BY SOUTH CAROLINA ABORTIONISTS

WASHINGTON, Feb 27, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Abortion proponents in South Carolina were fuming Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the pleas of the four main abortionists in the state.

The abortionists will not be able to perform abortions until they meet the new licensing requirements. They have requested a delay in the implementation of the rules, allegedly to give them time to meet the requirements. The abortionists must now conform to a 27-page rule-book which was to […]
