Socialist government pushing abortion, divorce and sex-ed SANTIAGO, Chile, September 4, 2001 (LSN.ca) – The Chilean Supreme Court has recognized the abortifacient component of the “morning-after” birth-control pill and banned its use in Chile, where abortion is illegal.

The morning-after pill stops […]

Endorses far more liberal position than that of U.S. President Bush OTTAWA, September 4, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Canadian Alliance MP Preston Manning, founder of the Reform Party, has sorely disappointed social conservatives with his explicit endorsement of destructive experimentation on human embryos. The former Reform Party leader did not indicate that his endorsement had any conditions such as U.S. President Bush's emphatic limit on experimentation to cell lines derived from previously killed embryos only. In an interview with the Canadian Press released Friday, Manning said he supported embryonic stem cell research, falsely calling it the “lesser of two evils.” In […]
