LONDON, October 18, 2001 (LSN.ca) – A British judge has ruled that a 23+ week pregnant woman with schizophrenia is better off having a normal birth instead of a late-term abortion.

CONCERN THAT PROPOSED TERRORISM LAW COULD TARGET PRO-LIFERS

OTTAWA, October 17, 2001 (LSN.ca) – An anti-terrorism bill entailing broad powers of arrest and detention and a massive loss of rights of the accused has pro-lifers concerned since the legislation’s definition of terrorism could be interpreted to include pro-life groups.
