Study Links Child Aggression to Time in Day Care

SALT LAKE CITY, August 21, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two new studies link aggressive, disobedient behaviour and increased anxiety and stress—in a minority of children—to extended time spent in daycare.

United Auto Workers Want Abortion, Contraception Insured

DETROIT, August 21, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The United Auto Workers union is demanding that car manufacturers insure their employees’ abortions and contraceptives—even if that means cutting down on bona fide health services.  During contract negotiations this past month, the union boldly asked General Motors Corp., Chrysler Group, and possibly Ford Motor Co., to “expand benefits related to reproductive services,” and to cover “professional fees for elective pregnancy termination.” Later, the union said more openly that it wants companies to pay for “elective [sic] or voluntary [sic] abortions.”  To date, 20 states have compelled insurers to pay for contraception.

National Pro-Life Organization Warns Homosexual ‘Civil Unions’ Little Different than Granting ‘Marriage’ to Same-Sex Couples

TORONTO, August 21, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Campaign Life Coalition Canada (CLC), the political arm of the pro-life movement in Canada, has warned politicians that there are “serious problems” with the line of thinking which “would support the idea of recognizing same-sex civil unions as an acceptable alternative to legalizing same-sex ‘marriage.’”  Although there are many reasons to oppose homosexual ‘unions’, in its September newsletter, CLC presents one moral and one practical reason:  “First, the debate about legal recognition of same-sex relationships is about more than the word “marriage”; there can be no legal recognition of a relationship based on immoral […]
