U.S. Black Leaders Repudiate Same-Sex Marriage as the New “Civil Rights Movement”

NEW YORK, November 28, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Rev. William Sinkford, a black man who is president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, said “the struggle for gay civil rights is this generation’s great challenge, just as equality for blacks was the last generation’s”. This statement followed on the heels of the November 18 Massachusetts Supreme Court order to legalize same-sex marriage in that state. The Massachusetts court cited landmark laws that struck down bans on interracial marriage as a comparison for the same-sex marriage issue.  Conservative black leaders are incensed by the comparisons, stating that homosexual behaviour is a choice.

Unborn Child No Longer Defenceless in France

PARIS, November 28, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – French law was amended today to introduce penalties for crimes perpetrated against the unborn. The amendment creates a new offence – involuntary termination of a pregnancy, and includes penalties and prison time for acts that, through negligence or recklessness, kill an unborn child. Legislators say the amendment would have no consequence upon a woman’s access to abortion. France legalized abortion in 1975.  Current law has no provision for the unborn, as the fetus is not considered a person. Those who through medical error or by accident kill an unborn child are thus not currently […]

Nova Scotia Morgentaler Abortuary Closes Due to Lack of Business

HALIFAX, November 28, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Abortionist Henry Morgentaler’s abortuary in Halifax closed yesterday to the joy of the pro-life group Campaign Life Coalition Nova Scotia whose members have faithfully picketed in front of the clinic every day it was open for the last fourteen years.  While Morgentaler’s staff now claim the closing is due to abortion being available at the local Victoria General hospital, the hospital was already doing abortions in 1999 when Morgentaler admitted that his Nova Scotia operations were not turning a profit.  In a press release, Campaign Life Nova Scotia welcomed the news that Morgentaler decided […]

OTTAWA, November 27, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The news day began with a bang Thursday as Canadian media were filled with stories about Canadian Alliance Family Critic Larry Spencer’s fall into a political minefield on the homosexuality issue.

Poignantly, the letter argued, “When it comes to killing innocent human beings for the sake of […]
