Study Claiming No Link between Abortion and Breast Cancer “Corrupt, Biased and Horrible”

Massachusetts Woman Saved by Court Decision from Starvation Death

BRIDGEWATER, March 26, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Another US hospital has fought, – and lost – a battle to kill a vulnerable patient.

VALENCIA, March 26, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Pro-life educators often make the argument that if individuals were fully aware of the dignity and value of human life in the womb, then even with legalized abortion, the demand for and availability of them would be reduced. This point seems to be proved by a Spanish pro-life organization that has found the great majority, 96%, of Spanish doctors, refuses to commit abortion. The International Planned Parenthood Website complains that “the Roman Catholic Church and `pro-life’ opposition in Spain is a constant factor in non-government organization advocacy for sexual and reproductive health” and that […]
