TORONTO, July 30, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Canadian abortionist, Henry Morgentaler, responding to a recent Statistics Canada report, is claiming that access to abortion on demand is the reason for the country’s lowest violent crime rate since 1967.

APA Endorses Homosexual “Marriage”

HONOLULU, July 29, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The American Psychological Association, at their annual convention Wednesday, made a decision to endorse homosexual “marriage.” The APA also recommended that same-sex parents be granted all the legal rights of normal married parents.

APA president Diane Halpern made the claim that children raised by same-sex parents suffer no more […]
