Statistics Canada, the government statistical service, notes that the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes among common-law mothers are of great public health concern because of the high and increasing proportion of births to mothers in common-law unions.  In 1997, 44% of births in Quebec were to common-law […]

UK Abortionist Admits to Illegal Late-Term Abortions

LONDON, November 22, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A British doctor has admitted to referring women for illegal late-term abortions at a Spanish abortuary, as exposed by The Sunday Telegraph in early October. Dr Saroj Adlakha admitted she had taken an 18-year-old university student to the Ginemedex clinic in Spain for an abortion, based on a British Pregnancy Advisory Service (BPAS) recommendation. BPAS is the National Health Service’s biggest abortion provider, and a publicly-funded charity.  Last month, a 29-week pregnant Telegraph reporter told Adlakha she wanted an abortion; Adlakha referred her to the Ginemedex clinic in Barcelona, despite late-term abortions being illegal […]

Same-Sex Mothers both Legal Parents of Daughter, Activist Court Rules

RUTLAND, Vermont, November 22, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Two women who entered into a same-sex civil union in Vermont in 2000 have been awarded joint custody of a daughter born to one woman through artificial insemination. The court ruled both women were the legal parents of the two-year-old girl. A Virginia judge in August awarded Lisa Miller-Jenkins, the girl’s mother, sole custody, because the state does not recognize same-sex unions. Later, in September, a Vermont court disagreed, ruling Lisa Miller-Jenkins was in contempt of court, for denying her same-sex partner Janet Miller-Jenkins access to the two year-old toddler, Isabella.  On Wednesday, […]

Abortion Breast Cancer Warning Removed by Louisiana – Women’s Group Objects

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., November 22, 2004 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer has condemned a decision by Louisiana health officials to remove a warning from the department’s Web site informing women about the relationship between abortion and breast cancer.  Health department officials were intimidated by inquiries from an Associated Press (AP) reporter into the state’s “Woman’s Right to Know” booklet. A report from the AP inaccurately claimed women were being “wrongly warned” about an abortion-breast cancer link.  The AP story said the National Cancer Institute and a Lancet review found no link. However, the AP omitted important facts. Five […]
