Canada’s “Religious Right” Has to Wake up and Face Reality Says Columnist

TORONTO, Ontario, September 30, 2005, (LifeSite.net) – If religious people in Canada feel that they’ve been having a tough time lately, it’s probably not their imagination. So writes Lorne Gunter in a National Post column published Sept. 26, in which he makes it very clear that the “religious right” has to wake up and face reality. In his lengthy, hard-hitting article Gunter makes many sobering claims that most leaders of Canada’s life and family defending organizations would regrettably largely agree with. All of them, to varying degrees have suffered from the indifference, short term commitments, weak efforts or even betrayal […]

UN Leader’s Chief of Staff Testifies that “Reproductive Health” Does NOT Include Abortion

WASHINGTON, September 30, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) - On Wednesday, in an official briefing before the House International Relations Committee, United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan’s Chief of Staff Mark Malloch Brown clarified that the term “reproductive health” does not include abortion. “The UN refuted the idea that abortion is part of reproductive health. This is a clear rejection of the abortion lobby’s efforts to use this term to pressure pro-life countries to remove protections for unborn children,” said Congressman Chris Smith. During the on-the-record public briefing, Congressman Smith referenced a section of the 2005 UN General Assembly World Summit Outcome document […]

Netherlands Set to Give Go-Ahead to Child Euthanasia

AMSTERDAM, September 30, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Dutch officials are set to give child euthanasia the go-ahead. The practice is already widespread there with an estimated 15-20 cases per year despite it being illegal. No paediatricians have been prosecuted. The Netherlands was the first country in the world to legalize euthanasia in 2001. The governing Christian Democrats said they will approve the Groningen Protocol, the child euthanasia guidelines named after the euthanist doctors from Groningen University Medical Centre. The protocol suggests that euthanasia be permitted when a child is terminally ill with no hope of recovery and in pain, and that […]

Australian and Danish Governments Providing Prostitutes for the Disabled

HOBART, September 30, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – According to an apparently unembarrassed official of the Department of Health and Human Services in the Australian state of Tasmania, guidelines have been established that allow care givers to organise visits for disabled clients to Hobart’s local brothels. The terms “hooker or “street walker” have long been taboo as being insensitive. Now “prostitute,” is no longer acceptable either and the properly affirming phrase “sex trade worker,” is used to describe the world’s oldest profession. This new nomenclature is especially important now that publicly funded social workers can – and do – arrange for their […]

Dutch Couple Contracts with Second Woman in Netherlands’ First Legal Polygamy

ROOSENDAAL, September 30, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Many Canadian MP’s, journalists and marriage defenders warned that the degradation of marriage in law would lead from the legitimizing of homosexual relationships to polygamy. They have been roundly ridiculed for it by supporters of the same-sex “marriage” legislation. Now, with predictable promptness, the Dutch have proved that the warnings have been on the mark. A Dutch man and two women have been given a license for their three-way “marriage” by the government. Victor de Bruijn, 46, from Rosendaal, and his wife Bianca, 31, have signed a “co-habitation contract” with a woman, Mirjam Geven, […]
