Canadian Cabinet Minister Kenney “Deeply Disturbed” that Abortion Doc Awarded Order of Canada

By John-Henry Westen OTTAWA, July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper briefly signaled his displeasure with the nomination of abortionist Henry Morgentaler to the Order of Canada yesterday.  “My preference, to be frank, would be to see the Order of Canada be something that really unifies, that brings Canadians together,” he said at a press conference.  That theme of divisiveness has been repeated by most Conservative MPs who have spoken on the matter since the announcement on Canada Day – July 1st. Today Conservative MP Jason Kenney, a Minister in the Department of Canadian Heritage, spoke with […]

Human/Pig Hybrid Clones Approved for UK

By Hilary White LONDON, July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Doubtless in anticipation of the apparently imminent passage of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill, the UK’s embryo research authority has granted a license to scientists to begin work to create human/pig cloned hybrid embryos. The Labour government’s proposed bill, however, would, if passed into law, do away with the necessity of researchers even asking for individual licenses. The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) granted the license to the Clinical Sciences Research Institute, University of Warwick, who want to make the embryos in order to produce embryonic stem cells. Professor Justin St. […]

By John Jalsevac July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Yesterday seven different news organizations conducted online polls seeking the opinions of Canadians on the question of whether or not arch-abortionist Henry Morgentaler should have been awarded the Order of Canada. The results of six of the seven polls showed a heavy majority being strongly against Morgentaler’s having been named to the Order. The seventh poll, which was the only one that did not offer a simple “yes” or “no” option, still showed a larger number of respondents being against Morgentaler’s receiving the award than were in favour. While such online polls […]

LOS ANGELES, July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A federal appellate panel ruled Wednesday that the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department violated the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s (CBR) free speech rights.

Order of Canada Members Return their Awards Over Morgentaler Decision

By Hilary White LONDON, Ontario, July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com ) – Father Lucien Larre, a Catholic priest in British Columbia, is returning his Order of Canada, saying that Morgentaler’s investiture into the highly prestigious Order was “a terrible mistake”.

Abortionist Tiller Likely to Escape Late Term Abortion Charges

By Tim Waggoner WICHITA, KS, July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The citizen-called grand jury that investigated late-term abortionist George R. Tiller was dismissed today without issuing an indictment.  Pro-life groups led a petition drive that resulted in the convening of the grand jury in January to investigate if Tiller’s late-term abortion business violated the Kansas ban on post-viability abortions at 22 weeks gestation or later. In the statement released by the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office, the jury found that, “After six months of conducting an investigation that included hearing extensive witness testimony, reviewing volumes of documents and medical records […]

Amnesty International Pushes Mexican High Court to Uphold Legal Abortion

 By Piero A. Tozzi and Juan Carlos Perez July 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com/C-Fam) – Global human rights group Amnesty International (AI), which officially abandoned its neutrality on abortion in 2007, has authored a pro-abortion legal memorandum addressed to the Supreme Court of Mexico asking the high court to uphold liberal abortion in Mexico City. The memorandum directly contradicts AI’s previous position that “there is no generally accepted right to abortion in international human rights law.” AI’s memo supports a liberalized first-trimester abortion law passed last year by Mexico City’s Legislative Assembly that has been challenged by Mexico’s Attorney General. AI cites […]
