Editorial – Of Course Vatican Would Back Excommunication For Abortion of Twins of Nine-Year-Old Rape

By John-Henry Westen March 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Of course the Vatican would back an excommunication for those involved in the abortion of the twins of the nine-year-old rape victim. For the Church life is sacred. In addition to killing the unborn children, abortion hurts the women, and in this case, for the girl who undergoes the procedure, it has physical, psychological and spiritual consequences. The poor girl already went through the trauma of rape, now they put her through the trauma of abortion.  Abortion was much more dangerous to her health than birth. If a pregnant woman’s life is in […]

Fewer Planned Parenthood Facilities in 2008, but More Focus on Abortion: Report

WASHINGTON, DC (06 March 2009) – A new report from American Life League shows that in the last two years 61 additional Planned Parenthood facilities began offering medical abortions. While Planned Parenthood closed clinics across the United States in 2008, more of the remaining Planned Parenthood facilities are offering medical abortions – abortions involving the administration of drugs specifically intended to kill the preborn child. Some common drugs used for medical abortions are Mifepristone (RU-486) and Methotrexate. “We’re encouraged to see an overall decline in the number of facilities and its affiliates,” said Marie Hahnenberg, a researcher for American Life […]

Obama Unleashes Taxpayer Funds for Embryo-Destructive Research

By Kathleen Gilbert WASHINGTON, D.C., March 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – As promised, President Barack Obama today signed an executive order opening up the restrictions on taxpayer funding for embryo-destroying stem cell research (ESCr). Obama had toyed with the idea of opening ESCr funding though the legislative process before settling on the use of executive order. “In recent years, when it comes to stem cell research, rather than furthering discovery, our government has forced what I believe is a false choice between sound science and moral values,” said Obama.  “In this case, I believe the two are not inconsistent. As a […]

Letters to the Editor for March 9, 2009

Re: Ontario Bishop Says ‘Early Induction’ Policy at Catholic Hospital Under Vatican Reviewhttps://www.lifesitenews.com/ldn/2009/mar/09030511.html I would like to make two comments regarding this LSN article. Firstly, I would like to clarify a statement made by LSN. LSN has stated “Children with ‘lethal fetal anomalies’ are severely disabled, so severely that they will likely die within a few months, days or even hours of being born.” Children do not die because they are severely disabled. However, they can die because treatment and surgery that is provided to other children without disabilities is purposely withheld. It may be that some of these precious […]

Planned Parenthood Targets Poland for Abortion with US Funds, Courtesy of Obama

By Tim Waggoner WARSAW, March 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) has wasted little time in putting to use the millions of taxpayer dollars that have been made available to it by President Obama’s decision to rescind the Mexico City Policy, which forbade U.S. funds from going to organizations that promote or perform abortions overseas. In a letter advocating a series of Women’s Day marches in Poland which took place yesterday and which were advertised with the words “Come and Join Us Because … Poland is Ill,” the IPPF urged support for the pro-contraception, pro-abortion and […]

By Thaddeus M. Baklinski OTTAWA, March 9, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) – University of Ottawa researchers have found that women who conceive within a month of taking birth-control pills tend to have premature babies or babies with a low birth weight.

Xi-Kuan Chen, an epidemiologist and senior analyst with the Canadian Institute for Health Information at the University of Ottawa said doctors should inform patients of the link between chemical contraceptives and low birth […]
