  • Iceland Is Not Alone in “Freezing Out” the Disabled

    Iceland Is Not Alone in “Freezing Out” the Disabled Msgr. Charles Pope • August 20, 2017 • Most of you have probably heard or read the reports trumpeting the “eradication” of Down syndrome in Iceland). The problem is that what is being termed “eradicating” the “problem” actually means that those with Down syndrome are being put to death. The celebratory language is all too similar to the way we once spoke of wiping out malaria by killing infected mosquitoes. But of course children in the womb are not mosquitoes; they are human beings, love and willed by God. Imagine...

    A story almost beyond belief whose conclusion came about last May, four years after “Lil” aborted her child in the 35th week. In 2013, Lil was 18, the Daily Mail’s Sophie Williams tells us, when the young woman from inner Mongolia found out she was pregnant. She did not tell anyone until the 35th week when evidently she told her brother who then accompanied her to an unnamed abortion clinic where she “successfully” aborted. Or, so she thought. Incredibly three days later police told Lil that her baby had been saved by the maternity nurse! According to Williams Liang Xiaohua...

    Parents and pro-life advocates urged a Pennsylvania school board Wednesday to reject a proposal to put a Planned Parenthood-run facility inside Reading High School. The Reading Eagle reports the facility would not do abortions at the high school, but Planned Parenthood staffers would offer students sex education, counseling about reproductive health and referrals to their abortion facility in Reading. Pro-lifers with Students for Life, the Pennsylvania Family Institute and others have been joining local parents to protest the proposal in the past few months. On June 21, about 80 pro-life advocates stood outside the Reading School District to urge the...

    The Chinese news outlet Global Times is reporting that a monk who saves babies from abortion and then brings them up has come into conflict with authorities. Master Daolu, a former businessman turned monk, believes, like many Buddhists, that the baby has a soul fm conception, and that abortion is murder. However, he doesn’t just persuade women not to have abortions – he provides shelter and care for them and their babies. Lifelong care According to an earlier Global Times article, when he began his ministry, Master Daolu converted his own villa in Nantong, in East China’s Jiangsu Province into...
  • Texas Governor Signs Bill Banning Insurance Coverage For Abortion

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law on Tuesday a bill that bans most standard insurance plans ― including those purchased through the Obamacare exchanges, as well as many employer-provided plans ― from covering abortions unless a woman’s life in danger. Under House Bill 214, Texas women will have to pay an additional insurance premium to buy coverage for non-emergency abortions. The law, which will go into effect in December, does not provide exceptions for rape, incest or fetal abnormalities. That means, for example, that a woman who is raped and becomes pregnant and who did not predict she might...

    Video game reviewers at Touch Arcade stumbled upon a sick new game app that will allow players to kill unborn babies in abortions. The “Abortion Simulator” is being developed by Kierun Studios, a company based in India that has a reputation for reprehensible games, according to the review. The game “will put you right in the middle of the surgery room and let you perform various abortions,” from early-term to “24+ week complex cases,” the developer describes. It appears that players actually will use surgical tools to reach into the womb and tear the unborn baby out in pieces. Screen...

    A group of artists in Colorado are working on special “reproductive health”-themed art – including a tampon chandelier – to raise money for the abortion chain Planned Parenthood. Women’s Caucus for Art Colorado member Linda Gleitz told the Daily Camera that she is passionate about supporting Planned Parenthood. She is helping to organize the art fundraiser for the abortion business. Gleitz said artists from her group are making a variety of pieces to sell, many of them donating 100 percent of their profits to the abortion chain. The fundraiser also will include a poetry reading and music. “We do have...

    NARAL Pro-Choice America launched a Twitter thread Wednesday equating white supremacy with the GOP and pro-life movement. NARAL’s thread initially criticized two attendees of the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., Saturday, James Allsup and Matthew Heimbach, but then depicted Heimbach as an organizer for the pro-life movement. NARAL claimed that Heimbach’s support of the pro-life movement was enough to prove that all members of the alt-right are anti-choice, and that pro-life supporters naturally support white supremacists.

    The removal of Confederate statues around the United States has prompted a fiery debate. On one side, many argue that the statues represent history and should be left where they are, lest we forget the significance of the era in which they were erected. On the flip side, some argue that the statues are racist and have no place in modern society. But why are proponents of the latter viewpoint only upset about certain statues and not others? Why, for example, is the bust of racist Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger in the Smithsonian Museum not one of the statues...

    You want to denounce Nazis? Here you go, America. Don't tell me again about the moral imperative to denounce Nazis if you're going to let this slide. As Rob mentioned to me when we were discussing who would write this up, the essence of Hitler's eugenics program was to filter out children who didn't have the traits deemed optimal for the Aryan race. Horrifying? Obviously. You'd have a fit if they started aborting babies for having brown skin, or - if there was some way you could tell - for being gay. And you should have that fit. But you...

    CBS reported Sunday that the majority of expecting mothers in the country or “close to 100 percent” who received a positive test for Down syndrome “terminated their pregnancy.” The network tweeted on Sunday, "Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion. #CBSNOA learns more, tonight at 10pm ET/PT." The 59-year-old actress took to Twitter with a heated reply, taking aim at the wording of the CBS tweet and Iceland in the process. "Iceland isn't actually eliminating Down Syndrome. They're just killing everybody that has it. Big difference," she wrote.

    With the rise of prenatal screening tests across Europe and the United States, the number of babies born with Down syndrome has significantly decreased, but few countries have come as close to eradicating Down syndrome births as Iceland. Since prenatal screening tests were introduced in Iceland in the early 2000s, the vast majority of women -- close to 100 percent -- who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy. While the tests are optional, the government states that all expectant mothers must be informed about availability of screening tests, which reveal the likelihood of a child being...

    The British National Health Service will pay to have a seriously ill baby flown to the United States for medical treatment, not long after it denied the same service to Charlie Gard. The Telegraph reports 7-month-old infant Oliver Cameron suffers from a rare heart tumor called a cardiac fibroma. Medical experts in the U.S. have successfully performed surgeries on babies with the same condition, and the NHS says Oliver can be flown to the U.S. for the surgery. Initially, Oliver’s parents Tim and Lydia Cameron were raising money for his treatment themselves, but the NHS said this week that it...

The girls, whose names were not released because they’re juveniles, were babysitting the infant in Danvers on Monday when the shocking video was posted to Snapchat, according to published reports. The video, which was picked up by news outlets around the country, appeared to show the girls putting the crying infant sideways into a shelf inside the refrigerator, closing the door and...

    Vatican City, Aug 1, 2017 CNA/EWTN News.- As its 50th anniversary approaches, the story of how Blessed Pope Paul VI arrived at the final text of “Humanae Vitae” will be a main focus of discussion. Paul VI issued his encyclical in 1968, after a commission of theologians and experts spent four years meeting to study in-depth whether the Church could be open to the contraceptive pill or other artificial forms of birth control. In his encyclical, Pope Paul VI reaffirmed that sexual relations cannot be detached from fecundity. The event was a watershed moment in the Church. A study group...
