    A man sets himself on fire Wednesday on the Ellipse in downtown Washington, across from the White House, the Secret Service said. A spokesman for the Washington Fire Department tells CNBC, “I can confirm that we’ve transported one patient with burns from the Ellipse and we’re now on the scene assisting law enforcement,” referring to Park Police and U.S. Secret Service officers. Alina Berzins says she was visiting the National Mall with two of her cousins from Bolivia when “we saw this man” on the Ellipse and “he starts running, and then we saw him covered in flames.”

    Our Dark AgesPro-Life Conferees Say Research on Abortion Risk IgnoredBy Fred Martinez The Global Family Life conference at the Santa Clara Marriott was not well received by Bay Area media who either ignored it, or responded with skepticism at the claims of the pro-life conferees. The speakers responded by blasting the media both for its ignorance of medical research and for misrepresenting the scandals in the Church. The conference ran from April 3 through April 7 across the street from Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara and featured 26 pro-life leaders from around the world. Steve Mosher, head of...

    The news that breast cancer has now overtaken lung cancer as the most common British cancer came as a surprise to many. Not to Patrick Carroll, however, the author of a new study from Great Britain that links the huge increase in breast cancer to the widespread practice of abortion. Dr. Carroll's study demonstrates that abortion actually doubles the risk of cancer in women.(1)And the worst is yet to come. In England and Wales the breast cancer rate is expected to rise by over 2 per cent per annum between now and 2023-some 60 percent-among women aged 45 to ...

    And the journalists who cite him. THE TALIBAN MAY BE DEAD, but its propaganda lives on in the European and Middle Eastern press--thanks in part to the tireless machinations of one hard-left professor at the University of New Hampshire and to the willingness, nay, eagerness, of some of our foreign "friends" to believe the worst about America. On December 10, Marc Herold, an associate professor of economics and women's studies, released a "dossier," claiming to have "documented" 3,767 civilian deaths in the American air campaign in Afghanistan. The count is updated daily in a database on the web ( Herold's...

    By Karl Maurer, Vice President and Treasurer Chicago Catholics are reacting with anger and shock over a press release by Cardinal George late Friday afternoon. The release reads as follows: "Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., learned from the news media that the Rev. Al Sharpton has been invited to speak at St. Sabina's on February 9 in the course of celebrating Black History Month. The Cardinal supports the celebration but does not approve of the invitation because of the Rev. Sharpton's present political candidacy and his pro-abortion stance." "Since the homily at Mass is a liturgical action, the homilist is to...

    Chinese women married to Taiwanese men are being ordered to have abortions or sterilization surgery during visits to the mainland to comply with China's controversial "one-child policy." At least six of those women report that family planning officials forced them to undergo pregnancy tests in recent months, according to the Taiwanese body that deals with mainland relations, the Straits Exchange Foundation (SEF). SEF legal services director Patricia Lin said by phone from Taipei Friday that those who were deemed to have violated the "one-child" rule - by getting pregnant after already having a child - were also fined and threatened...
  • Pro-Abortion Lawmakers Blash Bush on UNFPA Decision

    Accusing the White House of playing political games with the lives of poor women overseas, pro-abortion members of Congress pressed President Bush Tuesday to explain why he has held up $34 million for U.N. family planning programs that have looked the other way as China has implemented a policy of coercive abortions and sterilizations. A group of 48 pro-abortion members of Congress sent a letter to Bush asking that he release the findings of a U.S. delegation that traveled to China in early May to see how the funds are used. The group asked Bush to meet with them so...

    Completely contradicts past UNFPA claimsWASHINGTON, September 24, 2002 ( - The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) has admitted that it does not monitor the 32 counties in China where it operates, and therefore has no way of knowing if coercive abortion is as rampant in its 32 county programs as victims and human rights groups claim. The admission comes after UNFPA told U.S. authorities that no coercive abortion was taking place in a bid to ensure U.S. financial support for UNFPA's activities in China. UNFPA is desperate to reinstate US funding for its programs after a Population Research Institute (PRI)...

Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) who has led the way in trying to protect American taxpayers from involvement with China's coercive "one-child" abortion policy, and who supported George W. Bush's campaign for president, has said, according to Ken Connor's December 20, 2001 Washington Update, "I have no doubt in my mind they (the Bush administration) will do the right thing."

    ( - A Virginia-based population research organization claims that Americans are funding coerced abortions and sterilizations over seas, without even knowing it. At a hearing before the House International Relations Committee Wednesday, witnesses to China's harsh population control laws testified about the effects of the laws on women and their families. Currently in China, families are allowed to have only one child. In keeping with the country's one-child policy, pregnant mothers in the People's Republic of China are required to have an explicit "birth authorization" to have their child. Violators of the law face forced abortions and sterilization. According to ...

    Dear Colleague: The battle raging over the President's AIDS bill comes down to Condoms vs. Abstinence. The "have sex, just use a condom" approach has been tried for twenty years and has failed-spectacularly-to halt the epidemic. The only failsafe method of preventing the sexual spread of HIV is to encourage abstinence before marriage and faithfulness after marriage. This is what abstinence-and abstinence alone-does.

    ( - The Tanzanian government has seized a shipment of ten million condoms worth nearly $1 million, alleging that the condoms leak. The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) was responsible for the shipment and intended for the condoms to be distributed to the people of Tanzania free of charge. Steve Mosher, spokesman with the Virginia-based Population Research Institute, says the Tanzanian government wants to destroy the condoms seized last week because they have failed two permeability tests. However, Sarah Craven, chief of the UNFPA's Washington office, says the Tanzanian government has agreed to have a third sample of the condoms...

Because, say the gender feminists at the United Nations, they are powerless to refuse sex with HIV-positive men. We disagree with this ideologically-motivated assessment. We believe that the targeting of women and girls for invasive contraceptive, sterilization and abortion procedures by so-called Sexual and Reproductive Health programs is largely responsible. Steven W.

    WASHINGTON - As attention in Iraq begins to shift from war to rebuilding, some Catholic leaders wonder what kind of society the United States and United Nations want to create there. In the past, institutions such as the U.S. Agency for International Development and the U.N. Population Fund have promoted family planning, including abortion. Such promotion could result in a backlash among the traditional Christians and Muslims of Iraq, some observers say. "I know that wherever [the U.N. Population Fund] goes, contraception and abortion follow," said Austin Ruse, president of the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute, an organization that...

    Dr. Theresa Burke's latest book on post-abortion therapy, "Forbidden Grief: The Unspoken Pain of Abortion," is endorsed by the great enemy of the feminist agenda, Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Burke concurs with Dr, Laura that the feminist movement has brought us deep psychological problems, especially the abortion culture, because "if you examine the women's movement you can see that many of the women who laid the groundwork were women traumatized by their own abortions. They believed that legalizing abortion would take away the trauma." Instead, as Dr. Burke shows, they created trauma, which brought us the nightmare culture. She applies psychology...
