Preemie of the Week: Doctors left Benson to die at birth, but his parents fought for him

Preemie of the Week: Doctors left Benson to die at birth, but his parents fought for him

by Administrator

In November 2017, Megan Artman went into premature labor at just 22 weeks and five days. She and her husband Tim were told their tiny son Benson would only live a few hours, but Benson had other plans. Today, he is a thriving three-year-old.

Benson was born weighing just one pound, two ounces. Believing he would not survive, doctors left him to die on his mother’s chest. At first, doctors wouldn’t even help Benson warm up because he wasn’t considered to be viable. But his parents fought for him, acknowledging that God was in charge of Benson’s life, not the doctors.

TRAGIC: Canadian woman euthanized because of her loneliness

by Administrator

A woman in Canada has been legally euthanized, not because she was dying, but because she was depressed over her loneliness. Ninety-year-old Nancy Russell had been living in a nursing home, and had few visitors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Seemingly with the blessing of her family, Russell chose to be euthanized.

Russell’s daughter, Tory, spoke to CTV News about her mother’s decision to kill herself. “Being mobile was everything to my mom,” she said. “My mother was extremely curious, and she was very interested in every person she met and every idea that she came across so she was constantly reading, going to different shows and talks.

Nursing Student Wins Victory Against University That Discriminated Against Her Because She’s Pro-Life

A British midwife student won a legal victory against the University of Nottingham after it threatened to expel her because of her pro-life beliefs.

The Samford Crimson reports Julia Rynkiewicz, 25, received an apology and won a settlement from the university this fall.

Rynkiewicz is just one of many pro-life medical workers who are facing discrimination simply for believing that unborn babies are patients who deserve care, too.

Earlier this year, Rynkiewicz said she was banned temporarily from finishing her hospital training after her instructors questioned her “fitness to practice,” according to The Telegraph. Their reason was her pro-life Catholic beliefs and her leadership as president of the Nottingham Students for Life.

Woman shares story of ‘soul-crushing’ coerced abortion at Planned Parenthood

by Administrator

In the book, “Shout Your Abortion Too,” a woman named Katie shared her story of coerced abortion and abortion trauma at the hands of her boyfriend and Planned Parenthood workers.

She and her boyfriend went to Planned Parenthood for a pregnancy test, which was positive. While there, the Planned Parenthood worker asked them what they wanted to do about the baby. “My boyfriend spoke up, quickly and firmly, with one word, ‘ABORTION.’ It was the first time that word had been spoken between us,” said Katie.

According to Katie, “The counselor did not ask me if I agreed, or if we wanted any other information regarding what kind of support would be available to us if we decided to move forward with the pregnancy, nor did she mention the option of adoption.”

New CDC report shows 57% drop in abortions from record high in 1990

by Administrator

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just released its latest reported abortion data, which shows a continuing trend of decreasing abortion numbers as well as abortion rates.

In the most recently reported year of 2018, the CDC reported 619,591 abortions, up slightly from 2017’s total of 612,719, but a drop of nearly 57% from its highest peak of 1,429,247 abortions in 1990. The year prior, in 2016, the CDC reported 623,471 abortions.

Comparing 2018 abortion numbers to those that took place in 1973 when Roe v. Wade legalized abortion throughout the U.S., the numbers are shockingly similar, with 2018’s numbers surpassing 1973’s (615,831) by about 4,000 abortions.

Planned Parenthood Endorses Raphael Warnock, Who Says the Bible OKs Killing Babies in Abortions

by Administrator

Senate candidate Raphael Warnock has the backing of the nation’s largest abortion group, Planned Parenthood.

A pastor and a pro-abortion Democrat, Warnock is challenging Sen. Kelly Loeffler, a pro-life Republican, in a high-stakes runoff race in Georgia. Neither Loeffler nor Warnock received more than 50 percent of votes Nov. 3, pushing the race into a runoff election in January.

Because Republicans hold a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, Loeffler’s seat is key to stopping Democrats from expanding late-term abortions and forcing taxpayers to pay for unborn babies’ abortion deaths.

Earlier this year, Planned Parenthood expressed confidence that Warnock would support this radical pro-abortion agenda, according to Breitbart.

Nebraska’s dismemberment abortion ban goes into effect

by Administrator

A Nebraska bill banning dismemberment abortions was passed by the legislature earlier this year. Now, with no legal challenges against it, it has officially taken effect.

The Omaha World-Herald reported that the law took effect last week. This means that dilation and evacuation, or D&E, abortions are now illegal in the state of Nebraska. Often committed in the second trimester, a D&E is a violent procedure that takes several days to complete, and results in the dismemberment of a child who is often still alive.

On the first day, the abortionist inserts laminaria into the mother’s cervix to begin dilation.

HORRIFIC: Netherlands allows doctors to forcibly euthanize dementia patients

by Administrator

The Netherlands sparked international outrage after a 2017 report stated an elderly woman with dementia was forcibly euthanized. Her doctor first drugged her with a sedative, and then instructed her family to hold her down as she fought back. The doctor was eventually cleared of all charges after several years, but the Dutch government has now loosened their euthanasia regulations to make sure no doctor will have to worry about such charges again.

According to the NL Times, an English-language news source, The Netherlands’ five regional euthanasia review committees (RTEs) announced an adjustment to the requirements in the Euthanasia Code, with the express goal of making it easier for doctors to euthanize patients with dementia.
