People with disabilities speak out against assisted suicide expansion in Canada

by Administrator

As Canada moves to expand eligibility to assisted suicide, people with disabilities are speaking out. Bill C-7 would expand euthanasia to include those whose deaths are not “reasonably foreseeable,” which essentially would allow someone to kill themselves due to disability.

Amy Hasbrouck, founder and executive director of Toujours Vivant-Not Dead Yet, told the Catholic Register she hopes the bill fails. “As a society, we have a policy to prevent suicides,” she said, “except in the case of medical aid in dying.” By striking the “reasonably foreseeable” language from the assisted suicide legislation, Hasbrouck says any person with a disability qualifies.

“When you get sick you are going to be (disabled).

40 Pro-Life Groups Oppose Joe Biden’s Radical Pro-Abortion HHS Pick Xavier Becerra

40 Pro-Life Groups Oppose Joe Biden’s Radical Pro-Abortion HHS Pick Xavier Becerra

by Administrator

A powerhouse coalition of more than 40 pro-family and pro-life leaders joined a letter written by Students for Life Action calling on U.S. Senators to VOTE NO on the confirmation of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to head the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS.) 

About the letter to be delivered today to U.S. Senators, Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins said, “Pro-family and pro-life leaders have come together to send the clear message that weaponizing America’s healthcare systems against pro-lifers and people of faith must never be allowed or tolerated. There is a reason that Planned Parenthood and their abortion allies believe they have been ‘wildly successful’ with a possible Becerra pick.

Canadian woman loses battle to prevent husband of 48 years from death by euthanasia

Canadian woman loses battle to prevent husband of 48 years from death by euthanasia

by Administrator

In October, a Canadian woman lost her battle to prevent her husband of almost 50 years from dying by euthanasia. Katherine, whose last name has not been released, had been married to her suicidal husband for 48 years. Katherine went to court to prevent him from being killed by doctors at his request.

Her husband first applied for euthanasia in April of 2020 but was turned down. Assessors believed 1) he wasn’t mentally competent to give consent to assisted death due to his dementia, and 2) his illness (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) would not cause imminent death. Katherine has argued that her husband was delusional about his health and believed he was terminally ill when he really wasn’t.

Feminists Want Joe Biden to Allow Killing More Babies in Abortions With the Abortion Pill

Feminists Want Joe Biden to Allow Killing More Babies in Abortions With the Abortion Pill

by Administrator

Abortion activists are putting pressure on Joe Biden to expand abortions by ending U.S. Food and Drug Administration safety regulations on abortion drugs.

The abortion drug mifepristone is responsible for millions of unborn babies’ abortion deaths in the United States. It has been linked to dozens of women’s deaths and thousands of complications. After England abandoned similar safety regulations this spring, reports of women dying and the abortion drugs being abused to kill viable, late-term unborn babies surfaced.

Despite the growing evidence of dangers, abortion activists in the U.S. are continuing to push to end the safety regulations.

In a piece at Time magazine this week, Rachel Rebouché, a dean and professor at the Temple University School of Law, said the Biden administration does not need the U.S.

Abortion Clinic Wants to Kill Babies in Abortions and Throw Their Bodies in the Trash

Abortion Clinic Wants to Kill Babies in Abortions and Throw Their Bodies in the Trash

by Administrator

Indiana abortion activists filed a new lawsuit Monday challenging a state law that requires abortion facilities to bury or cremate the remains of aborted babies.

The lawsuit seems unlikely to succeed, given that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of the law in 2019, but abortion activists are taking a new approach this time by accusing the state of forcing a specific belief on women.

The Indy Star reports the parties in the lawsuit include three anonymous women and the Women’s Med Group, an Indianapolis abortion facility.

They claim the state of Indiana is forcing its beliefs about personhood on women who may disagree, according to the report.

Lori Ann Kelly worked at the University of Pittsburgh, overseeing projects to collect aborted baby body parts for research. Kelly told her story on the PureFlix series, “Beautiful Lives.” Even though Kelly had worked at the University for over 20 years before she took her job, she had no idea the University did fetal tissue research or that they committed abortions:

I never knew the University hospital actually performed abortions, and the tissue bank collected tissue from those abortions…

I was shocked since I had worked at the university for 20+ years, that I didn’t know this. And I realized what a tremendous secret it was they were keeping.

New Zealand survey reveals shortage of doctors willing to commit abortions

New Zealand survey reveals shortage of doctors willing to commit abortions

by Administrator

Earlier this year, New Zealand officially decriminalized abortion. Through the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, women can obtain an abortion for any reason they choose. After 20 weeks, it remains legal, as long as two doctors approve. Yet according to a survey from the Ministry of Health, the country is having difficulty finding doctors willing to commit late-term abortions now that they are legal.

The Ministry of Health recently released a summary of the quarterly survey with the 19 District Health Boards [DHBs]. Though the full survey has not yet been released, the summary is still eye-opening. The report states that the majority of DHBs are willing to commit abortions in the first trimester, including surgical procedures.

Planned Parenthood wants supporters to ‘discuss abortion access policy’ over Christmas dinner

Planned Parenthood wants supporters to ‘discuss abortion access policy’ over Christmas dinner

by Administrator

Christmas is traditionally the time of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ into the world thousands of years ago. Those who are not Christians may simply celebrate it as a time of gift giving, feasting, and spending time with loved ones. But for the abortion industry, it is apparently an opportunity to exploit a holiday with the goal of further pushing a pro-abortion agenda. Planned Parenthood, the country’s largest abortion chain, is encouraging its supporters to spend the holidays with their families promoting abortion.

In a string of tweets, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund — the lobbying arm of the abortion chain — gave seven “tips” on how to talk about abortion with family members.

During the pregnancy with their first child, Lesha and Eric were repeatedly given bad news by the doctors. Lesha, who at the time considered herself “pro-choice,” considered abortion. But when Eric, who was pro-life, shared a Live Action Abortion Procedures video with her, she saw the truth of what happens during an abortion and knew she couldn’t go through with it.

“I was 22 when we got married. My husband was very pro-life, very against abortion, but for me on the other end, I was completely for it,” said Lesha in a Live Action video. “Sometimes we would find ourselves, like, butting heads about it.

Federal Judge Blocks Arkansas Laws Saving Babies From Abortions

Federal Judge Blocks Arkansas Laws Saving Babies From Abortions

by Administrator

Arkansas once again is being prevented from enforcing four pro-life laws that would save unborn babies from abortions and protect young victims of sexual abuse.

For three years, state leaders have been fighting in court to be allowed to protect unborn babies’ lives. Then, last week, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the state and allowed the laws to go into effect starting Tuesday.

Late Tuesday, however, U.S. District Court Judge Kristine Baker put another halt to the state’s efforts to protect life, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports. She issued a temporary restraining order blocking the state from enforcing the laws until Jan.

Alex Padilla, the California politician chosen to fill Kamala Harris’s open U.S. Senate seat, received high praise from the Planned Parenthood abortion chain this week.

Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Padilla as his choice for the position Tuesday. Padilla is the California Secretary of State and a former state senator. Like Harris, the vice president-elect, he has a long history of supporting abortion on demand.

“In this moment of health care crisis, we at [Planned Parenthood] can’t wait to get to work with Senator (!) @AlexPadilla4CA — a longtime, unapologetic champion of sexual & reproductive health & rights …” said Yasmin Radjy, the national political director for Planned Parenthood’s political arm, this week.

“Feliz Navidad” Singer Jose Feliciano Became Pro-Life After the Birth of His Daughter

“Feliz Navidad” Singer Jose Feliciano Became Pro-Life After the Birth of His Daughter

It makes sense that a man who wrote and sang a popular song celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ would celebrate all births. But it wasn’t always the case for Jose Feliciano, whose “Feliz Navidad” is a Christmastime staple.

“I used to be pro-abortion, many, many years ago,” Feliciano, who was born blind, recently told the National Catholic Register. “I would have called myself pro-choice,” the 75-year-old said. “But then when I had my daughter Melissa, I went the other way … when I heard Melissa’s little heartbeat on the monitor, I said, “Well, wait a minute. Even if all there is a heartbeat, that’s life, that’s life …”

A Puerto Rico native, Feliciano had a string of hits in the 1970s with covers of “California Dreamin,’” The Doors’ “Light My Fire” and others.

‘The ultimate reward’: Surgery in the womb saves babies from potentially fatal condition

‘The ultimate reward’: Surgery in the womb saves babies from potentially fatal condition

by Administrator

Pregnant 31-year-old Luissa underwent a medical procedure in 2016, but the surgery wasn’t for her. It was for her preborn baby girl who had been diagnosed with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), a rare and often fatal condition affecting one in 4,000 preborn children who have a hole in the diaphragm — the thin sheet of muscle that separates the chest from the abdomen.

The hole causes the liver or bowels to move up into the chest cavity, which prevents the lungs from fully developing, according to The Guardian. Without the procedure, babies with severe CDH have a 15-20% chance of survival.

Satanic Temple billboards claim, ‘Abortions save lives!’

Satanic Temple billboards claim, ‘Abortions save lives!’

by Administrator

The Satanic Temple is back after a failed attempt to overturn Missouris’ abortion laws, promoting its pro-abortion message on billboards. According to the Houston Chronicle, the Temple erected billboards in Texas and Florida to raise awareness of its purported abortion “rituals” — and also to claim that pregnancy is dangerous.

“Abortions save lives!” the billboard reads in large letters. Underneath, it says, “Our religious abortion ritual averts many state restrictions.” The Satanic Temple’s so-called “abortion ritual” seems to have been created less out of actual spiritual fervor, and more to skirt pro-life laws. During the rite, a Satanist merely recites personal affirmations in the mirror before and after an abortion procedure.

CTV National News medical correspondent Avis Favaro, produced an insightful program on (MAiD) euthanasia. 


Favaro interviews a woman, who is not dying, but wants to die by euthanasia, two women with disabilities who explain why Bill C-7 threatens their lives, a doctor who cares for people with disabilities and the chief executive of a euthanasia lobby group. 

Favaro starts her news report by introducing the debate:

The agony that Cheryl Romaire lives with is so debilitating that some days, she feels her body “might actually just physically die from the pain.” Marie — not her real name — also lives with multiple disabilities, pain, nerve degeneration, neuropathy, and has trouble walking and standing.

Operation Rescue is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2020 Person of the Year Malachi Award is President Donald J. Trump.

The Malachi Award is given by Operation Rescue every year to recognize individuals who sacrificially work to advance the cause of protecting the pre-born.

During President Trump’s Administration, he has done more to protect unborn lives than any other President in U.S. History.

When he first took office, he immediately set out to defund those that promote abortion worldwide.  He established policies at the Department of Health and Human Services that completely changed the philosophy of government from one that favored abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, to one that promised to protect life “from conception until natural death.”

Sources in President Donald Trump’s administration accused “swampy Republican appointees” of thwarting some of the president’s efforts to protect unborn babies and preserve religious freedom, Fox News reported this week.

The report adds evidence to concerns that pro-life leaders have expressed for months about government officials in the Office of General Counsel.

While Trump made huge progress for life, the three sources suggested that even more could have been done if the Office of General Counsel had been more cooperative, according to the report. These things include investigating a whistleblower’s accusations that Planned Parenthood violated HIPAA and sold aborted baby body parts and supporting conscience rules that protect pro-life medical workers.

Though her abusive husband tried to kill her, she chose life for her triplet daughters

Though her abusive husband tried to kill her, she chose life for her triplet daughters

by Administrator

In 1996, a 26-year-old Indian woman chose life for her triplet daughters — despite pressure to abort, threats to her life from her abusive husband, and judgment from her community.

When the triplets were three months in utero, Jasbeer Kaur’s doctor recommended that she abort them. The “dreaded advice,” as Kaur described it in an interview with The Better India, was that “abortion is not expensive. I am sure you can afford it, against the massive cost you will incur by raising three daughters. If you go ahead with this decision, you can maybe even save your marriage.”

Kaur had married in 1995 and quickly realized her husband was both a physically and mentally abusive alcoholic.

Massachusetts House and Senate reject governor’s abortion-related changes to budget

Massachusetts House and Senate reject governor’s abortion-related changes to budget

by Administrator

Both the Massachusetts House and Senate have rejected Governor Charlie Baker’s proposed changes to the pro-abortion amendment lawmakers added to the state budget. Baker approved the budget of $46 million on December 11, 2020, but removed portions that included a proposal to expand abortion access in Massachusetts. The House voted 107-49 on December 16 and the Senate voted 32-8 on December 18, to reject Baker’s changes.

The amendment, which was approved in November by veto-proof majorities in both the House and the Senate, aims to allow abortion after 24 weeks for “fatal fetal anomalies,” and change the language to allow abortion after 24 weeks if a doctor determines an abortion will “preserve” the mother’s physical or mental health.

The Toronto Star published an excellent article on December 21, 2020 by Lisa Bendall, a disability leader and former editor of Abilities Magazine.

Lisa Bendall

Bendall’s article concerns Bill C-7, the bill to expand euthanasia in Canada, and its effect on people with disabilities. Bill C-7 is currently being debated by Canada’s Senate. Bendall explains:

Senators are currently deliberating Bill C-7, which would allow assisted suicide for people who aren’t near death. Not all people, mind you; just people who happen to have disabilities. While many of us fear that this bill might steer vulnerable people toward an untimely death, others argue that that’s a paternalistic viewpoint, and that the law would have built-in protections.

Catholic Bishops Condemn Argentina President’s “Obsession” With Killing Babies in Abortion

The Catholic bishops of Argentina issued a strong message Monday condemning their political leaders’ “feverish obsession” with legalizing abortion instead of working to alleviate the real suffering in their country.

Argentina President Alberto Fernández introduced a bill to legalize abortions for any reason up to 14 weeks earlier this year. On Dec. 11, the country’s lower house passed the bill. It now awaits action in the Senate where pro-lifers hope lawmakers will reject it as they did a similar bill in 2018.

In a statement Monday, the Catholic bishops said legalizing the killing of unborn babies in abortions will not help the many people who are suffering, Crux reports.

Planned Parenthood is preparing its wish list for former Vice President Joe Biden’s prospective administration, but pro-life forces are gearing up for a fight.

In a Roll Call interview, Planned Parenthood Action Fund President and CEO Alexis McGill Johnson said her organization’s top goal in 2021 is abolishing the Hyde Amendment, which for 40 years has prohibited federal funding for most abortions.

“A lot of, I think, the public conversation has to be around how a policy like Hyde, which discriminates against low-income people largely and people of color, you know, is in a moment where those same people are being disproportionately affected by a pandemic and access to health care broadly,” McGill Johnson told Roll Call.
