Dr John Maher, who is a leading psychiatrist and editor-in-chief, of the prestigous Journal of Ethics in Mental Health wrote an excellent analysis of the current euthanasia (MAiD) practise in Canada that was published in the Hamilton Spectator on January 4. Maher examines the current situation through the lens of how Canada got into this situation. Maher writes:

Step 1: Supreme Court Carter decision (2015): Some Canadians with progressively debilitating terminal diseases (like ALS) said they were forced to end their own lives sooner than they would wish because as their disease progressed they wouldn’t be able to physically end their own lives.

WASHINGTON (CNS) — The surge in COVID-19 cases caused by the omicron variant is hardly affecting plans for local marches, rallies, Masses and prayer events to mark the 49th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion.

Across the country, events are planned over the next several weeks to advocate for the protection of the unborn in addition to the 49th March for Life planned for Washington Jan. 21.

Beyond public rallies and marches, bishops nationwide are planning to celebrate Masses in their dioceses in the days near the Jan. 22 anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

In the first of several local marches, Chicago Cardinal Blase J.

Catholic High School Fires Teachers After They Allowed Pro-Abortion Article in Student Newspaper

Catholic High School Fires Teachers After They Allowed Pro-Abortion Article in Student Newspaper

An Aurora, Colorado Catholic high school allegedly fired two teachers this winter for allowing a pro-abortion opinion piece to be published in the student magazine.

The Colorado Sentinel reports the student opinion piece upset parents after it appeared in the winter edition of the Regis Jesuit High School student magazine “Elevate” in December. The column advocates for the killing of unborn babies in abortions in contradiction to Catholic Church teachings.

In a letter published Dec. 17, principal Jimmy Tricco said they retracted the magazine issue because of the “deeply troubling and unacceptable” opinion piece.

“An opinion piece that presented a stance on abortion clearly in opposition to Church teaching was included that we found both deeply troubling and unacceptable,” Tricco wrote with school president David Card.

Pastor is Heartbroken Over the “Babies That Have Been Victims of Abortion”

Thousands of pro-lifers from across the Midwest overflowed down Michigan Avenue in support of pre-born babies this weekend at the Chicago march for Life.

“Welcome to the battleground, welcome to the resistance, welcome to the March for Life Chicago 2022,” said weDignify student mentor Dante Bucci to thousands of life advocates gathered at Federal Plaza on Saturday, January 8, before they marched down Michigan Avenue to publicly witness for the rights of unborn babies.

During the rally, a full line-up of speakers including Representative Avery Bourne (95th District), Pastor Chris Butler, Kelly Dore, and Sr. Alicia Torres encouraged attendees to speak out for life – to advocate, to teach others, and to serve mothers and their babies.

Over 50 People Have Been Euthanized Since Spain Legalized Euthanasia

Over 50 People Have Been Euthanized Since Spain Legalized Euthanasia

An article published by Spark Chronicles indicates that since legalizing euthanasia on June 25, 2021, Spain has had at least 50 euthanasia deaths and 130 requests.

The article states that data from 10 out of the 17 autonomous regions in Spain indicated that the majority of the euthanasia deaths have been for neurodegenerative or oncological diseases and out of 130 known applications, (74%) were approved and approximately half of the applicants died before the euthanasia could be done.

Spain’s euthanasia law is oriented toward approving euthanasia for people with disabilities. Spain approves euthanasia for:

“serious, chronic and debilitating conditions or serious, incurable diseases causing intolerable suffering”

The data confirms my concerns related to euthanasia for people with disabilities.

Abortion Activists Threaten to Rape, Kill Pro-Life Legislator Who Filed Bill to Ban Abortions

Nebraska police are investigating at least nine reported threats against pro-life state Sen. Julie Slama after she introduced a bill last week to ban abortions on unborn babies once their heartbeat is detectable.

The Omaha World-Herald confirmed with the Nebraska State Patrol that they are investigating after Slama, R-Sterling, said she received multiple messages online threatening violence and death against her and her family.

“It’s fascinating to see the death threats, rape threats, & sexually explicit comments sent by self-proclaimed ‘feminists’ to me, a female state senator, because I introduced a #prolife Heartbeat Bill,” Slama wrote on Twitter.

According to the newspaper, Slama provided copies of nine messages that she received, one showing the photo of a monkey holding a gun along with the words “this is a threat.”

On January 8, pro-lifers rallied together to advocate for the preborn and protest the heavy presence of abortion in Illinois at the March for Life in Chicago. The march was hosted by weDignify, an organization that helps college students serve as effective pro-life leaders on their campus and within their communities. 

In a statement to Live Action News, Caitlyn Bootsma, Director of Marketing and Communications for weDignify, explained the purpose behind the march and why now, more than ever, it is crucial to spread the pro-life message. 

“The March for Life Chicago is a program of weDignify, and everyone is here today, as a whole, not just in Illinois but the entire Midwestern region, to come together to protest abortion and to fight for a culture of life in Chicago which is rapidly becoming known as the abortion capital of the Midwest,” Bootsma said.

New Jersey Legislature Passes Bill Legalizing Killing Babies in Abortions Up to Birth

New Jersey Legislature Passes Bill Legalizing Killing Babies in Abortions Up to Birth

New Jersey passed a radical pro-abortion law Monday to legalize abortions up to birth and allowing non-doctors to kill babies in abortions. Gov. Phil Murphy is expected to sign the misnamed Reproductive Freedom Act, or the Freedom of Reproductive Choice Act, into law.

The legislation guarantees “the fundamental right of reproductive autonomy,” even though women already have reproductive autonomy and choice prior to the decision to end a baby’s life in an abortion as reproduction has already taken place.

The radical measure also could lead to forcing New Jersey residents to fund abortions with their tax dollars. If the state Department of Banking and Insurance deems abortion funding necessary, then state residents could be compelled to pay for killing unborn children in abortions with their tax funds.

For those who want to see the end of the death penalty, there have been some troubling developments in 2021.  50 years ago, the US Supreme Court in Furman v. Georgia held that the death penalty as applied was “cruel and unusual” and therefore in violation of the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution. The Court plurality found it inconsistent with “the evolving standards of decency that mark the

Last-minute text from pregnancy center worker saves preborn baby’s life

Last-minute text from pregnancy center worker saves preborn baby’s life

by Administrator

A pro-life book tells the stories of women who were helped by pregnancy resource centers. One of these women was Jade, who had had two abortions and was facing a third unplanned pregnancy. Her boyfriend was pressuring her to abort.

Jade spoke to a counselor named Liz at an Arkansas pregnancy resource center and arranged to come to the center. But she never made it to that appointment. Instead, she went to an abortion facility for her scheduled appointment there, intending to abort her baby.

But as Jade sat in her car alone outside the facility, she wavered. She wasn’t sure what to do.

Planned Parenthood Was Racist Under Margaret Sanger. Nothing Has Changed

Planned Parenthood Was Racist Under Margaret Sanger. Nothing Has Changed

Seattle’s corporate scene was recently abuzz with the removal of Planned Parenthood affiliate CEO Chris Charbonneau after controversy following her use of racist language on the job. In 2020, the head of New York Planned Parenthood, Laura McQuade, was ousted after being accused of treating Black workers unfairly. The 2020 Planned Parenthood CEO Compensation Report, newly released by the American Life League, demonstrates the disturbing statistic that only ten percent of the abortion giant’s executives are people of color and Planned Parenthood’s Black CEOs are among the lowest paid.

“The racially prejudiced behavior of Planned Parenthood leaders and discriminatory trends in the organization’s hiring and financial practices are not as surprising as one might think considering the group’s blatantly racist beginnings,” declared Jim Sedlak, Executive Director of the American Life League and chief author of the report.

Pro-Life Student Schools School After Teachers Called Her “Bigot” for Starting a Pro-Life Club

Several Indiana public school teachers are accused of posting defamatory statements about a student online after she tried to start a pro-life club in the Noblesville School District, according to a lawsuit filed this week in federal court.

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, which is helping the student, slammed school authorities for discriminating against the student because of her pro-life views.

“The degree to which adults in authority attempted to intimidate a high school freshman is astonishing,” Hawkins said.

Charitable Allies, Inc., of Indianapolis, filed the lawsuit this week on behalf of the student, a minor referred to as E.D.,

(Right to Life UK) — The Royal Preston Hospital in Lancashire has issued happy birthday wishes to its youngest ever premature baby to be discharged.

Stella Haigh was born 18 weeks early at just 22 weeks and 3 days, weighing just 480g.

After being born, Stella spent five months on the Trust’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where she received 24/7 support from staff as well as her parents, Jade and Stuart Haigh.

Six months before Stella’s birth, guidelines for the UK’s neonatal units were changed, after a  revised framework for managing the tiniest preterm babies – those born below 24 weeks gestation – was introduced.

WATCH: Feminist Arrested After Hitting Pro-Life Man in the Face With a Sign

Police arrested a Pensacola, Florida woman last week after she hit a pro-life advocate in the face with a sign outside the only abortion facility in the city.

The report adds to the growing wave of assaults, threats, vandalism and other acts targeting pro-life advocates in recent years.

A video of the latest incident posted on the WEAR-TV 3 website shows a group of pro-life advocates sitting peacefully along the sidewalk near a busy road, displaying signs that showed babies who were victims of abortion; one read “Abortion is a sin.”

In the video, a woman can be seen approaching the group from behind, quickly grabbing one of their signs and hitting a pro-life man with it, knocking his cell phone out of his hand.

Democrat Congressman Admits Democrat Party is Too Pro-Abortion: “This is a Real Problem”

Democrat Congressman Admits Democrat Party is Too Pro-Abortion: “This is a Real Problem”

Even Democrats in Congress are warning their party that its radical pro-abortion agenda is turning off voters.

Last week, a U.S. House Democrat who represents a swing district related this frustration in an interview with Politico. The news outlet excluded names so Democrat lawmakers and staffers could “speak freely” about their problems with Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Sean Patrick Maloney and his strategies.

“This is a real f—— problem,” the lawmaker said, pointing to a major disconnect between the committee and Democrat voters.

Experts are predicting major losses for Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections amid President Joe Biden’s dismal approval rating and several unexpected losses and near-losses in Virginia and New Jersey this year.

Abortion Advocates Care More About Selling Abortions Than Protecting Women’s Health

Abortion Advocates Care More About Selling Abortions Than Protecting Women’s Health

Female leaders are “sounding the alarm” about the Biden administration’s decision to severely weaken longstanding FDA safety regulations on the abortion drug mifepristone.

In a piece at The Hill, U.S. Rep. Diana Harshbarger, a pharmacist and Tennessee Republican, and Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, warned women that abortion activists are downplaying the life-threatening risks of the drug for their own profit.

“Shamefully, the abortion industry cares more about upping their abortion quota and making a profit than the safety and well-being of vulnerable women and girls,” they wrote. “They downplay the risks … but they are far from the safe, easy, and near-painless solution to pregnancy that the industry would have women believe.”

According to a story in the Vancouver Sun, a Chinese woman underwent a forced abortion where the baby was born alive. Seeking asylum in Canada, she told her story to the board determining whether she would be allowed to stay. According to the Vancouver Sun:

She told the board she underwent a forced abortion 13 years ago, when she was seven months pregnant with her third child. After the abortion, she told the board, she had another child in hiding. When authorities discovered she was pregnant with a fourth child, she was dragged to the hospital for another abortion, which included the fetus being injected with a poison in front of her.

The Australian assisted suicide enthusiast who recently made headlines for his suicide machine that will kill people with the click of a button seems to have another disturbing method of death up his sleeve: an implanted device that will be used to end people’s lives. According to The Independent, Dr. Philip Nitschke is advocating for the use of the yet-to-be-created implants for people who may suffer from degenerative brain diseases.

Known as “Dr. Death,” Nitschke has long been known for championing assisted suicide and euthanasia. He is the founder and director of Exit International, a pro-euthanasia group, and he also launched Pegasos, a Switzerland-based organization that promotes “euthanasia tourism,” which helps healthy Dutch people travel to Switzerland so that they can legally kill themselves.

Liberal Men are Getting Vasectomies to Protest Texas Abortion Ban

A Texas doctor said his practice has seen a nearly 15% increase in vasectomies as men try to push back against the state’s abortion law, The Washington Post (WaP0) reported Sunday.

Koushik Shaw, a doctor who practices at the Austin Urology Institute, told WaPo his practice saw a roughly 15% increase in scheduled vasectomies following the state’s Sept. 1 abortion ban.

Shaw told the outlet patients are coming in, saying “‘Hey, I’m actually here because some of these changes that [Gov. Greg] Abbott and our legislature have passed that are really impacting our decision-making in terms of family planning,’ so that was a new one for me as a reason – the first time, patients are citing a state law as their motivating factor.”

Unborn Baby Removed From Mother’s Womb for Heart Surgery, Then Put Back In

Rylan Harrison Drinnon is alive today because doctors believed that he was a valuable human being while he was still in the womb.

In May, a team of surgeons at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio performed a complex, three-hour surgery to remove a tumor from Rylan’s heart while he was still in the womb. His condition is so rare that doctors believe he is only the second person in the world to successfully undergo the surgery.

Cleveland.com reports Rylan was born on July 13 to Sam and Dave Drinnon, of Pittsburgh, approximately 10 weeks after he and his mother underwent the surgery.

Baby Girl Abandoned at Birth Because of Her Albino Skin is Now a Model

When she was a baby, Xueli Abbing was abandoned outside an orphanage because of her albinism. Now she is thriving as an international model and campaigner for albinism representation.

The teenager, who has lived with her adoptive family in The Netherlands since the age of 3, said: “At the time I was born in China, the government enforced a one child policy on families. You were extremely unlucky if you had a child with albinism. Some children, like me, were abandoned, others were locked away or if they did go to school their hair was painted black”.

“But in some countries in Africa, they are hunted, their limbs may be cut off or they are killed.

India Has Killed 46 Million Girls in Sex-Selection Abortions, Where are the Feminists?

India Has Killed 46 Million Girls in Sex-Selection Abortions, Where are the Feminists?

Pro-abortion feminists remain largely silent as baby girls in the womb are targeted for sex-selection abortions at a massive rate across the world.

In India alone, experts estimate that approximately 46 million girls have been singled out for abortions specifically because they were girls in the past 50 years, the New York Post reports.

The discrimination hurts mothers, too. Frequently, mothers are forced or coerced into aborting their unborn daughters, or they are abused for refusing to do so. A few recently shared their stories with The Guardian to shed light on the growing problem.

One woman, a 40-year-old from Mumbai, said her family forced her to abort eight unborn babies this year because they were girls.

The special bond formed between a woman and one of her students led to a forever family. Seven-year-old William had cycled through six families in foster care when he met Paige Bramlett, who had been hired as a behavioral specialist. She began working with William, who was in kindergarten, and their connection was immediate.

Bramlett was scheduled for three hours of one-on-one time with William each day, due to his struggles from being in foster care.

“He was very isolated because he didn’t know coping skills, and he really struggled,” she told Good Morning America. “Since I was one-on-one with him, a lot of our time was spent working on coping skills, behavioral skills, talking about how we behave in school, those types of things.

Joe Biden Uses Our Tax Dollars to Fund UN Agency Killing Babies in Abortions

Joe Biden Uses Our Tax Dollars to Fund UN Agency Killing Babies in Abortions

Joe Biden has aggressively promoted and enabled abortion for an entire year both across the country and around the world.

One of the ways in which Biden is promoting abortion worldwide is something most people don’t know about. He made the decision earlier this year to give taxpayer funds to a UN agency that promotes abortions across the globe. Not only does this agency promote abortion it also manufactures drugs and devices that are used to kill babies in abortions.

As CFAM details:

Under former U.S. president Donald Trump, UNFPA issued statements urging the U.S. not to withhold its funding, claiming it did not promote abortion.
