Euthanasia group: People must be vaccinated against COVID-19 before we’ll help them die

by Administrator

A euthanasia group with locations in both Germany and Switzerland has issued a statement saying that it will only euthanize people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 or have recovered from a recent case of the virus.

“Euthanasia and the preparatory examination of the voluntary responsibility of our members willing to die require human closeness,” reads the statement from Verein Sterbehilfe (Association for Assisted Dying). “Human closeness, however, is a prerequisite and breeding ground for corona virus transmission. As of today, the 2G rule applies in our association, supplemented by situation-related measures, such as quick tests before encounters in closed rooms.”

The 2G rule is the current German policy regarding COVID-19 which states that only vaccinated or recovered individuals be allowed to enter buildings or partake in public events.

Ohio physicians perform complex surgery to save preborn baby boy’s life

Ohio physicians perform complex surgery to save preborn baby boy’s life

by Administrator

The efforts of a group of surgeons in Ohio prove that, even while residing in the womb, children are valuable human beings deserving of care. 

In May, a multidisciplinary team of medical professionals at the Cleveland Clinic performed a rare, complex fetal surgery to save the life of Rylan Harrison Drinnon. As the clinic reported in the Patient Stories section on its website, a tumor had started growing on the baby’s heart and, without intervention, would have led to fetal heart failure. 

Sam Drinnon, Rylan’s mother, recalled how she felt when doctors noticed something wrong with the development of her son’s heart during a routine ultrasound in late April.

After nearly two decades of attempts, Massachusetts will again consider assisted suicide bill

After nearly two decades of attempts, Massachusetts will again consider assisted suicide bill

by Administrator

For 20 years, the state of Massachusetts has been considering the legalization of physician-assisted suicide, but bills to do so have consistently failed. The most recent attempt was in 2020, but after advancing out of the Legislature’s Committee on Public Health that May, the proposed laws failed to pass during the legislative session. Now, another attempt is being made at decriminalizing so-called aid-in-dying.

In March 2021, two new bills were introduced: H.2381 and S.1384. A hearing was held on October 1 by the Legislature’s Committee on Public Health and the bills have the support of 84 members of the Legislature, 67 in the house and 17 in the Senate.

At 19 Her Mom Pressured Her to Get an Abortion She Regrets, 13 Years Later She’s Finally Found Healing

On November 29, 2021, I sat down with an incredible human at a local bookstore. Stephanie is a 32-year-old, strong, beautiful woman inside and out, who shared with me how she has been grappling with being a post-abortive woman.

She came prepared with everything: handwritten letters, textbook, and huge binder all in tow and ready to share her life with me, in order to help someone else out there who has a similar story.

Her story is intensely beautiful as she spoke to me about her journey through pain, loss, and healing.

Stephanie’s story started when she was 19 and found herself unexpectedly pregnant.

MSNBC seems to think killing preborn babies can fix high maternal and infant mortality rates

MSNBC seems to think killing preborn babies can fix high maternal and infant mortality rates

by Administrator

As Americans await the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization regarding Mississippi’s law restricting abortion to the first 15 weeks of pregnancy, pro-abortion news outlets have wasted no time in attacking pro-lifers.

On MSNBC’s The Reid Out with Joy Reid, Reid claimed that women will die if the Mississippi law is allowed to stand. “Bodily harm and death will certainly increase if safe and legal abortions go away,” she said. But in the more than three months that the Texas Heartbeat Act has been in effect, there has not been one instance reported of a woman dying due to a lack of access to abortion.

UN rejects rights of preborn humans on International Human Rights Day

UN rejects rights of preborn humans on International Human Rights Day

by Administrator

(National Right to Life News) The[] so-called experts [at the United Nations] have falsely declared the United States to be in violation of international law because of SB 8, the Texas law that protects unborn children whose hearts have begun to beat. Many of these same “experts,” in an unprecedented act, filed an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court regarding the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization abortion case which concerns Mississippi’s law that protects unborn babies after 15 weeks gestation.

The brief filed by U.N. “experts” asserts that “international human rights law should guide the Supreme Court,” and it also claims that laws protecting unborn children are violations of “the United States’ obligations under the human rights treaties it has signed and ratified.”

6th Arkansas City Passes Pro-Life Resolution Declaring Unborn Babies “Have a Right to Life”

6th Arkansas City Passes Pro-Life Resolution Declaring Unborn Babies “Have a Right to Life”

On Monday night the City of Aubrey, Arkansas, passed a resolution affirming that the community is Pro-Life.

Aubrey joins a growing list of Pro-Life Cities and Counties in Arkansas.

Earlier this year the Arkansas Legislature passed Act 392 of 2021 by Rep. Kendon Underwood (R – Cave Springs) and Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R – Branch). This good law affirms that cities and counties can designate themselves as Pro-Life.

Act 392 also makes it clear that Pro-Life Communities can install signs or banners announcing that they are Pro-Life.

Since Act 392 was enacted over the summer, Arkansas has seen a rapid expansion of Pro-Life Cities and Counties across the state.

Catholic groups challenge federal mandate on gender transition procedures

Catholic groups challenge federal mandate on gender transition procedures

by Administrator

WASHINGTON (CNS) — Several Catholic hospitals, a Catholic university and Mercy sisters who run health clinics filed a challenge to a federal mandate for performing gender transition procedures with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit Dec. 15.

The groups are continuing a fight they had previously won when two lower federal courts struck down what has been described as the Affordable Care Act’s “transgender mandate,” saying it was a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

The Biden administration has appealed both decisions at the 8th Circuit.

Becket, a Washington-based nonprofit religious liberty law firm that is representing some of the Catholic groups, described this case on its website as challenging a policy that threatens Catholic doctors, hospital and clinics “with multimillion-dollar penalties for sex discrimination unless they perform controversial gender-transition procedures.”

California Demands Church Pay .8 Million in COVID Fines Even Though SCOTUS Struck Down Its Worship Ban

California Demands Church Pay $3.8 Million in COVID Fines Even Though SCOTUS Struck Down Its Worship Ban

All they did was meet together for worship in obedience to the Word of God. Then the government started fining them. Now, officials have shown up with a warrant and are interrogating their employees. The worst part of all is that the Supreme Court has twice ruled in favor of Calvary Chapel San Jose, yet still state and local governments are harassing them.

First it was California Governor Gavin Newsom (D), who clung to one of the nation’s strictest lockdowns far longer than science or prudence could justify. Eventually, the Supreme Court intervened to end what had been nearly a year-long ban on indoor worship.

2021 Was a Record Pro-Life Year: 19 States Passed 106 Laws Saving Babies From Abortion

This year proved historic in the fight to restore unborn babies’ right to life in America.

Newsmax reports 19 states passed a record 106 pro-life laws in 2021, including total abortion bans that could protect tens of thousands of unborn babies every year if Roe v. Wade is overturned.

The numbers come from a new Guttmacher Institute report that tracked state legislative actions on abortion, maternal health care and other issues. Guttmacher is a pro-abortion research group and former research arm of Planned Parenthood.

Elizabeth Nash, the author of the report, described 2021 as “the worst year for abortion rights in almost half a century.”

Fathers speak out about their abortion grief: ‘Devastated would be an understatement’

Fathers speak out about their abortion grief: ‘Devastated would be an understatement’

by Administrator

Unless they are supporting abortion, men are told to remain silent on the topic. But while abortion is known as an issue that affects women, the truth is, it has an effect on fathers as well. And more of them are speaking out about the heartbreak they have experienced after losing their children to abortion.

The Daily Mail recently interviewed several men who opened up about their abortion experiences.

Jean-Paul

Jean-Paul Noel-Cephise, the first featured in the article, said he was excited to learn his girlfriend was pregnant; he had always wanted to be a father. He thought the time was right, as he and his girlfriend were happy together, he owned his own home, and he had a good job.

Nebraska bill would ban abortion after a heartbeat can be detected

Nebraska bill would ban abortion after a heartbeat can be detected

by Administrator

On January 5, the first day of the 2022 legislative session, Nebraska Senator Julie Slama introduced LB781, a bill that would restrict abortion once a preborn child’s heartbeat is detected. Twenty senators signed onto the legislation as cosponsors.

“Nebraska is a pro-life state,” Slama said in a news release. “Passing LB781 is an absolute necessity to protect innocent life. Since 2000, we have lost over 50,000 lives to abortion in Nebraska. LB781 simply makes it illegal to stop a baby’s beating heart.”

Slama’s bill is similar to the Texas Heartbeat Act, in that it requires women to undergo an ultrasound prior to abortion.

Principal Raped Teen Girl, Planned Parenthood Aborted Her Baby and Sent Her Back to Him

Principal Raped Teen Girl, Planned Parenthood Aborted Her Baby and Sent Her Back to Him

A former middle school principal was arrested last week in Indiana on two felony counts of Child Seduction for an illegal sexual relationship he had with a minor girl, who he took to a Chicago Planned Parenthood for a secret abortion.

According to a probable cause affidavit (see below) circulated recently by several news agencies, the victim had just turned 16 when Peter Allen Downey, then 45, began a physical relationship with her in 2008.  She became impregnated by him later that year.  On September 2, 2008, Downy drove the victim from the Fort Wayne, Indiana area where they both lived to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility located at 1200 N.

Dog Saves Abandoned Newborn Baby, Protecting Her Like One of Her Puppies

A dog and her puppies are being credited with helping to save a newborn who was abandoned in a field in India, possibly because she was a girl.

The Epoch Times reports local residents in Chattisgarh, India reported finding the infant while going out into the field to work in late December.

According to Chattisgarh Police, the newborn girl was naked and her umbilical cord was still attached. Local residents said the baby was surrounded by a dog and her litter of puppies, and they believe the animals kept the baby warm by snuggling up against her through the night, the Times reports.

Rachel High of Adelaide, Australia, is celebrating a monumental achievement after becoming the first known college graduate with Down syndrome in her country.

Rachel and her mother, Miriam, spoke with ABC News about the 10-year journey it took for the 44-year-old to navigate the university system and get her degree from Flinders University, saying it wasn’t necessarily the academic work but the social isolation that was most difficult for Rachel.

“There was no mentor, there was nobody meeting her at the gate and taking her into the classroom, there was nobody sharing that experience with her … and that caused incredible isolation, so much so that she didn’t want to stay,” Miriam said.

South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem: We Must “Protect the Life of Every Unborn Child”

South Dakota Gov Kristi Noem: We Must “Protect the Life of Every Unborn Child”

A South Dakota legislative committee approved another pro-life action by Gov. Kristi Noem on Thursday to protect mothers and unborn babies from dangerous abortion drugs.

DRG News reports the state Interim Rules Review Committee voted in favor of a rule that prohibits abortion drugs from being prescribed by mail or telemedicine, meaning the mother may never see a doctor in person.

Noem emphasized the need for the new rule after the Biden administration got rid of safety regulations for the abortion drug mifepristone late last year. Unless states enact laws that say otherwise, abortion businesses now may sell abortion drugs through the mail without seeing or even talking to the woman first.

by Administrator

Activist group Shut Down DC has put out an appeal for its supporters to flood Washington, D.C. with pro-abortion messaging and art in the days ahead of the annual March for Life.

The theme of this year’s March, which will take place on January 21, is “Equality Begins in the Womb.” It is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of pro-life supporters from around the country who are marching in defense of the preborn children in the womb who can be legally killed by abortion. Shut Down DC is referring to these pro-life attendees as “extremists” and “forced birthers” with “oppressive ideas.”

Few Doctors Want to Kill Babies, So Feminists Want to Force Medical Schools to Teach Abortions

Few Doctors Want to Kill Babies, So Feminists Want to Force Medical Schools to Teach Abortions

With the number who perform surgical abortions steadily declining, pro-abortionists have turned to chemical abortions (which are steadily rising) and trying (as they have for years) to force medical institutions to include training in abortion. An example of case for the latter is a story headlined  “Abortion Care Is Healthcare and Must Be Included in Medical Curricula” by Audrey Mannuel, Maya Patel and Caroline Beshers who are second year medical students.

They offer two primary reasons why abortion training should be integrated into the curricula. First (what else?) to address all the “misinformation” floating around—“misinformation that can discourage patients from seeking care.”
