Belgium: Senate Approves Measure Allowing Doctors to Euthanize Children The Belgian Senate voted today 50-17 to extend euthanasia to children with disabilities, in a move pro-life advocates worldwide had been fearing would come and expand an already much-abused euthanasia law even further. The vote today in the full Senate comes after a Senate committee voted 13-4 to allow minors to seek euthanasia under certain conditions and the measure also would extend the right to request euthanasia to adults with dementia. There is still a chance to stop the bill in the House of Representatives, though pro-life campaigners fear it will become law. Read More

Senate Democrats Approve Obama Judge Who Said Abortion “Frees Women” The U.S. Senate today approved to a prominent federal court pro-abortion Cornelia Pillard, a law professor President Barack Obama selected for an appointment to the most important appeals court in the nation. Obama’s pick for the D.C. Circuit Court, who is one of the most pro-abortion ever nominated, previously was a filibuster victim, but that changed when Senate Democrats unilaterally changed the filibuster rules to prevent pro-life Republicans from blocking such judges.

Huffington Post: “We Can Have Morally Good Abortions” While it’s almost nice to hear a pro-abortion argument that isn’t some version of the “Keep Your Rosaries Off My Ovaries” shriek, Huffington Post blogger Donna Schaper’s contention – that abortion is moral – isn’t any more effective, and it’s rather more insulting. The left-wing United Church of Christ minister recently argued that “Abortion can be a highly moral choice for a woman.” Surprised? You’re not alone. The post is titled, “Most Women Under 40 Haven’t Heard the Pro-choice Moral Argument.” Perhaps because there isn’t one – or if there is, it’s not the one Schaper made in her piece. Read More

Wendy Davis Letter: I Experienced “Discomfort” Pushing Late-Term Abortions Wendy Davis is headlong into her campaign to become the next governor of Texas and the state legislator known for filibustering a bill to ban late-term abortions this week issued a new fundraising letter to raise cash for her campaign. “I stood on the Texas state Senate floor for nearly 13 hours to speak up for you,” Davis opens. “And even though I wasn’t allowed to eat, drink, sit or lean on my desk or leave the Senate floor, the discomfort I felt was nothing compared to what some families go through on a daily basis.” Read More

Mother Ignores Advice to Abort “Disabled” Son, He’s Doing Great Two Years Later From the doctors’ perspective, perhaps they believed they were doing the “best” for everyone when they advised Natasha Williams to abort her unborn baby after a scan at 20 weeks diagnosed him with Ellis-van Creveld syndrome–a bone growth disorder. The 26-year-old Williams was told her unborn son’s body “would probably not develop sufficiently to support his organs,” Emma Innes of the British newspaper The Daily Mail wrote today. “When the doctor said I should think about termination, I wasn’t surprised,” Williams told Innes. “I had a feeling they would raise that as an option.” Not only that, she was told they only had a weekend to decide.

Planned Parenthood Cuts Breast Screenings 34% After Exploiting Komen for Millions I hate to say I told you so. That’s usually an empty phrase. Let’s face it: most people love to say “I told you so.” But in this case, I really do hate it—because I successfully predicted that something pretty awful would happen. Back in February of 2012, the Susan G. Komen controversy was at its zenith. You’ll recall that Susan G. Komen announced that it would stop funding Planned Parenthood, which it had been doing to the tune of about $600,000 a year, and use that money for other projects instead. Planned Parenthood responded with an extensive media campaign denouncing Susan G. Komen’s decision. Read More

Politifact Lie of the Year: Obama’s “If You Like Your Health Plan You Can Keep It” When Congress debated the Obamacare health care law, pro-life advocates were often the one early voice exposing how the law would cause rationing of life-saving care. Obamacare supporters have mocked the claim and the media went after Sarah Palin saying Americans should be concerned about “death panels.” With Obamacare not yet going into full effect, Americans are already losing their insurance plans.
