  • Secular Pro-Life responds to Amnesty International’s recommendation that a 10-year-old rape victim in Paraguay should be made to undergo an abortion at 22 weeks – for her “safety”:

    An abortion on a pregnancy this advanced is performed by lethal injection to the unborn baby’s heart, after which the mother goes into labor to expel the corpse. That means this poor 10-year-old is going to experience labor no matter what happens….

    The only question is whether she will give birth to a live baby or a dead one. But Amnesty International doesn’t even consider the idea of allowing this baby to take a breath. They’re just using this case to push a “safe abortion” agenda. I’m afraid the days when Amnesty International actually stood up for human rights are long gone.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

  • Clinic Quotes posts remarks on abortion from Dietrich Bonhoeffer (pictured left), a pastor who was executed after joining an assassination attempt on Adolf Hitler during WWII:

    Destruction of the embryo in the mother’s womb is a violation of the right to live which God has bestowed upon this nascent life. To raise the question whether we are here concerned already with a human being or not is merely to confuse the issue. The simple fact is that God certainly intended to create a human being and that this nascent human being has been deliberately deprived of his life. And that is nothing but murder.

  • At Live Action News, Rebecca Downs says now – not a year from now – is the time to find out where the Presidential candidates of both parties stand on the issue of life. She says, “With any hope, the right to life will be at the forefront of the campaigns, as candidates communicate to voters where they stand on this issue.”

  • Wesley J. Smith calls out Princeton’s (unethical) bioethicist Dr. Peter Singer (pictured right) for “argu[ing] that it is ‘reasonable’ for the government or private insurance companies to deny treatment to infants with disabilities”:

    On Sunday April 16… Singer’s remarks were made on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio,” which is broadcast on New York’s AM 970 and Philadelphia 990 AM. In the interview, which was perhaps ironically conducted as part of a press tour Singer is currently on promoting his new book about charities, “The Most Good You Can Do: How Effective Altruism Is Changing Ideas About Living Ethically,” the professor advocated the shocking claim that health care laws like the Affordable Care Act should be more overt about rationing and that we should acknowledge the necessity of “intentionally ending the lives of severely disabled infants.”

    “Mr. Charity” then makes an uncharitable utilitarian assertion: Without offering any concrete measure on how quality of life could or should be determined, Singer admitted, “I don’t want my health insurance premiums to be higher so that infants who can experience zero quality of life can have expensive treatments.”

  • A Culture of Life posts a powerful video of their recent event in which Dame Colleen Bayer, adoptive mom and director of Family Life International NZ expressed sentiments quite the opposite of Peter Singer’s; she encouraged “welcoming all people, especially unborn children, who have disabilities – including those whose lives may be very short”:
