The Geneva Declaration on Perinatal Care

declaration

I’ve just signed something important called the Geneva Declaration on Perinatal Care. It reminded me of why I came involved in the pro-life movement in the first place.

logoThe Declaration, which can be signed by medical practitioners and researchers, is part of a new initiative by a group of parents under the banner Every Life Counts. They want medics (and everyone else) to stop using the phrase “incompatible with life” when giving a diagnosis of a life-limiting condition for an unborn baby – and with good reason.

UK pro-choice Left “can accept no opposing view”

by Kelli

timstanley

The failure of this very modest amendment says a lot about the state of abortion politics in Britain.

The Left-wing establishment could not let it pass because it cannot tolerate the concept of any limit on access to abortion whatsoever. It proclaims that it wants abortion to be safe, legal and rare. But it regards abortion as a fundamental human right if not a positive assertion of a woman’s freedom to control her own destiny – and any attempt to constrict a human freedom is, obviously, a betrayal of that freedom in principle.

In trumpeting the right of abortion over any wider concerns about, say, its effects upon society, gender relations or (Heaven forbid) the welfare of the unborn child itself, the establishment Left has made its position as plain and bold as possible.

UK writer: Pro-lifers should fix misogyny before banning abortion

by Kelli It seems to me that there are better ways to tackle the issue of why some women feel they have to terminate otherwise healthy pregnancies; namely, by targeting the communities in which such misogyny is not just tolerated but encouraged, often with threats of violence. It is unacceptable that leaders of these societies […]

  • Wesley J. Smith adeptly points out that a “die-and-get-out-of-the-way” rationing campaign has already begun in the U.S.

    Liberal New York Times writer Bill Keller recently demeaned popular blogger Linda Bonchek Adams and her fight against cancer. Keller’s advice? Stop trying to give “false hope” to people and enter hospice already. Smith says everyone should be appalled by this attitude:

    Here is what I believe is going on behind the curtains: There is a great effort underway at the highest level of the ruling and intellectual classes to devalue the struggle to stay alive. Part of it is utilitarian ideology – the idea that society can define a life not worth living. Indeed, we have seen open advocacy in bioethics for a “duty to die.”

Pro-life news brief 7-18-13

by JivinJ, host of the blog, JivinJehoshaphat

  • I would suggest women stay far away from Jessy Jordan Holtzkamp if he ever gets out of prison:

    Holtzkamp, a second-year high school senior, told an officer he was too young to be a father and wanted the unborn child to be aborted or not be born alive, according to the complaint.

    When the officer told Holtzkamp his situation would be worsened if [Krystal] Alters-Meulemans suffered a miscarriage, he replied, “Why I wanted that to happen; I would love for that to happen,” according to the complaint.

    After he was advised he was being booked into jail on suspicion of attempted first-degree homicide of an unborn child, Holtzkamp “started making himself out to be a celebrity, stating, ‘We got a murderer up in here,'” and then started singing a song about killing the baby, the complaint states.

    When an officer asked him if he felt any remorse for trying to kill the fetus, he replied, “Hell naw,” according to the complaint.

Parents: IVF screening to detect abnormalities “saved us heartache”

After standard treatment at the US clinic, the couple had 13 IVF embryos to choose from. The doctors cultured the embryos for five days, took a few cells from each and sent them… for genetic screening. Tests showed that while most of the embryos looked healthy, only three had the right number of chromosomes…. Based […]
