  • In Canada, a motion by the Liberal party to include abortion funding in Canada’s G8 initiative to improve the health of women and children in the developing world was defeated:

    The Liberal motion did not specifically mention the word “abortion” but its intent was understood. Indeed, Ignatieff at one point during debate railed against “botched procedures” in the backstreets of the developing world….

  • A Seattle mother is upset with her daughter’s in-school clinic after the clinic helped her daughter get an abortion during a school day without her knowledge:
  • When she signed a consent form, “Jill” figured it meant her 15-year-old could go to the Ballard Teen Health Center located inside the high school for an earache, a sports physical, even birth control, but not for help terminating a pregnancy.


    “She took a pregnancy test at school at the teen health center,” she said. “Nowhere in this paperwork does it mention abortion or facilitating abortion.”
    Jill says her daughter, a pro-life advocate, was given a pass, put in a taxi and sent off to have an abortion during school hours, all without her family knowing.
    “We had no idea this was being facilitated on campus,” said Jill. “They just told her that if she concealed it from her family, that it would be free of charge and no financial responsibility.

  • In the UK, a teenage girl’s abortion apparently caused a rift between the families of the girl and her boyfriend which ended in the boyfriend’s murder.
  • Dan Sotelo needs to learn how to make an argument. The political science major at the University of AZ doesn’t like a graphic display of abortion images on his campus and the university paper has published his opinion piece. Unfortunately, instead of making an argument against the display, Sotelo’s editorial is filled with unsupported assertions like his position that the comparison between abortion and other disturbing violations of human rights “lacks validity” and “just as Howard Stern is dismissed for his shock-jock antics, so too must this display be dismissed” and “the views of the organizers aren’t invalid, but their ends-justify-the-means approach is unnaceptable [sic].”
