  • At the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, Alex Schadenberg says an Australian high court has decided that a man who helped his friend commit suicide cannot inherit from the will of his deceased friend. Until this ruling, Schadenberg notes:

    Only those convicted of murder or manslaughter had previously been barred from benefiting from an estate if named as executors or beneficiaries in their victim’s will. Hopefully this decision will further protect people who are at the lowest point in their life.

  • Big Blue Wave says a new study acknowledges that “widespread and increased availability of oral emergency contraception over the past 10-14 years has made little difference to rates of unintended pregnancy, abortion and repeat abortion amongst teenagers.” However, the conclusion from this is that teens must now try another form of birth control – the IUD.

  • Big Blue Wave describes how use of the NuvaRing contraceptive seriously impaired the health of US Olympic hopeful Megan Henry (pictured left), a skeleton skater, who spent ten days in the hospital suffering from life-threatening blood clots (pulmonary embolism). This sidelined her training and dashed her hopes of qualifying for the Olympics.
  • Clinic Quotes says a descendant of Margaret Sanger is continuing her legacy for “reproductive freedom”:

    Alexander Sanger, abortion advocate and descendent of Planned Parenthood founder and controversial figure Margaret Sanger, said the following:
    “Reproductive freedom is vital to humanity. It is even more vital than all the other freedoms that we cherish – freedom of religion, freedom of thought and speech, and the freedom to live our lives as we see fit. Humanity has these freedoms, or should have them, because they add to human happiness and make for a better world. So does reproductive freedom.”

    Really? Even more important than freedom of thought is the freedom to kill one’s children before birth? Remind me again… which side is extreme?

  • At New Wave Feminists, our latest blog addition, Destiny says that her son, for whom she chose life when she experienced an unplanned pregnancy as a teen, was “the best thing that ever happened” to her. Rather than ruining her life, he made her strong:

    Had I aborted him it would’ve been out of nothing but fear and panic. I would be living in bondage and regret to this day. Through bringing him into this world though I became a feminist, an activist, an advocate for women whose shoes I’ve traveled in. And because of that unplanned pregnancy I found out I was stronger than I ever knew I was. In my opinion, that’s what true feminism is all about.

  • Americans United for Life applauds a coalition of black pastors and leaders in Illinois who are urging the passage of laws to protect women from the same negligent treatment that resulted in the death of Tonya Reaves at a Chicago Planned Parenthood. Reaves died as a result of a botched abortion. Reaves’ family filed a wrongful death suit and PP paid $2M. The coalition is seeking passage of two bills that would require informed consent before an abortion and would also require abortion facilities to have the same standards as ambulatory surgical centers.

  • At Catholic Vote, Michael New examines reduced teen pregnancy rates, partly credited to a drop in sexual activity among teens. He also notes that since the early 1990s, the teen abortion rate has fallen faster than the teen pregnancy rate.

  • Big Blue Wave discusses a study on the effects of sex selection in Taiwan. The study seems to suggest that since the girls who manage to make it to birth are treated to a university education, there is no problem.

  • The Washington Times says stem cell research funding is turning toward adult (instead of embryonic) stem cells, even in traditionally liberal states:

    “Money talks,” said Gene Tarne, author of papers for the Charlotte Lozier Institute that find that the bulk of stem cell funding grants in California and Maryland are moving toward “ethical” research that doesn’t use human embryos.

    “The shift looks like a sea change from when state funding strongly favored research from embryonic stem cells over “adult” stem cells, which are taken from the placenta, umbilical cord and some mature tissues and do not kill human embryos.”…

    [A] Kansas stem cell research center that, by law, won’t use stem cells culled from human embryos also is taking off….

    The center… is “a visionary move” to “support science that can actually lead to a lot of new therapies and potentially change the face of medicine,” said Dr. Buddhadeb Dawn, director of the center, which is housed at the University of Kansas Medical Center….

    Excluding embryonic stem cell research is not an impediment, Dr. Dawn said. “Adult stem cells are the ones that have been shown to be effective for patient treatment,” he said.
