Ladies for Life

Nov. 25 round-up

Posted on: November 25, 2008

In a recent papal address, Pope Benedict XVI talked about caring for sick children (including those in the womb), and the need for medical professionals to offer the best both in expertise and humanity.

The embrace of eugenics in the 1920s by doctors and the intelligentsia is still bearing (bad) fruit today. Wesley Smith takes a look at the murderous ‘practical ethics’ of Peter Singer and his ilk. Singer also gets spotlighted in this post by Anne Morse titled “My grandchildren versus field mice.”

Robert Lavars’ sister-in-law is trying to gain legal guardianship of his disabled wife, over his objections. The husband wants to keep his wife alive. His wife’s sister is willing to order that food and water be withheld. There is a hearing today. I am cocking my ear, trying to hear help riding to the rescue from the folks who claimed that spousal rights trumped everything else in the Terri Schiavo case (where Terri’s unfaithful husband was openly planning to marry a mistress by whom he’d had children, but was claiming rights as her husband anyway).

The Georgia (U.S.A.) Supreme Court has launched a campaign encouraging people to ‘Get Married, Stay Married’. The co-chairs of the Supreme Court Commission on Children, Marriage and Family Law explain why, and add qualifiers, here.

The U.S. Navy now offers paid paternity leave to married men.

Things might be starting to look up for babies with Down Syndrome in Scotland.

The GOP in Virginia has chosen its candidate for the 2009 governor’s race. Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonnell has a strong pro-life track record.

The Sunday Washington Post Magazine took a look at a pro-choice medical student trying to decide whether to become an abortion provider.

As always, feel free to add to the round-up in the comments.

I couldn’t remember if I’d seen this here or not, but I think it’s a good one to post: http://www.c-fam.org/publications/id.95/default.asp.

It goes something like this:
“On December 10th, radical pro-abortion groups will present petitions asking the UN General Assembly to make abortion a universally recognized human right.

“We have met the challenge and you can help.

“We have initiated a petition drive that calls for governments to interpret the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as protecting the unborn child from abortion. Along with a coalition of pro-life groups from around the world, we will present our petitions at a press conference at UN headquarters.

“So far, in only three weeks we have generated 46,417 names endorsing our petition; that is 15,000 a week! I now fully expect that we will present 100,000 names on December 10th, the 60th Anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

This is an excellent pro life video. The video is called Volition http://www.thedoorpost.com/hope/film/?film=420351f1aefa2b42b1772fe9d5cc044a . It connects slavery, the holocaust, and abortion. It does a very good job of it too. The abortion doctor in this video makes a very common statement made by pro- abortionists. He says the baby cannot feel anything. That the baby is a lump of cells. Studies have shown that the baby can feel pain at six weeks of gestation.

[…] Continuing the international theme, C-Fam (Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute) is collecting signatures on a pro-life, pro-family petition to be handed to the United Nations, in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. (via Cheryl) […]

Michelle, That is an extraordinary film. Wow. Thanks for recommending it.
