Ladies for Life

Nov. 26 round-up

Posted on: November 26, 2008

Of course, abortion isn’t just a problem in the United States, or just in Western cultures. A poet from India pleads for the unborn babies of his country.

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)

Speaking of petitions, this Fight FOCA petition now has over 277,000 signatures. FAQs on FOCA.

What the other side is up to: Planned Parenthood of Indiana is encouraging people to buy gift certificates from them, to give as gifts for Christmas. The certificates can be redeemed for any of Planned Parenthood’s ‘services’, including abortion. (Just when you think they can’t sink any lower…)

Some good news: In an update from a story link from yesterday, Robert Lavars’ sister-in-law has withdrawn her petition to become the guardian of his disabled wife. The sister-in-law was considering killing her sister by starvation and water deprivation if she gained custody. (I cannot get used to the idea that it has become legal to refuse to feed someone, or give them water, simply because they are disabled. In my wildest nightmares I couldn’t have imagined this. At least, in this case, the husband isn’t having any of that option.)

Matt Bowman counters mainstream media misinformation on laws to protect pro-life health care workers from being pressured to participate in activities that violate their conscience.

The latest Life Digest at Baptist Press has good news (adult stem cells leave embryonic ones in the dust, again) and bad news (a judge has blocked the enforcement of a law in Oklahoma that requires ultrasounds be performed before an abortion), and more good news (earlier this month, Uruguay’s President Tabare Vazquez, a physician, vetoed a bill that would have legalized abortion in that country). According to the Background Notes on Uruguay at the United States Department of State website, Vazquez (full name Tabaré Ramón Vázquez Rosas) belongs to the Frente Amplio party, which is a coalition of left-of-center factions.

abortion is one of the worst things in the world.A couple of weeks ago in my current events class we watched the silent scream,I was holding onto a Bible and I was about to cr because it was so sad watching that baby tryng to get away from the instrument that the doctor was using.Last week we watched a music video and it showed parts of a babies that had been aborted and my friends and I felt so helpless.
Thier is a scriptur in the Bible I believe its in jeremiah and it says do not shed innocent blood in this place.
