EACH BABY WITH DOWN SYNDROME SHOULD BE TREATED AS A PRINCE OR PRINCESS

It was an experience unlike any I had had before in my six years roaming the corridors of the Pennsylvania Capitol, pleading on behalf of preborn babies and their mothers.

A young man named John was accompanying our group of advocates as we visited the offices of state representatives. John is a delightful 30-year-old man who works hard but also likes to have fun. He also happens to have Down syndrome.

John had personally signed postcards to present to the lawmakers urging them to support House Bill 2050, which would ban the abortion of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome. For John, the cause is not political, but highly personal.

EUTHANASIA LOBBY PLANS TO OPEN EUTHANASIA CLINIC IN TORONTO

The euthanasia lobby is planning to open a euthanasia clinic in Toronto and they have asked the Ministry of Health to provide the funding.

In an article by published in the Globe and Mail, Kelly Grant writes

“Their vision is to rent a cozy space in Toronto, decorate it like a home, then open it to qualifying patients who are seeking a place to die.”

Shanaaz Gokool the chief executive officer of the advocacy group Dying With Dignity Canada, and a member of MAIDHouse’s startup board of directors, states

“It’s a unique project. It’s the only one of its kind in the country. …

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PATIENT SAYS, ‘DOC, HELP ME DIE’

My 54-year-old patient was alone in the intensive care unit, with no family or friends in his life. He slumped in his bed, gasping, staring up at me. Admitted with lung fibrosis and pneumonia, he had scars and infection aggressively replacing his airways, despite our best treatments.

As a newly minted doctor years ago, my mind was usually occupied with beeps and buzzers providing me technical information to help calculate choices about patients' care. Having developed gray hair over many years at the bedside, my first priority is now more straightforward: to hear the voices of the vulnerable people looking up at me from their bed. That is what I try to do as a physician, including, of course, what they tell me in the silences.

THE POSITIVE RIPPLE EFFECTS OF “ROLLING BACK” ROE V. WADE

Since this is the last post of the day, let me get right to it.

The Abortion Industrial Complex has known for years and years that no matter how many misrepresented polls they trot out, support for abortion is discrete, finite, and subject to erosion. As we have documented countless dozens of times, a majority of the American people consistently opposes the reasons 90+% of all abortions are performed. That’s why abortion advocates wrap abortion is gauzy rhetoric about “reproductive rights/reproductive health.”

NURSES NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ABORTION PILL REVERSAL

Should anyone—let alone unelected government regulators—have the right to suppress education that could save a life?Sonogram

That’s the question Heartbeat International posed in a petition released Thursday morning, pushing back on a California Board of Registered Nursing proposal that would silence any teaching on Abortion Pill Reversal (APR).

An off-label use of progesterone employed since the 1950s to stave off miscarriage, more than 400 mothers say they have used APR to successfully rescue their babies after having started a chemical abortion—better known as RU-486 or “medication abortion.”

HAVE ABORTION PILL REVERSAL (APR), WILL TRAVEL

It was near midnight one Friday evening in March when Kaitlyn* made a desperate phone call. She had taken the first pill of the two-pill regimen for a chemical abortion, and was looking for a way to undo it.

At just eight weeks into her pregnancy, Kaitlyn had already gone through a range of emotions. Though she was happy about her pregnancy, she was scared. The timing didn’t seem right, and her hopes for her future seemed to be falling apart.

Discouraged, she eventually set up an appointment for an abortion. She missed it, but then chose to reschedule. The second time, she went to her appointment and took the abortion pill.

A POWERFUL NEW WAY TO REDIRECT MILLENNIAL WOMEN AWAY FROM PLANNED PARENTHOOD

As recently as the year 2010, less than 10 years ago, Planned Parenthood had an enormous marketing advantage over pro-life Pregnancy Help Centers.

At that time, the only way a Pregnancy Help Center could get the word out about its services to a significant number of women aged 18 to 29 years old, the age group that accounts for 70% of all abortions in the U.S., was to use traditional mass market media channels like TV, radio, billboards, and print (magazines and newspapers).

For Pregnancy Help Centers on a limited budget, which compared to Planned Parenthood’s massive marketing budget would basically mean all Pregnancy Help Centers, mass media was, and still is, cost-prohibitive.

STEM CELL HUCKSTERS BACK FOR MORE CASH

The CIRM was to be the great hope for cures for millions of Americans suffering from incurable diseases. The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine was created by 59 percent of California voters in 2004 and given $3 billion in tax dollars to pursue cures by killing human embryos and taking their embryonic stem cells.

Now, 16 years later, CIRM is running out of cash and needs to come back to California voters and ask for more funding. Will voters give it to them?

The first question all people should ask is this: what price should society put on purposefully taking one human life to help another? For people who value every human life, the answer is each life is invaluable, and that such actions erode the fundamental nature of rights. It also subtly subverts the fundamental role of medicine in saving lives.

COMING SOON? NON-VOLUNTARY EUTHANASIA/ORGAN HARVESTING?

It is legal in the Netherlands for doctors and psychiatrists to lethally inject the sick, disabled, elderly, and mentally ill who ask to die. It is not legal for them to kill patients who have not repeatedly asked to die.

But that happens anyway, and not rarely.

Various studies come up with different numbers, but it seems safe to say that hundreds of patients–431 in 2015–are killed each year non-voluntarily, which in Dutch euthanasia-speak is called ”termination without request or consent.”

Technically, that’s murder under Dutch law, but so what?

AMAZING PROFESSOR SHOWS SUPPORT FOR WOMEN, MOTHERS ON COLLEGE CAMPUS

Jarquita Arrington is an MBA student at Savannah State University and she is also, like many women on campus, a mother. She scheduled her classes for times when she knew her husband would be home, but she worried when her husband had to work late on what was to be her first day of class. With no other option for someone to care for the children, Arrington decided to email her professor, who ended up going above and beyond to help.

“Ohh, it’s the first day of class. I can’t miss class,” said Arrington in a video for Stitch. “So I immediately reached out to Dr. Setliff via email.”

CHEMICAL ABORTIONS: THE PRO-ABORTION PLAN IF ABORTIONS BECOME SUBSTANTIALLY HARDER TO OBTAIN – PART ONE

Ever wonder why the industry developed the “abortion pill”? Was it just to have a new novel product to attract new customers? While that was part of it, it has become clear that abortion advocates see in mifepristone and misoprostol—the two drugs that make up the chemical abortion technique—not just a new non-surgical abortion method, but a way to maintain the availability of abortion if most abortion clinics ever close or if abortion becomes illegal or substantially harder to obtain.

And they’ve been taking steps, laying the groundwork for years to prepare for what they see as a realistic possibility.

How we got here [...]
