• A survey recently conducted by the Canada’s Society of Palliative Care Physicians (CSPCP) reveals that “Most palliative physicians want no role in assisted death.” BioEdge has more. Good! Now that assisted suicide has been forced upon them by the CA Supreme Court, we need doctors like this to stand up and take back medicine! • Designer Babies: Human cloning … Read More
An Olympic Champion’s Greatest Inspiration
Admittedly, I have not watched a lot of this year’s Winter Olympics. I’m more of a summer games kinda gal, myself. But an image image from the games this week captured my attention, as did the story behind it. On Monday Alex Bilodeau won gold in the freestyle skiing moguls competition — and he shared much of the spotlight with … Read More
A Tale of Two Births
Genetics is not the be all and end all in determining what the “quality” of someone’s life will be — both for themselves and for those around them. In this video Dr. Jérôme Lejeune tells an incredible – and true! – story that goes well with my article last week and perfectly illustrates the arrogance of deciding who is worthy … Read More
Eugenics in California: A Legacy of the Past?
Generally speaking, I’d say that the United States is not on most people’s radar when they think of eugenics throughout history. But we have a very sordid eugenics past here in America and I think it’s important to know where we’ve been in in this regard. If you’ve ever got an hour and a half to kill, check out this … Read More
You Wanna Say That to My Face?
This poster is brilliant and echoes something I’ve said on this blog many times: All abortion is equally abhorrent and offensive to humanity. It targets one segment of society, the unborn, and deems it worthy of life only at the behest of another segment. “Eugenic” abortion, however, goes one step further and takes a class of born citizens, the sick … Read More
NOVA Employment posted this picture on Facebook with the caption: “Accessible playgrounds are awesome. LIKE this if you think EVERY child deserves to have a little fun.” It’s beyond awesome. And, yes, every child has a right to pursue happiness…and have some fun! People who advocate for killing disabled unborn children say that they want to spare the child a … Read More
Perinatal Hospice: Yay or Nay?
Over at Catholic Lane, Mark Pickup writes about the importance of Christian perinatal hospice: There are expectant parents who face the terrible reality that their baby will be born with a terminal condition. They are usually told after a prenatal test and are given the choice of continuing the pregnancy or aborting their baby. Parents are often pressured to make … Read More
Teacher With Down Syndrome Breaks Stereotypes
Hat tip to reader Renee for emailing me this delightful story. As uplifting as it is, however, it is also a little infuriating to see this beautiful woman enriching the lives of so many young people and knowing that upwards of 90% of children prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome are never allowed make it out of the womb. It’s a … Read More
UK Court Mulls Forced Sterilization
Not cool. LONDON (AP) – A British judge ruled Tuesday that more evidence is needed before deciding whether to grant a mother’s wish to have her mentally disabled daughter sterilized — a case that is troubling medical ethicists. The 21-year-old woman, who has a significant learning disability and has been identified only as P, already has one child who is … Read More
Seeking a Girl, Couple Has Unborn Twin Boys Killed
Good grief! Last week ROSS DOUTHAT wrote a widely circulated column in the NY Times about the “unborn paradox.” How unborn life is so easily discarded on one hand and so desperately wanted on the other. Here we have a perfect example of this paradox in one couple. An Australian couple had the twin boys they were carrying killed because…well, … Read More
