QUEBEC’S HEALTH MINISTER WANTS TO EUTHANIZE PATIENTS ALZHEIMER’S OR DEMENTIA

Québec pushed the boundaries by legalizing euthanasia, through Bill 52, before the criminal code was amended by defining lethal injection as medical treatment.

Dr. with Bottle of Poison Gaétan Barrette, Québec’s Health Minister, is now considering incrementally extending euthanasia to incompetent people with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, even though the law states that “medical-assistance-in-dying” is limited to competent people.

A Washington, D.C. law allowing doctors to prescribe their patients lethal drugs to commit suicide went into effect Saturday after U.S. Congress failed to block the measure, the Washington Times reports.Elderly gentleman

The district is the sixth area in the U.S. to legalize the deadly procedure, following Oregon, Washington state, Vermont, California and Colorado.

PRESIDENT TRUMP DEFUNDS UNFPA, WHICH PROMOTES ABORTION AND PUSHES POPULATION CONTROL IN CHINA

President Donald TrumpThe Trump administration announced plans Monday to stop funding the United Nations agency that has been caught promoting forced and coerced abortions and sterilizations in China.

For many years, links have been exposed between the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and China’s one-child policy. China’s oppressive population control policy, recently changed to a two-child limit, has led to forced and coerced abortions up through nine months of pregnancy, as well as forced and coerced sterilizations.

MICHIGAN BILL BECOMES LAW THAT WILL STOP ABORTION CLINICS FROM SELLING ABORTED BABY PARTS

Today Michigan Lieutenant Governor Brian Calley signed into law the Fetal Organ Trafficking Ban. Right to Life of Michigan applauds Lt. Gov. Calley and the Michigan Legislature for taking action to prevent abortion clinics profiteering from the sale of babies’ body parts.

Right to Life of Michigan President Barbara Listing said, “The undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood haggling over the broken bodies of developed babies rightly disgusted our nation. Trafficking in human body parts has no place in the state of Michigan.”

MEDICAL EXPERTS CONFIRMS ABORTION IS LINKED TO INCREASED RISK OF BREAST CANCER FOR WOMEN

For a political body, such as the Texas state legislature, cobbling together an informational booklet about the safety of abortion is a huge challenge. The authors are trying to balance the opinions of two opposing views wherein one side would prefer that no information is included that suggests that there are any risks to a woman who has an abortion.

So if the booklet tells the whole truth—that abortion is far from safe for women; that it surely increases a woman’s risk of breast cancer, for example–the “abortion is safe” crowd will go ballistic.

MAPS: HEALTH CLINICS NATIONWIDE COMPARED TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD CENTERS

This map and state chart depict the number of federally-funded health clinics that serve low-income, medically under-served populations in the United States in comparison to the number of Planned Parenthood centers. If Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, were to be defunded from receiving over $500 million in taxpayer funds per year, there already exist over 13,000 non-abortion providing Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) service sites and Rural Health Clinics (RHCs) that could receive this sum instead and continue to provide comprehensive primary and preventive healthcare.

Update: 9/30/2015: To view the locations and contact information for community health centers near you, please visit wwww.GetYourCare.org, a new interactive resource website launched by pro-life and pro-women organizations including the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

MICHIGAN APPEALS COURT RULES UNBORN CHILDREN DESERVE LEGAL PROTECTION

Fetal Baby & Court GavelWhat happens in Michigan when a pregnant woman is assaulted? Recently Michigan’s prenatal protection laws came in handy in making sure a criminal spent more time behind bars.

Samuel Demetrious Ambrose was convicted and sentenced to four years in prison for some pretty heinous actions:

Allegan County Circuit Court Judge Kevin W. Cronin sentenced Ambrose to a minimum of four years in prison for the May 2014 assault and witness intimidation. His sentence was lengthened because the judge counted the woman’s unborn child as a second victim.

ADULT STEM CELLS: THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN MEDICINE

Stem CellsStem cell therapies and their lifesaving results are arguably the best kept medical secret. Stem cells are currently being used in several thousand FDA-approved clinical trials, are treating tens of thousands of patients every year, and cumulatively over 1.5 million people have been treated to date. Yet these numbers, and the lifesaving results from stem cells for dozens of conditions, are unknown to most. Why the information blackout? Perhaps for lack of an adjective.

You see, those heartening numbers are all due to adult stem cells. Long ignored by the media and disparaged even by many in the scientific community, adult stem cells – those not dependent on the destruction of embryos – are the true gold standard for stem cells, especially when it comes to treating patients.

78% OF WOMEN CONSIDERING AN ABORTION CHOOSE LIFE WHEN THEY SEE AN ULTRASOUND

A survey conducted by the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates (NIFLA), a national legal network of prolife pregnancy centers, showed how powerful ultrasounds are in changing the minds of abortion-minded and abortion-vulnerable patients.

NIFLA stated in a press release:

Four-hundred and ten (410) of NIFLA’s medical membership (less than one-half) reported providing 75,318 ultrasound confirmations of pregnancy in 2013 on patients identified as either abortion-minded or abortion-vulnerable. Of these abortion at risk patients, 58,634 chose to carry to term, indicating that 78% of those mothers who saw an ultrasound image of their unborn child before deciding about abortion chose life.

DID YOU KNOW IT’S POSSIBLE TO REVERSE THE RU 486 ABORTION PILL?

The abortion lobby is once again proving that its main concern is not women and it’s not “choice” – it’s procuring as many abortions as possible.

In February, Priests for Life and the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) hosted a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., to discuss the RU-486 reversal protocol that has saved the lives of 161 babies.

GARDASIL: THE CONTROVERSY CONTINUES

Gardasil Vaccine and BoxYou have an 11 year old son or daughter. You go to the doctor for a physical or broken bone and he/she recommends a shot for the human papillomavirus or HPV. The name alone sounds horrifying, but then they tell you that this virus causes genital warts and [gasp] cervical cancer. You immediately want to surrender to whatever it is that the doctor is suggesting in order to protect your child. While HPV is the virus that causes these two medical problems, they leave out the fact that there have been many serious side effects, including death, linked to the vaccine. Here are some more interesting facts that I previously reported in Gardasil, Miracle or Deadly Virus?
