OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS, BUT WILL ANYONE TELL WOMEN IF ABORTION’S LINK?

Breast Cancer AwarenessI wanted to take a few minutes to address all that pink you’ve been seeing in stores, on athletes and on your TV screen. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and it has never hit home harder for me than this year.

“We did find cancer cells in your breast biopsy,” said the doctor matter-of-factly.

Cancer!!! I was stunned, shocked senseless with words I never thought I would hear!

HUMAN LIFE BEGINS AT FERTILIZATION – EVEN IF SCIENTISTS ARE CREATING PEOPLE IN A LAB

There continue to be reports of new attempts to create life, sometimes labeled “synthetic” or “artificial” because the entity is not created the old-fashioned way, i.e., by fertilization of an egg with a sperm. The most recent report involved combining two different types of stem cells to form an embryo-like structure that was labeled “artificial.” But is the manner in which a life begins the most important factor in how we regard that life? If a life is created using artificial or non-natural means, is that life really synthetic? Or rather, once a life is created, is that life like any other? The labels we put on things not only identify them but also give them value. So if we label a life as “artificial,” is this also a way to devalue that life?

MICHIGAN SAFE HAVEN LAW SAVES ITS 200TH NEWBORN BABY FROM INFANTICIDE

On Monday the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services announced that the 200th infant has been surrendered under Michigan’s Safe Delivery of Newborns Act since 2001.

Michigan’s Safe Delivery law allows mothers to legally and confidentially surrender unharmed newborns to emergency service providers up to 72 hours after birth. An emergency service provider is defined as an on-duty employee of a fire department, hospital or police station.

THE BIOETHICS PERIL

Bioethic PerilIf you want to see what is likely to go awry in medical ethics and public healthcare policy, pay attention to the advocacy of bioethicists—at least of those who don’t identify themselves as “conservative” or “Catholic.” In their many journal articles and presentations at academic symposia, they unabashedly advocate for discarding the sanctity- and equality-of-life ethic as our moral cornerstone. Instead, most favor invidious and systemic medical discrimination predicated on a patient’s “quality of life,” which would endow the young, healthy, and able-bodied with the highest moral value—and, hence, with the greatest claim to medical resources.

LIFE AND DEATH DECISIONS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Right to Life of Michigan Public Affairs Associate Genevieve Marnon frequently The Tank Familyworks with end-of-life situations. She intimately knows the issues of euthanasia, doctor-prescribed suicide, and passive euthanasia. She and our Lansing office deals with many calls from people facing end-of-life care conflicts.

In September Genevieve’s father, Bob Tank, went to the emergency room complaining of shoulder pain. Bob suffered from severe emphysema and his family knew he likely only had a few months or years to live. His acute pain, however, was a dangerous pulmonary embolism requiring an immediate fight to stay alive.

NEW YORK’S HIGHEST COURT FINDS THAT “AID-IN-DYING-IS ASSISTED SUICIDE AND THERE IS NO RIGHT TO ASSISTED SUICIDE

The Euthanasia Prevention Coalition commends the New York Court of Appeals for the unanimous ruling the state’s highest court made Thursday in Myers v. Schneiderman. The court found that aid-in-dying is assisted suicide and that there is no right to assisted suicide in New York.

This is not the first time that a State court has decided that aid-in-dying is assisted suicide while upholding a State assisted suicide law.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP ISSUES PRO-LIFE STATEMENT CELEBRATING PEOPLE WITH DOWN SYNDROME

President Donald TrumpWhile some nations are doing their level best to destroy as many people with Down Syndrome in abortions, President Donald Trump has issued a statement for Down Syndrome awareness month celebrating the lives of those persons with the disability.

As LifeNews has reported, Iceland claims to have aborted almost 100% of babies with Down Syndrome. Just a handful of children with Down syndrome have been born in Iceland in the past decade. Two are born each year, on average, but the rest are killed in the womb. For most of the children who were born, their mothers decided not to have prenatal screening tests.

ARE WE BECOMING LESS INDIGNANT ABOUT THE KILLING OF 59 MILLION BABIES IN ABORTIONS?

Ellie Saul is a gifted writer, some of whose postings at bound4life.org she has happily allowed us to reprint.

I find her a delight for many reasons but first and foremost because her writings are bathed in a passionate concern for the unborn, the outpouring of a gentle spirit.

Ultrasound PictureIf you’ve been in this Movement as long as people like me have, there is always the danger that at some level you lose your edge of moral indignation. It wouldn’t be accurate to say you become inured to the suffering of unborn children and the aftershocks so many women experience, or that you tacitly “accept” that abortion will be legal for a long, long time.

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.

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.
