Pregnant Couples Defend Aborting Babies With Down Syndrome: “Loving Kids Like That is a Waste”

Aug 27, 2015 by

By Sarah Terzo, Life News: By now, most pro-lifers have heard the cruel and elitist comments made by Richard Dawkins about aborting Down syndrome babies. Dawkins claims that the “ethical” choice is to abort all babies with Down syndrome, even though these children often lead happy lives and enrich their families and society. An NBC article by Kimbery Hayes Taylor describes the results of 3 studies conducted by Boston Children’s Hospital. In the first study, out of 2,044 parents or guardians surveyed, 79% reported their outlook on life was “more positive” because of their child with Down syndrome. A second study found that among siblings of children with Down syndrome, 97% expressed feelings of pride for their brother or sister and 88% were convinced that they were better people because of their sibling. This study polled siblings over the age of 12. Read here...

Planned Parenthood Harvested Intact Brain From Baby Whose Heart Was Still Beating

Aug 20, 2015 by

By Samuel Smith, Christian Post: The Center for Medical Progress’ seventh video highlighting the aborted baby parts compensation practices of Planned Parenthood alleges that the abortion giant and its former partnering company StemExpress have harvested an intact brain from a gestated fetus whose heart was still beating. The new video, which was released Wednesday morning, shows an interview with Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress fetal tissue procurement technician, who recounted the time she was asked to harvest the brain from an almost fully gestated aborted baby at a Planned Parenthood clinic in California. O’Donnell recalled that she was in a Planned Parenthood clinic one day when a doctor had just finished with an abortion and took the aborted baby into a pathology lab. Moments later, a senior StemExpress technician named Jessica called Holly to come into the room so that she could show her how to procure an intact brain. Read here...

Number of single women resorting to IVF triples in a decade as

Aug 15, 2015 by

By Madlen Davies, Mailonline: Soaring numbers of single women are turning to IVF to try and conceive, according to new figures. The number of single women undergoing the fertility treatment has more than tripled in less than a decade with a 20 per cent rise in just one year. Some experts put the rise down to independent career women delaying having a family – and choosing to go it alone before it is too late. But others said the increase could also be down to men refusing to get married and have children for fear of expensive divorces. An increased acceptance of both single-parent families and IVF in general is also thought to have played a part. Some 952 single mothers-to-be registered at IVF clinics in 2013 according to the latest data to be released. It marks a 226 per cent increase since 2006 and – a 22 per cent hike in just one year – according to the latest figures from the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. Statistics are not yet available for 2014, but early figures suggest the number of women having IVF will have tipped over 1,000 for the first time in history. Read...

MassResistance takes to the streets for Dr. Church!

Aug 5, 2015 by

Signs and flyers at busy entrance to hospital in Boston. On Thursday afternoon, July 30, MassResistance took the fight for medical truth into the streets. A group of protesters gathered during lunchtime outside of one of the busy entrances to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in downtown Boston. Our activists carried signs and distributed information to doctors, staff members, patients, and even passing cars about the embattled Dr. Paul Church. Dr. Church, a well-respected urologist, was recently expelled from the medical staff of BIDMC, a major Harvard-affiliated hospital, because he voiced concerns to his colleagues about the unhealthy nature of homosexual behavior and objected to the hospital’s aggressive promotion of “gay pride” activities. July 30 was the second day of Dr. Church’s appeal hearing at the hospital. Most people were completely unaware of the situation. Many were shocked when they learned about it. Our flyers were taken by so many people that we ran out and had to quickly get more printed!  Read the flyer here. Read here...

The Dark Side of Third-Party Reproduction

Aug 3, 2015 by

By Kathleen Sloan, Public Discourse: Third-party reproduction is pitched as a victory for all, a vehicle for creating beautiful families. But the process requires enticing marginalized women to undergo harmful procedures. Moreover, children are created, with no regard for the rights that other children enjoy, to satisfy the desires of wealthy adults. I’m sure you’ve seen them in the media: attractive, well-off, smiling parents holding adorable infants created by third-party reproduction and assisted reproductive technologies (ART). Of course, the narrative goes, this development is a win-win for all. Who could object to children being created for those who through either infertility or biological sex are unable to reproduce? But this picture hides the highly profitable fertility industry’s dirty secrets. It ignores what is required to create these children: exploitation, health endangerment, and the commodification of human life. An honest look at the facts and circumstances surrounding third-party reproduction and ART should give any thinking person pause. The Exploitative Consequences of Egg Harvesting and Surrogacy Third-party reproduction first of all requires the procurement of gametes, a man’s sperm and a woman’s egg. The egg is artificially inseminated, and a woman must gestate and give birth to the resulting embryo or embryos. What, in terms of chemicals and technology, is involved in obtaining the necessary human gametes? Here, biology is not exactly fair. While sperm is obtainable through the straightforward process of male ejaculation, it’s a radically different situation to obtain eggs. The egg provider must undergo weeks of painful self-injections of carcinogenic synthetic hormones and other drugs followed by surgery for egg retrieval. Read here...
