Dutch Abortion Ship Detained by Guatemalan Military



The Guatemalan military has taken the so-called “ship of death” into custody after it docked in Port Quetzal, a city approximately two hours south of the nation’s capital.

PRI Takes Down Abortion-Promoting Blog



For some years now, the abortion movement has been setting up so-called “safe abortion hotlines” in Latin American countries, and secretly (and illegally) advertising them on the internet.

Global Monitor: European Court Favors International Abortion



The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that the Portuguese government broke the law in preventing the Dutch abortion boat from landing when it attempted to enter Portuguese territory in 2004.

In 2004, the …

Misoprostol and the Hidden Pro-Life Crisis



The pro-abortion movement is moving stealthily to open another front in the abortion wars. Its name is misoprostol.
