Why the baby kidnapper shouldn’t die



An obstetrician in the Shaanxi province of China was sentenced to death for child trafficking this week. The 55 year old woman repeatedly told her patients that their new born infant was either deformed or sick. She persuaded the new parents to give up their children for adoption.

Franchising Abortion and Sterilization



Think of franchises, and McDonald’s or Starbucks springs to mind. But how about franchising clinics that do abortions and sterilizations? The population control movement has thought of this too. In the developing world, so-called “reproductive health clinics” are spreading like fast food chains in America through a network of organizations that want abortion and birth control drugs as readily available as a slurpee at 7 Eleven. With their slick marketing and eye-catching logos, these population …

Cutting Foreign Aid to Save Lives



Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as UNICEF and CARE Australia are up in arms over the new Australian Prime Minister’s plan to reduce foreign aid by $4.5 billion. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, they claim that such cuts will come at “expense of children’s lives."[1] Worse yet, they will compromise the commitments under the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

Obama Wants Us to Pay for Abortion-Causing Devices, Too!



Obamacare’s so-called “contraceptive mandate” has been much in the news. But much of what the administration calls “contraception” is actually abortion. Take the copper IUD, for example. It is advertised as a contraceptive device, but even the New York Times, in a front page story about Plan B, admits that it causes early-term abortions. How? By preventing the implantation of a developing embryo in the uterus. As the flagship paper of the liberal media writes, …

The Mirena IUD is Becoming More Popular – and the Lawsuits are Piling Up



You know a contraceptive drug or device is in trouble when the lawsuits begin to multiply. A growing number of American women are turning to intrauterine devices (IUDs), reports Lawrence Finer of the Guttmacher Institute. Of all American women using birth control, some 7.5 percent had IUDs implanted by 2009. These numbers were double what they had been a few short years before. As befits an employee of a population control organization, Finer is pleased …
