Abortion means death to a child

For some reason it had never entered my mind that with an abortion she would have to die. I had never wanted my baby to die; I only wanted to get rid of my “problem.” But it was too late to turn back now. There was no way to save her. So instead I talked to her. I tried to comfort her. I tried to ease her pain. I told her I didn’t want to do this to her, but it was too late to stop it. I didn’t want her to die. I begged her not to die. I told her I was sorry, to forgive me, that I was wrong, that I didn’t want to kill her.

For two hours I could feel her struggling inside me. But then, as suddenly as it began, she stopped. Even today, I remember her very last kick on my left side. She had no strength left. She gave up and died. Despite my grief and guilt, I was relieved that her pain was finally over. But I was never the same again. The abortion killed not only my daughter; it killed a part of me.

Bishop Richard Malone has condemned the recent same sex marriage laws highlighting the negative consequences of such arrangements

"Same-sex marriage is a dangerous sociological experiment that I believe will have negative consequences for society as a whole," said Bishop Richard Malone.

"Children will be taught in schools that same-sex marriage and traditional marriage are simply different expressions of the same thing, and that the logical and consistent understanding that marriage and reproduction are intrinsically linked is no longer valid," he continued. "These are profound changes that will reverberate throughout society with tragic consequences."

Soon after Maine Gov. John Baldacci approved the state's same-sex "marriage" legislation May 6, the Portland diocese condemned the law and announced that it would support a voter's referendum to overturn it.

The California-based Empowering Spirits Foundation, a homosexualist group, is seeking to strip the Catholic Diocese of Portland of its tax-exempt status, after the diocese announced it would gather support for a voter's referendum on the new same-sex "marriage" law.

Same sex marriage generates confusion HB436

Government regulates marriage for the benefit of society; to ensure the best possible emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual outcome for the potential posterity of the marital union. It doesn't matter that that union may be sterile or that it may end up in divorce. Just because the human execution is malfunctioning (sterility) or flawed (divorce) or even broken (abuse), does not make the divine institution flawed. Marriage is what it is and those who pretend otherwise are endangering not only themselves by exposing their tender feelings to more disappointment (marriage appropriation will not yield the acceptance they so yearn for), but our country's innocent future as well - the children.

Saline abortion procedure

The first thing he did was withdraw 60 cc’s of amniotic fluid. At that point I started to feel afraid for my baby. I could feel her thrashing about, scared by this intrusion. I wanted to scream out, “Please, stop. Don’t do this to me!” But I just couldn’t get it out. I was petrified with fear.

After the fluid was withdrawn, he injected 200 cc’s of the saline solution–half a pint of concentrated salt solution. From then on, it was terrible. My baby began thrashing about–it was like a regular boxing match in there. She was in pain. The saline was burning her skin, her eyes, her throat. It was choking her, making her sick. She was in agony, trying to escape. She was scared and confused at how her wonderful little home had suddenly been turned into a death trap.

Abortion and IVF, a contradiction in human life

Childless couples undergoing IVF have been left devastated after an incubator failed at a Deakin clinic this week, destroying at least five embryos.

The Sydney IVF clinic in Canberra told couples that embryos had died after an apparent malfunction.

One patient wrote that she was gutted by the loss of nearly all her embryos and spent several hours in tears after hearing the news.


If human embryos are just clumps of tissue as abortion supporters claim, then why are parents getting upset about the loss of their embryos? Aren't they just clumps of tissue?

If human embryos are really human and alive, then why does society allow the slaughter of these children to occur?

Victim of abortion gives testimony

The third lie in my “counseling” was a lie of omission. He never told me any of the risks involved. Only later did I find out that if he had hit a vein, the saline solution could have made me violently ill or caused any number of other complications, including death. He told me none of this. Instead he made it sound like a simple and relatively painless procedure.

I was so naive. I trusted him. After all, he was a doctor. A respected and educated man. And like everyone else, I had always heard that legal abortion was “safe and easy.” It wasn’t until he had me on the table that I began to question these illusions. It wasn’t until he pulled out an enormous syringe that I became scared. The needle alone was four inches long. Suddenly I realized that this was not going to be as easy as he had implied.

Physicians in Montana could be facing "kill-on-demand" orders from patients who want to commit suicide

Physicians could be ordered to help patients commit suicide if a district court judge's opinion pending before the state Supreme Court is affirmed.

Robert Baxter filed the lawsuit along with four physicians in the state's district court system. They were aided in the case by the assisted suicide advocacy group Compassion & Choices, formerly known as the Hemlock Society.

Baxter told the organization's magazine that society already provides death when animals are suffering. "I just feel if we can do it for animals," Baxter said, "we can do it for human beings."

We kill animals when they are suffering because they are not worth the effort in providing palliative care. Humans have an enormous value, this is why we should never kill them but provide palliative care when they suffer.

M. Casey Mattox, a lawyer with the CLS said the decision to create a constitutional right to 'obtain assistance from a medical care provider in the form of obtaining a prescription for lethal drugs' threatens the rights of healthcare professionals. Medical professionals should not be coerced to violate the Hippocratic Oath in order to practice.

Adult stem cells used to treat heart attack

A small, privately held Covington laboratory is breaking new ground in treating heart disease and limb ischemia with adult stem cells.

In late March, TCA medical director Dr. Gabriel Lasala presented the preliminary findings. The trial included 10 patients and all demonstrated significant recovery.

TCA's successes include Penny Kibideaux, who was scheduled for a leg amputation when her physicians sent her to Lasala. Kibideaux received a stem cell infusion in November and a few weeks later was able to walk through malls to do her Christmas shopping.

Abortion Testimony

The second lie [the abortionist told me] came during my “counseling session,” when I asked, “What are you going to do to me if I have this abortion?” All he did was look at my stomach and say, “I’m going to take a little fluid out, put a little fluid in, you’ll have severe cramps and expel the fetus.” “Is that all?” I asked. “That’s it.” “O.K.,” I said. It was only later, after the abortion had begun, that I was to learn that what he described as “cramps” was actually the labor process. These “severe cramps” were not just going to make my pregnancy magically disappear. Instead, I was going to go through all the motions of normal childbirth–water breaking, labor pains, etc. The only difference was that the baby I would deliver would be dead.

After telling me I had to have the abortion within the next 24-hours, Dr. F- scheduled me for a saline abortion in the hospital that same afternoon. Ironically, a little while after my abortion a nurse who worked at the hospital told me that Fong always scheduled his abortions for the same day that the patient contacted him. At one time he had admitted patients to the hospital the night before the surgery so that they could be observed and their food intake limited. But when some of his patients had changed their minds during the night, sometimes after questioning nurses about what actually would happen, he began to insist on doing the abortions immediately. Too many patients, and profits, were slipping out the front door.

Controversial book "Where do I Really Come From?" indoctrinates children into normalizing lesbian relationships

The controversial children's book, Where do I Really Come From?, teaches children about lesbian mothers getting pregnant using sperm donors is being given to children as young as two.

The book's publisher "Learn to Include" markets the book as suitable for two-year-olds.

One chapter reads.

"Sometimes, a woman really wants to have a baby but she doesn't want to have intercourse with a man."

"Some women want to bring up a baby by themselves, or with another woman, so the baby gets two mums."

This type of book is an obvious attempt to indoctrinate children into the false belief that same sex sexual relationships are acceptable. Same sex attraction is a disorder and people who suffer from it need help in living a chaste lifestyle. Those who do enter into same sex sexual relationships are abusing their sexual abilities. Books like this one are an attempt to make these relationships acceptable in our society.

The book also asserts that "what a woman wants" is more important than a child having both a mother and father. It deliberately rejects a child's right to have a mother and father in favour of selfish adult desires.
