  • DIDN'T ILLEGAL ABORTIONS KILL THOUSANDS OF WOMEN?
    illegal abortions How many deaths were we talking about when abortion was illegal In N A R A L we generally emphasized the drama of the individual case not the mass statistics but when we spoke of the latter it was always 5 000 to 10 000 deaths a year I confess that I knew the figures were totally false and I suppose the others did too if they stopped

  • New-born Babies Feel Pain Quicker and Longer
    pain killing drugs Ticky Wright of the Women and Children s Welfare Fund set up to promote research into pain relief of the unborn child last night welcomed the new research Mrs Wright said I call this the oops syndrome First we were told that infants did not feel pain then that the new born baby did not then that a foetus did not Each time it is looked at the boundaries are pushed further and further back Yet masses more research needs to done Maria Fitzgerald the professor of developmental neurobiology at the Thomas Lewis Pain Research Centre based at UCL said the work has shown the importance of adequate pain relief for infants and children Writing in the Medical Research Council s journal Prof Fitzgerald said Reports in clinical and psychological literature indicate early injury or trauma can have long term consequences on sensory or pain behaviour that extend into childhood or beyond Prof Fitzgerald said that because the spinal sensory nerve cells worked differently in babies even a simple skin wound at birth could lead to the area becoming hypersensitive to touch long after the wound had healed By studying these sensory nerve cells in infants the scientists discovered that their reflex to pain or harm is greater and more prolonged than that of adults The sensory nerve cells are also linked to larger areas of skin which means they feel pain over a greater area of their body While adults produce pain reflexes only when they encounter harmful stimulation new born children respond less selectively and produce the same reflex even to a light touch The scientists believe that this is because in babies the sensory nerve fibres that communicate non harmful touch known as A fibres end in a different part of the spinal cord

  • President Bush's Remarks to the 2003 March for Life
    and I know you re braving the cold And I admire your perseverance and I admire your devotion to the cause of life You all are gathered today on the National Mall which is not far from the monument to Thomas Jefferson who as you all know is author of our Declaration of Independence And the March for Life upholds the self evident truth of that Declaration that all are created equal given the unalienable rights of life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness And that principle of America needs defenders in every place and every generation In our time respect for the right to life calls us to defend the sick and the dying persons with disabilities and birth defects and all who are weak and vulnerable And this self evident truth calls us to value and to protect the lives of innocent children waiting to be born Applause You and I share a commitment to building a culture of life in America and we re making progress As the President I have signed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act opposed the destruction of embryos for stem cell research and refused to spend taxpayer money on international programs that promote abortion overseas Applause My administration is challenging the Oregon law that permits physician assisted suicide Applause We support abstinence education and crisis pregnancy programs and parental notification laws We offer compassionate alternatives to abortion by promoting adoption and extending state health care coverage for unborn children My hope is that the United States Congress will pass a bill this year banning partial birth abortion which I will sign Applause Partial birth abortion is an abhorrent procedure that offends human dignity I also urge the Congress to ban all human cloning We must not create life to destroy life

  • President Bush's Remarks in Opposition to Human Cloning
    and we must not forget that even the most noble ends do not justify any means Applause Science has set before us decisions of immense consequence We can pursue medical research with a clear sense of moral purpose or we can travel without an ethical compass into a world we could live to regret Science now presses forward the issue of human cloning How we answer the question of human cloning will place us on one path or the other Human cloning is the laboratory production of individuals who are genetically identical to another human being Cloning is achieved by putting the genetic material from a donor into a woman s egg which has had its nucleus removed As a result the new or cloned embryo is an identical copy of only the donor Human cloning has moved from science fiction into science One biotech company has already began producing embryonic human clones for research purposes Chinese scientists have derived stem cells from cloned embryos created by combining human DNA and rabbit eggs Others have announced plans to produce cloned children despite the fact that laboratory cloning of animals has lead to spontaneous abortions and terrible terrible abnormalities Human cloning is deeply troubling to me and to most Americans Life is a creation not a commodity Applause Our children are gifts to be loved and protected not products to be designed and manufactured Allowing cloning would be taking a significant step toward a society in which human beings are grown for spare body parts and children are engineered to custom specifications and that s not acceptable In the current debate over human cloning two terms are being used reproductive cloning and research cloning Reproductive cloning involves creating a cloned embryo and implanting it into a woman with the goal of creating a child Fortunately nearly every American agrees that this practice should be banned Research cloning on the other hand involves the creation of cloned human embryos which are then destroyed to derive stem cells I believe all human cloning is wrong and both forms of cloning ought to be banned for the following reasons First anything other than a total ban on human cloning would be unethical Research cloning would contradict the most fundamental principle of medical ethics that no human life should be exploited or extinguished for the benefit of another Applause Yet a law permitting research cloning while forbidding the birth of a cloned child would require the destruction of nascent human life Secondly anything other than a total ban on human cloning would be virtually impossible to enforce Cloned human embryos created for research would be widely available in laboratories and embryo farms Once cloned embryos were available implantation would take place Even the tightest regulations and strict policing would not prevent or detect the birth of cloned babies Third the benefits of research cloning are highly speculative Advocates of research cloning argue that stem cells obtained from cloned embryos would be injected into a genetically
