  • South Africans Oppose Taxpayer-Funded Abortions
    He said Abortion is paid for by the South African taxpayer Every time a South African citizen buys for a loaf of bread some of that money goes toward the killing of children In effect that means that everyone is contributing to the murder There are no fence sitters with abortion South Africans need to start actively opposing abortion By virtue of paying taxes without actively taking a stand against abortion we are all implicated in this atrocity The African Christian Democratic Party does not regard abortion as a moral issue but as murder In the United States public opinion is turning against abortion as they see the consequences of it in their society Laws are being proposed that would ensure that the woman sees her child on an ultrasound scan before she chooses to go ahead with an abortion He said that the ACDP will continue to oppose abortion in any way it can The reality is that children are dying painful and traumatic deaths everyday Like newborns children in the womb are very sensitive to pain Minister Louis said The time may come when Christians will have to consider withholding their taxes by paying their taxes into a

  • South Africa's new pro-abortion law
    a barge pole It goes against their culture If my boss Nelson Mandela says we have to do abortions then we will do them But it s a hot potato It s just not popular The Termination of Pregnancy Act passed by parliament in October last year is one of the most sensitive pieces of legislation to be introduced by the African National Congress since it took office in May 1994 It allows for abortion on demand in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy even for minors Since it became law the health service has struggled to cope Nearly 13 000 abortions were performed at state hospitals in the first six months of the law Almost half were undertaken in Johannesburg s hospitals and they have met only half the demand Adding to the pressure women from neighbouring countries where abortion is either not easily available or illegal are pouring south to take advantage of South Africa s free facility But the law s extreme provisions anger many Afrikaners and Africans whose cultures are united in their support for life Christian and Muslim lobbies have joined forces to oppose it There is even dissent within the ANC many of whose

  • UK Doctors Who Performed Cleft Palate Late-Term Abortions Let Off
    curate Rev Joanna Jepson pursued the matter through the courts after police initially refused to lay charges Jepson who suffered a similar jaw deformity at birth charged that the cleft lip and palate excuse was a frivolous reason for killing children already well past the 24 week cut off point for legal abortions in Britain Abortion of a baby on the grounds that the child has a cleft palate is lethal discrimination against disabled people as is any abortion on the grounds of disability National Director for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children SPUC John Smeaton said We are taking legal advice on this matter On the face of it the appropriate legislation under which to take action would be the Human Rights Act and we are exploring this further We are alarmed by the reasons given by the Crown Prosecution Service but with the eugenic mentality of medicine in the UK it is perhaps not surprising that two doctors would determine that the best destiny for a seven month baby with a cleft palate is to be killed said ProLife Alliance spokeswoman Julia Millington to the BBC news The police have expressed concern regarding the impact on

  • Abortion and the UK
    Procedures specifically prohibited on other species by the 1986 Animal Procedures Act are permitted on humans by the 1990 Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 3 In touchy feely Britain we are required to display emotions to exhibit often counterfeit compassion and embrace politically correct causes If you are a fox or hate smoking you are in luck if you are an unborn child too bad Question the legislation which permits a handicapped baby to be killed at birth and you will be reviled as a bigot or misogynist The Prime Minister Mr Tony Blair along with every other elected member of the British Cabinet voted for the eugenics provision Donning the clothes of Bill Clinton Blair outlined the new doctrine in the 1997 General Election as personally opposed to abortion but in favour of public provision Imagine the derision if I claimed to personally oppose the Blair Government s sale of arms to Indonesia and then voted for it as a matter of public policy This ambivalence mirrors the mixed sentiments of mixed up middle England Pro lifers need to understand this It may prove a better beginning than it first appears In this convoluted world of invented values we have permitted the popular belief to emerge that choices can be made without consequences that rights outweigh obligations that the strong can trample on the weak Prolife questions have been side lined as a single issue instead of the defining issue of our times In this respect those who drafted the United Nations Declaration had a better sense of priorities than the people of the nineties Measured against the promises of the 1967 legislators many of today s realities stand as a stark rebuke Chief among their claims was that legalised abortion would liberate women Studies such as that undertaken by the Committee of Inquiry chaired by the British peer Lord Rawlinson the former Solicitor General point instead to a generation of women physically and psychologically hurt by abortion 4 Men have increasingly used abortion as a way to exploit women and to evade their own responsibilities The claim was also made that children would all be wanted abortion would reduce the incidence of abuse Today 46 000 British children are on child protection registers Might it not be that abuse permitted in the womb was always likely to increase the incidence of abuse after birth While the abortion clinics replaced the orphanages adoption of babies became far more difficult and expensive fertility treatments which don t work for four out of five couples became the resort of the desperate Legal abortion has chaned our attitudes to our doctors our partners our children and to the sanctity of human life It has also bred an ugly intolerance journalists sacked for insufficiently compliant copy doctores nurses and medical staff sacked or refused promotion for refusing to collaborate a scientist sacked for refusing to monitor emissions from an incinerator burning the bodies of aborted foetuses pro life students denied free speech the
