And Then There Was This , September 2023

The promotion of abortion in Northern Ireland’s schools In 1979, the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) as a sort of ‘international bill of rights for women,’ to “ensure the elimination of all acts of discrimination against women.” The United Kingdom’s Conservative government has imposed legislation on Northern Ireland which the London-based [...]

Josie Luetke: Interim writer, Josie Luetke, Talk Turkey There’s a quotation I really like from author and left-wing activist Andrew Boyd: “You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors.” When you use abortion victim photography in activism, as I have for almost a decade now, [...]

Deaths that depart from the Covid narrative

John Carpay: When statisticians speak of “excess” deaths, they speak of a higher-than-expected death rate. The number of “expected” deaths (for a country or province, for one year or some other time period) is based on the population’s age, race, employment, education, income, marriage rates, birth rates, and mortality statistics for previous periods. For example, statisticians might expect 300,000 people to die in [...]

Beyond the headlines

Paul Tuns: From the editor's desk Typical headlines on a local crime story read “Nebraska teen who used pills to end pregnancy gets 90 days in jail” (New York Times) and “Nebraska teen sent to jail over illegal abortion” (Rolling Stone). The first is misleading, the second an outright lie. Read the actual news story and one discovers that Celeste Burgess, 18, [...]

Maltese legislature protects preborn

Warren McArthur: Maltese lawmakers successfully stopped an attempt by pro-abortion activists to demand concessions for legal and widespread abortion in their country. This is happening in light of a recent Pew research poll which shows widespread support for abortion across Europe. An amendment to the Criminal Code in Malta would have legalized abortion in cases where the mother’s health was at risk. [...]

Euthanasia for mentally ill

Rory Leishman: Time and again, the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has pledged that as of March 17, 2024, physicians and nurse practitioners in Canada will be authorized to kill suicidal patients who are suffering solely from a mental illness. What can account for this appalling prospect? The Criminal Code of Canada clearly and unambiguously states in sections 14 and [...]

When ignorance means death

Donald DeMarco: “All men by nature desire to know,” Aristotle asserted. The eyes and ears are the organs of sensation which serve, as are the doorways to knowledge. Blindness and deafness are dreadful handicaps. In our desire to know, we use technology to open new doors to knowledge. The telescope, microscope, the X-Ray machine, radar, amplifiers, and so on, broaden our field [...]
