Pediatricians calls for end to ESCR

GAINESVILLE, Fl. – The American College of Pediatricians has called for an end to embryonic stem cell research, because, according to Dr. Tom Benton of the College, “The research has not been successful in terms of treatment. And, of course, the concern that it’s taking lives when you get embryonic stem cells.” The college says that it is better to spend the money on using adult stem cells. They have proven to be much more promising for treatment and cures and they are harmless to obtain.

21-year-old woman killed by abortion attempt

RIVERSIDE, Ca. – In mid-February, Edrica Goode, 21, died of toxic shock syndrome after an abortion at the Riverside, Cal. Planned Parenthood cite. A wrongful death and malpractice suit has been filed against Planned Parenthood by her mother, Aletheia Meloncon. The cause for her infection was the laminaria, a medical device used to stretch the cervix. Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc., a Texas-based pro-life group, says that there is no way of knowing how many of these types of lawsuits are pending against Planned Parenthood. The largest and best-funded abortion agency in the world is subject to regular lawsuits from families of women who have been injured, died or were sexually assaulted during abortions, erroneously believing that it is a safe alternative to motherhood. Crutcher says that all of these incidents indicate “they can only attract the lowest-calibre practitioners to go to work at an abortion clinic.”

Planned Parenthood accused of protecting pervs

WASHINGTON – When a 15-year-old runaway girl was found, after being missing for almost a year, police found paperwork in a home on the property where she was hidden indicating that she had had an abortion at a Planned Parenthood site in Connecticut. The girl, Danielle Cramer, would not disclose the identity of the father, claiming that the girlfriend of the 41-year-old owner of the house “would be really mad if she found out.” This is not the first time Planned Parenthood has committed abortions on underaged girls and failed to inform their parents. In May, a 22-year-old Norwich, Conn. man was arrested for raping a 14-year-old girl and getting her pregnant six times, taking her to a nearby Planned Parenthood site each time. Jim Sedlak, vice-president of the American Life League, said that, “It is time the public in Connecticut and across the United States understand the true nature of Planned Parenthood. No one should be supporting this organization that protects rapists, yet that is what we as taxpayers are being forced to do.” Last year, Planned Parenthood of the United States reported receiving $305 million in taxpayer funding, including $4.5 million in Connecticut.

Pro-abortion bias evident in secular media

NEW YORK – Scientific research has proven that women who have had abortions are susceptible to post-abortion syndrome (PAS). The largest study on the subject examined Scandinavian women and found that those who had abortions had almost six times the suicide rate of those who carried their babies to term. Yet, in a recent New York Times article, Emily Bazelon said that PAS is a “made-up term” by those who oppose abortion because, “With that conviction, these activists hope to accomplish what the anti-abortion movement has failed to do for more than three decades: persuade the ‘mushy middle’ of the American electorate.” However, Bazelon did not cite any credible, unbiased scientific research of her own in her story. At the same time, pro-abortionists have forced the American Psychiatric Association to remove PAS from all its references. A 2006 study by the Elliot Institue concluded that “the APA appeared to be consistently deliberately ignoring a body of studies published in the last seven years that have shown negative psychiatric effects from abortion.”
