Thirty-four years ago today, the communist regime in China enacted its "One-Child Policy," one of the most disastrous and immoral social policies ever imagined in human history. It was the communist regime's answer to curb the growth of the world's largest population.
The One-Child Policy banned most Chinese couples from having more than one child. When couples conceived a second child, the Chinese government forced them to eliminate him or her, by any means necessary. However, because of cultural norms that place a premium on boys, the policy's victims also included first-conceived children simply because they happened to be girls. In addition, Chinese women who gave birth to baby girls were also victims of this policy because many ended up being shunned by their husbands, families and society.
For over three decades, China's One-Child Policy has condemned approximately 37 million Chinese girls – who the policy helped deem unwanted or "surplus" – to abortion, infanticide, abandonment and human trafficking. In recent years, the Chinese government has relaxed this disastrous policy and ironically, China now faces demographic decline in the coming decades, in part due to the One-Child Policy. However, innocent Chinese parents are still forced to endure abortions and sterilizations in the parts of the country that are still subject to it. more >>
Texas Governor Rick Perry has spoken about the new law concerning abortion facilities in the state and posited whether the same type of law might have saved the life of Joan Rivers, who died on Sept. 4.
"Clearly, the will of the Texas Legislature - which I agree with - that it is a state's right to put particular types of considerations into place, to put rules and regulations into place, to make a clinic be as safe as a hospital," Gov. Perry said at a press conference on Sunday.
Gov. Perry signed a law known as HB2 "to make this a safer place," in 2013. The law would have required more stringent requirements for abortion clinics, including a mandate that abortions be performed in ambulatory surgical centers. That led to numerous clinics being closed because they were unable to upgrade their facilities. However, a federal judge struck down the law after an appeal was brought by The Center for Reproductive Rights. more >>
It's a famous Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times. President Obama is living through those times, to be sure. The Chinese have another phrase: Losing the Mandate of Heaven. It is their ancient belief that rulers must govern in accord with Heaven's conception of justice. To rule in violation of what Western philosophers have called the Natural Law, that is, the law written on the heart, is to risk all legitimacy and to put one's record in history at peril, the Chinese have taught us.
Barack Obama went to Planned "Barrenhood" (Parenthood) one year before he accepted the nomination of his party to run for president. Candidate Obama pledged his devotion to an outfit that beheads a thousand unborn children every day.
He has kept his promises to them. He threatened to veto a Continuing Resolution to keep the federal government open if Speaker Boehner and House Republicans took away a single dollar from that evil enterprise. And when he addressed a conclave of abortionists (the first president ever to do so) he even said upon leaving: God bless you. more >>
Just two days after winning the 2014 Miss America pageant, Miss New York Kira Kazantsev is facing criticism from conservatives for working as an intern for Planned Parenthood.
Kazantsev's LinkedIn profile stated that she was an intern at Planned Parenthood for 3 months in Hempstead, New York. It has since been taken down but not before conservatives on social media expressed their outrage that she won the pageant while being a part of the organization.
Critics on Twitter shared the story with headlines such as "Miss America May Have Killed Babies To Get To The Top," asserting that she should have been disqualified from the competition for working for the largest abortion provider in the naton. more >>
Doubt has been cast on the success of a bill being debated in Spain that would increase restriction to abortion access in the European nation.
The Spanish publication El Mundo has recently published an article noting that multiple sources within the current government see the proposed legislation as being tabled.
"There's no consensus within government around the bill," said one source in the Partido Popular government headed by Mariano Rajoy, adding that "if an agreement cannot be reached -which seems unlikely - the draft bill will be dropped." more >>
A report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office showed that the Affordable Care Act, also called "Obamacare," is providing coverage for abortions.
Contrary to the claims of many proponents of the health care law, the GAO's Monday report found that the rules were not clarified and thus ignored.
The Affordable Care Act required that qualified health plans (QHPs) be provided that may include coverage of abortion services. more >>
