- The National Catholic Register features an interview with Prof. Michael J. New on the far-reaching effects of state level pro-life legislation.
- Generations for Life posts the text of an excellent persuasive speech on euthanasia a GFL college student, examining the “slippery slope” of a society which embraces the culture of death. In the Netherlands, where euthanasia is normalized, the post disturbingly states, “over 10k citizens carry ‘do not euthanize me’ cards as a safeguard in the event they are taken to a hospital.”
- Live Action points out the UK media are more willing to show photos of preborn humans, showing accurate fetal and embryonic development (like the photo at left of a 6 week embryo from a BBC story). Why are US media outlets unwilling to do the same?
- The Culture Vulture shows the “Monty Python“-esque situation of the Abortion Supervisory Committee in New Zealand, which has decided it won’t actually supervise abortion providers to make sure they are following NZ law. It truly would be funny if it weren’t so unbelievable.
- The FRC Blog reports scientists at Stanford have successfully turned human skin cells into functioning nerve cells.
- MN Citizens Concerned for Life discusses the two types of assisted suicide and why both are wrong in light of human equality.
- Euthanasia Prevention Coalition discusses the case of Canadian nurse William Melchert-Dinkel, who preyed on suicide-vulnerable, depressed individuals in online chat rooms, convincing at least 2 young people to commit suicide. This “suicide voyeur” was given an extremely light jail sentence and is appealing it on the grounds of free speech.
- Parenting Freedom finds the hypocrisy in an article about the banning of children’s kickball games, which are deemed dangerous – but it’s acceptable to give those same young children condoms to engage in sex.
