Pro-life blog buzz 3-25-14

At the Euthanasia Prevention Coalition, Alex Schadenberg says an Australian high court has decided that a man who helped his friend commit suicide cannot inherit from the will of his deceased friend. Until this ruling, Schadenberg notes:
Only those convicted of murder or manslaughter had previously been barred from benefiting from an estate if named as executors or beneficiaries in their victim’s will. Hopefully this decision will further protect people who are at the lowest point in their life.

Live Action News highlights the remarkable story of Mindy Tran, a mother who threw her body under a rolling car to prevent it – with her twins buckled inside – from going into traffic. She is expected to recover from her injuries.Mindy’s example should cause our nation to ponder the true meaning of motherhood. Deep down we want mothers to do everything they can to protect, nurture and care for their children. We praise them when they sacrifice because we know it’s the right thing to do. Where would we be as a nation if all mothers sought to protect their children’s lives at any cost?

At Coming Home, Dr. Gerard Nadal pens a letter “addressed to every physician, scientist, and genetic counselor who believes in a eugenic agenda that targets the unborn specifically because of diagnosed genetic anomalies”: 

Who taught you in medical school or graduate school that we doctors of science and medicine are the custodians of the human gene pool? Who was it that told you it was your job to keep that pool “clean?”…
How have we progressed from that understanding to where we are today?…
What is it that you believe you have been entrusted with that leads to this neo-eugenics?…
When was it that we stopped looking for cures and enhanced therapies, and started taking the cheap way out? When did death and non-existence become the answer, rather than healing and wholeness? When did we receive a mandate to kill every baby we could in order to aid the patient in avoidance of suffering?

Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Lifereminds us that today, March 25, is theInternational Day of the Unborn Child. To promote this, share the graphic (above) on social media.

Big Blue Wave wonders if, in the future, euthanasia has the potential to begin to disproportionately affect minorities like abortion has.

At The Leading Edge, Brendan Malone counters an attempt to glamorize the “work” of notorious New Zealand back-alley abortionist Flo Radcliffe(1904-1975). Far from being admirable, Radcliffe charged well for her services – $2500 per abortion – and was certainly no charity worker. She was known to have injured some abortion clients and even ran a brothel out of her home. Malone notes, “If this is what passes for a pioneering women’s advocate then I’d really hate to see what these people consider to be the exploitation of women.”
