Lejeune Exhibit January 29-31, University of Ottawa

From a friend. An exhibit well worth attending! You are invited to attend an exhibit about a remarkable French scientist, Jérome Lejeune, “a father of modern genetics” who in the 1960’s discovered the trisomy 21chromosome, the cause of Down syndrome. The exhibit will tell the story of the technical challenges of making the discovery in […]

“What we don’t know just might kill you”

Great article. You’ll remember Brittany Maynard as the young woman who killed herself recently, after being diagnosed with a brain tumour. The author of this piece asks important questions about how it is she may have gotten this brain tumour. We can’t say for sure, is the bottom line, but the questions are worth asking. […]

Does the Pill cause an abortion?

Read here, and decide for yourself: In order to reach high effectiveness rates, hormonal contraceptives rely on two main mechanisms: prevention of the fertilization of a woman’s egg (prefertilization effect), and prevention of the implantation of an embryo by the modification of the lining of the uterus (postfertilization effect). The second mechanism is what we’re […]

27 years of Morgentaler

The anniversary of Canada’s Roe v. Wade is today. 27 years since the Morgentaler decision. No cheering here, but that means ProWomanProLife is seven. Mike Schouten of We Need a Law addresses what the decision did and did not say. Abortion defenders enjoy referencing Justice Bertha Wilson – the first woman appointed to Canada’s Supreme Court. […]

Two abortions and no kids when you are “ready”

I actually worry about this kind of woman. I called my male therapist a chauvinist pig when he labeled my childlessness “a biological tragedy.” What seemed tragic was that it took me until my 40s to feel together enough to bear a child. By then it was too late. I feared God was saying: “I […]

“Welcome to the world” coin

A friend sent me this link to a “welcome to the world” coin, new from the Canadian Mint, and pointed out it looks a lot like the little feet lapel pin many people who are against abortion wear.  This is not, of course, what the Canadian Mint intends. I take it as a sign of how […]

The story’s end changes the meaning of every page

“God has the final say in my life, not cancer.” These are the words of a woman, a mother for four young children, who has a terminal diagnosis. This is probably the most profound, most brilliant video I have ever seen on the topic of dying, and dying with dignity – true dignity. She gets […]

RU486 defies the “no debate” rule on abortion

Mike Schouten’s article in the National Post yesterday draws attention to the fact that we will likely be expanding abortion services across Canada, but without any democratic process. Of course there is the argument that the RU486 is a nightmarish experience for women – an hours long drama of contractions ending with the expulsion of […]

Prenatal genetic testing tells us nothing

Amy Julia Becker makes a great point about finding out that her child had Down syndrome. There is some false, yet underlying assumption that pregnant women have to go through genetic testing to know if their child has the disability. But more importantly, that tiny bit of medical information, in essence tells us nothing.  Not […]

Tales of USAID and the sterilization horrors of India

I had written previously about the deaths of several women in Indian sterilization camps. This article explains to a greater extent the horrors that take place in these filthy centers, the lies that women are told and the tragic deaths and bodily harm that befalls them. Totally outrageous in all of this human misery is […]
