A lethal legacy: Hurricane Katrina and the indignity of euthanasia

    Public Discourse: When Hurricane Katrina battered the Gulf Coast and devastated New Orleans in 2005, many wondered what would become of the fabled city and its French-and-African fused culture. Katrina was among the strongest hurricanes ever to hit the United States, killing almost 2,000 people, displacing more than 800,000, and causing over eighty billion dollars of property damage. Almost a decade later, the city continues to recover, with tourism on the rise and new artists and hipsters attracted to the idea of rebuilding a city. But the aftermath of the storm’s legacy on debates in medical ethics is just now being fully understood.

Guttmacher misleads on reasons for teen pregnancy decline

    National Review: Last month, the Guttmacher Institute released a study on teen pregnancy rates. The news is good. The report finds that teen pregnancy rates are reaching historic lows. Overall, in the past 20 years the teen pregnancy rate has fallen by 50 percent and the teen abortion rate has decreased by almost two thirds. Additionally, the study found significant long-term declines in the teen pregnancy rate among whites, blacks, and Hispanics. All 50 states report reductions in teen pregnancy rates. These reductions are an unheralded public-policy success story.

Protecting the human right to be born female

    National Review: In a remarkable case of inauspicious timing, a writer at Slate chose the eve of the 25th anniversary of the brutal crushing of dissent in Tiananmen Square to attack sponsors of efforts to stop abortions for the purpose of sex selection. Defenders of the unpopular policy of permitting such abortions have staked much of their efforts on making it appear that opposition to sex-selective abortion — which is almost universally used to end the prenatal lives of females — is based on racial prejudice against Asian Americans. A lethal gender prejudice is therefore tolerable because condemning it is a form of ethnic bigotry.

An interview with Emily Letts

    The Christian Post: Letts was the subject of many articles immediately following her award-winning video. Whatever you make of the reality of that video her views throughout this interview are telling: the individualistic nature of her worldview is on full display, from her statements that the video is “just” her story to her statement (repeated twice) that the “male was not involved in my decision.”

Why abortion-rights advocates should fear the Supreme Court

    National Journal: The abortion-rights movement is on the verge of a massive gamble. The movement is trying to roll back a wave of state laws that have successfully curtailed access to abortion, and their best hope for doing so—perhaps their only hope for doing so—is likely a ruling from the Supreme Court. Advocates could soon get their wish: A Texas antiabortion law appears headed to the high court as soon as its next session, and a ruling against it could put other states’ abortion restrictions on the shakiest of legal ground.

Abortion is not safer for women than childbirth

    Life News: Media outlets such as Time Magazine and Reuters have provided extensive coverage to an article recently published as “Original Research” and entitled, “The Comparative Safety of Legal Induced Abortion and Childbirth in the United States,” by Raymond and Grimes in the Feb, 2012 journal Obstetrics & Gynecology. The article concludes by stating: “Legal induced abortion is markedly safer than childbirth. The risk of death associated with childbirth is approximately 14 times higher than that with abortion. Similarly, the overall morbidity associated with childbirth exceeds that with abortion.” Is this the truth? NIFLA doesn’t believe so.

Gallup found a drop in pro-life sentiment, but the long-term gains are undeniable

    National Review Online: Yesterday, Gallup released a survey on attitudes toward abortion that found a slight decrease in pro-life sentiment since their most recent poll in May 2013. Forty-six percent of respondents identified as “pro-life,” while 47 percent identified as “pro-choice.” But the poll did contain some good news for pro-lifers: Gallup found that pro-lifers seem to care more about the issue when voting than pro-choicers.
