Irish Abortion Debate Skewed by Propaganda

    John Waters at the Irish Times: A STRIKING aspect of the culture we are industriously constructing is the automatic assumption that individual claims regarding “rights” must trump more established concepts of societal organisation and human self-reflection. By a process of purposeful osmosis, Irish culture has of late been painstakingly manipulated to make one set of understandings appear outmoded and pernicious, and the other axiomatic and benign.

Abortion Drugs Linked to Maternal Deaths in Developing World

“Bill and Melinda Gates: Changing the world” | Al Jazeera

    Melinda Gates says that despite criticisms from the church, she still feels obligated to bring safe contraceptives to the developing world:” We shouldn’t shy away, as a world, from doing things because we have made them difficult. Yes, contraceptives have had some sticky times in the past – absolutely – some not great things happened in Peru, our own country and in India and other places. But it means that we stepped back from it as a world and yet we are letting women die because they can’t space their children.”

Rwanda embraces treaty guaranteeing “legal abortion” Affirming the importance of women’s access to safe and legal abortion, the Rwandan government has lifted its reservation to Article 14(2)(c) of the African Charter on Human and People’s Rights of Women in Africa (also known as the Maputo Protocol). The Maputo Protocol is the only international treaty that explicitly guarantees the right to legal abortion. Under the Protocol, the Rwandan government is now required to “protect the reproductive rights of women by authorizing medical abortion in cases of sexual assault, rape, incest, and where the continued pregnancy endangers the mental and physical health of the mother or the life of the mother or the fetus.”

China: Can Organ-Harvesters Be Number One? | George Weigel

    George Weigel at EPPC: Despite some hiccups caused by the sorry state of the world economy, China is still The Future for many global analysts. Thomas Friedman of the New York Times has even suggested that Americans have a lot to learn politically from the economic successes of Chinese authoritarianism. That China is the rising world power seems taken for granted in many elite foreign policy circles. I’m not buying. I didn’t buy “Japan is Number One” when that was the mantra two decades ago, because Japan had severe demographic problems-as in, very few children; its lack of the most basic form of people power in the most elementary form, I thought, would soon become evident in economic weakness (as it has). China also has serious demographic problems. Thanks to a brutally enforced one-child policy

India Girls Victimized by Sex-Selection Abortions Have New Hope

Canadian Medical Association votes against reopening abortion debate, says life begins at birth The organization representing Canada’s doctors says life begins when a baby emerges from its mother’s womb. Delegates to the Canadian Medical Association’s annual general council meeting Wednesday supported keeping a section of the Criminal Code that declares a child becomes a human being at the moment of birth. Their moves comes after concerns that a private member’s motion in Parliament could be a backdoor to criminalizing abortion and the doctors who perform it.
