University of Hawaii recruits 14-year-olds for late-term abortion experiments

    Hawai’i Free Press: “While Hawai’i law permits a private hospital to provide ‘medical care and services’ to a pregnant minor without a parent’s consent, federal regulations on medical experimentation do require parental consent to medical experimentation on an underage patient. There may also be some doubt whether a medical experiment that may offer no medical benefit could truly be considered “medical care” under the deemed consent law, raising a question whether the clinical trial could violate state law as well as federal law if parental consent is not obtained. I do find it curious that the published notice on this trial states that the researchers will conduct ‘[n]o additional follow-up after discharge home.’”

    – Stephen Aden, Senior Counsel/Director, Center for Life Alliances, Alliance Defending Freedom, April 1, 2015

Always care, never kill: How physician-assisted suicide endangers the weak, corrupts medicine, compromises the family, and violates human dignity and equality

    The Heritage Foundation: Allowing physician-assisted suicide would be a grave mistake for four reasons. First, it would endanger the weak and vulnerable. Second, it would corrupt the practice of medicine and the doctor–patient relationship. Third, it would compromise the family and intergenerational commitments. And fourth, it would betray human dignity and equality before the law. Instead of helping people to kill themselves, we should offer them appropriate medical care and human presence. We should respond to suffering with true compassion and solidarity. Doctors should help their patients to die a dignified death of natural causes, not assist in killing. Physicians are always to care, never to kill.

    Law and Religion UK: In 2012, the Daily Telegraph organized an undercover operation into gender-specific (sex-selective) abortion at various abortion clinics in England and in February that year passed evidence concerning Doctors Palaniappan Rajmohan and Prabha Sivaraman to the Crown Prosecution Service and the police. The CPS concluded that in each case there was sufficient evidence of an abortion offence, although this was a finely balanced decision; however, it was not in the public interest to prosecute and the CPS published two statements regarding its decision on 5 September 2013 and 7 October 2013.
