Petition Tag - abortion
A baby's growth In the first trimester that rules out just a bunch of cells.
In Exodus 20:13 it says: Thou shalt not kill. Many Christian's are pro-choice, but if they are believers of God and claim to follow God, than why do they not see this scripture? How to baby's somehow not apply? Also in Matthew 5:21: Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgement:
In Psalms 139:13-16: For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skilfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
All scientist' and biologist' cannot correctly deny the fact that a baby is a living being at conception.
A baby is fully formed at 12 weeks, that's well before the end of the first trimester. So if a baby is conceived and alive at conception, then when tell me, is it still ok at 11 weeks?, 10 weeks? Does there come a time when it is not a living human being after conception? It may not be fully formed at that age, but it is still alive.
Q: At what point does it become wrong to intentionally destroy a developing human being?
C: Heart beat?
D: Brain waves?
E: Capacity of pain?
In 2003 66% of Australian's thought abortion should be legal in the first trimester.
10% thought it should be legal in the third trimester.
Why the discrepancy?
Because a third trimester abortion kills a baby and a first trimester kills a bunch of cells.
Or does it?
A 9 week old foetus sucks its thumb and turns somersaults.
A 7 week embryo shows distinct limb movement.
A 6 week embryo has measurable brain impulses.
A 3 week embryo has a heart beat.
They may not look like a baby yet, but they look exactly as a human being should look 21 days after conception.
In the hours of conception every aspect of the genetic inheritance for a new individual will be determined once and for all.
So begins the first day of the first nine months of life.
At any stage of pregnancy, abortion kills a rapidly developing, genetically distinct, human being.
I was shocked when I discovered that the currant legal UK Time limit that a woman could get an abortion is 24 weeks gestation.
My child was born at 20 wks gestation and I can assure you that she was aware of voices, she had skin sensation.
She used to kick her legs in her incubator in an attempt to kick off the tubes that were coming out of her.
Human lives are terminated before birth every day.
Babies have a right to be born.
What if YOU were aborted?
This petition is about saving lives.
PLEASE ALSO SEE:
The definition of "human being" is of fundamental importance to the governing of Canadian society and the functioning of the Canadian judicial system. The definition present in the Canadian Criminal Code (under section 223(1)) is potentially outdated, and should be revised in light of more recent medical evidence.
The purpose of Motion 312 is to update this definition, and then petition Parliament to make all necessary legal changes in light of revision, if there are any.
Canadian residents of any age may sign.
Charter of Rights and Freedoms (1982):
Section (1) "...guarantees the rights and freedoms set out in it subject only to such reasonable limits prescribed by law as can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society."
If the unborn are persons, abortion reform is a "reasonable limit" to guarantee "rights and freedoms" of all human beings.
Section (7) "Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice."
If the unborn are persons, they must be granted "the right to life", and abortion reform would be necessary to reach such "fundamental justice".
The Canadian Human Rights Act (1985):
Section (2) "...that all individuals should have an opportunity equal with other individuals to make for themselves the lives that they are able and wish to have and to have their needs accommodated, consistent with their duties and obligations as members of society, without being hindered in or prevented from doing so by discriminatory principles...."
If the unborn are human beings, they must be granted "opportunity equal with others to make for themselves...lives". Abortion reform would not be part of "discriminatory principles" against women, but part of ensuring equality in opportunity to live.
If the unborn are persons, then Parliament has the moral duty to give the unborn the right to life. Parliament must, then, also grant pregnant women more federal support, by any just means, so that the child(ren) may be born, and that she does not suffer financially or otherwise.
You Have the Power to Stop the ObamaCare Artificial Contraception Mandate
Catholic Birth Control: 99% Efficacy Rate, Better Sex, Greater Intimacy & Unconditional Love
The Obama Administration announced that as part of ObamaCare it would mandate that Catholic and all other religious institutions will be forced to provide artificial contraception and abortion pills in their insurance plans even though this is a violation of Church teaching. Scores of Catholic institutions and over a dozen states are suing the Obama Administration for violating the 1st Amendment religious freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
Did you know that the Birth Control Pill and all other artificial chemical hormone products are classified as Class I Carcinogens (cancer causing agents) by the World Health Organization and the U.S. Federal Government?
Did you know that the artificial chemical hormones that the ObamaCare Artificial Contraception Mandate will provide to all girls and women for FREE cause various cancers, heart attacks, strokes, blood clots, weight gain, mood swings along with other physical complications and dangers for women?
Did you know that since “The Pill” was introduced to America in 1960 that breast cancer rates skyrocketed from 1 in 20 women to the current 1 in 8 and now 250,000 women are stricken with breast cancer every year in the U.S.A and around 40,000 die? DETAILS
Did you know that the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate is intended to give all girls carcinogenic chemical hormones from the age of puberty until menopause?
Do you think having Class I Carcinogens in the bodies of all American women for the typical 40 years of fertility is good for the health of our magnificent American women?
Do you think filling your wife, mother, daughter or sister with Class I Carcinogens during their typical 40 years of fertility is good for their health or does it pose unacceptable health risks to your loved ones that you will not allow?
Did you know that virtually no one uses artificial contraception correctly 100% of the time and every instance of misuse causes severe risks of Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) transmission and also drastically increases unplanned pregnancy rates?
Did you know that over 50% of abortions are a result of this well-known misuse of artificial contraception?
Did you know that an ex-director of the largest abortion provider in America admitted that this organization knows that artificial contraception is a complete failure as clearly shown by the statistics above and their objective is to influence politicians to force government schools to teach “Safe Sex” lies to our children with the goal of executing 3-5 abortions on our young girls from the ages of 13-18 when virtually all sexually promiscuous children misuse artificial contraception?
Did you know that the artificial contraception “Safe Sex” lie still results in 1 Million abortions in America each year and many women undergo multiple abortions as per the plan stated above when artificial contraception fails?
Did you know that condoms do not protect against the incurable skin-to-skin contact STDs of HPV and HSV resulting in a projected 80% infection rate of HPV amongst women and up to a 50% infection rate of HSV for all sexually promiscuous individuals?
Did you know that there are 19 Million new STD cases in America every year and the cumulative effect over the past 6 decades has devastated our society with mass STD infections of all kinds?
Did you know that the MAJORITY of our children practice “ABSTINENCE ONLY” while in grade through high school and DO NOT experience unplanned pregnancies or the devastation of STDs during these vital developmental years?
Did you know that the artificial contraception “Safe Sex” lie and the accompanying “use and be used for casual sex, but take the pill and use a condom” propaganda facilitated the skyrocketing fatherless home rate in America from 6% in 1960 to 43% today with a shocking 70+% fatherless home rate in our black communities?
Did you know that the Obama Administration is attempting to force artificial contraception on the Catholic Church in DIRECT VIOLATION of the religious freedoms GUARANTEED by 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and dozens of Catholic organizations and over a dozen states are suing the Obama Administration for violating the Constitution?
Did you know that women are only fertile on average 10 days per month so the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate will cause millions of women to unsuspectingly take Class I Carcinogens from puberty to menopause when they are already infertile 20 day of every month?
Did you know that the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method keeps women free from Class I Carcinogenic chemicals and the resulting health dangers?
Did you know that the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method has up to a 99% efficacy rate of preventing pregnancy and this is a better effective rate than many artificial contraception methods mandated by ObamaCare?
Did you know that couples that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method report better sex, greater intimacy and unconditional love for each other?
Did you know that couples from all religions, Atheists and agnostics practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method because it is scientifically proven to be superior over artificial contraception methods physically, biochemically, psychologically, medically and for people of faith spiritually plus it has the vital benefit of keeping women free from carcinogenic chemicals during the entirety of their reproductive years?
Did you know that the men that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method know about and respect their wives’ bodies more than the average woman that practices artificial contraception knows about her own body?
Did you know that this concern for the health and wellbeing of their wife’s body creates the trust, unconditional love and respect that all men and women need emotionally and psychologically to maintain healthy and strong marital relationships?
Did you know that the divorce rate doubled from 25% to 50% after the pill was introduced to America in 1960?
Did you know married couples, including Catholic couples that practice artificial contraception experience this 50% divorce rate with many experiencing multiple divorces, but couples that practice the Catholic Church’s prescribed birth control method have a 0.2% divorce rate?
Did you know that virtually no American citizen including our politicians knows the full details of the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate and that there is a new and captivating website developed to provide the complete details to everyone?
Now that you know the scientific truths revealed herein will you HELP to STOP the ObamaCare artificial contraception mandate?

House Bill No.5711 will do the following:
-Criminalize all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, without exceptions for rape victims, the health of the woman or in cases where there is a severe fetal anomaly
-It would require health centers that provide abortions to have surgery rooms, even when they don't provide surgical abortions.
-It would require doctors to be present for medication abortions and to screen women for "coercion" before providing an abortion
-Ban "telemedicine" abortions, or the use of technology to prescribe medication for abortion services and the morning-after pill
If this bill is passed it holds the potential to shut down most reproductive health centers in the State of Michigan, which is not only detrimental to the health of women but also infringing on a woman's right to choose.
A simple petition to Archbishop Terrence Prendergast to bring out the Holy Eucharist at the next March for Life in Ottawa, Canada.
Abortions are taking the life of Innocent fetuses. People say abortion should be legal if the pregnancy is because of rape or incest, according to abortionblackout.com only 1% of abortions are because of rape or incest.
Also according to abortionblackout.com 31% of all abortions are paid for by our tax dollars though medicaid.
The One Child Policy in China allows families to have only one child, with few exceptions, in an effort to control the population. For example, if a mother who already has a child gets pregnant and the government somehow becomes aware, the women will be whisked away for a forced abortion and likely sterilization.
There are many documented cases of pregnant mothers being kidnapped, imprisoned and beaten, then forced to abort, as late-term as up to nine months. The government should not be involved in family planning.
Below are some articles that give a clear picture of just what is going on: (Copy and paste)
The facts: http://factsanddetails.com/china.php?itemid=128&catid=4&subcatid=15
On Monday, a picture became circulated of a helpless infant dieing in water in a red bucket in a HOSPITAL in China. After the Chinese Birth Control Office injected poison into the pregnant woman to make her deliver the baby dead, it actually came out alive and started to cry.
The people responsible ripped the baby from its mother and threw it in a bucket, with water in it, to die. This is not going away and harm will come upon our world for this kind of atrocity continuing. Shame on the Chinese government for allowing this, and anyone else who condones this criminal, terrorist activity upon helpless infants.
I ask, and hold and hear by that those involved need to be held responsible, and put in a courtroom where they will be judged for their crimes by the great citizens of the common world. Thank you. Justice and the common man's concern for human life will prevail!
It has become apparent that many legislators in various states across the USA are not allowing women to make private and intimate choices about their own bodies. This includes toying with the idea of state sanctioned rape, mandatory ultrasounds, and even equivocating women to cows and hogs on a farm.
One legislator has gone as far to say that being raped is equal to having a flat tire on your car.
Motion M-312 will be considered by Parliament at the end of April 2012 and voted on in late spring or early fall. The motion poses a real danger to abortion rights, to the rights of all pregnant women, and to women’s equality rights in general. It is motivated solely by anti-abortion ideology. The intent is to bestow legal personhood on fetuses in order to re-criminalize abortion.
However, personhood is a socially and legally constructed concept, and it is bestowed upon birth for very practical and obvious reasons. The courts have stated that the intimate connection between a woman and her fetus cannot be considered in isolation, and that giving rights to fetuses would impose a duty of care on a pregnant woman that would result in extensive and unacceptable intrusions into her bodily integrity, privacy, and autonomy. To grant personhood to the fetus is to necessarily remove personhood from the woman. Historical and medical evidence clearly shows the negative and often catastrophic results when the state interferes and imposes restrictions on the reproductive rights of women in the interests of “protecting” fetuses. In the U.S., hundreds of women have been prosecuted because of so-called “fetal homicide” laws and thousands more have been subjected to punitive and counterproductive child welfare interventions that treat what women do or experience during pregnancy as evidence of child neglect or abuse.
In reality, the best way to protect fetuses is to ensure that pregnant women have full rights, and to provide them with the supports and resources they need for a good pregnancy outcome – which may sometimes include having an abortion.
Please sign the following petition to call upon Parliament to oppose Motion 312. To review our counter arguments against the bill, visit http://www.arcc-cdac.ca/action/M-312.html
Le Parlement examinera la motion M 312 à la fin d’avril 2012 et se prononcera à son sujet à la fin du printemps ou au début de l’automne. Cette motion constitue une réelle menace pour le droit à l’avortement, les droits de toutes les femmes enceintes et, plus généralement, le droit à l’égalité des femmes. Essentiellement motivée par l’idéologie anti-avortement, elle vise à donner au fœtus le statut juridique d’être humain, afin de criminaliser à nouveau l’avortement.
Le statut d’être humain est cependant un concept élaboré à des fins sociales et juridiques, accordé à la naissance pour des raisons éminemment pratiques et évidentes. Les tribunaux ont affirmé que la vie d’une femme et celle de son fœtus, intimement liées, ne peuvent être considérées séparément, et qu’en accordant des droits au fœtus, on imposerait à la femme enceinte une obligation de diligence qui constituerait une atteinte grave et inacceptable à son intégrité physique, à son droit à la vie privée et à son autonomie. Accorder le statut d’être humain au fœtus revient nécessairement à rabaisser le statut d’être humain de la femme. Historiquement et médicalement, il est prouvé que l’intervention de l’État et les restrictions imposées aux droits génésiques des femmes dans le but de « protéger » le fœtus ont des effets néfastes et souvent catastrophiques. Aux États-Unis, des centaines de femmes ont fait l’objet de poursuites en vertu de lois interdisant l’« homicide fœtal », tandis que des milliers d’autres ont été soumises à des interventions punitives et contre-productives de la part d’organismes de protection de l’enfance qui interprètent certains gestes et expériences des femmes durant la grossesse comme des preuves de négligence ou de violence envers leur enfant.
En réalité, la meilleure façon de protéger le fœtus est de faire en sorte que les femmes enceintes jouissent de leurs pleins droits et de leur fournir le soutien et les ressources dont elles ont besoin pour que leur grossesse se termine bien, même dans les cas où l’avortement est la seule solution.
Nous vous demandons de signer la pétition ci-dessous, afin de demander au Parlement de rejeter la motion 312. Pour connaître l’ensemble de nos arguments à l’encontre du projet de loi, veuillez consulter le http://www.arcc-cdac.ca/action/M-312.html [en anglais].
13. End abortion now
All the facts you need to know are on this website:
Some others are that:
Babies feel pain at nine weeks. For every 3 baby's born in America one is aborted and if you do the math that's a lot of baby's just in America think about how many are killed in the entire world.
A vast majority of abortions are elective procedures. According to the latest available data 76% of Albertans support the defunding of abortion with the exception of those abortions performed in the cases of rape, incest or when the life of the mother is in grave and present danger as a result of the physical impact of the pregnancy.
A strong public healthcare system requires ever more prudent fiscal responsibility. We urge the government to only fund procedures that are justifiably deemed medically necessary.
We support conscience rights for taxpayers. Medical procedures that are not widely supported by the public should not be publicly funded. Through this petition we express our sincerest desire as citizens and participants in governance that abortion be defunded in the province of Alberta.
The American justice system stands on volumes of decisions from previous trials. Courts rule—sometimes even against conscience or reason—based on legal precedents.
Prosecutors and defenders often present DNA findings in rape and paternity cases. Judges, jurors, and society readily view this science as positive identification of crimes and criminals.
Such facts even seal or reverse capital murder verdicts. Through DNA proof, falsely convicted prisoners go free. Yes, and even traces of DNA autographs have sentenced thousands of felons to lifelong prison sentences. DNA also proves fatherhood in paternity cases.
There have been far too many babies aborted in Massachusetts. It is a shame that a state where many founding fathers were from, abortion is legal.
This is NOT a religious motivated petition. It is for anyone, whether Theist or Atheist, who knows the truth about abortion and why it is wrong.
Let's stand together to overturn Planned Parenthood in the Bay State.
Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell charged with murdering 7 infants with scissors
BY LAUREN JOHNSTON
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER
Wednesday, January 19, 2011
A doctor who ran a "house of horrors" abortion clinic has been charged in the deaths of one woman and seven babies who prosecutors say were born alive then killed with scissors.
Dr. Kermit Gosnell, who treated mostly poor and immigrant women, was arrested Wednesday along with nine employees from his West Philadelphia Women's Medical Society - among them a high school student who performed medial treatments with no license.
Gosnell, 69, raked in millions over 30 years performing illegal and late-term abortions, prosecutors said.
Officials described his squalid clinic like something out of a horror movie
"There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building," said Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams. "There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose."
Gosnell has been named in at least 10 malpractice suits, but Williams said state regulators ignored complaints about his clinic and that the office hadn't been inspected since 1993.
Patients endured barbaric procedures at the hands of the twisted doctor, officials charged.
Gosnell "induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord," Williams said.
On May 12, during the CBC's nightly program "The National", CBC reporter Laurie Graham reported that 5,000 people attended the March for Life on Parliament Hill.
The number was a gross distortion, since the real number of participant exceeded over 15,000.
Allen West is a man of unusual honesty, integrity, intelligence, education, common sense and sound judgment.
Allen West is a man of profoundly Judeo-Christian values. He is strongly pro-life. He is strongly pro-Israel. He correctly understands Islam and the threat it poses to America.
He is beholden to no special interest group. He would carry out the duties of his office in the best interests of America.
The Campaign to Stop Stericycle is a consorted effort against Stericycle, the nation's leading medical waste company, for their collection, transportation and incineration of aborted children.
We are calling upon Stericycle to immediately stop servicing the abortion industry, which facilitates and furthers the holocaust of the unborn in our nation.
Por que los fetos se vuelven humanos noventa días después de la concepción según dicen ciertos legisladores? Nadie conoce la respuesta porque no hay razones que lo justifiquen. El feto no cambia en un instante matemáticamente establecido de su condición de no humano a persona humana.
El único verdadero momento cuando el cambio fundamental y metafísico ocurre es cuando los gametos masculinos y femeninos se encuentran, se unen, y se transforman en huevo. Luego de esto, conservando la completa herencia genética recibida de los genes originales de sus progenitores, el huevo comienza un proceso de desarrollo biológico constituyendo la unidad de la vida en un perfecto ciclo que comienza con la concepción y concluye con la muerte. Por lo tanto, el momento anterior a su concepción, es el único en el que un legislador puede establecer con absoluta seguridad legal que un huevo no es un ser humano.

With 4.3 million abortions performed in New York City in the past 40 years, New York is the "Abortion Capital of America," with approximately 250 abortion providers in the market, according to NARAL, NY.
These numbers indicate there has been consistent, wide availability of abortion services for New York’s women, while access to abortion alternative centers has been far more limited, with only 23 locations (and some of these part-time) operating in all of New York City: a ten to one ratio.
Hear Dr. Alveda King, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's niece, encouraging the signing of this petition
The NYC City Council's Bill #371A was passed overwhelmingly by a 39-9-1 vote on March 2nd, 2011, and signed into Local law 17-2011 by the Mayor on March 16th, 2011. It creates onerous, one-sided, unconstitutional speech regulations, with whopping, cruel and unusually harsh penalties for those centers it describes as "Pregnancy Services Centers."
The newly revised Local Law 17-2011, different than the original Bill #371 offered in October, 2010, narrows the scope of the life centers that are covered by the law.
To be covered, a center location must fit two or more criteria such as offering pregnancy tests, plus maintaining or operating medical equipment (ultrasounds), operating inside of a medical office or a clinic, having technicians present at any time, etc.
All NYC pregnancy centers have provided free options counseling, referrals and some form of material support, but only EMC FrontLine has offered free ultrasound and prenatal care, which no abortion facility in New York City provides.
The law passed on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 by a 39-9 vote law APPEARS, at this time, to apply only to the oldest and largest group of centers, EMC FrontLine. It might cover one other group which shares space with a Foot clinic.
On July 14th, 2011, EMC will be ordered to post onerous disclaimers on their doors, waiting room walls, and advertisements, and to make oral disclosures to all potential clients on the phone, internet, and in person that they do not perform abortions or provide referrals, distribute FDA-approved contraceptives or provide referrals, provide or refer for Emergency contraception, or "morning after pills" and recommend seeing a physician, elsewhere, if none are available on-site immediately, at each of their locations, where there is even an appearance of medical services provided (as described above.)
The draconian penalties for repeated violations of the above, include being shut down for five days after three violations, stiff fines of up to $2,500, and JAIL FOR UP TO SIX MONTHS for those who do not comply with the shut-down order, in addition to being subject to private lawsuits, which could include potential punitive damage claims.
The bill’s primary authors and co-sponsors, Councilwomen Jessica Lappin, and Speaker Christine Quinn have repeatedly made slanderous allegations that EMC Pregnancy Centers engaged in false and misleading advertising despite their advertising headline : “Free Abortion Alternatives," and copy points: free ultrasounds, free pregnancy tests, and free confidential options counseling, placed periodically on NY City subways and buses.
At the only public hearing on this bill, November 16, 2010, hypocritically, Planned Parenthood of NYC's president accused EMC of locating across the street and in the same building as two of their sites, and specifically in minority areas. Their abortion mills were opened long before EMC's alternative-to-abortion centers arrived near them.
According to New York Vital Statistics data, in the ten-year period (1999-2008), of the 922,272 abortions performed, 726,845 (79%) were Black and Hispanic babies.
In 2009, NYC saw an overall 41% abortion rate, and New York City Blacks in 2009 had 1,500 abortions for every 1,000 live births, representing a race in decline; rounded up percentage wise, this represents a 60% abortion rate.
These numbers point to a profound need for greater outreach to women of color, and expansion of alternatives- to-abortion services.
Without these centers and availability of free ultrasound services, easy to obtain pre-natal care and honest and compassionate assistance, there is only one option that women see and have: abortion. Without these centers, women have no true “choice.”
In a compassionate city such as New York, life-affirming pregnancy options and assistance, and professionally administered ultrasounds, ought to be celebrated and not legislated into oblivion!
In contemporary Russia, you not allowed to advertise alcohol and cigarettes, but everywhere is freely available and advertised services on abortion.
The victims of this advertising are primarily girls - teens and women from poor families. The annual number of abortions in Russia reaches 2 million.
We are murdering our own offspring. "Abortion is the murder of an innocent child. It has to be condemned by society." - Ven. Pope John Paul II, 2/14/82 Nigeria. "(Abortion) is pure, pure murder." - Blessed Mother Teresa in video to David T. Little, now President of the World St. Thomas More Society.
The USA is the most influential nation on earth. Unless we end this demonic barbarity, and soon, the USA will destroy itself as it has cursed itself by coercing its citizens to pay for abortion through income tax. 50,000,000 and more innocent preborn children have been murdered since 1973. Go to www.worldthomasmore.org for full facts and information.
Our Founding Fathers were men of prayer, moral persons, and strong in faith. They trusted in The True God Creator of Heaven and Earth to govern this land that is so openly gone backwards.
The time is Now ! for the Body of Christ to raise up and take back what is rightfully OURS!
I ask that justice be done for unborn children that are being aborted in the city of Akron, Ohio. Abortion is murder. This is evidenced by ultra sound images that show a living child in the womb.
We are killing off our next generation but it does not end there. We also will not have the generations that would have come from these babies had they not been murdered. We will never know how these babies would have turned out or what accomplishments they could have made.
The very act of abortion leaves many women with serious depression problems for the rest of their lives.
It also sometimes has physical consequences. Medical research has connected breast cancer as a side of effect of abortion that sometimes occurs and so also is permanent sterility.
Indian girl Infanticide-Female Fetocide: 1 million girls killed before or after birth per year.
Abortion, Female Infanticide, Foeticide, Son preference in India. India’s female to male ratio is 100 males to 93 females compared to a world average of 100 males to 105 females.
The main reason for the widespread female foeticide and the continuing prevalence of female infanticide in parts of India was the dowry system, which although long prohibited by law, continues to play a significant role in Indian society. Dowries and wedding expenses regularly run to more than a million rupees ($35,000) in a country where the average civil servant earns about 100,000 rupees ($3,500) a year.
Added to this the low status of women in rural India, where they perform the menial tasks of the family such as carrying water and firewood and seeing to feeding the animals, and it is clear where the roots of the discrimination spring.
The Department of Health gives abortion clinic Marie Stopes £30 million per year.
In addition, the UK Foreign aid budget has given Marie Stopes International nearly a million pounds per year to perform abortions in the Third World.
This abuse of taxpayers' money must stop now.
As the host country of the G8 Summit on June 25/26, 2010 in Huntsville Ontario, Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his governing Conservative Party of Canada have chosen to champion an initiative to improve maternal and child health in developing countries.
However, this admirable initiative has become deeply mired in the Conservatives’ anti-choice ideology. The government announced on April 26 that they will not fund safe abortion services “under any circumstances” in developing countries. Although they were forced to back down from their earlier position that family planning and contraception would also be excluded from the initiative, there is still no firm commitment to fund family planning – only a vague promise to “consider” it, and to “not close doors against any options, including contraception.”
Please sign the following petition to call upon Parliament to include funding for safe abortion and family planning/contraception in Canada’s G8 maternal/child health initiative.
Incluez le financement du planning familial et d’avortements sans risques dans l’Initiative canadienne du G8 pour la santé des mères et des enfants:
À titre de pays-hôte du Sommet du G8, les 25 et 26 juin 2010 à Huntsville (Ontario), le premier ministre Stephen Harper et son Parti conservateur du Canada au pouvoir ont choisi de faire du Canada le champion d’une initiative visant à améliorer la santé des mères et des enfants dans les pays en voie de développement.
Toutefois, cette initiative admirable se retrouve profondément enlisée dans l’idéologie anti-choix des Conservateurs. Le gouvernement a annoncé le 26 avril qu’il ne financerait « sous aucune considération » la prestation de services d’avortement sans risques dans les pays en voie de développement. Même s’ils ont été forcés de faire marche arrière en regard de leur position préalable visant à exclure également de l’Initiative le planning familial et la contraception, il n’existe pas encore d’engagement ferme du Canada de financer le planning familial – seulement une vague promesse de « l’envisager » et de « ne fermer la porte à aucune option, y compris la contraception ».
Veuillez signer la pétition suivante qui réclame du Parlement le financement d’avortements sans risques, du planning familial et de la contraception dans l’Initiative canadienne du G8 pour la santé des mères et des enfants.
Oi, MTV! Play Amanda Palmer's Oasis vid on your channel! And you, too, NME! And Q! Don't be such babies!
my label in the UK has been gearing up to promote “oasis” as a radio and video single.
a few days before i left for london i got this email from someone at roadrunner:
Hope you are both well,
I just thought I’d let you know that we have been met by fierce opposition on the Oasis track.
Which is disheartening, as combined with the video, we all felt it was a great promotional tool and track.
All our TV outlets have refused to play the video due to it “making light of rape, religion and abortion”. This is the audio as well as visual.
Many of the stations like the track, and even the video but are bound by strict broadcasting rules. I personally find this quite ridiculous.”
wasn’t this the UK, land of black humor blacker than blackest black itself?
i emailed back and asked which outlets. the reply:
”NME tv, Scuzz, kerrang, MTV, Q, the box … to name a few. There is only a few networks: bauer, chartshow and MTV. They control all stations and they all had the same issue….”
and i sat there thinking, wow. here we go again.
why can’t ANYTHING just be effing EASY this year?
it isn’t a simple issue, obviously. but the fundamentals seem clear to me.
i sat down one day in or around 2002 and wrote a tongue-in-cheek, ironic up-tempo pop song.
a song about a girl who got drunk, was date raped, and had an abortion.
she sings about these things lightly and joyfully and says that she doesn’t care that these things have happened to her because oasis, (her favorite band) has sent her an autographed photo in the mail. and to make things even better (!!), her bitchy friend melissa, who told the whole school about the abortion, is really jealous.
....if you cannot sense the irony in this song, you’re about two intelligence points above a kumquat."
