Including people with Down's
2014.08.28 - 9:30am - Mark Davis Pickup
A Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) news blog featured a story about a new line of clothing for people with Down syndrome that has been launched. Karen Bowersox of Mentor, OH, has developed a clothing line specifically for people with the condition. See http://www.cbc.ca/newsblogs/yourcommunity/2014/08/clothing-line-for-people-with-down-syndrome-finds-success-on-kickstarter.html.

Being an advocate for people with disabilities, I took note of the story. It's not a major human rights story, but I suppose it may be a concern—especially for a person with Down’s. This small good news story was refreshing after a bigoted and odious comment by Richard Dawkins last week. The lofty Oxford professor said it is immoral not to abort a child with Down’s. That's how coarse and anti-disability our culture is becoming—that such cruel comments would come from a prestigious university as Oxford. read more...
'Shame on PBS!': The Late-Term Abortion Documentary That Has One Group Fuming
2014.08.28 - 12:00am - The Blaze

The American Life League, a Catholic organization, is calling the film a work of propaganda, asking PBS to rethink its decision to air it on Labor Day. read more...
Three thousand rally for child induced at 25 weeks under Irish abortion law
2014.08.28 - 12:00am - LifeSiteNews
Three thousand rallied in Dublin Monday, calling for the overturning of the Irish coalition government’s new abortion law that has resulted in the deliberate premature delivery of a 25 week-old infant, named “Baby Hope,” who is now struggling for survival in a Dublin hospital.

The law, passed last summer, allows direct abortion and early induction through all nine months of gestation if doctors determine that the mother’s life is at risk, even if the risk is only a claim of suicidal intentions. read more...
'Going to Switzerland' Is a Euphemism for Assisted Suicide
2014.08.28 - 12:00am - The Atlantic
In the United States, “aid-in-dying” as some advocates call it, is legal in New Mexico, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and Montana. But the conditions under which a physician can help someone die are regulated—for example, in Washington, the person must be a resident, and be terminally ill with less than six months to live.

But Switzerland does not have clear regulations on assisted suicide, as highlighted by a new study published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, though it’s not for lack of trying. Several proposed regulations over the past few decades have failed. Six voluntary right-to-die organizations exist in the country, each with their own criteria, and four of them offer services to residents of other countries. read more...
Join the ALL Associate Program: A pro-life army for life
2014.08.27 - 1:00pm - Rey Flores
If there’s one thing that anyone who has served in active duty in the military can say, it is that you cannot stand alone in the battlefield. No one man is sent to do battle alone. That is why armies fight wars.

American Life League fights the war against evil daily—and we do not do this alone. We are blessed to network with several national and international pro-life organizations as allies to do battle against the culture of death, but none make us prouder than the grassroots, frontline Associates in our growing ALL Associate Program. read more...
Taken off life support and left to die, Haleigh""'s now thriving with her adoptive parents
2014.08.27 - 12:00am - LifeSiteNews
A girl who nine years ago was expected never to regain consciousness and was abandoned by Massachusetts welfare authorities, hospital medical staff, and the courts now watches the Disney Channel, enjoys the music of Justin Bieber and her Westfield Evangelical Free Church congregation, and tells her adoptive parents she loves them.

Haleigh, now 20, is by all accounts a happy woman living surrounded by love with her siblings, her adoptive parents Keith and Becky Arnett, and other foster children the couple have taken in over the years. read more...
