“So they ran all these tests, and they meet with me yesterday…”
A one-pound baby shocked doctors, who didn’t think the premature infant would survive. But God had other plans for little Ezekiel Cal Lugo. here is his story. As his parents Rudy and Nellie tell it (video follows): On September 1st, 2011 our son Ezekiel Cal Lugo was born 4 months too early. He was born […]…
This is a good example why people are losing trust in the health care system. Over at CNN, medical producer Stephanie Smith writes a story arguing that we should do away with second opinions in determining brain death. From, “Repeat Exams for Brain Death Bad for Organ Donation:” For brain dead patients, a second examination to declare death …
Chicago has become the murder capital of America for the large number of shootings and murder victims it produces and, tragically, Christmas day was no exception. Young Eva Casara told her grandmother she was leaving the house and asked when dinner was ready. Sadly, the pregnant teenager never made it back home. The only silver […]…
A newborn baby doctors declared dead in China was found to be alive two days after he was thought to be dead and sent to a funeral home to be cremated. The case resulted in authorities revoking the license of the doctor who mistakenly declared the newborn boy dead, according to an AP report. The […]…
Pro-choice activists are up in arms over the new law in Texas that requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals. Because so few abortionists in Texas are able to get these admitting privileges, abortion clinics are suspending operations.
One pro-choice website said the following:
“An admitting privileges law is a TRAP (Targeted Regulation of Abortion Providers) law. The main intent of TRAP laws is to stop abortion through legislation that doesn’t outright make abortion illegal—because that would be unconstitutional and unenforceable—but instead through forcing clinics to close. TRAP laws tend to place unnecessary burdens and stigmas on abortion providers.”
Former Governor Sarah Palin, whether it was intentional or not, certainly began the discussion on end of life issues when she referred to “death panels” in a 2009 debate about federal health care legislation to cover the uninsured in the US.
Governor Palin was referring to death panels in the context of government officials making life and death decisions if/when the government took over our health care system.
Years ago, I received a serious death threat directed against the personnel at a specifically named hospital. My correspondent was convinced that a beloved baby had been killed instead of provided expensive care, and in his grief, told me he was plotting revenge. (I called the FBI which diffused the situation. But it was very worrying.)
I was reminded of that upsetting episode by a USA Today story about a wave of violence against hospital workers in China. From the story:
A new report out today suggests Pope John Paul II’s mother rejected an abortion when pregnant with him.
Under the headline “Blessed John Paul II was in danger of not being born,” the Vatican Insider web site says the information was revealed by Milena Kindziuk in the book just came out.
You trust your doctor with your care. Those in the medical profession are supposed to be healers, not killers. However, there are so-called doctors who’re more willing to advocate for the cause of abortion, than they are for your health.
British doctors found to be doing illegal sex-selection abortions will not face criminal charges, according to a new report.
Sex-selection abortion is an epidemic in nations like China and India, where cultural mores cause citizens to force male babies over females. But with people from those nations and other Asian countries where men are favored moving to nations like Great Britain, they are apparently taking the practice with them and finding abortion practitioners willing to do the abortions.
It’s sackcloth and ashes time.
Belgium is really gearing up its euthanasia followed by organ harvesting regime–and apparently the transplant medical community has no moral qualms. In fact, it has become so morally ho-hum, that it was the subject of discussion at the 21st European Conference on General Thoracic Surgery held in the UK in May.
Last week in Seoul, South Korea, pro-life doctors of American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) were banned from speaking at the last minute because their presentations were deemed to “threaten women’s reproductive rights.”
They were also described as “unscientific” and “political.” These three doctors were scheduled to present at the Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA) conference. It apparently doesn’t matter to the leaders of MWIA that these doctors had relevant and important information to present. Such reasons don’t change that the leaders who made such a decision were barring those from speaking who disagreed with them. It’s ironic then how they call themselves pro-choice, isn’t it?
