WARNING AGAINST ADOPTING OREGON SUICIDE LAW

VANCOUVER, Apr 29 (LSN) – Writing in today’s edition of The Province, a Vancouver daily, Susan Martinuk delivered a stunning expose on the horror of Oregon’s law permitting physician assisted-  suicide (PAS). Oregon law stipulates that patients seeking PAS must be within six months of death,  mentally competent and have the approval of two physicians. However, Martinuk reveals that the case of the first victim of the new law demonstrates the fact that the so-called safeguards crafted by Oregon’s legislators were useless in practice.  Details of the death revealed recently note that the first two physicians whom the woman consulted […]

UN THOUGHT POLICE TO ENFORCE POLITICALLY CORRECT NEWS

BOSNIA, Apr 29 (LSN) – The UN controlled NATO forces have decided to create an “intervention tribunal”  designed to clamp down on politically incorrect information. The idea gained popularity after heavily armed NATO “peacekeepers” seized four radio and television transmitters controlled by Bosnian Serbs last October. The move was in response to Serb TV broadcasts suggesting that the U.N. war crimes tribunal was anti-Serb.  NATO is creating the tribunal with the power to forcibly stop radio, television and newspaper broadcasts from spreading “poisonous propaganda” which they say undermines “peace.” World Net Daily which reported the news noted that Western officials […]

HELMS WARNS CLINTON: LAST CHANCE TO APPROVE COMPROMISE ON U.N. FUNDING

WASHINGTON, Apr. 28 (LSN) – The US Senate voted today to approve funding for the UN, with some conditions on the use of US funds to promote abortion. It seems likely, however, that President Bill Clinton, a strident supporter of abortion “rights,” will veto the proposal, as he has done in recent years. The legislation offers the UN $819 million, and forgiveness of a $107 million debt owed to the United States. Although most of the bill’s original pro-life conditions have been removed, Mr Clinton appears unwilling to budge. The bill would prevent international pro-abortion “family planning”  agencies that receive […]

AUGUSTA, Apr. 28 (LSN) – The two Christian groups who spearheaded the successful campaign to revoke Maine’s pro-homosexual law last February are set to repeat their performance, this time focusing on partial-birth abortion. The Christian Civic League of Maine and the Christian Coalition of Maine are launching a petition drive to put the issue to a public vote. Last year, Maine’s political leaders refused to ban the gruesome later-term abortion procedure,  even though it included a political compromise, in the form of an exception for cases in which it is claimed the life of the mother is at stake.  In […]

LOS ANGELES, Apr 27 (LSN) – On April 23, the ABC television officially announced its cancellation of the homosexual promoting show “Ellen,” with its final episode, adding to the anti-family heyday on the television, coming on May 13.  Last year the show shocked audiences into paying it some attention by having its main character embrace an active homosexual lifestyle, winning the acclaim of anti-family forces the world over.  Although heralded as the foremost program in encouraging homosexuality, other popular programs are proving more successful by including homosexuality as normal while focussing on other plots.  The most dangerous of these programs […]

MOVIE OUTLINES ANTI-LIFE PRELUDE TO NAZI HOLOCAUST

MANHATTAN, Apr 27 (LSN)  A documentary film by Israeli filmmaker Nitzan Aviram opened last week at the Manhattan Film Forum, showing how the Nazi holocaust began with the “mercy killing” of the mentally and physically handicapped, at the hands of German doctors. The film, “Healing by Killing,”  was reviewed Saturday in a New York Post editorial, with astonishingly pro-life commentary. The author says that “it doesn’t take an Aldous Huxley to foresee how the legality and social acceptability of abortion, combined with in vitro genetic testing, could lead to the extermination in the womb of those likely to be a […]
