Barbara Bush Story: by Jim Anderson [use granted unconditionally] Over the weekend, former First Lady Barbara Bush made known she will no longer accept what is known as ‘extraordinary care’ in her fight with congestive heart failure. The mother of two famous political leaders and four other children may now show the world how to use modern medicine to die well. 221The medical comfort she says she will accept will likely play a role in her death, though it will not have that intent. When such care is offered purely to alleviate pain, it is universally regarded as ethical treatment.
When radicalized proponents of abortion speak of violence against women to support their world view that abortion protects women, they rely on a study from a World Bank report originally released nearly twenty years ago. A report at LifeNews on the UN Commission on the Status of Women tries to offer a balanced look at why so many statistics used by abortion advocates are at least misleading. Another report laments how many gathering at the UN last week ignored the violence done to women in abortion.
The UN Commission on the Status of Women heard repeatedly from Reggie Littlejohn last week on the issue of gender selection abortions and government policies that promote such gendercide. In China, where much of her work is done, a preference for sons coupled with China’s one child policy creates a gender imbalance driving human trafficking and sex slavery.
In other news… Excluding weekends and holidays, South Dakota’s new abortion waiting period of 72 hours makes it the longest waiting period for an abortion in the nation. And New Hampshire is considering a bill redefining hydration and nutrition and state law that could okay the gruesome process of dehydrating disabled patients to death.
