Clinton redefines "human" like he redefined "sex":
A pending federal regulation, devised during the last days of the Clinton administration, could redefine the terms "fetus" and "child" and result in the legal use of newborns for scientific research. The regulation, which was cleared by the Clinton administration on January 17, but then postponed by the Bush administration, states that a newborn is still considered a "fetus" until it is determined the baby will live by "independently maintaining a heartbeat and respiration." Only when this determination is made is the baby considered a "child," according to the rule.
President Bush immediately placed a 60-day moratorium on the implementation of Clinton's rule as well as many others. The moratorium expired March 19, but was extended 60 days.
"If this rule is allowed to proceed, the position
of the Federal Department of Health and Human Services with regard to 'human
research subjects' will be that babies born alive are not necessarily children,"
congressional opponents wrote. Stay tuned.
The Population Control advocate, Planned Parenthood,
has been using an 'advertising gimmick' to lure youth to the warped ideas
on its teen website while promoting promiscuity among the children. They are
distributing "lollipop condoms". The rolled condoms are packaged in clear
wrappers with the child-attracting "Smiley Face" on the obverse and the teenwire.com
website on the reverse. The humorous packaging is a sub-conscious attack
on one's normal inhibitions with its "cuteness" and child-endearing form.
The packaging may also inspire even younger children to become enticed as
to finding out what these "kiddie condoms" are all about.
Hope After Abortion is a helpful website with testimonials written by women who have had abortions.
Fight Planned Parenthood is a good site to learn the the truth about our most esteemed and overfunded competitor.
"If low birth rates persist in Italy, experts
say the population could fall by nearly a third in 50 years, from 57 million
to 41 million. "Birth rates in Europe are the lowest in the world, with every
country except Albania and Turkey below the replacement level of 2.1 children
per woman. The number is especially low in predominantly Catholic nations
such as Italy, at 1.19, where 91 percent of women report using birth control.
Spain, where 93.5 percent of the population is Catholic, now has the lowest
rate ever recorded, 1.07 children per woman. In France, the birth rate is
at 1.26 children per woman; in Germany 1.3."
MORE CONTRACEPTIVES TARGETED AT TEENS
Determined to reduce teen-age pregnancies many governments promote contraceptives and abortive pills as the solution. The latest news comes from southern Wales, where this week trials have started on the distribution of the "morning-after" pill to girls as young as 9 years old. And in a trial program, nurses in state schools in east Kent, Oxfordshire, Derbyshire and South Yorkshire are to dispense the pill to girls under the age of consent without their parents´ knowledge, the Sunday Times reported Jan. 7.
The move, largely focused on areas with high teen-age pregnancy rates, provoked controversy. Anna Lines, of Family and Youth Concern, said: "It´s a quick fix that will give youngsters the go-ahead to engage in sex at an even earlier age."
Stuart Horner, professor of medical ethics at Central Lancashire University, said, "We are not talking about Smarties here, but significant doses of female hormone which can and does cause problems when it is administered. We do not know the long-term effects, particularly from regular use."
In Canada, too, authorities have approved the distribution of the morning-after pill known as Plan B without the need for a prescription.
Is contraception the answer? In spite of all these efforts to lower the teen-age pregnancy rates by means of contraceptives, often abortive in their action, not all officials are in agreement with this approach. For example, Trevor Stammers, tutor at St. George´s Hospital Medical School, London, published an article in the Dec. 16 issue of the British Medical Journal in which he affirmed that "contraception as the cornerstone of sexual health promotion for adolescents has manifestly failed." Stammers noted that in almost 15 years of general practice he had never seen a single case of unplanned pregnancy resulting from ignorance about or unavailability of contraception. In fact, studies show that up to 80% of unplanned pregnancies result from failed contraception. Data from 1975-91 show a positive correlation between increasing rates of use of condoms at first intercourse and higher rates of teen-age conceptions.
Data from the study suggested that by 1995, a church-led, voluntary effort had prompted about 2.5 million teen-age boys and girls to make spoken or written pledges to refrain from sex until marriage.
Federal and state governments will pay $100
million during 2001 to teach chastity as the only realistic strategy for
avoiding disease and pregnancy. That might signal to governments in other
countries that condoms and morning-after pills are only Band-Aids and not
a real solution.
There's a UN study saying our population will
fall 30% by 2050:

PLANS FOR EXCLUDING PRO-LIFERS AT CHILD SUMMIT HATCHED AT BEIJING+5
Pro-lifers have charged that UNICEF has taken two actions
to not only limit participation of pro-life non-governmental organizations
(NGOs) but also to ensure UNICEF's allies can flood the upcoming ten-year
review of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. UNICEF first moved to
limit the number of participants to no more than four per NGO. Even more
controversial, UNICEF also decided to allow two other categories of NGOs,
those that are called "UNICEF NGOs" and other NGOs that have a "special relationship"
with UNICEF. Pro-life groups report that one such "UNICEF NGO" has been allowed
to accredit 40 people. This same NGO is also screening participants to ensure
they are pro-abortion.
