The US State Department this past week released its yearly, Trafficking in Persons Report. China received an automatic downgrade to the lowest ranking, Tier 3, for being a destination country for sex-trafficking.
The State Department acknowledged the one-child policy as the key source of demand for sex-trafficking and forced prostitution within the country, but remained silent regarding the abolition of the harmful policy in its list of policy recommendations for China. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Well, it finally happened: rapper Kanye West and professional famehound Kim Kardashian had their baby, a girl, this weekend. Unfortunately for the happy couple, though, the birth was marred by an ill-timed leaking of a single off Kanye Wests newest album, Yeezus. (The title is a mix of Kanyes nickname, Ye, and Jesus. Get it?)
Just before Kim gave birth to his child, the song Blood on the Leaves hit the internet, and considering that this song is basically an ode to abortion, the leak was ill-timed indeed. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Gosnell never happened. There never was a trial inPhiladelphia. Testimony was never received in a public courtroom that this one is big enough to walk me to the bus. We never heard that it was raining blood in that human abattoir, that late-term abortion facility.
A story in the Telegraph claims that Japanese scientists may soon grow human organs in animalsmade from human stem cellsfor later use in transplant surgery. I am dubious.
From the story: A panel of scientists and legal experts appointed by the government has drawn up a recommendation that will form the basis of new guidelines for Japans world-leading embryonic research. There is widespread support in Japan for research that has raised red flags in other countries. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
An opinion poll carried out by Amárach Research on behalf of the Life Institute and Family and Life shows that the vast majority of Irish voters believe Taoiseach Enda Kenny is wrong to try to force pro-life TDs and Senators to vote for his abortion legislation.
It also shows that 86 per cent of voters would prefer to see the abortion issue resolved by popular referendum than by the politicians in Leinster House. A similar proportion believe that if legislators are to decide the issue they should be allowed a free vote. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Joyce Arthur, executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, recently blasted media outlets for being too balanced in their coverage of Dr. Henry Morgentalers death by interviewing pro-life Canadians.
On June 18, the Michigan Senate Judiciary Committee approved, by a 3-1 vote, legislation designed to prevent minors seeking abortion without parental consent from judge shopping.
The Republican-controlled US House of Representatives has passed a bill that would reduce late abortions. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
Web Site Behind Ads With Pregnant Teen Boys Promotes Abortion
If you live in Chicago, or anywhere else with a news channel, its likely youve seen one of these ads depicting pregnant teenage boys. The Chicago Department of Health followed Milwaukees lead by plastering them on billboards and buses across the city in an attempt to lower their teen pregnancy rate, which is reportedly 1.5 times higher than the national average. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The Louisiana Legislature recently passed a bill that threatened to transform the state into our version of Indiaa country in which destitute and desperate women are exploited for their gestational capacities by a surrogacy industry and its foreign customers. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
British General Medical Council Must Support Conscience Rights on Abortion
When two Glasgow midwives won the right to opt out of supervising abortions last April I suggested that the General Medical Council (GMC) needed to revise its professional guidance on the matter which now seemed to be at odds with the law. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
The lawyer of a man who police say tricked his pregnant girlfriend into taking an abortion causing drug is requesting bail for his client, who is being charged with product tampering and murder in the death of the couples 6 to 7-week-old unborn baby. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/

As a news organization funded in large part by those on the left and staffed by those on the left, NPR often hews to the priorities of the left in its coverage. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
In a desperate move to appease its basein the wake of increased pro-life laws that reflect the will of the people but jeopardize the bottom line of abortion businessesPlanned Parenthood has sued section 14 of the Kansas 2013 Pro-Life Protections Act, claiming it violates first and fourteenth amendment rights to free speech and abortion access. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/
