Health Department Investigates Abortion Clinic That Killed Woman in Botched AbortionGathered around a spray of pink and white flowers that held a photo of Lakisha Wilson, state and national pro-life leaders conducted a press conference yesterday outside Preterm, the Cleveland abortion clinic where Wilson died. The leaders made a unified call on the Ohio Department of Health to suspend Preterm’s abortion facility license pending a full investigation.
But what participants did not know at the time was that while they addressed the media before a large gathering of pro-life supporters, officials from the Ohio Department of Health were inside the facility conducting a preliminary investigation. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/03/health-department-investigates-abortion-clinic-that-killed-woman-in-botched-abortion/
Heartbreaking Pictures Show Chinese Parents Leaving Their Babies at “Baby Hatches” The cultural preference for boys and healthy children in China is so prevalent that a baby “postbox” to save abandoned babies from infanticide has had to close because of overwhelming demand. News reports indicated as many as three babies a day were left at the “postbox” — most of them ill or having some sort of disability.
Now, one newspaper has posted heartbreaking pictures of parents who have been forced to abandon their newborn children at these so-called “baby hatches.” http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/03/heartbreaking-pictures-show-chinese-parents-leaving-their-babies-at-baby-hatches/

Doctors Tell Mom to Abort Her Baby Girl Five Times, Now She’s an Internet SensationAfter three miscarriages in a row, Angie Rodgers wasn’t expecting her next unborn child to survive to 40 weeks. But she had hope. So when doctors repeatedly told her to abort her baby, she knew the answer was no. She knew she needed to give her baby a chance at life.
At three months gestation, doctors discovered that Rodgers baby girl had a rare form of dwarfism. According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, Conradi-H√ľnermann syndrome is a rare genetic disorder characterized by skeletal malformations, skin abnormalities, cataracts and short stature. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/03/doctors-tell-mom-to-abort-her-baby-girl-five-times-now-shes-an-internet-sensation/

Eugenics: Bioethicist Pushes Genetic Screening to Eliminate People With Low IQ
Eugenics is pernicious. Its core philosophy holds that some human beings are better than others based on invidious categorization of human capacities and characteristics.
Eugenics leads to oppression and even, killing. The old eugenics unleashed involuntary sterilization, infanticide in Germany, and the murder of disabled adults. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/03/eugenics-bioethicist-pushes-genetic-screening-to-eliminate-people-with-low-iq/

The Murderer Hollywood Doesn’t Want You to Hear About Filmmakers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney have been speaking out against media and Hollywood bias in efforts to fund their new movie project, Gosnell.
McAleer and McElhinney, along with journalist Magdalena Segieda, launched a crowd-sourcing campaign through Indiegogo to produce Gosnell, which Hollywood Reporter said, “unlike FrackNation and other movies McAleer has produced, will be a scripted drama, and be based largely on grand jury testimony and documentation from Gosnell’s trial, which major media outlets covered sporadically.” http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/03/the-murderer-hollywood-doesnt-want-you-to-hear-about/
Second Black Woman Killed in Botched Late-Term Abortion, Where’s the NAACP?While pro-life advocates are up in arms about the recent death of Lakisha Wilson, a 22-year-old patient at Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland, who died from a botched five-month abortion, the media has virtually ignored the story.
Leading African-Americans pro-lifers are very upset that Wilson’s death has not only been ignored by the media but has been ignored by the black establishment, including the NAACP. http://www.lifenews.com/2014/04/03/second-black-woman-killed-in-botched-late-term-abortion-wheres-the-naacp/
