March 7, 2014 World News Comments Off

Closure of Beaumont, McAllen clinics leave 24 abortion facilities operating in Texas8 By Chuck Lindell American-Statesman Staff Thursday’s closure of abortion clinics in Beaumont and McAllen leaves 24 clinics operating in Texas, down from 36 in July, when Gov. Rick Perry signed stricter abortion regulations into law after two acrimonious special legislative sessions. Abortion providers attribute the closure of one-third of the state’s clinics to House Bill 2’s requirement that abortion doctors have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic. The number of open clinics has fluctuated in recent months. Several facilities, including a Planned Parenthood clinic in Austin, reopened after doctors secured hospital privileges after the requirement went into effect Nov. 1. In addition, state…Continue Reading

March 7, 2014 World News Comments Off

by Kirsten Andersen Thu Mar 06, 2014 19:07 EST OMAHA, NE, March 6, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Billionaire investor Warren Buffett has donated over $100 million to pro-abortion groups, many of which directly pay for women’s abortions, according to a new report at National Review. Buffett, 83, is the world’s fourth richest person, according to Forbes.  In 2012, he was the number one philanthropist in the U.S.  He has famously pledged to give away 99 percent of his estimated $60 billion net worth to charity before he dies. But Buffett’s philanthropic largesse has a dark streak.  An avid promoter of population control, he uses his charitable foundation to funnel tens of millions of dollars into abortionists’ coffers every year – much…Continue Reading

The Romeike’s can stay!!!’: Surprise decision means German homeschooling family won’t be deported

March 5, 2014 World News Comments Off

by John Jalsevac Tue Mar 04, 2014 18:29 EST PURCELLVILLE, VA, March 4, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In a surprising last-minute turn-around, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today that they are granting “indefinite deferred action status” to the Romeikes, meaning the beleagured German homeschooling family won’t be deported to their home country after all. The development amounted to a shocking and welcome 180-degree turn for the family, who just yesterday had learned that the Supreme Court rejected their appeal of a lower court ruling refusing to grant the family asylum in the United States. That decision meant that the Romeikes had run out of legal options, and likely faced deportation to their home country, where homeschooling is a punishable…Continue Reading

Belgium’s Child Euthanasia Move Lamented As ‘Unbelievable’

March 3, 2014 World News Comments Off

Vatican City, Feb 28, 2014 / 04:03 am (CNA/EWTN News).- In the wake of Belgium’s recent decision to legalize euthanasia for children, several members of the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Life voiced their dismay at the new practice. John Haas, president of the National Catholic Bioethics Center in Philadelphia, Pa. and governing member of the academy, called the development “dreadful.” “They are appealing to ‘rights of children’ to make these determinations, but children aren’t capable of making those types of self-determinations,” Haas told CNA in Rome Feb. 21. “So what is really going to happen is that, under the rules of children making these decisions for themselves, parents and physicians are going to be making those decisions, for children, to…Continue Reading
