#439 Abortion Drops, New Book, No-Nuke Conference

Dramatic Drop in U.S. Abortions in the News The U.S. government agency, Centers for Disease Control (CDC), recently reported these figures from their records: Between 2006 and 2015, in 9 years, the number of abortions dropped 24%. and The rate dropped from 15.9 per 1,000 women aged 15-44 in 2006 to 11.8 in 2015. The rate decline shows the lower number of abortions isn’t merely because there are fewer women of child-bearing age So what’s causing this decline? Many pro-lifers cite their work on state-level abortion regulations, and groups such as Planned Parenthood cite their own work on spreading contraception to prevent the pregnancies that would ot

#437 Unplanned the Movie, Human Rights, Gendercide

Unplanned: The Movie Mark your calendars! Due out March 22, 2019, the Hollywood movie Unplanned, based on CL Endorser Abby Johnson’s book of the same name, tells her story of being the manager of a Planned Parenthood center who became an active pro-lifer. While having its own merits, it’s also a good follow-up to the recent Gosnell movie, in that abortion proponents have reacted to the horrors of Gosnell’s clinic by saying the shocking conditions there show the need for more reputable places like Planned Parenthood. This movie shows that “more reputable” is still a horror story for women. International Human Rights Day Ward Ricker of Human Rights for All Ages,

#436 Religions, Elections, Mass Shootings

Parliament of the World's Religions Harmony rather than deadly conflicts between different religions is a major part of the peace movement. CLN vice-president Rachel MacNair attended the Parliament November 1-7 with thousands of people in Toronto. Themes of preventing war and similar killings were constant, as were preventing racism and poverty. Rachel found that the death penalty and euthanasia came up only in her own private conversations. Abortion had a major role in the Gendercide Awareness Project’s art piece, 117 Million “Missing” Women, with baby booties for every 10,000 missing women. There was also a small session (a dozen attendees), with three papers in which one

#435 Elections, Gosnell & The Hate U Give

U.S. Elections November 6 As a civic-minded non-profit, we encourage all our readers to vote, and our U.S. readers to vote on November 6. Candidates: Unfortunately, we don’t have information to offer to help inform the vote. Consistent-life candidates are hard to come by, and when found are generally running for lower offices, so consistent-life voters have different voting strategies. Referendums: We’re unable this year to find any state referendums dealing with the death penalty or assisted suicide (the usual ballot version of euthanasia), and war issues are rarely ballot issues. There are three on abortion: one restricting taxpayer funding in Oregon, another stating the state constitutio
