Quotes to Note

Rep. Dave Weldon (R-FL) on the House floor, regarding stem cell research:

"The truth is that embryonic stem cell research is perfectly legal in the U.S. Every lab in America could do embryonic stem cell research," he said.

"The issue here is who is going to pay for it? The federal government should not. It is unnecessary research and it is unethical."

Preterm Babies: What Is Contributing to Their Increasing Numbers? 

Dr. Martin McCaffrey (U. North Carolina) 2013 article entitled "Abortion's Impact on Prematurity"

Coming Soon: Spanish Translation of Dr. McCaffrey's 2013 Abortion-Preemie Risk Link

Does Induced Abortion Account for Racial Disparity in Preterm Births, and Violate the Nuremberg Code?
The increased rate of PTB has a serious adverse effect on children’s health, with a disparate impact on black children. There is substantial evidence that IA is an important risk factor for PTB. It is likely that decreasing the rate of IA would decrease the incidence of serious disorders such as CP and autism, and thus that decreasing the disproportionately high IA rate in black American women would decrease the disparity in high-risk infants.
In violation of the Nuremberg Code, vacuum aspiration abortion has never undergone safety testing in animals or in small studies in humans. Instead, millions of women have been subjected, without safety testing, to a procedure for which there is substantial evidence of serious health risks both to women and their future offspring.
These risks need to be explicitly included in consent forms.

Why Do Black Women Have More Premature Births Than White Women? Abortion

Cost Consequences of Induced Abortion as an Attributable Risk for Preterm Birth


Women are, on average, 4 TIMES more likely to commit suicide after abortion than women who give birth and have no prior abortion experience...

There has been one SYSTEMATIC REVIEW & META-ANALYSIS [SRMA] of the Abortion--Suicide Risk -- http://www.physiciansforlife.org/content/view/2134/26/; the 2011 Coleman SRMA of 22 worldwide studies reported that women with prior Induced Abortions (IAs) have 4 times the suicide risk compared to women with zero prior IAs.
A SRMA is the category of medical study providing the highest confidence, pro or con, about a purported risk factor.

URL of the English language Rooney/Calhoun/Roche Breast Cancer article

Dr. Joel Brind:
There is a 400% increase that is likely a slight (I would not call it "marked") underestimation due to the inclusion of spontaneous abortions  [i.e. miscarriages]. The main point is that the number is perfectly consistent with a 500+% increase reported in another Indian study published just a few weeks back, not to mention the 2,000% increase also reported very recently in a study from Bangla Desh.
The real point is that the ABC link is EXPLODING in Asia.
The reason the Chinese average risk increase is only about 40-50% is that almost all abortions in China are done after first childbirth, so they have less of a risk-increasing effect than nulliparous abortions. [8 Jan 2014]

Physicians for Life

Physiciansforlife.org exists to draw attention to the medical realities of abortion, human embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, out-of-wedlock sexual activity, sexually transmitted diseases, and euthanasia.

Physiciansforlife.org strongly encourages sexual abstinence outside marriage in order to curb and eliminate the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases/ infections, to reduce the high rates of teen pregnancies, and to prepare our youth to develop strong and healthy life-long relationships in the parameters of marriage.

Physiciansforlife.org also encourages non-embryonic stem cell research which uses human Adult Stem Cells, Umbilical Cord Stem Cells, Placenta ("after-birth"), and even stem cells in the Wharton's Jelly of the umbilical cord itself, to successfully treat over 70 diseases including cancers, heart disease, and even diseases such as juvenile diabetes, sickle cell anemia, and lupus. iPS (induced Pluripotent Stem) cells -- and now Direct Conversion which directly converts one type of cell to another without stem cells -- have emerged as the focus of ethical, cutting edge stem cell research. In August 2008, scientists announced the transformation of adult cells into other types of adult cells (now termed Direct Conversion). All of these ethical means of cell research will undoubtedly transform medical treatments in the near future.

The overriding goal of every physician should be to Do No Harm, to help every person live the longest and healthiest life possible. We all begin as embryos; we should protect every human life, no matter how small, for the good of us all.

Baby Samuel at 21-weeks











This photo features 21-week-old human fetus Baby Samuel, still inside his mother's uterus (womb). As the doctor prepared to close the uterus after the surgery, Baby Samuel's hand came out. The physician lifted the child's hand to put it back in the uterus. The photo was taken during the operation (Vanderbilt Univ, 1999) to correct spina bifida, a congenital condition. The child is progressing well.  

"Fetus" is a Latin word meaning "offspring" or "young one".

What Does It Mean To Be Human?

One of the most fundamental questions that is increasingly facing bioethicists and society alike is the question, "What does it mean to be human?"

"In what consists the act of being human?"

In every area of philosophical concern, we are always thrown back to these basic questions...

Contraceptives & the Environment: What the Pill Is Doing to the World Water & Fish Supply (2013)

  Contraceptive Use in China Affects Water Supply and the Fish Which USA Imports

 In May of 2012, an expert in heavy metal pollution in water and a former researcher at the University of Hawaii named Liangjie Dong reported in the Journal of Environmental Sciences that China has high levels of estrogen disrupting compounds or EDC in its drinking water.

An artificial hormone known as progestins mimics the human progesterone, either alone or when combined with estrogen. When used in contraceptive pills, these synthetic hormones make their way into the water supply. A study that used 23 water samples from 6 river sources in China, found all of them contaminated at higher levels than rivers in the United States, Europe, Australia, and South Korea.

Before concluding this is just a problem for China, consider the fact that 27 percent of our American seafood comes from China...
