She Was Determined to Abort Her Baby, But Her Husband Wanted the Baby. Here’s What Happened

Brian E Fisher, from Online for Life, tells the following story: “The day after Christmas a woman, we’ll call her Sarah, telephoned a local, life-affirming center (a local, community-based organization designed to educate families about pregnancy and options other than abortion). She had already taken two home pregnancy tests – both positive. “She had decided to abort her baby. After she had a few questions answered, the woman said she was going to call a few other clinics. The center asked permission to follow up with her in a few days, and she agreed. “Sarah called back the next day on her own, asking if she could come in for an ultrasound. She had called abortion clinics, discovered she couldn’t get an abortion appointment in her own city for a few weeks, and was preparing to go out of state so she could get the procedure done sooner. Because she needed to verify the pregnancy with an ultrasound before the abortion, she agreed to come to the life-affirming center. “Sarah came in that day with her husband, Paul. The center gave her the ultrasound and talked to her about pregnancy, the child, and her options… “The couple left. Paul wanted to have the child; Sarah was now unsure if she wanted to abort… “Several days later, the center called Paul to follow up. Paul was overjoyed to report that Sarah had changed her mind, and they were going to carry and parent their child… “Here’s the twist: Paul is a policeman. His job is to protect people, even if that means putting himself in harm’s way. Yet he had...

Chemical Pollution ‘Messing’ with Female Metabolic Processes: Commentary

[Comment: When will the pharmaceutical industry and their feminist sales force – left-wing women’s groups – stop messing with women’s bodies by pushing sales of steroidal hormones (used in menopausal therapy and oral contraceptives)? Drug companies are apparently searching for a way that women can continue using hormone replacement therapy, but there are health risks associated with the use of these drugs. Unpatentable products, on the other hand, do not have the same money-making potential as do patented products. Some natural products are alternatives to hormone replacement therapy. These non-estrogen products relieve menopausal symptoms and, unlike hormone replacement therapy, they aren’t associated with the risks of heart disease, stroke and breast and uterine cancers.    Karen Malec,  Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer]   ABORTION-BREAST CANCER NEWS HEADLINES “‘Safe Window’ Allegedly Found for Hormone Replacement Therapy” Four years ago, the Women’s Health Initiative (WHI), a government-funded study, ended prematurely when researchers said they found that use of combined hormone replacement therapy (HRT) – synthetic estrogens and progestin – raises risk of heart attacks, strokes and breast cancers. The WHI’s 2002 findings were widely publicized and women rushed to their doctors to find some alternative to HRT for the relief of menopausal symptoms. Different cancer risks are associated with the use of combined HRT and oral contraceptives (OCs) versus estrogen-only HRT and OCs. Doctors generally prescribe estrogen-only HRT to women with hysterectomies, but not to women who still have their wombs. Researchers learned in the 1970s that estrogen-only OCs increase the risk of uterine cancer. Progestins (progesterone-like hormones) were added to estrogen-only HRT and OCs because they did not increase uterine cancer risk....
