Human Trafficking Report Shows One Child Policy a Lead Cause of Trafficking in China

Last week, the State Department released their annual Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report.  The years report saw the downgrade of three countries (China, Russia, and Uzbekistran) from a Tier 2 ranking to Tier 3, which is the lowest possible ranking.  Countries designated into the Tier 3 category are those countries that “do not fully comply with the (trafficking) law’s minimum standards and are not making significant efforts to do so.”

Pro-Life Ireland Safer for Mothers, Babies than Pro-Abortion UK

Last week, a fascinating new research paper was released which demonstrates that mothers and babies in Ireland are safer there and receive better care than they would in the neighboring United Kingdom, in spite of the fact that abortion remains illegal in Ireland.  The paper, entitled Maternal and Neonatal Health and Abortion: 40 Year Trends in Great Britain and Ireland, was authored by CLI Adjunct scholar Byron Calhoun, MD, as well as John M. Thorp MD, and Patrick S. Carroll, MA.  It was published in the American Journal of Physicians and Surgeons.

Increasing Contraception or Decreasing People: Melinda Gates Can’t Avoid Controversy Over Women Deliver Speaker List

When Melinda Gates announced the Gates Foundation’s expanded commitment to contraception, she made certain to spell out that this commitment did not embrace abortion or population control. Successful pursuit of this “middle road” Gates thinks should cause “no controversy” has frustrated both those who oppose government-run efforts focused on contraception and those who believe any reproductive health program that does not include abortion fails women.

Why Reading “Why I Froze My Eggs…” Scrambled My Brain

The Friday, May 3, 2013 Wall Street Journal essay, “Why I Froze My Eggs (and You Should, Too)” astounded me in many ways and left me with an overwhelming sense of sadness for the misguided author, Sarah Elizabeth Richards.  Reading this career woman’s personal account of the tragic “wasting” of her prime dating years in her 20s and 30s, leading her to ultimately spend $50,000 and find herself “lying naked on a cold operating table in a foreign country while a stranger tries to harvest - egg by precious egg - the last of your fertility…” in order to “own her desire to be a mom” makes me wonder where feminism and medicine have gone so woefully wrong.

Plan B: Abortifacient and Other Risks

The Food and Drug Administration announced on April 30, 2013, that it has approved a drug maker’s application to make Plan B One-Step available over the counter, without a prescription, to girls age 15 and over.  This decision marks a retreat from the previous policy, endorsed by senior Obama Administration officials and President Obama himself, to continue requiring minor children (under the age of 17) to obtain a prescription for this controversial medication.

Gosnell Case Demonstrates Need for Rigorous Clinic Inspections

This past week the court case of abortionist Kermit Gosnell took on a new level of dreadfulness as a health inspector from the Pennsylvania Department of Health took to the witness stand.  Elinor Barsony testified to the deplorable conditions she discovered upon her initial inspection of Women’s Medical Society, Gosnell’s Philadelphia abortion clinic, in 2010.   Gosnell is on trial for the murder of seven babies born alive whose spinal cords he allegedly severed with scissors.
