New! Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, and the FACTS

Judie Brown
Sanger shaped the eugenics movement in America and beyond in the 1930s and 1940s. Her views and those of her peers in the movement contributed to compulsory sterilization laws in 30 U.S. states that resulted in more than 60,000 sterilizations of vulnerable people, including people she considered "feeble-minded," "idiots," and "morons." She even presented at a Ku Klux Klan rally. The facts about the location of specific Planned Parenthood offices/clinics tell a disturbing story.

"IRVING: Disagreement with this "Thomistic" definition of "person""

Dianne N. Irving
Summary: For St. Thomas, "personhood" is not a "meaning"; nor does he or Aristotle use terms such as "unfolding" or "horizons" (modern phenomenology). For Thomas "person" applies to real†human beings only -- not to communities, robots or posthumans. To paraphrase Thomas, the name of "person"(and he uses that term) does not belong to the rational part of the soul, nor to the whole soul alone -- but to the entire human substance (or, subsistens). [Thomas Aquinas, ST, Ia.q29, a.1, ans., ad.2,3,5, p. 156;† ibid, a.2, ans., p. 157;† also ST, IIIa.q19, a.1, ad.4.2127]

My wife and I will respect the second opinion from the hospital in St. Louis. We will accept it with all my heart because Joseph got his human right to get a chance to get a second opinion. When God wants to take his life He'll take it and nobody can say 'No' to God."

The Final Corruption of Human Embryology [Revised 6-25-15]

C. Ward Kischer
The history of science records certain events which have seriously impeded the search for truth. That is what science is: the search for truth. Sometimes the truth is obscured due to lack of information, or the means by which to measure; but, at other times, due to deliberate falsehoods. Alexander Kohn said it precisely: "The whole edifice of science is built upon honesty".
