A charge has been made that 11 men of varying ages, (none under 65) had their deaths helped along by being undernourished.A CORONER is demanding a public inquiry into claims that 11 hospital patients were deliberately starved to death. He believes that it could be Britain’s first case of forced “mass euthanasia”.

Terri RESPONDING to her father

Dirty Harry is posting a tape of Terri Schiavo responding to her father, a tape made just two years ago. Listen to it here.Terri is clearly hearing and responding to her father. This is heartbreaking.While you're at it, if you can bear it, after listening to Terri and understanding once again that she is being made to die, for NO GOOD REASON, listen to Bill O' Reilly's rant against the ACLU. I don't usually watch him, but I'm glad I watched it. I'd been ignoring the ACLU for a while, but clearly … [Read more...]

I have set before you life and death…

The Church of Good Health: Body, Mind, Spirit? Body…Body…Body?

It's curious to find my first post today to be about health, since I have succumbed to some raggedy-assed virus of a sort. I haven't exactly crashed and burned as in the past, but it's been a logey and cruddy sort of day. But enough about me.Ann Althouse has an interesting post on a recent statement by the Vatican. Althouse herself, crediting the Vat with having a made a good point, says: Perhaps as an ethical matter, anyone contemplating something like cosmetic surgery, ought to think again and … [Read more...]

Can the bloggers save a woman’s life?

Suppose you are alive, but paralysed. Your mind seems to be in working order, but you can't say much. You're happy to see your family who come to visit you all the time, and you do make every effort you can to respond to your surroundings. You enjoy the sunshine in the morning, when your nurses open the curtains, and you like the sound of rain falling upon the window, and at night, you can see the moon travel across the sky, as you watch and wonder. You like to blow kisses and receive them.Some … [Read more...]

So, a human embryo is a human being. That makes sense!

Aimee, an eagle-eyed reader sent this good news to me, and I appreciate it. I'd somehow missed the story.A frozen embryo destroyed in a Chicago fertility clinic was a human being whose parents are entitled to file a wrongful-death lawsuit, a Cook County judge ruled Friday.Attorneys on both sides of the abortion issue said it was the first such ruling they had heard of as the country debates whether stem cells derived from embryos can be used in research and medicine.Alison Miller and Todd … [Read more...]

The only 100% effective birth control is abstinence

Two of my friends got pregnant while on the pill. This lady in the UK did, too, and now she is pregnant with quadruplets and she seems sensible of the blessing.If God wants to bless you with children, He's gonna bless you with children, no matter what birth control you're using. You can accept it with open arms, or reject it.But really, I don't know anyone in the world who can afford to reject a blessing. Not really. The problem is, we've done such a poor job of teaching that a baby is a … [Read more...]

Another woman dies for the Coming of Love

The Seventh Sign is not a very good movie but one scene has always stayed with me. Demi Moore, pregnant with the babe that could possibly be the Second Coming is in hard labor and things are tense...someone is going to have to die, and the doctor asks her, "will you die for him? Will you die for him?" Moore answers yes, and the babe is born with a good strong, healthy sounding wail, while she dies.I remembered that scene because as a mother, I understood it, deep down inside. It's a question … [Read more...]

Got a cleft palate? Well, you should just die, then.

This UK author dares to suggest that there is something immoral about systematically destroying babies who might show any sign of imperfection. We're not talking aborting infants with Downs Syndrome, or fatal deformities (I have issues with those abortions, too, but this is not the time or place) we're talking about babies with cleft palates for criminy's sake! To abort an unborn child beyond 24 weeks' gestation is recognised in British law as infanticide – but only if the child is thought to be … [Read more...]

“Whatever,” he smiled…

So, Robert Burns had it quite right. There are events in our lives that defy planning or anticipation. Whether it is the birth of a child, the start of a new job, or the expected death of a loved one after a long illness, “the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry…” or, in the case of my family, crumble under the weight of a grief so heavy and complete that no amount of mental, material or emotional preparation was sufficient to deal with the reality of my brother’s death.In the month … [Read more...]
