Richard Dawkins sparks outrage with claim that it’s 'immoral' to not abort fetus with Down syndrome

Prominent atheist Richard Dawkins triggered a wave of online backlash after telling a Twitter follower he would abort a fetus with Down syndrome "and try again."

"It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice," he wrote, responding to the woman’s hypothetical question Wednesday.

In the ensuing 24 hours, Prof. Dawkins defended his position amid an onslaught of criticism that saw some accuse him of advocating eugenics.

New Brunswick abortion industry alarmed by almost half of legislature attending March for Life

Almost half of New Brunswick's legislative assembly - 24 out of 55 MLAs - rallied at the province's annual March for Life last Thursday to defy national pressure exerted by the abortion lobby to begin funding the abortion in private clinics.

The abortion lobby called the head count an "alarming number to be sure." They responded by organizing a twitter campaign targeting the legislative members who came out publicly to support the pro-life marchers. It began today.

Child porn victim seeking $3.4M from the thousands of 'sick' men who have viewed pictures of her abuse

The notices arrive almost every day. They tell a young woman named Amy, as she is called in court papers, that someone has been charged with possessing child pornography. She was the child.

"It is hard to describe what it feels like to know that at any moment, anywhere, someone is looking at pictures of me as a little girl being abused by my uncle and is getting some kind of sick enjoyment from it," Amy, then 19, wrote in a 2008 victim impact statement. "It's like I am being abused over and over and over again."

Next month, the Supreme Court will consider what the men who took pleasure from viewing Amy's abuse must pay her.

Health Canada apologizes for blundering over existence of RU-486 application

OTTAWA, January 9, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Health Canada has apologized to a parliamentary health committee for giving it misinformation in a November meeting that no application to approve the controversial abortion drug RU-486 (Mifepristone) existed.

"Since my appearance, it has come to my attention that I did not have the correct information", stated Health Canada's Deputy Minister George Da Pont to Ben Lobb, chair on the Standing Committee on Health in a January 08 letter obtained by LifeSiteNews.com.

Da Pont had told the health committee in the November 25 meeting that there was no pending application to have RU-486 approved in Canada - on the very same day that the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) published an article stating that such an application existed.

Trudeau promises to decriminalize anal sex for 16-year-olds

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a homosexual news agency his government will be "moving on" lowering the age of consent on anal sex for consenting unmarried partners from 18 to 16 in Canada's Criminal Code.

The move is largely symbolic since Canada's higher courts have ruled the distinction discriminatory whenever it has been challenged in recent years but homosexual activists want the change since theoretically a charge could be laid at any time.

The question came up towards the end of a 16-minute video interview Trudeau gave to Daily Xtra on the eve of his participation in last weekend's Gay Pride Parade in Toronto.
