Iceland Eliminates People With Down Syndrome

Iceland Eliminates People With Down Syndrome

BS News reported earlier this week that Iceland is leading the world in “eradicating Down syndrome births.”One might be forgiven for assuming that Iceland has developed an innovative treatment for the chromosomal disorder. It turns out Iceland’s solution is much simpler, and much more sinister: using prenatal testing and abortion to systematically exterminate children with Down syndrome. This isn’t progress; it’s eugenics.Prenatal testing is optional in Iceland, but the government mandates that doctors notify women of that option. About 85 percent of expectant mothers undergo the test, and...

Chemical Abortion Is the New Challenge for Pro-Lifers | National Review

Chemical Abortion Is the New Challenge for Pro-Lifers | National Review

part of a broader effort to expand access to chemical abortion, House Democrats are demanding that the Food and Drug Administration remove safety protocols for mifepristone, a drug most commonly prescribed for abortions during the first three months of pregnancy.Under its current policy, the FDA requires women to obtain the first of two chemical-abortion pills in person from a health-care professional rather than via telemedicine. The in-person mandate is intended as a safety precaution to ensure that women are monitored and have access to follow-up care as needed.Last week, several...

Biden Aims to Restore Planned Parenthood’s Title X Funding | National Review

Senate Democrats voted last week to as head of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), they were putting their weight behind the Biden administration’s plan to undo all of the pro-life policies implemented under President Donald Trump.The first policy to go, it appears, will be the “Protect Life” rule, a regulation enacted by Trump’s HHS Department in 2019 to freeze a portion of federal funding that had previously flowed freely to abortion providers across the country.Shortly after Becerra’s confirmation, the Biden administration announced that it would begin work to reverse this...

Exclusive: Republicans Demand Biden Withdraw Becerra’s Nomination to Head HHS | National Review

In a letter to President Joe Biden this morning, Republicans in the House and Senate are demanding that he withdraw the nomination of California attorney general Xavier Becerra to head the Department of Health and Human Services. Becerra’s confirmation hearing in the Senate is scheduled for tomorrow.“Mr. Becerra’s lack of healthcare experience, enthusiasm for replacing private health insurance with government-run Medicare-for-all, and embrace of radical policies on immigration, abortion, and religious liberty, render him unfit for any position of public trust, and especially for HHS...

Texas Successfully Defunds Planned Parenthood | National Review

Biden Raises the Stakes on the Becerra Nomination | National Review

At the same time that he rescinded the Mexico City policy last week, President Joe Biden also directed the Department of Health and Human Services to consider undoing another pro-life policy, which prohibits abortion providers from claiming federal funding under the Title X family-planning program.Under the Trump-administration regulation, abortion groups must financially separate their provision of abortion from any other services or else forgo Title X funding. In all likelihood, that policy will be thrown out by the incoming HHS, especially if the Senate votes to confirm Biden’s nominee,...
