Forced sterilization is legal in 30+ US states.
Most Americans believe that forced
sterilization is a human rights abuse that ended decades ago. But a report from the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) has released a report which shows that more than 30 states have laws which permit the sterilisation of disabled women.
“Forced Sterilization of Disabled People in the United States,” reveals that:
- 31 states plus Washington, D.C., have laws explicitly allowing forced sterilization;
- States have continued to pass forced sterilization laws well into recent years, with the most recent laws being passed in 2019 in Iowa and Nevada;
- Out of the states that allow forced sterilization, about half require the person being sterilized to be under guardianship, while the remaining states allow for forced sterilization of both people who are and are not under guardianship;
- 17 states allow forced sterilizations on disabled children, 3 states explicitly prohibit it, and the remaining 11 states and Washington, D.C. do not have specific language on minors.
These laws affect mostly people with developmental and intellectual disabilities. They also affect people with disabilities related to mental health. Men can also be sterilized under these laws, but the laws mostly target women.
So- called ‘gold standard’ abortion pill regimen causes serious adverse reactions, report shows
A watchdog group summary of spontaneously reported adverse reactions from the so-called “gold
standard” abortion pill regimen shows numerous reports of serious events resulting in hospitalization.
The summary shared 43 reports of “adverse reactions” from Mifegymiso, the name in Canada for the combined use of Mifepristone and Misoprostol. The regimen is on the World Health Organization’s (WHO) list of essential drugs and is considered the “gold standard” for early medical abortion, according to the WHO.
Many of the women were indicated as having been hospitalized, and some of them suffered from what is listed on the Mifegymiso drug guide as “very common side effects” (experienced by more than 10 percent of users): nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and chills/fever.
In conformity with the report results, “severe hemorrhage” is considered a “common” side effect (experienced by 1 percent to 10 percent of users), as is fainting.
Reports from around the world indicate that women who take abortion pills are being hospitalized in the thousands. Freedom of information requests found that more than 10,000 women, or 1 in 17, required hospital treatment in England in 2020 after suffering serious complications from taking abortion pills at home.
Operation Rescue president Troy Newman warns us that “abortion drugs carry a much higher complication rate than even surgical abortions, which are both far more dangerous than the Abortion Cartel will admit.”
Overturning Roe and Putting Planned Parenthood Out of Business Will Help Women. Here’s How.
“We live in a country with about 3,000 pregnancy resource centers
and approximately 400 maternity homes, offering free services and tangible support to women and their families during pregnancy and motherhood.” And with the Supreme Court’s anticipated ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson appearing to potentially affect Roe v. Wade negatively, if more people knew about these services, it could put Planned Parenthood and company out of business … which is why spreading the good news of help for those pregnant and
parenting is at the top of the Pro-Life Agenda.
A great example of our movement’s outreach is Students for Life of America’s initiative Standing with You: a website dedicated solely to helping pregnant and parenting women find the resources they need to be successful along with people standing by to talk and assist women who reach out. The national and local resources include assistance with housing, finances, food, clothing, childcare, counseling, etc. Anything that a woman might need mentally, spiritually, or physically during her pregnancy and thereafter can be found through the numerous resources listed at Standing with You—and all at no cost to her.
The abortion lobby might dare to suggest we won’t help women in a Post-RoeAmerica, but that’s kind of our thing. We believe women don’t need abortions to succeed—they just need support.
Empowering women begins with believing in them to be more than one thing at a time, and it includes helping them achieve their goals. To find the truth about the vast network of people standing with pregnant and parenting women, women will need to look past the fear tactics that Corporate Abortion employs. But no woman needs to stand alone in a Post-Roe America – or today.
Planned Parenthood Kills More Black People Than Anyone Else.
Systemic racism. We’re (falsely) told it’s “baked into American law and Society.” But pro-abortion activists refuse to see it in the one industry that
deliberately kills for a living. Yet somehow, the billion-dollar abortion chain, Planned Parenthood, has convinced the black community that killing our Posterity is a social good.
Planned Parenthood has declared itself an “anti-racist” organization, however abortion is the number one killer in the black community. It outnumbers the top twenty causes of death, combined! Abortions kill 110.5 times more black lives than HIV, 33 times more than homicides, 4.7 times more than cancer, and 3 times more than heart disease.
For every 1,000 born alive, there were 1,226 killed by abortion in2018. The black community is the only demographic where there are more induced deaths than births.
“Black people are our base!” Planned Parenthood declared in anemail during COVID. That’s the result of a century of systemic racism.
Planned Parenthood constantly casts itself as the savior of the black community. A Savior comes to give life, not destroy it.
YES, NOVAVAX USED HEK293, AN ABORTED FETAL CELL LINE.
Despite Novavax’s public statements that its COVID-19 vaccine does not have any connection to abortion-derived cell lines, evidence from a private letter and Novavax’s own published study shows that the HEK293 aborted fetal cell line was used in the testing phase.
In a recent Christianity Today article, which erroneously claimed the vaccine is “the first without links to aborted fetal cell lines,” a Novavax spokesperson was quoted as saying:
“No human fetal-derived cell lines or tissue, including HEK293 cells, are used in the development, manufacture, or production of the Novavax COVID-19 vaccine candidate, NVX-CoV2373.”
Though this statement is accurate, it is at the same time, deceptive. Novavax used an ethical cell line obtained from moth cells in the production and manufacture of its vaccine. However, the HEK293 cell line was used in the testing phase, as revealed in a scientific paper published by Novavax itself. The HEK293 cell line was originally harvested from the kidney of an aborted baby girl in 1973.
There is a connection to abortion present in Novavax’s vaccine—one that is completely unnecessary. Novavax, like all biotech companies, has available to them ethical cell lines that are free of any connection to abortion.
The Personhood Alliance encourages the biotech and pharmaceutical industries to publicly commit to using ethically derived cell lines in the design, production, and testing of vaccines and other therapeutics.
This, of course, includes Novavax.
