Comment and information on timely matters.

Jack Kevorkian is otherwise nicknamed “Dr Death” and has been responsible for the ‘assisted suicide of more than 100 people.  Recently, during a CNN interview he told medical correspondent and physician Sanjay Gupta that he regretted being born.

Even though Gupta had not asked a single question, Kevorkian stated: "Sanjay, you want to know the single worst moment of my life?" 

"The single worst moment of my life ... was the moment I was born," Kevorkian said.

How tragically sad.  His attitude towards his own life explains a lot about his attitude to ‘helping’ people out of their lives.  One has to wonder what is the attitude of Australia’s own euthanasia proponent, Philip Nitschke?  Does he too feel being born is the worst moment of his life?

Interestingly, both Kevorkian and Nitschke were pathologists.

In the Courier Mail (30.4.10) an article headed "Court upholds punishment over handling of abortion" revealing a Brisbane abortionist, Adrienne Freeman has lost her appeal to have her registration as a medical practitioner/gynaecologist suspended.  She was found guilty of unsatisfactory professional conduct in 2009.

The Medical Board of Queensland allege that a lack of care and management was shown in the treating of a 30 year old woman given an abortion-inducing drug by Freeman.

Along with Sood (Sydney abortion doctor) who was sued in regards to her lack of care for a 23 year old woman (who was also give abortion-inducing drug), one can only wonder how many more hurt and injured women will it take before something is done to stamp out abortion and the apparent sub-standard of those in the abortion industry as shown by these two cases?

David Grundeman, abortionist in Australia, was quoted as saying at the 1993 Abortion Providers Conference in Seattle that they "can't attract good doctors to the abortion industry as they all have a death or malpractice suit behind them".  So in his own words, he admits they are not attracting the 'cream of the crop'.

It was with concern that we hear in the media of the newest portfolio created by the federal government – that of “population control” minister.

Reminiscent of ‘the sky is falling’  climate change hype, (and previously “the big chill” in the 60s), we now see mega media hype of population growth.

According to a Dr Aaron Bernstein (a paediatrician – ie baby doctor - who seems to want to do himself out of a job) population growth must be slashed to “protect human health and wellbeing”.  The irony is he states that “population growth is one of the two biggest threats to the future of life on earth”.

Seems that if we can’t scare people into not having children using the ‘earth is heating up’ theory, we need to go back to ‘too many people/the world will run out of food’  theory to achieve this result.

When any kind of difficulty has fallen in front of mankind, there have been those among us smart enough to work their way around the problem without employing methods that cause loss of life either before birth or to those old, ill or frail.  We hope that the normal, natural challenge of a growth in population can be the catalyst for clever, healthy life-giving solutions being found.

What have they won?  The hearts and minds of fellow travellers on life's journey, back towards embracing life in the womb as being worthy of protection and giving the unborn back their 'worthy' status.

Recently it has been reported in America that more and more people, particularly younger people, are calling themselves pro-life.  Even the abortion-aggressive organisation NARAL* has admitted this with the president Nancy Keenan saying that that she considers herself a member of the "post-menopausal militia" and being astounded by the number and youthfulness of those attending this year's March For Life in Washington DC.  (*NARAL stands for National Abortion Rights Action League).

Our own observations here in Queensland bear this out — just look at the rally photo in the latest Cherish Life newsletter (April 2010).

Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, gives a very simple response to this saying "pro-abortionists are motivated by anger; pro-lifers are motivated by love".  

Anger is a passing emotion — love is a decision.  Despite all the money thrown at the pro-abortion crowd, the often 'donation only' funded pro-life organisations are forging ahead claiming back the lost ground of young women's hearts, turning them back to their unborn children rather than the "me-first" attitude thrust on them as an 'out' by pro-abortion organisation.

Katie Walker, 24, Communications Director of the American Life League stated that "the ageing ‘postmenopausal militia’ should be shaking in their combat boots".  We echo those sentiments.

Further to the blog “Yep, abortion sure is safe – not!”, more information has come to light regarding the ‘quality’ of doctor the anaesthetist, a Dr James Latham Peters seems to be. 

The Medical Practitioners Board of Victoria had previously placed restrictions on Dr. Peters' license, limiting Dr. Peters' access to various drugs, as he was found to have a substance-abuse problem.  The Board had Dr. Peters participate in a program for substance-abusing doctors and he was required to submit to drug tests for a year, however, it later removed these restrictions and also concealed any publicly accessible record to protect his privacy.

The Melbourne abortuary, using the innocuous term “Day Surgery” in its title is part of Planned Parenthood of Australia Group.

In Seattle USA in 1993 at a conference for abortionists, ‘Dr’ David Grundmann stated that it was “hard to attract good doctors (to the practice of abortion) as most have a death or malpractice suit behind them”.  Seems nothing has changed.
