Indiana’s pro-life law blocked by circuit court judge

A pro-life law in Indiana was blocked by Owen County Judge Kelsey Hanlon, after it had been in effect for just one week.

The Indiana law protected most preborn children from abortion, though it permitted abortion up to 10 weeks in cases of rape and incest, to protect the health of the mother (though intentional killing is not medically necessary), and in cases where the preborn child was diagnosed with a lethal anomaly. It also required that abortions be committed only in hospitals or surgical centers, instead of in standalone abortion facilities.

Lawsuits were filed by both Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, and Hanlon ruled in their favor, putting an injunction in place to block the law. According to the Associated Press (AP), abortion facilities are already preparing to begin committing abortions again.

“While some people falsely claim that a preborn baby at 6 weeks’ gestation is just a clump of cells, science demonstrates the baby is already a complex human being,” said Dr. Tara Sander Lee, senior fellow and director of life sciences at the nonprofit Charlotte Lozier Institute. “A preborn baby’s heart is actively beating at 6 weeks and will have already beat nearly 16 million times by 15 weeks. In fact, at 6 weeks’ gestation, the baby’s heart rate is about 110 beats per minute, which can be easily detected by ultrasound.”

The Republican female’s pregnancy and newborn baby had not stopped her opponents from slamming her stance against abortion.
“House Democrats and Emilia Sykes have hit a new low attacking a new mother,” Tyler Q. Houlton, spokesman for the Republican’s campaign, told The Daily Signal. “Democrats will do anything to distract Ohioans from their failed economic agenda and soft-on-crime policies.

Chrissy Teigen’s Miscarriage Can’t be an Abortion, Because Abortions Purposefully Kill Babies

In an induced abortion, “the intention is that the fetus should not survive, and the process of abortion should achieve this.”[5] On the other hand, separation of the mother and fetus is “medically indicated” when there is some condition of the mother or the fetus which requires separation of the two in order to protect the life of one or the other (or both).[6]

Legendary French director dies by assisted suicide as nation considers its legalization

Jean-Luc Godard, a legendary French director, has died at the age of 91. A pioneer of the French New Wave film movement in the 1960s, he was beloved by many, and left a huge mark on the film industry. Yet Godard’s death is raising troubling questions, as he had traveled to Switzerland to undergo assisted suicide — allegedly not because he was ill or dying, but because he was simply tired of living. And on the heels of his death, France is considering legalizing assisted suicide as well.
