In the News – Dominican Republic

Earlier this year, a right to life amendment to the Constitution of the Dominican Republic took effect.  It states, "The right to the life is inviolable from conception until death. The death penalty cannot be established, pronounced, nor applied, in any case."  The amendment was proposed by the President and approved last year on a 167-32 voted in the legislature.

In the News – Right-to-Redress in Nebraska

The Stop Forced Abortion Alliance reports that a new Nebraska law has just passed which will allow women to sue doctors for psychological injuries related to unwanted, coerced or unsafe abortions, thus empowering women themselves to enforce decent standards. Judicial rules normally do not allow women to sue for psychological injuries after abortion unless they stem from a physical injury, but the Nebraska law eliminates this requirement and additionally offers a specific standard of care for pre-abortion screening. Abortion providers may be sued for negligence if they fail to ask a woman if she is being pressured, coerced or forced to have an abortion. They may also be held liable if they fail to screen women for other statistically significant risk factors that may put them at higher risk for psychological or physical complications following an abortion.

Member Group Request – Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum

Do you have an interest in the history of Susan B. Anthony? Are you looking for a way to use your talents in exchange for rent? The Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum in Adams, Massachusetts is looking for a full-time caretaker to live in the one-bedroom apartment above the museum. The successful candidate will receive free rent and some utilities in exchange for 10-15 hours per week of work as a Groundskeeper/Handy-person, Gift Shop Manager or Office Assistant. For more information, please email sally@susanbanthonybirthplace.org or call (413)743-7121 (emails preferred). Thank you!

The museum educates about the diverse social concerns of Susan B. Anthony, many of which will fit into what we today call the consistent life ethic.

Quotation of the Week

Sharon Lerner, “Nowhere to Hyde”

The Nation(a left-wing magazine which favors abortion availability), April 19, 2010

“The months of debate and politicking around the healthcare overhaul provided a glimpse of the political strength of the prochoice movement that hasn't been possible for years. The picture that emerged wasn't pretty, as supporters of choice found that they don't have the influence many assumed they did. . . . after the frenzied horse-trading that finally produced a law, women across the country were left with less access to the procedure and a seriously weakened power base from which to protect and advocate for abortion rights. ‘It's an enormous setback,’ says Laurie Rubiner, vice president for public policy for [Planned Parenthood].”
