Focus on the good

Some good news from across the border.

SASKATOON, SA, October 22, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Yesterday morning, before delivering an address at TCU Place in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, for a crowd of about 2,000, former U.S. President George W. Bush joined the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association (SPLA) at a business breakfast where the pro-life group presented him with an award for his "very public determination to protect the unborn while he served two terms as President."

The Humanity of the Unborn Child Pro-Life Award, as it is called, was given to the former President "in recognition of [his] resolve and initiatives in the protection of human life." The award, said the pro-life organization, "is presented to an international politician, but also with the intention of making pro-life progress here domestically, for example to get our provincial government to stop using tax dollars to fund abortions."

The Deep Sedation and Slow Death of Europe

"deep sedation as currently practiced in the Netherlands has become a widespread form of passive euthanasia. Dr. Jochemsen explained that the cause of death nowadays is usually not the disease but lack of food and hydration -- in short, patients are routinely starved and dehydrated while drugged into an unconscious state, a fact not revealed by the doctors.
Needless to say, these deaths while under deep sedation are not counted as euthanasia in Holland, even though they account for more than four times as many deaths as the "official" euthanasia numbers. (For more information on these issues, visit www.lindeboominstituut.nl.)"

Food for thought: "Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial." Matt 26.
