Quick News Roundup 08/06/10
International News: In an odd twist, after liberalizing laws on abortion, an area in Spain has now banned bullfighting. By 2014, bullfighting will be illegal within the border of Catalonia. Pro-life activists find it ironic and disappointing that bulls will have greater protection than the unborn. In Brazil, popular soccer player Bruno Fernandes das Dores de Souza has been arrested for murdering an ex-girlfriend. Why did he do it? He had gotten her pregnant and she refused to get an abortion. According to Sports Untapped, “…she refused to [get an abortion] and this allegedly enraged Bruno. Samudio then suddenly disappeared in June as she was in the process of taking the case to court to try and prove Bruno was the father and to obtain child support from him.”
Site Update: In case you missed it, SecularProLife has released their new sex education program entitled Grow Your Knowldge. It’s a comprehensive, pro-life sex-education tool that provides useful information on fetal development along the way. Check it out and pass it along to others to spread the word.
Random Personal Comment: As some of you may be aware, in addition to blogging here, I blog about Maryland and conservative politics at Old Line Elephant. From my work there, I was recently asked to moderate a debate between Republican Congressional candidates in Maryland’s 2nd Congressional Districct. For those of you in Maryland or specifically in MD-02, check out the debate. There are a number of goood, Republican candidates who are far better on pro-life issues than the incumbent.
Well that explains a few things 🙂
