Som oftest er en graviditet forbundet med glæde, forventninger og drømme om den lykkelige familieforøgelse. Glæden kan dog slukkes med et fingerknips, når en rutinescanning viser, at noget er galt.Med nutidens muligheder for fosterdiagnostik opstår der ikke sjældent et etisk dilemma, når det lille menneske i maven er sygt. Hvor naturen ville gå sin gang uden menneskelig indblanding, bliver vi nu stillet over for nogle valg og beslutninger, som vi gerne ville være foruden.Sorg, mit barn er forfatteren Lisas egen fortælling om den alt for tidlige fødsel af hendes datter Smilla. Fortællingen om et forløb, hvor Lisa mod sin vilje blev herre over sin egen datters liv og død. For Smilla ville måske kunne bæres graviditeten ud, men hun ville ikke kunne leve.Lisas historie er langt fra unik. Flere og flere bliver stillet over for de umenneskelige beslutninger, som skal træffes, når videnskaben møder det menneskelige sind.Sorg, mit barn er langt mere end blot en trist historie om et kort liv. Gennem interviews med fagpersoner – blandt andre en jordemoder, en antropolog, en filosof, en præst og flere psykologer – får forfatteren sat ord og følelser på svære begreber som skam, eksistens og etiske overvejelser.Bogen vil kunne bruges af alle, der har prøvet at miste et ufødt barn – og deres pårørende, men også af fagpersoner i berøring med de familier, der bliver stillet over for de svære beslutninger.

Abortion is the greatest manmade tragedy in history and will soon bring the world to its knees. White supremacists and elitists devised this depopulation technique to rid the world of "undesirables" in every race-especially blacks. To this day, the United Nations works overtime to ensure that minorities take advantage of contraceptives and easy abortions. But soon their schemes will come back to haunt us. In Justifiable Homicide? author A. C. Bolchoz reveals: The racist roots behind Planned Parenthood's abortion clinics in black neighborhoods The wealthy family that funds the discourse on abortion in order to control the debate Depopulationists' strategy to impose their plans on Latin American countries Legal abortion is indeed the cause of the greatest sustained loss of life per capita than any epidemic or world war. Under the guise of "reproductive health," this depopulation strategy will push America-and the world-toward economic collapse, or even worse.
Dr. Ginde thought she was just doing her job, a job that she loved. Suddenly, in 2015 her anonymity was snatched from her by an unscrupulous organization calling itself "the Center for Medical Progress." (CMP) Members of CMP used subterfuge to gain access to the offices and medical facilities of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, where Savita worked as Chief Medical Officer. Using deceit to enter into both the national office and many local Planned Parenthood organizations, these undercover and dishonorable shysters from CMP took surreptitious video of meetings and medical procedures, which they subsequently edited (even dubbing in their own audio!) to make it appear that Planned Parenthood was engaged in the sale of fetal tissue and body parts from human fetuses. Fake News at its best.The consequences for Savita were pretty horrible. First came the hateful e-mails. Then horribly unfounded phone calls.Then the death threats.To ensure her safety-and the safety of her two small children-Savita and her husband were forced to flee their home and live in hiding. Incredibly, amid these security concerns, she was called to appear before Congress to answer questions about the content of CMP's fictional videos.In this book Savita Ginde sets the record straight about her life and her work. The dedicated physician and mother of two presents her side of one of 2015's most shocking stories, explains why she's proud of the work she does, and offers her thoughts on how America should approach the debates about abortion and religion in general as we go forward.
Bruce Fleury's The Negro Project: Margaret Sanger's Diabolical, Duplicitous, Dangerous, Disastrous, and Deadly Plan for Black America is an in-depth and engrossing cautionary tale written by the author to serve as a warning to all Americans not to forget their history, and perform their due diligence in order to be able to see the not-so-obvious objectives behind the deeds of others. This work surrounds the author's realization of the harm Margaret Sanger and others like her brought upon the black community in the name of "women's health" through her organization, Planned Parenthood. He sees the black population as being in mortal danger of extinction if Americans don't wake up and fight the battle against abortion. Mr. Fleury raises some very compelling points in his exposé and has provided a great amount of research to support his findings. The reader will most certainly learn a historical lesson that was never taught in school. About the Author Bruce Fleury was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, and as a youngster moved to Detroit, Michigan, with his parents and five siblings, where he spent 56 years. Twenty of those years he was employed at Ford Motor Co. He currently resides with his wife, Janette, in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. Mr. Fleury likes to think of himself as a student of history and is strongly pro-life, the reason for his writing of this book. He is also keenly interested in politics, sports, and current events.
Kaler examines how "modern" contraceptive technologies, such as the pill and the Deop-Provera injection, were embroiled in gender and generation conflicts in Zimbabwe during the 1960s and 1970s.
From the author of I Hate Men, a personal and political reflection on abortion rights.Discussion about abortion and associated rights are often limited to either `anti-abortion¿ or `pro-choice¿, the latter of which focuses on the importance of having the right to choose, rather than on what that right means for real people.In this timely essay, Pauline Harmange provides an intimate, detailed account of her abortion. Reminiscent of Annie Ernaux¿s Happening, Abortion is nuanced, complex, honest, and precise. Harmange gives voice to the emotions, reflections, and contradictions that someone could experience when they choose to terminate a pregnancy.At a time in which women¿s reproductive rights are being called into question around the world, Abortion is a clarion call, a powerful personal testimony, and a resolutely political vision: to restore power to our experiences, all our experiences, by sharing them, and to transform society for the better.
In Dershowitz on Killing: How the Law Decides Who Shall Live and Who Shall Die, Alan Dershowitz—New York Times bestselling author and one of America’s most respected legal scholars—examines the subjects of death, life, and the law. Alan Dershowitz has been called “one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America” by Politico and “the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights” by Newsweek. His legal career as a criminal defense lawyer has been deeply involved with death and life decisions.Dershowitz on Killing is a timely examination of issues and questions that are front and center in today’s society. Employing a philosophical, moral, religious, and cultural lens to the legal aspects surrounding death and life, Dershowitz elucidates the role of government to determine who shall live and who shall die in declaring wars, ordering executions, authorizing deadly force, permitting or denying abortions, providing or mandating vaccines, controlling climate change, allowing or refusing asylum for endangered migrants, and other life and death rulings. He notes that when the government decides these choices, it is asked to do so by first determining whether a “right” is involved, because rights trump mere interest, just as constitutional restrictions trump legislative and executive actions. Dershowitz on Killing asserts that the rules governing death and life decisions should reflect the irreversibility of death. It is essential reading for anyone interested in or concerned about how these decisions are allocated among state and federal; executive, legislative, and judicial; private and governmental; religious and secular institutions—and how people in a democracy, through the power of the ballot, have the ultimate say in these critical decisions.
With reproductive freedom under unprecedented attack, Choice Words, edited by poet Annie Finch, takes back the cultural conversation on abortion.
A fiery feminist manifesto from the Chilean performance collective who led the rallying cry for today's mass feminist movement across South America.
Representing Abortion analyses how artists, writers, performers, and activists make abortion visible, audible, and palpable within contexts dominated by anti-abortion imagery centred on the fetus and the erasure of the pregnant person. This creative work is significant as it challenges the polarisation of conversations about abortion.
