Canada Alzheimer’s Society Endorses Euthanasia by Advance Directive

Canada is debating whether to permit euthanasia by advance directive, meaning, allowing people to sign instructions requiring they be killed by their doctor once they reach a determined level of incompetence. In other words, a former self will be given the power to order their current self dispatched — even, presumably, if the current self is not suffering and may not want to die.

When it comes to teens, parents typically tell them that it’s never a good idea to do something just because it’s popular. But at Teen Vogue, the shuttered magazine-turned-website, that’s exactly the argument being used in support of abortion.

Cruz’s claim, however, just isn’t true.

Mayor London Breed and Supervisor Vallie Brown, the author of the ordinance, announced the decision Wednesday. In addition to travel restrictions to those states, the city will not enter into any new contracts with companies headquartered in any of the 22 states.

A couple digging a grave for their baby found another infant buried alive

The couple were at the cemetery in northern India to bury their baby, who died minutes after birth.

As they dug a small grave for their child, their spade struck something hard. It was a clay pot and, from inside, they could hear an infant crying. That, local police say, is when the villagers discovered a newborn, buried alive.

She was no more than two or three days old, according to police in the state of Uttar Pradesh, who were quickly summoned to the cemetery on Oct. 10 and took the newborn to a hospital. The infant had respiratory problems and was put on a ventilator, said Alka Sgarna, the medical superintendent who treated her and spoke to CNN.

As part of a three-state traveling tour, the anti-abortion group Created Equal stopped by Eastern Michigan University on Wednesday. And as 89.1 WEMU’s Jorge Avellan tells us, they used a JumboTron TV screen to get their message across.
