On World Down Syndrome Day, noting a Down’s holocaust

Iceland (MNN) — Today is World Down Syndrome Day, and people are celebrating friends and family with Down Syndrome and the joy they bring. Meanwhile, there is a Down Syndrome holocaust taking place in abortion facilities across the globe.
Earlier this year, Dr. Peter McParland spoke at the Citizens Assembly in Ireland advocating for a new, non-invasive prenatal blood test (NIPT). In his presentation, Dr. McParland praised prenatal screening in Iceland that has led to the abortion of 100 percent of babies diagnosed with Down Syndrome over five years.
That statistic comes from Iceland’s reports given from 2008-2012. But if the trend has continued since 2012, that would come to nearly a decade of all prenatally diagnosed Down Syndrome babies being aborted in Iceland.

Danger keeps Omaha , Nebraska doctor from treating patients in South Sudan. Instead, he’ll treat them in Uganda

Today, Joseph Dumba, an Omaha family practitioner with an incredible back story, will begin his annual medical mission trip to Africa — his 11th.
But instead of going to his native South Sudan, where he has established a clinic that is funded in part by Omahans, Dr. Dumba will be in neighboring Uganda.
This year, it is simply too dangerous and difficult to go to South Sudan, where famine has added to the misery of civil war. Plus, many of the South Sudanese people who need Dr. Dumba’s care aren’t there anyway.

British lawmakers should stay out of the dress code business 

LONDON – British lawmakers focused on footwear Monday, asking whether employers should be able to make women wear high heels as part of a corporate dress code.
Members of Parliament were to debate a ban on mandatory workplace high heels, in response to a petition started by a receptionist who was sent home without pay for wearing flat shoes.
Nicola Thorp was told in December 2015 that her shoes were unacceptable for a temporary assignment in London with finance firm PwC.
Her employment agency, Portico, had a dress code specifying that female workers must wear non-opaque tights, have hair with “no visible roots,” wear “regularly re-applied” makeup — and appear in shoes with a heel between 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10 centimeters) high.

( Billy’s thoughts – This sounds like big brother. No government should tell a place of business they can not have some kind of dress code. These British lawmakers are wasting the time, and money of the people they are serving. Read the rest of this story. )

The lies that entangle North Korea

North Korea (MNN) — North Korea shows up in the headlines for a variety of reasons. Most recently, it’s been the country’s nuclear arms activity, and the murder of Kim Jong Un’s half-brother, Kim Jong Nam. But if we want to really characterize this country in a phrase, it’s safe to say that North Korea is tangled in lies and deception.

Patrick Klein of Vision Beyond Borders says he’s seen this deception first hand.
On one visit to the country, Klein asked his tour guide several basic questions about Kim Jon Un and his family. The tour guide responded by saying that information had not been released by the government. The people were kept from knowing even the most basic biographical information about their leader.
“There’s this real mystery about it that they can’t have information about his personal life, they can’t know anything about his marital status. We do know he’s been very brutal, even killing his uncle in North Korea for working too closely with the Chinese,” Klein says.
And yet, once outside the country, anyone can do a quick Google search to learn more about the family.

EVANGELICAL RIO MAYOR SKIPS CARNIVAL, DRAWING IRE AND PRAISE

President Bush ( who I like ) still doesn’t get it on Islam, and so much more,as he attacks President Trump 

President Bush who did many good things for America, use to drive me nuts, when he went out of his way to say Islam was a peaceful faith. Yes there are people in that faith who are peaceful. However those who truly are committed to the faith are not peaceful. They are the ones who are making it hard for Jewish people, and followers of Christ to live around the world.Thse who are truly committed Islam wants Israel, and America destroyed. They want every follower of Jesus,along with every Jewish soul dead.

  I am sorry to write President Bush still feels the same way. In this video he once again defends Islam. He also seems to let it be known that he does not agree with President Trump on trying to keep others from our land who might harm our nation. 

   Whatever happened to the rule of former presidents not attacking sitting presidents. Where was Bush when President Obama was destroying America with his radical left agenda. I didn’t hear anything out of him. So was I in dream land? Did you hear anything out of President Bush when Obama was trying to destroy our nation. 

Evil does not rest, The International Fund for Evil

Evil does not rest. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.
You might remember that President Trump reinstated the “Mexico City Policy,” which bans U.S. funding to foreign non-government organizations that provide or promote abortions.
As I said at the time, it’s great news. What I didn’t expect was that other nations would rush in to replace the loss of U.S. funds for overseas abortions.
That’s what happened. So far, as reported at the Stream.org, eight countries have agreed to establish an international fund to kill babies: Canada, Denmark, Sweden, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Finland, and Cape Verde.
As one Swedish official bloviated, if women can’t “control their own bodies,” that would have serious consequences for “gender rights” and “global poverty eradication.”
And, I’ll add human life eradication.
While there’s comfort in knowing our tax dollars won’t be funding abortions overseas, evil does not rest. Nor should we.
