‘Abortion Boat’ Set To Dock
And Treat Women In
Muslim-Majority Morocco

International Business Times (UK), by Jacey Fortin

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 10/2/2012 3:21:31 PM

Moroccan women seeking to terminate a pregnancy will have a brief chance to do so this week, when an ‘abortion ship’ pulls into port to offer its services to women in this Muslim-majority North African country. A Dutch organization called the Women on Waves Foundation, or WoW, runs the controversial service. From a tiny makeshift clinic mounted on a floating vessel, its staff dispenses abortion pills and medical advice to women who are up to six weeks pregnant.

Comments:
I don't care what your position on abortion is, this is just plain morbid & macabre.

This is the way to stir up trouble in another Muslim country which has been comparatively peaceful.

Just wondering... what is it with the Dutch and their fascination with causing death?

Do the Dutch ever help anyone to live?

What a sad culture... they "treat" women by mulching their unborn babies. How sweet.

Oh please...they only will do it up to 6 weeks. Besides, it will help cut down on their exploding birth rates which they are using to spread Islam and their terror around the world. Sorry, but if a person feels the need to do this in the first trimester, it should be their choice. It is not a full, complete person yet. And ironically, many of you have no problem wiping out entire Islamic countries full of already living extremist muslims (so many times I have seen posts stating they should turn these places into parking lots, etc.)...why do a few early term abortions among these people bother you so much? One final thing...it is likely that the majority of those who will seek this help will be women who are badly abused or have been raped.

#8, a few questions:
1. How do you know all the babies that will be killed by abortion would have turned out to be terrorists?
2. If the baby isn't a baby in the first trimester, how did it get to be a baby when it is born?
3. You equate killing an innocent baby with killing terrorists?
Yikes.

The irony of a handle that purports to be '4' justice is not lost on those who don't require human beings to attain a certain age before they are acknowledged as humans. The moment daddy's sperm met mama's egg, it was never going to result in anything but a human being.

A western Culture of Death that supports snuffing out life for convenience has no superiority, moral or otherwise, over an Islamic Culture of Death that would behead you for getting pregnant in the first place.

Osama bin Laden´s son-in-law, the voice of fiery al-Qaida propaganda videotapes after the Sept. 11 attacks, was convicted Wednesday of conspiring to kill Americans for his role as the terror group´s spokesman. The verdict came after about five hours of deliberation in the case against Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, the highest-ranking al-Qaeda figure to face trial on U.S. soil since the attacks. The Kuwaiti imam had testified during a three-week trial that he answered bin Laden´s request in the hours after the attacks to speak on the widely circulated videos used to recruit new followers willing to go on suicide missions like

BRUSSELS - President Barack Obama says he´s concerned that some NATO allies are reducing their spending on defense. Obama says for collective defense to work, everybody has to pitch in. He says that´s necessary to ensure that NATO remains a credible force in the world. Obama says NATO can´t just be a U.S. or British exercise. Obama spoke at a news conference with European Union leaders in Brussels amid concern about Russia´s annexation of the Ukrainian region of Crimea. Obama says the situation in Ukraine, in his words, "reminds us that our freedom isn´t free. Obama meets later Wednesday with NATO Secretary General Anders

Bigger is often better, at least when it comes to being an animal.

"When you shrink that affects what can eat you, what you can eat, how successful you´re going to be at reproducing. Bigger is generally better." Lips collaborated with other scientists to get a better understanding on why exactly salamanders were shrinking. The most likely culprit: global warming. As temperatures heat up, so do the animals´ metabolisms. Lips and her colleagues determined that

At a large factory in Nairobi, Kenya, about 300 Kenyans will soon begin building small, black cookstoves that one islander hopes will alter the face of Africa.(snip)Burn’s new factory was made possible in part by $1 million in financing from General Electric and a $3 million loan from the Overseas Private Investment Corp.

When NASA astronauts were suiting up to go to space in the 1960s, they had to make a big decision before they explored the world above us: How large of a man are you? Getting it wrong could damage the mission. According to a former NASA life support system expert who helped construct space diapers, otherwise known as Maximum Absorbency Garment systems, each astronaut in the Gemini and Apollo programs had to wear a condom-type sheath with a hole at the end for urination inside their suits.

A new species of praying mantis, Liturgusa algorei, indigenous to the thick rain forests of Peru has been named after former vice president Al Gore; one of 19 new species of the insect recently identified by entomologist Gavin Svenson. The discoveries came after Svenson, curator of invertebrate zoology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, decided to search through both old collections at museums and embark on field expeditions into the forests of Central and South America. Unlike the patient, zen-like praying mantis we´re all familiar with, these equatorial cousins take a decidedly different approach to both hunting and self-preservation. "This group,

President Obama, like most Kenyan politicians, loves beating about the bush and avoiding the real issue. In Kenya, we all know the big problem is corruption, but we are addressing virtually everything else but corruption. And so in America, our cousin President Obama dances around serious issues like the typical Kenyan he is. When Russia invaded Georgia in 2008, Obama thundered with indignation and a fulsome, righteous — and justified — anger. The people of Georgia thought he would follow through on his fiery words with real action to set their country free of Russia’s torment, but wapi! With Cousin Barry, as with

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company
