If you have trusted that the diagnosis of “brain death”, which is a pre-condition for the harvesting of human organs for donation, is reliable, think again.
Trenton McKinley’s parents had just signed papers to donate their son’s organs to other children. Doctors had been telling them that their boy was already dead, and that there was a line-up of five children who needed one of his organs.
But then, 13-year-old Terrence moved his hand. He moved his feet. And then he regained consciousness. Continue reading “Boy awakes from coma as parents sign papers to “donate” his organs”
When the Netherlands, and soon afterwards Belgium, became the first countries in the world, it was all about “freedom”: adult people suffering from incurable diseases, it was argued, should be free to make their own choice when and how to die. Later on, the criterion of “incurability” was given up, so that euthanasia can also be imparted to those suffering from chronic diseases, the elderly, the mentally disabled, or even those with no sickness at all. But it was always maintained that euthanasia should be an act of “self-determination”.
The UK does not even have a law on euthanasia. But never mind – it has now been turned into a country where the public health system, with the support of the judiciary, can forcibly euthanize persons who have never asked for it, and against the will of their legal representatives.

Thomas Neuwirth, the Austrian singer starlet (and Eurovision winner) known under his pseudonym “Conchita Wurst”, has informed the public that “since many years” he is HIV-positive. With this coming out, he is reacting to a blackmail by one of his sodomite “ex-friends”, choosing to make the fact known before the blackmailer did. Once again we are catching a rather nasty glimpse of what “friendship” must be like in the LGBT community.
While any attempt at blackmailing must be firmly rejected, it nevertheless should be noted that in Neuwirth’s case there is a legitimate interest of the wider public to be informed. Being a carrier of HIV-infection may be an entirely private matter for everyone else, but it is not in the case of Conchita, given that he/she is publicly promoting and advertising the very lifestyle that carries an extremely high risk of HIV-infection.
Not that in itself Mr. Neuwirth’s HIV-infection had any claim to newsworthiness. In fact, who would ever have expected otherwise? But it is intellectually dishonest and grossly irresponsible to promote the LGBT-lifestyle and keep silent about the risks and consequences. Therefore it is good that the illusion that sodomy is risk-free and “normal” has once again – just as in so many other cases – been debunked.
Neuwirth hastes to reassure the public that thanks to the treatment he is receiving, he has a very low prevalence of HIV in his blood, “nearly below the threshold of detectability”. Apparently he is still on the lookout for persons to have sex with. If anyone catches the infection, the public health system is expected to take care.
The ECtHR’s decision in the case of Ratzenböck and Seydl v. Austria has become final. With this decision, the Court had decided that legislation that reserves access to so-called civil partnerships” to homosexual couples and access to marriage to heterosexual couples did not constitute discrimination. It therefore turned down the application of a different-sex couple from Austria who had wanted to conclude a “civil partnership”. Continue reading “ECtHR confirms: homo-partnerships are only for homosexuals (and, implicitly, marriage is only for man and woman)”
Austria’s Social Democrats will in future probably think twice before they give their back-up to any new anti-discrimination measures. The country’s Federal Administrative Court has condemned the State to pay more than 300.000 Euro in damages to a man who had unsuccessfully applied for a Director post in the Federal Ministry of Infrastructure. Although according to an objective evaluation he had been (by a very narrow margin) the best qualified among the applicant, the job was given to a female colleague thanks to the insistence of the minister at the time, a Socialist named Mrs. Doris Bures, who is known for radical feminist positions.
Mrs. Bures’s successor as Minister, Mr. Norbert Hofer, considers that it is not the State who should be held responsible for Mrs. Bures’s actions, and is examining possible legal action to recover the damage payment from her.
According to a report in the Austrian newspaper “Der Standard”, the radical Feminist agenda promoted by the European Parliament’s ultra-radical FEMM committee is meeting increasing resistance from EU citizens – remarkably strong resistance indeed, given that average Europeans usually do not care too much about what is going on inside the EP.
Austrian MEP Angelica Mlinar, Member of the “liberal” (in fact rabidly intolerant)ALDE group, is reported as saying that the FEMM Committee gets between 5000 and 6000 unsolicited letters every month from European citizens, asking it to stop pushing its radical “Anti-Discrimination”-, Feminist, and “LGBT” agendas.
(That must be when there are no petitions by CitizenGo are going on…)
The Radicals however do not intend to refrain from acting against the electorate’s will.
The Irish Supreme Court has just issued a ruling in a case involving a Nigerian father who fought a deportation order on the basis that he had fathered an as-yet-unborn Irish child that had the right to have its father live in the same country.
means that while the unborn have a constitutional right to life, inserted through the 8th amendment, they do not enjoy any other rights until they are born. In particular, in the case at hand the unborn child does not have the right to have a family life with its father once it will be born, which makes it possible for the immigration authority to enforce the man’s deportation to Nigeria.
