A forced abortion, imposed to a woman seven months pregnant, to meet the "One-child-policy", has provoked strong indignation in China. The officials who ordered the termination of this pregnancy, have been arrested after Feng Jianmei, the 27 year old woman forced to abort, hang in internet a creepy image of the fetus, totally covered in blood, lying next to her in the bed of the hospital where he was admitted. In China, to exercise control over the population, more than 400 million children have been killed through abortion.
In 2008 The Royal College of Psychiatrists, an illustrious professional institution in the UK, published a report warning that having an abortion might damage a woman's mental health. This changed the College's 1994 position that the risks of developing mental health problems were less for women who have abortions than for those who carried on with a pregnancy.
The College recommended that women should be counselled about the risk that having an abortion posed to their mental health, and pointed out that a woman could not give 'informed consent' to an abortion without having this made clear to them: “Consent cannot be informed without the provision of adequate and appropriate information regarding the possible risks and benefits to physical and mental health”.
In 2007 the actress Emma Beck, a young British performer of 30 years, had a gestation of twins and had an abortion. Soon she hanged himself and left his relatives a pathetic letter: "Living is hell for me. I should never have had an abortion. I see now I would have been a good mum. I want to be with my babies; they need me, no one else does".
Moreover, Dr Peter Saunders, general secretary of the Christian Medical Fellowship, said: “How can a doctor now justify an abortion [on mental health grounds] if psychiatrists are questioning whether there is any clear evidence that continuing with the pregnancy leads to mental health problems?”.
Spain, as reported by the Institute for Family Policy, has risen from 9,000 abortions in 1985 to over 120,000 today. That figure means that, every day, more than 300 kids will not see the luminary of day, and that the number of abortions has exceeded one million one hundred thousand since its application was legitimized. This means that every 4.8 minutes a murder occurs. Currently one in six pregnancies ends in abortion.
"A society that is proud of its social policies should protect the helpless, as the defense of life is 'a moral obligation' that public administrations should support", said Francisco Gil Hellin.

Sub:- Pakistani Christians will continue to suffer unless change strategy to get justice
refers to article ‘Why Christians are fleeing Pakistan?’ by Nasir Saeed. Such articles and news reports in your media about atrocities on Christians of Pakistan have appeared earlier also but nothing has improved so far which is not surprising because leaders of Pakistani Christians have adopted ineffective strategy for getting justice. If Pakistani Christians really want relief then they should do the following:-
(1)- First and foremost Pakistani Christians like Christians of North Africa and Middle East (NAME) region should understand that they are suffering because they are Christian minority living in bigoted and violent Muslim countries. Therefore they will get relief only when they constrain (and not merely mobilize) the global leaders of Christianity to take serious and effective interest to solve the problems of these beleaguered Christians in such Muslim countries.
(2)- For this the Pakistani Christians should launch, as per laws of USA, a registered lobbying forum “Minority Christians Human Rights Forum’ (MCHRF or any other suitable name) with head office at New York (the seat of UN) and branch offices in countries wherever needed.
(3)- The MCHRF first of all (by way of demonstrations, protests, media coverage, seminars etc) should make life of religious leaders of Christians (all over the world wherever they matter) uncomfortable for neglecting the cause of these beleaguered Christians (of Pakistan, NAME etc).
(4)- The MCHRF (along with thus mobilized religious leaders of Christianity) should then constrain heads of governments of Christian majority countries (including four permanent members of UN) and their representatives at UN to mobilize UN to constitute a commission which will go into all the cases of atrocities and injustices to beleaguered Christians in Pakistan and NAME - with a provision of even armed forces at the disposal of this UN Commission for the purpose of enforcing the orders and decrees of this UN Commission in the interest of justice to these beleaguered Christians in such Muslim countries.
Pakistani Christians think it will be beneficial and in order then I am prepared to assist (by going and living anywhere in USA or in any other country) in getting MCHRF registered at New York and in ensuring that MCHRF is seen to realize its said objectives within a time period of maximum one year so that Christian minorities especially in these bigoted Muslim countries can live peaceful life with dignity by enjoying all their human rights as enshrined in ICCPR of UN.

It is necessary to design a more open television, freer, with plurality and diversity, as it is a window on the world, from different perspectives encouraged by their corresponding information projects.
Nocturnal revelry, bacchanalia, laughter and brawls in hovels. Without measure alcohol and drugs consumption, uncontrolled passions and savage violence The dolls of "Gandía Shore", one of the most aberrant junk programs, have completed their shameful actions. The channel MTV has reached its ratings success at the expense of degrading the dignity of the human being. The end can never justify the means, the vulgarity, the exploitation of the basest instincts of the person and of any action against "nature". I usually say that God always forgives, man sometimes, but nature never forgives. The vulgar trash TV can get the highest "share" of the season, but it is not always the best. "Gandía Shore" is harmful, degrading and immoral.
U.S. television networks are fighting in order to grab viewers to competitors. Therefore, the most powerful channels increased their sensationalist programs, pushing the limits of what is permitted. Soon came the reaction of advertisers decided to withdraw their advertising from programs that violated the moral, social morality and the principles of freedom and coexistence.
Advertisers should withdraw their advertising from the program "Gandía Shore" because, when not respected moral values, the advertised product is severely damaged. Apparently their notoriety is growing, but that does not increase sales.
Television programs called "trash TV", gather all the ingredients listed. This applies especially to Big Brother, a "reality show" where a troop of participants coexist in a house, no communication with the outside and being watched 24 hours of each day. They should avoid the dismissals ordered by the audience and achieve the ultimate reward.
That TV program was founded by Dutch John de Mol. Big Brother's prototype appeared in 1997, during a "brainstorming" meeting on Mol's TV producer. It was first broadcast in 1999, later being adapted in over 70 countries. Thus came the humiliating Junk TV. The components of this program are not a role model.
The crude morbidity has become the mainstay of many programs. These are banal and ordinary ingredients on the border of what is ethically permissible. The trash TV is a problem bigger than terrorism or drugs as it destroys the transcendent life of people. So is the "Junk TV" which seeks the audience's growth through direct provocation of instincts, passions and feelings of the viewer.

It is sad that today a 7.5 magnitude earthquake struck was recorded in major cities of Pakistan, including Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Quetta, Kohat, Malakand and the northern areas on Monday, October 26, 2015 at 2:09pm, leaving at least 132 dead and scores injured due to building collapses, landslides and stampedes. Many men and women became widows and children became orphans, after this severe earth quake.
The death toll could climb in the coming days because communications are down in much of the remote mountainous region.
Forty minutes after the first earthquake, an aftershock of 4.8 magnitude was reported in the same area. Aftershocks are expected to continue in the affected areas. While the magnitude of today’s earthquake is close to the devastating quake of 2005, the epicentre of the 2005 quake was shallow, causing more destruction.
The earthquake in 2005 was at a depth of 26 km, while today’s earthquake was at a depth of 196 km. Injured were shifted at different nearby hospitals, which does not have adequate medical facilities.
Although the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, directed all federal, civil, military and provincial agencies to declare an immediate alert and mobilise all resources to ensure the security of citizens of Pakistan but there is still need to help and rescue civilians.
CTS Team willing to be getting involved closely in rescue missions and help people injured, affected by the earth Quake and provides them relief in this major disaster.
Please pray for the injurd and affecetd people and also remember CTS in your prayers that God provide us resources to help the helpless who have lost every thing they had.
We look forward to your kind help.
In Christ's service,
Being a Muslim followers I strongly condemns Jacobabad, Bolan blasts recent attacks in Sindh and Balochistan provinces — including the one in Jacobabad — and also offered condolences to the families of victims.
A powerful suicide blast ripped through a Muharram procession in Jacobabad city of Sindh, killing 22 people, mostly children, and injuring more than 40 others. LEJ accept the responsibility but they are worse than animal and doing all evil acts to disturb the Muharram procession to proof they are beloved of YAZID’S and WAHABI blind followers.
In another incident of terrorism on Thursday, a suicide attacker blew himself outside an Imambargah in Bolan district of Balochistan, killing at least 10 people and injuring 12 others.
Pakistan has a history of attacks on religious processions in Islamic holy month of Muharram, especially on 9th and 10th of the month, to oblige their evil BIG BOSS and get reward or ticket to go to heaven by short cut way? All these elements consider not human beings but worse than PIGS.
It is a sweet dream when our Govt clean all dirty eggs of LEJ, TTP those who are responsible for conducting suicide attack and none of Pakistan saved from them, what reason those elements giving Financial support, training their terrorists to encourage their evil cause and weak our country economy, perhaps Govt is not sincere first to catch the real culprits terrorist leaders and later give example punishment ( hang ) but sorry to say many times listen arrest the most wanted terrorists that time make photo session but later on no one knew what happen to arrest terrorists. Pakistan is considering HEAVEN of terrorists make as much crime and killing innocent without fear of arrest and punishment.
Only condolences are not enough. Pakistan needs to provide security to all religious processions. How long will you offer condolences Mr Ban ki Moon? We are fed up with our Govt not able to provide security to even our religious procession. Shia’s perhaps not saved when conduct their religious activities that time what PAIN getting Wahhabi cum Yazadi’s followers?
What happen to those who worked to disturb or stop the AZADARI there are countless evil people who died but no one remembering them but I am point out a few (CRUEL RULER) to open your closed eyes still time to come on right path of HUSSAIN’S otherwise YOU will remain with Yazadi’s forever.
1. Shah of Iran
2. Saddam Hussain
Who still remember and how many going to their graves? Perhaps people have forgotten all of them due to their cruel way of ruling the country.
I must say one thing no one have courage or succeed to stop the AZADARI of Imam Hussain AS due to Dua of Hazrat Fatima Zehra SA and plus God promise, see how many people doing Azadari of Imam Hussain AS not only of Pakistan but from Norway, Australia, Canada, Iraq, Iran, Bangladesh, India, Singapore, UK, USA.
Why WAHBAI terrorist active in Pakistan, Iran, Iraq, Syria for killing innocents People but the question is who is support, giving finance, giving training to rebellion who are working specially working in SYRIA and Iraq, God when you will destroy all sort of terrorism including people who are working directly or indirectly for evil cause so other human being saved.
