Good News for Life in Colombia: US Pro-Abortion Groups Rejected

U.S. pro-abortion groups are not satisfied with the millions of babies murdered domesticly, and continue their campaigns promoting the culture of death around the world. CitizenLink had good news from Colombia in yesterday's email.
The highest court in Colombia rejected an effort by US-based pro-abortion organizations to push their agenda in Colombia, according to Human Life International.

The US-based Women's Link Worldwide, International Planned Parenthood Federation and Catholics for a Free Choice had joined forces in an attempt to overthrow Colombia's constitutional protection of pre-born children.

The Rev. Tom Euteneuer, president of Human Life International, said the groups sought to have the Constitutional Court of Colombia remove any mention of abortion from the nation's penal code.

The ruling means abortion continues to be against the law in the South American nation.

With our domestic courts wrongly relying on International law for domestic rulings, besides the threat to unborn babies around the world, these "export" strategies do presents a danger to the U.S. US based pro-life groups need to increase their partnership with local organizations and churches in Latin America and the rest of the world to fight this threat.

Update: More over at Pro-Life Blogs

"This was truly a case of David vs. Goliath," said Garcia-Jones. "These organizations had been actively involved in this case for months and many had filed briefs with the Constitutional Court of Colombia. Thankfully, their efforts were fruitless."

Thanks to the countless efforts of pro-lifers, the Constitutional Court of Colombia declared this past Thursday that the attempt to legalize abortion in Colombia had failed.

Communism: Good Money for the "El Viejo"

I guess Fidel Castro is doing ok. Forbes lists Castro as one of the richest in the world, right up there with the Queen of England. I bet he didn't like the attention. It was hard to figure it out, but it seems they managed to throw some numbers together.
In the past, we have relied on a percentage of Cuba's gross domestic product to estimate Fidel Castro's fortune. This year we have used more traditional valuation methods, comparing state-owned assets Castro is assumed to control with comparable publicly traded companies. A reasonable discount was then applied to compensate for the obvious disclosure issues.

Hispanic Trending: Leave your name at the border

Most people miss the fact that Hispanics do not consist of a single ethnic group. Besides that, the heritage that each one of the many nationalities represented in our immigrant population is diverse in itself. As I read Manuel Muñoz's post on his assimilation experience, I can tell you mine was nothing like his. But I can relate to this paragraph. My niece's name is Katie Belle (Sierra). It's intriguing to watch "American" names begin to dominate among my nieces and nephews and second cousins, as well as with the children of my hometown friends. I am not surprised to meet 5-year-old Brandon or Kaitlyn. Hardly anyone questions the incongruity of matching these names with last names like Trujillo or Zepeda. The English-only way of life partly explains the quiet erasure of cultural difference that assimilation has attempted to accomplish. A name like Kaitlyn Zepeda doesn't completely obscure her ethnicity, but the half-step of her nam…
