School Relents on T-Shirt
THOMAS MORE LAW CENTER, May 10 —The principal of Canyon High School in Canyon, Texas, quickly reacted to a demand letter from the Thomas More Law Center, rescinding his earlier decision prohibiting John Denton from wearing his pro-life sweatshirt at school.
Denton, a junior student, was told on April 22, 2002, that he could no longer wear his sweatshirt that displayed the message “Abortion is Homicide.”
The Law Center sent a demand letter to the Canyon school officials explaining Denton's constitutional right to wear his pro-life clothing and demanding that the school immediately provide written assurance that Denton would be permitted to wear his pro-life sweatshirt to school.
On May 9, the School District's attorney sent the Center a letter explaining that the principal had changed his decision and that Denton may again wear his pro-life sweatshirt to school.
Shareholders vs. Billionaire
NEWSMAX, May 7— The Population Research Institute's Steven Mosher introduced a shareholder's motion to prevent investment firm Berkshire-Hathaway's chair Warren Buffett from donating investors' money to pro-abortion and population control causes.
Mosher argued that Buffett's multi-million dollar donations to causes such as the production of RU-486, Planned Parenthood, and Catholics for a Free Choice, have attracted boycotts from pro-life consumers, and in the long run will contribute to reducing the number of potential consumers of Berkshire-Hathaway products.
Mosher urged all Berkshire-Hathaway shareholders to support his motion, calling for the company to cease all charitable donations rather than bankrolling population control, on grounds of economic self-interest.
“Charitable contributions to simpleminded population control programs, in which governments impose restrictions on childbearing, are not in Berkshire-Hathaway's interest,” Mosher said.
‘Touching’ the Unborn
MANHATTAN TECHNOLOGIES, May 7— A U.S. company says it has pioneered a new haptic (tactile) computer technology that enables parents to “touch” the features of their unborn child during ultrasound.
Manhattan Technologies Inc. says “eTouch”(TM), a 3-D system developed by affiliate Novint Technologies Inc., creates the illusion that the customer is feeling the texture of an unborn baby's face and skin by means of a computer mouse and software that simulates the sensation of touch during ultrasound. The procedure will cost $250 per exam.
