Lifelines is an educational, pro-life issue oriented program focusing on current events and topics. www.vrlc.net This program examines the University of Vermont Medical Center’s radical policy change regarding performing abortions; to now include all elective abortions. The previous, decades-old policy limited abortions on hospital premises to rare cases deemed “medically necessary”; for example, to save the life of the mother. The Medical Center’s Board of Trustees, chaired by Allie Stickney, the former CEO of abortion giant, Planned Parenthood (Northern New England branch), set the new policy and put it into effect without even notifying hospital staff. As a health care organization dedicated to compassionate healing, the new policy seems contradictory. The program presents an online petition for those objecting to the policy.
