The devil is having a good week. Hot on the heels of legalizing homosexual "marriage," today the evil one's lackeys on the Supreme Court blocked Texas from enforcing abortion clinic restrictions.
The Supreme Court refused on Monday to allow Texas to enforce restrictions that would force 10 abortion clinics to close.The justices voted 5-4 to grant an emergency appeal from the clinics after a federal appeals court upheld new regulations and refused to keep them on hold while the clinics appealed to the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court order will remain in effect at least until the court decides whether to hear the clinics' appeal of the lower court ruling, not before the fall.
The court's decision to block the regulations is a strong indication that the justices will hear the full appeal, which could be the biggest abortion case at the Supreme Court in nearly 25 years.
If the court steps in, the hearing and the eventual ruling would come amid the 2016 presidential campaign.
Can you guess that Anthony Kennedy was the fifth vote?
Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas would have allowed the state to move ahead with regulations requiring abortion facilities to be constructed like surgical centers. Doctors at all clinics also would be forced to have admitting privileges at a local hospital.
There are stricter regulations on tanning salons than on the charnal houses of Planned Parenthood. Texas tried to change that. The devil made sure they couldn't.
Please pray for the souls of the innocent children. And pray that the hearts
of their murderers will be turned away from the forces of darkness. A future
ruled by evil is no future at all.
Welcome to the Brave New World of long-distance infanticide.
The Iowa Supreme Court ruled Friday that doctors can keep using a telemedicine system to dispense abortion pills because it would pose an "undue burden" on a woman's right to abortion.
More than 7,200 Iowa women have used the Planned Parenthood of the Heartland system to obtain abortion-inducing pills since 2008. The system, the first of its kind in the nation, allows Planned Parenthood doctors in Des Moines or Iowa City to interact via video with patients in outlying clinics, then dispense the pills to the women.
State regulators, appointed by Iowa's governor who opposes abortion, ruled in 2013 that the system should effectively be banned because of purported safety concerns. The ban was put on hold while Planned Parenthood appealed in court. A district judge sided with the regulators in 2014, but the Supreme Court disagreed Friday.
The justices decided 6-0 that the Iowa Board of Medicine's rule violated women's rights under the state and federal constitutions. The court noted that telemedicine is being used to provide many other types of health care. But the medical board only focused on telemedicine's use for abortion when it imposed a requirement that doctors personally perform physical exams on patients, the justices wrote. "It is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the board's medical concerns about telemedicine are selectively limited to abortion."
Yeah, because killing your unborn child is no different from getting some antibiotics for strep throat.
Would they allow brain surgery via email too?
Meanwhile in the Netherlands, children are being given the right to assisted suicide.
Terminally ill children in unbearable suffering should be given the right to die, the Dutch Paediatricians Association said on Friday, urging the suppression of the current 12-year age limit.
"We feel that an arbitrary age limit such as 12 should be changed and that each child's ability to ask to die should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis," said Eduard Verhagen, paediatrics professor at Groningen University who is on the association's ethics commission.
Children in the Netherlands aged 12 or over can request euthanasia if they are terminally ill, suffering unbearably, able to express their will and have parental approval.
So Planned Parenthood can say the fetus was asking for it, right?
How depraved is our society? We throw away children with nary a whimper, and no inconvenience is too small to stand in the way of feminism's holy sacrament.
Yet the very same proponents of abortion on demand refuse to allow imposition of the death penalty on convicted murders. They value the life of a monster like Dylann Roof over those of the tens of millions of unborn children sacrificed on the alter of "choice."
I can't get my mind around that.
Pray for the children. And pray for the souls of their murderers.
Here's the saddest statistic you'll read today.
New Jersey is among only 10 U.S. states where more than half of children live with their married, biological parents.
Barely "more than half." 54% to be exact, with Utah, Minnesota, and Nebraska only slightly edging NJ out at 57, 55, and 54 percent respectively.
Somehow that's being spun as a Good Thing, and vindication of the "blue state model." (Nonwithstanding that Utah and Nebraska aren't "blue states.")
New Jersey fits into "the blue state model" offered by the study's authors, sociologist W. Bradford Wilcox and Nicholas Zill, a psychologist. Under that theory, residents of some Democratic-leaning states are more educated and earn a higher income. Those people are more likely to get married and stay married, the report says.
And of course there's the knee-jerk swipe at those conservative, redneck states.
The states with the lowest percentage of children being raised in two-parent households where the adults are the kids' birth parents are Mississippi (32), Louisana (36) and Arkansas.
So many children, far more than half of all kids, stuck in broken families, dependent on The State to fulfill the role of Dad, Mom, or both. It's a damn shame. And an indictment of our society.
How did we get here? Pick one, or all: No-fault divorce. Free love. Feminism. Welfare. Antipathy to religion. Mix 'em all together, add in abrogation of personal responsibility and denigration of shared sacrifice, and you get a society on the decline, where the whims of the supposed adults outweigh the tedious but necessary work required to properly raise their offspring.
And why not? Dads are marginalized. Family courts almost never award them custody of the children, but mercilessly force them into penury via onerous child support payments. Meanwhile a plethora of government handouts ensure Dad isn't needed in the first place, because essentials like food and shelter are just a welfare check away. So what if he's also not there to provide a comforting hug or some words of wisdom? Feminist dogma obviates his necessity anyway, while Mom's lesbian lover fills her head with platitudes about empowerment.
You know what's really empowering? Watching your kid grow up into somebody you'd want to be friends with. Celebrating their successes. Picking them up after their failures. Guiding their maturity and sharing the joys and the tears with the woman who bore them. Yeah, that's so not hip, and it's a boatload of hard work, but it's how the world worked for thousands and thousands of years.
Until now, when our society sefishly took the easy way out. "It takes a village" became their excuse to let "the village" do all the heavy lifting. As soon as they found out there were no repercussions to narcissism the decline of the nuclear family was inevitable. It's no accident that children raised by Big Brother are enmeshed in a culture of dependency. People dependent on the government vote Democrat, because the Democrats are the party of government. So it behooves the government to create as many Democrats as possible.
It's a vicious cycle, and one that won't easily be broken. The allure of Free Stuff trumps the core values of personal responsibility and shared sacrifice any day. The politicians know that, and they don't particularly care that they're destroying everything the Founding Fathers fought and died to establish. Not so long as they get to maintain their stranglehold on power.
There's the legacy of the welfare state in a nutshell. Its soft tyranny
devastates the hopes and dreams of the most vulnerable among us, our children.
They'll inherit a nation worse off than the one our fathers and mothers created
for us. And they'll grow up believing there's nothing they can do to help
themselves escape from it.
It's good to know that some things are beyond the pale even for the ultra-liberals in New Jersey. Steven Chase Brigham fancied himself as a cross between notorious late-term abortionists George Tiller and Kermit Gosnell, and he has the dead babies in his freezer to prove it.
Yesterday his medical license was finally revoked.
The state's physician disciplinary board tonight revoked the license of Steven C. Brigham, a controversial doctor accused of skirting state rules by starting the process of late-term abortions with five women in his South Jersey office, and ordering them to drive to his Maryland clinic where the procedure was finished.
Finding several counts of gross negligence, deception and official misconduct against him, the state Board of Medical Examiners also ordered Brigham to pay $140,000 in penalties. At a future hearing, the board will decide how much of the state's court costs he will be ordered to pay; the tab is expected to exceed $500,000.
The board suspended Brigham's license in 2010 after the Attorney General's Office argued he used the two-state process to evade New Jersey's requirement that terminating pregnancies must take place in a hospital or licensed health care facility after 14 weeks. Brigham did not have hospital privileges at the time and is not an obstetrician or a gynecologist.
From his main office in Voorhees, Brigham inserted a device, Laminaria, to expand his patients' cervixes, and administered a shot of Digoxin to cause "fetal demise." At his instruction, his patients later drove to drive to a clinic in Elkton, Md. where the fetus would be surgically removed would by another doctor in consultation with Brigham.
Brigham was not licensed to practice medicine in Maryland, but his lawyer said he thought he was following Maryland law that allowed its doctors to consult with out-of-state physicians.
Totally on the up and up, right? Because his shill in Maryland was 87 years old and had never actually performed an abortion. No sane person would let these 2 clowns perform any other surgery, why let them kill babies? Oh, right, emanations of penumbras and stuff.
Brigham's attorney Joseph Gorrell described his client as a devoted physician who felt compelled to fill the void for late-term abortion services after George Tiller, a family doctor in Kansas, was shot to death in May 2009. Tiller had been the only physician east of Colorado willing to perform late-term abortions in the country.
What a humanitarian!
And if a poor immigrant woman happens to die in the process, hey, abortion is like a feminist sacrament or something and it can't be restricted no matter what.
So for more than 20 years Steven Chase Brigham botched abortion after abortion, and left a trail of misery in at least 8 states. Because that's Women's Health Care!
No one wants to admit it, but Brigham's operation is far from unique. It's the norm for how abortionists do business. They're cold-hearted killers, working in the shadows, because what they do is too hideous to be seen in the light of day. And sadly, far too many "pro-choice" Americans don't really want to know the gory details of their "choice" anyway. To them it's all hearts and flowers and rainbows and grrl power. Feminist dogma glosses over the very real and very dead baby whose life isn't considered worth remembering and besides who are we to intrude on a woman's right to not be inconvenienced by motherhood?
Yesterday the forces of darkness were dealt a blow. It's a small victory,
but I'll take it. Meanwhile, pray for the innocent victims of abortion,
55 million souls, consigned to Purgatory through no fault of their own.
Yesterday, while discussing the "no conservatives allowed" policy of something called the National Young Feminist Leadership Conference, Stacy McCain noted that you don't need a whole conference to tell you how to be a feminist.
It's much simpler than that!
After seeing these feminist festivities, I'm sure many young women are asking, "What can I do? I'd like to be a feminist, but I can't afford to attend a national conference or spend years getting a Women's Studies degree from an elite private university."
Relax, ladies. Becoming a feminist is actually very simple:
1. Get an abortion;
2. Become a lesbian;
3. Vote Democrat;
4. Cats. Lots of cats.
You're welcome. Always glad to help.
To which I can only add, lose your sense of humor.
Poof!, you're a sandwich.
Oh, who am I kidding, not even
Chris Dodd and Ted Kennedy would make a sandwich out of that.
Nothing says "Mom and Dad are getting value for the their college tuition dollars" quite like a seminar at the University of South Carolina Upstate entitled How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less.
Because once you go down the path of Radical Feminism, the crazy comes out of the woodwork.
According to the school's website, theater artist Leigh Hendrix will perform her one-woman show, "How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less," to kick off the sixth Bodies of Knowledge Symposium and Conference. . . .
Hendrix encourages her audience to shout "I'm a big 'ol dyke!" in a show that is "one part instructional seminar, one part personal story, and one part wacky performance art."
Emphasis on wacky. Which is, of course, a synonym for crazy.
My man Stacy McCain takes this shit seriously — so I don't have to! — and in doing so he makes an excellent point.
Between peer pressure not to be a "homophobe" and feminist rhetoric that celebrates women's sexual aggression as "empowerment," what would be the fate of any college girl who rejects the overtures of a lesbian admirer? All the "rape culture" chatter — "No means no!" — is aimed at demonizing men. Would campus feminists defend your daughter if she complained of being harassed by an obsessed lesbian stalker? Or would they condemn your daughter as a homophobic "hater"?
You know the answer to that one.
Your daughter (and mine) is a Homophobic Hater, even before she leaves the nest for college.
How could she not be, as she boycotts the 17th performance of The Vagina Monologues to be staged this week, and thereby crushes the hopes and dreams of her roommate's cousin's androgynous transgender dog sitter?
Feminism is lesbianism. And if your daughter is not eating at the Y, you are both bigoted enemies of Progress and Equality.
It says so in the Student Handbook.
Feminists have now succeeded in convincing a New Jersey judge that fathers are indeed irrelevant. Yesterday Superior Court Judge Sohail Mohammed decreed that a woman's "right to privacy" trumps fatherhood, and thus a mother can bar the father of her child from being present at its birth.
Sit in the hall chump. You're not important.
You still gotta write checks for the next 18 years though.
A woman preparing to give birth can bar the father of their child from entering the delivery room, a New Jersey judge has ruled in one of the first cases of its kind nationwide.
The ruling settled a legal dispute that was argued the very day the woman gave birth. Superior Court Judge Sohail Mohammed said all patients — and pregnant women especially — enjoy strong privacy protections that let them decide who can be at their hospital bedside.
Fathers, on the other hand, have no established legal right to be present at the birth of their children, the judge wrote.
"Any interest a father has before the child's birth is subordinate to the mother's interests," Mohammed wrote. "Even when there is no doubt that a father has shown deep and proper concern and interest in the growth and development of the fetus, the mother is the one who must carry it to term."
The kid doesn't need to bond with dad. The kid just needs to bond with dad's wallet.
The mother's privacy rights won the day, the judge wrote, because of a pair of landmark U.S. Supreme Court decisions on abortion — Roe v. Wade from 1973 and Planned Parenthood v. Casey from 1992. The high court established in those rulings that an expectant mother has a stronger right over her body and over her unborn child than the father. A court majority in Casey ruled that women are not even required to tell their spouses about abortions, Mohammed noted.
In light of the court rulings, Mohammed wrote, it strains logic to ask a pregnant woman to notify the father when she goes into labor.
The height of feminism. Her body. Her child. Your money.
Yeah, that strains logic too.
Bruce Eden of Dads Against Discrimination called the ruling "another example of New Jersey's anti-male discrimination in the family courts."
Most custody awards and divorce settlements favor the mother or wife, and courts have found fathers have many financial obligations in rearing children, but not the same level of rights, he said. "It takes two to tango," Eden said. "Why are they allowing only the mother?"
In New Jersey, fathers have no rights. Only responsibilities.
Remember, feminist dogma says a woman needs a man like a fish needs a
bicycle. A very expensive, high-maintenance bicycle. Paid for by the man.
You really can't understand the depths of feminist depravity until you fully think through the idea of setting aside a day to "thank an abortion provider."
Today is a good day to thank an abortion provider. In 1996, March 10th was declared National Abortion Provider Appreciation Day. It's one day, during Women's History Month, for those of us who believe in a woman's right to choose an abortion to give thanks to those make that choice a safe one.
A safe choice for whom?
Not to put too fine a point on it, but it's never a good day to thank the guy who murdered your child.
Abortion is infanticide. Abortion providers are mass murderers. Their death toll stands at 57 million, and counting.
It's heartbreaking to contemplate. And it makes me sick to my stomach to know there are people out there celebrating today. The stench of that paean to "abortion providers" is nauseating. If you feel the need to read it, hug your children first. Then hug them again.
Pray for the souls of the abortionists. And weep for their victims.
I'll leave you with these words from Mother Teresa:
"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."
What side of the poverty line do you live on?
2014 is shaping up to be the year scouting divorces itself from morality.
First, the Boy Scouts agreed to start admitting openly homosexual members and scoutmasters, making their new name The Boy Toy Scouts. Be prepared!
Amd now I read that the Girl Scouts, of which my very own daughter is a member in good standing, have nominated Texas gubernatorial candidate and infanticide activist Wendy Davis as their Woman Of The Year.
On December 18, 2013, Girl Scouts USA tweeted: "Incredible Ladies Who Should Be Women of the Year for 2013" and asking if anyone should be added to the list.
The link goes to a column by the liberal Huffington Post, which promotes Davis and pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem as potential women of the year.
Really. The Girl Scouts say our daughters should strive to emulate women who believes in the "right" to murder their own children. What's next, an abortion "try-it" patch?
Perhaps next year they'll nominate Susan Smith.
But perhaps I shouldn't give them any ideas.
So, who should be the Girl Scouts' Woman of the Year?
Malala Yousafzai. She's got more courage in her pinky toe than Wendy Davis or Gloria Steinem could ever pretend to have.
Malala's message of hope, her steadfast determination and dedication to education, and her unwavering commitment to simple human dignity, that's what our daughters need to emulate. She knows firsthand the depredations forced upon truly oppressed women. And she rose above them to become a symbol of Freedom, a lightning rod for Liberty.
Education empowers women. Abortion destroys a woman's soul. GSUSA needs to
quickly re-evaluate their priorities. Because an organization that embraces
infanticide cannot in all honesty claim to prepare young women as shepherds
of our future.
In Bill de Blasio's NYC abortion is going to be mandatory.
De Blasio said that, in order to ensure a sufficient number of abortionists to meet the high demand, he will also continue to force doctors who train in city hospitals to perform abortions as a routine part of their training. The mandate is a NARAL-backed program that began under Mayor Michael Bloomberg and which de Blasio referred to as "groundbreaking."
Mandatory abortion. Welcome to China.
And to give all those new baby killers have a place to hang their hats, de Blasio vows to erect a Planned Parenthood Charnel House on every block.
The city in which 41 percent of pregnancies end in abortion has elected a new mayor who is pledging to partner with Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers to expand their businesses even further by providing them with "city-sponsored" space to set up shop.
The goal, of course, is a 100% abortion rate. Blood in the streets, alongside a river of tears.
Bill de Blasio, who was elected Tuesday with 73 percent of the vote, also pledged to help abortionists wipe out their main competition — pro-life crisis pregnancy centers — which he refers to as "sham" clinics. These centers offer women financial and logistical assistance to either keep their babies or place them with adoptive families.
LifeSiteNews reported that de Blasio expressed his view that since crisis pregnancy centers refuse to perform abortions, they do not offer "legitimate health care." He has promised to continue the city's appeal of a court order striking down a law aimed at closing down these centers.
Should the court appeal fail, however, de Blasio states he will "craft new regulations to prevent [crisis pregnancy] centers from masquerading as legitimate health care providers."
Adoption, it's illegitimate, and soon to be banned in New York City.
Infanticide, it's the New Normal.
You guys elected Joseph Mengele as mayor. Good luck with that.
Last night, for the first time, my wife read a news account describing Kermit Gosnell's house of horrors.
Then she threw up.
Unfortunately, as I tried to explain to her, Kermit Gosnell isn't the exception, he's the Poster Boy for women's health care.
She said she's not ready to believe that. So here's proof.
An abortionist who is now facing a criminal investigation would regularly allow late-term babies to be born alive, then twist their heads off with his bare hands, according to a videotaped interview conducted by three of his employees.
"Most of the time the fetus [sic] would come all the way out before he either cut the spinal cord or introduced one of the instruments into the soft-spot of the fetus in order to kill the fetus," said Deborah Edge, one of the employees. "Either that or twisting the head off the neck with his own bare hands."
"Most of the time we'd see...the fetus would come all the way out, and of course the fetus was still alive," she said, adding that the doctor's assistants could see the newborns breathing.
The abortionist also suffocated babies by putting his finger down their windpipes, and placed living babies inside trash bags.
Life Dynamics, Inc., conducted an interview with three female employees of a late-term abortion facility on May 3. The employees' names were released, but the facility's location — and the abortionist's name — is being withheld because it is an ongoing investigation. Life Dynamics revealed only that the facility is not located in Pennsylvania.
The footage proves the murders perpetrated inside Kermit Gosnell's West Philadelphia "house of horrors" were anything but anomalous, the organization stated in a press release.
"I think every morning I saw several of them," Edge said. Of 20 babies aborted in a day, three-to-four were "completely delivered" before being murdered.
One baby, whom the doctor believed had died, was born alive, opened its eyes, and clutched the abortionist's finger, as if to stop him.
There are no words to sufficiently describe such evil. Abortionists have no soul. They are agents of Satan.
But what about "first trimester" abortions? Aren't they "legal?" And "safe?"
Uh, no. Author Verlyn Klinkenborg of Harper's Magazine visited an abortion clinic for a 1995 article. After viewing the remains of an abortion at ten weeks, he wrote the following:
". . . I felt a profound and unmistakable kinship with the foot and hand in the tray, a kinship so strong it was like the rolling of the sea under my feet[.] … I was surprised by my own sadness, by the sense of loss that I felt[.] … I found it so much easier to be moved by the sight of the disembodied hand the size of a question mark gleaming under fluorescent lights. … In that tiny, naked hand there was the imputation of innocence."
Tiny hands. Tiny feet. Tiny humans, butchered, in the name of Health Care.
A writer from the Wisconsin State Journal shadowed an abortionist as he performed abortions in his clinic. He says:
". . . Christensen performed two abortions that day on women who were at the end of the first trimester. In each case, the tissue was suctioned into a large glass jar, filling the bottom half inch.
Christensen later poured it into a straining basin and examined it to make sure we removed all of it."
At one point, he picked up a tiny foot and placed it against a ruler. "Thirteen millimeters," he announced, "which is consistent with 12 weeks of actual pregnancy."Later he held a tiny head. "Its brain tissue will be sent to the National Institutes of Health for research on brain tumors."
I suppose we should be grateful he didn't save the tiny feet as souvenirs, right?
B.D. Colen, a reporter for Newsday, witnessed a second-trimester D&E abortion. A D&E is the standard second-trimester abortion and is performed over 300 times a day:
". . . After dilating, or opening, the cervix, the physician used a curette, the gynecological version of a sharpened spoon, to cut the fetus into pieces he would then remove with forceps. A large petri dish sat on an instrument stand to the right of the of the girl's feet, and most of the red material in the dish was unrecognizable. But from time to time during the procedure the physician would tap his forceps on the edge of the dish — and into the muck would drop a foot, or a hand, or a piece of rib cage[.]
Having seen what I saw, I cannot for a moment abide the disingenuousness of those who argue that a fetus is not human, or those who convince themselves that abortion is not killing[.]"
Planned Parenthood doesn't want you to see what these reporters saw. They ignored, and in fact implicitly condoned Kermit Gosnell, because exposing him would lead to exposing the whole sordid mess which is the Abortion Industrial Complex. It's murder on a genocidal scale. A holocaust of incomprehensible proportions. A death toll of 55,000,000, and counting.
And if you are counting, that's 110 million tiny little feet.
Before Baby E met Kermit Gosnell, he was alive.
After Baby E met Kermit Gosnell, he was dead.
That's murder, isn't it?
Alas, no. Unless Baby E was a puppy. If Baby E was a puppy, the verdict would have been easy, and swift.
Because according to NARAL, what Gosnell did to Baby E is "health care." What Michael Vick did to puppies, that's murder.
So pardon me if I'm not excited about how Gosnell is potentially facing the death penalty. The jury failed to call abortion what it truly is — murder. They punted on the hard decision. Ripping a living, breathing child from the protection of its mother's womb, tearing the child limb from limb before sucking its brains out, isn't that murder?
Twelve Americans said "no."
I'm appalled. And Jesus wept.
Yes folks, it's that time of the year again. Spring. And of course National Offend a Feminist Week, when a young blogger's fancy turns to wanton disregard for Womyn's Studies pedagogy.
And what better way is there to offend your local feminist than by providing conclusive proof that the gender pay gap is a myth? That's right Bra Burners, when all your overwrought hyperbole and faux-victimization is set aside the underlying statistics don't lie.
There's a mountain of data, research, and studies from sources like the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau, even a 2011 White House report prepared by the U.S. Department of Commerce for the White House Council on Women and Girls, that all say the same thing.
The gender pay gap is not a result of discrimination, coercion, or anything like that. To put it simply, it's a matter of women's choices.
Many women sacrifice pay for all sorts of reasons including security, safety, flexibility, and fulfillment. Their priorities are vastly different than men's. And when you account for that, when you compare apples to apples, when women actually make the same career choices as men, there is no gap. Men and women earn the same.
And lately, women are starting to earn more than men.
A 2010 analysis of Census Bureau data showed that young, single women who've never had a child actually earned 8% more than their male counterparts in most U.S. cities. The findings seem to be driven by an ongoing trend: more and more women — now more than men, in fact — are attending college and going on to relatively high-paying professional careers.
So, what are the odds we can get a congressional investigation into the newly
emerging male wage gap?
Yes, your unborn child deserves to be protected from domestic violence too.
Pregnant women threatened with domestic violence can get restraining orders for their unborn children, a state judge in Ocean County has ruled in a decision published today.
New Jersey law doesn't recognize fetuses as having rights, but women who are already seeking a restraining order for themselves shouldn't have to wait until giving birth to get another one for the child, Superior Court Judge Lawrence Jones said.
The child's restraining order would take effect only after birth, he added.
It's one more step toward recognizing personhood for unborn children. Your baby has the right to live without fear of abuse! And NJ law already grants children the right to sue their parents for damages suffered in the womb, ie from drug abuse. So Judge Jones's ruling makes perfect sense.
Even better, it sets a valuable precedent. The law now recognizes that a mother has the right to protect her unborn baby. It's something that should be obvious, but unfortunately isn't obvious at all given how feminist ideology worships abortion above all else.
So, score one for the good guys!
A national Democratic organization that supports pro-choice female candidates has a message for Gov. Chris Christie: His record is on women and family issues is "appalling."
EMILY's List, an influential Washington political action committee, announced today that it has placed Christie "on notice."
Oooh. He's "on notice!" They're mounting their brooms, ready to storm Drumthwacket, preaching the joy of infanticide while defending families.
The group said the criteria for the notice is two-fold: a politician must amass an "appallingly anti-woman, anti-family" record and have "a major Democratic female talent" ready to challenge them.
"Chris Christie's record is right wing and indefensible," EMILY's List president Stephanie Schriock said in a statement. "He's anti-choice, anti-equal pay, and doles out billions of dollars in tax breaks to corporations while hammering working families with massive cuts to education and healthcare.
You'd think that killing babies would be as "anti-family" as you could get, right? Nah, these gals don't see the irony. The only "family" they care about is the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Abortions for everyone! Or, you're "an extremist."
"Christie is a GOP extremist plain and simple, and New Jersey families need to know he's not on their side. With the help of the EMILY's List community — now two million members strong — voters are going to get to know the real Chris Christie: wrong on the issues, and wrong for New Jersey."
Unfortunately for Mizz Schriock and her two million sycophants, Chris Christie enjoys the highest approval rating in the history of the universe — 74%. That sounds pretty right for New Jersey to me!
So she's certainly got her work cut out for her. Here's an idea. Instead of putting him "on notice," put Chris Christie on Double Secret Probation. That'll really get the voters' attention.
I'll have Dean Wormer call your people.
Today is the 3rd annual "Ask Them What They Mean When They Say 'Choice' Day." Each year pro-life heroine Jill Stanek organizes this rebuttal to NARAL's "Blog For Choice Day" (put on because, hey "celebrating" abortion is liberating, or something.) It's a way for us to highlight the inherent contradiction in the feminist mythology. Abortion doesn't make you un-pregnant. Abortion makes you the mother of a dead baby.
Of course, pro-choicers don't like to talk about that part. They're all about flowers and clouds and privacy (although I wonder just how "private" your privacy really is when you're dancing around town in an I-had-an-abortion T-shirt).
So Jill's idea is to get them talking about what "choice" really means. To show them what "choice" really means. If they'll listen.
We have our work cut out for us.
Joanne Bamberger, aka PunditMom, joined the 9Rules politics community a few years after I did. And it turns out that no one could be more "pro-choice." In fact, she's put up two posts this week already "celebrating" the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade, both lamenting that there aren't enough abortions being performed.
It's the ultimate feminist sacrament, abortion is. Apparently you aren't really a woman until you've vacuumed at least one child out of your womb. And Ms. Bamberger is determined to ensure that every women in America is afforded the joy of watching that unwanted clump of cells splosh into the slops bucket.
In her eyes, any attempt to prevent an abortion, any suggestion that a woman might want to reconsider her decision and keep her child, any chance that a woman might want to treat having an abortion as something more important than having a hangnail removed, well that's completely unacceptable.
With 40 years of judicial precedent that has incrementally rolled back abortion access to work with and a panel of Supreme Court justices who appear more willing than ever to re-open an issue that is considered settled law, women's reproductive rights have never been more vulnerable. And thanks to a handful of state legislators determined to make their political names and reputations by advancing legislation meant to crumble those protections offered by Roe, we may fragment into a new Confederacy of pro- and anti-women's health states sooner than anyone could have imagined. To prevent that from happening, we need to move away from just defending a woman's right to choose and back to an aggressive stance where we once more demand that bodily autonomy belong to all woman, regardless of their race or class.
Wow. How much sophistry can she cram into one paragraph? A new Confederacy! Brought to you by men hoping to make abortion a political issue! As if the most pro-abortion president in history wasn't just re-elected by politicizing vaginas and attacking the Catholic Church as "anti-woman."
Planned Parenthood performed more abortions than ever last year. 55,000,000 to date. To Ms. Bamberger, that's merely a good start.
Now I could do as Jill suggests and go on over to PunditMom's site to ask her about "choice." But Ms. Bamberger has admonished me against commenting there. She doesn't like my questions. And I respect her wishes. It's a free country. She's entitled to cocoon herself within the confines of her narrow little mind.
But hey, I've got a blog. And pixels are free. So I've put my comments here. If Ms. Bamberger or any of her ya-ya sisters want to come on in and explain "choice," I'll listen. And I'll suggest they watch The Silent Scream.
Because that's what feminists mean when they say "choice."
Nothing saddens me more than to see well-intentioned people championing the "right" to abortion. Because they have to know what it is. They have to know it's murder. And they don't care. I don't want to believe that proponents of abortion are evil. But I can't help but notice that they turn a blind eye to evil.
Abortion should be "safe." That's their refrain. Safe for whom? Certainly not the child. Almost every abortion results in a dead baby. I imagine if you could ask the baby about that, she'd say it wasn't particularly "safe."
Child molesters have more "rights" today than an unborn baby. Our society has all but disavowed the death penalty as "cruel and unusual." Except for abortion, of course. One death penalty is a Constitutional right. It's a contradiction that is perhaps lost on Roe's cheerleaders.
So here's today's Star-Ledger — Happy Anniversary, Roe.
Hey, let's make a cake! And blow up some balloons too. Throw a party, to celebrate 40 years of legalized infanticide. It's the ultimate in feminist nirvanna, the mothers who eat their young. "Mothers" who are taught to live for themselves, and to ignore the need to nurture future generations. They call it "choice." In reality, it's selfishness.
Bearing a child is the ultimate act of love. And of sacrifice. But our hedonistic society eschews personal sacrifice. And so a woman can discard her inconvenient child in the morning and go out dancing at night.
Today I came across a pro-abortion image that made my skin crawl. There was no blood, no little aborted baby parts, no image of death. Instead it was a photo of Gloria Steinem, smiling, arms raised in a celebratory pose, wearing a t-shirt that read, "I had an abortion." Beneath her it asked, "Do you really need to inconvenience yourself for the next 18 years?"
Where to begin?
As a post-abortive mother of four, this infuriated and disgusted me on many different levels.
Firstly, it rekindles my anger toward the "Women's Liberation" movement that has so emasculated our men and destroyed our society with things like birth control and abortion on demand until a child's day of birth. Why is it that men are afraid to speak up for their children as they drive their child's mother to the abortion mill? Because society has spent the last 40 years telling them that the ultimate display of respect and equality to their female counterparts is the freedom and constitutional right that is killing her child at her simplest whim, as if she were having a tooth or a wart removed. Shut up and let me do what I want.
And going one step further, consider the utter selfishness of the question posed in this graphic. Why inconvenience yourself with a child? Kill it so you can continue your promiscuous lifestyle with no regrets. Tell me, please, the last time you heard a mother say she regretted keeping her child. Women do not regret the children they have; they regret the children they didn't have.
Read the whole thing. Her evidence suggests that post-abortion trauma is very real.
That's feminism's Big Lie. That abortion is just a "choice." Like what to have for dessert. Choose cake, or pudding. Choose motherhood, or not.
Who will weep for the children? Who will mourn the 55,000,000 dead?
I will. And if you don't have a heart of stone, so will you.
The same people calling for restricting Second Amendment rights have no qualms with celebrating the charnal houses of Planned Parenthood. Feminism is a religion, and abortion is its sacrament.
Parenthood Federation of America's latest annual report for 2011-2012 says that its affiliated clinics performed 333,964 abortions in fiscal 2011.
That works out to an average of one abortion every 94 seconds.
It's the equivalent of a Sandy Hook massacre every 41 minutes.
You disagree? Then you just might be a liberal. Tell me, if "choice" is so sacrosanct, why can't I "choose" to drink a 32oz soda in NYC? Or eat fois gras in California? Or wear a seal fur coat?
Because baby seals are more important than baby humans, that's why. Right? Go ahead, tell me how baby seals are worth protecting but your own species, your own flesh and blood, isn't! And Big Gulps are Bad. Not as bad as Sopher Clamps, but Mike Bloomberg wouldn't dare ban the tools of the abortionist. Ban AR-15s instead!
You create a culture which devalues life. That says life is not worth protecting. Where the unborn are disposable. And children are an inconvenience.
Then you wonder why a guy walks into an elementary school and opens fire.
Here's a thought. He learned everything he needed to know about respecting life from Cecile Richards and her henchwomen at Planned Parenthood.
They can't give your kid an aspirin. And some public schools won't call an ambulance when her arm is clearly broken. But now thanks to Mike Bloomberg every budding teenage Sandra Fluke in New York City is entitled to free birth control drugs. Oh, and unlimted doses of "Plan B", aka The Abortion Pill too.
All without parental consent or notification.
The New York City Department of Education is providing morning-after pills and other birth control drugs to students at 13 city high schools.
School nurse offices supplied with the contraceptives can reportedly dispense "Plan B" emergency contraception and other oral or injectable birth control to girls as young as 14 without telling their parents.
So let me get this straight. Girls can't get a tattoo, or use a tanning booth, or buy a Big Gulp. They can't smoke cigarettes. They're deemed too irresponsible to drink beer. And Daddy - Daughter dances are verbotten.
But little girls are entitled to all the hormone treatments their immature bodies desire? Because that's what birth control and Plan B are — hormones. Really Strong Hormones. Dispensed without a prescription, to a child who hasn't been examined by a doctor, no followup required.
This is known as "health care".
So their "political arm" can spend $3.2 million dollars on anti-Romney ads.
Planned Parenthood's Action Fund — which is the political arm of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America — plans to spend more than $3 million in Ohio and Virginia against Mitt Romney in the wake of his pledge to "get rid" of the women's health advocacy group.
The group is one of several liberal-leaning women's organizations planning to spend millions of dollars in crucial election states to swing undecided female voters toward President Obama.
Joining them are NARAL Pro-Choice America and EMILY's List, two abortion-rights groups who are also planning aggressive campaigns.
Ayup, your breast cancer screening and women's health dollars at work. Just not
for, you know, actual health care.
