The most evil: Kermit Gosnell and health departments in PA

Kermit Gosnell, abortion butcher

This man is despicable. But more despicable is the non-existent oversight in Pennsylvania, the lack of protection for women and babies in this state. If I hear another politician say that he is in favor of safe and rare abortions, I’m gonna puke. No one, at least in Pennsylvania, really cares about ‘safe and rare’ or the best health care for women and babies. If they did, this clinic would have been closed long – LONG – ago.

If this is not proof that the liberals do not care about minorities and especially in this case, minority women, nothing does. This ‘doctor’ and I use the word loosely, preyed on the most poor, frightened and ignorant among us. He took their money and took no concern in their health, welfare or even their lives.  He delivered viable babies and killed them.

And all this under the noses of physicians in positions to stop this, state medical boards that apparently wanted to protect the rights of doctors, health departments who could have shut him down but ignored complaints, politicians who gave lipservice to protecting the rights of women to choose.

Did those poor, frightened women have any idea what they were choosing? Did they know that their unwanted, unborn babies would have their spinal cords snipped and their babies body parts preserved in pickle jars and milk cartons, decorating his office and stored in his office refrigerator?

Oh, I think not.

And to add insult to injury, Gossnel was preforming abortions after the legal gestational age. (24 weeks is the limit, after that abortions are criminal in the state of Pennsylvania.)

Did these women know that they would leave his office with venereal disease, perforated organs and raging infections? Did they know that they would leave his office sterile?

Was it worth the $400 cash and late night abortions, for all this?

There should be no doubt what the answer is.

Where in all of this is NOW? Not a word from them – AGAIN – about something that threatens the health, welfare and life of women, especially minority women who they brag so loudly that they champion and protect.

There is no justice for a man like this. But he is not alone in guilt. The entire liberal system should be held to account for this. The evidence is clear: he is a murderer and the system is just as culpable. There is no concern by the liberals for the welfare of the poor, there never has been. Pennsylvania was run by pro-abortion politicians for decades.  Their excuse to not securing and protecting the health and safety of the female patients was their concern that they would be erecting barriers to their almighty right to choice! These progressives have protected and by silence, encouraged the very thing they profess to want to eradicate: back alley, midnight abortions and abortion butchers.

I call BullShit on all of that! They care nothing for those most vulnerable patients – the women and the unborn babies. What they do care about is the votes they will get from those mostly minority communities.

In the end, it’s all about the votes, even if it means you have to lie to minorities to get them.

Obama on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade

From Obama’s remarks regarding Roe v. Wade:

Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.

So what do you call ObamaCare, then if it’s not an intrusion in the private and very PERSONAL matters of an individual and his family?

I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.

His support is through Planned Parenthood which are nothing more than government funded abortion clinics that are aimed at minorities, especially Black Americans. Employees at these facilities are on tape saying as much. This is government sanctioned genocide, primarily against the Black community.

And there is no constitutional right to an abortion, just as there is no constitutional right to force any American to buy anything, including health insurance.

And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

What he’s saying is that the “burden” of unwanted pregnancies and abortion falls squarely on the woman and men are off the hook. He’s on record as saying that he didn’t want his “daughters punished” with an unintended and unwanted baby. But there is no “punishment” for the father, no burden for him. He can go his merry way and “fulfill his dreams” while the mother is left to the decision of abortion or the “burden” of caring for a child and her dreams are lost. Her future is bleak, that of being an single parent.

The burden of single parenthood is shouldered by the mother and the taxpayers with little or no consequences for the father. I see nothing in his statement – aside from “encouraging healthy relationships” and how he plans to do that from the WH is a mystery to me – that promotes the responsibility of fathers in this matter. On the contrary in fact, by this part of his statement: same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

NOW’s response shows desperation in a losing cause

When the Tebow ad aired during the Super Bowl and made not one mention of ABORTION, it really took the wind out of NOW’s sails. I’m guessing those old grey haired hags (I can call them that as I’m one of them now – not a NOW member, but the other thing) had a rushed Skype confab to determine a Plan B attack.

So, as you’ve all heard, they took the tried and tired stance of violence against women.

Of course, as is par for this out-dated, out of style organization they ignored the Betty White tackle and mud wrestling ad – which I thought was pretty funny.

I can’t imagine anyone else – anyone as normal as I – who saw the Tebow ad and thought what NOW thought. This ad worked and it worked because the 4 words that mattered are still with me days after it aired: Celebrate Family. Celebrate Life.

And who can seriously take issue with that? No one.  At least no one who wants to retain any kind of credibility. How much more un-American can you be to have an issue with FAMILY? So NOW had to create an issue out of thin air.

The Los Angeles Times reported that NOW President Terry O’Neill said the Tebow ad – I couldn’t make this up – glorifies violence against women.

“I am blown away at the celebration of the violence against women in it,” she said. “That’s what comes across to me even more strongly than the anti-abortion message. I myself am a survivor of domestic violence, and I don’t find it charming. I think CBS should be ashamed of itself.”

No, Terry O’Neill is the one who should be ashamed.

This violence against women thing really is a stretch and an obvious one. But to create an issue of this kind out of nothing and then to ignore actual cases of violence is nothing short of hypocritical. It’s circumstances like this that do nothing for their cause, credibility or the organization’s reputation.

Hours before the Tebow ad ran, former Tampa Bay Buccaneer Warren Sapp was arrested in Miami on a misdemeanor charge of domestic battery against a woman.

Where was Terry O’Neill on that one?

This makes that defunct organization of old women look desperate, bitter and shrill. And very out of touch with real issues that affect women and families.

… we get a ridiculous statement of outrage about an ad featuring a loving family.

We know why, of course.

The Tebow ad features a message to contact the group Focus on the Family, which strongly opposes abortion.

I’m not going to get into that debate here, but it’s worth noting that prior to the airing of the ad, when NOW was trying to force CBS to keep it off the air, O’Neill told The Associated Press, “That’s not being respectful of other people’s lives. It is offensive to hold one way out as being a superior way over everybody else’s.”

Yes, it is.

And to say that Tim and Pam Tebow have glorified violence against women is worse than offensive. It’s downright stupid.

Is stupidity, desperation and bitterness an image that old grey haired hags really want to put forth? Well, it’s not an image I want. In my old grey haired hag days, I want to be viewed as wise, kind and strong.

And still very much in love with my family.
