Proud Abortion Advocates Come Out of the Closet

Closet

Originally posted at Live Action News

Typically, “coming out of the closet” has to do with one’s sexual orientation. But “coming out” also means ’fessing up to something you’ve kept secret in order to avoid embarrassment.

When it comes to the subject of abortion, having a vehemently radical pro-choice advocate in the White House has emboldened militant abortion and even latent infanticide supporters to slowly inch their way of the closet.

A prime example of someone who’s no longer embarrassed is Melissa Harris-Perry. Melissa is the tampon-earring-wearing, Mitt Romney black-grandson-mocking talking head from MSNBC.

No longer ashamed of embracing the unthinkable, Melissa joined the ranks of bioethicists when she said she believes that life begins when parents “feel” life begins. Harris-Perry came out of the antiquated first-trimester closet when she answered her own question: “When does life begin?” Melissa’s answer: “[it] depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents.”

 

The implication of such a dramatic statement is that abortion is acceptable as long as the parents of an unborn child have the “feeling” that their baby is not a fully living human being. That sort of twisted philosophy seems to imply that freedom of choice can be exercised at any time, at any age.

Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow testified against a Florida bill that would require that babies born alive in botched abortions be given medical care. When asked the question, “If a baby is born on a table as a result of a botched abortion, what would Planned Parenthood want to have happen to that child that is struggling for life?” Ms. LaPolt Snow stuck her head out of the infanticide closet and said, “We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician.”

Recently, yet another representative came out at odds with those who oppose baby-killing. This time it was Planned Parenthood board member Valerie Tarico, Ph.D.

Besides Dr. Tarico being an angry ex-evangelical schooled at Wheaton College, home to The Billy Graham Center for Evangelicalism, she’s also one of 400 members of the Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest’s Board of Advocates, all of whom are united by their “personal integrity and commitment to the Planned Parenthood mission.”

How anyone can associate “personal integrity” with the deliberate destruction of innocent human life is in itself perplexing. Clearly, what is going on is an appeal to Americans who are abortion-friendly but conscience-conflicted. Tarico’s goal is to lay out a convincing argument that “it is morally or spiritually imperative that a woman can stop a pregnancy that is underway.”

To prove it, it appears the “born again” abortion promoter’s life goal is to convince the flock and anyone else who will fall for her twisted theological viewpoint that abortion is both ethically and spiritually acceptable.

In an article entitled “Abortion as a Blessing, Grace, or Gift – Changing the Conversation about Moral Values,” Valerie presents a recipe for abortion advocates to use so that the First Church of Feticide can “reclaim the moral high ground in the [abortion] debate.”

She defines “being able to stop an ill-conceived gestation” as a “sacred gift.” The author also portrays those who do the actual baby-butchering as doing the work of God. Ironically, the God she tries to imply they’re doing the work for is the main character in a Bible Valerie spends an inordinate amount of time mocking.

In other words, Tarico has come out of the closet as an abortion advocate on behalf of those who aren’t as flippant about the unthinkable as Melissa Harris-Perry and Alisa LaPolt Snow.

In Tarico’s past philosophical rantings, she mentions the value of “chosen children.” Citing “a personal example,” in her blog Tarico tells the story of why, over fear of possible toxoplasmosis-induced blindness and brain lesions, she aborted her unborn child after the first trimester.

Her reasoning concerns the higher moral ground and the sacredness of the larger village. Tarico said she feared that by having sightless offspring, she’d be negatively impacting that child and any future children, should she decide to let any of them live. In addition, she’d be “risking [the] ability to give to the community [and] possibly creating a situation in which our family needed to suck more out of society than we could put back into it.”

The only thing missing from Valerie Tarico’s abortion-as-religion argument is the moral and spiritual validation of Melissa Harris-Perry’s belief and Planned Parenthood’s practice of slaying newborn babies.

It’s undeniable that embarrassments over points of view and actions that used to be shameful and kept to oneself are gone. Instead, there are those emerging unabashed from the darkest closets who push pseudo-religiosity in hopes of spiritualizing selfishness and endorsing murder.

Garroting Throats and Hailing Satan

proabort22-e1373304985649-300x183Originally posted at The Blacksphere

Recently pro-choice “keep your laws off my body” protestors in Texas were serious about aborting the unborn.

So much so that putting their hands, in a violent way, on anyone who tried to put laws on their bodies was apparently considered a justifiable form of hand-to-hand combat.

Supporters of Texas state senator Wendy R. Davis, the woman Barack Obama praised for her filibuster of a vote on abortion legislation that aimed to save the lives of fetuses over the gestational age of 20 weeks, threatened Texas representatives, including pro-life Jonathan Stickland and his staff.

The protestors vowed that if the right to destroy babies, agonizing death or not, over the age of 20 weeks was not upheld (btw, it was not), normally peace-loving pro-abortion types would respond with their usual measure of tolerance by seeking out and garroting pro-life throats.

Lest we forget, many abortion advocates are of the Mini Cooper-driving/Coexist/PETA ilk, unless of course the right to scald, slice, or suction the unborn to death meets with opposition.  Then all bets are off.  If conflict arises, the pick-a-daisy-for-peace/Patchouli incense-burning crowd turns into ‘face pummeling‘ barbarians who openly express heartfelt wishes for innocent women to be raped.

Plus, judging from what went on in Austin, Texas last week, in lieu of a live appearance from Moloch, it appeared that pro-choice advocates were of the mind to take to the streets to exercise their First Amendment right to free speech and religion by drowning out prayers being offered for the preservation of life with chants of “Hail Satan!”

“Hail Satan” or not, in response to that and other unseemly threats, while the proceedings were taking place members of Stickland’s staff were convinced it would be wise to take the necessary measures to ensure personal safety by carrying licensed, concealed handguns.

Wait, what?  Handguns? Conceal and carry?

What if the president who tweeted that he ‘stood with Wendy’ for her brave stance on behalf of slaughtering the unborn were to find out about the guns?  Isn’t he the guy fully dedicated to the safety of all children?  What if toddlers holding up signs saying things like “If I wanted the government in my womb, I’d f— a senator” were accidentally shot by pro-lifers protecting themselves from the minions of hell manifested on the steps of the Texas State Capitol?

Either way, thus far, Barack Obama has been known to personally congratulate friends on their multifaceted love-related accomplishments by phoning up people like sexually promiscuous contraceptive-demander Sandra Fluke, out-of-the-closet NBA dribbler Jason Collins, and geriatric lesbian same-sex marriage activist Edie Windsor.

For those he considers friends, correction is never offered, by telephone or otherwise.

Therefore, although he is usually concerned, first and foremost, about the safety of innocent Americans, for some reason Barack Obama has not felt moved to dial up the rowdy individuals demanding the right to kill babies. Nor has he requested that in the future they represent his radical pro-choice policy stances by comporting themselves as living examples of love, kindness and mutual respect.

And about that shocking invocation of Satan being shouted out by rabid pro-choice activists? Well, we already know that the former community organizer’s favorite author, Saul Alinsky, dedicated Obama’s favorite tome Rules for Radicals to the same entity that the women hailing Satan were giving public honors.

Based on the Alinsky precedence, there’s really no reason for the president to admonish crowds of enthusiastic abortion supporters for participating in what anyone other than him would consider inappropriate prayer and supplication.

Most importantly, because the president has never been shy about inserting himself into state-level politics (think Arizona immigration law), or local news for that matter (think Henry Louis Gates Jr.), the only conclusion one can come to is that Barack Obama is expressing his opinion on Texas’s SB5 with his silence.

Thus, by saying nothing, Obama sent a message that he is of like mind with the grace-confronting group who forced cherubic toddlers to hold up crudely drawn pictures of wire hangers.

Suffice it to say that it’s likely Barack Obama agrees that, henceforth and in perpetuity, whenever the right to execute the innocent is obstructed it would be perfectly acceptable to abandon the peacetime tactic of quietly slaughtering 3,000 babies a day and take up arms against those who want to stop the shedding of innocent blood.

What is Malia Obama Getting for Her 4th of July Birthday?

article-2355977-14E1441D000005DC-93_634x439-300x207Originally posted at The Blacksphere

Regardless of our political disagreements with Michelle and Barack Obama, it’s hard to deny that the couple have been blessed with two adorable daughters, Malia who just turned 15-years-old, and Sasha who turned 12-years-old a few weeks back.

Malia turned 15 on the 4th of July, and she’s turning out to be a lovely young woman who carries herself with quiet grace and aplomb.

Happy Birthday Malia!

There is one thing though. When most Americans look at Miss Malia and feisty little Sasha, what they see are two fresh-faced innocents.  These girls are young maidens with the world at their fingertips and life’s joys before them as they grow before the nation’s eyes from little girls into women.

Barack Obama, their father, and their mother Michelle, likely view their daughters the same way – virginal, precious, and unscathed.

However, the sad truth is that American girls are not extended the same courtesy from the President and First Lady.

Instead, 12 and 15-year-olds are viewed by the left as sex-crazed animals in need of publicly funded sex education, government gifts of contraception, and, if need be, surreptitious transportation to abortion clinics where invasive procedures are administered on them, paid for with taxpayer monies, without parental consent.

This 4th of July Malia will have a birthday party and probably enjoy a giant slice of buttercream-iced cake decorated with pastel-colored flowers that symbolize her sweetness and purity.  Along side that sugary confection will be a pile of brightly wrapped presents that hopefully will bring Obama’s oldest daughter much joy.

big a shame it would be if Malia’s parents gifted her instead with a year’s supply of Plan B, and a cell phone with a speed dial that connects directly to the nearest ‘mistake-proof’ Planned Parenthood clinic – just in case.  To even think such a thing about the President’s sweet girl is, quite frankly, crude and unseemly.

That’s why, this year, on Malia Obama’s birthday the nation is requesting that Mr. and Mrs. Obama extend to our preteen and teenage daughters the same respect and dignity we believe is rightly due Sasha and Malia.

 

Chelsea Clinton’s Death Wish?

It’s official.  Either Chelsea Clinton has a latent death wish, or the sole progeny of the supposed “smartest woman in the world” isn’t all that bright.

A little background:  Ivy League-educated Chelsea Clinton attended Stanford University, NYU, and Columbia University, and even the University of Oxford. Yet, despite the hundreds of thousands of dollars in elite education, it appears that Bill Clinton’s little girl who grew up to be Marc Mezvinsky’s wife doesn’t have the brainpower of a pea.

Speaking at the recent Women Deliver conference, which should have been called the Women Please Don’t Deliver conference, abortion advocate Chelsea Clinton was pontificating on the tragedy of her great grandmother Della Murray delivering her maternal grandmother Dorothy Howell Rodham out of wedlock.

Chelsea told her rapt audience of equally intellectually-challenged liberals, who probably applauded wildly at her deep insights on disposing of unborn babies, that her great grandparents Edwin and Della “did not have access to services that are so crucial that Planned Parenthood helps provide.”

In other words, two generations later, Chelsea Clinton regrets that in 1919 Great Grandma Howell didn’t have access to a clinic that would have eliminated little Dorothy.  Apparently Chelsea is upset that the late Dorothy was born, grew up and eventually gave birth to Chelsea’s beloved mother Hillary who then, in turn, gave birth to Chelsea.

Yoo hoo, Chelsea!  Della + Dorothy = Hillary = Chelsea. Della – Dorothy = Hillary & Chelsea.

 

Barack ‘Corleone’ Obama – the Boss of Bosses

CoreloenOriginally posted at The Blacksphere

Michael Corleone is the lead character in the The Godfather, a film trilogy based on the novel by Mario Puzo of the same name.

In the story, after the death of family boss, Don Vito Corleone, and the assassination of older brother Sonny, baby-faced, brainy Marine Michael was forced against his better judgment to ascend to the head of the powerful New York Mafia family.  The favored-son/war hero turned out to be a cold-blooded murderer determined, at all costs, to maintain power.

In one of the most memorable scenes in the film, while the protagonist’s henchmen are about the business of massacring the newly-installed Boss’s nemeses, an angelic Corleone stands in a church and vows to assume responsibility for his newborn nephew’s spiritual upbringing.

[youtube]http://youtu.be/1CDlBLvc3YE[/youtube]

In the real world, accusations are dogging Barack Obama’s beleaguered administration.

As a result, American politics are currently in a state of unrelenting tumult that resembles a Mafia turf war. Yet despite the many scandals that undeniably have Barack Obama’s thin-skinned, vindictive fingerprints all over them, the president’s upper lip and palms remain sweat-free and Obama’s perpetual smile projects a Michael Corleone-confident air of unflustered self-assurance.

Pundits seem convinced that the multi-tiered revelations of harassment, spying, cronyism, and discrimination are discrete incidents, all of which Obama’s envoys swear the president knew nothing about.

But, what is more likely is that all the scandals are a result of an individual in the highest echelons of power dispatching capo-style henchmen in the IRS, the EPA, the NSA, and the Department of Justice to do the dirty work of disposing those President Obama perceives as potential problems.

Hence, what America may be witnessing is the long-overdue demise of political Don Barack Obama for attempting to advance progressivism in the same manner Godfather Michael Corleone went about eradicating the Barzini family.

For four years Obama has comported himself in a manner similar to the cool, calculating Michael Corleone.  In the movie, while Michael piously recited the rite of Baptism in the Church of Saint Joachim and Anne, hellfire and brimstone were simultaneously raining down on his foes compliments of the dedicated foot soldiers he had dispatched

In the shadow of the baptistery a soulless Corleone mouthed the vow that he rejected the “glamour of evil” as well as “Satan and all of his works,” and did so knowing full well that the evil works of the devil were precisely the tactics he embraced.  It seems as though the more power Michael Corleone amassed, the higher the body count grew.

The Godfather’s award-winning cinematography provided moviegoers a potent juxtaposition of images that moved methodically between the sacrament of Baptism and the sacrament of slaughter. The film’s brutality visually conveyed the message that a power-hungry man has the capacity to assume the chameleon-like role of sainted godfather while secretly commanding the extermination of his rivals.

And isn’t that exactly what appears to be going on in America?

Apparently, behind the scenes, Barack Obama has been behaving like a Mafia boss attempting to overthrow the US government. Much like Michael Corleone, the president recited the Oath of Office, disingenuously vowed to uphold the US Constitution, and as we’ve come to find out, did so with about as much sincerity as Michael Corleone denouncing the works of Satan.

Don Obama views conservatives, tea party groups, pro-lifers, and even honest journalists as political enemies.

And so while feigning placidity, a ferocious Obama continues to fête world leaders, raise money for the DNC, bless Planned Parenthood, spout meaningless platitudes at memorials, and diabolically project a false humanity, like Michael Corleone assuming responsibility for his godson’s rite of passage into Christianity.

In addition, Obama quotes Scripture he doesn’t believe and cries over children whose lives he’d just as soon abort.

As the president’s agents of Constitutional mayhem dressed in the uniform of Attorney General, IRS Commissioner and Secretaries of the DHS and HHS go about eliminating the opposition, an engaging Obama smiles warmly, croons an Al Green verse or two here or there, and munches on corn dogs.

The problem is that sadly, what America is witnessing is neither a best-selling novel nor an Academy Award -winning movie. The man whose narcissistic personality makes it impossible for him to endure criticism or to allow his power base to be threatened is not a fictional character.

The smirking grin America is subjected to daily belongs to an actual person whose smug attitude confirms that somehow he feels justified dispatching high-class hoodlums to handle some of the more unpleasant aspects of his grand plan.

The truth is that the President views a large swathe of the nation in the same way the callous and cunning Michael Corleone viewed the other Dons he ordered his wise guys to snuff out.

Much like Michael Corleone’s goons shooting up Moe Green, under bosses Doug Schulman and Eric Holder stealthily target the First and Second Amendments and do it while the person who’s calling the shots publicly rebukes the malevolence exhibited by those to whom he’s secretly issued marching orders.

That’s why, as questions multiply and Congressional panels are established to address the imminent political blood bath, Barack Obama is looking more like the head of a crime family than an American president. And thus far, although he’s managed to remain largely unscathed, it’s becoming clearer that what’s really at the root of these scandals is a hypersensitive ideologue with an unquenchable desire to maintain and advance his power.

Thus, it’s safe to surmise that what America is witnessing is not a cosmic coincidence, but the revelation of a veritable scandal conglomerate.

And chances are, despite the smug confidence the president constantly exudes, it’s likely the driving force behind the outrageous injustices directed toward certain Americans is indeed a man with the ruthless bearing of Michael Corleone, politically executing whomever and whatever necessary to secure his position as America’s Godfather.

Why not an ‘Abortion Advocacy Medal of Distinction’ for Barack Obama?

Obama 2012

Originally posted at LiveAction News

Amid the Gosnell hubbub, according to Jay Carney, President Obama canceled his plans at the last minute to deliver the keynote speech at Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s annual fundraising dinner.  Instead, he has chosen to speak to PPFA supporters on the morning following the fundraiser.  It’s certainly likely that Obama is still interested in helping raise baby-killing money, not to mention reaffirming that he has no problem with slaughterhouses as long as they have nice waiting rooms and the attendants wear colorful scrubs.  The difference is that this time he’s chosen to do it in a low-key way.

Held in Washington DC, the theme of the event this year is “Time for Care,” because everyone who’s anyone knows that the perfect way to show you care is to fill red biohazard bags with 300,000 lifeless infants a year.

Full of effusive gratitude, Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards recently said this about Barack Obama:

He understands that access to birth control and preventive health care are economic issues for women and their families. We fought alongside him to ensure that women’s health access was expanded in the landmark Affordable Care Act, and now we have to fight hard to ensure that the full promise of health care reform is realized for millions of women.

In other words, Cecile is expressing personal thanks to the president for dedicating the first two years of his presidency to securing taxpayer-funded free birth control, morning-after pills, and above all, free abortion, with the occasional ‘healthcare’ mammogram thrown in for cover.

Cecile Richards appreciates Obama for his support because she feels that he “has done more than any president in history for women’s health and rights.” When it comes to lasting legacies, what could be better than an inscription on a placard hung in the Barack H. Obama Library that touts his support for the slaughter of innocents?

Barack Obama missing the dinner is probably disappointing, but Dr. Ruth Westheimer will still be there!  For her “lifelong commitment to empowering women and men to talk openly and honestly about sex and sexual health,” Dr. Ruth will be awarded the Margaret Sanger Award, which is Planned Parenthood’s highest honor, named after the well-known eugenicist.  Let’s not forget, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, started the organization based on a racist philosophy which held that “The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it” – and even more so if those infant family members happened to be black.

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is also an honoree.  There is a possibility the mayor will be accompanied by Barack Obama’s “brainstorming” border security expert/liberal Hollywood shill, Eva Longoria.  For his dedication to protecting women’s healthcare in the City of Los Angeles, Antonio is due to receive the “Care. No Matter What” award.

Dr. LaVerne Tolbert, a former Planned Parenthood board member, claims that:

In California, children are targeted for abortions through school-based clinics and school-linked clinics…Girls are taken off campus to a Planned Parenthood clinic, where abortions are performed without parental consent or notification.

Well, those revelations certainly explain the “No Matter What” aspect of Villaraigosa’s award. “No matter what” the age and “no matter what” mom and dad may think, esteemed California officials are there to make sure that “no matter what,” no one and nothing stands in the way of exercising reproductive rights.

As for Barack Obama, keynote speech cancellation aside, after five years of ensuring access to abortion this president is head and shoulders above the 43 presidents who have gone before him.  Therefore, it would certainly be appropriate, in honor of courageous late-term abortionists everywhere, if Planned Parenthood bestowed upon anti-Born Alive Act Barack in absentia a new award called the ‘Abortion Advocacy Medal of Distinction.’

Nonetheless, whether pro-choice or pro-life, either way one would be hard-pressed to deny that Barack Obama has certainly earned Planned Parenthood accolades.  After all, this cancellation is the first time the president has allowed concerns about public reaction to pictures of crumpled newborns in garbage cans to force him to disappoint likeminded acolytes.  Besides, over the years, whenever it’s needed, Barack Obama has faithfully scoffed at critics of abortion and taken a firm but polite stand on the side of unrighteousness.

It’s those types of sterling pro-choice community credentials that make it surprising that Barack Obama has decided to pay heed to the controversy surrounding the grisly trial underway in Philadelphia.  Not to worry though, since this president has proven time and again that he strongly supports the iconic abortion provider, because unlike no-frills killer Kermit Gosnell, Planned Parenthood has built a first-rate reputation for killing and disposing of babies in both a sanitary and timely manner — except when it doesn’t.

Eye Rolls and Egg Rolls at the White House

wheer13_logorgb-300x297

Over the past four years the Obamas have made it quite clear that Easter at the White House has nothing to do with Jesus, His death, or resurrection.

Instead, the White House Easter is about rolling eggs and rolling eyes, but hopefully not rolling papers.  This year at the 135th White House Egg Roll, which is on April Fool’s Day, there are plans to trick 30,000 attendees into believing that Easter at the White House is really about Easter.

It’s not!  This year the theme of the Easter function is “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!” which, on the holiest Christian holiday of the year, takes the focus off the true meaning of Jesus’ victory over death and the grave and places it on Michelle Obama and her “Let’s Move” initiative.  It’s sort of how Christ’s birth became all about Bo the first dog frolicking in the snow on the North Lawn.

With that in mind, don’t expect to see Easter lilies anywhere near 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Instead, little kiddies, all excited about getting a candy basket stuffed with chocolate bunnies and marshmallow peeps from the president, will be gagging down kale chips and celery sticks and attempting to smile politely while wishing they were dead.

Jesus warned His disciples: “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Based on the first lady’s emphasis on body over soul, apparently, despite sitting in the pews of Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Trinity United Church of Christ, Michelle never committed that particular Scripture verse to memory.

Nonetheless, the White House Egg Roll will include a bit of a personal note, because if Kid President Barack Obama had a son, he would look like special guest star Kid President Robbie Novak. In addition to Kid President, Tommy McFly will be MC-ing the event.  Hopefully, McFly doesn’t lose his head and land on any of the food in the cooking stations.

Barack Obama, Planned Parenthood, and pictures of one million dead

While we can measure 1,000,000 pennies, we cannot measure 1,000,000 lost lives. (Photo credit: Marcin Wichary on Flickr)

Recently, Barack Obama’s most beloved purveyor of choice, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, released their 2011-2012 annual report. The organization’s current data is printed on a well-designed, brightly colored pamphlet. On the Affiliate Medical Services page, along with a corresponding pie chart, is a gray slice of pie that represents the 1/3-of-a-million living human beings the organization exterminated just last year.

Obama and Planned Parenthood

The statistics cite figures which claim that in fiscal year 2011, 333,964 babies were destroyed. That is an impressive figure even in abortion-on-demand circles, especially for those who work tirelessly to convince America that pap smears are Planned Parenthood’s specialty.

Yet despite the bad economy, Planned Parenthood touts assets totaling $1.2 billion, $542.4 million of which comes from “government health services grants and reimbursements,” including “payments from Medicaid managed care plans.” In other words, whether pro-life Americans like it or not, tax dollars are helping facilitate the unfettered slaughter of preborn children.

There is no denying that thanks to eroding morals, an obliging president, and ample government funding, feticide continues to prosper. Between 2011 and 2012, the death factory disguised as a women’s healthcare provider served orange juice and crushed ice to 333,964 women after slicing, dicing, and suctioning helpless babies from inhospitable wombs.

During the previous year, Planned Parenthood clinic workers only emptied 329,445 empty juice cups into the red biohazard bags already occupied by 329,445 dead babies. In the death-for-profit business, the addition of 4,519 tiny corpses is an admirable uptick worth celebrating.

As for the realm of celebrity representatives, if Planned Parenthood held a fundraising telethon, their main shill President Barack Obama would be the organization’s own version of Jerry Lewis. Coincidentally, from 2009 to 2012, in the three years that Obama’s presence had been gracing the Oval Office and with his hearty endorsement, Planned Parenthood memorialized his historic presidency by executing 995,687 innocents. That’s nearly one million helpless unborn children coldly denied the right to life.

One million is a big number, and in honor of Obama’s second term, one million is exactly the amount of dollars the president is requesting rich donors contribute to his upcoming inaugural celebration, or, for the mathematically challenged, about one dollar per baby aborted by Planned Parenthood during his first term.

In the meantime, while Americans spend time trying to figure out just how many dollars those millionaires actually make, Planned Parenthood is busily going about the work of slaughtering perfectly healthy pre-term infants.

Even still, Planned Parenthood continues to insist that abortion does not make up the bulk of their industry because, according to them, killing a paltry one million babies per three-year interval is modest at best. Maybe the problem is that the abortion giant is so busy dispatching the unborn that they can’t take the time to figure out what 1,000,000 really means.

Lest we forget, one million is 1000 X 1000. If one million sports fans gathered together, they could fill 62.5 16,000-seat arenas. A million days is 2,740 years. A million miles is 40 times around the circumference of the earth. Sixteen miles equals approximately one million inches. A million pennies weighs 10,000 pounds, or as much as a circus elephant. If you counted at a rate of once per second it would take about 11 full days to count to one million, and if it were little babies you were counting, every 94 seconds would represent another life being snuffed out in a friendly downtown Planned Parenthood clinic.

For those who care, in order to understand the magnitude of one million, talking dots, pennies, seconds, years, miles and filling football stadiums does provide some context. However, when it comes to abortion, the figure one million represents very real, very dead human beings.

To put one million into a people perspective, let’s just say that if the entire population of San Jose, California, or 945,942 people, were to be wiped out in an earthquake, how would America react if the victims were recorded as cold numbers on a carnival-colored page with a Ferris-wheel pie chart to chronicle the event?

Even more deceitful and disturbing is that the left and their liberal president dismiss the purposeful termination of one million people as a mere pittance. But when a disturbed individual with a gun massacres 20 first graders, Americans are asked to take seriously President Obama’s dismay over the deaths of children whose disposal he would have funded had they been in the womb instead of a classroom.

In the end, Planned Parenthood’s 2011-2012 annual report is quite informative. What it proves is that last year, Barack Obama’s dearly-loved abortion mill staffed their clinics with conscience-free sociopaths, outfitted them in blue scrubs, and provided them with the stainless steel weapons needed to take the lives of many more children than a lone madman with a loaded gun ever could.

What You Didn’t Know About Your Neighborhood

One of the most stunning attributes of liberalism today is duplicity.  What other group uses legality as a basis to defend exterminating the unborn, yet when it comes to owning a handgun, legality becomes irrelevant?

From the White House to Your House, the push is now on to paint gun owners in a negative light and clearly, it’s working.  For example, in an effort to better serve New York’s Westchester and Rockland Counties, the Gannett-owned Journal News took it upon itself, without notifying the affected parties, to make public all the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of residents in the area with registered handguns.

The Journal News was so concerned about informing its readership of the prospective danger gun owners pose that it published a detailed interactive map with red and blue dots pinpointing the location of residents licensed to own pistols or revolvers and permit holders who “have purchased a firearm or updated the information on a permit in the past five years.”

Until recently, it was thought assault weapons were the menace.  Now, owning a gun, any gun, is right up there with committing a sex crime.  The Journal News’ address listing might as well have been a sex offender registry because gun stigma is now running a close second to being a convicted pedophile.  The only difference is that in the gun owner’s case, no crime was committed.

Janet Hasson, publisher and president of the Journal News Media Group, defended making the databank information available when she said:

One of our roles is to report publicly available information on timely issues, even when unpopular. We knew publication of the database (as well as the accompanying article providing context) would be controversial, but we felt sharing information about gun permits in our area was important in the aftermath of the Newtown shootings.

For Ms. Hasson, publishing names, addresses, and telephone numbers wasn’t enough.  It sounds as if Ms. Hasson is highly suspicious that every gun owner in America is a prospective Adam Lanza.

The disappointed newspaper publisher/president said that in the “aftermath of the Newtown shootings” her newspaper had “wanted to publish even more information.” Maybe Janet feels the drive-by harassers she has already provided with directions to private residences would have also appreciated the political affiliation of all Rockland and Westchester County gun owners.

The Florida-based school for journalists, the Poynter Institute, disagrees with Journal News’ tactics.

According to a Poynter Institute faculty member, “Unwarranted publishing of the names of permitted owners just encourages gun owners to skip the permitting.”  That means that thanks to the newspaper’s irresponsible actions, in order to maintain anonymity normally upstanding citizens may be driven to illegal gun ownership.

Despite the controversy, many defenders of the Journal News took to Twitter to express their anti-gun approval. One Tweet said: “The gun permit maps are an effective way of showing how horribly widespread gun ownership is.” Excuse me, but “horribly?”  Another relieved parent thanked the Journal News, saying, “Please thank them. This could be a turning point. I do not want my daughter playing in a house with guns.” Earth to Mom: kids have been known to drown in toilets, so are houses with bathrooms a problem too?

What is stunning about all this is the duplicitous left backing private information being made public. Apparently, in “right-to-privacy” circles, confidentiality only applies when it comes to the names, addresses, and phone numbers of individuals spotted at Rockland and Westchester abortion clinics.

And here’s where the deceit really kicks in. Aren’t these the usual suspects who scream “intimidation” when an old grandma spends her mornings praying the rosary outside an abortion clinic?

If, as Janet Hasson contends, “timeliness and popularity” surrounding an issue determines whether private information should be made public, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Journal News could also provide all pro-life members of the community the names and addresses of those seen at the local Planned Parenthood clinic? After all, having a gun owner live next door is certainly a concern to anti-gun people, but to anti-abortion people, having a neighbor who’s had an abortion living on the other side of the fence generates a ton of anxiety too.

Therefore, in lieu of a public database, the only hope that an intrepid journalist like Dwight R. Worley has to find a treasure trove of confidential abortion information is in a recycling bin or a dumpster.

So, it appears that all it takes to be branded a potential danger to society is a reckless newspaper publishing an article entitled “The gun owner next door: What you don’t know about the weapons in your neighborhood.” And, if that’s the case, then fair-minded anti-gun liberals should be open to warning concerned Rockland and Westchester County anti-abortion residents about ‘That woman next door: What you don’t know about the abortions in your neighborhood.’

Are the lives of children the ‘price of our freedom?’

NewtownThe other night Barack Obama came to Newtown, Connecticut to attend the Sandy Hook Prayer Vigil.  He was there to offer condolences to the grieving and to honor the memory to the individuals killed in the massacre, whom he described as “twenty beautiful children and six remarkable adults.”

Of the six women who died, Obama conceded that “[t]hey responded as we all hope we might respond in such terrifying circumstances — with courage and with love, giving their lives to protect the children in their care.” Right from the start, women being praised for laying down their lives for a child provided a stark contrast to the Sandra Fluke culture Obama usually promotes, where selfishness trumps the sanctity of life.

Nonetheless, the man who warned against tying politics to tragedy segued smoothly from grief and prayerfulness into using a catastrophe for his own political purposes.

Oblivious to the contradiction posed when a person who believes that a fetus is not a human and that medical care should not be given to infants born alive in botched abortions speaks touchingly of newborn babes, Obama said “With their very first cry, this most precious, vital part of ourselves — our child — is suddenly exposed to the world, to possible mishap or malice.”

The President, who in the past has likened unwanted pregnancy to punishment, then shared that “[e]very parent knows there is nothing we will not do to shield our children from harm.”

After discussing parents protecting their children, Obama entered African proverb “it takes a village to raise a child” territory. The President suggested that parents are shocked when they realize that “loving your children isn’t enough to keep them safe.” According to Obama, “teaching them well, is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community” – and most importantly, “with the help of a nation,” otherwise known as a liberal-ideology-pushing entity called the U.S. government.

The Collectivist-in-Chief then proceeded to shepherd America’s children into the village with the following pronouncement: “And in that way, we come to realize that we bear a responsibility for every child because we’re counting on everybody else to help look after ours; that we’re all parents; that they’re all our children.”

Then, he said “This is our first task — caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.” Amen to that one Mr. President, because right about now it’s good to know that caring for all our children is what could stem the tide of judgment.

From there, the Planned Parenthood cheerleader with the 100% NARAL voting record asked a question that he should pose to himself:

And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we are meeting our obligations? Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children — all of them — safe from harm? Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?

America’s most famous feticide and infanticide crusader, answered himself correctly when he then stated, “[i]f we’re honest with ourselves, the answer is no… And we will have to change.”

He then recounted the grim fact that “Since [he’s] been President, this is the fourth time [America] came together to comfort a grieving community torn apart by a mass shooting.” What Obama failed, or chose not to point out, was that since 1966 there have been 16 mass shootings in America, eight of which – 50 percent – took place on his watch.

In response to a 953% increase in the annual mass-shooting rate in the last four years as compared to the previous 42 years, what did the President propose?  More change, of course!

Therefore, in anticipation of the forthcoming arguments that are bound to arise in response to the sort of ‘change’ he plans to implement, the President took preliminary steps to defuse predictable resistance. Obama’s vigil visit lay the groundwork for the “meaningful action” he promised on the night of the shootings, by jumping in front of the debate.

The President argued that “We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true.”  However, in anticipation of enacting new laws, he then said “No single law — no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world, or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society.” Using that kind reasoning, the truth should not be an “excuse for inaction.”

From the sound of things, it seems America’s most ardent advocate for choice is about to circumvent the opposition to address gun laws, because “what other choice do we have” besides his choice?  During a prayer service, America’s Executive Power addict inappropriately flexed his sovereign muscle when he said that “in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this” he would, once again, use “whatever power this office holds.”

Liberals believe 60 million dead babies and counting is a price worth paying for the right to choose. Now it sounds like the Second Amendment might be the price America is about to pay to ensure the safety of the same children who, were they inside a womb instead of a classroom, Obama would have zero problem aborting.

Signaling that freedom is about to be targeted and after expressing unwillingness to “accept events like this as routine,” Obama then posed an unsettling question: “Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?”

Let’s remember – for community organizer types, random carnage is not only a crisis, it’s an opportunity that cries out for a remedy, especially when the death of innocent children provide the motivation to guilt the resistant into submission.  Therefore, the tone and direction of the President’s remarks seemed to suggest that disagreeable Constitutionalists had better get out of the way.

Then, exploiting a grieving community, the President probed further, “Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?” That statement should incite terror in every American who cherishes liberty.

And so Barack Obama offered Sandy Hook his presidential condolences, tearless weeping, and poignant personal anecdotes on parenting. However, after the statement that indicated he plans to place the unpredictable security of a few above the established freedom of many, “the price of our freedom” was truly a chilling choice of words.
