McCrory delivers cookies, protesters donít like the message

Gov. Pat McCrory hasn't been willing to meet with the women (and a few men) protesting an abortion bill that opponents say restricts access to safe abortions. But he did stop by this afternoon with a plate of chocolate chip cookies.

McCrory was flanked by four security guards as he came out of the mansion gates. Before stepping onto common ground with the protesters – he went as far as the middle of the street between his mansion and the vigil – McCrory pointed directly at Jamie Sohn, a Chapel Hill resident.

“I was like, 'Me?' and he nodded,” she said during an interview shortly after.

The security guards stopped incoming traffic. Sohn walked out into the street to meet McCrory.

Sohn said McCrory told her: “ 'These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you.' " He handed her the plate of cookies, and waved as he walked away. She said she was too stunned to say anything back.

No one knew if the cookies were homemade – the protesters didn’t sample any before returning them. They slipped them under the mansion’s gate, along with a note that read: “We want women’s health care, not cookies.”

Every child they murder is one less that they will be asked to bake cookies for.

Indeed - if you want “women’s health care”, who’s standing in the way?

If you want to kill inconvenient babies, then WE will stand in the way.

Why do they call child executions “woman’s health care”?
The only real link I can think of is Mental health care.

I guess he was too clever for them since it seems they didn't get the message.

"Sohn said McCrory told her: “ 'These are for you. God bless you, God bless you, God bless you.' " "

Because everyone knows God blesses people who kill babies. McCrory must be some kind of flake.

Hearing “God bless you” must have been too much for her. It probably caused her ears to burn.

“...restricts access to safe abortions”

I am old enough to remember when abortions were illegal.

I can remember the propaganda at the time (like how gays are on every television program today) abortion stories were very common. Of course the stories were bias in support abortions. One of the themes was the need for “safe abortions”

Although I am sure they do not keep records, I suspect that more woman have died having “safe abortions” then ever died receiving an illegal abortion.

One reason of course is because there were fewer abortions being performed.

The sexual revolution of the 1960s and access to easy abortions has changed the social landscape of our society. We are no longer who we once were.

To paraphrase Thomas Wolfe you can not go back to once was.

We are living in a world created by socialist. By all standards it is not a very good place to be. The good news is what socialist have created can be destroyed. (Look how fast the Soviet Union collapsed)

You and I are probably in the same age group, then.

Whenever I hear the malarkey about the women dying from unsafe abortions before it was legal, I ask why we were not tripping over dead women right and left.

As you noted, the culture has changed greatly and at a rate that just boggles the mind. I think, though, that abortion is just one of the facets.

Sadly, many women stopped looking upon themselves as something special, a being to be respected. Women began acting coarse in language and in behavior toward others. Mothers stopped teaching their daughters to honor their bodies with modest dress and by saving their virginity until marriage.

And we have, today, a huge chunk of the population, most of those born after about 1970, who have never known a society in which the majority of women would not tarnish their reputations by using foul language or dressing in a suggestive manner, who certainly would never even consider shacking up, and who would be highly insulted if anyone assumed they would do such.

The times, indeed, have changed.
