How’s this for evil?
Over at MSNBC a nit-wit talker opined that life begin not at conception, but rather when parents decide it begins (and we know that parents doesn’t really include the father!).
Might I add that before this story I don’t recall of ever having heard of this person?
MSNBC Host: Life Begins When Parents Say it Does, Not Based on Science
by Steven Ertelt
MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry drew negative reactions from people this past weekend when she wore tampon earrings during a broadcast, telling viewers they were made especially for her to wear to demonstrate her opposition to the ban on late-term abortions in Texas that Governor Rick Perry signed.
Now, Harris Perry is at it again this time telling viewers that human life doesnt begin at conception. Instead, it begins, the MSNBC host contends, when the parents think it begins not when science says it does.
When does life begin? I submit the answer depends an awful lot on the feeling of the parents. A powerful feeling but not science, Harris-Perry said on her show Sunday. The problem is that many of our policymakers want to base sweeping laws on those feelings.
That wasnt the only outrageous thing Harris Perry said, according to a CNS News report:
Harris-Perry also said that women with unwanted pregnancies do not share the same experience as the Duchess of Cambridge, who gave birth Monday to an 8 pound, 6 ounce baby boy who is now third in line to the British throne.
When a pregnancy is wanted . . . it is easy to think of the bump as a baby, Harris-Perry said. But not every pregnancy is a fairy tale.
An unwanted pregnancy can be biologically the same as a wanted one. But the experience can be entirely different, she added.
Imagine the ramifications of this.
If I am in any position of authority or have anything to do with your care, when I decide you are no longer alive, or your life isn’t worth what it once did to me, ….
Life News has the video. HERE
Nit-wit ... there’s a term I haven’t heard in a long time.
So glad I don’t get MSNBC
I guess she'd think it legal to kill Geraldo Rivera, who is loved by nobody.
so pretty much you can retro-abort a 15 year old trouble maker that has a medical condition and declare them not to have been alive.. and that’s it?
Then I say 18. Before that parents can end it if the kid is out of line.
Political extremism can cause insanity.
Another Harvard educated indoctrinated idiot. Don’t forget Affirmative Action baby!
Political extremism can cause insanity.
Not to mention millions of murders every year.
MSNBC, their motto must be “You don’t have to be smart to work for us, just breathing”
So Andrea Yaeger can go free? I mean, sounds like they believe the only difference between her and a someone who wants a late term abortion, is geography.
Womb vs. Cradle
I saw a video of students at Georgetown or something signing a petition to legalize killing children after they are born.
I hope he’s wrong, my parents aren’t too happy with me these days....
MSNBC is really the poorest excuse for TV “news”. In all the world, UHF midnight Channel 38 in Sudan has a higher viewer audience.
Sofa King Stupid.
Well, now, that’s very scientific, aint it?
Andrea Jaeger is a tennis star who became a nun.
Your right - I added on another syllable. I was too tired to look her up. And she makes me physically ill to see her.
I heard that life begins at 40.
Life begins when the kids leave home and the dog dies.
Can this host document that the host’s parents decided the host’s life began at all? If not, can anyone eliminate the host or are the parents the only ones who can?
I’m going to make sure my teenage daughter reads this thread...
Yes, and the blood of countless Chicago children is on the hands of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Sharpton and all the other leftwing race pimps and urban plantation bosses.
She’s another poor soul overwhelmed by relativism. I am the only arbiter of reality and what I think is true even if concrete evidence contradicts it. Usually the leftists cry for empirical data, but not when it comes to the biological fact that human life begins at the moment of conception.
Also, as most likely irreligious, she idolizes her own ridiculous opinion because of her runaway pride.
“Francis of Assisi tells us we should work to build peace. But there is no true peace without truth! There cannot be true peace if everyone is his own criterion, if everyone can claim exclusively his own rights, without at the same time caring for the good of others, of everyone, on the basis of the nature that unites every human being on earth.”
-Pope Francis, Address, March 22, 2013
“If there is one class of men whom history has proved especially and supremely capable of going quite wrong in all directions, it is the class of highly intellectual men.
... Modern intelligence won’t accept anything on authority. But it will accept anything without authority. ... All ... matter. You matter. I matter.” -G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)
“Some people are so smart they’re stupid.” -My Mom

This nobody/know nothing is not the problem, the problem is that the dolt in the White House agrees with her.
This woman is mentally ill and needs help. Tampons hanging from her head - killing babies - she is definitely a very demented woman.
Is this nit-wit recommending parents can be excused for child murder at any time from birth to eighteen years old? Why am I not surprised at the evil imaginings of liberals?
“Run Johnny, Run! The abortion truck is coming! The abortion truck is coming!”
Has she asked her parents if she is alive yet?
