  • Why the Pa. Abortion Doc's Case Is About Poverty, Not Roe v. Wade (Barf alert)

    01/21/2011 6:41:36 AM PST · by MNDude · 17 replies
    Pro-choice and pro-life organizations are probably formulating reasons right now as to why this case is proof that the other side is wrong and dangerous. But the sad truth is that Gosnell's long-running practice probably has much more to do with poverty than with Roe v. Wade.

    America has death camps. This is the heinous reality liberal elites have been trying to conceal. A Philadelphia abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, was arrested Wednesday along with his wife and eight other suspects. The 69-year-old abortionist is charged with causing the death of a woman during a botched abortion and also killing seven babies. Prosecutors say the infants were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were murdered by having their spinal cords ripped apart with scissors. Dr. Gosnell's abortion clinic is a house of horrors - akin to those in Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia. Police authorities say...

And while we know PREVENTION is a moderate, common-sense approach to issues like unintended pregnancy and sexuality education, anti-choice members continue to introduce outrageous legislation that would give a fetus full constitutional rights (thus outlawing some forms of FDA-approved birth control) or impose medically inaccurate abstinence-only education on school children.

    As the National Institutes of Health fights in court for permission to resume long-term funding for research involving human embryonic stem cells, some members of Congress are coming to the agency’s defense with a proposal to make President Obama’s stem-cell funding policy the law of the land. Monday in Washington, D.C., Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Penn.) spoke in favor of the Stem Cell Research Advancement Act. This bill would make clear Congress' intent to allow federal funds to be used on the promising research, which is controversial because the cells themselves are derived from days-old human embryos, which are destroyed in...

    As health reform regulations begin to take shape, Planned Parenthood has begun a quiet campaign to ensure that birth control is counted among the free preventive services that health insurers must cover under the Affordable Care Act. Birth control barely came up in the health care reform debate, brushed aside by the more heated debate over abortion language and coverage. But with numerous religious groups opposed to contraceptive use, this issue is all but certain to become a flash point as implementation moves forward. “We see this as a tremendous opportunity to get no-cost birth control in the bill and...

    IBD's Capital Hill ^ | 4/1/2010 | David Hogberg
    A recent e-mail from House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer touted a New York Times story titled “Overhaul Will Lower the Costs of Being a Woman.” Seriously? Government policy does not reduce costs; it simply shifts them. It costs more to provide health insurance to women because of maternity care and because women tend to use a lot more preventive services. A law that prevents insurance companies from factoring those costs in to their premiums — called “gender rating” — does not reduce those costs. Insurers still have to find ways to pay for them, and they will most likely do...

    This movement was begun by Personhood USA. Its strategy is to introduce “Personhood” initiatives in every state in the Union. It is currently active in 32 states including my home state of Montana. This movement strikes fear into the hearts of pro-abortionists because they understand, perhaps better than some pro-life groups and individuals who are reticent in their support of it, the ramifications a “Personhood” amendment would have upon the legality of abortion if it became a part of the state’s constitution.

    The House's proposed health national health plan would establish "school-based health clinics" on campuses, and one group is warning it could give Planned Parenthood direct access to American schoolchildren at taxpayer expense. The American Family Association, or AFA, is warning that Section 399Z-1 of H.R. 3200, or the House plan, titled "School-Based Health Clinics," allows a "non-profit health agency" to serve as a "sponsoring facility" for health clinics that operate during school hours. AFA has provided a document with actual language from H.R. 3200 that outlines requirements for the program. AFA notes that under this provision Planned Parenthood would be...

Orszag, the White House budget director, asked whether he was prepared to say that “no taxpayer money will go to pay for abortions,” answered: “I am not prepared to say explicitly that right now. It’s obviously a controversial issue, and it’s one of the questions that is playing out in this debate.” Senator Judd Gregg, Republican of New Hampshire, who along with Mr. Orszag was asked about the issue on “Fox...

    Dr. LeRoy Carhart, one of the nation's few providers of late-term abortions, called on the federal government to treat as hate crimes all activities by "anti-choice domestic terrorists," compared the slain Dr. George Tiller to Martin Luther King and said planting crosses was equivalent to actions by the Ku Klux Klan. "This is the equivalent of Martin Luther King being assassinated," Dr. Carhart said of the May 31 slaying of one of America's best-known late-term abortion providers. "This is the equivalent of Pearl Harbor, the sinking of the Lusitania and any other major historic event where we've tolerated the intolerable...
