  • Arizona Anti-Abortion Law Racist Says ACLU, NAACP

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 20 July 2014 | John Semmens
    The ACLU has filed suit alleging that an Arizona law that bars sex-selective and race-based abortions is racist. The suit was filed on behalf of the NAACP and the National Asian-Pacific American Women’s Forum. Alexa Kolbi-Molinas of the ACLU insisted that “this law has a racially disparate effect as its intent. African-Americans are nearly four times as likely to opt for abortion as the end point of a pregnancy compared to whites. Consequently, the Arizona law has a chilling impact on what should be a freely taken choice.” “The barrier to sex-selective abortions introduces a culturally insensitive affront to persons...

    Details on how Dr. Kermit Gosnell dispatched babies who survived late term abortions by “snipping their spinal cords” are as grisly as any contemporary “slasher film.” Unfortunately, the practice of disposing of such survivors by abortionists is not unusual. Dr. Cesare Santangelo of Washington, D.C. was caught in an undercover video reassuring a prospective abortion procurer that “even if the fetus comes out alive we would not help it.” At Dr. Emily Women’s Health Center in New York City abortion survivors are drowned in “jars of solutions.” National Abortion Federation President Vicki Saporta says “Gosnell’s main problem is his own...

    In the Great Sequestration Debate, here’s what we know: (a) The president has patrimony of an idea he now characterizes as a brutal and senseless assault on America. (b) The president and his then-chief of staff, Jack Lew, misled the public about their role in giving birth to the sequester idea. (c) House Republicans have twice passed legislation to avoid the sequester cuts with carefully targeted ones, but Senate Democrats refused to act. (d) Mr. Obama has brushed off a Republican plan to give him flexibility to allocate the $85 billion in spending cuts, which makes no sense if the...

Khamisa Sawadi, who is Syrian but was married to a Saudi, was convicted and sentenced last week for meeting with men who were not her immediate relatives. The two men, including one who was Sawadi's late husband's nephew, were also found guilty and sentenced to prison terms and lashes.

    A GANG of children have been caught trying to roast two puppies over an open fire. Shocked and huddled together for safety, the puppies were rescued from an act of almost unbelievable barbarity on a canal bank near Manchester in England. A gang of youths had seized the seven-week-old brother and sister puppies and were slowly roasting them over a bonfire. Yelping in panic and distress as their fur began to burn, the pair struggled desperately to escape the children's clutches. The commotion attracted a walker who ran over to the bonfire and ordered the gang to release them immediately.

    With the recent charges that a major National Football League player had allowed cruel dog fights on his home property, the issue of cruelty to animals has been brought to national attention. Nearly everyone acknowledges the obvious -- that a person who is cruel to animals, who enjoys sees seeing an animal suffer, is likely to inflict suffering on human beings. Cruelty to animals is one of the very few predictors among children of later criminal behavior. So, aside from altruistic concern for animals, we human beings also have a selfish concern about people who enjoy making animals suffer. People...

    If today’s Catholic bishops lived during the Nuremberg trials, they would have condemned the execution of nine of the defendants – including Ernst Kaltenbrunner and Hans Frank. Kaltenbrunner was responsible for mass executions of civilians and prisoners of war as Heinrich Himmler’s chief SS lieutenant; Frank oversaw the Nazis’ numerous atrocities as the governor of occupied Poland. Such a presumptuous proposition seems plausible given two Vatican officials’ opposition to Saddam Hussein’s death sentence – and the Catholic Church’s moral revisionism concerning capital punishment. Iraq’s High Tribunal convicted Saddam of committing crimes against humanity and sentenced him to death on Nov....
  • China's 'cruelty olympics' causes international outrage

    A bear struggles to retain its balance while gripping the two metal hoops, which look more like shackles than acrobatics equipment, as a wildlife park worker looks on and laughs. This is just the latest shocking picture to emerge from the Animal Olympic Games which is being held in China, a country with a shameful animal rights record. Chimpanzees are forced to play basketball and apparently lift huge weights, while a docile brown bear is dressed in a tutu while navigating a makeshift obstacle course in one of the strangest events ever to be staged. The photographs are published for...

    A MELBOURNE man has been jailed for three months for bashing his partner's dog. Ibrahim Moussa, 25, of Widford Street, Glenroy, was sentenced in the Broadmeadows Magistrates Court last week to a total of three years' jail over a range of offences including burglary, theft and breach of an intervention order. The three years included two three-month sentences for beating a dog and causing unnecessary pain to the animal, to be served concurrently. The animal cruelty charges relate to incidents in July and August last year involving Zarah, a pit bull-cross puppy that was four months old when the RSPCA...

    A group of elderly and disabled cigarette lovers say Washington's smoking ban has become extremely hazardous to their health. Investigative Reporter Chris Halsne found them dodging traffic in wheelchairs and walkers. Folks are starting to get used to seeing "no-smoking" signs at bars, restaurants and public buildings. But, what happens when a nursing home bans smoking without making any accommodations for residents? Crossing the street in front of the Bremerton Health and Rehabilitation Center is not for the faint of heart, but that's exactly where we found the faint of heart traveling. No matter their disability, if residents like...
  • Australia: Abattoirs Approved For Muslim Slaughtering

    News from Nine MSN, Australia's ABC Rural and Bernama reports that three abattoirs have been given the seal of approval by a Malaysian religious body to perform halal slaughter of beef, which can then be exported to Malaysia. The abattoirs are Stanbroke Beef Pty Ltd, based in Grantham, Queensland, and two from Victoria - Tasman Group Services, Brooklyn, and Victoria and Novic Food Processing, in Wodonga. On June 4 last year, Malaysia suspended its beef imports from Australia, as it was decided that normal humane methods of killing bovines did not conform to halal standards. Traditionally, halal meat has to...

    It took 10 police officers to keep order last month when Brigitte Gabriel gave a speech at Memphis University. A passionate and powerful speaker who had witnessed Palestinian terrorism and experienced anti-Jewish and anti-Christian propaganda in her native Lebanon, Ms. Gabriel had been invited to speak at the Tennessee campus by religious studies professor David Patterson. But the day before Ms. Gabriel's speech, Mr. Patterson began receiving threatening e-mails. “Do you honestly think the scheduled lecture will serve any useful purpose other than inflaming the Muslims, insulting them and spilling poison in the community?” one message said. Another said that...

    Members of Cuban exile groups gathered for a protest Saturday on Watson Island to flash signs and blare earsplitting trailer truck horns. They had unlikely targets: rows of cruise ships. They wanted passengers on Bahamas-bound cruise ships to know they say the island mistreats Cubans who land -- and are detained -- on the island chain.
