Politifact sounds unbiased and sooooo journalistic.
But its often notespecially when the fact-checkers are the same dishonest journalists who deliver daily deception in the form of fake news.
Politifact is non-partisan or so they say. Sure. And Hollywood is politically diverse. The self-anointed fact-check operation explains its mission is to sort out the truth in American politics. Theres obviously a typo in there. Im pretty sure they meant, filter out.
Politifact was created by the Tampa Bay Times which needs some serious fact-checking itself (see here).
In a recent Politifact fact-check, W. Gardner Selby plays a pathetic game of semantics to arrive at a false conclusion about abortions impact in the black community when he declared that State Representative (R-TX) Jason Isaac makes a Mostly False claim that abortion is the leading killer of black Americans.
Abortion is the number one killer of black lives, outnumbering the CDCs reported top 15 leading causes of deaths among blacks in 2014combined. The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute (created by Planned Parenthood) reported 926,200 abortions in 2014, 28% of which were among black women. Thats 259,336 deaths (711 per day) via induced abortions versus 246,122, respectively. (It was 996 abortions per day back in 2008, which Rep. Isaac may have been quoting as archived here.)
Abortion-induced deaths of the unborn in the black community are 69 times higher than HIV deaths, 31 times higher than (all other) homicides, 3.6 times higher than cancer-related deaths, and 3.5 times higher than deaths caused by heart disease.
Selby, preferring euphemisms over the literal meaning of words, explains: But its worth noting for starters that Isaacs characterization of abortions as killing babies is disputed.
Disputed by whom? Those who unscientifically say unborn children are just clumps of cells? Political activists like former Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, who said protesting an abortion is like protesting a mans colonoscopy?
Selby justifies such dispute by referring to pro-abortion activists who refer to unborn fetuses.That changes nothing. Fetus is simply Latin for offspring. The offspring of humans are humans. Embryology is unambiguous when it comes to this century-long known fact: human life begins at fertilization. Any act that intervenes and terminates that life prior to birth (such as miscarriage or induced abortion) causes the death of that human life.
We of today know that man is born of sexual union; that he starts life as an embryo within the body of the female; and that the embryo is formed from the fusion of two single cells, the ovum and the sperm. This all seems so simple and evident to us that it is difficult to picture a time when it was not part of the common knowledge. These were words published in 1933 by Guttmacher founder, OB/GYN and Planned Parenthood PresidentAlan F. Guttmacherin his book Life in the Making.
Today, the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute and its media allies ignore this irrefutable scientific fact.
Selby then protests: The CDC doesnt say abortions kill babies. Selbys attempt to defend abortion and willfully ignore what it actually is is mind-numbing. But thats the point of todays agenda-driven #fakenewsto numb the minds of the public to the violent atrocity of abortion.
Sure, in its annual Abortion Surveillance Reports, the CDC offers this clinical definition of abortion: For the purpose of surveillance, a legal induced abortion is defined as an intervention performed by a licensed clinician that is intended to terminate an ongoing pregnancy.
Yet, the Merriam-Webster dictionary, which has been around a lot longer than the CDC, defines abortion this way: the termination of a pregnancy after, accompanied by, resulting in, or closely followed by the death of the embryo or fetus such as the induced expulsion of a fetus.
The CDC provides such an antiseptic definition when it comes to ending the life of an unborn child via induced abortion. But when discussing prenatal care or pregnancy loss, baby magically adorns every discussion. The loss of a baby during pregnancy remains a sad reality for many families explains the CDC on its Pregnancy Loss page and describes a stillbirth as the death of a baby before or during delivery. Mothers are warned against smoking because it can separate the placenta from the womb too early, causing bleeding, which is dangerous to the mother and baby. There the CDC goes again conditionally acknowledging the humanity of something Selby likes to pretend is not alive.
Rush mentioned last week that over 900 black babies are aborted EVERY DAY in this country. It’s a slaughter.
“A legal induced abortion is defined as an intervention performed by a licensed clinician that is intended to terminate an ongoing pregnancy.
That definition is so air-brushed that it would apply to Caesarians and other methods that “terminate an ongoing pregnancy” to deliver living, wanted children. The true distinguishing characteristic of abortion is killing with intent.
“versus 246,122, respectively.” is probably a reference to the number of live births of black children.
That would line up with more than half being killed.
And roughly 3K babies of all descriptions being murdered every day in America alone.
There are many black women who will not murder their own children, just as there is some ercentage of other American women who’ll not consider this horror ... and may the Lord bless each and every one of them, to know Him and to be saved from out of this evil generation, and also to establish whole families for them.
As for those so-called “fathers” and “mothers” who do murder their children, hiring the medical lynch mob, and particularly those serial abortioners who have many murdered babies to answer for ... well, I’m not saying I’d be adverse to them repenting and escaping the doom that is coming, but if they stick to their guns or the Lord chooses to harden their hearts so that they are not allowed to repent ... well, the wages of sin are death.
Selby then protests: The CDC doesnt say abortions kill babies.
Well, sometimes abortions fail to kill babies. Then lefties like Obama want to leave those babies to die in a broom closet.
But otherwise, abortions kill babies.
Since about 3,300 TOTAL are killed daily (considering 6 working days a week @ 1,000,000 per year) in the good, ol' USofA, that leaves 2,400 WHITE and Hispanic ones dying; too!
If you go byn the premiss that one has to be BORN before one can be KILLED; then I guess this reasoning works for them.
Too bad that twisted logic does NOT work for bald eagles!!
