  1. I stumbled upon this family on social media. They have 9 (soon 10) children, they blog and (of course!!!), they sing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWzycOUrIYo. Their blog is full of crazy: http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com A few favourites: http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com/blog/ten-most-common-gun-control-soundbites-refuted (Let's shoot each other!) http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com/article/ten-commandments-training-children (Let's hit our kids!) http://www.johnstonfamilyministry.com/blog/check-out-our-new-t-shirt-designs (Let's hang people who are pro-choice! ... or something ...) Have any of you ever heard of the Johnston Family?
  2. Another Republican says what they're thinking https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2017/02/14/oklahoma-bill-would-require-father-of-fetus-to-approve-abortion Hey, Humphrey, fuck you! What's next you piece of shit? Women having to get permission to leave the house? To drive?
  3. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/oklahoma-lawmaker-wants-men-to-approve-abortion-calls-women-hosts_us_58a1eaf5e4b094a129ed7fac . We get it, you just want to control women only, cause you know we can't make decisions for our self
  4. Why does my state have to be filled with so many politicians who are total assholes: http://www.nwitimes.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/lawmaker-to-propose-total-abortion-ban-in-indiana/article_bf971c44-ddda-5af3-b5b3-0aa633c8a705.html That asshole even wants to ban abortion in cases of rape and when the mother's life is in danger, and he wants to prosecute women if they have an abortion to save their own lives. I'm so angry I can't even see straight right now. This fucker thinks he gets to force women to die for his beliefs and if we're not willing to die like good little incubators then we get sent to jail. FUCK YOU Curt Nisly. It's only been a week since the election and the right-wingers are already emboldened to ramp up their war on women. FUCK YOU, Curt Nisly.
  5. http://www.lifenews.com/2016/04/26/watch-satanists-mock-killing-of-unborn-children-in-bizarre-and-grotesque-protest/?utm_source=fark&utm_medium=website&utm_content=link
  6. Wasn't sure where to put this.... http://nbc4i.com/2016/12/06/ohio-senate-passes-heartbeat-bill/ Ohio lawmakers have attached an anti-abortion law onto a child abuse law that is making its rounds. It basically prevents an abortion in Ohio if there is a fetal heartbeat (can be as early as 6 weeks, which can sometimes be before a woman even knows she is pregnant). The keys here are that RAPE AND INCEST-induced pregnancies are also BANNED. The only exception is if the mother's life is actually in danger. Let me also draw your attention to this article ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/kris-jordan-domestic-violence_us_584820ece4b0b9feb0da6031?section=women& ), in which the man who is pushing this bill forward was investigated for domestic violence against his wife, and proceeded to tell the officers that:
  7. After months of fierce opposition from abortion rights advocates and the medical community, Texas will require fetal remains to be cremated or buried instead of disposed in sanitary landfills. On Monday, health officials finalized the new rules prohibiting hospitals, abortion clinics and other health care facilities from disposing of fetal remains — regardless of the period of gestation. The rules will take effect Dec. 19, according to state health officials, the Texas Tribune reported. Following criticism from medical providers, the state’s Health and Human Services Commission clarified that the requirement does not apply to miscarriages or abortions that take place at home. It also does not require birth or death certificates to be filed, to maintain confidentiality.https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/morning-mix/wp/2016/11/29/despite-months-of-outcry-texas-will-require-aborted-fetustes-to-be-cremated-or-buried/ So what happens at 5 weeks? What happens to a grieving mother who miscarry?
  8. If you've spent any amount of time on fundie media or in reproductive rights circles, then you know about crisis pregnancy centers, these religiously motivated establishments that pretend to be abortion clinics so they can convince women to not have abortions. CPCs are controversial, not just because they are operating under false pretenses, but also because in many states they receive taxpayer money. As it turns out, CPCs aren't even sucessful at convincing women not to have abortions: https://rewire.news/article/2016/05/10/crisis-pregnancy-centers-pretty-bad-dissuading-people-seeking-abortion/ It seems to me that if the goal of CPCs is to actually reduce abortions, then they are doing a terrible job of it. I think many women see through the rhetoric of CPCs and word of mouth online and in real life helps prevent those who are absolutely certain that they want abortions to avoid such places. The article mentions one problem with CPCs is that they tend to be staffed by middle class religiously conservative white women who have difficulty relating to women of different races who have had different experiences from themselves. In other words, CPC volunteers are so blinkered by their self-righteousness, it interferes with their stated goals. If I was anti-abortion, I would take this article to mean that my money, not to mention taxpayer money, is wasted supporting CPCs, but I doubt may will see it that way, and will instead claim that it is difficult for CPCs to compete with "Big Abortion," even though many CPCs already receive a lot of state funding. I'd also like to point you towards this article about how some CPCs promise pregnant women help with childcare and related expenditures, and then refuse to provide any aid when the baby comes: https://psmag.com/hollow-promises-lifetime-choices-the-appalling-duplicity-of-pro-life-crisis-pregnancy-centers-23d613c5ceb3#.f0jk7mcsl
  9. So this post keeps popping up everywhere. Mom is an attention seeker. The doctor was telling you your options and about down syndrome. It's not a walk in the park. Florida mom Courtney Baker expected no bumps on the road when she learned a third child was on her way. "My first two pregnancies were so easy. I was expecting this one to be easy too," she told CNN. But a couple weeks later, her baby was prenatally diagnosed with Down syndrome. The doctor suggested an abortion. He told her how tough life would be tending to a child with the condition. He made her feel unsupported. Their daughter Emersyn is now 15 months old and the light of her life. And Baker felt she couldn't hold in her feelings about that day any longer. So she sat down and wrote the doctor a letter. The letter "I'm not angry. I'm not bitter. I'm really just sad," Baker wrote in the letter, which sheposted on her Facebook page. "Instead of support and encouragement, you suggested we abort our child. I told you her name and you asked us again if we understood how low our quality of life would be with a child with Down syndrome." http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/08/health/moms-letter-doctor-down-syndrome-trnd/
  10. There will be no exceptions for rape or incest: http://www.vox.com/2016/4/26/11510874/oklahoma-abortion-outlaw-felony-doctors
  11. Evangelical minister Rob Schenck questions whether it's possible to be pro-life and pro-gun and opens up a whole can of worms in the process. http://www.armoroflightfilm.com/
  12. Indiana's governor just signed a very restrictive anti abortion bill. http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/03/25/indianas-chilling-new-anti-abortion-law-one-nations-worst it even requires miscarriages and abortions be either cremated or buried using a funeral director. It bans aborting severely disabled fetuses and goes on from there
  13. The Missouri state House of Representatives just passed a "Personhood" amendment that would give fertilized eggs legal rights. Since there are only eight Democrats in the Senate outof thirty-four, it will almost pass: http://www.kansascity.com/news/politics-government/article75948507.html Hopefully, it won't be voted into law by a popular vote, but things are going so far to the right these days I wouldn't be surprised if it passes.
  14. Once again Mr. Pavone is spouting off... rightwingwatch.org/content/anti-choice-leader-floats-possibility-punishing-abortion-accomplices-women-who-are-not-coerc God he makes me fucking sick. He really does. Clowns like him really don't care about human life once it has exited the female body unless there is political benefit for him and his GOP pals. Clergy (priests, bishops, etc) like him are a large part of the reason I left the church in 2012. He makes all the decent and kind men in the clergy look so bad by his actions.
  15. Please excuse me while I scream, make lots of ragefaces, and head-desk. http://filmingcops.com/new-bill-doctors-will-be-imprisoned-for-up-to-three-years-if-they-perform-an-abortion/ >>Rep. David Brumbaugh, R-Broken Arrow, the bill’s co-sponsor, said on the House floor before the vote that the bill was “not about policy. It’s not about politics. It’s about principle.” To critics who suggested that the bill is unconstitutional, Brumbaugh replied: “Do we make laws because they’re moral and right, or do we make them based on what an unelected judicial occupant might question or want to overturn? The last time I looked, that’s why I thought we had a separation of power,” according to The Washington Post.<< Also: >>The Oklahoma State Medical Association took no stand on the issue of abortion, but said in a statement: “We will oppose legislation that is designed to intimidate physicians or override their medical judgment.”<< https://rewire.news/legislative-tracker/law/oklahoma-bill-suspending-licenses-abortion-providers-sb-1552/ ARGGGGHHHHH!
  16. Just spotted this on RawStory; not sure if it's been posted already; it's dated 9 April 2016 IIRC. http://www.rawstory.com/2016/04/anti-gay-pastor-goes-on-arm-flailing-us-flag-rant-i-refuse-to-pledge-allegiance-to-sodomy-and-abortion/
  17. So it would seem there is some nut who is an "active Shooter" at the planned parenthood in Colorado Springs. Seems to be a rather fluid situation but takes it back to the original topic of how INSANE people who claim to be Pro-Life can be. If this is a case of yet another Nut Job who feels that he is saving the fertilized eggs I would love to understand the logic behind killing actual people to further his Pro-Life agenda. Why? Someone please explain to me how the heck you can be both Pro-Life and Pro-Death Penalty at the same time?? How liberating it must be to live a life completely devoid of logic. Planned Parenthood IS not just a "Baby Killing Factory" Why oh why must people refuse to educate themselves prior to taking a stand on something that they clearly do not understand... What the actually do: Abortion is a measly 3% of what they do there. 16% of what they do is Cancer Screening and prevention. 35% is CONTRACEPTION, you know that thing that you can do to the heathens that will stop them from needing an Abortion in the first place. I don't care what religion you belong to, there are so VERY few women who just leave the number of children that they have up to God's will. If that were the case you would see families with WAY more than 5 or 6 kids. Fertility issues my ass, more like you went for it and now that you are knee deep in diapers you suddenly are rethinking your whole "his will" stance. Don't get me wrong, I am with you, I am a big fan of controlling the number of mini me's I plan on setting on the world. Just drop the crap and let people be!! Leave families to decide what their family should look like and go home and make the family that you have always wanted, No kids, 12 cats whatever your deal is, it's all good. If your God is so Big and Scary with SEVERE wrath then leave it to him to deal with the sinners, I mean an eternity of suffering in Hell seems worse than anything that your micro brain can dream up. NOTE: Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, please forgive my Noobishness and move or delete or take away my weekly jellybean.
  18. I heard this blurb about a local woman on NPR this morning. Birth parents want their 17wks pregnant surrogate to abort 1 fetus after learning the 2 eggs implanted have become triplets. Apparently, this isn't the first case of birth parents wanting their surrogate to selectively terminate. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3359941/Surrogate-mom-carrying-triplets-refuses-demands-birth-parents-abort-one-fetuses.html I find this case troubling because it seems to me these surrogates have given up some agency in these contracts. What gives the birth parents the right to make these type of demands?
  19. NARAL apparently didn't care too much about the Doritos ultrasound ad; adweek.com/news/advertising-branding/how-doritos-super-bowl-ad-kicked-twitter-conversation-about-birth-control-169493 Here's the Tweet that NARAL had made; And here's the ad on YouTube; I think NARAL sort of stepped in it though and the only thing they really did with this tweet was give ammo to the anti-choice freaks. (Of course NARAL could tweet that they thought the weather was nice today and the anti-choice freaks would twist that around for their own sick purposes).
  20. The 42nd annual March for life is soon. I'm wondering if our favorite fundies are going. Maybe Josh will come out of hiding to attend with Anna. Will a Maxwell be there? Bates? Rodriguez? The adoptive fundie families who shouldn't be adopting. Or maybe that crazy ass doctor husband with his crazy family.
  21. A group of preschoolers was supposed to go on a field trip to the botanic gardens near Des Moines. Instead, they were ushered into a pro-life rally and campaign event for Carly Fiorina taking place at the same venue. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jan/21/carly-fiorina-accused-of-ambushing-children-for-anti-abortion-rally The parents never gave the school permission for their children to attend the event, and they are livid. When asked for comment, a Fiorina staffer said, "We were happy that these children chose to come to Carly’s event with their adult supervisor." They are PRE-SCHOOLERS. They didn't have a choice! And where was the "adult supervisor" in all of this? If I was a parent of a child involved, I would pull my child out of the preschool and be calling for the supervisor to get fired.
  22. We know that the Duggars are pretty involved in pro life campaigns. But what is pissing me off so much about this is that it is actually patriarchy and everything that belongs to it that is causing abortions. 200 years ago when our ancestors were living in the society the Quiverful folks deem perfect there were women that killed their babies after birth because they were unmarried. And some of these unwed mothers were raped, some of them had a sexual partner who promised them that he will marry them even though he never did, some were just so horny that they lost control. The less extreme patriarchal society is in my oppinion also a society where less women can fit a baby into the lives they want to live because they for example have a harder time to be a mom and to work at the same time. So more women decide against the baby they are pregnant with. The Duggars and their likes are living in their own little world where everything that is wrong (to them) can be easily solved by speaking out against it or by simply forbiding it when in fact the causes of a lot of social phenomenas are far more complex.
  23. I'm curious. The Duggars (and other extremist fundies) are loud talkers on their political stance regarding abortion and gay rights but do they have much knowledge on legislation beyond these two hot button topics? I'm thinking about budgetary concerns, involvement in the middle east, our active conflicts, etc, etc. I know that they are Republican and lean far to the right, but have they talked about anything else? It just seems that being of limited education and minimal communication skills that they stick to these two issues and nothing else. I could be missing it. Has anyone heard of their larger scope of political beliefs?
  24. While they were laying carpet, Jedidiah was wearing this shirt: prolifeworld.com/i-survived-roe-vs-wade-roe-vs-wade-will-not-survive-me-heather-black-shirt I SURVIVED ROE VS. WADE ROE VS. WADE WILL NOT SURVIVE ME Stand True There's a picture of a bunch of Duggar's wearing the shirt by their front door, and another one that says "I am the generation that abolished abortion." And a picture of just Johannah in the shirt. In the same scene, John-David is wearing a Georgetown Cupcake shirt. Congrats TLC, you've managed to include a free product placement for a product that the Duggars endorse. Maybe you should show up to film with a stack of Little People, Big World and Long Island Medium shirts next time.
  25. With their extreme views on abortion, what do you think would happen if one of the Duggar girls ended up with a life-threatening tubal/ectopic pregnancy, or some other life threatening (to the mother) condition where she could die unless the baby was aborted? Do you think they would simply pray that it'll resolve itself at the risk of their daughter's life? Even if the dr recommends abortion?
