  1. It's that time again in which many of our favorite fundies, fundie organizations, and others headed to DC and other areas for March for Life events. Please feel free to search social media for snarky worthy pictures, posts, and also blog entries.
  2. Well, technically a Jew who converted to Christianity, but still. This guy could have been killed in Holocaust as a baby; probably has relatives who were killed. He is waiting for another Holocaust that will be worse than one we already had, and compares that to abortion: The Bible teaches that only a remnant of Jews will remain when the Messiah comes – for the first time, according to Orthodox Judaism; for the second time, according to orthodox Christianity. So, Jews who are presently preparing to go to Israel are oblivious that they are leaping into the heart of the flames. It reminds me of the abortion clinic. The womb used to be the safest place for a baby; today it is the most treacherous. There is coming a time when Jews, like the unborn baby, will be screaming again to escape the fire and the smoke: “Never Again?” The Bible says, yes, again, and much worse. https://onedaringjew.wordpress.com/2009/09/15/holocaust/ That article is rather old, but he has guest post from 2015 about "Auschwitz of New Jersey". (I have no idea, why ISIS is even mentioned there.) https://onedaringjew.wordpress.com/2015/03/04/isis-has-nothing-on-the-abortion-mills-of-america/ He has other amazingly terrible posts as well. This one, for example: https://onedaringjew.wordpress.com/2015/05/06/brit-lesbian-to-yankee-christian-ill-pray-for-you/ Or this one: https://onedaringjew.wordpress.com/2010/10/05/the-suffering-atheist-in-a-meaningless-universe/ Ok, folks, I'm falling down the rabbit hole. Send ferrets.
  3. Looks like Ireland will have a referendum next year to repeal the 8th amendment to our constitution, which was introduced in 1982 and gives equal value to the life of a fetus and it's mother. We have a new Taoiseach (prime minister) who I had great hopes for. He's openly gay and young but he appears to be firmly on the fence. https://mobile.nytimes.com/2017/09/09/opinion/sunday/leo-varadkar-ireland-dowd.html The committee to develop the wording meet today for the first time and the process is expected to take three months. Hopefully they will bear in mind the recommendations of the citizens assembly which took place earlier this year. Their recommendations were abortion available on request up to 12 weeks and up to 22 for sociology economic reasons. We, the women of Ireland (well most of us) feel like we are on the cusp of real change and our daughters will have real choice regarding pregnancy and childbirth. The annual march for choice takes place on Saturday the 30th of September. My friends and I will be out in force, little people in tow and the menfolk of course! FJers support us in any small way you can. Give a like or a share on FB if you see media coverage of the march, or if there's are solidarity events happening near you, tell your friends and family. Keep us in the global eye and make a holy show of our ridiculous laws. No better crowd to ask than you lot! https://www.abortionrightscampaign.ie/about-arc/
  4. 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?
  5. 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
  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. 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.
  9. I can't summarize this nearly as well as others have. "Today, November 7th, 2016, the day before the presidential election, Father Frank Pavone of Priests for Life took the corpse of an aborted child–one that was given by a pathologist for a proper burial–laid it upon the altar, and posted a picture of it to Facebook. The reason? To convince you to vote for Donald Trump." From http://www.patheos.com/blogs/themackerelsnapper/2016/11/07/frank-pavone-is-a-sick-man/ and "...Fr. Pavone makes no secret that he put that dead child up on the altar and filmed him and plastered a still on Facebook in order to lobby for a particular presidential candidate. Is that what the altar of sacrifice in a Catholic Church is for?" From http://www.patheos.com/blogs/scottericalt/after-sick-political-stunt-fr-pavones-faculties-should-be-suspended/ Horrifying. I don't have the words at the moment strong enough to express my thoughts on this.
  10. 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
  11. 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/
  12. The Armor of Light (documentary)

    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/
  13. There will be no exceptions for rape or incest: http://www.vox.com/2016/4/26/11510874/oklahoma-abortion-outlaw-felony-doctors
  14. 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.
  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. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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/
  19. 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
  20. "The Center for Medical Progress had covertly shot videos of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the provision of body parts from aborted fetuses for research. Mr. Daleiden, 26, had posed as a biotechnology representative to infiltrate Planned Parenthood affiliates and surreptitiously record his attempts to procure tissue for research." Daleiden has "been indicted on a felony charge of tampering with a governmental record and a misdemeanor count related to purchasing human organs." And, to top it all off, Planned Parenthood has been completely cleared of any wrongdoing. Karma is a wonderful thing. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/26/us/2-abortion-foes-behind-planned-parenthood-videos-are-indicted.html?smprod=nytcore-iphone&smid=nytcore-iphone-share
  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. March for life 2016

    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.
  23. 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?
  24. 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?
  25. 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.
