Purdue Associate Professor States that Aborted Baby Pics are Child Pornography

Dr. David Sanders, Associate Biology Professor at Purdue, and local W. Lafayette politician, demonstrates career capping logic, in a non-debate on the abortion issue. Hear his argument conflating a liver cell and a totipotent zygote cell. The other highlight of the debate is Sanders’ claim that aborted baby pics are “child pornography“. He seems to elicit a paranoia that the forces of theocracy are out to control everyone.  Yes, his migration away from science and towards democrat politics is timely, but he might want to ponder which theocratic groups tend to be more restrictive of personal freedoms.

Financial Analysis: Barronelle Stutzman, The Washington Florist.

The Daily Signal has 21 questions for the Washington Florist who is being sued for refusing to provide service for a same sex marriage.   You won’t see this view in the mainstream media, which is why she received mountains of hate mail.

This Lady exhibits a great deal of kindness and courage, along with her (enviable) natural social skills.

From one with fewer social skills comes some financial analysis:

Mrs. Stutzman is being sued as a business owner, as well as personally.  This means that ALL of her assets are up for grabs.

Who is footing the bill for this decision to punish a person for her religious beliefs, for an act which does no real harm, and does not even limit services to the affected couple? THE TAX PAYER!   The costs of these kinds of frivolous litigations are borne in large part by the public, since public facilities are used and tied up by the proceedings, and since the public safety net covers those made broke by paying the damages.  Most of it is mediated by government funded bureaucrats.

In addition, after all of the accumulated wealth of the Stutzman’s is transferred to lawyers, and to the gay couple, the couple will become eligible for all sorts of federal and state services, and of course, YOU, the taxpayer will be paying.

Basically YOUR money is being  transferred to a gay couple, lawyers, and a bloated legal system,  because ONE florist, among many,  could not do their wedding on account of her religious beliefs.  It is important to know that these legal proceedings were initiated by the State Attorney General, in an assault on cultural diversity.

Please think about this, and determine if you want it to continue.

Government Health Care Incompetence on Display (Again)

Washington State has been persecuting  Stormans, a family owned pharmacy business, whose employees oppose dispensing the morning after pill on the grounds that it can kill humans early in development.  The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a hearing of their case, leaving them with the option of complying with Washington’s coercive, totalitarian stance towards those who try to practice health care, or run a business in accordance with their consciences, or losing their livelihood.

Since 2011, when the research was published showing that Plan B doesn’t work for average sized American women (due to their size), more states have been trying to coerce the dispensing of this bogus drug. This underscores government incompetence in the field of health care. When Plan B does work, it can operate by post fertilization mechanisms – killing the early embryo, and killing is killing, ‘no matter how small’. Research shows that it doesn’t work to delay or stop ovulation during the women’s most fertile day of the cycle, (after the luteal peak). Yes, if you’re small enough for Plan B (levonorgestrel)  to work, it can be an embryo killer (abortive).

Silver lining: The supremes at least didn’t rule that pharmacists in all 50 states have to dispense Plan B, which could have happened with this nutty court.  The Stormans could close down and bring up a business elsewhere, if they haven’t already been drained of the financial means to do so, by the onerous, and unjust state.   Unfortunately the state of Illinois, as well as the  federal government are currently  attempting to legislate that pharmacists must practice incompetently with respect to the dispensing of birth control to patients.

Here’s a related commentary, as well as the research pinpointing why Plan B is such a huge fail in America.

These Plots Won’t be Called Workplace Violence

It’s too obvious that something else inspires them.   29 year old Omar Mateen  swore allegiance to ISIS, in a call to 911 before he massacred a large portion of the crowd inside an Orlando gay bar. Prior to this time he had been employed as a security guard at a juvenile detention center.  His first wife had accused him of domestic violence, and he had been described as a “known quantity” to the FBI.

Meanwhile another person transporting weapons and explosive substances has been detained in LA.  He claimed to have been headed to the  Gay Pride Festival in West Hollywood.  The name of the second person is being withheld, but it is claimed  that the two incidents are not related.

Updates are taking place on Drudge Report and Breitbart websites if immediate and less massaged news coverage is desired.  CBS has published that ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attack.  The Gateway Pundit had pointed out that there was chatter from ISIS three days ago, predicting attacks on civilians in Florida.

Prayers for the dead, the injured and those grieving the loss of life at this time.   It is hoped that we can formulate a rational response to this act of terrorism, that respects the human right of people to protect themselves from being killed.

Winnebago County, IL Health Dept Sued for firing Pro-life Nurse

Nurse Sandra Mendoza has been forced out of her 18 year  position as a pediatric nurse with the Winnebago County Health Dept in Rockford, Illinois.   This situation stemmed from the decision by Dr. Sandra Martell to have all of the nurses trained to refer for abortion and handle distribution of faulty birth control such as Plan B to unsuspecting patients who don’t know how ineffective it is, and that it can have an abortive mechanism if it ever works as planned.  Ms. Mendoza conscientiously refused to enable the killing of unborn humans, and subsequently found herself no longer employed by the health department.   She is bringing suit based upon the Illinois Health Care Right of Conscience Act which prohibits discrimination against health care workers who object to abortion and refuse to promote or participate in that act.

The contact form for the Winnebago County Health Department is linked HERE for your convenience, if you would like to politely address the way that Dr. Sandra Martell chooses to run her department.

This violation of Sandra Mendoza’s civil rights comes prior to the passage of Illinois Senate Bill 1564, which seeks to overturn certain protections of health care workers who have a conscience, and refuse to enable the  killing of  humans.  This bill has not yet been addressed by Governor Bruce Rauner, who can be contacted HERE.

Sen Cory Booker Puts Medical Incompetence on Display With Bill to Force Pharmacists to Dispense Birth Control

Senate Bill 2960 has been introduced to the 114th Congress by Sen Cory Booker, (D) New Jersey, to force pharmacists to dispense all drugs and devices approved by the FDA to “prevent pregnancy”.   Many of these drugs work by multiple mechanisms, and a section of the bill forbids  informing patients of the possible abortive mechanisms, labeling this as deceptive.  Another section of the bill invites patients to sue the pharmacist who does not give them birth control.   Clinical reasons for refusing to dispense are supposedly allowed, but pharmacists will need to be prepared to  pay lawyers, court costs,  fines, and argue these reasons out in a courtroom.  A desire to avoid dispensing drugs which can act by abortive mechanisms, is not considered a valid reason for refusing to dispense birth control.

The morning after pills are addressed in this bill as drugs which must be dispensed, although they are ineffective in half of American women, who are too big for the dose to work, and poorly effective in additional portions of the female population. If they do stop pregnancy, this is more likely to be accomplished by mechanisms which occur after fertilization than beforehand.

Interestingly,  Sen. Booker’s bill seems to allow  that if a pharmacy does not stock any birth control in the normal course of business, it is not required to distribute the drugs.  Conversely, if your pharmacy has some birth control pills, you would be expected to dispense these AND the fairly useless, morning after pills.

Lawsuits will abound if this bill passes, as its medical and regulatory basis is very poor, its constitutional basis is absent, and it leaves pharmacists liable to legal repercussions, even if they adhere to the letter of the law.  Displaying  medical and legal incompetence along with Cory Booker are Senators Baldwin, Blumenthal, Boxer, Brown, Feinstein, Franken, Gillibrand, Hirono, Kaine, Markey, Menendez, Merkley, Murray, Sanders, Shaheen, Warren, Whitehouse, and Wyden.

Pharmacists, check out S. 2960, and see if you think it’s time to leave retail pharmacy to the robots.

That didn’t take long…. China has suspended Apple’s music vid and iBooks. How about that!! Can you guess why? Leftists take heed. China has a strong central government which censors what its people sees. And it doesn’t like the social agenda of the West and what it’s pushing, 24/7. Apple is completely mum about this because we’d all be wondering why they hate the religious freedom states here so much, but put up with China completely suppressing their “rainbow” content. Many of our other multi-national companies are behaving the same way. Western Christians are so much easier to cow than the Chinese, Russians and the Muslims.

The LA Times reported on this event, but naturally had NO CLUE as to what would cause China to shut down most of Apples content service.

One more time, lefties.  This is what’s going to happen when you build that utopia of your dreams, with the government controlling everything.  There will be a decision that your habits bring about extreme financial burdens, and then………. POOF!

Lefties, Your Turn to Be Suppressed is Coming

So many people of all political stripes seem to forget about the value of freedom of speech and religion when it’s their turn on top, and they have a chance to crush their rivals. The Evangelical Atheists have been all about squashing public displays of Christianity for decades.

It’s time to remind them that their turn is coming.  Russia and the old USSR used to be an Atheist, Commie Paradise.  But times are changing.   It seems that Vladimir Putin has been finding his Orthodox roots.  It’s no longer cool to advertise abortion nor gayness in Russia.  Here’s  a story which you might take with a grain of salt, because it’s from that “news” dumpster called NBC.  A reporter, called Alexey Eremenko, claims that a Russian is facing possibly a year in prison for claiming, on social media, that there is no God.   Viktor Krasnov is said to be on trial in Stavropol, Russia, for “offending believer’s feelings”, after having undergone a month of mental health testing.  Perhaps Atheists are now considered crazy in Russia.

The enforcers of political correctness, who feel more powerful and alive when they’re  suppressing opposing ideas, should remember that times change, and the next ideas to be suppressed will be their own.

GoFundMe Kowtows to Leftist Extremists of “Gaystapo”

While the Shona Banda legal fundraiser remains up (as of 4-28-15) at GoFundMe,  the fundraisers for Sweet Cakes and Barronelle Stutzman have been removed.

Shona Banda’s house was raided by cops, after her son made comments in favor of medical marijuana at his school in Kansas.  Ms. Banda had moved to the state from Colorado where she had legal access to legal weed, said to be for a health condition.  The raid produced some cannabis oil and 2 oz of the weed itself.  Her son has been removed from the home, and felony charges are expected.

GoFundMe has given the excuse that the Sweet Cake’s fundraiser was suspended because they have been formally charged with a heinous crime [of not baking a cake for a same sex wedding].  This does not wash since the fundraiser was to benefit the mom and kids who were not present at the time of refusal.  It is obvious:  GoFundMe will raise legal defense for people found with illegal marijuana in the home, but not for the benefit of the family supported by the Sweet Cakes business, which is charged with not  baking a cake for a same sex wedding.

Businesses will have to decide whether it is in their interest to kowtow to the extremists  of the “Gaystapo”, or continue having wider access to commerce with the general population. Fundraisers and donors are encouraged to use a different venue until GoFundMe regains realistic business priorities.

Idaho City Forces Pastors to Officiate Same Sex Weddings or Go To Jail

You knew it would come to this, but it certainly has happened very quickly.  It no longer is a choice for Religious Ministers to participate in same sex weddings in the city of Couer d’Alene, Idaho.

A city ordinance demands the participation of local pastors, and those who refuse face jail and a daily fine of $1000 dollars.

The Alliance Defending Freedom is taking up the case of Pastors Donald and Evelyn Knapp, who declined on Friday to officiate a ceremony.   They now face a 180 day jail sentence  and $1000 dollars fine for each day they refuse to comply.
