Waaaaahhh: Adult Baby Wants Apology From Tom Coburn

Stanley Thorton Jr., who gained publicity for himself and his website when Sen. Tom Coburn used him as an example of social security waste, now wants an apology.

Still hungry for publicity, Thornton notified the Washington Times that he had been cleared of fraud by the Social Security Administration, and expects an apology from the Senator.

Thornton has had to move out of the apartment shared with Diaz, now deceased, as he lacked the funds on his own to keep up with the rent. Perhaps a bit more recognition would allow him to sell ads for baby products on his website, and get him off of SSI.

Newsbusters: Media Has Lost Clout

Piers Morgan Tells Huntsman ‘I’ve Never Seen Any Candidate Who Has Got Better Press’ Poll So Low | NewsBusters.org.

Slip of the tongue from Piers Morgan, who commented on the ineffectual state of the old mainstream media: “I’ve never seen any candidate who has got better press or had more people say he’s a great guy, he’d be perfect, who was polling so low”

He admitted that the media has a love affair with Jon Huntsman, Republican presidential candidate, who is still polling in the tank.  There seems to be nothing the press can do to bolster this guy’s appeal.

Conservatives aren’t paying attention to the lamestream media anymore.

Oklahoma Mom Refuses Chemo In Order to Save Her Baby

This is the unfettered human maternal instinct, to put the lives of one’s children first. It’s so rare now, as to be newsworthy, and many would criticize it.
Stacie Crimm refused chemo for an aggressive tumor for fear that it would harm her baby. Her child was delivered prematurely. Stacie had only one chance to hold her baby girl prior to her own death. Prayers for her and her family.

Treatment for Infertility, Cash Only In Ottawa?

MercatorNet: Are babies prizes or gifts?.

Margaret Somerville  commented on a contest at an Ottawa, Canada radio station, HOT 89.9.   They offered as a prize, up to three fertility treatments.   Numerous couples submitted short statements explaining why they should be most eligible for such assistance.  In the end, the field was narrowed to five contestants, and all of them “won” the treatments.

People of various views on the life issues are troubled by the contest.

Pharmer, as usual,  gets down to the nitty gritty:

The main problem is not the contest itself, but the fertility treatments, which (depending on the type) frequently  have in their design the idea that babies are objects.   You see…… there is selective reduction.  The parents are convinced (by the docs)  to knock off some of the babies if there  are multiples, to increase the survivability of the remaining one or two.

The type of fertility treatments is not specified, so it could include some procedures which inherently involve killing human embryos.

What most people are saying “yuck” to  is not the killing that so often  accompanies the fertility treatments,  but the exhibitionism.   These five couples may be putting that killing  on display, since they agreed to shed the privacy which usually surrounds the treatments.

Note that the socialized medicine system of Ottawa  is apparently not covering the treatment of the disease of infertility.  That apparently  has to be won in a contest.

Abortion Supporters Fear Legal Recognition of Biological Fact

Mississippi Abortion Amendment 26 Says Life Begins at Fertilization | Video | TheBlaze.com.

It’s in your developmental biology book, and your general biology text.   Life for an organism of sexually reproducing species begins when fertilization is complete.

Mississippi proposes to recognize this fact in law, amid objections from abortion supporters.

They complain that this amendment might affect the availability of many birth control pills.

This is an admission that birth control pills, which operate by multiple mechanisms, including interference with implantation, have been misbranded as contraceptives.

Maybe we can request a surgeon general warning on BC pill packs that says: WARNING: this pill may operate by stopping the life of an early human embryo.

The warning could be upgraded for Plan B, and especially for Ella, doses of which can be accumulated for use in home abortions.

It is feared that legal recognition of what developmental biologists have observed might hurt the pharmaceutical and abortion industry.   Maybe if they had been honest all along, such efforts as Mississippi amendment 26 would not have been necessary.
