The sad thing is that this gaffe will be missed by a fair number of people: the sex selection abortion deniers. The U.S. and Canada both have trouble with sex selection abortions done for the polyglot of egoists and people from other cultures who wish to exert misguided control of their reproductive output. Adaptation to the West is not immediate for those who come from places with no retirement plans whatsoever, and whose women have little to no earning capacity, or are given over to the inlaws family in marriage. Their unborn baby girls are selected against, as are those of people who simply prefer boys over girls.
On the 39th anniversary of the infamous Roe V Wade decision, Obama delivered a celebratory statement saying that Jan 23 is the chance to recognize the “fundamental constitutional right” to abortion and to “continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”
Obama’s dreams for his daughters, (and the guys who use them,) to enjoy the availability of unfettered recreational abortion, comes at the cost of 50 plus MILLION american lives lost from surgical abortions alone.
The good senator is already an enemy of the TSA, and perhaps they were trying to show him who is boss by making him miss his flight to Washington DC. Senator Rand Paul scheduled to speak at the big Right to Life Event in Washington DC, and vote in the Senate today, but his schedule was interrupted by the gropers in Nashville.
A scanner indicated a glitch at his knee, and Paul lifted his trouser leg to expose the area. But that was NOT enough. The TSA officials wanted to grope the rest of his parts too. Rand Paul declined and was detained for some time. After a subsequent scan revealed no problems, the Senator caught a later flight to his destination.
This earned the Transportation Security Agency more bad commercials from Rand Paul’s father who is running for president.
Rand Paul himself has always opposed the over reach of the TSA, calling them clueless for targeting six year old kids, the disabled and others who are obviously not terrorists.
Due to a Moratorium on deportations to Haiti, burglar Kesler Dufrene was not deported the last time ICE took custody of him, although an immigration judge had ordered it. He has since been linked to Jan 2, 2011 slayings of a 15 year old girl and two other people by DNA and cellphone tracking. Dufrene committed suicide just before he was taken by Manatee county deputies after another break in and shooting. Authorities and relatives of the victims wonder if others were involved in the triple slaying, and most agree that that Ashley Chow, Harlen Peralta, and Israel Rincon would still be alive had Dufrene been deported as scheduled.
If deportations are halted, ICE cannot hold illegal immigrants in custody longer than six months, due to a pair of Supreme Court rulings on the issue. Obama had halted deportations to Haiti after the January 2010 earthquake. The result of that decision could be the topic of anti-Obama ads, after the style of the Willie Horton ads that plagued candidate Michael Dukakis so long ago.
Kathleen Sebelius has more wrong with her than pro-abortion extremism. (She’s the one who has protected Planned Parenthood in Kansas from the legal consequences of failing to report sexual abuse of minors.)
Obama directed Sebelius, who headed a trial lawyers association for 8 years, to move forward on health care tort reform. As anyone would expect, her progress is zero, because she can’t stop feeding her own.
Linked above is the tale of a 65 million dollar court decision against an exercise equipment company. The award goes to a physical therapist who was paralyzed when a Cybex leg EXTENSION machine fell on her. She had been using the machine incorrectly, standing beside it and pulling it backwards to STRETCH. So far, the company has been appealing and the last decision cut the award to 44 million.
With court decisions like this….. bookshelf makers should also stop production. Those things can be pulled down on top of people also.
Forbes contributor, Matt Kibbe estimates that tort litigation costs each American individual $838 per year, and suggests that such legal maneuvering makes up 27% of health care costs. That might be worth Kathleen Sebelius’s attention.
“In effect, the president is saying we have a year to figure out how to violate our consciences,” said Archbishop Timothy Dolan.
From the statement above, you think the U.S. Catholic Bishops have a plan for dealing with their most favored President Obama?
There’s a debate over at JillStanek.com to see if people think the Bishops will stand up to Obama, or will they begin covering the pill, or will the religiously affiliated institutions pay the Dhimmi tax in order to be allowed not to cover the birth control pill.
The Dhimmi tax is the amount of money that religiously run hospitals would have to pay for each employee, in order to stop health care coverage for them. This tax will start out at two thousand dollars per individual, and increase from there.
In many Muslim governed countries, people of other religions have to pay additional taxes in order to be permitted to live in the country and practice their own religion. This is a perfectly good word to apply to the new relationship of pro-life religions to the dominant statist religion, which is coercing religiously run institutions to contribute to the state program of reproductive control.
I am wondering what will happen when the Muslim physicians, pharmacists and nurses decide that they have a problem with the coercive policies of the Obama administration, as have the Muslim health caregivers in Europe.
The reason that Europe is allowing some religious dissent to the abortion culture, is not because of the Christians. They already gave in. It’s mostly the Muslims who rolled the abortion coercion back a bit, by refusing to cooperate. The governments have sufficient fear of the Muslims that they’re afraid to deny them the freedom to not abort.
Sorry to say, there is a significant social drawback to turning the other cheek.
So far, it appears that the Bishops will eventually do what they did in Canada… let the government have its way, with minimal resistance. Pharmer would like for this prediction to be wrong.
The teeny little kid, Melinda Star Guido, born at 270 grams, (9.5 oz), has left the LA County-USC Medical Center in Los Angeles, after a five month stay. The daughter of Haydee Ibarra is the third smallest (birth wt.) baby ever to be discharged out of the front door of a hospital. Best wishes & prayers for Melinda and her parents.
The Romney-care system in Massachusetts almost accomplished forced abortion and sterilization procedures in a mentally ill female, but the initial court order has been thrown out by a higher appeals court .
The Norfolk Family and Probate Court Judge Christina Harms had ordered that these procedures could be forced upon a woman with psychotic disorders, through the use of deception and sedation.
Somehow this woman had access to legal recourse, bringing her case to an appeals court. One wonders how many forced abortions and sterilizations have been accomplished under the Romneycare system.
Obama care mandates include forcing the coverage of birth control without a copay. This will include religiously affiliated employers, which will have to comply within a year, or drop their health care plans altogether. This seems to have gotten the attention of the US. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which had previously supported obamacare against the better judgment of the pro-lifers. Of course they “had to pass the bill before they could know what’s in it,” as Nancy Pelosi has told us.
This means by summer of 2013, you might be looking for new health care coverage if you are employed at a religiously run hospital or health care provider. What is more likely is that these entities will begin coverage of birth control….. same as in Canada and other socialized medicine countries.
This Obamacare mandate reveals the high interest of leftists in sex with kiddies, the main set of people who couldn’t afford those generic BC pills.
Half of unplanned pregnancies are in people who were on some kind of BC.
Dependence on birth control feeds the abortion industry, says the data from long term birth control researchers such as Anna Glasier. None of the birth control modalities are nearly as reliable in real world situations as the theoretical claims put forth by the industry.
Obama is taking care of his own.
Silver lining??? It preferentially reduces the reproduction rate of lefties.
