Celebs compete to glamorize abortion

From Brent Bozell at Townhall:

The website Deadline reports that there are not one but two movie projects attempting to glorify an underground abortion collective in Chicago that operated in the four years before the 1973 Roe v. Wade court decision legalizing abortion.

They won’t consider real-life exposes by The Center for Medical Progress. One report after another uncovers horrors. It recently displayed a hidden-camera video from National Abortion Federation conventions in 2014 and 2015. One abortion doctor wisecracked, “The fetus is a tough little object, and taking it — I mean, taking it apart on day one is very difficult.” Another said: “Our stories don’t really have a place in a lot of pro-choice discourse and rhetoric, right? The heads that get stuck that we can’t get out … the hemorrhages that we manage.

Instead, Jacklynn Blanchard of the Ms. Magazine blog publicized these movies as an opportunity to make abortion uplifting. More.

Reality check: For many progressives, it is uplifting. The power to destroy young lives unhindered promises that they will be permitted to do whatever they want to anyone else they want if they can find the rationale within their system. Knowing that few will protest and those few are easily dealt with. And they actually do not have much else to live for.

Do late term abortions happen in Canada?

That means there are at least 2,000 late-term abortions every year.

Not counting Quebec: There are 94 facilities providing abortions in Canada since 2012 and nearly half (49%) are in Quebec. (From RightNow)

Reality check: Late term abortion inures the public to involuntary euthanasia. It is Cool to kill someone if they are not wanted or needed.

China: Child born from 3rd trimester abortion was sold

From Sophie Williams at Daily Mail:

Woman, 18, aborts her baby at 35 WEEKS… and then is horrified to discover the midwife has saved the boy and sold him to her cousin

18-year-old Lili had an abortion after finding out she was pregnant

She was told that the procedure had been successful and paid the fees

Some three days later she was shocked to find the child had survived

A nurse had given it oxygen and sold the baby to her cousin

This is so cool, so feminist, it should have happened in Canada. It is legal here except the money part. More.

Reality check: A viable unborn child has fewer rights and fewer defenders than a shelter animal. Can you imagine the glitterati at Humane Society fundraisers sparing a thought for such a child?

A pro-life activist celebrates her hate mail

From Alissa Golub at Right Now:

Reality check: Golub seems so different from the old lady right-to-lifers who, starting in the 1970s, brought about the worst situation in the Western world in Canada by their zeal, fury, factionalism, and absolute misunderstanding of the situation.

Big, elite, progressive governments do not need people who are good citizens the way they used to, and it is a good question whether the people can afford these types of governments.

Let’s hope more young people start realizing and talking about that.

Oregon mandates no-cost abortions for all, and taxpayers will foot the bill

Many so-called conservatives gave their support to Paul Ryan’s version of the fake-repeal of Obamacare because it contained a provision to defund Planned Parenthood. Assuming Mitch McConnell’s version of fake-repeal also defunds Planned Parenthood—not a given—the baby butchers will lose their taxpayer funding; but only for one year.

No hiding abortion numbers: Ontario ruling forces gov’t to allow access to statistics

Why I would vote for post natal abortion.

OTTAWA, June 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An Ontario judge has tossed out a provincial Liberal law that banned access to abortion statistics on the grounds it violated the Charter.

“This is a huge victory for freedom of expression,” said André Schutten of the Association of Reformed Political Action (ARPA) Canada, which brought the court challenge to the law along with pro-life activist Patricia Maloney.

Why liberals care about climate change, but not abortion

June 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — As a rule, I don’t write about issues I feel ill-equipped to analyze. For years, one of those issues has been climate change, a hot topic for both progressives — who wish to utilize taxes (and what else?) to solve this problem — and conservatives, who are at the very least suspicious of the solutions being put forward. Since Donald Trump decided to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement to great lamentation and swooning on the progressive side, Twitter has lit up with panicked progressives asking a very reasonable question: Why are conservatives so suspicious of climate change?

Filmmaker avoids abortion when celebrating Planned Parenthood

Why? Isn’t abortion hot? From Leah Libresco Sargeant at First Things:

Joss Whedon tells stories about heroes, whether they’re California teenagers slaying vampires, a misfit band of smugglers saving the galaxy, or a group of superheroes repelling an alien invasion. No wonder Planned Parenthood was eager to sign him up for a short film lauding their services. But Whedon’s “Unlocked” tells a more complicated story about sex and abortion than he and Planned Parenthood must have intended.

Refusing to show abortion as one of the services Planned Parenthood provides seems oddly prim for a video ostensibly celebrating the clinics’ work. Perhaps Whedon couldn’t figure out how to shoot the procedure in an upbeat way. Or maybe, when he tried, he noticed that this choice compelled him to make further storytelling choices, which complicated his narrative. More.

Reality check: Abortion has been Planned Parenthood’s centrepiece for some time. That, and selling the children’s cadavers. One can estimate the moral status of a politician or celeb by their willingness to defend the organization.

Assistant principal on leave after ranting at two teen abortion protesters

An assistant principal at the prestigious Downingtown STEM Academy has been placed on paid leave after being video-recorded cursing at two teenage anti-abortion protesters on school property, telling them that aborted fetuses were “cells,” that he was gay and didn’t “give a [expletive] about Jesus,” and then loudly singing “I Love a Parade,” apparently to drown out the pair.

Liberal Minister “fascinated by Sharia” urges public to help quash pro-life bus ads

It’s been awhile since Liberal Minister Maryam Monsef said anything stupid. Monsef is the 30 year old millennial who never had a real job before getting elected then appointed to cabinet based on her gender, not ability or experience.

Well, this week we learned Monsef wants you to complain about pro-life bus advertisements in her hometown of Peterborough, Ontario.
