The Other McCain explains it very well I would say. It is like I say, the Collectivist Left assumes that every right comes FROM government, and can be limited by government, and of course must be paid for BY government
Years ago, while reporting on federally funded research — the infamous “porn arousal” studies at Northwestern University — I developed what I like to think of as the Existential Theory of Liberalism: To a liberal, nothing exists unless it is mandated, subsidized and/or regulated by the federal government.
If you think it is a waste of taxpayer money to give a creepy psychology professor a federal grant to measure women’s sexual arousal to pornography, you will be condemned as “anti-sex.” If you want to reduce deficit spending by limiting tax money for the National Endowment of the Arts, you’re “anti-art.” Don’t agree with proposed EPA environmental regulations? You’re “anti-science.”
The reaction to today’s Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby case— where a business objected, as a matter of religious liberty, to ObamaCare’s mandated insurance coverage for contraceptives — is a case in point: Liberals want us to believe that, unless businesses are compelled by federal law to provide contraception to their employees, contraception will cease to exist.
Absolutely nailed it Mr. McCain!
Live Action just released a disturbing video today that exposes Planned Parenthood for teaching and condoning inappropriate sexual behavior for teens without parents’ knowledge, and even dismissing and covering for illegal sex acts involving minors.
In a series of undercover interviews, investigators posed as 15 and 16-year-olds coming to Planned Parenthood for advice and help.
Counselors are caught encouraging teens to participate in sadomasochistic acts, ensuring them that people find that it “feels good.” One tells underage teens “if it’s consensual, it’s OK… It’s totally OK.”
In the trailer that details Planned Parenthood’s illegal and dangerous activities, an investigator posing as a 13-year-old girl divulges that she had sexual intercourse with a man who is 31. The nurse immediately cuts her off, saying, “I don’t want to know the age… It could be reported as rape.”
In another interview, an investigator posing as a pimp explains that he has girls working for him that “are like fifteen, fourteen.” The counselor assures, “If they’re fourteen and under, just send them right there if they need an abortion.”
Live Action reports:
Planned Parenthood consistently fights any law requiring parental consent or involvement for minors seeking sexual and reproductive health care, including abortions. PP’s website encourages teens to circumvent their parents and the law.
Planned Parenthood of Hudson Peconic sponsored a training seminar, designed for educators of teenagers, titled “50 Shades of Safe.” The seminar offered workshops/classes on “how a BDSM relationship is successfully navigated between sexual partners” and on the “elements of a healthy BDSM relationship.”
Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million a year from taxpayers, in the name of so-called sex education and health. Furthermore, under ObamaCare, Planned Parenthood has announced that it will receive undisclosed funds through the $75-million-a-year PREP (Personal Responsibility and Education Program), with 15 affiliates already having received grants.
Planned Parenthood’s stance on what kind of sexual activity is good or not: “Just because a sexual behavior isn’t common or some people disapprove of it or the reasons people enjoy it, doesn’t mean there is anything wrong with it. Many people enjoy less common kinds of sex, but they are often less likely to discuss it with others. One way to think about uncommon kinds of sex is this: if no one is hurt by the kind of sex someone might enjoy, than [sic] it is probably okay.”
Planned Parenthood equates unrestricted sexual activity with “freedom, equality and dignity” according to their “Declaration of Sexual Rights.” Abortions and hormone drugs are listed as entitlements that contribute to “the freedom, equality and dignity of all people” – including teens and children.
Planned Parenthood covers up the sexual abuse of young girls by offering them clandestine sexual and reproductive health care, including abortions, and coaching these young ladies on how to keep the activity secret from their parents.
Via Think Progress:
Emily Letts, a 25-year-old abortion counselor at a clinic in New Jersey, knew that she wanted to use her own abortion story to help other woman making their own decisions about whether to end a pregnancy. At first, she thought she would write a blog post about her experience. But then she had the idea to film it.
In an essay published on Cosmopolitan.com, Letts explains that she decided to film her procedure after trying and failing to find a video of a surgical abortion online. There’s at least one YouTube clip of a woman taking the abortion pill, which is the non-surgical option for ending an early pregnancy, but that’s it. So Letts decided that she wanted to have a surgical procedure — the option that seems scarier to many women — to help educate people about what it’s actually like.
“We talk about abortion so much and yet no one really knows what it actually looks like,” Letts writes on Cosmo’s site. “A first trimester abortion takes three to five minutes. It is safer than giving birth. There is no cutting, and risk of infertility is less than one percent. Yet women come into the clinic all the time terrified that they are going to be cut open, convinced that they won’t be able to have kids after the abortion.”
The few representations of abortion on film are fictional, and they tend to portray it extremely negatively. A recent review of the fictional abortion storylines in TV shows and movies found that the procedure is typically depicted as far more dangerous than it actually is. On the screen, women often die after having an abortion, even though women in real life have virtually zero chance from dying from a legal procedure. Ultimately, pop culture helps further the myth that abortion is always dangerous, dramatic, and violent.
So Letts set out to offer a different narrative with her own story. Her video, which isn’t at all graphic, focuses on the top half of her body. It shows her doing some deep breathing and humming during the short procedure, as well as talking things over with the staff in the room. “I feel good. I’m done,” she says after it’s over.
About a month after her procedure, Letts tells the camera that she’s been reflecting about her experience. “I don’t feel like a bad person. I don’t feel sad,” she explains, pointing out that many of the women who come to her clinic assume that everyone feels guilty after having an abortion. “I knew that what I was going to do was right — it was right for me and for no one else.”
Yes, it was right for you, and you, and your over-inflated ego. It certainly was no good for the now dead child was it? But who cares about that right? Surely not Emily “Look at Me” Letts, because this was all about her wasn’t it? As McCain noted in his synopsis, and as I have noted, the Holy Grail of Feminism is to kill your baby and become a Lesbian
You’re not a real feminist until you (a) kill your own baby and (b) become a lesbian. Of course, if you avoid heterosexuality altogether, this deprives you of the opportunity to get pregnant (and then kill your baby like a good feminist should), but lifelong lesbians can make up for skipping the otherwise necessary abortion experience by encouraging other women to kill their babies.
Feminism, like all strains of Liberalism is about selfishness, and self- absorption.

The Other McCain has an update of sorts on the outrage some Feminists vented at Kirsten Dunst because she dared that she saw benefits to traditional gender roles
Hayley Hoover at The Gloss (calling Dunst’s comments “a pile of problematic bullshit”) and Ariane Sommer at Fox News(accusing Dunst of “regressing to a 1950s archetype of womanhood”). So if there was not perhaps an “outbreak of mass Dunst-induced psychosis,” certainly the reaction was more widespread than the comments of Ryan and Ritzen.
Furthermore, since when is calling attention to the lunatic screeching of feminists the same as “pathetic pandering of the notion that women are crazy and overemotive”? Conflating these separate categories — women and feminists — is at the heart of complaints that conservative women have been making for decades, namely the tendency of the liberal media to present feminist ideologues as the spokeswomen for the interests of all women. (This tendency is paralleled by the way the media present labor unions as representatives of “the working class” and present Al Sharpton as a spokesman for “civil rights.”) What the women defending Dunst —e.g., Dana Loesch, Katie Yoder and Melissa Braunstein – are saying is that feminists don’t speak for them and their interests.
And thank God for that! If women let feminists speak for them, they must believe that the pinnacle of women’s rights is legalized abortion, all heterosexual intercourse is rape, and lesbianism is the only possible escape from male oppression. Insofar as feminist ideology has prevailed, the effect of its influence has been to send its disciples hurtling toward extinction by encouraging them to view the normal means of procreation with horror, as a cruel device of the patriarchy.
“I don’t want a baby. . . . Nothing will make me want a baby. . . . “This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion.”
– Amanda Marcotte
Well there you go, Amanda Marcotte is still crazier than a pet coon, and Feminists are still not pleased when a woman does not know her place.
You should go read the rest, no one really rips the mask off the grotesque face of Feminism like Stacy McCain does. Basically, Feminism, to me, is just another arm of Leftism. They seek to control women’s actions, and words by bullying tactics, and they seek to
empower embitter as many women as they can. And, in the end, as the title suggests, Feminists will lose because they are fighting against nature Yes, you heard me, Feminism is about indoctrinating women to change basic behaviors that women have naturally. Women love men, are attracted to men, and yes, need men. And yes, most women want to be mothers and cherish the role that mothers and wives traditionally have had and flourished in. Feminists would love to change all that. They seek to convince women that they do not need men, and that staying at home and raising kids is akin to slavery, and that the two greatest achievements any woman can have is to A) have an abortion, and B) become a Lesbian.
And, yes, I do realize that any Feminist reading that last paragraph will become outrageously outraged, but really, they seem to be perpetually outraged anyway, so…..
Yep, this is the founder of Planned Parenthood in all her glory. H/T I’m 41
I keep telling myself that THIS cannot be real
British celebrity-wannabe was interviewed about her decision to abort her child in order to improve her chances to appear on a reality show.
From the Mirror:
Wannabe celebrity Josie Cunningham last night confessed the chance of appearing on TV’s Big Brother was worth more than her unborn child’s life.
Puffing on a cigarette and rubbing her baby bump, the controversial model and call girl – who will have her abortion at a clinic this week – said: “I’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it now.
“An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead, I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way.”
We KNOW what medical science has to say about whether or not an unborn baby is a living human being. Yet the Left rejects that science. Maybe we ought to call them life-deniers?
At Planned Parenthood’s annual gala last night, attendees and your PULSEr stopped laughing at comedian and emcee Tig Notaro just long enough to watch Nancy Pelosi receive the Margaret Sanger award for her work defending abortion rights. In her acceptance speech, Pelosi slammed abortion opponents, especially criticized the “personhood” laws some of them are pushing and said the struggle for reproductive rights will continue whatever SCOTUS decides on the contraception mandate.
“When you see how closed their minds are or oblivious or whatever it is — dumb — then you know what the fight is about,” Pelosi said. “Whatever happens with the court…we must remember these battles will not be the end of the fight,” she added.
Margaret Sanger was evil, that is historical fact. I wonder if Pelosi thinks like Sanger did. Or if she is ignorant of Sanger’s evil ways. Or maybe Pelosi thinks she has to receive the award to see who it is named for?
This years Margaret Sanger Award goes to… Nancy Pelosi.
The former Speaker of the House is set to receive the award which is given out annually as a top honor by Planned Parenthood.
The award is named after Margaret Sanger, the Planned Parenthood founder and proponent of eugenics, including the forced sterilization and abortions of minorities.
Donald Douglas has more on Margaret Sanger and the eugenics movement.
At Twitchy, “Nancy Pelosi presented with Margaret Sanger Award.”

Seriously, this is an award that no one in their right mind would want to accept. If you haven’t yet, do yourself a favor and pick up Rober Zubrin’s, Merchants of Despair: Radical Environmentalists, Criminal Pseudo-Scientists, and the Fatal Cult of Antihumanism. You will literally cringe at the depravity of Margaret Sanger’s racist eliminationism, which is situated today smack dab in the middle of the Democrat Party left.
Again I ask of Democrats. Why are you still supporting the party of moral depravity and barbarism?
This one wants to do some select cutting on Christian males as The Other McCain, an expert on Crazy Feminists tells us
The problem with trying to keep up with feminist insanity is, while you’re distracted by one deranged nutjob — say, Amanda Marcotte, or that fat chick with paranoid rape fears — another one is likely to go off her meds and completely melt down while you’re not looking.
I have never heard of Levites, until she announced her obsession with my “boys” As a Christian male, I assume she has a thing for my junk, which would be fine, except she is as crazy as a pet coon with rabies as her Tweet above shows. Or maybe she is just attention whoring, or trying to be more sickening than Sarah Silverman, who used to be funny before she became like totally obsessed with her vagina. Why are so many Feminists obsessed with their vaginas? What are they really 13-year-old boys in disguise? The Laura Levites episode reveals something else, and that is the one way direction the Left’s “don’t hate” mentality runs. They, as leftists are free to hate. We, as Conservatives are supposed to keep our mouths shut. And if we do speak, we are “haters”!
It really should be this piece by Matt Walsh concerning the DC Abortion Fund’s publicity stunt
The DC Abortion Fund is here to help. They are an “all volunteer, non-profit” organization dedicated to offering abortion grants to underprivileged women. No word on whether they are the sort of non-profit that doesn’t turn a profit, or the sort of non-profit that, like Planned Parenthood, rakes in over a billion dollars a year (half from taxpayers), pays their executives enormous six figure salaries, and banks a large but totally non-profitable profit.
Whatever the case, as the website stipulates, their services are needed because women face a “multitude of state and national restrictions designed to deny their access” to abortion.
True enough. Think of the rigorous controls they have in places like Pennsylvania, where a serial killer was able to operate a well known baby butchery in plain sight for three decades, with nothing stopping him from keeping baby corpses in his fridge, or drowning babies in the toilet, or segregating his waiting room based on race, or drugging women with dangerous narcotic cocktails, or perforating their insides with unsterilized equipment leaving some of them dead or permanently infertile.
Imagine what he could have done without all of those restrictions cramping his style.
Luckily, The DC Abortion Fund — much like Gosnell himself — likes to keep it classy. That’s why they offer a gift to anyone who chooses to donate to their organization:
A coat hanger pendant.
Yes, really, a coat hanger pendant.
Pro-choicers have taken to Twitter to express their gratitude for the unique opportunity to fund a child’s murder AND sport a fashionable piece of jewelry to commemorate the occasion:
Who wouldn’t want to help, Colleen?

Why does she hate babies so much? The Other McCain and I want to know
Marcotte’s bloodthirsty zeal for baby-killing is notorious, and so we aren’t really surprised when she makes statements like this:
“I don’t particularly like babies. They are loud and smelly and, above all other things, demanding. No matter how much free day care you throw at women, babies are still time-sucking monsters with their constant neediness.”
Yeah, today I didn’t get much blogging done because I babysat my grandson while my daughter-in-law went to her college classes, but the phrase “time-sucking monster” never occurred to me while I was feeding him, changing him and rocking him to sleep.
So why does Amanda Marcotte hate babies so much? Because she is supremely and shamelessly selfish:
No matter how flexible you make my work schedule, my entire life would be overturned by a baby. I like my life how it is, with my ability to do what I want when I want without having to arrange for a babysitter. I like being able to watch True Detective right now and not wait until baby is in bed. I like sex in any room of the house I please. I don’t want a baby. I’ve heard your pro-baby arguments. Glad those work for you, but they are unconvincing to me. Nothing will make me want a baby. . . .
I like not having a giant growth protruding out of my stomach. I hate hospitals and like not having stretch marks. . . .
This is why, if my birth control fails, I am totally having an abortion. Given the choice between living my life how I please and having my body within my control and the fate of a lentil-sized, brainless embryo that has half a chance of dying on its own anyway, I choose me.
Well, there is a huge difference between not wanting a baby and hating babies. And saying such vile, twisted things about babies? Marcotte really IS that crazy, or she is just attention whoring. But, either way she is a self-absorbed person, and RS McCain is correct. It is good this vile woman will not reproduce.
Of course, there are many Feminists, like Marcotte, who are incredibly bitter, I have diagnosed them as suffering from Eternal Bitterness Syndrome, and they seem to be constantly angry. The last people, in other words, who should ever be near kids.
UPDATE!!It seems I might have found the source of the insanity that controls Marcotte. maybe she has been drinking way too many of these
(Huffington Post) — Two abortion clinics on Thursday join the growing list of Texas providers shutting down because of restrictions passed by the state legislature last summer, the clinics’ owner said.
Whole Women’s Health, which operates five abortion clinics and one ambulatory surgical center in Texas, will close its rural clinics in Beaumont and McAllen, Amy Hagstrom Miller, CEO of Whole Women’s Health, told HuffPost. The McAllen clinic was the last center serving women in the Rio Grande Valley, and the Beaumont clinic was the only abortion provider between Houston and Louisiana.
In a small town, it’s “next to impossible” to comply with the new law, which requires that abortion providers have admitting privileges at a local hospital, and that all abortions take place in ambulatory surgical centers, Miller said in an interview.
“The majority of the rural providers in Texas are now closed,” Miller said. “I’m stubborn or stupid to have kept mine open this long, but I can’t keep my doors open when I can’t see any patients.”
The anti-abortion law signed by Gov. Rick Perry (R) last summer, known as HB 2, also bans abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and restricts how doctors can administer abortions with medication. Republican supporters of the bill said it was intended to protect women’s health.
The number of Texas abortion clinics has dropped by more than half since the state legislature began passing new restrictions on pregnancy termination in 2011. There were 44 clinics in 2011. With the closing of Miller’s two clinics, there are now 20. Only six of the remaining facilities are ambulatory surgical centers, which means that the remaining 14 will soon have to close unless they can comply with the new building requirements by the September 2014 deadline.
It would be immensely satisfying to watch Abbott crush Davis.
Via Texas Tribune:
After what are shaping up to be easy primary wins in March for the leading gubernatorial candidates, Republican Greg Abbott starts the general election race for governor with an 11-point lead over Democrat Wendy Davis, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.
Meanwhile, several statewide races on the Republican primary ballot – for lieutenant governor, attorney general and comptroller – appear headed for May runoffs. None of the leaders in those races looks close to the 50 percent support they would need to win next month’s primary outright.
In the governor’s race, Abbott would beat Davis 47 percent to 36 percent in a general election held today, with 17 percent of registered voters saying they have not made up their minds about which candidate to support, according to the poll.
“We’ve been talking since the beginning of this race about whether anything would be different, and we’re not seeing anything that’s different,” said Jim Henson, co-director of the poll and head of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “There was some talk about how Davis had done better in our last poll, and that was partially an artifact of her rise in the fall, and we’re seeing something of a reassertion of the normal pattern.”
In the October survey, Davis’ announcement and sudden political celebrity cut the Republican’s lead over her to 6 percentage points. Now, the distance between the two has widened a bit.
The Los Angeles Times and Belgium see eye to eye. In an editorial on Valentine’s Day, Times editorial writer Scott Martelle wrote“Extend assisted suicide to children? Belgium says yes; so should we.”
“The Times’ editorial board has gone on record supporting the right of terminally ill patients to end their lives on their own terms, and I hope state lawmakers — or voters — eventually agree,” Martelle wrote. So why not Euthanasia for Kiddies?
It is a distressing concept, and the idea of helping a child die sounds incredibly cold and morally and ethically unsound — until you dive into the issue. While it raises painful and conflicting emotions, and choices, the Belgians — who have pushed assisted suicide to the edge before — are on the right, groundbreaking track.
Groundbreaking? Yes, it is, but not in a positive way, not at all.
And that right should extend to children, in tightly controlled circumstances and with legal protections. I suggest a system, much like the Belgians approved, in which the child (first and foremost), the child’s parents or guardians, the attending physician and a court-appointed lawyer, medical doctor or psychologist acting as the child’s agent all agree that assisting the death is the humane thing to do.
It’s not an easy conclusion to reach. But if we believe that it is humane to give terminally ill adults the right to end their lives with medical help, how can we not extend that ability to terminally ill minors? Because of their age, they should be forced to suffer more than an adult?
…for a child facing death in the short term, and in agony, we as a society should enable the child’s right to die with the least amount of suffering — under the protocol (or a variation) suggested above.
Yes, it is “humane” you see. It is enabling, until the ever present unintended consequences start occurring, which they always do.
