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?
Go read it all, it is worth it
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.
She is sarcastic, snarky, obnoxious, and like totally engrossed with letting us all know how smart she is. Of course in reality, she is about as smart as a stepped on roach, with all the intellectual depth of a dried up up mud puddle
On MSNBC’s “NOW w/Alex Wagner” on Thursday, comedian Sarah Silverman teamed up with MSNBC regular Lizz Winstead to attack the conservative position on abortion. In a video released earlier in the week, Silverman had appeared with a “profanity-spouting” Jesus to deliver a pro-abortion message.
“It’s total hypocrisy,” Silverman said. “I mean, these are people who are anti-big government. And yet they want to make laws about my vagina and what I do with my body. I don’t think that would be tolerated if we started legislating men’s bodies. I mean, the truth is sperm has a sense of smell. That’s just something scientist have known for a decade. That means that sperm is life. And so in my opinion, we’ve got to save those babies. If they’re going to masturbate into a shower drain or a gym sock, we’ve got to stop them.”
Sarah, you ignorant woman you. No one, anywhere wants to have anything to do with your vagina. Frankly, a gym sock is more attractive, and likely smarter, so get over your self will ya? Yes, I know, Sarah, I know, you think women are all about their sexual organs because you are an angry, embittered Feminut, and that is what angry, bitter Feminuts like you reduce women to.
Leftists like you love to point your finger at Conservatives and say we are “anti-science” yet, Sarah, it is you, and your ilk that turns a blind eye towards medical science where abortion is concerned. No wonder you are so damned angry and negative, your whole ideology is based on lies, and base denials of reality. Face it Sarah, you are no better than a doll with a string on the back. Pull the string and you utter some nonsensical blatherings like the mind-numbed useful idiot you are!
Tens of thousands of pro-life activists endured frigid temperatures and a snow storm Wednesday as they gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., to mark the 41st anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that has prepared the way for an estimated 56 million abortions.
In past years the march has drawn crowds estimated between 400,000 and 650,000. However, the winter storm that blew through Washington on Tuesday led to cancellations of numerous buses and planes, creating a visible drop in numbers at this year’s rally and march. The Philadelphia archdiocese, for instance, canceled all of their buses.
Famed Christian singer and songwriter Matt Maher was scheduled to lead music for a half hour before the rally, but his slot was cancelled because of the weather. Instead he opened and closed the rally beginning at noon.
Taking the stage to welcome the marchers shortly after noon, March for Life organizers insisted pro-lifers wouldn’t be daunted by the frigid weather in D.C. “We may be freezing, but we’re freezing for the best cause in the world,” said Patrick Kelly, chairman of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “No sacrifice is too great for this cause,” said Jeanne Monahan, the group’s newly minted president.
Speakers at the rally included Dr. James Dobson, Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL), Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), and Washington State Democratic Legislator Roger Freeman.
“Your faces are cold but your hearts are on fire, right?” Dr. James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, asked the crowd. He related that in 1973 he was driving home on the freeway when he learned of the Roe v. Wade decision. “I grieved over it because I knew it meant millions of babies would die,” he said. “Who would’ve known it would be 56 million by this point 41 years later?”
Telling the story of a couple he counselled to choose life for their child, he told the crowd, “I say to you, if you’re facing a similar situation, …let your baby live!” He then marvelled at the youth of the crowd. “Look at the young people who are here!” he said. “You are the hope of the future and together we’re going to win this fight!”
Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-VA, who changed his flight to Israel to attend the March, thanked those present for “braving these unbelievably cold temperatures” and “giving voice to our cause of protecting life.” “I believe that one day in the not too distance future our movement will be victorious because we will prevail in securing a culture of life,” he said.
“You are our movement’s not-so-secret weapon,” he added. “Those of us in public office are merely fortunate to stand on your shoulders.”
The majority leader also announced that next week, the House of Representatives “will vote once and for all to end taxpayer funding for abortions.”
Vicky Hartzler, R-MO, told marchers, “We are here today to remember the millions of lives devastated with abortion and to pledge ourselves anew to upholding the most fundamental” right, “the right to life.”
Noting there are 1.2 million abortion per year in the U.S., she said, “There are more babies who perish each year through abortion than people who live in an entire congressional district.”
An adoptive mother, Hartzler said, “Every life is valuable and has a god ordained purpose. All babies are wanted.”
Giovanna Romero of Latinas por la Vida told marchers that blacks and Hispanics are “systematically targeted by the culture of death.” “Who is with me to fight the good fight?” she asked. “We are the pro-life generation and we will make a mark in history… We will make an end to abortion!”
Donna Harrison, executive director of the American Association of Pro-Life Ob/Gyns, said the front lines of the abortion battle are changing. It’s no longer the clinic and the hospital, but the dorm room and campus clinic because of the promotion of emergency contraceptive drugs, which act as abortifacients. She told the youth, “you’ve now become the frontline in the battle against abortion.”
After the noon rally on the Mall, participants marched to the Supreme Court, where post-abortion men and women from the Silent No More Awareness Campaign shared their testimony.
The rally schedule was shortened today because of the cold, with temperatures hovering around zero, the marchers are undaunted.
In a homily at Washington’s National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception Tuesday evening, Cardinal Sean O’Malley said the cold weather is “just perfect, because the colder it is the better our witness. They will know we are serious. That is why we are here.”
“We absolutely will go on tomorrow. The March has never been canceled because of extreme temperatures, and it won’t be canceled tomorrow for that reason,” Jeanne Monahan, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, told the Law of Life Summit on Tuesday.
March organizers highlighted the fact that members of both parties spoke, although Republicans made a stronger showing. The Republican National Committee has said they are delaying their annual winter meeting for the March this year and have chartered a bus to bring legislators to the Mall.
The theme for this year’s march is adoption, which Monahan called a “heroic decision” for women in crisis pregnancies. “We want to eliminate the stigma of adoption and encourage women to pursue this noble option,” she said in a press release.
The March for Life organizers are encouraging Twitter users to use the hashtags #whywemarch and #marchforlife throughout the day.

Eleanor Holmes Norton is a walking testament to the dangers of idiocy
Democratic Congressional Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) appeared on MSNBC on Monday where she declared a new bill working its way through the House of Representatives amounts to a declaration of a “new war on women.” She said she was denied the chance to speak at an all-male congressional hearing on a bill which would limit the use of public funds to provide abortion in the District of Columbia. Denouncing the bill, Norton said that the GOP “lost the war” but seem eager to fight it again.
“I took special issue with the hearing because I wanted to testify on a very small part of the hearing that does real damage to the District of Columbia,” Norton said. “Part of a larger bill that was the kickoff to the new war on women.”
Just make it up there Eleanor, just make it up as you go. If you really want to see a war, consider the Left’s War on Honest Debate!
Stacy McCain has proof from Argentina, where radical nutcase supporters of abortion attacked Catholics who dare to be pro-life.
You may have seen this video earlier — Ed Morrissey featured it at Hot Air — but I didn’t see it until it was tweeted to me by Covenant College student Keifer Wynn and, because it was in Spanish, at first I wasn’t quite sure what I was looking at.
“Abortistas atacan a católicos que defendían la Catedral de San Juan,” is the headline, and the description: “Estas son las hordas de lesbianas y abortistas del Encuentro Nacional de Mujeres.”
So, translation via Google: “Abortionists attack Catholics defending the Cathedral of San Juan. These are the hordes of lesbians and abortionists of the National Conference of Women.” Keep in mind that when I watched this, I hadn’t even translated the titles yet:
Every year in Argentina, the National Conference of Women — sponsored by various non-profit NGOs — gathers in some city and, in recent years, the event has featured a protest against the Catholic Church. So when the radical feminists marched on the cathedral in San Juan de Cuyo on November 24, they were met by 1,500 Catholics who locked arms to form a human shield around the cathedral:
The women, many of them topless, spray-painted the men’s crotches and faces and swastikas on their chests and foreheads, using markers to paint their faces with Hitler-like mustaches. They also performed obscene sexual acts in front of them and pushed their breasts onto their faces, all the while shouting “get your rosaries out of our ovaries.” . . .
While the site of the protest was the front of the cathedral . . . “the whole city awoke to graffiti in favor of abortion.”
Inside the cathedral, 700 people were also in prayer accompanied by their bishop . . .
After unsuccessfully trying to get into the building, the women burned a human-sized effigy of Pope Francis. “If the pope were a woman, abortion would be legal,” they shouted . . .
The police reportedly told the media they were unable to intervene because “they are women.”
As usual with rabid abortion proponents, their deranged state of mind is pretty clear to see. they celebrate perverse sexual acts, and of course they celebrate killing babies in the womb as if it were some sacred “choice”.
Nuttier Than Nutty Nuttery it would seem. I have had debates with several hard core “choicers”, and let me tell you, they redefine the word fanatic. The Other McCain report on some of these whack jobs
This is crazy. In the comments on an earlier post, somebody linked an article at RH Realty Check, a site that is pro-abortion with the monomaniacal zeal of a Chinese Communist Party “family planning” commissar. I mean, Amanda Marcotte is moderate by comparison.
“RH” stands for “Reproductive Health,” which is progressive code for KILL YOUR BABY NOW and this is from their “About Us” page:
We enjoyed the support of the UN Foundation and the editorial independence entrusted to us for six years, from 2006-2012. In January 2012 we officially became our own independent 501c3 non-for-profit organization.
OK, now I understand: The UN Foundation was something zero-population-growth zealot Ted Turner donated a bunch of money to, back when Ted was banging Jane Fonda and before the Time/Warner/AOL merger devastated his fortune. So that makes sense.
Anyway, somebody linked an RH Reality Check article in the comments and, while the article itself wasn’t particularly interesting, I noticed that on the sidebar they had this link:
WTF? They’re campaigning against a reality TV show because of the Holocaust? I mean, Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo is a crime against humanity as far as I’m concerned, but why would anyone invoke the Holocaust to argue for the cancellation of the Duggars?
Go read it all folks. As I stated I used to try to talk sense to pro-abortion people on message boards, and the old Delphi forums. In fact I got to know Ed Daley on some of those forums. I really was a bit naive back then. I thought I could use medical facts to convince the “choicers” that abortion kills a baby. To me shock, and horror, I found out they too believe it is a baby, and they revel in the “right” to destroy it. To them, a woman is not whole unless she can have her baby executed in the womb. How depraved are they? Well, consider many of the regularly compared unborn babies to parasites, and cancerous tumors, yes really.
For years Auburn and Florida played every October, it was a great rivalry, so during those games, I always hated that other team that wears Blue and Orange. I would even scream “War Chicken” to mock Auburn fans. But following the rules of the SEC, Team First, Conference Second, Game Third, I have always Pulled for Auburn in bowl games, and out of conference games. But, on this story, I am a enthusiastic supporter of Auburn! So is Stacy McCain, and he is a Bama fan!
. . . but she almost didn’t have a name, because if not for a woman’s courageous decision, she never even would have had a life:
Auburn University selected its 100th Miss Homecoming in Molly Anne Dutton this weekend. . . .
The 22-year-old’s biological mother was faced with an extremely difficult situation. The victim of a sexual assault, the young woman became pregnant with Dutton and was given an ultimatum by her husband: Either abort the baby or get a divorce.
She chose to keep the baby, leading to a “ridiculously inspirational life story” for her daughter. Rather than aborting, she carried the baby to term and worked with Lifeline Children’s Services, a Christian adoption group in Birmingham, Ala., to ensure that the baby girl was given a good life.
Go read the whole amazing story and try not to cry too much.
God Bless Molly, and her mother for inspiring us all. Love that smile Molly!

Jodi Giddings at Victory Girls writes about Dr. Susan Robinson, one of only four . . . well, “doctors” is the word, but it seems somehow inappropriate to describe someone whose business is death:
Only four American doctors remain who perform third-trimester abortions. One of those “doctors” is Susan Robinson. Dr. Robinson, aside from her other duties in her practice, kills viable babies for a living, what she deems “abortion medicine.” And as if that isn’t troubling enough, it gets even worse: she takes photos of the dead babies for their mothers to take home in memorial. Yep, you read that right. Dr. Robinson, after “euthanizing” infants mere weeks from being born snaps photos of them for the mother to take home to remember the dead infant. . . .
As I said SICK! But that is not the most disturbing part. Poor, poor Dr. Robinson is sad because other doctors do not appreciate her acts of infanticide
“Being an abortion provider is very stigmatized. Other doctors look down on you and think of you as like the lowest of the low.”
Gee, I wonder why anyone, especially doctors who have devoted their lives to SAVING lives would frown upon you “Dr” Robinson? maybe because what you do is evil? Maybe that has something to do with it? Maybe it is due to the fact that real doctors know better than anyone how despicable your deeds really are?
