Scientifically Clueless Pro-Abortion Legislator Wants to Fine Men for Masturbating as “Act Against Unborn Child”

A Texas state lawmaker’s new pro-abortion bill is doing what she created it to do – get attention.

The “satirical” Texas House Bill 4260, sponsored by state Rep. Jessica Farrar, would fine men $100 for masturbating and require the state to publish an informed consent booklet for men seeking a vasectomy, Viagra or a colonoscopy, among other things, according to The Hill.

The bill is Farrar’s protest to the abortion regulations passed in Texas in the past few years. She claims it would put the same restrictions on men that Texas abortion laws do on women.

“Although HB 4260 is satirical, there is nothing funny about current health care restrictions for women and the very real legislation that is proposed every legislative session,” Farrar, a Democrat, wrote on Facebook. “Women are not laughing at state-imposed regulations and obstacles that interfere with their ability to legally access safe healthcare, and subject them to fake science and medically unnecessary procedures.”

Her bill, which has no chance of passing, would prohibit ejaculation outside either a vagina or medical facility, in what it describes as an “act against an unborn child, and failing to preserve the sanctity of life,” according to the Independent. It also would provide conscience protections for doctors who do not want to perform a vasectomy or prescribe Viagra because of “personal, moralistic or religious beliefs.”

“What I would like to see is this make people stop and think,” Farrar told The Texas Tribune. “Maybe my colleagues aren’t capable of that, but the people who voted for them, or the people that didn’t vote at all, I hope that it changes their mind and helps them to decide what the priorities are.”

But pro-lifers say Farrar is the one who is isn’t thinking. Her bill ignores basic biological facts about human life and abortion.

As Daily Wire contributor Harry Khachatrian commented on Twitter:

Democrats’ argument for abortion: “stabbing an unborn baby in the head & sucking out its brains is the same thing as masturbating.” Smart!

 

9:24 AM – 13 Mar 2017 · Toronto, Ontario

 

It is disingenuous for Farrar to equate male masturbation and ejaculation to the intentional killing of a human life through abortion. A man’s sperm and a woman’s eggs are not separate, individual new life. Only when they are put together do they become a human being – a separate, living human entity with his or her own unique DNA. This is well established science.

“A sperm has twenty-three chromosomes; even though it is alive and can fertilize an egg, it can never make another sperm,” former U.S. Surgeon General C. Everett Koop wrote in 1979. “An egg also has twenty-three chromosomes, and it can never make another egg. Thus, we have sperm that cannot reproduce and eggs that cannot reproduce unless they get together.

“All that makes up the adult is present as the ovum and the sperm are united – the whole genetic code,” Koop continued.

Pro-lifers do not want to end abortion because we want to control women’s bodies, as Farrar implies. Pro-lifers want to end abortion because it destroys the life of an innocent human being inside the woman’s body. Ending abortion is not about regulating something that has the potential to become a life. It’s about protecting an actual, unique, irreplaceable human life from being destroyed.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards’ Salary Has Gone Up a Whopping 265% to Almost $1 Million

It must be nice to be untouchable by mainstream media. You can lie through those shiny white teeth and mainstream media will treat every rehearsed and distorted word like truth.

In an age when liberal news media shows its disdain for corporate America (unless those corporations are touting their hypocritical, pro-LGBT, public potty policies), leftie journalists can’t show enough love for abortion mogul Cecile Richards.

She has “privilege”. Liberals call it “white privilege”. It’s their racist way of blaming white people for nearly every social injustice under the sun. I’m black (biracial), and I find the whole white guilt/white privilegerhetoric racist and unproductive. But the hypocrisy of liberalism never ceases to amaze me. They denounce “privilege” at every turn, except when that turn leads to the nation’s leading abortion mogul. Just watch our latest video showing pro-abortion liberals’ multiple personality disorder at Richards’ recent lecture at the University of Chicago.

I mean, what corporation loses 670,540 clients in less than 10 years, slashes its major services (except one) up to 59%, increases its president’s salary by a whopping 265% (from $360,902 in 2006 to $957,952) and gets praised by the news media? Planned Parenthood.

Since Cecile Richards took over the helm of Planned Parenthood in 2006, she has transformed the abortion chain into a massive PR machine for Democrats. “Planned Parenthood, we’re non-partisan,” absurdly claimed Cecile Richards in a recent interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host, Mika Brzezinski. For the first time in years, FactCheck.org decided to actually fact-check one of the most public, polarizing and dishonest figures in America. (Factcheck.org hasn’t fact-checked Richards since 2015, and has only ever fact-checked her 3 times).

That whole “we’re non-partisan” line was shredded by the left-leaning organization as it revealed what all of us have known for a long time: Planned Parenthood is an extension of the Democratic Party. Ninety-eight percent to be exact. Just on the Congressional level, Planned Parenthood spent $681,679 on Democrats and a measly $12,500 on Republicans (1.8% to be exact).

Of course, an MSNBC host wouldn’t challenge such a blatant lie; the network has become the PR arm of Planned Parenthood. (‘Morning Joe’ has banned conservative Kellyanne Conway but wouldn’t dare ban Cecile Richards, despite her proven and blatant lying.) This highlights, too, the “privilege” of Cecile Richards on network news shows—she is never challenged by a guest with an opposing view. It’s easier to spew all those lies unchecked by someone who knows the truth.

Yes, she makes nearly a million dollars a year from scamming the American public, but what she represents (faux feminism) is more important to pro-abortion liberals than the facts…than women’s lives…than healthcare. In order to bolster Planned Parenthood’s (plummeting) healthcare “credentials”, Richards will repeatedly talk about how the abortion chain provides cancer screenings. Brzezinski, nor her producers, didn’t bother to ask any clarifying questions like: “Why have cancer screenings plummeted at Planned Parenthood?” Since Richards has taken over, the abortion business has conducted 519,158 fewer breast cancer screenings. In the last five years alone, these screenings have been in a free fall from 747,607 in 2010 to 363,803 in 2014—a drop of 51.3%!

Mainstream media and Cecile Richards don’t trust women—the public—with the truth.

And just a reminder for liberal evangelicals who theologically contort themselves to support Planned Parenthood, remember that love does not delight in evil but rejoices in the truth (1 Corinthians 13:6).

 From Richards’ total fabrication that “1 in 5 women use Planned Parenthood” to “Planned Parenthood is opposed to racism and prejudice of any kind”…honesty is not her policy. Planned Parenthood, birthed in eugenic racism and elitism, celebrates its eugenicist founder—Margaret Sanger—every year awarding journalists, celebrities and other activists with the Margaret Sanger Award.

Planned Parenthood ludicrously tweeted this quote from Cecile Richards: “Everyone must own the responsibility we have as a nation to stand against the violence being done to Black people in America. There are no words adequate to express the outrage and grief—stop killing black people.” Uhhh, this is a joke, right? So #BlackLivesMatter all of the sudden? The billion-dollar federation of abortion facilities (mostly located in predominantly minority neighborhoods) is, literally, the leading killer of unarmed black lives (an estimated 266 per day)! I would say that’s a sure sign of racism. Oh, and ripping apart any defenseless human being because of age and stage qualifies as the most violent form of prejudice.

Richards gets away with it all because she has “privilege”. You know, that conjured up evil that liberals normally wield to silence or demonize those they claim have it. I’m more interested in rights than privilege. And our most basic right—the Right to Life—is an unalienable right that should never be aborted. The late Dr. Mildred Jefferson, the first black woman to graduate from Harvard Medical School and become the first female surgeon at Boston Medical, was also the co-founder of the National Right to Life. And I love her words which guide the work of The Radiance Foundation and our desire to affirm that every human life has purpose: “I am not willing to stand aside and allow the concept of expendable human lives to turn this great land of ours into just another exclusive reservation where only the perfect, the privileged, and the planned have the right to live.”

Why Abortion Kills A Person Even If You Don’t Think The Unborn Are People Yet

When I was 21, someone stole my coat. At that moment, I became an ardent supporter of the pro-life movement. You might say that I have committed the logical fallacy of the non sequitur. I would say that you have committed the intellectual failure of lacking curiosity, for you have failed to ask why losing a coat would make me oppose abortion.

If you had been at least a little curious, and asked me what it was about the coat, I would have replied that there was nothing about the coat’s absence as such that swayed me, but rather that my coat contained my wallet, and my wallet contained two things: a fair amount of money, and an old, many-kissed photo of a gaulish lass I was once very fond of.

Money Equals Potential

Curiously, I felt I had lost something of value in both the money and the picture. The value of the picture was obvious, for it was the image of someone I loved. The value of the money, however, was less obvious, for cash is merely pieces of paper, and pieces of paper I generally regard as relatively mundane, as they are so often flushed down toilets or put through shredders.

But the thing with money is this: although it be but pieces of paper now, those pieces of paper can, through capitalist magic, be transmogrified into various things that do have value, such as a copy of Aurelius’ “Meditations,” or Ethiopian coffee for a friend. Thus, money has the value not of what it is, but of what it will become; or perhaps it is better to say that what the money will become is already present in the money before it is spent.

Thus, to have 22 dollars in a wallet and the intent to buy a book is to have the book in your wallet. So it was that when my coat was stolen, and my wallet with it, I did not lose a fair amount of money, but a pearl necklace for the above-mentioned gaulish lass.

So I learned that what a thing will become is contained within what a thing is, and in losing what a thing is, one loses what that thing will become. If this is true of money, it is only so much more true with people.

A Potential Person Is Still a Person

Much of the argumentation about abortion lies in the question of whether the fetus is a person. It would seem that if it is not a person, then it is not murder to destroy it. But if it is a person, then it is murder to destroy it. Based on my musings on the theft of my coat, I contend that whether the fetus is a person at any given moment of pregnancy is a non-issue, since, whatever it is now, it will, in fact, become a person. Therefore, to abort the fetus now is to annihilate the person that fetus would have naturally become.

Abortion has the same quality as all forms of killing. If I were to kill someone, I would have fundamentally transformed the nature of the universe from one with this person to one without it. The evil of murder does not derive from the fact that a death has occurred, for death comes to all. All murder does is expedite an inevitable event. The evil of murder, rather, is in the fact that the world has changed for everyone else who keeps on living. A hole has been made in the tapestry of life; Christmas dinner now has an empty chair. So it is with an abortion.

We often mourn untimely deaths by saying things like, “Tom never even got to make captain” or “Aline never even played her first recital.” If the death is particularly untimely, we cry out against heaven and say “Milo never even learned to ride a bike” or “Ike never got to learn to read.” We assume that the Tom who would have made captain already existed in the Tom who was just a lieutenant, or that the Aline who would play a professional recital already existed within the Aline who was practicing a toccata in conservatory.

What is it to be pro-life? It is to take this truth to its logical conclusion, and realize that the Tom who would have made captain was within the small bundle of cells inside the body of Tom’s now grieving mother. What is it to be pro-life? It is to look at the unborn dead, and say “He never even got to breathe.”

George Fields is a rather unimportant person who delights in unimportant things. Little is known about him. He currently resides in the Land of Cotton, since old times there are not forgotten.

Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Vendor StemExpress Drops Lawsuit Against David Daleiden

In a huge victory for the pro-life advocate responsible for uncovering the grisly business of selling body parts of aborted babies, StemExpress has dropped its lawsuit against David Daleiden.

Daleiden was responsible for the undercover videos exposing the Planned Parenthood abortion business and the abortion industry selling the body parts of aborted unborn children. StemExpress was a middleman that would take the body parts from Planned Parenthood and sell them at a much higher cost to scientists and researchers conducting dubious research with them.

After it was exposed, StemExpress filed a lawsuit against the light and attempting to cover up additional video footage and information related to the sales of the body parts.

Today ,StemExpress is dropping its lawsuit against The Center for Medical Progress and walking away with nothing.

“StemExpress was the first of Planned Parenthood’s accomplices to file a retaliatory lawsuit against citizen journalists and the first to seek an unconstitutional prior restraint on our First Amendment rights to speak and publish,” notes CMP Project Lead David Daleiden. “Now, the video is out for all the world to see, StemExpress faces criminal referral in multiple jurisdictions, and they are walking away from their own lawsuit empty-handed.”

He added: “This victory for free speech and citizen journalism was made possible by our masterful and indefatigable legal representation in this case by Chuck LiMandri at the Freedom of Conscience Defense Fund, and Katie Short at Life Legal Defense Foundation. StemExpress’ surrender sends an unmistakable message to Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, and all their political cronies who would dare to attack the First Amendment to cover up their crimes.”

StemExpress sued CMP in late July 2015, seeking an unconstitutional prior restraint on speech with a preliminary injunction gag order to prevent the release of undercover video of a business dinner with its Founder and CEO, Cate Dyer. In the video, Dyer made several shocking admissions about StemExpress obtaining fully intact fetuses from abortion cases, seeking “another 50 livers a week” from a “volume institution” like Planned Parenthood, and asserting that supplying fetal tissue should be “profitable” for abortion clinics.

Dyer’s recorded statements corroborated the whistleblower interview testimony of Holly O’Donnell, who worked as a procurement technician at StemExpress in Planned Parenthood clinics and observed profit motive between StemExpress and Planned Parenthood and the harvesting of intact fetuses.

StemExpress’ request for a gag order was denied in August 2015, and CMP released the footage. Less than a month after the release of the video, StemExpress counsel at McDermott, Will & Emery first approached CMP seeking a settlement in the case, and less than a year later, McDermott, Will & Emery withdrew from representation of StemExpress. The House Select Investigative Panel has since reported that StemExpress was engaged in widespread document destruction shortly after they filed their lawsuit, in violation of document retention rules and Congressional subpoenas.

The videos exposed StemExpress in July 2015 as a major illegal vendor of aborted fetal organs and tissue from some of the biggest Planned Parenthood affiliates in the country. StemExpress advertised to abortion clinics that supplying fetal tissue would be “financially profitable” and this advertisement was endorsed by Dr. Dorothy Furgerson, Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood Mar Monte where StemExpress harvested and purchased body parts. StemExpress’ longtime Medical Director, Dr. Ronald Berman, was also an abortion doctor at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.

StemExpress, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America have been referred by the Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Energy & Commerce Committee’s Select Investigative Panel to the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2).

The expose’ videos catching Planned Parenthood officials selling the body parts of aborted babies have shocked the nation. Here is a list of all twelve:

  • In the first video: Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood commented on baby-crushing: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
  • In the second video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Mary Gatter joked, “I want a Lamborghini” as she negotiated the best price for baby parts.
  • In the third video: Holly O’Donnell, a former Stem Express employee who worked inside a Planned Parenthood clinic, detailed first-hand the unspeakable atrocities and how she fainted in horror over handling baby legs.
  • In the fourth video: Planned Parenthood’s Dr. Savita Ginde stated, “We don’t want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” She also laughed while looking at a plate of fetal kidneys that were “good to go.”
  • In the fifth video: Melissa Farrell of Planned Parenthood-Gulf Coast in Houston boasted of Planned Parenthood’s skill in obtaining “intact fetal cadavers” and how her “research” department “contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States.”
  • In the sixth video: Holly O’Donnell described technicians taking fetal parts without patient consent: “There were times when they would just take what they wanted. And these mothers don’t know. And there’s no way they would know.”
  • In the seventh and perhaps most disturbing video: Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA. “‘You want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
  • In the eighth video: StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer admits Planned Parenthood sells “a lot of” fully intact aborted babies.
  • The ninth video: catches a Planned Parenthood medical director discussing how the abortion company sells fully intact aborted babies — including one who “just fell out” of the womb.
  • The 10th video: catches the nation’s biggest abortion business selling specific body parts — including the heart, eyes and “gonads” of unborn babies. The video also shows the shocking ways in which Planned Parenthood officials admit that they are breaking federal law by selling aborted baby body parts for profit.
  • Unreleased Videos: Unreleased videos from CMP show Deb Vanderhei of Planned Parenthood caught on tape talking about how Planned Parenthood abortion business affiliates may “want to increase revenue [from selling baby parts] but we can’t stop them…” Another video has a woman talking about the “financial incentives” of selling aborted baby body parts.
  • The 11th video: catches a Texas Planned Parenthood abortionist planning to sell the intact heads of aborted babies for research. Amna Dermish is caught on tape describing an illegal partial-birth abortion procedure to terminate living, late-term unborn babies which she hopes will yield intact fetal heads for brain harvesting.
  • The 12th video in the series shows new footage of Jennefer Russo, medical director at Planned Parenthood in Orange County, California, describing to undercover investigators how her abortion business tries to harvest intact aborted babies’ bodies for a local for-profit biotech company and changes the abortion procedure to do so.

Biden Tries to Walk Back The Biden Rule, Fails

Townhall
March 25, 2016

As Republicans continue to cite the Biden rule as evidence as to why they shouldn’t give President Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee Merrick Garland confirmation hearings or a vote on Capitol Hill, the White House is attempting to distance Vice President Joe Biden from the issue and his own words.

On Thursday, Biden dedicated an entire speech at Georgetown Law School to Garland’s nomination and attempted to walk back comments he made in 1992 declaring SCOTUS nominees should not be confirmed in a presidential election year.

Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday tried to clear his name and tout his record on Supreme Court nominations, calling Republican branding of his past remarks on the subject “ridiculous” and casting himself as a longtime advocate of bipartisan compromise in filling seats on the high court.

In a speech at Georgetown Law School, Biden issued a broad warning that Republicans’ election-year blockade of President Barack Obama’s nominee “can lead to a genuine Constitutional crisis” and sought to distance himself from the strategy. He argued Republicans have distorted a 1992 speech in which he seemed to endorse the notion of blocking any Supreme Court nominee put forward in the throes of the election season.

“There is no Biden rule. It doesn’t exist,” Biden told professors and students. “There is only one rule I ever followed in the Judiciary Committee. That was the Constitution’s clear rule of advice and consent.”

The problem? The Biden rule actually does exist and Biden created it when he served as the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
