Planned Parenthood Head Urges
GOP to Dump Pro-Life Base

Breitbart's Big Government, by Dr. Susan Berry

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/9/2012 8:18:30 PM

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards has advice for Republicans after their big defeat on Election Day -- to abandon their pro-life base. Following an election campaign in which the taxpayer-funded organization spent $15 million tearing down Republican candidates who vowed to cut off its federal funding, Richards now says she is reaching out to pro-choice Republicans. In an interview in The Huffington Post, Richards said, “Back in the olden days, the Republican Party was the party that supported people’s individual rights and keeping government out of personal health care decisions

And I'm sure the cowardly Republicans, like Bonner and Hannity, will be more than happy to oblige!

Planned Parenthood began as the American Birth Control League to rid the "human garden of its weeds: Blacks, Jews, Catholics, Southern Europeans . . . . " Margaret Sanger intended to use birth control and sterilization to accomplish her mission.
How's this for irony? Sanger opposed abortion and called it barbaric.

Killing babies is morally wrong regardless of what the law says.

Furthermore, even if the GOP disassociated from pro life the liberals would hate them just as much.

They just don't want to be reminded of the evil they are committing.

I see that everyone on the left is trying to tell the GOP that they should be more like the left. Support illegal immigrants, give on on abortion, tax everyone who has earned some money, give up your guns...

And I see the GOP falling for it because they so want to be loved and adored and maybe they'll get to play President next time.

I grieve for my country...

Social issues are an anchor around the neck of the GOP. If you are GOP, and you say the word "abortion", or "gay", you will lose. Face facts, GOP. If you want to win elections outside of the South, do not talk about social issues. Don't compromise your principles, but don't paint a target on your forehead, unless your name is Akin or Mourdoch, then, go ahead, but do it when you are a city councilman, not a Senate candidate.

As for the desperately pragmatic Fixit above, weasels are selected by other weasels. Planned Parenthood (if parenthood is allowed to occur) is an organization that profits from the misery of others, and does so through institutionalized homicide. I support those candidates who oppose such despicable practices and proclaim their convictions, and have the courage to accept the consequences.
It seems that the concept of shame has been scrubbed from the national slate. What else can be expected from the Obama Ministry of Truth?

Of the four, the only one to get elected was the most socially conservative. It's either an advantage or not a factor.

While I cannot stand Planned Parenthood and hate the Progressive eugenics ideology, I must say that this suggestion is not entirely crazy. I don't like abortion because I believe all potential life is a gift from God. But not everyone believes that. Now, I don't think anyone should dump anything. But I do think the GOP needs to take certain social issues off of the discussion. And one’s stand on abortion should NOT be a litmus test for being "conservative enough" either. A lot of Republicans do NOT necessarily believe that in the early term, a fertilized egg or embryo is a full, complete human being. The party would be much better to either completely drop this a platform issue or to softly accept only early first trimester choices while working diligently on educating the public about the reality and severity of the decision. We might not stop all abortion, but we could greatly cut down the number while continuing to get more support for the party. Ever since the party has taken hard stands against all forms of abortion, it has lost a LOT of support (voters) and any power to do anything to curb abortion. It has also allowed the left to turn abortion into an everyday, easy-to-get procedure that’s now all the way up to birth (which IS murder). And the left is still pushing it even further!

Isn't it better to make some headway in the right direction than to completely lose control and have everything roll in the wrong direction quickly?? Please think about it.

And yes, we should be standing for LESS government intrusion—not more.

By the way, dividing zygotes and tiny embryos are also not "babies"--nor are they sentient. Despite what some say, it is not necessarily as black and white as you want to make it.

To be honest, about 70% of all conceptions miscarry (that includes failure to implant). And about 30% of pregnancies, where implantation is confirmed, miscarry--but this is measured only at the earliest point of pregnancy detection. In general, among confirmed pregnancies within the first trimester (easily up to 5 or 6 weeks minimum), the number of miscarriages is actually closer to 15-20%. Of course, the further along the pregnancy progresses, the less likely it will miscarry. But my point is, that early term abortion is NOT necessarily so morally bankrupt an idea if your belief system is not stuck on the thought that "conception=life". And in truth, scientifically speaking, conception does not equal "life".

I'm confused, I thought the GOP was supposed to dump the Tea Party zealots in order to get elected. Wait, no, in order to win, the GOP was supposed to change their stance in illegal immigration. No, no, I'm wrong, the GOP was encouraged to embrace the GLBT voters and accept the "new norm" of gay marriage/adoption. My head aches, but I'll try again. The GOP must basically, no, fundamentally transform (heard those words before?) its platform and principles in order to WIN!!!!!! Cause winning is where it's at baby.
I have a suggestion for PP: crawl back into your spider hole and keep doing what you do best.

I remember the Pubbie Party pre-Reagan and pre-Gingrich. It was Democrat-lite, with no core values and no victories/majorities in the House or Senate. What Reagan and Gingrich had was the ability to explain where we should be going in a manner many could understand. What we lacked in those two worthies and the rest of the party was someone who could explain why we should stay the course and enforce that discipline. The TEA party won 2010 without any support or real help from the Pubbies other than a party name to file for candidacy. If we say we value the individual, but are willing to kill the inconvenient, we do not value the individual. We need to stand on principal. The TEA party gives us ideological discipline.

Planned PrenatalMurderHood would do well to stick to what they know best, murdering babies. Apparently they have mastered a skill that even Hitler could not.

Now, if only they could perfect a procedure that saves the innocent baby and aborts BOTH the mother and the sperm donor.

Uhhh -- pro-choice; individual rights; personal health care decisions; women’s preventive health care; women’s reproductive health care; etc. You need a Navajo Code Talker to figure out what the real subject of discussion is.

#23: Poster writes "about 70% of all conceptions miscarry (that includes failure to implant)." That´s a huge percentage. Can you provide a reliable citation source? I´d like to know. Are the 70/30 numbers reversed, maybe? Thanks.

If you want to see the demonrats abandon abortion then support it for the following reason

More than 40% of all the pregnancies by minority women end in abortion. The children they do not abort grow up to become democratic voters

If welfare queens faced mandatory abortion because they were on welfare then the number of children born to the ignorant, culturally backwards, illiterate women would fall and the democratic would have fewer voters.

Advocate abortion to control the cost of not only welfare but for things like Social Security

Support it call it what it is a way to control the number of voters for a particular group and see the democrats change.

Fight abortion with the truth of what abortion is.

The Republican Party caved to the Progressives several elections ago. This is just the final phase of the operation where it is all out in the open now, and the base is made to see the wisdom of abandoning unborn babies so that elections can be won by the Blue Pill Party that insists it´s a Red Pill Party.

The Party (Republican, that is) was over awhile back. What´s left is the remnants who make their money off the old system (pundits in the press) and therefore have a vested interest in keeping the illusion going. The Republican politicians know the score (hence you have Guvner Christie, Boehner and their ilk), and who kiss up to whatever Progressive is currently running things.

It´s over. It´s been over.

The cynical part of me agrees with #29. I would also add that it is libs who abort their children, conservatives don´t. Free abortions means fewer welfare leeches and fewer libs.

I used to be rabidly pro-life. Now I´m not so sure.

The Siren´s call for conservatives to prostitute themselves and give up the issues of legal immigration, small government and low taxes, and now being pro-life and pro-family is remeniscent of Darth Vader´s call to Luke Skywalker--"join ME, and together we will rule the galaxy"!

The Tea Party and Constitutional conservatives either need to take back the soul of the GOP, or consider making a run at third party.

Aborting a child in its development is not a social or political issue. It is, As #22 said, a matter of life and death, and #21/23 raises the crux of the argument; when does life begin. If it is true that ´scientifically speaking, conception does not equal "life"´, (I don´t agree, I see no other clear line of differentiation) then where, scientifically speaking, does life begin?

Give us a definition to hang the question on and it will quickly be resolved. Keep defining it as a ´social´ issue - a matter of ´rights´ for everyone except the ultimate victim - and it will remain an amorphous derivation that can be made to fit any number of arguments that the opposition wishes to raise for why it should be okay to kill certain kinds of human beings.

Question for Cecile and the Pro Abortion posters. Why are you so enthusiastic about killing, fully ´sentient,´ fully developed, crying babies who survive abortion procedures? Why do you classify them as any different than babies you raise as your children? With today´s medical technology we often rescue babies many weeks before full term and most of society applauds that. Don´t you? If your baby is under stress and is delivered many weeks before a natural birth would happen, doesn´t that argue for moving the abortion deadline back to at least the time in the gestation period when the baby is still forming lungs? For ´woman´s choice´ fans the question is when do you lift the death sentence for your children? If there is a gray area in this argument, abortionists have shifted it way too far to their side of the argument. I´ll happily wrestle with the problem of incest, rape and mother´s health vs two crying babies, kill that one.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To
National Review Online, by John Fund    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 8:38:34 AM     Post Reply
Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our
