´After Tiller´ gives voice
to US abortion doctors

Agence France-Presse, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 1/20/2013 2:43:35 PM

Forty years after the legalization of abortion in the United States, just four doctors offer controversial late-term procedures, and are the subject of a documentary at the Sundance film festival. "After Tiller," named for physician George Tiller, a prominent practitioner of late-term abortions shot dead by an extremist in 2009, focuses on the few remaining doctors who perform abortions in the third trimester of a pregnancy. The Supreme Court legalized abortion exactly 40 years ago -- on January 22, 1973 -- but granted states the right to limit abortions in the final three months of a pregnancy.

With reference to Clarice Feldman´s article today advising, no, begging, the RNC and Conservatives to seize the language in framing an issue:

Protectors of the Second Amendment are referred to as "gun lovers" to make them sound menacing. Turn about: Supporters of abortion on demand must be referred to as "abortion lovers". Get that term into the argument and see what happens.

FTA: ´It´s not that the doctors don´t know how to do this, but they are afraid.´

Just because you know how to do something doesn´t mean you should.

And they should have some fear. God will not be mocked.

Look up "Kermit Gosnell" and see how things have gone in this industry before, during and after Tiller. There were two reasons for the msm to ignore this horror story: Dr. Gosnell is a "minority" and his clinic puts the lie to guarantees of safe, hygenic and professional abortions.

"We are thrilled. We would cheerfully train more doctors."

Absolute evil. They are SO excited about murdering infants with a knife, and getting others to join them. Regardless of whether you think life begins at conception, third trimester babies survive prematurely now. So clearly, you are murdering infants, not embryos, not some "unborn" non-entity.

The article starts with the statement that "physician" Tiller was shot dead by an "extremist". The same man, should he stop a guy using the same sharp instruments to murder premature newborns in a nursery, would be called a hero. So tell me "Agence France-Presse" what exactly is the difference? No answer?

I´ll go out on a limb. Scott Roeder, Tiller´s killer, apparently had mental issues, and suffered problems. However, he stated that he killed Tiller because infant´s lives were in immediate danger.

That makes him a hero.

No you monster - for example oncologists deal with women who are going through real difficulties. Abortionists take advantage of vulnerable women for money.

The admissions and characterizations are jaw dropping comical if the subject weren´t so profoundly disturbing:

The Supreme Court legalized abortion exactly 40 years ago -- on January 22, 1973 -- but granted states the right to limit abortions in the final three months of a pregnancy.

You heard it from the French press first folks. The Supreme Court legalizes things and grants rights to the States. Yeah, that´s how it works in in the liberal mind.

Anybody know where this murderer is buried? Wouldn´t want to miss the chance to water the flowers on his grave if given the chance.

As an acquaintence said , if death comes when the heart stops beating, then life begins when the heart starts beating, which is only days after conception. There is life at conception as well because if there wasn´t, then the fertilization would never take place.

This whole idea of late-term abortions is nothing more than the taking of human life when it might be viable outside the womb. Those who engage in it are murderers, pure and simple.

It says something very telling about those who would support it, and our nation as a whole being condemned for allowing it to exist.

The saddest part is that abortion is a thriving business and next to free sexual relationships without any consequences is the ´unholy grail´ of liberal politics, right up there with socialism.

Does this film show how nasty most abortion clinics are? I wouldn´t take a dog to the ones I´ve seen. They are dingy and dirty looking. They are usually located in ethnic neighborhoods. I´m sure this documentary doesn´t mention Kermit Gosnell´s collection of baby feet in jars, or the biohazard bags stacked on top of each other, leaking.

If these brave doctors want a voice, I want them to appear on national television and describe what they do.

Nice try, frog. First, there are at least 30 million fewer tax payers in the US today because they were aborted 20-40 years ago. Second, every one of those children who were aborted would have been adopted. How do I know this? I´m and adoptive mother. The year we adopted our daughter ( 1990 ) there were 50,000 adoptions in the US. for every couple who were lucky enough to get one of those children, there were 250 couples who could not get a child. Do the math.

Once upon a time I thought children who were not aborted would be given up for adoption. Then I worked with young pregnant women, while abortion was considered distasteful, adoption was considered totally, unforgivably immoral. I admire the decision to give a child up for adoption instead of abortion, but I know in the real world that would not happen very often. There would simply be more poorly parented children needing public services, and as is so often pointed out, they would not be paying income taxes.

What has always appalled me about Tiller is that he would regularly receive communion at his ELCA church. They knew what he did for a living and offered him communion? That is disgusting.

With regard to Gosnell, I read the full GJ report. I was staggered. There was a 15 year old girl helping with abortions. One baby who was born alive was played with by an assistant who then finished by slitting the baby´s throat. This happens in America. I can hardly believe what we´ve become as a nation. It´s so foul - environmentalists are always worried about pollution - what of the pollution of the soul? What is a humanist´s remedy for that?

#32, I know you are appalled, as we all are, that so many women think abortion is "distasteful" OK but placing the child for adoption is unforgivably "immoral."

And yet, this is an irrational view. It is very much like preferring husband- or wife--murder to divorce.

We can change these attitudes. There should be pervasive artistic portrayals of people valuable to the whole human race --- from Jesus Christ to Johann Sebastian Bach, to Steve Jobs! --- who were adopted; and sensitive support for the birth-mothers who made this spiritually sensitive decision.

The most beautiful thing is to honor and protect your child´s life, even if it means placing him tenderly in someone else´s loving arms.

We don´t know that late term abortions only make up one percent because that is a figure that is supplied to us only by the abortion industry which is notoriously secretive and deceptive. Plus they have a history of perjury in congressional hearings about such matters as was revealed in a case about 15 years ago when the guy that testified admitted later that he lied lied lied. He, of course, suffered no punishment for his lies.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
