The Campaign to Outlaw Abortion
New York Times, by Editors

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 3/30/2013 7:34:51 AM

Anti-abortion groups have been trying to re-impose restrictions on abortion rights for 40 years, but the Legislature and governor of North Dakota have taken this attack on women’s reproductive health and freedom to a shocking new low by passing a bill that they must know perfectly well is unconstitutional by any reading of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision and others since.Under those rulings, full abortion bans are allowable only after fetal viability, which the medical community generally considers to be around 24 weeks into pregnancy. But North Dakota joins a growing list

Comments:
Replace "abortion" with "slavery" and you get a true picture of the outrage. Gosh! Killing babies, oops! Reproductive health must really be important to the Times board.

So far, nine states have acted to defund Planned Parenthood, threatening preventive care relied upon by hundreds of thousands of people.

Why does Planned Parenthood need funding now that Obamacare will pay for all that stuff, and "people" can go elsewhere?

My mother had a friend who was born in Germany prior to WWII. At the time of her delivery, there was a bucket of water beside the bed. When she came into the world, the nurse asked the mother if she wanted the nurse to drown the baby. Germany was in dire straits economically and this practice was common place. Needless to say, my mother´s friend survived, but many others didn´t. That story was told to me in such a way that I understood the tragedy and shame of when a nation not only cannot take care of its young, but turns to slaughter. What a different world we live in today. And how very sad a place it is.

Why post the NYT? It´s not a news site. It´s an elitist left wing pressure group. This "editorial" are just ranting and stomping their "collectivist" feet.. The NYT is well aware that Roe vs. Wade was a reckless and terrible decision. There is no constitutional right to an abortion. This issue is a matter for the States. In meantime the NYT will rant, rave and lie and call everyone that disagrees with them "right-wing" Yawn.

Although I avoid the NYT like the plague, I read the editorial before commenting in order to comply with L-dot guidelines. Sheesh, I don´t know if I´m glad or sad. Roe v. Wade was an awful decision. Kind of like Dred Scott. Under NYT analysis, Dred Scott would still be the law of the land, for no fewer than three times does the NYT tell us that anything contrary to Roe v. Wade is unconstitutional, unconstitutional, unconstitutional, and obviously, therefore, cannot be revisited. (Until I read this editorial, I did not know that ours was a conservative DOMINATED Supreme Court; I guess 5-4 is domination to a liberal). I was amused by two of their statements, however.
First was their unwitting allusion to someone who´s six weeks pregnant needing to get an abortion even though she doesn´t know she´s pregnant (?!), and the irony of ironies that "bad ideas spread fast in this realm."

FTA The campaign goes beyond abortion to the continuing Republican drive in Texas and other states to close down Planned Parenthood clinics that provide critical services like birth control counseling and cancer screenings."

This is a dang lie, and the NYT knows it. Planned Parenthood makes a $350 million profit a year by aborting babies. Their other "services" account for a minimal percentage of their business.

After seeing that video of the Planned Parenthood ghoul in Florida yesterday, I´m surprised the NYT didn´t tout Planned Unparenthood´s "service" of killing babies after babies are born alive.

NYT, so quick to take offense at those who want baby-killings to stop, have no such compunctions when they want to outlaw the second amendment, something that actually is in the Constitution.

Perhaps if there would be more guns, there would be fewer murders of helpless people, stripped of their right to defend themselves, their property and their family with a firearm.

It´s fine to kill a helpless baby in utero, but not fine to kill someone with his finger on the trigger, aiming his gun at you. What is one to do? Talk nice?

Full abortion bans are never allowable under Roe v. Wade, because of the "health of the mother" exception. Ask any staunch "pro-choicer" if they favor more restrictions on third trimester abortions and they will likely say, no.

There has never been a time when doctors were prevented by law from saving the life of a mother when this was deemed necessary. That is a lie perpetrated by the pro-abort faction. If we were to go back to pre-Roe legislation, no woman would have to die because of a (very rare) situation in which the birth would claim her life.

Children are simply a commodity today - they used to be considered a blessing.

NYT wants the entire nation to do as they do and kill more than 50% of the babies conceived by black mothers. We gotta get rid of those black babies. If it´s good enough for New York City, it´s good enough for the rest of the country.

Kill those black babies. Then kill those brown babies. Maybe even kill the poor white trash babies. That´s what the NYT calls for. Eugenics in the spirit of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

Hey, who says there´s never any good news in the New York Times. This is a wonderful piece, and we can hope to see many more like it.

It is interesting that among the "oppressive" laws the editorial cites is one banning "gender selective" abortions. That is, they favor killing your baby because it is the wrong sex. (And that "wrong sex" is female 90 percent of the time, feminist witches.)

You know, it´s very tempting to be like the mainstream GOP these days and begin shedding our Old Testament attitudes in order to be more like the cool kids and get to sit at the cool table in the cafeteria. How sophisticated we are perched above the social issues fray, speaking only about liberty and fiscal responsibility. But I contend that the social issues are about liberty and fiscal responsibility. I say because we refused to take the social issues more seriously we have found ourselves at the threshold of loss of liberty and fiscal ruin.
But hey, we want to get elected, don´t we? Cause that´s what it´s all about.

An unexpected lesson in diversity

America’s top selling non-fiction book has much to teach about Wall Street malfeasance, but it also offers an intriguing perspective on diversity. The hero of Michael Lewis’ “Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt” is Brad Katsuyama, a Canadian-born investment banker for the Royal Bank Canada who transfers to RBC’s New York office. When he gets to the United States, the book explains, Katsuyama not only ultimately uncovers how high frequency trading is corrupting the stock market, he also becomes aware of his minority status for the first time in his life. “In the United States, Brad also noticed, he was expected to

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

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has started, over the past few weeks, to ratchet up talk of a potential presidential run in 2016. If that´s the case, the reaction he received this weekend at a gathering of conservatives in the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire was not what he was looking for. Bush served as a punch line for — of all people — Donald Trump. "You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day," Trump said during his speech at the Freedom Summit, hosted by the conservative groups Citizens United and Americans for Prosperity.

Barbara Bush was right when she pooh-poohed son Jeb´s interest in running for the White House in 2016. Forget political dynasties -- Bushes, Kennedys and, yes, Clintons -- the former first lady told NBC last year. "We´ve had enough Bushes."

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. — With eyes increasingly on him, Jeb Bush signaled on Sunday the kind of campaign he would mount if he runs for president, one arguing against ideological purity tests while challenging party orthodoxy on issues like immigration and education. Even as he sharply criticized President Obama for his handling of foreign affairs and health care, Mr. Bush made clear that he would run against the style of politics that has characterized recent Republican nominating contests. He said he would decide by the end of the year, in part on whether he thinks he could avoid “the vortex of

WASHINGTON -- Inevitably, considering the absence of a clear Republican frontrunner for the 2016 presidential election, the name of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush of the family dynasty has been rushed to the fore. On his record in office and his soft-spoken personal appeal, he would seem a natural to go to the head of a list of only moderately impressive wannabes. But the immediate question is: Do American voters, after a double dose of Bushes, want another one? The fact is that memories of the two George Bush presidencies now set few GOP hearts aflutter.The first George, elected to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
