Kermit Gosnell and Reproductive Care
New York Times, by Andrew Rosenthal

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/16/2013 1:13:53 AM

What does the trial of a Philadelphia doctor who is accused of performing illegal late-term abortions by inducing labor and then killing the fetuses have to do with the debate over legal abortion? Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said today that the Kermit Gosnell trial proves that federal funds should not be used for abortions — an especially odd conclusion to draw given that riders attached to appropriation bills already prohibit the use of federal funds for abortions, except in cases of rape or incest. (Snip) But the effort to use this case to “prove” that abortion is wrong, is wrongheaded.

Comments:
Finally, the "old-grey lady" puts down her coffee and comments, in yet another sanitized "editorial" about Kermit Gosnell. Their conclusion, the anti-abortion "forces" are using this to restrict women’s access to reproductive health services. Can´t make this up.

The last NY Times news article was: "Abortion Doctor’s Murder Trial Opens" [by John Hurdle, Published: March 18, 2013]. Oh, and at the very bottom was this: "A version of this article appeared in print on March 19, 2013, on page A17 of the New York edition with the headline: Abortion Doctor Goes on Trial for Murder." No front page.

You can never ´prove´ anything to a statist because they accept no authority higher than their own genitals. To the progs, there is no such thing as a moral authority other than their own twisted desires.

Little known and certainly NOT acknowledged is that the NYTimes employs the son of very well-known Manhattan abortionist. The writer is Wm. K. Rashbaum, Jr. He wrote his father´s obituary some years back. I´d think that would have much to do with the lack of coverage at least at the NYT, on top of their very liberal bias already firmly entrenched.

Perhaps Rosenthal should look at Obe´s budget and the promise of Obamacare to supply free abortions except to us the taxpayers who will foot the bill.
The argument that Gosnell was providing abortion relief for the poor can certainly be a bad one because he was drawing around 10,000 a might and millions a year.
It is more probable the women were well aware that they had been in some lala land until it was too late to obtain a legal abortion. They were just as criminal as Gosnell except the teen who was forced to complete it after she tried to back out.
All my tears are for the babies and if the woman´s life is aborted too they chose their path.
Too bad a dad isn´t allowed a choice and many men are left to grieve a lost child they would have kept and raised.

The Infanticide Lobby stands up for the Infanticide President and the Infanticide Party.

Slaughtering babies is perfectly acceptable, so long as you call them "fetuses" and carve them up in the womb, or immediately after they leave the womb, or, you know, whatever Planned Parenthood says is okay....

These people want to lecture US on human decency? Go straight to hell.

It´s horsecrap to try and sanitize abortion under "reproductive care".In other words abortion are fine as long as the doctor is humane about it.These same people line up in support of death row inmates accused of heinious crimes,saying execution methods aren´t humane.

Their logic is impeccable.

Killing live children who are born is ok
Killing live children in the womb is ok

Anything that interferes with this practice is not.

These are not human - the editors, not the children

U.S. Seems Unlikely to Accept
That Rights Treaty Applies

New York Times, by Charlie Savage    Original Article

Washington - In 1995, Conrad Harper, the Clinton administration’s top State Department lawyer, appeared before a United Nations panel in Geneva to discuss American compliance with a global Bill of Rights-style treaty the Senate had recently ratified, and he was asked a pointed question: Did the United States believe it applied outside its borders? Mr. Harper returned two days later and delivered an answer: American officials, he said, had no obligations under the rights accord when operating abroad. The Bush administration would amplify that claim after the Sept. 11 attacks — and extend it to another United Nations

Kiev, Ukraine — Over the past two weeks, residents of Kiev have lived through its bloodiest conflict since the Second World War, watched their reviled president flee and a new, provisional team take charge, seen Russian troops take control of part of the country, and heard Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, assert his right to take further military action. Yet the Ukrainian capital is calm. (Snip) This revolution may yet be eaten by its own incompetence or by infighting. A presidential election is scheduled for May, and the race, negative campaigning and all, has quietly begun. The oligarchs, some of whom have cannily been

Saudi Arabia names Muslim Brotherhood,

Riyagh, Saudi Arabia – Saudi Arabia identified the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist group along with al Qaeda and others Friday, warning those who join them or support them they could face five to 30 years in prison. A Saudi Interior Ministry statement said King Abdullah approved the findings of a committee entrusted with identifying extremist groups referred to in a royal decree earlier last month. The decree punishes those who fight in conflicts outside the kingdom or join extremist groups or support them. The king´s decree followed the kingdom enacting a sweeping new counterterrorism law that targets virtually any criticism

Moscow & Simferopol, Ukraine - President Vladimir Putin rebuffed a warning from U.S. President Barack Obama over Moscow´s military intervention in Crimea, saying on Friday that Russia could not ignore calls for help from Russian speakers in Ukraine. After an hour-long telephone call, Putin said in a statement that Moscow and Washington were still far apart on the situation in the former Soviet republic, where he said the new authorities had taken "absolutely illegitimate decisions on the eastern, southeastern and Crimea regions. "Russia cannot ignore calls for help and it acts accordingly, in full compliance with international law,"

Suspected Russian spyware
Turla targets Europe, U.S.

London & Boston - A sophisticated piece of spyware has been quietly infecting hundreds of government computers across Europe and the United States in one of the most complex cyber espionage programs uncovered to date. Several security researchers and Western intelligence officers say they believe the malware, widely known as Turla, is the work of the Russian government and linked to the same software used to launch a massive breach on the U.S. military uncovered in 2008. Those assessments were based on analysis of tactics employed by hackers, along with technical indicators and the victims they targeted. "It is sophisticated

Ukrainian security officials are complaining that unknown attackers are interfering with the mobile phone services of members of Ukraine´s parliament, making difficult political decisions about what to do about Russia´s incursion last week into Crimea that much harder. The head of Ukraine´s security service said on Tuesday, "I confirm that an IP-telephonic attack is underway on mobile phones of members of Ukrainian parliament for the second day in row." This is reminiscent of the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks on Georgia that preceded Russia´s invasion of the country in August 2008. The attacks shut down several

Russia Calls In $2 Billion Gas

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 3/7/2014 11:00:01 AM     Post Reply
Russia said Ukraine must pay off almost $2 billion it owes it for natural gas by today and signaled it may cut supplies, ratcheting up the pressure on its cash-strapped neighbor as the two nations scrap over the future of the Black Sea Crimea region. Ukraine hasn’t made its February fuel payment and owes Russia $1.89 billion, according to gas export monopoly OAO Gazprom (OGZD), which halted supplies to Ukraine five years ago amid a pricing dispute, curbing flows to Europe. Earlier, lawmakers in Moscow said they’d accept the results of a March 16 referendum on Crimea joining Russia as Ukrainian Prime Minister

The Navy has sent a guided-missile destroyer war ship to the Black Sea as part of a training exercise scheduled before the crisis in Ukraine unfolded. The USS Truxtun passed the Dardanelles strait earlier today on its way to the Black Sea amid heightened tension over the crisis in Ukraine and reports that Russia has now 30,000 troops in Crimea. The Pentagon says six US F-15 fighter jets have arrived in Lithuania to bolster air patrols over the Baltics. The fighter jets and 60 US military personnel landed at Siauliai Air Base in Lithuania, adding to the four F-15s and 150 troops already there to do the air patrol mission.

Moscow - Russia on Thursday dismissed as "primitive distortion of reality", cynicism and double standards a U.S. Department of State fact sheet that called President Vladimir Putin´s comments on the crisis in Ukraine false. Moscow and the West are locked in a Cold War-style tug-of-war over Ukraine, where a regional parliament in Crimea on Thursday voted to join Russia after a pro-Western popular revolt in Kiev toppled a Moscow-backed president. With the document titled "President Putin´s Fiction: 10 False Claims About Ukraine", Washington has dropped diplomatic niceties and all but accused Moscow of lying about events in Ukraine.

In a move that surprised even his most cynical critics, Gov. Corbett on Wednesday night forestalled an estimated $3 billion in cuts to food stamps in the state over the next 10 years. By doing so, Corbett became the first Republican governor in the country to prevent the cuts ordered by Congress, which is looking to slash $8.6 billion over the next decade to the food-stamp program, now called SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program). The governor´s decision will preserve benefits for 400,000 Pennsylvania households slated to lose a monthly average of $60 to $65 each in benefits, amounting to $300 million a year,

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat — amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said Issa should apologize on the House floor. “The American people have the right to expect that their elected leaders be held to the

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares? Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

McCain said he spoke to Cruz about the comments and it was “cordial” but he took specific offense at the remarks concerning Dole. “He can say what he wants to about me and he can say anything he wants to about Mitt,” McCain said,

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers.
