Pro-Abortion Activists in Texas Chant “Heil Satan!”

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:50 am



Cahnman’s Musings:

It’s been a very interesting day at the Texas State Capitol. Cahnman’s Musings hasn’t been following the hearing. Instead, we’ve been participating in the surrounding events. LetTexasSpeak has been doing a live broadcast from the rotunda where women have been sharing their abortion related testimonies. The pro-abortion crowd has responded with repeated chants of “hail Satan.” It’s taken us all day to get a video recording, but here it is:

And here is the recording:

The Blaze points out:

Obviously, it is much more likely that the abortion supporters were chanting “Hail Satan!” to mock pro-lifers rather than actually hailing Lucifer, but anything is possible.

I think it’s a mistake to assume that true evil always comes in the guise of a frowning or sneering monster. Often, it appears on a laughing face.

if Satan exists, this is how he would seek to spread his message: not through sincere worship of his evil ends, but through mockery of goodness.

  1. a truly bizarre moment…

    it will be interesting to see if this has any effect on “Christians” who also support abortion.

  2. Some of this stuff is so over-the-top I wonder if its genuine. Would people on a mission go Westboro to win hearts and minds?

    I trust nothing at face value anymore.

  3. fetal idolatry is sorta like satanism in how Mr. God says we’re not supposed to have any other gods before him

    but it’s possible to overthink these sorts of things

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  4. True.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  5. Well said, Patterico. The ugliness is astounding. Who will be the first to die at the leftists’ hands?

    BTW I don’t get the last pic. They’re shooting a Nazi officer…?

    Patricia (be0117)

  6. well, since the abortion folks advertized for protestors on the local Graigslists, you have to wonder what sort of people they hired…

    Occutards, for instance, are not known for their appreciation of optics outside their warped world view

    redc1c4 (403dff)

  7. But I’m sure you will agree that’s awfully poor salesmanship, if one’s goal is to persuade others to one’s point of view. Then again, God got a round booing at the DNC.

    I don’t know what’s real anymore.

    Sarahw (b0e533)

  8. fetal idolatry is sorta like satanism

    Not killing children because you value human life is like Satanism? Why do you do this whenever the topic of abortion comes up? Being pro-life is purely about love for other people, particularly people who are powerless. It’s classical liberalism. It’s one thing to disagree, and another to actually display hatred towards people who want to preserve these lives for wholly selfless reasons.

    I have always thought being pro-choice is rooted in a selfish ‘if it feels good right now, do it’ mentality, both in the origin of the child and the disposal of all that potential for the sake of lifestyle. In response all I ever hear in defense of abortion is ‘you want to force rape victims to bear children’. Complete dishonesty. It’s no surprise to me to see this dishonesty manifest so hatefully. Pro choicers have no alternative but to think only in terms of hatred for their opposition. It is not like they can actually rationalize their view and simply express that.

  9. Is it wrong that images of Abu Ghraib popped into my head as I scrolled through these photos?

    Chris (654abf)

  10. I could see dedicated pro-lifers responding to the very same ads, and giving as vigorous a performance as possible. It’s theatre, and war.

    I blame Bush.

    JD (cead21)

  12. This is very effective at changing the focus of discussion from the human life of a 20-week fetus to satan.

    Then again, I do wonder what really motivates those who so passionally want children dead. They are not interested in talking or reasoning. All they want is more severed hands in jars on a shelf. Ultimately, it is all about evil.

    Amphipolis (d3e04f)

  13. Exactly. Jonah Goldberg made a similar point by putting a smiley face on the cover of his book, Liberal Facism.

    Musicman (09b2d3)

  14. Greetings:

    I grew up in the Bronx of the ’50s and ’60s. Back then and there, the good Sisters of Mercy taught us that when it comes to the temptation to sin, Satan almost always has ease or pleasure on his side.

  15. fetal idolatry is sorta like satanism in how Mr. God says we’re not supposed to have any other gods before him

    You might with equal sense accuse anti-lynching activists of “negro idolatry”, or anti-Nazis of “Jewish idolatry”. Or anti-capital-punishment campaigners of “criminal idolatry”. One needn’t worship someone to be opposed to killing them.

  19. if you tolerate the more or less sorta kinda tolerable stuff other people do behind your back you will soon find you have time on your hands to where you don’t have to go to the capitol building downtown and hang out with a bunch of people what are narrowly fixated on this that or the other and instead you can go get tasty torchy’s tacos and enjoy them without people breaking into either hymns or satanic chantings

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  20. How many people were murdered at Abu ghraib. Can you help us out here Chris?? Nearly 400,000 BABIES murdered at Obama’s favorite PLANNED PARENTHOOD last year.

    Gus (694db4)

  21. fetal idolatry?? STRAWMAN.

    Gus (694db4)

  22. people always say STRAWMAN like it’s some horrible awful terrible bad thing

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  23. oh and also I have a question is there an explanation for all the blue shirts the lifeydoodles are wearing or is that just a coincidence you think

    nobody told me about the blue shirts

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  24. I hear a lot of the pro-baby killers talk about wire coat hangers. Do they still make wire coat hangers? Maybe we should just restri t those?

    MSL (11fa66)

  25. Wearing blue was planned by the Stand For Life group, although the pro-choice crowd held a similar event at the Capitol in April — their goal is to turn Texas blue. I read yesterday that pro-choice activists urged their supports to wear blue and co-opt or disrupt the pro-life group’s plan but I can’t find a link today.

    DRJ (a83b8b)

  26. got it that makes sense for to have a nice visual effect I guess

    my new betta is blue his name is enrique for short

    but enrique boo is his full name

    but his nickname is kique boo cause of in colombia and perhaps other places that is the nickname for enrique

    right now enrique lives in a decaf coffee pot but if he makes it to fall I will get him a for reals aquarium for so he has optimal living conditions, which is very pro-life of me

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  27. Mr. Feets – In my neck of the woods straw is mostly a seasonal decoration around Halloween and useless for arguments.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  28. MSL – The little chirren holding up the coat hanger signs were adorable and will make wonderful additions to family picture albums.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  29. I for one, appreciate how the “pro-choice” movement continues to infantilize women, the little dears.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  30. daley-children just mature faster now and are more fully able to make social/political policy decisions for themselves than in days of yore. Why, I was 13 or 14, I think, before I read somewhere that wire hangers were not for hanging up dresses.

    elissa (3eda8a)

  31. @21 How many people were murdered at Abu ghraib. Can you help us out here Chris?? Nearly 400,000 BABIES murdered at Obama’s favorite PLANNED PARENTHOOD last year.

    I don’t know about deaths at the Abu Ghraib facilities, but I think the total war-related deaths in all of Iraq is probably approaching 1m by now (an estimated 650k had been killed as of 2006).

    I also don’t approve of babies being murdered via abortion, so What’s your point?

    Chris (654abf)

  32. elissa – Yes, but the coat hanger poster chirren outside the Texas state house what I saw were more like 4-6 years old. Absolutely precious!

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  33. So you are saying you don’t think 4-6 year olds came up with that all on their own and demanded to go to the rally?

    elissa (3eda8a)

  34. elissa – They might could have. Like you say, kids mature so much faster these days, plus they learn from the adults around them.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  35. I also heard that there were shouts that Mary (as in Mary and Joseph fame) should have had an abortion.

    I think the Alinskyites are just coming out of the closet; sticking to “lucifer” just doesn’t have the general impact as saying satan.

    CS Lewis mentions in the Screwtape Letters that satan is just as happy if people mock his existence in disbelief. Easy pickin’s when you don’t know you have an enemy.

    and feets, the OT seems to universally link idol worship to those who offered babies in sacrfice, not to those who thought it was a bad idea to kill them.
    And your pro abortion rhetoric became unfunny before it even started.
    Some things can be made fun of, but when some other things are made fun of you join the list of the infamous pictured above.

    MD in Philly (3d3f72)

  36. elissa – Maybe you could call it coat hanger idolatry?

  37. I love leftists that still invoke But Bush Chimpy McHitlerBurton as a form of argument.

    JD (a3f19f)

  38. one thing for sure is that mister unhappyfeet is pro-life when it comes to his strawmen—he never aborts them !

    Elephant Stone (6a6f37)

  39. They chanted satan so people would not listen to the women sharing their abortion related testimonies. They want us to talk about satan.

    And yes, I say red herring as if it’s some horrible awful terrible bad thing, as if it’s designed to prevent rational discourse and manipulate people to help facilitate the murder of the next generation.

    We don’t just eat our young. We gorge on them until we are sick.

    Amphipolis (d3e04f)

  40. Chris #32 – please try to keep up, dearie …

    You are quoting the 2006 Grauniad – the planetary Gold Standard for Inaccuracy in Reporting (that frequently cannot even spell its *own* name correctly) – quoting a Lancet “study” which has been debunked many times, and that starts with a photo with the text “The aftermath of a Baghdad bomb attack – a study published in the Lancet estimates that 655,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the war.” – implying that bomb attacks are a result of the war, rather than just being how the various local sects and power groups interact whether they are in a country in that war or not …

    Apart from those details, for you, your comment was remarkably perceptive … it definitely merits a F for F-ort …

    Alastor (e7cb73)

  41. Alastor – Even that inflated Lancet death toll represented a slower death toll than Saddam Hussein was inflicting on his own people, but people don’t want to talk about that in terms of who removing him from power actually saved Iraqi lives. Go figure.

  42. Who will be the first to die at the leftists’ hands?

    Comment by Patricia (be0117) — 7/3/2013 @ 8:38 am

    That’s a very insightful question, Patricia, but considering untold millions have already died at the hands of leftists, I suppose your question would be better framed as, “Who will be the first in this country to die at the leftist’s hands,” in which case another untold legion already have.

    But further, were your question to be framed as, “Who will be the first sentient American to die at the hands of leftists?” I would have to say probably only one.

    Because were that to happen, I’m fairly certain the left would incur the bloody constraint of those they wrongly assumed to be too cowed by the majesty of the same False Prophet “they’ve been waiting for.”

    My Sharia Moor (59f74c)

  43. If you never admit that unborn babies are human, you never have to admit that you were ever helplessly dependent on your mother’s body. Hence you don’t have to acknowledge any debt to your parents for your life, and you can claim to have total liberty.

    Suburbanbanshee (44ac78)

  44. daleyrocks – Yeah in the family photobucket album under the title “missed you by that much” or “the irony of it all”.

    The arguments from illiberals are interesting or maybe stupid is a better word. They argue for abortion saying if it’s not Dr Kermit cheap and dirty, unsanitary coat hangers is a happing in some back alley somewhere. But if you are discussing gun control they reject outright the notion that only law abiding citizens obey the law, pretending these controls will stop the murders. They pretend to care about a few thousand, or a few dozen children, while demanding the right to murder of millions of children every year.

    MSL (5f601f)

  45. Suburbanbanshee – I have nice pictures from the first birthday parties for each of my fetuses, you know with the cake and balloons, the works.

    daleyrocks (bf33e9)

  46. Nobody ever asks an expectant mother, “So when is your fetus or lifeydoodle due ?”

    Elephant Stone (6a6f37)

  47. you know there’s a reason you can’t spell fetish without f-e-t-i-s

    you feel me?

    I know you do.

    it’s cause of they both come from the same middle french cognate which denotes an unhealthy fixation on other people’s bidness and such

    it’s etymology which is the same as science, more or less

    just a little food for thought there heading into the 4-day weekend

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  48. Mr. Feets – You stay out of my uterus and I’ll stay out of yours. You can’t ask for a better deal than that!

    Happy 4th!

  50. mister unhappyfeet, aren’t those French people the ones who introduced the guillotine ? Or something ?

    You have a fetish for middle French root words, and I have a fetish for Shakespeare—his works, not him. He was English.
    And England was like America’s Mother Country.

    One of my favorite lines by Shakespeare appears in Romeo & Juliet, and it goes like this;

    A rose baby by any other name is still a rose baby.

    Elephant Stone (6a6f37)

  51. Happy 4th Mr. daley! Please to enjoy a deviled egg made from Paula Deen’s very own recipe what I found on the internet plus also let’s all of us reflect on what independence day means with respect to independence and stuff and how this relates to the concepts of individual liberty and also personal freedom

    then we can circle back around as they say

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  52. i agree Mr. Stone but the thing about babies is – the vast majority of them – the overwhelming lion’s share actually – they’re none of my bidness

    and I believe that in my heart

    I’m a focus on what the good lord put on my plate and everyone else they have their own crosses to bear

    in fact my understanding is that we all have our crosses to bear

    it’s a thing

    happyfeet (c60db2)

  53. mister unhappyfeet, are you aware that people used to justify slavery by saying it was nobody else’s business ?

  55. @42 You are quoting the 2006 Grauniad – the planetary Gold Standard for Inaccuracy in Reporting (that frequently cannot even spell its *own* name correctly) – quoting a Lancet “study” which has been debunked many times, and that starts with a photo with the text “The aftermath of a Baghdad bomb attack – a study published in the Lancet estimates that 655,000 Iraqis have died as a result of the war.” – implying that bomb attacks are a result of the war, rather than just being how the various local sects and power groups interact whether they are in a country in that war or not …

    So you’re saying that regardless of whether we were ever there trying to liberate Iraq or not, over a million Iraqis would have been killed in the last decade via bomb attacks or other violent activities? Would you say we contributed to that exorbitantly high Iraqi death toll or we diminished it from a much larger potential during our attempt to liberate them from tyranny? Based on current events it’s hard to tell we were ever there in the first place. But at least we have photographic evidence of it, should history ever really wonder.

    peedoffamerican (ee1de0)

  57. Chris – So are you saying you were not aware that Saddam Hussein was engaged in raping and pillaging his own country, the suppression of his opposition and huge number of Iraqi deaths annually before our invasion?

    Are you saying that you are unaware of the trends in Iraqi violence since Obama’s failure to negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement with Maliki, sending the country spiraling backward once again?

  68. Say what you will, the left has no match when it comes to throwing a giant conniption fit guaranteed to attract the attention of the media.

But I’ll bet not a one of them can make a rational and cogent argument for why we should arbitrarily destroy a 25-week-old child in the womb.

    There are other people it should be bothering instead, in their gluteus.

    The problem is that some on the left are so over the top it is hard to take them seriously, but they are serious and they blindly take each other seriously.

  88. Really, praising satan in a public rally is supposed to win friends for your side?

    A long time ago I read a theory that an evil person cannot be truly intelligent because he has to shut down part of his mind to entertain the thoughts he entertains and to live with the actions he takes.

    nk (875f57)

  89. Well, I guess it might depend on whether your definition of “intelligence” includes “wisdom” or not.

    In the context of discussing the devil, there is the big issue of whether or not one can be both intelligent and yet deceived.

    Then again, there is “Thinking they were wise, they became fools…”

    I think that is pretty accurate of the above. I bet they thought they were pretty clever in their tactics, but even a nonreligious person can judge them to be actually quite foolish.

  90. “Those arrogant old men on Capitol Hill have no right to tell a woman what choices to make regarding her body.”

    Claire – Oh dear. I thought those legislators in in the Texas Capitol were writing laws and making women’s “health care” safer in Texas, but now I am told they are telling a woman what choices to make regarding her body. I completely missed that!

    Are they telling her not to have sex?
    Are they telling not to have sex without contraception?
    Are they telling her she should have no right to decide to keep a clump of cells if she becomes pregnant?
    Are they telling her she has no right to find a safe, clean qualified health care provider if the woman elects to rid herself of an unwanted clump of cells?

    Claire, what choices are being forced on the woman?

  93. I’m learning Florida law from the Zimmerman case. Florida classifies partial birth abortion as homicide, unless the life of the mother is endangered and even then life-saving measures must be taken to preserve the life of the baby, but with no criminal penalties for the mother. I don’t know the details of the Texas law. I hope it’s something similar.

  94. Student Compares Unborn Baby to Tapeworm
    Posted on January 27, 2013 by Sarah

    “If anything, a fetus is merely a parasitical creature that uses the mother as its host.Tapeworms are parasites that house themselves in the intestinal tracts of humans, feeding off the food the host consumes. Comparatively, a fetus is little more than a tapeworm. It is quite common for humans to annihilate parasites with medications or toxins, so why not allow for fetuses to suffer the same fate?”

    – [President of the United States] teach your daughters values and morals and if that fails just encourage them to kill their baby

    Comment by Claire Boston (4cb4a0) — 7/3/2013 @ 6:54 pm

    See Claire, that’s the problem with arrogant people like you. It’s not her body that she is doing something to! It is a completely separate human individual distinguishable by its own DNA. And as for her choices, that came when she chose to spread her legs with the knowledge that it leads to the possibility of conception. It is not a valid choice to extinguish an innocent life in order to avoid responsibility for your selfish and irresponsible behavior!

    You ever wonder what the little tykes would say to their mommy’s if someone explained to them what abortion is, and that is what mommy wants to be able to do with your little unborn brother or sister? They would probably be beating mommy’s ass with those obnoxious signs that mommy made them carry.

    peedoffamerican (a84075)

  98. that came when she chose to spread her legs

    this is exactly right – most women what have abortions are ignorant sluts

    (you can tell cause of how they’re usually named desiree or christal or lexxus)

    except – and this is important – except for sometimes when god blesses a womens with a rape baby

    then it’s not necessarily all her fault

    Comment by happyfeet (8ce051) — 7/3/2013 @ 9:22 pm

    Yeah that really happens a lot doesn’t it? EXCEPT THIS IS IMPORTANT, victims of rape account for less than .05% of performed abortions. Besides which, why do you want to kill the innocent baby? It didn’t rape anybody!

    peedoffamerican (a84075)

  100. abortions over 20 weeks account for way less than 5% of all abortions and a lot of those are cause of fetal abnormalities and such

    so statistically that part of the texas law isn’t gonna do very much at all

    but that doesn’t make a woman blessed with a rape baby any less blessed ask Santorum he’ll tell you

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  101. Not 5%! I made a mistake in typing and listed it as 0.05%. It is actually somewhere around 0.5%, and that is including victims of rape by incest! The latest statistics I can find reported approx 86,000 rapes in 1 year. The research estimates for a woman getting pregnant with one sexual encounter or incidence of rape is 5%. So if 86,000 women per year are raped, and 5% conceive = approx 4300, and if (big if) they all decide to abort that would be 0.005 or 0.5% of 860,000 abortions in a year.

    peedoffamerican (a84075)

  102. Furthermore, that means that 99.5% of abortions or approx 855,700 abortions are for birth control otherwise known as convenience abortions.

    Yep you got one thing right, failamerica. And it is those that support abortion that is one of the causes for it to be so! You even hint at it when you say, “truth what we hold to be self-evident”, BUT you are not understanding it! First among the three rights listed is the right to LIFE! And without that Life, the other two rights cannot exist.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness

    It is the duty of the government to protect its citizens from all threats, both foreign and domestic. That unborn baby in truth is a future citizen and future of this country! Almost 50 million babies have been aborted since Roe v Wade. That’s 5 followed by 7 zeros, or 50,000,000. About one-sixth of the people that are living citizens at this time.

    We have aborted our future as a nation. It is a Travesty! And it is an Injustice! It is Barbaric as Hell! We have failed to protect the most vulnerable among us, all for the sake of convenience! Well, it is pretty damn inconvenient to me and to the unborn babies themselves.

    That evil man, Hitler, has nothing on us as a nation. In fact, compared to doctors, who take an oath to “First do no harm”, Hitler was just a piker. This country has participated in another Holocaust that is 8 and 1/3 times greater. Murdering helpless babies in the womb, not in self-defense, not as enemy soldiers in war, not even as criminals, but for convenience.

    Here’s a brief description of that “clump of cells” that these monsters want to be able to kill at 20 weeks:

    How your baby’s growing:

    Your baby weighs about 10 1/2 ounces now. He’s also around 6 1/2 inches long from head to bottom and about 10 inches from head to heel — about the size of a banana. (For the first 20 weeks, when a baby’s legs are curled up against his torso and hard to measure, measurements are taken from the top of his head to his bottom — the “crown to rump” measurement. After 20 weeks, he’s measured from head to toe.)

    He’s swallowing more these days, which is good practice for his digestive system. He’s also producing meconium, a black, sticky by-product of digestion. This gooey substance will accumulate in his bowels, and you’ll see it in his first soiled diaper (some babies pass meconium in the womb or during delivery).

    Doesn’t sound like just a clump of cells, or a tapeworm to me! Does this look like a clump of cells? http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/archive/00834/SNN2915AN-380_834593a.jpg

    How about now? http://img.thesun.co.uk/multimedia/archive/00834/SNN2915DN–682_834625a.jpg

    Comment by peedoffamerican (04dfe5) — 7/4/2013 @ 12:24 am

    Indeed.

    In some ways it seems to be like Nazi Germany in that even those of us opposing abortion (at least myself, anyway) are not more appalled by it and desperate to end it, not by law but by other actions such as begging expectant mothers to deliver their baby with the promise we will raise him/her instead.
    In that sense we are like German citizens who knew something was wrong in the death camps but simply shrugged their shoulders, thought, “What can I do about it anyway?” and went on living their own life.

And yes, it has shades of the Cultural Revolution with a larger side order of Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. But why her? It clearly was a decision to mount a campaign against this woman–by somebody with quite a bit of power. I’m sure her white southern heritage is part of it but…..

    elissa (18e70c)

  113. Often I hear the pro-abortion argument of, but nobody wants the child and just think how crappy their life will be because they are unwanted or growing up in an orphanage. I have family members and some friends that were orphans, they not only survived despite having a rough time growing up, they thrived in the end. I am not sure I can properly articulate this, but adversity often gives a person a much better character. We celebrate people who overcome great odds not people who never faced opposition.

    There was a story recently about an old woman from the LA area that was raped back in ‘20’s or ‘30’s and became pregnant. She gave that child up for adoption because she could not properly care for her child. Recently they were re-united. Turns out her daughter who was conceived through a hideous act not only thrived but her children thrived even more, one of her sons today is an astronaut. It is sad to imagine, but if that happened today the outcome would not be the same. I wonder how many of these great people we will never know because their lives were denied based upon another’s right?

    Happy 4th to everyone.

    Milhouse (3d0df0)

  121. It is possible to oppose abortion on moral grounds, and still adamantly oppose government oversight and control of the decision. Government should keep its nose out of our private lives.

    So if you smother your children in their beds or drown them in the bath it’s none of the government’s business, right? If you rape someone in private the government should keep its nose out. Tell me, when does something become the government’s business. And what is government for, anyway, if not to protect people from other people’s violence? In any case, when you go for an abortion at a clinic it’s by definition not private any more.

    Those arrogant old men on Capitol Hill have no right to tell a woman what choices to make regarding her own body.

    What has their sex or age got to do with it? Do you also think white legislators have no right to make laws for black people, and vice versa?

    Nobody has the right to tell people what to do to their own bodies. But they do have the right to tell people what choices to make regarding other people’s bodies, especially those of helpless babies.

    Milhouse (3d0df0)

  122. Those arrogant old men on Capitol Hill

    1. The Texas Capitol is not on a hill.

    2. The legislators include plenty who are humble, young, female, or all three.

    Milhouse (3d0df0)

  123. i just wish people were more focused on less regulatings and less of this idea that the purpose of government is to forcibly circumscribe the behavior of people what think differently

    Then what exactly is the purpose of government, feets? If it’s not to forcibly circumscribe the behavior of people what think it’s OK to mug old ladies or rape young ones or kidnap people or kill them dead, then really what’s it good for? Nothing.

    Milhouse (3d0df0)

  124. Often I hear the pro-abortion argument of, but nobody wants the child and just think how crappy their life will be because they are unwanted or growing up in an orphanage.

    If that were a valid argument, then the same should apply to abandoned babies whom nobody wants to adopt. Let’s say, give it a year, and if after a year nobody has shown any interest in the baby, put it down. Why not? Isn’t it a kindness to spare it a crappy life? For that matter, why limit it to babies? Tell the kids in foster care that if they don’t get adopted and they don’t like their crappy life, they can get aborted instead.

    Um, have you not noticed that he’s actually being very successful in that very task? Unless you’re using “respectable” in some private way.

  131. yes you have to secure basic rights Mr. Milhouse and then get government out of the way for men to prosper

    sure you can have a cowardly inept corrupt government like our one

    but yeah if you want a respectable government you have to be living in a society what privileges the fostering of economic opportunity over and above the narrow agendas of religious zealots

    it’s a thing

    Supporters Chant “Free Jahar” as Boston Marathon Bomber Is Led Into Court

    This is why I think the left is actually insane.

    It’s not that the left broadly supports Jahar or anything. They don’t.

    But the left, broadly, does have a pathological urge towards evil, or what they’d call Enlightened Contrarianism, or a thoughtful repudiation of conventional morality.

    The trouble with such kneejerk contrarianism is that when the dominant position is also right and moral (which it tends to be in most cases, but not all), those who have a psychological need to oppose, oppose the masses, oppose whatever, oppose simply to cry out I exist, are forced into reflexively taking the position opposite of right and good, which is, of course, wrong and evil.

    Probably not what’s going on there, though. This is probably more the people beinmg prosecutred are innocent trope, than anything else.

  138. I understand people, especially liberals, who fear any changes to abortion law might undermine the right to an abortion. They fear the incremental approach because that’s how many liberals undermine values conservatives hold dear.

    But I don’t understand why anyone would oppose changes like this:

    Dewhurst hails the addition of regulations that require abortion clinics to meet the same state standards as all other ambulatory surgical centers. That includes, Dewhurst reminds us, doorways that can fit gurneys, an adequate blood supply in case of unexpected hemorrhaging, and a backup generator in case power goes out in the middle of an abortion, as well as other standards of hygiene and practice. Existing clinics will have until September 2014 to make the construction changes, which Dewhurst believes to be reasonable time frame. “A year is plenty [of] time for these facilities to go ahead and make their changes,” Dewhurst says. “If they’re not going to upgrade their abortion [clinics] to put them at the standard of care, as I said, where you have your child’s tonsils out or cataract surgery, then they don’t deserve to be open.”

    happyfeet (8ce051)

  141. The other day I came across this really great takedown of the abortion enthusiasts who are going off their collective nut over this law.

    http://nakeddc.com/2013/07/11/texas-dude-says-guys-wont-have-sex-anymore-if-abortion-laws-pass/

    The terrible, horrible, no good, very bad Texas law that everyone is freaking the f*** out about basically moves the last possible date at which a pregnant woman can obtain an abortion from 24 weeks, where babies can be born alive and survive, to 20 weeks, before the generally-accepted point of viability. Let’s just hang on to that for a second. If that seems straightforward, even pro-science to you, you’re not alone: if a kid can survive outside the womb, than it’s kind of hard to make the argument that they are an inhuman parasite. But, whatever. This is abortion legislation, so the rules are made up and the points don’t matter. What matters is, we’re all like, ten Texas legislators away from starring in our own post-apocalyptic Margaret Atwood novel, where us poor folk are chained to beds and forced to have children against our will. Never mind that by the time the Texas deadline rolls around you’re more than four months pregnant, you’re an idiot who simply can’t make up her puny female mind about being a parent, and need to have available a procedure that most of the world (except Canada!) views as barbaric…

    Oh, and then there’s the part about HB2 shutting down abortion clinics that can’t adhere to the same cleanliness and operation standards as a veterinary office, which, let’s just say, if they aren’t already, women aren’t getting good care. Because they aren’t getting the same standard of care as your dog. And if that shuts a couple of them down, I’m sure no one is going to miss them. Anyway, when one argument fails to convince legions of Americans that allowing late-term abortions to be performed on fetuses capable of living outside the womb, another more ridiculous one manages to take it’s place. So where “Hail Satan” could not get the point across, you have Ben Sherman warning the male residents of Texas that they will not get laid if women can’t get a late-term abortion at six months of pregnancy.

    That’s right, gentlemen. Abortion is the only thing standing between you and your next piece of…

    It’s a good read.
