Gay Baker To Gays: Stop Being Bullies Just So You Can Have Your Cake And It Eat It Too

Why not patronize the business that actually wants your business? Because it’s not about business. Jesse, the gay baker, makes the case:

Hi guys, my name is Jesse and I bake wedding cakes for a living, and I cannot tell you how disgusted I am with my fellow gay and lesbian community — that they would stoop so low as to force someone to bake a cake for them who simply doesn’t agree with them,” Bartholomew said. “And before you can go and blame me and say that they have to — no, they don’t have to. They don’t have to bake a cake for you.”

Are you stupid? That is your personal piece of your wedding. Your guests eat that,” he said. “That cake is involved in your photos. That cake is taken in your mouth, and you eat it in your stomach.”

Bartholomew went on to accuse some of bulling — and worse.

“There’s no other bakers out there?” he rhetorically asked. “It’s plain and simple: you are bullying someone, you are forcing someone, you are being a Nazi and forcing someone to bake a damn wedding cake for you when there are hundreds of other gays and lesbians that would gladly have your business. Shame on you.”

New Planned Parenthood Video: Using “Less Crunchy Techniques” Means More Intact Parts To Sell And Then Medical Director Can Finally Get That Lamborghini She Really Wants

Coming on the heels of the harrowing video involving Obama adviser, Deborah Nucatola, the Center for Medical Progress has posted another Planned Parenthood video wherein Mary Gatter, Medical director at Planned Parenthood Pasadena and San Gabriel Valley in California, discusses selling fetal baby parts with buyers. The Center for Medical Progress says that they will release a new video every week.

In the video, Gatter can be seen discussing the price for aborted baby parts with buyers, stating the prices for baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable.

Further:

She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.

The video shows Gatter haggling over payments for intact fetal specimens and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to get more intact body parts.

The discussion then turns to monetary compensation:

Actors posing as buyers ask Gatter, “What would you expect for intact [fetal] tissue?

“Well, why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying!” Gatter replies.

Gatter continues: “You know, in negotiations whoever throws out the figure first is at a loss, right?” She explains, “I just don’t want to lowball,” before suggesting, “$75 a specimen.”

Gatter twice recites Planned Parenthood messaging on fetal tissue collection, “We’re not in it for the money,” and “The money is not the important thing,” but she immediately qualifies each statement with, respectively, “But what were you thinking of?” and, “But it has to be big enough that it’s worthwhile for me.”

Gatter also admits that in prior fetal tissue deals, Planned Parenthood received payment in spite of incurring no cost: “It was logistically very easy for us, we didn’t have to do anything. So there was compensation for this.” She accepts a higher price of $100 per specimen understanding that it will be only for high-quality fetal organs: “Now, this is for tissue that you actually take, not just tissue that someone volunteers and you can’t find anything, right?”

For Gatter and Planned Parenthood, it’s all about the money:

By the lunch’s end, Gatter suggests $100 per specimen is not enough and concludes, “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

Gatter also offers to ask the doctor performing the abortions whether he would modify the method used to procure more intact tissue. (Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection 42 U.S.C. 289g-1)

Full uncut hour-long video:

It’s all about ultra-slick rides and money made on the backs of babies. Literally.
