Good News for Unborn Americans

Planned Parenthood suffered a 28% drop in private donations last year. And, following Texas’ decision to yank a considerable amount of its taxpayer funding, Planned Parenthood has had a number of closing and cut backs.

The PP abortuary in Sherman, in the northern part of the state, has already closed as a direct result of the cut in funding. In Hidalgo County, PP said it will be closing four of its centers and laying off half of its staff.  In Waco, three centers are closed and the remaining one site will have only one nurse practitioners, down from three.

PP claims the government cuts will deny women access to some non-abortion health care, but that’s a lie. Thousands of other agencies and medical offices are located throughout the state that provide the same or better quality health care for women without doing abortions.

For example, in Waco, the Texas legislature did not remove women’s health care funding, but switched funding from Planned Parenthood to Waco’s Family Health Center which provides family planning and other health care services, but does not do abortions.

And it’s not just Texas! Planned Parenthood is no longer doing abortions at some of its Arizona locations because it refuses to follow new pro-life laws enacted in that state. And a Planned Parenthood abortion referral center in Northeast Ohio will be closing due to financial difficulties.

It’s not even just Planned Parenthood! An abortion center in Pensacola, Florida and a chain of abortion centers in California have reportedly shut down. And earlier this year, two Pennsylvania abortion clinics were closed by state officials and the owner decided to retire rather than clean them up.

Iowa bashing


Click on graphic to embiggen.

The Iowa caucuses always do a wonderful job of bringing out the sneering disdain that progressives have for Middle America.

In December 2011, University of Iowa journalism professor and UC-Berekley grad Stephen Bloom wrote an essay entitled “Observations From 20 Years of Iowa Life” for The Atlantic, that provoked outrage from many Iowans, who were offended by Bloom’s negative tone, broad stereotypes, and factual errors.

Michelle Malkin summed up the article as “a 6,000-word jeremiad, littered with factual errors, against his home state’s residents. The abridged version:

Raaaaaaaacists! Hicks! Christians! Argggh!”

Bloom also once wrote a book — Postville: A Clash of Cultures in Heartland America — that was heavily criticized by Jewish leaders for having an anti-religious bias.

According to Bloom,

“Those who stay in rural Iowa are often the elderly waiting to die.”

The median age in Iowa is 38; nationally, it’s 36.7.

The Hispanic News website joined in the stereotyped bashing:

“In Diverse and Urban Nation, Time to Kick Iowa White, Racist Farmers to Curb.”

NBC Nightly News chimed in, saying Iowa is:

“Too white, too evangelical, too rural.”

Census statistics show that the majority of Iowans are urban, not rural. Out of a population of 3 million people statewide, some 90,000 (3%) are farming families.

But who gives a crap about facts when there are racial and class wars to incite?

According to Bloom, the Iowans who aren’t toothless droolers with one foot in the grave are:

“(a)n assortment of waste-toids and meth addicts with pale skin and rotted teeth or those who quixotically believe, like Little Orphan Annie, that ‘the sun will come out tomorrow.'”

Bloom also wrote about his home state:

“The food is awful, the people are stout, and a lot of them smoke.”

One is forced to ponder why Bloom lives in Iowa.

Once upon a time (1992), he was press secretary and speechwriter for the Democratic Mayor of that Progressive Mecca, San Francisco.

And for a while, he got to be a visiting scholar at Columbia.

Perhaps the fact that he didn’t make good on either coast has something to do with why he’s so bitter about the one state where someone was willing to hire him.

House of Prayer

By Wanda Priddy, Pearcy, Arkansas

All I learned about prayer I learned at 218 Maylott Street. That was where I grew up, raised by my grandma, Mama.

I would lie in bed at night listening to Mama pray for me. “Lord, let Wanda know you are always with her.” Those comforting words stayed with me after I moved out.

It was the comfort I desperately sought at my youngest son Ronnie’s hospital bedside. He was very ill and not expected to make it through the night.

If only someone would pray for Ronnie the way Mama used to pray for me, I thought, holding his hand.

That evening a nurse walked in, one I’d never seen before. I looked up into her gentle hazel eyes, her calm presence filling the room. “I felt I needed to come here,” she said. “Would it be all right if I pray for you?”

“Of course,” I said, surprised. No other nurse had offered to do that for us. It was exactly what I’d wanted!

“Lord, be with this family tonight. Let them know you are always with them,” she said. Her words soothed me just the way Mama’s prayers had all those years ago. Then she slipped out of the room. A little while later Ronnie passed away peacefully.

After Ronnie’s funeral, I wanted to find the nurse to thank her for the comfort she brought to me. But no one seemed to know who she was. I kept searching for months, to no avail.

One morning I ran into a friend at the little dollar store in my neighborhood. I told her about the nurse who had prayed for my son. A clerk standing nearby spoke up. “I couldn’t help but overhear,” she said. “The person you described sounds just like a lady who worked here before she became a nurse. I’ll get her number for you.”

Could it really be the same woman? The minute I got into my car, I dialed the number. A woman answered. I told her who I was, and asked if she was the one who had prayed with me.

“That was me,” she confirmed.

“Thank you for the comfort you gave me,” I said. “Where do you live? I’d love to send you a little something.”

“Two-eighteen Maylott Street,” she said.

I almost dropped the phone. Mama’s house—a house still full of prayer.

A NOSTALGIC OBAMA USES WEBCAST TO RALLY HIS IOWA ROOTS

This man’s resentment over not being the center of attention constantly borders on the pathological.Remember he tried to call a joint session of Congress to talk about nothing to interrupt the first Republican debate? He has a sick need to insert himself into every conversation.Too bad there is no substance to him.

NEWT TO RUN FULL PAGE AD AGAINST ROMNEY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE

I think Newt truly dislikes Mittens because he’s the only one who can fund himself.40% of the negative ads in Iowa were against Gingrich and paid for by Romney.

OBAMA TO RECESS APPOINT CONSUMER BUREAU CHIEF

According to House rules and that darn Constitution,he can’t do this while Congress is in session.The GOP has been having sessions every third day so they are not legally in recess.That doesn’t matter a whit to this assclown.Won’t do what I want?Screw you,I’ll do it anyway.Try to stop me.

SNUFFLEUPAGUS:ROMNEY’S REASSURING OF CONSERVATIVES WILL ‘TURN OFF’ MODERATES
I was flipping through channels last night and accidentally landed on MSLSD for about 15 seconds. Rev. Tarbaby and Butch Madcow were on the panel. Rev. was chirping about the farther right Romney went the more moderates and independents would be drawn to Bozo. Sorry,Al. That dog won’t hunt. Independents are fleeing the plantation master in droves. Better get your vote fraud machine fired up–you’re gonna need it.
