A liberal is someone who

A liberal is someone who

Lena Dunham’s “Republican rapist” turns out to be neither.

“The genuine victims of sexual violence should be horrified by their supposed allies who would profit from their abuse by falsely claiming to have shared in it.”

2014 Year End Abortion Report

2014 Surgical abortion clinics closed since 1991

2014_12 31 Abortion centers closed

Net change in surgical abortion clinics: 40 fewer than at the end of 2014.

  • -47 surgical clinics closed permanently.
  •  -8 clinics stopped doing surgical abortions.
  • +15 abortion facilities either opened or added surgical abortions.
  • (13 surgical facilities closed, then reopened, after complying with health safety standards.)

Net change in medication abortion clinics: None.

  • 13 clinics providing medication abortion shut permanently.
  • 13 existing clinics added medication abortions.

Primary reasons for reduction:

  • The enactment and enforcement of new state laws.
  • Increased reporting by pro-life activists of incompetent and/or criminal behavior committed by abortionists.
  • Financial struggles within the abortion cartel due to decreased demand for abortions.
  • The retirement of abortionists who are not replaced.

739 abortion clinics remain in the U.S.

  • 551 perform surgical abortions.
  • 188 only do medication abortions.

Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, says, “The only things that are preventing total collapse are court injunctions that are blocking several state abortion safety laws from being enforced. Once those laws clear the courts, we expect to see even more dangerous abortion facilities close. This is great news for women and babies because when abortion clinics close, lives are saved.”

“As new states laws add safety standards for surgical abortions, we are seeing the beginnings of a new trend. Abortion providers who cannot or will not comply with the higher standards have, in some cases, dropped surgical abortions in favor of medical abortions so they did not have to become licensed,” said Newman. “This allows incompetent abortionists to continue exploiting women for money while evading the need to increase patient safety.”

FAIL: Environmental Alarmist Predictions

2014_12 31 Extinction predictions

ALARM: Two decades ago, the United Nations came up with several models that all predicted that by 2015, the Earth would have warmed by at least a degree Fahrenheit.

REALITY: In that time period, there has been virtually no warming at all. This has not deterred alarmists; they are oh-so-confident that the warming will pick up again REALLY SOON!

ALARM: A guide on the Pennsylvania EPA website says the planet’s oil reserves will likely be all used up by 2015.

REALITY: Because of technological innovations, the amount of our oil reserves is now double what it was two decades ago.

ALARM: A 2012 report by the Polar Ocean Physics Group at the University of Cambridge predicted that arctic sea ice would be completely gone before 2020 and possibly as early as 2015.

REALITY: The ice reached its lowest point in 2014, when it covered about 1.7 million square miles — an area nearly half the size of the United States. Since then, it has increased.

ALARM: In the 1980s, Dr. John Holdren predicted that carbon dioxide induced climate change “could kill as many as a billion people before the year 2020.” Holdren, who currently serves as the White House Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, said he does not view that statement as having been a “prediction” or “forecast” per se. Plus, you know, he’s got five more years left, so we NEEEEEEED to follow through on “the sensible measures in the President’s Climate Action Plan,” by which he means regulate our industries into oblivion.

REALITY: It’s tough to know how these people actually feel about the fact that there has been no climate catastrophe to kill off a billion people. They say they don’t want anything that bad to happen (so we need to regulate Regulate REGULATE), but they also say that the human species is a plague on the planet and we need to reduce Reduce REDUCE our population drastically (so YES PLEASE to enthusiastic support for voluntary and forced birth control, abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and denial of health care for humans who are defective, sick, old, expensive or just a nuisance to the Powers That Be).

TYLER UPDATE… IT’S NOT GOOD

From D#2s FB page:

Update: 2015 will be the year that Tyler beats cancer. He has been diagnosed with a peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor (pPNET). We won’t know the stage until they complete the scans on Friday, along with additional testing, to see if it has spread to anywhere else in his body. We were told that he will likely be back in Chicago on Monday to have a port installed to begin chemotherapy as soon as possible. Please don’t google. I’ve done it, and shut it down almost immediately. The most reliable information will come from his oncologist on Friday (Dr. Walterhouse at Lurie).

Our boy is resilient beyond measure, and we will fight this with everything we have. We are all still trying to absorb this, so please understand if we aren’t able to return phone calls, texts, or messages. It’s all very overwhelming, and our sole focus is on Tyler. Our core tribe will be heading to Chicago tomorrow night, and we will be telling Tyler about his diagnosis on Friday. In the meantime, I will be looking into as many resources as possible to figure out how to explain to my precious boy that he has cancer. It all just seems grossly unfair, but our only choice is to trust in God, and in his medical team, and hold his hand through every step. Please continue to pray, think good thoughts, or whatever positive vibes you can put in the universe for our boy. I will be setting up a Caringbridge account in the next few days, and will post a link so we can keep everyone up to date as we go.

One more thing. Fuck Cancer.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Makes all the complaints I can come up with seem piddling,doesn’t it?
