Abortion to “save the mother”? Nope.

Every time we try to talk about the rights of the unborn, the Left throws up the “wah wah you don’t care about the mother’s life” argument.

Wrong. We would care … if it were an issue. The thing is … it’s not.

First of all, such procedures are surpassingly rare.

  • Between 1967 and 1990, only 151 abortions were carried out allegedly to “save the mother’s life.” This amounted to 0.004% of all abortions.

Secondly, even these few may have been done for spurious reasons.  In 1992, a group of Ireland’s top gynecologists wrote:

“We affirm that there are no medical circumstances justifying direct abortion, that is, no circumstances in which the life of a mother may only be saved by directly terminating the life of her unborn child.”

There is firm data to support their position.

  • Irish law protects the unborn child as a person under the law, not as property like a car or a dog or a slave that can be legally disposed of as the owner chooses.  Ireland has the lowest maternal death rate in the world.
  • Between 1970 and 1979, 21 pregnant women died at Ireland’s busiest maternity hospital. An examination of their medical records shows that not a single one of those deaths could have been avoided by abortion.

2012 Dublin OB Declaration

One should understand that treatment to save the life of the mother that results in the death of the child as an expected but not intended side effect is not a direct abortion.

The simplest example of this is the removal of an ectopic pregnancy. In this situation, the baby begins to develop in the woman’s fallopian tube and has to be removed or the tube will rupture and cause the death of the woman.

The ethical distinction in the removal of an ectopic pregnancy is that the aim of the operation is to save the mother. In direct abortion, the aim of the operation is to kill the baby.

THE DAILY DOSE

First, a note…there will be no post tomorrow. I finally talked my BFF and fishing partner into taking tomorrow off. We haven’t been out more than a few times the past few years because of his work schedule and his wife and grown son like to go out in the boat as well. My beloved child bride and my family threw me a surprise birthday party (haven’t had one since I was twelve) and I promised RJ I’d get him out before school started. He said he’s never caught a catfish before, so we’re taking him on the river, where we know some good spots. Hopefully,we’ll have some luck. The reason I’m excited is I’ve never had an opportunity to do anything with just him. It’s always at a football or baseball game or a family function with a lot of people around.

My dad died when I was three and my granddad didn’t fish. I would sometimes wait all summer for one of mom’s boyfriends to take me carp fishing once. I never had a son and there are only so many opportunities to make memories while children are still young. Hopefully it will be a day he’ll remember as going fishing with grandpa. There is no price for that I would not pay.

OK… on with the dose.

There’s a lot of speculation about the Butcher’s e-mail servers containing top secret information and how she could wind up in jail. I have not taken a drink in more than 20 years, but I vow if it did happen, I’d get a bottle of Bacardi rum and proceed to get properly shitfaced. She’s the democrat nominee, so nothing will happen. It never does to the Clintons. An ordinary person (or a republican) would already be wearing an orange jumpsuit.

The purge has begun

The Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice is requiring that volunteers sign a document promising to never tell inmates that homosexuality is “sinful.”

Those who refuse are no longer permitted to volunteer.

One long-time, now former volunteer says the new regulations define anything less than affirmation of homosexuality as hateful and derogatory speech.

This includes Bible passages.

The American Pastors Network President Sam Rohrer said, “Pastors and all Americans must wake up to the reality of expanding efforts to cleanse our nation of all moral truth. When pastors and all Christians…are forced by government agents to renounce sharing the very reality of sin, they are in fact being prohibited from sharing the healing and life-changing potential of redemption.”

When the time comes for you to stand up, will you choose God or the government?

Hillary Clinton talks about her accomplishments as Obama’s Secretary of State

April 3, 2014: Hillary Clinton talks about her accomplishments as Obama’s Secretary of State

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman asked Clinton, “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of, and what do you feel was unfinished, maybe love to have another crack at someday?”

TRANSCRIPT HILLARY: “Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished, so when President Obama asked me to be Secretary of State I agreed.

IF HILLARY HAD BEEN HONEST: I was Obama’s Secretary of State.

TRANSCRIPT HILLARY: “We had the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, we had two wars. We had continuing threats from all kinds of corners around the world that we had to deal with. So it was a perilous time frankly.

IF HILLARY HAD BEEN HONEST: There were lots of problems at home and around the world, as per usual.

TRANSCRIPT HILLARY: “What he said to me was, ‘Look, I have to be dealing with the economic crisis, I want you to go out and represent us around the world.’ And it was a good division of labor because we needed to make it clear to the rest of the world, that we were going to get our house in order. We were going to stimulate, and grow, and get back to positive growth and work with our friends and partners. So I think we did that.”

IF HILLARY HAD BEEN HONEST: As Secretary of State, I represented the Obama administration around the world, because that’s what the Secretary of State is supposed to do.

TRANSCRIPT HILLARY: “I’m very proud of the stabilization and the really solid leadership that the administration provided that I think now, leads us to be able to deal with problems like Ukraine because we’re not so worried about a massive collapse in Europe and China — trying to figure out to do with all their bond holdings and all the problems we were obsessed with.

IF HILLARY HAD BEEN HONEST: While I was President Obama’s Secretary of State, Russia invaded the Ukraine and we did nothing; 4 Americans, including an ambassador, were slaughtered and we both lied about it; Syria “crossed the red line” and and we did nothing; Iran continued to work on developing nuclear weapons and we did nothing; China got feisty with its neighbors and we did nothing; North Korea threatened South Korea and Japan and we did nothing; Venezuela cracked down on democracy protestors and we did nothing; Muslim extremism increased and spread globally and we did nothing.

TRANSCRIPT HILLARY: “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense. That, once again — people began to rely on us as setting the values, setting the standards. I just don’t want to lose that because we have a dysfunctional political situation in Washington. Then of course, a lot of particulars, but I am finishing my book so you’ll be able to read all about it.”

IF HILLARY HAD BEEN HONEST: Obama and I managed to make America into a laughing stock around the world. Our friends don’t trust us any more. Our enemies take what they want, knowing we won’t do a thing to stop them. The only values and standards we set were the ones marked “Destroy America” and for that I’m really proud, because taking down the free and independent United States of America is what Progressives have been working toward for the past 100 years.

Goddess of Destruction, Kali on the Empire State Building; Apocalypse Clock Jumps 10 Years

But white and blue lights to honor Mother Theresa? Not so much.
48420955.cms
The Times of India – In a breathtaking spectacle, Goddess Kali was projected on the Empire State Building in New York.

220px-Kali_by_Raja_Ravi_VarmaArtist Andrew Jones designed the portrait of the goddess to make the point that Mother Nature now more than ever needs a fierce avatar to fight the dangers of pollution and extinction, Firstpost.com reported.

Uh huh. I know what Maa Kali is. Patron Goddess of the Thuggee Cult. Goddess of time, destruction and death.

From Wiki:

A variety of writers and thinkers have found Kali an exciting figure for reflection and exploration, notably feminists and participants in New Age spirituality who are attracted to goddess worship. [For them], Kali is a symbol of wholeness and healing, associated especially with repressed female power and sexuality. [However, such interpretations often exhibit] confusion and misrepresentation, stemming from a lack of knowledge of Hindu history among these authors, [who only rarely] draw upon materials written by scholars of the Hindu religious tradition.

That figures. My Indian friends are Christians, and they’re not fond of Kali. Just sayin’.
