Some guy called Patrick Tomlinson tweeted what he considered to be proof positive that the “life begins at conception” crowd are hypocrites. Briefly, he proposed a situation where a pro-lifer is trapped in a burning fertility clinic and can rescue only a five-year-old child crying for help or a frozen box labeled “1000 Viable Human Embryos.” Which would you choose? The child, of course. GOTCHA! You don’t really believe life begins at conception. Ba-da-bum.
Matt Walsh skillfully and logically took his silly hypothetical to pieces. Just one paragraph of his article:
“It doesn’t matter how I value them personally. It’s their intrinsic value that matters. I value my family over your family but your family has the same intrinsic value. I’m making the decision based, as I said before, on emotion. I can see the child. I hear him crying. I’m looking him in the eyes. I grab him. It’s instinct. But there’s also some logic to it. I don’t really know how many of those embryos are still viable and whether they’ll ever be implanted and given the chance to develop. Again: this calculation WOULD NOT justify killing the embryos under any circumstance, but it would justify my decision to save the child instead. By the way, if it were a five-year-old and a 70-year-old in there, I’d save the five-year-old. If it were a five-year-old and Patrick Tomlinson in there, I’m still saving the five-year-old. Sorry, Pat. But does that mean Pat’s life has less value? Does that mean I could crush his skull and suck his brains out with a vacuum hose? No, it just means that my emotional impulse leads me to the child, not the pretentious pro-abortion dude who spends his time posing disingenuous hypotheticals.”
Tomlinson responded to Walsh’s response: “Oh Matty. If only I gave a shit what you think.”
Wait, what? Didn’t he specifically ASK pro-lifers to respond to his hypothetical?!
Walsh pithily responded with this.
Another tweeter added the cymbal crash with:
“It’s like watching Batman solve the Riddler’s puzzle, and the Riddler’s subsequent tantrum afterward.”
- Walsh’s entire response to Tomlinson’s hypothetical is worth reading.
Hillcrest abortion clinic has FINALLY been shut down.
In the past six years, the clinic was cited four times for health and safety violations that included everything from failing to maintain proper medical credentials to maintaining supplies that were 13 years old. Hillcrest also performed a number of abortions without having a nurse present and failed to perform mandated criminal background checks on staff.
The latest inspection yielded 44 PAGES of violations which the clinic failed to correct by the August 31st deadline. It doesn’t look like they have any plans to reopen, since they had the gas cut off for non-payment and the Pennsylvania Department of Health website now lists the dump as “closed.”
Planned Parenthood head, Cecile Richards, says every person has the right to live. This may seem to be an odd statement given that PP kills more than 300,000 unborn babies a year.
The key point to understand here is that Richards doesn’t believe unborn babies deserve to be called “persons.” Science says they are alive and human, but they are classified under the law as PROPERTY.
Legal abortion is the ONLY so-called civil rights issue where a group of living, human Americans moved from being defined and protected as PERSONS under the law to being defined and disposable as PROPERTY under the law.
Slaves and women went the other way. Those were true civil rights advances. Legal abortion is not.
The Progressive Left claims to want an honest discussion about America’s past. Okay, let’s discuss Planned Parenthood’s revered founder, Margaret Sanger, who would have fit right in with the racist and anti-Semitic mob in Charlottesville last weekend.
As Jonathan van Maren explains, “I’ve been writing about the alt-right for over a year now, first detailing their anti-Semitism and later examining their pro-choice position on abortion.” [Excerpts and link below.)
Richard Spencer is the neo-Nazi who actually coined the term “alt-right.” He runs the website AltRight.com where he has affirmed that the alt-right does not believe in human rights and, like Margaret Sanger (founder of Planned Parenthood), does believe in eugenics and the extermination of non-whites and the disabled.
Mr. Alt-Right Spencer says he was inspired by Lothrop Stoddard, a long-dead Klansman who thought that African Americans posed a threat to “white civilization” and wrote a white supremacist tome called The Rising Tide of Color.
Stoddard was also so beloved by the Nazis for his racial theories that he even met personally with Adolf Hitler. He also worked closely with Margaret Sanger who appointed him to the board of Planned Parenthood’s forerunner, the Nazi-friendly Birth Control League.
- “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” – Margaret Sanger
- “A drastic curtailment of the birth rate at the source of the unfit, the diseased and the incompetent” was necessary, and to accomplish this “the birth control clinics all over the country are doing their utmost to reach the lower strata [minorities] of our population.” – Margaret Sanger
- In her book The Pivot of Civilization, Sanger advocated for the elimination of those she considered to be “human weeds,” stating that she was calling “for the cessation of charity, for the segregation of morons, misfits, and maladjusted,” and additionally, the sterilization of “genetically inferior races.”
Planned Parenthood condemns the Alt-Right. Yet Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading killer of black lives and regularly donates to and bestows awards on America’s Democrats.
Writing multiple posts seems pretty useless, given the blissful solitude here, but I doubt it will last, so what the hell.
LOOK FOR THE MEDIA TO COVER THIS UP….CHILDREN ARE DISPOSABLE IN THEIR EYES
Iceland Approaches 100% ‘Termination Rate’ of Babies with Down Syndrome
A disturbing new report from CBS News reveals that nearly 100 percent of pregnant women in Iceland whose babies test positive for Down Syndrome wind up aborting their children.
“My understanding is that we have basically eradicated, almost, Down syndrome from our society—that there is hardly ever a child with Down syndrome in Iceland anymore,” said Kari Stefansson, a geneticist and the founder of deCODE Genetics, a company that has studied nearly the entire Icelandic population’s genomes.
Patricia Heaton Rips CBS Report: Iceland Didn’t ‘Eliminate’ Down Syndrome, Just ‘Killing Everybody’ That Has It
Actress Patricia Heaton is responding to CBS’s new report that Iceland has exterminated nearly all children with Down syndrome through abortion.
The network tweeted, “Iceland is on pace to virtually eliminate Down syndrome through abortion.”
“Iceland isn’t actually eliminating Down syndrome,” the pro-life star of ABC’s The Middle tweeted in response. “They’re just killing everybody that has it. Big difference.”
WITHOUT DIVINE INTERVENTION I FEEL THIS IS THE DIRECTION OUR VERY OWN COUNTRY IS HEADED.
WITH ABORTION RATES AND HOMICIDES BEING APPALLINGLY HIGH IN SOME AREAS LIFE HAS LITTLE MEANING.
Two Ohio abortion facilities have closed. The one that did surgical and medication abortions is listed as “permanently closed.” The one that did medication abortions and referred surgical patients to the other one is listed as “closed until further notice.” All phone lines for both clinics are answered by a busy signal.
Both had a history of failed safety inspections, including trash and food debris in the patient waiting room, stained and dirty carpets, dirty equipment, no lid on a container of used needles, cabinets with drugs and prescription pads inside left unlocked, drug vials left out on the counter, supplies and supply boxes scattered around the procedure room counters and floor, gurneys were covered with heavy black plastic and secured with duct tape under the mattresses, and inadequately trained staff.
Oregon legislators are going to have a lot of lives to answer for at judgment.
The state House and Senate have both passed a radical pro-abortion bill that Gov. Kate Brown says she will sign soon.
The new state law will force force health insurers and taxpayers to pay for free abortions for residents and illegal immigrants.
It will also set aside $10.2 million tax dollars for abortions, contraception and other reproductive health services for 2017 through 2019 in Medicaid, much of which pro-life advocates say will go to Planned Parenthood.
It isn’t clear to me if U.S. citizens who reside in other states will be able to travel to Oregon and demand that Oregon taxpayers provide them with free abortions as well.
