NY State Assembly approves bill to inject poison into hearts of babies in the womb

For years, the New York state legislature has been embroiled in a battle over a package of bills called the Women’s Equality Act (WEA) that supposedly promotes the interests of women. The 10-point WEA is held up in part because the legislature has resisted the 10th point — a late-term abortion measure, AB 6221, which allows abortionists killing the unborn by shooting poison into their little beating hearts.

NY State AB 6221

Since 2013, abortion advocates have been holding the Women’s Equality Act hostage to this single AB 6221, refusing to break the 10-point bill up. The legislature resisted passing AB 6221 despite strenuous support from the supposedly Catholic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The position of the Catholic Church is and consistently has been that abortion is an “intrinsic evil,” which means it is not subject to negotiation. Being an intrinsic evil, abortion also takes precedence before any of the Church’s other concerns, including the darling of the Left — “social justice.”

On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, in a vote of 94-49 the New York State Assembly approved passage of AB 6221, which will expand third-trimester abortions and allow non-doctors to perform abortions.

Third-trimester abortion is also called late-term abortion — the deliberate murder of babies who are 7 to 9 months old, who feel pain, and who are viable if allowed to live outside their mothers’ wombs.

New York State law currently allows for late-term abortion, i.e., abortion in the third trimester, only when the mother’s life is in danger. AB 6221, sponsored by Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, will instead allow abortion on-demand throughout all nine months, i.e., up until the 9th month. The law would be changed to allow abortion for any reason deemed “relevant to the well-being of the patient” including physical, emotional, psychological, and familial factors, and the mother’s age.

Lori Kehoe, New York State Right to Life executive director, said:

“Expanding cruel and brutal third-trimester abortions has long been a goal of the anti-life lobby who never met an abortion they didn’t like. With no regard for the fully developed unborn baby who is violently dismembered, or otherwise killed, the New York State Assembly once again put the abortion lobby above New York State women and their children. We now look once again to the Senate to hold the line in defense of the children which happens to also be in accordance with the will of the rest of the people. It is ridiculous that in 2015, with all the technology at our disposal, we are still arguing whether or not an eight month old baby in the womb deserves protection. It is doubtful that our descendants will look kindly upon this period in our history, when we fought for the right to dismember babies weeks, days and even minutes before birth.

New York State Right to Life will be discussing this and other attacks on members of the human family at their free-to-the-public Lobby for Life Day on April 29 at the Legislative Office Building in Albany.

NY Assemblywoman Deborah Glick

New York State Assemblywoman Deborah J. Glick represents District 66 in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Her official bio says “Deborah is the first openly lesbian or gay member of the New York State legislature” and that “As an elected official, she has focused on civil rights, reproductive freedom, health care, lesbian and gay rights, the environment, housing, higher education, social justice, animal rights and funding for the arts.”

Clearly, for Glick, “animal rights” do not include the rights of the human unborn, even up to 9 months old.

‘Queering Your Campus’ workshop calls pro-life movement ‘clinic terrorists’

safdaf

Campus Reform: Young feminists who recently attended the 11th annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference (NYFLC) will return to their college campuses with a new rallying cry to combat pro-life “clinic terrorists.”

During the conference, hosted by the Feminist Majority Foundation, attendees could participate in a crash course on campus activism titled “Queering Your Campus.” According to NYFLC’s description of the workshop, students were taught how to organize on campus for gender-neutral restrooms and housing and foster “intersectional feminist activism.”

A flyer passed out during the workshop, and later obtained by Campus Reform, encouraged the young activists to “kick off [their] group meetings and amp up [their] next rally” using a variety of short chants including, but not limited to:

“Pro-life, that’s a lie/ You don’t care if women die!”

“Two, four, six, eight/ Separate church and state!”

“77 cents is not okay/We demand equal pay!”

drama

One of the proposed chants described individuals who oppose abortion as “clinic terrorists” and urged young women facing unexpected pregnancies to let young feminists on their campus know:

“Hey, hey! Ho, ho!/ Clinic terrorists have got to go!

“Whatever we wear, Wherever we go, Yes means yes, no means no! Pro-life men have got to go. When you get pregnant, let me know!”

Hey ho, what do you know - a pregnant man!

Hey ho, what do you know – a pregnant man!

In addition to the list of chants, conference-goers could take home stickers proclaiming “I [love] my local abortion provider” and purchase miniature finger puppets of historical female figures including Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, and Sojourner Truth.

Other workshops offered to attendees included “Reinventing Rosie: Reframing the Workforce for Women,” “Sex-positivity: Educate, Empower, Self-Define,” and “Keep Your Religion Off Our Bodies.” Climate change was also addressed with one breakout session titled “Ecofeminism: Activism to Create Climate Justice.”

The conference took place March 21-22 in Washington, D.C. On Monday, attendees took their activism to Capitol Hill for “Congressional Visit Day.”

Time Promotes Photo Book on Summer Camp for ‘Gender-Creative Kids’

you are you

Newsbusters: Following in the footsteps of The New York Times Magazine in 2012 and Slate.com in 2013, the March 30 edition of Time is promoting the photographs of Lindsay Morris. The headline was “Happy Campers: Documenting a rural retreat for gender-creative kids.” As opposed to most children, who are apparently “gender-stodgy.”

you are you2

Morris is coming out with a book titled You Are You in which they call these children “gender-unique.” The book blurb says through “sensitive images the viewer will experience an important moment in history where the first gender-creative childhood is being openly expressed with the support of friends and family. Morris reaches beyond the confines of the camp to contribute to a dialog about the crucial role that support plays in the lives of gender unique children.”

Eliza Gray

Eliza Gray

Time’s Eliza Gray began: Raising a child who doesn’t conform to gender roles is a minefield for even the most supportive parents. How do you let your children be themselves while also protecting them from bullies? That question led a number of parents, who met through a therapy group for gender-variant children, to organize an annual four-day camp in the wilderness for their kids. Almost all the boys are “biological boys who like to wear girls’ clothing,” aged 6 to 12.

Gray elaborated: Some will grow up to be transgender, while others will become gender-conforming adults. Still more may decide to embrace a fluid concept of gender.

“Living with ambiguity can be very hard,” writes one of the parents in a reflection in the book. The beauty of the camp is that it allows the kids to live comfortably in the middle, a difficult place to occupy during the rest of the year.

Morris hopes her work will help gender-creative kids and their families realize they are not alone. Along with the photographs, she includes a list of helpful children’s books and support organizations. But the book’s greatest value may be in showing the joy of children who are allowed the simple freedom to be themselves.

Democrat Suggests Kids Should Be Drug-Tested Before They Can Inherit From Their Parents

height_630_no_border_width_1200

DailyCaller: Democratic Rep. Linda Sanchez offered a baffling defense of the death tax Wednesday during a hearing examining the sometimes unbearable burden it places on family farms and businesses.

People receiving food stamps have to pass drug tests or meet work requirements to receive taxpayer dollars, Sanchez reasoned, so it’s only fair that those “lucky” enough to inherit wealth should have to do something to earn it or, in this case, pay a tax.

“What work requirements are there to inherit up to $10 million tax free?” she asked a witness, rhetorically.

Why is that [a single mother] should be drug tested, which is an unrelated requirement to receive food assistance, to make sure that her family has enough to eat,” she asked. “And people who are lucky enough to inherit millions of dollars are literally required to do nothing to get the federal tax benefit with their inheritance?” 

Sanchez acknowledged that Americans should value hard work, but bemoaned the “paradox” that occurs when they want to work hard so they can accumulate wealth to live off of in retirement and pass on to their children.  “We don’t believe in an aristocracy, or that it’s a good societal thing for dynasties to hoard their wealth and leave the rest to fight over the crumbs,” she said. “That’s just not how this country was founded.”

taxedtodeath2

“But we have a paradox here in this country, where we think you should work hard to get where you are … but by the same token, everyone wants to make enough money to where they can retire and not have to work,” she continued. “And they want to preserve increasingly larger and larger chunks of their wealth.”

Sanchez made the remarks after hearing a witness describe the heartbreak her family is going through watching her father try to find a way to pass his business along to his children without breaking it up in order to pay the death tax.

“Our whole lives we watched my dad work,” Illco, Inc. CFO Karen Madonia said. “You know, 10 to 12 hours a day … he did all of it. And we watched him struggle through all that, and to watch him figure out how he can pass it onto us and let us make our mark on it without having to dismantle part of it is really just heartbreaking.”

The government currently taxes inheritance at a rate of up to 40 percent. 

“I understand the desire to keep things running in a family business,” Sanchez said. “I get that. I get the hardships you guys encounter. But let’s not throw the entire baby out with the bathwater and say we’re going to eliminate the estate tax altogether.

Republican Rep. Kevin Brady introduced legislation last week that would repeal the death tax, which prompted the hearing Wednesday by the House Ways and Means Select Revenue Measures Subcommittee.

“The Death Tax is still the No. 1 reason family-owned farms and businesses in America aren’t passed down to the next generation,” Brady said in a statement announcing the bill. “It’s the wrong tax at the wrong time and hurts the wrong people.”

Rescued Magpie Becomes Lifelong Friend with the Family Who Saved Her Life

After being rescued and nursed back to health by a young family in Newport, Australia, a magpie named Penguin has become a regular visitor and friend at the Bloom family’s home, playing with them and coming in to hide when it rains.

Penguin was discovered flying on the ground near a library in 2013 by Noah, who is now 11. After being nursed back to health by husband and wife Cameron and Sam and their children (Reuben, 13, Noah, 11, Oli, 9), Penguin was allowed to fly free, but still returned often to spend time with the family. She plays catch, saunters through their home and even perches on their shoulders.

The bird waits for the family to leave their home before flying on her own way in the morning, and greets the kids when they get home from school; “It’s like a dog wagging its tail – she sits there in the tree and flaps her wings like she’s excited,” Noah’s father told ABC News.

“Little baby magpie came into our lives when she fell from a tree at about 3 weeks old”

“We gradually nursed her back to health with a proper Magpie diet and lots of cuddles.”

MAGPIE SLEEPS

“She watches tv, jumps on the tramp with the kids, flies into our bed in the morning and cuddles up.”

MAGPIE FRONTAL

“I never thought she’d become as much a part of the family as she has. [The kids] love her like a dog, but better.”

MAGPIE KISS

MAGPIE FEET IN AIR

She’s free to fly – she often will just hang out around us in the morning then when the kids go to school she’ll do her own thing.”

MAGPIE FLY

“If you flap your arms like wings – she’ll flap her wings.”

“She spends a fair bit of time cruising inside the house, picking up the kids’ scraps and playing games. She’s pretty domesticated”

“When the kids play handball here with their friends… Penguin just flies from kid to kid, sort of gets involved. It’s pretty fun. It’s chaotic.”

“If other magpies are around she’ll make a beeline for the house and fly in here so she doesn’t get bombed and pecked – they really attack her.”

“A few months ago there was another baby magpie, a local one. She started playing with it and it came into the house.”

“Penguin and this one were just… talking and carrying on together. It was really cool.”

Revived by the power of love

When Kate and David Ogg were told their newborn son Jamie had passed away on March 25, 2010, they took him in their arms and cradled him to keep him warmDaily Mail – by Emily Crane

First-time parents Kate and David Ogg were heartbroken when they were told one of their twins – born two minutes apart at just 26 weeks – had stopped breathing and had just moments to live.

Thinking it was the only time they would have with the tiny boy they had already decided to name Jamie, Kate asked to be able to hold the lifeless child, and told David to climb into the hospital bed for a tender embrace.

What happened next was nothing short of a miracle.

Jamie and Emily are now about to turn five years old and their parents have only recently told them of the miraculous story Jamie and Emily are now about to turn five years old and their parents have only recently told them of the miraculous story. Posted on by Angel – NYC

In this mother’s loving arms, the little boy started moving, and his breathing grew stronger. Hospital staff rushed back to his aid and together brought the baby back to life.

Five years on, Jamie Ogg is a healthy, happy kid whose biggest problem regarding his troubled entry in the world is having a little brother who tells anyone who’ll listen that he used to be dead but now he’s alive.

After years of trying to fall pregnant, the Queensland couple were delighted to find out they were having twins – the ‘pigeon pair’ of a boy and girl.

But just six months into the pregnancy they found themselves in the delivery room and facing premature births.

Jamie was born first on March 25, 2010 and his sister Emily followed two minutes later.

‘They were both born in their sac but Jamie didn’t make a noise when they tore it open. Emily let out a big wail,’ Ms Ogg told Daily Mail Australia.

‘We looked over and everyone was crowding around Jamie – there was about 20 people in the room. The vibe wasn’t very good.

‘He stopped breathing and his heartbeat was nearly gone. After 20 minutes they stopped working on him.’

The doctor sat on the end of Ms Ogg’s hospital bed and asked the couple if they had a name picked out. He then informed them that there was nothing more they could do to save Jamie.

‘I saw him gasp but the doctor said it was no use. I took Jamie off the doctor, asked everyone to leave. He was cold and I just wanted him to be warm,’ she said.

‘We had tried for years to have kids and I felt so guilty. I just wanted to cuddle him. I unwrapped him and ordered my husband to take his shirt off and climb into the bed.

‘I know it sounds stupid, but if he was still gasping there was still a sign of life so I wasn’t going to give up easily.

'I know it sounds stupid, but if he was still gasping there was still a sign of life so I wasn't going to give up easily,' Mrs Ogg said

‘I know it sounds stupid, but if he was still gasping there was still a sign of life so I wasn’t going to give up easily,’ Mrs Ogg said

‘We were trying to entice him to stay. We explained his name and that he had a twin that he had to look out for and how hard we tried to have him.

‘He suddenly gasped… then he opened his eyes. He was breathing and grabbing Dave’s finger.

‘If we had let the doctor walk out of the room with him, Jamie would have been dead.’

Jamie and Emily are now about to turn five years old and their parents have only recently told them of the miraculous story.

‘Emily burst into tears, she was really upset and she kept hugging Jamie,’ Ms Ogg said.

‘They love to talk about when they were babies.

‘They have a little brother Charlie who loves telling anyone who listens. He’ll say: “When I was born I was fat and the twins were skinny. Jamie was also dead but now he is alive”.’

Remarkably, Jamie has not encountered one medical problem in the five years since his birth.

‘He is absolutely fine… the biggest concern they had was cerebral palsy because of the lack of oxygen but there’s been nothing,’ Ms Ogg said.

‘It’s absolutely astounding. This whole experience makes you cherish them more.’

The Ogg family have set up an online community called Jamie’s Gift to regularly raise funds for the Miracle Babies Foundation – an organisation that supports premature and sick newborns.

Dave is currently training for an Ironman triathlon in Port Macquarie in May to raise funds.

‘He will put his body through a gruelling 3.8km swim, 180km bike and a marathon,’ Ms Ogg said.

God is good, all the time, and all the time, God is good.

“I Have Come To Indoctrinate Your Children” Homo Activist

“I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children” – LGBTQ Activist

March 14, 2015

(Left, Sason Bear Bergman, 40, formerly Sharon Jill, is a Jewish woman who “changed” into a man and then married a man.)

“I want your children [to become] like me…”

This article proves homosexual activists are intolerant. While society is willing to live and let live, these bigots, a microscopic minority, impose their norms on us. If we demur, we are “homophobic” and “bullies.”

Government, schools and corporations pay Bear Bergman to convince their people he is healthy and normal. He
creates “queer and trans cultural competency at universities, corporations, health care providers, and governmental organizations.” A founder of the first Gay/Straight Alliance, he lectures on making schools “safe” for GLBT students. He resides in Toronto with his husband J Wallace and their son Stanley.

By S. Bear Bergman
I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I’m Not a Bit Sorry)
(abridged by henrymakow.com)

I am here to tell you: All that time I said I wasn’t indoctrinating anyone with my beliefs about gay and lesbian and bi and trans and queer people?

That was a lie.

All 25 years of my career as an LGBTQ activist, since the very first time as a 16-year-old I went and stood shaking and breathless in front of eleven people to talk about My Story, I have been on a consistent campaign of trying to change people’s minds about us. I want to make them like us. That is absolutely my goal. I want to make your children like people like me and my family, even if that goes against the way you have interpreted the teachings of your religion.

I want to be present in their emotional landscapes as a perfectly nice dad and writer who is married to another guy. Who used to be a girl (kind of). Who is friendly and cheerful and not scary at all, no matter what anyone says.

I would also like to know: Why are we so afraid of admitting this? I ask as a person who quailed before this accusation (and its slimy misguided undertones of pederasty) for more than two decades. That is our job: to encourage people, especially children, to think differently about a subject than they do now. To dispel the dim and dismal miasma of myths and stereotypes, and instead allow the light of truth and fairness to shine in. That’s the deal, my friends. And if we have done it — if we have come to a place where a kid has been struggling in the muck of ignorance and hatred, and helped them up and cleaned them off and sent them to play in a meadow of love or at least kindness — then baby, we have done the thing well.

At the moment, I am helping to put the finishing touches on a series of children’s books that all feature lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer kids or families. There are six books, and they are racially and ethnically diverse, filled with girls and women doing cool things, page upon page of kids enacting their own identities in joyous and peaceful ways.

There’s no bullying or shaming in these books, and no Very Special Episode identity politics — it’s just happy kids being well, solving problems, having adventures, loving and being loved. They have lesbian mums and gay dads and big extended queer chosen families; some are gender-independent. But what they all are is present. They are all in the books, on the page, on the landscape….

image

How do we talk to children most effectively? Through story. And so, I set about trying to make a set of children’s stories that would teach kids what I want my son and all of his schoolmates to know — that people like the people in our family (both biological and logical) are absolutely great.

It wasn’t hard for me to understand that kids who get that message, even if they never know any our LGBTQ people as far as they know, may indeed carry it into adulthood. I watch the rash of recent murders of trans women and I think — there’s nothing I can do about that now except give money and pray. I do those things. But if there’s anything I can do to get ahead of the problem, to refashion the world so that the humanity and value of trans women is made evident to more people, and sooner, in the face of cultural forces than I want to do it. I want to teach kids all about the idea of trans people like children in Nebraska read books about the ocean: even if you’ve never seen it, it’s still a lovely thing that exists in the world, and you will get to enjoy it one day, if you’re lucky.

That’s what I want kids to know about lesbian, gay, bi, queer, and trans people — that we exist, that we’re perfectly fine and often really excellent, and that even if you don’t know any now you will before too long. I want them to know that we’re absolutely as worthwhile and worthy of love and respect as anyone, and that if you’re kind to us and behave yourself well there’s a better than even chance you can get an invitation to brunch. I want kids to know this even if their parents’ or community’s interpretation of their religious tenets is that we’re awful. I would be happy — delighted, overjoyed I tell you — to cause those children to disagree with their families on the subject of LGBTQ people.

If that makes me an indoctrinator, I accept it. Let me be honest — I am not even a little bit sorry.

Henry,Sometimes I have to ask myself if there is something wrong with me, am I the normal one, or am I beyond help for feeling this outraged at things like this?

VARIETY magazine pumping up Sally Field’s new movie HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS, about a sixty something grandma who has a ‘crush’ on a thirty something male. This is supposed to be funny stuff, I can’t for the life of me find any humor in this Henry.. I remember trying to watch Betty White’s new show where she stops young men on the street with ‘sexual inuendo’. I could not laugh, I wanted to die of embarrassement, I wanted to puke. I have not watched Betty White since.

Now we have Sally Field, a grandmother in real life, who is going to expect me to laugh at her ‘crush’ on a boy who is the same age as my real son, in his thirties.

I suppose this is all just typical Hollywood liberal behavior, but honestly, I am so embarrassed for Sally Field’s real-life grandchildren that I can’t wrap my brain around whatever possessed this actress to want to play a perverted grandmother who has sexual fantasies about young men, then proceeds to sexually molest them in her mind.

Watching the trailer to this movie made me physically ill.

When does the perversion stop in Hollywood?
I am REPULSED.

AK said (March 15, 2015):

I find it frightening to see the spread of this culture, it seem no escaping this. Christian and Muslims should respond to this lady by launching children story books, talking about gender identities according to faith.

Alan C said (March 14, 2015):

Regarding the article on wanting to indoctrinate our children. NO THANKS! Gender Confusion is a mental disease, God Created man and woman as two parts of the whole, so that the branch of humanity can keep reproducing (pro-creation).
When a male or female discontinue their branch that is the death of that branch of the human tree.

God gives many examples of his Tree-Mend-Us principals, as He is the tree of life. Why must some people promote death, not passing on the mans seed though another woman? This is known as a being a “mamser” (death of the next generation, the terminus, end of the line etc.).

Personally I do not care when people who are gender confused, can do what they want in the closet I do not Judge them. But when you come after My children then you have crossed the line and there Will be a fight.

Please get help before you destroy many others, as you have yourself.

MA said (March 14, 2015):

This is the new world order. It isn’t something that is coming in the future, we have been living in it for years. Likewise, I somewhat believe that the antichrist may be manifested spiritually in these times, rather than as a physical person. The bible seems to communicate that the spirit of antichrist is the denial of Christ as the one true Son of God, and it also described him as a deceiver.

The amount of deception, temptation, confusion and total darkness in the world today supports the theory that his evil spirit rules the world.

There really is no hope for these people confused into the homosexual movement, they are incredibly sick and they cannot be helped. Not that it isn’t possible to help them, but help is denied them. The entire western model is built around accepting their sickness as normal. In Ontario there is a crazy women politician who wants to deny them help even more by banning conversion therapy.

It is hard not to feel bad for these sick people, especially those in the ‘trans’ community. Who ruin their lives and bodies through hormones, and (God forbid) surgery. It is like the crystal meth of homosexuality. The people who deny them help, and call this normal are criminals and need to be eradicated.

The only hope for this world would be for a massive revolution and restoration of sound thinking, good living, true beauty, morality etc. That will only come through a miracle. Even the head of the Catholic Church (which could and should of been a bastion of resistance against this anti-Christ world order) is appearing to be possibly an imposter.

In his power, he could sound the alarm and wake millions up to the fact that the world is sick. But instead he says, ‘Who am I to judge’, cursing these people to remain sick instead of providing any hope of healing.
Diane said (March 14, 2015):

This is why I am finding being a stay at home mom so valuable. It is an inoculation against this disease. This is a quiet and loving battle moms need to fight on a daily basis.

BTW, when I worked at a hospital system before quitting work, we changed ALL of our health screening questions to be “inclusive” toward this community. This meant, in triage, nurses asking an elderly lady who had perhaps had a fainting spell, what gender she considered herself to be.
