Illinois demorats seek to expand access to abortion via removal of parental notification and late-term abortions

What kind of adult believes it is a good idea for minors to have medical procedures without their parent’s consent? The baby-killing, pro-abort liberal kind…

As reported by MyFoxChicago: Illinois Democrats have introduced two measures that would expand abortion access in the state by removing a parental notification requirement and a ban on late-term abortions.

The proposed legislation was filed Wednesday, The Chicago Tribune reported. One bill sponsored by Democratic Rep. Emanuel Welch of Hillside would repeal the state’s parental notice law, which requires minors to notify a legal guardian before having an abortion.

The other bill would remove restrictions on late-term abortions, require private insurance companies in the state to cover abortions and allow advanced-practice nurses to perform the procedures.

“As a woman, a mother and someone who has been a longtime supporter of full access to reproductive care, from contraception, abortion, pregnancy and postpartum care, it is time to modernize and update these laws to reflect the equality of women in Illinois,” the bill’s sponsor, Democratic state Rep. Kelly Cassidy, of Chicago, said in a news release.

Mary Kate Knorr, who heads Illinois Right to Life, said the bills are “extreme” and “irresponsible.”

“This parental notification law is absolutely necessary,” she said. “There are women who are in abuse situations and are being trafficked that this law protects. This parental notification law is a checkpoint for abuse and human trafficking situations.”

A spokesman for Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker said he’s an advocate for women’s rights and is looking forward to reviewing the bills. Pritzker last month said he wanted to make Illinois “the most progressive state in the nation when it comes to standing up for women’s reproductive rights.”

Abortion rights are an important issue for Illinois residents, said Colleen K. Connell, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois.

“What the new law would do is say we will treat women’s health care – whether it’s for abortion, birth control or maternity care – we’re going to treat that as health care, not as a crime, the way the old enjoined laws did,” Connell said.

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.

In 1973 only 2.8% of American women had aborted a child.

By 2008 that percentage had grown to 40%.

SatanFrom 2008 to 2013, under the regime of President Lucifer, abortion mills have risen to a near governmental power, and are being actively promoted in the public schools.

The following article can be read at: https://www.johnstonsarchive.net/policy/abortion/uslifetimeab.html

Percentage of United States women who have had abortions

compiled by Wm. Robert Johnston
last updated 15 October 2008

Summary: It is estimated here that, as of 2008, about 28% of U.S. women ages 15-64 have had abortions. This figure has risen from 2.8% in 1973 to 11% in 1980, 19% in 1987, 24% in 1994, and 27% in 2001. In 2008, of women ages 40-55, about 40% have had abortions in their lifetimes.

From 1967 to September 2008, approximately 50,200,000 abortions occurred in the United States; of these, about 30,260,000 or 60% were to women with no prior abortions [1,2]. In other words, 30,260,000 different women had one or more abortions from 1967 to the present in the U.S.

Given that there were 101,314,000 women ages 15-64 in the U.S. in 2007, this implies about 25-28% of women ages 15-64 in the U.S. today have had at least one abortion in their lifetime. The uncertainty stems from unaccounted-for factors such as mortality among older women, women who have immigrated into the U.S. in this time period, U.S. women who obtained abortions abroad, and abortions obtained in the U.S. by women from other countries. (This discussion only includes legal abortions; illegal abortions prior to the 1970s were probably in numbers small enough not to significantly affect the final results.)

These statistics are reported by the Alan Guttmacher Institute:

  • “… roughly one-third of women will have an abortion during their reproductive lifetime…” (2008) [1]
  • “… of American women … at current rates more than one-third (35%) will have had an abortion by age 45.” (2008) [3]
  • “… of women aged 15-44 … 30% have had an abortion.” (1992 figures) [4]

The following data are based on a model incorporating data from a 2008 Alan Guttmacher Institute release [1], reporting 1973-2004 figures based on their periodic surveys of abortion providers (these surveys are widely accepted as the most complete data available on U.S. abortions), supplemented by CDC and other data for 1967-1972 [2] and estimates for 2005-2008.

The graph below shows estimated number of U.S. women who have had abortions by age. The annual number of abortions in the U.S. peaked in 1990, although the abortion rate per 1000 women aged 15-44 peaked earlier, in 1980. This abortion rate has dropped from 29.28 in 1980 to 19.41 in 2005, representing a variety of factors but likely including a shift in attitudes towards abortion. The peak in the graph has shifted with the aging of those women who obtained abortions in the 1980s.

The next graph shows the estimated percentage of U.S. women who have had abortions by age. Again, it shows the aging of women who obtained abortions in the first 15-20 years after Roe v. Wade and the more recent drop in abortion rates among women under 25. Consequently, the fraction of 25-year-old women who have obtained abortions has dropped from 32% in 1980-87 to 26% in 2001 and 21% in 2008.

The following table gives estimated percentages of U.S. women who have ever had abortions by age ranges–note that these percentages are approximate. Nonetheless, both the prevalence and the shifting demographics of abortion is evident. (One issue is the health implications of a large aging population who have obtained abortions in the past–for example, given the possible link between induced abortion and breast cancer.)

year estimated % of US women who have had abortions by age range
12-80 15-64 12-19 20-29 30-39 40-49 50-59 60-69 70-79
1973 2.3 2.8 2.7 6.2 2.7 0.6 0.0 0.0 0.0
1980 9.0 11.1 6.1 23.3 13.5 4.4 0.3 0.0 0.0
1987 15.2 18.6 6.2 30.6 29.6 12.2 2.6 0.1 0.0
1994 19.8 24.4 4.6 30.4 39.8 25.8 8.6 1.3 0.0
2001 22.3 27.0 4.8 26.6 40.0 36.9 16.6 4.8 0.3
2008 24.3 28.6 2.3 19.3 35.0 41.2 34.6 14.3 3.4

A 1998 study by Henshaw [4] included a more sophisticated analysis than the one above; for 1994, here are a comparison of percentage of women who have had abortions by age range from Henshaw and from this analysis–to give some indication of the uncertainty in the figures above.

year estimated % of US women who have had abortions by age range
15-19 20-24 25-29 30-34 35-39 40-44
1994, Henshaw 7.0 26.3 37.3 40.2 38.3 25.0
1994, this analysis 7.2 24.9 35.5 39.8 39.8 31.2

Baby like “Meat in a Crock Pot”

Late-Term Abortion Doc Caught Comparing Unborn Baby to “Meat in a Crock Pot”

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 5/8/13 8:08 AM
The pro-life group Live Action has released a fourth video in a series of undercover videos catching late-term abortion practitioners and abortion clinics misleading women and showing indifference to the destruction of human life.
The videos show embattled abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell is not an anomaly.

Dr. Carhart

Dr. Carhart

The latest investigative video release captures late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart on tape discussing the grisly details of the abortion procedure and misleading a pregnant woman regarding the dangers of abortion.
Cahart’s testimony is shocking and disturbing. He compares the child in the womb to “meat in a Crock-Pot” and then jokes about his abortion toolkit, complete with a “pickaxe” and “drill bit.”
“It’s like putting meat in a Crock-Pot, OK?” he tells the woman considering an abortion.
When a Live Action investigator, who is 26 weeks pregnant, asks about what happens to the baby during the procedure, Dr. Carhart responds:
Dr. Carhart: It gets soft – like, mushy – so you push it through.
Woman: So what makes the baby “mushy”?
Dr. Carhart: The fact that it’s not alive for 2 or 3 days.
Woman: Oh. So I’ll have a dead baby in me?
Dr. Carhart: For 3 days, yeah… It’s like putting meat in a crock pot, okay? … It gets softer. It doesn’t get infected or–
Woman: OK, so the dead baby in me is like meat in a crock pot.
Dr. Carhart: Pretty much, yeah … in a slow cooker.
Dr. Carhart tells an undercover Live Action investigator who is 22 weeks pregnant:
We do a shot into the fetus to end the pregnancy the first day. … Well, if everything works right, you just deliver them and they come out fine. I mean, if for some reason that doesn’t happen, then we have to take them out in pieces…
A twenty-six-week pregnant Live Action investigator inquires what will happen in the case of complications:
Woman: But if we run into trouble … for some reason, I’m not able to deliver, you’ll be able to get it out in pieces.
Dr. Carhart: We’d take it out…
Woman: What do you use to break it up? Just–
Dr. Carhart: A whole bunch of–
Woman: You’ve got a toolkit.
Dr. Carhart: A pickaxe, a drill bit, yeah (laughs).
As Live Action notes:

He casually described the abortion as a “shot into the fetus” to ensure that “[i]t’ll be dead for two days before you deliver it.” He told her the injection also causes the baby to “[get] soft, like mushy [makes squishing sound], so you push it through… so it’s like putting meat in a crock pot.” If this method is unsuccessful, he would  have to remove the baby “in pieces,” using, he joked, “a pickaxe, a drill bit.”
Both investigators asked if Carhart’s abortions “hurt” the babies. He replied by arbitrarily inventing his own parameters for when a fetus feels pain. “so, after about two to three weeks after birth… I think then they have pretty good knowledge of pain, but before that I’m not so sure that they do.” In fact, there is wide consensus in the scientific community that babies feel acute pain by 20 weeks of gestation.

Lila Rose, the president of Live Action issued these comments about the new video:
The video exposes Carhart’s shocking claims that “[a]ll the late abortions Carhart has done in Germantown have involved fetuses with abnormalities[.]” Yet, he was willing to schedule a late-term abortion for our investigator, who was a healthy woman with a healthy pregnancy.
This investigation reveals the horrors of the abortion industry and exposes the true victims in this situation: the mother and her child. Our videos expose the gruesome, illegal, and inhuman practices going on inside many of America’s abortion centers. Instead of this being a rare occurrence, we have proven that this is the norm.
Please watch our latest video now and expose the truth about the abortion industry. LeRoy Carhart and his abortion industry cohorts must be stopped, and this attack on women and their children must be brought to an end.  Women deserve better than this. America deserves better than this.

Ozone hole above Earth shrinks to record low

Good news about planet Earth!
The evil ozone hole over Antarctica is shrinking to record low dimensions!
But did you hear or see it on the MSM?
Stephanie Pappas reports for LiveScience, Feb. 12, 2013, that new satellite observations show that the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica is shrinking.
Ozone is a molecule made of three oxygen atoms. It’s relatively highly concentrated in a particular layer of the stratosphere about 12 to 19 miles above Earth’s surface. This ozone layer prevents ultraviolet (UV) light from reaching Earth’s surface, which is a good thing because UV light causes sunburn and skin cancer.
Ever since the early 1980s, though, a hole in the ozone layer has developed over Antarctica during September to November, decreasing ozone concentration by as much as 70%. The cause is human-produced chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were once heavily used in aerosols and refrigeration.
Antarctica is particularly vulnerable to ozone-depleting substances, because high winds cause a vortex of cold air to circulate over the continent. In the resulting frigid temperatures, CFCs are especially effective at depleting ozone. The result is that people in the Southern Hemisphere are at increased risk of exposure from UV radiation.

ozone layer

By international agreement, CFCs have been phased out of use, which has resulted in tangible measurable effects. The latest satellite data indicate that in 2012, the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica was smaller than it has ever been in the last 10 years.
The new observations, announced by the European Space Agency (ESA) on Feb. 8, come from Europe’s Met Op weather satellite, which has an instrument specifically designed to sense ozone concentrations. The findings suggest that the phase-out of CFCs is working, the ESA reports.
CFCs persist in the atmosphere for a long time, so it may take until the middle of the century for ozone concentrations to rebound to 1960s levels, the ESA reports. However, the hole in the ozone over Antarctica should completely close in the next few decades.
Of course, none of this changes the Global Warming/Climate Change ideologues, because they are a cult masquerading as science. It’s a cult immune to reason and empirical evidence (“Global Cooling For Last 10 Years”; “UN admits the sun may cause global warming”), sustained by fraud (“Employees of Al Gore discover he’s a bullsh*t hypocrite”) and lies (“New Emails Show Global Warming Scientists to be Frauds”), and hell-bent on imposing their will via intimidation (“Professor compares global warming skepticism to racism”), propaganda, coercion and power (“Here’s proof that environmentalists really are Nazis”).
Like the POS in the White House.
In his State Of The Union address on February 12, Obama made it clear that action by the federal government on global-warming legislation will be a major priority in his second term, declaring that “for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change.”
It’s always about “the children.” Yeah, Obama cares so much about “the children” that he favors the killing of unborn children up to the third trimester and even when they survive a botched abortion.
The POS then threatened Congress. If Congress wouldn’t act soon to enact “climate change” legislation, then he will take action without them:
But if Congress won’t act soon to protect future generations, I will (applause) I will direct my Cabinet to come up with executive actions we can take, now and in the future, to reduce pollution, prepare our communities for the consequences of climate change, and speed the transition to more sustainable sources of energy.” Blah, blah, blah.


Who needs Congress to make laws when there’s Emperor Obama? Who needs three branches of government? Who needs the Constitution?
Obama will rule all by himself with executive orders. Kings used to do that by issuing edicts.
As for all those braying hyenas in the media who had whined about Richard Nixon’s “Imperial Presidency,” there is only the sound of crickets….

Horrible massacres of children, worse than Sandy Hook

Nine days after the horrible slaughter of 20 children, ages 6-7, and 6 adults in Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut, America is still reeling and grieving.
Every day across this veil of tears we call Earth, human beings are killed and murdered. We are no longer shocked or outraged, accepting that as routine. But not when the victims are little children. Thankfully, we are still capable of being jolted from life-as-usual by the slaughter of innocents.
While the cold-blooded murder of 20 little kiddies in an elementary school in Connecticut, each reportedly was shot 11 times by devil-worshipper Adam Lanza, is unimaginably horrific, a pastor reminds us of other even more horrible child-murders, both past and present.
In his Dec. 23, 2012 essay for News-Leader.com, “Once again, mankind faces Satan,” Bob Johnson, pastor of Ozark Mountain Assembly of God in Kimberling City, reminds us of these other slaughters of innocents:

1. King Herod’s slaughter of all infants, age 2 and younger

Killing of Innocents by Herod (by Leon Cogniet, 1824~Killing of Innocents by Herod (oil painting by Leon Cogniet, 1824)~

After learning from the three wise men, of the birth of the one destined to be the King of the Jews, “Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the wise men, was exceedingly angry, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the region thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently inquired of the wise men.” Matthew 2:16
Only God knows how many baby boys were torn from their mothers’ arms and thrown into the Nile River.

2. The Nazis’ slaughter of Jewish children

In Jerusalem, alongside the Holocaust Memorial is the Children’s Memorial. As one walks through the semi-darkness of that memorial, the names, ages and countries of a million children who were murdered by the Nazis, are read. Lighting the darkness are the flickering flames of scores of candles representing the young lives that were snuffed out.

3. Islamic jihadists’ use of children as suicide bombers

Children and women are also used as suicide bombers

In recent years, psychopathic Muslims intent on jihad, are using children as suicide bombers, strapping them with bombs and sending them to blow up buses and other public places. Field trips by schoolchildren in Israel are accompanied by armed guards. The latest such attack was the targeting of a school bus with an anti-tank rocket.

4. The slaughter of innocents in the womb

By far, the most dangerous location for children in America is not our schools. The most dangerous location for our children is the womb. Since Roe v. Wade, more than 55 million unborn children had been aborted — suctioned out, scraped out, poisoned, strangled in “late-term or partial-birth abortions” as their heads emerge from the birth canal, or simply left to die from dehydration and starvation if they somehow survived a late-term abortion.

Why aren’t we shocked, outraged, saddened, and grieving about these other slaughters of innocents?

Obama is evil

All gloves come off. I will no longer mince words.

“Evil” is the deliberate intentional infliction of harm on an innocent other.

Partial-birth abortion is evil.

Partial-birth abortion is also called late-term abortion: an induced abortion procedure that occurs typically after the 20th week of gestation. Under the Intact D&X method, the largest part of the baby’s head is “reduced in diameter” to allow vaginal passage. According to the American Medical Association, this procedure has four main steps:

  1. Usually, preliminary procedures are performed over a period of two to three days, to gradually dilate the cervix using laminaria tents (sticks of seaweed which absorb fluid and swell) and drugs to induce labor.
  2. Once the cervix is sufficiently dilated, the doctor uses an ultrasound and forceps to grasp the baby’s leg and pull one or both legs out of the cervix, which is why the procedure is called “partial birth”.
  3. The doctor then makes an incision at the base of the baby’s skull and inserts a blunt dissector (such as a Kelly clamp) into the incision to widen the incision. Then, a suction catheter is inserted into the skull to suction out the baby’s brain, which causes the skull to collapse and allows the fetus to pass more easily through the cervix.
  4. The placenta is removed and the uterine wall is vacuum aspirated using a cannula.

Here’s a video describing just what happens in a partial-birth abortion:


In 2003, such late-term abortions finally became unlawful in the United States when the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (PBABA) was signed into law. But Barack Hussein Obama (and Michelle, too) not only approves of partial-birth abortion, he three-times voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 – a federal law, signed by President George W. Bush, which extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion.

Obama means to overturn both the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act and the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. If the latter were overturned, what will happen to babies born alive after a failed abortion?

They will be left alone in a room, to slowly die from starvation and neglect….

If you vote for this man today, you are voting for evil.

If you vote for this man today, your heart is as icy as his.

Just watch this video and tell me otherwise (h/t PatriotActionNetwork):


In all good conscience, how can you vote for this man? Unless, of course, like him, you are bereft of conscience. But like him, you too will have to answer for your black heart before God.

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.” -Matthew 18:6

Michelle Obama wants to legalize partial-birth abortion

A U.S. federal statute defines “partial-birth abortion” as any abortion in which the fetus is extracted “past the navel [of the fetus]… outside the body of the mother.”

Instead of other abortion methods such as suction (“vacuum expiration“) and dilation-curettage, in a partial-birth abortion, the fetus must be “extracted” for a simple reason: The fetus is already so developed that those other methods can no longer be used. Instead, removal of the baby now requires dilating the mother’s cervix in a procedure called “Intact D&X” (Intact Dilation and Extraction).

Under the Intact D&X method, the largest part of the baby’s head is “reduced in diameter” to allow vaginal passage. According to the American Medical Association, this procedure has four main steps:

  1. Usually, preliminary procedures are performed over a period of two to three days, to gradually dilate the cervix using laminaria tents (sticks of seaweed which absorb fluid and swell). Sometimes drugs such as pitocin, a synthetic form of oxytocin, are used to induce labor.
  2. Once the cervix is sufficiently dilated, the doctor uses an ultrasound and forceps to grasp the baby’s leg. The fetus is turned to a breech position, if necessary, and the doctor pulls one or both legs out of the cervix, which some refer to as ‘partial birth’ of the fetus.
  3. The doctor subsequently extracts the rest of the fetus, leaving only the head still inside the uterus. An incision is made at the base of the skull, a blunt dissector (such as a Kelly clamp) is inserted into the incision and opened to widen the opening, and then a suction catheter is inserted into the opening. The brain is suctioned out, which causes the skull to collapse and allows the fetus to pass more easily through the cervix.
  4. The placenta is removed and the uterine wall is vacuum aspirated using a cannula.

That is why partial-birth abortion is also called late-term abortion. A late-term abortion refers to an induced abortion procedure that occurs typically after the 20th week of gestation, although the exact point when a pregnancy becomes late-term is not clearly defined. The procedure is usually used in the second trimester, from 15 to 26 weeks, some of which occur before and some of which occur after viability.

Here are pictures of what a human person looks like in the 20th week of gestation:

Here’s a description of the 20-week-old human person:

The baby weighs about 9 ounces and is about six inches long. The uterus should be at the level of the belly button. The baby can suck a thumb, yawn, stretch, and make faces. Soon — if you haven’t already — you’ll feel your baby move, which is called “quickening.” (WebMD) By week 20, your baby [… is] filling out. His organs are getting into their proper places. His kidneys are now in position with their familiar bean shape. His testes (or ovaries for girls) have reached their position. His brain continues to form and grow. His teeth are beginning to appear, and he can swallow. (BabyZone)

Since 1995, led by Republicans, the U.S. House of Representatives and  Senate tried again and again to ban partial-birth abortions. During the Clinton administration, Congress passed two such measures by wide margins, but Bill Clinton vetoed those bills.

In 2003, late-term abortions finally became unlawful in the United States when the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (PBABA) was signed into law. The House passed it on October 2 with a vote of 281-142, the Senate passed it on October 21 with a vote of 64-34, and on November 5, 2003, President George W. Bush signed it into law.

PBABA includes two findings of Congress:

(1) A moral, medical, and ethical consensus exists that the practice of performing a partial-birth abortion… is a gruesome and inhumane procedure that is never medically necessary and should be prohibited.

(2) Rather than being an abortion procedure that is embraced by the medical community, particularly among physicians who routinely perform other abortion procedures, partial-birth abortion remains a disfavored procedure that is not only unnecessary to preserve the health of the mother, but in fact poses serious risks to the long-term health of women and in some circumstances, their lives. As a result, at least 27 States banned the procedure as did the United States Congress which voted to ban the procedure during the 104th, 105th, and 106th Congresses.

Immediately after the passage of PBABA, America’s death cultists began their tireless efforts to overturn the federal law. Beginning in early 2004, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the National Abortion Federation, and abortion doctors in Nebraska challenged the ban in federal district courts in California, New York, and Nebraska. All three district courts ruled the ban unconstitutional and their respective federal courts of appeals—the 9th, 2nd and 8th Circuits—affirmed these rulings on appeal.

The three cases were all appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court, and were consolidated into the case Gonzales v. Carhart. On April 18, 2007, the Supreme Court voted to uphold the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act by a narrow decision of 5 (Alito, Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas) vs. 4 (Breyer, Ginsburg, Souter, Stevens). [Source: Wikipedia]

Despite partial-birth abortions being “a gruesome and inhumane procedure that is never medically necessary,” that is EXACTLY what Michelle Obama — the First Lady of the United States of America, who is the mother of two young daughters — is determined to restore.

Here’s the proof.

Recently, a 2004 campaign letter signed by Michelle Obama, urging Illinois voters to elect her husband to the U.S. Senate, surfaced. In her letter, Michelle specifically mentioned the repeal of the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act as a desirable objective and as a cause to which a Senator Barack Obama will be devoted:

Not only does Barack Obama share Michelle’s determination to overturn the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, Obama does her one “better” — he doesn’t even want babies who survive a “botched” partial-birth abortion to live.

When he was a senator in the Illinois State Senate, he voted three times against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002 — a federal law, signed by President George W. Bush, which extends legal protection to an infant born alive after a failed attempt at induced abortion.

What happened to ADOPTION as an alternative?

The plain truth is THERE IS NO REASON to kill “born alive” babies who survive a partial-birth abortion. Most Americans favor adoption. U.S. federal government statistics show that as many as 30% of Americans have considered adopting, 60% of whom considered adopting an infant (as opposed to older children from foster care) in the United States (vs. from other countries).

Alas, voluntary placement of children for adoption is relatively rare in the United States. About 1.4 million children were born to unmarried women in 2003, comprising 34.6% of total births. Less than 1% of children born to never-married women were placed for adoption from 1989 to 1995; fewer than 14,000 children were voluntarily relinquished in 2003.

In other words, there is a great demand in the U.S. to adopt infants but an inadequate supply. Late-term or partial-birth abortions are cruel, gruesome, inhumane, and also risky to the health of the mother. Killing babies who survive a late-term abortion is infanticide. Adoption is the humane and safe alternative.

So why are Barack and Michelle Obama, the President and First Lady of the United States of America, so bent on killing instead of adoption?

Think about it.

Wanna see Obama’s “bumps in the road”?

Back in 2008 when I discovered that, as an Illinois state senator, B(arry) S(oetoro) Obama had three-times voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, I knew then that we’re dealing with a cold-hearted SOB. The Born Alive Act extends legal protection to an infant who survives a failed attempt at a late-term abortion. By voting against the Act, B.S. Obama effectively voted for infanticide.

So we really shouldn’t be surprised by the POS’s latest display of his icy pitch-black heart.

Last night, September 23, 2012, on CBS’s 60 Minutes, correspondent Steve Kroft interviewed the POS.

Alluding to the recent attacks on our embassy in Cairo and on our consulate in Benghazi, and the killing of our ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other diplomatic staff members, Kroft asked the POS “if recent events in the Middle East give you any pause about your support for the governments that have come to power following the ‘Arab Spring’.”


This is what the POS said:

“But…there’ll be bumps in the road…. There are streams of [Islamic] extremism and anti-Americanism and anti-western sentiments that can be tapped into by demagogues. There’ll probably be times when we bump up against some of these countries and have strong disagreements. But I do think that over the long term we’re more likely to get a Middle East and North Africa that’s more peaceful, more prosperous, and more aligned with our interests.”

Here are the “bumps in the road” to which the POS was referring:

Bump No. 1: U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens:

Here’s Bump No. 1’s dead body, showing bruises from having been tortured, being dragged through streets:

Bump No. 2: Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, who was killed along with Amb. Stevens:

Bumps No. 3 and No. 4: Former Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty who provided security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and were murdered along with Amb. Stevens and Officer Sean Smith:

Tyrone Woods (l); Glen Doherty (r)

See also “Muslims tortured, killed, dragged U.S. ambassador’s body through streets.” and “2 Navy SEALS killed with Amb. Stevens“.

And yet the polls say this POS with an icy pitch-black heart has the approval of 40% to 50% of Americans.

2001 – Obama’s Concern to Protect Abortionists Rights if Fetus/Child is Born Alive

I found this video embedded in a staff editorial, “Pray for President Obama; but No Christian Should Be Voting for Him!” on the website, Thy Black Man.  The article was written by Donald Thornton, a godly young man who hosts a call-in radio talk show, XSERVATIVESTALK .
