Senate hopeful, Missouri fool Todd Akin takes wide stance on legitimate rape

Representative Todd Akin revealed his “legitimate rape” standard was no misunderstanding — now he’s courting America’s vast army of Christian idiots who already share his belief in rape-modulated immaculate contraception, a convenient pretext for a complete abortion ban. Meanwhile his Larry Craig Wide Stance against abandoning his campaign bid in disgrace allows the GOP to earn points distancing themselves from Akin’s crass misogyny, even though their party platform is steeped in it. When I hear American conservatives seem to compete with each other over who can bring the ugliest inanity to the party, I can’t help be reminded of internet trolls –which constructive discourse requires we not feed. Except we are powerless to prevent the damn corporate media from feeding their GOP squeezebox monkey trolls and stoking the firestorm of ignorant, beyond the pale, political twists and u-turns.

Now pundits are mouthing suggested mea culpa for the recalcitrant unpenitent: What Akin should have said. I’ll have a go: I’m sorry, I’m a moron, a morally bankrupt, crap-regurgitating degenerate. Yes I’m a reflection of my constituents, but people, you can’t give no-ideologues like me the responsibilities of government. I know that much.

In Kansas first the religious nuts kill a doctor, then the state government comes along and revokes the medical license of his main associate!

Scott Roeder, 51,
the religious crazy who killed
Dr. George Tiller
 
It is clear that the religious Right Wingers have little to no morality at all. Here is a particularly grievous example of that lack of morality from the state of Kansas as the Right Wing religious influenced state government tries to enforce pregnancy on women against their will by now revoking the medical license of murdered Dr Tiller’s main associate. Kansas revokes doctor's license in abortion case.

Here is a link to the religious Right Wingers that advocate murdering doctors who provide abortion services to women… The Saltshaker Mission

These Right Wing terrorist crusaders are truly scary people, and surprise! They are not Muslims living overseas, but Christians living right here in Colorado and nearby in Kansas. In fact, they live all over the USA. All of them full of hate and their stupid prejudices, too.

‘Homeland Security’ anybody?

A brief current look at US ‘Christian’/ Pentagon imperialism and its current antiChina campaign

Gosh how sickening the ‘Christian’ propaganda does get inside the USA! One would think, listening to the constant propaganda, that US Christians are battling persecution and inhumanity everywhere instead of solidly funding and supporting US war, imperialism, occupation, torture and war crimes through their beloved Pentagon and their beloved ‘troops’.

The current campaign of the day centers around one US sponsored evangelical, Chen Guangcheng, Activists: Abuses exposed by escaped Chinese dissident continue, who is campaigning against China’s one birth per family policy, because ..egads!… abortion is involved! The storyline goes in the press, that he is being persecuted by evil Chinese communists and is now all of a sudden holed up inside the US embassy there in China! Poor blind guy! It tears one’s heart apart to hear how this poor Chinese Christian is supposedly being persecuted for his faith and blah, blah, blah.

But just who is this Chen Guangcheng, and who are his big sponsors? ChinaAid is one big sponsor for Guangcheng, and they are connected with the Southern Baptists, who want US Christians to intervene and try to stop China’s control over their previously exploding birth rate. See ChinaAid Founder Bob Fu at Launch of George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Freedom Collection to get an idea of how little these jerks really care about human rights anywhere, let alone in China. How many people in foreign countries did ‘Dubya’ Bush kill during his 8 years as US president? Quite a few we think. And most US Christians hardly blinked an eye about all ‘Dubya’s killings.

It just goes to show that very little is as it looks while briefly glimpsing headlines from the US propaganda machine. What looks at first glance like concern about a human rights activist, in reality can just be part of a long line of US political propaganda in fvor of militarism, pushing for more conflict and potential hot wars with Russia, China, Iran and Syria. And instead of really being a campaign for human rights in China, what we really have is a campaign to roll back world wide access to birth control and abortion services. See Chinese Human Rights Defenders Calls for End to One-child Policy

One really doubts that it is ‘force’ against Chinese women they are concerned with, but rather the fact that abortion is legal in China and widely used to keep in check any continued population explosion? One also doubts that these Chinese ‘activists’ would support China if it was assaulted by the US government in a violent war for control over the narrowing amount of natural resources available to the world? What do you think?

By defunding Planned Parenthood, Komen Breast Cancer Foundation shows its true colors aren’t pink

Is the all-things-pink breast cancer impresario bowing to Right-wing anti-abortion pressure in pulling their financial support for low-income breast exams provided by Planned Parenthood? That a nonprofit industry heavyweight like the Komen Foundation would shift its emphasis from helping the poor on quasi-moral grounds is deplorable, but hardly surprising. Their ubiquitous “breast cancer awareness” campaign is all about duplicity and greed. Instead of raising funds for awareness of where cancer comes from, research we could all use, Komen shifts the focus on mitigation. What would you think about a rape “awareness” campaign that emphasized victim convalescence over chasing down the rapists? Looking after the victims while rapes escalate? That’s practically enabling.

Homunculus Again

This time in Mississippi. The laws attempted by State Senator Bobby Franklin of Georgia would have made even wearing a condom into Capital Murder, and would place burden of proof that a woman wasn’t using contraception including the Infamous Trojan, squarely on that woman.
Now Mississippi citizens are displaying a similar level of ignorance with a similar quagmire (or is it tar baby?) of a law. If a woman who is married or known by the community to be sexually active, and not bearing children, would have to prove to the courts that she wasn’t practicing contraception.
Mississippi is right behind Texas in the percentage of people getting food assistance and AFDC. Just, you know, incidentally and by the way. And is scheduling cuts in public health care, so women would have to prove they’re not deliberately remaining childless at their own expense.
It’s just so very wonderful to see my fellow “christians” behaving with so much compassion.
It would if strictly enforced make War illegal because War Causes Miscarriage which is medically termed Spontaneous Abortion. However, an Aerial Bombardment would make in NOT spontaneous but externally induced, and since the U.S. Air Force and the RAF demonstrated that in world war two it would lend whole new depth to the term Babykillers being used against the War Pigs. That’s the GOOD news and about the only good news available in the whole mess.

The Bad News is the War Pigs, once they have a country “pacified” would merely condemn any civilians who “chose” to be born in a potential war-zone, as in: any place in the world which has oil… and say that it’s the mothers’ faults for living in a place the Air Force wanted to bomb.

Georgia Lawmaker Bobby Franklin: Homunculus Ignoramus

A state legislator in Georgia drafted a bill that would make every single form of contraception into Capital Murder. In the bill he not only categorized abortion as illegal, but also made it where people (Women ARE people) who have miscarriages, medical term being “spontaneous abortion” would have to prove that they did absolutely nothing to cause the miscarriage. Then it defined giving full citizenship not only to ferti8lized eggs but also to Sperm itself. The Term Ignoramus isn’t what most Americans think. It’s a Latin verb using the “editorial” or “royal” pronoun WE. Ignoramus means “We Ignore It”.

There’s another term there, Homunculus which is a pre-scientific mythological construct. It refers to the notion that in a mans “seed” in reference to sperm, the “seed” is a spiritual being that is the fully formed human soul ready to be inserted into the woman, who has no effect whatsoever on the genetic makeup of the child. She’s just the unclean vessel to carry the “seed” while it grows.

But hindering a Homunculus from being inserted into the womans “vessel” is also Capital Murder.

In a state where they want to allow schoolchildren to carry guns and murder other schoolchildren, this Jackass Bobby Franklin is actually proposing that the State be allowed to kill anybody who uses a condom.

We can not Ignore It.

They also conveniently don’t propose prosecuting George W Bush for ordering the aerial bombardment of Iraq even though it’s known, and documented by the U.S. Air Force, to cause miscarriages.

“Right to life” but only until you exit the birth canal, and of course if your not some Dark-skinned person whose nation WE decided doesn’t have human inhabitants. Just sand-niggers, muzzle-monkeys, Towel-heads and Wogs.

Film: Maafa 21, Black Genocide in 21st Century America, a white anti-abortion shockumentary of execrable mendacity

Martin Luther King Jr. was an advocate of birth control, it remains a key tool to escape poverty, but that didn’t stop organizers of MLK tribute festivities at Colorado College from ending today’s program with a screening of MAAFA 21: Black Genocide in 21st Century America, a completely contrived shockumentary attempting to incite African American anger toward reproductive rights activists. Both UCCS and Colorado College fell for the propaganda, even though the pseudo-documentary by Life Dynamics Incorporated, a virulent Christian anti-abortion project, has been thoroughly debunked since its debut in 2009. Add Colorado Springs’ higher educators to duped churches nationwide who are diverting the black struggle against the legacy of slavery, economic oppression, racist yahoos like the makers of Maafa, and endemic racism, into animosity for the social workers of Planned Parenthood and their eugenic agenda of genocide via abortion. While the black community, like its indigenous brothers, does face a real genocidal program of forced poverty and violence, these agitators invoke race baiting to divide class war allies, MLK be damned. CC’s clueless invitation read: This movie has been called “stunning,” “breathtaking,” and “jaw-dropping.” You have only to watch the opening minutes on Youtube to add –execrable, mendacious and absurd. You can be against legal abortion without conniving to blame the Black Holocaust on those who disagree with you.

To argue the “facts” offered up in this “documentary” is to give them credence they don’t deserve. And the issue of abortion is so polarizing, there really is no discussing it. Throw in slanderous accusations and you’re arguing with fools. Imagine decrying that the abolitionists were racists because they would deprive the slaves their free lunch. Well okay then.

My solitary concern here is that this video has escaped the bounds of the dogma-skulled religious extremists unto the screens of higher education campuses. By presenting this video in the context of a celebration of Martin Luther King, reveals the absence of a skeptical eye. Of course academics will recognize the logic-dissonance self-evident in Maafa, but a TV-type audience will eat it up like every other hate-mongering offering. Giving the Maafa screening the appearance of a college endorsement is unforgivable. But Colorado College of course has not been shy about promoting similar quacks, neoclassical economists, climate change deniers, Zionists, pro-war imperialists, and free-trade globalists. That’s what you get when you appoint politicians as deans, politicized pro-establishment education.

The video begins with a premise almost too corny to believe: once the slaves were emancipated, America’s ruling elite needed to get rid of them. This might sound like a plausible motive for a Bond villain, but it ignores the demands juggled by real-life capitalist villains who need a steady workforce to exploit. The slaves were freed, but someone still had to shoulder the work. The fields of the South and the industrial centers of the North still needed its laborers. The obscenity of Maafa’s lie is that abusers of labor have always been against birth control because it threatens to shrink their supply of impoverished, desperate people. And we can trace back to ancient times the role religion has always played in keeping the laborers in line.

Again, you can be against abortion, but don’t pretend your interests don’t dovetail with those who want to perpetuate poverty and human suffering. If you are safely in the middle class, by all means discourage your children from limiting your progeny through birth control, but don’t force that choice on those who can’t afford it.

The sad reality of racism is that a disproportion of African Americans are poor. It’s no coincidence that poor black women account for a greater share of abortions. To attribute that reality to creepy, long-shunned writings of eugenicists of a century ago is dishonest.

Catholic Global War On People who Don’t Comply With Corporate Rulers

Some of the issues were very publicly addressed by John Paul II. Not as publicly by Benedict but even Pope Joey Ratz doesn’t give blessings of the church, and thus absolution to Catholic chaplains and other soldiers.
Abortion. That’s a big hot issue not only with Catholics but Protestants. In the run-up to the Bombing (in which the Air Force were “first to fight” just a side note) and eventual occupation and enslavement errr… “liberation and nation building” of Iraqis the news came out, even on American stations, that Iraqi doctors were being called on to deliver late-term babies by Caesarean Section or induced labor, to prevent “miscarriages” also known by the medical term Spontaneous Abortion, caused not spontaneously but by the stress of such Liberating “Shock and Awe” events as aerial bombardment.
That takes the term “spontaneous” out of the picture. It’s Induced Abortion caused by actions of the United States Military.
Why I got off on this tangent was a series of comments supporting the Murder Campaign errr… Wars of Liberation and Nation Building by a gentleman (I think) who professes to be a Good Catholic.

I mean, even the current Pope, who isn’t a Leftist or even a Moderate Rightist, doesn’t endorse the war, with that one being a strong issue.

There’s other issues, the Anti-Catholic murders performed by Catholic Mercenaries in the war against the People of Nicaragua in the 1980s and, really, still continuing. Some of those killed were nuns, priests, students and teachers at Catholic schools, doctors nurses and patients at a Catholic Hospital, children at a Catholic Orphanage run by American priests and nuns. That’s pretty stout.

If the WarPigs didn’t want to take on the name of AntiChrist they should have left that strictly alone.

Those who are Catholic, well, you’ve got a lot of Ave Marias and PaterNosters to say, plenty of bead-clicking and petitions for absolution.

That nutty Catholic Church once again!

Catholics
 
Hey, we’re nuts here at NMT and we admit it. But what about the Catholic Church that wants so much so, that others continue to take it seriously as they have for millennia? Here’s the latest, as the Papal legions had mobilized to try to force a 9 year old Brazilian girl to carry to term twins after she was raped by her step father!

They are just such a sick church that it should be enough to make Christians join Scientology even! Rape row sparks excommunications …Do Catholics really think that they’re going to Heaven with beliefs like the Pope’s, because God will certainly give the biggest kick ever to the rear end of the present Pope when he comes a knocking on the Pearly Gates? The guy’s a total and disgusting clown!

Once again, the sick Catholic Church is in the news

Pope Ratzinger BenedictThe sick Catholic Church just never ceases to amaze! Italy is now embroiled in its very own Terry Schiavo case, and the Catholic Church is trying to bring murder charges against a father for allowing his brain dead daughter to finally die after 17 years passed in a vegetative state. Can you imagine people any more cruel than this? Despite the change in the Pope’s views about evolution, this Pope and this church seem to have less brains than a herd of spider monkeys does! Death probe for coma case father and see also…

‘At an emotional press conference on live TV, Premier Silvio Berlusconi vowed to save Englaro`s life. A law on living wills sparked by the Englaro case has started its way through parliament and the government hopes it will be passed by the summer. There is currently no legislation governing living wills in Italy. A living-will law passed by a conservative-dominated parliament would be extremely restrictive, observers say, although it could be open to charges of breaching the Italian Constitution. Berlusconi has said the law will “forbid any sort of euthanasia“. It would also prevent doctors from removing feeding tubes from people “unable to take care of themselves“, he said.’ from ELUANA FATHER PROBED FOR MURDER

It’s the Italian Catholic Church behind this semi-fascist Italian version of Dubya the chimp, Silvio Berlusconi, but this case is not the only one in the news this week that demonstrates the sick Catholic Church’s lunacy! Travel to Brazil and we see where the one half way sane priest in the Church get’s canned by his pedophile hiding archbishop this week! Do you think that the creepy Pope Rat will reverse this? Not a chance! He’s going to side with the pedophile hiding archbishop, that’s what! See Brazil priest suspended for views

…The BBC report doesn’t let you in on that this archbishop was in the news in 2002 for covering up for his pedophile priest under investigation who later got convicted despite his active opposition to the police’s investigation! Sick! And in contrast, the punished priest’s supposed crimes? He advocated that condoms be used during sex! And he had the nerve to say that homosexuals shouldn’t be discriminated against.

Here is the Archbishop now back when he was a mere bishop relatively unrewarded for his service to the Catholic Church hierarchy….

‘Brazil Fr. Sebastiao Luiz Tomaz 13 – Nineteen girls between the ages of 10 and 16 reported some type of sexual contact with the priest in exchange for clothes and money. Later the same year, Bishop Aldo Pagotto was denounced by the Public Ministry of Ceara for attempting to coerce this priest’s victims to change their testimony. By July 2002 21 victims had come forward, and nine claims had been proven with medical evidence.14’

from SEXUAL ABUSE & MISCONDUCT IN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH Note though… This archbishop is a biggie in the movement to criminalize all abortions in Brazil, so Pope Rat certainly will be helping the archbishop out in his dispute with the liberal priest. Immoral people preaching morality to others… That’s the church! They make one want to vomit up Holy Wafers big time!

Women on Web- a much needed home abortion service

Churches want to tell you what to do as do parents influenced by these churches. Insurance companies get into the act and mess up the process of getting decent medical care when you need it. And government, too, wants to make life’s decisions for you and force you to be pregnant and have a child against your will. Thank goodness that some people are on your side and are trying to help young women out despite all the barriers others have put in the way of doing so.

After all, some of us don’t want more women to become just another part of the forgotten statistics of women dying from abortions made illegal by others. Women on Web can help make it possible to have an abortion at home, minus all the moralizing religion, government bureaucracies, and all the idiots that want to convince you it is murder to stop one’s own pregnancy from continuing to delivery.

This service by Women on Web is especially important in countries where all abortions have been made illegal by government and church decree. An abortion through Women on Web may not be an ideal method, but it sure beats back alley medicine in a poor Third World country any day. Spread the word about this service being available to young women in countries where abortion has been made illegal or access has been greatly restricted.

Horton Hears Your Fetus

Horton Hears a Who
Do you remember the lesson of Horton Hears a Who? No matter how small, everyone matters. Fox has brought the theme to the animated screen and not-unlikely bedfellows are seizing on the message. Under the revival tents, the anti-abortion preachers want you to glean something further from Horton: that the very life of a tiny embryo could depend on you, if only your inner elephant can be persuaded you hear its call.

Although, they’re are not talking about the embryos deliberately created en vitro by fertility clinics, terminated when too many have taken to the uterine wall. Nor babies miscarried, nor still-born. Do the pro-life Hortons not hear them?

Let’s agree that abortion is tragic, and shouldn’t be bandied about as a lifestyle choice like a Brazilian wax or a boob job. Personally I’d prefer our culture wasn’t so enthralled with promiscuity. Don’t encourage drinking if you can’t live with the car wrecks. Don’t paint sex as the ultimate of fulfillments if your society has set as acceptable norm a procreative age over a dozen years later than we are biological capable.

Fighting Fifth Avenue and mankind’s propensity to hedonism is doubtless harder than bringing the hammer down on a pregnant teen. Shouldn’t the church come down on immorality instead of its victims? Abortion is a hard choice, like any harsh dilemma. We euthanize cats and dogs when there become too many. A “domestic” animal designates those in man’s care, which live to serve us, and die according to our dinner plan. We ride our horses but leave them to the French to eat. To our credit we show a reluctance to face nature’s difficult choices.

Religious beliefs have been the ultimate causes of war, justifying killings in fanatical number, to this present day. Religion is always behind genocide. What is it about pre-infanticide that’s got zealots so indignant?

Is this about an egg and sperm’s right to wed? Or about the church’s prerogative to mandate pregnancy? I think to a large extent, it’s about enforcing puritanism, the better to reserve the sex drive for manipulating people. You can’t have your masses contentedly debauched, they must be repressed and thwarted, being lured by sex to get married and pregnant to breed the next batch of easily motivated worker/consumer drones.

I admire the Right to Life credo that all life is sacred. But is it? Right to Lifers remind me of pedigree animal rescue outfits, only THEIR breed is sacred enough worth saving. What about other forms of life? Owls? Whales, small fish? Are these pious folks practicing vegans, concerned not to exploit any living being? Do they feed themselves like the Buddhists monks who consume liquids through a strainer, careful not to swallow even a flea?

The pro-lifer’s concern is not for the human being small person, it’s only for the unborn baby. And it’s only for the unborn of their likeness, and more than likely from their neighborhood. Other cultures’ offspring are mere driving factors of overpopulation, unless they are our colonial suppliers of cheap labor.

And what about already born babies? Or babies -or tiny children- belonging to foreigners, right now being shot at by our troops? Where is the Right to Life alarm about people we are depriving of life? Horton’s lesson was that others matter, regardless of size. Would that mean not just little people? What of adult people being exploited, tortured or condemned to death, who is concerned for their right to life?

One of the charms of Dr. Seuss is that his myriad creatures represent an incalculable gamut of fantasy beings. Horton does not hear a baby elephant for example, he hears a WHO. The Whos of Whoville are not of his world at all, and might well inhabit a forth dimensional anthill as far as Horton can figure. Would this not be quite the humanitarian message for religious nuts preoccupied only for their own? Miserably too, they are not obsessed with precisely their own, but about YOUR own, whom they claim as theirs to save. Their daughters are having abortions, to the last, I can assure you that.

The your-baby demagogues are motivated by penance, for deed past or to come, but instead of flagellating themselves, they’re beating on your daughter. They are concerned for the right to life of her baby, to be conceived unprepared for and un-afforded. They stand for that baby’s right to the unending cycle of ill-parenting, vocational training, indebtedness, and life of servitude.

Dr. Seuss lived long enough to see the Religious Right’s interest in exploiting the Horton Hears a Sinner theme. Both Theodor Geisel and his widow publicly repudiated the holier-than-thou interpretation being used to agitate against abortion. But now his earthly voice is extinguished, and we can see Pro-Lifers don’t respect the dead either.

Millions of women injured yearly from outlawing abortions

Outlawing abortions has the same effect as outlawing drug use or outlawing prostitution. In all 3 cases, the ‘remedy’ makes things much worse than the supposed ‘crime’ does by itself. Untold misery always occurs when other people insist on inserting their ideas of morality into the law, and therefore onto others that do not share those beliefs. Right, Ted? Why force people into having kids when they cannot support them, or even themselves?

A BBC article discusses the results of a study about the effects on women’s health of outlawing abortions throughout much of the globe. But can such a study truly tell the whole story? Can it document the effects of all those unwanted children born to women that had their abortions blocked by repressive laws? Can it document what it is like to be those children born into poverty stricken families overloaded with other unwanted kids?

Take a stand on abortion

How many friends do you know who’ve had an abortion, or who’ve contributed to the unhappy circumstance which lead to an abortion? How many do you know who for certain haven’t?

This is an informal poll. Are we talking about well over half the people you know, yourself included?

Think about each of them in the span of this crisis. Most of your friends were young at the time and scared. Thankfully it hadn’t been a matter of securing an illegal abortion like you would seek out a drug pusher.

The choice was the option society had stigmatized or another stigma: pregnancy. It was also a decision to undergo a surgical operation at the hands of doctors you’d never met before or who you’d heard heard often did not have the most pleasant bedside manner; you had to figure out how to pay for it, and you had to keep it from your parents because they wouldn’t have understood.

Was this not emotionally challenging enough? What if you’d had to cross a line of protesters, heckling and taunting you, attempting to physically get in your way? What if you’d gone to a clinic which advertised free pregnancy tests only to discover it was a bogus front where they traumatized you with graphically violent and misrepresentative descriptions?

An abortion is difficult enough without absolute nut-cakes spreading their self-hatred. Do you think your peers should have been forced to carry out their pregnancies? That so many found themselves in such a predicament speaks mainly for the need for a healthier and earlier embrace of birth control. Perhaps a better pill.

Where would you or your friend be now if abortion had not been an alternative? Because the environment for abortions has grown incredibly hostile, you may want to do something about it. Here are some ideas:

1. Sign up to “Pledge-a-picket” at Planned Parenthood. Every time a protester pickets a clinic they’ll know the clinic gets money from you.

2. Whenever there’s an ANTI-CHOICE demonstration, get some balloons ready.

3. When you see those horrible miscreants on Saturdays disrupting a clinic, drive by slowly and from the back of a pickup pee on them.
