“According to the CDC, the number one killer of children between 1-14 are accidents — vehicular, suffocation, and drowning,” he writes. “Twice as many kids under 12 died in cars than from guns. Also, if these studies began at birth rather than starting at one, the leading killer of all children would be diseases and genetic abnormalities.”
Harsanyi further notes that the studies cited by America’s answer to TASS count 18 and 19-year-olds as “children.”
This further inflates an already inflated count.
“When you take 18- and 19-year-old adults out of the equation, the number of gun-related deaths among kids plummets considerably,” he says.
He also points out that if one starts counting at fetal viability late-term abortion is by far the leading cause of death among the young. He says that — more than 8,000 viable unborn are killed annually with and probably more than 50,000 after 15 weeks.
Hey soccer moms, ask yourselves why so many traditional media sources would so unashamedly distort the data.
Woman Haunted By Chemical Abortion — Margot Cleveland’s story in today’s (April 26) The Federalist concerns a nightmarish account of a chemical abortion she had 23 years ago and her warning to today’s young women.
We are going to republish her testimony.
I was a second-year law student, living with my then-boyfriend (now husband). I was very liberal and a good feminist influenced by second-wave feminism. I found out I was pregnant just before Christmas. I wanted to keep the baby, but I was persuaded by family and my husband that it would interfere with my ability to finish law school and future career prospects. My husband was also terrified of letting his parents down and having a baby out of wedlock, which is something his parents always warned him about when he was young.
After Christmas, I called my GYN’s office, and without seeing me or speaking to me, the doctor asked the receptionist to give me the name and phone number of an abortionist. I made an appointment with him and was told it would cost $500. I had no idea what was going on or what I was doing. I was just making the calls and showed up.
My now-husband and I showed up for the appointment, mere days before New Year’s Eve. The abortionist was very direct and to the point. He gave me a transvaginal ultrasound, pointed at the screen, and said, “Here is the pregnancy.”
He then asked me if I wanted an abortion, and I said yes. He told me to roll over on the table, and he gave me an injection in my right hip. He told me this shot would make the heart stop beating. He then wrote me a prescription and told me to get it filled, take the pills, and insert them in my vagina in a few days, and that I would have cramping like a period and some light bleeding. He then said to make an appointment for another ultrasound to make sure it was clear.
I don’t know if I was in shock or not thinking things through. But it never occurred to me that I would be expelling an actual baby in my apartment. I was not prepared for what happened. Neither was my husband. I inserted the pills on Sunday, Jan. 2, 2000. My husband’s brother played college football and they were in a bowl game that day, so we sat on the couch and watched the game.
I started having intense cramping. At one point I went to the toilet, and a baby came out. It looked exactly like the pictures of seven- to 9-week-old babies you see in photos. It was rounded. There was a black eye. My husband fished it out of the toilet and held the dead baby in his hand. I remember looking at it and wondering what it was.
But I also knew what it was. I remember going completely numb. I did not ask to hold the baby. I just stared at it. My husband looked at me, and I think he was in shock too. He put the baby in the toilet and flushed it.
I have never forgiven myself.
I went to the doctor a couple of days later and the ultrasound was clear.
The next semester of school started for both of us. We decided to get married right away. I did not want to be in the situation again of not being married and getting pregnant. We were married by the fall. I think the wedding planning and law school kept me busy and kept me from thinking about what I had done.
We now have three children, but I still cry myself to sleep thinking of that baby. Nobody prepared me for what happened that day. Nobody even told me what would happen that day. I mourn that baby. I regret what I did with everything in me.
I kept being a liberal. I kept voting for Democrats and telling people I supported abortions. But something happened when I had my daughter in 2008. I started to realize the lies that were told to me. I started to realize I was an experiment for feminism. I realized I had been used by people with an agenda.
Hearing you talk about people being unprepared for having an abortion at home really hit me. It’s true. It’s the first time I heard someone acknowledge what happened and understand how horrifying and traumatic it was.
I was lucky and didn’t have to go to the emergency room. But I also wonder what would have happened if I had needed to. I was so unprepared for what was happening, I am not sure I would have realized I needed medical attention. Everything had been so casual and nonchalant. I did not grasp the seriousness of what I was doing. If I had started bleeding, I don’t think I would have thought I needed help. This sounds crazy to me now, but this is the cognitive dissonance I was experiencing.
I never went back to the GYN who referred me to the abortionist — my sister did and had two babies delivered by her. I couldn’t stand even hearing her name when my sister mentioned her. I can’t even remember it; it’s as if my brain won’t let me think of that phone call.
On the other hand, I will never forget the abortionist. His name, his office, his matter-of-fact way of telling me what he was doing, but also his complete avoidance of telling me what was happening. I read that he died. He was also a big abortion guy. I had no idea at the time. I also didn’t realize at the time that what he did was not even approved.
I now have three children, including a teenage daughter. I have not told her what happened. She and her brothers have no idea. I don’t even mark this pregnancy on doctors’ forms. I am not even sure if there is a record anywhere that I did what I did.
Tucker Carlson Heritage Speech; Historic, Ironic, Scary And Hopeful — Tucker Carlson addressed the Heritage Foundation, April 21, hours after his last show with Fox News and three days before the suits fired him despite his being the most-watched cable newsman.
“The most likely outcome is the most ironic outcome,” he said in the short discussion with Heritage President Kevin Roberts that ended his appearance.
He was quoting Elon Musk whom he just interviewed.
The hit-you-in-the gut part of Tucker’s talk come about half-way through when he starts talking about abortion and transgender surgery.
“Policy papers don’t account for it at all,” he said. “If you have people who are saying ‘I have an idea, let’s castrate the next generation; let’s sexually mutilate children’, I’m sorry that’s not a political debate . . . What’s the outcome we are desiring here? An androgynous population? . . . I don’t think that anyone could defend that as a positive outcome.”
He points out though that the weight of the government and a lot of corporate interests are behind that.
“What is that?” he says. “Well, it’s irrational.”
He said he understood the traditional debate regarding abortion i.e. sometimes it might be necessary vs protecting life.
“But if you are telling me abortion is a positive good, what are you saying? Well, you are arguing for child sacrifice. . . When the treasury secretary stands up and says ‘You know what you can do to help economy? Get an abortion’ that’s like an Aztec principle,” he said.
“What’s the point of child sacrifice? Well, there’s no policy goal entwined with that. That’s a theological phenomenon . . . none of this makes sense in conventional political terms. When people, or crowds of people or the largest crowd of people of all, which is the federal government, the largest human organization in human history, decide that the goal is to destroy things . . . which you’re watching is not a political movement, it’s evil.
He explained that humanity has always had an understanding of good and evil.
“Good is characterized by order, calmness, tranquility, peace, lack of conflict, cleanliness . . . and evil is characterized by their opposites, violence, hate, disorder, division, disorganization, and filth,” he said. “If you are all in on the things that produce the latter basket of outcomes, what you’re really advocating for is evil.”
Tucker’s quote regarding irony concerned how the the internet was causing ignorance.
“The core promise of the internet was as much information as we’ve ever had at your fingertips and the result has been the centralization of information –deliberate . . . but unnoticed by most people — (that) results in more controlled information that we could even have imagined 20 years ago,” he said.
“So a lot of information just is not available because it’s digital and it’s controlled by a small number of companies. Polling suggests that a lot of Americans — and I don’t mean hundreds but hundreds of millions of Americans – have no idea what’s going on. They don’t know the facts about certain things. It’s not because they are dumb or distracted on their iPhone. The whole point of the iPhone was to inform you and the net effect has been people completely ignorant of the . . . non-disputed facts about a lot of different things and you saw this certainly during Covid. That challenges the idea of democracy which rests of the notion of an informed voting public.”
Tucker said to save non-digital media like books because they can’t be revised by Big Brother. He said to prioritize the tangible, especially personal relationships.
“As the world becomes more digitized and people live in this . . . realm that’s disconnected to physical reality, I think the only way to stay sane is to cling more tightly to the things that you can smell. I’ve gotten to the point where if I can’t smell it, I’m not dealing with it and that includes books.”
Tucker encouraged all Americans to pray for their country for 10 minutes a day.
Abortion Pill Causes Dangerous Pregnancy Complications; Body Parts Not Necessarily Expelled; Dangerous And Toxic — Jessica of Montgomery County -based ProLIfeNews interviewed in February retired Superior Court Judge Cheryl Allen, who now serves as counsel for PA Family.
Among the subjects is how the ease in which abortion pills are now distributed is causing serious complications for many young women.
She noted one little discussed consequence in the unremitting encouragement of their use is ‘retained products of conception.’
“Which really means baby parts,” she said. “These pills are supposed to expel . . . the fetus but there’s no guarantee that every part of the baby’s body is expelled. Any part that is not expelled from the woman’s body can be very dangerous and toxic”
Medical authorities claim it is safe to take these pills up to 10 weeks in a pregnancy. Prescriptions are required to get them but they may be obtained via telemedicine which means there is no physical examination. Many of those getting these prescriptions are immature and/or poorly educated.
Without a physical examine and a certainty as to how advanced is the pregnancy, the likelihood of a bad outcome is far, far higher.
Since the interview, Walgreen’s Pharmacy has announced that it will not distribute abortion medication in 20 states.
“For someone to be able to get a prescription like this without a physical examination, is really dangerous,” Judge Allen said.
In another matter, she said the University of Pittsburgh has no intentions of stopping experimentation on aborted fetuses even if it means losing state funding.
She said that if state funding is cut off from Pitt, it is prepared to go back to being a private university as it was before 1966. No tears here if that happens.
Abortion Is Not Her Choice 60 Percent Of The Time Says Study — A study by researchers David C. Reardon and Tessa Longbons says women are pressured into abortion 60-percent of the time.
“Abortion does not empower women,” said Ms. Longbons. “Quite the opposite. The abortion industry enables and gives support to those who seek to control women.”
About 25 percent of the pressure is described as substantial or high pressure from male partners. Other pressure comes from parents, employers, health care providers and sex traffickers. Also cited are financial pressure, maternal health issues, and fetal malformation.
Obviously, it is cruel to punish a woman — or girl — for an abortion but those celebrating and encouraging it are vile. They are the epitome of evil.
The concept of “my body, my choice” is actually traceable to the Marquis de Sade, maybe history’s greatest misogynist. He wrote in his 1797 novel Juliette:
With regard to the father, he is in no wise concerned with whatever issue may occur, if issue there should be. And, with the assumption that women are held in common, which is what they should be and had better be soon, what concern could he conceivably have? He spits a little sperm into a receptacle everyone else relieves himself into, a womb where what can germinate does germinate; how is this gesture to turn into the grave obligation to look after a fertilized egg? No, he has no more duties to observe toward a foetus than he would toward something deposited by an insect and which some shit he dropped at the foot bf a tree caused to hatch several days later; in both cases I have cited, the problem is simply one of some matter of which a man needs to get rid and which subsequently becomes whatever it happens to become. The embryo is to be considered the woman’s exclusive property; as the sole owner of this fruit rather jestingly called precious, she can dispose of it as she likes. She can destroy it in the depths of her womb if it proves a nuisance to her. Or after it ripens and is born, if she is for any reason displeased with it or irked at having produced it, she can destroy it then; whatever the circumstances, infanticide is her sacred right. Her spawn is hers, entirely hers, and no one else can claim this bit of property belonging to no one else, utterly useless to Nature, and hence the mother may feed it or she may strangle it, depending upon her preference.
It could almost come from the Biden administration.
Other Side Of Abortion Debate — With the Democrat candidates rather dishonestly — actually extremely dishonestly — attacking Doug Mastriano and Mehmet Oz for their abortion positions, Chester County attorney Carmela Ciliberti has made a video detailing what it is the Democrats want.
Doug Mastriano And Abortion — We have heard from two conservative, pro life women who believe the ads painting Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano as a fanatic who thinks there should be no exceptions to abortion.
If Mastriano released an ad featuring himself giving a sincere explanation of his position in a way he has done in various interviews such as this one with Sean Hannity (11:10 mark) if might very well win him the election.
He can point out his sincere belief that life starts at conception, which is what science shows; explain that as governor he can neither write laws nor address the matter with an executive order; and that as senator he sponsored a “heartbeat bill”, SB 378 , that allowed for morning-after pills and other early interventions for rape victims prior to a detectable heartbeat, and abortions for ectopic and other life-threatening pregnancies in which there is no fetal heartbeat.
We suspect more exceptions would be included in any post-Dodd law, and Mastriano has indicated he would sign abortion bills based on fetal pain, which is believed to occur at 15 weeks of pregnancy or about nine weeks after the detection of a heartbeat.
His Democrat opponent Josh Shapiro supports abortion up to delivery without restriction.
Shapiro is the fanatic in the race and that might explain why that he, an attorney, is afraid to debate Mastriano, a retired Army colonel.
Houck Defenders Pack Chestnut Street To Witness To Feds — About 100 persons packed the sidewalk at 615 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, starting at 11 this morning, Oct.7, to call attention to the plight of the Houck family and the de facto declaration by the Biden Administration that political dissenters are enemies of the state.
The address houses the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania which is leading the Mark Houck persecution.
Houck allegedly shoved anti-life activist Bruce Love in October 2021 during a dispute at a Planned Parenthood clinic. Federal law prohibits the blocking of clinics — not just abortion ones — and that’s what the feds say Houck did.
Houck says he was 50 feet away from the entrance and Love had left his station, where he was an escort, to harass his 12-year-old daughter.
Regardless, on the early morning of Sept. 23 a group of about 25 heavily armed FBI agents in a convoy of 15 vehicles arrested Houck in front of his family.
For at worst a shoving match.
Dr. William Develin, a human rights advocate, emceed the event, which he called a “public witness” and led public prayer to start things. He reminded the group that they should love their enemies.
He introduced WPHT host Dom Giordano, a strong supporter, who said that someone in the state government had to sign off on the arrested.
Was it Attorney General — and Democrat gubernatorial candidate — Josh Shapiro?
Giordano noted that Houck is being represented by Brian J. McMonagle, one of the nation’s premier defense attorneys, along with Peter Breen. He said McMonagle is doing it at a steep discount.
Giordano contrasted the treatment Houck is receiving to criminals in Philly — there have been 410 murders so far this year in the city — and Hunter Biden, who he described as a “walking example of privilege.”
He called on the remaining good agents in the FBI to act and stifle the erosion of civil liberty.
Ashley Garecht of Pro Life Union of Philadelphia described how she and her teenaged daughters were harassed by State Rep. Brian Sims (D-182) at a demonstration and Sims went so far as to doxx the young girls.
“Nothing happened to Sims,” she said.
She said the Houck raid was the result of Joe Biden’s hellish rant at Independence Hall on Sept. 1 in which he said half the country “represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our Republic.”
She said a fundraising campaign she started has raised $300,000 for the Houcks.
Patrick Stanton of the same group described the vandalism that has occurred at Catholic churches in the city and mocked the FBI for lack of arrests. The crowd joined him in the mocking.
The event was observed by city police and uniformed officers of the Department of Homeland Security, and who knows what else.
Peter Breen described how he made several offers to have Houck surrender voluntarily. He also said that if they wanted to arrest him he could have him appear in a convenient public spot to spare his family.
Wasn’t going to happen. Stasi gonna Stasi.
Breen said that he was surprised at the blackout of the event in the local media.
He said the charges have no basis and every new fact he finds is in his client’s favor.
Kathy Barnette, who finished strong in the GOP Senate primary in May, passionately expressed anger at what was happening to this nation,.
“The issue of defending life is not a Republican issue,” she said. “It’s about defending truth.”
She said there were far more people like her than not.
She gave a shout out to a woman holding a sign saying “Atheist/Progressive/Pro Life”. The woman was found to be Terrisa Bukovinac, the founder of Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising.
Ms. Barnette said the federal government has been weaponized and the battle isn’t going to be easy.
“It’s going to cost us something for standing up for truth,” she said.
She noted that we should not expect a hero to save us.
“If you are sitting waiting for someone, it is you,” she said.
FBI whistleblower Steve Friend was scheduled to attend but did not.
The FBI wouldn’t allow him said Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense League.
Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Gale was recognized from the podium for his presence.
Kenneth Stracuzzi of Hope for Pa led group prayer prior to the official start of the event.
Houck Defenders Pack Chestnut Street To Witness To Feds
Houck Supporters To Gather At U.S. Attorney’s Office Friday — Citizens and national leaders will gather, 11 a.m., Friday, Oct. 7, at the office of the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, 615 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, Pa. 19106, to protest the FBI banana-republic raid of Mark Houck.
The raid occurred the early morning of Sept. 23 and involved about 25 heavily armed FBI agents and 15 vehicles.
Houck, a pro-life activist, is accused of shoving anti-life activist Bruce Love in October 2021 during a dispute at a Planned Parenthood clinic. The feds say he violated the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which makes it a federal crime to use force with the intent to injure, intimidate and interfere with anyone because that person produces reproductive health care.
Houck says Love was harassing his 12-year-old daughter and the dispute was not about clinic access.
Houck was arrested in front of his family. His lawyer had months earlier contacted the feds and said Houck was willing to voluntarily surrender.
Emceeing the event will be WPHT talk radio host Dom Giordano. Among those scheduled to speak will be Dr. William Develin, international human rights advocate; Ashley Garecht, a pro-lifer harassed at Planned Parenthood by Rep. Brian Sims in 2020; Patrick Stanton, of Pro-Life Union, the offices of which were vandalized about what the feds have yet to investigate; FBI whistleblower Steve Friend, who was suspended after reporting political SWAT raids in Chicago; former Senate candidate Kathy Barnette; Rev. Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense League; and Peter Breen of Thomas More Society who is Houck’s lawyer.
