Ariel Castro might face the death penalty for causing five miscarriages by punching one of his captives in the stomach whenever she became pregnant. In Ohio this is legally considered murder, but if it happens at Planned Parenthood and somebody pays for it, then it's fine.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said, "The death penalty is applicable under Ohio law for the "most depraved criminals who commit aggravated murder during the course of a kidnapping."
So we are being told that a fetus is both a human being and not a human being, at the same point in time. It is a life and it is also not a life, at the same time. It is a complete and obvious contradiction, but the courts ignore it. Shouldn't abortionists be put on trial and face the same penalty for killing an unborn baby as Ariel Castro is now facing? After all, they're done it many more times than Mr. Castro.

"Heaven forbid if you are forced to live on when you want to die. I would wake up feeling increasingly bad knowing that [treatment] was all being paid for by the government. The problem won't be solved unless you let them hurry up and die."
-Taro Aso, Japan's Finance Minister
I've heard that Japan has a high average lifespan, but I always assumed that was a good thing. Apparently, not so much. According to Mr. Aso old people are just a burden on society. They need to get a move on and pop their clogs already before they run the government out of money. It reminds me of what somebody else said about "end-of-life" care.
Believe it or not, this is not a joke. It is an actual ad put out by the "Center for Reproductive Rights" to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. Over 55 million children dead, it's time for a party!
Planned Parenthood announced their grand total for 2011. Over 300,000 babies dead. So congrats to Planned Parenthood on their progress in the war on children. Taking life from a baby isn't like taking candy from a baby, it's much easier, and the US taxpayers even give you money for it! Sweet gig!
And the American genocide continues, with 333,964 murders in 2011. That’s the figure proudly released by Planned Parenthood Federation of America in their report delineating how many abortions they performed in fiscal 2011. Doing some simple math reveals that the number of abortions performed equates to one abortion every 94 seconds.
And Planned Parenthood can be pleased with their progress: the number of abortions they performed in 2011 was up from 2010, when they snuffed out 329,445 lives. And the U.S. government can carry the banner high with the abortion provider; Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements,” including “payments from Medicaid managed care plans.”
