Kermit Gosnell guilty verdict
Kermit Gosnell has been convicted of killing three babies and may be sentenced to death.

(From CNN) "Monday's first-degree murder conviction means Gosnell, who is not a board-certified obstetrician or gynecologist, could be sentenced to death.

Gosnell also was accused in the death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who died of an anesthetic overdose during a second-trimester abortion at his West Philadelphia clinic. In that case, the jury found him guilty of involuntary manslaughter.

Gosnell was also found guilty of 21 counts of abortion of the unborn, 24 weeks or older."

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.


You probably haven't seen this on the news, because they're ignoring it.

President Obama meeting with Prime Minister Taro Aso of Japan in Oval Office on February 24, 2009.

"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.

Center for reproductive rights and their creepy happy anniversary abortion ad
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!

Barack Obama
Of course jobs are important, but in reality whoever is elected president has very little effect on the economy. Where the president's power to sign or veto a bill is much more influential is on issues like abortion. For some reason the murder of millions of children in our country, condoned by our own laws, is being largely ignored by even the candidates that claim to support life.

The most vocal candidate on the topic however, seems to be Barack Obama. While he was in the Senate, Obama voted three times against the "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act". While there is a war being waged against unborn (and already born) children, Obama is talking about a "War on Women". Lest we forget the millions of women that are being killed every day, a practice supported by Obama.

Apparently money is a lot more important than life in South Korea. For almost 60 years almost all abortion was banned in South Korea, but the law was ignored. Now, because of the low birth rate and presumably the effect on the economy that it will logically have, the government says it will finally start enforcing the law.

"Activists say authorities turned a blind eye to abortions for decades until cracking down in recent years due to South Korea's low birthrate. " (ABC News)

It's too bad the motivation for protecting life isn't... protecting life.

If you live in the U.S. you've probably seen this commercial, or at least heard about it. Sad images of poor animals in shelters, trying to tug at the heartstrings of viewers to compel them to call up and give a donation to the ASPCA. For the record, I'm not against preventing animal cruelty, not at all. What seems odd to me though is the way that advertisements like this are made and plastered all over television in order to solicit contributions to keep animals out of shelters, but commercials calling for an end to cruelty to humans before they are born are practically non-existent. 

Most people would agree that people are more important than animals, so why is it that we are being told, essentially, that humans aren't as important as dogs. That they're less than dogs and not worth the money that would be spent to save them. It's odd, to say the least.

I was listening to a new podcast called "International Waters" last night. (It's sort of a US vs. UK comedians quiz show. After hearing it I don't really think it's that great, but that's beside the point.)

There was one part where they were talking about the "No-Kill" movement in Los Angeles and whether it was about not killing dogs or not killing people (it's the first one). It was funny at first, and it was meant as a joke I'm sure, but then I started to think that it's actually sort of true in a creepy way... Clip from "International Waters"

The CEO of the Lubbock, TX Planned Parenthood Association,  Tony Ray Thornton, has been arrested for indecent exposure. Is anybody really surprised? This is a man that works for a business that kills children. Do you really think he has the moral discretion to not do something like this?

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -The CEO and President of the Planned Parenthood Association of Lubbock has been arrested for exposing himself in public. Lubbock police say Tony Thornton, 56, was arrested just before 3:30 Monday afternoon at the baseball fields inside of Mackenzie Park.

He was arrested for indecent exposure and transported to the Lubbock County Detention Center where he remained until 11 a.m. Tuesday, when he posted a bond of $750.

According to a receptionist who answered the telephone at Planned Parenthood's office Tuesday afternoon, Thronton was out of the office for the entire day. Tuesday evening, KCBD NewsChannel 11 went to Thornton's home, but he did not answer the door.
