Abortionist to Pregnant Woman “I Mean, if for Some Reason that Doesn’t Happen, Then We Have to Take Them out in Pieces…”
Glenwood Gardens in Bakersfield, CA has a “policy” of not allowing their staff of not performing CPR. That is not a typo. 87-year-old Lorraine Bayless was allowed to die while waiting for medics to arrive. 9-1-1 was on the phone with a nurse after the woman collapsed:
In the seven-minute, 16-second recording, the nurse told the dispatcher it was against the facility’s policy for employees to perform CPR on residents.
With every passing second, Bayless’ chances of survival were diminishing. The dispatcher’s tone turned desperate.
“Anybody there can do CPR. Give them the phone please. I understand if your facility is not willing to do that. Give the phone to that passerby,” the dispatcher said. “This woman is not breathing enough. She is going to die if we don’t get this started.”
I am not going to take the tack that this has something to do with Obamacare, as it clearly does not. But it does go to the fact that as a society we are getting closer and closer to saying that the elderly, the sick, and the disabled are disposable.
This is part and parcel of the violence we see in this country. Human life is no longer considered valuable.
We can talk about gun control until the cows come home, but it won’t really help what is ailing this society. I know very few people who are so militant about gun rights that they feel certain restrictions should be placed on who is able to purchase a gun. I know that some exist, but they are the minority. Most will agree that the mentally ill and people with criminal histories shouldn’t be allowed to have guns. The disagreements come on what other restrictions should be in place for law-abiding citizens. We have laws in place that should protect us from criminals and the insane. Those laws should be followed.
What we never really discuss after a tragedy as what occurred in Newtown, is where we place the value of human life in the grand scheme of things in our daily lives and our society. I am not even going to into the abortion discussion, because most people are immovable on this topic, and will remain that way, while there is always room for an epiphany, those are usually very personal episodes.
What I would like to talk about is the role of life in general. Recently a young mother was pregnant for the second time. She says that she had no idea that she was so. One night while on a family outing at the circus, she grabs her daughter and goes to use the lady’s room. She sent a text to another family member to come get her daughter due to stomach issues. She then proceeds to give birth in that bathroom stall. She leaves her newborn son in the toilet, surrounded by his own blood and presumably his placenta, and goes home. The baby boy was found approximately 90 minutes later up to his neck in water and at a temperature of 85 degrees. Thank heavens the little boy is doing fine and is said to be developing normally.
Jessica Blackham, now 26, has given up her parental rights to the baby. I am sure by now he has been adopted, presumably to a loving family that realizes how precious this little boy really is.
Jessica has been judged in a court of law and has been sentenced. One year of house arrest, three years of probation, counseling, and faces random drug tests. Once she finishes her one year of house arrest, her five-year prison will be forgotten. So let me get this straight, she left a helpless newborn baby in a toilet full of blood and gets no jail time.
‘Miss Blackham, you are not standard fare up here and I think your attorney’s assessment that you will not be back is accurate,’
So said the judge who normally deals with crack and meth heads, reports show it took the judge a full couple of minutes to sentence her. He thought about her sentence that carefully.
While it is true that she had no prior criminal record that doesn’t mean that absolves her from her crimes. She left that baby to die. Her own flesh and blood. She says that she has no memory of giving birth and denies even knowing she was pregnant. Now, didn’t she gain any weight during this pregnancy? Most woman gain somewhere between 20 and 30 pounds. Didn’t anyone else in her family notice that? If she was hiding weight gain, wouldn’t that fly in the face of her testimony? Didn’t she feel that baby kick? Did she not realize that she wasn’t getting her periods anymore? While it is true that some women will have some bleeding during their entire pregnancy, that is pretty rare. I mean this is a woman who was pregnant once before and was 25 at the time of the birth.
Is it really so hard to believe that our children are growing up without a moral compass? Is is really so hard to understand that they don’t see life as sacred and precious? This judge didn’t and he is a grown man. This woman didn’t and she is already a mother of another child. The only people who seemed to understand the importance of the that baby boy’s life was the cleaning crew who found him and the doctors who saved his life that early morning. This baby has been further dehumanized by this sentance. His mother threw him away like he was trash.
A baby was left to die in toilet filled with blood, other bodily fluids, his own after birth, and water and the punishment is that she gets to sit in the comfort of her own home for a year. She can watch whatever television show she wants, she will sleep in her own bed, she can use the internet, she can have guests over. Heck I guess if she wanted to she could get pregnant again if she is so inclined. That isn’t a punishment. Especially when you consider that she lives in state that has a law that if you leave your newborn at a hospital, church, or other safe environment, you will not be prosecuted. She could have picked up this baby and dropped him at any number of places and choose instead to leave him in filth to die.
You can take away more and more rights on gun ownership in this country all you want, until you change this, it won’t accomplish a damn thing.

The real reason is that most don’t care about human life. We are expendable.

The 15 worst backyard hazards include swings, slides, monkey bars, tree houses, trampolines, pools, and anything else which involves moving around and, well, playing. Much safer to sit alone in front of that computer screen. Oops — scratch that. It’s not healthy to be an asocial loner, either. It’s even worse that being [gasp] fat.
Another option: Just give up on childhood altogether and start fornicating. Some UK doctors have no problem with giving contraceptives to 11 year-old girls:
The number of pre-teenage girls on the Pill has increased fivefold in the past decade, shocking figures reveal.
Last year doctors prescribed the oral contraceptive to more than 1,000 girls aged 11 and 12, usually without their parents’ knowledge.
Another 200 aged between 11 and 13 were given long-term implanted or injectable contraceptive devices on the NHS.
Family campaigners said the figures showed how children were being sexualised at an ever younger age and raised disturbing questions about the prevalence of underage sex.
Although the age of consent in Britain is 16, GPs are allowed to prescribe the Pill to children if they believe an underage girl is mature enough to have sex.
And under the laws of patient confidentiality, parents have no right to be told if their children are being given the Pill.
More cultural slip-sliding away:
Many college students don’t know, or really care, what “plagiarism” means. And they do it an awful lot.
Go ahead, girls, embrace your inner, and outer, slut. It’s liberating to denigrate and objectify yourself.
. . . one girl-child at a time. Fighting the power, and pulling a few strings:
“There were some difficult times,” Mr Fu conceded. “We were chased around and we had to live like beggars. But I never thought about doing otherwise. I’m aware that many people do not want their daughters, but we have a decent respect for life. In China, we think that when you have a child it is like dropping a piece of your own body from you, and we never considered the other options,” he said.
[. . .]
“When they eventually found out I had seven daughters, they tried to tear down our house, but fortunately I have good connections: my uncle is the head of the village,” said Mr Fu. “They also wanted to fine me 600,000 yuan (£60,000). But I refused to pay them. Eventually they knocked down just a small part of my old house and I paid them 2,000 yuan,” he added.
Mr Fu said that he knew several other people in his village who also had more than one child and that he had already encouraged his eldest daughter, who has recently born him a grandson, to continue to procreate. “I told her: no matter what the cost, she should have more kids,” he said.
Mr. Fu isn’t the only one. If he were, there wouldn’t be an unexplained jump between the 1990 and 2000 census counts:
Examining China’s census figures, Mr Liang came across discrepancies that proved the subterfuge. “In 1990, the national census recorded 23 million births. But by the 2000 census, there were 26 million ten-year-old children, an increase of three million,” he said. “Normally, you would expect there to be fewer ten-year-olds than newborns, because of infant mortality,” he added.
His findings suggest that the one-child policy may not have the grim consequences that have been widely predicted.
Let us pray that’s true. Read the rest.

David Horowitz, Editor-in-Chief of News Real Blog, spoke Monday night at UCSD to offer balance of opinion as the Muslim Student Association(MSA) sponsored Israeli Apartheid Week: A Call to Boycott, Divest, and Sanction Israel – May 10th – May 13th, 2010 on campus. Horowitz received a question from a student Jimena Imad Musa Ahmal Bahiri, who seems intent on showing Horowitz as spreading false information about connections between MSA’s and Jihad terrorist networks. The entire exchange, seen in the video here , is fascinating. It is Horowitz final question to the student, however, that uncovers a profound hatred in the young woman:
Horowitz: If you don’t condemn Hamas, obviously you support it. Case closed. I have had this experience at UC Santa Barbara, where there were 50 members of the Muslim Students Association sitting right in the rows there. And throughout my hour talk I kept asking them, will you condemn Hizbollah and Hamas. And none of them would. And then when the question period came, the president of the Muslim Students Association was the first person to ask a question. And I said, ‘Before you start, will you condemn Hizbollah?’ And he said, ‘Well, that question is too complicated for a yes or no answer.’ So I said, ‘Okay, I’ll put it to you this way. I am a Jew. The head of Hizbollah has said that he hopes that we will gather in Israel so he doesn’t have to hunt us down globally. For or Against it?
MSA member: For it.
As you will see in the video, the young woman appears to have spent much if not all of her life in America. She has little if any discernible accent when she speaks. She has been taught to feel this anger and hatred. It seems highly unlikely to me she would be interested in truly hearing Mr. Horowitz’s opinions. Rather she uses the opportunity to reinforce her own beliefs. Credit her with honesty for her willingness to state on the record she would support such a “goal.” If she were a wiser person she might find a future filled with violence against the Jews solves nothing. It will, however, assure more war and despair for future generations in the Middle East. How very sad.

The French may actually do something useful here. The Economist:
Unlike the headscarf ban, however, the upcoming law against the wearing of the burqa is not couched in terms of secularism. When a ban was first mooted, it was assumed that the legal basis for it would be French laïcité. Politicians soon realised, though, that to use this argument would be to accept that the burqa is a religious prescription of Islam. Most Muslim opinion-makers in France, including the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), an official body, and female Muslim ministers, such as Fadela Amara, reject this. The CFCM has clearly stated its “opposition to the practice on national territory”, although it also argues that a ban would stigmatise Islam.
Instead, the French are considering two grounds for outlawing the burqa, each of which—unlike laïcité—could potentially be applied in other countries. One is security, and the need to be identifiable at all times. The other is “dignity” and “equality between men and women”.
In our President Barack Obama’s cringe-inducing speech in Cairo he defended the right of women to wear the hijab, another version of a burka–even some of the American Left were appalled.
We’ll watch this one with interest. While Americans don’t want the government telling them what to wear, the debate about protecting the rights of women from cultural norms of other countries has already begun here.
