Planned Parenthood Reverses Position On Inspections On Abortionists
— Ace

In Delaware, where they'd once fought such horrible burdens, they now support them.

In Delaware, where Gosnell was also known to perform his gruesome practices, even Democrats have introduced such legislation. Shockingly, they insist that the primary purpose of their bill is to regulate podiatrists and dentists. There should be little doubt in people’s minds that more human beings are killed by abortionists than foot doctors!

Planned Parenthood in Delaware supports the legislation, which is a good indication they are on the ropes. While the legislation is part of Gosnell’s legacy, Kermit Gosnell himself is a legacy of Planned Parenthood, which fought against this type of legislation in Pennsylvania and other states. Had such legislation been enacted, Gosnell would have been behind bars years ago.

It's useful to compare the Democrats' position here to their general position on regulation of any other industry.

No matter what the regulation is, they generally support it (except in one case). They always seem to think that government regulations, inspections, and paperwork-compliance creates a better, more hygienic, and more moral industry.

Except here. In this one case, they find regulation, inspection, and paperwork-compliance unduly burdensome.

In the case of one industry and one industry only, they accept the general GOP brief that government interference is burdensome and saps the vitality of an industry.

With abortion, they support the sort of hardcore "Wild West" strong-form libertarian laissez-faire let-people-work-it-out-and-let-the-market-decide regime they decry as "extremist" in any other context.

It seems that there's only one industry where they are comfortable pursuing this growth-at-all-costs strategy.

Well, two.  But good luck getting them on board with tort and legal reform.

I think part of the reason the Dems couldn't even defend Gosnell in any way is because he was making a freaking fortune off of the abortions.

I think they said he was making 1.8 million a year. So they couldn't play the oh-our-abortion-mills-are-underfunded card in this case.

It was clear that this guy was cutting all costs and acting illegally which resulting in the deaths of at least 7 women and countless babies.

Actually, you are giving them too much credit.

They support abortion because they personally don't want to be "burdened" with children and because they believe the untermenschen are having too many children and hurting baby Gaia.

"A pro-life group that monitors the use of cells from babies victimized by abortions is today highlighting a biotech company, Senomyx, which it says produces artificial flavor enhancers using aborted fetal cell lines to test their

The group Children of God for Life is calling for a public boycott of major food companies partnering with Senomyx.

Debi Vinnedge, the director of the pro-life organization, tells LifeNews.com today that, in 2010, her group wrote to Senomyx CEO Kent Snyder and pointed out that moral options for testing their food additives could and should be used. But when Senomyx ignored her letter, the group  wrote to the companies Senomyx listed on their website as “collaborators” warning them of public backlash and threatened boycott. They included food giants PepsiCo, Kraft Foods, Campbell Soup, Solae and Nestlé. (See update below.)

“The company’s key flavor programs focus on the discovery and development of savory, sweet and salt flavor ingredients that are intended to allow for the reduction of MSG, sugar and salt in food and beverage products,” the Senomyx web site says. “Using isolated human taste receptors, we created proprietary taste receptor-based assay systems that provide a biochemical or electronic readout when a flavor ingredient interacts with the receptor.” 


My understanding is that Campbell has now severed ties with Senomyx but the others have not.

22 Except here.
And in Canada (specifically Ontario) private, for-profit abortion clinics that charge twice as much for an abortion as the provincially-mandated fee that they're supposed to charge are allowed to operate even though it is a 'service' available in hospitals, but if you wanted to open a private, for-profit dialysis clinic that only bills the same fee that a hospital charges "Medicare" for dialysis (and not twice as much), your dialysis clinic will be closed down because that's a "bad" private clinic.

Contrast with their general position vis a vis other medical matters.  Take, for example, their support for the FDA as against the drug companies.  Abortion is both a mundane, unexceptional medical procedure, or extraordinary and sui generis, depending upon the rhetorical or legal situation.

I don't think we're eating aborted baby cells. It sounds like they use them for product testing. Not that I think that is OK, but I was a bit freaked out when I started reading that they were using aborted baby cells for flavoring.

And I am seriously puzzled how they can get what they need from aborted babies to create the artificial taste receptors, at what age in the womb do those form?

So, I'm going to go with mostly a ginned up outrage unless I see more facts.

OT-

I need someone to follow me around 24/7 and stop me from ever seeing Obama talk about energy ever again. 'Cause O...M...G...

He starts off, by talking about how there were all there ideas being put forward during his presidential election, like "Drill, Baby, Drill" - and then derisively points out how none of that happened. (When he and his political allies were in charge!!!!) Then he talks about how proud he is about the progress HIS administration has made toward energy independence!! (Huh?) Without actually outlining what any of this progress actually consisted of. Then pointed fingers at government "inertia" for why not much has happened (after just claiming he was proud of the progress).

THEN, he talks about how our greatest energy resource is "in our own back yard" (wait for it...) - "our ingenuity!" I expected that to lead into a call for "green energy", but it really didn't. Instead, he actually proclaimed the inevitability of using more oil, and that we would have to produce more domestically. (Huh? This is after making fun of "Drill, Baby, Drill", remember!!!)

He said these new ingenious methods of producing more oil domestically would take a long time (beyond even the president after him), but then proclaimed the goal of reducing our dependence by 1/3 in ten years (the time-period he just said that we wouldn't have the answer in yet). All while lamenting about how every persident since Nixon claims that they're going to do something, but don't.

He gave no actual plan for accomplishing the new goal, and - to a degree that shocked even me - and I have real low expectations - lied his f-ing ass off about how he hadn't essentially shut down offshore drilling in the Gulf. For cryin' out loud, I've seen the unemployed oil workers interviewed, and heard about the irreplacable deep water rigs that have left - permanently.

Short answer, yes.  Is it not mind-numbing to think of what is being done with the corpses of these children?  And it is defended all day long, because the Leftists have managed to convince enough brain-dead citizens that abortion is tied to the sexual liberation of women, and is nothing more than a wart removal process.

It's vital to the interest of the Left to keep abortion going strong.  Same as with the 10-10 people; the only way for them to reach their goals is to exterminate a massive amount of the population.  They have not yet been able to do this in the United States due to the populace being armed to the teeth,  but they have devised other methods for putting a dent in the damage being dealt to Mother Gaia.

Fifty million in America alone since '73.

<blockquote>I think part of the reason the Dems couldn't even defend Gosnell in any way is because he was making a freaking fortune off of the abortions.</blockquote>

 

To be fair, the oversight of Gosnell was relaxed under both Governors Ridge (Republican) and Rendell (Democrat) after Casey (ardent pro-life Democrat).  They’re not defending Gosnell because defending him and their true moral views would keep the horror in the public eye to the extent that it has been in the public eye.  They’re also not defending him –stating that it was ‘not abortion’ – to avoid the rather obvious fact that there is a mere legal distinction but no moral difference between what Gosnell did and procedures that they support as a matter of Constitutional right.  The facts are that Gosnell held himself out to be a Doctor performing abortions, and he performed legal abortions routinely, and the women whose babies were murdered sought Gosnell to provide an abortion.  Gosnell simply performed a kind of abortion procedure that lacked legal sanction among others which were quite legal, and the legal prohibitions for the kind of prohibited abortions performed by Gosnell are through no efforts of the feminists and Left.  It was the very efforts of the Left and feminists  and the implicit political threats that they wielded in Pennsylvania that made Gosnell possible under an umbrella of purposeful neglect.

If you read a feminist blog discussing abortion in any context not related to Gosnell, it is abundantly clear that the only moral question to be asked is whether the “host” currently welcomes her “parasite.”  Once that question is answered, the matter has been definitively resolved.  Their faux outrage at Gosnell is a simple, collective act of bad faith to the extent that he was mentioned at all.

Seminar Callers? The radio equivalent of trolls? They actually have troll schools where they teach zombies to get past a call screener, get on the air, and then robotically repeat talking points at the host. Rush is pretty patient with them most of the time. Tries to get them out of their robot mode. Levin is not so patient with them. Rush has a whole parody made up for them.

 so is "using taste rectors to test flavors" not gruesome? Cause I'm thinking that we could all go down to the morgue and use the fat from the dead to make soap. Why waste it, right?

I'm not sciency, but it seems to me that taste receptors in humans develop and change over time. It's proven that the older you are the less you taste certain things. And why would cells from a dead person (baby or otherwise) still fire when stimulated? But, if they do, why would you want baby cells anyway? I would imagine, especially if you are testing products like soft drinks and sweets, that you'd want cells from around 18 years old. At that point, just get them from the dead who donate their organs, surely a tongue would be included in that list.

The whole thing strikes me as more of a "because we can." Assholes.

Indeed.  As an acquaintance of mine once said, "it isn't murder because I can't see it," vis-a-vis abortion.

Out of sight, out of mind, and no responsibility.  That's the American way in this era, and why I don't believe we will bounce back from the economic cliff.  We haven't even the moral fortitude to stand up and scream "STOP!!!" over a literal mountain of infant corpses.  How the flaming hell are we going to convince a majority of the population to sacrifice their government largesse?

I was thinking about this the other day.  All legalizing abortion did was take the back-alley guys, give them white coats, and legitimize them.  I think most legitimate doctors, even pro-choice ones, personally do not ever want to be involved in this field.

I would guess that a lot of these guys either were flunkies out of med schools, graduated from dubious med schools, or have very mixed records in medical practice which lead them to go into this field.

114 The thing with abortion is that any woman who seriously considers murdering her child probably shouldn't have children anyway.

Here is one way to make a conservative:  take one liberal college grad, give him a job that pays enough that he actually has to pay taxes, build credit score, buy a house (without government assistance), have kids, go to PTA meeting an realize how crazy your kids' teachers are, spend 2-3 hours per day teaching your kids what they should have learned in school but they couldn't because the teachers spend too much time on the kids who don't speak English........The list goes on but I was already conservative by the time I bought my house.  I never really was liberal, I just thought I was because it was branded as the cool way to be in school.

And Senomyx has come under fire for other issues too concerning their food additives.  Senomyx has identified the receptors in the mouth responsible for sensing bitter taste (nature’s way of warning us against ingesting poison) and developed a chemical additive to knock out these receptors..."

141 I got two reasons why I haven't rolled over.

1. Not much for surrendering. Say what you will about the Japanese during WWII, I loved the fact that on the battlefield they'd rather die than surrender or loose.

2. The thought of EoJ's Day of the Rope scenario gives me a hard-on with an inescapable gravity well.

142 ""I feel sorry for all our brave young men and women who died in Iraq and Afghanistan. They went because their country told them to, they paid the price for Freedom and the country they did it for isn't worth two fistfuls of shit.""


I have been thinking that for years. The whole fucking freedon thing is an illusion. We haven't been free for fucking years.  There is not one area of life that is not regulated, taxed, or controlled.

143 Last night I was reading some articles and I read that the rebels are getting the oil rights and if the rebels get the oil rights and the rebels are al k da then what the heck was the point of being in Afghanistan then?   I am figuring that I have this wrong and you guys will explain it to me cause it is downright depressing.

Better to get it over with, isn't it, and rebuild?

That sounds too close to those lefties who sound utopian one minute, then nihilist the next.

Remember what Bill Whittle said about The Remnant.

Actually, having strict standards for abortion clinics is a good idea.

(As long as they issue waivers to the right people.)

The important issue in any election is, which candidate supports the human right of womyn having full control over their basic bodily functions, such as diet, excercise, and fetal deadness.

All that other stuff, like the economy, foreign policy, government debt? Meh.

You are so right.  Does anyone here think Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer would have ever been elected if not for their abortion stance.  Abortion has totally fucked up this country.  This one issue has decided who a lot of our representatives are and probably 100% of who we have in the courts.

147 I personally believe African Americans (and Americans in general) would be better off if such large numbers of babies weren't being unceremoniously killed.

Well then, let's make up a ceremony.

148 Empire of Jeff al-Amriki, I am going to submit your wife's name to Jon Stewart so that he can hold another Play Nice Rally. Only this time he will call it "The Annual Mrs. Empire of Jeff Don't Use the Word C*nt Road Rally and Stem Cell Bake-Off". I just think that your wife's accurate depiction of Joy Butthair should be rewarded and memorialized.

149 I was just making the point in that there are many bad people out there who think solely about themselves. We are in a "me-first" era. Also, it'd be hard to grow up in a home where the mom and dad feels that their kid is expendable.

So your point is these children are better off dead than alive, but only if they aren't born yet and are outside their mother.  If they were born, then we have a duty to protect them.

I could understand the position if you didn't believe a baby was alive until it magically exited the birth canal, but that isn't really your argument.

150 78 so is "using taste rec[ep]tors to test flavors" not gruesome? Cause I'm thinking that we could all go down to the morgue and use the fat from the dead to make soap whip up a big ol' batch of Soylent Green. Why waste it, right?

I hear you, I'm just saying it's frustrating, and the odds actually do look insurmountable.

I don't know if it's defeatist to start planning for what happens when things go belly up, but that's where my thoughts linger these days.

152 "Could you imagine the outrage of someone actually called any of the women on the View, besides Hassleback, a c*nt?" In fairness, I'm not convinced that one of those women (not naming names, but starts with Whoop and ends with Pee) even has a c*nt. Either smokes a lot or has lots of testosterone in her system. Just sayin'

155 Do you wonder why this feels so overwhelming and oppressive and, 'inevitable'?
Because that is their strategy. 
Don't let it work.  Please.

The commie leftist bastids are doing Cloward/Piven on steroids.
We have the irritating, infuriating, unique obligation to get out of our comfort zones and actually DO THINGS with our TIME and MONEY that we DON'T LIKE because evil bastards are attempting to usurp our country and our way of life. I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't see any other place on the planet that is better, and therefore, worth fighting to change.
Does it piss me off?  Yes.
But, is there really any other choice but to find ways to  TAKE ACTION to combat the attempted coup?  I have a few young kids in my extended family that are going to ask questions one day.  I want to have some plausible, responsible reply to the inevitable question:  what did you guys DO about it when all this was happening?

It's useful to compare the Democrats' position here to their general position on regulation of any other industry.

No matter what the regulation is, they generally support it (except in one case). They always seem to think that government regulations, inspections, and paperwork-compliance creates a better, more hygienic, and more moral industry.

Except here. In this one case, they find regulation, inspection, and paperwork-compliance unduly burdensome.

It's big business.  Millions of dollars are riding on it. Drugs, people, it's all up for grabs.

And you are a radical and extremist for pointing this out, as am I.

159 Don't forget that they don't want to regulate voting either. Not exactly an industry in our case, but definately one in theirs.

160 Don't think of it as 'accepting defeat'.

Think of it as finally learning to play the long game.  Instead of wasting our energy and resources saving something that can't be saved, we accept the national DNR order and focus on building our own seeds and roots.  Then, when they try to spread their 'replacement' around, we wait for the inevitable failure...and re-emerge later as a viable, superior alternative.

It may take a while, and it will come at great cost.  But it's what our opposition has been doing for generations, and it's well past time we adapted accordingly.

161 Well, FWIW, I agree with a lot of the commentary here, and I'm inclining to the "burn that Mother down" school of thought.

I've been an activist since Goldwater- essays, phone calls, letters to editors. Bumper stickers. I really thought that with the InterToobs we were going places- like more education and enlightenment.

Turns out we just got to go to Hell faster...

2. voter ID
