    Most people don't understand what happens for a third term abortion either. It usually isn't the mother deciding she doesn't want a child after 6 or more months of pregnancy - it's when a doctor tells them that there are serious complications that make them look for one.

    Slate had an article written by a woman who had one, and it wasn't regret that made her do it - she was actively trying to have a baby. But when the doctor told her that an unusual condition was detected in the womb (and these things are typically unable to be seen until the third trimester) that increased her risk of dying in childbirth, and that the child would almost certainly be dead before his second birthday after a life of drowning in his own saliva - with an outside chance of making it to about 6, if they were very unlucky. Even then, they would never develop enough to even speak, and the only memory they would likely take to the grave would be pain, then things start to look different. Her own words were that the two most important gifts a mother can give to her child are life and peace, and she was forced to pick just one - because having either prevented them from having the other.

    And this is my rebuttal to anyone who wants to claim that a miracle might happen...

    One - God does not provide miracles according to our designs, but his own.

    Two - If a miracle is indeed called for, we aren't stopping it.

    To think otherwise strikes me as a toxic mixture of hubris and faithlessness, at least in someone who professes to believe.

    Well that was disturbing. They almost had a news discussion. Poor Joel.

    Fox guest on the rise of anti-Semitism since the election of Trump: "'Jews will not replace us' was the chant in Charlottesville" in August 2017, and just the other day the president essentially said they were fair"

    Fox then suddenly cut to commercial.

    It is funny that isolationists use Iraq as an example of why intervention doesn't work when in reality it did. The problem was it was so terribly planned and the follow up so awful of coyrse it was shit.

    Or to put it simply. If your going to do something, do it properly.

    Trump Calls FBI ‘Scum,’ Takes Credit For ‘Sick’ Immigrant Plan In Off-The-Wall Rally

    President Donald Trump ranted for nearly one and a half hours in Wisconsin on the same night as the White House Correspondents Dinner. I'm sure the brave, hardworking men and women at the Bureau got a kick out of being called scum by their Commander-in-Chief. Don't hold your breath waiting for cowardly ass Republicans to rebuke Trump for what he said.

    Defeating the Iraqi army militarily is hardly some great accomplishment to hang our hats on given the massive disparity in quality of the forces and firepower involved, the hard part was always going to be how to rebuild the country afterwards. Realistically though, there weren't any good options to fill the power vacuum that Saddam's downfall would leave, his main opponents had always been the pro-Iranian fundamentalists and they were hardly steady hands to steer the ship of state. The idea that there was somehow this massive silent majority of pro-Western liberal thinkers yearning to be free of oppressive rule but who would gladly sign up to serve American corporate interests was a pipe dream, just like it was in every other country we've fought in.

    So in the past 72 hours, two hate crimes in California from domestic terrorists based on religious bigotry. A white Islamophobe drove into a crowd hoping to hit Muslims, and little anti-Semitic twit went to shoot up a synagogue.

    As much as Trump has been tweeting, he hasn't commented on either tragedy, because of course he wouldn't. He's busy spreading hate against both groups so these sorts of tragedies happen. (We all know his anti-Islamic history, but he resumed spreading George Soros conspiracies yesterday.)

    In fact, conservatives are blaming Ilhan Omar because of course they are.

    They're blaming Rep. Omar for a guy driving a car into a crowd hoping to kill Muslims? Was she in the crowd and ran before he got the car there?

    Because even that wouldn't make sense.

    They're blaming for the anti-semitic shooting. And I'll sure they'll blame her for the islamaphobic attack too.

    On this date in 2015, 2016, 2017, as well as 2018, "Crazy/Stupid Republican of the Day" published profiles of George Cleveland, from the North Carolina House of Representatives who we still think looks like Carl from Pixar’s “Up”, but is decidedly far less lovable, in our eyes. Cleveland has been allowed to run for office virtually unopposed in every election since 2002, and while he has missed a large percentage of the votes in the North Carolina House, he has turned up for some of the most notorious pieces of legislation to cross the desk of North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory the past few years. Cleveland has supported the state constitution having a ban on same sex marriage, blocked minimum wage increases, restricted early voting, blocked the Medicaid Expansion in the Tar Heel State, and voted for the notorious “motorcycle safety” bill that through amendments put forth by Republicans, became one of the harshest anti-abortion laws in the country. Cleveland also has gone to the floor of the North Carolina House to pitch ideas for illegal immigration, like profiling potential undocumented immigrants based on what they’re wearing, tried forcing the owner of the North Carolina State Fair to allow people to carry guns at the event, against his wishes, and once argued that there aren’t actually any people who are extremely poor in North Carolina, it’s just an illusion created by statisticians who redefine what poverty is (for the record, 8% of North Carolina lives in extreme poverty, and 17.5% live below the poverty line, in total). George Cleveland was one of several North Carolina Republicans who reacted to South Carolina’s state legislature removing the Confederate flag from state grounds by instead voting for SB 22, to make it HARDER to remove Confederate iconography from around the state. Cleveland also supported two pieces of legislation that were created by the North Carolina GOP to stick it to the LGBT community, voting for SB 2, a bill aimed at allowing for state officials to refuse to perform marriage duties based on their “sincerely held religious beliefs” and sponsoring the now-infamous disaster that is HB 2, which isn’t just written to force people to use bathrooms according to the sex they were born as, but it was written to specifically allow people of “religious faith” to use it as a justification to discriminate against the gay community in North Carolina. He was, of course, one of many North Carolina Republicans who responded to the loss in the governor’s race by Republican incumbent Pat McCrory by trying to supplant democracy by stripping many of the main powers of governance away from incoming Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper. Cleveland followed that up by co-sponsoring a bill with fellow CSGOPOTD Michael Speciale and Larry Pittman of the North Carolina state legislature to attempt to eliminate the prohibition on seceding from the United States that was written into the North Carolina state constitution after the Civil War to reiterate the fact that the Tar Heel State should totally not do something that stupid ever again. Well, George Cleveland wants the option to start another American Civil War back on the table, apparently.

    Cleveland won re-election in 2018 after surviving the GOP Primary with but 52% of the vote, and then won with 58% of the vote in the general election. For those keeping track, George Cleveland is now 81 years old, and has used his current term in office to co-sponsor legislation to ban abortion at not just 20… but 13 weeks, and the completely over-the-top anti-choice bill known as the “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act”.

    Conservatives don’t make sense anyway. Haven’t made sense in years, maybe decades.

    The available studies suggest the majority of third trimester abortions are not due to reasons of fetal health/ the health of the mother.

    https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/...0.1363/4521013

    Limiting the discussion to stories about serious medical complications allows abortion opponents to agree to carefully established medical exceptions while pushing for a ban in other situations.

    The Times cartoon is even worse when you consider the depiction of Trump as a Jewish blind man. So he’s being led by dog Netanyahu.

    It looks like the study you provided lists as alternate reasons to fetal anomaly or life endangerment:

    • Not knowing where to go for an abortion
    • Difficulty getting to the abortion facility
    • Raising money for procedure and related costs
    • Difficulty securing insurance coverage


    Basically all things that are results of GOP policy.

    Tell me again how your party is pro-life.
