A women's clinic in Louisville, joined by Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, is in federal court on Wednesday morning to demand that a U.S. District judge strike down rules that the Kentucky government, led by its vocally anti-choice Republican governor, is trying to use to shutter the state's only remaining abortion provider.
To the Women of Kentucky:
If your man agrees that a woman must not have the right to choose whether she has a baby or not, tell him that his sex life from that day forward, is in his hands.
In a nation that already has a higher than average maternal death rate, ethnic rates that are 4 to 6 percent higher than the national average, we see increases. Maternal deaths are increasing and no doubt will continues in the face of LESS access to healthcare. Less access to affordable early detection and therapeutic abortion. Kentucky should be ashamed of its irresponsible decisions that affect women. That is totally discriminatory.
Although EMW retains its license for now, the Louisville clinic sees anti-choice protests almost daily, and requires assistance from volunteer escorts to enable patients to safely access the office.
Protests at the clinic made national headlines in late July, when Operation Save America (OSA), a fundamentalist Christian anti-choice group, descended on Louisville to launch city-wide demonstrations and a troubling campaign that included publicizing personal information about EMW employees.’’
Where is all the outrage on this forum against the Christian right and the violence (via physical intimidation and bodily harm) they employ on a daily basis against those women needing or wanting an abortion? What makes the Christian right any different than fascists, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, or Antifa and the violence they utilize?
Here is the reality: The Christian right’s violence is a direct reflection of the character of their God.
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction; jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving, control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

If the Christian right spent just half their efforts on children AFTER they were born; child hunger and poverty in the USA could be totally eliminated!
These “Fundamentalist Christians”, and the Republicans that they elect seem determined to take this country back-----back to the 19th Century!
I try to remain optimistic, but these idiots have just about convinced me that this country has passed it’s best days a long time ago, and now shows signs of sustained regression, choosing ignorance over enlightenment, preferring religious and political dogma over science and rational thinking.
It’s sad to see so many people’s desire for a new Dark Age. It’s terrifying when they have the political strength to make it happen.
You are right! The “Christian” Right has a lot in common with ISIS, Al-Quaeda, Wahabbi, and other fundamentalist terrorist organizations, and actually do more direct harm to America than all the others combined.
The last sentence I posted on another website is as follows:
…the ONLY difference between the Islamic fundamentalism of ISIS or Saudi Arabia’s Wahhabism and historic Christian fundamentalism is the point in time you are analyzing.
So killing an unborn child is the answer to this problem??? Huh???
Typical Liberal bilge. Right now we are finishing up the renovation of a 23 room hotel to be a women’s shelter. The James family has spent the last 10 years and a great deal of their time and money to help many young women keep their babies instead of making hamburger out of them, no doubt angering Planned Parenthood as they see the loss of those valuable organs they could sell on the open market.
Your screed is ridiculous. There is no violence against women on a daily basis, unless you count the violence against the pregnant women who are forced against their will to have abortions. Over 60% of women surveyed said that they were threatened by their sexual partner unless they got an abortion. This is something the Left will never own up to.
How lovely that you hide behind the word “choice” when what you are really doing is taking the life of an unborn child. Can you not find a better solution than that to help a women who is in need? There are over 6,000 ministries in this country to help women in problem pregnancies. Why not work with them to help women have their babies instead of terminating them?
As for hunger and poverty in the USA - the majority of people who suffer from these conditions are – ready for this? SINGLE WOMEN WITH CHILDREN!
Where are the fathers of those children? They are GONE because Playboy magazine and other media images have reduced sex to a game for the weekend and women to sexual toys for men. Real men do not use women like that and if they produce a child, they take responsibility for what they have done.
Until we end the constant media barrage aimed at young people which urges them to fornicate randomly, until we outlaw pornography and begin to teach children that they can actually control themselves and are not just animals who must give in to their urges, the illegitimacy rate in black communities will continue to be over 70 %. This is what LBJ wanted - a whole ethnic group completely dependent upon the government so as to insure the Democrat voting block forever.
This Witch Hunt is the continuing War on Women by Elite patriarchy which
is threatened always by women …
And it is male violence and criminal activity which keeps hold of this power and keeps it in place,
including rigged elections which became much more serious in 1965 and 1967 with the arrival
of hack-able computer voting machines and MSM’s use of large computers which gave them vast
new powers to call “winners” and “losers” of elections based on 1% or even less of the vote count.
Prior to the arrival of those large computers, they were only permitted to announce actual votes tallied.
It is a constitutionally protected medical treatment. If you don’t believe in saving the life of the women in your life that is up to you. You just can’t make that decision for others. That is between a person and their doctor and familty.
Killing a potential child a 3 month old fetus is in no more meaningful way,
human, than a door knob. But stupid humans are easily confused; and have an overriding instinct to breed
… and in 70 - 100 years, if they lived, they’d be gone and forgotten forever.
I’m sure you prefer your imaginary world view.
I believe in saving the life of both. Abortion doesn’t save anything. It destroys. Try looking up some of the testimonies by women who thought abortion was a life-saver and wound up deeply regretting it and filled with guilt over killing their child.
Why can’t you Liberals love life and try to protect the mother and the child?
Wrong. Just wrong.
There is a real credibility gap in your posted assessment and your professed love for women and children. And so you know I’m not a liberal… It really is more than a political issue, it might help if you expanded your knowledge on the subject because honestly that is no place of refuge in my opinion.
Every person’s life choices are different and we learn from them, some we regret as we should.
