U.S. Judge Rules Aborted Babies Aren’t ‘Human’ And Don’t Deserve Burial

In 2017 America, where neonatal surgeries can be performed on unborn infants in utero and prematurely born babies have been saved after spending only 22 weeks in the womb, a federal judge ruled that there is no legal ground for banning selective abortions based on special needs, gender or race, or requiring that the remains of children killed through abortion should be treated with dignity.

Last week, U.S. District Judge Tanya Walton Pratt struck down as unconstitutional several abortion laws in Kentucky and Indiana that ban elective abortions based on gender, race or genetic abnormalities such as Down syndrome, ruling such laws “directly contravene well-established law that precludes a state from prohibiting a woman from electing to terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability.”

On top of this restriction, Indiana had also enacted a policy requiring hospitals to dispose of aborted babies humanely via burial or cremation, rather than as biological waste tossed in dumpsters alongside dirty syringes and used urine bags.

Pratt, however, ruled it is unconstitutional to require hospitals to bury or cremate aborted fetal remains on the basis that the remains are not “human,” saying she could find no legal reason to require hospitals “to treat fetal remains in the same manner as human remains.”

“Stated otherwise, if the law does not recognize a fetus as a person, there can be no legitimate state interest in requiring an entity to treat an aborted fetus the same as a deceased human,” she wrote in her decision.

This ruling comes despite the basic and indisputable scientific fact that an unborn child is comprised of its own unique human DNA – rather than that of, say, a pigeon or a sea monkey – and is clearly alive in utero as evidenced by a distinct heartbeat and brain activity.

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill, who said Pratt’s ruling establishes “the path for genetic discrimination that once seemed like science fiction,” said he plans to appeal the decision to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago.

One has to wonder what she does with the evidence produced in court that she doesn’t like? 86 it or just call it irrelevant.

“Will the Defense please remove that evidence; it doesn’t fit my beliefs.”

Conflating insurance with health care

The big shouting match occurring in the House is purportedly over health care. What a barrel of horse piss.
First, everyone has health care, either through their insurance or via the ER at a hospital. What is being fought over in DC is who is going to control health INSURANCE. The Government of you, the citizen as to where, when and how you will buy and If YOU WILL BUY INSURANCE. Not whether the Government will tell you where, when and how much.

The obfuscation by both parties is disgraceful, telling people that they are going to lose health care.

Take It or Leave It: House to Vote on TrumpCare Tomorrow, POTUS Threatens to Walk Away if Bill Fails

Last night’s perceived “breakthrough” didn’t quite pan out as expected today. The House Freedom Caucus showed up at the White House this morning and declined to take President Trump’s final offer, and now it looks like exasperated Republican leaders have seen enough. Rather than allow negotiations to drag on interminably, there will be a vote. Tomorrow. And the chips will fall as they may. As Cortney reported earlier, President Trump has declared that if recalcitrant House Republicans vote with Nancy Pelosi to kill the American Health Care Act, he will walk away from the issue and allow Obamacare to remain in place.  That’s some real hardball, daring Republicans to defy him.  House GOP leaders say they’re ready to yank campaign funding away from members who cross Trump’s wishes, then place the blame squarely on the party’s hard-right flank:

Sources: House leadership threatens to pull bill to preserve , and then blame House @freedomcaucus for ObamaCare still being law.

Even if you dislike the bill — and I think some important changes (here are a few ideas) still must be made among the way — that assessment would be more or less accurate. Most of the Republican conference is reportedly livid at the Freedom Caucus, several of whose leaders co-sponsored a version of the AHCA when then-Congressman Tom Price introduced it in 2015. They believe the group constantly shifts goalposts and refuses to take ‘yes’ for an answer: [snip]

Remember when Ryan became speaker of the House, his first action was to give Obama everything he wanted in his budget. He then promised the Conservative faction a rework on a bill if they voted for it. They did and then Ryan reneged on his word. After that he ignored the Conservatives in all matters.

Ryan works hand in glove with the Chamber of Commerce (CoC) that never has been on the side of the American worker, from insurance to immigration.

How often do we use words and never think of how they LOOK as you sound them. Disney full length animated features such as “Song of the South” and “Dumbo” used visual puns one of my first was the crows asking if you ever heard a diamond ring while showing the image of a diamond ring. There are others.

Truly, only those with a well versed base in English beyond being able to spell the word are able to appreciate the twisting of meanings to arrive at such humor. Some say puns are the lowest form of humor; those that say such things more than likely have a lower level of language cognition.

Consider someone who is sad is said to be melancholy. They could be bordering on sever depression or just a bit weepy. How does the word melancholy ‘look’? Like this?meloncollie-02
