Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family.
"Pro-life" is not pro-life. "Pro-life" is pro-birth and anti-choice. They don’t care about the child once it’s out of the womb. I am so sorry for that couple’s loss and the 10 terrible days of suffering that tiny body had to endure. There is nothing any pro-birth/anti-choice person can ever say or do that will make this and actions like this okay. Absolutely nothing.

Hey, gun nuts and others on the right: do you hear yourselves talking?
When I Google News search the phrase “religious persecution,” the entire first page is full of stories with the phrase “Christian persecution.” And one story about a guy who apparently believes in a Star Wars religion. Nothing on the first page about Jews being persecuted or executed. Nothing about Muslims being harassed or attacked. Christian persecution and Star Wars. I had more faith in you, Google.
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave,
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
Why are people so shocked and appalled when the United States tries to play World Police? In this country’s 237 years of official existence, over 200 years have been spent in some sort of war. We have an acceptance of violence not replicated in any other first world nation. For goodness sake, our national anthem is an homage to war.
Now if Canada started bombing people in the name of freedom, that would be news.

Gee, I wonder why there are all these Occupy Wall Street protests. What could they possibly want?

Waiting for Fox News to say “Obama eats white babies.” Otherwise, this pic is absolutely adorable.
