Nick Loeb told the Today Show that the embryos his ex-fiance wants to “destroy” are already life.

But, Modern Family actress, Sofia Vergara has accused Nick Loeb of being an opportunist and she wants the embryos they created as a couple to be “destroyed.”

Loeb filed motion for control of the embryos in August of last year, but the private matter turned public when he wrote about it a New York Times op-ed piece on April 29. “In my view, keeping them frozen forever is tantamount to killing them,” he wrote.

More from Loeb’s letter:

    “When we create embryos for the purpose of life, should we not define them as life, rather than as property? Does one person’s desire to avoid biological parenthood (free of any legal obligations) outweigh another’s religious beliefs in the sanctity of life and desire to be a parent? A woman is entitled to bring a pregnancy to term even if the man objects. Shouldn’t a man who is willing to take on all parental responsibilities be similarly entitled to bring his embryos to term even if the woman objects? These are issues that, unlike abortion, have nothing to do with the rights over one’s own body, and everything to do with a parent’s right to protect the life of his or her unborn child.”
    “In 2013, Sofía and I agreed to try to use in vitro fertilization and a surrogate to have children. We signed a form stating that any embryos created through the process could be brought to term only with both parties’ consent. The form did not specify — as California law requires — what would happen if we separated. I am asking to have it voided.”

Loeb then admits he had a girlfriend who had an abortion writing,

    “When I was in my 20s, I had a girlfriend who had an abortion, and the decision was entirely out of my hands. Ever since, I have dreamed about a boy at the age he would be now. Later, I was married for four years to a woman with whom I tried to have children, with help from a fertility specialist. The difficulties we had made me feel, more than ever, that the ability to create life was special. When she left me, as I was running for a seat in the Florida State Senate, my dreams of a family were shattered.”

After the couple broke up after four years together, Loeb said he asked Sofia for the embryos and said he, “offering to pay for all expenses to carry our girls to term and raise them.”

    “She has refused. Her lawyer, Fred Silberberg, has told reporters that she wants to keep the embryos “frozen indefinitely.” In my view, keeping them frozen forever is tantamount to killing them.”

He then told to the Today Show that two lives had already been created:

In the interview Loeb stated:

    You know – you know- we filed this back in October, this is not something that’s new.

    This has nothing to do with this at all.

    This has to do with bigger really moral you no legal or ethical concepts that are out there about lives that we’ve already created and nothing to do with anything else.

    It has nothing to do with whether it is her baby or a baby.

    Lives were already created.

    You know a lot of the question is why don’t you move on and meet somebody else and and no doubt I would love to do that.

    But doesn’t it matter that two lives have already been created?

    I wouldn’t just toss them aside – no different than a child that had been born.”

I came across this fascinating animated video series called Inside Pregnancy.

The fetal development series created by Baby Center is worth watching:

Provocative display links shootings of Blacks by police with abortion victims

Posted in Black Conservative, Black Genocide, Black Lives Matter, Black Pastor, CBR, Clenard Childress, Fetal Development, Fetal Pain, Police Abuse with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 18, 2015 by saynsumthn

A National pro-life group is teaming up with African American leaders to introduced a provocative new pro-life sign display entitled, “All Black Lives Matter.”

All Lives Matter

The signs, created by The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform (CBR), display images of abortion victims with various messages directed to the African American community and ask, where is the African-American community’s outrage over the hundreds of thousands of preborn black children butchered this year by the brutality of abortion?! Why isn’t the civil rights slogan “Don’t shoot” accompanied by the exhortation “Don’t abort”?

According to the group’s press release, the exhibit was inspired by the tragic series of encounters between black suspects and white police officers in which the suspects lost their lives while being taken into custody.

CBR said that they believes the rule of law requires that police officers who employ excessive force should be prosecuted, convicted and punished appropriately, “A young black man who raises his hands, shouting “Don’t shoot!” has a right to be apprehended unharmed,” they said.

CBR Dont Shoot Dont Abort

CBR also stated that a young black man restrained in a police choke-hold should never die of asphyxiation after declaring, “I can’t breathe.”

“The evidence is often in dispute, but where proven beyond a reasonable doubt, police brutality is an intolerable outrage — especially if racially motivated. But where is the African-American community’s outrage over the hundreds of thousands of preborn black children butchered this year by the brutality of abortion?! Why isn’t the civil rights slogan “Don’t shoot” accompanied by the exhortation “Don’t abort”? When will African-American religious and political leaders acknowledge that aborted babies can’t breathe either? A police choke-hold can be a form of torture, and abortion also tortures babies to death. As Lila Rose recently established in another of her brilliant Live Action videos, the abortion industry lies to mothers about fetal pain,” their release says.

CBR icant breathe abortionn prolife Al Lives Matter

More from the Press Release:

    The British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology reports in a review titled, “Fetal Pain: Implications for Research and Practice” (September 1999), that “… It is possible that the fetus can feel pain from 20 weeks and is caused distress from interventions as early as 15 or 16 weeks” (p 885). Brain structures activated by 16 weeks “… could be associated with unpleasant conscious experience” (p 885). Between 13 and 16 weeks is when “… it is likely that the fetus is aware of anything that is going on in its body …” (p 882). At eight weeks, “The fetus starts to make movements in response to being touched …” (p 882). More than 100,000 babies each year are aborted after 13 weeks (about 10% of the 1.1 million annual total). Approximately 17,000 are killed after 21 weeks (about 1.4% of the total).

    A large percentage of these babies are African-American and many are dying slow, agonizing deaths. Those who aren’t torn to pieces suffer excruciating heart attacks after being injected with lethal doses of digoxin or potassium chloride, the same poisons being used to stop the hearts of death row inmates (See Boston.com, “Shots Assist in Aborting Fetuses,” August 10, 2007.)

    The Orange County Register, January 24, 2015, published a story headlined “Justices to Review Drug for Execution,” which reported that the U.S. Supreme Court is examining the possibility that these drugs are causing inmates “intense” pain. The Los Angeles Times, on the same day, notes that an African-American inmate named Charles Warner recently exclaimed, “My body is on fire,” after receiving this lethal injection.

    The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is rightly dismayed to report (NAACP LDF Report “Death Row U.S.A.,” Summer 2013) that black inmates comprise 42% of death row prisoners. Why, then, do they strongly support the slaughter of the far greater numbers of African-American preborn children being executed with the same lethal injections?

    NAACP leader Julian Bond recently equated abortion rights with racially-related civil rights (“NAACP Leader: Right to Abort is Same as Right to Eat at Lunch Counter,” LifeNews.com, August 6, 2014). The NAACP is so intellectually dishonest concerning black genocide that its board refuses to permit any debate on any proposed resolution related to abortion and won’t even allow the public reading of such proposals.

CBR said they are teaming up with the Rev. Clenard Childress a black minister who is a member of their board and will be holding a press conference in Washington D.C to unveil the new display. Rev. Childress is founder of BlackGenocide.Org. Several other African-American pastors and pro-life activists will also present brief remarks.

As these abortion photos prove incontestably, abortion is an act of violence which kills a baby, and abortion is teaching an entire generation of young African-Americans to solve its problems by resorting to violence,” they said.

In addition, the group points out that the targeting of the African American community by Planned Parenthood’s “abortion care” has suppressed the black vote more effectively than poll taxes, literacy tests, voter I.D. requirements and Ku Klux Klan lynchings combined.

Abortion suppresses the Black Vote.”

CBR Abortion Surpresses Black Vote

These new signs are intended to stop this fratricidal atrocity,” says CBR, “CBR will collaborate with African-American anti-abortion leaders across the country to display them at middle schools, high schools, universities and churches with substantial black enrollment. Our African-American president has betrayed us. It is long past time for us to take matters into our own hands with an unavoidable witness against this great evil,” they said.

Planned Parenthood describes abortion and fetal development

Posted in Fetal Development, Planned Parenthood abortion description with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood has a page on their website which details fetal development; what women can expect at various points in their pregnancy.

Planned Parenthood week to week

Weeks 5–6

The embryo is less than 1/5 inch (4–5 mm) long.
A very basic beating heart and circulatory system develop.
Buds for arms and legs develop.
The neural tube begins forming. The neural tube will later form the brain, spinal cord, and major nerves.
The bud of a tail develops.
The umbilical cord begins developing.

Weeks 9–10

The embryo develops into a fetus after 10 weeks. It is 1–1.5 inches (21–40 mm) long.
The tail disappears.
Fingers and toes are longer.
The umbilical cord connects the abdomen of the fetus to the placenta. The placenta is attached to the wall of the uterus. It absorbs nutrients from the woman’s bloodstream. The cord carries nutrients and oxygen to the fetus and takes wastes away from the fetus.

Planned Parenthood also has pages that describe abortion, although in the most minimal way.

Planned Parenthood abortion

Aspiration abortion

D+E Abortion

Apparently, according to Planned Parenthood there are two main types of abortion:

PP in clinic and d+e abortion

In Clinic Abortion and D+E abortion.

There is more than one kind of in-clinic abortion procedure. The most common is called aspiration. It is also known as vacuum aspiration. Aspiration is usually used up to 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.

“D&E – dilation and evacuation – is another kind of in-clinic abortion. D&E is usually performed later than 16 weeks after a woman’s last period.”

________________________________________________________________

Let’s intertwine Planned Parenthood’s abortion descriptions with their fetal development descriptions:

______________________________________________

ASPIRATION Abortion as described by Planned Parenthood:

A speculum will be inserted into your vagina

Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

Your health care provider may inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

PP Fetal develop 7 to 8 weeks

The opening of your cervix may be stretched with dilators — a series of increasingly thick rods. Or you may have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and get bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix. Medication may also be used with or without the dilators to help open your cervix.

PP Fetal develop 9 to 10 weeks

You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection

A tube is inserted through the cervix into the uterus

PP Fetal develop11 to 12 weeks

Either a hand-held suction device or a suction machine gently empties your uterus

PP Fetal develop 13 to 14 weeks

Sometimes, an instrument called a curette is used to remove any remaining tissue that lines the uterus. It may also be used to check that the uterus is empty. When a curette is used, people often call the abortion a D&C — dilation and curettage.

An aspiration procedure takes about 5 to 10 minutes. But more time may be needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

________________________________________________________________________

Now, we’ll look at Planned Parenthood’s description of a D+E abortion:

Exactly what is a D+E abortion?

Planned Parenthood gives a very vague description on purpose $$$$

Listen to former abortion doctor Dr. Anthony Levatino explain it here:

Thanks to ClinicQuotes.com – there is another transcript of his explanation below:

A second trimester D&E abortion is a blind procedure. The baby can be in any orientation or position inside the uterus. Picture yourself reaching in with the Sopher clamp and grasping anything you can. At twenty weeks gestation, the uterus is thin and soft so be careful not to perforate or puncture the walls. Once you have grasped something inside, squeeze on the clamp to set the jaws and pull hard – really hard. You feel something let go and out pops a fully formed leg about 4 to 5 inches long. Reach in again and grasp whatever you can. Set the jaw and pull really hard once again and out pops an arm about the same length. Reach in again and again with that clamp and tear out the spine, intestines, heart and lungs.

The toughest part of a D&E abortion is extracting the baby’s head. The head of a baby that age is about the size of a plum and is now free floating inside the uterine cavity. You can be pretty sure you have hold of it if the Sopher clamp is spread about as far as your fingers will allow. You will know you have it right when you crush down on the clamp and see a pure white gelatinous material issue from the cervix. That was the baby’s brains. You can then extract the skull pieces. If you have a really bad day like I often did, a little face may come out and stare back at you.”

Congratulations! You have just successfully performed a Suction D&E abortion. You just affirmed her right to choose. You just made $600 cash in fifteen minutes.

Life News has more descriptions here.

Below- the Planned Parenthood version: (which profits from abortion)

D&E – Dilation & Evacuation

During a D&E:

Your health care provider will examine you and check your uterus.

You will get medication for pain. You may be offered sedation or IV medication to make you more comfortable

A speculum will be inserted into your vagina

PP Fetal develop 15 to 16 weeks

PP Fetal develop 17 to 18 weeks

Your cervix will be prepared for the procedure. You may be given medication or have absorbent dilators inserted a day or a few hours before the procedure. They will absorb fluid and grow bigger. This slowly stretches open your cervix

You will be given antibiotics to prevent infection

In later second-trimester procedures, you may also need a shot through your abdomen to make sure there is fetal demise before the procedure begins

Your health care provider will inject a numbing medication into or near your cervix

PP Fetal develop 17 to 18 weeks

PP Fetal develop 19 to 20 weeks

Medical instruments and a suction machine gently empty your uterus

A D&E usually takes between 10 and 20 minutes. But more time is needed to prepare your cervix. Time is also needed for talking with your provider about the procedure, a physical exam, reading and signing forms, and a recovery period of about one hour.

PP Fetal develop 21 to 24 weeks

PP Fetal develop 25 to 28 weeks

PP Fetal develop 29 to 32 weeks

PP Fetal develop 33 to 36 weeks

PP Fetal develop 37 to 40 weeks
