Last year, Andrea Grimes over at the pro-abortion RH Reality blog started a “Taco and Beer challenge” to raise funds to support the killing babies in the womb.

It was launched on the heels of the ice bucket challenge which I blogged at the time.

Grimes explained the abortion event in 2014 this way:

    “The Taco or Beer Challenge couldn’t be simpler: You eat a taco and/or drink a beer, and you donate to an abortion fund. The only ice you’ll need for this challenge is the ice in your cooler, or maybe the ice in your water if you get a particularly spicy taco.”

And she claimed that abortion supporters raised $30,000 to support unregulated abortion on demand.

This month, Grimes launched a 2015 version of scarfing down a taco and guzzling beer while contributing to the slaughter of unborn children by writing:

Taco and Beer challange abortion 2015

    “The 2015 Taco or Beer Challenge launches today—the anniversary of our unintentionally auspicious beginning—and lasts through September 18. Abortion funds, abortion funders, and reproductive freedom fighters around the world are hosting Taco Tuesday launch parties to celebrate. We’re calling it International Taco or Beer Challenge Day, and more than two dozen events are already planned around the world, with more to come in the next four weeks. You don’t need to complete your ToBC on Tuesday! You can do it any time before September 18…It’s about funding legal abortion care. You can’t complete the ToBC without donating to an abortion fund. It’s literally the only requirement, and therefore the most important one.”

The abortion rights group has created a website where participants can upload pictures they hope will encourage others to take part in by donating.

One image already published and tweeted today by NARAL shows a little baby, whose mom apparently believes it would have been okay to kill before his birth.

NARAL described the baby as, “The littlest Taco Or Beer Challenger.”

Makes me want to barf! If NARAL and Grimes and all their abortion loving supporters had their way babies like that would never make out of the womb to a Taco and Beer event.

Instead their tiny arms, legs, head, brains and whole bodies would be shipped off to a procurement company to be harvested for experimentation.

Speaking of harvesting baby organs, right on cue, Planned Parenthood also tweeted their support of the event:

The abortion clinic chain has been embattled in a controversy after the pro-life group, Center for Medical Progress uploaded several videos exposing their gruesome baby parts harvesting operations.

Not surprising, neither Grimes nor RH Reality Blog or anyone else associated with the fundraiser has criticized Planned Parenthood’s harvesting scheme.

In fact, they approve of their supporters donating to them:

Writing on their Tumblr page:

    the Taco Or Beer Challenge is about encouraging people to give abortion stigma a big fucking taco-covered middle finger by being loud and proud about directly funding abortion.

Well…Ms. Grimes I won’t raise one finger for abortion, but according to this image taken from a petri dish of aborted children inside a Planned Parenthood path lab, looks like raising fingers, arms, legs, livers, kidneys, and other baby parts is what abortion is all about.

Enjoy your Taco and Beer while you focus on this:

Pro-choice writer calls sterile abortion clinics intimidating

Posted in abortion clinic safety, Hospital Admitting Privileges, RH Reality Blog, Texas Abortion, Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2014 by saynsumthn

RH Reality Blog writer, Andrea Grimes appears to bemoan the idea that abortion surgery and abortion recovery would take place in a “medical / sterile” even calling it: “intimidating?”

Andrea Grimes aother choice lost texas

Grimes writes in her latest blog post, “In recovery, when everyone’s wearing hospital gowns and laying on hospital-style stretchers, it’s more difficult to invite partners and friends to join patients after their procedures. There’s no herbal tea, no feeling of relaxing in a friend’s living room. Everything feels more medical, more sterile, more intimidating.”

Grimes is talking about her tour of the San Antonio Whole Woman’s Health abortion clinics by corporate vice president Andrea Ferrigno, calling it a, “small, purple-tinted clinic that feels like a cozy gynecologist’s office, and a fluorescent-lit surgical center with two icy operating rooms.


Just where was Grimes to tour Whole Women’s Health’s Beaumont abortion clinic forced to close by the state for horrific conditions?

Oh wait, Grimes did tour the facility, she writes later in the piece, “I thought of the warmth I’d experienced when visiting Whole Woman’s clinics in McAllen, Beaumont, and Austin to do interviews or take photographs for a story.”

But..apparently, like with Kermit Gosnell, there appears to be a disconnect between what pro-choice people report and what health departments report when it comes to the inside of an abortion clinic.

As I have blogged before and William Saletan says best there is a,”sisterhood of silence” among pro-choice and reproductive rights abortion advocates.

After all, when the Beaumont Whole Woman’s abortion center was inspected what authorities found was abysmal.

According to a state inspection report, Whole Woman’s failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.

The report says the facility failed to provide a safe environment for patients and staff. The suction machines which were used on patients had numerous rusty spots which, “had the likelihood to cause infection.”

Back to Grimes.. her observation that abortion clinics becoming more medical and sterile will affect a woman’s ‘s overall attitude toward abortion has some merit. After all, according to Grimes women who have to get abortions inside “surgical facilities” take the “risks” to abortion more serious, and I add maybe affecting profits…..

Grimes goes on to describe Whole Women’s newest abortion clinic as it complies with the new state laws, “now that they’re performing procedures in the ASC—a facility that Hagstrom Miller acquired so that she could provide legal abortion care after 16 weeks, as previously required by Texas law before the coming requirements of HB 2 would shift all legal abortion care into ASCs, regardless of the gestation of pregnancy—the word “anxiety” seems to come up more often, said Ferrigno.”

Anxiety should be something a woman about to undergo surgery experiences – she should ask about the risks and the dangers to herself.

As Ferrigno says in the Grimes piece, “But it does change the perception and the experience of the woman.” Being in a hospital-like room, said Ferrigno, has a kind of psychosomatic effect on some patients. They’ll ask staff questions, said Ferrigno, like, “‘Is it more dangerous now? Will there be more pain?’

Now, with abortion clinics closing as a new Texas law requires abortion clinics to have the same requirements as other surgical centers – the call for the safety of abortion (which we heard even before Roe. V. Wade was decided) has been diminished.

From the pro-choice perspective, it is no longer about safety as confirmed by the words of former abortion clinic owner and current executive director of the Abortion Care Network Charlotte Taft, “The safety of abortion is not the issue,” she said. “The difference is going to be the atmosphere of the place, how you feel, and what philosophy they’re coming from.”

Sick pro-choice challenge: Eat a taco – drink beer- raise money for Abortion

Posted in Pro-choice Logic, Pro-choice mocking, Pro-choice People, RH Reality Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 21, 2014 by saynsumthn

Yesterday I wrote about how pro-life people are creating their own ice bucket challenge which does not support abortion.

Now…pro-choice people are getting into the mix by creating the Taco and Beer Challenge:

Andrea Grimes over at RH Reality blog has started the challenge to raise funds to kill babies with abortion.

Grimes writes, “The Taco or Beer Challenge couldn’t be simpler: You eat a taco and/or drink a beer, and you donate to an abortion fund. The only ice you’ll need for this challenge is the ice in your cooler, or maybe the ice in your water if you get a particularly spicy taco.”

Taco and Bear Challenge

Grimes, continues, “What I do know is that eating tacos and drinking beer is more pleasurable than getting doused with ice water, and that lawmakers around the country are passing increasingly restrictive anti-abortion access laws. Which means abortion funds are now more necessary than ever as legal abortion becomes harder than ever to access—especially for those of us who don’t live in major urban centers.

Grimes seems delighted to state that “Abortion is common. Abortion is normal…There’s nothing shameful about having an abortion, and nothing shameful about funding abortion. It’s so not-shameful, in fact, that you can be the kind of regular ol’ human being who eats a taco or drinks a beer and funds abortion… The Taco or Beer Challenge is about doing what’s right for your own taco and beverage needs, just like having an abortion—or not—is about doing what’s right for yourself and your family.

She urges her baby killing followers to to take a photo or a video, mention where they donated, and Tweet it to #TacoOrBeerChallenge.

Grimes claims she started the challenge as a joke- but many on Twitter seem to think she is serious:

And these pro-choice people are serious about making a joke out of killing babies – as many babies as they can !
