Abortion is NEVER a humane, responsible choice

If I told you that it was a good thing that I murdered my three-year-old daughter because, had I not done so, I would not have been willing to have my two-year-old son, what would you say?

Indianapolis resident, Victoria Barrett, basically says the same thing in an op-ed she submitted to the Indy Star over abortion legislation.

Senate Bill 334, was authored by Sen. Travis Holdman, Sen. Liz Brown, Sen. Amanda Banks and co-Authored by Sen. Dennis Kruse and the bill would “Prohibits a person from performing an abortion if the person knows that the pregnant woman is seeking the abortion because of: (1) the sex of the fetus; or (2) a diagnosis or potential diagnosis of the fetus having Down syndrome or any other disability. Makes it a Level 5 felony if a person knowingly or intentionally performs a sex selective abortion or an abortion conducted because of a diagnosis of Down syndrome or any other disability. Provides for civil relief.”

It was in response to this legislation that prompted Barrett to write her letter of protest. Barrette claimed that if SB334 had existed when she carried her daughter, diagnosed with a Trisomy 13, her son would not exist today.

My daughter’s “disability,” Barrett writes, “caused her to develop hydrocephaly; a heart with a missing chamber; a malformed, open abdominal wall; a cleft lip and palate on both sides of her mouth; and club feet; is called, by the medical establishment, “incompatible with life.” It’s deemed as such for a reason: no child with a full trisomy 13 anomaly ever survives more than a few days after birth. The vast majority spontaneously abort — the medical term for miscarriage — on their own. But my daughter, despite developmental problems so severe no fetus could possibly survive them, was still alive in my womb at 15 weeks of pregnancy.

Barrett says clearly that she loved her daughter – yet- she also states that ending her life, “before her suffering worsened” was, “the only humane, responsible choice. It was the only choice that could possibly have been made out of love.”

When I first read this, I did a double take – are you kidding me?

Who would actually accept this reasoning?

Abortion has so affected our culture that we have lost the ability to reason. In reality, if a mother wrote a letter admitting that she ended the life of her born daughter – we’d be outraged.

We do not know the exact time Barrett aborted her unborn daughter nor the procedure used to end her life.

But according to WebMD, at 15 weeks the most likely procedure used is Dilation and Evacuation or D+E.

They describe it this way:

    Pass a grasping instrument (forceps) into the uterus to grasp larger pieces of tissue. This is more likely in pregnancies of 16 weeks or more and is done before the uterine lining is scraped with a curette.
    Use a curved instrument (curette) to gently scrape the lining of the uterus and remove tissue in the uterus.
    Use suction. This may be done as a final step to make sure the uterine contents are completely removed.

That “loving, humane” D+E procedure is described by a former abortionist below:

What if, instead of writing about her 15 week unborn daughter, Barrett had said that ending the life of her 15-year-old daughter by ripping her diseased riddled body apart limb from limb, was “human, responsible, and loving?” What would we say?

To Barrett, protecting disabled children in the womb is an attack on- guess who? HER!

In fact, a quick google search turns up a blog where Ms. Barrett writes about her “loving and humane choice.”

But, instead of referring to her beloved and suffering daughter, she calls her, “a 15-week gestated fetus admitting, “I didn’t know how to grieve a half-formed human I had never met, and I felt like a tremendous failure.”

The surgeon had been concerned that it wouldn’t be possible to dilate my cervix sufficiently to remove a 15-week gestated fetus because I had never delivered a child. He wanted to be sure to use as much laminaria as possible, which turned out to be five sticks. I laid on the table, stoic, angry, as long as I could before I cried. The pain, already, before the seaweed began its work, radiated from the core of my being. It felt like nothing I had ever imagined,” Barrett wrote.

About the moment Barret ended her daughter’s life, she writes:

    “The rest of the week went about as you might imagine: by morning I was fully dilated; we waited for five hours at the understaffed hospital before the 20-minute procedure began; a nurse insisted, on my behalf, on conscious sedation at a minimum. I walked into the operating room, was provided a stepping stool to get myself onto the sterile table under the blinding, hot lights, like stage lights. It seemed so odd that the operating room had a panoramic view of the city out enormous windows. The actual termination was over in a blink, painless, mostly a relief. And then our daughter was gone.

    “After my head cleared, for about an hour I felt a strange bodily elation, as though I could turn cartwheels right then and there. When the surgeon finally arrived to talk before we checked out, he asked, “Can you already tell you’re not pregnant?” I could.”

Barrett questions Holdman’s motives in sponsoring the bill by calling it, “mandated torture of the mothers.”

Really Ms. Barrett? YOU were the tortured one here?

Barrett’s words offer no compassion towards the many children with various levels of disability having protection – none!

After all, as Barrett states in her letter to the Indy-Star, “If I had been forced to carry my daughter until she spontaneously aborted — or worse, until she was delivered, suffered tremendously, and died in my arms — I would never have chosen to have another child.”

So, I suppose we are supposed to “celebrate” that this mother who so willingly “ended the life” of her disabled daughter in the womb – is now the mother of another child, a son?

I can’t and I won’t buy into this “murder is compassion” lie. I refuse to accept that Barrett made a difficult choice out of love and concern of her tiny baby girl.

Abortion is NEVER a humane, responsible choice.

No way….I wouldn’t accept this logic if Barrett’s daughter was 15-years-old and I won’t accept it if she is 15 weeks or more in the womb either. And neither should anyone else.

Disabled women disturbed by abortion language while Planned Parenthood pretends to care

Posted in Disability, Planned Parenthood and discrimination, Planned Parenthood and Eugenics, Planned Parenthood Disabled Persons, Planned Parenthood Hypocrisy with tags , , , , , , , , on December 4, 2014 by saynsumthn

If I use the word hypocrisy again in a blog about Planned Parenthood, please bare with me.

Today, I came across this tweet from the abortion on demand for any reason especially disability organization, Planned Parenthood.

Imagine an organization which embraces killing babies for any reason – especially “health” reasons suggesting one listens to what disabled women are saying – the very people they would work to kill in the womb.

PP Tweet Disabled Women

Planned Parenthood’s tweet linked to this Daily Beast article:

PP Article Disabled

The article rightly claims that the feminist movement or shall I say the pro-abortion feminist movement is leaving disabled women behind.

From the article, “When Stephanie Woodward blogged about #YesAllWomen, she was excited to join the movement and share her own life experiences as a woman with a disability. She never expected her post to spawn hostile messages from activists scolding Woodward for trying to “detract from the real issue” and instead make it about disability.”

Author Elizabeth Heideman makes this observation for which I agree, “But when it’s not physical accessibility, it’s a lack of empathy or understanding that excludes disabled women.”

Feminist blogger, Elsa S. Henry, tells Heideman that disabled feminists are troubled by the language they hear from abortion supporter, “Every time that we see abortion policies in the news, someone inevitably brings up the fact that abortion should be legal so that people can abort their disabled babies,” Henry says.

BINGO!

That is where Planned Parenthood’s hypocrisy enters. As recently as last year, Planned Parenthood uploaded a series of videos promoting abortions on imperfect or seriously disabled unborn children.

In fact, Planned Parenthood was once accused by their own staff of firing a woman because of her disabilities (read here) Planned Parenthood of Central Washington was ordered to pay the former employee more than $106,000 in damages.

Her lawsuit claimed that Planned Parenthood fired her from her job as a regional manager after she was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis in her neck and back that required ongoing medical treatment.

ABORT THEM THEN LET THEM DIE

If an unborn child brought to Planned Parenthood to be executed has the tenacity to survive, Planned Parenthood indicated they would just leave them to die.

Alisa Laport Snow, a lobbyist representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates, once testified that Planned Parenthood believes the decision to kill a baby who survived an abortion should be left up to the woman seeking and her abortion doctor.

We believe that any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, her family, and the physician,” said the Planned Parenthood lobbyist.

This is not surprising, given that Planned Parenthood’s prez could not even tell you when life begins.

Cecile Richards who earns a six digit salary killing babies as president of Planned Parenthood was asked by Fusion’s Jorge Ramos when life begins.

This is a question that I think will be debated through the centuries…it is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation. I think every woman has to make their own decisions.”

When asked why it is so controversial for her to say when she thinks life starts, Cecile Richards responded, “Yeah, well, I don’t know if it is controversial . I don’t think its really relevant to the conversation. But for me, I’m a mother of three children. For me, life began when I delivered them…”

The entire concept of killing off the weak, disabled, or feebleminded came out of the eugenics movement which Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger was a member.

In fact, Planned Parenthood’s “Every Child a Wanted Child” slogan originated in Eugenics as I detail here. Planned Parenthood’s eugenics roots date back to Sanger who was a member of the American Eugenics Society, however, they remained connected to that movement long after Sanger was out of the picture. (details here)

As disability advocate, Deborah Geesling points out,”Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is the antithesis of care for disabled. I am keenly aware of her views on the “feeble minded” and what she considers the greatest sin.”

Geesling goes on to quote Sanger who once told news anchor Mike Wallace that the greatest sin was to bring essentially disabled children into the world, “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children into the world, that have disease from their parents, that have no chance in the world to be a human being, practically; delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin people can commit.

Today, proponents of abortion say child killing in the womb needs to be publicly funded partly because a disabled child will cost taxpayers money.

Listen to Planned Parenthood’s research arm, The Guttmacher Institute, “If public funds are not available to pay for abortions, a far greater amount of money will be spent to provide maternity care,medical care for the infant…and nutritional assistance to women on Medicaid”. (AbortionandWomen’sHealth)

Heideman was correct to point out the hesitation disabled women have to a radically pro-abortion feminist movement. One can only hope they will continue to distance themselves from the abortion lobby and their to provider, Planned Parenthood.

Father repents for not wanting his Down Syndrome child

Posted in Down Syndrome with tags , , , on October 2, 2013 by saynsumthn

Heath White, a pilot and FBI agent, said he had always sought perfection – and a Down syndrome child did not fit into that picture

But his wife refused to have an abortion and Paisley was born in 2007.

A few months later, he was making her laugh and he realized she was just like every other child – apart from that she was his

He wanted to show how proud he was of her so they began taking part in marathons and road races together.

‘My main concern was what people would think about me – what weakness inside me caused that,’ he said. ‘Learning you’re having a child with Downs is like experiencing a death, that’s what I felt like. Like I was getting a broken baby.’

He explained he did everything he could to try to force Jennifer to have an abortion and, while she said he was never abusive to her, she acknowledge he was not supportive.

Florida board revokes Sarasota abortion doctor’s license

Posted in Abortion, abortion clinic safety, Abortion complication, Abortionist, pro-choice, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2010 by saynsumthn

By Todd Ruger
Published: Tuesday, April 13, 2010 at 1:00 a.m.

A Sarasota doctor’s mistaken killing of the wrong fetus while trying to abort its deformed twin should never happen with today’s medical technology, a national expert said.

Dr. Matthew Kachinas, an obstetrician and gynecologist with a home on Longboat Key, botched a procedure called “selective reduction,” which can increase the mother’s safety during problematic multiple pregnancies.

Kachinas was supposed to inject a lethal chemical into a deformed male fetus during the 2006 procedure at his now-defunct Sarasota clinic, Premier Institute for Women’s Health on South Tamiami Trail.

By mistake, he injected the healthy female fetus inside a woman identified in documents only as “K.M.” The Florida Board of Medicine revoked Kachinas’ medical license Saturday.
A combination of carelessness and Kachinas’ lack of experience are both to blame for the fetus’ death in this case, said Dr. Mark Evans, a New York City obstetrician and geneticist who helped pioneer the technique.

Evans said he has never made that mistake in the thousands of selective reductions he has performed over the past three decades. He has not heard of a similar mix-up in more than 25 years, dating back to a time when ultrasound machines were far inferior to today’s technology.

Evans said the procedure is highly specialized, and that more than half of his patients come from out of state.

“Unless you do a lot of them you shouldn’t be doing them,” said Evans. “It requires skills that most people don’t have.”

Kachinas, 50, had never done the procedure before.

During disciplinary hearings, Kachinas blamed a bad ultrasound machine needed to find the position of the fetuses inside the uterus, and said he had a hard time telling his patients “no” and did not want them to have to travel out of state to have it done.

At a November hearing, Kachinas said he thought he had zoomed in on the male fetus, the one that had Down syndrome and signs of a heart defect. A week later, he learned that he had instead injected the healthy female. He concluded there must have been a problem with the ultrasound machine he was using.

After losing his license Saturday, Kachinas was involuntarily hospitalized because he said he planned to commit suicide. He could not be reached for comment Monday.

Kachinas represented himself before the board, Health News Florida reported. In a rambling presentation, Kachinas spent most of his time addressing two less-serious charges levied against him in unrelated cases. When he got to the twin case, though, he admitted he “screwed up.”

Records in those other cases show that in 2002, the Department of Health charged Kachinas with violating the medical practice laws after he was observed in a restroom taping pharmaceutical vials to his legs so that they would be concealed by his socks and pants.

And in 2004, the Department of Health cited him for failure to have records showing proper care in the case and for falsifying a death certificate. But a judge ruled there was no proof Kachinas knew the records were false.

The Associated Press and Health News Florida contributed to this report.

Slain abortion doc, George Tiller honored by eugenic and racist founded organization

From the Wichita Eagle:

Slain Wichita abortion provider George Tiller was honored posthumously in Washington over the weekend with one of the highest honors given by the International Federation of Planned Parenthood Foundation, the group announced Monday.

Tiller was named recipient of the group’s Medal of Honor for “outstanding individual contribution to sexual and reproductive health.”

The medal was presented at the international group’s Western Hemisphere meeting. Tiller’s widow, Jeanne, accepted it on her late husband’s behalf, according to a statement from the organization.

The award was presented by Alexander Sanger, grandson of Margaret Sanger, a nurse who crusaded for women’s access to birth control in the early 20th century and co-founded Planned Parenthood.

For 30 years, George Tiller stood up to protests, harassment and assaults, even being wounded some years ago in a shooting,” Alexander Sanger said. “He kept his clinic doors open to give a choice to women who never imagined they would ever need it — women with a wanted pregnancy that had gone terribly awry as it progressed.”

After decades of operating a controversial clinic providing late-term abortions in Wichita, Tiller was gunned down May 31 at Reformation Lutheran Church, where he was serving as an usher for Sunday services.

Abortion Doctor Shooting

Rest of story here: Tiller’s work honored in D.C.

So Late-Term Abortion Doc, George Tiller, is now in the Planned Parenthood: Hall of Fame alongside Eugenics Member and Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood was a long-standing member of the American Eugenics Society as were many of Planned Parenthood’s founders. It is no wonder that an organization which worked alongside those who felt that blacks, Jews, disabled were not equal to White Elitists would honor Tiller.

I wonder when the “We care about women abortion industry” and Planned Parenthood will honor Christin Gilbert who died from the abortion she received at the hands of Dr. Tiller. Oh, but I forgot, she had Down’s Syndrome, and that is just the type of “Health Problem” Tiller targeted in his eugenic christinhugsabortion mill.

More Dirt on Planned Parenthood :
ACLJ Files Reply Brief with Federal Appeals Court in Massive Fraud Case against Planned Parenthood Affiliates in California

WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) has filed an additional brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in a multi-million dollar fraud case against Planned Parenthood (PP) affiliates in California. The ACLJ filed its reply brief Friday with the appeals court in a case where ACLJ attorneys represent a former employee of the PP affiliate in Los Angeles, who is now a federal whistleblower. The case had been dismissed by a federal district court, but the ACLJ is asking the appeals court to reinstate the lawsuit.

The federal False Claims Act (FCA) forbids government contractors from submitting “false or fraudulent” claims for payment. The FCA also authorizes private individuals to bring suit against the offenders to recover the fraudulently obtained funds.

Nationally, Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar operation. We believe this case will show that Planned Parenthood has been soaking taxpayers even beyond the legal limits,” said Jay Sekulow, ACLJ Chief Counsel. “The False Claims Act provides an important weapon in rectifying illegal runs on taxpayer dollars.

The allegation in this case is that PP affiliates in California illegally marked up the supposed cost of various birth control drugs when seeking government reimbursement, resulting in tens of millions of dollars of overbilling – at taxpayer expense. State audits in both California and Washington State have found PP affiliates guilty of overbilling.

In the reply brief filed with the appeals court on September 25th, the ACLJ counters arguments that the Planned Parenthood affiliates made in their own brief on appeal. In particular, the ACLJ brief takes Planned Parenthood to task for “misrepresenting” the record in the case and for “improperly” trying to inject new materials into the case on appeal.

You can read the reply brief here:

When the former PP staffer sued the PP affiliates in federal court, charging the defendants with having fraudulently overbilled the state and federal governments in the amount of tens of millions of dollars, a prominent law firm began representing the PP defendants in the case for free. The law firm convinced a federal district court to dismiss the case. ACLJ attorneys then entered the case to handle the appeal.

“This is a very complicated, highly technical area of the law,” noted Sekulow. “There is no way an ordinary citizen, no matter how just the claim or how egregious the fraud, could afford to take on a prominent law firm in a complex area of the law like this. We’re very pleased that the ACLJ was available to provide the high-powered analysis a case like this calls for,” concluded Sekulow.

The ACLJ filed its opening brief in July and explained why the appeals court should reverse the lower court’s judgment and reinstate the lawsuit. You can read the ACLJ opening brief here:
