This video comes to me via commenter “Lauren” at the Ace of Spades HQ. Lauren an a host of others went to Austin, TX this morning to help counteract the (largely astro-turfed) pro-baby-murder (wait, I’m supposed to call them “Pro Choice”) crowd. You know, the ones who stood with Wendy Davis who, if her mother believed as she obviously does, would never have been born.
Hear that singing? It's "Amazing Grace." That's the pro-life group. Here that angry chanting? (I think it's supposed to be "choice! now!") That's the pro-baby-murder group.
Now, that would be bad enough. I mean, really, “Choice! Now!” as though there is no “choice” in Texas at the moment? Let’s look at this bill they’re “protesting.”
First, it would prohibit abortions after the 20th week. Specifically it would prohibit “elective” abortions after the 20th week. For the record, here are a bunch of ultrasounds of human babies at 16 weeks (4 weeks prior to that deadline). I’m sorry, but at 20 weeks (well into the 2nd trimester) we’re no longer talking about a “choice.”
Second, it would hold abortion clinics to the same health and inspection standards as Ambulatory Surgery centers. Considering the risks involved (see the “complications” section of that second list) involved with D&C or D&E procedures, I would think women would want that level of sanitation. Wasn’t the whole point of “safe, legal, and rare” that women were getting these abortions in “back alleys” and that’s bad because back alleys are, well, dirty?
Third, it would impose some limitations on doctors performing the butchery (sorry, “procedure”). They would have to have admitting privileges to an actual hospital, among other things.
So, with the exception of the week limit, these are all for women’s health. These changes make it more likely that women will even survive the procedure. Taken as a whole, they will help prevent (or at least punish after the fact) any further Kermit Gosnells.
And, somehow, that’s a bridge too far for the pro-baby-murder crowd.
But they didn’t stop there. Lauren also chimed in with this:
My Source* is a huge pro-abortion activist. So great, in fact, that she had knowledge of and and invitation to, the OWS tactics meeting that was held yesterday. Basically, she went and was really disgusted by their tactics because she recognized them as the ones that were used against her when she was a precinct chair for Hillary 4 Texas. Obama's minions used these tactics way back then.
She says that she just got back from the tactics meeting, and instead of the "how to not get arrested" meeting that it was billed as it was actually a "how to cause as much disruption as possible without getting your hands dirty."
Basically and OWSer marks a random person as a target. This is usually someone in a position of power on the opposite side. The OWSer calls over the police and tells them that the target has been harassing them and demands an on the spot investigation.
The police oblige, and spend the next 30-45 minutes interviewing the target. Obviously this disrupts the opposition's protest and also, more importantly, it pulls police away from their duties which gives the OWSers room to do whatever nefarious deed they have planned.
*- Source was identified to me, but Lauren asked that I withhold the identification. Also, this is an edited version of a lengthy email, I believe I have represented it in all material ways correctly.
So it’s not enough to attempt a “public’s veto” of a duly passed bill. It’s not enough to claim that baby-murder (sorry: “choice”) is so important that we must not have the least amount of regulation and oversight of the facilities in which this butchery (sorry: procedure) will be done. No, we also have to attempt to have the authorities interfere with the opposition, lest anyone hear their side of it.
Well, murder-bots? Now our side is being heard. Whether you like it not.
