Abortion Is Murder

As Far As I’m Concerned Abortion Is Murder

That’s right. In my opinion the deliberate killing off of unborn-as-yet children is murder. It should, insofar as I’m concerned, be treated exactly as any other instance of such a crime – homicide, most often 1st Degree Homicide since it’s normally a premeditated act of killing on the parts of both the woman and the abortionist.

And therein is the rub as it were. Abortion is the commission of the crime of homicide and needs to be treated exactly the same in ways as any other instance of the crime.

Justifiable Homicide

If either the mother-to-be or the involved medical professional is of the strongly held and reasonable belief that bringing the child within her to term would be a clear and present threat to her life, then the abortion must be considered a case of justifiable homicide.

The Dead Can’t Be Killed

Rather obviously – but still a recurring point of contention apparently – if the unborn child is already dead, he or she can’t be killed and so, hence, he or she cannot be unlawfully killed, i.e., murdered. If any crime could be assessed in such circumstances it would rightly be assessed upon any who refused to remove the unborn child’s corpse from the woman’s body.

Reasonable Actions

Undertaking reasonable actions that in some statistically insignificant numbers of cases could lead to the death of a viable child in utero is not murder. Hence, the use of chemical contraceptives – including the correct use of Plan B – does not fall within the scope of homicide any more than anyone driving a car, which might result in an accident which might in turn result in the death of an unborn child does so.

Withdrawal of Life Support

While potentially problematical in detail and execution, it is my opinion that ending the life of an unborn child who will not survive in any real and functional manner past their birth is not murder. It is merely the withdrawal of life support, with the mother having given informed consent for such removal.

No Attainder!

And no; I make no exceptions in the cases of rape and/or incest. To kill the child of such unions is an attainder and quite specifically a particularly extreme form of “corruption of the blood,” wherein the child is punished for the crimes of the parent(s).

And there is my opinion, in some detail, on abortion and on abortion itself only. In this post I’m not venturing my opinions on ancillary issues and laws which surround it and which are often used as arguments in favor of killing off unborn children.

Facebook Bans Conspiracy

Facebook Bans Conspiracy
Facebook Bans Conspiracy

To most Americans it’s obvious that Facebook’s bans are the conspiracy. They’ve doubled-down on probably illegally silencing certain sorts of speech and certain sorts of speech only, while letting at least as “dangerous” things go by without censure or censorship. Indeed, they developed the habit of actively defending their preferred narrative by banning dissenting or complaining comments and those that made them.

An Old Argument Reprised

An Old Argument Reprised By The Dems

It seems that various Democrats are dead set against the upcoming 2020 Census including a question about citizenship / immigration status – a question that had been included in the decennial survey during much of America’s history. They even got one of their pet “judges” to block the Commerce Department from re-adding the citizenship question to the 2020 census questionnaire.

Thankfully, the SCOTUS has decided to hear the case in an expedited manner so that this perfidy can be mitigated.

But hey! This is something that President Trump either authorized or, at least, was done by somebody in his Administration. Hence, Democrats engaging in lawfare against it and any exercise of our President’s lawful authority or that of his Administration is the new normal. What is shocking and what says a lot about truth of what Democrats still are in their hearts and minds is the argument they’ve brought forth.

Democrats from at least 14 “Blue States” led by those ruling California are incredibly scared that such a question on this census could cause them to lose seats in the House of Representatives, votes in the Electoral College, and federal tax money disbursements, due to Illegal Aliens unlawfully refusing responding to the Census questionnaire if such a question is included upon it.

An Old, Old, Old Dem Argument Shamelessly Reprised

Yeah, that’s a new coat of lipstick on an old, old, old Democrat argument – an argument they’ve used with different wording but the same rationale as early as 1783 when they demanded that those who could not vote could still be used by Democrats to garner them the benefits of increased representation in the House and the Electoral College. Then, they’ve shown before that they really haven’t changed that much in the intervening time. They’ve just switched out which group of slaves to try to use for their rather foul and self-serving purposes.

Perhaps the SCOTUS will render a compromise ruling, having the citizenship question included on only Three-Fifths of the questionnaires.

Sanctuary’s End?

Sanctuary's End?
Sanctuary’s End?

With a large percentage of the mayors, city officials, and some high-profile residents of the major Sanctuary Cities taking serious umbrage at President Trump consideration of releasing detained illegal aliens in those cities and only in those cities, are we at sanctuary’s end?

The short answer is, of course, no. These Left-wing politicians and celebrities are not self-aware enough to even recognize their own hypocrisy. Hence, they will maintain the status quo if at all possible so that they can have it both ways, each whenever it suits them.

The ACLU’s New Honesty

The ACLU's New Honesty
The ACLU’s New Honesty

Here’s another bit of interest from the Left’s now largely defunct hysterical mob action over Justice Kavanaugh: The ACLU in a rare paroxysm of honesty came out and campaigned¬† – to the point of spending millions of dollars on multi-state ads – against Kavanaugh’s nomination solely because of Ford’s now discredited allegations against him.

But, at least this is a much needed bit of honesty on the ACLU’s part.¬† And it is honesty, as a leaked internal memo shows clearly. The ACLU has officially abandoned their commitment to the Bill of Rights in favor of “Social Justice.” Now they’re just another hate group and, sadly, a well-funded one at that, with a large stable of lawyers to use in lawfare against the American people.
