Kirsten Powers: I Don’t Stand With Wendy Davis
by Kirsten Powers Jul 2, 2013 4:45 AM EDT
Stand with the pink-sneakered Texas legislator and her fight to allow mothers to abort babies past the 20th week of pregnancy? Never—and most women wouldn’t either, says Kirsten Powers.

Texas legislator and her pink sneakers have been lionized for an eleventh-hour filibuster against a bill that would have made it illegal for mothers to abort babies past 20 weeks of pregnancy, except in the case of severe fetal abnormalities or to protect the life or health of the mother.

People actually cheered this.

When Davis’ filibuster was stopped, spectators voiced their anger.

But the fight is not over. The bill will be reintroduced, and supporters of the ban are optimistic it will pass. For now, Wendy Davis has achieved the dubious victory of maintaining a very dark status quo. Texas women will still be able to abort a healthy baby up to the 26th week of pregnancy for any reason, as the current law allows.

According to the Parents Connect website, if you are in the 25th week of your pregnancy, “Get ready for pat-a-cake! Baby’s hands are now fully developed and he spends most of his awake time groping around in the darkness of your uterus. Brain and nerve endings are developed enough now so that your baby can feel the sensation of touch.” Let’s be clear: Davis has been called a hero for trying to block a bill that would make aborting this baby illegal.

In addition to the limit on late-term abortions, the Texas legislature sought to pass regulations on abortion clinics similar to what was passed in Pennsylvania in 2011 after the Gosnell horrorThe New York Times warned that the Texas bill “could lead to the closing of most of Texas’s 42 abortion clinics.” That sounds familiar. In 2011, the Pennsylvania ACLU claimed a post-Gosnell bill “would effectively close most and maybe all of the independent abortion clinics in Pennsylvania.” Last month, aPennsylvania news site reported that “several” abortion clinics have closed, which isn’t quite the Armageddon the abortion-rights movement predicted.

So no, I don’t stand with Wendy. Nor do most women, as it turns out. According to aJune National Journal poll, 50 percent of women support, and 43 percent oppose, a ban on abortion after 20 weeks, except in cases of rape and incest.

One can assume I am also not the only woman in America who is really tiring of the Wendys of the world claiming to represent “women’s rights” in their quest to mainstream a medical procedure—elective late-term abortion—that most of the civilized world finds barbaric and abhorrent. In many European countries, you can’t get an abortion past 12 weeks, except in narrow circumstances. Gallup reported in January that 80 percent of Americans think abortion should be illegal in the third trimester, and 64 percent think it should be illegal in the second trimester.

Maybe we should wonder what is wrong with the women who think protecting the right to abort your baby for any reason up to the 26th week is a ‘human right.’

If the majority of Americans oppose elective late-term abortion, why do we have Davis complaining to CBS’s Bob Schieffer that the male politicians who are championing the late-term abortion ban are “bullying women”? Maybe it’s she who is bullying the rest of us into supporting a view that is mocked by scientific advancement; namely 3-D sonograms. Maybe we should be thankful for the men and wonder what is wrong with the women who think protecting the right to abort your baby for any reason up to the 26th week is a “human right.”

Human-rights movements have traditionally existed to help the voiceless and those without agency gain progressively more rights. Yet in the case of abortion, the voiceless have progressively lost rights at the hands of people who claim to be human-rights crusaders. Abortion-rights leaders have turned the world upside down. They want us to believe that a grown woman is voiceless, that she has less agency than the infant in her womb who relies on her for life. A woman has so little agency, we are told, that she is incapable of getting an abortion before the fifth month of her pregnancy. To suggest she should do so is a “war on women.” It’s an insult to women dressed up as “women’s rights.”

On ABC’s This Week, Peggy Noonan responded to the chants of “I stand with Wendy” by noting, “What she is … standing for is something we would recognize as infanticide, late-term abortion, the taking of a little child’s life.” Standing for that is not heroic, and it is not something to be cheered.

Margaret Sanger Interview

April 12, 2013

The media has been called out for ignoring the trial of abortionist and baby killer Kermit Gosnell, but they’re still ignoring the story. A Washington Post reporter said she wasn’t covering it because it’s a “local crime story.” I kid you not. This is what they aren’t reporting:

Infant beheadings. Severed baby feet in jars. A childscreaming after it was delivered alive during an abortion procedure. Haven’t heard about these sickening accusations?

It’s not your fault. Since the murder trial of Pennsylvania abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell began March 18, there has been precious little coverage of the case that should be on every news show and front page. The revolting revelations of Gosnell’s former staff, who have been testifying to what they witnessed and did during late-term abortions, should shock anyone with a heart.

NBC-10 Philadelphia reported that, Stephen Massof, a former Gosnell worker, “described how he snipped the spinal cords of babies, calling it, ‘literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body.” One former worker, Adrienne Moton, testified that Gosnell taught her his “snipping” technique to use on infants born alive. (Read More)

Here’s a picture of the reserved seating section for media.


Think of all the non-issues the media covers breathlessly, like Rush Limbaugh saying something about Sandra Fluke. Or Todd Akin making a stupid comment about rape. Or the Komen Foundation cutting off funding to Planned Parenthood. It’s wall to wall coverage. But they won’t cover multiple murders of newborn babies. It’s disgusting.

Update: The Atlantic has a pretty comprehensive article covering this case, and why it’s newsworthy. Actually, newsworthy would be an understatement.

For this isn’t solely a story about babies having their heads severed, though it is that. It is also a story about a place where, according to the grand jury, women were sent to give birth into toilets; where a doctor casually spread gonorrhea and chlamydiae to unsuspecting women through the reuse of cheap, disposable instruments; an office where a 15-year-old administered anesthesia; an office where former workers admit to playing games when giving patients powerful narcotics; an office where white women were attended to by a doctor and black women were pawned off on clueless untrained staffers. Any single one of those things would itself make for a blockbuster news story. Is it even conceivable that an optometrist who attended to his white patients in a clean office while an intern took care of the black patients in a filthy room wouldn’t make national headlines?

But it isn’t even solely a story of a rogue clinic that’s awful in all sorts of sensational ways either. Multiple local and state agencies are implicated in an oversight failure that is epic in proportions!

Read the whole thing, there is much, much more.

Update: Imagine the media outrage if this was a story about dogs?

Update: I checked the website of the local ABC affiliate in my area and they have two AP stories posted – here and here – that don’t even come close to giving readers the real story.


Kermit Gosnell Should Receive The 2013 Margaret Sanger Award

April 13, 2013


Sanger KKK

The media blackout of the Kermit Gosnell trial continues. Heaven forbid they would find the murder of minority newborns, the spread of venereal disease due to unclean conditions, or the maiming of black women newsworthy. It’s a horrific story that should be making headlines nationwide. It’s so horrible there are many different angles the media could use to cover it. But they don’t. Maybe they’re afraid it will bring up the ghost of Margaret Sanger, and her heinous racist legacy.

Sound radical? Consider a quote from Sanger:

“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. And the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”

This quote is not in dispute; it was written in a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, who was a part of the Eugenics Task Force in North Carolina. This group imposed “irreversible surgical sterilization” on about 7,600 people, some as young as ten years old.

Read the whole thing. I can’t think of any living human being more deserving of a Margaret Sanger award than Dr. Kermit Gosnell. But those awards are reserved for women like Hillary Clinton and Jane Fonda. You can find a list of all of the recipients of this badge of filth and crime here. Who knows, maybe Gosnell will win for 2013. He certainly did his best to advance Sanger’s twisted agenda.

Oh, and one more thing to keep in mind. As a state senator in Illinois, President Obama was against a law that would have saved the lives of innocent babies who survived abortions. I guess that explains why we haven’t seen any tears shed by the president or his wife over the murder of these newborn babies. The ultimate irony is that no guns were involved. For these innocent little babies Michelle Obama has nothing. There’s no “I’m Baby B, and Baby B is me” for her.
