I haven't heard any arguments about arming the clinicians at Planned Parenthood like they do about teachers when there's a school shooting.

I wonder what the difference is?

Heh. I'd love to see the folks at PP armed. Then those pussies protesters who have nothing else to do but bother women trying to get a pap smear for cheap might go home that day and mind their own fucking business for once.

If we armed fetuses, we wouldn't have as many abortions.

No, Ben Carson is victim blaming the fetuses, if they'd only have fought back they'd be alive now.

On a different, but still sort of related tangent for a moment, I'm wondering how the pro life crowd's been reacting to Jeb's recent thing of "hell yeah", he'd kill baby Hitler if he had the chance. If there's been any outcry, I've yet to hear about it.

Anywho. This story. Just...yeah .

It's funny, too, how quiet the GOP is being in response to this tragic event. Especially considering how often they've been spouting off about and attacking the organization in general in all their political campaigns and debates and whatnot of late. Curious, that.

Also, Irvine, awesome post.

Was Jeb Bush's baby Hitler comment discussed to any great length here? That was probably one of the biggest missing-the-point statements I've heard from politicians, and there have been a lot.

Woa.. people actually still rally at abortion clinics there? Wowzers. Whatever happened to that separation of church and state?

Fine if you don't agree with abortion, don't get an abortion then. But for fuck's sake let other people make their own choices.

What is there to discuss? That a serious contender for presidential office was standing in a room where this was a topic of debate pretty much ends the conversation.

In Toronto there's a group of about a dozen teenagers (pretty sure they're a church youth group) who spend their entire summer vacations standing on the busiest corners downtown with 4'x4' posters of aborted fetuses. Sunrise to sunset, every single day. It's infuriating.

I blame the media for this. They used to have a duty to report on stories, but most importantly, report on facts.

I don't believe I saw one outlet call bullshit on all the lies about PP. instead they may have an "opinion" piece that asks "is it true?"

Isn't the medias job to present the facts?

We go to wars, get no information on policy, and allow and fan the flames on hateful fear-mongering.

Had people come out and called bullshit on "baby parts" of PP heavily edited video, maybe we don't have lunatics scared out of their mind and ready to kill to protect whatever bullshit narrative they believe
