NBC medical expert: Joan Rivers’ emergency a reminder on importance of admitting privileges

joan-rivers-435Comedienne Joan Rivers remains in critical condition today after going into respiratory and cardiac arrest August 29 during what has been described as a “routine throat procedure,” a “minor procedure,” and “outpatient surgery.”

Rivers was rushed by ambulance from Yorkville Endoscopy to Mount Sinai Hospital, located nine blocks apart.

We pray the 81-year-old is restored to health, although there are concerns “the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised, leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair,” according to New York Daily News, in which case Rivers allegedly “would not want to live unless she could enjoy ‘a full and active life'” because she “would not want to be a burden on anyone” – a topic for another post.

Journo calls out Planned Parenthood for false hysteria

Planned Parenthood accuses NBC of not airing Obvious Child movie with word abortionAt The Wrap it was “an individual to [sic] knowledge of the situation” who whispered in its ear that NBC was refusing to air an ad for the pro-abortion movie Obvious Child if it included the word “abortion.” 

At Bustle this news came ”according to The Wrap,” i.e., Chinese telephone.

It was “sources” who told the New York Post’s Page 6 and “a source [who] told Page 6” when the rumor jumped across the pond to The Daily Mail.

Finally, the source revealed itself to The Hill as Planned Parenthood Action Fund (although NARAL was the source elsewhere), and to its credit, The Hill properly investigated and shot Planned Parenthood’s false hysteria down (even if the post’s title perpetuated the abortion giant’s Pinnochio):

Stanek weekend question: Are the increasingly coarse portrayals of abortion having an impact?

Screen-Shot-2014-05-24-at-11.28.22-AM1-1This week comedienne  Sarah Silverman called preborn babies “goo” on Real Time with Bill Maher:

“And meanwhile, it’s goo. It’s goo that they’re so worried about.”

Silverman is no stranger to contemptible treatment of the abortion topic (<– and yes, NBC did indeed take a pass on her pilot), sometimes in conjunction with the Christian faith.

But Silverman is part of a celebrity club doing their best to make abortion funny, blasé.

Mike Huckabee was right about the Democrat Party’s overactive libido

Here is how NBC’s Kasie Hunt described comments made by former Gov. Mike Huckabee at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting on January 23:

And here is what Huckabee actually said (video here) - the opposite of what Hunt said he said:

  • Reflections of a Paralytic recommends a “must read” article by Jennifer Lahl of The Center for Bioethics in Culture, who asks, “Why don’t Christians see IVF and surrogacy as moral issues?”:

    The fact that so many people fail to consider the moral implications of IVF suggests that in the age of fertility treatments, surrogates, and modern family-building via parenting partnerships, a woman’s womb has come to be seen as a somewhat arbitrary location. NBC’s The New Normal quips that women are “Easy-Bake Ovens” and children are “cupcakes.”

Davis’s sneakers got 3x the coverage as Gosnell’s severed baby feet

Jivin J pointed to a New York Times article that fawned over “overnight sensation” Wendy Davis, a Democrat Texas state senator who is a big fan of late-term abortions.

But that was just the tip of the iceberg, according to Culture and Media Institute:

  • Longtime abortion advocate and abortionist David Grimes tries to intentionally deceive Washington Post readers with this quote:

    David Grimes, former head of the CDC’s abortion surveillance branch, said clinics like Gosnell’s were commonplace before Roe v. Wade, the court case that legalized abortion. Today, the problem of substandard clinics is so small that the branch, which investigated problem clinics, no longer exists, he said.“The legalization of abortion stands out as a public health triumph,” he said. “Over 1,000 women died every year from illegal abortion in the 1940s. Now it’s less than a handful a year. That’s the story, not one aberrant doctor in Philadelphia.”

    Wait. 1,000 women died every year in the 1940’s? Wasn’t abortion legalized in the 1970’s? Why is Grimes using statistics from 30 years before abortion was legalized to make his case?

    Oh yeah, that’s right – because in 1972, 39 women (as opposed to over a thousand) died from illegal abortion. An additional 24 women died from legal abortion in 1972.
