Override of 20-week abortion ban veto in West VA “imminent”

Earl-Ray-Tomblin-at-White-House (1)A remarkable feat in and of itself, West Virginia became the first Democrat-controlled state to pass a 20-week abortion ban this past March.

Until then all 1w other 20-week fetal pain bans (Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, IdahoIndiana, KansasLouisiana, MississippiNebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas) had been passed by Republicans.

West Virginia’s supposedly pro-life Democrat Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, pictured right, went on to veto the ban, claiming it was unconstitutional. This although nine of the aforementioned state bans* have never been challenged in court.

Now stage has been set for an even more remarkable feat to take place: a Democrat-controlled override of Tomblin’s veto.

  • Clinic Quotes shares something that might make your blood boil:

    In one year alone, the Los Angeles Planned Parenthood clergy consultation service received $250,000 in kickbacks from clinics to which they referred women for abortions.

    Planned Parenthood and their current Clergy Advisory Board has celebrated the 40th anniversary of the CCS and states that they are proud to continue defending abortion in the spirit of the CCS.

  • The West Virginia abortionist being sued for allegedly continuing an abortion against a patient’s wishes is denying the allegations and is claiming that leaving a pieces of the child in the patient wasn’t his fault:

    Her complaint claims she came to the clinic for an abortion but that she wasn’t given enough medication ahead of the procedure because the center and [Rodney Lee] Stephens didn’t know enough about her history with “use and/or abuse” of pain medication.

    Stephens refused to stop the procedure when [Itai] Gravely told him to and staff members restrained her while he finished the procedure, according to her complaint. She says she felt enough pain after the procedure to eventually go to Charleston Area Medical Center.

    At the hospital, Gravely says the doctors removed more materials from her uterus, including a skull….

    Stephens and the center also state they are “of information and belief” that CAMC removed “additional products of conception.” But Gravely was told that “retained fragments and tissue” could remain after the abortion, which could lead to the need for further medical attention.

    If any “products of conception” remained in Gravely, it wasn’t because Stephens or the center didn’t provide the proper care, according to the response.

Randall’s Terry’s micro-targeted ad campaign to defeat Obama

The October 22 issue of The Weekly Standard magazine features a lengthy article about pro-life activist Randall Terry.

Writer Matt Labash spent a week with Terry, his family, and Terry’s band of pro-life renegades at Terry’s “bunkhouse” in West Virginia (formerly a Catholic group home for adults with Down syndrome).

The result was a well-written piece that keeps one engaged to the end. Labash captured Terry’s eccentricities without dismissing him as a nut and left open the door that Terry just may be a pro-life savant.

The impetus for Labash’s article was Terry’s latest project, which is to air his uniquely produced pro-life ads in strategic areas across the U.S., with a simple goal of suppressing Obama supporters from voting and losing Obama the election.

Before the explanation, here are the ads. The first is entitled, “Uncle Tom Jackson: Carrying water for racists,” taking on actor Samuel Jackson for his “WAKE THE F*** UP” pro-Obama ad

Pro-life candidate draws death threats over graphic ads

Pro-life activist Gary Boisclair is creating quite a stir in his primary bid against Muslim Democrat incumbent Congressman Keith Ellison in Minnesota’s 5th District, up to and including death threats.

Boisclair freely admits he is running against Ellison solely to take advantage of federal law that forces television stations to air federal candidates’ ads uncensored.

Boisclair is airing three graphic ads, one on Ellison’s support of abortion, one on the underbelly of Ellison’s religion, and one on a combination of the two issues….
