BREAKING: Federal judge sides with ACLU: orders illegal alien to get free abortions

Published

on

UPDATE: The Washington Post is reporting that U.S. District Court Judge Tanya S. Chutkan has ordered the Trump administration to provide an abortion to the 17-year-old illegal alien. This is a travesty and an absolute moral evil.

Instead of protecting life, the ACLU wants to guarantee illegal aliens the right to kill their babies–even teenage unwed mothers–in America. Not much of “civil liberties” there.

Background

In a Texas case, a Central American teen was placed in a facility contracted by a little-known agency called the Office of Refugee Resettlement. ORR contracts out hundreds of facilities to handle the flow of refugees and unaccompanied minor illegal immigrants, and its parent is the Department of Health and Human Services.

The pregnant teen sought an abortion, because she was worried her parents might abuse her because of her pregnancy. Texas law requires parental permission, or that of a judge for a minor to undergo an abortion procedure. So attorneys tried to get a judge to sign off. But Texas officials arranged for the girl to talk to pregnancy care center volunteers and refused to bring her to an abortion clinic (at taxpayer expense).

The ACLU is up in arms that anyone would be denied what they see as a basic human right to kill unborn babies.

The case is ironic because HHS just released its strategic plan, including language that recognizes the personhood of unborn babies. But the issue of unaccompanied minors and illegal aliens is being used by liberals to push their agenda for abortion on demand.

Analysis

The abortion industry loves getting taxpayer money, although Planned Parenthood officially says just 3% of their “services” are abortions. It’s a cooked number, since handing out a pamphlet is considered a “service” in their reports. In fact, just about all PP does is abortions. They do nothing else–not mammograms, not well checks, just baby killing.

But another fact is that if Planned Parenthood lost its funding, they’d get more than enough money–probably many times what they receive from the government–from private donations by people like George Soros and grassroots liberals who buy coathanger jewelry.

What the abortion industry would love more than anything is for America to become an open-borders country, with taxpayer-funded abortions for all. This case is one of their attempts to set that precedent.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton opposes this, noting in an amicus brief that “(n)o federal court has ever declared that unlawfully-present aliens with no substantial ties to this country have a constitutional right to abortion on demand. The Court should decline to break that new ground.” He’s joined by the attorneys general of Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma and South Carolina in his opposition.

Liberals are Exploiting an Illegal Immigrant to Push Free Abortions for Non-Citizens | LifeNews.com

http://www.lifenews.com/2017/10/18/liberals-are-exploiting-an-illegal-immigrant-to-push-free-abortions-for-non-citizens/The story of a pregnant teenager, an illegal alien, has captured attention as the American Civil Liberties Union and abortion industry argue the United States should open its doors to all seeking abortion. According to reports, the girl said she sought an abortion because she was worried her parents might abuse her if they found out she was pregnant. However, Texas officials refused to allow the girl to be taken from state care to an abortion facility.

Justice for the unborn: HHS defines life as ‘beginning at conception’

http://noqreport.com/2017/10/17/justice-unborn-hhs-defines-life-beginning-conception/Last week, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) changed its strategic plan for 2018-2022 in order to protect the unborn. Background Previously, the plan stated in its introduction that “HHS accomplishes its mission through programs and initiatives that cover a wide spectrum of activities, serving Americans at every stage of life.” The new…

Final Thoughts

This case is just one example of how the liberal ACLU and the abortion industry are using the court system to subvert the policy goals of the Trump administration, the rights of states to regulate and enforce their own laws, and to create a Mecca of sorts for unlimited, taxpayer-funded abortions for illegal aliens in America.

This needs to be shut down unequivocally by the courts. The next steps will be using Christian organizations’ opposition to abortion on moral grounds to strip them of federal funding and ORR contracts. This will harm actual refugees, forcing churches to withdraw their services. They’ve already done this with adoption, using same-sex marriage to end Catholic adoption agencies in states like Massachusetts.

    If we get a Convention of States, we need to change the constitution that prevents our Courts from having the final say. That would be our Check. Otherwise they will take us to their final checkmate and the true tyranny can begin.

    These people hate American and want socialism and a culture that allows them to rape, plunder, steal and murder as much as they like. It just makes them feel good. No different than real drugs.

    Also abortion on demand is great for advancing free love and sexual liberation of women. Men too will benefit.

      Congress has authority over the courts, except the Supreme Court. Were we to change the Supreme Court’s jurisdiction, that I fear would give too much power to Congress and the Executive. What we need is a Congress with a spine.

        The Supreme Count is to be the weaker of the three branches. To override a Supreme Court decisions should be just as difficult to overriding a veto of a bill.

The Obamacare Debacle: Why we need a second political party

Published

on

By

Sometimes you simply hope that your predictions will be wrong and that events will miraculously turn out differently; unfortunately, this is not one of those times. Most people with a modicum of common sense anticipated that the Republicans would now take the blame for the troubles of Obamacare, and that has come to pass.  The aphorism ‘You broke it, you bought it’ comes to mind, and while somewhat unfair to the situation, perception is reality in the world of politics.

Tear it down and start over.

While not endeavoring to reign blows upon a deceased equine, this is why the Republican party needed to keep its promise on Obamacare. It’s also the reason why it’s time to sweep away the old and begin anew with a brand new second major political party. That phrase was deliberately used because it has become quite evident that the Republican and Democratic parties have started to merge in far too many ways.

The Obamacare debacle is a prime illustration of this unfortunate merging. O’Sullivan’s First Law explains this to a fair degree since the denizens of a certain party will – over time – want to keep the bureaucratic levers of power with the false idea that they can have it run more efficiently. Besides the simple expedient of term limits, a new party could start anew with a mandate to avoid this political trap.

An illustration from the world of engineering seems more than appropriate in this instance. There are times when a machine or structure has become so riddled with worn out or failed components that it is far better to simply scrap or tear it down and build something from scratch. The aphorism is to start with a clean sheet of paper such that the old assumptions and constructs are swept away in favor of something entirely new and innovative. “We’ve always done it this way” is replaced with questioning skepticism with regard to what works, and what doesn’t.

Existing components that have proven to be of service can be utilized in the new construct but only if they meet certain criteria, not simply because they are carried along with everything else of the old. By the same token, members of the old party can become a vital part of the new but only if they are up to the task.

The final word on the Republican party.

It is more than likely that the people responsible for that bureaucratic mess will use it to good political advantage against those who opposed it in the first place. We should be getting rid of governmental interference in the free market, but instead will see a complete control with national socialist healthcare [i.e., the ‘single payer’ deception].

There is no other choice than to limit the damage now with a new party that will stay true to conservative principles. The results of the alternative are too horrible to contemplate.

Chuck Schumer threatens Obamacare fix over GOP tax bill repealing individual mandate

Chuck Schumer threatens Obamacare fix over GOP tax bill repealing individual mandate

Chuck Schumer went after the GOP’s proposed tax plan today, saying the bill the Democrats currently support to bail out Obamacare, Alexander-Murray, will not get their support if Obamacare’s individual mandate is repealed.

“Any Republican senator who thinks they can pass the individual mandate and then turn around and get Alexander-Murray passed is dead wrong.”

The Senate Minority Leader has supported the plan to save the Affordable Care Act, but is now holding it hostage to try to preserve the individual mandate that forces millions of Americans to pay for health insurance they don’t want.

Chuck Schumer: Democrats won’t back Alexander-Murray if Obamacare individual mandate is repealed

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/chuck-schumer-democrats-wont-back-alexander-murray-if-obamacare-individual-mandate-is-repealed/article/2640780Republicans on Tuesday added repeal of the individual mandate, which requires Americans to purchase health insurance or pay a fine, to their tax overhaul bill. Senate GOP leaders also said that if it were to pass, they would also be willing to take up a bipartisan bill known as Alexander-Murray, which includes payments to insurers and flexibility for states. The proposal was meant to win over centrist Republicans, who worry about some of the projections from the Congressional Budget Office showing that 13 million more people would be uninsured in a decade if the individual mandate were to be repealed.

It’s a health issue: The left opens up a new front in the war on liberty

Its a health issue The left opens up a new front in the war on liberty

The desire for control has differentiated Left from Right, now the Left is using health concerns to further this effort

The desire for control on the part of the Left is the main difference between the two sides of the political divide. As a general rule, Left continually advocates increased government control with everything from taxation to climate change. One of the Left’s newest methods is to use health issues with nary a concern over those pesky notions of liberty and freedom.

The Left began using this with the 2nd amendment, with everyone’s health and safety taking precedent over that restraint on the government. And now they are expanding the assault, moving into the areas of free-speech

The Leftist case for restricting liberty due to health concerns

Back in June the LA Times published an Op-ed basing the need for restricting free-speech on health issues:

The case for restricting hate speech

http://beta.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-nielsen-free-speech-hate-20170621-story.htmlIn fact, empirical data suggest that frequent verbal harassment can lead to various negative consequences. Racist hate speech has been linked to cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, and requires complex coping strategies. Exposure to racial slurs also diminishes academic performance. Women subjected to sexualized speech may develop a phenomenon of “self-objectification,” which is associated with eating disorders.

And most recently the New York Times published an opinion piece titled: We’re Sick of Racism, Literally In that opinion piece, the author asserts that one doesn’t even experience racism ‘in person’ to have an adverse impact on their health:

Worse, we know that racism doesn’t have to be experienced in person to affect our health — taking it in the form of news coverage is likely to have similar effects.

The piece concludes with this:

We shouldn’t need the specter of disease to denounce hatred in all its forms. Racism, bigotry, sexism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, homophobia, xenophobia, should have no place in our society. But the illness associated with discrimination adds injury to insult and magnifies the suffering of these times.

The Takeaway

One can easily see where this is going to lead. Soon enough it will be more important to remove the restraints of the 1st and 2nd amendments on the government due to health concerns – no matter the consequences to liberty – because who can argue against better health for everyone?

The problem is that history has shown that increasing Leftist control has always lead to far worse consequences than detailed in these opinion pieces.
