“An early miscarriage is just some mess on a napkin.”
These words, spoken by Pennsylvania state legislator Wendy Ullman, represent the thoughts and feelings of an alarming number of progressives in America today. They may not utter those words out of fear of being labeled “insensitive,” but talking to hundreds of people with similar perspectives over the years has led me to the conclusion that to justify abortion, this is exactly how many progressives feel.
Pennsylvania Family Institute Video: PA State Rep Wendy Ullman claims a miscarriage is “just a mess on a napkin”
In one of the most insensitive comments ever uttered by a Pennsylvania State legislator, Representative Wendy Ullman (D-Bucks) complained about a bill dealing with a healthcare facility’s handling of miscarried or aborted babies, calling it a fuss over what she called “a mess on a napkin.”
Ullman’s callous comments came during a House Health Committee meeting on House Bill 1890, which would require healthcare facilities to either bury or cremate unborn children who have died from an abortion or miscarriage. This bill is similar to one passed in the state of Indiana that was recently upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.
“A miscarriage, no matter how early, does not result in a ‘mess on a napkin’ but the loss of a child,” commented Tom Shaheen, Vice President for Policy for Pennsylvania Family Institute. “Each human life deserves respect, even when lost at an early stage in development.”
As someone whose best friend nearly died at the hospital after going through an early miscarriage less than two years ago, I can say from experience I saw much more than a napkin’s worth of blood. But that’s not even the point. Many miscarriages do result in limited blood and tissue loss as the preborn child in early stages of development leave his or her mother’s body. That doesn’t take away from reality of what had just died. It was a person and the push for burial or cremation is as righteous as asking for the same treatment for the body of an adult who had just died.
Much controversy will come from Ullman’s callous words, but the sentiment of disregard is that most troubling aspect. Some will linger on the insensitivity of her remarks. I’m more concerned about the base ideology driving her to say it.

New Conservative Network Seeks Crowdfunding Help
They say we have to go big or go home. We’re trying to go big and bring the patriotic truth the the nation, but we need help.
Readers may or may not realize that over the past year, we’ve been bringing more conservative news and opinion outlets under our wing. Don’t take our expansion as a sign of riches; all of the “acquisitions” have been through sweat and promises of greater things to come for all involved. As a result, we’ve been able to bring together several independent media sites under a unified vision of preventing America from succumbing to the progressive, “woke,” Neo-Marxist ideologies that are spreading like wildfire across America.
The slow and steady reopening of America is revealing there was a lot more economic hardship brought about from the Covd-19 lockdowns than most realize. While we continue to hope advertising dollars on the sites go up, it’s simply not enough to do things the right way. We are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $3000-$7000 per month. In other words, we’re in the red and hemorrhaging.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring the truth to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going.
Thank you and God Bless,
