Planned Parenthood Reports Abortion Rate Up By More Than 8,000 in One Year

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/planned-parenthood-reports-record-aborti

Monday, March 07, 2011
(CNSNews.com) – Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Web site shows that it performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. According to a fact sheet published in February 2011, Planned Parenthood clinics in 2009 performed 332,278 abortions – up from 324,008 in 2008, or a 2.5 percent increase.
Planned Parenthood also distributed more than 1.5 million emergency contraception kits, which contain hormones that can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in a women’s uterus.
Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, according to its annual report.
Although federal law prohibits direct taxpayer funding of abortion, critics of Planned Parenthood claim the millions of dollars given to the organization (through Title X family planning appropriations) frees up other funds that can be used to perform and promote the procedure.
In 2009, Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) introduced legislation to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that receive taxpayer money. Last month, Pence offered the legislation as an amendment to a new continuing resolution (CR) that Congress had until March 4 to pass, replacing the CR put in place by the lame duck session after the November mid-term elections.
But Pence’s amendment was dropped from the two-week extension of the CR, which Congress passed on Thursday, and even though he voted for the extension, Pence said on the House floor the same day that he would not give up the fight to defund Planned Parenthood and the health care law signed by President Barack Obama last year.
“The time to put our fiscal house in order is now,” Pence said. “No more delays. No more kicking the cans. Let’s have the debate. Let’s hash it out. Let’s defund Obamacare. Let’s defund Planned Parenthood.”
Pro-life advocates have already reacted to the amendment being dropped from the CR and are mounting efforts to make sure it is included in a longer term provision that will be taken up by Congress on March 18.
“The onus is now on the Senate to ensure that Americans are no longer forced to fund the nation’s largest abortion provider with their tax dollars,” Charmaine Yoest, president of American United for Life Action, said in a statement.
“The Government ought to spend its time and our money funding things that matter to the American people — not subsidizing the abortion industry and funding corrupt organizations like Planned Parenthood,” Yoest said.
Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has mounted a major lobbying campaign in the Senate to fight efforts to strip the organization of its federal funding.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richard – who was paid $385,163, plus another $11,876 in benefits and deferred compensation for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2008, according to the organization’s annual report – has been trying to rally supporters. At a rally on Feb. 28 in New York City, Richard claimed that efforts to defund Planned Parenthood came from “extreme leadership” in the House.
“The extreme leadership in the House of Representatives voted to completely eliminate the nation’s family planning program that serves 5 million women every single year,” Richards said. “Then they aimed both guns at the largest single provider of women’s health care in America, Planned Parenthood, ending our ability to provide lifesaving cancer screenings, birth control, sex education through any federal program.
“The House of Representatives has declared a war on women’s health care, and we’re here to say not without a fight,” Richards said.
According to Planned Parenthood’s fact sheet, one number did go down in 2009. The number of abortions for 2008 numbered 2,405, with only 977 adoption referrals made in 2009.

Lamb Of God Lyrics - Dead Seeds

And you may tremble before Hell's gates
You may watch as the Heavens fall
And you may sleight the hands of fate
You may heed the tyrants call!

And you may reach every golden shore
Witness repent in the heathen
And you may dance in the sands of the war
You may sleep in the cradle of Eden

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

And you may walk through the river run dry
You may strike down the giant with stone
And you may never again speak a lie
Confess every sin and atone

And you may drink from the infidel's blood
As a civilization collapses
You may rejoice in the cleanse of the flood
And stare into the face of apocalypse

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

You will not comprehend
Or find words that will describe
The will of god and man
Until you watch someone die

Betrayed your prophets
Dead seeds buried deep
An army of none
We'll prey on the weak

SWEDEN’s rapid rise of the anti-MUSLIM immigrant party

http://barenakedislam.wordpress.com/2010/09/15/swedens-rapid-rise-of-the-anti-muslim-immigrant-party/

SWEDEN’s rapid rise of the anti-MUSLIM immigrant party


Jimmie Akesson, 31, the leader of the Sweden Democrats, does not believe in a soft sell: He wants to cut immigration by 90 percent, and he thinks that the growth of Sweden’s Muslim population is the country’s biggest foreign threat since World War II.

NY TIMES Malmo, Sweden, which is seen by many people as a guardian of liberalism and tolerance, has never elected to Parliament a member of any party who campaigned openly against immigration. That could change in elections on Sunday.
Opinion polls suggest that the Sweden Democrats will exceed the 4 percent threshold needed to reach Parliament. An alliance of center-right parties appears to have a narrow overall lead, according to the surveys, but the Sweden Democrats could hold the balance of power, something that could create a political crisis.
That prospect has jolted a nation in which even some of Mr. Akesson’s fiercest critics now acknowledge that too little has been done to integrate immigrants. (Muslims don’t want to integrate) Political analysts also say that the rise of the populist right shows that Sweden is being buffeted by broad political currents familiar in other European countries.

For most of the last century, Social Democrats dominated politics here, but in 2006 the center-right Moderates came to power under Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt. This time, the parties are standing as competing blocs: one from the center-right, led by the Moderates, and one from the center-left, led by the Social Democratic leader Mona Sahlin, who in running for prime minister could become the first woman to hold that job in Sweden if she is elected.
Though sidelined from much of the official campaign, the Sweden Democrats have nonetheless attracted attention. Their biggest coup involved a blunt 30-second advertisement that showed a white pensioner being overtaken by a group of Muslim women in burqas as they rushed toward a line for welfare payments.
One station refused at first to broadcast the ad, before agreeing to do so with parts obscured. The ad generated enormous publicity and made the Sweden Democrats appear to be victims of censorship.

In a televised debate on Sunday, Mr. Reinfeldt and Ms. Sahlin ruled out working with the Sweden Democrats if their coalitions did not win an absolute majority.
But Mr. Akesson, speaking before the debate, said he thought the Moderates could find themselves in need of his party to form a governing majority. “I think now, if you look at the polls, it is not impossible for the right alliance to get a full majority,” he said. “But if they don’t, they need us to stay in government.”


Malmo, Sweden set on fire by Muslim rioters
Mr. Akesson contended that his party could win as much as 8 percent of the vote. “We are quite confident,” he said. “We are underestimated in those polls. We have grown a lot since the last elections.”
The populist right has been helped by structural changes in politics, analysts say. The collectivist, egalitarian ideas that have been associated with Sweden for decades are fading. The debate over immigration in Sweden mirrors the debate elsewhere in Europe, where economic pressures have exacerbated tensions over the role of Islam on the continent.
“There is a general change in Swedish society,” Ms. Madestam said. “Social democratic ideas are losing their grip on Sweden, and we are getting more and more individualistic. These collectivist ideas are not so strong.”
Ibrahim Baylan, the national secretary of the opposition Social Democrats, who came to Sweden from Turkey when he was 10, said the recession and unemployment were largely responsible for the rise of the populist right. (No, the Muslim problem is the reason)
At the main mosque and Islamic center in Malmo, Beyzat Becirov, who came to Sweden from Yugoslavia more than 40 years ago, said  there had been dozens of attacks on the mosque, including a serious fire in 2003. In one office, he pointed to a window with a bullet hole. As for Mr. Akesson’s Sweden Democrats, he said that their support was not substantial, before adding, “But Hitler’s support started small.” (How pathetic, Muslims trying align themselves with the Holocaust) H/T Susan K

IslamoFascist sympathizing Left Wing thugs carve a swastika onto Right Wing politician’s forehead.


A Swedish far-right politician is recovering from a shocking hate crime attack from Leftists, who viciously carved a swastika into his forehead.
Swedish newspaper The Local reports that two masked attackers forced themselves into the Malmo apartment of Swedish Democrat politician David von Arnold Antoni on Friday night.
One of the masked men held Antoni down while the other used a knife to carve a swastika into the 24-year-old politician’s forehead, the paper reports. Anti-racist and left-wing extremist political graffiti was spray painted on Antoni’s home earlier that day, reports Stockholm News.
No suspects have been arrested on the attack on Antoni, who is active the the Swedish Democrats youth group SDU and is running on the party line for the Malmo City Council and the region. Police are looking for clues in a counter-demonstration held by 500 anti-racists the day before that disrupted a meeting of the far-right group.LINK H/T American Me

You wouldn’t eat moss. But, then again, you’re no iceman

You wouldn’t eat moss. But, then again, you’re no iceman.


It's a darn feast!: When I die, my stomach will be so full of moss, scientists of the future will be ecstatic.
 

It's a darn feast!: When I die, my stomach will be so full of moss, scientists of the future will be ecstatic.Courtesy Martin LaBarThat little devil Otzi is in the news again.
I readily acknowledge the fact that I haven’t lived my life quite up to Otzi standards—I don’t have any tattoos (that I know of), I’ve never killed anybody (that I know of), I don’t own a cape…the list goes on—but I hope that when hikers find my frozen corpse, thousands of years in the future, they’ll be as thrilled with it as they are with Otzi. Honestly, every millimeter of our leathery friend is getting the once over and the double take.

Scientists figured out what Otzi’s last meal was years ago (they practically dove into his stomach), but they’re still going over the most minute of minutia of the iceman’s guts. And, you know what? I’m into it.

Archaeobotanists and moss-experts are the last to have taken a swing at Otzi. They have found trace remains of six different kinds of moss in Otzi’s intestines, and were able to identify them under a microscope. None of those moss varieties, interestingly, are the kinds of moss that you’d eat (if there are any kinds of moss you’d eat). They do, nonetheless, add to the details of Otzi’s life.

One of the kinds of moss, the scientists guess, was used to wrap one of Otzi’s last meals (sort of a fuzzy saran wrap, I guess), another probably got into his water, and another was most likely used as a dressing for a wound (he probably chewed it up and swallowed a little). At least one of the mosses, however it got into him, isn’t known to grow in the region where Otzi was found, adding another location to Otzi’s travel diary. So cross that off your bucket list, little dude.

None of this information is insulating my attic, or buying me dinner, but I still think it’s pretty cool. The same sort of forensic techniques we might use to solve a murder today are being used to learn about the life of a guy who died 53 centuries ago. I like it.
