Disgusting Marcotte: Pro-lifers drove women to Gosnell’s house of horrors

How does she feel? Like this:

So, those who believe in the sanctity of human life are ultimately responsible for the women and babies who died at the hands of Kermit Gosnell? Marcotte’s intellectual acrobatics are truly twisted — and downright dangerous.

That’s what happens at abortion clinics, Amanda. Murdering actual babies.

Pardon our French, but what the hell is wrong with this woman?

Marcotte thinks she’s entitled to credit for her previous work exposing Gosnell:

So, what sort of work did she do?

In her “coverage,” Marcotte’s urged readers to be skeptical about the reports that women and children were killed and made pro-life activists the enemy.

Here’s how the article concludes:

These particular charges involve late-term abortion, and all I could think upon reading the news story was, “I wish these women could have gone to Dr. George Tiller,” because he was renowned for the quality of care provided at his Kansas clinic.  But sadly, that wasn’t even an option, even for those who could afford it, as Dr. Tiller’s life was taken by an anti-choice extremist in 2009.  When vacuums are created, we shouldn’t be surprised when they suck in a bunch of junk.

It takes a special kind of sick to spew that kind of filth.

Absolutely loathsome.

    Pro-Choicers by definition are also pro-abortion or pro-death. One cannot be pro-Choice unless one is willing to accept that it’s ok for a mother to kill her unborn human.

    • Scott Anderson

      The claim she’s making is based on the typical rhetoric that if you ban abortions, women will be driven to “back-alley” abortionists and many will die due to incompetent surgery.

      Trouble is, that rhetoric is about a hypothetical situation in which abortion is outlawed. Abortion is not outlawed in America — nor in Pennsylvania. Gosnell’s clinic was not “underground;” it was, by appearances, a government-permitted abortion mill.

      In fact, despite performing illegal late-term abortions, it still got no inspections or negative sanctions from the state — specifically, the Grand Jury report stated, due to pro-choice politics, which demanded that, contrary to the law, no abortion clinic should have any inspections or scrutiny.

        Aren’t they insane? So essentially if Abortion were made illegal, women are such out of control idiots, that they would actively seek to break the law?
        And they claim Pro-Lifers have a low opinion of women. We don’t. But obviously the poor-choicers do. RME

      • Devin Andrew Ring Cassidy

        Since rape is illegal and dangerous for the rapist, we should make it legal and provide raperooms for rapists to more safely attack their victims. It’s the same logic. It doesn’t matter if some women will still do it if it’s illegal, the whole point of outlawing it is because it is wrong and gravely affects an innocent, third party who has no say.

      And in this case, we also have a “Doctor” killing live babies outside the womb.

    • Elke E. Wilhelm

      Wait, so this dumb libtard b*tch is saying that the people who are AGAINST abortion are the ones responsible for these women going to this abortionist. That sounds like liberal logic to me. :/

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Yes, Conservatives want clinics shut down, and rightly so, so yes, indirectly, by shuttering those clinics, we’re driving women to back-alleys to get the child cut out of their womb.

        I’d like to raise the BS flag here on this disgusting troglodyte.

  • AaronHarrisinAlaska

    When West Buro got up to do its thing many people were quick to point and say “typical Christians” the Christian community rose up in rage against what WB was doing and proved that the “church” in no way represented modern Christian belief.
    Why can’t Choicers do the same with Gosnell? Why can’t they point out how monstrous this man is? Why can’t they rage against the people who knew he was doing this years ago but said nothing? Why can’t they rage against the unsafe working conditions he put his staff in, both mental and physical? Why can’t they do what they say when claiming to support “safe, clean, abortions” and throw this man off the cliff? Because, to do so would be an “attack on the reproductive rights of women.” Never mind that their silence does more harm to it.

        100% this. They’ll do everything in their power to keep the light off of these murders. Once people realize what the “culture of abortion” (to steal Brit Hume’s phrase) is all about, they’ll start to question whether it’s a path we want to be on.

        That’s a conversation they will do everything to avoid. Snipped infants be damned!

          There’s another charnel house in DE. Prob. many more. And just wait until nurse’ aides and “nurse practitioners” can conduct these murders.

      • AaronHarrisinAlaska

        Many Choicers already make a distinction between a baby and a fetus. Scientifically speaking the word fetus refers to a state of development, in the same regard as neonat, child, adolescent, adult, geriatric, etc. but not to them. The huge problem here is that Gosnell was killing babies. Babies by their own definition. Actual babies. And that’s what they don’t want to face, because to do so would be to harm reproductive rights in their opinion, in which case they couldn’t be more wrong.

    • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

      They secretly agree with it, if their abortion doesn’t take they don’t want to be stuck with the baby. Obama has supported legislation that effectively allows abortion doctors to do the same thing Gosnell did so why would he speak out against it?

      • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/YJ5G3N25JBSWDNFKBTXEVLR4NU Walt

        And one Obama supporter/potential science czar John Holdren and his colleague Peter Singer wrote a book in the 70’s that advocated for the abortion of a child up tot he age of 2 since before that age the child isn’t self aware. That’s the mentality we’re dealing with here.

    • EnnIsFor

      Liberal and pro-choice here. Gosnell is a monster. Whatever system allowed him to continue working under whatever pretense he was working under needs to be seriously redone. It never should have been allowed to happen, and I’m not sure I can think of a suitable punishment for the “man.”

        The reality is that when you begin to advocate for taking the life of another human being, these types of atrocities are eventually, absolutely going to happen. It is ultimately a downward spiral into a dark and gruesome environment of picking and “choosing” when whose life is more worthwhile, more valuable, than another. So, for you to be disgusted and outraged, quite frankly, puzzles me.

        • Tom Anderson

          Killing the elderly will be the next thing. Human life has no value anymore. Cant get more in your face then it is now. Selective breeding, euthanasia, letting the gangs and murderers thin the herd.

      Because they were black babies and the president supports that and guess what buy their lack of opposition the black Christian community supports it too. The white Christian community is afraid of being called racist.

    • A. G. Gomez

      The doctor is black, the majority of aborted babies were black, the president supports abortion (via planned parenthood) and the black Christian community isn’t complaining. The white Christian community has been beaten down so badly by the black Christian community they are afraid of being called racist, again. The end result is no one cares that these babies were murdered in this fashion for years. See what happens when you play the race card at the wrong times.

    Oh ya gotta love the left’s slant on this- now they are pointing out they DID cover it. If you read the actual Salon article, it is not about the horror of what Gosnell did but how those nasty pro lifers killed George Tiller and now these poor women have to go to people like Gosnell. What a load of crapola . These women shouldn’t have gotten “help” from anyone if they were going to the doctor at 26-30 weeks pregnant.

      Tiller was in Kansas I believe. Gosnell in PA. By this lunatic’s (Marcotte) logic, women in the PA area were flocking to Kansas for late term abortions until Tiller was killed, thus forcing them to Gosnell. SMH.

  • John Taznar

    Would Marcotte have viewed this “underground clinic” being shut down for health violations as an attack on women?

    • rennyangel2

      Where was it underground? The ninth circle?

      • http://amandakmelson.wordpress.com/ GreenEyedGal

        There was nothing underground about it. DoH officials visited there regularly to collect blood samples. Never reported it. National Abortion Federation denied Gosnell admittance after visiting and noting the horrors. Never reported it. Board of Medicine “investigated” Gosnell by performing an off-site interview. Never visited the clinic, never talked to victim who filed the complaint. Dismissed it as unfounded! It was NEVER underground. It was all above ground. The only reason he was exposed is that he ran an illegal pill mill from the clinic! Otherwise, he’d still be butchering women and babies today.

        • rennyangel2

          I was making a sacrcastic or ironic joke–the “ninth circle” comes from Dante’s Inferno and is the ninth circle of hell–the worst hell can get–i.e., Gosnell “clinic.”

          Basically this man made a fortune taking advantage of poor women, sending many of them to the emergency room when this quack screwed up, & the pro-abortion crowd looked the other way even knowing what was going on. wasn’t the rational for making abortion legal to keep this sort of thing from happening? yet still women go to places like this & planned parenthood to be taken out by ambulance when the mangla-esque “doctors” damage the mother’s womb. how many women who got abortions in their teenage years found out later in life that the Abortion doctor’s blundering had left them sterile?

          • shimauma

            One of the things that got me so worked up yesterday is how the left has twisted this whole thing to make it somehow “the right’s” fault. You see, according to them, if abortion was legal up to and including natural childbirth at nine months, women wouldn’t have gone to Gosnell for an abortion! It’s because abortion is illegal after 24 weeks that these poor women had to go to him. And it’s illegal because conservatives are heartless!

            Only the left can take what is an absolutely beautiful, uniquely feminine gift – pregnancy and childbirth – and make considerable progress turning it into something to be reviled! At the same time, they take something that is horribly gruesome and despicable – the murder, the literal stabbing in the neck, suctioning out brains of the most helpless, the most defenseless in our society – and claim it is something worthy to be heralded and praised.

            It makes me so sick and so angry I can hardly bear it.

  • TocksNedlog

    So . . . she’s mad at Roe v. Wade for allowing states to restrict late-term abortions, but she AGREES that what Gosnell did constitutes murder; but, then again, she wishes that there were many more ‘good’ late-term abortion doctors out there, along with more states that allowed late-term abortions.

    “Gosnell admitted to Detective Wood that at least 10 to 20 percent of the fetuses were probably older than 24 weeks in gestation – even though Pennsylvania law prohibits abortions after 24 weeks. In some instances, surgical incisions had been made at the base of the fetal skulls.”

    Gosnell admitted he did it!

    Some people just will not admit he did this until he is legally found guilty. And even then some *still* will not admit to it after.

  • R1486

    I do not support abortions past the first trimester, but to label all abortions infanticide is just plain wrong. Infanticide is the intentional killing of infants. The term infant is typically applied to young children between the ages of 1 month and 12 months. A fetus is not an infant so by definition aborting a fetus can not be infanticide because an infant has to be born in the first place THEN killed.

    • rennyangel2

      A live baby born at any stage that can breathe and cry is a PERSON.

      Uhhh, no, on seven counts that they know of Gosnell delivered seven infants alive and whole before severing their spinal columns. Once born alive, all the way out, US law states its a person. Semantics are irrelevant. Infant, newborn, neonat: they’re all the same

    “Pro-lifers drove women to Gosnell’s house of horrors.”

    That logic makes no sense. If ‘Pro-lifers” drove these women anywhere. It would be to a hospice, hospital or mid wife. To give birth and have and keep the baby(ies). Or put them up for adoption.

      Or not getting pregnant in the first place!

      Look, I know accidents happen (and rape) but let me be clear, the majority of unwanted pregnancies could have easily been prevented. And there are double barrier methods! And tons of other options. I only got pregnant once I “chose” to get pregnant, and I managed to avoid any unwanted pregnancies up through my late 30’s. It’s really not that hard!

      Of course, it might be hard for liberals because it requires, you know…personal responsibility.

    It’s pretty evident that Marcotte heard the word “abortion” and instinctively reacted without even bothering to read about the story.

    According to the Grand Jury report “Under Governor Robert Casey [pro-life], she

    said, the department inspected abortion facilities annually. Yet, when Governor Tom

    Ridge[pro-abortion] came in, the attorneys interpreted the same
    regulations that had permitted annual inspections for years to no longer
    authorize those inspections. Then, only complaint driven inspections
    supposedly were authorized. Staloski said that DOH’s policy during
    Governor Ridge’s administration was motivated by a desire not to be
    “putting a barrier up to women” seeking abortions”.

    The lack of oversight (that continued under Rendell) is completely due
    to pro abortion Governors not wanting to be seen as limiting access to
    abortion. The responsibility for this monstrosity being able to do his
    dirty work uninterrupted is 100 percent on them.

    sex ed NOT taught in schools!? There are some of those sick perverts from Planned parenthood going into GRADE SCHOOLS and teaching children how to masturbate!!!! Those women are little more then pedophiles! If a 30 yr old man taught that to the SAME CHILDREN on the playground he’d be arrested and sentenced to at least 6 months in jail. But let some sick putrid psycho from planned parenthood do it in school while the psychopathic teacher looks on grinning, then it’s called “Sex education”.

    And children have been taught sex ed for decades! When are these morons going to stop with these OUT-DATED LIES?! The problem HAS NEVER BEEN THAT CHILDREN aren’t being taught about sex! The problem is that these god-forsaken half-wits ONLY teach children the mechanics of sex and NEVER the moral components of it!

    What these psychotic pigs do is essentially hand children a stick of dynamite and matches and then sit back and wait for those who are stupid enough to (figuratively speaking for those who aren’t bright enough to figure that out on your own) light the stick of dynamite so they can rush in and “fix the problem” at planned parenthood. OH and of course THEY bare “No Responsibility” for that whatsoever. Oh no! That’s strictly the child’s or the parents fault! RME!!!!

  • doughpro

    Woman is truly a slimeball.

    If it’s okay to kill the most innocent among us, why is it wrong to kill those who may be deemed not-so-innocent?

    There was a time when men considered their wives as property, and were able to treat them in any manner they desired. Due to our evolving into a more “civilized” society, that is now no longer the case.

    Why is a woman allowed to consider her unborn child as “property” and given the okay to kill it on a whim? Is that how a “civilized” society acts?

  • Sassy3000

    And Teaching young girls that as much as psychotic screeching far-left femi-nasties claim, Good guys STILL ONLY want to marry good girls! A dirty little secret that don’t want ANY GIRL to find out!

    and no one is saying that it’s okay for the boys to have sex outside of marriage either. Another of the putrid lies that psychopaths LOVE to pull out of thin air.

    And studies have proven that the longer you wait to have sex, the more satisfying it is. like keeping it for marriage.

    The liars who’ve probably LONG SINCE forgotten who their first one even was, don’t want any girls waiting lest they be alone. Claiming it’s unreasonable over and over and over again is bound to convince SOME young people of that BS! Sadly some teens are actually stupid enough to trust the word of some pathological lying adults!

    I’m reminded of that wonderful speech made by a Henry Fonda in the original ‘Yours Mine and Ours’.

    When his teenage step-daughter said her boyfriend said “Everyone else was doing it and that she was just being a baby.”

    He responded with “I don’t know. The same idiots were spreading the SAME rumor when I was your age but if everyone was doing it, why did I keep ending up with the ones who didn’t”.

    then he told her that “Love isn’t a love-in. It’s the dishes and the orthodontist and choosing ground round instead of steak. And I’ll tell you something else. It isn’t going to bed with a man that proves your in love with him. It’s getting up and facing the drab wonderful everyday world with him that counts.” AMEN!!!!

    Sadly the liars have made GREAT INROADS INTO THE SCHOOLS by peddling the same old LAME-AZZ lies that they were back in the psychotic 60’s! Back then the excuse for such babbling stupidity was written off as the influence of drugs. I guess not much has changed.

  • WebsterCat

    I say get the lawyers involved. Let it be known that any woman who has ever had an abortion and thinks she was lied to or unfairly treated medically or otherwise, allow her to sue the murder who did this.

I don’t think they would have been going to tiller regardless if he was alive or not. It is a matter of the space time continuum. Moreover Tiller was killed in 2009. Gosnell has been doing this a lot longer than that. SO they could have went to them if they had wished. Just proves how stupid her argument is.

    wait now the liberal line when one of its killers gets busted is it was an underground clinic ? Did this hack not get paid by some government agency insurance company cash money or maybe planned parenthood ?

    These women have a choice! To use Birth control and not to get pregnant. Murder is never right.

    Amanda Marcotte
    Pro-choicers support quality women’s
    health care, and are the enemies of those who force women into
    underground clinics like Gosnell’s.

    “Underground clinic”, are you serious????? A clinic that is inspected by the state is “underground”? How can there be any “underground clinics” if abortion is legal? Wow you are mind boggling.

    Marcotte has set a new threshold on stupidity.

    As I read this I wonder if it were a cat, dog, any precious animal other than human being chopped up alive, barking, meowing, cowering. I am sick to my core from this tweety freagan hell on earth portrayal of an attempt to discuss the rights of life and death. Talk about distractions my lord humanity sucks. Clueless alive humans seriously try to morally pick sides on right and wrong. There is no right to murder. Its an individual choice to be permissive in our daily life. No seed once planted can reverse its natural progress, All humans are given the right to life by life itself. The shame I feel is my compassion and respect I hold for life. Manipulated by something humanity has no right to question or attempt to control. Individual actions concerning birth. The subject is our permissive life styles and its unintended consequences. America has changed in some regards yet our social attitudes are as they have always been. Separation of classes is a tool utilized to exploit what ever emotional response to distract humanity from its individual purpose. Its family values, cohesiveness holding morality within the inner core while protecting its outside core from the corrosive immoral frictions of pressure constantly pushing attempting to replace family values with community needs. A burden born of interfering with the nature of living to control a hypothetical destiny imagined on L.S.D. Living in a commune is a choice. Having a child is also a choice between two individual humans ideally married or marriage planned by the couple. To create a family to be nurtured and disciplined teaching right and wrong, not abusive. We can not change our cultural corrosion by appeasing, contributing, or supporting its corrupt manifestations of our permissive arrogance. as a nation living in denial. Blink, blink clear our field of vision and breathe a bit of air, remove distractions and focus on reality. Life is good only when good manifests unforced and unadulterated.

    I just read a newspaper article from 1859 Missouri about the lynching of three black men. Two were hung and one was burned at the stake. In a letter to the editor, one the key agitators behind this horrific act blamed the abolitionist movement for the lynchings. History does repeat itself.

    Who is Amanda Marcotte? Is she as important to the American discourse as Meaghan McCain?

  • Mark81150

    I wish she were merely an idiot,.. but she’s actually aiding and abetting evil, which makes her just as bad. Telling people the truth may well make the public’s opinion on abortion pivot hard to pro-life, and that is why she’s lying about this.

    Her “coverage” was to pooh pooh the released facts,.. and to lash out at the pro-life community?

    So she is fine with cutting a baby’s,.. a living screaming baby’s spinal cord, as long as the clinic is sanitary?

    Dear God, this woman is evil to the core.

  • Mark81150

    I’m pro-life, as is my wife, her sisters,.. her cousins.. and they are all democrats, the younger generation is turning away from abortion and the pro-death ghouls know it. We don’t just talk the talk.. my two sis in laws are single mom’s, and both homeless, evicted because they lost their jobs..

    So, my wife and I took them in, all six of them… my nieces and nephews look to me for a father figure, play with our kids like siblings.. family is the answer, as it’s always been. I won’t pretend it isn’t hard, that we don’t have to save where we can.. but there isn’t a day I wish those kids weren’t here, or regret our help to them, even if it’s difficult.

    If I were a liberal, I’d have pressured them to abort.. or sent them to a homeless shelter when they lost their homes.. but these are children,.. each precious, each unique, and I will never send them to a shelter, not family.. if pro-death advocates had any compassion, abortion wouldn’t even be considered.. they put selfishness ahead of anything else.

  • wwbdinct

    Sorry but you are so wrong. I’m not religious at all. So unfortunately for YOU, I guess that blows a big hole into your “well thought out” theory.

  • NRPax

    If these women had access to REAL clinics, the REAL doctors would have told them it was too late to abort

    And these women are just not smart enough to figure that out on their own. Is that what you are saying?

    and talked to them about adoption.

    They could have talked to a doctor about adoption as well.

    When you restrict access to safe abortions, desperate, poor women will find other means.

    And yet, these poor downtrodden desperate women already had access available but they still went to Gosnell. Try again.

    The problem with Republicans is

    That we have to tolerate people like you as part of living in a civilized society.

    And no, I personally don’t believe in abortion, but the only reason you all believe that life begins at conception despite the fact that a fetal heartbeat doesn’t develop until around week 12 is because religion tells you so.

    Science is a pesky thing, no? A human’s fertilized egg will only develop into a baby human. And cell division is a sign of life as well.

    Unfortunately for you, America is not a theocracy. You want faith based laws? Move to Vatican City.

    And if you want abortion mills like Gosnell was running, move to China. They’re big on that business over there.

  • http://cowboybebop.wikia.com/wiki/Faye_Valentine Faye Valentine

    Right. B/c we all know Tiller didn’t have a “2nd Opinion” doctor on-call to rubberstamp all his findings that late-term abortions were essential for mother’s health or anything, regardless of how late-term they were. I mean, it’s not like this non-existent rubberstamper I just mention recently had her license revoked for shoddy bookkeeping, falsifying paperwork, lying about having given pre-abortion interviews, or anything like that.


  • Thomas Wilson

    Conception is the point where a unique genetic code is created and a process begins that if left alone becomes undeniably a human life. The only reason to say a human life begins anywhere other than conception is for convenience. It is a pretty small step from killing a zygote to killing a fetus and small step from killing a fetus to a baby.

  • JR48

    I’m not religious but I’m an RN with a BSN and you can detect a heartbeat at 6 weeks, as well as brain waves. You might want to brush up on your human development.

    And the legal restriction in PA is about fetal viability.

    “At 18 days [when the mother is only four days late for her first menstrual period], and by 21 days (the embryonic heart) is pumping, through a closed circulatory system, blood whose type is different from that of the mother.” (J.M. Tanner, G. R. Taylor, and the Editors of Time-Life Books, Growth, New York: Life Science Library, 1965.) Don’t need religion to tell me when life begins, science has already done a great job with that. And yes my Church believes that life begins at conception. If I believed otherwise, I would join a different Church. They aren’t my mouthpiece, I can speak for myself.

  • NRPax

    You are aware that there was nothing “underground” about his facility, yes?

    As for #3, he’s calling Amanda out on her BS statement that there were people forcing women into these clinics.

  • Thomas Wilson

    “underground” as in hidden in some way.

  • Paladin

    Well that clears it up! Here I thought he had an abortion mill literally buried under the earth! What you’re talking about is a hidden or clandestine abortion mill. That makes sense, because it wasn’t like his abortion mill was on a street corner with a big sign in front advertising what he did or anything.
    When oh when will they make abortion legal in this country so women will stop having to resort to rusty coat hangers in the back alleys and underground abortion mills?

  • http://cowboybebop.wikia.com/wiki/Faye_Valentine Faye Valentine

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Did you even read the story up there AT ALL? The part where Marcotte lamented that if only the hero Tiller were still alive, those poor women could’ve gone to him to get a proper baby-snipping, instead of the sub-par one offered by Gosnell?

  • cgraham77

    Wrong! Transvaginal ultrasounds can detect a heartbeat at 6 weeks.

  • Mickey O’Brien

    5.5-6.5 weeks according to americanpregnancy.org, and many others. http://americanpregnancy.org/pregnancycomplications/earlyfetaldevelopment.htm

  • wwbdinct

    You stated that you don’t believe in abortion either so I guess that makes you stupid too. OK then.

  • cgraham77

    You’re thick. Nobody here is suggesting it literally means “under the ground.”

  • NRPax

    So you are claiming that there were people forcing these women to go to a legal clinic to get abortions that supposedly was underground.

  • Stephen L. Hall

    Commonly used “underground” means a clandestine operation secreted from public viewing. This was a public licensed facility.

    “Force” means mass times acceleration . . . it also means: The application of physical coercion, typically against the person’s will.

    The context of a quote is to be taken from the sentence/paragraph of the quote. As the second quote came from the same sentence, the context is apparent.

    This has been a public service of English 099.

  • 3seven77

    Just. Think. About. It. Emphasis on “think”.

  • shimauma

    no one was saying it was under the ground, they were being sarcastic about the physical location, but they were also pointing out that this man was committing these PLANNED PARENTHOOD APPROVED MURDERS right in broad daylight with all of the federal regulators turning a blind freaking eye!!! His operation was NOT clandestine!! HE HAD NO SHAME ABOUT IT!! and this lack of moral compass was built by libturd pro-abortionists like yourself!!

    From the Wikipedia entry for “seed”:
    A seed is a small embryonic plant enclosed in a covering called the seed coat, usually with some stored food.

    So yes, a grass seed is life. It is a plant covered by a seed coat. Unless you’d like to protest that seeds are not plants. In that case, I suggest you take your qualms up with the Wiki edit page.

    Yes, indeed they can. And if they cannot see a fetal pole and a heartbeat, there is concern that either the reported dates are off (LMP) or that there possibility of fetal demise.

  • Cambria

    How did Pennsylvania legislators “prevent access to real medical clinics”? I seriously doubt that Gosnell ran the only abortion clinic in that state. Just admit that you libs screwed up on the whole pro-choice argument. Abortion is murder and sadly, it takes a case like this to prove that. But you hypocrites will continue to make excuses and try to shift the blame on the right.
    Btw, I am 21 weeks pregnant and my unborn little boy is kicking and moving around like crazy in my belly. But in Pennsylvania, I could walk into an abortion clinic today and have him killed and ripped from my body, thanks to you pro-choicers. You are monsters. Period.

  • cgraham77

    What are you talking about? There’s plenty of sex ed in public schools, and access to birth control. Just ask Kevin Jennings!! He’ll be sure to teach your middle-schooler the fine art of fisting.

  • wwbdinct

    Sex ed is being taught, access to BC is at an all time high and Gosnell was an MD. Are you really Amanda Marcotte? I do agree though – not every woman wants to be a mother. It’s unfortunate that yours decided to be one.

  • BeccaLeigh

    no one is banning sex ed in schools…..the opposite is what is true today- abstinence is not taught at all…..maybe you could help me figure out what to do about my husband because he’s really dragging me down and I’m just not ready to be a wife so since I have no legal way to kill him, I’m going to ignore that and do it anyways…..this is all the fault of those people that want to take away my right to kill him!! without them, I wouldn’t have to worry about getting caught <~~see what I did there because that's how you sound to sane people
