Who Are The Terrorists Again?

Planned Parenthood of North Texas said someone threw an ignited container of diesel fuel that smashed the outer glass of the front door and started a small fire around the door and on the sidewalk. The container was not thrown inside the clinic which is located in a small strip mall shopping center.

And for the record they don’t perform abortions, only women’s health and reproductive services.

The Congressional Record Is Apparently Written With Invisible Ink

Not long ago Arizona Republican Senator Jon Kyl stood before the Senate and blatantly lied when the Senate was debating cutting funding for Planned Parenthood in this year’s budget. Kyl is on video saying that abortions comprised 90% of their services and used that stat to justify his belief that the funding for that organization should be cut.

Of course it didn’t take long for Kyl to be called on that outright falsehood, they actually comprise 3% of what PP does, and he initially tried to explain it away by saying that the statement wasn’t meant to be factual, more BS. Since that obviously didn’t work, he has decided to take a different route.

He just rewrote the Congressional record.

On April 8, Kyl said that, “If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that’s well over 90 percent of what Planned Parenthood does.” Following the change, the Congressional Record now reads, “If you want an abortion you go to Planned Parenthood and that is what Planned Parenthood does.”

GOP Wants To Use The IRS To Fight Abortion

While our Governor decides on whether or not to sign South Dakota’s latest bill aimed at making abortion all but impossible here, the GOP in Washington have put forward their latest attempt to combat choice. They want to sic the IRS on women getting the procedure.

Under a GOP-backed bill expected to sail through the House of Representatives, the Internal Revenue Service would be forced to police how Americans have paid for their abortions. To ensure that taxpayers complied with the law, IRS agents would have to investigate whether certain terminated pregnancies were the result of rape or incest. And one tax expert says that the measure could even lead to questions on tax forms: Have you had an abortion? Did you keep your receipt?

In testimony to a House taxation subcommittee on Wednesday, Thomas Barthold, the chief of staff of the nonpartisan Joint Tax Committee, confirmed that one consequence of the Republicans’ “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” would be to turn IRS agents into abortion cops—that is, during an audit, they’d have to detemine, from evidence provided by the taxpayer, whether any tax benefit had been inappropriately used to pay for an abortion.

Nebraska Resurrects And Enhances Bill That Would Make Killing Abortion Providers Justifiable

South Dakota’s legislature shelved their version of justifying the murder of abortion providers last week but apparently our neighbors to the south, Nebraska, decided to bring it back. And their bill allows for anyone to claim justifiable homicide when killing abortion providers.

Last week, South Dakota’s legislature shelved a bill, introduced by Republican state Rep. Phil Jensen, which would have allowed the use of the “justifiable homicide” defense for killings intended to prevent harm to a fetus. Now a nearly identical bill is being considered in neighboring Nebraska, where on Wednesday the state legislature held a hearing on the measure.

The legislation, LB 232, was introduced by state Sen. Mark Christensen, a devout Christian and die-hard abortion foe who is opposed to the prodedure even in the case of rape. Unlike its South Dakota counterpart, which would have allowed only a pregnant woman, her husband, her parents, or her children to commit “justifiable homicide” in defense of her fetus, the Nebraska bill would apply to any third party.

HB1171: Giving Purpose To Our Concealed Carry Laws

Only in South Dakota

A law under consideration in South Dakota would expand the definition of “justifiable homicide” to include killings that are intended to prevent harm to a fetus—a move that could make it legal to kill doctors who perform abortions. The Republican-backed legislation, House Bill 1171, has passed out of committee on a nine-to-three party-line vote, and is expected to face a floor vote in the state’s GOP-dominated House of Representatives soon.

The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Phil Jensen, a committed foe of abortion rights, alters the state’s legal definition of justifiable homicide by adding language stating that a homicide is permissible if committed by a person “while resisting an attempt to harm” that person’s unborn child or the unborn child of that person’s spouse, partner, parent, or child. If the bill passes, it could in theory allow a woman’s father, mother, son, daughter, or husband to kill anyone who tried to provide that woman an abortion—even if she wanted one.

At least our state GOP is good at something (it sure isn’t passing a budget). With their attempt to use astrology to explain global warming last year to this year’s attempt to legalize murder, we are becoming the laughing stock of the country. Move over Texas, here we come!
