If you don't want an abortion, Thomas, just don't get one.
I am really shocked a publication of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints would publish what is decidely a most partisan missrepresentation of
fact. It not only stretches the boundries of journalism or editorialism -
probably should be the main piece on some far right extremist blog - but makes
that acusation the female babies are being aborted in this country intentionally
as preference to male babies, without a single supporting fact to back the
statement up. The poor logic riddled with holes should be an
embarrasement to the writers employer. I truly do hope Mit Romney wins the next
election so we can see this degrading in public morality hopefully ebb. The
level of devisive lying about others can not end positively for this country,
where the media aimes to pit neighbor against neighbor, soley for the purpose of
appealing the most base instincts in people.I expect more from a
publication whose parent supposidly preaches against the very language of hate
used by the author. It is truly a scarey thought process that the editors felt
this piece was reflective of the paper, and its owner.
Bluedevil attacks the DNews for publishing this opinion piece, but then fails to
refute a single point the opinion piece makes. There is no refutation because
the opinion piece contains irrefutable fact.The irrefutable fact is
that is that the left-wing has invented this so-called war on women in order to
further its quest of turning this Country into a welfare state. The left is
pandering to a portion of the female population in order to gain votes.The left is promising women salaries equal to men, even when women are working
jobs that require less education or fewer skills. Indeed, the left is creating
an entitlement mentality that leads to everyone demanding equal pay for unequal
work.It is time to reject this nonsensical leftist propaganda. Vote
all left-wing extremists out of office this November.
@UtahBlueDevil:It is great that you pointed out that there are holes in
the logic. So, what are the holes?
The first four paragraphs of this article isn't about women or abortions
but a tirade against Obama.
There is not a shred of evidence presented that female fetuses are aborted more
frequently than boy fetuses. At birth, the US ratio of female to male children
is 1.05, a fact that shows on its face that there is no predisposition to abort
females over males in this country. This is just the typical fearmongering that
Sowell does so frequently.
"There is not a shred of evidence presented that female fetuses are aborted
more frequently than boy fetuses."So that ubiquitous bucket of
water by many birthing beds in China and India really IS there just for washing
hands? Or, . . . "washing hands" of a newborn female child?In many third-world countries, if you get rid of the "dowry" that is
customarily expected to accompany a bride, then the financial liability of
female births should pretty much go away too!
Clearly the op-ed writer didn't spend one minute trying to present the
reasons why Democrats voted against the bill or addressing their concerns about
@EPJSorry, I meant that remark to refer to the US population, as I
thought I made clear by the following sentence, when I specified the US
Skeptical: Not one shred of evidence? Well, except for the story that broke
last week about the undercover sting video exposing Planned Parenthood’s
willingness to abort based on sex (illegal in the state of Arizona in which the
sting occurred). Interestingly, the only network that chose to run
this news-worthy story was Fox.
(cont’d)I hope that all of us are bothering, from time to time, to
monitor the various channels to make certain that we are not the recipients of
one-way-only biased news coverage. On that topic, I dialed up MSNBC
as the Wisconsin recall votes were coming in and observed how Rachel Maddow
insisted that the amount of money spent by the Republicans is what caused the
recall to fail, while never mentioning once what the unions and the DNC spent!
Is she a mascot or a reporter?In addition, when the vote reflected
61% to 38%, Maddow called this an "epic struggle", and stated that
Walker is "holding on". Seriously, we must be living in
two different realities. And Fox detractors can criticize Fox all
they want, but I've never heard a Fox reporter characterize the results of
an election as "disappointing", like Ed Schultz did for this one.
Dissapointing? I believe that the American voters have spoken. Get in line
with how they are choosing to be governed, Ed.
@ Lasvegaspam 1:55 p.m. June 9, 2012C'mon Pam... Fixed noise
has its share of cheerleaders & purveyors of emotional wedge issues. Have
you not watched Tom Sullivan, Sean Hannity or Fox and Friends in the a.m.?I'll agree that Ed & Rachel have (how shall we say?) a slanted
perspective. MSNBC's biggest mistake was axing Olbermann. If nothing else
KO had a sense of humor and wasn't afraid to call a spade a spade
regardless of ideology.If I want TV news; its HLN in the morning.
