I really shouldn’t write when I’m sick. I’m personally frustrated, in pain, and I just sound very angry whenever I write sick. Maybe “Caustic” is a better word. I was writing a guest column for some paper, and when I got done I realized that I had succeeded in making myself sound like a total ass. So of course, I submitted it as is.

There are a few things that I want to bring to the attention of my readers:

Babies sometimes survive abortion procedures!

Paul Clarke, a neonatal intensive care specialist in Norwich, has treated a boy born at 24 weeks after three failed abortion attempts. The mother decided to keep the child, who is now two years old but is suffering what doctors call significant ongoing medical problems.

The survival of this child was not recorded in any official statistics, Clarke said. There is nothing at the moment to force abortion practitioners to account for their failures.

The issue will be highlighted by Gianna Jessen, 28, who survived an attempt to abort her. She is to speak at a parliamentary meeting on December 6 organised by the Alive and Kicking campaign, which is lobbying for a reduction of the abortion limit to 18 weeks.

Jessen, a musician from Nashville, Tennessee, was left with cerebral palsy but is to run in the London marathon next April to raise funds for fellow sufferers.

guidelines say that babies aborted after more than 21 weeks and six days of gestation should have their hearts stopped by an injection of potassium chloride before being delivered. In practice, few doctors are willing or able to perform the delicate procedure.

For the abortion of younger foetuses, labour is induced by drugs in the expectation that the infant will not survive the birth process. Guidelines say that doctors should ensure that the drugs they use prevent such babies being alive at birth.

In practice, according to Stuart Campbell, former professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at St George’s hospital, London, a number do survive.

They can be born breathing and crying at 19 weeks gestation, he said. I am not anti-abortion, but as far as I am concerned this is sub-standard medicine.

It’s not sub-standard medicine, you’re just a sub-standard executioner.

I’ve been in the pro-life movement for a long time, and I had never heard about such incidences happening. I couldn’t believe this when I saw it. My question, how can anyone support late term abortions after hearing the testimony of someone who has survived such a procedure?

Capitalism works.

…the efficiency of the major Scandinavian economies is a myth. The Swedish and Finnish welfare states have been going through a long period of decline. In the early 1990s they were virtually bankrupt. Between 1990 and 1995 unemployment increased five-fold. The Scandinavian countries have not been able to recover.

Check in on Captain Capitalism for more proof that capitalism works.

  1. Marty, isn’t that insane? That happens more often than is publicized or that you’d think…I was born that way, at 27 weeks, after a failed abortion. Since there’s no way while one is in the midst of labor to test and see if the heart of the fetus is still beating, doctors (executioners) just assume the injection has done its job. I don’t know too much about this subject…don’t really care to, truthfully, but it was good to read about it on your blog.


  2. To me such testimony is crushing. How on earth can you handle abortionists telling you that you should never have been born and that your life was a msitake and that you would have been better off as a plate of goo in an abortion clinic?
