Utah bill mandates 72 hour abortion waiting period

Utah is leading the way with the passage of this law.  Any measure that gives an unborn child’s mom the opportunity to consider the lifelong implications of abortion is exactly what legislators should be doing.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert signed legislation Tuesday requiring women to wait 72 hours before receiving an abortion, giving the state the longest waiting period in the country.

“The governor is an adamant supporter of rights for the unborn and felt the bill appropriately allows a woman facing such a decision time to fully weigh her options, as well as the implications of the decision,” said Ally Isom, the governor’s spokeswoman.

To illustrate the point being made by the passage of this law, this startling graphic on abortions by county in the great state of New York, shows an abortion rate of 53.43% in one zip code.  The goal of Planned Parenthood is to make abortion as readily accessible and easily available as is humanly possible.  In New York that goal has been achieved and result is a bloody terror.

More babies are killed via abortion than are born in New York.  This is an unacceptable future to voters in Utah and their legislators have heard the people and passed a bill to ensure that the fate of New York does not become their own.  Allow that to sink in a moment please.  More babies are aborted than born alive.  The assertion that all women are making an informed well thought out choice isn’t borne out by the numbers here is it?  

The media is complicit in their refusal to showcase the true rate of abortion or even mention the detriment to women that it poses.  Nationally, U.S. birth rates are down while the abortion rate remains steady.  Knights of Columbus polling during a national study done by the Marist Institute shows Americans are pro life, and just 11% are solidly in favor of abortion.  This follows a two year trend in favor of the pro life position.

Nationally many states are taking a pro life position.  The state of Texas is facing a funding dilemma due to the state’s stance on abortion providers.  The White House has defunded the state run Women’s Health Program because Texas has refused to use tax dollars to fund abortion providers, Planned Parenthood being the chief recipient of these funds.  Roughly 80% of the program’s participants are already using non abortion healthcare providers for their care.  In an obvious move to seek retaliation for the pro life stance, Texas will lose 29.8 million dollars per year from the Federal Government.  Governor Perry has promised to continue to serve the healthcare needs of the 130,000 women eligible for the program.

Abortion hurts women, leaving many depressed and suicidal.  There are lasting emotional and physical effects experienced by post abortive women.  These effects have been documented, yet there is a deafening media silence on the issue.  How many more states have to join the killing fields of New York to open the eyes of the pro abortion folks?

Open mic catches Obama asking Russian president for space on missile defense

Just what should we make of this statement? That Obama is pretty sure that he’s going to win in November. And that once he does, all hell will break loose as he shreds the constitution through executive fiat. His dreams of $8.00 a gallon gas prices, the destruction of the energy industry, and forcing every American into subsidizing the abortion industry are close to reality.
Pay attention! He never speaks out of turn. He always telegraphs his intentions with pinpoint accuracy. Obama has plans for us, and it’s up to us to stop him in November.

Average price of a gallon of gas – $4.00+

The old routine was to blame Bush.  As that became noticeably predictable, old and annoying: Obama moved to the much used Liberalicious High Avoidance Technique.  This art form involves taking up the appearance of semi regular church attendance with the wife and youngest daughter, while insisting that the media not pay attention to the 13 year old daughter being off in Mexico.  Obama fiddles away.  Meanwhile, Rome is burning.

This photo was snapped last week in St. Louis County.  You know we are in a pickle when gas gets that high in flyover country.  Obama would like to appear concerned about it, but he just can’t muster the needed gravitas.

The average price of a gallon of regular is now $3.87, the highest recorded price in March. The average price is up nearly 4 cents from a week ago, and over 30 cents from a year ago, according to the Department of Energy, as more drivers face gas prices of $4 a gallon or more across the country.

Last week, the average gas price was $3.83 a gallon, the previous record according to data going back to 1990.

These good folks missed two salient facts in their report: gas is already over $4.00 a gallon in Missouri, and this is all Obama’s fault.  Approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline would be an appropriate step in the right direction and would reduce the misery that Americans are experiencing at the pump considerably.
