Abortion's end is now possible

Three news stories today gave me hope that abortion will end in America.


The first story was Missouri won't renew Planned Parenthood's license to kill.

Life News reported, "Missouri May Become First Abortion-Free State, Last Abortion Clinic May be Shut Down."

State health officials said the clinic failed to provide required pelvic exams and counseling. It also wanted to interview the seven doctors who kill babies at the abortion mill. Planned Parenthood said it will fix the first two health issues, but that it could only provide interviews for two of its seven doctors because the other five were residents in training, and not employees.

So? Tell them to show up or ship out.

We were told we needed to legalize abortion to make it safe. Planned Parenthood does not seem all that interested in the health of women.

Missouri isn't a small rural state. It has 6,126,452 people and is home to two major cities. Its restrictions on abortions show it isn't small town Americana that wants the carnage to end.

The next story was of a 7-2 decision in the Supreme Court with Ginsburg and Sotomayor dissenting.

The Associated Press reported, "The Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld an Indiana law that requires abortion providers to dispose of aborted fetuses in the same way as human remains, a sign that the conservative court is more open to abortion restrictions.

"But the justices rejected the state’s appeal of a lower court ruling blocking a separate provision that would prevent a woman in Indiana from having an abortion based on gender, race or disability."

In a concurring opinion, Justice Clarence Thomas wrote, "this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics. Although the Court declines to wade into these issues today, we cannot avoid them forever. Having created the constitutional right to an abortion, this Court is duty bound to address its scope."

The court slowly comes to grips with the fact that Roe v. Wade was its worst decision since Plessey v. Ferguson.

They bury aborted babies with the same dignity we give humans because they are humans.

By the way, AP, the plural of fetus is spelled B-A-B-I-E-S.

The final story is Hollywood's attempt to put the muscle on Georgia to change its laws.

Variety reported, "Netflix the Only Hollywood Studio to Speak Out in Attack Against Abortion Rights."

Its story said, "Following Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp’s May 7 signing of a bill that aims to outlaw abortion after the detection of a fetal heartbeat, powerhouse female creators like 'The Handmaid’s Tale' breakout director Reed Morano and the Oscar-nominated writing team behind 'Bridesmaids,' Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, abandoned plans to film in the state. Actor and talk-show host Busy Philipps fronted an ad campaign with the ACLU countering what she said is an attempt by the Trump administration to undermine the nearly 50-year-old precedent set by Roe v. Wade, via multistate anti-abortion bills. Actors like 'Titanic' star Frances Fisher and local women in the film industry picketed on the steps of Atlanta City Hall."

This is bullying.

This is what authoritarians do.

This is also desperation and I wonder how effective the boycott will be.

The TV and film industry are a $9.5 billion industry in Georgia.

The state's overall economy is $602 billion, thus film and TV is only 1.5% of its economy.

However, Georgia has since 2016 been the largest producer of TV shows and films in America. The state means far more to Hollywood than Hollywood means to the state.

Hollywood moved so much of its production to Georgia and other anti-abortion states for sound economic reasons. If filmmakers wish to increase their costs at a time when American movies face their stiffest competition in a century, they are welcome to do so.

But demand for abortion is decreasing, Supreme Court support for abortion is decreasing, and the desperation of abortion supporters is increasing.

All in all, that is welcome news -- unless you want babies killed in the womb.


  1. Abortion was dead when ultrasound became a commonplace tool in OB.

    Once women could see that baby, fetus went the way of Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia.

  2. If/when heart beat laws reach the scotus, abortion will be stopped.

  3. See also “Abortion and Conservatism”

  4. ????? The TV and film industry are a $9.5 billion industry in Georgia.

    The state's overall economy is $605 million, so 98.5% of Georgia's economy is non-film or TV.?????

  5. How is it that Row V Wade is the only 'precedent' that matters to liberals. Anything else they determine to be bad law and try to undermine it in various lower courts.

    1. Because Roe has no constitutional, or medical, underpinnings. There is no right of privacy in the Constitution, just the term trimester has no medical significance.

  6. Hollywood celebrities think they are some anointed branch of government who has veto power over any legislation passed anywhere that they don't like. And they think we care what these air-headed paid professional liars "think," to the extent that their empty vessel skulls hold actual thoughts and not just lines they've rehearsed to be delivered in front of a camera. Celebrities, if you are reading, shut the fu*k up and entertain me like the barely trained monkeys you are.

    1. PS: I am not referring to Jon Voight, James Woods, Dean Cain or any other actor who has shown the capacity for independent thought and tangible intelligence by dissenting from Hollywood orthodoxy. Although I do still want you to entertain me. Which the tweets from Messrs. Woods and Voight (when they're not banned) most certainly do.

    2. Your friendly amendment is accepted.

  7. It's not going to be that easy. Leftists, the press, publishing, and the educational establishment are going to fight for abortion tooth and nail.

    I was reading another blog that mentioned Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451. Librarians championed the book as an argument against censorship.

    The blogger mentioned a passage in which Bradbury assailed a society that promoted abortion and shunted children into anonymous daycare. The blogger asked, "You don't recall that passage?" "You read a censored version."

    Bradbury's publisher insisted on removing the passage from later editions, because of blowback from booksellers, themselves getting blowback from pro-abortion advocates, and he reluctantly removed it.

    Just remember, pro-abortionists won't take court decisions as final, and will seek a political path.

  8. I can't begin to count how many editorials, op-eds and columns I have read over the decades that began with the sentence, "The abortion debate in America is over." It would then go on to cite survey and polling data showing the pro-life position was hopelessly outclassed. The recent spate of pro-life legislative victories shows the importance of staying in the fight, no matter how impossible the odds might seem.

  9. Abortion is murder. If you’re cool with abortion, you’re cool with murder. Simple as that.

  10. Clarence Thomas has rightly identified what will be the undoing of abortion, it's racist,elitist, eugenic foundation.

  11. However you feel about abortion, there is no question that Roe v Wade was a terrible legal decision and lay the groundwork for judges ruling on how they "feel" about an issue rather than ruling on what the Constitution actually says or doesn't say.
