Blowback as Fla. Republicrat trolls for leftist votes

March 4, 2019

As the barbaric practice of infanticide — aborting a viable pre-born human baby up until the moment of birth —-rears its fiendish head in more states, it shouldn’t surprise that the grotesque has now morphed into full-blown lunacy.

Witness this maniacal turn of phrase, repetitively and shamelessly uttered by none other than a Republican — obviously seeking to expand his voter base. Florida House Speaker Jose Oliva has coined a new term to describe a pregnant mother: “Host Body.”

During a televised interview about a pro-life bill in the Florida House of Representatives, Oliva actually referred to pregnant women as “host bodies” five times during the interview.

The overwhelming negative response was swift, causing Oliva to retract his bizarre language with this apology (video):

 “In a recent interview where the very controversial topic of abortion was raised I used the term ‘host’ to describe a pregnant woman. It was an attempt to use terminology found in medical ethics writings with the purpose of keeping the discussion dispassionate. The reaction undoubtedly shows it had the exact opposite effect. I apologize for having caused offense; my aim was the contrary. This is and will continue to be our societies [sic] greatest challenge. I strongly believe both mother and child have rights and the extent and balance of those rights remain in question.”

Reread that last mind-boggling sentence.

Interestingly, the outrage was led by Florida legislative Democrats and the Florida Democrat Party Chairwoman. 

Would they have protested if a Democrat had uttered the same words?  Chances are slim to none.

The single priceless highlight of this contortionist language was Wikipedia’s coverage of Florida Speaker Joe Oliva. It referred to his own mother and wife as “host mother” and “host wife.” Showing a decided lack of spine, the descriptive language has been removed. Oliva’s wife Jeanne has been a “host” three times!

U.S. Senate Bill 311 titled, “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” can be read here. Fox News reports Democrats, including all of the Senate’s 2020 presidential hopefuls, blocked the measure.

Pro-life victory! Life prevails in Arizona

February 23, 2019

Weekend reading guaranteed to make you smarter

This past week saw a resolute victory for life as Democrats in the Arizona Legislature sought to emulate infanticide legislation that was recently heralded by beleaguered Virginia Gov. Ralph  Northam — shockingly a pediatric neurologist, who put leftist politics above life.

Arizonans are fortunate to have Cathi Herrod and the Center for Arizona Policy to get the truth out and assemble opponents to protest the horror of abortion up to the moment birth which HB 2696 — introduced by Democrat state Rep Raquel Teran — would have accomplished by repealing the fetal resuscitation law.  That law required doctors to provide aid to babies born alive during abortions. Teran’s bill prioritized providing dressing rooms for staff and patients, “appropriate” toilet facilities and areas for pre-procedure hand washing. The babies received death sentences.

SRAZ stresses that pre-election endorsements reveal a lot about candidates. That’s certainly the case with Raquel Teran. Scroll through her endorsements page and you’ll see that she was the choice of pro-abortion advocates and unions including the left-wing Arizona Education Association, which must think they are overburdened with too many Arizona students.

Lifesite News covers the facts with this in-depth report, BREAKING: Arizona committee scraps Democrat’s bill lifting infanticide ban.

We urge you to read it and be brought up to speed on the increasingly amoral liberal agenda and the fact that conservative activism brings results.


Mark Kelly, AZ gun hypocrite, announces for US Senate

February 14, 2019

With brazen audacity oozing from every pore, leftist Democrat Mark Kelly has announced his entrance into the U.S. Senate race, mounting a challenge to Arizona incumbent Sen. Martha McSally. The Republican former congresswoman was appointed to the senate after placeholder and former senator, Jon Kyl stepped down. Kyl was appointed to temporarily fill the Senate vacancy following the death of John McCain.

Mark Kelly has ridden the unfortunate shooting of his wife, former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords like a steed, despite some major missteps. Though the two of them have been in the forefront of Second Amendment restrictions for the rest of us via their organization Americans for Responsible Solutions, which opposes concealed carry laws, and has now morphed into the $multi-million Giffords PAC.* Mark Kelly exempts himself from his desire to curtail our constitutionally protected Second Amendment rights. The PAC which claims to be bipartisan overwhelmingly endorses liberal Democrats, including the Virginia trio now negatively dominating the news for everything from infanticide protections, and racism to sexual assault: Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax and Attorney General Mark Herring.

In 2013, Breitbart News exposed Kelly making a private purchase of an AR-15, a.45 caliber semi-automatic pistol and “high capacity” magazines at Diamondback Police Supply, a Tucson gun store. After he was caught in the hypocrisy, he backtracked, saying he was not going to keep the AR-15, which he had not picked up from the store.

Democrats are nothing if not two-faced on the issue of guns. They want to rein in the rights of America’s gun owners, but desire easy access to self-protection for themselves. Our illustrative 2012 postDem gun hypocrites,” is proof positive.

The couple is also close to Barack Obama, another Second Amendment restrictionist…for others, though he exempts himself, as seen here.

Mark Kelly has had his share of captured-on-film woes involving not only “assault” weapons but also assault dogs as seen in this disturbing video. During a Kelly family vacation in the seaside resort community of Laguna Beach, his daughter’s 65-pound American Bulldog (a close relative of the notorious Pit Bull) leaped down upon a baby seal, mercilessly attacking and killing the defenseless animal.

Join the NRA to protect our inherent, constitutionally supported freedoms that Mark Kelly would decimate if elected.

VA Gov. Northam condemnations miss the mark

February 3, 2019

Horror of infanticide takes a back seat to racial insensitivity

We’ve reached a bizarre point in our history when an objectionable medical school yearbook photo in which the subject’s face is obscured, is deemed more offensive than condoning infanticide.

Comparing the vileness of aborting a human baby up until the moment it draws its first independent breath to a 35-year-old photo taken in another time and context and which the subject alternately admitted and then denied it was him, has become the rallying cry for demanding Democrat Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam resign.

Incredibly, Northam, who condones abortions up until birth, is a medical doctor specializing in pediatric neurology. Did we mention, he’s also a Democrat? Somehow that fact was obscured, as CNN in its zeal to besmirch a Republican, misidentified Northam as a member of the GOP.

But the revelation of the clearly offensive photo deemed to be Gov. Northam is what has brought the swiftest condemnation. Showing more spine for holding onto his job than for standing against infanticide, he has so far dug in his heels, refusing to acquiesce to the calls to step down, though the list of Democrat officials demanding his resignation continues to grow.

National Democrats including 2020 presidential wannabes Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Julian Castro and Kamala Harris have called for Northam to resign. They are joined by former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, under whom Northam served as Lieutenant Governor, the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic Governors Association, former Vice President Joe Biden and even Hillary Clinton, who has made a career of lying — have all jumped on the bandwagon. The NAACP and MoveOn, a Soros-sponsored leftist mega-fundraising group have united behind the calls for Northam’s resignation. U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine along with U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott, all Virginia Democrats, joined in the voices raised against Northam.

Despite his resistance, it’s a good bet Northam’s more astute wife, Pam, is already packing in anticipation of vacating the Governor’s Executive Mansion.


Dems OK barbaric infanticide, Republicans vote for life

January 31, 2019

Sanity still exists in the Virginia House of Delegates. On Tuesday Virginia Republicans rejected H.B. 2491, known as the Repeal Act, which would have repealed restrictions on late term abortions — even after a mother went into labor. The admission of the bill’s sponsor, Democrat Delegate Kathy Tran, of the ghoulishness of the procedure was the death knell for the bill allowing for aborting human infants minutes from birth.

A House subcommittee voted 5-3 to table the reprehensible proposed legislation. The vote was along party lines, with all of the Democrats voting for infanticide and all of the Republicans voting for life.

Tran is a Buddhist, born in Vietnam shortly after the end of the war. With the devastating loss of life so prevalent and causing her own family to flee to the United States, it would seem she’d have a special affinity for the sanctity of life — even more so as the mother of four children. But leftist politics obscures rational thought.

Todd Gilbert, Virginia’s Republican House Majority Leader, who has been honored as  Legislator of the Year and Defender of Liberty, questioned Tran about the bill during a hearing Monday. He asked Tran if a woman who has physical signs she is about to give birth could request an abortion if a physician alleged the birth could impair her mental health.

“Where it’s obvious that a woman is about to give birth — she has physical signs that she is about to give birth. Would that still be a point at which she could request an abortion if she was so certified — she’s dilating?” he asked.

“Mr. Chairman, that would be a decision that the doctor, the physician and the woman would make at that point,” Tran replied.

 “I understand that,” Gilbert, a former prosecutor, replied. “I’m asking if your bill allows that.”

With not a moment’s hesitation, Tran replied: “My bill would allow that, yes.”

Last week, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed S2796 into law. The Reproductive Health Act, is a bill permitting abortion through the end of the third trimester. So proud was Cuomo of what he glorified as the “Woman’s Equality Law,” he even made sure the World Trade Center was bathed in celebratory pink lights. What’s not to celebrate about killing your own newborn as he or she takes its first breath?


Roe v. Wade: Science now provides the truth

January 18, 2019

March for Life holds its annual gathering in Washington D.C. today. This year’s theme is, “Unique From Day One.”

This informative commentary,Why Science Strengthens the Pro-Life Argument,” by Andrea Picciotti-Bayer, is definitely worth your time.

Scientific and medical advances have impacted the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision in ways that could not be envisioned in 1973. Ultrasound wondrously shows fetal development, a beating heart and an undeniable, unique, human life —- even allowing parents to know the sex of their preborn child. Familial DNA, telling our generational story, is affixed from conception.

Agents of depriving life to preborn humans are celebrating the legal ability to destroy it. A breakfast event, held at the San Diego Hilton Resort and Spa advertises itself as the “46th Anniversary of Roe v. Wade Breakfast Celebration.” It’s hosted by a group known by the dubious moniker, “Coalition for Reproductive Justice.”  The question of whether it’s just to murder the defenseless within what should be the safest place on earth —- their mother’s womb —- is of no consequence to the celebrants who sell event tables for up to $2500. The San Diego “celebration” is one among many across the country.

Undeniably, life begins at conception. Medical advances now allow successful surgeries to be performed on preborn babies, providing incontrovertible evidence that life begins long before birth and what abortion proponents describe as a ‘clump of cells” is actually a growing baby whose life matters.

Web MD provides this spectacular slide show titled, “Fetal development month by month,” detailing a baby’s growth from conception to birth.


Court rules pregnant moms’ drug use not child abuse

December 29, 2018

The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, in its collective wisdom, reversed the decision of a lower court and has ruled that women who use illegal drugs while pregnant can’t be considered perpetrators of child abuse against their newly born children, under the state’s child protection law.

Why, you might ask?

In the 16-page opinion, issued Friday, in which the mother is anonymously referred to by initials, the court’s majority determined the law’s definition of a child doesn’t include fetuses or unborn children —- opining victims of perpetrators must be children —- “a person under 18 years of age” —- just not too far under that interpretation.

A 1997 statute specifically exempts pregnant women and abortion providers from facing charges in the death of a pre-born baby.

Two justices who dissented waffled, saying what should matter is when the injury manifests itself, and that can be after the child is born.

This case involves a newborn girl who was hospitalized for 19 days last year undergoing treatment for drug addiction that caused severe withdrawal symptoms. Her mother resumed drug use after being released from jail two weeks before the baby was born in January 2017. At the time of birth, she tested positive for opiates, marijuana and benzodiazepines.

The mother’s lawyer, David S. Cohen, called the high court’s decision a victory for public health and the rights of women and children. His client does not have custody of the child. Though not surprising, the Pennsylvania branch of the far left American Civil Liberties Union also holds the opinion that women should not face criminal charges for using illicit drugs while pregnant saying it stigmatizes them and makes them fearful.

In Pennsylvania, pre-born children are not fortunate enough to legally count, although they are able to have life saving, in utero surgery performed on their tiny living bodies.

Five of the seven Justices are Democrats.
