They execute babies, don’t they?

Yesterday in Green Bay, Wisconsin, after referring to leaders of the FBI and DOJ as “scum” and “dirty cops”, Donald Trump went on to reiterate the dangerous falsehood that, after women give birth in the United States, they have the option of killing the child. “(Babies are) wrapped in a blanket,” Donald Trump told the fired-up crowd, “(and then) the mother and the doctor decide whether to execute the baby.” This is not only far from true, but it’s an extremely dangerous lie — a lie that may very well cost health care workers their lives.

[If you want to know what really happens when babies die, I’d encourage you to read what Michigan nurse Julia Pulver had to say on the subject earlier today.]

We’ve known since 2016, when Donald Trump repeatedly incited violence on the campaign trail, going so far as to suggest a “second amendment” solution to keep Hillary Clinton from appointing federal judges, that he was a man who didn’t give a damn whether or not his rhetoric got people hurt or killed. And, sadly, the office of president hasn’t changed him any. He’s not only taken to calling members of the press “enemies of the people“, but he’s refused to tone down his irresponsible rhetoric on race, and disavow the white supremacists who praise him. At every turn, he courts those on the fringe, going so far as to say that some are “very fine people“, and feeds the paranoia of his most gullible followers, like so-called “MAGA Bomber” Cesar Sayoc, the man who mailed pipe bombs to journalists and Democratic leaders after becoming radicalized at a Trump rally. [Sayoc has since described Trump rallies, like the one last night in Green Bay, as “a drug”.]

The question that I have is whether or not people will ever hold Donald Trump accountable. Personally, I think it’s unlikely. If it didn’t happen when 50 people were killed in New Zealand by a man who citied Donald Trump as an inspiration, I don’t imagine that he’ll ever be held to account in any serious, meaningful way. But I guess we’ll see what happens when the first health care worker is gunned down by a lunatic ranting about how doctors “execute” babies. And, sadly, I don’t think we’ll have to wait too long.

Oh, and speaking of Trump rallies and rhetoric, check this out this March 22 headline from the Washington Post.

    Over 61 million abortions in the US since Roe v Wade. And sometimes when a baby is born during a botched abortion, and sometimes when an infant is born with birth defects, the newborn is set aside on a counter, without being wrapped in a blanket, until they die. Yes. There are healthcare workers who are eyewitnesses.

    Sure, ignore 61 million deaths to focus on 2 incidents where a person wrongly took the life of an abortionist. SMH

    “sometimes when an infant is born with birth defects, the newborn is set aside on a counter, without being wrapped in a blanket, until they die.” Sometimes a baby who is not going to live no matter what is allowed to die peacefully, yes. In zero cases ever is a baby who could survive allowed to die on a table. That’s against the law.

    Infanticide is illegal. SB 311 was a political bill meant to intimidate medical professionals from performing late-term abortions. Late term abortions are only performed when the mother’s health is at risk for carrying the fetus to viability or if the fetus, if carried to term would live a life of only pain and suffering with no chance for long term survival, reasonable brain and bodily function or any existence without constant pain. Keeping such infants alive entails extremely high costs and parental commitment with zero chance of improvement. FWIW, I volunteered as a young person on a NICU that cared for such babies in a vegetative state. It was a horror. Women who receive such medical care and the medical professionals who aid them should not be subjected to legal harassment or criminal penalty if we are a humane country that values the lives and dignity and agency of all people.

    So yes, there are those in hospitals who are around infants who pass: they are the Bereavement Teams & they provide the equivalent of neonatal hospice to families who are living through absolute Hell. Babies and children die, it’s a sad part of life. But no one, absolutely NO ONE ever, in any hospital, nor any mother who has just given birth, is conspiring with a doctor on whether or not to commit infanticide. This is perhaps one of the sickest accusations levied by this deranged dictator yet. Don’t believe a word he says about anything important.
    Keep repeating it to large groups of people b/c it served your underlying agenda, to deny women the right to make their own medical & reproductive health decisions. To fabricate such lies, to use the worst thing in someone’s life as propaganda is utterly monstrous. And sick.

    There will be violence is reliable prophesy in the USA at any time in our history.

    So far, given the level of incitement from our president, I have been pleasantly surprised at how few people have followed his lead into violence. I think that can be chalked up to the considerable multi-pronged resistance so many have engaged in regularly since his presidency.

    One would think that resistance pushes people into opposite corners. And when violent it can for sure. But violence is emboldened by external validation, and so far many I know on the right aren’t up for it and resist similarly to the way we here resist John Brown’s calls to arms. The Trump supporters I know hate being seen as a threat. Being viewed that way by so many on the left may push them to vote for Trump but it won’t ever get them to take up arms in support of him. Only the wingnuts on both sides would go to that extreme.

    These are babies, in the case of the tiny number of fetuses who momentarily survive late-term abortion, who will face a short lifetime of only pain should they be allowed to live. The idea that allowing them to die induces pain is absurd.

    To repeat, infanticide is illegal. Late term abortions are offered to women who either can not carry safely to viability outside the womb or whose fetuses are so damaged already as to be unable to survive without great physical suffering outside the womb.

    Late term abortions are 1.4% of all abortions. The proportion of those that survive the procedure is infinitesimal. The inability of the right to express scientific facts related to this issue, or to acknowledge existing evidence due to their dogmatism, should make every person wary of giving them this kind of decision-making authority over other people’s lives.

    It is the case that abortion rights advocates talking about fetuses sound a lot like animal rights advocates talking about animals. Both project a level of consciousness onto these other beings that does not exist and has been shown not to. Both play to a general neurotic existential fear of death (v imminent fear of death) among human creatures grown into consciousness of which other creatures are blissfully free.

    Kermit Gosnell ran an abortion clinic in Philadelphia for 30 years, where he routinely delivered babies alive and then cut their necks with scissors. The court records show that one of the babies he killed was “so big it could walk” was what several persons testified that Gosnell had said at the time. Pennsylvania law prohibited abortion after 23 weeks. That was the law that enabled him to be convicted. Kept babies feet in jars as trophies. When they raided his clinic, two garbage disposals were clogged with baby parts and the hallways were lined with bags of fetuses. Check out the movie or the grand jury testimonies. It happens every day and no one wants these clinics to be inspected or reported because that might infringe on a woman’s ability to kill her offspring.

    If these babies aborted at term were animals, laws would require anesthesia before inflicting pain.

    From Think Progress:

    This is all part of a bigger debate about abortions later in pregnancy. It’s not just in Wisconsin, either. A bill to protect so-called “abortion survivors” made it all the way to the Senate in February, thanks to the help of Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

    In reality, the majority of abortions take place before 12 weeks, and later abortions are relatively rare — with only 1.4% of abortions taking place at 21 weeks or later. As ThinkProgress previously reported, it’s hard to definitively say why most women and gender minorities who get later abortions do so, but some reasons include fetal abnormalities, increasing restrictions that prevent patients from getting an abortion earlier, and serious medical risks to the pregnant person.

    “Besides their potential to inspire violence, Trump’s words are a cruel insult to parents who have to make agonizing decisions about end-of-life care for babies that are born extremely prematurely, or with serious anomalies. Doctors and mothers don’t choose to “execute” newborns. They are forced to decide, in excruciating situations, when to forgo medical interventions and provide palliative care instead. There are exceedingly rare cases where babies survive an attempted abortion, but federal law already extends the same protection to them due any other infant.”

    The vast majority of Americans do not want babies killed at the time of delivery, when the only medical emergency is the mental distress of the mother. The vast majority don’t want fetuses killed past the point where they are viable outside the womb. The vast majority want restrictions in the third trimester.

    When the baby is being born, you shouldn’t be able to stick a pair of scissors in the back of the neck to kill the infant seconds before they emerge from the womb. At full term, you shouldn’t be able to call the baby a clump of cells and destroy him/her in the womb.

    Can you imagine the outrage if a vet chose to euthanize a dog in the manner that abortionists choose to destroy human life?

    You willfully choose not to acknowledge the humanity of the innocent child. Just like soldiers in a war need to see the enemy as subhuman so that they can pull the trigger. Just like the Nazi’s treated the Jewish people that they led into the gas chambers. Just like 90% of the parents who find out that their child has Down’s Syndrome and decide that they prefer to throw back their less than perfect child and roll the dice that their next child will have the preferred assortment of traits. The soldier, the Nazi, and the selfish parent all try to convince themselves that they were sparing their victim a life of suffering.

    The ethicists in ivory towers do not believe in subjecting young children to a life of pain and agony, no. They believe parents in consultation with medical care professionals can best make these choices. If parents make decisions that are questioned by medical professionals, like parents withholding necessary treatments due to religious belief, there are legal avenues of recourse to protect the children. Such legal cases get a lot of media attention as I’m sure you know. It’s usually the religious crazies who torture their children, not the rest of us.

    Let’s be clear, that term came into use on the alt right during gamer gate and was used to attack anyone standing up for any cause other than white male privilege. To repeat it to mean righteous generally is fucked up. To repeat it on the left is stupid. They fed that word out into the world to suppress any and all voices advocating for social justice. To give the very term ‘social justice’ the stench of oppression not freedom.

    I don’t know why anyone using the moniker John Brown would repeat that term. We should be smarter by now about the ways the right hijacks and distorts language used in progressive movements.

    Sorry Jean. You are wrong on the SJW Jesus. I have a good friend who’s an Evangelical, weird right? And he totally embraces the SJW label and feels it is, un-ironically, an accurate descriptor of his Jesus, versus EOS’ Jesus.

    But glad to give you something to bitch about!

    I dont doubt that some nasty alt right incels had something to do with tainting the term. But FYI there are actual naive holy rollers who completely identify with the SJW Jesus. I know at least two, come to think of it. Mayor Pete evangelicals I suppose. Ones a young Prof and ones a student leader of the recent UM Presidents office sit-ins. And canvassing for the last election I met other youngsters who were like all “hell yeah I’m a SJW, who the hell wouldn’t identify with that?”

    I’ll tell them that they cant have their SJW Jesus because some cranky lady on the internet said its not a thing and they’re supposed to feel stupid for thinking otherwise cause some nazi something something….. But I’m pretty sure they’ll stand by their conviction and not give two shits what some “comment nazi” or actual nazi says about it. I still think they’re delusional, cute, but delusional for believing in god at all, but at least they embrace the opposite vision of Jesus than the trumpvangelicals.

    I wish no one did this ever. But denial doesn’t alter reality.

    I pray for the day all life is respected, from conception until the time of natural death. And today, on the National Day of Prayer, I will pray that God will change the hearts of everyone who thinks abortions are acceptable. I will pray that women who are pregnant and scared will realize they have many choices other than abortion. And I will pray that all women who have been emotionally scarred by past decisions will find peace and forgiveness.

    Aloha EOS, do you pray daily that we stop engaging in endless wars ? There is one Democrat who is opposed to the Trump/Pelosie consensus on war.
