In Stalin’s day, these people would have all been given ‘Hero Of The Soviet Union’ awards…

From Newsbusters, Katie Yoder reporting, we learn:

During Planned Parenthood’s Maggie Awards for Media Excellence [BOB: named for Feminist Eugenicist Margaret Sanger] Tuesday night, the abortion giant recognized 16 journalists for pushing “reproductive rights.” From Buzzfeed and Yahoo! to MSNBC, MRC Culture compiled a list of several prominent media attendees – and found a picture announcing the winners.

With no official list released yet, MRC Culture also searched Twitter to compile a list of media present and/or awarded at the event:

Buzzfeed – via Casey Gueren

Cosmopolitan – via Jill Filipovic

Ebony – via Jamilah Lemieux

Elle – via Laurie Abraham and Leah Chernikoff

In Hitler’s day, these people would have written fawning profile articles about Joseph Mengele.

    The “life of the mother” exception to abortion is a argument absolutely devoid of logic because there is no medical condition in which the deliberate killing of the unborn child will save her life. But in every single case, when the pregnancy is actually threatening the life of the mother, the attempt can be made to deliver a live child.
    It may very well be that the child is too small to live outside the womb, but if the pregnancy is deadly to the mother, the unborn child will die too. Ipso fact, the delivery is attempted. It is never mother OR child, but in truth, either mother and child both perish, or the child is delivered early to end the pregnancy that would kill them both.
