Just in time for Easter: Rob McKenna Asks the Perennial Question

Would it not be expedient that babies be killed so that I may become governor and the whole state shall not perish?

Right after he blames exalts and excites the mob voters, he kisses the innocent babe says life begins at conception, and finally washes his hands of the whole mess by blaming the mob women.

See and hear it here. If you can stand it.

A Catholic American public official circa 2012 AD: Caiaphas, Judas, and Pilate and rolled into one. Nice.

Sad Anniversary: Two years since Ballard HS teen abortion scandal

This is the week the Ballard High School teen abortion scandal broke.
Here's a round-up of the stories from that date.

Here's our coverage of the scandal and stories related to teen clinics, Hopelink/Medicaid Transports to abortion appointments, Planned Parenthood in the schools.

These teen clinics serve as surrogates for Planned Parenthood in the schools. Slowly and steadily they've been able to worm their way in -- from the pre-schools to the high schools.

And no one's done anything to stop it.

Democrat Governor Who Forced Morning-After Pill on State Goes to Jail Today

As that part of the country that still registers a moral pulse continues to protest Barack Obama's war on women (and men, and children, and the unborn, and the Constitution...) in the context of the "HHS Mandate" to force all private sector employers to subsidize all forms of contraception, including those that are clearly abortifacient, like the morning after pill and IUDs, one of Obama's fanboys, former colleague, and trailblazer is going to jail today.

And as the state of Washington continues to celebrate the victory in the Stormans case, in which morally decent pharmacies re-secured their God-given right not to have Christine Gregoire force them to take part in murder via dispensing Plan B, it's particularly poignant to note that one of the first governors to do what Gregoire has done is putting on a prison uniform today.

Former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich may be going to prison for trying to pawn off Barack Obama's former Senate seat for personal gain, but as Gregoire huddles with Rob McKenna to consider appealing the verdict (!) it's worth remembering that "in 2005, [Blago] announced the emergency rule at a press conference, flanked by the heads of NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and other abortion leaders."

We can't tell you that Governor Christine Gregoire, who similarly colluded with NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and other abortion leaders while crafting this state's fascist "Plan B" rule, will be found guilty of crimes that carry prison terms, but it's certainly worth remembering that people drunk on power and with fascistic tendencies who couldn't care less about killing children, or violating the consciences of others are probably devoid of a conscience themselves. And people without a conscience tend to break the law. And some of them get caught. And some of them, even Democrat governors in Democrat states, go to jail.

If that happens, it's Gregoire who will need a "Plan B".

Botched Everett Abortion Follow-Up Shows Desperate Need to Fix Public Records Loophole that Protects Abortionists

Our readers will remember the chilling 911 audio tape from last year in which the unidentified Everett Planned Parenthood worker made an emergency call to get a 16-year-old patient who had just had an abortion to the hospital because they almost killed her. She was bleeding uncontrollably.

We investigated aggressively to try to find out as much information as we could in order to protect more women from these butchers. We contacted Planned Parenthood and Everett Providence (where she was taken) to find out if this girl went through experience on her own, whether PP almost killed her without her parents ever knowing anything about it. They all refused to answer, even though we had and sought NO personally identifying information. They claimed the girl was in stable condition but refused to provide any evidence that would allow independent verification of that claim.

We also asked PP and the Department of Health for information that would identify the abortionist responsible not just for the murder of this 16 year old's baby (or babies, she could have been carrying twins), and for nearly killing the girl so that future PP clients could know whether they are being operated on by someone with such a record.

Was it Cameron McIntyre, PPWW's long-time medical director? He was once associated with that address. Search engines list two MDs at that address; one is C.D. Steele, but we contacted her and she has been working in another state for a few years. Maybe there is no doctor working there and it's just nurses doing all the abortions? The only other medical personnel associated with that address are Shannon R Zeh, MD, Gayle M Hayden, ARNP, and Theresa E Ranta, ARNP. In Washington, Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners are allowed to procure chemical abortions without any doctor present.

A quick search of Washington's licensed health care providers database shows no-one by the name Shannon Zeh, doctor or otherwise. Is this a false identity designed to cover up a record of malpractice? There's simply no way to find out in Washington State.

In the State of Washington, everything is set up to protect Planned Parenthood profits, not women, despite the propaganda from PP that is dutifully regurgitated by the Seattle press.

We finally resorted to getting the abortion complications report for that facility; the report is one of the few pieces of paperwork an abortion clinic is required to file with the state. We got two reports: the report of all abortions done that day, and the complications report.

The former revealed in faceless data the horrific story of death and despair that is one day in the life of Planned Parenthood Everett's abortion production line. There were at least 7 babies murdered that day by the unidentified abortionist(s). Most were there for their first abortion. Shockingly, one woman who was just 25 was actually there for her 8th abortion!!! Clearly abortion was being used as birth control and Planned Parenthood's staff are more than happy to oblige, regardless what they say in public.

Three of the aborting mothers were mothers of live children. Two were 16-year-old girls. The others ranged in age from 20 to 31. Most were local women, from the Everett and Marysville area. One was from Clinton, another from Granite Falls. Most were white. One woman was Asian.

The ages of the babies killed that day, per Planned Parenthood's estimate, ranged from 5 weeks to 11 weeks.

Six had surgical abortions. Just one woman (girl) had a chemical abortion, the one whose baby was 5 weeks.

The 16-year-old who nearly died was the only reported complication that day. The complication report just indicates that she experienced a hemorrhage and was hospitalized.

No further information is available to the public or future would-be clients of Planned Parenthood. There is even state law which prevents the government from releasing information that would identify abortion clinics and abortionists, even in the complications report. You see, everything in this state is carefully designed to protect the abortion industry and maximize their profits. There are no laws that would protect women.

It's time for this to change. We are calling on Olympia to fix this legal travesty and end the war on women. Stop protecting abortionists.

Butcher of Philadelphia, Kermitt Gosnell, May Not Have Committed Any Crimes if "House of Horrors" Abortion Mill was in Washington

And Legislators of Both Parties Plan No Changes to Laws!

About a year ago the nation was finally in collective shock over the actions of an abortionist. Kermit Gosnell, of Philadelphia, was arrested after police revealed that he had been running a late-term abortion mill that came to be known as a "house of horrors". But while everyone watched Gosnell get charged with violations of various criminal counts in Pennsylvania, we started an investigation to see if this horrific genocidal butcher of a man would have actually committed any crimes had his abortion mill be operating here in The Abortion State of Washington.

We can now report the results of that investigation.

The shocking answer is pretty much "no"!

Now we know no-one likes reading the details of what Gosnell was doing, but it's crucially important. Here is the summary straight from the Philly District Attorney:
Gosnell is accused of causing the death of one of his female patients; and killing viable babies, born alive in the 6th, 7th, and 8th month of pregnancy, by severing their spinal cords with a pair of scissors. 
A search of Gosnell’s office, called the Women’s Medical Society,  in West Philadelphia revealed that bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building.  Jars containing the severed feet of babies lined a shelf.  Furniture and equipment was dusty, broken, and blood-stained.  The doctor himself was seldom present.  In his absence, untrained, unsupervised workers, one of them a teenage girl, routinely injected dangerous sedatives into women undergoing illegal late-term abortions. 
 Law enforcement officers happened upon the medical abuses in the course of investigating tips that the doctor had been illegally selling thousands of prescriptions for oxycontin and other narcotics to “patients” that he never examined.
The grand jury investigation revealed that, for over two decades, government health and licensing officials had received repeated reports about Gosnell’s dangerous practices.  No action was ever taken, however, even after the agencies learned that women had died during routine abortions under Gosnell’s care. 
“I am aware that abortion is a hot-button topic,” said District Attorney Williams.  “But as District Attorney, my job is to carry out the law.  A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point that one of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law.  A doctor who cuts into the necks severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies, who would survive with proper medical attention, is committing murder under the law.” 
Gosnell, a family practioner who was never certified as an OB/GYN, operated the clinic for years primarily treating lower income, minority women.  Along with performing abortions beyond the legal 24 weeks time, he is also accused of delivering and then killing healthy, viable babies; using a sliding pay scale to administer anesthesia; re-using unsanitary instruments; performing procedures in filthy rooms-some of the rooms had litter boxes and animals present at the time of the operations; and allowing unlicensed employees to perform operations and administer anesthesia-including a teenaged high school student. 
Gosnell is facing Murder in the 3rdDegree for the death of 41 year old Karnamaya Mongar.  Mrs. Mongar died on November 20, 2009 when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell.  He is also facing seven Murder charges for the deaths of infants who were killed after being born viable and alive during the 6th, 7th and 8thmonth of pregnancy.  Along with the Murder charges the District Attorney has charged Gosnell with Infanticide, Conspiracy,  Abortion at 24 or more weeks, Abuse of Corpse, Theft, Corruption of Minors, Solicitation and other related offenses.
Now we know that you want to take it for granted that here in Washington a man who did these same things could and would be charged with violations of similar laws on the books in this state, and that the county prosecutor/DA would actually bring such charges. Well, we consulted with the office of the Attorney General (who, in case you haven't heard, is running for Governor). The only thing Gosnell did as far as we can tell that would have been a prosecutable felony is the accidental death of the 41-year-old patient. Let's look at the other charges in detail.

Illegal abortion after 24 weeks? There's no such law in Washington. The closest you will get is RCW 9.02.110 and 120. It deliberately avoids any mention of weeks and instead leaves the definition of an illegal abortion vague, subjective, and hard to prosecute. (The attorney general and the association of county prosecutors could not give us any examples of charges ever having been brought under this statute.) An abortion at any stage of pregnancy including the 6th, 7th, and 8th months like Gosnell was doing is legal in Washington as long as a single licensed doctor in his or her arbitrary, subjective, biased, self-serving "judgment" says the pregnancy was "not viable" or "a threat to the health" of the mother. There are no requirements for independent second opinions, supporting paperwork, medical tests, documentation. In other words, a "Washington State Gosnell" can make his own abortions legal by fiat.

It could actually be even worse than that. The statute, from an initiative passed by a vote of the people of the Soviet of Washington, says:
"A physician may terminate and a health care provider may assist a physician in terminating a pregnancy." 
We asked the AG's office if this horribly vague language meant that meant that the determination of gestation, viability, or threat to the mother's health could be delegated to a "health care provider". Janelle Guthrie, spokeswoman for Rob McKenna's office, said that "it could be interpreted this way", though she cautioned that this would be stretching the language and a non-standard interpretation. We would note, however, that stretching statutes is what lawyers do for breakfast.

Note also that there is no legal definition of a "health care provider" in the R.C.W. that we could find. Gosnell was delegating things like this to untrained and unlicensed family members, a crime in Pennsylvania. In the case of abortion in Washington, he could just claim these untrained individuals were "providing health care". If that sounds crazy, one must remember that when Christine Gregoire was Attorney General, she provided a formal opinion allowing certain kinds of nurses to do (chemical abortions) based on an extremely liberal reading of the state's existing (and minimal) abortion statues.

Also, note that Gosnell was never trained as an Ob/Gyn. Surely it's illegal for someone in Washington to do abortions unless they are a trained and licensed Ob/Gyn. Wrong again! You can be a podiatrist or a urologist; all you need is to be a (licensed) physician and you can do abortions all day long without violating a jot or tittle of Washington law. Ms. Guthrie did point out that you might expose yourself to some civil damages with malpractice insurance if you 'practice' outside your training, but that's far from a criminal charge, which is our focus.

So what about Gosnell's practice of having babies be born alive and then "snipping" their spinal cords with scissors? Well, while there is a federal law against partial-birth abortion, there is no state law against any kind of abortion technique. And there is no requirement to minimize the suffering of the baby you are murdering. Since Washington State law specifically says that "Any regulation promulgated by the state relating to abortion shall be valid only if ... of the available alternatives, the regulation imposes the least restrictions on the woman's right to have an abortion" it's completely possible that an abortionist who prefers to kill babies in this way would have the law on his or her side.

Next, what about Gosnell's practice of keeping aborted baby remains around his Auschwitz-like office as trophies of private holocaust? We consulted with Ms. Guthrie and her colleagues about this and the applicable law is a little vague. She did tell us that once a baby has been murdered, if it was 20 weeks or more, it is suddenly considered to be human. (How nice for the baby, he's a blob of tissue before he's murdered, then as soon as his life is brutally ended by Planned Parenthood's finest, Washington State suddenly recognizes his humanity!) There are regulations governing how "human remains" are dealt with, but any violations are misdemeanors, or at worst, a gross misdemeanor.

Finally, one might think that the filthy state of Gosnell's facility would have been discovered during routine inspections of abortion facilities in Washington State and caused the facility to have lost its license. No again. Because in Washington, abortion clinics are completely unlicensed, unregulated, and not subjected to any form of inspection ever. The Department of Health told us that monitoring of medical facilities is done on a complaint basis, which they supposedly take very seriously. Well, we saw how seriously the Pennsylvania Department of Health took the routine complaints they received: they ignored them for years. Gosnell was only discovered when he violated narcotic regulations. And Washington's DoH is known for being even more sympathetic and deferential to the abortion industry. They even recently passed new rules letting late-term abortion clinics regulate themselves with respect to administering anesthesia. (Imagine if your two-year-old asked if he could "regulate himself". Gosnell was "regulating himself".)

We have filed a couple of complaints with the DoH regarding abortion clinics employing unlicensed nurses. The result? Crickets...

So what we have discovered is that it is perfectly possible that this state is littered with a network of Kermit Gosnell's running their own houses of horrors with absolute impunity. You would think that on discovering this shameful outrage that Christine Gregoire, Jay Inslee, and our legislators would be running to Olympia to fix the situation immediately. You would think Rob McKenna would be making this a centerpiece of his campaign for Governor. You would hope that the Seattle Times and other media outlets that obsess about "human rights" would be editorializing about it. You would hope that Bill & Melinda Gates would be crying out for their home state to fix this outrage before he goes around the world telling of his compassion.

But the reality is that Seattle Leftists could care less. They seem to love abortion with all their hearts, regardless how it is done, to whom, or under what conditions. The Washington State Democratic Party and all its subsidiaries can fairly be declared monsters and barbarians. And the Republican Party is devoid of any moral conviction and can't even figure out how to take advantage of this situation as the political opportunity of the century.

As we say in Washington, Welcome to Hell.

The Ultimate Liberal Fantasy

Threatening to bomb a small, weak and defenseless African nation over "sex" comes easy to these people.

This, this, and this are going come easy to people who would kill to make their point.
