That is the same response that Dems have held for decades.
I have held off writing about the big story on the new abortion law that was signed by that mentally deranged group in Texas to see what the response of the Dems would be…..and now I have my answer.
First let me say…..the media and Dems need to stop using the term ‘pro-life’….that is a lie….instead they need to start using the term ‘anti-choice’.
Now to the grits and gravy.
The Dems are doing what they do best…..react.
So you think the Dems are doing what they can to prevent this law from effecting women?
Since 1980 when Reagan slithered into the White House the Dems have had NO idea how to go on the attack….instead they wait for the Repubs to attack and then they react….and that is why they have little answers to this new assault on reproductive rights.
The Dems counterattacked with the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021….all but the cowards like Casey and Manchin who are the bane of getting anything done in the Congress for they are ‘moderates’….that means they are more worried about votes than the health of women….like I said before ‘spineless’.
Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) of 2021……
Would you like to see what is in this bill? (Stupid question for most will ignorge this as they always do then bitch when they are caught flat-footed)
Read the damn bill!
A valiant effort…..but it will flop as it did in 2013….and again in 2019…..
Yes that is right…this bill has been proposed several times…..and yet nothing has been accomplished either time….
Doubt my word?
How about in 2019…..
- H.R. 2975 would impose a heightened burden of proof on many if not most if not all abortion laws ever enacted 2
- H.R. 2975 treats abortion like one more “medical procedure”—not like the “unique act” and “grave decision” it really is 4
- H.R. 2975 excludes important legislative interests that the Supreme Court has expressly recognized 5
- Under H.R. 2975 doctors and nurses who conscientiously object to abortion could lose their jobs and Catholic hospitals could lose public funds. 7
- H.R. 2975 would jeopardize limits on taxpayer-funded abortion—including the Hyde Amendment 9
- H.R. 2975 would jeopardize parental notice requirements. 11
- H.R. 2975 would jeopardize informed consent laws such as ultrasound requirements and reflection periods 13
- H.R. 2975 would block States from protecting pain-capable babies at 20 weeks of pregnancy in most cases 15
- H.R. 2975 would force States to allow discrimination. 16
- H.R. 2975 would make it harder to limit late abortions 17
Want the whole bill?
If you a truly pro-choice then spend a little damn time and learn this stuff…..
This Dem attempt is but a fart in the wind!
Personally I think this effort by the Dems will fall away as it has for many years…..they will defer to the Supreme Court and now that it is stacked with ideologues I fear that these bans may hold.
At what point will the Dems learn to attack first and let the Repubs scramble for an answer?
That point is to elect true progressives and not mealy mouth moderates that hamper any progress on this issue and others.
Until then you just have to live with the gutless attempts put forward by the Dems.
As of writing this post the announcement came out that the AG will proceed with a lawsuit…..
The Justice Department is suing Texas over its new state law prohibiting most abortions, arguing that it was enacted “in open defiance of the Constitution.” The lawsuit, filed Thursday in federal court in Texas, asks a federal judge to declare that the law is invalid, “to enjoin its enforcement, and to protect the rights that Texas has violated,” the AP reports. The Texas law prohibits abortions once medical professionals can detect cardiac activity—usually around six weeks, often before a woman knows she’s pregnant. Courts have blocked other states from imposing similar restrictions, but Texas’ law differs significantly because it leaves enforcement to private citizens through civil lawsuits instead of criminal prosecutors.
I await the SCOTUS response when it makes it that far.

I’m pro-choice. I know people on both sides of the debate. In fact, my mom had an abortion a year after I was born. Thankfully, we were living in the San Francisco Bay area when it happened. I hope this crazy law goes down with a thud. But, I am a realist, and I know it probably isn’t going to happen. Especially with all the judges that McConnell was able to push through the Senate. Do I have hope? Yes, but not a lot.
I am with you on this ….I am not optimistic that there is any hope right now. chuq
mentally deranged? HaHaHaHa that’s truly funnnnny.
Nothing funny about some overweight douche bag telling women what they can with their bodies. chuq
Obviously. Duh. When have no obligation what so ever to have children. But hedonism has its abortion consequences.
ooopse not “When” but rather Women!!!
Abortion is a decision for one person….chuq
Correct. But that decision that woman has to live with for the rest of her life. The horrible leadership decisions made by Reshonim and Auchronim rabbis resulted in the “abortion” known as the Shoah\Holocaust.
That is what you get for letting religious zealots define the procedure. chuq
Its hard for a person of the 21st Century to understand and appreciate people who lived in the 1st Century.
Whether a woman has an abortion or not – it’s always a decision she has to live with the rest of her life.
True that and it is her decision no one else should have a say chuq
Actions have consequences. Unlike you Americans who became a nation – just a tad more than 200 years ago, we Yidden, as a people (sometimes as a nation) have had to live with the consequences of bad decisions made by our rabbinic leadership. This last shabbot, the shabbot prior to Yom Kippur, also known as shabbot t’shuva. This post shabbot t’shuva address post, it addresses the issue of responsibility for the Shoah – the systematic murder of 75% of European Jewry in less than 4 years. Naturally, the Shoah\Holocaust has “shaped” the Jewish perspective upon life as abortion “shapes” the identity of women who murder their own children. It employs a few Yiddish and Hebrew terms. 1. Narishkeit – complete and utter stupidity. 2. Masoret – traditions. 3. Sha’s: the Talmud. 4. Siddur: the Prayerbook. 5. פרדס a shortened abbreviation for the Oral Torah logic system, first revealed to Moshe following the sin of the golden calf, wherein Yidden approached Aaron and declared on Yom Kippur\the Day of Atonement — Moshe’s dead, who will teach us the rest of the Torah. (After the revelation of the opening first two commandments at Sinai, all Israel thought that they would surely die if they heard even one more commandment straight from G-d. They therefore demanded from Moshe that he ascend Mount Sinai and receive the rest of the Torah. After 40 days the nation assumed that Moshe had died in the attempt.) 6. Kabbala: the concealed traditions consisting of 2 opposing threads, like warp weft threads in a loom. These two contrasting kabbalic traditions known as פרדס and מעשה בראשית – which translates as “the act of Creation”. 7. Kre’a shma: a defining prayer in the Siddur which begins with the opening thesis statement: Here Israel HaShem our Judge HaShem is ONE. Countless generations have erroneously interpreted the meaning that opening verse of kre’a shma, that it commands a belief in monotheism. A gigantic error and plagues the Jewish people to this very day. 8. K’vanna: this Hebrew transliterated word has no accurate translation. It roughly translates as “set the direction wherein a person directs his path walk before HaShem”. Something like aligning the 2 sights of a rifle to hit a target at long distances. 9. Horev: another name for Mt. Sinai. Moshe heard the revelation of the Oral Torah logic system by which to interpret the Written Torah. Israel heard the first to commandments at Sinai. The name Sinai therefore refers to the Written Torah revelation, whereas the name Horev refers to the Oral Torah revelation. 10. Shemone Esrei: the 18 blessings of Jewish prayer in the Siddur. 11. Bnai brit: people of the Torah oath alliance. 12. T’shuva: the dedication of the Yatzir Ha’Rah\evil inclination and the Yatzir Ha’Tov\the good inclination unto HaShem. 13. Tefilla: prayer. 14. דאורייתא: Torah commandments. 15. דרבנן: Rabbinic commandments, also known as making a ‘fence around the Torah’. 16. Machzor: the Jewish prayer book wherein Jews pray on the High Holy Days of Rosh HaShanna and Yom Kippur. This prayer book edited and formalized during the Middle Ages of Jewish g’lut\exile as a nation. 17. יסוד: foundation. This word closely compares to סוד, which means hidden secret, the basis of all Jewish kabbala. 18. Postitive time oriented commandment: a commandment completely different from Positive and Negative commandments in the Written Torah revelation. 19. ודוי: translated as confession of guilt. 20. Reshonim: a period of post Talmudic scholarship, roughly in the years 950 CE till about 1450 CE. (CE: Common Era). 21. סלח לנו אבינו: Pardon us our Father. 22. ברכה: blessing. 23. יומא: a Tractate which addresses Yom Kippur in the Babylonian Talmud. 24. אנשי נח: people within the Books of the T’NaCH Prophets and Holy Writings. 25. Rif and Rosh: 2 extremely influential Reshon scholars during the Middle Ages. The Rif lived prior to the 1st Crusades. The Rosh witnessed the burning of all Babylonian Talmudic manuscripts in Paris France in 1242. This destruction of Jewish communities across Europe came as the consequence to the Rambam Civil War. Britain expelled all Jews in 1290, in 1306 France would do the same. Germany imposed taxation without representation and bankrupted all Jews living in the kingdoms therein. Having robbed the Jewish refugee populations of all wealth, the German kings and princes would imprison all Jews into Ghetto prison for over 300 years. Napoleon early in the 19th century freed impoverished Jews from our Ghetto imprisonment, which sealed poverty and starvation of Jews across all of Western Europe and caused a huge population transfer of millions of Jewish refugee populations who fled unto Easter European countries, specifically Poland and Russia hoping for a better life. 26. Korbanot: sacrifices 27. Avoda zara: idolatry. 28. 10 Sefiroth, the classic tree of Medieval Jewish mysticism. 29. Tzimtzum: the mystic post Zohar mysticism. Jewish gnostic speculations which theorized that HaShem so to speak contracted Himself and thereby created a huge void expanse. The Universe, according to this gnostic belief, HaShem created within that void vacuum. This gnosticism the Ari attempted to reveal the hidden kabbala of מעשה בראשית. His mysticism completely negated and up-rooted the Talmudic tradition of מעשה בראשית which taught blessing vs cursing, life vs. death as the meaning of the kabbala of מעשה בראשית. The next # 30. Mussar: the T’NaCH definition for prophesy. The classic translation for this complex term: education which rebukes both the Yatzir Ha’Tov and also the Yatzir Ha’Rah. 31. Da’aven: to pray. 32. Auchronim: period of Jewish scholarship from about 1450 CE to the present day.
Wow lobotero i now fully realize why when i posted something on your blog why you got so angry. I am sorry please accept my apology.
Holding Reshonim Rabbis Accountable for their errors and mistakes. A Shabbos T’shuva address. טוב.
During my Yeshiva education, the standard rule Universally upheld by Rabbinic authorities straight across the board: They forbade any criticism of Reshonim scholarship. The excuse given, that the later generations do not sit on the same madraga\level as that of the Reshonim scholars. This narishkeit excuse flies in the face of the decision, made by the sages, to seal the T’NaCH, Mishna and Talmud. These sealed Primary sources (no later generation can add or subtract to their “sealed” contents) all generations equally possess. No one generation has a lock monopoly over the logic required to interpret the meaning of this body of literature commonly referred to as “Traditions”.
The Reshonim scholars, their scholarship, post the Rambam Civil War, Universally abandoned both of the primary masoret, which most essentially organizes the Order of the Sha’s, and the Order of the Siddur. The Order of the Sha’s Bavli and Yerushalmi stands upon the פרדס kabbala – Rabbi Akiva’s explanation of the logic of the Oral Torah revealed to Moshe on Yom Kippur at Horev; the Order of the Siddur stands upon the opposing מעשה בראשית kabbala. These two sets of concealed traditions within the Talmud express themselves through the opposing Halacha vs. Aggadita discussions which sums up the entire Talmud as the collective codification of Judean law which existed prior to the Roman destruction of that Jewish civilization.
The kre’a shma of the evening, it sets the k’vanna of the Shemone Esrei da’avening adjacent to that kre’a shma. The kre’a shma of the morning sets the k’vanna of the Shemone Esrei da’avening adjacent to that kre’a shma. Tefilla constitutes as a mitzva known as: the duty of the heart. What defines the duty of the heart following the sin of the Golden Calf? The Torah revelation of T’shuva. Torah curses rain upon the bnai brit people, like as did the plagues upon Par’o and Egypt, when Israel pursues after the desires and feelings expressed by the Yatzir Ha’Rah. Blessing brings prosperity, security, and shalom to the bnai brit nation ruling the oath sworn lands with justice, when Israel pursues to dedicate tohor middot דאורייתא ודרבנן unto HaShem in tefilla.
The t’shuva made by the Yatrir Ha’Rah does not resemble, nor does it compare to the t’shuva made by the Yatrir HaTov. The Machzor of Yom Kippor da’avening fails miserably on this score. Repeating Ad nauseam a long list of confessions for sins, this confession concludes each and everyone of the 5 tefillot da’avened on Yom Kippur, declarations of these long confessions do not compare – much less replace, the central k’vanna of tefilla – the dedication of t’shuva. The central k’vanna of tefilla has nothing whatsoever to do with making confessions before HaShem. Rather the central k’vanna of tefilla stands upon the יסוד of t’shuva; specifically making a clear distinction between the k’vanna of the t’shuva dedication made by the opposing Yatzirot within each and every heart of bnai brit Israel.
The heart houses both opposing Yatzirot. Tefilla, as a mitzva – it exists only as a duty of the heart. What duty obligation does the heart do at the time of tefilla? A specific tefilla dedicates the t’shuva of a specific Yatzir within the heart. Herein defines doing this positive time oriented commandment with k’vanna. Reshonim scholarship upon the Siddur: ie the Machzor confused and grossly erred on this crucial point. Making a confession of guilt does not equal, nor does it compare to dedication of the Will to due t’shuva before HaShem. The kabbala of מעשה בראשית stands upon the יסוד of t’shuva. The basis of מעשה בראשית stands a סוד upon a יסוד; the kabbala of מעשה בראשית, this סוד stands upon the יסוד of t’shuva.
The prophet framers of the Shemone Esrei did not include any rabbinic ודוי into the languages of tefilla. Reshonim scholarship failed to teach in a clear fashion that the language of סלח לנו אבינו, the 3rd Middle Blessing, that this ברכה does not in any wise qualify as a ודוי within the language of the Shemone Esrei. The Gemara of יומא, in the famous dispute between Rabbi Meir and the Sages, Moshe and the אנשי נח set the kabbala which determines the forms which express a rabbinic ודוי. This critical halacha the Rif halachic commentary to the Talmud failed to address. Consequently the Rosh super commentary on the Rif halachic code, it too failed to include this critical halacha.
This crucial mistake caused the framers of the Machzor to confuse ודוי confessions with dedicating t’shuva unto HaShem. Why “crucial mistake”? Yidden lost the wisdom to know that tefilla requires a dedication of t’shuva unto HaShem. Tefilla which lacks this most essential duty of the heart – t’shuva, ceases to exist as the Torah commandment of tefilla. This ‘crucial mistake’ caused generation after generation after generation to fail to do the mitzva of tefilla. In effect, through this crucial error, our own rabbis destroyed the Temple. Based upon the premise that tefilla stands in the stead of korbanot.
Foreigners, the armies of Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the Temple of Shlomo, and the armies of Titus destroyed the Temple of Herod – the destruction of these Temple(s), amounts to small potatoes. The curse of g’lut does not destroy Jewish national Independence by the hand of Goyim. The curse of g’lut destroys Jewish national Independence by the hand of our own People! Justice Justice Pursue, upon this יסוד HaShem judges the brit of Avraham, Yitzak, and Yaacov in all generations. At the brit cut between the pieces, HaShem informed Avraham that his future born seed would betray one another and therefore lose their privilege to rule the oath sworn lands with freedom.
Post the Rambam Civil War, virtually all rabbinic authorities thereafter whitewashed the assimilation avoda zara made by of all the Rabbis of Spain, having the Rambam as their “king”. That Rabbinic authorities could totally ignore the Platonic idea of “emanations”, as expressed in the Zohar’s 10 Sefiroth narishkeit. This error set the stage for the Ari’s gnostic kabbala of Tzimtzum. The sealed masoret – the Ari’s mysticism, it effectively replaced – that sealed tradition – whereby Yidden established their Yiddishkeit, before the Ari’s gnosticism obliterated the kabbala of מעשה בראשית! This gnostic kabbala compares to the “Mormon bible” and its impact upon Xtianity. It set the stage for the false messiah movements which totally disgraced generations of Yiddishkeit and opened the door for the Reform schism – comparable in its own right to Martin Luther nailing his objections of Catholic corruptions upon the doors of the church!
The failure of Jews to understand that tefilla requires k’vanna; the k’vanna of tefilla – means – the discernment between the t’shuva dedicated by the Yatzir Ha’Rah in the evening and the t’shuva dedication by the Yatzir Ha’Tov in the morning. That the t’shuva of the one in no wise compares to the t’shuva of the other. Emotional passions rules the Yatzir HaRah, this t’shuva express grief, regret, and shame for decisions hastily made which brought disgrace as it shadow. The dedication of tohor middot דאורייתא ודרבנן crowns the t’shuva dedication of the Yatzir HaTov! All Talmudic scholarship centers upon using halachot to define the k’vanna of a specific Mishna; and through the wisdom of Addadita/Midrashim affixing prophetic mussar as the k’vanna of both – that specific Mishna – and that specific Mishna affixed as the k’vanna of a blessing within the Middle Blessing of the Shemone Esrei! The dedication to HaShem of Positive Time Oriented Commandments the primary obligation of bnai brit Man! Reshonim scholarship upon the Talmud dismally failed to teach this faith.
Napoleon freed our people from the ghetto prisons across Europe, but our people failed to do t’shuva and da’aven to HaShem with k’vanna. Then came the Shoah. Just as the destruction of both Temples rests firmly and squarely on the failure of the Jewish people to rule the oath sworn lands with justice, because our people failed to do t’shuva; so too and how much more so the guilt of the Shoah, too the result of the Jewish people and our failure to do t’shuva.
Currently the American Biden Administration, condemned by most Americans for the defeat of the Afghanistan war! If Americans can condemn bad leadership, then Jews too can equally condemn the evil, even wicked leadership decisions made by Reshonim and Auchronim rabbis. Who caused the systematic destruction of European Jewry???!!! The shallow reactionary condemns Hitler and the Nazis. But HaShem has a brit with the descendants of Avraham, Yitzak, and Yaacov! Where was God during the Shoah abomination? Answer: The same place as the t’shuva made by the Jewish people.
