Ga. Senate endorses bizarre anti-black conspiracy plot

Last week, the Georgia Senate gave sanction to a bizarre, destructive and racially condescending conspiracy theory. By a 33-14 vote, it approved a bill that purports to outlaw the attempted genocide of black Americans through abortion.

Under the bill’s language, a health care provider could be convicted of a felony and sentenced to up to 10 years in prison for performing an abortion “with the intent to prevent an unborn child from being born based upon the race, color, or gender of the unborn child or the race or color of either parent of that unborn child.”

The bill is inspired by a claim that abortion providers are engaged in a conspiracy to reduce the number of black children born in this country. As Georgia Right to Life has argued in billboards and other outlets, “black children are an endangered species” that need the protection of law against a campaign to eradicate them.

As proof of that campaign’s existence, Georgia Right to Life cites the fact that more than twice as many black women sought abortions in Georgia in 2008 as did white women, even though the state’s population is just 30 percent black.

They do not mention, however, that black women in Georgia also have a pregnancy rate almost twice as high as white women, according to statistics compiled by the Guttmacher Institute. Nor do they point out that the black birth rate in Georgia is about 60 percent higher than for white women.

Those numbers are hardly surprising. The high rate of out-of-wedlock births among black American teenagers represents a continuing cultural, social and economic challenge. Furthermore, liberals and conservatives alike can agree that abortion is not an acceptable solution to that problem.

The best approach is suggested by the fact that in societies around the world, pregnancy rates fall as levels of education and affluence in a community increase.

Until approval of SB 529, the dumbest legislation to pass the House or Senate this year had been a bill to outlaw forced implantation of microchips in human beings, which also passed the Senate. However, while it may rival the genocide-by-abortion bill in terms of weirdness, the microchip bill was at least largely harmless.

The abortion bill, on the other hand, puts the state Senate on record as endorsing the claim that black Americans are being targeted for elimination by health care providers. That’s absurd and flat-out wrong.

Debate over the measure reflected that absurdity. One Republican senator said it was a good thing that Barack Obama’s white mother didn’t choose to abort her pregnancy to avoid the shame of giving birth to a black baby. Sen. Tommie Williams (R-Lyons) argued that without the bill’s provisions criminalizing “coerced abortions,” we could find ourselves following the path of China, where abortions are mandated by government.

Sen. Vincent Fort, an Atlanta Democrat, detected “a whiff of mendacity if not hypocrisy” in conservative concern for black Georgians. Perhaps the most telling observation came from Sen. Hardie Davis, a black pro-life Democrat from Augusta.

“Some things,” he said, “cannot be legislated.”

(Davis was among nine senators who did not cast a vote on the final measure.)

There was a time in recent memory when the Senate was considered the more sane of the two chambers. Strange legislation usually emanated from the House and was allowed to die untouched in the more sober-minded Senate. That has clearly changed.

This year, versions of both the microchip and genocide-by-abortions bills were introduced in the House as well as Senate, but House leadership was wise enough to allow both measures to fade away unnoticed.

In the Senate, lunacy reigns.

ultimately, it’s the woman’s right to choose. it’s her body. it’s her life that’s most affected.

I’m as against forcing men to pay child support as I am forcing women to carry a pregnancy to term. if the man involved says that he wants the woman to have an abortion and she doesn’t want one, he should be forced to sign some kind of legal document relinquishing all paternal rights to the kid.

Southern Comfort, The root of the problem is before the “paternal responsibility” comes into play, (or maybe that is part of the reason men are not taking pregnancy prevention seriously. Chicken and the egg, so to speak) Men and boys who just want fun need to man up and accept a condom if they are not ready to support a baby. Get a grip and take that small amount of time. I guess we need to find a way to make that cool and “manly”.

I see it kinda differently as I was the product of a dead-beat DNA donor. If you want the joy with gettin’ some, then you should be ready to pay the price for any after effects. The easiest way for me to avoid having to pay child support before I met and married my wife was either:

1) Don’t go humpin’ on any female that I didn’t want to be tied to for at least 18 years.
2) If I wanted to do it, take precautions of my own undertaking and don’t rely solely on the female.

Personally, I don’t see abortion as a choice when it comes to my child, however, I believe the woman has the ultimate right to choose what to do with her body. I’m not one to let the man off though. I just can’t do it.

It seems the long and chilly winter has taken its toll on climate change sensibilities despite the fact that weather has nothing to do with climate.

The latest figure is a clear drop from the 62 percent of Germans who said they were scared of such changes just in autumn 2006.

The new survey, carried out by polling company Infratest for Der Spiegel magazine, showed a quarter of those questioned thought Germany would profit from climate change rather than be badly affected by it.

You’re way too easy on the DNA donors. I have no empathy for them. They have way more say so than you give them credit for.

Any Braves fans on here? Just read a fantastic article from a PHILLY rag!!!!!!

A Brave new world in NL East

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Bobby Cox is 68 years old. At the end of the season, he’ll retire after 25 years as the Atlanta Braves manager. His legacy is already secure. Fifteen playoff appearances, five pennants, a world championship. In all he has managed 4,346 games in the majors.

Jason Heyward is 20 years old. He has never played a single big-league game but is generally considered baseball’s best prospect and his legend has only grown this spring. Against the Detroit Tigers in an exhibition game, he hit a home run that was estimated to have traveled nearly 500 feet. At Champion Stadium this spring, he hit the ball so routinely into the Braves’ staff parking lot during batting practice that a protective net had to be installed after his shots started regularly denting the cars. One even crashed through the sun roof of assistant general manager Bruce Manno’s vehicle, causing $3,400 in damage.

I didn’t specifically mean President Obama.

And I made a mistake. It is not 280 million. It is 4.3 Billion. Check this out. Basically, your boss has a financial incentive to perpetuate fatherless families.

“The FY 2011 budget requests $4.3 billion for the Child
Support Enforcement program, proposing congressional
action on four legislative proposals.The FY 2011 budget proposes to improve
child support enforcement by authorizing the
Secretary of HHS to take administrative action
on behalf of a state to freeze and seize assets in
accounts in multi-state financial institutions to
satisfy child support obligations. This develops
a uniform federal approach to freezing and
seizing financial accounts that will greatly assist states
in enforcing child support orders across state lines and
will benefit financial institutions by standardizing and
centralizing the freeze and seize.”

It’s the capitalist way. Find a way to create a job and exploit it. None of that enforcement would be necessary if the government actually tried to keep families together instead of breaking them apart. The private prison system has to keep adding people to make money. If fathers aren’t sent to prison, then they (the prisons) don’t turn a profit. That would actually leave fathers in the homes to raise their children which could further reduce prison populations.

Yes Jay, it is bizarre but your progressive forefathers (and Mothers (Jones)) originally intended that abortion be used in exactly this way. It was seen as a way to get rid of the so-called “inferiors” to create the perfect liberal/progressive intelligentsia (and white) society. Seems that Hitler was also fond of the tactic and actually got the idea for using it as a social “cleanser” from early 20th century American progressives.

But have we reached the point where an entire chamber now fits that description?

And fwiw, I agree with that statement by Sen. Fort, about this idiotic legislation illustrating conservative “concern for black Georgians.”

This looks like just another misguided step in the Conservative Master Plan to once again make all abortions dangerous and illegal…

“I can’t remember exactly when, but that sounds par for the course here in the South. Before I left Alabama, the governor had re-instituted chain gangs.”

Such a great song! Chain Gangs that is!

As has every state in the union.

USinUK, you nailed it at 7:52. I’d love to tell you just how MUCH, but of course, that would invite the righties whose briefs are cutting off their circulation to explain how all the country’s problems are somehow my fault, though I’ve never taken a dime of public assistance.

As for the Georgia State Senate: What’s the politically-correct way to say “RETARDO-RAMA” without hurting Sister Sarah’s feelings?

I must say that I am quite conflicted on the entire subject of abortion. Having watched my daughter’s ultrasounds all through I am convinced that children are alive very early on. Is it at the moment of conception? Probably not but certainly within weeks.

That said this is a very tough issue given the way our society has evolved, and I think it is almost impossible to just stop allowing the practice.

But, the thing that really frustrates me about most of these yahoo legislators be they state or national is that they will beat their chest on one side or the other of the issue and play a wonderful game of sound byte politics, but no one seems to think giving our children a proper sex education early on is important.

These kids need to understand the ramifications of their actions, their alternatives and how to be prepared and we don’t do a good job of educating them, especially those in the lower socio economic classes.

Careful there Bear, PP is sacred ground for liberals. It’s their “corner stone” if you will.

This brings to mind the Freakonomics correlations between the drop in crime rates directly corresponding to increases in abortions.

SoCo – “Most of my time now is spent in secondary inspections to see who gets in and who goes back home”

they have shows here called Border Patrol (filmed in Australia, New Zealand and here at Heathrow) – they show you guys going through suitcases and interviewing people trying to get into the country illegally, using fraudulent visas … cool stuff!!) — IMMENSE respect for what you do!!

Oh, this is just another escapade in the anti-abortion/pro-life/love the baby until its born crowd to intimidate women into not getting an abortion if they chose to do so, or trying in vain to make health care providers not provide the procedure less some idiot will claim their intent was to commit genocide.

Genocide? Really? Our legislatures have really lost their minds.

I think there were some conservatives who tried that also. Remember the White Citizens Council which I believed morphed into the Council of Conservative Citizens?

grizzly … “how about planned parenthood setting up there abortion clinics in black neighborhoods!”

while logic may be beyond you … try to comprehend this:

Planned Parenthood primarily serves people who can’t afford regular doctors (read: poorer communities) – what do you expect them to do?? set up their offices in Buckhead???
