From the Commercial Appeal:
"Claudia Henneberry, a retired social studies teacher from Franklin, read from a long list of examples of what she called bias against white people, particularly southern white men.
“We have a lot of the word ‘white’ used. ‘White people pushed the Indian off their land’,” she read, adding, “The implication here is that the whites were not truly American, that only natives were American.”"
...ummmmm. Let's get to the root of the problem here. How was Ms. Henneberry ever certified to be a social studies teacher if SHE cannot understand history?
Here for that sweet, sweet sign.
"The Baptists get $11 million."
Such good, caring Christian brethren.
Lets also not ignore the fact that this bill states that if the woman does not wish to look at the screen of the ultrasound as its being performed, the woman must listen to a detailed description of the embryo/fetus and then be forced to take the print out of the screen-cap!
You know, in case she wants to hang it on the fridge.
Its a disgustingly obvious shame tactic. Maybe this woman is having her abortion because she has an ectopic pregnancy. Maybe she just cannot afford to support a child for any number of reasons. Maybe she's in an abusive relationship and would otherwise want a child, but not in these circumstances. Or maybe its just not the time.
Giving her a picture isn't going to make her change her mind. It's just compounding an already difficult decision into something even more difficult.
@Donna Locke: "Did this woman have an abortion, by the way?"
I fail to see how that's relevant to the discussion. The focus is his hypocrisy, not her decision which he may or may not have ultimately pressured her into.
That's great news - she's fantastic.
I read the Tennessean's yesterday and found it to be lacking because there are major issues with an Evangelical trying to write an objective history on Jefferson, trying to perpetuate all the rhetoric out there about how devoutly and fervently Christian the "Founding Fathers" were.
Ignoring Jefferson's deist outlook or the fact that he referenced the Qu'ran among other sacred and philosophical texts while writing the Constitution is akin to Texas taking it upon themselves to rewrite history books without slavery - because factual history is inconvenient and contrary to the narrative of history you're trying to dictate.
