Mike Adams seems to think that all Christian Groups and Denominations are as adamantly Pro-Life as he is. That is false, many Christian denominations and organizations based on those denominations are Pro-Choice. Yet, on www.cru.org. the Cru website (sorry Mike, but that is what they are called) I see articles on other issues of the day, such as the NFL's domestic abuse crisis. But then, I would imagine that all of Cru is pretty much in agreement on a response to that situation. Maybe Cru wishes to avoid issues on which it's own membership is divided. Personally, I'd prefer that WRTO such issues they present viewpoints from both sides rather than practicing self-censorship. But I do wish Mike would recognize that there are many of us Pro-Choice Christians, instead of just assuming that Cru must be a Pro-Life monolith. In that respect Cru has something to teach him.
What on earth possibly lead to the deletion of this comment: ====== I think that a string argument can be made that the cutting edge of any genocide against Black People in this country is our Police Departments and our Court System, not Planned Parenthood. ====== and the follow-up reply: ====== What I think is that most Abortions are performed during the 1st trimester, and I do not believe that they kill any human being, only a fetus. Most of the remaining tiny percentage of Abortiosn done later are done for reasons of medical necessity, and in those cases I am comfortable supporting the interests of the pregnant woman, who is indisputably a Human Being. over the interests of a possible, potential Human Being. Oh, and it's just as indisputably Human Beings that the Police kill. Black ones some 5X out of proportion to their percentage in the population. ====== Was someone offended by *this* ?!?!?!? Do you really want all these column comments to be that much of an echo chamber???
"Hamas is ISIS; ISIS is Hamas" Yes, all Arabs look alike. And the only good one is a dead one. Where have I heard this before?....

The last state in the USA that Bomberger and the rest of you haven't F---'ed up is Oregon, and their Abortion rate is below the national average. (Even though they treat people from other more restrictive states.) http://www.guttmacher.org/pubs/sfaa/oregon.html Maybe good sex ed and no restrictions on reproductive choices leads to fewer Abortions?
justemptypockets: "Sanger was a eugenicist. Though her main target was America's blacks, all the other undesirables were lesser targets, especially the poor. Considering the current percentage of black in our population compared to past numbers, seems they have been pretty successful " Really? The black population percentage in the USA is stable, in fact slowly growing since 1930 (hey, didn't PP start around then?) thru 2000, from 9.7% to 12.3%. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0922246.html and now it's 12.61%: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_the_United_States I guess those genocidal racists at Planned Parenthood have to try harder! Or maybe access to reliable low-cost birth control and Abortion services is a HEALTHY thing for people.
And in the article and all the comments I cannot find a single fact behind all the B.S. being slung at Debo Adegbile. I'd expect at least some out-of-context quote distorted to make him look bad, but there is nothing. It seems like his 'crimes' are defending Mumia in court and having a really, really African-Sounding name.
It *was* a travesty. Adegbile defended Mumia as the constitution provides for the defense of all accused -- as best as he knew how. Adegbile was feared by the right because of his advocacy for the Voting Rights Act. That's the real reason he was shot down. (BTW, Arnold Beverly confessed to the murder of officer Daniel Faulkner.)
""Get it through your head: the goal of the "Palestinians" ..." That will never happen. Nor will I ever get it through my head that, for example, all Jews are greedy misers, no matter how many greedy Jews you hunt up to serve as examples. Some Palestinians do want to annihilate Israel, you'll always be able to find some. I'm sick of you and people like you smearing the entire people with them. Routinely, you equate 'Hamas' with 'Palestinian' as if the West Bank were a fairy tale. And you utterly ignore the extent to which their hatred is motivated by their suffering at the hands of Israel.
I don't understand what you are talking about, tinsldr2. The URLs I reference above measure statistics within the borders of Israel and the Palestinian territories AFAIK. I haven't researched their sources, butthey say nothing I have not read of before. Far, far more Palestinians die in the ongoing conflict than do Israelis. Tinsldr2, no I did not know of Pres Sisi's offer of a couple weeks ago. maybe some good will come of it. It is not surprising that Abbas reacted negatively to the idea of uprooting the 2M+ Palestinians who call the West Bank home. BTW, do bear in mind that these people are not Hamas. They outnumber the residents of Gaza. The Fatah-led PA in (nonimal) charge of the West Bank fought a Civil War with Hamas.
