Ectopic pregnancies CAN be saved, both the mother and baby can survive, if it is detected early enough.

WTF? Sometimes ectopic (tubal) pregnancies miscarry early with no intervention, but if that doesn't happen, as it usually doesn't, there is no way to save the baby, and failing to abort the pregnancy early carries a very high risk of death or severe permanent harm to the mother. The tube ruptures, the baby dies, and if the mother doesn't get very prompt hospital care, she will often bleed to death.

I'm not really in favor of taxpayer funding for any kind of medical care or for "welfare". But the current reality is that if a woman wants an abortion and can't get one, the bill taxpayers will end up stuck with -- regardless of whether the actual abortion is paid for with tax or private dollars -- is colossal by comparison to the cost of an abortion.

Most abortions are done for girls/women who are financially and/or or psychologically unprepared to raise a child. But if forced to carry a pregnancy to term, most will not give up the baby for adoption, but will be directed to obtain all kinds of taxpayer funding for themselves and their child. Instead of finishing high school or job training or a vocational community college degree, and gradually moving towards actually economic self-sufficiency, most will end up permanently or chronically dependent on taxpayer handouts.

Meanwhile, many of these involuntarily mothers don't really care much about their kids (and didn't care before they were born either, so did lots of alcohol and drugs while pregnant), and send them off to public schools in the worst areas, where the kids learn to use and sell recreational drugs, learn to engage in promiscuity, and in too many cases, learn to be career criminals with the associated costs to society of their crimes and their frequent prison stints. Some of the kids will be neglected and abused enough by mom and her parade of boyfriends, that they'll be put into the foster care system, often after being too severely damaged to function in a normal adoptive family setting.

I get that people who are vehemently opposed to abortion don't want to feel that they're being forced to pay for them, but if they don't have to pay the $200 or so for an abortion, then the taxpayers who did want them to have an abortion if they didn't want a baby shouldn't have to pay the tens of thousands (or even hundreds of thousands) per unwanted, damaged, troubled child brought into our society. So do we get all these kids born and them let starve, be abused without relief, warehoused in our sorry excuses for public schools and later our prisons,?

Actually there's a lot of evidence that the appendix has an important function in maintaining a reservoir of the intestinal microbiome, which is critically important to good health. Used to be that the appendix was pretty routinely removed when people were having abdominal surgery for another reason. Now the decision is made on a case by case basis and many surgeons prefer not to remove a nondiseased appendix.

Sounds like clickbait, with the only text shown being "Check this out" and a link to a domain I've never heard of. No thanks.

I've seen more than enough of GP's garbage. Never clicking on their bait again. There are plenty of other providers of significant news stories. If there's anything important going on with Warnock, I'll see it elsewhere (or have already seen it elsewhere).

I believe that Brennan is utterly corrupt and was blackmailed a long time ago into absolute obedience. Not sure who he's obedient to, but definitely one of the corruption-brokering cabals (probably the Saudis). Every time he opens his mouth in public, he looks and sounds like he's got an invisible gun right up against the back of his head.

That said, he would have been in college in the mid-1970s when he voted for a Communist Party candidate. Lots of people do silly shit when they're in college and outgrow their silliness. It was probably some sort of "protest vote" and not an actual desire to see Communist powers take over the US.

GP is clickbait garbage. Anything "interesting" that is fact-based will be covered by a more credible source.

Wikipedia is excellent for noncontroversial facts. It's also a good starting point for many potentially controversial topics, as long as you as check the footnoted source material and do some independent checking.

"En route to" does not imply "called to". Less than 2 weeks ago, Nick Fuentes was "en route to" Mar-a-Lago. But Poso is a lot more likely to be genuinely welcomed, regardless of whether he was "called to" or self-invited.

I think I'm in love with Elon. He's weird as hell and I hate electric vehicles and the Neuralink thing creeps me out, but I'm still in love!

Unfortunately, the DNC is not the government and is therefore not able to violate anyone's 1A rights. When Biden admin officials pushed Facebook and others to suppress the Hunter laptop story, THAT was an egregious 1A violation.

What we need is control of both the House and Senate, so that serious criminal investigation of Big Tech's election interference can proceed and lead to prosecution.

Now they've found her body and arrested a FedEx contract driver (who confessed) and charged him with capital murder and aggravated kidnapping. He had dropped off a package at her home around the time she went missing.

https://www.cbsnews.com/dfw/news/athena-strand-missing-7-year-old-girl-found-in-wise-county/

Still weird that the family told police she'd "done this" before. But the family had nothing to do with her disappearance and death.

her family told police that Athena had done this before and officials hoped they would find her in the night

Something is seriously wrong at home when a 7 year old girl is repeatedly leaving home on her own and getting more than a block away before deciding that running away wasn't a good idea after all.

Indeed, you should have the right to hate anyone you want to. Laws against "hate speech" or "hate crimes" are blatant violations of the First Amendment. And I have the right to dismiss as you an idiot if you say you "hate Jews" or "hate people with O negative blood".

I would certainly think the speaker was an idiot, and I'd care enough to make a mental note to never give any credence to anything that person said.

Maybe we should focus on educating the voting public so they won't be buyable. Seriously, most registered voters can't even begin to articulate any factual reasons for why they voted for the specific candidates they voted for. It's all vague impressions, general beliefs, some specific things that they can't cite any specific source for, etc. Obviously getting rid of the government schools would be an important place to start, since that the main place where fuzzy thinking is systematically ingrained in our nation's youth.

Ever think about how idiotic candidate yard signs are? How much money and volunteer hours are being spent printing and distributing those idiotic eyesores? And every candidate does it in every election, because there actually are millions of voters whose votes are swayed just by seeing a candidate's name over and over again, with no accompanying information at all.

Banning foreign/enemy agencies masquerading as churches sounds very sensible and very compatible with democracy.

Even Putin doesn't target Christians like this.

He controls the Russian Orthodox Church through his puppet Patriarch and strictly limits the activities of other Russia-based churches. And he has not hesitated to effectively ban foreign religions that he doesn't like, requiring them to register and get approval to operate, and limiting their activities (including religious speech) to their registered/approved buildings. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yarovaya_law

Fake news, which the bumbling mini-Trump's handlers should know better than to tweet. Zelensky is moving to ban the activities of a small number of churches calling themselves "Ukrainian Orthodox" which are controlled by the Russian Orthodox Church, which is controlled by Putin. The overwhlemingmajority of Ukrainians belong to churches which are part of the independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church. https://www.reuters.com/world/europe/ukraine-orders-probe-into-russian-linked-church-says-zelenskiy-2022-12-01/

Do your own legwork. Maybe start with the embedded Reuters link in the second paragraph of the article, which the article cites as its source. It's pretty obvious that the post title and the article URL are intentionally misleading, as even the text of the obviously biased article doesn't support the claim in the post title or article URL.

Crackdown on crime. The real tyranny is the "justice" system refusing to take habitual criminals off the streets and keep them off.
