Monopolies always provide low quality products. Don't expect cops to ever answer to the people while being funded by taxation.

First, the functions that create need for statistical monitoring need to be reduced.
 
#Data can help create better, more effective policy, but funding for statistical agencies is declining.

#budget   #funding  
Everybody lately loves anything having to do with data, but Congress has actually been reducing funding for our statistical agencies.

'just a clump of cells'
 
POSSIBLY specs for fetal tissue
It was just a picture posted to twitter from +Ken Gardner , no other sourcing than that, could be fake, caveats apply.

It does stand to reason that since it's a FACT that there are labs that procure these body parts, and it's a FACT that Planned Parenthood is one of the providers of those body parts, and it's a FACT that scientists are specific in their written requests for specimens, this certainly could be real.

If we had real investigative media in America, the labs like Stem Express would be investigated, and these things would have been produced with accurate sourcing already. But we don't actually HAVE investigative media here, so we have to make do with plausible images.

And realize - when you accept that abortions are legal in the 22-24 week range. When you accept that there is a free market trade in the body parts of these aborted fetuses. When you accept that digoxin is possibly not used in these 22-24 week abortions, because it renders the tissue unfit for medical research. You have to also accept the following:

The limbs that will meet these requirements were severed from the fetus carefully and with specific intent to make sure that the specimen met the requirements, and the baby was alive when it happened.

In order for this to be done legally:
No digoxin - baby's heart not stopped.
Breech presentation so the legs are coming out first.
Have to kill it before it's all the way out otherwise it's partial birth and that's illegal.
In order to get the leg and hip bones, the doctor can't be reaching in and killing the baby first.
You can figure this out.

There's no way it's not horrifying.

The Balkans and a few reflections on it. 
Is it in the nature of man to create chaos because the chaos is internal that then manifests itself externally?

For some reason I sat watching the documentary 'Death of Yugoslavia'. I enjoy history very much and countries and lands steeped in it.

What struck me as I watched it, is the depth of feeling people have for "their" land. Which leads to me to  wonder how or why anyone possesses land, since it, like water should be free. Why does one fight & kill to posses what never belonged to any one person or peoples anyway.
Again, it makes one wonder if Nationalism is really a good thing like many other 'isms'. From my view point it is not.

As I watched the BBC documentary (which is brilliant in its coverage of the then Yugoslavia)and the gradual escalation into mass murder, I could not help but be struck by the dead bodies of the common folk mutilated beyond recognition;while at the same time being shocked and dumb-struck by the intrigues & counter-intrigues; negotiations and counter-negotiations running parallel to it.  

The EU ministers and other Yugoslavian ministers and various self-interested parties going about meeting, negotiating, drinking tea, following etiquette, playing tennis,the smiles and hand-shakes back and forth all of this even as  ordinary people lay dead, dying, leaving behind their homes wrecked, the elderly, the kids, the women in deep shock and incomprehension writ on their faces and the utter incapacity to stop a genocide, that has parallels with other Nazi Germany  the Burundi genocide or now the Israel- Palestinian cause.

 Every where there seems to be a rise in chest-beating nationalism and patriotism.

I was in school when I heard the word 'ethnic cleansing'. I did not understand it then, I still don't. There was a Yugoslavian lady  my family knew, and from her perspective, nothing good ever came out of one of the worst genocides in human history.

(Srebrenica Genocide is not a matter of anybody's opinion; it's a judicial fact recognized first by the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and subsequently by the International Court of Justice.)
Never Forget the victims of the Selective Silence shown by the powers that be.

Yes , it would be okay, if it was just enough for our needs; but that's not how it works in reality does it?
Does one need to occupy another persons land to have enough of it. And where does that lead us to? Who in their right mind goes around kicking people out of their property by force? The same applies to nations. Hence the idea that holding a piece of earth is ridiculous.
 Purely man-made greed and self-interest that has everyone fighting for more and no solution in sight.

It's not just police. The government is trying to take over our lives, and the lives of our children. Even after CPS was caught in a lie, they kept these children from their parents.

The bias literally drips off the dailykos. Oh and the op is a moron as well.
 
Few things can bring me to rage these days, but the ignorant stupidity of the political right is accomplishing that. The frustrating thing is that no amount of facts or proof to the contrary is going to penetrate the couple of stupid infesting their brains. I'm all for people having their own opinions and views, but when someone tries to counter my facts and proof with lies and ignorance, that's where I draw the line.
By now, most of the country has heard about the 'undercover' videos taped ...

+Steve Lolyouwish I think that what Planned Parenthood does with aborted babies is precisely as problematic as abortion itself -- and that abortion is very problematic. But I had 500 words to make one point, and the point I wanted to make is that Planned Parenthood is a corporate welfare driven, politically privileged business, not the charity some people want to make it out to be.
