OMG! Jon Stewart Calls Va Ultrasound Bill TSA-Like Vagina Patdown | Do Girl Scouts Create Lesbian Communists?

va ShutterstockThe evangelical girls are happy. If you thought America’s political discourse couldn’t get much worse after Rick Santorum’s money man Foster Freiss told American women to put an aspirin between our legs as an affordable form of birth control last week, think again.

State Del. C. Todd Gilbert (R-Woodstock) via APAs the Virginia legislature debated (a term we use loosely) the new ultrasound bill requiring women to have a trans-vaginal rather than external ultrasound before an abortion, State Del. C. Todd Gilbert (R-Woodstock) called abortion a ‘lifestyle convenience’. Huff Po writes:

Within minutes of Gilbert’s statement, two Democratic lawmakers — Del. Mark Keam (D-Fairfax County) and Del. David Englin (D-Alexandria) — both sent out the remarks on Twitter. Englin, who commented “Wow” in his Tweet about Gilbert’s floor statement, said that Gilbert’s exact words were “a matter of lifestyle convenience.”

Englin explained further Gilbert’s comments saying that their defense that the intra-vaginal probe is not only the most invasive procedure that is now part of the Republican War on Women in Virginia but not requiring a woman’s consent to perform it reflects a commonly stated Republican position that women had already made the decision to be “vaginally penetrated when they got pregnant.”

Jon Stewart Calls Virginia Ultrasound Bill a TSA-Like Vagina Patdown

After a major silent protest against the legislation in Richmond, Va on Monday, leaders seemed to take a pause. Jon Stewart pointed out that Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell is vehemently opposed to TSA patdowns. Perhaps if the Governor could view the ultrasound abortion law as a TSA vagina pat-down, he would understand why people are so upset in Virginia and nationwide. Defending the Republicans, Stewart said that the action against women wasn’t ‘rape’ as it’s now called by Democrats in the state. Consider it a ‘regional quirk’, said the comedian.

“Whatever happened to Republicans being the party of small government?” Stewart asked, concluding with Reagan’s famous joke that the scariest words in the English language were “I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.” via Mediaite

Rick Santorum Against Prenatal Testing

The Republican candidate’s list of new rules for American women is awesome. Going into the CNN debate tonight in Arizona, the candidate surely won’t be complaining about not having enough questions.

Santorum has put all the social issues on the table front and center.

Are Kids of Gay Parents Better Off With Mom & Imprisoned Dad?

Karen and Rick Santorum via Getty ImagesRepublican presidential candidate Rick Santorum pontificated pre-primary in New Hampshire about the evils of gay marriage and even worse, gay parenthood. Santorum quoted an unnamed ‘anti-poverty expert’ (let’s hope it’s not George Rekers) who allegedly claims that children are better off having a parent in prison who has abandoned them than having two same-sex parents.

This assertion came as crushing news to three of the children in his boarding school audience who had gay parents.The LA Times reported then:

Allowing gays to marry and raise children, Santorum said, amounts to “robbing children of something they need, they deserve, they have a right to. You may rationalize that that isn’t true, but in your own life and in your own heart, you know it’s true.”

Rick Santorum’s views on gay marriage are well known, post his 2003 interview with the Associated Press in which the Republican candidate for president described gay marriage as no different from “man on child, man on dog, or whatever the case may be.”

While we wait for Santorum to cough up his sources for a ‘research position’ undocumented to professionals who track research studies on homosexuals, the Washington Post refers us to a study published in this month’s Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.

Quality of Life of Adolescents Raised From Birth by Lesbian Mothers,” is part of a long-term study of American lesbian families called the National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study, which is supported by The Williams Institute at UCLA Law, a research center specializing in sexual orientation law and public policy.

This study had a completely different conclusion than Santorum’s unnamed research guru.

In 2006, the LA Times concluded that there was no research that confirmed any negatives to the children of gay parents, while also stressing that the research field is still young.

In 2001, Judith Stacey and Timothy J. Biblarz, then sociologists at the University of Southern California, published a review of 21 previous studies of the children of homosexual parents (most of them lesbians). Almost uniformly, they wrote, the research found no systematic differences between children reared by a mother and father and those raised by same-sex parents.

The researchers expressed an observation that “The boys may be less aggressive. There’s some indication the girls will have a wider array of career aspirations.” The duo also concluded — not that the children are more likely to become lifestyle choice homosexuals themselves — but that they are inclined to be more experimental sexually.

Dr Tom Allen Reveals Karen Santorum As A Daddy's Girl, Calculating Woman Hypocrite

Updated on Wed, January 18, 2012 by Registered CommenterAnne

Karen Garver and Dr Tom AllenA Daily Beast eye opener Before Karen Met Rick is a jaw-dropper. We know that the GOP contender’s wife is opposed to birth control as well as abortion, even in cases of rape or incest. Mrs. Santorum — who herself survived a health emergency, receiving treatment most call a form of abortion but she insists was a natural delivery in the hospital of a 20-week old fetus that lived two hours, with no help from doctors or drugs (ahem) — has a new revelation.

Karen Garver Santorum lived through most of her 20s in a five-six year relationship with Tom Allen, a Pittsburgh obstetrician and abortion provider 40 years older than she.

The young woman’s father was a pediatrician and many of his patients were referred to him by Allen. Karen Garver left Tom Allen after meeting new love Rick Santorum. Karen apparently changed career courses from nursing to pursue her future as a lawyer. Garver met her future husband as an intern at Rick Santorum’s law firm.

Karen Garver Santorum, who left her six-year relationship with Dr Tom Allen after meeting Rick Santorum.Before changing gears, here please note that Rick Santorum said in 1997, that of course he would have chosen to save his wife’s life. Today he condemns her to death and their other children motherless — and Karen agrees.

“The doctors said they were talking about a matter of hours or a day or two before risking sepsis and both of them might die,” Santorum said. “Obviously, if it was a choice of whether both Karen and the child are going to die or just the child is going to die, I mean it’s a pretty easy call.”

Both Rick Santorum and his wife Karen are virulently opposed to any exceptions in the abortion debate, believing that birth control is also form of abortion. Believers in home schooling, it seems fare to say that the Santorums espouse a very traditional view of relations between men and women, even if Karen had a rather progressive beginning as a young adult woman.

Karen Santorum Lived for Several Years with National Leader in Safe Abortions

In fact, Dr Allen delivered Mrs. Santorum, born Karen Garver, in 1960. Karen Santorum’s six-year-long May-December affair began when she was 22 and a nursing student at Duquesne University and Allen was 63 and founder of the Magee-Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh.

Dr Allen’s enjoyment of much younger women was well known and the reason for his first divorce. Karen Garver called Allen for advice on an apartment near Duquesne University and moved into a basement apartment close by Allen’s two-floor apartment.

Recalling the day they began their relationship the Daily Mail picks up the story:

‘That first night, as soon as it got dark, she called to say she was scared and asked if she could come up.

‘I figured it was a come-on, but that was OK’.

During her relationship with Dr Allen, Karen Garver saw the world with several European holidays, as well as a trip to Hong Kong. Her partner bought her a grand piano and paid to have her teeth straightened. That’s a pretty sweet situation.

Six Degrees of Separation

Reading the Beast story, I shook my head over the details of Karen Santorum’s relationship with Dr Allen and his clinic, traveling back in time to my own Karen Garver years.

With Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann & Evangelicals, America Loses Its Mind

Images: Adrien Sahores & Bastiaan Van Gaalen | Anthony Maule | Vman Magazine ‘The Evangelist’

Evangelism in America

The Evangelical Rejection of Science NYTimes Op Ed

Anne here, highly recommending this NYT op ed piece by Karl W Giberson & Randall J Stephens. Karl W. Giberson is a former professor of physics, and Randall J. Stephens is an associate professor of history, both at Eastern Nazarene College. They are the authors of “The Anointed: Evangelical Truth in a Secular Age.”

Science is on trial in the Republican presidential field, now a bastion of evangelical anti-intellectualism. Not just parts of scientific research like climate change are under debate. Evolution is not only dismissed as an unproven theory, but all of archaeological discovery about the lives of humans before the Old Testament are ignored — as if the rest of the world is just crazy or launching a deceptive attack against pious Christians.

As an American, I do not recognize the country in which I live. The country that put a man on the moon is today capable of denying the very fact that it happened. Depending on whether or not the Republicans win the next elections, not only will the Republicans continue their relentless war on women.

Next, they will wage war on our minds and all intellect. Speaking for myself, this is the fascism I fear most. Call it tyranny dressed up for a Tea Party.

It’s as if scientific discovery, physics, and mathematics don’t exist. All answers for these extreme evangelicals who dominate the national dialogue lie in Genesis and ‘God’s Word’. As for educating our children with knowledge skills to make them competitive in a global economy, it’s heresy today. And we Americans let these people control our textbooks!!

Their deceptive fingers are in every pot of life today, chipping away at all forms of knowledge.

Fundamentalism appeals to evangelicals who have become convinced that their country has been overrun by a vast secular conspiracy; denial is the simplest and most attractive response to change. They have been scarred by the elimination of prayer in schools; the removal of nativity scenes from public places; the increasing legitimacy of abortion and homosexuality; the persistence of pornography and drug abuse; and acceptance of other religions and of atheism.

Note that on the subject of pornography, the most conservative amongst us — those who scream the loudest about pornography — are MUCH more inclined to be the ones watching it. The nation and the future of our children are held hostage because disproportionate numbers of conservative and evangelical men can’t keep their hands off the digital mouse. These perverted men monitor porn so that the rest of us won’t be contaminated.

This is a pathetic state of affairs for a nation that prides itself on being a leader of the free world.

Not All Evangelicals Reject Science

To be clear, not all evangelicals reject reason and science. Just Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and every other Republican candidate for president except Mitt Romney — who caves by the day to these dogmatic fundamentalists — and Jon M Huntsman Jr.
