Todd Akin Supports Life and Deserves Our Support

 In the US Senate race for Missouri Claire McCaskill is running attack ads against Todd Akin regarding his comments about forcible rape and pregnancy. The pro-abortion Senator McCaskill claims she is concerned about women’s rights, unless of course the female is a baby being aborted. McCaskill supports all abortions including late term partial birth abortions. She is an ardent supporter of Barack Hussein Obama, a man who not only supports late term partial birth abortions, but infanticide. (See Obama’s opposition to Born Alive Act in Illinois).

Todd Akin’s first mistake was going on the biased Charles Jaco show.  Charles Jaco has no credibility. (see Jaco’s fake Iraq gas attack). Jaco was looking for a gotcha moment and he got one. Akin is a devoted pro-life supporter and what he said should not amount to a political death sentence where many “establishment” Republicans called on Akin to “fall on his sword” and drop out of the race for US Senate.

Nevertheless, let’s look at what Akin said. He said pregnancies are rare from forcible rape and believed woman’s bodies have a way of rejecting becoming pregnant because of the stressful attack. There is an article from Physicians for, where they claim assault rape pregnancies are rare, therefore Akin did not pull that thought out of thin air. Furthermore, according to Planned Parenthood only about 5% of woman who are forcibly raped become pregnant. That means 95% of victims of forcible rape do not get pregnant. Whether a woman’s body can actually reject pregnancy is unknown because there has not been a study on it. Yet, I have some friends who were very healthy and wanted to conceive, however they were unable to do so. They adopted a child and soon after they were able to conceive and had two biological children of their own. I have heard similar stories about other couples who could not conceive, but did so after adopting another child. This opens up the possibility of a woman’s body rejecting impregnation due to stress; however, I do not believe there have been any legitimate, objective studies on the phenomenon.

The following is a graphic description of what a Partial-Birth Abortion entails: According to National Right to Life: “Partial-Birth Abortion is a procedure in which the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb).  The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar.  He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound, and removes the baby's brain with a powerful suction machine.  This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby.”
  Planned Parenthood’s website states a partial-birth abortion procedure is called a D&E — Dilation and Evacuation. Their website explains the procedure in depth and point out, “In later second-trimester procedures, you may also need a shot through your abdomen to make sure there is fetal demise before the procedure begins.”  The website gives information on where to find an abortion provider and cautions “Please keep in mind that after about 24 weeks of pregnancy, abortions are usually performed only for serious health reasons.”

Late term partial birth abortions are not done to save the life of the mother because the baby is fully delivered except for the head. Therefore, the baby could be fully delivered and allowed to live. Nevertheless, Claire McCaskill still supports late term partial birth abortions.

Todd Akin cares about life and the life of the child unlike McCaskill who supports all abortion and Obama who not only supports all abortion but infanticide.  There are many other reasons not to re-elect Obama and McCaskill but most importantly, if someone does not care about the sanctity of life, how can you be sure they have the moral character to make the right decisions on any other matter?  That is why Obama and McCaskill need to be defeated November 6, 2012.

Romney/Obama Debate #1

Do not believe Barack Hussein Obama’s lying rhetoric, look at his actions.  Obama looked like the smallest person in the room just like he did when he was seated in the “war” room during the supposed Osama bin Laden killing.

Some contradictions/lies coming from Barack Hussein Obama in the October 3rd, 2012 Presidential debate:

Education: Obama said he cares about education, yet cuts funding for DC Charter schools.

Energy: Obama said he wants to expand energy production in oil, gas, and wind and solar, yet he shut down oil operations in the Gulf refused keystone pipeline and blew taxpayers’ dollars on Crony companies like Solyndra..

Budget: Obama talked about a budget, but Harry Reid and the Democrat controlled Senate have not passed a budget in 4 years.

Defense: Obama talks about the duty of the president to protect its citizens, yet does not adequately protect the Ambassador in Libya, even though he requested it.

Medicare: Going bankrupt. Obama takes billions from the plan to support Obamacare. Needs to be privatized.

Social Security: Going bankrupt. Obama wants to keep the status quo on it. Needs to be privatized.

Taxes: Obama said he has cut taxes for the middle class. Obamacare is a tax along with the additional taxes in it. Excises taxes on liquor and tobacco have also been increased.

Obamacare: Obama claims it will reduce costs and premiums; people will be able to keep their insurance and doctors. Obamacare is about control and was forced upon the American people by the
Democrat/Statists and will increase costs.

Outsourcing: GM and GE have moved some operations out of the US.



Ed Martin for Missouri’s Attorney General

      Chris Koster is running for re-election as Missouri’s Attorney General against Ed Martin. Koster ran an ad wherein he claims to have prosecuted over 100 murder cases, and won thousands of convictions. Yet, according to the US Census Bureau there were only 16 murders during the ten years he was the Cass County Prosecutor. 

       In another misleading ad Koster takes credit for prosecuting the murderer of a trooper and getting a death sentence conviction. In reality, it was Koster’s assistant prosecutor Kevin Zoellner who attended the trial and argued the case before the jury, not Koster. The ad also states Koster is all prosecutor, no politics; when in essence Koster is a political opportunist, who will do whatever is necessary to stay in power, including compromising principles. Koster at one time was a Republican; however, in 2007 Koster stuck his finger in the air to see which way the political winds were shifting and switched to the Democrat party.  Koster takes credit for something he really does not do, just like Barack Hussein Obama, who took and takes credit for “getting/killing” Osama bin Laden. You can not trust a man who does not stand on principles and lies about his record and accomplishments for political gain, as Koster does. Koster has no integrity and should not be Missouri’s Attorney General.

      The Missouri attorney general's job is to act as the state's lawyer, enforcing state law, representing state officials in legal disputes and defending state statutes in court and more importantly to represent the people against an overreaching Federal Government. Something Koster is reluctant to do, possibly because Koster is enamored with Obama and was giddy when I overheard him at a fundraiser describe his meeting Obama in the Oval Office. When Koster is so star struck by the president, you can not rely on him as the chief law enforcement officer in the state to uphold the will of the people and fight against an overreaching Federal Government.

       The people of Missouri overwhelmingly voted against The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka. Obamacare when they voted 71.1% for the Missouri Health Care Freedom Act, Proposition C. Proposition C aimed to block the implementation of Obamacare on the state and yet, Koster did not act to support the will of the people against an overreaching federal government. Koster also did not join the 26 other states in fighting Obamacare. It was only late in the game that Koster wrote a brief to the Supreme Court on Obamacare. Again, he did it for political expediency because of the challenge by Ed Martin for his job. Too little, too late.

        Ed Martin is a true conservative and is concerned with the direction this country is headed and he wants to do something about it by running for office. Ed is running for MO Attorney General and he deserves our support. The Democrat/Statist’s policies and rhetoric are detrimental to this country putting this country in dire straights. There is much work to be done to get America back on track. It starts with electing common sense conservatives like Ed Martin to be the people’s representative.
