Jeffrey Lord: Las Vegas Happened Because Abortion

“How in the world in a culture — if a culture does not value life do we get into this situation? We get into this situation, I would suggest, and perhaps we need to finally have the conversation about abortion. Now, Nancy Pelosi is concerned about preventing many deaths. How many millions of babies have lost their lives here because of a ‘right to choice’ that was written by the Supreme Court out of thin air?

“If we have a culture that disrespects human life and teaches people to have disrespect for human life, how else are we going to wind up than we did with this guy in Las Vegas who had no respect for human life?” – Shitcanned former CNN commentator Jeffrey Lord, speaking on Sean Hannity’s SiriusXM show.

        Three things they carry around are bible, constitution and flag.
        The bible to thump.
        The constitution to confuse.
        The Flag to wrap around themselves and feel patriotic.
        With the three they feel SPECIAL.

    • Phil2u

      Good movie…my aunt took me to see it in the theater when I was 6 or 7 years old… 50 cents admission / 25 cents popcorn. One of my older cousins was the popcorn “popper.” He was 16 years old. The machine sat out on the street near the entrance so the “colored folk” could buy popcorn before entering from the side and going up to the balcony. If the owner was not hanging around, I would get the popcorn for free. I liked waiting in line with the black boys; they were nicely dressed, had pomaded hair and smelled of Pinaud.
      Rex Reason made me squirm, even at that age.

        Yup, that’s exactly it. Trump is so smart he can rule the free world AND play golf at the same time!

        Same mentality that thinks “He’s been married 3 times, is a serial adulterer/lothario, never goes to church, can’t name a single verse in the Bible, but he’s a Christian!”

    • Willys41

      The more time Trump spends playing golf the less time he has to devote to destroying the nation and the world.

  • Acronym Jim

    Is this some of that “equal time” Trump was bitching about not having? Talk about a waste of time and space.

  • greenmanTN

    Sure, Jeffrey, let’s talk about the culture of death in this country.

    The adults and children without access to healthcare.
    The mindless support of “gun rights” over everything else.
    Cuts to Medicare and Medicaid to give tax cuts to the very wealthiest.
    Support for insurance companies over consumers.
    Racist and xenophobic public policies that endanger lives.
    Withholding aid and support to people after natural disasters.

    I could go on….

    • MarkOH

      How children are precious….until they are born. Then they are on their own.
      Or the willingness to allow LGBT folk to be murdered for how God made them.
      I, too, can go on

    • jonfromcalifornia

      Yes, and now these conservative idiots want to ban BIRTH CONTROL! A way to AVOID abortions. How stupid is that???

      • cleos_mom

        Not as stupid as you might think. A woman who can’t control her own fertility has zero control over her own life.

        You know. Traditional culture. Strong on family .

    • RNegron

      They never quite get to pro-choice. They do become very pro-abortion.

      • Chris Baker

        It’s the mentality that they are smarter than everyone else and only use abortion when it’s really necessary, not the stereotypical poor woman who gets a dozen or so abortions.

      It still was’t her choice. He was telling her to do it.

      • GayOldLady

        If I had a dollar for every time in my life I heard the story of a man trying to convince a woman to have an abortion, I’d be rich!

        • iambu

          And yet, they think those of us who are pro-choice ALWAYS want abortion for every pregnancy. Reproductive coercion is reproductive coercion no matter how you slice it. S’why we use the word “choice.”

          • cleos_mom

            As I recall that was essentially the conclusion of Surgeon General Everett Koop when “post-abortion trauma syndrome” rivalled big hair and off-one-shoulder sweaters in trendihood. He discovered that this was a thing — but (1) it occurred most often in women who had been convinced to have an abortion against their will — when it wasn’t a choice, in other words; and (2) it wasn’t nearly as common as some people wanted to think

            Rotten Reagan made the mistake of hiring an honest man. Not a blunder he made very often.

  • Ken M

    When the right to lifers start filling out adoption papers and signing off to pay all expenses to carry to term, by guaranteeing a potential future for that which they hold so dear, then maybe they will actually have a right to protect it.

      No, they should pay for sane people to raise those kids. Being raised by some of those anti-abortion kooks would be a fate worse than death for many.

    Jeffrey’s right. No one’s bodily autonomy is more important than the life of another human being. That’s why we should harvest Jeffrey’s organs for life-saving medical procedures. He has two lungs and two kidneys, the greedy fuck.

  • Ninja0980

    Folks like Lord claim there are pro-life but they don’t care about the health of the mother in some of these cases.
    And once the baby is born, they don’t give a fuck.

    • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

      To them, an unborn fetus is MORE IMPORTANT THAN AN ADULT WOMAN.
      That is painfully clear.

    • lymis

      They really need to be called “pro-birth” because they sure don’t give a crap about anyone’s actual life.

      • Duck

        “pro-forced birth” is probably a bit more accurate.

      • cleos_mom

        “Pro-death” could certainly describe a ban on late-term abortions since they’re almost always done for medical reasons.

        And imagine not being able to get surgery for an ectopic pregnancy if all abortions were outlawed. There would be no way to survive it, it would be a slow, agonizing death; and once the War On Opioids gets underway the woman would be kindly provided with an aspirin or two for the pain.

  • Bluto

    Because a woman who has self-determination of her body is worse than an ammosexual shooting 600 people.

    Thank goodness we have these wise, perceptive readers of god’s mind, to interpret the reason for natural and human disasters. Otherwise I would be totally clueless. I thought the killings in Las Vegas were due to the gayz. But now I see it was due to abortion.

    It these critters would spend half as much time dealing with causes, and figuring out ways to prevent things such as mass killings, and ways to mitigate the disasters of hurricanes before they occur, they would be doing something worthwhile for humanity, rather than doing things for themselves by using the aftermath as a means to line their pockets.

    Notice these assholes never talk about the lost work time and hospital bills of humans hurt by these crimes.

  • Macbill

    When is a clump of cells a ‘person’? For the religious, when does a clump of cells get a soul? Theologians have argued that for centuries. Why do you get to choose?

    • A clump of cells becomes a person the moment it draws it’s very first breath and can live on it’s own. Before that it’s nothing more than a parasitic invader.

  • A friend commented on The Other Social Media that the Biblical definitions of being alive were originally centered around “breath” (“breath of life”, etc.) So if we’re going to cherrypick Biblical meanings, abortion becomes a non-issue.

    • Reality.Bites

      Which proves rather decisively that cavemen have no insight into these issues and should leave it to people who understand science

    • popebuck1

      Oh, the Old Testament is quite clear on when life begins: with the first breath. And it stands to reason. Hygienic conditions and medical knowledge being what they were, stillbirths and post-natal mortality must have been rampant. There was no reason to consider a fetus a “person” until it got all the way out and was breathing.

      There’s a verse in Leviticus somewhere that spells this all out explicitly – if you killed a woman you were treated as a murderer and executed, but causing a pregnant woman to lose her baby only warranted a fine.

      The pro-forced birth movement has always had to dance around this plain fact, instead concentrating on metaphoric descriptions like “before you were formed in the womb, I knew you.” But the awkward fact remains: the Bible does NOT treat fetuses as people.

      • cleos_mom

        For many, many centuries “quickening” (movement) was the standard. Herbs for abortions were part of every midwife’s kit, as late as the 1800s.

  • -M-

    We respect life, that includes women’s lives, therefore they have the right to choose.

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    Babies are people.
    Fetuses are not yet people.
    Physical autonomy after the cord is cut is how a fetus makes the shift from parasite to person.

  • lymis

    Holy cats.

    So, if you feel that the problem is that society doesn’t respect life, you can talk about abortion because of a mass shooting, but you can’t talk about guns and gun control?

    • Reality.Bites

      You can always talk about abortion control. You can never talk about gun control.

      Hope my handy guide helps. 😉

  • Willys41

    Las Vegas happened because people have perverted the Christian religion in order to use it to justify every kind of evil, including the evil of getting rich.

    • MBear

      It was pretty perverted to start with

    • CottonBlimp

      Not like the good old days when Christianity stood for authoritarianism, genocide, and cannibalism.

  • lymis

    And if you want to have any sort of meaningful discussion of abortion, you also have to have a meaningful discussion of free and easy access to birth control and high quality sex education, as well as discussions of things like adoption and a living wage for everyone.

    It isn’t the people who support abortion who haven’t been willing to “finally” have that sort of conversation.

    Abortions happen because conservatives fight so hard against sex education and contraception. And gun massacres happen because conservatives fight so hard against the simplest gun control measures, like background checks and registration, to make sure any old maniac or nutcase can buy up a shit ton of guns and ammo and shoot the place up.

    • boatboy_srq

      Not to mention in either cases their fighting so hard against the simplest and most straightforward of health coverage, which would make family planning so much more effective and would identify and treat “any old maniac or nutcase” long before the kids got knocked up or the loons armed themselves.

    • Chris Baker

      Right. If you’re anti-abortion you should be pro-sex-ed and pro-contraception. You can’t stop people from having sex. It’s naive to think “If we don’t tell teenagers about sex, maybe they will never know about it.” Of course, the only people who suffer are women who get pregnant.
