‘SAVE THE TREES, KILL THE CHILDREN’: AUSTIN, TEXAS CITY COUNCIL GIVES $150,000 TO FUND ABORTIONS

‘Save the Trees, Kill the Children’: Austin, Texas City Council Gives $150,000 to Fund Abortions

Measure will invariably lead to deaths of more unborn babies

SEPTEMBER 11, 2019

The Austin, Texas, city council this week passed a measure giving $150,000 of taxpayer money to fund abortions.

On Tuesday, the council announced a budget package allocating the cash to the city’s Public Health Department, which in turn will distribute the money to groups helping poor women secure abortions.

“Pro-choice” Austin City Councilman Greg Casar praised the bill for increasing “access to abortion,” a move that will invariably lead to the death of unborn babies.

“Every day the anti-abortion elements in Texas, in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, wake up and think, ‘How can we restrict access to abortion today,’” Casar told NBC. “That makes it our job, every day, to work to expand access to abortion and health care and other basic services related to abortion.”

Texas pro-life groups, however, lamented the fact the city passes resolutions to protect the environment and not the unborn.

“It is appalling the city of Austin doubled-down on its policies to ‘save the trees, kill the children,’” said Nicole Hudgins with the pro-life group Texas Values. “This budget amendment is a political stunt attempting to circumvent the law. If the city really wants to help women, they should lower their taxes and stop killing innocent children.”

LifeNews.com’s Micaiah Bilger notes Texas Gov. Greg Abbott passed a resolution this year preventing local governments from funding organizations which perform abortions, however, the city’s new measure appears to be an attempt to skirt that law by instead giving the money to groups that assist women in obtaining abortions.

Bilger writes the money could in effect fund late-term abortions by paying for women to travel to states where the practice is legal.

Pro-life group Texas Right to Life labeled the council’s measure “grotesque news.”

“This grotesque news is another example of the abortion industry exploiting taxpayers to profit off vulnerable women and kill preborn children,” they wrote.

So Woke: Disney, Netflix Threaten Georgia Boycott But Continue Work in Countries Where Abortion Is Illegal

By Dr. Susan Berry

Film industry giants Disney and Netflix are threatening to boycott the state of Georgia over its new “heartbeat” abortion law, but have continued and even stepped up filming in countries in which abortion is entirely illegal or highly restricted.

Variety reported Monday Netflix intends to increase production in Egypt – where abortion is illegal – with Paranormal, directed by Amr Salama and based on the horror books by late Egyptian author Ahmed Khaled Tawfik.

“We are excited to continue our investment in Middle Eastern productions by adapting the highly acclaimed Paranormal novels into a thrilling new series,” said Kelly Luegenbiehl, Netflix vice president of international originals.

Variety reported Paranormal is the third Middle Eastern Netflix original series. It follows Jinn, a teen drama with supernatural themes that was filmed in Jordan, where abortion is illegal, except to save the life of the woman or if her health is threatened. Women as well as abortionists can be penalized for defying the law in Jordan.

Despite filming in these nations, however, on Tuesday Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer, told Variety the company has “many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights … will be severely restricted” by the Georgia law that prohibits abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected.

Sarandos said Netflix would be working with the ACLU to fight the new law.

“Given the legislation has not yet been implemented, we’ll continue to film there, while also supporting partners and artists who choose not to,” he added. “Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia.”

While Disney Chairman Bob Iger commented that it would not be “practical” for his company to continue to shoot in Georgia, given its new abortion law, the Washington Free Beacon reported that Disney filmed part of its 2019 film Aladdin in Jordan as well.

The Free Beacon also noted that Disney owns the Star Wars franchise. In 2015, the company distributed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was filmed in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, where abortion is illegal except during the first 120 days of pregnancy and only when the mother’s life is threatened or the baby is diagnosed with a “lethal abnormality” that is “incompatible with life.”

Republican pollster Logan Dobson also observed on Twitter that Star Wars: The Last Jedi filmed scenes in Croatia, Ireland, and Bolivia – all nations in which abortion was highly restricted at the time of filming:

The Wall Street Journal editorial board noted the inconsistency in Disney’s policies, and specifically pointed out that the company also touts its theme park and films in China, where Turkic Muslims are being held in internment camps:

More than a few Americans may also notice the contradiction that Disney is more worried about filming in a U.S. state that has passed a law democratically than it is operating its theme park and hawking its films in China, which uses facial-recognition software to monitor its population and has a million Uighurs in re-education camps.

For decades, China also attempted to force control of its population with its “one-child policy,” which restricted the number of children a couple could have to only one.

Georgia’s Living Infants Fairness and Equality (LIFE) Act (HB 481) prohibits abortions in the state after a heartbeat is detected, usually at about six or seven weeks of pregnancy. Cases of rape, incest, or if the life of the mother is in danger are exceptions to the law.

Georgia is the third largest production hub in the country, due to its generous tax incentives.

Actress and political activist Alyssa Milano called for a Hollywood boycott of Georgia if Republican Gov. Brian Kemp signed the bill into law. Milano then followed with a call for a sex strike – urging women to engage in abstinence from sex – to protest the end to “reproductive rights.”

Netflix May Consider Boycotting Filming In Georgia; Conservatives May Consider Boycotting Netflix

In response to Georgia’s new law prohibiting aborting babies with a detectable heartbeat, Netflix said that the company may “rethink” filming in Georgia if the law goes into effect. In response, some conservatives are saying they will consider boycotting Netflix if they follow through on the Georgia boycott.

In a statement to Variety, Netflix’s chief content creator Ted Sarandos said the company will work with the ACLU to fight the Georgia law in court.​

“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law,” Sarandos said. “It’s why we will work with the ACLU and others to fight it in court.”

He also said Netflix will continue to film in Georgia due to the law not being yet implemented but will still work with partners and artists who choose to boycott the state.

“Should it ever come into effect, we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia,” Sarandos added.

In response, conservatives are threatening to cancel their subscriptions to Netflix.

Fox News contributor Guy Benson parodied a headline about Netflix’s statement to say that he may boycott the company.

“Benson would rethink Netflix subscription if abortion advocacy stands,” Benson tweeted.

Kira Davis, the Editor-At-Large of RedState, said she is also considering ending her Netflix subscription.

“I enjoy @netflix but there’s literally nothing on there I can’t live without. I’m totally happy to ‘rethink’ my investment as well. It’s a two way street, friends!”

Fox News Contributor Lisa Booth also chimed in.

“Works both ways, @netflix. Will gladly cancel my account,” Booth tweeted.

The Daily Wire’s Elisha Krauss said she would use alternative streaming services.

“Fine, I’ll pay for the @Disney app and cancel @Netflix,” Krauss tweeted. “My kids don’t need their programming and I can do without Ozark.”

Fox News contributor and Washington Post columnist Marc Thiessen warned the streaming service against alienating pro-life customers.

“Hey .@netflix nearly half the country is pro-life,” Thiessen tweeted. “Don’t alienate your pro-life customers. We have lots of streaming options these days.”

Several well-known producers and actors said they will avoid filming in Georgia due to the law, including actress Kristen Wiig who canceled her plans to film her upcoming comedy “Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar” in the state.​

In a tweet, producer Mark Duplass announced he would no longer film in Georgia and encouraged others to do the same.

“Don’t give your business to Georgia,” Duplass tweeted. “Will you pledge with me not to film anything in Georgia until they reverse this backwards legislation?”

Producers J.J. Abrams and Jordan Peele decided to still film their show “Lovecraft Country” in the state but plan to donate their fees to the ACLU of Georgia and Fair Fight Georgia, reported Bloomberg.​

Georgia is a favorable state for filming due to its generous film and TV subsidies, which have led to the popular show “The Walking Dead” and the hit movie “Black Panther” being filmed there.

Earlier this month Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed the “heartbeat bill” into law which bans abortions if a fetal heartbeat can be detected.

“(The bill) is very simple but also very powerful: a declaration that all life has value, that all life matters, and that all life is worthy of protection,” Kemp said at the time. “I realize that some may challenge it in a court of law. But our job is to do what is right, not what is easy. We are called to be strong and courageous, and we will not back down. We will always continue to fight for life.”

LIBERALS THREATEN TO KILL & RAPE PRO-LIFE WRITER & HIS FAMILY

Liberals Threaten To Kill & Rape Pro-Life Writer & His Family

“I hope your wife and daughter are both brutally raped”

By Kelen McBree

Conservative, pro-life writer Matt Walsh and his family have been threatened with death and rape by dozens of angry leftists who are upset about his stance on abortion.

“Over the last 24 hours pro-abortion people have threatened to kill me, kill my family, rape my wife, rape my daughter, and assault me,” he said. “They’ve wished death on me, on my children, on all pro lifers. They’ve wished rape on my wife and my daughter. I remember when the Left told us that criticism of Ilhan Omar was ‘putting her life at risk.’ Will leftists have the same concern for the lives of my wife, my children, and myself?”

As multiple states pass anti-abortion legislation, the left is becoming more hostile to pro-life Americans.

Matt Walsh was targeted after pointing out that pregnant rape victims account for less than 1% of abortions and arguing abortion is often used by abusers to cover up rape.

Walsh provided proof of the attacks he’s received for doubters, saying, “Leftists on this thread are saying they don’t believe me. I’ve already provided the evidence but I guess I’ll put it in this thread for the sake of convenience.”

Below are some of the worst messages sent to Walsh:

The End of States! Warren Calls for Federal Government Intervention to Keep Abortion Legal

CAP

By Penny Starr

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is calling for Congress to create and pass legislation that would make access to abortion mandatory across the United States.

Like many of her Democrat colleagues running for the 2020 presidential nomination, Warren is reacting to Alabama banning abortion and several other states poised to follow suit, most recently Missouri.

“These extremist Republican lawmakers know what the law is — but they don’t care,” Warren wrote in a commentary posted on the Medium website on Friday. “They want to turn back the clock, outlaw abortion, and deny women access to reproductive health care. And they are hoping the Supreme Court will back their radical play.”

And she blames Trump for the nation’s increasingly pro-life stance, including that he “stole” a seat on the United States Supreme Court.

“I’ll be blunt: It just might work,” Warren wrote. “President Trump has packed the courts with extreme, anti-choice judges. Senate Republicans stole a Supreme Court seat and rammed through the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh last year in order to cement an anti-choice majority on the Supreme Court.”

Warren claims, falsely, the abortion and “reproductive rights” are guaranteed in the Constitution. The court applied the Fourth Amendment’s right for citizens’ privacy to make legal abortion on demand the law of the land.

And because Warren and other pro-abortion politicians and activists know that the Roe V. Wade decision comes under renewed scrutiny by the high court, the law could be undone.

Her answer: federal government intervention that would stifle states’ right to make abortion laws, including lifting the ban on federal funding of abortions.

“Congress should pass new federal laws that protect access to reproductive care from right-wing ideologues in the states,” Warren wrote. “Federal laws that ensure real access to birth control and abortion care for all women. Federal laws that will stand no matter what the Supreme Court does.”

Government intervention would include:

  • Create federal, statutory rights that parallel the constitutional right in Roe v. Wade.

  • Pass federal laws to preempt state efforts that functionally limit access to reproductive health care.

  • Guarantee reproductive health coverage as part of all health coverage.

In her commentary, Warren inadvertently revealed how pro-life the nation is becoming, including 55 laws restricting abortion have been passed by state legislatures and 18 states have laws in place to kick in if the Roe decision. And 90 percent of counties in the country do not have an abortion clinic, according to data from 2014.

“This is a dark moment,” Warren wrote. “People are scared and angry. And they are right to be. But this isn’t a moment to back down – it’s time to fight back.”
