Ohio Requires Abortion Doctors to Conduct Non-Existent Fetal Viability Tests on Women

Conservatives are often lambasted for their ignorance of science and medicine, particularly when taken in combination with their desire to pass laws about these same topics. Pro-life “gynoticians” are particularly infamous for this… like Vito Barbieri, who graced his fellow Idaho state representatives with his musings about whether women could swallow a camera for remote gynecological exams.

Ohio’s anti-abortion warriors might have topped him, though, when it comes to sheer ignorance. Among a slew of abortion restrictions passed in the past few years is one that mandates that women seeking an abortion after 20 weeks must undergo a fetal viability test before having the procedure done. The problem?

The test doesn’t exist.

Pastor’s Wife Who Works In Abortion Clinic Shrugs Off Critics, Tells Them To Call Back When They Are Free Of Sin

That Bible verse about not judging lest you be judged? Or the one about not casting the first stone unless you’re free of sin? Or the one that advises you to worry less about the speck in another person’s eye than about the plank in your own?

You won’t find many churchy couples in Alabama who put that into practice — at least not the way Callie and Louis Chatman do. Louis Chatman is the pastor of New Elam Baptist Church in Montgomery. His wife Callie works in a local abortion clinic, and he’s not above driving her to work.

A Baptist preacher’s wife in Alabama who works at a local abortion clinic hit back at her critics Monday, declaring that those who criticize women who work at abortion facilities should first address the sins in their own lives before criticizing what women do with their own bodies.

I feel that we have all sinned. None of us are perfect. No sin is greater than any sin. I don’t know why, other than that’s the only decision [abortion] that a woman could make. That’s her right to make that decision because that’s her body,” Callie Chatman, a certified medical technician who works at Reproductive Health Services told the Christian Post in an interview Sunday.

Pro-Life Legislator Defends Faith-Healing Parents: “If I Want to Let My Child Be with God, Why is That Wrong?”

Christy Perry (below) is an Idaho Republican State Representative who champions her support for the sanctity-of-life on her website, where she lists it as a pressing issue. So, presumably, if such a self-styled champion of life heard that parents were allowing their children to die of easily treatable illnesses by withholding medical treatment, her pro-life commitment would ensure that she was at the forefront of the movement to protect the lives of those children. Right?

Not so much. According to a report from Al-Jazeera America‘s Leah Sottile, Perry suggests that faith-healing parents

… are more comfortable confronting death. “Children do die,” Perry said. “And I’m not trying to sound callous, but [people calling for reform] want to act as if death is an anomaly. But it’s not. It’s a way of life.”

Which might have been Perry’s first clue that something was wrong — because death should not be just a “way of life” for children.

University of Scranton President Wants to Eliminate Abortion Coverage for Life-Threatening Pregnancies

Scranton, Pennsylvania doesn’t always come off well in the public eye. It was the hometown of the fictional Dunder Mifflin and Michael Scott; it’s where chronically-embarrassed Vice-President Joe Biden is from. It’s also the location of the aptly-named University of Scranton, whose president, Father Kevin P. Quinn (below), is so opposed to abortion that he wants to cut insurance coverage even for women whose lives are depending on that access.

South Dakota Republican Thinks Planned Parenthood is Worse Than ISIS

South Dakota Republican State Rep. Isaac Latterell (below) has an important message for the people of his state. Dilation and evacuation abortions are basically “beheading unborn children” — and since you don’t like when ISIS beheads other people, you should be outraged that Planned Parenthood offers abortion.

To that end, he has put forth House Bill 1230, the Preborn Infant Beheading Ban of 2015, which would outlaw the procedures and jail violators.

Yes, really.
