It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter. On Wednesday, Richard Dawkins, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, posted a provocative tweet about abortion: With respect to those meanings of "human" that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.

If Islamophobia is a correct term, leading Atheists like Dawkins have been generally inconsistent in their attempts to discuss Muslims in a realistic manner.
Ironic as Muslims are among the most assimilated groups in the United States.
Dawkins has blundered before and most likely will again.

"Hitler's ideas and intentions were not self-evidently more evil than those of Caligula" may seem ill-informed to education persons.

The label on the bottle said it contained a common antibiotic, but prosecutors say inside was a drug that's often used to induce abortions.

Remee Jo Lee, 26, was six weeks pregnant when her boyfriend gave her a pill he said was prescribed by his father, a Florida fertility doctor, to treat a bacterial infection, according to court papers.

Lee says she trustingly swallowed the pill, and within hours started bleeding. She went to the hospital, where she had a miscarriage and learned that her boyfriend had tricked her into terminating her pregnancy, her lawyer alleges.

Now the ex-boyfriend, John Andrew Welden, 28, is in county lockup, facing a civil lawsuit and a murder rap.

A federal indictment unsealed Thursday charged Welden with product-tampering and first-degree murder under the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, charges that could carry a life sentence.

Remee Jo Lee says her boyfriend tricked her into taking an abortion pill and she miscarried at six weeks.

The lawyer who represented him at an initial appearance Wednesday did not return a phone call but said in court that the allegations were out of character for his client, according to The Associated Press.

In a civil complaint and statement, Lee's attorney described how an eight-month romance turned toxic when his client became pregnant in February.

Lee "was anticipating motherhood with great joy and excitement," but Welden begged her not to go through with it, lawyer Gil Sanchez said in a press release.

"Everyone dreams of becoming a mom. This was my chance," Lee told told Tampa's WFTS-TV.

In late March, Welden took Lee to his father's Lutz, Fla., clinic for a prenatal examination, including a sonogram and blood and urine samples that confirmed a healthy pregnancy, Lee's lawsuit says.

The next day, Welden told Lee that his father had diagnosed her with an infection and prescribed Amoxicillin, the antibiotic, the suit charges.

In reality, the doctor's son had forged a prescription for Cytotec, an ulcer drug that can be used for non-surgical abortions because it causes contractions, Lee's lawyer said.

"He came to my house with the pills, his weapon of choice," Lee told WFTS.

"He told me to keep taking them. I was supposed to take three a day for days."

Welden later admitted to Lee that he had fooled her, the suit claims. It describes his actions as "outrageous, beyond the bounds of decency and utterly intolerable."

The suit seeks unspecified damages in excess of $15,000.

"We may soon be seeking redress for Lee against others who may have some degree of liability for this heinous act," Sanchez said, without identifying anyone.

Welden, who worked at his father's clinic but was not a doctor, is the only person charged with a crime. Workers at the clinic declined to comment.

Still talking about hitler even after its been proven to you that he was catholic.

Its the stupidity of the lies that makes us wonder if the mental illness of faith will ever be cured.

That's because he never learned that real men are not violent, drunk felons. His father was obviously a lousy example.

Well, he claimed to have one son in a post to me, but apparently ALSO claimed to have two children in another poster. And, he's both said he's male AND that he's had a pregnancy.

He's also claimed to have been a "ballplayer", a "violent felon", AND that he's taught A&P at "the university level".

Personally, I think he's a pathological liar, who likely is not/had not been ANY of the above.

And I KNOW he's not a real man, even if he is male.

Mein Kampf

By Adolf Hitler

"Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator: by defending myself against the Jew, I am fighting for the work of the Lord." [p. 60].

“The folkish-minded man, in particular, has the sacred duty, each in his own denomination, of making people stop just talking superficially of God's will, and actually fulfill God's will, and not let God's word be desecrated. For God's will gave men their form, their essence and their abilities. Anyone who destroys His work is declaring war on the Lord's creation, the divine will.”

( Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Ralph Mannheim, ed., New York: Mariner Books, 1999, p. 562.)

Ah, the lying religious piece of sh*t returns:

“The anti-Semitism of the new movement (Christian Social movement)
was based on religious ideas instead of racial knowledge.”

[Adolf Hitler, "Mein Kampf", Vol. 1, Chapter 3]

“I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty
Creator. By warding off the Jews I am fighting for the Lord’s work.”

[Adolph Hitler, Speech, Reichstag, 1936]

“I have followed [the Church] in giving our party program the
character of unalterable finality, like the Creed. The Church has
never allowed the Creed to be interfered with. It is fifteen hundred
years since it was formulated, but every suggestion for its
amendment, every logical criticism, or attack on it, has been
rejected. The Church has realized that anything and everything can be
built up on a document of that sort, no matter how contradictory or
irreconcilable with it. The faithful will swallow it whole, so long
as logical reasoning is never allowed to be brought to bear on it.”

[Adolf Hitler, from Rauschning,_The Voice of Destruction_, pp. 239-40]

Darwin isn't an ism - Evolution is a fact - a fact that stupid creationist trolls like Buck cannot accept due to cult brainwashing.
