I have prayed outside so-called “Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center” many times. This is the abortion mill – though butcher shop might be a more apt description – operated by former baptist minister and long time abortion fanatic Curtis Boyd. A woman probably undergoing an abortion apparently had a medical emergency at Boyd’s shop recently. Which is hardly surprising, considering the atrocious conditions found inside, as detailed in a 22 page report listing health and safety violations at the abortion mill. Lots of very revealing, if terrifying, detail below:
An ambulance was called to Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas, Texas, on January 12, 2017, to aid a woman who was removed from the abortion facility in a wheel chair prior to being loaded into the ambulance.
According to radio communications obtained by Operation Rescue, an ambulance was dispatched to the abortion facility at 12:21 pm. The recording indicated that the woman in need of emergency care was having difficulty breathing.
Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center (SWSC) is considered a high-volume abortion facility, conducting approximately 50 surgical abortions per day. It is owned and operated by aging abortionist Curtis Boyd, who turns 80 in March and is said to still conduct surgical abortions there………
However, the most recent inspection report available for SWSC, dated November 24, 2015, tells a different story about horrific conditions women have been subjected to there.
Within the 22 pages of violations were found a litany of problems, including untrained staff, unsanitary conditions, failure to maintain the sterility of surgical instruments, and failure to follow up with women who were given abortion drugs, to name a few.
However, perhaps the most shocking finding was related to SWSC’s storage and disposal of contaminated waste and aborted baby remains.
Inspectors found the Biohazard Room packed “floor to ceiling” with bags of soiled linens and biohazard boxes. There was a refrigerator that contained aborted baby remains, but the room was so junky, that the inspector could not access that refrigerator.
On the second day of the inspection, bags of dirty linens were found crammed into nearly every available space, including the patient recovery room. Again, access to the refrigerator storing aborted baby remains was not possible due to the obstructions, which the staff never bothered to remove.
If the storage refrigerator could not be accessed, one can only wonder how the remains from the day’s abortions could possibly be refrigerated, and how it was possible for a disposal firm to collect the refrigerated remains.
Unfortunately, SWSC isn’t unique when it comes to badly failing health and safety inspections. The most recent inspection reports available for each abortion facility in Texas were obtained by Operation Rescue. They showed 16 out of 17 abortion facilities failed their inspections and were cited for a wide range of violations.
Of course, with the courts overturning the very sensible restrictions the State of Texas had placed on abortion mills, requiring them to meet minimum health and safety standards, the standards against which abortion mills are judged are much less stringent than they should be. When that Texas law – HB2 – was passed, the vast majority of the state’s mills closed. They were unable to make a fat profit while meeting minimum health and safety standards. Now that the law has been overturned by the unelected black robed oligarchy that rules this country, mills are free to conduct their business amidst atrocious, horrifying conditions.
And why wouldn’t they? Individuals dedicated to the wholesale slaughter of perfectly innocent children are unlikely to have any scruples over such a trivial thing as health code violations. That is why state health code enforcement against abortion mills must be rigorous and severe. But it’s not. In fact, it’s the opposite, mills are constantly allowed to continue operating even with numerous ongoing, unremediated violations. The whole thing reeks of collusion, and the women seeking abortions are the ones who ultimately pay the bill.
Pro-aborts love to use scare-tactics regarding sensible abortion restrictions, claiming that the day of the back-alley butcher and coat-hanger abortion will return en masse if mills are required to maintain even the slightest standards. But doesn’t that reveal a great deal about just who populates the abortion industry, and the kinds of depths they are ever-ready to stoop to in their unquenchable pursuit of profit?
That is to say, the supposed “abortion doctor” of today is in reality the very same as the “back alley butcher” of yesterday, he’s’ just hung a shingle and set up shop in a filthy, unkempt facility. Thus, the Left’s supposed sacrosanct concern over “women’s health.” What a crock. Like everything else, it’s a monstrous, diabolical lie.

So the pro-abort Guttmacher Institute has put out its annual compendium of abortion statistics and reported that fewer than 1 million surgical abortions were performed in the US in 2014, for the first time since 1975. This would normally be a cause for rejoicing (while lamenting the fact that there are still mountains of dead babies every year even still), but there are certain caveats that make this report less than heartening. First, at least part of the reduction in surgical abortion can be explained away by the continuing implosion of the conception rate, especially among native born American women. Another factor is the rise of chemical/pharmaceutical abortion, the “morning after pill” and such like, which are not “counted” as abortions in the statistics. Many deeply involved in the pro-life movement report that these chemical abortions are increasing at an alarming rate, so that the total abortion rate may indeed by higher than it was a few years ago. Chemical abortion is often preferred as it can be done at home and doesn’t involve much of the trauma and medical risk of surgical abortion.
The final negative factor on the abortion rate is an increase in the use of long term contraception, which is very nearly self-sterilization in the form of IUDs. Use of long-term contraceptives exploded over the past several years and is probably also driving the abortion rate down.
At any rate, here’s the report from a non pro-abort source:
Great news, if not surprising news. As contraceptive technology has improved, as the taboo against using it has shrunk, and as new restrictions on abortion have passed in various red states, it’d be odd if the rate weren’t declining.
The pro-choice Guttmacher Institute, which conducted the survey, says there were fewer than a million abortions performed last year for the first time since 1975. Which is also good news, once you get past the whole “a million children aborted every year for 40 years” thing.
Some really bad news:
By the way, according to two polls taken last year, approval of birth control as either morally justified or not a moral issue is virtually unanimous among Americans. Gallup found 89 percent willing to call contraception “morally acceptable.” When Pew asked a similar question, just four percent overall (and eight percent of Catholics) deemed it morally wrong.
Thanks, bishops and priests of Amchurch! Mission accomplished.
Know this, and without the slightest doubt – the progressive/modernist faction in the Church intends to do the same with divorce and sodomy as they have done with contraception, turn them into moral non-issues for the vast, vast majority of Catholics. That includes, naturally, making the Blessed Sacrament available to those who have been civilly remarried with no annulment of their first marriage – as what’s the point of being Catholic if you can’t line up to get your “reward” every week like everyone else?
Think how many priests should have at least strongly suspected that the vast majority of their married couples with two or one or zero kids never once challenged them on the exceedingly strong likelihood that they were receiving the Blessed Sacrament while actively practicing contraception. That’s a massive failure of moral duty and a very large part of the reason why the Church continues to implode in a self-inflicted crisis.
Even writing this feels like whistling past the graveyard. Outside a handful of isolated traditional communities and even rarer Novus Ordo parishes with solid priests, no one in the Church cares in the slightest. Everyone continues to believe their happy fantasies that God is just a good guy in the sky that never holds anyone even slightly accountable for the moral evils they commit. He’s the cosmic Pez dispenser handing out eternal life to all who come calling. That this is utterly contrary to both Scripture and Tradition is, of course, conveniently forgotten.
Enjoy your newchurch while it lasts, boys. It won’t be around for very long. People can get their empty, meaningless, happy-clappy emotional/spiritual kumbayah experience just as well at home as they can in your parish. It won’t be long before the vast majority of the few remaining active Catholics start to figure that out.

……ostensibly to somehow make kids safe. Leftism = rejection of God’s Law = any moral travesty is possible.
Beginning on Jan. 1, prostitution by minors will be legal in California. Yes, you read that right.
SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution.
This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government with a two-thirds “supermajority.” To their credit, they are sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking. Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side. [It also shows the total amorality of the Left. You cannot commit evil that good may come of it. Here, government is deliberately permitting a moral evil in order to obtain a perceived good (and that perception is fatally flawed). This is morally repugnant, and indicates what government divorced from right religion will quickly descend to]
The unintended but predictable consequence of how the real villains — pimps and other traffickers in human misery — will respond to this new law isn’t difficult to foresee. Pimping and pandering will still be against the law whether it involves running adult women or young girls. But legalizing child prostitution will only incentivize the increased exploitation of underage girls. Immunity from arrest means law enforcement can’t interfere with minors engaging in prostitution — which translates into bigger and better cash flow for the pimps. Simply put, more time on the street and less time in jail means more money for pimps, and more victims for them to exploit. [And more misery for the children lost in this nightmare, many of whom are, yes, here illegally, and thus very difficult to track]
As Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley, a national leader on human trafficking issues, told the media, “It just opens up the door for traffickers to use these kids to commit crimes and exploit them even worse.” Another prosecutor insightfully observed that if traffickers wrote legislation to protect themselves, it would read like SB 1322…….
……..The common thread running through this avalanche of liberal-left legislation is the total absence of common sense and a stubborn insistence on ignoring human nature. On a certain level, we shouldn’t be surprised. After all, progressives still believe eliminating poverty is a matter of spending enough money on enough government programs. Despite spending $15 trillion on anti-poverty and welfare programs since 1965, our national poverty rate is actually slightly higher today than it was then.
Indeed. Whether they are useful idiots or men of deliberately evil intent, Leftism is ultimately about acquiring power for leftists. If a few million souls have to suffer irreparable injury or even death in the process, well, that’s just the breaks. Can’t make an omelette, and all that. Kids, despite their claims to the contrary, are their absolute lowest priority, if not something the Left generally despises. Why else would the Left hold as its most unassailable point of policy the murder of children and their frustration from ever coming into existence, while also encouraging divorce and other immorality that has the effect of ruining the lives of most of the few children that do manage to be born? Anytime I read a leftist start talking about doing something “for the children,” I cover my wallet and unholster my gun.
Figuratively speaking. Sort of.

……but it’s a heckuva lot better than a lot of places. Two recent bits of evidence to that end, Texas has officially removed Planned Murderhood from its list of approved Medicaid “health care” suppliers, and a Texas judge has declared Obama’s plan to allow full-grown, mentally-ill men to legally use little girl’s restrooms unconstitutional:
Texas officially removed Planned Parenthood from the state’s Medicaid program Tuesday, according to a report from the Texas Tribune.
A legal notice obtained by the Tribune said the $3 million in Medicaid reimbursements the organization received in 2015 will be canceled in 30 days. Planned Parenthood could request a hearing with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission to delay the cutoff date, but officials told the Tribune they would resolve the matter in court.
“Planned Parenthood continues to serve Medicaid patients and will seek a preliminary injunction in an ongoing lawsuit filed in November 2015, following the state’s original threats to take action against Planned Parenthood’s patients,” Yvonne Gutierrez, executive director of Planned Parenthood Texas Votes, told the Tribune. [Everything is inverted, everything is inside out. This is not taking action against Banned Parenthood’s patients, but against Planned Parenthood itself. But PP is deeply politically unpopular, so they erect a virtual shield in the form of whatever patients they’ve had. Unfortunately, since this will go to the courts, it’s a crap shoot as to how it will come out. With Trump in, the odds improve somewhat, but are far from a certainty that the courts will rule rightly. All it takes is one leftist judge and all Texas’ gains in the pro-life area can be undone.]
The state has been looking to completely remove Planned Parenthood from the state’s Medicaid program since October of last year, after a series of undercover videos was released that showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the use of fetal tissue for research. [The videos didn’t show Planned Butcherhood “discussing the use of fetal tissue for research,” they showed numerous Planned Barrenhood employees planning the sale of vast volumes of baby parts for profit, in addition to conducting illegal partial-birth abortions in order to save the most profitable bits.]
The anti-abortion group behind the videos claimed Planned Parenthood was improperly collecting fetal tissue from abortions and profiting from tissue donation reimbursements. Planned Parenthood officials have denied these claims and said they haven’t broken any laws. [Sure, and 99% of those on death row claim they’ve never committed a crime]
Now, regarding the do or die issue of 2016 for the outgoing, diabolical Obama Administration, transgender bathrooms. Foiled again, Barry Hussein:
A federal judge in Texas issued another crushing blow to President Obama’s transgender agenda Saturday: The judge granted a temporary injunction halting federal health officials’ efforts to enforce rules that would “likely violate” the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
In a 46-page decision, U.S. District Judge Reed O’Connor sided with the state and ruled that the Obama administration’s attempts to tailor health regulations while bolstering trans individuals’ rights would “likely violate” the RFRA by placing “substantial pressure on Plaintiffs to perform and cover transition and abortion procedures.” The rule, which was geared toward preventing discrimination against trans persons, failed to persuade O’Connor as he weighed its implementation against the possibility of violating doctors’ religious beliefs. [Everything, including the ludicrous “transgender bathoom” issue, comes back to abortion, for the Left. It’s the source and summit of their demonic faith]
……..as O’Connor noted, the rule would have “imposed a substantial burden” on private health care providers’ abilities to honor their religious exercise and expression because the rule contains no suitable exemptions.
“The regulations at issue would force doctors to enforce gender transition procedures even on young children, even when doctors believe the procedure is harmful,” Luke Goodrich, an attorney with the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty representing the case’s plaintiff, told the Houston Chronicle……
…..O’Connor’s Saturday decision marked the second time he has actively thwarted the Obama administration’s agenda in 2016. Back in October, the judge blocked the federal government’s move requiring public schools to allow trans persons to use whichever restroom suited their gender identities. [Good for Reed O’Connor. One of the few good things that came out of the Bush ’43 administration]
The article did not even touch on an equally egregious aspect of Obama’s ploy, in addition to his attempt to impose immorality through governmental force, no matter how much it harms beliefs deeply held by millions of Americans, and that is his attempt to legislate by executive fiat. Obama knows transgender bathrooms are deeply unpopular across much of the country and there is absolutely zero chance that Congress, as presently constituted, would pass a law imposing such. Knowing that he is constitutionally thwarted, Obama, as he has often done, has tried an end-run through executive fiat. Sadly, due to the weakness of Republican leadership in Congress (and, more than likely, their private agreement with him on many of these issues), Obama has been permitted to function in this rule by decree manner far too often, and gotten away with it.
I pray Trump examines ALL the areas in which Obama has attempted to force his agenda through like a tin pot dictator, and repeals them all, including these cultural/social issues that are really even more important that economic/political ones. If he did that alone in his first 30 days his administration would be off to a strong start.

Well well well. A socialist government, on its way out of power, has taken repeated steps in recent months to block the ability to pro-lifers to speak against abortion, and has now proposed a drastic step to more or less make pro-life speech illegal in France, or at least very sharply curtailed.
This is so very revealing of the true nature of Leftism. Their inveterate hatred of Christianity, and especially Christian morals, causes them to upend even supposed rights sacrosanct to the left-liberal ideology, like free speech. Eventually, far enough down the road (and we’re not very far from that point in this nation, even with the election of 2016), the Left will shift to full-on totalitarian tactics to crush their perceived opponents. We’ve really only started to see that in this country; France is a little further down the road. Now, one reason the socialists are doing this is to put the coming, more conservative government (how conservative will be decided at the polls – I hope it is National Front) in a political bind, requiring them to potentially fracture their own coalition to amend an egregious affront against a portion of it. But overall, this is definitely the direction all leftist movements worldwide are heading towards, with a more and more open disdain for traditional morality and the religion that inspired it:
France’s socialist government is attempting to crack down on pro-life activists by criminalizing online advocacy at odds with the nation’s abortion regime.
On Thursday, the French National Assembly passed a bill that makes it a crime to post information online that challenges abortion. Pro-life activists who continue to operate online face up to two years in prison and a fine of more than $30,000.[This is truly an extreme measure. France has laws enshrining “freedom of speech” as a fundamental right, too. Don’t look for the Constitution to protect you or your speech. We’re going to have to fight for it.] The bill is an expansion of a 1993 law that penalized giving out “false information” or physically blocking those seeking abortion from entering clinics. The bill passed by French lawmakers will punish web operators who post material considered “deliberately misleading, intimidating and/or exerting psychological or moral pressure.”
The French legislation follows a controversy that erupted after the French government blocked an advertisement featuring smiling children with Down syndrome because it could dredge up feelings of guilt from woman who decided to abort babies diagnosed with the genetic condition in-utero. [How much more revealing can you be?!? Oh, we don’t want women who wantonly murder their babies, often for the most prurient reasons, to ever feel a shred of guilt or self-doubt! That might undermine further abortions! Does anything better testify to the satanic nature of the modern Left, and its use of abortion as a literal demonic sacrifice?] About 96 percent of all babies diagnosed with the condition are aborted in France. The two-minute ad featured testimony from Down syndrome children and adults, as well as their parents explaining that they were capable of living full and happy lives. In November a French court upheld the ban, saying the video would “‘disturb the conscience of women who, in accordance with the law, have made personal life choices.’”
French pro-life group Droit de Naître (Right to Be Born) told the Washington Free Beacon in a statement that the socialist government is trying to ram through pro-abortion legislation because of its dismal prospects in the upcoming French elections……..
……….Pro-life activists in the United States have dealt with similar attacks on their operations. In May, Illinois Democrats passed legislation backed by Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion groups that would force pro-life pregnancy clinics and doctors to provide information or references to abortion clinics, regardless of their beliefs. In August, Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner signed the bill into law despite the fact that no Republican in the House of Representatives or state Senate voted for the bill.
Illinois is the second state to crackdown on pregnancy centers in the past 12 months. In December 2015, California adopted a similar measure. The Los Angeles City Attorney served up the state’s first violations to three crisis pregnancy centers in July. [Are abortion mills required to provide information on non-abortion alternatives. Of course not. That shows these governments aren’t pro-choice, but pro-abort, as in, pro-murder of babies.]
Even with Trump – should nothing untoward happen to somehow derail his installation in office – these same pressures will only continue to rise in the United States. He will be no pro-life hero, and the Left will continue to chip away at our rights wherever and however they can.
Gets ready to fight.

And not just any STD, but one of the worst, most impossible to recover from, and most insidiously contagious: herpes simplex 2.
I don’t think the phrase popularized, if not coined, by Anne Barnhardt, diabolical narcissism, could have a better definition than being so morally lost – heck, amoral – as to be able to convince oneself that not only was one’s catting around not something to be ashamed of, but something to be boldly extolled as a badge of honor, something to be admired and emulated. That is what the culture, the media, and the sicko feminist fringe have convinced millions of women to believe – that selling themselves cheap to the lowest, most momentary bidder is “empowerment,” that murdering babies that come from this activity is “women’s health,” and that what could easily be conceived of as God’s wrath against wanton behavior is just something that happens to people accidentally, like contracting an allergy or some congenital disease. The complete divorce of action and consequence, the constant self-justification and self-exaltation, and the absolute lack of any kind of even remote attachment to moral standards has been a deliberate goal of the cultural-political left for two centuries or more, and it has produced what was always desired: people so divorced from any conception of dignity, let alone their unspeakable worth as unique children of God, that they – rather desperately, one might add – proclaim the evil they have wrought to be good, and the only evil to be to shame or judge them for their hedonistic behavior, that hurts not only themselves but who knows how many others. I would not believe the world in which we live, if I were not confronted with the evidence of its wickedness every day.
And, naturally, this self-described “slut” got a letter of congratulations from Hillary Clinton, during her campaign for the presidency, applauding this young woman for her………for what I have no idea. Because promiscuity is a vital part of the Left’s war on religion, and thus always and everywhere to be praised? Because the evil religion of feminism, which has taught women that giving themselves away to any dude who happens along for a night is empowering, and must always be praised? Because diabolical narcissism demands it?
Anyway, to the article, which is old, but worth your attention (emphasis in original, my comments):
“I’m a slut, and I have herpes. I still am a person who deserves respect,” blogger Ella Dawson tweeted as part of her campaign to remove the “cultural stigma” surrounding sexually transmitted diseases. The Wesleyan grad gained notoriety and celebrity online after writing an article in Women’s Health titled “Why I Love Telling People I Have Herpes.” A follow-up article at Medium defended her position. [But she doesn’t mean respect in the sense that no one should be treated with undue cruelty or as less than anyone else. What she means, in the lexicon of the modern left, is to be never questioned, called to account, or Robespierre forbid, shamed for having engaged in extremely risky and self-destructive behavior and now being afflicted with the almost inevitable natural consequence of such behavior. This becomes obvious as her “logic” unfolds. She wants to be lionized as a sublime and pure princess, while having all the “benefits” of behaving like a slattern – the constant feminist double standard]
Some — like Hillary Clinton — praised Dawson for being “brave and insightful,” while others condemned her for being “stupid.”……
………Hillary Clinton certainly agrees with House. She even sent Dawson a thank you note praising her for speaking out against the “stigma” and for standing up to her critics. [I continue to thank God that, no matter what Donald Trump may be, Hillary Clinton will never be president. Thank you, Lord]
Dawson was thrilled to receive the letter, of course, because it elevated, at least in the minds of some, her campaign to make contracting oozing sores on your genitalia “cool.”
In other words, and like other “sex-positive” feminists and liberals who want to legitimize every social deviancy while stigmatizing anyone who disagrees with them, the 24-year-old Dawson is using social media platforms and a hashtag campaign (#ShoutYourStatus) to justify her behavior and to ease her feelings of guilt. [As you will see, however, Dawson’s end was perfectly predictable, and was, in fact, made virtually inevitable by the flawed ideology she holds. Who listens to a 24 year old anyway?!? I at least had the decency to wait till my mid-30s to afflict the world with my opinions]
Instead of simply making the common-sense case for respecting people who are hurting and not stigmatizing them because they made a mistake — you know, the Golden Rule — Dawson goes much further.
She denies the moral context of how an STD is contracted. She refuses to take responsibility for her bad behavior. She perpetuates misinformation about the seriousness of the disease.
And, she plays the victim. Isn’t feminism glorious?
I wasn’t the sort of person STDs happened to. I was a Planned Parenthood volunteer, a sexuality studies major, and everyone’s go-to friend when they had questions about losing their virginity. How could I have caught something when I had always been so careful? [As I said, her ideology almost guaranteed this outcome, indoctrinated in the baby-murdering sex cult of Planned Murderhood for who knows how long. She has been steeped in demonic lies regarding the gift of sexuality, only to be made use of within the confines of sacramental marriage, for years. She even worked at the whore of Babylon itself, Planned Butcherhood. That she has had numerous partners, and eventually contracted an STD, is entirely predictable, based on her embrace of the errors preached by Margaret Sanger’s satanic spawn. But she is so lost in this ideology, and, one fears, her sins, she still, even when afflicted with a cursed, incurable disease, refuses to question her assumptions and the ideology she has been very carefully brainwashed to fervently accept and even proselytize for.]
First of all, being a feminist isn’t a full-body condom. Second, there is no such thing as 100-percent certified safe sex when you’re doing it with strangers or just having casual sex with multiple partners………
……….Dawson also, nonsensically, believes that contracting herpes has nothing to do with her behavior.
On a logical level. I knew that getting herpes had nothing to do with my actions and didn’t say anything about my character. [You keep telling yourself that, sweetheart.]
On a logical level? Really? She repeats this brilliant display of logic in a TED Talk: [As if I didn’t have a low enough opinion of “Ted talks”]
An STI, especially herpes, is not a reflection of your character or a consequence of a bad decision.
Neither is it, as she writes at Medium, “a consequence of personal choices.”
Sorry to break this to you, but an STD is the direct result of a personal choice. And if you’re a slut — as she claims — that is, by definition, a reflection of your character.
Fact: if she had never had casual sex, she would have never contracted genital herpes. [And this is where we see the ultimate evil that is diabolical narcissism revealed. This woman – and she is far from alone – has turned logic, reason, and even decency on its head in her constant attempts at self-justification. There is hardly anything that could be MORE a consequence of one’s actions that contracting an STD, unless one happened to be a spouse to a partner who was adulterating and contracted it through them. Contracting an STD may involve bad luck, it may involve incredible naivete, but it always – in the practical sense – involves promiscuity, that is, deliberate sex outside marriage for pleasure’s sake alone. I have had some female commenters in the past who tried to argue that there is “good” and “bad” feminism, but that’s bullocks. THIS WOMAN’S FAILED LINE OF THINKING IS AN EXACT REPRODUCTION OF THE IDEOLOGY AT THE HEART OF FEMINISM!!]
Instead of taking responsibility for her own bad choices, Dawson wants to throw logic — and morality — to the wind and justify her behavior by recasting the entire narrative about STDs into something positive: It’s just something that magically happens to you. You’re a passive victim, and there’s nothing you could have done to stop it. So you’re not guilty of anything. And most of all, you don’t have to feel ashamed. [Do you think this woman is driven by guilt, perhaps on some fundamental level? Or is it something else?]
This might come as a shock to Dawson and other moral relativists, but shame isn’t always a bad thing.
The personal shame you feel when you’ve done something wrong is healthy, because it leads you (or should) to conviction that will help you change your behavior. [But when you’ve killed God in the minds of millions, and carefully indoctrinated them to believe that this life is the only one they’ll ever have and so they better get in all the possible pleasure they can, because after this there’s nothing, such reasoning is generally lost on them in their headlong pursuit of pleasure]
……..She goes so far as to sayherpes is “harmless,” and that’s dangerous misinformation.
In an interview with Salon, Dawson said the disease has actually made her sex life better:
Herpes is such a great way to weed out jerks. It’s like the metal detector of douchebags because if somebody is scared of something so harmless, they’re just not worth your time. I have a really high bar for the people I date. [I’m sorry my dear, but you can’t have both a “high bar” and be a self-described slut. Not sure what the idiot college was where you majored in bedding losers, but you need some remedial English and logic] Most people have risen to it amazingly. That’s not to say I’ve only had committed relationships; I’ve had casual sex since getting diagnosed, it’s just always with the conversation of: This is a reality, how do we want to handle this? Do you want to use condoms? What are you most comfortable with? What makes sense for you? [I am willing to bet a substantial sum she has engaged in casual sex without that conversation.]
Herpes is not harmless.
According to the Mayo Clinic, genital herpes is highly contagious with many health risks, including brain damage, blindness or death in a newborn, bladder problems requiring a catheter, meningitis, rectal inflammation, damage to the nervous system, and an increased risk of “transmitting or contracting other STDs.” [We’ve fallen so far, this even needs to be said? That says everything.]
And there’s always a risk of contracting it if you have sex with someone who has the disease, even if they’re not experiencing a breakout.
So if you’re a guy who doesn’t want to risk, say, brain damage? Dawson thinks you’re a jerk. A douchebag.
If you want to remain healthy and not get painful pustules on your lower regions? Dawson says you’re a terrible human being.
I’m sure it does make her feel bad when someone doesn’t want to have sex with her because he’s afraid of getting herpes — but that’s not stigma. If Dawson would take responsibility for her own actions and stop playing the victim, she might understand that, and respect that other people’s decisions can’t cater to her feelings.
If anyone is being a douchebag when it comes to STDs, it’s Dawson.
Indeed. A douchebag that is almost guaranteed to be a divorcee, and highly likely a multiple-divorcee, should she ever decide to marry. The data is incontrovertible on that score. Women who have a high number of lifetime partners are a statistical lock to divorce. Barring, I suppose, a true conversion, but since she worships at the altar of Moloch/Planned Parenthood, that would require a substantial miracle.
Whether it’s shame or not that serves as motivation, this entire line of thinking is just reeks of the victimhood mentality that has apparently gone from small segments of the population to infecting most of an entire generation. But the only person this particular “victim” has to blame, is herself, and that’s the one realization diabolical narcissism absolutely prevents.
Of course, she wouldn’t have to make such a hideous public spectacle of herself, and her shame, driving away any man of quality permanently, if she would find that salve her conscience needs through Jesus Christ. He is the only One that can take away the pain of our past sins – which we all have, some, fortunately, not quite so spectacularly public – not this further descent into endless rationalization and self-justification which this poor creature is demonstrating, showing absolutely no ability to learn from her past mistakes. The shame of it is, in refusing the Grace of Jesus Christ, freely offered, she is damning herself to a lifetime of endless pain and self-induced suffering, no matter how many brave words she uses to try to talk herself off the ledge.
It’s not the sins that damn the diabolical narcissist. It’s the refusal to countenance that they have sinned, that they must repent, and experience conversion in trying to live a life of virtue in concert with the Truth Christ has revealed to us all. We see in the above the tragedy of a soul who manifestly refuses to acknowledge she is capable of grievously sinning, and so continues in that hellish form of living. Her Cure awaits her, patiently, infinitely patiently, but pride prevents her from seeing how easy it is to admit to sin and seek forgiveness.
Poor lost soul. One of so very many. She needs many prayers. She, and those she afflicts with her lies and false propaganda.

That’s what this report from Rorate sounds like. A new group with a more than slightly Orwellian name (and redolent of the personalism/cult of personality that has been distorting Catholicism for over a century) – the Observatory for the Implementation of the Church Reform of Pope Francis (OARCPF) – has sent out letters to Catholic professors at pontifically-recognized colleges around the world, telling them they will be judged as to whether or not they “teach” Amoris Laetitia according to Francis’ intent, which means, allowing adulterers and fornicators to receive the Blessed Sacrament without contrition or confession. This sounds disturbingly me like an inquisition being stood up along progressive lines, forcing the promulgation of opinions – which many view as heresies – contrary to the direct will of Jesus Christ and as revealed throughout Sacred Scripture by both Our Lord and St. Paul.
A bit of explanatory text from Rorate, and then a copy of the letter which has been sent to Roman institutions with threatening tone:
You will not believe the ridiculousness of it all, but Bergoglioland has finally reached full Banana Republic status. Pope Francis, the Anastasio Somoza of Adultery, the Papa Doc of Sinful Cohabitation, has under him now a Secret “Police”, the Osservatorio per l’Attuazione della Riforma della Chiesa di Papa Francesco (OARCPF – Observatory for the Implementation of the Church Reform of Pope Francis) sending out e-mail letters of official tone to professors in Roman institutions demanding them to teach Amoris Laetitia according to the mind of the Pope (that is, Holy Communion to public adulterers and fornicators) — or (the threat is obviously implied) to face expulsion………
……….Magister transcribes the letter received by faculty in the Pontifical Institute John Paul II for Studies on Marriage and the Family (linked to the Lateran University). The threats contained in it are not hollow, because Francis himself intervened earlier this year to completely subject the board of the Institute to HIS new view of marriage (as opposed to Jesus Christ’s and John Paul II’s), putting strong henchmen in their place. Men who would not mind following orders, even if absurd.
The text of the communique, with my emphasis and comments:
Subject: Monitoring of studies and teaching in the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family
Dear Mr/Ms Professor
Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family
Pontifical Lateran University
As has already happened and is happening for other pastoral, academic, and cultural Catholic institutions, our Observatory for the Implementation of the Church Reform of Pope Francis (OARCPF) – an initiative of a group of Catholuc lay people in support of the pontificate of Pope Francis – has begun in the current academic year the monitoring of the contents of publications of faculty and the teachings imparted [in class] in the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in order to make clear the adaptations or eventual disagreements regarding the address made by Pope Francis on the occasion of the opening of the new academic year of your Institute (Sala Clementina, October 28, 2016), in which you were called “to support the necessary opening of the intelligence of the faith in the service of the pastoral solicitude of the Successor of Peter.” [We are truly living through unprecedented times. There may have been disastrous popes, even popes that held personal errors, but never has a pontiff not only held personal errors but tried to inflict them on the entire Church as a substitute for the Truth, as some kind of benign and holy reform! Never in modern history have multiple cardinals submitted dubia to the reigning pontiff demanding he clarify his doctrinal errors in light of Tradition/Catholic belief. Incredibly, and contrary to all precedent, Francis has ignored this request for clarification/correction. It’s been 40 years since large numbers of Catholic intellectuals have risen up in opposition – some privately, others publicly – against the destructive “reforms” being foisted upon the Church by the Bishop of Rome. I would wager that never in history has a pope more publicly challenged, undermined, and even directly attacked the Sacred Deposit of faith. Unbelievable.]
In particular, the contents of published works and the imparted classes will be taken into consideration in reference to what is expressed in the apostolic Exhortation “Amoris laetitia”, according to the image “of the Church that is, not of a Church thought in one’s own image and likeness,” orienting research and teaching not anymore towards “a too abstract theological ideal of matrimony, almost artificially built, far from the concrete situation and from the effective possibilities of families as they are” (Pope Francis, mentioned address, October 28, 2016). [TFrancis has declared repeatedly, both directly and by inference, that Grace is not all-powerful, that “concrete situations” and “effective possibilities” overwhelm individuals and make them powerless to act – “powerless” to stop sinning. This is a heresy in and of itself, that God does not provide souls with all the tools they need to avoid sin, especially mortal sins like fornication and adultery. This is a totally toxic and endlessly destructive notion, revealing the schizophrenia that results from trying to marry Catholicism with leftism. The destruction this ideology will wreak is unimaginable, and yet this man may remain in office for years more, for reasons known only to God]
To this end, we will make use of the analytical and critical reading of the studies published by the faculty, of the theses of graduation and doctorate approved by the Institute, of the syllabus of classes of of their bibliographies, as well as interviews of students made after classes, in the square in front of the Lateran University. [Incredible. Doctrine turned on its head. Doctrinal conformity will be enforced, but along lines hostile to the constant belief and practice of the Faith. We see yet again that liberality of thought and “freedom of inquiry” are nothing but tools used by modernist-progressives to gain power – once they seize it, they squash dissent]
Certain that we are doing a useful task to improve the service that you perform with dedication to the Church and to the Holy Father, we keep you up to date on the results of our observational study.

Rorate opines at the end this intervention may only be directed at the Pontifical JPII Institute or Roman institutes. Perhaps. We shall see if this effort broadens. I would tend to imagine it will.
Either that, or this JPII institute for marriage and the family has been singled out as a likely locus of resistance towards Francis’ dubious doctrinal assertions and thus merits special intervention, a la the Franciscans of the Immaculate. One must conclude Francis considered them a unique threat to his modernist agenda, one to be taken out early, in spite of the bad PR such draconian action generated.

What happens when the left seizes all the levers power? Supposedly sacrosanct rights like free speech, not “given” by the Constitution but only recognized there as inalienable because they come from God, suddenly go out the window. California, which over the past 15-20 years has seen a shift from a fairly divided conservative/liberal state to an overwhelmingly leftist one, has declared free speech to be illegal, if it happens to embarrass an important member of the Leftist coalition. In fact, Planned Barrenhood may well be the most important member, the lynch pin that holds the entire sexular pagan ethos together by permitting their hedonist lifestyle through destruction of “unfortunate accidents.” To embarrass Banned Parenthood now through expose videos is a felony offense in the idiot state:
In signing a bill that criminalizes the distribution of a “confidential” video of a “health-care provider,” Gov. Jerry Brown has at least dispensed with the notion that California’s Democratic leadership cares at all about free-speech rights. The new law, which could lead to jail time for violators, is the latest troubling example of how tenuous America’s political rights may be when one political party controls virtually every apparatus of power. [They won’t be tenuous. They’ll be non-existent]
Assembly Bill 1671 is a direct response to an activist group that last year released disturbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood officials who were, according to a July 2015 report in the Washington Post, “discussing in graphic detail how to abort a fetus to preserve its organs for medical research — as well as the costs associated with sharing that tissue with scientists.” [No, how to make a profit on the satanic practice]
Planned Parenthood’s defenders claim the video was “doctored” and deny any illegal profit-seeking, but it’s clear why abortion’s defenders would like to put the kibosh on video recordings that discuss this gruesome business in anything but euphemistic terms. [They were not “doctored,” or edited, in any significant way. All the core claims of CMP were more than amply proven by video after video after video]
…..After the video’s release, California Attorney General Kamala Harris, our likely next U.S. senator, rebuked Republican legislators’ calls to look into Planned Parenthood’s practices. However, she quickly launched an investigation of the Center for Medical Progress to see if the pro-life activists broke any laws in their recordings, after Democratic members of Congress urged her to do so. [This is exactly the kind of behavior one expects in a thugocracy or one party state. Radically different standards of treatment for different people, depending on whether they are perceived allies or enemies. However, the Left never fails to learn that the circle always shrinks, and those on the “inside” today invariably find themselves on the outs tomorrow]
Using a Public Records Act request, the Washington Times recently found that “Officials from… Harris’ office and Planned Parenthood collaborated to draft legislation targeting the pro-life activist whose undercover videos showed officials for the nation’s largest abortion provider discussing the sale of fetal body parts.”…….[Note how Planned Barrenhood also coordinated with the Houston DA’s office to get trumped up charges filed by a corrupt or incompetent grand jury.]
The resulting law was so awful it warranted opposition from the
“pro-choice” [radically pro-abort] American Civil Liberties Union and the Los Angeles Times’ liberal-leaning editorial board. The latter noted it is already illegal to record people without permission, but this bill “ups the ante by making it illegal for the eavesdropper to disclose or distribute… what that person heard or recorded, if the victim is any type of healthcare provider.” That would outlaw “not just sensitive details about patients, but also private conversations about fees and billing practices, drug marketers, or plans for the weekend. Why a healthcare provider merits special protection… is mystifying.”………
………..California’s governor and legislators clearly want to stop embarrassing reporting on a taxpayer-supported organization that provides “services” that remain a contentious matter of political debate. It’s shocking, actually, given the First Amendment is about protecting political speech. Such efforts have become increasingly common. That’s especially true when it comes to abortion, which at the current rate may be the last “constitutional” right left in California. [Indeed. The actual enumerated rights – which again, only recognizes what each person has from God as free gift and has nothing to do with governmental benefice – are being steadily eroded into nothingness, which made-up rights like abortion are viewed as completely sacrosanct]
Last week, the federal 9th Circuit Court of Appeal upheld Assembly Bill 775. Gov. Brown signed the so-called “Reproductive FACT Act” last year. It forces private pro-life counseling centers that help pregnant women carry their unborn children to term to also provide information on how to obtain an abortion. Organizations that exist primarily to help stop abortions now have to provide information that goes against their core principles. [And if Hillary wins, we can be sure this ruling will be upheld. This is what a satanic country looks like]
There’s a lot more at the link. California is making it very plain they have no desire for anyone with unpopular opinions living in that state. It is amazing how far California has fallen from a constested left-right state in the early 90s to an impregnable bastion of hyper-aggressive leftism today. And, it plainly shows how this nation will very rapidly devolve should the demonrats gain a stranglehold on power at the federal level, which they very nearly will have with a Hillary win (because even if the Repubnik’s keep the Congress, they have shown themselves to be utterly ineffectual in opposition. Heck, most of the time, the happily go along with the leftist agenda.
I think commenter PF was right……..we may be lucky to turn out as well as Zimbabwe.

Yes, the cases really into the quadrillions.
Two episodes reveal the insane hatred being directed at young men on today’s college campuses. One is so filthy I can scarcely mention it. The first is really the more terrifying, however, because it is so insidious – young men must now, on many college campuses, and as the first order of business, be indoctrinated in an ideology that teaches them to loath themselves for nothing more than an accident of birth, the kind of thing the evil left once lectured us was possibly the worst thing in the universe to do to someone. Now colleges are literally returning to segregated facilities on campus – can you guess who will get the separate but unequal facilities in this new regime?
But regarding males, the overwhelming message received is – better be trans, queer, or femboi, because we have no room for masculinity on campus:
Gettysburg College freshman James Goodman began his first moments of higher education by being lectured by campus leaders about “toxic masculinity,” he tells The College Fix in an interview.
Students who “identify as male” were shown a docudrama film about masculinity. The film, titled “The Mask You Live In,” was part of the lessons warning students that the notion of masculinity comes with harmful side effects, he said.
According to the trailer of the film, it teaches that the “three most destructive words” a boy can hear growing up is “be a man.” Experts quoted therein also suggest that violent outbursts are prompted by masculinity pressures because “respect is linked to violence.”……
…….Psychiatrist Dr. James Gilligan added “whether it’s homicidal violence or suicidal violence, people resort to such desperate behavior only when they are feeling shame or humiliated, or feel they would be if they didn’t prove that they were real men.” [Yeah, that woman who shot the man trying to bust into her house was just feeling so much shame and humiliation, that’s the reason she resorted to “homicidal violence.” Only an academic could be this stupid]
Next followed humiliating, childish exercises dedicated to reinforcing the message of inequality received:
……..The next activity asked the male students to put green, yellow or red dot stickers on pictures of various popular culture images. The green dot was intended to symbolize something good and acceptable, yellow was more moderate, and red as completely inappropriate and unacceptable behavior………
………“The entire movie and lesson made it seem like masculinity was an unacceptable human trait. That it’s something males should avoid. It was completely pointless. It did nothing to help anyone. I got absolutely nothing out of the experience, other than a headache,” Goodman said to The College Fix. [Perhaps you were lucky. But in this age where so few kids have a strong enough upbringing and the self-confidence that goes with it, how many will be led into self-hatred by this kind of brainwashing?]
The second example is as stultifying as it is prurient. Stupid campus feminists at stupid Northwestern University created a stupid, 20 ft tall likeness of the female sexual organ and held some demonstration. I edit a lot of the below for content, I include no link because it would be irresponsible to do so:
Hundreds of students marched through a 20-foot-tall inflatable [simulacrum of the female organ] at The Arch on Friday afternoon following the unveiling of [redacted]. [It was a really bad simulacrum. Most had no idea what it was]
Student organizers hung the purple [simulacrum of the female organ] from The Arch for students and community members to interact with. Spectators watched, took photos with and walked through the open [simulacrum of the female organ], which hung on display for more than two hours.
Organizers said they wanted students to form their own interpretations of the piece and declined further comment on [this demonstration of a toddler’s fascination with its body parts].
For many students, [this demonstration of a toddler’s fascination with its body parts] served as a statement about the perception of [simulacrum of the female organ] in society.
“[Female organs] carry a lot of shame in our society,” Weinberg senior Ary Hansen said. “It’s a statement about equality and about [female organ] pride.”
I literally can’t quote anymore. This is bad enough.
I’m so glad that people are spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to have their 18 year old children turned into potty mouthed pre-schoolers. When will this, the major vehicle for the advance of the sexular pagan epidemic in our culture, be destroyed and re-founded along classical lines.
I shan’t hold my breath.
