YAY! We can still kill babies in OK!

That was close.

HB 1326, aka ‘Politicians against baby murder and for hot pancakes’ was vetoed by Gov. Henry last night. This morning the House voted to override the veto 68-26… But the override only got 26 votes in the Senate. They needed 32.

So us evil Nazi scientists can officially “KILL TEH BAAAAABBYS!” in OK, and I wont be getting a misdemeanor for infanticide this year.

*sad*

However the Christbots in OK are now having seizures, which has cheered me up immensely.


Lisa Billy is concerned that scientists are now going to roam dark alleys, preying on ‘poor minority women’ to get their eggs for money.

Ignoring the fact she just accused the scientific community of being racist predators, she really thinks this is how scientists think:

1. Get eggs from poor women.
2. Fertilize said eggs.
3. Kill resulting babby.
4. ???
5. PROFIT!!!!

Id also just like to note how Mz Billy is just certain scientists will prey on minority women… minority women like HER! Why, shes a Native American! Yeah, white, brown hair, brown eyes… Boy, I bet she has to deal with a LOT of racism in her every day life! And you can tell she is really in touch with her Native American ancestors by the way she worships the god of the people who slaughtered her ancestors. *HIGH-FIVE* Mz Billy! I bet your ancestors would be real proud of you.

Randy Brogdon is simply IRATE at how Gov. Henry gained the votes he needed in the Senate: LOBBYING!

*gasp*

But you didnt hear who did the lobbying yet! You know who did it? Businessmen/women!!

**GASP**

He says the veto is an affront to the pro-life movement, and was sustained partly because of lobbying efforts by both the Tulsa and Oklahoma City Chambers of Commerce.

“I think there are plenty of opportunities for the chamber to bring businesses to Oklahoma that does not involve taking innocent human life,” said Republican Senator Randy Brogdon of Owasso.

“And then, you have the business chamber of commerce come in and say I don’t care if it’s legal, can me make any money? I just think it’s a ludicrous position and I was astounded,” said Ray Thomas of TPI Billing.

So once again we get that amazing killing babies–>PROFIT! logic, coupled with Republicans bitching about businesses and the free market.

WTF??

So, businesses doing things like dumping chemicals into our air and water is fine. Letting ‘the market’ regulate heath care standards is fine. The current economic crisis is fine.

But the Tulsa and OKC chamber of commerce being irritated at the ‘DONT KEEEL BABBYS’ bill after they have hung a lot of their $$$ hopes on the success of OK universities, OMRF, Research Park, etc… HOW DARE A BUSINESS PERSON SICK THEIR NOSE IN SUCH MATTERS!!

Assholes. Hypocritical, self-righteous, ignorant assholes.

    When I’m dictator of the universe, the first thing I’m gonna do is legalize fetal farming for recreational abortion. And any pro-lifer will be forced to watch.

    I just made myself come.

    At the end of the clip, Lisa Billy says “The embryos that are currently frozen are simply not enough for research right now.” So which is it, Ms. Billy? Are more embryos for research a good thing or a bad thing?

    There are lots natives (in Canada at least, not sure about the States) who are christian. We actually had some Inuit trying to have Christian style creationism taught in their schools. To me that is just crazy, especially when there are so many better creation myths from aboriginal traditions. Creation rests on the backs of turtles – hello! – how cool is that? Anyway I guess the missionaries and residential schools were effective at indoctrination, if not at assimilation.

    If they’re all really so concerned about those frozen embryos, they should, to a man, be in line to be implanted with them.

    I could really use that right now–I’ve got a physics test in a little bit. Popping some zygotes to help me understand some of this stuff would be okay with me.

    The battle is far from over. According to Oklahoma Senate rules, the Senate Leader (Republican; voted for ban) can reinitiate a veto override AS MANY TIMES as they need to until the end of the legislative period in May of next year. Since they were 6 Senators short, I bet you they will keep trying until they get the magic number. I wouldn’t be surprised they’ll be sneaky and try it when a lot of Democrat senators are out of town or after intense pressure on their Republican peers.

    Hang on.

    Are you saying you *don’t* flit through the shadows of the night, harvesting eggs from the defenceless, growing them up as minions in your Legion of Terror then sending them off to die in pointless though hopefully amusing ways?

    Here at the Fortress of Despair that is our primary mission!

    Where’s the evidence for therapeutic applications from embryonic stem cell research, as opposed to the adult pluripotential stem cells from which funding is allegedly being partially diverted?

    Incidentally the vast majority of abortions in the clinic near us in London are in poor black women, and most paid kidney donors in countries where there is black market transplanation are poor and deprived, it wouldn’t surprise me if this representative is quite accurate.

    Indeed it was a preeminent aim of many of the early eugenicists to implement racist abortion policies, based of course usually on evolutionary assumptions. For different reasons do you wish to be their unwitting heirs?

    cprs, sorry I don’t have the link (at work) but “Science Friday” just had a story about a possible treatment for paralyses due to trauma i.e. broken neck derived from embryonic stem cells. Here is the kicker it is not just an idea, it is going to safety (phase one) trials this summer. Stick that in your pipe.

    You fucking Nazis.

    Also note the fine hypocrisy of a Creationist concern-trolling and begging for ‘civility’, while calling all scientists racist Nazis. lol. Im getting bored with cprs, and hes not even a month old yet.

    The jury’s out on macular degeneration and spinal injury – we shall see.
    Richard Dawkins would also take exception to being called a Nazi, as would all here I trust, but he’s expressed a firm interest in eugenics. If critical comments aimed at provoking self examination are trolling, then most innovators have been trolls.
    The distinction matters, as do many others that it may be convenient, but unwise to blur.

    “If critical comments aimed at provoking self examination are trolling, then most innovators have been trolls.”

    …and yet you’re the one here claiming that we should prevent potential innovations in embryonic stem cell research.

    @cprs–So when was the last time you put thorns under a pot? If you did, why? Did you light them afire or just put them there? (thorns? why thorns?)

    Can you expand the analogy of burning fuel to prepare food in terms of what instructions to accept of the oft re-released book of the death worshiping ant-human cult loving and life affirming religion (or sub-set thereof) to which you subscribe in a way that is useful to people who are otherwise distracted or engaged or too busy to give you the time of day?

    You must have missed something concerning how the young learn from the old. Pity. It was common when I was coming up.

    Perhaps you should learn some science. Can you?

    Just one more thing, cprs. You made this statement:

    The jury’s out on macular degeneration and spinal injury – we shall see.

    I will submit to you that the jury is out on everything. Please attend, N.B. and listen up:
    The best that the human mind can do when giving a concise definition of what we know about the universe is spoken in terms of probabilities. There is a high degree of probability that the earth orbits the sun; there is a low probability that we are alive after we are dead.

    It does not matter that you insist on certainties and absolutes. You were most likely taught that way by dear and loving people who just happened to be clueless about anything more complicated than local politics and gossip. Don’t feel bad, it’s very common. But please do understand that lack of knowledge does affect the ability to speak with authority. Personal conviction is Not sufficient to persuade a thinking person.

    Hey! Wanna have some fun? Go buy a book or two by Lewis Thomas. You like nature? You like the mystery of life? Read on.

    I assume you know of Isaac Asimov. He wrote a jillion short essays for most of the magazines of the mid-twentieth century. He wrote about everything from the number of atoms in the cosmos to how we know the structure of hemoglobin.

    Shit, man, how about a few issues of Popular Science from the thirties through the seventies? Ever check such shit out? No? Why not? You comment as though you knew all this established/proposed/attained/not attained stuff (all part of the definition of our common reality) and are qualified to discount it all and substitute stale dreams of dead shepherds and their myriad translators.

    Do yourself a great favor and in so doing favor your fellow humans by learning about things before you commit yourself to eternal pointing and laughing.

    Oh. Grow up, too.
