Well, now isn’t this just spiffy? According to a story in the Bay Area NBC paper, that’s exactly what this new bill would do. From the article:
“A new state bill in the California State Senate could make social-networking sites like Facebook take down personal information and photos for account users under 18 and require more private settings.
“The bill’s language also states that social-networking sites would have to comply with parental requests to remove information or photos from their children’s pages or accounts. The new bill “would require removal of that information regarding a user under 18 years of age upon request by the user’s parent, within 48 hours upon his or her request.”
How do you square this? California is one of those all-permissive states that prefers kids’ rights over parents, so that’s why this kind of shocked me. Especially considering who introduced the bill, SB 242: Sen. Ellen Corbett (D-San Leandro). But where is the hypocrisy you ask? Somehow it makes sense to let parents edit their kids’ Facebook pages, but let a parent know their daughter is going to get an abortion? Fuggeddaboudit! It’s THEN that kids’ rights trump parents’ rights. What a bunch of hypocrites.
Heartbreaking…just heartbreaking. That’s all I can say. If we continue to consider human life AT ANY stage is worthless, we will continue to devalue our own humanity.
Former Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson, appeared on the Huckabee show this weekend to talk about her transformation from a pro-choice advocate to a pro-life advocate. It all started when she first was called in to assist on an abortion, and she saw on the ultrasound the actual crumbling of an innocent life. She has turned that experience into her new quest to expose what abortion REALLY is; the extermination of a living being.
God bless you, Abby…thank you for your voice and experience. May God continue to bless you and those you seek to protect.
First up, we have Joe Lieberman on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, fielding a question about the Healthcare Reform Act that passed the House last night. Does Joe like the public option? Not so much.
Next, on ABC’s “This Week,” George had both party leaders on, Tim Kaine and Michael Steele, to discuss various issues facing the country. Healthcare, the gubernatorial votes last Tuesday, the 2010 election, among a host of other things. Watch for the moment Kaine grabs Steele’s wrist, and Steele has to pull it off. This was the equivalent of verbal fisticuffs. I’m sure they like each other, but they are definitely at political war with each other.
Next, on the This Week roundtable this weekend, it was quite entertaining. The democrats would do well to listen to Dr. Luntz on his polling. Also note how Donna Brazile said the addition of denying federal funding for abortions to the healthcare bill that passed the house last night equates (to her) the straight-out “outlawing” of abortions. Excuse me? Since when did federal funding equate with downright outlawing of anything?
On The View yesterday, abortion came up as a topic. As most of you know, Sherri & Elisabeth are both people of faith. Joy & Barbara are just heathens.
The topic came up because a recent director of a Planned Parenthood clinic, Abby Johnson, changed her beliefs and quit after seeing the actual abortion on the ultrasound. Not surprising, Joy said a lot of people think abortion is no big deal, but she has an obvious problem with doctors PROFITING from it. She actually called that profit “immoral.” Excuse me? Where does your morality stop and where does it begin, Joyless? You are too stupid to take seriously, and Barbara is no better. Barbara says there is an “army of people who believe in right-to-life”…as if it is something negative. WTF?
And I say good on you, Sherri, for telling YOUR story about how the Planned Parenthood clinic you went to when you were young, and they only seemed to push you toward having the abortion.
This whole event reminds me of the speech Obama made when he said he wouldn’t want his daughters “punished with a baby.” Good grief, man…have you no moral compass?
I don’t know if this will make it past the LL censors, (it didn’t, but it’s still embedded as a video here) but I have to post this because Peter Singer has close ties to the Obama administration, and his views along with Noam Chomsky’s are distressing at best; diabolical at worst.
I’ll let you watch and be the judge whether or not it’s okay to contemplate terminating the life of a 3-year-old, or euthanizing a person who’s elderly. Quite shocking indeed.
