Church, Doctor, and Fucking: 5909 "I decided that never again would there be a pregnant woman in Auschwitz." patron-saint-of-smart-asses: everybody-look-right: washingtonstateconservative: ctrlgeek: webbgirl34: thebigsisteryouneveraskedfor: Gisella Perl was forced to work as a doctor in Auschwitz concentration camp during the holocaust. She was ordered to report ever pregnant women do the physician Dr. Josef Mengele, who would then use the women for cruel experiments (e.g. vivisections) before killing them. She saved hundreds of women by performing abortions on them before their pregnancy was discovered, without having access to basic medical supplies. She became known as the “Angel of Auschwitz”. After being rescued from Bergen-Belsen concentration camp she tried to commit suicide, but survived, recovered and kept working as a gynecologist, delivering more than 3000 babies. I want to nail this to the forehead of every anti-abortionist who uses the word “Holocaust” when talking about legal abortions. Yeah… she became a gynecologist and was extremely pro-life after she got out of the camps. In an interview with Nadine Brozan for the New York Times in 1982, Dr. Perl recalled her initial experiences with Dr. Mengele’s “cure” for pregnancy in Auschwitz. ”Dr. Mengele told me that it was my duty to report every pregnant woman to him,” Dr. Perl said. ”He said that they would go to another camp for better nutrition, even for milk. So women began to run directly to him, telling him, ‘I am pregnant.’ I learned that they were all taken to the research block to be used as guinea pigs, and then two lives would be thrown into the crematorium. I decided that never again would there be a pregnant woman in Auschwitz.” Let’s analyze the situation: mother and child alike were both going to be killed anyway if the pregnancy was discovered. Leaving wasn’t an option. Freedom was nonexistent, and the perspectives of all involved were colored by living in hell on earth.   After the war, she dedicated her life to Holocaust remembrance, infertility treatment, and delivering babies – not destroying them. The New York Times quotes her as saying, “No one will ever know what it meant to me to destroy those babies, but if I had not done it, both mother and child would have been cruelly murdered.” Perl never pretended they weren’t babies, that their lives didn’t matter, or that their deaths weren’t cruel. Holy crap. I literally got a ton of shit a few months ago for saying that maybe, just maybe, Perl’s actions don’t justify abortion as a whole. Well, it goes to show that I should’ve done more research, to find out  that Perl herself doesn’t pretend that was she did was right, or that it justifies abortion now. There was another woman, a midwife, who was devout Catholic and helped to care for pregnant women and hide the babies, and continued her work in midwifery after the war. Last I heard she was in the canonization process in the Catholic Church. Fucking THANK YOU I’m so tired of pro-choicers using her as a “gotcha”. She had to do a terrible thing in a terrible circumstance. That has literally no relation to first world abortion legislation today.

Kavanaugh U.S. NEWS KAVANAUGH'S TESTIMONY Sept 27 | Judge Brett Kavanaugh completec his testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee following Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's hearing. Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, completed his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, following the testimony of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. In Kavanaugh’s opening statement, he assured that he would not be intimidated. Kavanaugh said: - "You may defeat me in the final vote, but I will not quit. I have never sexually assaulted anyone." ____ When Kavanaugh was asked by Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) why he did not ask the FBI to investigate, the Supreme Court nominee said: - "The FBI doesn’t reach a conclusion. It’s an outrage that I was not allowed to come [before the committee] and immediately defend my name." ___ When asked about his history with drinking, specifically in high school and college, Kavanaugh repeatedly stated he never drank to the extent of “blacking out.” ___ Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said that Kavanaugh is as much of a victim as Dr. Blasey Ford, describing the hearing as “the most unethical sham since I’ve been in politics." ___ Brett Kavanaugh stated that he has not taken a polygraph test yet, but will if asked. ___ Minutes after the hearing ended, President Trump tweeted: - “Judge Kavanaugh showed America exactly why I nominated him. His testimony was powerful, honest, and riveting. Democrats’ search and destroy strategy is disgraceful and this process has been a total sham and effort to delay, obstruct, and resist.

Apple, Bilbo, and Fall: Lexi Alexander @Lexiale:x I'm interrupting my break for one tweet only, so take a screenshot: I created the shitty men in media list. You don't need to doxx me, just head to my Instagram account, it's easy to find out where I hang out if you want to say hi. 1/10/18, 5:09 PM 282 Retweets 1,345 Likes iconuk01: fuckyeahwomenfilmdirectors: fuckyeahwomenfilmdirectors: Director Lexi Alexander outs herself as Shitty Men In Media List Creator The list first began circulating last fall not long after the New York Times published its exposé on Harvey Weinstein on October 5, the Shitty Men in Media list spotlighted men in Big Apple circles. Naming names, allegations on the list went from “inappropriate communication” to rape. In a tone of transparency, the list also noted that some of the details it contained were “rumors” and should be taken as such. The announcement came after revelations that writer Katie Roiphe had been researching the originator of the list for a piece planned for Harper’s March issue. The move was widely criticized with many writers and editors encouraging writers to pull their pieces from Harper’s in order to protest the piece and protect the name of the creator.   UPDATE: Lexi is not the originator of the piece but is one of many women claiming credit in order to protect the true identity of the originator.  The ”No, I’M Spartacus” approach? That’s a bold and risky move, and I offer all respect to the women involved.

Animals, Clock, and England: T-Mobile LTE 6:43 PM 86%( -+ Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki Short version: scientist discovers that killing wolves disrupts wolf pack structure, leading to more livestock deaths, and therefore killing wolves doesn't work. He's since been sent countless death threats and has lost his credibility and reputation. The New York Times·@nytimes Rob Wielgus, one of America's pre-eminent experts on large carnivores, had no idea how unpopular he could get until he began to study wolves. His academic reputation is now in shreds. nyti.ms/2KCLSGA 7/7/18, 1:12 PM View Tweet activity 984 Retweets 1,478 Likes Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h For the record, farmers and hunter:s who know nothing about how the environment works outside the animals they profit from is absolutely nothing new. It's why wolves almost went extinct in the first place. They wanted that "hunter's paradise". 129 247 Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h It was believed that if you got rid of all the predator animals, then the livestock and prey animals could thrive. Turns out instead, the prey animals overpopulate, destroy their environment, and become less healthy overall. Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h This is why Yellowstone brought wolves back, for the record. Even then, people were furious at the notion and tried to stop it. But turns out wolves kept the numbers of the other animals in check, and the environment became healthy again. 3 24 257 Wolf Nanaki @wolfnanaki 5h In spite of this, people still care more about their short term personal profits than the long-term damage of their actions, and still want wolves removed. No wonder the Republicans in this article compare wolves to Democrats. wolfnanaki: So one of my tweets kinda blew up. :v We learnt about this in the biology part of our gcse combined science course (you usually have to take gcse science in england).The basics of it is that predators need prey for food, and prey need predators for population control, meaning if the population of either one drops, the population of the other will have a corresponding reaction. Prey population drops - predator population drops - prey population rises - predator population rises - prey population dropsAnd so on.So, when an outside force (disease, humans) interferes, it interrupts the cycle. Imagine if you saw the inside of a clock and went why are there so many cogs? and just started taking them out. The clock wouldnt work. It is the same with any ecosystem.Now imagine if we were in the place of the wolves. We hunt prey and the cycle goes and everything is fine and balanced, but then someone is like no i want more prey and just kill us. The prey population goes up and this is when our (the predators) population would go up. But were being killed off. So prey just keep going up and up and up and the ecosystem goes all out of wack. Their food sourcr decreases, they starve, they die. But there is no external cause so it just keeps happening. Now there isnt any predators or prey. No ecosystem. Everythings dead. Well done.
