Promised You a Miracle

Thanks to a friend on Facebook, some music for this fine Monday morn:

Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr teams up with Canada’s own Martha Wainwright to remake an ’80s classic for Oxfam. The message for G8 leaders is clear: No more promises, time for action. Time to do what it takes to keep women from dying in childbirth or shortly thereafter.

(And yes, abortion SHOULD be included in that plan. Suck it, Harpo, you fundie panderer.)

    Yes, it’s time that the promises were kept. But, how can these promises be kept when you have some people like the Bishop of Phoenix (what in the Hell has gotten in to Arizona all of a sudden) who excommunicated the nun in charge of a Catholic hospital in the Phoenix area because she approved an abortion to save the life of the mother.
    I have often wondered at the hypocrisy of that position. You say that all life is precious and that no one has the right to choose one life to live over another. Yet you would choose the life of an embryo that would have never lived to viability because the mother would have died before then. Now, who has chosen to commit murder of not one, but 2 lives than could have been saved.
    And where in the Hell is all you pious pontificating when it comes to the death penalty. You pour money (tax free money, I might add) into the coffers of an anti-abortion thug who is going to murder a whole slew of people as governor and/or President and that’s OK, even though all life is precious. I guess George Orwell had it correct, “…all pigs are equal, but some are more equal than others.” If the cloven hoof fits, Bishop, wear it!

    A child murder supporter too? You must be real proud of yourself Sabina.

  3. Well, yes, as a matter of fact I am proud of myself. At least, I know the difference between a blob of cells and a child.
    You, on the other hand…
