Reproductive Tyranny FAIL

As everyone knows by now, that sleazy piece of legislative feculence known as “Motion 312” is gone, gone, like the snows of yesteryear.  Or in the contemporary vernacular,

M312 FAIL!


When the deal finally went down on Wednesday afternoon, my final estimate on votes for and agin was just about right.

I predicted about 1/2 the CPC would vote “Yes”, simply because any more would make Harpie, who voted “No”, look bad: the actual vote was 52%. All in all, the slimy monster was defeated by more than 2 -1: a decisive defeat, if not the humiliating, crushing blow of my sadistic, seed-stealing, baby-killing, pants-dropping, man-hating feminazi dreams.  But still, gone.

Gone but not *quite* forgotten, if Twitter’s “#M312” timeline is any indication.

But so what?  The Men Who Stare At Zygotes motion built a lot of momentum, thanks to Woodworth’s moving the vote forward from the original date in June.  Rare is the anti-abortion motion that generates this kind of buzz, and it’s understandable that the fetus fetishists would be desperate to keep it going.

They even had a Companion Motion waiting in the hopper should M312 fail, and predictably and pathetically, tabled it immediately:

MPs may have voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to shut down discussion on Canada’s abortion laws, but another Conservative backbench MP has found a new way to keep the debate alive.

Langley, B.C. MP Mark Warawa introduced a motion Thursday calling on the House of Commons to condemn discrimination against females via sex-selective pregnancy termination.

(“Shut down discussion” — who writes this rotten sludge?)

Anyway, the newest piece of antichoice offal being flogged, Motion 408, is a total non-starter and barely worthy of attention.  It calls for the House to do no more than “condemn” a specific and rare practice, not make changes to Criminal Code definitions that would result in criminalizing abortion.  I almost feel embarrassed for its proponents, so screamingly obvious is the real purpose of Motion 408: keep the M312 momentum going.

My uterus and I say “Thanks for stopping by, but we’re not buying what you’re selling”.

Some people are concerned, as they should be about any state initiative that has anything to do with reproductive rights, but a watchful eye is all that’s needed here.  If Motion 408 is ignored, it will come and go without any affect on womens’ rights, and the Motion 312 hype, already fading, will disintegrate.  Continuing to engage antichoicers over this new motion is exactly what they want.  Until Motion 408 evolves into an existential threat, I say ignore it.  I’d rather watch the fetus fetishists melt down into frustrated dung-puddles as all the M312 buzz melts away with them.

BONUS TRACK:  A Word About “Sex-Selective Abortion”

It’s the Outrage-du-Jour, or maybe just another way to try and slip one past the prochoice goalie; either way, I’m not convinced the practice is widespread enough in Canada to warrant the shrieking that goes on over it.  The notion that it could result in a Canada top-heavy with males is absurd, but the idea of social engineering by the government as a legitimate means of avoiding this unlikely situation is loathesome in the extreme.

I will say that sex selection wouldn’t be my reason for having an abortion, but that’s my personal opinion and irrelevant in the context of anyone’s abortion but my own.  For good or ill, the decision to terminate a pregnancy is the woman’s to make, and hers alone: not mine, yours or the state’s.

Canada’s Docs Rock

The doctors are IN:

Canada’s doctors have sternly rejected what they see as a stealth attempt to recriminalize abortion.

At the general council meeting of the Canadian Medical Association on Wednesday, delegates called on the federal government to reject attempts by a Conservative backbench MP to amend the Criminal Code so that a fetus is defined as a human being.

“This constitutes the criminalization of abortion or any form of contraception,” said Dr. Geneviève Desbiens, a urologist from Valleyfield, Que. […]

The CMA, which represents the country’s 76,000 physicians, interns, residents and medical students, has a policy saying that abortion is an ethically acceptable medical practice as long as the fetus is not viable.

In other words, regulation of the abortion procedure is their job, and they don’t need some government bureaucrat, driven by brainless religious fanatics, telling them how to do it.
Now that everyone seems to be picking their side, at some point I’d love to do a graphic chart showing who’s for and against Motion 312.  It would be very telling to see the line-up of lab-coated scientists on one side and the gaggle of jabbering bible school haircuts on the other.

Whoops (a PSA)

My apologies: I’ve been a Bad Blogger lately, sucked into the shrieking vortex of virulent madness and fetus fetishizing insanity that is the #M312 time line on Twitter (and taken down by various ugly meatspace ailments — flu, sleep disturbances and other unwelcome and unacceptable interruptions).  (But none of it has affected my status as Sovereign of the Run-On Sentence.)

Blogging will resume shortly — as in “today” —  just thought I’d warn anyone who’s still around.  Hahahaha!

Supremes give Linda Gibbons the “L”-sign

And it doesn’t stand for “LINDA”.

Welcome to Loserville, Linda Gibbons — Population: you.  But some of us didn’t need the Supreme Court to tell us that.

For the blissfully unaware, Linda Gibbons is a deranged religious crackpot who, over the years, has made quite a name for herself (I mean another name besides “Loser”) among Canadian fetus fetishists as a Martyr to the Cause. Gibbons’ relentless picketing of Toronto womens’ clinics has earned her a stay in the Graybar Hotel more times than the half-bright old fool could likely even remember, and given her a lock on deification as Our Lady of Perpetual Pestering, St. Linda of the Smited Feti.

Toronto has a bubble zone law, you see, to prevent dingbats like Gibbons (and even worse dingbats like Scott Roeder) from doing their frenzied screeching, praying, humiliating and slut-shaming right on the clinics’ doorsteps.  But Gibbons insists on getting as close to the clinics as humanly possible, the better to facilitate one-on-one slut-shaming.  In Gibbons’ demented eyes, the patients have no right to privacy: “God’s Law”, you know.

It’s the same routine every time: Gibbons parks her doddering ass at the clinic, a court order to cease & desist arrives, Gibbons refuses, cops are called, and she’s carted off to the hoosegow, lock stock and two smoking feti.  There she writhes in the throes of a persecution frenzy for a few months, along with all the other fetus fetishists who regard her as a maligned saint.  When she’s released she goes straight back to the clinic, personifying that old quote about the Definition of Insanity.

Violating the bubble zone law is a civil offense, but as I understand it, when the court order arrives things escalate and the refusal to leave becomes a criminal offense. That is in fact the primary leverage of a court order, and it’s why Gibbons spends so much time in the slam.  At some point Gibbons was wracked by a brainstorm of epic proportions and decided that it wasn’t “right” for a grandmother to be criminally charged.  She took her case, such as it was, to the Supreme Court.

The Supremes were not impressed:

The Supreme Court has ruled against a relentless Toronto anti-abortion crusader who has spent more than nine years over two decades in jail for repeatedly violating a civil order to quit picketing outside abortion clinics.

 Linda Gibbons, 63, who is in jail again, has long maintained she has a right to peaceful protest and that the courts were unfairly pursuing her because of her unpopular views on abortion.

The Supreme Court was asked to rule on a technical matter — whether it is right for the grandmother to be charged criminally for a civil violation.

The top court ruled eight to one that she could, in fact, be charged criminally for disobeying a court order.

Sorry Linda, hundreds of years of legal precedent disagree with your hypothesis that old people should be allowed to get away with anything they want.  If your age is the only defense your lawyer can come up with, you need a new lawyer.

Predictably the hysterical shrieks of “freeeeee speeeech!” have already begun… ironic as they are, coming from the same people who’d dictate what we can watch, read, smoke, who we can marry, and what medical procedures we can have.

Now, I’ve thought long and feverishly about the issue of anti-choice picketing as it impacts on free speech.

Make no mistake, I despise every perverse and twisted notion these people stand for: but at the same time, they have the same right to peaceful protest and free speech as I enjoy, and I wholeheartedly support that right.  I don’t care if it’s Neo-Nazis marching down the street in full fascist regalia — as long as they’re not beating anyone up, I support their right to do so.  On that level, I’m always glad to see the fetushists rapturing out at their goofy Marches for Life, wheeling around in their Fetusmobiles and standing on street corners with gory signs.  The fact that they’re out there means I can be out there counter-protesting if I so choose.  (And besides, a cartoonist couldn’t invent these people — they’re just great material.)

But given the Clinic Staff body count and the fact that clinic patients enjoy some rights too — specifically, the right to privacy — I don’t consider bubble zones to be an infringement on free speech, as the fetus fetishists are so fond of claiming.  The clinics themselves are Private Property, which trumps the right to protest at that location.  Even outside property lines, there are clearly safety issues in allowing these idiots within gunshot range (as Dr.David Gunn would agree if he wasn’t dead).  And yes, demented senior citizens who spend half their lives in prison and the other half muttering and shrieking at clinic patients should be considered a potential danger. It’s not a bridge too far, in my opinion, to imagine the brain-damaged Gibbons being given a .38 and talked into using it.  Bubble Zones are about the patients’ privacy rights, but they’re also about the clinic staff’s Right to Life.  (Ironic, huh?)

What the psychotic anti-choice constituency doesn’t get is that the Free-Speech-Stomping Jackboot of the State isn’t preventing them from protesting: they can indulge themselves in all the Jesus-driven fetus-fury and spittle-flecked slut-shaming they want, from 500 feet away.  The right to free speech doesn’t come with a guaranteed audience at the venue of your choice.

By now, one would imagine that Linda Gibbons’ arms are festooned with jailhouse sleeve tattoos of dead fetus porn.  Not that this, or the bitchslap from the Supremes, will stop her from going straight back to the clinic.  Time to start inking those legs… maybe a tasteful wreath of fetuses around the ankle for starters.

That “WHOOOOOOSH” you hear in the distance

… is the sound of Stephen Harper’s sigh of relief:

Debate on a Conservative MP’s controversial private member’s motion that is widely seen as an attempt to reopen the abortion question has been put off until the fall.

Stephen Woodworth swapped places in the legislative lineup with another MP, citing his mother’s failing health as the reason he sought a delay.

Mr. Woodworth has my heartfelt sympathy: been there, done that, wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

Would it be possible that along with family time, the postponement of this doomed-from-the-start “debate” will give Woodworth the opportunity to consider the potentially disastrous repercussions of his ill-advised motion on all the women in Canada who aren’t his mother?

Thought not.

That “whoooosh” you’re hearing now is my sigh, of frustration and disgust.

Woodworth’s Wank Revisited

Like many progressives, fern hill is looking for a way to unite the opposition parties, and she may have found one.

Regular readers will recall MP Stephen Woodworth’s bilious bleating on Twitter about “when life begins”, which unlike most Canadians, Woodworth contends is “in the petri dish”.  His embryo-obsessed Twit-jaculations started in December and evolved into the waste of taxpayer dollars known as the Motion 312 debate scheduled for April 26th.  There’s been a surprising dearth of commentary from our elected officials on this thing, considering the profound impact it could have on women’s reproductive freedom.  The motion is a dumbly transparent attempt to get a foot in the door to turning back the clock on rights which were hard-fought and hard-won by the side of liberty many years ago… yo, fetus fetishists, we won.  You lost.  Get the fuck over it.

As decidedly absurd as the motion is, assurances that pro-choice MPs, opposition and otherwise, will unite against it would be most welcome.  They are, after all, our only voice in the thing.  Which brings me to Fern Hill, The Uniter.

Yesterday in an Open Letter to Opposition Women’s Caucuses, she lit the proverbial fire under some pampered Parliamentary arses by reminding them of this issue and asking that all pro-choice MPs stand against Woodworth’s Wank (Fern’s nickname for 312: your suggestions are welcome!) when it comes up for debate.  Something like pronouncing it a waste of taxpayer dollars and an insult to hard-working Canadians concerned about REAL issues like jobs and the economy, then walking out in unison, would turn my frown upside-down.  (A full-on toothy grin could be achieved if the MPs were to roughly stand up, upending the debate table, and amid tumbling papers and laptops and coffees scream “Fuck you people!” and then walk out in unison… but I don’t think it’s in the cards.)

The good news is, we have signs of life!  We may see a unified opposition yet, at least on this issue.


I guess Karen Handel has never heard about the First Rule of Holes — when you’re in one, stop digging:

Karen Handel, the former senior vice president of public policy at Susan G. Komen for the Cure, accused Planned Parenthood of extortion during an appearance on the Christian Broadcasting Network. […]

“It’s clear that Planned Parenthood proactively went to [the Associated Press],” Handel said. “On top of that, what is even more disturbing is the gross mischaracterization of the decision, the solid evidence that this was a premeditated, orchestrated attack on a breast cancer organization.”

I love the smell of Righteous Indignation in the morning.  Smells like… BULLSHIT.

Seriously: a “premeditated, orchestrated attack” by Planned Parenthood?  A “shakedown”??

How is that even possible?  The shit didn’t hit the fan until after Komen made the announcement about cutting PP’s funding, and even then it was largely an outraged, spontaneous grassroots response on social media.   (It was in fact a glorious testimony to the mountain-moving power of the Internets in the hands of Angry Citizens.)

Sorry Karen, but everyone knows what happened here and no amount of demented, bizarro-world tap-dancing will change it.  The sad and sorry little factoid that defunding Planned Parenthood has been your “signature issue” since, like, forever (or at least long before you infested the Komen organization) is what they refer to in poker as “the tell“.

In that spirit, I’ll see your phony shakedown and raise you a live one:

Ron Paul, Contraceptives & Abortion

Of the four(4) GOP primary candidates still standing, the only one I can even come close to listening to with a serious ear is libertarian Ron Paul.  Now before everyone jumps all over the comments section with the “Ron Paul is no friend of progressives!!” stuff, yeah yeah, I get that, but I don’t have to agree with 100% of his ideas for some of them to make sense to me.  (I also give him enthusiastic props  for being stubbornly contrarian on issues like goofy sabre-rattling and war-mongering and drug prohibition, even though his positions on these issues almost invariably provoke boos, jeers and hoots of derision from stupidly doctrinaire GOP primary audiences.)

But as much as I find some of Dr.Paul’s ideas interesting and even commendable, I’ve always been distressed and confused by his brainlessly retrograde position on reproductive rights …even contraception.  On last night’s show, Lawrence O’Donnell took Dr. Paul to task for marketing himself as a libertarian while espousing such decidedly UN-libertarian views on Womens’ Health:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Can’t say I disagree. Too bad this guy dropped out of the race.

Reproductive McCarthyism and a new nadir of authoritarian dumbness

Frankly, it didn’t surprise me a bit that SUZANNE would be All In with the idea of publishing a database of personal information and photos of gynecologists and other reproductive health professionals whose services include — but are not limited to — abortion. How awesome she must imagine it would feel to stand before the trembling masses of healthcare providers and the women they serve, and say:

“I have here in my hand a list…”

After all, SUZANNE is among those who greeted the assassination of Dr. George Tiller with dramatic fluttery sighs and flaccid exhortations against violence after years spent vilifying and demonizing the man, to the unsurprising end that he was murdered by one of their more zealous fellow travellers.  Not a Hit List?  Pull the other one.

But as she struggled feverishly to rationalize what is clearly and undeniably nothing more than an anti-abortion Hit List, she crossed a Rubicon of Authoritarian Madness that even surprised me.  From the comments at her blog (which is unlinkable due to her sophomoric habit of redirecting links to fetus pron):

“They might in the future”??

It’s difficult to know how to respond to that without perpetuating Godwin’s Law.

When the wind is right, is a faint odour of kerosene exhaled from SUZANNE?

Happy Birthday Roe v. Wade

Let the shrieeeeeeekfest begin.

Yeah yeah yeah.

Today America celebrates 39 years of the right to reproductive choice, a hard-fought battle that continues to this very day in spite of choice being the law of the land.  But in a press release today Pres. Obama vowed to protect abortion rights:

As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right. 

Could anything illustrate the difference between the 2012 Presidential candidates — whichever GOP candidate is eventually chosen — as starkly as this issue?

And one other point of interest, if you please: why is it that the teabaggers, who are so insistent that government stay out of everything, are cool with the idea of the state policing American wombs?  I’ve never quite been able to square that one: I suspect it may not be square-able.  Or even square-worthy.


Give it up, Woodworth

When you’ve lost the National Post, it’s Game Over:

Anyone paying attention over the past few weeks would have spotted the most unlikely of Canadian events: a debate over abortion.  […]

Mr. Woodworth’s quixotic campaign — and the P.E.I. activists’ failed attempts — prove that a broad debate in Canada on abortion is almost incapable of lasting more than a few weeks.

And it’s not just the National Post pronouncing that Woodworth’s sleazy little campaign to make Abortion the Canadian Political Topic du Jour is stillborn, DOA, pining for the fjords, etc.:

Even the Catholic bishop of Calgary, Fred Henry, agrees there is more to what Mr. Woodworth is proposing than meets the eye, even though he is sympathetic with what the MP is trying to do.

“He’s reaching for straws,” said Bishop Henry. “He’s grasping for anything that will open any kind of debate on abortion.

Bishop Fred Henry… gee, that name sounds so familiar.  And who exactly is Bishop Fred Henry?  One of these radical pro-choice Catholics?  Not exactly:

Calgary’s Catholic bishop said Tuesday he’s prepared to order Calgary Separate School Board officials to ban Progressive Conservative Leader Joe Clark from its schools.

Calgary’s Bishop Frederick Henry told a local radio talk show Tuesday that it’s “scandalous behaviour” for a Roman Catholic politician like Clark, MP for Calgary Centre, to declare himself pro-choice on the abortion issue.

Much as I support your right to talk and tweet and write little pressers about whatever tickles your fetus fetishizing fancy, if I were a friend my friendly advice would be to drop this particular crusade and move on to something that’s less likely to end in crushing, psychologically-debilitating disappointment.  You lost this one years ago to the side of liberty; it’s probably a bad idea to invite the public humiliation of losing it all over again.

Also, I don’t know if it’s occurred to you, but in this Foul Year of Our Lord 2012 Canadian taxpayers would no doubt prefer that the hard-earned money they’re paying their elected representatives is being spent on something a little more pressing than revisiting some long-dead Culture War issue.

Ya think??

“If you’re pre-born you’re fine, if you’re pre-school you’re fucked”

As the children of Attawapiskat endure yet another day of grinding poverty, the “Harper Government” cries “Oh look!  A fetus!”:

A Conservative MP is seeking to reopen Canada’s abortion debate, apparently against his government’s wishes, by asking Parliament to consider “21st century medical evidence” on when a fetus becomes a person under the law.

It was only a matter of time before another member of the CPC’s perpetually-muzzled and brainless Fetus Fetishist Contingent got off-leash and ran amok all over the neighbourhood, barking deliriously, upending garbage cans and rolling ecstatically in the rotten swill before making off with the choicest bits of dreck.

Yesterday’s foul-smelling trash-toting garbage dog was MP Stephen Woodworth of Kitchener Center, who trotted up to the Media wagging his tail and proudly holding this hunk of rancid meat in his teeth:

A recent poll disclosed that 80% of Canadians believe that Canadian law protects the fundamental human rights of children before birth in the later stages of gestation.

In fact, the opposite is true.  Canadian law provides no human rights protection whatsoever for children before the moment of complete birth.  This results from an unusual Canadian statute which defines a human being as a child who has completely proceeded in a living state from the mother’s body, whether or not the child has breathed.  This means that in Canada a child is legally considered to be sub-human while his or her little toe remains in the birth canal, even if he or she is breathing.

I can almost hear the Fetus Lobby squealing “Good boy, Stevie, have a cookie!”

It’s a sad commentary on his demented priorities that while living, breathing Aboriginal children exist in such desperate squalor that the UN is calling our government out on it, Woodworth is preoccupied with those that haven’t even been born yet.  “Pro-Life”?  “My-Ass”.

Woodworth’s press release, in which the word “abortion” is sneakily absent, nonetheless reiterates the popular anti-choice contention that women and doctors are so intellectually and morally bankrupt that abortion 2 minutes before birth is an option they’d actually consider.  Intelligent people recognize the notion for what it is: fatuous at best and a savagely misogynist insult to women (and the medical profession) at worst.  Which is why the idea typically goes down in flames, amidst raucous laughter and hoots of derision, whenever one of these crackpots raises it.

But that doesn’t stop them from trying.  The latest kick at this well-worn can may be an attempt to light a fire under this goofy little project, which in spite of its elegant slavery and “3rd Reich” analogies doesn’t seem to be attracting anyone except other fetus fetishists to engage in “The Debate”.

Small Government!

Looks pretty personal, doesn't it? That lady with the latex gloves: the Government.

When people like Michele Bachmann (R-Batshit) jabber inanely about “small government”, what they mean is government so small it can crawl up your vagina and do an ultrasound of the contents of your womb:

Republican presidential candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) proposed a bill on Thursday that would force women in the early stages of pregnancy to have a physically invasive and medically unnecessary ultrasound procedure before they can legally consent to having an abortion.

One couldn’t be blamed for asking why.  It can’t be because women are too stupid to know what pregnancy means: obviously they’re cognizant of everything it means, physically and to their lives personally, or they wouldn’t have made the decision to terminate.  But even having made the right choice on an intellectual level, some women find themselves on shaky emotional ground over this most personal of decisions.  The odious misogynist creeps who call themselves “pro-lifers” long ago figured out that this was a vulnerability just waiting to be exploited, and that’s what forced ultrasounds are meant to do.  With so many states in the US casually legislating forced ultrasound, you have to wonder about the road they’re on and where the next turnoff might lead.

There’s an awful lot of hand-wringing and pearl-clutching about a largely mythical problem known as “coerced abortion“;  welcome to coerced childbirth.  For real.  Not even by a partner or parent but by the state.

Sorry Michele, but it doesn’t get any Bigger Government than that.

Another bill bites the dust

Steve walks warily in to vote on the latest anti-choice bill

Ain’t no sound but the sound of him telling his flunkies to vote to kill

The foetishists are ready, they’re ready for this, they’re hangin’ on the edge of their seats

Out of Lifesite the shrieking rips, to the sound of the tweets

Another bill bites the dust

Another bill bites the dust

And another bill’s gone and another bill’s gone, another bill bites the dust

Hey!  We’ll kill the next one too!  Another bill bites the dust!

Ooooohhhhhhh yeah!

DJ reports that yet another backdoor anti-abortion bill from the infamous Pro-Life Caucus is no longer pining for the fjords but has passed on, is no more, has ceased to be, expired and shuffled off its mortal coil.  It is an EX-bill.  The doomed Bill C-510 was voted down today by 178-97, the NO vote being a healthy majority that included — shriek — Stephen Harper.

C-510 is just the latest entry in the never-ending competition among anti-choice MPs to see who can actually get an anti-abortion measure passed.  This redundant and patently phony “anti-coerced abortion” bill is clearly useless — it doesn’t stop violence against women and even the bill’s sponsor, MP Rod Bruinooge, openly admits that it would be virtually unenforceable. Clearly the legislation serves no purpose other than to chip away at abortion rights by putting abortion providers at legal risk.

Here’s what the Canadian Civil Liberties Association had to say about it:

However, the new prohibitions that Bill C-510 attempts to create are not helpful in addressing the question of violence against women.

A young pregnant woman has the right to choose whether to carry a pregnancy to term or to terminate it. Whichever option she chooses, she should not be subjected to harassment, intimidation, threats or the removal of financial support. The Criminal Code already prohibits all of these activities. Thus there is no need for Bill C-510. In any event, this bill only addresses the “coercion” of abortion.

Furthermore, by only creating prohibitions around abortion, the Bill effectively implies that this is not a valid or legitimate choice.

In addition, Bill C-510 is so broad in its language, that it might have the potential to criminalize the activities of Planned Parenthood and other social and healthcare workers, who provide important information and medical treatment – including abortion – to those who choose it.

In light of the above, CCLA calls for the withdrawal and the defeat of Bill C-510.

Anti-choicers have long since come to grips with the reality that upfront anti-abortion legislation isn’t in the cards under any government in Canada and that only an incremental approach stands a chance.  But so far success has eluded even the cheap, sleazy “death by a thousand cuts” strategy, and there’s no reason to think the winds of such change are anything but the anti-abortion movement’s own mental flatulence.  Not that the sneaky fuckers will ever stop trying.

So until the next time…

Operation Rescue promotes Tiller documentary

Operation Rescue, the anti-abortion extremists whose decades-long campaign of harassment, demonization and terror against Dr. George Tiller culminated with his assassination last year, (although they had nothing, nothing to do with it, nothing at all!), is upset, or has hurt feelings or some bullshit.

Old design -- wonder why they changed it

Apparently this sleazy little gang of embryo-infatuated psychotics and born-again dingbats is all fired up about the upcoming MSNBC documentary on Dr. Tiller’s murder.  Yes, that’s upcoming, as in they haven’t even seen it yet because it doesn’t air until Monday night (9pm eastern, be there or be square), but they’re already falling to the fainting couches in the frenzied throes of a collective persecution high.

OR’s head foetishist, Troy Newman, gave an interview for the documentary — because what documentary about Dr. Tiller’s murder would be complete without an interview with his Terrorizer-and-Demonizer-in-Chief? — but OR is clearly already preparing for a good persecution buzz.  The prevailing expectation is that they will be “vilified” by the pro-abort radical Rachel Maddow, to which I say Good: what goes around comes around, see how Dr.Tiller felt for years while you brain-damaged sickos were vilifying him. (The big difference of course is that the Operation Rescue creeps don’t need to worry about some nutcase giving them two behind the ear as a direct result of the vilification.)  Oh yeah, and boo hoo hoo:

“We agreed to do the show — even though we knew they would vilify us — because we had a third story to tell, and that is the story of the tens of thousands of innocent babies killed by abortion during Tiller’s long and checkered abortion career,” said Newman.

OR’s brainless little diatribe winds up with a reminder to tune in to MSNBC at 9pm Monday (check your local listings!).  Can you imagine the tsunami of caps-locked emails storming onto the MSNBC servers at 10pm?  Maybe Rachel will feature some of the “best” ones on the next day’s show!

Operation Rescue’s part in Dr. Tiller’s assassination is an unresolved issue that they’d rather would just stay that way.  Programs like the MSNBC documentary and persistent hammering at the issue by news commentators like Rachel Maddow (and to a lesser degree, tenacious pro-choice bloggers) are the only things that stand between them and a total Get Out Of Jail Free card on the Tiller murder, and free reign to continue their campaign of terror against other doctors.
