There Was Nothin' I Could Do, Man!




Like we was just swimmin' around, and we go to the beach and this scaly dude just up and disappears Julie. I'm like, Oh! EM! Gee! I mean, what were the chances?

...just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water. However I can't fault the Creature from the Black Lagoon for his taste in morsels.

On a more serious note, that pretty lady tempting lizard boy is more likely to die due to an abortion related incident than a snake bite of lightning strike. Unfortunately the CDC goes out of its way to ignore abortion deaths (the momma, not the baby).

From the Elliot Institute:
The scope of the coverup is hinted at in a memo from Steven C. Joseph, M.D., the Commissioner of Health for New York City, to all of his city's abortion providers. Dated June 5, 1987, the friendly memo simply cautioned against the overuse of general anesthesia, stating: "During the period between 1981 and 1984, there were 30 legal abortion-related deaths in New York City . . . one-third of these (10) were due to general anesthesia, whereas in the rest of the United States less than 10 percent of abortion-related deaths were due to general anesthesia (12/146)."(4)

While not intended for release to the general public, this memo is clear evidence that public health authorities know far more about abortion-related deaths than is being shared in the "official" statistics. For this same time period (1981-1984), New York's top health official had identified 30 deaths in New York City alone, while the CDC's official report shows only 42 abortion-related deaths during this period for the entire nation.

In addition, the memo also suggests that the Commissioner of Health had access to unpublished information identifying another 146 abortion-related deaths for that same time period outside of New York. Combined with the 30 deaths in New York City, that is 176 abortion-related deaths in all--419 percent higher than was reported in the official CDC numbers.


Similar admissions of cover-up have been made by other public health authorities.(5) For example, following the death of Barbara Lee Davis from hemorrhage after a routine first-trimester abortion, the chief of the Illinois Department of Public's Division of Hospitals and Clinics admitted to reporters, "It's unfortunate, but it's happening every day in Chicago, and you're just not hearing about it."(6) Just one year later, during an investigation of only four Chicago-based abortion clinics, investigative reporters for the Chicago-Sun Times identified twelve abortion-related deaths that had not been reported in the state's official statistics.(7)

On a lighter note, that photo looks like the First Wookie attacking Sarah Palin.

Can't be attacking Sarah Palin or we'd see it getting it's ass kicked seven ways from Sunday.

What are you guys talking about? That's an artist's rendering of a crime scene.

Sarah Palin would have field-dressed that lizard con gusto.

Is that gal sporting an adult diaper?

Wetzy said...

Depends.

Rhod said...

Just an old-fashioned love thong, Nickie.

C.B.L. has a place waiting form him in government service.

Nick thinks that every one is like him.

Rhod, I see you are snowed in with the flask again.
