A Disabled Lawmaker Speaks Out About Abortion: ‘People Like Me’ Are Facing Extinction ~ Powerful testimony from Lord Kevin Shinkwin speaking before Parliament on the sanctity of all human life ~
“I can see from the trends in abortion on grounds of disability that the writing is on the wall for people like me,” said Shinkwin, who is disabled. “People with congenital disabilities are facing extinction.

Just ask the Sierra Club ~
We need abortion to reach a ‘sustainable population’: top environmental activist ~ The mask drops, the greens aren’t hiding their agenda anymore; to save the environment – we need to kill the babies. The Sierra Club has pretty much lost their way in the progressive wilderness ~
The Sierra Club has been issuing multiple daily press releases since President Trump was elected and inaugurated. They range from opposing the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court to opposing the No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act, which makes the Hyde Amendment prohibiting federal funding of abortion permanent. The Sierra Club has also opposed Sen. Jeff Sessions becoming the United States Attorney General because he is “a proven opponent of environmental protection, civil rights and civil liberties and he must be stopped.”
The Sierra Club was an official partner of the pro-abortion Women’s March on Washington because “Trump’s administration has proven itself to be a threat to women, immigrants, workers, LGBTQ rights, clean air and water, climate safeguards, and so many other people and places.”

Flashback: Bill Clinton Says In 1995 What Trump Says Today On Immigration ~ Here’s what then-president Clinton had to say about border security back in ’95 ~
“That’s why our administration has moved to aggressively secure our borders more, by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as every before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens,” Clinton said.
Clinton received a standing ovation for his remarks.

David Harbour, star of the hit Netflix series “Stranger Things:”
… great acting can change the world, is a call to arms from our fellow craftsmen and women to go deeper, and through our art to battle against fear, self-centeredness, and exclusivity of our predominately narcissistic culture, and through our craft to cultivate a more empathetic and understanding society by revealing intimate truths that serve as a forceful reminder to folks…
