Abortion addict admits to 15 abortions in 16 years

Irene Vilar, an Hispanic author, describes the 15 abortions she has had as a married woman in her new book to be released next month.

…In her upcoming book, Impossible Motherhood: Testimony of an Abortion Addict, she describes herself as an abortion addict who had 15 abortions as a married woman.

Vilar, a mother of two, describes her multiple abortions as a means of self-injury to cope from previous abortions.

Killing another person is not “self-injury”. Unless you want to say that George Sodini shot those women as “a means of self-injury”.

She had her children from 17th and 18th pregnancies. Vilar says she will be conducting closed-door interviews and will not do a book tour fearing a public backlash.

Imagine that.

However, doctors consider Vilar incredibly lucky to have children after 15 abortions. According to the physicians, women who have had multiple abortions can have cervical damage which can cause problems in future pregnancies.

Advocates of baby-killing become furious when doctors mention such facts. They want women to believe they can have a dozen abortions with no physical or psychological consequences. They can’t.

I won’t be posting much for a while because real life is keeping me busy and worn out. However, I do have a few links to share.

Here’s a very interesting new blog: Beta Revolution.

Beta – This word will, for simplicity’s sake, be used as a noun. You may ask why for this, and not for that? Well, it’s a revolution you see. Labeling a man an alpha posits certain benefits for which betas may not naturally be accustomed to claiming, not that every beta ought to claim them or necessarily needs to. So beta is a noun which identifies each of us as brothers. Characteristics of betas happen to be necessary for the functioning of civilization, but they are also neglected by the evolutionarily-endowed subconscious of woman.

Whiskey has a good post about the gym shootings.

Which leads to the most disturbing thing about our society today. Even with the rash of shootings, America is so big (303 million people and counting) that the shootings have only a minor affect on society, outside the tragedy for the victims and survivors. But the shootings point to a larger issue: the loss of investment of men in society. An investment that keeps even crazy people from targeting society itself, particularly innocent people, and makes men respond to a threat by risking or giving up their lives to save it’s foundation: women and children.

He also has a post about how Hollywood is promoting female infidelity.

I’ve continued to read Vox Popoli. There’s some important things I disagree with him about, but he is gratifyingly antifeminist and roasts our so-called educational system frequently. Here he discusses why women’s suffrage was a bad idea. Here he discusses a middle-aged woman who “cheats, divorces, and therefore concludes the institution of marriage must be outmoded.”

The Friday Challenge muses on the antimale bias of TV shows. This bugs me a lot, and it bothers ordinary women too. I can’t find the link now, but I read a woman who complained about commercials, saying, “You’re not going to sell to me by saying that my husband is an idiot!”

Here’s more on feminism promoting the murder of women: Sweden allows sex-selective abortions. That’s the difference between me and feminists: I don’t try to get women and girls killed. They do.

Remarks of the Rev. Katherine Hancock Ragsdale

Well Operation Save America came, they saw, they harassed, and they annoyed; but they did not close the clinic. The clinic stayed open, no patients were turned away, and the doors never closed. We remain victorious. And that victory is a good thing – but, make no mistake, even though OSA has gone home; our work is not done.

If we were to leave this park and discover that clinic violence had become a thing of the past, never to plague us again, that would be a very good thing, indeed; but, still, our work would not be done.

If we were to find that, while we were here, Congress had acted to insure that abortion would always be legal, that would be a very good thing; but our work would not be done.

Just how could Congress do that? They have no way of preventing future Congressmen from changing the law.

How will we know when our work is done? I suspect we’ll know it when we see it. But let me give you some sure indicators that it isn’t done yet:

– When doctors and pharmacists try to opt out of providing medical care, claiming it’s an act of conscience, our work is not done.

Let me say a bit more about that, because the religious community has long been an advocate of taking principled stands of conscience – even when such stands require civil disobedience. We’ve supported conscientious objectors, the Underground Railroad, freedom riders, sanctuary seekers, and anti-apartheid protestors. We support people who put their freedom and safety at risk for principles they believe in.

But let’s be clear, there’s a world of difference between those who engage in such civil disobedience, and pay the price, and doctors and pharmacists who insist that the rest of the world reorder itself to protect their consciences – that others pay the price for their principles.

A feminist abortion advocate is complaining about doctors and pharmacists insisting “that others pay the price for their principles”? I couldn’t make this shit up.

This isn’t particularly complicated. If your conscience forbids you to carry arms, don’t join the military or become a police officer. If you have qualms about animal experimentation, think hard before choosing to go into medical research. And, if you’re not prepared to provide the full range of reproductive health care (or prescriptions) to any woman who needs it then don’t go into obstetrics and gynecology, or internal or emergency medicine, or pharmacology. Choose another field! We’ll respect your consciences when you begin to take responsibility for them.

I’ll give you another example, Kathy, and not a particularly complicated one either. If your conscience demands that you promote the murder of babies, don’t get ordained as a Christian minister.

Also, don’t become a Christian if you’re a moral relativist. The two are mutually exclusive.

A barbaric kind of beauty

She doesn’t care if the treatment is expensive, involves babies and is so controversial that it is not allowed to be performed in this country – among her well-heeled friends, this is the ultimate new elixir of youth.
The attractive brunette has opted for a controversial stem- cell therapy where umbilical cord tissue from new-born babies will be injected into her body.

The Treatment: Anti-ageing stem-cell injections made from aborted foetal tissue, £15,000 The past 12 months have seen this popular holiday resort become the stem-cell capital of the developed world, treating hundreds of patients in a year…. The clinic claims that the foetal tissue derived from elective abortions at six to 12 weeks is rich in regenerative stem cells.

Why The ‘Perfect’ Body Isn’t Always Perfect: How Hormones Interact With Waist-to-hip Ratios In Women
Get a load of how they spin this lack of femininity:

Having an imperfect body may come with some substantial benefits for some women, according to a new article in the December issue of Current Anthropology.
The hormones that make women physically stronger, more competitive and better able to deal with stress also tend to redistribute fat from the hips to the waist, according to Elizabeth Cashdan, an anthropologist at the University of Utah. So in societies and situations where women are under pressure to procure resources, they may be less likely to have the classic hourglass figure.

Patients struggle to find women doctors

PATIENTS who wish to consult female doctors are struggling, as the state suffers from a statewide shortage of women GPs.

Fight, Flight . . . or Tend and Befriend?

When Shelley Taylor at UCLA looked at the research on fight or flight, she found that it was primarily based on studying men. In her studies of women, she found a very different response to fear, which she termed “tend and befriend.” It also had biological underpinnings. When women sensed a threat, they emitted oxytocin, sometimes called the bonding hormone. Rather than fight or flee, they would talk, soothe, and try to connect. I saw a similar response to fear when I worked with women rape victims. Many reported that rather than fight off their assailant or try to flee, they were kind to the rapist in hopes that he would change his mind.

It’s a boy! Asian immigrants use medical technology to satisfy age-old desire: a son

A Columbia University study suggests that Chinese, Indian and Korean immigrants have been using medical technology, most likely including abortion, to assure their later children were boys.

Florence King:

Computers are delicate mechanisms whose power resides in mysterious interior places; there is no way of knowing whether or not they will respond; they react with hysteria to some little problem that wouldn’t bother anybody but a computer; and they have achieved the status of “can’t live with ’em, can’t live without ’em.” It’s only a matter of time before they join ships under the mantle of “she,” but the techno-snots will never caress the word as sailors do.

The Uneven Playing Field

Title IX, the federal law enacted in 1972 mandating equal opportunity in sports, has helped to shape a couple of generations of girls who believe they are as capable and as tough as any boy….

This casualty rate was not due to some random spike in South Florida. It is part of a national trend in the wake of Title IX and the explosion of sports participation among girls and young women. From travel teams up through some of the signature programs in women’s college sports, women are suffering injuries that take them off the field for weeks or seasons at a time, or sometimes forever.

Girls and boys diverge in their physical abilities as they enter puberty and move through adolescence. Higher levels of testosterone allow boys to add muscle and, even without much effort on their part, get stronger. In turn, they become less flexible. Girls, as their estrogen levels increase, tend to add fat rather than muscle. They must train rigorously to get significantly stronger. The influence of estrogen makes girls’ ligaments lax, and they outperform boys in tests of overall body flexibility — a performance advantage in many sports, but also an injury risk when not accompanied by sufficient muscle to keep joints in stable, safe positions. Girls tend to run differently than boys — in a less-flexed, more-upright posture — which may put them at greater risk when changing directions and landing from jumps. Because of their wider hips, they are more likely to be knock-kneed — yet another suspected risk factor.

Are Women Human and Other Feminist Straw-Men

How do you feel about the fact that feminists passed a law that makes physical incapacity NOT to be an excuse for non-payment of child support? In one case in 1991, a US soldier who spent 5.5 months as an Iraqi POW was arrested on the very FIRST DAY back from Iraq. In another case, a man who was in a coma was arrested after waking up for not paying to his ex-wife while he was in a coma. In several cases, men who were imprisoned and proved with DNA evidence that they were wrongfully convicted were never let out of prison because they didn’t pay to their ex-wives while in prison (child support remains the same if you lose your job because you are arrested).

This reminds me of how, the day after the inauguration, several of my female classmates were discussing how much they loved Michelle Obama’s dress and how excited they were to have a First Lady whose fashion they can follow closely.

Throwing like a girl(’s brain)

In fact, the empirical gulf between average throwing ability in men and women is huge (just as it is symbolically important), dwarfing virtually any other measurable difference between the sexes, even things like aggression, frequency of masturbation, attitudes towards casual sex, and spatial abilities on paper-and-pencil tests.

For the record, I throw like a girl.

Finally, this cheered me up yesterday:
Roissy in DC

If there were any remaining doubts that giving women the right to vote has been an unmitigated disaster for America, this article should dispel them. Most women, especially single SWPLers and undersexed hausfraus bitter about being married to quisling betas, are simply unserious creatures who will let their emotions guide them to vote away the political and social arrangements that created the modern yenta-fied culture that affords them the luxury of voting like vapid teenage girls.

Abortion good, Fathers bad

June 1, 2008

Caveat Emptor by David Warren

A pro-choice organizatin in Canada put up a billboard pointing out that abortion is legal for the entire term of pregnancy. (By the way, late-term abortions are extremely dangerous, and frequently kill the mother. That’s what feminists are campaigning for!) Advertising Standards Canada ruled that the billboard is “deceptive”, even though it is entirely factual. Why? Because it didn’t mention “access”. Feminists want to pretend that “access” to abortion is an issue, even though:

The feminist red herring about “access” is not something worthy of serious discussion. When a woman wants an abortion in this country, she gets it, pronto. That is indeed a very good reason why abortions in the third trimester are comparatively rare. And yet they do happen, and they are quite legal. The billboard wasn’t discussing numbers, it was discussing law.

In Canada’s socialist medical system, you can wait months, possibly years, for vital medical treatment; you can and will wait for hip or knee replacements, MRI scans, all kinds of clinical work and general surgery. In many parts of Canada you can wait for the rest of your life for access to a family doctor. If you go to emergency in a Canadian hospital towards midnight, you can wait all night to be seen by a nurse. Complaints about “access to abortion” are a very grim joke. If women had been similarly wait-listed for this service, the population of this country would by now be several million higher.

Meanwhile, an anti-father billboard campaign is going unharassed:

Compare, if you will, an advertisement from the feminist Canadian Women’s Foundation, that has been running as a “public service” — carpet-bombed across the country not only on billboards but in newspapers, with bank statements, and on the sides of buses. It is intended to “create awareness of domestic violence.”

Under the headline, “Shelter from the Storm,” it depicts “a sullen, rather menacing father, staring defiantly at the camera” from one end of a sofa, and “a waifish, stressed-looking mother shielding anxious children” at the other. (The descriptors are Barbara Kay’s, and I cannot improve on them.) A dotted vertical line divides this father from the rest of his family.

The message of this advertisement is as unambiguously hateful as it is clich?d and slick. Without any further words it communicates a savage denunciation of “white males,” and supports the feminist stereotype that they are violent, abusive, and tyrannical by nature. Women, by contrast, are peaceful, and nurturing, and if they have any flaw, it is perhaps that they have been too accommodating to men in the past. Children, too, are routinely abused by these white male reptiles, and thus side exclusively with their mothers.

Thank God. (God the Father.)

New Haven, Conn. — April 17, 2008

Ms. Shvarts is engaged in performance art. Her art project includes visual representations, a press release and other narrative materials. She stated to three senior Yale University officials today, including two deans, that she did not impregnate herself and that she did not induce any miscarriages. The entire project is an art piece, a creative fiction designed to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body.

She is an artist and has the right to express herself through performance art.

Had these acts been real, they would have violated basic ethical standards and raised serious mental and physical health concerns.

It was still a highly appalling publicity stunt. Assuming that it was a publicity stunt and that it wasn’t real. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if Yale was just trying to do damage control. The echoes of this will last for decades. And Yale deserves it for behaving as if this was art instead of teaching the stupid cunt to draw.

Abortion as Art

April 17, 2008

I can’t even comment on this. It speaks for itself anyway.

For senior, abortion a medium for art, political discourse

Martine Powers
Staff Reporter
Published Thursday, April 17, 2008
Art major Aliza Shvarts ’08 wants to make a statement.

Beginning next Tuesday, Shvarts will be displaying her senior art project, a documentation of a nine-month process during which she artificially inseminated herself “as often as possible” while periodically taking abortifacient drugs to induce miscarriages. Her exhibition will feature video recordings of these forced miscarriages as well as preserved collections of the blood from the process.

The goal in creating the art exhibition, Shvarts said, was to spark conversation and debate on the relationship between art and the human body. But her project has already provoked more than just debate, inciting, for instance, outcry at a forum for fellow senior art majors held last week. And when told about Shvarts’ project, students on both ends of the abortion debate have expressed shock . saying the project does everything from violate moral code to trivialize abortion.

But Shvarts insists her concept was not designed for “shock value.”

“I hope it inspires some sort of discourse,” Shvarts said. “Sure, some people will be upset with the message and will not agree with it, but it’s not the intention of the piece to scandalize anyone.”

The “fabricators,” or donors, of the sperm were not paid for their services, but Shvarts required them to periodically take tests for sexually transmitted diseases. She said she was not concerned about any medical effects the forced miscarriages may have had on her body. The abortifacient drugs she took were legal and herbal, she said, and she did not feel the need to consult a doctor about her repeated miscarriages.

Shvarts declined to specify the number of sperm donors she used, as well as the number of times she inseminated herself.

Art major Juan Castillo ’08 said that although he was intrigued by the creativity and beauty of her senior project, not everyone was as thrilled as he was by the concept and the means by which she attained the result.

“I really loved the idea of this project, but a lot other people didn’t,” Castillo said. “I think that most people were very resistant to thinking about what the project was really about. [The senior-art-project forum] stopped being a conversation on the work itself.”

Although Shvarts said she does not remember the class being quite as hostile as Castillo described, she said she believes it is the nature of her piece to “provoke inquiry.”

“I believe strongly that art should be a medium for politics and ideologies, not just a commodity,” Shvarts said. “I think that I’m creating a project that lives up to the standard of what art is supposed to be.”

The display of Schvarts’ project will feature a large cube suspended from the ceiling of a room in the gallery of Green Hall. Schvarts will wrap hundreds of feet of plastic sheeting around this cube; lined between layers of the sheeting will be the blood from Schvarts’ self-induced miscarriages mixed with Vaseline in order to prevent the blood from drying and to extend the blood throughout the plastic sheeting.

Schvarts will then project recorded videos onto the four sides of the cube. These videos, captured on a VHS camcorder, will show her experiencing miscarriages in her bathrooom tub, she said. Similar videos will be projected onto the walls of the room.

School of Art lecturer Pia Lindman, Schvarts’ senior-project advisor, could not be reached for comment Wednesday night.

Few people outside of Yale’s undergraduate art department have heard about Shvarts’ exhibition. Members of two campus abortion-activist groups . Choose Life at Yale, a pro-life group, and the Reproductive Rights Action League of Yale, a pro-choice group . said they were not previously aware of Schvarts’ project.

Alice Buttrick ’10, an officer of RALY, said the group was in no way involved with the art exhibition and had no official opinion on the matter.

Sara Rahman ’09 said, in her opinion, Shvarts is abusing her constitutional right to do what she chooses with her body.

“[Shvarts’ exhibit] turns what is a serious decision for women into an absurdism,” Rahman said. “It discounts the gravity of the situation that is abortion.”

CLAY member Jonathan Serrato ’09 said he does not think CLAY has an official response to Schvarts’ exhibition. But personally, Serrato said he found the concept of the senior art project “surprising” and unethical.

“I feel that she’s manipulating life for the benefit of her art, and I definitely don’t support it,” Serrato said. “I think it’s morally wrong.”

Shvarts emphasized that she is not ashamed of her exhibition, and she has become increasingly comfortable discussing her miscarriage experiences with her peers.

“It was a private and personal endeavor, but also a transparent one for the most part,” Shvarts said. “This isn’t something I’ve been hiding.”

The official reception for the Undergraduate Senior Art Show will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on April 25. The exhibition will be on public display from April 22 to May 1. The art exhibition is set to premiere alongside the projects of other art seniors this Tuesday, April 22 at the gallery of Holcombe T. Green Jr. Hall on Chapel Street.
