Abortion and mental health link

Women who have an abortion are more likely to suffer subsequent poor mental health, according to a new survey.

The University of Otago study found women who had an abortion faced a 30 per cent increase in the risk of developing common mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.

Well duh!

Of course there is a link, you have to have mental health issues anyway in order get an abortion in the first instance. That is how we effectively have abortion on demand even when the law prohibits it.

The grounds for abortion are:

  • Serious danger to life
  • Serious danger to physical health
  • Serious danger to mental health
  • Any form of incest or sexual relations with a guardian
  • Mental subnormality
  • Fetal abnormality (added in the July 1978 amendment)

In the latest statistics for abortion that show the Kiwi women murdered over 18,000 children, 98–99 percent of all abortions are performed because of serious danger to the mental health of the woman.

Got that, our children are being killed because of danger of mental health of the woman. End of story, there is no second factor, the numbers are unequivocal, fort you have to have a danger to your mental health before you have the abortion, it then stands to reason that wwomen who have an abortion then have a 30% increased risk factor for further mental health issues. Of the 18,380 abortions performed last year, 18196 of them were to women who supposedly faced serious danger to their mental health. That is a whole lot of crazy people roaming around out there.

Of course that is nothing compared to the 100% fatality statistics for the babies that were aborted, but no one asked their opinion.

While I am talking about abortion, how come supporters of abortion worry about the numbers having abortions? I don’t get it, I thought it was about a womans right to choose, surely that isn’t a bad thing?

We have campaigns to stop people smoking. Why? Because it is BAD. We have campaigns to stop people taking drugs. Why? Because they are BAD……now we are going to have a camoaign to reduce the  numbers of abortions which wwe have already established was about a woman choosing, so how can that be bad? Surely we’d like the numbers to go up?

Unless of course abortion really is bad…..I guess now there are studies showing that you have 30% increased likelihood of mental illness that’d be a start to telling us abortion is bad. Of course we have already established that you have to be in danger of being mental anyway to get an abortion.

Viscount Monckton fisks Obama

Viscount Monckton has done the unthinkable, he has challenged the great, the only, the wondrous, Obama and his woolly thinking on Climate Change.

Obama said;

“Few challenges facing America and the world are more urgent than combating climate change. The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear. Sea levels are rising. Coastlines are shrinking. We’ve seen record drought, spreading famine, and storms that are growing stronger with each passing hurricane season. Climate change and our dependence on foreign oil, if left unaddressed, will continue to weaken our economy and threaten our national security.”

Viscount Monckton retorts with facts;

Few challenges facing America and the world are less urgent than combating the non-problem of “global warming”. On all measures, there has been no increase in global mean surface temperatures since 1995; and, according to the University of Alabama at Huntsville, near-surface temperatures in 2008 will be lower than in 1980, 28 years ago, the first complete year of satellite observations. On all measures, global temperatures have been falling for seven full years since late 2001. The January-to-January fall in temperatures between 2007 and 2008 was the greatest since global temperature records were first compiled in 1880, 128 years ago. The rate of new Arctic sea-ice formation in mid-October 2008 was among the fastest since satellite records began almost 30 years ago. There has been no decline whatsoever in the total global extent of sea ice since satellite records began. New records for the extent of northern-hemisphere snow cover were observed by the satellites in the winter of 2001 and again in 2007. This year, many ski resorts are opening early as Arctic weather strikes. Many temperature stations in the northern hemisphere recorded record low temperatures in October/November 2008.

So Obama got it wrong, in fact so spectacularly wrong it beggars belief. One wonders when the rest of the “believers” are going to wake up the the real facts not the manufacturered pseudo-science of the IPCC. Yet these tossers all say that the science is settled, that there is consensus, this most demonstrably is false as Viscount Monckton points outs;

Obama is not correct to say, “The science is not in dispute.” Across all disciplines, some 31,000 scientists approached by the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine in 2007/8 signed a declaration to the effect that “global warming” is not a global crisis and that humankind has very little influence over the climate. A survey of climatologists and scientists in related fields by Van Storch (2005/6) established that a considerable proportion of respondents did not believe the alarmist notions disseminated by Al Gore or the UN climate-change panel. The office of Senator James Inhofe maintains a list of more than 500 scientists in climate and related fields who have made public statements questioning at least one aspect of what has falsely been presented as a scientific “consensus”.

In any event, as the late Michael Crichton used to say, “If it’s consensus, it isn’t science: if it’s science, it isn’t consensus.” Science is not done by consensus: and, even if it were, the evidence is that a very considerable body of scientists both within and beyond climatology have grave doubts about the notion of a significant and damaging human influence on the climate.

Viscount Monckton goes on to destroy any shred of credibility Obama has on this issue, line by line and detail by detail. Warmists and other co-religionists would do well to educate themselves. Of course, for daring to differ in opinion from the Great Obama he will now be vilified. Be that as it may, the truth is the truth and facts are facts.

Vote splitting stats shows the traitors

DPF has enthusiastically blogged about the exciting vote splitting statistics, he even said they were “great fun”.

Ahem…great fun is anything but statistics, even getting the clap from a hooker would be great fun when compared to statistics.

On the other hand though, the vote splitting stats show where the traitors are;

  1. ACT – 72.6% voted for the National candidate, 4.9% Labour cand, 16.4% ACT cand
  2. National – 85.5% National, 3.5% Labour, 4.2% ACT

ACT has 4.9% of their supporters as traitors and National 3.5%. These are the voters that “pretend” to support you and at the same time vote pinko. I can’t be bothered commenting on the pinko parties, who cares about them anyway?

If this was Zimbabwe we would at least be able to find out who they were so as to send them off for a spot of re-education. 😉


Three Stooges: Govt should go with emissions trading scheme

Nielson, Taylor & Clark: Govt should go with emissions trading schemeThe new Government’s decision to put the emissions trading scheme on hold pending a review came as a bolt from the blue. Stakeholders had been led to expect that there would be some changes to the ETS but the proposal to pass legislation… [NZ Herald Politics]

Labour’s stooges are carping on endlessly about the Emmissions Trading Scheme and the moratorium that has been placed on it by National until a select committee can review the science.

these folk are in “result denial” and they still think they are relevant. Sadly for them their access to patsy ministers has been cut off and that is the real reason they are acting like a buch of headless chooks.

As a public service people should direct them to this website so they can digest, slowly, the clearly unpalatable news of the demise of the corrupt and crooked Labour First government.

While we are at it we should similarly point Jeanette to the same page. She seems to think Kiwi’s care more than about 7% about the environment. Her post on Frog Blog is nothing more than a rant and cry.

Movember – Almost there

Movember - Changing the Face of a Men's Health

Almost there folks, with contributions of a $100.00 each from Aaron Gilmore and Craig Foss I am creeping toward the top 50 and currently sitting at 63.

I challenge all other National and Act MP’s to better their donations especially the ones I interviewed for the BlogMobile. Don’t let Cactus Kate and David Farrar show you up.

Let’s show Movember some real Tory Charity. Donate here, and think of the poor Labour MP’s as they suffer under the depression of losing the election.

Remember, all donations over $10 are tax deductible.

The money raised by Movember is used to raise awareness of men’s health issues and donated to the Cancer Society of New Zealand and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand. These two charities will use the money raised to fund research and increase support networks for those affected with prostate cancer and experiencing depression especially those poor Labour MP’s.

Last day of Movember

MovemberToday is the last day of Movember.

Thank you to all my donors. I have made it to the Top 100.

If you would like to help kick me higher then please click the link to donate to my Mo’. I only need $200 to get in the top 50.

Remember, all donations over $10 are tax deductible.

Mike Williams still hasn't resigned

Mike “Fat Tony” Williams has announced that he will resign from the Presidency of the Labour Party this week.

He still hasn’t announced his resignation from all the Government appointments he has recieved as a loyal stooge to Helen Clark.

Some people may ask why he should resign. The answer of course is simple. He has no integrity. As DPF said;

Williams tried to prove that the Prime Minister was NZ’s biggest fraudster. He personally drove and managed an attempted smear campaign. He even blogged about it as Batman. He sent copies of documents to journalists at their home addresses. Having done all that, how ca he expect to be trusted to govern any crown entity on behalf of the new Government?

That is exactly why he should be sacked if he hasn’t yet resigned.

It is expected that Andrew Little will replace “Fat Tony” as president of the Labour making a mockery of the contention that the EPMU has nothing at all to do with the administration of the Labour Party. Andrew Little is adament that he can remain as the boss of teh EPMU at the same time.

I think it may well be time for some reform of the Union industry and a clarification in law as to who/what can be a member of a political party.

I would change the law so that only natural persons can be a member or affliate or any other weasel word used to describe an association of a political party.

Then I would establish a Unions Commission in order to monitor unions. They would be charged with registration of unions and ensuring that they are fiscally prudent with members funds, transparently democratic and acting at all times in the fiduciary and other interests of their members and only their members.

If it was good enough to regulate the Real Estate industry then it should be good enough to regulate the Union Industry. My first appointments to the commission would be Matt McCarten and Laila Harre.

Bill Ralston : Playing the fool with our money

Bill Ralston : Playing the fool with our moneyMessage to John Key and his new Government: No pressure. Well, just a global financial market collapse, a deepening recession, a growing deficit, a crisis meeting with many of the world’s top leaders, shrinking commodity prices… [NZ Herald Politics]

Bill Ralston succinctly explains the tough times that Bill English is having to grapple with in trying to lessen the effects of the recession in new Zealand after inheriting a financial mess from the previous Labour Government.

Though it is useful to look at this, he really is writing about the parlous state of TVNZ and their merry-go-round with our money.

It should not take long for Coleman to wonder why a company that rakes in more than $300 million a year in revenue makes no profit other than the subsidy it gets from him.

His next thought will probably be to question how much of the $79 million funding for the freeview digital channels TVNZ 6 and TVNZ 7 is being used to cross-subsidise the mainstream operations of TV ONE and TV3.

Indeed, especially when you consider that TVNZ 7, I heard, was named that because of the anticipated total audience.

Ralston serves up a good warning to the fiscal fools at TVNZ.

Parallel to the Government’s 100-day plan focusing on priorities like the economy and law and order is a second-tier programme that includes a “reform” of TVNZ and the wider broadcasting industry. I suspect Coleman is determined to screw more dividends out of TVNZ, remove government subsidies from it and make it completely commercial.

Coleman may also wish to make an example of a state-owned company that has been playing silly buggers with taxpayer money.

Heads will roll in one of those periodic TVNZ purges.

I’d start with some of the government stooges on the board.

Iain Dale on Political blogging

Iain Dale has a very good post on political blogging in the UK. There are many similarities between the UK and NZ in terms of the evolution of the political blogosphere.

Especially around readership, MSM reaction to bloggers and revenues from blogging.

Well worth a read, even though it is lengthy.

Cooling on Warming

Andrew Bolt has a short but accurate post worty of posting in its entirety;

As the world’s temperatures and stock markets fall, so does the world’s enthusiasm to spend trillions on not not stopping what might not be bad even if were happening:

There is both growing public reluctance to make personal sacrifices and a distinct lack of enthusiasm for the major international efforts now underway to battle climate change, according to findings of a poll of 12,000 citizens in 11 countries’… The 11 countries surveyed were Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Malaysia, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States.

(Via Instapundit.)


Yet another editorial on global warming from the alarmist Sunday Age that doesn’t mention the most relevant fact of all.

Indeed, it seems that New Zealand in having a Select Committee review the silly and unnecessary Emmissions Trading Scam may well be leading the world in attempting to halt a dangerous new religion. It is time these new religionists were exposed.
