Tear Gas Is an Abortifacient. Why Won’t the Anti-Abortion Movement Oppose It?

A couple of years ago, when I was newly pregnant and reporting in the West Bank, some of my local colleagues insisted that I skip covering a protest at an Israeli checkpoint. At first, I was resistant to letting pregnancy stand in the way of my work, but they knew from experience that there might be tear gas, and tear gas, they said, causes miscarriages.

They were right: though rigorous studies are few, there is evidence that tear gas is an abortifacient. In 2011, Chile temporarily suspended its use after a University of Chile studylinked it to miscarriage and fetal harm. Investigating the use of tear gas in Bahrain in 2012, Physicians for Human Rights found that local doctors were reporting increased numbers of miscarriages in exposed areas. And UN officials have connected tear gas to miscarriages in the Palestinian territories.

This means it’s likely that police in Ferguson, Missouri, have been spraying abortion-causing chemicals on crowds of civilians. Recently at TheNation.com, Dani McClain wrote about the killing of black youth as a reproductive justice issue, one that goes to the heart of the rights of parents to raise their children in peace, safety and dignity. She’s correct, of course, but if the anti-abortion movement were actually concerned about the well-being of the unborn, then the violence in Ferguson would be a pro-life issue as well.

I have been saying for a long time that the republican and tea parties are just mouthpieces for the American white supremacist movement.  Based on a hunch, I decided to go to the official site of the KKK and read the platform of the “Knight’s Party.” You can verify that this IS the official platform of the Ku Klux Klan by clicking hereand visiting the hate group’s official…

Let’s leave this here.

As these “facts” come out, it doesn’t even matter any more. People don’t care about the truth. They see Black people as thugs deserving of death, nothing will change their mind.

If this even goes to trial, the jury will look just like Trayvon Martin’s (jury of peers my ass).

How can you even have discussions with people who don’t care about facts. These same people profess have morals and their bankrupt.

Darren Wilson could literally say he’s guilty and people would still not believe him and think he had every right to kill Mike Brown.

5 Amazing Scenes from Otherwise Horrible Movies

#5. X-Men: The Last Stand: Angel’s Messed-Up Childhood

An opening scene establishes that the inventor of the Mutant Cure was inspired by the discovery that his son Warren (the future X-Man Angel) had a mutation that caused him to grow wings. Now, this could have been a very simple and forgettable sequence, but X3 actually handles it very dramatically by having the man walk in on his son trying to hack the mutation off of his back. … Why does [Angel] go to such horrifying extremes? Because he is terrified of his mutant-prejudiced father, who takes one look at his child’s maimed body and blood all over the floor, and only says: “Oh, God. Not you.” The whole scene is barely a minute long, but in that short time it shows you exactly what X-Men: The Last Stand could have been: a drama about struggling with one’s identity.

The young lady that was shot in the head by a police officer is still waiting to be interviewed by the police department

Ferguson Police claimed that 4 to 5 Black males conducted a drive by which resulted in a White woman being shot in the head. (Here, Here, Here)

(they’ve edited the articles to take out the white part and that she was killed hehehe)

Residents knew it was BS. 

Turns out Mya was shot by a police officer. The department forced surgeons to take the bullet out and took the bullet for “Ballistics”

Over a week later, she still has yet to be contacted by the department

Do not let her story go ignored
