7 Quick Takes Friday (set #94)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: Carmina Burana as Carl Orff never envisioned it (this is a hoot). The nature of marriage (apparently most people have no clue). Infanticide, not a bridge too far for Planned Parenthood. A Planned Parenthood in Delaware streams seriously injured patients to local hospitals. They also do not like this to be noticed. New protections for life in Spain (not what you might hope). PETA vs. Planned Parenthood, who kills the most?

Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana has been re-imagined as an Ode to Sleep Deprived Parents. The Sydney Symphony ran a “Say it with Carmina” contest and selected this entry. You will recognize the tune and love the lyrics:

The nature of marriage, a reminder for those who have forgotten…

A lobbyist for Planned Parenthood has testified before the Florida legislature to promote “post birth abortion” (a/k/a infanticide). What is really amazing, is that some people *still* think this organization is all about women’s health.

On the issue of killing people, do not assume that PP harms only babies. Every woman who undergoes the violence of abortion suffers long-term mental and physical consequences. Some suffer immediate trauma, such as these 2 incidents at the *same* Planned Parenthood abortuary in Delaware within 10 days of each other:

Incidents, such as the above, occur all the time and tarnish the false image Planned Parenthood tries to project. I expect that they will build future facilities with fully enclosed ambulance bays in order to conceal the loading of victims. Until then, they will just have to improvise:

In a bold move, Spain has enacted a new law to protect life from the moment of conception and ban fetal experimentation. Before you rejoice, this law protecting life applies only to monkeys. Humans, alas, are not afforded these same protections. It must be a matter of priority. Catholic Lane has the story: Planet of the Apes.

Speaking of monkey business, Matthew Archbold noticed that PETA kills 90% of those entrusted to its care. This is shocking to those who believed that their focus was life, not death. The interesting part is (depending on how you look at the numbers – a quibble only of degree) that PP does the same thing, but worse. “Planned Parenthood is kicking PETA’s a$$ when it comes to killing those whom it claims to defend.” See Matt’s piece PETA Takes Heat, Planned Parenthood Keeps on Keepin’ On.

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
