The bill is not about infanticide, it’s about babies who are already dying
One response to your “infanticide” story: “Democrats are ‘taking a barbaric position,” according to Rep. Steve Scalise, the House minority whip. Because, see, Democrats think women should have the right to decide, in consultation with their doctors, to terminate a second or third-trimester pregnancy in cases where the mother’s life is in danger, or there are fetal abnormalities so severe that a baby would die, likely in pain, within hours of birth. And when a baby is born in such a terminal condition, Democrats don’t think that parents and doctors should be forced to resuscitate so that it can suffer for slightly longer.
Dr. Jen Gunter did just that in The New York Times, writing about her own child who died after being born premature. As an obstetrician, she knew what it meant when she went into labor at 22 weeks while pregnant with triplets. She was alone in the bathroom when she delivered her son into her own hands. And when nurses and doctors arrived, she knew there was nothing they could do. Gunter was being treated to try to save her other two sons — who did survive — when “a nurse parted everyone and brought him to me wrapped in a blanket. He was dying, she said. Did I want to hold him?” That was the real choice she had. Hold her dying son, or not. Any medical intervention on him would only have prolonged the inevitable.

What about churches?
I agree with your outrage that “what universal Pre-K is all about is our schools getting our children at the earliest possible age so they can start brainwashing them,” as you said on Monday. While I agree with that POV, I’m wondering if you hold the same outrage at the multitude of churches offering free Sunday school that brainwash our children with an invisible magic friend in the sky and his Middle-Eastern socialist son? This creates masses of humans who think that their personal beliefs are every bit as true as empirical fact backed by scientific data. Does that bother you equally?

WA public schools make for weak, unmotivated adults
Glad I sent my kids to private school. Everything the public schools are doing turns kids against their parent(s) and turns them into victims of society. It weakens their ability to compete in the marketplace. Not my kids. They were taught to respect adults, take responsibility for their lives, and study hard in school. My kids are now educated and successfully employed in a competitive work environment where the interview process now separates the wheat from the chaff. Many of my friends sent their kids to private school. Their kids are doctors, lawyers, teachers, nurses, and engineers. None of them are living at home.
My friends who sent their kids to public schools are not doing so well. One works at Safeway. One works as greeter at Century Link. One friend’s son graduated from an alternative Seattle public school, then chose to go to Evergreen college in Olympia. He is now a minimum wage barista living with several other unmotivated friends in an ugly Seattle apartment. With his pretend degree, he has no opportunities of moving up, no motivation to improve, and no prospects to meet someone and start a family. Great kid, but going nowhere.

Why are we teaching preschoolers about gender fluidity?
Dori, when I was in school in the 60s, our sex education, at least in my case, was “0,” other than it’s a sin. Now we’re telling preschoolers their biological makeup is irrelevant, they can be whatever sex they want to be before they know what sex or their body parts are all about.
So glad I own a burial plot, it’s the one place I won’t have to hear this garbage.

Hi Dori, thanks for the uplifting story about the premature baby. Thank God for KIRO that allows stories such as that to go on the air. For some time now I have realized that while the big social media platforms have a monopoly for the time being, they don’t own the internet. It is only a matter of time before some enterprising individual will develop their own social media platform that does not shove the “Progressive” narrative down everybody’s throats. Actually, they could implement it much faster since the development of these platforms has already taken place.
