    HOBBS, N.M. - A newborn baby left in a bag in a southern New Mexico dumpster over the weekend was found alive. The teenage mother reportedly confessed. The baby is alive and stable Sunday night in a Lubbock Hospital. The 18-year-old mother, Alexis Avila of Hobbs, has been charged with attempted murder and felony child abuse. But who knows what would have happened to her - or the baby - if it weren't for three random people and a well-placed surveillance camera. "Something wasn't right, I saw the officers' faces, and they did not look right. They really didn't,” said...

    Comments: garymichael 12/08/21 - 12:07AM If a woman wants/needs to abort a pregnancy she should be able to do it safely and quickly and without nosy neighbors trying to collect a bounty. If the Supreme Court allows an atrocity like the Texas Law then they will diminish the reputation and authority of the Supreme Court because people will ignore the Texans and just go to another state and have an abortion if it's needed. Or as this article points out, they will take an abortion pill. Doing that those same people will be thumbing their noses at the law and...

Fun fact, no terrorists were killed in that exercise. Yet even with all that death, blood and gore, Joe Biden has not satiated his lust for blood, now he goes after Texas for daring to put a stop to the murder of unborn babies.

But they have turned strict and dogmatic on all matters related to COVID. They treat the unvaccinated as sinners beneath contempt. “Let’s start replacing ‘vaccine hesitancy’ with ‘vaccine stupidity’ or ‘vaccine selfishness,’” says Michael Sean Winters at the National Catholic Reporter.Pope Francis has joined the collectivists in casting vaccine use as compulsory. “I believe that morally everyone must take the vaccine,” he has said.
