Does Snopes Deny Clear-Cut Science?

Published

on

A popular ‘fact-checking’ site recently posted that abortion was not the leading cause of death in 2018.

“A heartbreaking reminder about the prevalence of abortion, statistics compiled by Worldometers indicate that there were nearly 42 million abortions world-wide in 2018. The independent site collects data from governments and other reputable organizations and then reports the data, along with estimates and projections, based on those numbers” according to LifeSiteNews.

A Snopes article declared these statistics are “problematic” because it take a “political position” on the issue. The article claims that abortion should be viewed as a medical procedure as opposed to an induced death. According to the article, “Heather Boonstra, director of public policy for the reproductive health research organization Guttmacher Institute, told us:

“Abortion is a legal, constitutionally protected medical procedure in the United States. It’s not considered a cause of death by CDC, WHO and other leading authorities, and statistics on induced abortion are excluded in the CDC’s national fetal-death statistics.”

This statement from Boonstra is ‘problematic’. First, does the fact that abortion is legal make it morally acceptable? Slavery was also once legal in the United States. Second, she makes the claim that the CDC does not consider abortion to be a cause of death, yet abortion statistics are listened under “Morbidity and Morality Weekly Report” on the CDC website (see below).

Snopes also makes the argument that because the number of abortions per year has outweighed the number of deaths from diseases and other medical issues for many years, the claim that abortion is the leading cause of death is flawed.  Since it is annual reoccurring news and “not a new dynamic”, world-wide abortions should not be labeled as a cause of death, but rather a simple medical procedure.

Big League Politics reached out to Snopes to ask why they disagree with the universally accepted fact that a heartbeat constitutes life and the absence of a heartbeat equates death.  David Mikkelson of Snopes.com did not respond to inquiries.

Does rejecting the scientific proof that the presence of a heartbeat indicates life, make Snopes anti-science? You decide.

Illinois Court Approves Extradition of 17-Year-Old Kyle Rittenhouse to Wisconsin on Murder Charges

Michelle Malkin has reported the unfortunate news.

Right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin broke some very unfortunate news for anyone who hopes to see justice for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, the shooter who became an American hero after shooting two ANTIFA terrorists in self-defense at a riot in Kenosha, Wisc. in August.

Malkin has been publishing updates about Rittenhouse’s case throughout the day:

Unfortunately for Rittenhouse, the motion filed by his lawyers to prevent extradition was denied by the Lake County Circuit Court on Friday. It is feared that this will lead to Rittenhouse receiving a politically-motivated kangaroo court trial in which he will be tried as an adult.

“According to Illinois law, this Illinois court shall not rule on the State of Wisconsin’s statutes that charge a 17-year-old as an adult. According to Illinois law, an Illinois court cannot opine on the safety or alleged lack thereof of Rittenhouse in the State of Wisconsin,” the court stated in their decision

“These questions…are not to be addressed in an Illinois extradition proceeding. These are matters that can be raised in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, through pre-trial proceedings or during trial,” they added.

Malkin posted the full extradition ruling on her Twitter account, noting that Rittenhouse’s legal team is already working on an appeal:

Big League Politics has reported about Rittenhouse’s capture and how the establishment wants to make an example of him so patriots have no recourse but to submit to ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorism:

The attorney for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday to defend his client against a smear campaign meant to destroy his reputation as he faces first-degree murder charges for shooting three communists at a riot in Kenosha, Wisc. last week.

“This is 100 percent self-defense,” Rittenhouse’s lawyer John Pierce said. “The only individuals Kyle shot were the three individuals attacking him and putting him at risk. This is a 17-year-old kid, this is amazing what he did.”

Pierce explained that Rittenhouse was being menaced by pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum, who is now dead. Rosenbaum was “leading the attack” and “began to assault him from behind, attempted to take his weapon, take his firearm, and Kyle, when he turned, he instantaneously had no choice but to defend himself by firing because he was in imminent danger of serious bodily harm or death.”

“They began screaming that Kyle needed to be killed, and they were going to kill him. They started relentlessly hunting him as prey as he ran down the street attempting to retreat,” Pierce said.

Pierce said that the individuals who were attacking Rittenhouse ought to be charged, and the fact that Rittenhouse is in jail right now is a disgrace.

“Where are the charges for aggravated assault against Kyle Rittenhouse? Where are the charges for arson in our cities? Where are the charges for rioting? Where are the charges for crossing state lines? And where are the charges against the people who are funding this activity?” Pierce asked.

“Why is [Kyle] the one sitting in jail tonight as forces within this country sickeningly attempt to find a way to bring harm to him while he’s in detention?” he continued.

“It is sickening,” Carlson responded.

Rittenhouse is in the fight for his life, and the court system is not likely to do him any favors as he struggles to reclaim his lost freedom.
