Or something called the born alive infant protection act.
That child is a person.
And it's entitled to all protections -- federal law.
-- were discussing the trial doctor Kermit has now in Philadelphia accused of really miss managing and carrying out some gruesome procedures.
At his clinic the National Abortion Federation counters the statements that have been made about Patrick has now by saying.
This particular facility in Philadelphia is an Al liar and not typical of the high quality abortion care provided by the majority of -- worship providers in this country.
Let's bring our panel back -- to talk about it check -- with you because this trial is playing out as we see some states and passing the most restrictive abortion -- we've seen in decades.
-- and I think they're gonna.
Draw additional support from the revelations in this case the prosecution -- and we should always say that everyone is innocent until proven guilty.
We haven't heard the defense case yet that the prosecution is laid on some very strong.
Evidence including eyewitnesses physical evidence the last of the Dave -- themselves.
And I must say it's it's it's doubly shocking to read how this case was discovered in the first place apparently the FBI raided his office.
Because he was suspected of running -- narcotics.
Operation out of this office as well they found 250000.
Dollars in cash.
In his apartment it's it's a very sickening case -- well.
And it hit.
Very creepy case and a very -- human being if these if these charges are true.
Who would and I am think we've made clear here what would happen is these.
Were born essentially alive and then they stabbed him to kill them I mean it and to me it's a broader there is a broader story here and that's about.
Mid to late term abortions these are not -- fan -- -- -- -- these are babies.
And and this doctor even -- that one of them could walk to a bus stop allegedly.
In it and he was preying on -- vulnerable population that felt like they didn't have options and I go back and I think it's an adoptive mother.
If we had more.
If we -- adoption out there as as an option where women could heroically and give birth to take their children to term.
And placed -- in a good home do you know the numbers of domestic content drop adoptions have dropped so low that they've stopped counting them the government has actually stopped counting them.
And -- and yet we have over a million abortions a year.
I think the production that's when my mom is eleven and your kids so I -- it and and seen -- work in a lot of ways are.
That talk continues of course we will keep an eye on it.
It any kind of says and embassies are passing these very restrictive lost eight North Dakota.
Their second house.
A law that would essentially outlaw abortion by passing a bill defining life is starting at the moment of conception we'll keep an -- and that no clears on whether or not the governor's going to sign it.
-- that's onto our next topic.
This sort of that -- Kelly had tonight that's been out there on the Internet it's been all over the place about the Department of Homeland Security making massive -- of ammunition we got some facts and I Charles.
He had I think it should reassure.
Those people are watching us from now from the cave.
In the Iraqis were they are provisions for a year or two.
And we really -- and then you I wanna -- hands without waiting for the Obama couldn't tell.
Which apparently is not gonna come.
Senator Coburn who isn't exactly a liberal.
Has said number one -- none of them out of ammunition is less than in previous years -- -- to.
It is about a tenth of the ceiling that the government DHS has allowed.
And and the last point is.
That the the ammunition.
That people are saying is now in short supply.
Is being used buys them that DHS for an obvious.
Is being abused for the -- innovations like the border security agents who have to go to the range.
A lot and stay -- -- -- mean everything.
That pans out and I hate to disappoint conspiracy.
Theorists are gonna have to come up.
With something new and they will.
They will and senator Coburn told me that he satisfied with the answers yes so far but he's not done yet looking at that so we will stay with him on that are right.
Winners and losers of the week everybody wanted to hear this -- start with you.
Well I gave my winner of the week to President Obama because I think he came off OK and Israel Israel as a country where.
Public opinion has not been terribly favorable to him he seems to have gotten -- good reception and smoothed over some of the rough patches recent Canada's relationship with Bibi Netanyahu.
So he's my winner my loser is Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany.
Whose government really kind of made a hash out of this crisis in Cyprus took some things.
There was going to be a problem and made a lot worse and now everybody in Europe hates Germany even more than they did before.
-- -- At my winner would be at BB Netanyahu.
That -- this president this US president had probably the worst relations.
With -- -- -- really per prime minister hit historically ever.
That he was forced to come over to Israel -- and pay homage not just Israel but I think by extension to be -- My loser would be Dianne Feinstein who.
Really had high hopes for passing an assault weapons ban particularly after the shooting of schoolchildren in Connecticut.
And the democratic leadership and told her sorry.
-- -- -- -- -- I agree there -- there is the prime minister of Israel but slightly different reason.
That Obama essentially said that a Palestinian leadership.
Stop using the excuse of settlements.
It's a way -- you not to enter into negotiations and you should.
And in the end settlement issue will be decided -- resolved if and when -- That there is a peace agreement so it's an irrelevancy the losing your Russian gangsters.
Especially the ones who have a stuffed a lot of very ill gotten -- in banks and -- in Cyprus.
That they are gonna take a real hair cut one way or the other.
And I have to say it couldn't it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of miscreants.
OK on that note I -- get an act this week to my -- winners the same this week so Liberty University men's basketball team go flames.
Alumni they lots of their first game in the big dance and they mated pair they had a tough season and played a lot of heart.
Cell thing and you -- your system the winners -- I that's it for the panel state.
