Planned Parenthood videos? How about abortions in Cuba?

(My new Babalu Blog)

As we watch the latest Planned Parenthood video, we are reminded of a few realities about abortion in Cuba.
“According the Cuban government statistics, 60.2 percent of all pregnancies on the island end in abortion.This is the highest number of any nation in the Western Hemisphere. Other attempts at an empirical analysis of Cuban abortion show 130,000 live births with just less than 85,000 abortions in a typical year. (South Korea has the lowest birthrate in the industrialized world, due to the government wishing to boost GDP figures, gendercide against females and the fact that abortion is a money maker for Korean hospitals.)Under Soviet communism, the average Russian woman might have had as many as 13 abortions in her lifetime.In Cuba, abortions, like funerals, are actually funded by the government. (“The abortion is the baby’s funeral,” many Cubans say.) Those who have opposed abortion in Cuba have been mercilessly beat up by the state intelligence apparatus.”
We are reminded that Dr Oscar Elias Biscet got in trouble for refusing to perform a chemical abortion.
As we watch these horrific videos, we think of the thousands of Cuban babies aborted over the years!
We discussed abortions in Cuba on Wednesday's show:

Why doesn't President Obama address the nation about the climate change crisis?

(My new American Thinker post)

President Obama is flying solo again, as The Wall Street Journal tells us: 

Rarely do American Presidents display the raw willfulness that President Obama did Monday in rolling out his plan to reorganize the economy in the name of climate change. Without a vote in Congress or even much public debate, Mr. Obama is using his last 18 months to dictate U.S. energy choices for the next 20 or 30 years. This abuse of power is regulation without representation.
The so-called Clean Power Plan commands states to cut carbon emissions by 32% (from 2005 levels) by 2030. This final mandate is 9% steeper than the draft the Environmental Protection Agency issued in June 2014.
The damage to growth, consumer incomes and U.S. competitiveness will be immense—assuming the rule isn’t tossed by the courts or rescinded by the next Administration.
Yes, what about the damage to the US economy?

What about the damage to the US Constitution and the presidency? 

Let me make this suggestion to President Obama: 

1)  Address the nation and tell us about the threat of climate change, in much the same as previous presidents have spoken about problems.    Climate change is either a crisis or a lot of "hot air".   Treat it like a crisis if he believes that it is;

2)  Tell us how a failure to act will devastate our economy, national security and affect people all over the world; and

3)  Send Congress a proposal that he can eventually sign into law.     

Why won't he do it?   Why won't he make his case to the American people?  

My guess is that President Obama is avoiding Congress (and public opinion) because he knows that he's got a very weak hand.   

In other words, all of this climate change doom and gloom sounds good until you actually put it to a debate.
