These are Sick Fucks.23 February, 2009
UPDATE (133524FEB09): Upon further study (with help from comments) I have decided that this is either a very well done Poe, or a very scary site designed to scare women away from health care. I lean more toward the latter explanation. I now doubt that the site actually has such a database. The site, most likely, is an attempt to terrorise women into making a decision based upon guilt or fear, rather than what is best for her. If so, it may be legal, but they are sick fucks. However, the mere fact that it is believable says much about how insane things have become in the United States.
A website, called AbortionTracker.com (warning — this is a very sick site), has taken upon itself this mission: “We wish to help make the world a better, more conservative, wholesome, place, by God, so we will always protect your personal privacy above all else.” Actually, that is their privacy statement. And the privacy is promised only for those who invade the privacy of women who legally visit women’s health centers and send the information to AbortionTracker.
From their home page (with my angry snark):
Since the Supreme Court ruled in 1973 that the murdering (that would be legal and safe ending of a pregnancy) of unborn children (called, in the real world, foetuses) should be legal (because why should the government of a secular democracy use a religious standard to write laws), mothers have had the right to exterminate their children (again, without the inflammatory language, that would be an abortion) without so much as a second thought (come on, assholes — do you really believe that anyone other than a psychopath, sociopath, or True Believer Christian can have an abortion without thinking about the process and weighing the pros and cons) or the mandatory use of a “real name” (does anyone know that that means?). Every branch of government has heard the will (which, in virtually every survey, shows a minority in favour of legal abortions without restrictions, and a majority in favour in most conditions) of the people (I guess the people of which they speak are the True Believers) ever since, and everyone agrees this gruesome (knock it off with the inflammatory talk, please) ruling will be overturned very soon (not if the United States Supreme Court follows both the United States Constitution and precedent) .
But it’s still illegal in many (it is illegal in all states) states to bomb abortion clinics (which are women’s health clinics and they do far more than abortions — contraception, treatment of STDs, education, etc.). AbortionTracker to the rescue (of AbortionTracker’s cashflow)! We are an organization that has agreed to back off the issue, for now (bullshit! you have created an entire site dedicated to releasing medical records of women who have visited clinics). We still recognize murder (abortion) for what it is (a legal medical procedure, just like when I chose to spend three months in a cast after having my MCL rebuilt), and we permit the rights of infidels (that would be, I guess, everyone who does not think exactly like they do) to slaughter (have an abortion) their babies (foetuses) until the government comes to its senses again (which means turning America into a Christian theocracy).
For now, let’s just say that women do have the right to have abortions done inside them (where else would they be done?). Fine, but for now, we have the right to tell you who these murderers are (No, you do don’t; these records are protected by federal law, as are all medical records. For instance, I don’t have the right to see the records of the people maintaining this horror to see how many times they have been treated for STDs and drug abuse).
Our unique (and illegal) search database pulls information from a variety of 3rd party (criminals) and proprietary sources to compile a full, comprehensive list of every woman who has had an abortion procedure performed in the United States and Canada, dating back to 1940, in many cases.
Simply join our network, submit your personal information, and once you are approved, we will grant you access to our cutting edge, patent pending system. Before you know it, you’ll know your friends and neighbors for who they really are (Which the member can then use for, say, blackmail, or just to feel superior (can you imagine what a fundogelical church would do with a database like this to blackmail or purify the flock?)).
These fuckers are also 100% accurate:
Do you think your name has incorrectly been added to our database? We don’t think so (because thinking really is not our strong suit), and we should know, because our deep-file research (basically, names handed to us by snitches breaking federal law) has been tireless and unfaltering, and we are eager to stand by any of the results that appear on this site.
If you believe your name has been added to our database without merit, please consider that there are no (ZERO) errors in our database (has anyone, anywhere, anytime ever seen a completely error free database?), and we have proven as much in several courts of law and as many circuit courts of appeal. However, if you’d still like to tangle with us, here are the considerations to bear in mind: You killed a baby (no, it really is called an abortion, and it really is a foetus until viable), so you have no vote or voice in congress (anyone who has had a certain medical procedure has lost the right to vote or be represented? When did that law pass?), whether in this world or the next (and there probably is no next world, so go pound sand).
You have basically no recourse against us (because crazy people who hear God(s) talking to them are above the law, right?). We know we’ve done right (in our insane world) by reporting you for the murdering actions (legal medical procedure) you’ve done, so we’re golden in the eyes of God (because God(s) (or some other voice in their head, or their minister) tells them). We’ve also setup all our critical operations in nations friendly to our cause (please name them (I’m guessing Iran or the Vatican (mostly because I cannot think of any other theocracy out there))), but if you still want to take action, here’s what you can do:
and then list some ideas, including how these sick fucks will get you.
I tried to peruse the entire site. I couldn’t. Each page, each paragraph, at which I looked was worse.
I know that there are some lawyers who visit my site. How can a scam like this be legal? How can a private Christianist egomaniacal group get away with asking people to violate federal medical privacy laws?
These people are sick fucks. And they embody the goals of the modern Republican Party and the radical religious right. And they scare the shit out of me.
