Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 

"Pro-Lifers" have caused so much unneeded horrific pain in the world. God damn.

[ NEWS ] 11th century Viking broadsword to make up to $205,000 at Christie’s
A Viking broadsword looted during the battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066 is to auction at Christie’s London this summer with an estimate of £80,000-120,000 ($136,873-205,309).
The lot is thought to have been taken by a member of the de Bohun family, who would later carry the ancestral sword during the first war of Scottish independence in the 14th century.
Dernagh O’Leary, a spokesperson for Christie’s, told the BBC: "Whilst it cannot be proved, it is not at all inconceivable that the blade of the present sword was captured or taken as a trophy by de Bohun at Hastings and was later remounted to become a family sword.
"The present sword, whilst not being a war sword, would have served as a clear badge of identity with its gold and enamelled coat of arms on the pommel and eminently more practical as a side arm around camp when not mounted and armed for battle.
"It is therefore entirely possible that this sword was present at Bannockburn in June 1314, if not actually on the field of battle."
The lot is incredibly rare, its age and history making it one of the most significant British artefacts to come to auction in recent years.

this is how you make “gay jokes” folks

having two parents of any gender would suck because when u need one of them you’d be like “mom” and the wrong one will reply and you have to go “not you the OTHER one” and thats why if i marry a girl and we have kids she can be mom and i will be optimus prime

optimus prime
