Stuff I didn’t know before…

Like…

New Brunswick is a province that is stuck in the Dark Ages when it comes to access to abortions. An abortion must be be deemed “medically neccesary” before it can be performed.

And… that Beelzebub is alive and active in Fredericton.

As for the first new piece of knowledge…

I learned this upon hearing a CBC piece about the Morgentaler Clinic in Fredericton performing the clinic’s final abortions before it closes at the end of this month.

The July 31 closure was announced in April by the clinic, which said it can’t afford to continue performing abortions without provincial funding.

Yet, it appears that good has prevailed over the forces of evil in this Maritime city… Which brings me to the second thing I added to my mental library:

Some New Brunswickers, such as Kelly Seale, want less access to abortions, not more.

“Soon as I walk by there, I feel a very strong feeling of the devil. Yeah,” said Seale, who works at an anti-abortion centre next door to the clinic.

Yeah, the devil.

Yeah.

Gotta love knowledge.

I’m increasingly concerned….

…about what we are going to see as an end game of the Ukraine crisis.

The States is upping the rhetoric, as is the UK. But other European leaders are remaining fairly quiet for fear of Russian repercussions – economic or otherwise.

Putin is in the regional expansion game for the long haul, kids. This isn’t going to just disappear. And I wouldn’t doubt for a moment that he wouldn’t be above shooting down one of his OWN passenger jets as an excuse to launch a ground and artillery attack into eastern Ukraine.
