Olympic gymnast Simone Biles said Monday evening that she is “very much” pro-abortion as “someone who was in the foster care system.” (Snip) Biles also criticized those who suggest putting a baby up for adoption, saying, “It’s not that easy & coming from someone who was in the foster care system TRUST me. & adoption is expensive…I’m just saying. Foster care system is broken & it’s TOUGH. Especially on the kids & young adults who age out.”


Because others might suffer a tough childhood like the one she had, they shouldn't be born?!

She has no clue how nonsensical this logic is. Had her mother believed as Simone believes, the gymnastic records would all be in someone else's name.

Absolutely crazy and she totally destroys her own position. She is an example of an un-aborted baby who despite a bad childhood sailed to the top of the world. Now it's about time to sail her back to the bottom.

How ironic, from someone who was adopted into a family that helped her fulfill her dreams. Her point about foster care doesn't really address the choice between adoption and abortion, which involves adoption at birth in most cases. Children in foster care, herself included, are there because the parent is unable to care for their child for whatever reason. Many are not eligible for adoption because the parents' rights are not terminated. Adoption is of course more difficult for older children but is suggesting they should have been aborted really the solution?

Who asked you? Take you little bronze medal and fade into obscurity. I am sick of you and your drama. If you feel so strongly, maybe you should consider self-aborting. Whatever. Begone.

It's embarrassing that Simone is another high profile Catholic who supports abortion publicly. What an impact she might have had if she had a pro-life message. Given her personal circumstances she could very well have been a great candidate to be aborted. The world would have been deprived of her talent, strength and spirit. How many, just like her, will never get the chance to show the world their talents? Maybe, instead of being good at a sport they excelled in medicine, or something else that would have benefited all of mankind?

Either Simone is saying she wishes she had never been born, or her talent / brains ratio was way too heavily weighted to the talent side (and she doesn't grasp the implications of her statement). Before this summer, Simone was a symbol of hope for countless poor, minority kids. But now a symbol of despair.

She's lucky she was adopted by educated people who gave her a decent education, and the money to spend on gymnastic lessons. She doesn't have that inner city accent so prevalent with so many blacks. There are no "we be's", or ebonics in her speech. If you just heard her speak without seeing her, one would think she was a California surfer girl. She didn't get that from being raised in a poor environment.

So Simone you're saying that since you WERE put in foster care you should NOT have been BORN OR since you WERE born you SHOULD have been aborted OR since you were NOT aborted you should NOT be in foster care OR since you were NOT aborted and WERE put in foster care that you've "BEEN THERE."

Who didn't see This coming? Perplexingly, These rantings come from a woman received so much more than so many others. Sound like anyone you know, Barry? It was apparent in Tokyo that she was 'off her meds', as it were. And yet, what don't we know on that score? Nevertheless, we all are witness to the Faustian Fauscist Bargain she has made with the race and religion - baiting Misery Industry. For cheap perks and celebrity, she betrays her family, as well as the supportive lifestyle and religion they afforded her. As soon as she signed in blood, the mediots kicked the successful gymnasts to the curb; all the clips are of the prior glories of an imploding star. The media buffoons tell her she's ''immortal''. She flunked out of the Olympics. Now. she flunks out of Humanity.

So they’re better off dead? Does she think that applies to herself? Take a look at Dr. Ben Carson and Justice Clarence Thomas - 2 black men who had very difficult childhoods yet prevailed through courage and perseverance. Imagine all of the children who would not have survived without Dr. Carson’s pediatric neurology expertise. Imagine the SCOTUS without the brilliance of Justice Thomas. Simone needs to get off her pity pot, grow up, shut up and get off the stage.

New Zealand is closing its borders for the remainder of the year, continuing the country’s embrace of a total isolationist strategy in its fight against the coronavirus. On Thursday, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the country’s borders “will never be the same after” the pandemic, likening the situation to the 9/11 attacks. “Just like after 9/11, the border will never be the same after Covid … things can change, but that doesn’t mean we can’t adapt to them in a way that eventually feels normal again,” said Ardern.(Snip)Since the start of the pandemic, New Zealand adopted a strict border protection policy, which resulted in only 26 coronavirus-related deaths.

The U.S. Capitol Police officer who fatally shot Ashli Babbitt on Jan. 6 during the insurrection was cleared Monday after an internal review concluded the action may have spared the lives of lawmakers and staffers who had barricaded themselves inside the building. "The officer’s actions were consistent with the officer’s training and (U.S. Capitol Police) policies," the agency's inquiry found. The agency declined to identify the officer. Federal prosecutors decided in April not to pursue criminal charges in the case. Some who supported the Capitol siege by rioters angry about the outcome of the presidential election cast Babbitt as a martyr to the conservative cause.

The majority of Americans no longer believe President Joe Biden is competent in his role as the Commander-in-Chief, according to a CBS News poll. Fifty-one percent of the respondents said Biden is not competent in his position as president. This is compared to only 49 percent who said he is. Additionally, the poll found that 52 percent of the respondents did not feel the president has been focused. The poll was taken during and after the fall of the now-Taliban-controlled Kabul, Afghanistan, when Biden botched the U.S. troops’ withdrawal from the country. With that, 53 percent of the respondents said they disagree with the way Biden withdrew the troops.

"We went to Afghanistan for the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan, as well as... getting Osama bin Laden. And we did."
