‘Men should be able to veto abortions’: Fox News host gripes that women want ‘all the control’

Published

on

Fox News Medical A-Team member and resident psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow argued on Tuesday that “men should be able to veto women’s abortions.”

In an interview with radio host Howard Stern this week, actress Sofia Vergara broke her silence on ex-fiancé Nick Loeb’s lawsuit to take control of her frozen embryos. Vergara said that Loeb should not have the right to use her embryos to become a single father because a child “needs a loving relationship of parents that get along, that don’t hate each other.” She also pointed out that Loeb had signed a contract that said the embryos would only be brought to term with the “consent” of both parties.

Loeb wrote in a New York Times op-ed last week that he deserved to take control of the embryos because it was “not just about saving lives; it is also about being pro-parent.”

On Tuesday, Ablow asserted that Vergara did not have “2 percent credibility in this matter.”

“The bottom line is, why would a woman’s right to decide what to do with a frozen embryo trump a man’s right every time?” he asked. “If he wants to bring these embryos to term, good for him. He wants to parent. If he wants to have them adopted, good for him. It’s not a coin toss. It’s whoever wants that potential being to survive. That’s who wins.”

Ablow suggested that the Modern Family actress was a hypocrite for acting like a liberal, but “when it comes to her choices in life, she wants all the control.”

“Not very modern, Sofia,” he opined. “You know, what their agreement is on paper should not determine the fate of a child in the world.”

“You know, I’ve been outspoken on this,” the doctor continued. “I think men should be able to veto women’s abortions if they’re willing to care for the child after it’s born.”

Singer and songwriter pens ballad about ‘bunker boy Donald Trump’

Published

on

Singer/songwriter Courtney Jaye, whose album "Love and Forgiveness" was named as one of the Top 50 Albums of 2013 by American Songwriter, has penned an epic ballot dedicated to President Donald Trump.

It was reported Sunday that Trump was rushed to the White House bunker on Friday evening as a few hundred protesters surrounded the building. As the weekend progressed, more and more protesters have come to stand in opposition to police violence and a White House they feel isn't doing enough to stop it.

Trump has tried to claim that he was really just "inspecting" the bunker, but it went down like a lead balloon.

‘Trump became what we feared’: New Lincoln Project ad accuses Trump of using the Bible as a prop to boost his polls

Published

on

A brutal new ad from the GOP group The Lincoln Project called "War Zone" is attacking President Donald Trump for becoming what Americans have feared he would.

He didn't come out of hiding this week to help calm the nation or to bring Americans together.

"He wasn't there to offer words of calm and comfort," the ad said. "Instead, he became what we all feared. Evoked the worst of our past. Threatened our governors and states. He ordered our own soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan to flood the streets, instructing them to turn against Americans. Used churches and the Holy Bible as political props. He didn't invoke the Lord to give us wisdom, but to boost his polls."
