Kiran in Paradise

In a very sweet Tweet yesterday as she vacationed in the paradise of Negril, Jamaica, American Morning’s co-anchor Kiran Chetry sent her love to AM’s viewers and a wonderful compliment to Carpe Diem’s author. After the author sent her a Tweet including Carpe Diem’s “Kiran Kisses Fans Goodbye,”* she wrote, “I really do enjoy your news analysis. You have incredible attention to detail and subtlety. And yes I truly love fans of our show.”**

As I said earlier, your fans love you, too, Kiran. And, thanks again, for your very kind words. Even though you may not be quite ready to leave paradise, we eagerly look forward to your return.

Tune in Tuesday, AM acolytes. Maybe, Kiran will bring her iReport of her fun in the sun in Negril.

    Kiran no doubt has lots of fans at CNN. CNN has liberal viewers, and Kiran does not disappoint them. Fox News has conservative viewers, and that’s what they didn’t like Kiran over there. Kiran has lots of fans, nice vacations and a fat paycheck, all well and good. But, she’s also pro-abortion, as evidenced by her own words on American Morning. I know many say that other’s people’s views don’t concern them, but when you know that someone is in favor of a person’s “right” to do something so cruel and barbaric to a defenseless human being, it really makes you stop and think.

    I wanted to add to my previous comments that true pro-lifers are peaceful. Life is precious, and when Chetry made the statement referring to abortion clinic workers “having a target on their heads”, she painted all of the pro-life community with the same broad brush. Does she truly know how few abortion clinic employees have ever been attacked? No attack is ever justified, but Kiran acted like there was someone just laying in wait outside of the clinics on a daily basis, waiting to harm someone. I wish Kiran could show as much concern for the babies who have a certain death sentence when their mother walks into that clinic. The transcript of this interview is here-from Newsbusters. Judge for yourselves.

    The full transcript of Kiran Chetry’s interview of Diane Derzis, which began 11 minutes in to the 7 am Eastern hour of Monday’s “American Morning:”

    KIRAN CHETRY: Welcome back to ‘the most news in the morning.’ A 51-year-old man, identified as Scott Roeder, is expected to be charged later today with the murder of abortion doctor George Tiller. Tiller was gunned down in Wichita, Kansas at his church yesterday.

    Diane Derzis owns the New Women [sic] Health Care Clinic in Birmingham, Alabama. It’s a clinic that provides abortions and has for more than three decades. Thank you so much for joining us this morning. Now, you knew Doctor Tiller for years. What was your reaction when you heard about this shooting?

    DIANE DERZIS, OWNER, NEW WOMAN, ALL WOMEN HEALTH CARE CLINIC: Absolutely stunned- also not surprised. We’ve all known that something like this was going to happen. The question was, who was it going to happen to?

    CHETRY: You- your clinic was the one that was bombed, actually, as well, right, in Birmingham, Alabama, by Eric Rudolph, the suspect who’s now serving time because of that-

    DERZIS: Right.

    CHETRY: What is it like going to work knowing you have a target on your head?

    DERZIS: It’s- it’s been like that for many years. You know, every abortion provider in this country knows what kind of atmosphere we work in. We have these people in front of the clinics that- these antics would not be allowed in any other business, but it’s part of what we do. And I think you would have the hundreds of abortionists tell you the same thing- that we are all proud of what we do, we love what we do, that we do serve women, and that we do so knowing what the risks are.

    CHETRY: And when you say you love what you do, can you explain more about that for people who, you know, understand what a contentious situation it is- it’s a choice that no one wants to have to make- people make it obviously. But when you say you love what you do, explain that.

    DERZIS: You know, you can’t meet and talk with the women that we see on a daily basis and not know that what you’re doing is right and moral- you know, and Doctor Tiller- the women he saw were the- he was the last resort. These were women who had wanted to be pregnant, who valued their pregnancies, and for whatever reason, were forced to terminate. And the- you know, I think that’s the important thing is, we know what kind of a role we place in the community, when no one would choose to do this for a job. It’s a calling.

    CHETRY: And this is something that’s been roundly denounced- this shooting, by pro-life activists as well, including Reverend Pat Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition. He said, ‘It’s tragic. The probability is that someone who opposed abortion did this. The reason we are pro-life is because we hate violence on any level, I don’t know of one legitimate pro-life leader who would not unequivocally condemn this.’ Now, of course, you owned and operated-

    DERZIS: That’s a lie.

    CHETRY: You don’t believe the- those words?

    DERZIS: Absolutely not. These people- the rhetoric these people espoused calls for our deaths, every day, in front of these clinics. You know, he’s saying that only because of the timing of this particular shooting. Randall Terry- you know, you also hear him calling George Tiller a mass murderer. They have websites. They have wanted posters. These people have put the target on our chest, on our backs-

    CHETRY: You don’t differentiate between people who are opposed to abortion and pro-life for their religious reasons, versus those who are promoting violence? I know the websites that you’re referring to where there’s a line through people that have been killed. You don’t differentiate between the extreme and people that just hold the position?

    DERZIS: Make no mistake, there are so many people in this country who are pro-life, and are decent, hard-working, good people. But the people, by and large, who stand in front of these clinics every day have their own agenda, and that agenda is to do away with abortion in whatever way they can. The election of Barack Obama put them in a corner. They’re losing, and the only way they see to take care of this is to kill us. This is just the first of what I foresee as many more.

    CHETRY: And this is certainly an uncomfortable question to ask, but, you know, it kind of- it makes you wonder, in all the articles I was reading, it said that Doctor Tiller was one of three doctors in this country that perform late-term abortion. So there’s two more, I guess, you could say-

    DERZIS: Right.

    CHETRY: And you’re right, the targets are out there. I mean, if you look on the Internet, people’s names, where they live- it’s all out there. So what happens if, you know, God forbid, there’s more violence- there’s more killing. Would that end late- the ability for late-term abortion?

    DERZIS: I would hope not. I think what you see- these providers know, again, what the risks are. But they’ve decided to take their medical- their medical training and help women. Now, I hope that you’re going to see more physicians stand up to take George Tiller’s place. Now, that would be the ideal thing.

    CHETRY: Well, I want to thank you for your time and your perspective this morning, Diane Derzis-

    DERZIS: Thank you.

    CHETRY: Appreciate talking to you. Thanks.

    DERZIS: Thank you.

    Kiran rules.

  4. Kep Says:

    Tom, So, it doesn’t bother you in the least that Kiran appears to be in favor of late term abortion, like partial birth abortion? Do you know what late term abortion is? Do you know what happens? It wouldn’t make you feel differently about someone if you knew they saw nothing wrong with this? Do you think Kiran was being fair when she painted this picture of poor little abortion clinic workers, going to work with a target on their heads every day? I condemn any violence against abortion clinic workers, and any true pro-lifer would. Chetry apparently doesn’t know anything about the pro-life movement, anf if she does, it looks like she has chosen to ignore those facts in order to garner sympathy for the pro-abortion agenda. It never ceases to amaze me how our liberal media carries water for the abortion industry. Chetry is just one of many who is doing a very good job.

  5. Dave Says:

    Hey Jake,

    Hope all is well. Always look forward to your commentary on the shows.
    Have a good week.
    D

  6. Tom B. Says:

    Kidding aside, you make some good points, Kep. All in all, I thought it was a fair and reasonable interview. The fact is some of these people do have targets on their heads and, while the violence may be statistically rare, the threats still exist. Kiran did ask the guest if she makes a distinction between the pro-violence loons and the pro-lifers who are opposed to abortion on moral grounds. But I have to admit, Kiran’s last question leaves me scratching my head.

  7. Kep Says:

    CHETRY: And you’re right, the targets are out there. I mean, if you look on the Internet, people’s names, where they live- it’s all out there. So what happens if, you know, God forbid, there’s more violence- there’s more killing. Would that end late- the ability for late-term abortion?

    DERZIS: I would hope not. I think what you see- these providers know, again, what the risks are. But they’ve decided to take their medical- their medical training and help women. Now, I hope that you’re going to see more physicians stand up to take George Tiller’s place. Now, that would be the ideal thing.

    Chetry makes it clear that she is concerned that late term abortion might become impossible to obtain if another clinic attack happens. There’s no other way to interpret the slant of her question. I don’t want clinic workers to be attacked either, even though I find their work despicable. But Ms. Chetry is not representing the situation correctly when she asks “what if there’s more violence, more killing”? Of course, I know she is referring only to the clinic operators, but even if nothing happens to these folks, the violence and killing will continue inside that clinic. It just so happens that the one’s on the receiving end of that killing are the innocent babies that have no voice. Libs like Chetry apparently don’t consider those lives inside the womb worthy of being protected, so the barbarism against them is not violence at all, simply “choice”.
