Worse Than Murder, Inc Hardest Hit

Friday, May 5, AD 2017

 

 

Among the provisions of the ObamaCare repeal and replace legislation passed by two votes in the House yesterday is the defunding of Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc.  We will see what the Senate does now, but for now Worse Than Murder, Inc. is in full panic mode as the above video indicates.  Worse Than Murder, Inc is big business and federal funding accounts for about 40% of their annual revenues of 1.3 billion.  Let’s make Bill Gates or some other well-heeled pro-abort pick up the tab instead of the American taxpayer.  The Democrats will fight tooth and nail since to them abortion has become a sacrament, and pro-aborts their main source of money and campaign volunteers.  When Stephen Douglas proposed his Kansas-Nebraska Act he predicted, correctly, that it was going to “raise a hell of a storm”.  We are in for that type of fight.

  • Fight we will.
    Please call your respective Senators​.
    Tell them..No more federal funding for the Americans cesspool P.P. Let the $ fund poor women’s health care at Federally Qualified Health Centers through out our country. Give women real choice without stepping foot into our national death camps.

  • Wow, you can expect the price of re-purposed baby parts to go through the roof….

  • Unfortunately, Mr. Nachazel, calling my respective Senators here in California (Harris and Feinstein) and urging them to vote to defund PP would be about as useless as life skills training for suicide bombers!

  • Greg Mockeridge: Tell them anyway and always as citizens have been disenfranchised of our say in this matter.
    The last part of her speech was a double edged sword. She calls upon all persons who care about lives.

  • Hi Greg.
    I do appreciate your opinion.
    I’ve written to Michigan’s Senators, Peters and Stabanow, over the course for several years relating to Pro Life causes and Religious Freedom infractions, HHS mandate. Yes..to no avail. I still write​. Mary De Voe I correct…tell them anyway.

    btw…the response generated from their respective offices make great salmon wrap. We have an abundance of salmon in North Western Michigan.
    Peace.

  • Senator Bob Casey, alleged Catholic, will certainly vote against the repeal of Obumblercare because he is the media’s idea of a Catholic – Casey ignores his faith when it conflicts with Democrat ideology.

  • Given Trump’s affinity for single payer, I don’t think Ms. Richards has anything to worry about:

Elections Have Consequences

Friday, March 31, AD 2017

 

The next time someone tells you there is no difference between the parties on abortion, look them in the eye and call them a liar:

 

With a rare tie-breaking vote from Vice President Mike Pence, the Senate on Thursday sent a bill to President Donald Trump’s desk giving states permission to withhold federal family planning funds from Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers.

Pence and Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson, who is recovering from back surgery and used a walker inside the chamber, were dramatically summoned to the Capitol to help pass the measure by a razor-thin margin.

  • “Mark Shea hardest hit.”

    I don’t know how he can now argue that he is not in proximate, material cooperation with evil as a strong supporter of the Democratic Party.

  • There is a difference between the parties on this issue. It’s why, despite everything, I will continue to vote Republican until there is a better choice. However, the party of death will never be the better choice.

  • Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, the nauseating GOP Alaska Senator who claims to be Catholic but is a bought and sold stooge for Planned Parenthood, certainly voted against the measure. Murkowski is almost as bad a Barbara Milkulski, the former Maryland Senator. People with Polish surnames who support Planned Parenthood, whose founder saw Slavs as subhuman, deserve the paddle on the rear end that Foghorn Leghorn gave the barnyard dog in the Looney Tunes cartoons.

  • Here in Texas, Planned Parenthood of Houston opened the largest abortion facility
    in the nation– a 78,000 square-foot behemoth. The Houston Democrats chose
    that venue for their annual Christmas party. I kid you not. I believe that speaks
    volumes about the Democrats. Planned Parenthood is merely the baby-killing arm
    of the Democrat Party.

An Apology

Tuesday, February 7, AD 2017

(I originally wrote this about eight years ago when the blog readership was much smaller.  I last reran it in 2015.  Now that Planned Parenthood is back in the news, and we may at last defund that murderous organization, I thought that current readers might wish to know why I refer to Planned Parenthood as Worse Than Murder, Inc.)

Lately, in several posts, I have been in the habit of referring to Planned Parenthood as Murder, Inc.  I apologize for doing so.  It was unfair of me to draw this type of comparison.

In the late twenties of the last century, gangsters Charles “Lucky” Luciano and Meyer Lansky set up the National Crime Syndicate.  Organized crime needed a mechanism to keep anarchy from breaking out within its ranks between various gangs and factions.  Operating out of a 24 hour candy store in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, Murder, Inc. ( the name was a newspaper invention) provided this mechanism.  Louis “The Judge” “Lepke” Buchalter and Albert “The Mad Hatter” Anastasia were the leaders of Murder, Inc.

The Syndicate, by majority vote, would order the slaying of an unruly gangster and Murder, Inc would carry it out.  The hitmen of Murder, Inc. operated under strict guidlines.  No innocent bystanders were to be killed.  No hits could be ordered against judges, police or prosecuting attorneys for fear of reprisals from law enforcement.

Over the years Murder, Inc. murdered some 800 fellow gangsters.  In 1940 the downfall of the murder enterprise began when Murder, Inc. killer Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles, turned informant in order to save himself from the electric chair.  Louis “The Judge” “Lepke” Buchalter died in the chair in Sing Sing in 1944, after the US Supreme Court rejected his appeal which raised, among other issues, the contention of Buchalter that lurid press coverage had tainted the jury.  Other Murder, Inc. members swiftly followed “The Judge” down the last mile.  Albert “The Madhatter” Anastasia would have followed in their footsteps but for the tragic “accidental” death of Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles when he fell from room 623 of the Half Moon Hotel on Coney Island.  In the gang world he was ever after known as “The Canary that sung but couldn’t fly.”  However, with the attention of law enforcement focused upon it, Murder, Inc. could no longer function and it ceased to exist except as a gangland legend.

Based upon this grim record I hope you can see why it is necessary for me to apologize—to Murder, Inc.

  • “Never apologize. It’s a sign of weakness.” Capt. Nathan Brittles (John Wayne, “She Wore A Yellow Ribbon).

    In the spirit of this post, here is an alternate-history statement President Obama would have issued upon the 9/11 WTC tragedies. “We deeply regret the tragic deaths of 19 virtuous Muslims. This Administration will do everything in its power to reverse the evils committed by America so that reverent Muslims will no longer need to fly jumbo jets into tall buildings located in evil, unjust America.”

  • What may really finally turn this debate in our favor (=pro-life cause), even while P Francis, Card. Cupich, and others, is the book “Gosnell”, and the extraordinarily articulate description of Kermit Gosnell by one of the co-authors, Phelim McAleer, of he whom he calls “the greatest US mass-murderer of all time.” I heard his interview today on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, and McAleer cites that, under former Gov Tom Ridge (an official “catholic”, small “c”), investigations of Planned Parenthood were side-tracked, even though the screams of Gosnell’s victims could be heard out on the street. At least 2 women died in his office—and no investigators from the City of Philadelphia were curious as to why. Bodies of infants were literally stacked—stacked–in the basement in freezers, and no one ever wanted to check.

    This story may catalyze an explosion of revulsion to abortion at last—as well it should.

  • I imagine that people learning about Murder, Inc. at the time thought the murderers for hire were the lowest of the low- that people couldn’t get any more evil and callous than that.
    Even at the outset of Worse Than Murder, Inc I would say most people didn’t know how much worse it would get. Now proponents of euthanasia play down the idea of a worsening descent spreading in our culture.
    I am thankful for our Nominee for Supreme Court- and I pray that God will shine a huge bright light on our justice department and expose many and clean house.

  • Every human being ever murdered by Kermit Gosnell is written on his face.
    America needs to have Truth and Justice reinstituted.

  • It takes a real man to apologize. The Son of God apologized to His Father for us.

How Worse Than Murder, Inc. Sells Abortion

Tuesday, February 7, AD 2017

 

A chilling video in which Live Action pro-life heroine Lila Rose talks with former Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. managers of abortion clinics.  They had quotas to make and they were under instructions to sell abortion as a solution to the desperate pregnant women who come to these death clinics.  The banality of evil indeed.  The deaths of innocents in order to meet a cash quota for a month.  Imagine trying to explain that to God.  Jesus wept.

One Response to How Worse Than Murder, Inc. Sells Abortion

  • God bless Lila Rose, and all the faithful outspoken active people who pray and work to stop this madness.
    The business of abortion is so lucrative and is supported by so many useful idiots that hard think there will ever be a change of heart by, say, CRichards. Even when lots of lower level worker help with the expose’ it is hard too imagine a real change in this society without a real smack down from God.

Father John Hollowell Calls Out Head of Planned Parenthood

Saturday, July 30, AD 2016

 

Hattip to Matt Archbold at Creative Minority Report. 

Father John Hollowell of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis calls out Cecile Richards, head of Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc.

The money quote:
“We have no doubt that in 20 or 50 or 100 years, other societies and other civilizations will look back and will lump your organization in with the slave traders, the Nazis, the communists, all those groups that have always sought to oppress people.”

Optimism for the future and a fighting spirit:  ever the authentic voice of the Church Militant.  Bravo Father Hollowell!

  • May his spark ignite an unstoppable fire to consume this so-called “woman’s reproductive health” issue, more accurately know as killing children…in less than 20, 50 or 100 years from now.

  • Truly, there may be such a “lumping,” but Planned Parenthood will be distinguished in hsiroty, and the differences between Cecile Richards and Hitler, Stalin, and slavers will be starkly clear. Planned Parenthood has done things the Nazis did not dream of. Yes, the Nazis cut the hair from those who were entering the gas chambers and used it for socks for the Reich’s submariners and as delay devices in bomb fuses. Yes, the Nazis used Jewish non-persons’ skin as lampshades; used fat from Jewish cell masses for soap, and removed all gold fillings from the mouths of the dead Jewish subhumans. But Nazis never recovered and sold Jewish body parts, nor did they harvest human organs from still-living Jews in agony. I am unaware of history revealing Nazis selling any body parts or organs. At least the Nazis had the human decency to hide their evil, and not celebrate it with applause in the Reichstag. Stalin was considerate enough to keep secret the 20,000,000 murders he oversaw, rather than seeking praise for them. And the slavers assiduously tried to keep everyone from ever viewing the interior of a slave ship, and hoped no one smell the stench from them when they came into port. It is, in a way, a desecration of their legacy and an insult to the memory of the Nazis, the communists, and the slavers to accuse them of being like Cecile Richards, her coven, and Planned Parenthood. Guy McClung, San Antonio, Texas

  • Meanwhile, the USCCB is silent and the Pontiff was lecturing Poland to let in Muslims.

  • Guy McClung,

    Tough words. And they deserve every letter of it.

    There is no other conclusion than what you draw; assuming your premises are true. Your assumed premise is that the biological matter, shredded in the trash can, is (IS), a human being; an immortal soul.

    That is the core issue now, no less than then. For slavers and nazis both the violence depended on FIRST de-humanizing the object of their oppression. The objects of their violence were either less than human (2/3 human in the case of the negro) or not human at all in the case of the Jew and the unborn.

    Any debate I’ve ever had on the topic ends at the opening statement on first principles. If the thing in the womb is like a tumor or an appendix; if the thing being led to the gas chamber is like a dog or a biological disease; then how to dispose of it is indeed a minor personal choice, or perhaps even a social imperative.

    If, however,(s)he is a life made in the image of God, FROM God, going back TO God. Well, my goodness, what we are doing in this country is the greatest evil in the history of mankind.

    That is why the Priests and Faithful must lead. The solution to this evil is NOT political. It is Spiritual. We must convert those among whom we live; one, by one, by one. They must be made to know God again, FIRST. And then, all the necessary conclusions will fall into place.

  • I HAVE A SAY also. As an old woman (78), barely educated (high school only), I still can fight with my wallet, and so can anyone, if they really give a damn about this issue. Go online (if a tech retard like me can do it, anyone can), find out who the corporate sponsors of PLANNED PARENTHOOD, and of their non-profit supporters like Susan G Komen, American Cancer Society, ASPCA, etc. are. Then INFORM all their like-minded friends and actively BOYCOTT these abetting partners of baby killers. Write to the local president of Chase Bank, the manager of your local Walgreens, Kohl’s, etc. and to the national headquarters,
    informing them of what you are doing and why.

    General Mills should be especially targeted, because they have bought the consciences of all the bishops and school superintendents who participate in the Boxtops for Education program, for the big bucks each school can get.

  • Edie Eason.

    Your wisdom can overshadow many a college graduate so please don’t underestimate the ingenuity of a 78 year young soul like yourself.
    Great points.
    I will Google boxtops for education program after work today.
    Thanks for your suggestions.

  • Brian-Ditto re “spiritual.” But so often I find myself longing for a kick-butt Mesisah to come RIGHT NOW! That’s easy compared to trying to live a daily life of virtue. Edie Eason: love a gal who has the fortitude and conviction to sign her name – from one “tech retard” to another-still I am only a youngster in my seventieth year. Please make my “prayer deal” with me – I have a feeling God knows your voice-You pray for me and mine, I pray for you and yours. God bless all in this house. and Y’all: Keep on havin’ a fullofwonder weekend. Gug McClung, San Atnonio Texas

  • Thanks Edie.

    I just started looking at General Mills boxtop programs…over half a billion $ since 1996 conception went to school programs…
    The question of course is what programs?

    So sad how many large donors give to Worse than Murder Inc. Bank of America being one of them…. funny because their reputation is gutter sludge so it’s not surprising that they contribute.

    As for any employee’s of B of A….my condolences.

    No more Ben & Jerrys….. thanks ALOT Edie.
    Seriously…your right about the $.
    I can do without their line of ice cream.
    Well….for that matter, all ice cream until I drop more weight.

    Peace Edie.

  • Philip – I appreciate your kind words. They inspire me to keep up the fight against Planned Parenthood, and Susan G. Komen, one of their more deceptive partners. The research I’ve done shows that General Mills has been a supporter of abortion since the eighties. When some Catholic school districts learned of GM’s contributions to PP, and threatened to pull out of the Boxtops program, GM stopped giving DIRECTLY TO PP, and went through the back door, giving a MINIMUM of $1m annually to Susan G. Komen. General Mills covers over 100 brands, so boycotting it is not easy – but really worthwhile goals seldom are. Recently, the partnership list on Komen’s website dropped the name General Mills, and now shows Yoplait – a product of GM-as a major donor. My archbishop, Gregory Almond of the N.O. diocese and his Supt. of schools justify participating because some so-called ?Catholic ethicist said its OK because General Mills does not contribute DIRECTLY TO PP. To me, its akin to approving doing business with a shop in Berlin that sells lamps with human-skin shades, because you do not buy directly from the death camps. Relativism?

  • Relativism!

    Amen Edie..amen.

  • “Do not think that I came to send peace upon earth: I came not to send peace, but the sword.” Matthew 10:34 and Luke 12:52 “For henceforth in one house five will be divided, three against two, and two against three.” Sad to say, we are a nation divided, even amongst members of families. The call is nonetheless clear, as clear as a certain trumpet, to battle evil, to overcome evil with good.

  • Father Hollowell’s powerful words are inspirational. I only wish the video would get wide distribution.

    His comparison of Planned Parenthood to slave holders is something that was expressed by one of my favorite authors, Andrew Klavan, last year.

    Here is part of his essay:
    “There will come a time when the people who run Planned Parenthood will be viewed as we view slaveholders today.

    “Today, you hear young people say, ‘Why should we listen to the people of the past? Why should we admire their accomplishments? They held slaves. They were racists. They conquered other nations. Who cares what books they wrote? What discoveries they made? What governments they created? They owned people. They owned human beings as property. Why should we do anything but despise them?

    But the young have no pity. They have no compassion. They feel them, but they don’t have them. That only comes with time. The people of the 18th century saw themselves as the forgers of new ideas and new nations and new ideas for nations. The young take all those things for granted. They see the men and women of the past only as slaveholders and racists and conquerors. Which they also were.

    We see ourselves as inventing new machines, new medicines, new art forms, connecting human minds in new ways. The young of the future will take all those things for granted. They’ll see us as the slaughterers of the helpless, the butcherers of the silent, the small, the weak. The cannibals of our own children.

    Which we also are.”

    Here is the rest:
    https://pjmedia.com/andrewklavan/2015/7/16/the-future-of-planned-parenthood/?singlepage=true

  • Slavery took many forms, or we should say takes, as slavery is not fully erased. See ISIS enslaving young women as we live and breathe. Do not the young have pity on them either? Not all forms of slavery were as demeaning as that in the New World of the period under discussion. Slavery in the ancient world could be worse but often very much better, even genteel. One half the population of the Roman Empire was enslaved in one form or another, yet some slaves had slaves, and were wealthy.

    More apt than seeing us as mere slaveholders, we have come to resemble the pagan people of Canaan who sacrificed children to their demonic idols. Our idols are not of wood or stone, mere graven images. Our idols are money, convenience and little luxuries. And for these things some will sacrifice their unborn sons and daughters, until the land is polluted with blood.

  • William……the land IS already polluted with blood. At an conservative estimate of 3oz of blood from the …ok well you see the math. 1,406,250 us gallons…not pints…if blood. Innocent blood on the hands of our sisters, aunts, cousins, girlfriends, wives, mothers and men who convinced them it was “the final solution.”

  • Philip, you are correct. Is it sixty million since Roe v Wade? I doubt the population of the world was that many in 1,400 B.C.. In fact, It seems by some estimates, there were only 40 million people in the world at the time of Moses. It makes one shudder to think of it. Time to pray, “Oh Lord, I am but dust and ashes but if there be……………..

  • WPW.

    I recall the Genesis reading from only a few weeks ago at most.

    It’s a fact that the Lord has chosen to allow the weeds to grow along with the wheat in relationship to the new Sodom and Gomorrah.
    Jesus Christ, owner and purchaser of our souls, has various countermeasures that haven’t been used yet in the miracle of converting weed to wheat.
    His patience is the model we must imitate.

    I get anxious about the continuation of innocent blood being poured out of babies designed to fulfill God’s purposes. If HE can be patient with this slaughter of his own children…then I must be patient. That of course doesn’t mean to be silent or complacent as the plague marches on, but it does fill my heart with an urgent sense of sounding the alarm for the young that I work with. Consistently and with conviction.
    Our responsibility to inform, instruct and be concerned is serious matter.
    Lives are in the balance.

  • This is a great video and powerful words from Father. They’re as true and inspirational as they were when he first published this video. It’s probably 4 or 5 years ago that I first saw this YouTube video. And in the intervening years, what’s happened? Sorry for being so pessimistic but ugh.

    I recommend Father do a 2016 version to bolster this older video.

Georgetown University Finds a New Low

Thursday, March 10, AD 2016

Just when you thought the dissident “Catholic” university couldn’t find a new low, it manages to surpass even our lowest expectations.

The Lecture Fund at Georgetown University is planning to host Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) President Cecile Richards on campus this April, The Cardinal Newman Society has learned.

“This is the latest in a long history of scandal at Georgetown University,” said Cardinal Newman Society President Patrick Reilly. “Disguised as an academic event, this is nothing more than a platform for abortion advocacy at a Catholic university and under the nose of the Catholic bishops, featuring a wicked woman who defends the sale of baby body parts and is responsible for the deaths of millions of aborted children.”

It would be one thing to invite Richards to a debate, but here she is given the floor to spew her pro-abortion propaganda. And with Ms. Richards, we’re not talking about someone who happens to favor abortion but who is discussing a different topic. No, she is the head of an organization that is responsible for the murder of over 300,000 unborn children per year, not to mention the selling of body parts. Planned Parenthood is just about the most anti-Catholic institution on the face of the Earth, and the head of this organization is being given a platform by an institution that deems itself to be Catholic.

How outrageous is this decision? The Archdiocese of Washington even spoke out against the decision.

In any case, this is not our issue here. What we lament and find sadly lacking in this choice by the student group is any reflection of what should be an environment of morality, ethics and human decency that one expects on a campus that asserts its Jesuit and Catholic history and identity.

One would prefer to see some recognition by this student group of the lives and ministry, focus and values of people like Blessed Óscar Romero, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta and Pope Francis in place of that group’s seemingly constant preoccupation with sexual activity, contraception and abortion. The Archdiocese of Washington is always open and ready to dialogue with the students, faculty and administration of the University on issues of such significance.

The apparent unawareness of those pushing the violence of abortion and the denigration of human dignity that there are other human values and issues being challenged in the world lends credence to the perception of the “ivory tower” life of some on campus. This unfortunately does not speak well for the future. One would hope to see this generation of Georgetown graduates have a far less self-absorbed attitude when facing neighbors and those in need, especially the most vulnerable among us.

When even this Archdiocese condemns an action, you know you’ve gone too far.

I do not normally encourage vocally protesting a speaker, as I generally find it obnoxious. This is a case where I can make an exception.

Grand Jury Mystery

Tuesday, January 26, AD 2016

 

quote-any-good-prosecutor-can-get-a-grand-jury-to-indict-a-ham-sandwich-sol-wachtler-311545

 

For my sins, no doubt, I have been an attorney now for more than a third of a century.  One of the many lessons that I have learned over this great span of time, is that grand juries are the tools of prosecutors, and that other than declining to indict an occasional prospective defendant, grand juries normally proceed along the paths that the directing prosecutors wish.  What then to make of this?

A Harris County grand jury has indicted the Center for Medical Progress — specifically, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt – while declining to indict Planned Parenthood. This comes after the Center for Medical Progress released an investigation last year into the sales of aborted baby organs at Planned Parenthood:

Secret videographers David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt were both indicted on charges of tampering with a governmental record, a second-degree felony that carries a punishment of up to 20 years in prison. Daleiden received an additional misdemeanor indictment under the law prohibiting the purchase and sale of human organs.

Harris County District Attorney Devon Anderson announced the surprising indictments Monday after a two-month investigation.

“We were called upon to investigate allegations of criminal conduct by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast,” said Anderson, a Republican. “As I stated at the outset of this investigation, we must go where the evidence leads us. All the evidence uncovered in the course of this investigation was presented to the grand jury. I respect their decision on this difficult case.”

A grand jury is formed of ordinary citizens that are presented  evidence and testimony from the prosecutor alone to form their theory of a case without any input from the defense.

From that information, the jury determines if there is enough probable cause to move the case forward in the judicial process.  The grand jury does not determine guilt or innocence. The indictment itself is a public document but it has not been made available online at the time of publication.

Absolutely no information has been released regarding what government records Daleiden and Merritt allegedly tampered with. The Center for Medical Progress responded, pointing out their free speech rights, as well as reminding all of us that Planned Parenthood was breaking the law by selling the body parts of aborted babies:

  • DA’s CONFLICT OF INTEREST here.
    On the board of Planned Parenthood and part of the prosecution.
    I’m checking this out, but heard it on the radio just recently. If you have information on this hearsay please expound.
    I’m heading out in traffic.

  • It was an assistant prosecutor who supposedly had nothing to do with the Grand Jury investigation. However, the questions as to how the DA bungled an easy case against abortionist Douglas Karpen, with the Grand Jury returning no indictment, makes me highly suspicious.
    http://www.operationrescue.org/archives/planned-parenthood-board-member-works-in-houston-district-attorneys-office-that-is-investigating-planned-parenthood/

  • I’ve learned that commenting on cases that weren’t mine is seldom wise. From the outside, there’s just too much we don’t know. But you are spot on in all of your comments. Grand Juries are also sometimes used to “wash” a case. That means you have a suspect in a high profile case that may very well be guilty, but for whatever reason (usually political) the prosecutor does not want to be seen as failing to charge the suspect. So he takes it to a Grand Jury, and induces them to return a no bill and that’s the end of it. Then he can protest, “It wasn’t me, it was the Grand Jury!” It’s not uncommon among the more weaselly of prosecutors. So, it is possible that he sidestepped voter repercussions or whatever by washing Planned Parenthood. That much, I can understand, What is odd is that he has set the stage for whatever the defendants — with subpoena duces tecum power, by the way — want to present at trial that they can get from PP. As you point out, that was his decision. Is he planning on making them an offer they can’t refuse, i.e. very generous? I cannot imagine he would seriously want to put this case on in front of a jury! (And the press.) I doubt he will try the case if it goes to trial. He’ll probably bring in the Attorney General or somebody. I bet the defendants will be well-represented and well-funded. It seems spiteful, but even more D-U-M-B. And yes, it stinks to high heaven.

  • Thanks Donald.
    Smells like skunk.
    If they attempt to prosecute they will regret it.
    It will blow up in their face.
    Respond to criminal charges is bunk.

  • There’s no conflict arising from an assistant in the office being on the board of PP.

    Nonetheless, as a prosecutor who is counsel to an investigative grand jury, I can confirm it is certainly true that these charges would not have been returned without the very active involvement of the DA. No grand jury would have the legal knowledge (or imagination) to return these indictments without the strong guidance of the DA running the show. And, by the same token, it is very unlikely the grand jury would have declined to indict PP unless the DA had strongly signaled his view that the case was weak and should not be indicted. I wonder if the DA even presented actual indictments for the grand jury to deliberate over.

    In any event, indicting is one thing, convicting beyond a reasonable doubt is entirely another matter.

One Response to Changing Sides

  • IT OCCURRED TO ME in the banter regarding Trump that we [ michael- you , me] might have different frame of references as to what contitutes a blow hard arrogant s-o-b. For example-
    the neanderthal Cuomo who told me @ 9 months ago that i was not fit to be a new yorker- pls consider
    Gov. Andrew Cuomo has imposed substantial portions of the Bathroom Bill upon the State of New York by fiat.

    On January 20, the New York State Division of Human Rights adopted a new regulation-known as 9 NYCRR 466.13 – relating to “gender identity discrimination.” As Albany Update has previously reported, this regulation was proposed in November 2015. New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms, along with hundreds of like-minded New Yorkers, submitted comments in opposition to this wrong-headed proposal. Not surprisingly, the Division of Human Rights (DHR) paid very little attention to those comments; the DHR made only minor changes to the regulation before adopting it.

    The new regulation states that existing laws banning sex discrimination and disability discrimination also prohibit discrimination based upon gender identity. This means that New York’s shopping malls, stores, universities, restaurants, and recreational facilities-along with many other public places-are now required to accommodate crossdressing and so-called gender transitions. New York’s employers are also required to accommodate employees who wish to dress and identify as members of the opposite sex. A failure to accommodate “transgendered” behavior will be grounds for a lawsuit.

    Everything about the Governor’s new regulation is wrong. The substance of the regulation is wrong, as the Governor’s action places onerous new burdens upon New York businesses and compromises the privacy and safety of women and girls by allowing men who identify as “transgender” to enter women-only space. The process used to adopt the regulation is wrong because the DHR has, in essence, rewritten the law. Gov. Cuomo may be frustrated that the Bathroom Bill was blocked in the State Senate for the past eight years; however, his frustration does not give him license to bypass the Legislature. As every student with a rudimentary understanding of government knows, it is the executive’s job to enforce the law; making law is a legislative function. The DHR has feebly attempted to justify its “end run” by claiming that the regulation only codifies existing practice; if that is, in fact, the case, the DHR has been adjudicating complaints of “gender identity discrimination” without legal authorization.

    The Governor and his allies will no doubt laud this new regulation as an effort to protect vulnerable New Yorkers. In reality, this regulation makes New Yorkers more vulnerable. Parents, when men who identify as women claim a legal right to use ladies’ changing areas at public pools, and when those men undress in front of your daughters, you can thank the Governor. Employers, when an employee demands that you address him by a feminine name and allow him to crossdress in the workplace, and when your attorney informs you that you could be found liable for discrimination if you do not comply, you can thank the Governor.

Please, you are besmirching the legacy of all National Socialists*, of Hitler, Goebbels, Himmler and Dr. Mengele; and the memory of all the Grand Wizards of the KKK and of all loyal KKK members by comparing Planned Parenthood to National Socialists and to the KKK, and by not recognizing the consummate incomparable evil of Planned Parenthood. In all of US history there are, by one study, about 5000 lynchings, total. Add to that several million tortures and whippings. Still the Nazis and the KKK cannot hold a candle to Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, PP Board members, PP Abortionists, those who vote for Democrats, and those who contribute to Democrat campaigns [“Planned Parenthood et al”]. They kill about 1,000,000 babies every three years, the overwhelming majority of whom are black or Hispanic. Planned Parenthood et al have done things the National Socialists* never dreamed of doing: harvesting human organs from living babies, cutting out human body parts and selling them, splitting open [very carefully] a baby’s face to get a fresh whole brain for sale, pulling babies feet first out of their mothers to maximize salable parts and organs before the baby is dead, and selling entire intact human bodies. Godwin’s Law of Moral Discussion is that if the discussion goes on long enough, someone will compare an immoral act to acts of the National Socialists*. Now there is McClung’s Corollary: If people today do things worse than what the National Socialists* did, more heinous, more bloodthirsty, more diabolical, they will be compared to Planned Parenthood et al, Cecile Richards, and the ghoulish barbaric fiends who pass themselves off as PP doctors.

    Nightly News with Bob Stratus…..
    Good evening America.
    Our top story tonight is the dramatic decrease of abortion’s. The “War on the Unborn” has been seeing great success on the front lines as more and more unwanted pregnancies have been on the decrease, due in part to a national outcry and demand for social justice after America’s genocidal past had reached the 100 Million mark. As a matter of point, we started to air the daily death counts of dead babies at the end of our nightly broadcast seven years ago, as an effort to rid the evil of mass killings due to abortion. We’re happy to report that the number of teen pregnancies has dramatically decreased as the daily reminder of deaths is presented each and every night.

    A guy can dream….can’t he?

  • “unwanted pregnancy” is a circumlocution of the contraceptive mentality.

    Nobody would sympathize with you were you to say “I put away a fifth of scotch last night and woke up with an unwanted hang-over.”

  • “FY 2015 PP murdered 323,999 babies. Not one mammogram was performed. Women’s health!”
    And I would bet you, T. Shaw, that more than 51% of those babies were female.

  • Ernst. Good point!
    The cause/effect might gain some moral norm foothold if young boys and girls viewed the pregnancies as and effect if their lust, and death to a person as the worse possible effect. Daily tallies of aborted babies could help. (?)

  • I’m thinking of starting a planned inebriation group. We’ll sell a little sugar pill that will allow you to drink as much as you want and never experience a hang-over until you’re ready.

    Fellow Patriots,

    The Racine County Republican Party in Paul Ryan’s district has a simple message for voters.

    You’re an idiot.

    You see, Paul Ryan shoved the Omnibus through without a fight. Not a fight, not a struggle, not even an argument. Ryan waved the white flag and gave Obama literally everything he wanted.

    This because Ryan is a coward and didn’t want to be seen as the guy who shut the government down. Even though, as we all know, a shut down would have been Obama’s fault. So instead of defending what is right, Ryan took the path of surrendering and moving on to election season.

    Of course, Ryan didn’t want Republicans to have to defend the fact that they betrayed voters on Planned Parenthood, Syrian refugees, illegal immigration and more. So what is Ryan doing to try and save face? He’s now working with liberal Republicans in the Senate to bass reconciliation legislation that might defund Planned Parenthood. This so he can run TV ads saying he’s trying.

    Ryan knows full well Obama will veto such efforts. And we know it too. Yet the Racine County Republican Party thinks we’re all going to fall for the lie. They think we’re all just going to forgive and forget.

    Pathetic.

Worse Than Murder Inc. and Choice

Tuesday, September 29, AD 2015

 

Sarah Owens at The Federalist details her experience at Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder Inc. five years ago:

 

Two years into college, I found myself late—yes, that kind of late. Now, I knew it was probably nothing, but I wasn’t sure, and I wanted to be. Like a lot of college students, I drank on weekends and if I were pregnant I didn’t want to harm the child. Again, due to embarrassment, I didn’t go to the doctor I knew. I was afraid, even at 20 years old, that a pregnancy test would somehow show up on a bill that went to my parents. If I wasn’t pregnant I didn’t want the test to ever come to light. So, again I trekked to Planned Parenthood, this one located right off campus.

I left the office and cried. Maybe it was relief, but I mostly felt hurt and manipulated. What if I had been pregnant—would she have been able to sway me? How many others have passed through those doors and were swayed to terminate, who felt the strain—financial, physical, or mental—that parenting might cause so decided it would be easier to just “fix the problem”?

Go here to read the rest.  Sarah’s story helps underline the lie behind the pro-abort claim to be “pro-choice”.  First, you cannot be “pro-choice” without being a pro-abort.  (I would never own a slave, but I would never impose my morality on slave-holders.  I would never gas a Jew but who am I to judge the Nazis?  I would never kill my toddler, but that child murderer probably had her reasons.)  A choice between two alternatives is only morally acceptable if both of the choices are at least morally neutral.  Slaying an unborn child never is.

Second, pro-aborts fight tooth and nail against any effort to provide information to a pregnant woman that may persuade her against abortion.  They are “pro-choice” only if the right choice is made:  abortion.

Third, the “pro-choice” mantra is especially risible coming from Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc.:  their blood money empire is based on dead fetuses.  They make no money from a woman not having an abortion.

Abby Johnson, pro-life crusader who was the director of a Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder Inc. clinic, recalls how abortion was pushed:

  • Satanic forces from the conception of PP,( WTM Inc.), and continuing forward until the beast is finally crushed under the heel of the Immaculata. This is the face of Satan. His depot for the ride to damnation. Poor souls who do not repent and souls propagating the business are happy to be passengers on his train.

    Let us help crush the head of the serpent, Worse than Murder Inc., with our daily Rosaries.

    On Oct. 10th, Saturday, ANF is holding another public square Rosary Rally. The projected number of cities this year is 14,000. We’re getting there. Please spend an hour in prayer with your fellow Catholics to ask Heaven to assist us putting an end to this Satanic organization PP.

    Thank you for your consideration’s.

  • Nazis who had done before and during WW II what Planned Parenthood does today with impunity before the whole world were tried in a Court of Law for crimes against humanity, convicted, and then hung by their necks till they were dead. I would rather that they repent. But Democrats (and these are all Democrats) typically (and sadly) do not repent. Further, while they will escape the capital punishment visited on their Nazi forebearers, they will not escape God’s mercy for the unborn. He hears their cries and He is NOT a disinterested spectator in the events of human affairs. May God help us when He shows forth His mercy. It ain’t a’gonna be pretty.

  • PS, would Pope Francis still oppose the death penalty if he were shown one of those videos of a medical specialist at Planned Parenthood vivisecting a live baby for his organs?

  • A horrifying aspect is that every time I was pregnant, it was really easy to get me worked up with fear from lack of support– even with a great husband, and the long distance support of family, I didn’t have anybody physically there a lot of the time and that’s the level it hits you on. Panic attacks are already an issue, especially among women– I think it’s because of the major lack of visceral support and connection.

    The kind of bullying the transcript describes would be very, very effective on a woman who is already scared, and has the surge of pregnancy related hormones in her system.

  • “The kind of bullying the transcript describes would be very, very effective on a woman who is already scared, and has the surge of pregnancy related hormones in her system.”

    A woman I know was in just that situation Foxfier, 19 years old, abandoned by everyone, and completely terrified, and came very close to aborting her now beloved daughter, the light of her life. Then she heard a baby crying and stormed out of the clinic. To this day she doesn’t know if there was a baby elsewhere in the abortion clinic, she imagined it or it was a cry of a Holy Innocent beyond this Vale of Tears.

  • Cecile Richards swore in testimony that she is; “unaware of any baby being born alive following a botched abortion.”

    See what happens when you make seven figures annually running the Country’s largest abortion facility. You loose sight. You loose the ability to hear. You loose your senses.

    This is the height of ungodliness. The depths of filthiness. This Cecile Richards is bought and paid for. The ownership of one Lucifer who holds her soul in his bloody hand.

    If you knew that your presence at one of these death camps could save the life of a baby, wouldn’t you find the time to show up…even if it was just an hour of your time?

    Two events are happening on Oct. 10th.
    Another prayer Rally in front of as many PP’s around the country as possible and the National Rosary campaign as mentioned above. Please consider attending one of these events. We must not let Cecile Richards rest until she grows a conscious…and tell’s the truth. The baby you save will forever be a constant advocate for you and your loved one’s. Can I prove this? Nope. I am absolutely certain of it, as I am certain that God Loves Us. The baby will never know you on Earth, yet her Angel will be speaking favourably on your behalf to Our Lord and King of Mercy.

  • This is the group that the Republican controlled Congress can’t be bothered to defund because it’s too hard.

  • What a disgrace… the Congress!

  • Almost all Republicans have voted to defund Planned Parenthood and almost all Democrats have voted to continue to fund it. Obama has vowed to veto any spending bill that does not fund Planned Parenthood. How are the Republicans supposed to defund it under those circumstances? Refuse to pass any funding bill and go home? Been there, done that.

  • From Grassfire, division of Grassroots Action Inc., the Senate has voted 77-19 to advance the spending bill. 31 Republican senators sided with dems. Disgraceful.

  • I don’t have the answer, obviously, but a united front wouldn’t hurt even in the face of a veto.

  • Meanwhile Pope Who tells America it needs to abolish the death penalty and writes letters to American states’ governors trying to stop justice for heinous, death-row convicts. These are aids and abettors to Worse than Murder, Inc.

  • Philip, Philip, you obsess too much. It is not necessary to talk about this issue of abortion so much. We have to find a new moral balance; otherwise even the moral edifice of the church is likely to fall like a house of cards, losing the freshness and fragrance of the Gospel.

    –Pope Francis

  • Ginny.

    You go girl.

    🙂

  • How are the Republicans supposed to defund it under those circumstances?

    I dunno. Go back to passing the 7(?) or so appropriation bills that made up the federal budget. You know, back when we had a budget instead of this perpetual phony-crisis continuing resolution nonsense. Save Health & Human services (assuming that’s where WTMInc get’s its funding) for last to diminish the threat.
    .
    Or is that too crazy to work?

  • On the other hand, if we had some public faces that didn’t reflexively cringe every time a media wag gave them the Very Serious Look of Profound Concern while wanting to know why little Timmy’s trip to Washington was ruined because the Lincoln Memorial was closed, well then, it wouldn’t be that hard to turn it around and say that the Lincoln Memorial was closed because the Democrat President and his Democrat colleagues care more about funnelling your hard-earned tax dollars to a group that chops up babies for parts and that’s wrong. Because it’s wrong to sell baby parts.
    .
    Really, I don’t see why Republicans are afraid to make this fight. Unless, that is, they don’t really believe what they say they believe.
    .
    (N.B. Boehner in my opinon is the false prophet, given the complete and utter failure to move on anything the G.O.P ran on in 2010 & 2014 –other than we think we should be in charge instead of them, of course. But that’s subtext.)

  • “Or is that too crazy to work?”

    How would that defund Planned Parenthood? There is no gimmick here unless you explain how Obama’s veto is to be overridden.

  • “I don’t have the answer, obviously, but a united front wouldn’t hurt even in the face of a veto.”

    I don’t disagree with that, but there has to be a plan better than shut down the government which has been tried and failed as a strategy. One might be to propose legislation banning federal funds for any group trafficking in human body parts. That focuses on the issue at hand and forces the Democrats to play defense on a subject that makes ever portions of their voters upset.

  • “On the other hand, if we had some public faces that didn’t reflexively cringe every time a media wag gave them the Very Serious Look of Profound Concern while wanting to know why little Timmy’s trip to Washington was ruined because the Lincoln Memorial was closed, well then, it wouldn’t be that hard to turn it around and say that the Lincoln Memorial was closed because the Democrat President and his Democrat colleagues care more about funnelling your hard-earned tax dollars to a group that chops up babies for parts and that’s wrong. Because it’s wrong to sell baby parts.”

    Yep, all those government checks will not be coming out because the Republicans, in their ceaseless war on women, hate contraception and Planned Parenthood. That is the way almost all Americans would hear about it from the media.

  • The government checks don’t stop coming, so that’s a media-crat lie. You fight lies with the truth. But you have to be willing to make the fight in order to win it. Right now, we simply forfeit. Because it’s too hard to point out Obama would be the one shutting down the government by his veto, and the Democrats would be the ones keeping it shut by sustaining that veto.

    And all because keeping our tax dolloars going to an organization that sells baby parts is more important to them than government checks.

  • The decrease in the abortions being preformed is due to what? RU-486 or the constant Pro-Life visibility at death camps including news related to abortion?

    Is it going to be a win for pro life by the decision of women to never choose abortion as an option? Will the tide turn, or has it turned already?

    The lawless own the language today. War on women! What might have to happen is the number of pro life witnesses multiplying to the point that the option of abortion becomes, as it already should be, a non-choice. Public opinion becomes a tsunami that shuts down the Murder option. Wishful thinking?
    Maybe.

    What else is there?

  • “Because it’s too hard to point out Obama would be the one shutting down the government by his veto, and the Democrats would be the ones keeping it shut by sustaining that veto.”

    Such points were made in the last government shutdown and it didn’t work. Repeating failed strategies is a sure recipe for defeat. A much better strategy is to launch investigative hearings in regard to Planned Parenthood, something some of the smarter Republicans are beginning to do in the House:

    http://www.cbsnews.com/news/gop-to-form-special-panel-investigating-planned-parenthood/

    With the power of subpoena much can be uncovered, especially if this is tied in with ongoing civil suits against Planned Parenthood for violation of federal laws regarding body part trafficking and the use of federal funds for abortion related services.

    “By wise counsel do you win your wars” is one of the most sadly neglected passages in the Bible for most Christians.

  • Pingback: Did Pope Francis Really Say Jesus Was a Failure? - Big Pulpit
  • Government shutdowns have proven not to be quite the political disasters that people feared, and as such are no big deal (plus they lighten traffic a bit in my neck of the woods). On the other hand, they don’t ever seem to accomplish anything.

  • This whole-cloth lie that Federal money is not being used to fund PP abortions reminds me of my Great Aunt Evelyn’s (RIP) reaction to news that the notorious Willy Sutton had robbed her bank branch, “I hope he didn’t get my money.”
    .
    Once money is placed in an organization, it is comingled and used in the whole supply of money. So, if PP commits abortions, federal funds are used to the commit abortions. Of course, the lawyers’ solution would be to establish/incorporate a PP non-profit affiliate, independent of the abortion PP, that only does women’s health stuff and place the Federal $$ therein.
    .
    Another line of questioning should be exorbitant salaries paid, again from Federal monies, much of which is revolved into the democrat party coffers.

  • A much better strategy is to launch investigative hearings in regard to Planned Parenthood,

    I’m sorry. Could you repeat what you were saying about failed strategies. I got distracted by this hysterical disembodied laughter. I was trying to figure out if it was Eric Holder or the ghost of Christopher Stevens I was hearing.

    It wasn’t a cackle, so I know it wasn’t Hillary Clinton.

  • A recent poll indicates that 46% approve of WTM Inc. Aka PP. I’ll bet most of these people voted twice for Obama, who is presiding over the dissolution of this once great country. When the people become dissolute (late 14c., “loose, negligent, morally or religiously lax,” from Latin dissolutus “loose, disconnected,”), the dissolution of the nation is inevitable.

  • Instapundit has a post stating that federally-funded PP funded progressive protesters that threw condoms at GOP Prez hopeful Carly Fiorina.

    In other news, GOP senate eunuchs refuse to rear up on their hind legs and defund.

  • dear kindred spirits in this blog -i’m still free falling from the pseudo- pastoral visit from the Pontifex Maximus!-
    FOXFIRE- you’re touching on something that may be at the core of the answer to this abortion issue – how do we pro-lifers add to the Corporal works a clause to help all mothers who have children under 24 months + + special needs – on a regular and irregular basis. When i was raising my young family of 5 including twins [74-82], and it is worse now!! it seemed all of society was against us- affordable homes only had 4 bedrooms, you could NOT buy a reasonable vehicle to carry 7 which became 9 in our case – every time we went out, my wife or i were asked : Are they all yours”?? Dr’s office nurses were relentless in their pushing of contraception and a condescending attitude of protege’s of Margaret Sanger – the evil looks i would get in super markets as I pushed a cart of kids with some groceries and wife pushed groceries with some kids…. aisle after aisle- check out was always are they all yours – my youngest when we’d go shopping the well meaning clerk would say ‘ – oh ! out with grand pa today huh?? and my daughter would correct them , forcibly, he’s not my grandpa , HE IS MY DAD!!!
    How do we blunt this societal attack on babies/ families causing the innate fear Foxfire is describing and provide total assurance and confidence to mothers and fathers of all christian faiths that there is a viable, dependable support group easily accessible for you and all your families. Could be a great job for ‘younger’ nursing home prisoners. and assisted living folks who may be looking for something more meaningful than caring for a pet. Even if it is just organized respite care for sleep deprived parents of the colic baby? or a regular ear to sit and listen over coffee when bringing a hot meal?? and being experienced parents, we could instruct the ignorant in child rearing and fear of the Lord. did we know this support once upon a time as a parish? Is this a potential for an apostolate? I’ve grown weary of waiting for Mother Church to get really aggressive on this while babies DIE and the March for Life is little more than a once a year ‘make believe we’re doing’ something self grandizing photo op for ineffective and clueless American Hierarchy.- thoughts….? shoot or salute- i may try and run with this locally and see how we do…..

  • @paul coffey.

    1 for salute.

    When Good Council Homes started up in 1985, they had to rely on prayer and financial support. That combination worked!
    Now with Fr. Benedict Groeschel to assist you from above, I would recommend you give Chris Bell a jingle, to see if he has some good advice to pass along. Chris and Father Benedict founded the successful Good Council Homes in N.J..

    Personally I think the idea is win / win for the stressed out families as well as the forgotten seniors in Assisted Living environments.

    With prayers…go out into the deep for a catch.
    Peace.

  • Paul Coffey – it can’t just be moms with kids– that’s damage control…or maybe an injury metaphor is better— it’s a hospital. The crisis pregnancy is the ER. What about the walking wounded?
    We need to try to figure out how to prevent the damage– keep folks at college from feeling so alone that they’ll share their bodies with total strangers, boy or girlfriends they don’t even especially like, because it’s better than being alone.
    ****
    I don’t know how to do this on a grand scale. I can do individual stuff.

  • Philip – Foxfire ; thanks!- I’m looking at the web site for Chris Bell’s Good Counsel homes in nj. and will take that idea forward to our parish pro life team which is pushing joining 40 days for life- I am still stuck on the ‘fear’ word Fox fire used in her earlier note- i know the feeling: when my wife came home after the OBGYN becoming pregnant 2+ years post our twin daughters birth – the dr. was convinced we were going to have twins again – turned out to be just a big bouncy 9lb 6 oz boy named jason paul …. and the dr did the same again 2+ yrs after Jason when 9 lb 8oz damien made his firs appearance…… I could have had my own Bell’s brigade!! i recall the fear and momentary despair whiizziing around my chair looking for a spine when getting the news from my tearfull wife ; thinking there is no one to ask for help with the upcoming workload and the day to day / sleepless nights child tending. i’m going to stop here cause i see good Counsel of N.J. as a ‘ home’ for unwed pregnant girls – VS. helping that group of married women who seek abortion for an ‘ unwanted = i’m scared and overworked and financially strapped” and my husband doesn’t want another child’ pregnancy. there is more than enough need out there- it all gets back to family as i think Firefox implies in her 2nd comment – it is the environment we create everywhere we touch ; take pride in your self, be clear that children are welcome and parenting is a tough job to do well and requires your total selfless giving all the time but i also see that flies in the face of the pagan culture i live in and i do not even have the support of the vicar of Christ. – but as someone on his blog pointed out, my faith is in the Christ ,, not the man in the chair. suggestions are always welcome and needed. pc

  • paul coffey.

    I realize that the home for unwed mothers isn’t the model you were looking for, but my aim was speaking with Chris for ideas that might construct a model of your own design.

    Reading Foxfier’s clear explanation of needs leads me to think of community service groups that are like minded in faith and faced with similar demands while not caving into the lure of false love. A christian community of women who meet regularly to share in tasks while giving others respite.
    (?)

  • Well….we might steal a page from what some churches do near military training bases– Pensacola was really good about that. Provide transport from colleges to things like a regular “hang out in the parish hall,” specifically for folks who are lonely.
    Set up “bring the kids to play” groups– a lady in a near by parish set up a home school PE class, hired an outside teacher and the moms can put the kids old enough for PE in the class, then go sit in the play room and let the little kids play while they get a bit of a break.
    My husband has gotten a lot of good from the local Knights of Columbus running the RE classes, and he actually joined. (Youngest guy in our area by at LEAST 20 years, although he’s talking to some of the guys he got to know in the “Catholicism refresher” classes.)
    **
    I tried to volunteer with our parish, but it’s all set up with the assumption that you will not have kids around. I’d love to help at the food bank– I can carry more than even the older gentlemen that help. But it’s…ah… not young family friendly, we’ll say.

The fifth video of The Center for Medical Progress illustrates just how eager Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. is to profit from the corpses of some of their victims.

A Planned Parenthood executive admits in an undercover video that her doctors alter abortion procedures and she manipulates prices to accommodate specific fetal tissue harvesting requests — including delivering fully intact fetuses — though doing so may violate federal law.

In the nearly 16-minute, edited video, the fifth released by Center for Medical Progress, a woman identified as Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discusses pricing for specimens — ranging from intact fetuses to tissue and organs — for outside tissue procurement companies.

“Yeah, and so if we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this,” Farrell said. “I mean it’s all just a matter of line items.”

  • Abortion is the liberal’s blood sacrament.

  • Can we finally put to bed the lie that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats when it comes to advancing the pro-life cause? I even see that canard repeated in posts on this site. Enough! It is the party of death.

  • Of course there’s a difference: the Democrats support abortion and do everything they can to keep it vibrantly alive; the Republicans talk about opposing abortion and do everything they can to just fail at putting a slight dent in it.

    Seriously – with a GOP controlled Congress, why haven’t they voted to not renew any grants, subsidies, etc. to PP? Why this kabuki theatre on “defunding” and the “Oh, we tried, but those dastardly Democrats foiled us again” trope? Why is it when the Dems want abortion to keep going, they can accomplish it even when they are in the minority, but the GOP can’t seem to get anything done about PP, even when in the majority? All they have to do is next time voting for funding this satanic cult comes around, vote “no.” A simple majority is all they need.

  • It is difficult to fathom that we tolerate – even defend as a right – what the Nazis did in concentration camps 70 years ago, and for which many were hung by the neck till they were dead. I sincerely hope and pray for a peaceable end to abortion, but Democrats did not give up slavery without a fight. 🙁 I hope we come to repentance on our own without the need for God to do what He did to Israel and Judah.

  • “Seriously – with a GOP controlled Congress, why haven’t they voted to not renew any grants, subsidies, etc. to PP?”

    Been there, done that. Obama vetoes the spending bill. The Government shuts down. The GOP gets a huge amount of bad press. The GOP caves.

  • Good answer Donald ?

  • The blue blood Republicans include a lot of folks (I call the country club set “snobs” ) who support abortion–plain & simple. What we conservative Republicans called the “blue bloods/old money/country club Republicans on the 1990s are now generally referred to as the “establish Republicans.” I was sent as a pro-life emissary to the Greater Little Rock Republican Women’s Club from the North Pulaski Republican Women’s Club during my younger years. Those two Republican womens’ clubs were at each others’ throats over the abortion issue (and drinking and fornicating and attending church, etc,). These women despised each other! The Greater Little Rock women were rabidly pro-choice. The North Pulaski women were rabidly pro-life. Acting as a peace making emissary, I was greatly resented and publicly mistreated by the pro-choice group.

    A staunchly pro-life young man whom I knew became the executive director of the state Republican party about this same time. Within a year of interacting with RNC power brokers as the executive director, the young man began to advise the pro-life folks in the party to basically pipe down because he didn’t want us running off more liberal folks. The executive director also recommended that we keep our mouths shut re: the sin of specifically homosexual sex acts–saying that the Republican Party must have a “big tent” philosophy.

    That type of battle had been going on long before I got involved and is still going on within the party today. The establishment types absolutely cannot stand people with my political and religious view points and work constantly to undermine any cannot who disagrees woth the RMC in explicit manners. In our state currently, Republican party power has been consolidated all the way from the liberals at the RNC to the lowliest precinct member on the county committee. No one gets raised to the federal level in our state whom the RNC cannot explicitly control once they arrive in Washington. such top down power was achieved through dictatorial use of our state party rules committee issuing edicts defining what would and could happen at the local levels. We conservatives despised the Democrat Party when it was operated In such a fashion. We have lost a lot of respect for the Republicans at the national level over these issues.

Narcissism and Love

PlannedParenthood-BodyPartsForSale-LionKilled-Outrage-Attrib-FB-MRC-NewsBusters-238x178

 

Andrew Klavan’s beloved dog is dying and he springboards that sad fact for a powerful meditation on a media that mourns a dead lion while attempting to conceal the deeds of Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc., that traffics in the body parts of some of its victims:

Narcissism should not be confused with self love, no matter what the dictionary tells you. Narcissism grows out of a sense that the self is fragile, that it will shatter in the presence of hostility or even bland contradiction. True love of self, used wisely, is a virtue. True love of self is the school of our affections. The Gospels tell us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves because it’s in true self love that we first learn forbearance, tolerance and kindness to someone very dear to us. With true love of self as a guide, our love for our pets can be a perfect training ground for a love of others.

In this, the love of animals is very like another kind of love: the love of a mother for her baby. That love, too, has a measure of narcissism in it. That love too attaches itself at first to a creature with no inner consciousness of its own.

 But a good mother knows that people don’t just live in space, they live in time as well. (This is the great point Peter Singer misses, by the way.) You are not just who you are, but also who you’ve been and who you will be. Likewise, a fetus is not just the creature it is, it is also the child it will become, and likewise the child is the adult it will grow into. A mother who lets the love for her baby grow as the baby grows, who learns to release her child into its own consciousness and yet loves it still even on into adulthood — she is the nearest exemplar to the gospel commandment we have this side of heaven. That’s why — no matter how many female soccer stars and talk show hosts and corrupt senators the media hold up for our veneration — the Good Mother remains our chief human image of love, sacrifice and virtue.

Narcissism or the golden rule; Cecil the lion or America’s murdered babies; to dance round the golden calf of our own egos or to worship in the temple of true love. In the media these last couple of weeks, we’ve seen what choice the powers-that-be would have us make. Let’s make another.

  • Thank God for perspective from reality.
    It sickening to see this time after time. A complete non-story to take the place of news of significance. The liberial Media Mobsters struck again. Short changing the American public and directing the attention of the viewers to drink arsenic instead of upholding their fiduciary responsibility.

    Thanks for Klavan’s message this morning.

    Our Good Mother leads us to everlasting waters of Life. Thanks be to God.

  • “Narcissism should not be confused with self love, no matter what the dictionary tells you. “
    Perhaps, we should consult the Devil’s Dictionary by Ambrose Bierce. “”I” is the first letter of the alphabet, the first word of the language, the first thought of the mind, the first object of the affections. In grammar it is a pronoun of the first person and singular number. Its plural is said to be “We,” but how there can be more than one myself is doubtless clearer to the grammarians than it is to the author of this incomparable dictionary. Conception of two myselves is difficult, but fine. The frank yet graceful use of “I” distinguishes a good author from a bad; the latter carries it with the manner of a thief trying to cloak his loot.”

  • Killing the lion who was a threat to no one was wrong. Killing innocent, defenseless children is infinitely more wrong.

  • Killing the lion who was a threat to no one was wrong”
    Was it wrong because it was not a threat? Or because it was a lion? I’m wondering who cries for cows and chickens. I’m having a ham sandwich for lunch.

  • Oh boy, here we go again. If I hunt and kill a deer or a moose or a turkey or a boar (hopefully without ccausing unnecessary suffering – a quick and decisive kill is best), and then use its flesh to provide food for my family, or in the case of a deer or similar animal use its hide to provide clothing for my family, then that is all well and good. If a lion or a tiger or a bear or a cougar or smiilar animal is attacking human beings and I kill the attacker, then that too is all well and good.
    .
    But if my ego needs just one more trophy please and I discard into refuse the flesh and the hide (how one can eat a lion’s flesh or employ its hide for clothing I do not know), but use the severed head as evidence of my jungle safari prowess, then I am an ass of a man and a waster of God’s good resources.
    .
    Now none of this compares to the torture by dismemberment and live vivisection of an unborn baby which Planned Parenthood routinely performs. The man who killed Cecil the lion should get some jail time and some mandatory community service (perhaps at a jungle preserve while disarmed). The man who murders unborn babies however merits the punishment visited on his Nazi forbearers who did the same thing in the concentration camps of WWII. There is a difference in degree of wrongness here. The first doesn’t adequately compare with the heinousness of the second. But that doesn’t make the first any less wrong than it really is. We are called upon to be stewards of the environment just as we are called upon to be loving parents. Both require personal responsibility and accountability.

  • Paul,
    I do not follow trophy hunting. The hunter may do nothing with it, but the processor might make sausage or animal feed. Some hunters do eat wild game. This type of hunting is not new.
    .
    I am not one against mink coats, bear rugs, lion blankets, or squashing bugs. However, I have a problem if the animal population is low. Poaching is a crime. Hunters should abide by the laws which govern what, when, and where one can hunt.
    .
    I completely agree with your PP assessment. Monsters. People used to scratch their heads wondering how people neighboring concentration camps could possibly turn a blind a eye. I ask the same of too many Americans today.

  • Kyle,
    .
    I am opposed to trophy hunting. Now if someone kills a lion because he has become a threat to the local people, or because the people in the local village may make use of the lion’s hide, or whatever, and the killing does not reduce the local lion population below viability, then that is all fine and good. Eat or otherwise make good use of what you kill. Don’t waste the providence which God provides. However, as I understand it, the dentist who killed Cecil the lion was after another trophy. This wasn’t a case of protecting villagers or even providing a rug for someone’s living room (though there are less expensive and more environmentally benign ways of providing said rug).
    .
    As for those who perform live vivisection on pre-born babies, you know where I stand about that. The Lord’s mercy for those babies will one day be the undoing of us all.

  • Animal trophies are a natural part of our Southern Culture. They are on office walls of lawyers & administrators & restaurants, and homes–all over the place!! Not only are they part of our culture, I think they are absolutely beautiful. If you have not seen a well preserved pheasant, then you are missing one of the most beautiful displays of God’s artwork on the face of the Earth.

    It is my understanding that any lion meat from such hunts as this dentist was on is required to be given to the locals for food. The money from the hunts provides jobs for locals as well as finding wild life conservation efforts.

    Hunting raises money needed for conservation of the animals being hunted & the environment in which they live (hence saving other species as well.). Hunting also helps to manage over population of given species (deer for instance here in AR.). When animals such as deer become too great in number, there is not enough food for them all which results in unnecessary suffering through starvation, sickness & disease, and death by predators taking advantage of animals in their weakened conditions. Here in AR, every year, hunters give hundreds of pounds of dear meat to charities which provide the free, high quality protein to the poor of our state for sustenance.

    I have been greatly amused by the horror surrounding “baiting” of an animal. One animal rights extremist became personally insulting with me when I pointed out to her that traps of all kinds are “baited,” and even hooks ate baited in order to get fish to bite a hook. Corn feeders are “baiting” deer.

  • Let me say, before I post the following link re: the hunting of lions, that I am livid those idiots killed a protected line. The nationals who were involved in that business should have the law book thrown at them because they knew better than what they did. Now, having said that, let me say that the feelings that I have re: the mutilation, torture, & selling of babies are so deep and so horrific that I don’t have the means in the English language to express them.

    Now, here is a relevant article about the necessity of hunting lions from the NT Times.

    http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/03/18/opinion/saving-lions-by-killing-them.html?referrer=

    Since this incident with the dentist is obviously being used by national & international animal rights extremists to push their political agenda, I am expecting a push for national legislation to stop Americans from going abroad & hunting and/ or bringing any part of their hunted animal home to the US with them.

  • Phillip said: “The liberial Media Mobsters struck again.”

    Just one animal rights extremist organization here in the US has billion dollar assets with which to push their political agendas through stories like what happened with this protected lion. They have big time PR & advertising departments.

  • “Was it wrong because it was not a threat? Or because it was a lion? I’m wondering who cries for cows and chickens. I’m having a ham sandwich for lunch.”

    Animal rights extremists, who ate pushing this lion story, religiously believe that to own or kill any animal is the same thing as owning or killing a human. I am NOT making this up. When it comes down to it, the animals are usually placed above humans in importance. Hence judges destroying thousands of acres of CA farm land & driving multigenerational farms, which grow food people need to eat, by denying them water–to save a few small fish.

  • I am livid those idiots killed a protected li[on]. The nationals who were involved in that business should have the law book thrown at them because they knew better than what they did.

    What they’re alleged to have done.

  • Ernest Said: “What they’re alleged to have done”

    Thank you, Ernest for the correction. If anyone should know that false accusations are regularly made re: animals by the media, it should be me. Sometimes, even I forget.

    One of my close friends had her horse ranch raided in 2010 by animal rights extremists under the color of law–she was charged with 25 felony counts of animal cruelty–all charges had to be dropped & her animals returned to her legal custody after 18 months & tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. All kinds of false allegations were made against her in the media. This friend is the only person in the US of whom I am aware who has received all of her animals back in relatively good health & has had all of the charges against her dropped. She is one tough bird!

    Another man I know, who owned a huge farm & sale barn business was raided by the same animal rights extremist orgs–they walked off with $325,000 worth of livestock belonging to 7 people from 3 states. Again there were all kinds of false, horrid accusations made in the media & on line re: this poor man. Again, after 4 years of legal tangling, around 100 counts of animal cruelty including some felonies had to be dropped.

    Another friend of mine, a dog breeder, who took her case all the way to our state supreme court after about 3 years of legal wrangling received right at 200 of her dogs back from a county “humane” society who had held them against a judges order for an extended period of time. Horrendous accusations were made against her in the media & on all kinds of online forums.

    Etc., etc., etc.

Internet Hitler Weeps for Planned Parenthood

Tuesday, July 28, AD 2015

 

Steve Hayward at Powerline gives us the dismay of Internet Hitler at the chaos caused to Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. by the undercover videos of The Center for Medical Progress.  Hitler and his colleagues are increasingly, in hindsight, merely unsuccessful vendors of the product of mass murder of one group of people to produce better living for another group.  Worse Than Murder, Inc. has demonstrated how the product can be marketed successfully:

1.  Use euphemisms like products of conception and reproductive rights to hide the reality of the mass slaying of innocents.

2.  Make sure that your chosen victims are voiceless and have zip political influence.

3.  Employ religious bigotry against those who complain of the mass murders.

4.  Define your victims as non-human, so their millions of deaths somehow do not count.

5.  Get the news and entertainment industries on your side, so that your victims will be forgotten as well as murdered, while your organization will be lauded and all criticism of it spiked by friendly “reporters”.

  • 9. Have bishops claim that a politician’s support for tax rate increases on the richest 20% offsets his support for abortion.

  • 10. Allow high-profile, pro-infanticide politicians to continue calling themselves Catholic.

  • 11. Infiltrate elementary schools using “safe sex” as a means to introduce abortion as a safe and acceptable solution if contraceptive’s fail.

  • One line to be added to Herr Fuurer’s rant.
    “But, then ve must think how many more little lives ve can squeeze into one train….saving fuel and reducing that evil CO2 polluting the Fatherland?”

  • 12. Siphon “abstinence education” millions from government – state and federal – using entities of, by and for Planned Parenthood, but without the PP name, by touting baby killing, drug abortions, and without-parental-knowledge implanted IUDs as “abstinence plus.” Guy McClung, San Antonio, Texas, once USA now USSA

  • 12. Keep the Worse than Murder, Inc. doctors and administrators well-supplied with salads and red wine, to further blur the sense of right, wrong, and monstrous wickedness.

  • Last night the History Channel ran another in its series about the Nazis in WWII. This one featured Auschwitz and the activities of Mengele, and his associates, “medical research” on children, especially identical twins. Like the PPA (Worse than Murder Inc.) videos, it was almost unwatchable, and for the same reasons. How anyone can reconcile their conscience with the diabolical evil of abortion, is beyond my comprehension. Involvement at the death camp drove one of doctors mentioned to suicide. I am sure there were many like that. The thought of it all makes one’s blood run cold. These scenarios are interchangeable, abortion, the death camps, the ISIS killing fields of the present day Middle-East, the Far-East and Africa. All these largely ignored by the mainstream media who avoid shining revealing light on the political heirs of the Third Reich.

  • Wm P. Walsh, Your comparison is spot on. See this: From Abyssum Abyssum, http://abyssum.org/2015/07/22/the-female-beasts-of-nazi-germany-are-still-alive-and-active-in-our-society/

    You can add Jill Laffer and the names of the PP women in the latest video to the list below:

    “You can now say these names in one breath: Richards, Koch, Gatter, Neudeck, Clinton, Mandel, Wattleton, Grese, Sanger, Nucatola, Binz, Pelosi, Lachert, Bosel, Waters, and Bothe. Read descriptions of female Nazi concentration overseers, nurses and personnel – monsters like Ilse Koch, Irma Grese, Dorothea Binz, Greta Bosel, Herta Bothe, Hildegard Lachert, Ruth Neudeck, and Maria Mandel – and their actions, particularly those of nurses and doctors; listen to their crimes-against-humanity trial testimony or read it; learn about the acts of utter depravity, torture, sadism, and satanic cruelty they engaged in on a daily basis as the camps; and then remember speeches and recordings you have heard over the years from Faye Wattleton, Margaret Sanger, Cecile Richards, Mary Gatter, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, and politicains like Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters. Consider the recent revelations of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of human body parts; their efforts to carefully crush babies without crushing their organs, and efforts to develop “less crunchy” techniques for insuring that hearts and livers and kidneys are not damaged as babies are cut, crushed and die.”

  • Ignorance is bliss for the mass murderer supporters. Just keep feeding them homosexuality’s liberation victory celebration’s and coddle them with fashion’s that tickle their attention, then as the Lord said, they we’re unprepared for the bride groom, for their lamp’s were empty of oil.

    Mr. Walsh. The scenarios are indeed interchangeable. The Great and terrible day is coming. Ten thousand years from now or at the last beat of anyone’s heart, the day of judgment comes. Best to keep our lamp’s trimmed and full of oil.

An Apology

Monday, July 27, AD 2015

(I originally wrote this about five years ago when the blog readership was much smaller.  I reran it a early last year.  Now that Planned Parenthood is back in the news,  I thought that current readers might wish to know why I refer to Planned Parenthood as Worse Than Murder, Inc.)

Lately, in several posts, I have been in the habit of referring to Planned Parenthood as Murder, Inc.  I apologize for doing so.  It was unfair of me to draw this type of comparison.

 

In the late twenties of the last century, gangsters Charles “Lucky” Luciano and Meyer Lansky set up the National Crime Syndicate.  Organized crime needed a mechanism to keep anarchy from breaking out within its ranks between various gangs and factions.  Operating out of a 24 hour candy store in the Brownsville neighborhood of Brooklyn, Murder, Inc. ( the name was a newspaper invention) provided this mechanism.  Louis “The Judge” “Lepke” Buchalter and Albert “The Mad Hatter” Anastasia were the leaders of Murder, Inc.

The Syndicate, by majority vote, would order the slaying of an unruly gangster and Murder, Inc would carry it out.  The hitmen of Murder, Inc. operated under strict guidlines.  No innocent bystanders were to be killed.  No hits could be ordered against judges, police or prosecuting attorneys for fear of reprisals from law enforcement.

Over the years Murder, Inc. murdered some 800 fellow gangsters.  In 1940 the downfall of the murder enterprise began when Murder, Inc. killer Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles, turned informant in order to save himself from the electric chair.  Louis “The Judge” “Lepke” Buchalter died in the chair in Sing Sing in 1944, after the US Supreme Court rejected his appeal which raised, among other issues, the contention of Buchalter that lurid press coverage had tainted the jury.  Other Murder, Inc. members swiftly followed “The Judge” down the last mile.  Albert “The Madhatter” Anastasia would have followed in their footsteps but for the tragic “accidental” death of Abe ‘Kid Twist’ Reles when he fell from room 623 of the Half Moon Hotel on Coney Island.  In the gang world he was ever after known as “The Canary that sung but couldn’t fly.”  However, with the attention of law enforcement focused upon it, Murder, Inc. could no longer function and it ceased to exist except as a gangland legend.

Based upon this grim record I hope you can see why it is necessary for me to apologize—to Murder, Inc.

    Today, it’s called the two party system in Washington….

  • Worse than Murder Inc. & the Aztec Holy Man of centuries ago.

    To their respective God’s they rip and tare the flesh out of the intended sacrificial human victim. The heart still beating, the Holy men rejoice in their craft. The power to take human life…it’s as if they themselves are God.
    The God of the newly liberated woman who worship burden free lifestyle, has participated in a human sacrifice not unlike the Aztec of old. The God is themselves. “Who is like unto God?” ….and St. Michael cleared the Heaven of the unfaithful self absorbed. He is about to go to work again on the Gods of this world.

    Prayers for conversion are needed!

  • 7. Murder Inc. had inferior tastes for alcoholic beverages and automobiles. “Worse than” attempts to personify classy erudite upscale values (OK, this is an expansion on #5, but I couldn’t resist)

  • The biggest issue is that Planned Parenthood’s killing is approved by the state. So what would stop a new organization, say Happy Living, Inc., allowing folks or their guardians to simply terminate themselves or those who didn’t meet certain standards, e.g., inconvenience. This is happening now mostly in a sub rosa sort of way.

    I think we are experiencing more of holocaust than Murder, Inc.

  • Michael Dowd said; “I think we are experiencing more of holocaust than Murder, Inc.”

    Agreed. A wider scope for one thing. This new holocaust encompasses multiple layers of victims who are systematically exterminated under the false banner of mercy.
    A Nazi dream come true.

    If Hell has an entrance, it is the progressive liberial. A welcoming committee that is as sinister as it is demonic. Guess what?
    Hell is unleashed on earth. Look at its mascot… Hillary Clinton. She can’t wait to do the bidding for her Father. He is laughing and smiling as countless minions sign on board to live the nightmare.

    If reincarnation was a reality, we are seeing Margaret Sanger in Hillary Clinton. Something Hillary would be proud of. Religions must change their beliefs, said the devil at a meeting of abortion supporters not long ago.
    She is popular. She is the entrance to Hell.

Limbaugh on Planned Parenthood

Friday, July 24, AD 2015

 

 

 

 

 

Rush Limbaugh tends to take a lot of grief from Catholic commenters.  Some of it is deserved, but much of it is not.  When it comes to abortion, he has been one of the major media voices opposing it relentlessly for over a quarter of a century.  When he dies he will have his sins to answer for as we all will.  He will also have tens of millions, who never got to speak in this Vale of Tears, eloquently pleading his case before the Most High.  Here is Limbaugh on the current Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. atrocity:

Well, now we know why the advocates for the right to choose have been so advocating.  Always try to follow the money.  Here are these leftists that want everybody to believe that they don’t care about money, that everything they do is charitable because they’re nice people and they are compassionate and they’re understanding and they’re all for protecting the little people who get trampled on by the big people, and look who is doing the trampling. 

The greatest example of the essence of innocence that I can conjure, a baby in the womb.  I mean, it hasn’t done anything to anybody.  It represents and is new life.  It is the essence of innocence.  It cannot speak for itself.  It cannot protect itself.  It cannot defend itself.  While being the essence of innocence, it is the most vulnerable it will ever be.  And here come the people promising and telling and guaranteeing that they are protecting the rights of the little people, that they protecting the vulnerable, they’re making sure that the little guy, the vulnerable, the powerful, don’t get trampled on by who?  The rich, the powerful.  Usually this means Republicans. 

And yet in another case study of reality, exposing fraud, who actually is trampling over the defenseless, the innocent, the vulnerable?  The very damn people who claim to be their protectors, the protectors of liberty, individual rights, the right to choose, what have you.  The same people who want these body parts for stem cells that have yet to prove worthy of research, worthwhile, any of that.  It is just sick and it is completely and totally unremarked upon in the Drive-By Media. 

Carly Fiorina this morning on her Facebook released a new video responding to this second and latest Planned Parenthood secretly recorded video.

**************************************************

Somebody just asked me, “Rush, how can these people do this?  How can they not know what they’re doing to a baby?”  Ladies and gentlemen, I wish I could answer that for you.  I mean, these are the people that are extracting what they hope are workable, usable body parts. They’re taking great, great care not to crunch, not to crush, so what they extract are actual what they hope usable baby body organs they can sell. 

Now, how a person or the people doing this can then turn around and say that what they’re dealing with is an “unviable tissue mass,” I can only the guess.  I think you have to have the concept of evil. You have to understand it, and you have to acknowledge that it exists.  It’s a real thing.  It’s the same people that say “unviable tissue mass” or it’s actually an illness, pregnancy leads to an illness and so forth.

Every crazy justification they’ve offered for abortion, the very same people doing that are now extracting usable body parts and selling them for profit.  I mean, what are they telling themselves about what they’re doing?  They’re probably lying to themselves about medical research and saving lives.  They probably come up with “one life to save millions.”  It’s probably not hard to imagine the contortions they undergo to justify this. But the clearly think they’re doing a service.

They clearly believe they are serving mankind and medical research.

But to anybody with common decency, it’s just sick.  And it’s something that I dare say the vast majority of people in this country would never, ever dream would happen here.  We went to war to stop people like this before!

  • I’ve always liked Rush. Even when he had his drug issues and people wanted to discount what he said. I didn’t understand what they meant & they couldn’t understand that “truth is still truth, even if a druggie says it.”

  • Whatever Rush Lmbaugh’s siins are, I have always liked him as well. I suspect my sins outweigh his, and his efforts for the unborn outweigh mine.
    .
    As for the people of Planned Parenthood, what they are doing is what the Nazis who stood trial at Nuremburg had done.

  • Dittos. I don’t get to listen to him much, but I like him. My dad liked him as well.

    ” I mean, what are they telling themselves about what they’re doing? They’re probably lying to themselves about medical research and saving lives. They probably come up with “one life to save millions.” It’s probably not hard to imagine the contortions they undergo to justify this.”
    .
    Perhaps, because I haven’t been able to listen in quite some time, I’m misreading Rush here, that he seems a bit mystified about these people in what they are thinking and doing and why they don’t stop and see what they are doing is evil.
    .
    Some years ago, my dad observed that other scientists around him in the chemical industry (but it could have been in other ones as well) would spend years going down a wrong path…and yet even when all the evidence was there that they were wrong, they stayed wrong. Why? Too much life invested in being wrong. Too much ego. I would add too much money made, and hey, those scientists (and likely abortionists as well) have kids to put through college. Where are these “tissues” going anyway? Your local state university, especially if it has some kind of medical school or cadaver lab.
    .
    I had a friend take to Facebook recently trying to justify this, and it seemed to me she was trying to continue to justify to herself her “pro-choice” stance. And it was so sad. I got the impression she knew this was wrong, but gosh, she has spent her life being a feminist and pro-choice. Who wants to wake up one day and realize he has wasted his life-time and energy-into being so very, very wrong?

  • Ah, the Mengeleites have been exposed for what they really…and so much of the world shrugs.
    What they are selling is “sustainable” parts.
    Meanwhile the friends of the UN say: hey, as long as we can prevent some CO2 from harming the world?

  • Pope Francis, Cardinal Dolan, Bishop Murphy (LI NY), USCCB, catholic-in-name-only colleges/universities, et al . . . deafening silence.
    .
    Is Rush more Christian than that pope and American catholic elites????
    .
    I’m coming to believe certain black-hearted protestant slanders. The crickets tell me that many so-called Catholics are not Christians.

  • Yup – peace, justice, mercy and hope that this, too, will pass with the appearance of some other atrocity(s).

    Silence was golden when people were still learning to think.
    In cases, such as infanticide (described in biblical stories with morality interwoven) , self control, miscarriages of justice, and inhumanity – willful murder – silence from ‘men of God’ is an embarrassing atrocity. Moloch has got their tongues, and they’ll yet again waste WYD giving no legacy to those who are truly poor in knowledge of Christianity and the essential narrow gate.

  • “I’m coming to believe certain black-hearted protestant slanders. The crickets tell me that many so-called Catholics are not Christians.”

    The truth is that so many Christians are not Christians. It is not slanderous to say so, except when seeing motes and not beams.

    If only we really thought about what we mean when we say “I do” to the question “Do you reject Satan?” during the recommitment of our baptismal vows. Over and over it can be maintained that we fail to exercise our moral imaginations, we fail to think about how Evil can grow and reach into our lives. We fail to see life as it is, we sleepwalk through life with our sweet dreams, and we are then surprised when Evil is dug out of it’s dens.

  • T. Shaw, you’re just “starting” to release “that many so called Catholics are not Christians.?”

    42 years post Roe v Wade, Catholics are still the largest single group to be endorsing with their names and supporting with their votes the only pro-abortion political party supportive of and promoting abortion while being 100% apposed to a Right-to-Life Constitutional Amendment. That support gives the Democratic Party the ELECTORAL POWER to keep abortion legal, and in doing so, supports Planned Parenthood with over !/2 billion $$$$ a year or taxpayer’s money to salvage useable, viable body parts from that “mass of tissue cells” being butchered that somehow has manufactured.

  • T. S. make that “realize.”

    I fight for the unborn, first of all, because I had a year of embryology in college, including lab work in which I created “new” life by dissecting chick embryos up to x number of hours after conception and re-cultured those slices in which they grew into new complete embryos. Those early cells are called stem cells today. Science does not know, yet, how to “control” their growth.

    But, I returned to the faith of my upbringing after college and Roe v. Wade, to correct the wrong done by that Supreme Court ruling. I knew when life begins. I find myself fighting the U.S. bishops who have all but abandon the unborn in favor of “the poor, and peace, and justices,” I have discovered that the biggest opponent the unborn have are “faithful Catholics” who endorse the pro-abortion Democratic Party. It is a major sin to join the KKK, or the Nazi Party, a mortal sin, with no exonerating conditions. The sin of joining those organizations is against the 5th Commandment, in Catholic teaching. How, then, can joining the Democratic Party NOT be a mortal sin? It’s a mortal sin with no exonerating conditions to join organizations that promote racial and religious discrimination, but it is NOT a sin to join an organization that supports and promotes the murder of innocent unborn babies those Catholics profess to believe are created by God?

    I’m concerned that those Catholics, including the clergy at the highest levels, are going to find themselves being told by Jesus, upon his return, to line up on “is left side.” And they will exclaim how that can be when they did so much for “the poor and strangers.” Needless to say, the bishops have interpreted Mt. 25, 35 for political reasons, for the benefit of the Democratic Party. Read the footnote in the Catholic New American Bible – to learn why those Catholics,, especially the clergy, are risking their salvation.
    And read why Cardinal Bernardine accepted the offer to be the Chairman of the U.S. Bishops’ Pro-life Committee upon the condition that he was going to expand the definition of pro-life “to keep the pro-life movement from falling completely under control of the right wing conservatives who were becoming its dominant sponsors.” (‘Cardinal Bernardin’ sub title “Easing conflicts – and battling for the soul of American Catholics” pages 243, 244; by 30 year long friend Eugene Kennedy. The Cardinal lived 7 years after this book was published and never refuted what the author friend wrote.)

    BTW, Cardinal Bernardin was the “official leader of Chicago Catholics (the largest community of Catholics in the U.S.) and Chicago, is a city run by Mayor and 50 City Council Members called Aldermen; the Mayor and all 50 Alderman are elected Democrats. The Cardinal , and the U.S. bishops, added non sinful, prudential judgement issues to the meaning of “pro-life;” issues that the Church teaching favored liberal Democrat positions.

  • Oh, I heard Rush’s broadcast the day he talked about PPH. He spent the first hour and a half discussing it while every other talk radio or TV show was talking about Donald Trump and what he was saying.

  • Rush Limbaugh has always been the greatest defender of Holy Mother Church.
    More so then the well known Cardinals and Bishops that hob nob with the Catholic pro choice friends of PPH.
    He will have those millions of defenseless babies aborted to speak on his behalf.
    He is fearless and certainly not lukewarm, and defends the truth.
    God Bless and protect him.

  • Limbaugh’s failed marriages and his oxycontin addiction have done nothing to dull his razor sharp mind when it comes to the current political landscape.

    One must understand that Limbaugh is an entertainer who uses politics and his conservative viewpoints to entertain, inform and bring to light that which the Democrat Party and its allies want to remain hidden.

    The Catholic Church in North America treated Vatican II as if an entirely new church was started. Almost everything before it was sent to the dumpster and modernism was embraced. Ugliness was the new norm in church architecture and blandness was the new norm in the liturgy. The Church changed its focus from being with Christ in the next life to being an anti-poverty group – with government subsidies.

    The hierarchy is Democrat and wants to stay that way. This has NOT changed since Vatican II. Thus we have the silence on abortion, artificial birth control and homosexuality. Thus we have the attitude to “let ’em all in” when it comes to immigration, whining about the rarely used death penalty and tacit support for federal government expansion into healthcare.

    Being Catholic isn’t about idolizing our clergy, be it priests, bishops or the Pope. It is about worship of Christ. Church history tells us of the many times the Church leaders screwed things up. Reform will come from the remnant of the laity.

  • Donald,

    I ran across this article today. It has been completely ignored by Fox News. I would suspect because they’re in the tank for Jeb Bush. This is a huge story. Bush is another cafeteria Catholic, who claims he’s pro-life, but has exceptions for rape, incest and “life of the mother”. Now this revelation……..

Veil of Lies

Wednesday, July 22, AD 2015

 

My favorite liberal, Kirsten Powers, has a first rate column on the Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. videos:

 

Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards apologized last week for the uncompassionate tone her senior director of medical research, Deborah Nucatola, used to explain the process by which she harvests aborted body parts to be provided for medical research.

Nucatola had been caught on an undercover video talking to anti-abortion activists posing as representatives of a biological tissue procurement company. The abortion doctor said, “I’d say a lot of people want liver,” and “a lot of people want intact hearts these days.” Explaining how she could perform later-term abortions to aid the harvesting of such intact organs, she said, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

A second undercover video released Tuesday shows another Planned Parenthood official talking about using a “less crunchy” way to perform abortions while preserving salable fetal tissue.

This is stomach-turning stuff. But the problem here is not one of tone. It’s the crushing. It’s the organ harvesting of  fetuses that abortion-rights activists want us to believe have no more moral value than a fingernail. It’s the lie that these are not human beings worthy of protection. There is no nice way to talk about this. As my friend and former Obama White House staffer Michael Wear tweeted, “It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them.”

Richards worked to discredit the video by complaining it was “heavily edited.” But the nearly three-hour unedited video — a nauseating journey through the inner workings of the abortion industry — was posted at the same time as the edited video. Richards intoned menacingly that the video was “secretly recorded.” So what? When Mitt Romney was caught by “secret video” making his 47% remarks, the means of attaining the information was not the focus of the story.

  • “The pro-aborts have never gotten much beyond their a “mere clump of cells” defense of abortion that I heard back when the abortion battle was new in the seventies”

    Is that really true?

    In his Rethinking Life and Death (1996), Princeton bioethicist, Peter Singer submitted that “[The argument that a fetus is not alive] is a resort to a convenient fiction that turns an evidently living being into one that legally is not alive. Instead of accepting such fictions, we should recognise that the fact that a being is human, and alive, does not in itself tell us whether it is wrong to take that being’s life” and goes on to justify both abortion and infanticide.

    In 2012 a paper in the Journal of Medical Ethics, “After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, expressed similar views.

    This is implicit in the Veil Law ((Law No. 75-17 of January 1975, concerning the Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy), “The law guarantees respect for every human being from the outset of life. There shall be no derogation from this principle except in cases of necessity and under the conditions laid down by this Law,”

    As Miss Anscombe pointed out, as long ago as 1958, “In present-day philosophy an explanation is required how an unjust man is a bad man, or an unjust action a bad one; to give such an explanation belongs to ethics; but it cannot even be begun until we are equipped with a sound philosophy of psychology. For the proof that an unjust man is a bad man would require a positive account of justice as a “virtue.” This part of the subject-matter of ethics, is however, completely closed to us until we have an account of what type of characteristic a virtue is – a problem, not of ethics, but of conceptual analysis – and how it relates to the actions in which it is instanced: a matter which I think Aristotle did not succeed in really making clear.” On this, I do not believe we are much further forward.

  • “Is that really true?”

    Yep, outside of ivory tower “bio-ethicists”, and what an Orwellian formulation that is in his case, like Singer, pro-aborts would sooner eat ground glass than defend an accurate account of what goes on daily in the abortion mills.

    From an abortion mill in New York:
    “Contrary to anti-choice rhetoric, abortion does not kill babies or children. Abortion does not kill persons. Abortion is only performed before a person is formed and long before viability or any consciousness, which is the ultimate determination of personhood.”

    http://www.libertywomenshealth.com/rtc.php

  • Where are our bishops? Where is the USCCB? Where is the outrage and, action as a result? PP must be defunded. There will be no better time.

  • Judging from their news releases, the USCCB could care less about this story:

    http://www.usccb.org/news/

    “1Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, 2saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; 3therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.…”

    At least the Scribes and Pharisees gave their flocks empty words. Our Bishops do not even do that. I do not doubt that the word has gotten around that a Bishop being strong against abortion and taking actions to match his words, is not a good career move under the current Pontificate.

  • “Abortion is only performed before a person is formed…”

    Certainly, so preposterous an argument played no part in the debates that led to the Veil Law and would have had little traction in a country where the common term for an abortionist is « faiseuse d’anges » or “angel-maker.”

  • Wrong. Cecile Richards did not apologise. Nor did she come close to apologising.

    She did the following:

    A) Justify the practise of donating the tissue of the aborted babies for scientific research by likening it to regular organ donation. A complete falsehood because in regular organ donation scenarios, the person must sign a consent form. The aborted child has not consented, and never can. How stupid is this woman.

    B) Undermined the clear video evidence, as an example of the disgusting organisation she heads, by claiming the video was heavily edited. And those that never bother to lightly scratch the surface on this claim will believe her.

    My blood boils.

    Cecile Richards is a bald-faced liar.

    And I hope, for her sake, she doesn’t end up in that special seat that the devil has carved especially for her in the fiery depths of hell.

    An evil evil lady.

  • “Judging from their news releases, the USCCB could care less about this story:”

    But they are showing great strength of character in supporting the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

  • “pro-aborts would sooner eat ground glass than defend an accurate account of what goes on daily in the abortion mills”

    I note that GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina (officially a “pro-choice” “moderate”) sent out the following tweet yesterday with a link to the PP video: “Whether you’re a pro-choice woman or a pro-life woman, this video is depraved.”

  • For Cecile Richards. “I believe Man’s soul is immortal…. and will be treated with justice in another life respecting it’s conduct in this.”
    -Benjamin Franklin

    The justice that is not present in this life will, without a doubt, be present and final in the life to come. Watching C.Richards in the clip called to mind a puppet on a string. She did her floppy dance for the audience while Satan worked the strings.

    Poor soul.
    Let our prayer ask God for her conversion before she becomes another satanic toy for eternity.
    While we’re at it… ask God for help defUNding Murder Inc. $500,000,000 a year! This country has been desensitized and it may need shock-treatment as to appreciate the gift of life.

  • What did the Lord God do to King Manasseh for making his children to walk through the fire in sacrifice to Molech? Will God change His response? Or does God remain the same? Jezebel was thrown out the window to the dogs for stealing Naboth the Jezreelite’s vineyard and arranging for his murder. What should Cecile Richards expect?

  • PS I oppose violence. My questions are rhetorical. But even Robespierre got what he gave. That’s how God set up the Universe. Sow death, reap death. Lord have mercy – and He will – on the unborn babies. But nobody should throw PP people out windows. Let God do that if He so elects.

  • “What should Cecile Richards expect?”
    .

    Thomas Meagher in a 1848 Dublin statement upon his conviction and death sentence said that we will all appear before another judge (God), one of infinite justice and mercy; and that many of the decisions of this fell World will be reversed.
    .

    I assume (you know what that means) the liberal anticipates oblivion: nothingness. They only have concerns about this world and its their sole duty to make it (what they feel is) better.
    .
    In charity, we should attempt to persuade her to convert; to repent; to do penance; to amend her life; and to do good works to glorify God. For that, we would be labeled haters.
    .
    Catholics would be concerned with the last things: death, judgment, Heaven or Hell. The PP apologists and democrat voters should be terrified about judgment: Whatsoever you did to the least of my brothers . . . FYI Christ isn’t working a set of scales: one mortal sin and you’re literally toast; voting to raise someone (who you hate) else’s taxes to pay more welfare isn’t one of the corporal works of mercy. Someone tell that to OH Gov. Kasich.

  • T.Shaw-

    “For that we (could) be labeled haters.”

    We already are labeled haters for admonishing our wayward neighbors. Oh well. We do what were asked and with love we try to help them.
    It’s very difficult when the word sin is not in their vocabulary.

    I’ve been told by aquantices that they have never sinned. They just made bad choices that’s all.

    Funny world…sort of.

  • One of the Spiritual Works of Mercy is “Admonish the sinner.” Charity for one’s neighbor includes concern for others’ eternal lives. By His life, death, and Resurrection Christ purchased for us the rewards of eternal life.
    .
    Christ descended from Heaven in order to convert us, not to promise us a “rose garden” in the here-and-now.
    .

    Mankind’s worst defeat (in the struggle for salvation) at Satan’s hand was when the demon deceived so, so many that he and sin do not exist.
    .

    Another gang that (I think) are in deep spiritual distress and denial believe that they have no sin and ergo are “arrogant (not poor) in spirit.”
    .

    Every time I see/hear the lie “Love wins” I silently scream “Sin wins.”
    .
    We live in a fallen World. It’s a Vail of Tears. And, it’s spiritually crash-diving faster than Hell. God help us.

  • T Shaw writes, “I’ve been told by aquantices that they have never sinned. They just made bad choices that’s all.”

    It is axiomatic that acts of the understanding are specified by their object and this should remind us that good and bad choices are no more equivalent than apprehension and misapprehension, truth and error are equivalent species of an identical genus; rather, bad choices are paralogisms, as Aristotle calls them (παραλογισμός = Unreasonable or fallacious). The good choice, “This – being such – is to be done,” is intelligible, because intelligent; the act of the bad will is a surd, ultimately unintelligible. True enough, we can often trace its causes to instinctive or dispositional factors, but it remains logically incoherent.

    That is why Aristotle insists that “All wicked men are ignorant of what they ought to do, and what they ought to avoid; and it is this very ignorance which makes them wicked and vicious. Accordingly, a man cannot be said to act involuntarily merely because he is ignorant of what it is proper for him to do in order to fulfil his duty. This ignorance in the choice of good and evil does not make the action involuntary; it only makes it vicious. The same thing may be affirmed of the man who is ignorant generally of the rules of his duty; such ignorance is worthy of blame, not of excuse” (EN 110b 25)

  • Thank you MPS.
    You’ve opened the door to this idea of bad choices vs. sin, with the help of Aristotle it’s ignorance of duty vs. due diligence.
    As always… great points and interesting food for thought. I will be better prepared to help them.

  • The “Love Wins” bumper sticker calls to my mind the final victory. Many who promote the message may not be aware of the author of Love. If so, the time will come when the meaning of the message might take them by surprise.

  • “I’ve been told by aquantices that they have never sinned. They just made bad choices that’s all.

    Funny world…sort of.”

    My thoughts exactly Phillip.

    Again, too many do not want to scratch the surface, in other words, they refuse to reason that a bad choice goes against what is universally right. Going against what is right or good is going against the natural order. Which is what we define as sin.

    Many choose to stay in a state of confusion.

    Funny world indeed.

  • “From an abortion mill in New York:
    “Contrary to anti-choice rhetoric, abortion does not kill babies or children. Abortion does not kill persons. Abortion is only performed before a person is formed and long before viability or any consciousness, which is the ultimate determination of personhood.””
    How do they know that the person is not acknowledging God in his transcendent soul while growing his body to worship and praise God in his immortal soul? How do they know? this elite intelligentsia is phishing and coming up with their wishful thinking that does not have a shred of proof or evidence, and is nothing more than hearsay in a court of law. Margaret Sanger said that we are” human weeds”. After God is removed from the public square, Planned Parenthood is saying that we are nothing more that a clump of cells. pink slime. This person is a constitutional posterity of George Washington and so are all other persons conceived. This person is also a constitutional posterity of Margaret Sanger. and now, I am a constitutional posterity of Cecile Richards and she would mutilate me as a clump of cells in a blender to get my stem cells. Freedom for all persons and our constitutional posterity.

  • Mary,

    The crux of pro-abortion and all liberal projects is that they, not God or facts or data or hundreds of years of culture, make the determinations. They not only deny God and objective truth, they usurp God’s Will as to who lives and who dies. They exhibit peak hypocrisy whenever they utter the words “death penalty.”
    .

    Soon they will be establishing death panels to rid the World of aged and infirm people.

  • Can I drive over the Coochs Bridge Road without remembering T. Shaw?
    The principle of separation of church and state is used to silence church members, while the unborn have their souls separated from their bodies. The Court has made atheism, abortion and sodomy of “We, the people”, “We, the people” who constitute the government, while catering to sodomites, atheists and abortionists. Equal Justice.

Hitler Wants His Royalties

Tuesday, July 21, AD 2015

 

A second video is out by those redoubtable video warriors at The Center for Medical Progress showing a Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. ghoul demonstrating yet again that you can put a price on human life and human body parts.

Father Z gives us the details:

Never has the label “Big Business Abortion” been more appropriate for Planned Parenthood. HERE

Another video is out, showing a PP exec negotiating the price of body parts of babies.

Planned Parenthood receives million of YOUR tax dollars.

A new undercover video shows a top Planned Parenthood official discussing “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.”

The video released Tuesday morning, the second put out by the Center for Medical Progress, features a woman identified as Dr. Mary Gatter, who was president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council until 2014 and now works in a leadership and advisory capacity at the local and national level of the organization. Over drinks, Gatter and the undercover activists discuss “specimen” prices, eventually settling at $100 for “intact tissue.”

    While we’re at it, a quondam member of Congress cannot make sense of our zombie congressional caucus, much less can an ordinary voter.

    I have to use prose to express myself:

    Then the Lord said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me.”

    Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What has the cities done?”

    The Lord said, “The blood of their children cry out in pain, spilled from the warmth of their mothers’ bodies before ever tasting the air. Their bones groan under the weight of the coins paid for them that the inhabitants might squeeze another year of life into themselves.”

    Abraham stood silent a moment in thought.

    Finally he turned his back on the direction of the cities and spoke again: “Burn it all. The righteous will understand why.”

  • I am sure that the SS as they harvested parts of the Jews they murdered could honestly claim that they were a non-profit organization. I recall Rudolf Hoess, the commandant of Auschwitz, stressed in his defense that he had issued strict orders against his men personally stealing from their Jewish victims. He also claimed that he had regulations against abuse of the Jews. As he said to his men, they are sent here to be killed, not to be abused. A common tactic of monsters is to point to small ways in which they can present a somewhat normal façade, while seeking to ignore what they are doing that makes them monsters. Hence Planned Parenthood raises the mendacious defense of merely accepting donations, as if that makes any difference to their ghoulish selling, or “donating”, parts of the corpses of their tiny victims.

  • “Finally he turned his back on the direction of the cities and spoke again: “Burn it all. The righteous will understand why.””

    Jeremiah 32:35:

    And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

  • I have spent, over the decades, many a hour pondering why the German people (Christians) could eagerly support and even adore a man of evil such as Adolph Hitler. Then I read a lot about the Nazi Docktors and Mengele, who also sought medical scientific knowledge by doing the most un-Godlike things to God’s innocent people. He fled to (sanctuary city?) Argentina after the war and became…… an abortionist.
    I fully believe that we in the USA have traveled the same path morally. In fact, one could argue that most of the German people may not have known of the evil they unleashed with their support of Hitler. We did and we do, so there is no excuse for America to be relieved of the damning responsibility of our part in a morally similar evil–even down to those conservatives who insist upon setting aside “cultural issues” until after each election. They fool no one.
    We have become a depraved evil nation; may God have pity on us.

  • Let’s be clear. There would be no legal abortion if voters did not elect Democrats. That continues to occur because self-identified Catholics continue to vote for Democrat politicians. If the “Catholic” vote abandoned the Democratic party tomorrow, PP would be defunded rather swiftly. It won’t happen, even after these horrific videos reveal the truth of abortion.

  • “There would be no legal abortion if voters did not elect Democrats.”
    I would like to believe that, but I don’t think the GOP of today has the courage of the Republicans of 1854.

  • Kyle’s is correct. It doesn’t excuse voting democrat. They’ll get it when they face St. Peter.
    .
    Elections would be only indirectly effective to curtail abortion. So, forget the GOP. When the cowards had the WH and Congress, they couldn’t place sufficient numbers of pro-life judges. And, they fold like cheap cameras on judge nominations when the damned, hellion democrats control the WH and Congress.

    re-NaZIS-SEE BELOW:

    BLOODY RICHARDS, HYENA GRESE, HILLARY THE BEAST, PELOSI THE BUTCHER, MONSTER GATTER, NUCATOLA MENGELE, AND KOCH THE BITCH

    You can now say these names in one breath: Richards, Koch, Gatter, Neudeck, Clinton, Mandel, Wattleton, Grese, Sanger, Nucatola, Binz, Pelosi, Lachert, Bosel, Waters, and Bothe. Read descriptions of female Nazi concentration overseers, nurses and personnel – monsters like Ilse Koch, Irma Grese, Dorothea Binz, Greta Bosel, Herta Bothe, Hildegard Lachert, Ruth Neudeck, and Maria Mandel – and their actions, particularly those of nurses and doctors; listen to their crimes-against-humanity trial testimony or read it; learn about the acts of utter depravity, torture, sadism, and satanic cruelty they engaged in on a daily basis as the camps; and then remember speeches and recordings you have heard over the years from Faye Wattleton, Margaret Sanger, Cecile Richards, Mary Gatter, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, and politicains like Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters. Consider the recent revelations of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of human body parts; their efforts to carefully crush babies without crushing their organs, and efforts to develop “less crunchy” techniques for insuring that hearts and livers and kidneys are not damaged as babies are cut, crushed and die.

    Consider that the Nazis were the model of efficiency in processing subhumans, including over 6,000,000 Jews through their “camps.” Upon arrival, unless deemed extraordinarily beautiful, all children and babies were sent for immediate gassing and execution. Shortly after arrival, all prisoners were shorn of all their hair. The hair was made into felt and thread; made into socks for submarine crews, ignition mechanisms in bombs, ropes and cords for ships; and used in pillows and mattresses for soldiers, and, since it expands and contracts uniformly, it was used in delayed action bombs. Camp commanders were required to submit monthly reports about how much hair had been collected. Human skulls were made into ashtrays. Lampshades were made of human skin, particularly human skin that had an interesting or beautiful tattoo. Human flesh was made into soap. And gold teeth were pulled from the corpses in the gas chambers.

    More than any other product or commodity of the money-making Nazi Camps, the gold recovered daily from the teeth of the dead, amounting to millions of dollars, illustrates the evil of the Third Reich. In one camp alone an average gold day was 18 pounds. In 1930s dollars that is $10,000.00 per day; in today’s value, for this one camp, that is over $300,000.00 per day.

    Then consider the various nicknames given to the Nazi women – The Beast, The Bitch, Bloody, The Witch, Butcher, The Hyena – and wonder if these Nazi women were better – in a variety of senses of “better”- than today’s women of Planned Parenthood. The Nazis, although they killed over 11,000,000 persons, cannot hold a candle to the tens of millions dead here and around the world which can be laid at the feet of the women of Planned Parenthood.

    And if in reading about any of these Nazi women you stop and have a startled intake of breath at the sheer inhumanity of their actions, just review Planned Parenthood abortion techniques and organ harvesting procedures, and then go back and listen again to the recording of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s very own Dr. Mengele; watch the video of Planned Parenthood Medical Director Mary Gatter discussing the “less crunchy” techniques and her need for a new Lamborghini; check out the medical and scientific facts of the pain capability of children in their mothers’ wombs; and you will realize that these Nazi women were rank amateurs in pain, sadism, torture, and death compared to the women of Planned Parenthood.

    When you learn that on an average day Auschwitz personnel removed about 18 pounds of gold from the teeth of gassed Jews, you will realize that cleansing the population of Margaret Sanger’s “human undergrowth” was one thing, and making money off the dead was another; that “follow the money” explains the alleged lofty humanitarian goals of Planned Parenthood in not crushing an unborn child’s heart and liver; and that the women of Planned Parenthood, today’s Bloody Beasts of Planned Parenthood, take death dealing, genocide and crimes against humanity to a whole new level of consummate evil.

  • father of 7 / kyle- i’d suggest rethinking your exchange- if no democrat- i’d submit there would be a much smaller chance of legal abortion funded by my tax dollars nationally or in NY State – note the constituencies these Democrat miscreants represent- the ” BLUE” coast[s] , large cities, lots of under educated, underachieving folks on lots of public dole stuff as a rule – They have found their way to the national treasury and we producers are lost.

    No Catholic can be so in truth and a Democrat at the same time. No man can serve 2 masters .
    the democrat party is a criminal , immoral organization. You cannot serve God AND mamon . so says the Master Matt: 6- 24

  • These unborn are our constitutional posterity. These are our people. Our representatives must understand that they must represent all people, our ancestors, us and our constitutional posterity, all future generations. “We, the people…” need to speak in truth and Justice. Margaret Sanger, I am her constitutional posterity, at least called me a “human weed”. These monsters will not allow me to be murdered as a human being. How does one deal with a denial of the human soul? We want the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our (constitutional) posterity”…We want God. and Blessings of Liberty on the Little Sisters of the Poor in their quest for freedom and the Blessings of Liberty
