"Contraception" is Murder, 10-3, July, 2012

  “Contraception”  is Murder, a weak, pathetic response to baby murder, is sent out at least once a month.  If the gestapo hasn’t jailed you for defending the innocent realistically, you either have to tell me you want it or go to the website.  Emails are free but snail-mail is free only for PFCs, $800 for others.

  Because I believe we should examine every legitimate means, including force, in our attempt to protect those being tortured to death, I want to hear from people who’ve been forceful and from those who defend them.  I’d also like to hear from those who oppose the prolife use of force and call it violence

  I asked Rev. Michael Bray for permission to post his review, “Dear Christian,” of a new movie, “For Greater Glory”: 

  Certainly.  And I enjoyed your meditations, incidentally, on you new name - "Contraception is Murder."
  I think your points are excellent. As contraceptors have moved from timing of intercourse and prophylactics to chemical abortifacients the line between avoiding children (not as definitive as overtly terminating them) and destroying children has been confused. However, I know a case can be made concerning the attitude behind "avoiding" (it may or may not be a murderous one) children. And I think it important to maintain acknowledgement of such a line.

Dear Christian (therefore, Anti-abortionist)

  For Greater Glory – starring Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria and Peter O'Toole – is the true story of how the Roman Catholic Church, through a three–year conflict called the Cristero War, won its freedom from the government of Mexico. I am not a Romanist. But this fight was clearly one that needed fighting and I am glad the story is being told today on the big screen for an America in need of its own Cristero War in the wake of a rising assertion of Cristo Rey. Christ IS King and he rules the nation. We are not a nation OVER God, but a nation Under God. And that God has an identity: the Triune God revealed in the Scriptures.
  Carl Anderson in National Review writes, "In 1924 the Mexican government moved to suppress that faith. With the election of Plutarco Elias Calles as president, it began to enforce anti-Catholic provisions of the 1917 constitution that had mostly been in abeyance until then. One of the government’s first assaults on religious liberty was its attempt to control who could serve as clergy. Foreign priests were expelled ­ or killed. Clergy were required to register with the government, which reserved the right to determine who counted as a priest.
  "Next came the move to ban religion from public view. Citizens were told they could worship freely, but privately. Priests who wore clerical attire outside their churches or rectories faced large fines. A priest who criticized the government could be jailed for five years, and priests were arrested or killed just for serving their flocks."
  The Cristero fighters took up arms in 1926 when the Mexican government outlawed and forcibly suppressed the Christian faith (Roman Catholic in particular as the dominant version). Suppression included the public execution of priests and parishioners by hanging and firing squad.

  Every weekday morning for several months I’ve been holding this sign outside my neighborhood Planned Parenthood:  


  This morning I got an answer. 

  A young fellow heading towards the middle school on the next block stopped and said, “Easy, four ropes, two cars, bloomp.”

 I don’t want to turn this into a Catholic blog because some of my heroes are not Catholic.  But I’m discovering more writings of the great Jim Mitchell, so here goes: 

  Before I became Catholic, I thought I could be as smart as God just by reading the Bible. I think it's a common error among "Bible-only" Christians. I had a mystical conversion, like what the Protestants call a "Born-again Experience," (which I thought, up until then, was just a bunch of hooey), when I first began to encounter the Eucharist.
  I was staying with friends, renting a room in their house, and I had a very disturbing dream of a man on a cross. He looked at me and said, "It is time." I immediately jumped out of bed, got dressed in my best clothes, and told my landlord and landlady that I needed to go to Mass today with them. It was Easter Sunday.
  I had NO prior understanding of the belief that Catholics hold of the True Presence. When the priest elevated the Host, I remembered the words of the Man on the Cross, and tears began to pour from my eyes. I started going to Mass every week, and the same thing would happen every week.
  Being a Pagan, I had to find a context for what was happening. So I went into nature, praying and fasting when I could, for a vision. I found a "prayer area" in the Cohutta Wilderness in N. Georgia, where I would seek answers. The earth "spoke" to me in dreams and images and symbols, mostly of the interconnectedness of things, but also of the way God speaks through nature, if one willingly opens the heart to "see Truth."
  During one such three day fast in the wilderness, nothing "spoke" to me; it was as if nature had nothing to say to my heart. It was very difficult for me to accept this "silence." Then, as I was returning the prayer area back to its original condition ("Leave no Trace") , an unbidden thought came rushing to my heart. The words, "Think good thoughts" were "spoken into" my heart.
  Yes ! This would be my "quest;" to find GOOD, to think GOOD, to LOVE GOOD !
  I had been, up until this time, a person with a "melancholic" nature. I understand this is one of the few basic personality types. Abraham Lincoln was a melancholic. My nature began to change over the next few weeks. I became a cheerful, positive person; for some reason, "thinking good thoughts" was all I could think about, and it made me happy just to "think good thoughts." This was NOT a Pollyanna type mind-set; I wasn't losing touch with reality; my mind was just learning to "accept" good things that I had resisted before.
  Then one day, my landlady, named Carmella, asked me if I could give her a ride to "adoration" because she was a coordinator for "perpetual adoration" and one of her "guardians" was sick and couldn't be there for her "holy hour." I laughed and said, "Mel, you'll have to translate that into English for me." When she did, telling me she had to pray for an hour at Christ the King Cathedral, I said, of course I would, as long as I can pray also. I have to be honest; I was thinking, "I'll show these Catholics how a Pagan prays !"
  Long story short: I became a "Catholic by desire" after that hour. I maybe will share completely someday what happened. I'm really not sure that the words have yet been invented to describe it. It was like a "life reading," in a way. It was an "introduction to my Savior" by the Blessed Lady who stood by His Cross. I was told, "This is the Tree of Life."
  This past week, Carmella passed away, after a brief battle with what we believe was cancer. She wanted to join her lifelong best friend and husband, and my best friend, Ken, who passed away last Oct  2nd. It is in her loving memory that I felt compelled to write this.

  Think good thoughts.

  My good friend Cal from Hawaii sends in this unique “Stay of Execution” application: 


  TO THE HONORABLE SONIA SOTOMAYOR, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States and Circuit Justice for the Tenth Judicial Circuit: 

  Scott P. Roeder, petitioner pro se, respectfully applies to this Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §§ 1651 and 2101(f) for a stay of preborn children's lethal executions, scheduled daily. The petitioner has filed a petition for a writ of certiorari in this Court which presents the following question: "Whether having an abortion is a constitutional right per se under any reasonable interpretation?" This question being fairly before this Court, the proper legal procedure is to stay the execution of preborn children pending review. The Court is requested to appoint counsel to aid in the prosecution of this application, including counsel ad litem for the preborn. 

  The Circuit Justice may find it appropriate to balance the equities, by exploring the relative harms to the applicant and respondent, as well as the interests of the public at large, including the preborn; the relief sought cannot be obtained from courts below. 

  In Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), the Court refused to promise that abortion, once legalized, would be incapable of interruption in the course of judicial affairs. On the contrary, ever-mindful that the suggestion of the personhood of preborn children has been left open to further consideration, the Court has forewarned, 410 U.S. 156-157, "If this suggestion of personhood is established…the fetus' right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the [Fourteenth] Amendment." The relief sought in this application cannot be obtained from courts below because Roe has restricted a determination of this consideration to this Court.

Rev. Michael Bray: 

  This comes, courtesy of Dr. Terence Hughes, and is his short charge at a StandUpForFreedom Rally held 6/10/2012. He makes his stand clear, and each of us will have the opportunity to make our stand clear in November. Dr. Hughes statement is quite brief and does not over-tax even those with the shortest attention span.
The Great Commandment
  “A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and fell among thieves…” Thus did Jesus Christ begin His parable of the Good Samaritan. A lawyer had asked Him, “What must I do to possess eternal life?” Jesus replied, “What is written in the Law?” The lawyer recited The Great Commandment: to love the Lord thy God with our whole heart, soul, strength, and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. Then the lawyer asked, “And who is my neighbor?” Jesus told the lawyer, after a priest and Levite saw the man and moved on, a Samaritan rescued the man, anointed his wounds, and took him to an inn to recover, paying the innkeeper. Jesus asked the lawyer, “Who was the man’s neighbor?” The lawyer replied, “He who showed mercy.” Jesus said, “Go and do likewise.”
  Christians since Jesus’ time have obeyed this part of The Great Commandment by operating hospitals, schools, and charitable centers open to all at modest or no cost. This work has been central to the great churches of Christendom. In this year of Our Lord, 2012, it has come under attack by our own Federal Government in the form of a Health and Human Services mandate that requires any church or Christian engaged in these activities to first fund, directly or indirectly, a mandate designed to keep the next generation of Americans from being born. The mandate provides drugs to render a woman unable to conceive a child, drugs to kill a child already conceived, and surgery that makes her unable to ever bear a child. Failure to comply is punished by heavy fines that crush Christian outreach activities and by cruel prison sentences imposed on Christians who conduct them.
  In speaking of The Last Judgment, Jesus told His disciples acts of kindness done to the least of His brethren were kindnesses done to Him, and refusing these kindnesses was refusing being kind to Him. Upon this, through faith and love in Jesus Christ, our salvation would depend. Who is the least of our brethren today, if not our children waiting to be born who have been targeted for murder by the millions by our own Federal Government, over 55 million of them, with over a million added every year for nearly 40 years? Now our Government wants us to further abandon these helpless neighbors by agreeing to prevent still more babies from being born before we can obey The Great Commandment. Our Government wants to confine our Christian witness to inside the walls of our own churches and confine our charitable activities to our own people. The State demands our 30 pieces of silver to prevent babies from being born, to betray Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
  This is diabolical evil. We are gathered here to resist this evil, every one of us, from the small children to an old man dying of pancreatic cancer.

Do you understand?

Do you understand?

Do you understand?

Do you understand?

Then let us go forth, stand fast, and dread naught.
  We have become a complacent lazy people. It is very sad, we love pleasure more than God. There are a few who have not given into sin, but the numbers are ever so shrinking. Television is satan’s favorite tool. he steps right into your living room; in fact people look forward to his brainwashing and deception. The media constantly promotes liberal godless views which are bent on destroying us. Just look at how vile and disgusting prime time television is now. It is promoting every vile thing. Homosexuality is mainstream entertainment now. Almost every sitcom has a gay couple in it and it is constantly tearing down the family structure as God set it forth. Kids do not have a mom to come home to anymore, Mom is out working either because of divorce or she is more career minded than family oriented. The media and hollywood have played a big role in making this happen. Pray for this nation, if not we are certainly doomed. God always saves a remnant. I am not even going to go into the killing of 4,000 unborn babies in The U.S. alone. To kill the most innocent of all creation without even a second thought, and then take parts of the dead baby and use it for sweetener in diet cola! That is no lie. Pepsi and senamyx are working together to use liver enzymes from aborted fetuses as flavor enhancers for diet pepsi. Look it up, It is very true. There is much more evil than appears on the surface. I boycotted pepsi years ago when I found out they give 1.5 million dollars to gay pride week in New York every year. These things are just a small example of the evil and corruption that is going on.        Robert Price

  Back in April, India’s Supreme Court heard a case about a surgeon in the state of Bihar. This surgeon performed 53 operations in about two hours in conditions that can only be described as appalling: “assisted by unqualified staff, with no access to running water or equipment to clean the operating equipment.”
  The “patients” were left “crying out in pain [and though] they were in desperate need of medical care, no one came to assist them.”
  But what’s most appalling is that butchers like him are acting at the behest and with the support of the West.
  The operations were sterilizations and, as the U.K.’s Observer has reported, they were paid for, in part, with British aid money.
  State and local officials in India used the approximately 250 million dollars to target poor women. Actually, “target” is too benign a term: Poor women were bribed, berated, and threatened if they didn’t undergo sterilization. Then, to add injury to insult, the sterilizations were often performed “with reckless disregard for the lives of poor women.”
  The UK’s Department of International Development cited the need to combat climate change as justification for its support of programs like the Indian one. I’m not making this up, folks. It, like other western agencies, sees population control as a key to reducing greenhouses gases.
  Needless to say the “population” they are seeking to “control” doesn’t reside in London’s tony Belgravia district. They are the poor living in what used to be called the “Third World.”
  It’s important to understand the worldview that makes these outrages possible. It’s not a mere concern for the environment, although it is disguised as such.
  It is the product of an anti-human ideology. This ideology is the subject of “Merchants of Despair,” a book by Robert Zubrin. What Zubrin calls “antihumanism” sees “the human race [as] a horde of vermin whose unconstrained aspirations and appetites endanger the natural order.” Given the threat posed by humanity, “tyrannical measures are necessary to constrain humanity.”
  Now, this may sound like rhetorical overkill, but that’s because most of those advocating and imposing “tyrannical measures” are too discrete to actually call people “vermin.”
  Most, but not all. A few years ago, James Lovelock, the originator of the “Gaia” hypothesis, told New Scientist that, since humanity was already too numerous and too stupid, Gaia herself would have to “cull the herd.”
  Many who sincerely object to Lovelock’s rhetoric still share his anti-human worldview: They agree with his ends — that is a lot fewer people — and the need to take decisive measures. In the end, their squeamishness counts for little, especially to the women in Bihar and others like them.
  Again, I’m not being harsh: Abuses like these are well-documented. The UN’s Family Planning Agency is a serial offender, which prompted the Bush administration to cut off its funding. The outcry was predictable, as was the restoration of funding in 2009.
  The unwillingness to challenge the whole “too many people are the problem” idea makes what happened in India and countless other places inevitable. The worldview and the incentives all point in this direction: The scope of the abuse is only limited by our ruthlessness.  In other words, it’s not limited at all.

          Eric Mataxas (

   On the third and fourth Sundays of the month,  I visit the homes of the baby killers.  I just  emailed this report to Pat Richards at the blog: 

  This has little to do with your post today, Pat, but I have to tell you what happened this morning.  I was holding my A KILLER LIVES HERE sign in front of baby killer John Roizin’s house in Easton when several cars stopped in a line. The lady passenger in the first car started in, “He’s not a killer. He saved my daughter’s life.” She continued for about ten minutes (somewhere in there she told me she and her driver were teachers at Lafayette, the near-by college).  I never interrupt because then it turns into an argument.  I just wait.

  Finally they run out of steam or maybe get curious,    “So what would you do if your daughter was raped by a big black man. Would you take care of the situation or would you let the child live?”  

  “I’d let the child live,” I said, and they drove off.

  I thought I’d heard the last of that particularly vile racist pro-death argument, around 1978.  But it came back. They all come back.

  What really startled me, though, was, “Would you take care of the situation or would you let the child live?”  The euphemism of the first clause turns into naked reality in the second.  It had to be a slip of the tongue and maybe that’s why they took off.  Pro-deathers simply do not talk that way. 

  When I left Johnny’s house and got to Jen’s, I saw drawings of a skunk and a raccoon on a sign owned by the Lehigh Valley Wildlife Removal Company. I guess Jen had a little problem because you call LVWRC when, as the sign states, you want the “Humane Removal of Nuisance Wildlife.” 

  Oh, the irony! Jennifer Boulanger, owner and operator of the largest baby-killing mill between New York City and Harrisburg, Pa., will do for skunks what she won’t do for people -- she pays someone to get rid of non-human animals humanely, and she pays someone else to get rid of human animals violently, horribly.

  The perceptive Al comments: 

  All these agents, judges, whoever, who have sided with the murderers of innocent children and the murder and persecution of their defenders have committed themselves to the rule of man.

  If the rule of law is ever reestablished in this country they all will be in danger of prison - for the minor players - and the noose/electric chair/needle (whatever the popular mode of execution at the time). Do they realize this? I would guess that most do not.

  But some do, and that makes them all the more determined to ward off the reestablishment of the rule of law.

  I go to the pro-death blog every day because I really do learn more there.  Look here at what anti-lifer Elena Carvin  writes: 

  “Agreed,  Another Extremely POWERFUL Article on that reveals the nature of the mentally challenged curmudgeons of the anti abortion misogynistic seniles in our country.

  Gladly, they are a tiny proportion of clear thinking people.

  They truly achieve nothing by their actions except when they resort to terrorism and murder . . .”

  As usual EC did not think before she wrote that. And  I responded immediately: 

   I’m saving this, EC, changed slightly: “They truly achieve nothing by their actions except when they resort to force, even to the point of termination.” 

  And to think it comes from a pro-deather!   Albeit a semi-literate one, but a pro-deather nevertheless. 

  Of course you know that this newsletter is mostly concerned with the positives and negatives of the use of prolife force, which has been practically nonexistent since Operation Rescue went belly-up twenty years ago.  I should think this off-the-cuff comment by one of our enemies would count heavily in the positive side of the argument. 

  Another anti-lifer makes a more extensive argument.  This appeared on the blog today, June 23, a day after Elena tells us above that we will achieve nothing if we don’t use force.  Kate Ranieri, the writer, teaches at Muhlenberg  College. She usually produces vituperative, nasty stuff.  Occasionally, she scores: 

  I heard something rather intriguing and wonder what the readers think. The statement referred to the anti abortion protesters. “It seems to me that if they truly believed REAL babies were being tortured, they’d do something more than stand around.”
  Something to ponder. If we knew that Jews were being systematically annihilated, we would do something as a country, right?  Well we did because we knew men, women and children (as in born) were being killed. As well, we know that “babies” are not being tortured or murdered. We know that abortion kills a fetus. We also know that a fetus is not a baby or a child or a person or a young person. It’s just a fetus that is not wanted for whatever personal reason a woman may have. No knife going after a baby. No baby trying to get away from some doctor. No screaming. No pain. No thinking. No haunting at night. No child saying “Mommy I want to live. I want to go to the beach.” [sounds like science fiction, eh?]

  It’s so convenient for the angry, bleeding hearts to show up and shout at women. How easy. How they must congratulate themselves at the end of day. How simple-minded they are to talk about Satan’s dominion over this country when it is they who are perpetuating evil toward others. It’s pretty obvious. They don’t really believe that real babies are being tortured. Of course, one could argue about the meaning of the word ‘real’ as it relates to products of conception (POC). Do poc make a woman pregnant? Yes. Do poc make a baby? No. Do products of conception have the potential to become a fetus and eventually a baby, after birth? Yes.

  Arguing about ‘real’ baby is like arguing about the meaning of ‘true’ womanhood. Both terms are subject to multiple interpretations. Some of these anti abortion folks believe true womanhood means women are doormats full of piety, purity, submissiveness, and domesticity.

   But that’s a topic for a fuller treatment.

  Anyway, it’s my sense that these poor anti abortion folks would like for us to believe that they think any product of conception is a real baby.

  If that’s true, and if they believe real babies are being tortured to death, what can be said of their convictions if all they do is stand outside and blather?
  Warned you that it would be nasty and vituperative, didn’t I?  But I think, and I’ll bet most of you disagree, that Kate Ranieri hits the nail on the head.  I again responded immediately: 

  Now you’re getting somewhere, Kate!  I knew if I didn’t chase you away and if I let you talk long  enough, you’d say something worthwhile.  I’m transferring this (errors included) into my July newsletter,  and my take on it will follow. 

  Here’s my take. Kate is absolutely right to imply that baby killing continues to be legal in the USA because we prolifers, too, don’t really believe that in an abortion a baby is murdered.  So why do we usually vote for the more prolife candidate?  Why do we listen with satisfaction to the prolife speaker?  Why do we march for life in Washington?  Why do we go to the mills to try to talk men and women out of carrying someone inside where she will be tortured to death?  Why do we support, even run, centers devoted to helping women with tough pregnancies?  And why do we engage in dozens of other prolife activities? 

  The reasons are varied but they are not just.  Justice requires that we do more.  Justice requires that we sacrifice even our lives to stop this holocaust, to stop some people from pulling apart other pepole. 

   Prolifers watch someone like me – “He’s more involved in this issue than I am.  What’s he doing? Protesting?  Contributing?  Praying?  Oh, I’ll get around to that too, later.”

  And the holocaust continues.
