  “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 yet 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, a grand 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.

Shelley’s back and beautiful:


  I’m planning to mail this to quite a few people, including some I haven’t written to or heard from in a long time. I don’t even remember who some of you are!  Forgive me.  Since they limited our number of correspondents, I found out we can juggle names in the computer, which is what I plan to do for this.

  When I was at the FCI in Dublin, CA, and needed eye surgery, the doctor there said there was no such thing as a glaucoma specialist.  People contacted the BOP /Regional Office and Central Office in Washington, DC, and a glaucoma specialist was found and I got the necessary surgery.  I won’t ask anyone to contact the regional and central offices; after all we have a grievance process, futile though it is.  I’ll give you the contact information in case you ever want to use it:


Federal Bureau of Prisons Central Office

320 First Str. NW

Washington DC 20534


BOIP North Central Regional Office

400 State Ave.

Tower II, Suite 808

Kansas City, KS 66101


  Mostly everything is going well for me.  FCI Waseca has been treating me unfairly with regards to my mail, though. When I was at the FCI in Carswell, TX, I did a grievance because they were refusing to give me my prolife mail.  I won it and was then given all of my mail.  At Dublin for over five years I continued to get my prolife mail, and here in Waseca for about the first two years.  Then suddenly I couldn’t have any pictures that show aborted babies.  I took that through the grievance process assuming I would win again, though I shouldn’t have needed to do it again.  However, the wicked at this regional office rubber stamped the mistreatment, as they do with others.  At first they said the photos were a “security risk,” and now they claim it’s because the photos are related to my “crime.”  Others get photos of co-defendants and such, and magazines such as Rolling Stone, even if they have drug crimes.

  I’ve never heard of anyone else with a similar mail problem.  I am being treated differently than the other inmates, and I don’t thank them for making me feel special because it is NOT RIGHT.  Now they have gone even further and won’t let me have newsletters or anything that approves of the use of force to really stop the murders.  I can still get hunting and fishing magazines (so far) that advocate the use of force to kill meat with, and I got a Bonheoffer book that advocates the use of force to stop another serial murder, Adolph Hitler.  What will they do to me next?

  Other than that things are well.  This prison has a great track, and we even have snowshoes, which I love to use.  The food is a lot better than Dublin’s.  There aren’t as many jobs, and the classes aren’t as good, though we do have a College Office Administration program that I'm trying to get into.  For now I teach grammar and math classes for my job.  It’s easy hours usually but always subject to change.  I feel healthy and greatly blessed in the Lord.  May he bless you too.

  Thank you for your help and prayers..   Love


  I’m assuming Shelley gets this newsletter because I do not approve of the use of force.  Nor do I disapprove.  I just want to hear all sides.  That’s all right, ain’t it, BO?


  Neal comments, with his usual insight, on The March For Life in Columbus, Ohio:


  Mark Harrington says, "Anti-Abortion Marches Are For Babies". Yet the sign that leads the entire march says, "Abortion HURTS Women."

  The picture above demonstrates the fatal double-minded attitude that is the main reason legalized abortion continues today in the USA. In other words, for forty years the Pro-life Movement has been much more about helping the women who commit abortion than about the babies whose lives are destroyed by the decisions made by those women. That decision to treat the plight of born women who murder their babies as more deserving of Christian ministry than the babies who are in imminent danger of being murdered has fortified the world in thinking that unborn babies conceived by God are somehow less valuable, have less claim to being created in the image of God, than people who are born.

  We must correct this fundamental error or Christians will continue to be the bedrock upon which legalized abortion is allowed to stand.
  If abortion is the taking of an innocent life, it is some degree of homicide. But pro-life Christians refuse to treat unborn babies with the love they deserve and that God commands.

  To demonstrate the point I'm trying to make, listen to Alan Keyes who chastised me on national television over a decade ago for not properly showing "love" to the women who were committing abortion:

  As I tried to tell Keyes before it became clear he had no intention of letting me explain myself, if babies are being butchered in legalized abortion, the people who participate in that act of homicide are in fact exactly like murderers we the people have incarcerated in every State in the union when they have been convicted of unjustified homicide.

  Yet still the PRO-LIFE movement and its leaders insist on telling the nation, as the sign above proves, that Abortion HURTS Women.

  Now it is undeniable that abortion hurts women. And I certainly am not suggesting that the women who decide to murder their babies are not to be ministered to. But just as it is undeniable that people who are arrested, prosecuted and punished for homicide are HURT, and just as it is undeniable that those people are valid, necessary focuses for the gospel ministry of Jesus Christ, the pro-life Christian response to the women murdering their babies has been out of order for forty years. Since I worked for years in a prison ministry, I can testify with the authority that experience brings about how God would have us--His ministers--deal with murderers. One thing is certain, I never have heard of a Christian prison ministry that acted like God intended us to minister to murderers--except in the most unlikely speculative scenarios--before they were arrested. Until they had been arrested and were in a place where repentance was a clear necessity, dealing with murderers was a matter for law enforcement officers, not gospel ministers.

  Needless to say, Christian prison ministries do not organize marches involving hundreds of thousands of people in order to tell the world that Murder HURTS Murderers, nor did we build our ministry on the idea that murderers are fit subjects for ministry even before they have been arrested, charged and prosecuted for murder.

  Why? Because the world would think those Christians were utterly batty, crazy as loons: in a word, INSANE.

  Everybody knows murder hurts murderers who get caught. History is replete with evidence that murderers who do not get caught and prosecuted grow bolder as murderers, grow more proficient as murderers, grow, in fact, to be examples of murderous problem solvers who have the capacity to infect the people around them with their particular solution to their problems with other people.

  With this in view, it should be possible to see the real problem created by the pro-life Christian response to legalized abortion.

Pro-life Christians have refused to admit that the women who murder their children in legalized abortion are murderers.

  And why won't Pro-life Christians admit it?

  The short answer is this: the pro-life movement has been dominated for forty years by women. Repeat: Christian women have dominated the logic and rhetoric and strategy and tactics of the pro-life movement for forty years. From the start until today, women dictate what is to be said about legalized abortion because, as I have been told hundreds of times, men don't get pregnant and have to decide what to do with the "problem." So the men who are allowed to present themselves as leaders in the pro-life movement either toe the party line drawn by women, stay on the script written by women, or they are silenced and if they do anything in an attempt to enforce God's Law against murder, they are put into prison by the Christian pro-life women and their neutered boytoys who are allowed to stand in front of the pro-life marches.

  Forty years of the blood of aborted babies cries out against these Christian pro-lifers who have allowed women to find a way to fail to abolish legalized abortion. 

  Can you hear the blood of those babies cry out to God?

  If so, you might need to think about becoming a Eunuch for the Kingdom of Heaven's Sake.
  I don’t understand some of what Tobra says here, but I love it anyway:

Buttercup's Law & Order Criminal Intent 

Folks for those of you who were up in the middle of the night and tuned into law and order criminal intent. 

there was a pleasant little episode about saint slepian dropping 

seem in this version which may differ from court recorded action in the gov a ment vs. JAMES KOPP our handsome hero heroically drops saint slepian in NYC. thereby drawing the attention of our gov a ment folks. 

some other heroes receive attention & one particularly handsome fellow who seems to resembles NEAL HORSLEY. 

our gov a ment folks kidnap & incarcerate our hero in the end and try to make themselves the heroes by saving our hero from his suicidal plunge. fortunately anyone smart enough to read this email recognizes the hypocrisy of that. 

this episode will now be discussed by our panel of experts. 

Frank: i was teaching a Bible class in room 499 of the Rentem cheap motel my students will offer their expert opinion as well.

i think KOPP & HORSLEY are tougher than those actors. 

Bible student amber: wow wow like wow that guy shot my abortion doctor that is so cool. 

Bible student tiffani: i kinda passed out along about the part mr gifford is saying the taking of concubines not leading to abortion shooters 

Bible student mimi: we madam gifford is how you say extra charge? 

Kahtielee; folks i want to thank mr gifford and his Bible students for their critique of this exciting episode.

May 26, 1988 James C. Kopp Interview, Part 1 

Editor’s note: About 10 years prior to James Kopp performing a post natal termination procedure of an abortionist in 1998, I had a chance to sit down with him for about an hour and a half for an interview. I recently, found the cassette tape of that interview while rummaging through my old cassettes a few weeks ago. After I listened to the tape, I was reminded of the deep wisdom and insight that James shared. I was so amazed at what he said, I decided to transcribe the interview and share it with you. This interview is quite long, so I will present it in several parts. Here is part 1.

MJ: There are a lot of things I don’t know about you just form a personal perspective. Could you tell us about who you are and where you are from and some basic background information before we start talking about rescue missions (sit-ins at abortion mills)?

JK: I was born in Pasadena, CA in 1954. I come from a family of five and I have one sister in heaven, and I guess part of my background includes the fact that my own immediate family has three single mothers. So to me, pro-life is very personal and the cost that mothers have to pay is something that I as a male could understand. I went to school in California, and I studied Darwinistic Biology as an under graduate many years ago, and was saved overseas in Francis Schaffer’s ministry and at the same time, through over Darwinism. But, I decided to finish up grad school even though by that time I started to think about pro-life and so I finished my Masters which was in embryology and fertilization. That started to get me into pro-life.

MJ: What year was this?

JK: I finished my Masters in I think about ’82. One of the reasons I got into pro-life was that… At one point during the Masters, I thought I might be interested in med school, so I became a pre-med, and I had some clinical experience. And, one day I was standing in the morgue of the Stanford Hospital and I assisted and observed autopsies there because I was in the pathology department and did my little bit of research at night. They brought in a baby that was 8 months from conception that had been aborted, for having Down’s syndrome. The Pathologist was particularly pleased to show me this baby because she knew that I was pro-life. She knew that I was in the morgue and she sent the baby in and she said, “You see enough of this kind of garbage and you really start to believe in abortion.” Those were the words she said to me, and I don’t think I will ever forget it. Up until then, I had some pro-life involvement intellectually, but it wasn’t until I saw that baby right in front of me, which was an absolutely beautiful baby that had been killed because it had Down’s syndrome. And, I heard those words and they just chilled me through my bones, “You see enough of this kind of garbage and you really start to believe in abortion.” Oh, and she also said, ”You pro-lifers really make me sick.” I was so stunned that I could not think of much to say but what happened is that I made a promise to God in my heart that I would try and do more. Up until then I had done political work in pro-life and my family has been involved in California politics for decades.

MJ: What year was this when you saw the aborted baby?

JK: That was 1982 also. The first rescue I did was in ’83 or ’84 and the first Crisis Pregnancy Center (CPC) that I opened was in ’84. So, it was after then I got on the pathway of CPCs and rescues.

MJ: You said you had your conversion overseas. Was this in Switzerland?

JK: Yes.

MJ: What was the name of the town?

JK: The name of the town was Huémoz-sur-Ollon. But the name of the ministry was L’Abri.

MJ: How many rescues have you done to date?

JK: I really don’t know the exact number, but it is somewhere between 15 to 20 I think. In terms of really big national type rescues with 100 or more people maybe 4 or 5 of those. And probably half a dozen lock-in rescues… maybe more.

MJ: Do you know how many arrests you’ve had?

JK: Well, let’s see... That’s right, some of the rescues did not involve arrests, so I have probably been arrested about 15 times. Not a lot.

MJ: Not a lot? (laughing) One of the things about you that is going against the grain of society is that a lot of people are soft and we have a lot of conveniences. And here, we have someone like you who has literally sold out everything for pro-life. I understand that you even took a vow of poverty at one time.

JK: (laughing) I don’t know about a vow.

MJ: That’s what John Witte told me.

JK: Well the hardest part was when I sold my trumpet. I used to be in the union and I put myself through college, or shall I say the Lord put me through college being in the union. And the hardest thing was when I sold my trumpet, which was an extremely good trumpet. That was how I made my living which was the culmination of my career as a professional musician. So that part hurt me, but ever since then it’s been downhill. I mean, in the sense that, once you…. I mean everyone has a trumpet if you know what I mean. Everyone’s got that one thing. You know, they will give up everything else, you know what I mean? And that trumpet meant probably more to me than anything else in terms of material things. I have already been moving in the direction of what I called, being judgment proof. You know, having no assets so that if N.O.W. (National Organization for Women) sues me, I would have nothing to fear. Which is the place I want to be in. So, I had been moving in that direction for a long time.

MJ: I could just see N.O.W. going after that trumpet. “We got to get Kopp’s trumpet!”
JK: (Laughing)

MJ: We read about Samuel Rutherford, Dietrich Bonheoffer, Corrie Ten Boom, then we look at people in our day and age… and I ask where are our heroes? And we have Joan Andrews and a handful of others. But our generation desperately needs some heroes that will sell everything out and just be radical. In our day and age this concept is very foreign and I just feel that we have a lot of soft Christians now days.

JK: Yeah, I think I see where you are going, and I definitely agree. In fact, any time the Lord has asked me to make a sacrifice… and of course, I cannot make a sacrifice in my own strength. If I were to form the resolution that I should sell my trumpet, that would be no big deal. That doesn’t mean anything if it is in the flesh. But, if you were to pray about it and you are sure that is what the Lord wants, and if you go to him and say, “okay Lord.” Then you are offering it up to God and He’s doing it. I definitely think that we don’t offer up enough things to the Lord, we are hanging on to too many things. That, I don’t think too many people would argue with you, especially in the United States. In my opinion, part of the core of this whole problem is that there has never been a country in the entire History of the planet that has had such a very large number of people with such an average high level of freedom from war, poverty, disease, coldness, hunger and pretty soon when you get that isolated and that independent, God is just an idea after a while. God is out there working on the fine things like do I feel good. If you go into most churches these days, people are concerned with feeling good. They are not thinking about, am I starving? Or, is that guy starving? Have I heard the Gospel? Or, has that guy heard the Gospel? You can say the same thing about missions. There are very few people in this country who will do missions, same thing with pro-life. So I certainly agree… Oh, I know what I was going to say, I ramble.

MJ: That’s okay.

JK: The other thing I was going to say too is, long ago could have done what I call an arrest cycle. I have done two of them now. Or, one or two, I can’t remember exactly. But anyway, its where I come into a town and keep doing rescues until they give me a hard time. And during the hard time I assess and say to the Lord, “do you want me to continue in this town, or do you want me to go to another one? Okay? That is what I would call and arrest cycle

MJ: Okay.

JK: In St. Louis, (laughing) they rotated me out to another position before I got in jail for a hard time because in St. Louis you can get arrested 100 times and never see the inside of a jail cell for more than 6 or 8 hours, it’s really incredible in St. Louis. But, the reason I have not done perpetual arrest cycles, in other words, keep going until you get arrested more and more, is that I sense that the Lord has asked me along the way to stop and take the time to open up Pearson Centers. Or, Crisis Pregnancy Centers. If my whole goal in life, and this is not my whole goal, but if my entire 100% goal in life was to save as many babies as I could, that I physically could myself, I would do nothing but open Crisis Pregnancy Centers. I think there is more at stake than just, how many babies can Jim Kopp save. There is a slightly bigger picture, not much bigger. But anyone who sets themselves a goal, I want to save as many babies as I can. That’s not a bad goal, and I certainly would certainly never fault that, but I think there is a little bit more to it. Something that the Lord has been showing lately is that there is more involved than babies. In China for example, if you go and do a rescue in mainland China, you will be in jail for 25 years, and you will be a martyr and the Lord would certainly honor all your prayers, who knows on a mystical level?

JK: (cont’d) But practically speaking, you can’t do anything in China to really help save the babies until you do something about communism. And you can’t do something about communism without being good Christians in general. You have to have a body working together and part of the body working together is exhortation and a word of knowledge and all these things that are… You see what I mean? There is slightly more to the picture than physically, just how many babies can Jim Kopp save with the hours that I’ve got left in my life. That’s why I take the time out, or I dare say the Lord has asked me to take the time out in Delaware and maybe in Texas, California, New Jersey, New York state or wherever he sends me, to leave a trail of these CPCs and they become focal points for pro-life work. And they become stepping stones for people who want to step up into rescues. Most people can’t take that step straight from political work to rescues. They just can’t do it, they need a stepping stone in the middle. A place where they can meet the girls, get a hands on view of how terrible it is out there, how badly these women are being lied to, and pushed around by their boyfriends, and pushed around by the abortionists…

MJ: Isn’t that the truth. All in the name of pro-choice.

JK: Exactly! Get a real solid picture. Demythologize the pro-choice deal, and then they start to get mad. It’s like when I saw that baby in the Stanford morgue, I got mad. If you come to me after that and start talking about trumpets, I would say… Hey! forget trumpets! We are on another level. You know? And I’ll tell you something, most national leaders that I know, that I have had the privileged of meeting… it’s a funny thing, but they have had a similar kind of experience. Not the exact same experience, but something like it.

  Next issue, Part 2

  I just finished Eric Rudolph’s latest, Between the Lines of Drift.  This contributes to the love part of my love/hate relationship with my country because you have to love a country so reluctant to employ the death penalty that it’s enabled Eric to write Racism, Super Max, Feminism, Crime and Punishment, The Sentence – A Satire, Explanation for Bombing the Abortion Mill, Lick the Floor, Lil, Allocation-Birmingham Court, Pacifism, Pyrrhic Victories, Settlement at Trial in Atlanta Court, Abortion -- the Irrepressible Conflict, First Edition 2009, and this, the fifteenth, Between the Lines.

  And this is the best survival story I’ve ever read, yes, better even than Robinson Crusoe.

  The “drift” of the title refers to places where people are, like paths, parks, roads, etc.  It’s a term Eric learned in the Airborne School of the US Army where he also learned some of the skills enabling him to survive for more than five years in nearly impossible conditions, mostly by living between the lines of drift.

  The legal murder of young people is a main topic of Drift.  Here’s an excerpt: 

  . . . . when Paul Hill shot abortionist Dr. Britton in Pensacola, Florida. I remember having a conversation with one of my old neighbors shortly after the shooting.  I'd known this guy for years.  A self-described "pro-life Christian," he tried to explain to me that Paul Hill was just as bad as Dr. Britton; that the cold-blooded killer of thousands of innocent babies was the same as the man who had finally stopped him.  "How can you stop killing by killing?" he asked, as if he were saying something truly profound.

  I was curious about his strange reasoning, given the fact Christian ethics clearly allows for self-defense, and the defense of others, and Just War.

  "Haven't you said to me on occasion that 'abortion is murder,' that 'killing a person the womb is the same as killing her outside the womb’?" I asked.

  "Yes," he said.

  "So, if you knew that your neighbor was murdering babies in his basement every day, wouldn't you feel obligated to stop him.  And if you ended up killing him, do you really believe that your actions were the same as his? How were Paul Hill's actions any different?  If, as you claim, 'abortion is murder,' then Dr. Britton was a mass murderer, and Paul Hill was a hero for stopping him."

  "Oh, but... but what Paul Hill did was take the law into his own hands," he said.

  "In other words murder is okay -- as long it has the sanctions of the law?"

  "Well, like it or not, abortion is legal in America," he said. "And good Christians must obey the laws, even the ones we don't like."

  "You mean like King George's laws, right? Don't you remember that our ancestors rebelled against the unjust laws of Britain because they were being taxed without being properly represented in Parliament. Was their act of rebellion justified?  If so, do you mean to tell me that 'taxation without representation' is a more weighty cause than the systematic murder of over one million babies every year?"

  "But you're talking anarchy," he said. "If everyone acted like Paul Hill there would be chaos."

  "On the contrary, if everyone acted like Paul Hill then law order would be restored in this country. I can think of no greater state of anarchy than the one we live in today, where any pregnant woman can walk into an abortion mill and have her own baby killed for a nominal fee.  There is no ‘law and order’ in this country.

  He fumbled for words as he tried to rehash his hollow arguments, but I cut him short. 

  "If, as you claim,  'abortion is murder,' then by standards of Christian morality, Paul Hill was justified, and those who condemn him are cowards."

He got this smug look on his face, a look I'd seen thousand times before, and hissed: "What you need is the k Jesus."

  "What you need is a pair of testicles," I shot back.


  I never spoke to him again, but our little conversation reminded me of an essay I read called "Christians and Abortion” by Richard Shoenig. Written by a pro-abortion ideologue, the essay was one of the best things I'd ever read on the issue.  Acknowledging that the pro-life movement is dominated by conservative Christians, Shoenig laid out the argument that if pro-lifers really believed that abortion was murder, then they certainly would support all means to stop it, including force. He explored the Bible and the various writings of Catholic and Protestant theologians, showing that Christian ethics clearly justifies the use of force to protect innocent life, regardless of what the statutory law may have to say on the subject.

  When it comes to protecting life, the law of God and Nature takes precedent to positive law of the state. Laws permitting infanticide and abortion are therefore illegitimate. A government that sanctions such practices is illegimate, and no Christian is bound to obey the laws of such a government. 

  And yet, as Shoenig pointed out, so-called pro-life Christians are the first to condemn anyone who shoots an abortionist or who torches an abortion mill. To Shoenig, and any intelligent observer, this indicates that these "pro-life Christians” are either hypocrites or cowards. They either don't believe abortion is murder, or they lack the courage to do anything about it.


  However, it is not only we hypocrites and cowards who argue against the pro-life use of force.  Two of my favorite people, Fr. Aram Berard SJ and Fr. Paul Rothermel, have tried to get me to agree with their opposition to it.  Fr. Berard even wrote an essay against it in “Pro-Life Berks” when I edited that newsletter.

  But folks, for every ten pro-force writings, I get one anti.  I don’t care if you’re heroes, hypocrites, cowards, or Quakers – if you oppose the pro-life use of force, let us hear why.  Don’t surrender the podium to the pro-force people no matter how persuasive they are.

 To send money to the federal Prisoners, those with eight digits after their names, make out a postal money order to the Prisoner’s name and number. Then send it to Des Moines, Iowa 50947-0001. 

  Ask the non-feds how they may receive money – check, money order, etc. It varies by state.

  Receipt of this excellent missive notwithstanding, if you wish to be excluded from such blessings in the future, simply advise me.
