I am not a Catholic whatsoever and find many faults with the Catholic theology and doctrine. However, despite those differences, I know very well that to be a Catholic still means to be a Christian, and simply professing one’s faith does not mean that one possesses such faith.
That is the sort of faith that Joe Biden and other faux-Christian Democrats have professed for decades and even most recently, as the media has attempted to portray Joe Biden as a “devout Catholic” particularly before the election to try and take away some of the evangelical vote from Trump (even though evangelicals are not Catholic). That any of these killers of the young and old would consider themselves Christian is deeply insulting to anyone who actually is a Christian.
Despite that, they do, indeed, call themselves “Christians” or “Catholics” and have people within the Church backing them up (the devil attends church, after all). Actual Christians, however, recognize the fact that such people are not really Christian and do not stand for anything that is Christian.
Archbishop Jose Gomez, President of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, is one such Christian who sees the evil morals that Biden holds, at least for the most part.
Gomez issued the following statement on Wednesday, saying that “working with [Occupier] Biden will be unique… as he is our first [occupier] in 60 years to profess the Catholic faith.”
“Mr. Biden’s piety and personal story, his moving witness to how his faith has brought him solace in times of darkness and tragedy, his longstanding commitment to the Gospel’s priority for the poor – all of this I find hopeful and inspiring.”
I’m far more certain it wasn’t his “faith” which brought him solace in times of darkness and tragedy, but remembering that he is obscenely wealthy and in a good position as part of the Washington Establishment to make far more money still. This, obviously, is where I wholeheartedly disagree with Gomez, as I find no actual faith within Joe Biden. Certainly, none of his policies and actions are indicative of someone who trusts the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. And commitment to the Gospel’s priority for the poor? The economy is shut down and he wants MORE of that, which will only hurt the vast majority of people and especially those who were already poor.
Saying on the campaign trail that he would help the poor or the working class or whatever is not actually doing any of those things, particularly if his policies will not help the poor but only serve to further enrich himself and his Wall Street buddies.
Biden serves only himself and those who can help him at any capacity. The poor are nothing to him except servants at his feet.
But at any rate, Gomez continued:
“[A]s pastors, the nation’s bishops are given the duty of proclaiming the Gospel in all its truth and power, in season and out of season, even when that teaching is inconvenient or when the Gospel’s truths run contrary to the directions of the wider society and culture. So, I must point out that our new [Occupier] has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity, most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender. Of deep concern is the liberty of the Church and the freedom of believers to live according to their consciences.”
“Our commitments on issues of human sexuality and the family, as with our commitments in every other area – such as abolishing the death penalty or seeking a health care system and economy that truly serves the human person – are guided by Christ’s great commandment to love and to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters, especially the most vulnerable,” Gomez continued.
For the most part, this is good stuff. I disagree on the issue of the death penalty, as the death penalty is reserved for those whom deserve its harsh punishment, namely killers. Genesis 9:5-6 says: “Surely I will require your lifeblood; from every beast I will require it. And from every man, from every man’s brother I will require the life of man. ‘Whoever sheds man’s blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.’” And Exodus 21:12 says: “Whoever strikes a man so that he dies shall be put to death.”
And regarding the health care system and economy, I agree only insofar as the Left has destroyed both and changed it enough to really only benefit the wealthy and not give the little people the ability to compete. Just look at Parler trying to compete with Twitter and getting utterly nuked off of the internet to see what I mean. Not to mention that the Wayfair ruling of 2018 (though a “conservative” majority was responsible for that ruling) is the primary reason as to why we don’t have a store to sell merchandise, as selling things online to people outside of our own state would require more financial and legal muscle than we have.
But with that small tangent out of the way, let’s get back to the overall grievances of actual Catholics against the faux-Christian Democrats like Joe Biden.
“For the nation’s bishops,” Gomez continued, “the continued injustice of abortion remains the ‘preeminent priority.’ Preeminent does not mean ‘only.’ We have deep concerns about many threats to human life and dignity in our society. But as Pope Francis teaches, we cannot stay silent when nearly a million unborn lives are being cast aside in our country year after year through abortion.”
This made a lot of faux-Christians mad, such as the Vatican and the Chicago Cardinal Blaise Cupich, though interestingly, most of their complaints were regarding procedure which seemingly Gomez broke with issuing that statement. That isn’t to say that the Chicago cardinals agree with Gomez, as they were pretty clearly in support of Biden and calling the statement “ill-considered”.
Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki was asked about this, and only said that Biden “attends church regularly” which is a non-answer. Attending church doesn’t mean someone is a Christian.
One of Biden’s first executive orders was about forcing educational institutions which receive government funding (that is to say, most of them) must allow biologically male athletes on the women’s teams and forces girls to share restrooms and locker rooms with boys if the boys wanted to use those facilities.
He has constantly reiterated his commitment to killing as many babies as he can with pro-abortion legislation and has told people he fully intends on lifting the Mexico City policy which bans NGOs which promote and provide abortion internationally, and intends on lifting the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funds from going to domestic abortion providers.
For that one issue alone, he is utterly disqualified from even calling himself a Christian. No Christian would EVER be in support of abortion because abortion is murder, no matter how you dress it up.
So Gomez is entirely correct to note that Biden would advance moral evils. Biden is morally evil himself and there is NO defending him, no matter what one tries to do. The Left views evil as good and good as evil and when in power, demonstrate it at its worst.
I pray that we will one day crush the evils of the Left and make abortion as morally detestable as the Holocaust, seeing as abortion is a holocaust in itself.
“The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.”
A sign of the Left buying into the b.s. that they are selling is that those who advocate for the genocidal practice of abortion no longer feel the need to feign any humility or sadness about the subject. In the past, they pretended as though abortion was a “necessary tragedy”, a “necessary evil” which is not pretty but “had to happen” for the sake of someone, namely the mother.
They used to say they wanted “safe, legal, and rare” abortion to make it appear as though what they advocated was logical and fair, but didn’t push the envelope too much. “Safe”, “legal” and “rare” are what they used to say to make it appear a moderate position, implying that even they did not like the procedure, but felt as though, in the grand scheme of things, it was a necessary evil for one purpose or another.
Nowadays, women are encouraged to “shout” their abortion and celebrate with glee as states and countries make legal the homicidal practice. They celebrate the holocaust that is abortion and believe that most people are with them in this regard.
Why else would misguided (at best) Argentinian women celebrate the legalization of abortion in the first large Latin American country to do so? Why else would Satanic lawmakers and politicians in New York celebrate the legalization of abortion through the third trimester and making it a Constitutional right for women to get an abortion in the state?
What they used to say is that they wanted abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare”. In reality, they just want it to be legal. They couldn’t care less about it being “safe” because murder is never safe. That “safety” is never extended to the babies which are brutally murdered. “Safety” was not their goal. Regulation was.
They didn’t want women to kill their own babies through DIY means. They wanted women to kill their babies at their slaughter houses so that they could get paid for it. They wanted to profit off of it and profit they have.
And “rare”? Why would they want to make rare their most used and profitable service? It serves them well, make plenty off of it, and get to enjoy the sickening thrill of killing another person without having to suffer the consequences or penalties associated with murder.
This is like allowing drug dealers the legal ability to sell their supply in schools. Why wouldn’t they be happy about it? Why would they try to deter it at any capacity?
In a recent interview with the WaPo, Planned Parenthood president Alexis McGill Johnson pushed back on the MSM source’s attempt at downplaying the den of killers’ reputation as being America’s largest abortion provider: “I think when we say, ‘It’s a small part of what we do,’ what we’re doing is stigmatizing it. We are a proud abortion provider… abortion is healthcare.”
So they are not at all ashamed at what they are doing because now, the narrative is that abortion is not even a “necessary evil”, but an outright GOOD AND POSITIVE thing. They have tried to rationalize and justify it, but anyone with a heart recognizes that abortion is anything but a rational, justified, good or positive thing. It’s murder, and even some pro-abortion devils are beginning to be okay with even acknowledging that.
Now, what prompted me to write about this at all is an article from The Federalist, about how “Abortion Supporters Are No Longer Lying About Their Cruelty.”
In that article, the author talks more in-depth about the situation in Argentina, and about how there is a picture (right below) of a 10-year-old girl at a pro-abortion protest stepping on a baby doll:
What girl does this? Now, I can hardly judge the actions of a naïve 10-year-old, seeing as she likely does not know what she is doing here or just how evil this is, but she must have had parents dragging her to this event and teaching her all kinds of horrible things.
Even my own mother, when she was a child in Argentina, was taught by her mother, my grandmother, that babies in the womb were “basically just Jell-O.” The implication, obviously, being that they are not people, just a random clump of cells and tissue, not too different from a cancerous tumor.
But even then, young girls tend to play with dolls like that one in the picture. Maybe not quite as much today, given how technology and tablets have basically taken over for toys for children, but girls her age and younger still usually play with such dolls and show care and some amount of love for them.
Even a news anchor in Argentina, named Viviana Canosa, recognized what it is that young girls tend to do with such toys:
“You know, we didn’t know if we would be mothers or wanted to be mothers, but we used to play with dolls. We put them to bed, we gave them something to eat and cared for them. We role-played mom & dad with our girl friends: ‘Hey can you [take] care of my baby? I’m going off to work!’ That was our childhood. And this photo is disturbing to me. It is the antithesis of what I experienced in the [pro-life] March of Two Lives this weekend.”
Such behavior is not natural – it is taught. Women are supposed to be protectors of their young; care-takers. But you can see the hatred that has been taught to that girl. That is an act of hate. Again, can hardly judge her very harshly for this, seeing as she’s just a dumb little girl, but this is the kind of behavior that, if not corrected, she will carry for the rest of her life. Unless taught and shown otherwise, she will grow up to be hateful of children and delight with glee at the thought of their deaths.
But make no mistake: the pro-abortion crowd was always this cruel and inhumane. They’re just now coming around to admitting it to some extent or another.
The author of that Federalist article concluded his piece by saying: “It’s worth asking how the pro-abortion movement in the United States and abroad has become so inhumanely cruel. The darker truth, however, is that it may simply be shedding its false veneer to reveal the evil that was always there.”
There is no “may” about it. It is. At the end of the day, fundamentally, these people were always advocating for murder. Whether they were cognizant of this or not, and whether or not they admitted it, they were advocating for the termination of life.
It was perhaps a bit more excusable before technology allowed women to see their unborn children through ultrasound, since the major argument for Roe was that unborn children are not alive, but with this invention, there is simply no excuse whatsoever for the continued advocation of infanticide.
The science is settled on this one: babies in the womb are alive. They have their own unique DNA code, separate from that of their parents. They eventually develop heartbeats and brain activity. They grow lungs which they don’t use yet, but will do so once out of the womb. They have everything we would recognize in a human baby. That there is continued advocacy for abortion despite the evidence of human LIFE shows you how inhumane, cruel and evil the advocacy always was.
That they are beginning to drop the “necessary tragedy” and “safe, legal, and rare” aspects of it is not what shows the cruelty of the abortion movement – they are merely symptoms of the overall disease.
They are convinced now that most people are with them with regards to this issue and are beginning to make the foolish decision to out themselves for what they are. Now, I can’t blame them for thinking they have such massive support. Pop culture, regular media and social media make it look as though the Left is massively popular and that their view is the mainstream view. They couldn’t be more wrong, however.
Though they try to make it look good and positive, the truth remains that abortion is murder and murder is still generally seen as a massive taboo which must be punished. These people have to lie to get people on their side, so exposing themselves for what they are and what they stand for is not going to work out in their favor, particularly as the only real reason they would do so is because they have bought into the idea that they are the mainstream view and opinion.
They have banned conservative voices from their platforms and as a result, believe that everyone else who is left agrees with them. A foolish leap in logic, but these aren’t the most logical of people.
But that they even think of exposing themselves for what they are shows you that it was just a ruse that they sought “safe, legal, and rare” abortion or that it was a “necessary tragedy.” They are killers for profit, not too different from hitmen.
Do not let them fool you: They are of their father, the devil.
“For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.”
This is not the first time I have talked about a poll like this, but I felt it necessary, in this crazy age, to remind people that the vast majority of Americans are not the crazy commie radicals that we often see on television, movies, and the media. Most people do not actually agree with the Left on a variety of issues, but they make themselves appear to be the majority via their control of the pillars of power not only in the country but throughout the world (and I’ll get to that in a moment).
Knowing this, it doesn’t come as any surprise to me to see that a majority of Americans (55%) support either implementing restrictions on abortion or outright bans on the murderous practice, according to a recent CBS poll.
The survey of 1,309 Americans, including 454 Democrats, 331 Republicans and 524 Independents, indicated that 43% of surveyors believed abortion should be “generally available”, with 55% saying there ought to be some restrictions or an outright ban on abortion.
Specifically, 31% said that abortion should be “available but under limits,” and 24% said that it “should not be permitted” at all.
By political lines, we find that only 20% of Republicans believe abortion should be “generally available”, while 66% of Democrats and 39% of Independents said the same.
With regard to restrictions, 44% of Republicans believed some restrictions ought to be put into place, with 21% of Democrats and 31% of Independents agreeing on this. An outright ban is viewed positively by 35% of Republicans, 12% of Democrats and 27% of Independents.
Putting them together, that makes 79% of Republicans, 33% of Democrats and 58% of Independents believing that abortion should have some restrictions or be altogether banned.
Like I said earlier, this is not the first time I have talked about a poll like this because this has generally been the overall sentiment of Americans for a number of years. Back in June of 2019, I wrote about a similar poll, conducted by Harvard/Harris, which found that 46% of respondents “said the [Supreme Court] should uphold the ruling in Roe if the issue comes before the judges, while 36% said the Supreme Court should modify the 46-year-old ruling. Eighteen percent wanted the ruling to be overturned altogether.”
Like I pointed out in that particular article, that means that while 46% said the ruling (and therefore abortion law) should not be altered, 54% of surveyors said that it should be altered or done away with altogether. This is pretty close to the findings of the recent CBS poll showing that 43% of respondents said abortion should be “generally available” (aka not altered) and 55% said that it should be restricted or banned.
In other words, general sentiment surrounding abortion has not changed all that much over the past year. Most people believe it should either be restricted (with some ideas including changing Roe to allow for states to dictate whether or not abortion would be legal, as opposed to forcing all states to make it legal) or completely eliminated as a practice because it is abhorrent and legal murder.
A Marist poll from back in January also showed something similar, finding that 62% of Americans said that if the Supreme Court revisits Roe, it should either allow for states to determine what restrictions or outright bans they can put on abortion (46%) or outright make abortion illegal (16%).
Of course, one could look at that 62% and say that sentiment has gone the pro-abortion way in that time frame, but you also have to remember that last year, 54% of respondents to that aforementioned Hill poll said abortion should be restricted or made illegal. So either sentiment goes up and a bit down on it in favor of pro-life, never finding a majority believing abortion should remain the same or made less restrictive, or the polling methods are a bit odd (let’s not forget, the Left loves to oversample Democrats).
Regardless of what could be the reason for such oddities (and a good reason could simply be how the questions are worded, as that tends to affect the outcome of some polls), we still find that the majority of Americans do not favor abortion, or at least do not favor a sort of carte blanche approach to abortion that the Left would love to see. The Left would love nothing more than to see unrestricted abortion, even in the moments after birth, if Governor Coonman’s radio interview where he expressed such thoughts were any indication.
But even with this, you have to ask yourself: why does it still feel like the country is moving in the wrong direction with such things and why does it feel like I am in the minority, even though that’s not the case? Why does it feel like our culture is moving further away from God rather than towards Him, even if polls do not indicate most people agree with such cultural changes?
Which brings me back to what I talked about earlier with that comment about the “pillars of power”. You see, a culture is affected and determined primarily by those at the top. This is true in the case of communities, cities, states, entire countries and even in the realm of sports. A winning culture in a team can allow for it to be more successful (i.e. the Miami Heat, who do not really have a true superstar but have managed a good number of wins throughout the last few seasons), while a losing culture marred in mediocrity-at-best will find trouble being anything substantial (i.e just about any New York sports team, minus the Yankees).
So despite the fact that a majority of Americans do not agree with abortion, the Left definitely does and they are the ones in control of most of the pillars of power.
What are these pillars of power, you might ask? Government (including schools), news media, Hollywood/t.v./streaming, sports (entertainment in general), the corporations (I say this at the risk of sounding like Bernie, but it's true) Church (not joking) and social media.
While Trump is the President and Republicans hold the Senate, Democrats control the House and generally are good at pushing through their socialist b.s. (the Democrats only have as much power as the GOP allows them to have and the spineless GOP allows them to have plenty of it). And let’s not even pretend like all GOP members of Congress are conservatives. You have RINOs like Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, etc. We used to have Jeff Flake and John McCain, as well as Paul Ryan as House Speaker. Despite not holding the presidency (and they eventually will), Leftists run D.C. and much of government. And there is no denying the regular Marxist indoctrination centers that are our public schools.
While Fox News and conservative websites exist (and Fox News is going more and more RINO at the behest of Paul Ryan), over 90% of the news is negative towards Trump. The Left holds a massive majority in the news cycle, which is why we so often call them fake news (apart from the fact that they outright spread fake news).
While there are conservative actors, they are generally far quieter because the Left controls most of Hollywood/the entertainment business. Prominent conservatives like James Woods get blacklisted and essentially cancelled and the ones who have not are either going to be at one point or do the career-smart move of staying quiet, for the most part. For example, I have a sneaking suspicion that Adam Driver, most famous for his role in the recent Star Wars trilogy as the villain Kylo Ren, is a conservative for a few reasons. For one, he laughed a lot when Ricky Gervais brought up how many in Hollywood were friends with Jeffrey Epstein (whereas most people either cringed and groaned or just remained silent). He also joined the Marines after 9/11, something few Leftists would have considered doing, and finally, he leads a mostly quiet and private life (conservatives like to be left alone, for the most part).
Also, if he is a conservative, I don’t blame him for not showing it, as such a thing can bring him persecution and lead to him losing roles and destroy not only his career but also his life (which he has to be careful about, as a husband and father).
But regardless of this, it is no secret that the Left runs Hollywood.
It also generally runs sports, as evident not only by loud voices such as LeBron James (who is loud about politics unless it has to do with China and it threatens his wallet), Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Colin Kaepernick, the NFL itself, the NBA itself, now, ashamedly, NASCAR itself and much of the sports mainstream media.
The major corporations all bend the knee to the mob, whether it be Google firing an engineer for saying that women don't tend to want to be engineers (which is true), or corporations changing their logos to show a gay pride flag, or sending out statements "in support" of the idea that black lives matter, they do all these things because the vast majority of them are run by Leftists and they don't even try to hide it.
The current Pope is a socialist whose only redeeming quality is that he is not pro-abortion and many denominations have attempted to follow and appease Man as opposed to follow and appease God. Even the denomination I belong to, the Presbyterian church, is going Leftist (worth noting there is the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America which is even farther Left than the Roman Catholic Church and the one I belong to, the Presbyterian Church in America, is going a bit more to the Left) with many people in the Presbytery allowing a “same-sex attracted” preacher not only amongst their midst but also selling books trying to indoctrinate people into accepting homosexuality as being normal and not a sin, going contrary to the Bible.
Finally, there is social media and I hardly think I need to explain how that one is Leftist, considering how often they target and ban/censor conservatives and people with “wrongthink”.
Despite the fact that the vast majority of the country is not Leftist, the pillars of power that shape our culture are mostly owned by the Left. This is why it feels like the country is going so far Left and why Democrats can run on unrestricted abortion without much worry. Even if they don’t necessarily win, they are a part of shaping our culture (Stacey Abrams lost embarrassingly but she is still a prominent politician thanks to the media and the pillars of power in general). It’s also why celebrities can attack someone for holding the basic and logical belief that a man cannot get pregnant or get a period. Even if most people disagree, they are the ones in power to shape the culture – cancelling whatever and whomever they disagree with for the sin of disagreeing with them or even not being vocal enough about Leftist causes.
It’s good to see that the majority of the country does not support abortion, or at least unrestricted abortion, but the reason we feel like we are losing is not because we are in the minority, but because the Left controls the pillars of power that affect our culture.
They must be defeated at every level.
1 John 5:4
“For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.”
It is rare for us to see blue-on-blue crime, so to speak, but boy is it a joy when we do. Recently, Michael Moore produced and released a movie attacking the environmentalist movement (without departing from the overall insane ideologies it espouses) as being ineffective in the way it attempts to “fight” climate change.
Without going too much into detail, the movie talks about the inefficiencies of current “green energy” alternatives to fossil fuel as being just as, if not more, environmentally unfriendly as fossil fuels. However, Michael Moore’s ultimate solution isn’t to abandon the ridiculous and actually insane movement or to undo the damages it has caused. Rather, it is to go down the route of eugenics and espousing heavy population control to mitigate the amount of people that can affect the environment.
This, even in the eyes of a wacko environmentalist, is asinine. Not only is it asinine, but racist, according to George Monbiot, who wrote an entire Twitter thread to explain his reasoning (and he also wrote about the movie in a UK Guardian article, which I will cover in a moment).
The Twitter thread is quite lengthy so bear with me.
“Prompted by the shocking falsehoods in Planet of the Humans, this thread asks why so many people in rich nations claim that the biggest environmental problem is population growth. The conclusion will enrage some people, but I think it’s unavoidable. Let’s take this step by step,” began Monbiot.
“There’s no question that population growth exerts environmental pressure. It’s one of many issues about which we should be concerned. But the global impact is much smaller than a lot of people imagine.”
“Undoubtedly, rising human numbers can have important local effects: pressure on housing, green space, wildlife, water quality etc. And it’s essential that all women have full reproductive choice, full control over their own bodies and full access to family planning.”
Ah, yes, good to see the Leftist shilling out for Leftist women by loudly proclaiming a right that they definitely do not have: the right to kill their own children should they please. Even though the originator of American abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was the very eugenicist that Monbiot seemingly dislikes, as he makes note in one of the tweets in this thread. And we will get back to Sanger in just a moment.
“But I see population growth repeatedly blamed as THE MAIN CAUSE of climate breakdown and other global issues. This is flat wrong.”
“There’s something else to note. The great majority of the world’s population growth is happening in countries where most people are black or brown.”
“So why do so many people in the rich world (the great majority of whom, in my experience, are male, white and quite affluent) insist, often furiously, that the ‘real’ global issue, the ‘elephant in the room,’ is population growth?”
“The first part of the answer is deflection. Blaming other people for your own impacts is a familiar means of avoiding responsibility and shedding feelings of guilt. But why point to the birth rates of the poorest people? Why not to consumption by billionaires?”
“It’s clear to me that generalized deflection is an insufficient answer. This is a particular variety of deflection. What we see is white people pointing the finger at black and brown people, saying ‘It’s not us. It’s Them’.”
“In different ways, this has been happening for a long time. Throughout the colonial era and after, the rich nations portrayed themselves as the ‘civilized’, virtuous actors, while their colonial subjects were ‘inferior’, ‘barbaric’ and ‘degenerate.’”
“There was – and is – a long-standing moral panic about the reproduction rates of these ‘inferior’, ‘barbaric’ and ‘degenerate’ people. If something was not done, ‘They’ would overwhelm ‘Us’. The human species would decline as ‘inferior’ people took over.”
“It was this terror of being ‘outbred’, ‘outnumbered’, ‘diluted’ that inspired the eugenics movement. A similar set of claims persists to this day, and is popular among white supremacists. It’s called Replacement Theory.”
I agree! But then, why does Monbiot still adhere to the ridiculous beliefs of the pro-abortion movement? The movement was SPAWNED BY THE EUGENICS MOVEMENT AND IS NOTHING BUT EUGENICS ITSELF. According to an article on Arizona Capitol Times, quoting a 2011 CDC report on Abortion Surveillance, “black women make up 14% of the childbearing population. Yet, 36 percent of all abortions were obtained by black women. At a ratio of 474 abortions per 1,000 live births, black women have the highest ratio of any group in the country.”
And if you remember, I talked about how the NAACP has long stopped caring about black people because of their support for Planned Parenthood. In that article, I mentioned how abortion was the leading cause of death for black people, 1,800 black babies are aborted every day, 52% of all black pregnancies end in abortion, and that “79% of [PP’s] surgical abortion facilities [are] located within walking distance of African American or Hispanic/Latino neighborhoods.”
So why does this guy openly abhor the practice of eugenics, yet at the same time, claim to support “women’s rights” to practice such eugenics? The guy either is ignorant of the eugenics that is abortion or is a hypocrite.
But moving on, Monbiot reaches his conclusion:
“So what is the disturbing conclusion to this thread? The answer to my question – ‘why do so many people in rich nations claim that the biggest environmental problem is population growth?’ – is… racism.”
“I’m not saying this to cause offense. I’m saying it because it appears to be the most likely and parsimonious explanation of a bizarre phenomenon: affluent people with enormous impacts pointing the finger at poor people with tiny impacts.”
“Nor am I claiming that most of those who over-emphasize population are intentional racists. I think it is possible to entertain subconscious racist beliefs without actively wishing to discriminate against people of color.”
In short, his reasoning behind the affluent white people’s desire to control population growth is racism, be it intentional or not. I agree, but let’s not get things twisted here. Only ONE side of the political spectrum espouses such beliefs. Only ONE side advocates for eugenics of abortion and population control. Only THE LEFT believes in controlling populations for “the environment” (though we know perfectly well it’s for control and power as part of their communist ideal).
The rich, white liberal is the one that wishes to control population sizes wherever it might see fit. It’s no surprise, then, that a rich (for the time), white liberal by the name of Margaret Sanger once wrote to her friend Clarence Gamble that “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population…”
THE LEFT has idealized means of controlling various populations, be it through slavery, economic welfare (like today), abortion (like today) or other population control measures. Which is why it’s so funny to read the following from Monbiot:
In his lambasting review of Moore’s film, Monbiot writes: “When wealthy people, such as Moore and Gibbs, point to this issue without the necessary caveats, they are saying, in effect, ‘it’s not Us consuming, it’s Them breeding.’ It’s not hard to see why the far-right loves this film.”
“Population is where you go when you haven’t thought your argument through. Population is where you go when you don’t have the guts to face the structural, systemic causes of our predicament: inequality, oligarch power, capitalism.”
As I said, it is THE LEFT that espouses the eugenic belief of population control, not the Right or the “far-right.” Wanna know why the “far-right” likes Moore’s film? Because it DESTROYS the environmentalist movement’s arguments towards “clean” energy that isn’t clean whatsoever. Moore, in that film, said what the RIGHT has been saying for DECADES. Moore’s solution, however, is not something any conservative would want and is something only a LEFTIST would agree with, even if not this particular Leftist in question.
Again, the LEFT has been espousing and practicing the belief of eugenics. To blame CAPITALISM for a NATURAL occurrence of climate change is asinine. Don’t forget, the guy was discussing things in terms of anthropogenic climate change being real and being a problem. It isn’t. It’s a hoax. Climate change happens because ours is a dynamic climate. But we do not affect the climate at any rate, let alone at the rate that the environmentalist wackos claim we do. Which is another reason as to why we ABHOR population control, because it’s an inefficient non-solution to a non-existent problem that only leads to death and desolation, no matter the population being targeted.
But regardless, I am always happy to see some blue-on-blue fighting. Wrong as I may believe both are to different extents, it’s good to see this happen whenever it does.
“A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.”
Amidst a constant news cycle trying to spread fear and terror to hurt the economy and Donald Trump, I wish I could write something that takes your mind off of notable current events and talk about something positive. Unfortunately, I found few, if any, stories that are positive that I could write about and, instead, I will write about something that makes my blood boil: the imprisonment of an innocent man as a result of deranged and immoral laws.
Now, before I begin, I would like to mention that Argentina has more decent laws regarding protection of human life than the United States does (I say this both happy that my country of origin is this way and ashamed and appalled that this country dehumanizes the unborn). In Argentina, abortion is largely illegal unless a pregnancy presents a health concern for the mother and/or the pregnancy was the result of rape. Still not great, but better than what we have in the States, with selective abortion and public officials destroying economic relief regarding the Chinese coronavirus so that the biggest genocidal group in the world, Planned Parenthood, can get some tax payer money. However, considering this story, those two exceptions in Argentine abortion law (particularly the second) should be eliminated and abortion made entirely illegal in the Latin American country.
According to BioEdge: “An Argentine court has upheld the criminal conviction of a gynaecologist [sic.] who refused to abort the child of a rape victim in 2017. Dr. Leandro Rodriguez Lastra was sentenced to a 14-month suspended jail term, plus 28 months of disqualification from holding public office. Dr. Rodriguez Lastra will appeal.”
“The victim was a 19-year-old in her fifth month of pregnancy, the result of sexual abuse by a relative. At first she used an abortion drug provided by an NGO. That failed and she was referred to the hospital where Rodriguez Lastra was head of gynecology.”
“The doctor said that abortion posed a risk to both the unborn child and the mother. However, the judges said that the only thing necessary for a legal termination of pregnancy was a formal request from the rape victim. The child was later given up for adoption.”
So some good news, as the child is alive, but it is still ridiculous that the doctor would face criminal penalties for NOT taking another person’s life at the request of another.
If you want to be further outraged, read this:
“Faced with the intersection of so many vulnerabilities, the accused ignored the autonomy of the young woman, giving priority to the reproductive function that she symbolized as a woman, over her dignity, over her right to health and to be informed, accompanied, contained and respected in the process of interrupting the pregnancy, an interruption to which she had a right over any other right or interest… ignoring a woman’s voice, ignoring her vital needs, subjugating reproductive rights, devastating the psyche and enslaving the body in order to force pregnancy after a rape, means denying the victim’s status as a subject of rights and is the incarnation of gender violence in its most painful form.”
Wanna know where this came from? If you thought this was from a feminazi journalist in Argentina lambasting the doctor, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that. This is a quote from the court’s ruling, from one of the justices presiding over the case.
Yep, the court’s ruling regarding the sentencing of Dr. Lastra sounds exactly like what some SJW, feminazi writer for Vox would put together, but it’s part of an actual legal ruling.
Take note of the language used here. Of course, the original is in Spanish, but the rough translation says it all. They accuse the doctor of ignoring “the autonomy” of the young woman and “giving priority to the reproductive function that she symbolized as a woman.” If the doctor’s intention was to save both the baby and the young woman, which BioEdge said it was, that’s outright SLANDER from the COURT.
First of all, no one has autonomy. We have free will, but that’s different from autonomy. Autonomy means that we are bound by nothing other than ourselves and our own belief systems. That we have the right to choose whatever we want without consequence. That nothing and no one can control us. But if we are autonomous, that means that God is not omnipotent, as He has no control over us, and therefore, is no God at all. The young woman does not have autonomy. She has free will, but not autonomy.
Second, the doctor wasn’t prioritizing the woman as a sex object. That’s actually ridiculous! He was prioritizing the lives of the baby and the mother. He’s not the stereotypical depiction of a man that feminazis have, where he sees women as nothing more than sex objects. He’s not Hollywood and he’s not Bill Clinton; he’s a decent person from what little we know about him.
Third, while I know this was a translation, take a look at the word “interrupt”. The Spanish word for interrupt is “interrumpir”, so they mean the same thing. To “interrumpir” or interrupt, implies a temporary pause and a continuation later down the line. Abortion isn’t an “interruption” of a pregnancy; it’s TERMINATION. It’s MURDER.
The court, especially with that last bit after the ellipsis, makes the doctor out to sound exactly like he was the one who RAPED the young woman. The rapist, not the doctor, ignored the woman’s voice. The rapist, not the doctor, ignored her vital needs. The rapist, not the doctor, subjugated her reproductive rights. The rapist, not the doctor, devastated her psyche and enslaved her body. And yet, they say all these things ABOUT THE DOCTOR WHO REFUSED TO END A KID’S LIFE!
Now, I know what some Leftists might try and yell at me. “Does that mean you don’t care about a woman who was RAPED?!” For which I say: “shut up, you know that’s not the case and you don’t care about the life of a human being, so you have no right to judge me at any capacity.”
Of course I care about the woman who was raped. I feel sorry for her. She’s a victim of a horrendous injustice here. However, abortion is not a solution by any stretch of the imagination. Do you know what abortion in this circumstance does? Validates the rapist’s actions. The young woman was raped by a relative. Said relative could rape her again or someone else entirely. Eliminating the life of the child not only is actual murder, as it is scientifically undeniable that the child is alive in the womb, but allows for evidence of the rape to be eliminated as well, leaving the relative free to rape once again.
A DNA test would prove the child is the relative’s, thus proving the rape, and would throw the guy in jail. Eliminating the child means eliminating the evidence and that means allowing the rapist to walk free. How exactly is that a better alternative? If the young mother doesn’t want the child, give it up for adoption, as she ultimately did, thankfully.
But don’t seek out an abortion. A doctor who refuses to eliminate proven life in the womb should not be punished for DOING THE RIGHT THING. Abortion is never the answer because abortion will never not be murder.
It is despicable that a doctor who only thought of doing the right thing, certainly in the eyes of God, would be considered as doing evil in the eyes of the government. It is despicable that he should face any sort of punishment for NOT ending someone’s life.
I hope and pray that the doctor’s appeal is successful and he does not have to suffer any more than he has for doing the right thing.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap; if we do not give up.”
Before I begin, let me elaborate that what I mean by “obsolete” is not that I think it ought to be re-written or updated by any stretch of the imagination. I want that damned thing out of U.S. law books and every practicing abortionist in this country thrown in jail for the genocide that they willingly and knowingly perform day in and day out, with Planned Parenthood thrown into the dustbin of history alongside the KKK and forever marred as an utterly evil, soulless organization. What I mean by “obsolete” is that the language it uses in supporting a woman’s “right” to abortion is no longer enough to try to justify it.
Allow me to explain. The U.S. Supreme Court will hear today a case considering whether or not a Louisiana abortion law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges (the ability of a doctor to admit a patient to a nearby hospital) for hospitals within 30 miles of an abortion clinic is constitutional. The reason for this is that abortionists are currently not required to admit patients into a hospital and can simply perform an abortion pretty much immediately. Wouldn’t you know it, pro-murder people find trouble with this and believe it interferes with a woman’s “right” to kill her own baby.
The Court, according to Breitbart News, “will also consider whether abortion businesses have the legal right to file lawsuits that challenge abortion health and safety laws in the name of their own abortion patients.”
The Illinois Right to Life (IRL) is among many pro-life organizations that have filed an amicus brief at the Supreme Court. IRL’s program director, Dr. Steven Jacobs, wrote the brief for the organization. He told Breitbart News:
“Most briefs have argued that abortion organizations and clinics shouldn’t have standing to sue, but our brief is among the briefs of the Senators and Congressmen arguing that Roe v. Wade should be re-examined.”
“While they argue that the undue burden standard has been found unworkable, we argue that legal, scientific, and social developments show that the factual underpinnings of Roe have so changed as to have made it obsolete and argue for the constitutional rights of fetuses.”
What the good doctor is getting to is that the language used by Roe to justify abortion, specifically about how ambiguous the definition of “person” was at the time (1973), is utterly obsolete in this day and age for a variety of reasons.
As Jacobs explained, there is scientific consensus regarding the point at which life begins. That’s right, unlike the ridiculous climate change “consensus” of 97% or whatever the figure was, there actually is a REAL consensus among biologists about when life begins.
You see, according to Jacobs, “Roe dismissed Texas’ argument that fetuses had rights because there was no consensus on when life begins in 1973 and fetuses were not recognized as persons in most legal contexts, back then. Today, we know there is a scientific consensus that shows a human’s life begins at fertilization and fetal homicide laws show that most states recognize fetuses as human persons at fertilization.”
The argument Roe had made about a fetus not being a person is that the 14th Amendment did not clearly define a person (though I have talked about this in the past and argue that it still protects human fetuses). However, since 1973, scientific advancements have been made that clearly show the humanity of a person in the womb. We have sonograms, both in 2D and 3D, that show us a live feed of the baby in the womb. We have proven that a fetus can feel pain and scream when it is being aborted. If you remember, back in March of 2018, I wrote an article about someone I considered to be evil incarnate, Leah Torres, an abortionist who said she transects “the cord first so there’s really no opportunity [to scream].” They don’t scream because she DOESN’T LET THEM, not because they have a physical inability to do so (provided they have a larynx).
But we know that they feel pain beginning at the 20th week of conception, maybe even a bit before (some say roughly around 18 weeks). Abortion is murder and science has proven it, but people reject the science they don’t like for their personal feelings or benefit where it applies.
Back in 2019, Jacobs authored a bombshell of a study that found 80% of Americans believe biologists should decide the question of when life begins. Well, among more than 5,500 biologists (a massive sample size), 96% of them affirmed that life begins at fertilization, or conception.
I wonder if the Left, who apparently loves scientific consensus, would drop their evil arguments for abortion upon finding this out. Actually, I don’t wonder that at all because they would not. Abortion is a big political issue for them and it helps them out in some cases. They are trying to normalize it and justify it, even when increasing scientific evidence showing that fetuses are human piles up. But there is no mistaking it: Roe v. Wade should be overturned on moral, just and scientific grounds.
Jacobs continued in his comments:
“Since Roe said that abortion rights collapse if it is shown that fetuses are persons (p. 29 of the brief), since Justices have said that fetuses would have rights if it is shown that fetuses are humans (p. 29 of the brief), and since Planned Parenthood v. Casey said that the Court would have to overturn Roe if a change to the facts robbed it of its original justification (p. 8 of the brief) – fetuses’ constitutional rights should be recognized and Roe should be updated or overturned.”
Jacobs also summarized: “things have changed since fetuses were not recognized as biological humans at fertilization or legal persons in 1973.”
Jacobs also observed that situations have changed for women since the 70s. “The Court was told that ‘a woman, because of her pregnancy, is often not a productive member of society. She cannot work. She cannot hold a job. She’s not eligible for welfare. She cannot get unemployment compensation’ (p. 6 of the brief). However, recent legislation and government programs have addressed many of those issues (p. 23-24 of the brief) and women can give their children up for adoption or use the protection of safe haven laws to leave their infant at a police station or a fire station.”
Legislation like the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 allows working mothers to take maternity leave, being paid in full, and take care of their children in that time period. Women have plenty of financial and other abilities to take care of their children, and even if they still feel they cannot afford a child, giving children up for adoption is also an alternative. Simply put, there is no medical, financial or social reason for a mother to kill her own child.
If Roe were to be a court decision today, there would be absolutely no reason for the Court to say it is constitutional. There is no medical reason to say that a fetus is not human, as science has proven that it is and that its personhood lies under the personhood described by the 14th Amendment. There is no social or financial reason to allow for abortion given the advantages women have in those areas in this day and age, as well as the options apart from killing the baby.
It is no person’s right to kill another, unless for self-defense. When an abortionist aborts a fetus, he or she is committing murder. When a woman goes to an abortion clinic seeking to abort her child, she is trying to get someone to kill her baby. When someone argues in favor of abortion, they advocate for the genocide of millions of children in the womb.
Roe v. Wade is evil, should be overturned and be remembered with the same horrified and disgusted scorn as we view the Dredd Scott decision, if not more.
“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
We have, for a long time, discussed just what were Margaret Sanger’s intentions in funding pro-abortion organizations: the control and elimination of other races, who are deemed “inferior” and “weaker”. This has been Planned Parenthood’s, and Leftists’, objective, though they do not really tend to be open about this. In a recent climate change townhall, however, Bernie Sanders essentially admitted that that’s what he wants to do as President of the United States.
During the townhall, a woman whom CNN identified as a teacher (and this terrifies but doesn’t surprise me at the same time) said the following: “Human population growth has more than doubled in the last 50 years; the planet cannot sustain this growth. Empowering women, and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you (speaking to Sanders) be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?”
Okay, before we get to Sanders’ answer (no points for those who can guess it), allow me to address this horrible woman’s question. First, while the Earth’s population did double in the last 50 years, we have only seen a DECREASE in poverty and NEXT TO NO FAMINES outside of socialist hellholes like Soviet Russia.
We are not overpopulated in the least. As I said in an article from early January of this year, the overpopulation argument stems from the heavily-flawed Malthusian theorem, wherein the theorem suggests that populations increase exponentially while food grows arithmetically, which is far from the truth, even for Malthus’ own time.
Ignoring the fact that technology has made it so that a lot more food can be grown by a lot less people (farmers make up less than 2% of the U.S. employment numbers and can still grow enough food to send out not only to the rest of the country, but also other countries that buy our products), the theorem itself is based on pretty much nothing. More people means more food that can be grown.
What’s better, having one person growing as much food as he can, or having 100 people grow as much food as they can? If populations increase exponentially, so does food (and we’re only talking vegetables here, not even farm animals).
So the idea that we are overpopulated is entirely erroneous. What’s worse, however, is the insistence that we must be able to “control” (in other words, eliminate) populations so as to not run out of food. This is what this teacher (and I can’t believe she is one, but again, also not entirely surprised) is asking for and this is what Bernie Sanders answered:
“The answer’s ‘yes’. Women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions. And the Mexico City agreement – which denies American aid to those organizations around the world that allow women to have abortions or even get involved in birth control – to me is totally absurd. So I think, especially in poor countries around the world where women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies and where they can have the opportunity through birth control to control the number of kids they have, it’s something I very strongly support.”
Now, I have a lot to say about this. First, I find funny how he just feels the need to pander as much as possible. “Women… have the right to control their own bodies and make reproductive decisions.” Who exactly gives them that right? It’s nowhere in the Constitution, and it’s most definitely not in the Bible. Someone doesn’t have the right to something just because you say they do (and no, I’m not forgetting about the unconstitutional Roe v. Wade).
Second, notice the emphasis on controlling poor people’s populations. HE is the one saying women in poor countries don’t “necessarily want to have large numbers of babies”. How exactly does he know that? But what’s more, why specifically target poor people? Well, to be fair, that one is very much a rhetorical question. Planned Parenthood targets minority neighborhoods, those who are statistically more likely to be poor, regarding where they set up locations and are already controlling their populations. Since 1973, nearly 20 million black babies have been killed in the U.S. That’s a little less than half of the current black population in America (at least according to the 2010 census). Planned Parenthood is already systemically controlling the black population of America and now, these Leftists are demanding that we use OUR TAXPAYER MONEY to fund EUGENICS around the world, particularly in poor countries?
Finally, I would simply like to point out a particular word that Bernie used here. Let me write what he said once again: “women do not necessarily want to have large numbers of babies…” Notice that last word there? This guy fully recognizes that the kind of people he intends to target are babies. When the shooting in Odessa, Texas happened earlier this past week, the Left had been trying to point out how a 17-month-old baby had been injured in the shooting. Tragic as that is, let’s not beat around the bush: they do not care about that baby. 17 months earlier, they would argue that it didn’t have the right to life and that it wasn’t even human. So when is a baby a baby? These people don’t answer that because they have no answer. There are those who argue in favor of killing the baby even AFTER it is born, such as current Virginia Governor Ralph “Coonman” Northam.
These people realize very much that what they are killing are human babies. Argue as they might against it, they know these are babies for a FACT. And yet, they argue that it’s “women’s rights” or “women’s liberation” or even that it’s “necessary to fight climate change” to kill babies.
My friends, these are not sane people. These are not good people. These people are pagans, sacrificing children to appease a god of their own creation: mother nature. And they think it’s perfectly reasonable to do all this, not because it actually is reasonable, but because they have no heart – no soul – to tell them right from wrong.
They support this because they see it as right in their own eyes and not because they believe it is right in God’s eyes (and it definitely isn’t).
Killing children isn’t going to “solve” climate change any more than banning meat or gas-powered cars or whatever communist plan these people shared in that townhall because WE DO NOT CAUSE CLIMATE CHANGE AND CANNOT AFFECT IT SIGNIFICANTLY! Everything these people say is going to happen is utter bullcrap. Wanna know why? BECAUSE THEY’VE BEEN SAYING THIS SAME CRAP FOR DECADES AND NOTHING OF THE SORT HAS HAPPENED!
The glaciers aren’t melting, there isn’t a hole in the ozone layer, coastal cities aren’t going to get flooded, massive droughts and famines aren’t happening and we are not CAUSING CLIMATE CHANGE! In fact, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. hasn’t even seen any warming since 2005. And yet, Obama has gone on record pretty much year after year saying how that particular year was the “hottest year to date” as though he had the data of THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE PLANET to back up that claim.
Nothing the Democrats have suggested will do a darn thing to affect climate change because we can’t do anything to it. The funny thing, though, is that even if we did have the power to do that, Democrats’ plans wouldn’t do anything anyway. AOC’s former chief of staff said that the GND wasn’t about climate change but about changing the economic system of the U.S. Makes sense, considering it costs $93 TRILLION according to some estimates and it would bankrupt us almost immediately, all-the-while giving the government all the power in the world.
But as bad as trying to ban meat might be, to me, an even worse idea is to suggest we start killing people, particularly poor people, to combat climate change. And if you think abortion is as far as they would go, think again. The teacher brought up the question on the basis that THERE ARE ALREADY TOO MANY PEOPLE ON THE PLANET. Abortion would only be the first step, followed by genocide.
This is the sort of thing that has led to people like Hitler to commit massive atrocities like the Holocaust. Only, instead of suggesting to kill all Jews and all non-Aryan people, they are suggesting killing minorities and poor people. First, those who have some sort of disability (as is the case in Europe, where they abort babies who are diagnosed with Down Syndrome), then some sort of illness (illnesses as defined by the state) and then on to poor people and other “undesirables”.
Of course, the only people that get to not be killed are the rich, white liberals who think themselves gods. These people are demons in the flesh and they’re just getting started laying out the policies of Satan.
Shame on that teacher, shame on the audience who clapped after Bernie gave his answer, shame on Bernie Sanders, shame on the Democrats who agree with him (wouldn’t be surprised if that’s all of them), and shame on anyone who tries to argue that we, Christians and conservatives, are the evil and intolerant ones.

While Planned Parenthood still, for some reason, receives much more money from the federal government, it took a massive blow this past week when they chose genocide over continuing Title X services, which serve the needs of low-income Americans.
According to The Daily Wire, “The Trump administration had implemented a rule stating that any clinic accepting Title X funds must not refer women to an abortion provider or suggest where to get one.” The New York Times added: “The move could affect more than 1.5 million low-income women who rely on Planned Parenthood for services like birth control, pregnancy tests and screening for sexually transmitted diseases.”
The good news for those low-income women, of course, is that hospitals and other clinics that are not PP also provide those types of services and comply with Title X rules and regulations set by this administration.
In choosing to stick to mass infanticide, Planned Parenthood will lose $60 million in taxpayer funds. Unfortunately, they make a lot more than that in general, having reported almost $245 million in excess revenue for 2017-18, but this does a couple of things:
1) Planned Parenthood will lose some money, which is always a good thing.
2) Some babies will likely be saved as a result.
3) It further shows Trump to be one of, if not the most pro-life President we have had in ages.
Fox News reported that “Planned Parenthood’s pullout followed a June order from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that lifted a nationwide injunction that had prevented the Trump administration from enforcing the new rule. The court’s three-judge panel, with two judges appointed by President Trump, is still weighing Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit to overturn the rule but has allowed the administration to begin enforcement – a sign that the administration will ultimately win on the merits.”
While there is still more work to be done to fully defund Planned Parenthood, this is definitely a step in the right direction to doing that and yet another sign of Trump making and actually keeping the promises he made during the 2015-16 campaign trail.
Following the news, Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO of Americans United for Life, told Life News: “It’s a great day for women’s health in America. Planned Parenthood is America’s deadliest nonprofit, and the news that they’re refusing to accept taxpayer funds to target vulnerable women is a good thing for women’s health. Women deserve the chance to live empowered, full lives that are free from the harms that Planned Parenthood poses through abortion and abortion-focused services. Women who need true healthcare will have their needs met by authentic and eager healthcare providers across America.”
And that’s another point: Leftists will argue that PP helps with women’s healthcare issues like getting mammograms, checkups, pregnancy tests, etc., and as a result, they argue that PP is necessary and good for women, but hospitals, other clinics and even pharmacies provide the same services. Planned Parenthood will use these things as a cover for suggesting that they are women’s health providers when they are nothing more than a glorified slaughterhouse. Their main objective, as is clear from pulling out of Title X funding, is abortion. They care nothing of women or their healthcare, but to make money off of women’s poor sexual decisions. They take advantage of women, particularly low-income women, who do not feel they are capable of raising a child, and so suggest they get an abortion. That is what Planned Parenthood was doing with their Title X patients and the rule change regarding those kinds of suggestions puts that mission in peril, which is why they chose to forego Title X.
This PROVES they don’t care about women’s healthcare AT ALL. They only care about taking advantage of vulnerable women and killing as many babies in the womb as they can, seeing as they can make a huge profit off of their blood.
To them, killing children is more important than providing REAL health services to women. Seeing as they reportedly provided over 330,000 abortions in its latest annual report, it’s quite obvious that their main trade is the blood of the innocent. No longer can anyone even try and make the claim that Planned Parenthood is about providing women with healthcare. They made their choice here (no pun intended) in choosing abortion over Title X service of low-income women. If they are not allowed to kill poor people’s children, they leave. They never cared for the millions of women they serviced. Their only target was the life growing inside the pregnant women.
I imagine Satan is very proud of these child-killers.

Late last week, a female British judge “ordered a pregnant woman who reportedly has developmental disabilities and a mood disorder to have an abortion, even though the woman and her mother allegedly strenuously object,” reported The Daily Wire.
The Catholic News Agency reported that the pregnant woman in question is 22 weeks pregnant, is described as being “in her twenties”, is Catholic with a mother from Nigeria and “has the mental capacity of a grade school-age child,” according to The Daily Wire. CNA also said: “The woman’s mother, reported to be a former midwife, registered her absolute opposition to the abortion citing the Catholic faith of herself and her daughter.”
Justice Nathalie Lieven of the Court of Protection is the one who presided over the ruling and ultimately ordered the abortion, citing: “I am acutely conscious of the fact that for the State to order a woman to have a termination where it appears that she doesn’t want it is an immense intrusion… I have to operate in [her] best interests, not on society’s views of termination.” But wait, there’s more. Not only is she a massive hypocrite for taking away the woman’s choice on this matter (something that would be considered a cardinal sin for the Left if the ruling had ordered a woman to keep a baby she wouldn’t want), but she then goes on to insult the woman’s intelligence by saying: “I think she would like to have a baby in the same way she would like to have a nice doll.”
So she’s not only a massive hypocrite and murderer but she is also deeply insulting of the woman being ordered to kill her own child. Look, I don’t know the pregnant woman in question on a personal basis (she is unidentified), but if she is adamantly against the order of aborting her own child, I seriously doubt she considered her own baby to be in any way similar to a “nice doll”. I think she understands very well that what she is carrying inside her womb is a baby and that she very much wishes to have said baby and is (or was) heartbroken over the decision from the judge that she had to terminate the baby she wanted to keep.
But rejoice, everyone, as the public outcry that resulted from that decision has led the English Court of Appeals to overturn the original judge’s decision.
The Catholic News Agency reports that Lord Justice McCombe, Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Peter Jackson overruled the June 21st decision made by Justice Lieven. The original decision reportedly triggered more than 75,000 people to sign a petition from Right to Life UK asking U.K. Health and Social Care Secretary Matthew Hancock to “intervene in this case, so far as possible, to prevent this gross injustice being inflicted by the State on this family and ensure this woman is not forced to have an abortion.”
Bishop John Keenan of the Diocese of Paisley also encouraged people to sign the petition, stating the original ruling “introduces a dangerous new development in the overreach of the power of the state over its citizens.” Another bishop, Bishop John Sherrington of the Archdiocese of Westminster said: “Forcing a woman to have an abortion against her will, and that of her close family, infringes upon her human rights, not to mention the right of her unborn child to life in a family that has committed to caring for the child. In a free society like ours there is a delicate balance between the rights of the individual and the powers of the state. This is a sad and distressing decision for the whole family whom we keep in our prayers. This case, for which all information is not available, raises serious questions about the meaning of ‘best interests’ when a patient lacks mental capacity and is subject to the court’s decision against her will.”
Both bishops are absolutely right. That original decision was a gross overreach by the government, not unlike the Chinese communists, in infringing the rights of a woman. But this is the danger of big government. They get to decide what is in your “best interests” should you reportedly lack the mental capacity to apparently make your own decisions (even though the woman is adamantly explaining she wishes to keep her child). The government gets to decide whether or not your child gets to live if you are deemed not capable, in any way, of taking care of the child, which is seriously moronic. “Well, you see, Karen, you are incapable of making decisions for yourself and would not be able to properly take care of your child, so we’re gonna have to kill it for ya, how does that sound?” That’s the sort of logic trail people like Lieven (not even going to include her title since there was no justice at all in her decision) use when it comes to abortion: better the baby be killed than it perhaps live a poor life even with the chance to live a good one.
It’s not only asinine, it’s outright demonic. It’s the sort of thing pagan cultures would do on a regular basis: child sacrifice. And like pagan cultures, these pro-abortion people in the government do it to please false gods: themselves.
How is it in the woman’s best interests to force her to eliminate a child she wants to keep? May I also remind you of the fact that the woman, among developmental disabilities, also has a mood disorder? Meaning that there is an even greater chance of sending the woman into a deep depression upon forcing her to eliminate her own child. So how exactly is that decision being made in the woman’s “best interests”?
The answer, of course, is it’s not. It’s acting in the government’s best interests, as they are the ones who also get paid for the abortion occurring in the first place at one of the government-owned abortion facilities. It’s also acting in the government’s best interests by setting a precedent for this sort of thing. If the government wishes to eliminate your child for whatever reason and you say no, well there’s really nothing you can do because the government would’ve had this decision as a basis for future decisions. Granted, I highly doubt this is the first time the U.K. government has forced a woman to eliminate her child, but this could’ve still set a very dangerous precedent moving forward.
Of course, the government, if unchecked, will do whatever it wants regardless of precedent, but it is good that this issue was so widely talked about to the point higher judges in the U.K. legal system had to intervene.
But this is merely a preview for where the Left wishes to take us next. The only reason being “pro-choice” is so popular is because people like having a choice as to what to do. But as we can see from this example, there are plenty of people on the Left who are not “pro-choice” at all if the choice being made is not the “right one” in their minds. You don’t get to choose what school to send your kids to, you don’t get to choose what politician you want to win elections (*ahem* Google *ahem* the Obama administration *ahem*), you don’t get to choose to follow your religious beliefs if it is perceived that they are discriminatory to someone else, and as was the case for this pregnant woman, she did not have the choice to keep her child apparently because she’s too stupid, in the mind of the government, to keep her child and live a good and happy life.
These people aren’t about choice but dominance. There is a very good reason I said they view themselves as gods in the comparison with pagan cultures who would perform child sacrifices. They see themselves as gods in control of everything and everyone, or at least they believe they ought to be given said control. I’ve said this before, but it’s plenty relevant right now: for people who claim not to believe in God, they sure try hard to be like one.
But thanks be to God that He reigns supreme and the forces of evil could not take the life of an unborn child this time. Thank the Lord that He caused this story to be so widely spread and found so horrid that higher Justices in the U.K. legal system were moved to intervene in this matter. I just hope this serves as a wake-up call for the people of the U.K.: their government has gotten too big for their own good if they can force abortions on women who don’t want them.

Yesterday, we looked at an argument the Left often makes about climate change, that man-made climate change causes severe weather events like hurricanes and the like. However, we found that nothing could be further from the truth and there is no actual link between climate change itself and extreme weather. Similarly, the Left makes the argument that abortion reduces crime rates, but that one is not only wrong (and we will see why that is in a moment), but is rooted in racism.
Dr. Brian Clowes is a pro-life researcher working for Human Life International and recently had an interview with LifeSiteNews discussing a research paper by economists John Donohue III and Steven Levitt titled: “The impact of legalized abortion on crime over the last two decades,” which is a paper that expands upon a study they published back in 2001 that essentially claimed the same things – that abortion reduces crime rates.
What the economists found is that crime rates dropped after 1973, which is something Clowes acknowledges in the interview. However, he asserts that the reason for this is “not because fewer people were born but because fewer people in the 25-40 age bracket were committing a crime. This was partly due, [Clowes] said, to improved police techniques and a reduction in the widespread use of crack cocaine.”
So there are two things to note here. First, older people were committing less crimes at least in part due to improved police techniques, improvements in technology and an overall reduction in the use of hardcore drugs such as cocaine, which really exploded in the 1980s. This much makes sense, as improving police techniques often leads to good results that impact crime rates in a good way.
The second thing to note is the actual age bracket used here: 25-40. Statistician David Murray, whom Clowes cites, confirmed that the majority of crimes committed in the U.S. are by males between the ages of 17 and 25. Both Clowes and Murray assert that if abortion truly did reduce crime rates, the number would have dropped in that age range first, not in older ranges, which is what the economists found.
Back in 2001, when the report was first released by the economists, Murray told Fox News that homicide rates did drop among that age group, but aggravated assault among that age group increased. While I don’t exactly have the data, it stands to reason that at least part of the reason for this is an improvement in the medical field to treat wounds that otherwise would’ve been fatal. And again, police techniques can also be attributed, at least to some extent. The point is that while one type of crime was reduced, a different type, which can often lead to the first type, increased significantly, rendering the economists’ findings irrelevant at best.
But there is one other major component that we must take into account when talking about this issue whatsoever. And that component is the simple fact that while the economists recorded a drop in crime rates int the U.S. since Roe v. Wade passed (which is really more correlation than causation, as far as we can see), similar data was not replicated outside the U.S.
What do I mean? Well, the United Kingdom legalized abortion in 1968. But according to LifeSiteNews, “Eighteen years later, crime was increasing across the country, precisely when Donohue and Levitt’s analysis would have predicted a decline.” The same could be said of Russia, which, despite the fact they have some of the highest abortion rates in the world (37.4 per 1000 women aged 15-44 as of 2010) with a peak of 5.5 million abortions performed in 1965, ever since the collapse of the Soviet Union, violent crimes in the country skyrocketed.
So not only do abortions not seem to cause a decrease in crimes, other countries in the world with far higher abortion rates and legalized abortion for longer periods found themselves with HIGHER crime rates than before. I won’t go as far as to say that abortions cause crime (though abortions help rapists get rid of the “evidence” of their misdeeds), but abortion seems to not have anything to do with decreased crime rates. Countries that have had legal abortion for longer periods of time than the U.S. and have higher rates of abortion don’t seem to see any drop in crimes at all.
And now, let’s get to the part about how that study is rooted in racism, shall we?
Clowes noted that murder rates among African Americans skyrocketed by more than 500% from 1984 to 1993 despite the fact that African American women have abortions three times more often than white women do. Yet another example of the rates absolutely going the opposite way that the pro-abortion economists claimed they would go.
Clowes then went on to assert that both studies reflect a “eugenics mentality”. Clowes even went as far as to say that “the racism of eugenics and Planned Parenthood advocate Margaret Sanger is revealed in the assumptions found in Donohue and Levitt’s study,” according to LifeSiteNews.
“The unstated assertion behind all of this is that black people supposedly commit more crime than white people,” Clowes said. And given not only the rates at which a black woman is more likely to get an abortion than a white woman, but also the amount of times PP clinics emphasize going to minority neighborhoods and also target minority women, as well as the fact that Margaret Sanger considered black people to be “weeds”, you can logically observe that the study that makes the claim that abortion reduces crime rates are heavily rooted in racism.
The claim alone, considering the rates at which minorities will be more likely to get abortions, sounds rooted in racism. Another way to write that claim would be: “Abortion of minorities leads to reduced crime rates!” So while the economists don’t explicitly talk about minorities, the claims they make (which are wrong anyway) suggest that it’s good that minorities are having so many abortions because they create less criminals.
Now doesn’t that sound wrong to your ears? Well, it should, given just how incredibly wrong these two economists (and by extension, all who use their research) are when it comes to their positions. Abortion does not reduce crime. Neither do we see that actually happen in the U.S. nor do we see that happen outside the U.S. in countries like the U.K. and Russia, which actually show an increase in crime. But beyond that, it is racist to claim that abortion reduces crime because the vast majority of people who get abortions are minorities.
So the next time someone cites these economists and claims abortion reduces crime, remind them that minorities get abortions more often than white people, so that is the same thing as to say that minorities cause more crimes and aborting them reduces those crime rates. In other words, you can (rather credibly) call them racist and have some data to back up that claim that often gets thrown around so much.
“For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve.”
