NY State Assembly approves bill to inject poison into hearts of babies in the womb

For years, the New York state legislature has been embroiled in a battle over a package of bills called the Women’s Equality Act (WEA) that supposedly promotes the interests of women. The 10-point WEA is held up in part because the legislature has resisted the 10th point — a late-term abortion measure, AB 6221, which allows abortionists killing the unborn by shooting poison into their little beating hearts.

NY State AB 6221

Since 2013, abortion advocates have been holding the Women’s Equality Act hostage to this single AB 6221, refusing to break the 10-point bill up. The legislature resisted passing AB 6221 despite strenuous support from the supposedly Catholic Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The position of the Catholic Church is and consistently has been that abortion is an “intrinsic evil,” which means it is not subject to negotiation. Being an intrinsic evil, abortion also takes precedence before any of the Church’s other concerns, including the darling of the Left — “social justice.”

On Tuesday, March 24, 2015, in a vote of 94-49 the New York State Assembly approved passage of AB 6221, which will expand third-trimester abortions and allow non-doctors to perform abortions.

Third-trimester abortion is also called late-term abortion — the deliberate murder of babies who are 7 to 9 months old, who feel pain, and who are viable if allowed to live outside their mothers’ wombs.

New York State law currently allows for late-term abortion, i.e., abortion in the third trimester, only when the mother’s life is in danger. AB 6221, sponsored by Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, will instead allow abortion on-demand throughout all nine months, i.e., up until the 9th month. The law would be changed to allow abortion for any reason deemed “relevant to the well-being of the patient” including physical, emotional, psychological, and familial factors, and the mother’s age.

Lori Kehoe, New York State Right to Life executive director, said:

“Expanding cruel and brutal third-trimester abortions has long been a goal of the anti-life lobby who never met an abortion they didn’t like. With no regard for the fully developed unborn baby who is violently dismembered, or otherwise killed, the New York State Assembly once again put the abortion lobby above New York State women and their children. We now look once again to the Senate to hold the line in defense of the children which happens to also be in accordance with the will of the rest of the people. It is ridiculous that in 2015, with all the technology at our disposal, we are still arguing whether or not an eight month old baby in the womb deserves protection. It is doubtful that our descendants will look kindly upon this period in our history, when we fought for the right to dismember babies weeks, days and even minutes before birth.

New York State Right to Life will be discussing this and other attacks on members of the human family at their free-to-the-public Lobby for Life Day on April 29 at the Legislative Office Building in Albany.

NY Assemblywoman Deborah Glick

New York State Assemblywoman Deborah J. Glick represents District 66 in New York City’s Greenwich Village. Her official bio says “Deborah is the first openly lesbian or gay member of the New York State legislature” and that “As an elected official, she has focused on civil rights, reproductive freedom, health care, lesbian and gay rights, the environment, housing, higher education, social justice, animal rights and funding for the arts.”

Clearly, for Glick, “animal rights” do not include the rights of the human unborn, even up to 9 months old.

‘Queering Your Campus’ workshop calls pro-life movement ‘clinic terrorists’

safdaf

Campus Reform: Young feminists who recently attended the 11th annual National Young Feminist Leadership Conference (NYFLC) will return to their college campuses with a new rallying cry to combat pro-life “clinic terrorists.”

During the conference, hosted by the Feminist Majority Foundation, attendees could participate in a crash course on campus activism titled “Queering Your Campus.” According to NYFLC’s description of the workshop, students were taught how to organize on campus for gender-neutral restrooms and housing and foster “intersectional feminist activism.”

A flyer passed out during the workshop, and later obtained by Campus Reform, encouraged the young activists to “kick off [their] group meetings and amp up [their] next rally” using a variety of short chants including, but not limited to:

“Pro-life, that’s a lie/ You don’t care if women die!”

“Two, four, six, eight/ Separate church and state!”

“77 cents is not okay/We demand equal pay!”

drama

One of the proposed chants described individuals who oppose abortion as “clinic terrorists” and urged young women facing unexpected pregnancies to let young feminists on their campus know:

“Hey, hey! Ho, ho!/ Clinic terrorists have got to go!

“Whatever we wear, Wherever we go, Yes means yes, no means no! Pro-life men have got to go. When you get pregnant, let me know!”

Hey ho, what do you know - a pregnant man!

Hey ho, what do you know – a pregnant man!

In addition to the list of chants, conference-goers could take home stickers proclaiming “I [love] my local abortion provider” and purchase miniature finger puppets of historical female figures including Rosa Parks, Marie Curie, and Sojourner Truth.

Other workshops offered to attendees included “Reinventing Rosie: Reframing the Workforce for Women,” “Sex-positivity: Educate, Empower, Self-Define,” and “Keep Your Religion Off Our Bodies.” Climate change was also addressed with one breakout session titled “Ecofeminism: Activism to Create Climate Justice.”

The conference took place March 21-22 in Washington, D.C. On Monday, attendees took their activism to Capitol Hill for “Congressional Visit Day.”

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 11

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen” . . . Samuel Adams 

Richard Mellon Scaife

Richard Mellon Scaife (born July 3, 1932) was an American billionaire and newspaper publisher. Scaife owned and published the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. With $1.2 billion, Scaife, a principal heir to the Carnegie-Mellon banking, oil, and aluminum fortune, was No. 283 on the 2005 Forbes 400. In May, 2014, he announced that he had untreatable cancer. Link On Friday, July 4th, 2014, Richard Mellon Scaife died at the age of 82. Link Scaife has been a huge financial supporter of Heritage Foundation for many decades, as well as being on their board of trustees for years. Link

SCAIFE

Scaife provided support for a variety of organizations through the private, non-profit foundations he controlled: the Sarah Scaife Foundation (2012-990), Carthage Foundation, and Allegheny Foundation, and until 2001, the Scaife Family Foundation 2012-990), now controlled by his daughter Jennie and son David, children by his first wife. He was thought of as a neo-conservative donor, yet he funded both sides of the aisle.

Then there’s the Colcom Foundation (2012-990), run by Scaife’s sister, Cordelia Scaife May, until her death in 2005. Scroll down in the 990 form to the grants, and you’ll see that Cordelia May funded population control proponents, environmentalists, Carnegie-Mellon, the Nature Conservancy, John Tanton’s organizations, etc. Cordelia Scaife May was an environmentalist committed to population control, and believed limiting immigration was the best way to do it. She founded the Colcom Foundation to advance this goal, providing tens of millions to anti-immigrant groups, as well as funding environmental organizations. I would agree to limiting immigration, but not for the same reasons Cordelia and Richard had for funding these organizations.

Cordelia May was a close friend of John Tanton, another conservationist turned anti-immigration activist, responsible for the creation of a network of anti-immigrant groups, such as the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) and Numbers USA, headed by Roy Beck. The latter is promoting E-Verify, which would subject all Americans to an international databank. How would you like to go through a federal data bank in order to get a job?  Since 2001, Colcom has been the primary funder for many groups in the anti-immigrant John Tanton Network, giving over $17 million to Numbers USA, almost $15 million to FAIR, and more than $6 million to CIS.

Richard Mellon Scaife had long agreed with his sister, Cordelia Richard Scaife. Through his management of the Carthage Foundation and the Sarah Scaife Foundation, and together with the Scaife Family Foundation (controlled by Richard Scaife’s children since 2001), he strongly supported Tanton’s organizations with huge donations. He has donated more than $4 million to FAIR and more than $3 million to CIS since the early 1990s. Additionally, since 2001, the Scaife foundations have given Numbers USA $987,500. So let’s take a closer look at the Tanton Network.

John Tanton’s Numbers USA

Many conservatives are familiar with Roy Beck from Numbers USA. Roy Beck is the heir apparent to John Tanton’s network. Numbers USA has maintained a number of questionable contacts, such as the brazen Holocaust denier Jim Rizoli, who was listed as the group’s state contact for Massachusetts in early 2011. In its 2009 video, “Immigration 103—American Trauma: Jobs and the Economy,” Numbers USA featured the testimony of Roan Garcia-Quintana, a board member of the white nationalist organization, Council of Conservative Citizens. At a CofCC national conference, Garcia-Quintana stated, “There are three types of people in the world: Negroids, Mongroids, and Caucasians.”

From 1977 to 1981, columnist Samuel T. Francis was a policy analyst at the Heritage Foundation in Washington, D.C., specializing in foreign affairs, terrorism, and intelligence and internal security issues. Francis also wrote the Council of Conservative Citizens‘ platform, the “Statement of Principles.” Francis was editor of the Citizens Informer quarterly newsletter (published by the Council of Conservative Citizens) and an editor of The Occidental Quarterly, a white nationalist journal edited by Kevin Lamb and sponsored by William Regnery II.

Roy Beck’s writings have appeared on the anti-immigrant blog VDARE.com. VDARE was founded by the white nationalist, Peter Brimelow, and regularly features anti-Semitic, homophobic, and flagrantly racist authors and articles. VDARE has long allowed Tanton personnel to bridge the gap between the more concealed bigotry of their anti-immigrant project and their explicit white nationalist tendencies.

Just who is John Tanton, and what does he represent? Here is a list of his networks, and notice population control and eugenics. John Tanton M.D. is “publisher of The Social Contract,” and served as editor for its first 8 years. He is a retired eye surgeon whose boyhood on a farm made him into an ardent “greenie” conservationist and advocate for the environment.

His conviction that continued human population growth was a large part of the conservation problem led him to chair the National Sierra Club Population Committee (1971-74), and to the national board of Zero Population Growth (1973-78, including a term as president, 1975-77). In 1979, Tanton shifted his focus towards fighting immigration to reduce the U.S. population, and organized the anti-immigrant Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) based in Washington, D.C. Since then, Tanton has formed, funded, or otherwise been affiliated with many prominent anti-immigration organizations, in what has been termed the John Tanton Network. He is also closely affiliated with a number of white supremacist organizations such as the Pioneer Fund, whose founders included CNP charter member, Senator Jesse Helms. Tanton’s close relationships with white nationalists and eugenics is documented at the Center for New Community. And here is a map ofhis network.

Planned Parenthood Funding

Both Richard Mellon Scaife and his sister, Cordelia, were major donors to abortion rights advocates, and both have given millions to Planned Parenthood. Their mother, Sarah Mellon Scaife’s, favorite causes were population control, environmental conservation, and hospitals. As a matter of fact, Dick Scaife took out a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal on Monday, April 4, 2011. It was an open letter from Scaife to fellow conservatives, entitled, “Why Conservatives Should Oppose Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood.” Obviously from his statements in this letter, he loved Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger. Scaife called abortions a “minor aspect of Planned Parenthood’s mission” even though they recently announced that all affiliates should prepare to operate at least one abortion clinic over the course of the next two years. If abortions are so minor, why the plan for expansion? Link

It has always been my belief that our nation has lost the blessings of God because of our murder of innocents in their mothers’ wombs, and euthanizing our elderly. We are a culture of death. Yet, politicians, Tea Parties, and even our churches will not speak of these social issues which have destroyed the fabric and culture of American life and lifted the blessings of God from our nation.

In Part 12, of this series, we’ll take a look at a few of the top organizations funded by this so-called conservative, Richard Mellon Scaife, as well as his devotion and funding of Heritage Foundation.

Catholics are leaving the Democratic Party

It seems that every day, we are inundated by bad news, including posts published on FOTM.

It gets depressing.

But never fear! I bring you a piece of good news for a refreshing change!

Though U.S. Catholics are not a monolithic voting bloc, their votes are very important because in election after election, Catholics consistently voted the way that the majority in the election voted. In other words, the Catholic vote is a swing vote.

But the term “Catholic Democrats” should be and is an oxymoron. Despite church teachings on the sanctity of (heterosexual) marriage and on abortion being an un-negotiable “intrinsic evil,” too many American Catholics are and vote Democrat. Even worse, they remained Democrats despite their party openly and publicly denying God three times at the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

But that is beginning to change. Catholics, especially white Catholics, are leaving the Democratic Party.

Hallelujah!

Armor of God I can do all things through Christ

From California Catholic Daily, March 19, 2015:

It’s one of the central contradictions of American politics: that there’s no such thing as the “Catholic vote,” yet the Catholics vote still matters.

There’s no “Catholic vote” in terms of Catholics representing an electoral bloc that votes according to what their bishops tell them, or in lockstep with the tenets of their religion. Yet winning Catholic voters has been essential to almost every presidential victory in modern times. And the defection of Catholics voters has played a role in some of the most consequential congressional turnovers in recent history — from 1994 to 2014 — making Catholics the ultimate swing voters. And for Democrats, that could be bad news.

While Catholics have been swing voters since Richard Nixon’s second term, white Catholics are now identifying as Republican by historic margins. According to the most recent polling from the Pew Research Center, 53 percent of white Catholics now favor the GOP, versus 39 percent who favor the Democrats—the largest point spread in the history of the Pew poll. And for the first time, white Catholics are more Republican than the voting group usually considered the ultimate Republicans: white Protestants (a designation that includes both mainline and evangelical Protestants).

These are ominous signs for the Democrats, evincing a new and growing allegiance with the Republican Party that has long-term implications.

So why are white Catholics abandoning the Democratic Party? There are some long-term trends at play. Steve Krueger, head of the group Catholic Democrats, notes that conservative bishops have been beating the war drums since the George W. Bush administration, even going so far in some cases as to argue that “good” Catholics can’t vote for Democrats because of their support for abortion rights and, more recently, same-sex marriage — which has resulted in an increased politicization of the church.

Stephen Schneck of Catholic University’s Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies has noted that there’s been a certain “distillation” of the Catholic vote as a record number of presumably more liberal-leaning Catholics — some one-third of those raised Catholic — have left the faith altogether. “More and more of those who remain are those who actively choose to embrace the church and its teachings,” he wrote.

But neither of these trends explains why white Catholics have abandoned the Democratic Party so suddenly and so dramatically. After all, in 2008 Barack Obama managed to keep his margin of loss of white Catholic voters to John McCain to just 5 points. But four years later, he lost the white Catholic vote to Mitt Romney by a stunning 19 points.

Krueger points to the Catholic bishop’s demonization in 2011 of the “contraceptive mandate” in the Affordable Care Act, and their subsequent ginning up of the war on “religious liberty” — which was joined by elements of the religious right and fused with its war on Obamacare — as another factor helping to drive Catholics toward the GOP. And the numbers bear Krueger out. According to Pew, between 2009 and 2014, the number of white Catholics who said the Obama administration — and by inference the Democratic Party — was “unfriendly to religion” more than doubled from 17 percent to 36 percent. 

“The shift in the Catholic vote should really be a wakeup call to the Democrats,” says Krueger. “White Catholics are 18 percent of the electorate and Catholics vote 1 to 2 percentage points above their representation in the overall population. This is a significant voting bloc that now perceives Republicans as being more welcoming to people of faith.”

Do You Know Anyone Who Is Going To Hell?

What is hell?

We’re told that it’s a place of utter anguish and torment. An eternal destination for those who turn their backs on God and reject the Ten Commandments. Imagine the most painful, the most degrading, the most unspeakable torture you can imagine, multiply it by a thousand, and it probably will not come close to the reality of hell.

Flesh-eating demons, eternal fire, the stench of sulfur…

There’s no sleeping in hell. No rest or reprieve from continuous suffering and agony. And it lasts forever.

So who goes to hell?

Those who commit murder are going to hell.

Those who lie and deceive in order to gain money or political power are going to hell. (Anyone come to mind?)

Those who practice abortion are going to hell.

Those who knowingly vote for Democratic candidates who legislate for abortion are going to hell.

Those who peddle pornography are going to hell, including most mainstream television, movies, and magazines.

Those who dress or pose immodestly, drawing others to sin, are going to hell.

Those who have sold their souls in exchange for fame and success are going to hell.

Those who legislate or resort to subterfuge in an effort to disarm the American people are going to hell.

Those who work to remove God, prayer, and Christianity from schools and society are going to hell.

Those who abuse their positions of religious or spiritual leadership with false teachings of progressivism, multiculturalism, diversity, and socialism are going to hell.

Those who teach our children and pollute their minds with false teachings of progressivism, multiculturalism, diversity, and socialism are going to hell.

Those who live off the work of others, while refusing to work themselves, are dangerously close to going to hell.

Those who promote and encourage racism through diversity, multiculturalism, and socialist policies are dangerously close to going to hell.

Those who are angry and indignant at reading this because they recognize themselves are most likely going to hell, if they don’t change.

Do you know anyone who is going to hell?

Why is Christianity Today Defending Racist Abortion Activist Margaret Sanger?

SANGER 2

Christianity Today, founded by none other than Billy Graham, is not only the name of a popular magazine/online news source for evangelicals, it’s a phrase that makes one wonder: “What is Christianity today?” I would suggest, in too many ways, it’s largely disconnected from the Christ who inspired it.

“I do not mean to excuse Sanger for holding these views, but I do want to give the charge of ‘eugenicist’ a more complete background,” writes Stone as she chooses to give a selective background of the inarguably racist, elitist and anti-Christian worldview of one of the leading members of the American Eugenics Society. (If she wanted a more complete background, she could easily have watched Maafa21 and gotten a thorough perspective on the mother of Planned Parenthood.) Instead, she proudly tweeted: “I am @amyjuliabecker’s blog today, defending #MargaretSanger and talking about how #birthcontrol saves lives.” (Thanks to SaynSumthn blog for screen grabbing the tweet!) Stone has since removed the tweet and later claimed she was never trying to defend Margaret Sanger.

STONE-TWEETS-1

Her twitter responses further illuminated a cluelessness about the central figure in her article, stating in several different tweets that: “I believe I did not accurately estimate how great a distraction the Sanger example would be. My primary concern is global women’s health not defending Margaret Sanger…In her early days, she was motivated by compassion for the least of these.”

Nice try. From Sanger’s early days (she established her first “clinic” in 1916) to her dying days (in 1966), her eugenic views about birth control and human life were despicable. Here are just a few Sanger quotes (from her own writings) that span the entire spectrum of her public activism:

  • “Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease…Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks [of people] that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.” (Pivot of Civilization, 1917, Chapter 5, “Cruelty of Charity”)
  • “Birth control itself, often denounced as a violation of natural law, is nothing more or less than the facilitation of the process of weeding out the unfit, of preventing the birth of defectives or of those who will become defective.” (Women And The New Race, 1920, Chapter 18)
  • “We who advocate Birth Control, on the other hand, lay all our emphasis upon stopping not only the reproduction of the unfit but upon stopping all reproduction when there is not economic means of providing proper care…We hold that the world is already overpopulated.” (Birth Control and Racial Betterment, Birth Control Review, February 1919, page 11)
  • “…apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is already tainted…to apportion farm lands and homesteads for these segregated persons where they would be…for the period of their entire lives…the whole dysgenic population would have its choice of segregation or sterilization.” (Plan For Peace, Birth Control Review, April 1932, Vol 26, Number 4)
  • “I think the greatest sin in the world is bringing children in the world—that have disease from their parents that have no chance in the world to be a human being practically. Delinquents, prisoners, all sorts of things just marked when they’re born. That to me is the greatest sin.” (1957 video interview with Mike Wallace)

Granted, Stone somewhat alludes to Sanger’s eugenic views, but then excuses them because other “medical professionals” held the same ones. Well, they were just as wrong. From Sanger’s first public moments to the end of her life, her repugnant views never changed…just the semantics. After World War II, for instance, it wasn’t as popular to talk about forced sterilizations in light of the American Eugenics export of “racial hygiene theory” and the Holocaust that was based and implemented on its pseudoscientific lies. So Sanger suggested “voluntary” sterilizations of humans who were “unfit” to reproduce.

I find that certain liberals love their anecdotes but have such an aversion to history. It seems to be all about feelings. It’s all about the emotional devoid of the evidential.

I just returned from speaking on a panel at the United Nations, “Living Cooperation: Sexual Rights and Religious Rights at the UN”, which was part of a 2-week long conference for the Commission on the Status of Women (#CSW59). The panel consisted of 6 speakers. I joined 2 others from C-Fam (Center for Family and Human Rights) who shared a pro-life/pro-family worldview. Three other speakers (SisterSong, Muslims for Progressive Values, and International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission), and the moderator shared a pro-abortion, pro-redefined-family/LGBT worldview. The conversation was wonderfully respectful and allowed some great dialogue. The interesting commonality among those who advocated for abortion and LGBT “rights” was that feelings were the basis of truth…not biological facts, not history, not statistics…just the emotional.

Monica Simpson, the ever-affable Executive Director of SisterSong, made the common claim about abortion reducing maternal mortality using Georgia as an example (giving rates but not actual numbers). Just to clarify, in 2007, 548 women sadly died throughout the entire United States from pregnancy complications; there were over 1.2 million abortions. I responded to Simpson that the Maternal Mortality Rate (MMR) in America plummeted from 574.3 per 100,000 live births in 1917 to 26.1 per 100,000 live births in 1970 all without legalizing abortion (see infographic). It was medical advances like penicillin and sterilized medical equipment and environments and better healthcare that led to this drastic decline in deaths—not abortion and not contraception.

ABORTION-AND-MMR

Better healthcare for women before, during and after pregnancy is the solution–not cancer-causing oral contraceptives, bone-density reducing Depo Provera, and billion-dollar population-control organizations like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (promoted in her article) which believes in achieving a very eugenic “zero population growth” (because humans, in the pseudoscience of eugenics, are the scourge upon the earth…well, at least those deemed “less fit” to live). In this alarmist TED presentation that addresses the need to stop population growth to “save the planet” (see video here starting at 2:28), Bill Gates says: “First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” How do vaccinations reduce population growth? How does better healthcare reduce population growth? Only efforts like sterilization, birth control and abortion prevent and/or eliminate reproduction. This may explain why the Gates Foundation gives millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood.

Perhaps Stone, like many other liberal evangelicals, is naïve about global “family planning” funding and that it is inseparable from abortion. Perhaps Stone would rather ignore the 320% risk increase of Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) that women who use oral contraceptives (OC) face over those who don’t use OC (Louise Brinton, Ph.D., Branch Chief and Senior Investigator of the National Institutes of Health’s National Cancer Institute, was one of the lead researchers in this study that is ignored by her own employer). Perhaps Stone knows nothing of the clandestine and immoral Depo-Provera human experiments and how the injectable drug is aimed at primarily African countries. It is, by the way, the “birth control” choice of Melinda Gates’ efforts.

Stone uses old disputed data that, if one spent any time researching, would realize is a conjured stat from the Guttmacher Institute and the World Health Organization (WHO). She promotes the false narrative of 68,000 women dying from “unsafe” abortions, globally, as proof for the need for contraception. Guttmacher has revised this “stat” to 47,000 several years ago, although it doesn’t change the fact that the Planned Parenthood-funded organization cites the WHO as the source of the data, who then cites Guttmacher as the source of the data. Nice circular citation. She does realize, I hope, that abortion is always unsafe for at least one of the human beings involved and often for both mother and child (whether in a legal or an illegal abortion).

In fact, Stone then plugs a “study” done by Guttmacher (although her link goes nowhere, this is the study she’s regurgitating) that extols all of the alleged “benefits” of contraception with the typical unsubstantiated “stats” that the pro-abortion think tank is known for. The study is jointly done, by the way, by the UNFPA (formerly known as the United Nations Fund for Population Activities but now with the acronym-challenged name of United Nations Population Fund) which has been instrumentally involved in supporting and enabling China’s barbaric One-Child Policy. Contraception, here in the U.S., has not reduced our national unintended pregnancy rate. In 1995, according to the CDC, that rate was 49%. Twenty years later, even Guttmacher admits that the rate has only increased; it is 51% today. So with more access to contraception than ever before, we face more unintended pregnancies. And Guttmacher declared: “The truth is that behind virtually every abortion is an unintended pregnancy.” This while the million-dollar abortion activist organization weaves tall tales, like the study and deceptive “stats” Stone promoted in her article.

One would think that Stone, as a professing Christian, would do more to discover truth since it’s Truth that saves people lives, not birth control.

Planned Parenthood supporter yells “Hail Satan” at California city council meeting

Want to see what a satanist looks like?

Take a good look at the fat middle-aged man in the black-&-tan striped polo shirt in the pic below.

Planned Parenthood satanic supporter

His name is Marcus Jay Shapiro, a rabid supporter of the abortion mill Planned Parenthood.

At an El Centro City Council meeting on March 4, 2015, Shapiro was asked to leave the meeting for threatening a pro-life pastor. Shapiro yelled “Hail Satan!” as he was being escorted out by police.

El Centro is a city in the far southeastern corner of California, near San Diego and the Mexican city of Mexicali. A charter city, El Centro owns the local hospital El Centro Regional Medical Center. The members of the City Council are also the Community Development Commission and the Redevelopment Agency governing board.

Note: A charter city is a city in which the governing system is defined by the city’s own charter document rather than by state, provincial, regional or national laws.

On her blog Saynsumthn, Carole Novielli recounts what happened at the meeting.

Some 2,000 people attended the El Centro Council meeting, most of them angry that the El Centro Regional Hospital had signed a transfer agreement for Planned Parenthood to open an abortion clinic — without any public input.

Christ Community Church pastor Walter Colace called the hospital’s decision an “act of betrayal.

Also speaking before the council was David Gibbs, an attorney for the Alliance Defending Freedom and president of the National Center for Life and Liberty. During his speech, Gibbs said Marcus Shapiro had threatened pastor Colace and asked the city council to have Shapiro removed from the meeting.

David Gibbs

Gibbs’ accusation is confirmed by members of Christ Community Church at the meeting who said they had eyewitnessed Shapiro saying vulgar things to the pastor, repeatedly using the F word.

You can hear Shapiro yelling “Hail Satan” at the 2:43 mark in the video clip below:

On the YouTube site of the video, Shapiro was the first to leave comments, insisting that he had not threatened anyone that he believes “Satan is fake.” He also wrote a comment on Novielli’s blog, directed at David Gibbs, spewing another vulgarity while denying that he had threatened anyone at the meeting.

Marcus Shapiro's comment

Marcus Shapiro’s Facebook page shows him to be a supporter of Planned Parenthood. More than that, among his photos is this satanic pic:

Marcus Shapiro Facebook satanism

Novielli points out that the use of the “Hail Satan” mantra is not new to abortion supporters. During heated abortion debates in the Texas legislature, pro-aborts in the Texas Capitol were chanting “HAIL SATAN,” as well:

  • Here a pro-choicer used a sign that said “Hail Satan, Abort Everyone.”
  • Here a pro-choicer left an abortion clinic using the devilish chant.
