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.”

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.”

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.

Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right – Part 4

“By far the greatest majority of Americans today are liberal and socialistic in their thinking. They are themselves the greatest hindrance to Christian conservatism. The unchanging truth that ‘man cannot go against that which he believes in his heart’ is perfectly understood by those who mould the collective thinking of the American people.” The Don Bell Report

 As I mentioned in Part 3, Nelson Bunker Hunt and Pat Robertson were instrumental in the founding of the CNP. The other two major founders are Tim LaHaye and T. Cullen Davis. There are several other powerful players behind the scenes who founded the CNP. Various websites claim others as founders, but these are the basic four who started the umbrella organization in 1981.

lahaye 2

Tim LaHaye

Tim LaHaye was born in 1926 in Detroit, Michigan. He is a Baptist preacher and attended Bob Jones University. He also holds a Doctor of Ministry degree from Western Seminary. LaHaye is most famous for his fictionalizing of Biblical truth in his Left Behind series of apocalyptic fiction, which he co-wrote with Jerry B. Jenkins. See Revelation 22:18-20.

After 25 years as pastor for Scott Memorial Church in San Diego, California, he left and started several groups that promoted his beliefs and his interest in conservative politics. In 1979, he encouraged fellow CNP charter member, Jerry Falwell, to found the Moral Majority, and sat on its board of directors. With money from LaHaye’s Left Behind series, the LaHaye’s gave 4.5 M to Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University for the “School of Prophecy” which opened in 2002 and is named after LaHaye.

In the 1980s, LaHaye founded the now defunct, American Coalition for Traditional Values and the Coalition for Religious Freedom, with CNP member and Moon front man, Dr. Robert Grant. Tim LaHaye founded the Pre-Tribulation Research Center along with Thomas Ice in 1998. The center is dedicated to producing material that supports a dispensationalist, pre-tribulation interpretation of the Bible, and has many very sound doctrine preachers on their website.

LaHaye played a significant role in getting the Religious Right to support George W. Bush for the presidency in 2000. In 2007, he endorsed Mike Huckabee during the primaries. Remember what Huckabee said about Common Core, ” Rebrand it, refocus it, but don’t retreat.” Link

LaHaye held the position of paid chairman with Sun Myung Moon’s now defunct Coalition for Religious Freedom (CRF). Moon was the founder of the Unification Church, and was the self-proclaimed Messiah to the world. He teaches the particularly vile heresy that not only did Jesus fail in His earthly ministry, but that He had sex with the women who followed Him. This was reported in the November 1990 Omega-Letter and the 1996, Religion in Politics.

In June, 1985, Coalition for Religious Freedom held several rallies, one of which was in Washington, D.C. There LaHaye urged the over 300 men and women present to support Moon by voluntarily going to jail with him for a week, if allowed to do so by authorities. (Moon was found guilty of willfully filing false income tax returns and conspiracy. ) “Not that I agree with his doctrine,” said LaHaye. “Not that I agree with what he teaches, because many of us don’t know what he teaches. We have only read about it in the paper and you know how much we can trust the papers.” Evidently LaHaye is unaware of the many books and research papers made available by Christian cult investigators. Certainly the newspapers aren’t the only source of information.

Other so-called evangelicals that served with LaHaye at CRF as executive committee and/or advisory board members were CNP charter member, Dominionist Don Wildmon, founder and president of the social activist American Family Association; Point Of View nationwide radio talk show host, CNP charter member, Marlin Maddoux, (deceased); CNP member, James Robison; charter CNP member, D. James Kennedy, author and pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, (deceased); Paul Crouch, TBN Network’s infamous founder; and Hal Lindsey. This certainly is an agenda of social activism which makes for strange ecumenical bedfellows. In a personal letter dated 6/3/93, LaHaye claims to have never received any pay for his stint as CRF’s “temporary chairman for a month and a half.” LaHaye seemed to be saying, “It’s okay to serve on the Board of an apostate organization as long as you don’t accept pay for it.”

LaHaye’s involvement with Moon was extremely disturbing, inasmuch as LaHaye was promoting Moon and Moon functions. In 1985, Carolyn Weaver, writing for Mother Jones Magazine, exposed the fact that LaHaye had received substantial funds from Moon’s top aid, Bo Hi Pak. This was discovered in a tape of a dictated thank you letter from LaHaye, thanking Pak for a contribution in excess of $500,000. LaHaye would not admit or deny the receipt of the contribution, instead he attacked the source of the information. (Reported in the 1996, Religion in Politics and Biblical Discernment Ministries) Like LaHaye, many other CNP members have received funding from Sun Myung Moon’s various front organizations. Moon financed the World parliament of Religions that included the Covenant of Isis and the Theosophical Society groups, and Moon’s websites promoted the UN Habitat II conference.

Tim LaHaye coordinated Christian Right voter registration projects under his 1983 American Coalition for Traditional Values. When the ACTV faded from public view, his wife Beverly started Concerned Women for America (CWA) as a grassroots formation as well as a lobbying group. Fellow CNP member, Michael Farris, Constitutional Convention proponent (via the Parental Rights Act), once worked for CWA. Reagan addressed the CWA in 1987, Jeane Kirkpatrick was another invited guest speaker for Beverly LaHaye’s group, and Jeane was a member of the CFR, Trilateral Commission, as well as UN Ambassador. Other guest speakers were fellow CNP member, Oliver North; Josh McDowell – Director of fellow CNP member and Dominionist, Bill Bright’s Campus Crusade for Christ; and Dominionist David Barton. Bev LaHaye endorsed Operation Rescue, run by Dominionist Randall Terry.

Temperament Analysis and Personality Typing

Tim LaHaye has been a leader in pushing the four temperaments of man which is a major deception in the church today and is the so-called spiritual application of pseudo-psychological temperament theory for individual personality assessment, which, in actuality, is derived from pagan and occultic philosophies, including Freud and Jung. The “temperament” can be defined as the unique mental and emotional disposition identifiable as the personality. The study of the temperaments, which are man-centered, self-oriented, and psycho-paganistic, are being offered to the unwitting as a sophisticated, almost magical way to understand our deepest natures and our personality types. In actuality, Christians could be unknowingly lured into the occult by practicing the temperaments and other New Age personality typologies. Link

Understanding ourselves in terms of typologies is unnecessary for walking after the Spirit and bearing the Fruit of the Spirit. Concentration on such categories only feeds the flesh and ultimately leads to works of the flesh. In Philippians 1:6, Paul is not talking about people reaching their greatest potential through understanding themselves through temperament categories. He is talking about the Holy Spirit’s work in each person through the process of sanctification whereby believers are transformed into the image of Christ. The four temperaments and similar typologies give false power based upon a lie. The Word of God is true. It is quick and powerful. To replace it or assist it with erroneous personality typologies is an insult to the Lord, especially considering the occult relationship.

T.  Cullen Davis

Priscilla-davis-Cullen-Davis

T. Cullen Davis and wife, Priscilla

Thomas Cullen Davis, born in 1933 in Ft. Worth, Texas, was a Texas oil heir. He lost his fortune in the recessions of the 1980s. In August 1976, Davis was charged with the murder of his estranged wife’s boyfriend, Stan Farr, and her daughter, Andrea Wilborn. Davis’ wife, Priscilla Davis, had filed for divorce in 1974, but in 1976 the divorce proceedings were still ongoing and the divorce had not been made official. Farr and Wilborn had been shot dead, and Davis’ wife Priscilla wounded, by a gunman who entered their home in Fort Worth on August 2, 1976. Link

In November 1977, after what has been called “one of the most expensive murder investigations and trials in Texas history,” a jury found Davis not guilty. He was the wealthiest man in the country to have ever stood trial for murder. The children of Stan Farr later sued Davis for wrongful death and were awarded $250,000 in a settlement. In 1978, Davis was arrested again, this time for allegedly hiring a hit man to murder his wife, Priscilla, as well as the judge overseeing their ongoing divorce litigation. Again he was ultimately acquitted. Blood Will Tell, by Gary Cartwright, is the story of the Davis murder trials and whether or not justice was served.

Pat Robertson, Tim LaHaye, Nelson Bunker Hunt, and T. Cullen Davis were the founders, but there were many more who were instrumental in funding the Council as well as creating the rightwing cabal. In Part 5, we’ll look at the Grand Poobah of the Council for National Policy.

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.

Colorado Democrats support infanticide

On March 3, 2015, Democrats on a Colorado state House panel defeated a pro-life bill — HB 1112: Born Alive Infant Protection Act — that would ensure babies who survive failed abortions receive appropriate medical care and protection.

That means those Democrats, like Barack and Michelle Obama, favor INFANTICIDE.

See “Michelle Obama wants to legalize partial-birth abortion” and “Obama is evil

baby

Steven Ertelt reports for LifeNews that in a party-line vote of 7 Democrats v. 6 Republicans, the Colorado House’s Public Health Care and Human Services Committee killed the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, HB 1112.

Leading pro-abortion groups NARAL and Planned Parenthood encouraged the Democrats on the panel to reject the bill, by claiming babies are not born alive after abortions in Colorado.

That is a lie.

In 2011, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recorded 1,298 cases of infant death in the U.S. due to “Other perinatal conditions,” which includes ICD-10 category P96.4, death subsequent to a failed “termination of pregnancy.” Put in simpler English, that means babies had been born alive after “botched” abortions, but were left alone in a room, to slowly die from starvation and neglect.

born alive left to die

“If passed, HB 1112 would have required abortionists to provide medical care for a child born alive during a failed abortion. Currently in Colorado, there are no state requirements instructing an abortionist to provide any type of medical attention to the infant,” says Sarah Zagorski of Colorado Citizens for Life. “It is incredibly disappointing that members of the Committee failed to pass this common-sense bill that would protect infants who survive failed abortions. The infants that would have been protected under HB 1112 are viable babies in the second and third trimester of pregnancy and deserve the highest quality medical care possible.:

In the United States, 30 states have laws similar to HB 1112 and the legislation has received bipartisan support.

In 2003, President George W. Bush signed into law a federal version of this pro-life legislation, the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act (PBABA). That is the same bill that when he was an Illinois State senator, Barack Obama had thrice voted against. Imagine how heartless and soul-less he must be to vote again and again for infanticide.

If you live in Colorado, please contact your representative and if they opposed the legislation, let them know you are disappointed that they voted against protecting innocent infants.  Additionally, if your representative voted in favor of the bill please call and thank them for defending life.

Here are the bad guys – the 7 members of the Colorado House committee, all Democrats, who voted in favor of infanticide by voting against HB 1112:

  1. Rep. Dianne Primavera, Chair (D-23) – Email: dianne.primavera.house@state.co.us; Phone: 303-866-4667
  2. ​​​​Rep. Jonathan Singer, Vice-Chair (D-11) – jonathan.singer.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2780
  3. Rep. Dominick Moreno (D-32) – dominick.moreno.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2964
  4. Rep. Jessie Danielson (D-24) – jessie.danielson.house@state.co.us; 303-866-5522
  5. ​​Rep. Max Tyler (D-23) – max@maxtyler.us; 303-866-2951​
  6. ​​Rep. Joann Ginal (D-52) – joann.ginal.house@state.co.us; 303-866-4569
  7. ​​​Rep. Jovan Melton (D-41) ​- jovan.melton.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2919

Here are the good guys — the 6 Colorado House committee members, all Republicans, who voted in favor of HB 1112:

  1. Rep. Kathleen Conti (R-38): kathleen.conti.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2953
  2. Rep. Janak Joshi (R-16): ​janak.joshi.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2937​
  3. Rep. Lang Sias (R-27): ​lang.sias.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2962
  4. Rep. Justin Everett (R-22): justin.everett.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2927
  5. Rep. Lois Landgraf (R-21): lois.landgraf.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2946
  6. Rep. JoAnn Windholz (R-30): joann.windholz.house@state.co.us; 303-866-2945

Note that the good guys are all Republicans, which contradicts the assertion that Republicans are just as bad as Democrats. (See Kelleigh’s post, “Enemies on the Left, False Friends on the Right, Part 1.”) That may be true at the national level in Congress (and even here, it’s a gross and unfair over-generalization), but it is certainly not true at the state and local level.

Those who insist Republicans are just as evil as Democrats must answer this question:

Since the U.S. political and electoral system is structurally set up as an effective two-party system, and since the historical record is that third party movements are signally unsuccessful, what are we to do? 

The challenge before us is how to get rid of the bad Republicans in Congress, especially those in leadership positions.
