The Screwtape Epilogue: Pastor Pens Letter Welcoming Planned Parenthood

The Screwtape Epilogue: Pastor Pens Letter Welcoming Planned Parenthood

screwtape_letters

The Rev. Walter Baer of the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation in New Orleans has penned a letter that could be an epilogue from the C.S. Lewis classic. Screwtape would be proud of this one. The words practically slither off the screen.

Rev. Baer is pleased to welcome the new Planned Parenthood clinic to his area, and wishes to extend his heartfelt support for the clinic and thank them for all the good service they will provide his community. He writes:

“I write to express my support for the right of the clinic to be there and to serve the reproductive needs of our community.” (italics mine)

The business that kills babies for profit has a right to exist? (But those babies do not.)

In the earliest days of Christianity, the Christians set themselves apart from the rest of their culture in many ways, in particular, they refused to expose their infants. They refused to set the “unwanted” or “unplanned” infants on rocks in the desert heat to be scorched and picked apart by animals and birds of prey. But you, Rev. Baer, support the right of the clinic that is the modern-day equivalent of that barbaric ancient practice. And you consider that Christian behavior?

“Lack of access to contraception can be among the chief causes of abortion, to which some are forced to turn in tragic cases.”

First, this myth that contraception is hard to come by is absurd and not worthy of any intelligent person. Birth control is widely available and ridiculously easy to access. The only “lack” is the will of contraception-using women to pay for it themselves.

Second, statistically more than half of women seeking an abortion were using contraception when they became pregnant. More than 25% of women have had more than one abortion, while using contraception. Clearly, contraception is not the answer to reducing elective abortions.

Finally, you are right, Rev. Baer, to say that some women are forced into abortion. Many, many women are coerced and bullied into abortion by family members or partners, and underage girls are literally forced into having abortions by their adult abusers. Or have you not heard?

The very organization you warmly welcome into your community has a history of covering up child rape. They are in it for the money, after all, and not interested in stopping the flow of pregnant girls into their clinics. Who cares about child rape? Who really cares about those girls? Just kill their babies and send them back to their abusers. Just means more money down the road.

“The church supports the right of a woman to make her own choices in these matters, while rejecting abortion as a means of birth control or mere convenience.”

Do fathers have any rights, Rev. Baer? Does the child have any right? Say, to live?

“The official position of our church is that all human life is sacred from its inception until death.”

Sacred, but disposable? Sacred, but not worthy of protection? Sacred, but having no right to exist? Sacred, but not so sacred that it can’t be “terminated” at will? A very strange definition of sacred, indeed.

“While we acknowledge that in this country, it is the legal right of every woman to have a medically safe abortion, as Christians we believe strongly that if this right is exercised, it should be used only in extreme situations.”

Planned Parenthood does not make millions of dollars every year off the “extreme situations.” Abortion is their endless gravy train. No reason to abort is a bad reason for them.

“We emphatically oppose abortion as a means of birth control, family planning, sex selection or any reason of mere convenience.”

Why? Isn’t it a woman’s reproductive right? Who decides what is “mere convenience” anyway? And who are you to limit a woman’s exercise of her rights? Now you want to set moral restrictions on this precious “right”?

“The Episcopal Church expresses its unequivocal opposition to any legislative, executive or judicial action on the part of local, state or national governments that abridges the right of a woman to reach an informed decision about the termination of pregnancy or that would limit the access of a woman to safe means of acting on her decision.”  (italics mine)

So, which is it, Reverend? You can’t have it both ways. Either you support, unequivocally, a woman’s unrestricted “right” to abortion at any time for any reason, or you don’t. You can’t place your own ethical restrictions on the decision to abort while still insisting that local, state and national governments cannot do the same.

Now for Rev. Baer’s real money-line. This is the one that truly gives him away.

“As a parish church that is named for the most wondrous conception in history, we welcome the Planned Parenthood clinic to the neighborhood. It will serve a very important role in education, health screenings, contraception, and, when necessary, a safe place for the termination of a pregnancy.” (italics mine)

First, when is it necessary to kill a child, Rev. Baer? Tell me. Tell me when it is necessary to kill a defenseless and innocent child? I want to know.

Second, you are nothing more than a coward hiding behind the euphemisms of the culture of death. You speak of terminating a pregnancy as though there is no life being terminated. You ignore the child and the murder of that child. You disregard the humanity of the child in the womb and speak only of pregnancy. There is no such thing as pregnancy without the existence of a new human being; a human child created by the God you claim to know and worship. You claim for yourself the right to determine who lives and who dies.

And for the record, childbirth successfully terminates pregnancy, without killing.

But for me, Reverend, what makes your letter nothing but utterly wicked is your attempt to correlate the Divine conception of the Son of God in the immaculate womb of Mary with the killing-for-profit, the preying upon innocents, the destruction of helpless, tiny children done by Planned Parenthood every single day.

In that, the serpent is revealed. Satan is terrified of the Virgin Mother of God, for from her came the Incarnate Word that is his total defeat. He despises her humble fiat that ushered in the salvation of the world. It is truly wicked to twist and distort the Annunciation in order to mask the evil of Planned Parenthood and try to elevate it to some place of admiration.

What you have forgotten, Reverend, but what Satan has not, is that Mary’s foot is firmly, eternally atop his crushed head.

Yes, your words are purely wicked and your letter was written with the spirit and influence of the evil one. You are aiding and abetting a greedy, dishonest, predatory corporation. You have attempted to convey upon them the honor of good service and nobility, which makes you either pitifully deceived and blind or a stone-cold liar. Perhaps both.

I realize you’re hardly the only “Christian” pastor in America to support the evil of abortion, and I would say the same to anyone who professes to be a follower of Jesus Christ and a shepherd of souls. The blood of innocent children is on your hands. The agonizing wounds of untold numbers of mothers is partly yours to account for.

Women and children deserve far better than to be brutalized, exploited, and killed by abortion. You claim to be a servant of Christ — you have no excuse whatsoever for raising your voice in support of the slaughter of innocent children. You have no excuse whatsoever for not doing everything in your power to stop the slaughter.

Obama and Cecile’s Caricature of the American Woman

at Catholic Online


Cecile Richards has a new gig.  At least until November 6.  She’s left her day job in order to campaign full-time for her BFF, Barack Obama, saying that all our daughters’ futures are at stake. (Just curious, Cecile: does that include our daughters in the womb, too? You know, the ones who are often killed just because they’re girls? Oh, I forgot; you don’t like to talk about them.)

Planned Parenthood pays her an annual salary of over $400k, but of course, PP simply could not survive and continue to do all their “philanthropic” work of providing women with comprehensive health care without the generous funding they get from taxpayers, to the tune of $550 million dollars a year. (Wherever would they get revenue from if not the Federal government?)

Once more, for the record: Planned Parenthood does not now, nor have they ever provided a single woman with a mammogram. There’s not one PP clinic in the country that can give a woman a mammogram. Yet once again, Barack Obama perpetuated that myth during the last debate because it serves the false narrative that women everywhere will die without PP. And of course, no one in the Obama-media bothered to tell the truth.

Planned Parenthood is not a network of health care clinics serving women out of the goodness of their hearts. It is the world’s largest abortion mill. They exist to perform abortions, period. If tomorrow they could no longer kill babies, then tomorrow they would close their doors. Does anyone seriously believe otherwise? There are no million dollar profits in adoption referrals, or Pap smears, or manual breast exams, or STD testing, or condom distribution. But there are billions of dollars to be made from terminating babies.

Every dollar they make is stained with innocent blood. Every dollar of ours that they take is also blood-stained. No matter what they claim they use it for, it helps them kill babies because that’s where this so-called non-profit’s profits come from.

Now Cecile is scared witless that Romney will defeat her better half, so she has put aside her other job in order to concentrate on her real job — protecting Planned Parenthood’s federal gravy train and perhaps her own cushy salary. Doesn’t anyone else find it slimy that the CEO of a industry that gets $550 million dollars of federal tax dollars every year is now openly campaigning for the Presidential candidate who has used every ounce of his own political capital to protect her organization from losing that federal funding?

For now til the election, Cecile will rant about the supposed misogynist policies of Romney/Ryan and how they want to take women backward 40 years and how they want to deny women basic healthcare, and blah, blah, blah. She will paint another layer on the portrait of the American woman that she and Obama and every other pro-abortion Democrat has been holding up as the only true picture of women today.

Quite frankly, Cecile, (to use a phrase you love) I’ve had quite enough, more than enough, of the vulgar caricature of the American woman being presented by you and Planned Parenthood and all your liberal feminist friends, Obama and his administration, and the manipulative, cowardly, dishonest institution we used to call the Press.

FOR THE RECORD: First, don’t any of you dare reduce me to my “lady parts.” You wanna talk about sexist remarks? That one takes the cake, and the irony is that “women” are the ones spouting it. So much for the value of our intellect, ladies. All that really matters is our vagina.

Speaking of vaginas, stop dressing up in vagina costumes already. It’s gross and childish and makes you look like a complete idiot. You’re only furthering the idea that women are nothing more than vaginas. Grow up.

For heaven’s sake, stop making political ads with naked women holding signs in front of their bodies. Again, you’re the ones portraying women as merely physical, sexual objects reduced to reproductive organs, and you’re blaming Republican MEN for this?

Above all, don’t you dare — and I mean don’t you DARE — tell me that my freedom, my success, my autonomy, my happiness, my life is found in executing my own children. Don’t you dare tell me that I can only be who I’m meant to be and have the life I want if I literally tear my babies into pieces. Terminating my children is not the mark of my liberation. Do not tell me that the womb must also be a child’s death chamber in order for me to be wholly free. Don’t you dare insist that women are only empowered when they can snuff out the lives of their own sons and daughters.

Abortion is NOT health care! No procedure that intentionally leaves a human being dead can be considered health care. Abortion is the biggest lie, the greatest scam ever foisted on women.

Hollywood celebrities like Eva Longoria, Meryl Streep, Scarlett Johansson, Kyra Sedwick, and so many others are busy demeaning women — like me — who aren’t towing the liberal, pro-abortion feminist line with the requisite enthusiasm (or any enthusiasm at all, thank you). We’re stupid not to vote for Obama. We’re hurting women by voting for Romney/Ryan. They publish crude tweets calling us disgusting, belittling names. Refusal to embrace abortion and contraception cannot be tolerated, so they resort to mean-girl tactics.

Stop telling the world that the normal biological functions of the female body require carcinogenic hormonal steroids in order to be managed effectively. Fertility is not a disease! Pregnancy is not an illness or a malfunction! I do not need nor do I desire your lousy, cancer-causing contraceptive drugs, and I refuse to pay for yours. You have no right to demand that I or anyone else subsidize your sexual habits. You want freedom? Fine — pay for your own contraception if you can’t live without it. Don’t you dare demand that I do, or that my Church bow to your petulant demands. You’re the ones screaming for the government to get out of your bedrooms — you can’t have it both ways.

And by the way, pay attention to the lunacy of your own hypocrisy: you demand environmental purity for the sake of protecting the planet, but you’re dogmatically insistent on polluting the female body with pills and devices that cause all sorts of health problems and even permanent physical damage. I guess the only environment you can still poison with impunity these days is a woman’s body.

Next, your shrill and whiny cry of a “war on women” here in America is just about the stupidest, most vain and arrogant display of “victimhood” I’ve ever seen. Apparently, none of you have paid any attention to what goes on in Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and even right here in America at the hands of Islamic men. You women are college-educated and degreed; you’re CEO’s; you’re lawyers and doctors and engineers; you’re professors and diplomats and Governors and Senators. You’re Heads of State and international political players. You can be and do anything you want. You’re FREE. And you’re seriously going to say you’re under assault because Americans don’t want to be forced to pay for your birth control and abortions??

You’re not targeted for assassination in the name of “honor”, are you? You’re not whipped for talking to a man, are you? You’re not denied education or voting rights or independence because you’re considered less valuable than the family dog, are you? You’re not kept illiterate or shot in the head for daring to say that you deserve to know how to read a book, are you?

Tell your tale of woe to Malala Yousufzai. I dare you. Then for pity’s sake, shut up and grow up. There is a real war on women happening in the world, but it ain’t here in America. You insult and mock the very real suffering of girls and women who truly are under assault by oppressive, inhumane regimes and fanatics.

And don’t you dare compare the Catholic Church to the Taliban. I challenge every one of you to find another entity on the planet that does more every single day to feed, clothe, shelter, give medical care and assistance, to educate, to rescue from harm, to serve the poor and underprivileged, and to fight for the human rights of women and children than the Catholic Church and all Her faithful. Your pathetic rants about the so-called oppression of the Church reveal your dishonesty and ulterior motives. The Church proclaims the dignity and humanity of ALL women, including girls in the womb. You cannot say as much.

Here’s a new portrait for you: I am an American woman well-informed on the issues and I vote. I believe in the sanctity of all human life and I recognize the humanity of the child in the womb. I utterly reject any so-called “right” to kill that child. I reject your harmful contraceptive drugs and devices and I refuse to consider my fertility a disease, nor will I demand anyone else pay for “birth control.”

I understand that freedom requires personal responsibility, not taxpayer subsidy. I’m smart enough to see through the lies and euphemisms and sophistry of the abortion industry and all its political operatives (like you, Cecile, and you, Obama). I know who the champions of women’s rights truly are, and you are not them. I know what freedom really means and what it really costs, and what you’re selling is slavery and death. No thanks. You do not speak for me.

P.S. Hey Whoopi, Joy, and Barbara: I’m waiting for my invitation to come on “The View” and present this view. Waiting…

Caroline Kennedy’s False Witness: Who Will Speak for the Church?

at Catholic Online

There were a lot of bad speeches at the Democratic National Convention, but Caroline Kennedy’s speech was the low point in many ways.

Caroline Kennedy got up on a national stage and used her professed Catholic faith to justify and actually demand the preservation of grave evils that the Church explicitly condemns. She twisted Catholicism into a pretzel to suit her own apostasy. She presented lies for the truth, and tried to justify it with her Catholic faith.

I’ve been hoping to hear some strongly-worded corrections from our stellar priests, bishops, and cardinals since that night, but unless I’ve missed it, so far I’ve seen nothing. Are we wrong to expect a public condemnation of Caroline Kennedy’s words from our church leaders? And by the same token, are we remiss in voicing that public condemnation ourselves?

Ms. Kennedy, I know you grew up Catholic. I know you were raised in the Church. I won’t speculate on the exact nature of your faith, but I can say this for certain: What you professed that night at the DNC was NOT Catholic. You seem to indeed have a very specific creed, but it’s not the creed of the Catholic Church.

Your speech that night was scandalous. There’s no other word for it. It was disgraceful. On the one hand, it made me furious, and on the other hand, it made me feel very sorry for you.

I am furious with you and every other public “Catholic” in this country who makes a mockery of our faith by living in utter contradiction of what the Church teaches while claiming to love the Church, love your faith, and take your faith seriously. You obstinately persist in championing grave and intrinsic evil, while wearing your ashes on your forehead as an empty display of authenticity. You claim to love the Church you persecute and blaspheme at every turn. You claim membership of a Body you despise through your actions.

When you champion the “right” to kill the child in the womb, you despise the Body of Christ. When you champion the “right” to treat the child in the womb as a thing rather than a person, you despise the Christ Child. When you champion the demise of true marriage through its redefinition, you despise the Holy Family. When you champion the demise of the family by casting aside the primacy of mother and fathers in raising children, you despise the Child Jesus. When you champion the proliferation of contraception and require your own Church to violate Her unchangeable teachings about the sanctity and dignity of human life and marital love, you despise the blessed humanity of Christ.

You do not correctly represent the Church when you make such scandalous remarks as you did that night. You may wish to fashion a Catholic Church more to your liking, but you don’t have that authority or ability, thank the Lord.

I pity you that you have not yet encountered the true Faith in which you were brought up. I’m sorry you haven’t yet realized what a treasure you could have. It is rich and beautiful and merciful and miraculous, and you don’t know that. I hope someday you will. In the meantime, I cannot let your remarks or your version of Catholicism stand unchallenged.

You and Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and Kathleen Sebelius and John Kerry and on and on… you do not speak for the Church. You do not serve the Church. You don’t seek to build up the Church but to weaken Her and contradict Her and remake Her in your own image. You make your scandal public so I make my confrontation public as well. I’m tired of all you wolves in sheep’s clothing making yourselves at home in my Church while you work to scatter and devour.

If the Catholic Church is not to your liking, then leave and find a church that is. If the doctrine of the Catholic faith is not palatable to you then go find a doctrine that is. No one’s forcing you to believe or to stay against your will. Be honest for once. You know quite well that your personal doctrine is diametrically opposed to the truth of Church teaching. You know that what you call good the Church rightly calls evil. You know that what you celebrate as progress the Church rightly calls immoral and destructive.

Your facade is pitiful and insulting. I’m sick to death of hearing you embrace evil and call it a “right” that must not be lost. My blood boils when you advocate for evil while waving your little Catholic banner.

So while I’m sitting here waiting for a bishop or other Church leader to publicly renounce your remarks, I started wondering if perhaps they were all waiting for me. And thousands of other Catholic women just like me.

I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, nor am I ashamed of His Body on earth, the Church, and I will gladly profess and live the Truth and the Faith that you spit on with your betrayal. I will fight for the life of the child in the womb, for the sanctity of all human life, and for true marriage between husband and wife for life.

Perhaps our leaders are waiting for Catholic pewsitters to stiffen their spines a little and take a public stand for their faith. We cannot always wait for bishops to sound the charge. Each one of us has the horn in his hand as well. What are we waiting for?

We cannot take for granted that our Church leaders’ words will be enough. Their voice is strong and powerful and irreplaceable, yet it does not give us permission to be mute. Jesus felt pity for the people of His time, calling them “sheep without a shepherd.” Well, you know what? The last few years we have seen leader after leader, bishop after bishop, priest after priest boldly defend the Church and Her teachings as they should; they’ve used their gifts and their words to instruct the faithful and to teach and inspire. Perhaps what we now suffer from is shepherds without sheep.

What would happen if Catholic women across America rejected Caroline Kennedy’s version of “rights” and truths, and instead publicly witnessed to the true doctrine of their Church? What would happen if Catholic women embraced chastity and virtue instead of Planned Parenthood? What would happen if Catholic couples across America rejected the culture of death with all its abortion and contraception and instead gave public witness to the power of life-giving love?

It was not the votes of bishops and cardinals that ushered in the current administration with its ceaseless devotion to abortion and love-affair with Planned Parenthood; contraception; same-sex “marriage”; and assault on Religious freedom. It was the votes of the sheep! If polls are to be believed these days, it seems those sheep have learned nothing at all, and are poised to once again extend their support to the man and the party that glories in killing the child in the womb, along with redefining marriage and elevating homosexual sex to something righteous; and punishing the Catholic Church and the faithful for being Catholic.

Perhaps our leaders are hoarse from screaming at sheep who refuse to listen. Perhaps they’re tired of putting up with phony Catholics and impotent Catholics and cultural Catholics who really couldn’t care less what the Church teaches. Perhaps they’re heartbroken that so many Catholics can’t even be bothered to show up.

Perhaps, like me, they’re also angry that so many Catholics make a mockery of the faith by openly denying what the Church teaches and openly advocating for intrinsic evils. If they are, I admit I’d love to hear them express their outrage more often. I’d love to see public scandal answered publicly and corrected publicly every time.

Whether I get my wish is not the point. The point is, it has always been up to you and me to be salt and light in our culture. It is up to us to speak the truth and live the truth and confront evil in our midst with courage. It’s up to you and me to live an authentic faith. It’s up to you and me to answer Caroline Kennedy and the others and bring their false witness to shame with our own genuine witness.

Caroline Kennedy et al only have the nerve to do what they do because sadly there are a lot of sheep who applaud and march with them. They are lost sheep, all of them. They will not benefit from our timidity or lukewarmness. It’s time to light the fire and you and I are holding the match.

Pray continually for our Church leaders here in America. They need our support and the covering of our prayers. They also need us to take ownership of our faith and act like the militant Church we’re supposed to be. Just as we wait for inspiration from them, so they need some enthusiasm from us. It is a laborious task indeed to lead people who stick their finger in your eye.

Corrupted Women Take the Stage at DNC: Abortion is Not a Woman’s Prize

at Catholic Online

The Democratic National Convention will be featuring their favorite female “stars” this week. Cecile Richards, Nancy Keenan, Sandra Fluke, Kathleen Sebelius, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, and yes, Michelle Obama. They will be used to highlight this administration’s “commitment to women’s rights and health.” They will stand front and center as advocates of the only man who really understands them or cares about their needs. They’ll be hailed by the media as the true American woman.

Well, I can’t tiptoe around the truth. I say with as much kindness as possible that they are corrupt. They are corrupt because they have united themselves with the ultimate corruption and made it their prized possession.

Abortion is nothing new or modern, but only in our modern age has it been elevated to the status of a “right” and sold as a necessary tool of liberation for women. Only we, of all of civilization’s women, have cemented into our law the expectation that women must be allowed to kill their own sons and daughters. We’ve befriended something insidious.

As Blessed Teresa of Calcutta warned us, “If a mother can kill her own baby, what is left but for me to kill you and you to kill me?” There is no further line to be crossed once we have severed what should be the inviolate bond between mother and child. Now there is violence in the sacred space that should be — needs to be — the most protected habitat in the universe.

Go back to the Garden of Eden for a moment. Forget the nonsense of Eve being the “weaker sex”, or more easily deceived. You think that’s why Satan picked her to go after first? I say baloney. Satan is no fool. He did not go after Eve first because he thought she’d be an easy target. She was the chief target, the greatest threat. He wanted to destroy the human person, and the most sure-fire way to achieve that, not just with those first two, but with every human being til the end of time, was to cripple the foundation. Eve was the foundation.

Satan went after the strongest link in the chain of all of humankind — Eve — the mother of all the living. God had given her something He did not give Adam. Only with Eve did He share His glorious ability to create new life. The strength of the human race lies with those who are the life-givers; therefore, the best way to sustain continuous destruction and evil amid the human race is to corrupt the life-givers. Eve’s downfall meant the poisonous seed was planted permanently in the soil from which every other human soul would come.

It was efficient, tidy, genius, and impossible to undo without Divine intervention. Once that was accomplished, Adam was easy. (The Redemption would come through another woman. As the human chain was weakened through Eve, it would be strengthened again through Mary and her humble obedience to God.  The early Church fathers call her the “Second Eve.”)

Now our century has seen women (and as a result the men have followed) turn an act of violence into their “birthright”, if you’ll pardon the irony. With all the inherent force that their life-giving nature endows, modern women have turned the womb into enemy territory, and as a result they’re literally laying waste to the human person.

Abortion corrupts a woman in a way it can never corrupt a man. Men are indeed irrevocably harmed by abortion and by the loss of their children. Men suffer deep and lasting wounds, but in different ways and at a different level than women. Abortion strikes clear to the core of a woman because a woman’s God-given nature is to create, sustain, nurture, and protect new life. Whether a woman ever gives birth is irrelevant. It is still a woman’s essential make-up to bring forth new life into the world. God designed us that way.

When the nature that gives life and creates new life with the help of God turns on herself, comes to despise herself enough to do violence to herself and her own child, the corruption is unleashed.

A Legacy of Death

We are seeing that complete corruption take center stage as the premiere example of what “womanhood” now means in America. The women being presented as models of success, intelligence, talent, and accomplishment are all women who glory in the mass slaughter of babies in the womb. They celebrate the blood of innocent children as proof of their liberation and progress. They demand the continued “freedom” to kill the child in the womb at will, without restriction, without question, and without any moral quandary. Oh, and subsidized by you and me.

They cheerfully embrace with both arms a legacy of death and a continuing promise of more death. They are as blind and corrupt and lost as a woman can be.

Tuesday night HHS Secretary Katheen Sebelius said one thing I have to agree with. She said this November, our choice is “between a nation whose politics play on our worst fears and a nation whose laws reflect the best of our values.”

I’m so sick of the cowardice and dishonesty of people like Sebelius and after tonight, the entire Democrat party. If you’re going to fight for something, then by God, say what it is you’re fighting for. Say it out loud and say it directly. Quit the code-speak. Get up on that stage and say, “The best of our values in America means ensuring that killing a baby in the womb is legal, without restriction, without exception, until the moment of delivery. And it means the taxpayers must pay for this child-killing whether they like it or not.”

Sebelius is right that it really is a choice about what we value in America, and what we defend. Right now, America is a nation that does not defend her most vulnerable citizens. Right now, America is a nation that prides itself on making womb executions “safe, legal, and”… whoops, I forgot — they don’t want them to be “rare” anymore.

Right now America is a nation that dehumanizes the child in the womb in order to destroy that child. Today America is a nation that spends billions of dollars killing tiny babies and celebrates it as enlightened morality. We are a nation where a baby who survives an abortion attempt can still be left to die and even actively killed. Those are Obama’s values. Those are the values of America today, based on our laws.

So get up on that convention stage and admit it. Stop talking about reproductive rights, and choices, and family planning, and women’s health, and stake your abortion claim in plain language. Get up there and admit that the only woman Obama considers legitimate is a woman who thinks it’s a good and necessary thing to kill the child in the womb. Get up there, all of you and admit that the only women in America who should matter at all are the ones who support unfettered abortion on demand at taxpayer expense. I dare you.

You Don’t Speak for Me

It is unspeakably infuriating as a woman to watch Obama and his party of death present the pro-abortion woman as the ideal American woman; as the only acceptable American woman; as the representation of all American women. I’ve got news for you. Your idea of womanhood is utterly repulsive and corrupt. Your idea of freedom and progress for women is utterly grotesque. You do not speak for me, and you certainly do not represent anything that I value.

The current values and laws of America are also repulsive to me. It is shameful that the nation that was birthed on the divine idea that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with the unalienable right to Life is now a nation that greedily devours its own young like the most perverse monster.

Only cowards and tyrants enact laws to permit a helpless child to be killed at will because an adult “chooses.” Only cowards and tyrants hide their violence behind euphemisms and sophistry, and pander to “women’s rights”, cloaked in the rhetoric of “health care.”

Men and women of honor protect their children, born and unborn. Men and women of honor give their lives for their children — they do not take their child’s life for their own. Men and women of honor make sacrifices for their children — they do not make sacrifices of their children.

This election is indeed about choices and about American values. How much longer will America remain a nation that values the “right” to kill the child in the womb? How much longer will America deny the humanity of that child?

We ask, rightly so, how the Holocaust could have happened during WWII. How is it possible that such mass murder could take place, such evil show itself and yet people did nothing to stop it?

How is it that over a million American babies are killed every year and yet not only do we not stop it, we campaign and legislate its protected status as a “right”??

The Official Party of Abortion

Nancy Keenan of NARAL said in her speech that she and her cohorts are proud that the Democratic party believes “women have the right to choose a safe, legal abortion with dignity…” The abortion industry believes there is dignity is tearing a child from the womb. They believe it is dignified to kill a child. That, folks, is the definition of corruption.

Sebelius ended her speech by saying that Obama “is a leader with uncommon compassion and courage…” Yes, this is the man who believes it is an unreasonable burden on a woman’s original decision to have a second physician come and see that the baby who survived the attempt on his/her life is actually cared for and not discarded like trash or finished off. How very compassionate is infanticide!

The new platform embraced by the Democratic party now endorses “safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay.” The values of the Democratic party and Obama mean that baby-killing must be “safe”, legal and paid for using taxpayer dollars. Sick and tyrannical is the government that considers killing a defenseless baby something “safe” and insists on subsidizing the slaughter! This is the America and the “American values” that Obama and his gaggle of corrupt women want to perpetuate and then export around the world.

I asked once before, and I’ll ask again now: Women of virtue, where are you? There is not another second to lose. RISE. The foundation of our society must be rebuilt. Ladies, it starts with us. When the womb and the child within are sacred once again, only then will our nation be restored.

And Then There Were None: Abby Johnson Helps Abortion Workers Leave the Industry

at Catholic Online

As I hung up the phone from talking with Abby Johnson, the founder of And Then There Were None, a ministry she began with her husband to help abortion clinic workers leave the industry, an image came to mind that stung my heart and made me ashamed.

A woman, a known sinner, fell at Jesus’ feet and bathed them with her tears, then dried them with her hair. From her alabaster jar she poured her perfume on the Master’s feet, along with all her regret and shame, sorrow, and love. The men in the room were appalled by her audacity — the nerve of this sinful woman to barge into a Pharisee’s house and touch Jesus!

Yet Jesus made them look at her and witness the greatness of her love. “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven — for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.” Luke 7:44-47

Today that woman works in an abortion clinic. She works for Planned Parenthood, or one of its affiliates. She works in a medical clinic somewhere, and her job every day is to “terminate pregnancies.” She helps spill innocent blood in the name of “choice” and “reproductive rights.” But what if… what if she doesn’t want to anymore? Do you care?

Abby cares, because that was precisely the position she found herself in just a few years ago, when she realized she could no longer work for Planned Parenthood and kill the child in the womb through abortion. She wanted out, and thankfully, she was assisted by people in the pro-life community who were waiting to welcome her and help her leave her job. (If you haven’t read her incredible story, unPlanned, you should.)

Abby knew when she left PP that some day she wanted to help clinic workers, but she didn’t know how that would take shape. She began speaking publicly in the pro-life community, and finished writing unPlanned, giving the country an unflinchingly-honest look inside the abortion industry. When it was released, something interesting happened. Clinic workers started reading it, and 40 Days For Life groups began handing it out.

Abby told me, “I wrote the book because I thought, if I was still a clinic worker and someone like me came out with a book, I’d want to read it as a critic! So I wanted to reach out to clinic workers who would read the book as a critic, and maybe something would strike them as truth.

So that really started to happen, and clinic workers began contacting me, saying ‘I’m feeling the same way you were feeling, can you help me?’ They were feeling trapped with nowhere to go. They felt PP was a big black mark on their record, which it is. PP is the lowest of the low; abortionists are not the greatest physicians. It’s like if one day you wanted to become a respected dog breeder but you had on your record that you used to work in a puppy mill, you’d have a hard time.

These workers feel stuck, like they can’t leave. A lot of them are single mothers, and they can’t just leave their job on a leap of faith.

I knew how lucky I was to have so much support when I left PP, and how scary it is for workers who want to leave but have no one to help them. I thought, after 40 years of abortion in this country, surely there are groups out there to help clinic workers. Surely there are other organizations doing this, and I wanted to find them and join forces. I didn’t want to reinvent the wheel. I was stunned to learn that there was no one at all reaching out to clinic workers. No one.

So my husband and I began helping them ourselves. On our own we helped them financially, emotionally, and spiritually. In short order, we’d helped 17 clinic workers make the transition out of the abortion industry. I was motivated, and I knew I had to get something official going. Nobody was reaching out to these workers — they came to me. I knew that had to change.”

And so, And Then There Were None was born.

Thinking that original crop of 17 workers was a fluke and they’d probably never see numbers like that again, Abby and her friend, Jennie Stone, set out to create a yearly budget for their new ministry. They thought a liberal estimate would be 10 workers over the next year, and they figured that would be a miracle. Since the official launch this past June, they have already helped 13 more workers leave. So far, a total of 30 clinic workers have left the abortion industry.

With this new ministry, Abby is challenging the pro-life community in America, and even exposing their failure of love.

“Something that has always struck me when I go out to clinics, and I watch the women who come out who’ve had an abortion. I’ll see the sidewalk counselors reach out to them, and I see the compassion on their faces and I hear the compassion in their words, and it’s fantastic. It’s so wonderful to see that. They extend such love to those hurting women.

But then I see clinic workers come out, and that compassion just evaporates. And it’s wrong. 70% of clinic workers have had abortions themselves. They are in need of healing just as much, if not more, than the women who come to that clinic. No one grows up wanting to work in an abortion clinic. It’s a series of heartbreaking, regretful, painful choices that lead them there. We don’t see it because they show their hurt with anger — they yell at us and curse at us because they are hurt. Yet our compassion is somehow diminished toward them.

I want people to know this community of clinic workers have not been embraced by the pro-life community, yet they could literally be the demise of the abortion industry! There are 4 major pending lawsuits against PP, for billions of dollars, all brought by former PP employees. If these suits are successful, God-willing, these large affiliates could shut down. This could be a domino effect. This could be the beginning of the end!

These workers coming forward with information we would not have any other way. The beauty of this is these are real people with real stories of real clients and real things happening that can be brought to court and prosecuted. These clinics really can be shut down because of it. This is what the pro-life movement has been missing for 40 years.

We’ve been missing it because abortion workers are seen as lepers, people we don’t want to touch. But God is able to do His best work in those who have received the most forgiveness. He is doing amazing work through these former workers. It takes a lot of courage on their part, because they aren’t accepted by the pro-life movement. It’s not an easy road they face when they go public. They do it because they’ve seen what abortion really is and they’ve seen their part in it. They feel they have to right the wrong they’ve done.”

Abby sees the great need for healing for those who leave the abortion industry, and that is central to the mission of ATTWN. “Recovery is key for us. I know firsthand the trauma these workers have to deal with after leaving a job like that. They’ll never feel the burden is completely gone, but we want to help the lift part of the burden and heal. Honestly, the burden I feel is what motivates me to continue in this fight. So I’m thankful for the burden I’m left with.”

Spiritual healing is a major component, and I was floored when Abby told me that most of the workers who have come to her for help are Catholic. Talk about a wake-up call for the Church!

She told me of a conversation she had with a priest at a conference recently when she insisted that our priests need to be talking about abortion from the pulpit every week, and that the sanctity of human life needs to be mentioned in the Prayers of the Faithful every week. This priest said, “C’mon, Abby, how often do we really need to include abortion in our homilies?” She replied, “Well, we’d often have women come in for an abortion and lay on the table with a rosary in their hands. I had two employees in my clinic who would help perform abortions on Saturday and be at Mass on Sunday receiving the Eucharist. You tell me, how often do you think we need to talk about abortion?”

They’ve produced a flyer describing the ministry and the help they can offer, and they want to see that flyer in the hands of every pro-life group who’s out in front of a clinic. They want to see that flyer handed out to clinic workers all over the country. (The flyer can be printed from their website.)

ATTWN’s goal for this year is to become financially stable, and provide a good healing program for every clinic worker they can help. To do that, they need our financial support. This isn’t a ministry that needs volunteers right now as much as they need monthly partners. There is no overhead, and Abby draws no salary. Every cent given to ATTWN directly assists clinic workers who want to leave. (They don’t receive assistance until they’ve actually left the industry.)

Individuals and businesses can partner with ATTWN on a regular monthly basis, and companies that would match donations are also welcome and needed. (At this time, the application for 501c3 is pending. Upon approval, donations will be tax-exempt.)

Last but not least, Abby wants our help spreading the word. This life-changing miracle is happening by word-of-mouth, and personal contact. But the potential to cripple the abortion industry is unmatched. And Planned Parenthood knows it. Abby and Jennie know PP is very angry about what they’re doing. They also know that God is with them, and they trust in His hand of protection on their growing outreach.

I have to admit that prior to learning about ATTWN and hearing Abby’s story, the abortion clinic worker was not tops on my list of people to care about. It’s easy to villainize and condemn; it’s hard to show compassion and love. And Then There Were None is a bold challenge to the Body of Christ to realize the clinic worker is not our enemy. She’s just like us — a sinner in need of forgiveness and hungry for love. Those who are forgiven much, love much.

President Obama Makes Video Vowing to Protect Planned Parenthood

at Catholic Online

With the lovely backdrop of the red room at the White House behind him, President Obama made a video of encouragement to Planned Parenthood supporters in America, pledging his continued and unwavering support for the abortion giant.

A sitting President went out of his way to publicly vow to protect the interests of America’s largest abortion provider and ensure their federal funding is not discontinued. He publicly declared his commitment to standing between PP and Congress, between PP and the American people, to preserve the hundreds of millions of tax dollars PP gets each year. He and Cecile Richards are so tight not a ray of sunlight can come between them.

Since Mr. Obama is so fond of clarity, let’s be clear; let’s be very clear, indeed. In fact, let’s take it line by line.

He begins by saying, “For you and for most Americans, women’s health is an issue that stands above politics. Yet over the past year you’ve had to stand up to politicians who want to deny millions of women the care they rely on and inject themselves into decisions that are best made between a woman and her doctor.”

Let’s clear up the euphemisms first: Abortion is not health care. It is the intentional killing of a helpless preborn child. That is really what we’re talking about here. We’re not talking about “decisions” regarding breast cancer or cervical or ovarian cancer, etc. We’re talking about abortion. The President is talking about abortion.

He continues, “Let’s be clear here; women are not an interest group.”

Oh, I beg to differ. Women are most definitely his favorite interest group. He plays “women’s interests” like a violin when he needs to rally support, the way he’s done this year with his contrived, politically-motivated “war on women” over contraception.

“They’re mothers and daughters, sisters, and wives. They’re half of this country and they’re perfectly capable of making their own choices about their health.”

Again, let’s be clear. The “choice” he’s talking about is abortion. Not whether to get a Pap smear or a breast exam or a blood test. The “choice” is whether or not to kill the child in the womb. I wonder why Obama’s so reluctant to be clear in his language?

“So we’re grateful that through it all you never forget who you’re fighting for. The woman with a new lease on life because a mammogram caught her cancer in time…”

Once more, for the record: No Planned Parenthood clinic in the country can provide a woman a mammogram. That is a deceptive lie that Cecile Richards and now Barack Obama love to perpetuate. Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms and they never have. They are merely a referral service to send women elsewhere for a mammogram.

Since that “new lease on life” is so important to you, Mr. Obama, may I suggest the many fine Catholic hospitals across America where women can actually receive comprehensive medical care that includes mammograms. If it’s care for poor and uninsured women you’re concerned about, you should be championing Catholic health care providers instead of attacking them.

From the Fiscal Times:
“Compared to their competition, Catholic hospitals take a leading role in providing less-profitable services to patients. They lead the sector in breast cancer screenings, nutrition programs, trauma, geriatric services, and social work. In most of these areas, other non-profits come close, but hospitals run by state and local governments fall significantly off the pace. Where patients have trouble paying for care, Catholic hospitals cover more of the costs. For instance, Catholic Health Services in Florida provides free care to families below 200 percent of federal poverty line, accepting Medicaid reimbursements as payment in full, and caps costs at 20 percent of household income for families that fall between 200 percent and 400 percent of the federal poverty line.”

“… the woman who was able to choose when to start a family because she could afford contraception.”
Ah yes, Mr. Obama, your concocted battle over contraception. To secure votes for yourself and further Planned Parenthood’s agenda, you fabricated this ludicrous controversy over contraception as though it were hard to find, difficult to obtain, and financially out of reach to every women not earning six figures a year. It’s the most dishonest and destructive political ploy ever foisted on the public by a sitting President, and you’ve used women to do it.

You’ve exploited your favorite interest group to effectively threaten the real providers of genuine health care to millions of people — the Catholic Church — in order to prop up the illusion that America’s abortion giant is a benevolent rescuer of poor women whom no one else will serve. Catholic hospitals and clinics wait with open arms to welcome all women and meet their health care needs. But you would rather dictate that Catholics must violate their own sacred teaching; you’d rather assault Religious freedom and require Catholic institutions to bow at your altar or else. Whose interests are you serving here? Let’s be clear.

Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood are targeting our kids. The ones they don’t kill in the womb they’ll rely on later to become new and repeat clients, and that means “educating” our children about sex, Planned Parenthood-style. Their see our kids as primarily “sexual beings” rather than human beings with a holy sexuality. Their vision of sexuality has no room for chastity, purity, abstinence, or respect for human life. At the heart of their “sex-education” agenda is promiscuity, contraception, and abortion.

NJ.com reports that while speaking to a Princeton audience recently, Cecile Richards said, “We know sex education works, the problem is we’re not in enough classrooms. In the last couple of years, Planned Parenthood has become a living digital laboratory.” Planned Parenthood uses Facebook, Twitter and text messaging to deliver sex education to young people without having to get it through the Legislature. “Technology has the power to connect people, to get our message out and drive social change,” said Richards.”

Planned Parenthood’s message is that our children are “sexual beings” who must be taught to explore their sexuality and enjoy unrestricted sex whenever, with whomever they choose, armed with only some latex and pills to “protect” them, and abortion to safeguard their “freedom.”

Obama goes on to say, “When some professional politicians casually say that they’ll get rid of Planned Parenthood, don’t forget what they’re really talking about. Eliminating the funding that millions of women rely on and leaving them to fend for themselves.”

Yes, let’s do remember what we’re really talking about here. We’re talking about hundreds of millions of dollars every year being given to an industry that exists to kill the child in the womb. Let’s stop pretending that those tax dollars are not subsidizing abortion. Let’s be clear: if PP could not abort babies they would close their doors tomorrow. It is the abortion peddlers who should be left to fend for themselves. Those Catholic hospitals you’re threatening with your mandates, Mr. Obama — the ones leading in breast cancer screenings, for instance — would gladly care for women and their babies.

He concludes with this promise: “I know Planned Parenthood will never stop fighting to protect the health care and choices America’s women deserve. As long as I have the privilege of being your President, neither will I.”

One last time: abortion is not health care. Fertility is not a disease. Pregnancy is not an illness. Contraception is not an entitlement others must be forced to pay for. The natural ability of a woman’s body is not a defect that needs to be fixed. What women deserve is to not have their bodies “treated” with artificial hormones and chemicals. What women deserve is for the amazing gift of life-giving to be respected and honored, both by their doctors and by the men in their lives. Women deserve far, far better than abortion. The women still growing in the womb deserve to be protected, not killed.

Our current President has made his position crystal clear and has demonstrated time and time again that he will always defend Planned Parenthood; he will always defend abortion-on-demand, without restriction; he will always promote the culture of death. He will even go to such anti-American lengths as to shred the constitutional rights of the Catholic Church and all people of faith.

There’s no “war on women.” There’s no battle over the availability of contraception. There’s a genuine war on Religious freedom, and a genuine battle for liberty, both being waged by Obama.

There’s no ambiguity here. No wiggle-room at all for anyone to be uncertain as to Obama’s intentions and priorities.

There is only one question: Will we re-elect a man who walks in lock-step with the anti-life agenda of Planned Parenthood and allow our constitutional right to Religious freedom to be eradicated?

I Choose No Contraception, so Why am I Paying for It?

at Catholic Online

So I picked up my thyroid medication this month as usual, and as usual, I paid about $25 for it. My insurance doesn’t cover the cost so it’s all on me. No big deal. Many folks have to pay a lot more for the medicine they need, so I’m not complaining.

But in light of President Obama’s horrendous contraception mandate I have to ask: Why must contraception be free? Why is contraception so special?

My thyroid medication isn’t free, nor is the medication I take to treat rheumatoid arthritis. Last I heard, people weren’t getting their heart medication for free, nor were medicines for cancer being given out free of charge. Last time my kid had an ear infection or strep throat, I didn’t get the antibiotic and cough syrup for free. The long line at the pharmacy is full of folks paying for prescriptions they need to stay healthy or prevent future serious illness.

These medicines are treating actual diseases; real illnesses. Fertility is not a disease. Pregnancy is not a disease or an illness. Women do not need the Pill. In fact, the laundry list of health risks and problems caused by artificial hormones is extensive, so it’s not even accurate to say that the Pill is good for women. (Or the rest of the world if you consider the hormones being passed into our soil and water, etc., but that’s another story.)

This mandate doesn’t even jive with the feminist doctrine that it’s “a woman’s right to choose.” Isn’t that what’s been beaten into our heads for 40 years? Isn’t that the applause line the politicians throw out like candy to women? That “a woman’s right to choose” is sacrosanct and inviolate?

Well, if that’s true, then why must I be required to pay for other women’s choices? I choose not to have anything to do with contraception. That’s my choice. I don’t need it, don’t want it, and don’t think it’s healthy or moral. If Jane wants to take the Pill or use the patch or an IUD or whatever else, fine, she can have it. But it’s her choice so she can pay for it herself. She has no right to expect free pills and patches. Taking a note from both Catholic doctrine and military philosophy, Freedom Isn’t Free. If Jane wants to be free to choose, then she must accept responsibility for her choices. Why does her personal, private choice regarding “her body” get to require my participation and demand my resources?

Why does “choice” go out the window when it comes to contraception? Because where sex and babies are concerned, “choice” is a facade. It’s a laughable misnomer at best. Decades of treating our babies like parasites and unwanted intruders and blobs of cells that we can eliminate at will has left us with an ingrained animosity towards female fertility, pregnancy, and babies. As a society we have come to see the natural gifts of the female body and the miraculous gift of new life as a threat to our freedom, our happiness, and our prosperity. The concept of women’s health care has become so lopsided and warped that it only seems to be defined as preventing pregnancy and killing fetuses.

Smell the hypocrisy? Out of one side of their mouths, the pro-abortion community is demanding free contraceptives, abortion pills, and sterilization procedures be provided to everyone, even by government mandate. Out of the other side of their mouths these same people say the government has no business telling a woman what she can or cannot do with her body. It’s no longer simply “My Body, My Choice.” Now it’s “My Body, My Choice = My Contraception, Your Cost, No Choice for You.” (Apparently the government doesn’t have to stay out of your bedroom if they’re giving you free birth control and abortifacient pills.)

Let’s cut the bull: this “free” contraception will not be free. Drug companies will not begin manufacturing and giving the Pill away for nothing. The insurance companies will not benevolently absorb the cost. They will pass the cost on to their paying customers — individuals and employers — even if those paying customers are not asking for contraception or in fact, are morally opposed to contraception.

Planned Parenthood says that the birth control pill costs between $15 and $50 dollars per month depending on the specific pill and the insurance coverage. One has to wonder, if unlimited access to free birth control is so important to PP and women’s health care, why haven’t they been giving the stuff away themselves all these years? One has to wonder, just what is all that Title X “family planning” money being spent on, if it’s not supplying women with birth control?

Indeed, far from giving it away, PP has enjoyed steady profits from selling contraceptive pills to all those needy women they care so much about. Recall the suit against Planned Parenthood in Los Angeles in 2008 in which a former PP official alleged massive fraud related to overcharging for birth control pills. While other public medical facilities billed the state for between $8 and $9 dollars per cycle of pills, Planned Parenthood billed the state $12 dollars, which was several times more than what PP paid for the drugs originally. The whistleblower estimated that PP overcharged the state of California by hundreds of millions of dollars.

Planned Parenthood actually complained to CA state senator Hannah-Beth Jackson that unless they were permitted to charge more for the pills, they would suffer financial problems so severe that it would threaten their survival. So Jackson sponsored legislation to allow Planned Parenthood to charge more for birth control pills going forward. Special treatment for PP, anyone? Even amid charges of fraud to the tune of $180 million dollars, PP is protected and placated at every turn by our government, all in the name of “women’s health care.”

So according to PP’s own statement, we know they just can’t survive without the revenue from the sale (and overcharging) of contraception. And Obama’s mandate says that women simply must not have to pay a penny for contraception any longer. Well, somebody somewhere is going to pay! What in the world makes anyone believe that suddenly insurers will generously take the burden of cost upon themselves?

So many things about this mandate trouble me: the trampling of our Constitutional right to religious freedom; the overreach of the Federal Government into the marketplace and people’s lives; the audacity of a President who believes he can hand down edicts from on high requiring citizens to buy whatever he says they must; the tyranny of a President who demands that an entire religion of people violate their faith and conscience and bow to him rather than God.

But something else troubles me greatly — the cementing into our society by means of government mandate this animosity towards pregnancy, childbirth, babies, and women who do not subscribe to the dictates of modern “feminism.” From the top-down, our Federal government is creating a medical system in which fertility will be seen as a disease, a liability, and something to be tightly-controlled. No longer will pregnancy be welcomed (in fact, many insurers already don’t welcome pregnancy and maternity coverage), but it will become actively discouraged and even punished by medical insurers and physicians who don’t want to risk the cost and involvement. It’ll be so much easier and cheaper just to hand out contraception, abortifacients, and sterilize people.

Caring for a pregnant woman is expensive. Caring for children is even more expensive. Preventing their existence is cheap. Destroying them in the womb is a money-saving act in the long run. This kind of thinking is what this mandate is really all about. This kind of thinking is both the seed and the fruit of the culture of death. This kind of thinking will kill us.
