"But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived." 2 Timothy 3:13
This is a most difficult topic to write about largely because of the severity and enormity of the problem, and the willful neglect and ignorance of most Americans. There is great deception all around us and most people do not see it or understand it. The most obvious evidence of this deception is the slaughter of 4000 children per day. Few Americans care about this holocaust; fewer still look behind the scenes to see the actors, directors, and stage men managing this production. Like watching a Hollywood movie, they see only the show and not those handling the set. People are upset when we reveal the truth, but this is what our unpopular newsletter is about. Pro-life leaders from around the country were recently invited to participate in a confidential project to air their concerns and opinions about the problems within the pro-life movement. Our goal was to form a strategy to end aborticide. Few of the big ministries bothered to participate. Twenty seven leaders who did participate wrote essays. Writing an essay gave me pause to reflect on what we are doing. Reading the essays of others gave me insight into what they are doing and their reasons for doing it.
Why has the pro-life movement failed to end aborticide? The answers might surprise you.
The pro-life movement has no vision to end baby-murder.
"Where there is no vision the babies perish" Proverbs 29:18
Very few pro-life organizations operate or consistently operate, from a biblical world-view. Unbiblical world-views are in error both in word and in deed. Their authority usually lies in American Jurisprudence. Their goal is to get the U.S. Supreme Court to somehow repent, and turn back the clock to 1972.
An unbiblical pro-life ethic supports the aborting mother, rather than the pre-born. They are two separate individuals. There is certainly a conflict of interest between an aborting mother and her unborn child.
Those who allow exceptions have an unbiblical world-view. Life of the mother exceptions dehumanizes baby. Should we accept rape, incest, fetal deformity, life of the mother exceptions to deny life to post-born children? If we allow a separate standard for Pre-born children are we not admitting that the pre-born are somehow worth less than post-born children? If pre-born children are worth less than post-born children, they must be somehow inferior or subhuman. If the pre-born child is not fully human, than a mother does have a right to an abortion!
Pro-lifers are loathed to blame the aborting mother for killing her child; they would rather treat her as a victim. How can we call abortion murder if the mother is a victim? Aborticide should be punished as any other murder.
National Right-to Life
National Right to Life (NRTL) is a shill for the Republican Party. In Almost every election they consistently support the most winnable Republican candidates over less viable pro-life candidates. I could give many examples of this; I shall mention but two which should be familiar to all. NRTL supported GH Bush and GW Bush over Howard Phillips and Michael Peroutka. On a state level I could mention many more. Should we support anyone who would enable the death of even one child?
The Republican Party is not motivated to end baby-murder. If the Republican Party were to end aborticide they would lose their financial support and their control of the pro-life movement. Thanks to the ongoing treachery of NRTL no candidate running for office will seriously try to end abortion.
"The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil" 1 Timothy 6:10
NRTL state chapters rake in hundreds of millions dollars annually in conscience money, they pay their directors handsomely. They have no motivation to end abortion.
Smaller pro-life organizations
Those organizations not motivated strictly by money often have other agendas apart from Christ and the babies. They are like pastors that refuse to work with people outside their church in getting others saved. Their church is their kingdom. They fight to keep others from infringing on their little piece of the action.
An extreme example of this is Dan and Angela Michaels of "Small Victories." The Michaels are notorious for attacking pro-life picketers at the Granite City death camp (Hope Clinic) While the Michaels focus their physical and verbal attacks on picketers, the babies are neglected, and the devil laughs. The Michaels make fantastic claims of success in their ministry, but those who frequent this clinic remain doubtful. The Michaels picket pro-life churches that do not support them. Those who have been targeted by the Michaels know that I am understating the gravity of this situation.
Troy Newman is being sued by Randall Terry for using the Operation Rescue (OR) name.
In 1991, after cutting a deal with the feds, Randall Terry quit OR giving its control to Keith Tucci. Tucci later resigned and passed its leadership to Flip Benham. Because of the threat of lawsuits, Benham changed the name to Operation Save America. The OR name was abandoned by everyone except Troy Newman. Newman continued to build on the name, now Terry wants it back.
I know you don't want to read this stuff. It is like sausage making, we do not want to look too close. We want to enjoy ourselves; we desire to be happy and cheerful. We like a rosy picture, a positive spin on a story, but we have been putting fresh paint on a decaying structure. Sooner or later we have to tear it down.
501 (c) 3's
A corporation is a legal body created by the state. Most American churches and religious denominations are 501 (c) 3 corporations. Because they are creatures of the state they agree to abide by state rule.
What the state creates the state rules, what the state rules the state controls.
Pro-life organizations which are 501 (c) 3's are also creatures of the state.
The state controls the ebb and flow of money corporations receive. The state limits the activities and political endorsements of corporations. All corporations ultimately answer to the state.
We cannot serve two masters. We must either serve Jesus Christ and the pre-born, or we must serve the state.
Are we not in a conflict? Is the world our friend? Is it possible for the state to be fair and impartial with baby defenders while permitting, protecting, and promoting baby-murder with our tax money? Is this not a conflict of interest? Pro-life corporations are in collusion with the state by virtue of their very existence!
Pro-life organizations have championed fruitless legal action in the very courts that deny the humanity of the pre-born. Half measures such as informed consent, parental consent, and fetal pain awareness tug at the leaves of the Tree of Death, making no attempt to tear out its roots. There continues to be resistance by pro-lifers in restoring the full rights, privileges, and protection to the pre-born child same as for post-born children. The only effort to recognize the humanity of the pre-born is the Colorado ballot initiative.
Ballot initiatives in up to 10 states including Michigan, Montana, and Georgia failed for lack of support or by sabotage. Citing bad timing, bad language (i.e. no exceptions), and purported flaws in those presenting it, Roman Catholic Bishops in every state opposed both ballot initiatives and legislation which recognize the personhood of the pre-born. Focus on the Family and its state affiliates also opposed these initiatives. Catholic Bishops in Colorado did not oppose the personhood initiative; they also did not support it. The duplicity of churches and organizations fool many into thinking that right actions will follow right declarations of truth. Jesus said: "You shall know them by their fruits." Matthew 7: 16 & 20 Duplicity says one thing but does another.
"A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go, work today in my vineyard.' He answered and said, 'I will not,' but afterward he regretted it and went. Then he came to the second and said likewise. And he answered and said, 'I go, sir,' but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said to Him, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you." Matthew 21:28-31
Another disheartening aspect of this fight is the collusion of "pro-life Christians" with the abortion industry. According to Alan Guttmacher, Planned Parenthood's research arm, 70% of all abortions are performed on those who profess to be Christian.
Those of us who witness at the clinics see many abortion appointments with rosaries dangling from the rear-view mirror, Bibles on the dashboard, or Christian bumper stickers on their vehicles. Many pastors and religious workers bring in appointments for an abortion. Some of them bring their own children! They treat the blood of Jesus Christ as a license to sin. They believe God will forgive them no matter what they do. We are often viciously assaulted by "pro-life Christians" for showing the bloody reality of abortion.
On June 26, 2008, at the Fort Madison PP, I was assaulted by Devin Eaves. With the help of lying neighbors and angry Health Dept. workers I was arrested for Disorderly Conduct.
Devin Eaves had contacted us earlier by e-mail offering to help us so she might learn Donna's picketing schedule. She had spent hours harassing Donna while cozying up to Planned Parenthood supporters. Donna called me to the clinic to get video of her harassment. Devin came over to where I was standing and hit me with her sign breaking my camera. Devin sells expensive baby dolls on e-bay under the name "Midwest Miracles". Her string of profanity was revealing; she is not anti-abortion as she claims, nor is she a follower of Jesus Christ. She says she is pro-life, but her works contradict her. The naive will take her at her word.
The standard for being pro-life is so low that even George Bush qualifies.
We often have people complain to us about our activities and signs. They usually begin their complaint by saying "I am pro-life but...." We call them "pro-life butts."
Lawyers are among the predatory class of society. Though some are sympathetic "to OUR cause," and have defended us in the past, they are officers of the courts which refuse to recognize the humanity of the pre-born. In open court, lawyers cannot mention the humanity of the pre-born this is our only true defense.
Christian legal organizations such as Thomas Moore, Alliance Defense Fund, American Center for Law & Justice, and American Family Association (AFA) have helped individuals in the past. It is expensive, time consuming, and often futile as the courts are increasingly unjust. AFA dissolved its legal defense arm early this year. The rest are taking easy t-shirt, and praying around the flag pole cases, turning down many who are being beat up with unconstitutional municipal ordinances such as sign sizes, and preaching permits.
The medical profession is irrevocably corrupt. The American Medical Association (AMA) and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecologists (ACOG) are greatly influenced by the moneyed men representing drug companies, and special interests groups such as Planned Parenthood. AMA and ACOG policies and medical protocols are aimed at enriching doctors. The course of recommended treatment is often detrimental to the physical, mental, emotional, psychological, and spiritual well being of their patients.
It is never in the best interest of the mother to kill her baby.
Those who did the ballot initiative petitioning experienced 1st hand just how unwilling most Americans are to outlaw baby-murder. Most Americans view child sacrifice as a Constitutional Right! Many who say "abortion is murder" believe it should be legal, they believe it is a woman's choice! God commands "Thou shall not murder", abortion is, was, and always will be murder. We do not change reality by conveniently changing the law.
Americans have brought up their children to believe that child sacrifice is normal. We see many children attending government schools who defend baby-murder.
The state of Iowa has experienced its worst flood in recorded history. Thousands of homes, businesses, and buildings are destroyed! The damage is in the billions of dollars
California recently allowed same-sex marriage. At the time of this writing California is fighting over 1400 fires.
Some people recognize God's judgment upon our nation, most people ridicule this notion.
We find hearts hard and cold as did Jeremiah the prophet in the days of ancient Israel.
When I was an atheist, a rebel in the army, my 1st Sergeant had a cartoon on his locker. It was a caricature of a man sinking in quicksand out of sight except for one hand with middle finger extended in the air. The caption on the cartoon read "That's Holman, bitter to the end."
My heart has since grown tender toward the things of God. I cheerfully submit to His sovereign will. I have a sweet bitterness in my heart toward our nation. I keep looking for repentance but I do not see so much as "a cloud as small as a man's hand coming from the sea." 1 Kings 18:44
Jeremiah bore little fruit from his preaching. He warned the people of Israel for over 40 years repent or perish. Like my Sergeant's caricature, Israel was bitter to the very end. Most remained hard-hearted even in captivity.
The Bible is timeless in its instruction. Human nature is unchanged. The American dream, like Greece and Rome, shall end up on the ash heap of history. I expect very few of our generation shall escape the fires of hell.
Because of head knowledge, many fancy themselves saved. On the Great Day of Judgment they shall say:
'Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?' And then I will declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!' "Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock. But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall."
May you be found with Him on the Day of His appearing. So prays
