“Contraception” is Murder, a weak, pathetic response to legal murder, is sent out at least once a month. If the gestapo hasn’t jailed you yet for defending the innocent realistically, you either have to tell me you want it or go to the website. Emails are free but snail-mail is free only for PFCs. Five grand for others.
Because I believe we should examine every legitimate means, including force, in our attempt to protect innocent people from being tortured to death, I want to hear from folks who’ve been forceful and from those who defend them. I’d also like to hear from those who oppose the prolife use of force and call it violence.

In section 2 of a recent writing, Terry Hughes proved that Barnard Nathanson was right when he said, “Abortion will remain legal as long as the Catholic Church allows it to.”
Here in section 3 Terry examines why the Church is falling apart and he begins by looking at his own diocese in Rapid City, South Dakota, overseen by Bishop Robert D. Gruss:
This is why [to find out why the Church is falling apart] Bishop Gruss thinks writing Through Him, With Him, and In Him was necessary. But nowhere in his book is this reason stated in clear, concrete words. The babies "being dragged to the slaughter" aren't mentioned. They don't exist. Show me one place in the book where their plight is recorded.
What is recorded? The only specific--specific--thing recorded is the "need" for Catholics in the Rapid City Diocese to cough up money to build a multi-million dollar "new chancery building" and to fund "future growth on the Terra Sancta campus" in Rapid City (Chapter 11, page 99). Bricks and mortar in Rapid City count more than bodies and souls of unborn babies in the diocese. Bricks and mortar are mentioned. Babies being murdered by the scores of millions aren't.
Also mentioned is funding an "Office of Social Justice with paid staff" (Chapter 12, page 119). For what purpose? For "promoting respect for all human life...for economic justice...for promotion of the common good...for good stewardship of God's creation" blah, blah, blah. No word about saving--saving-human beings-babies--from death by torture, only "respecting" human life. That can mean respecting a woman's right to "choose" abortion, thereby respecting her life, respecting parents' right to "choose" euthanasia for a handicapped child, a doctor's right to "choose" death for a "terminally ill" patient, the government's right to "terminate" unproductive elderly citizens who no longer pay taxes.
That's what the Democrat Party means by Social Justice. Chancery Social Justice offices all over America are staffed by pro-abortion pro-sodomy Democrats on salary. Very rarely will a Republican be found in those offices, and the few who are are pro-abortion. This whole section of Bishop Gruss' book strikes me as a plan to advance the Culture of Death, if not by him, by his successors, as did his predecessor, Bishop Blase Cupich (now Archbishop of Chicago, a high-visibility promotion).
Cupich refused to put an announcement for the annual convention of South Dakota Right to Life in West River Catholic, his diocesan newspaper, he refused to support Bishop John D'Arcy in opposing honoring Barack Obama at Notre Dame, and as Bishop of Spokane he ordered his priests to not participate in Forty Days For Life which employs prayer and fasting to end abortion nationwide. Now he’s “Cardinal” Cupich, his reward from Pope Francis for opposing prayer and fasting to end aborting the next generation of Americans. Francis decreed 2016 a Year Of Mercy. That’s “mercy”?
I asked Father Ron Garry why Bishop Gruss needed all this new bricks-and-mortar construction just a few years after the diocese purchased Terra Sancta from an order of nuns that was dying for lack of vocations. He told me it was a long drive from the present chancery at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Cathedral to Terra Sancta. "How long?" I asked. "About fifteen minutes" Father Ron replied. I said, "So Catholics in the Rapid City Diocese are expected to cough up millions of dollars to spare Bishop Gruss a fifteen-minute drive? Doesn't he have a chauffeur to do the driving? Why can't chancery offices be located at Terra Sancta?”
When the British Empire was collapsing, the Admiralty that had sustained the empire expanded its offices several-fold in London. As the Catholic Church in America is collapsing it engages in a massive bricks-and-mortar building program that will drive more Catholics out of the Church. Nearly a third of Catholics in the Rapid City Diocese are on the Sioux Reservations. They are dirt poor. Why can’t the “bricks-and-mortar” money be used to provide jobs on the reservations? For example, establishing a company that assembles electronic parts for high-tech industries. Such work uses brains, not bricks; minds, not mortar.
Most of the remaining Catholics live from one paycheck to the next, not knowing if there will be a next. I told Father Garry our bishop can't keep going to Karl and Bill Fischer here in Fort Pierre to finance his brick-and-mortar projects. Rebuilding the Church and nurturing vocations has to be done in each parish and each family, not in new brick-and-mortar buildings and offices staffed by pro-abortion Democrats in Rapid City.
Need proof? Tim Kaine got a standing ovation from his priest and parishioners at Mass when he appeared the Sunday after he became Hillary--Hitlery--Clinton's running mate and had abandoned his pro-life "convictions" to embrace her murderous pro-abortion and anti-Catholic agenda that includes forcing Catholics to pay for all abortions nationwide right up to the day of birth--abortions that would target babies of inner-city African-Americans.
Planned Parenthood operates 79 percent of its Abortion Auschwitzes in inner-city Black neighborhoods, now expanding into Hispanic neighborhoods. But Kaine remained "personally opposed" to abortion so he receives Our Lord in Holy Communion. Kaine boasted at the Vice-Presidential debate last night (4 October 2016) that he was a Jesuit-educated faithful Irish Catholic and he supports abortions even at the moment of birth, all abortions, all funded by taxes extracted by force from Catholics. He got a standing ovation in his Catholic parish church.
Why have all these Irish Catholic politicians and clergy become so militantly pro-abortion and anti-Catholic? Their names are like the Irish roll-call in the Tin Pan Alley song, MacNamera's Band. In my lifetime, the Irish ruled the Church coast-to-coast from Boston Cardinal Archbishop Bernard Law (called Cardinal Outlaw by Alan Keyes), to St. Paul/Minneapolis Archbishop Harry "flimflam" Flynn, to Los Angeles Cardinal Archbishop Roger "phony baloney" Mahony, and on and on. Why this loyalty within the Catholic Church in America to the Democrat Party, a bond so strong that many (most?) bishops, priests, and laity are Democrats first and Catholics last? Money. Money gained through an iron bond with the Democrat Party all over America except in the Deep South where few Catholics live. Taxpayer money given in exchange for giving Holy Communion to Democrat politicians who demand taxpayer funding of abortion. (tbc)
Rev. Don Spitz:
I finally made the Big Time. Someone made a donation to babykilling Planned Parenthood in my name. Now they can be defunded!
Cecile Richards sends me her warmest regards. That’s nice:
Dear Donald Spitz,
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is pleased to let you know that a generous and thoughtful contribution has been made in your honor by:
1571 Westmoreland Street
McLean, VA 22101-4444
We also send our warmest regards.
Sincerely, Cecile Richards,, President, PPFA
Someone I know thinks this is a great idea and he’s sending a generous and thoughtful contribution to each Prisoner for Christ in honor of Cecile. God bless her.
Of course I will pass along the good news to her as each gift is sent.
Now here’s an interesting exchange:
John, who are you, and why am I on your e-mail list? What is CIM? Thank you, Karin
Hi Karin, I'm a pro-lifer. I don't know why you're on the list. My computer might add addresses on any received emails automatically because I notice the list does keep growing.
CIM stands for "Contraception" is Murder. Some devices like IUD's that people think stop a life from coming into existence actually stop a life that's already begun. John
Ok, thanks John, I've often wondered who you are. That was an interesting article you sent. Interesting how the Dem's are so blind and stick to their stories, and how it all began. Yes, most people are ignorant. God bless you, Karin
Eric Rudolph’s White Lies continues from May:
The Negro Project was a piece of left-wing social engineering. It was certainly elitist, but not racist. The project’s utilitarian motives are spelled out in its proposal: “Birth control, per se, cannot correct economic conditions that result in bad housing, overcrowding, poor hygiene, malnutrition, and neglected sanitation, but can reduce the attendant loss of life, health and happiness that spring from these conditions.”
Wealthy Jewish progressives, Albert and Mary Lasker, funded the Negro Project. The Laskers were personal friends of Eleanor Roosevelt. The First Lady directed them to the project after Sanger inquired about financial support.
The Negro Project’s Proposal includes another sentence quoted extensively in pro-life literature, more “proof” of the project’s racist intentions: “The mass of ignorant Negroes still breed carelessly and disastrously, so that the increase among Negroes, even more than the increase among whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit, and least able to rear their children properly.”
George Grant cites this quote without attribution, an understandable omission once you find out who wrote it. The quote first appeared in an article in Birth Control Review written by W.E.B. Du Bois in 1932. From the pen of some white bureaucrat, the quote would certainly sound racist; from W.E.B. Du Bois, the founder of the NAACP, not so much.
Even though the Negro Project managers were not motivated by racism, there’s evidence that the southern public health officials who cooperated on the project were concerned with overpopulation among Negroes. The southern states were the first to offer birth control through their public health programs. It’s clear from the documentation that at least some state officials were racially motivated.
But many more southern segregationists adamantly opposed birth control, for the same reasons as the eugenicists. One prominent opponent of Sanger’s crusade was Walter A. Plecker, the driving force behind the “One Drop” laws in Virginia. Plecker wrote a scathing letter to Sanger’s ABCL castigating her efforts to legalize birth control:
The “one-drop rule” meant that any person with “one drop of Negro blood” was considered black. This rule became law in several states in the 1900s.The rule was adopted in Virginia under the state's 1924 Racial Integrity Act. The rule defined a person as legally “colored” (black) for classification and legal purposes if the individual had any African ancestry. Prior to this time, Virginia law stated that to be defined as mulatto (multi-racial), a person had to have at least one-quarter (equivalent to one grandparent) African ancestry.
I believe that Mrs. Sanger and her group have done far more to ruin the future of our country than all other methods combined, unless it is the amalgamation of the white and Negro races, now rapidly in progress. The evidence which I have is that universal adoption of the methods advocated by you has done much to increase immorality among the unmarried. … You may now be securing the adoption of such measures by the feebleminded and lower type, but I very much doubt it. You have, however, met with overwhelming success among the higher type. … [This] will mean their ultimate deterioration, just as it occurred in [ancient] Rome.
In any event, the Negro Project ended after only five years of operation, its birth control program reaching “proportionally fewer blacks than whites, despite their intentions,” Linda Gordon notes.
After a decade of being rejected by eugenicists, Sanger’s crusade finally gained an endorsement from the American Eugenics Society (AES) in 1932. Importantly, the endorsement included a repudiation of the “Johnson Resolution” and its call for differential birth rates. The AES announced its commitment to advancing “hereditary endowments without regard to class, race, or creed.”
Just one year earlier, the AES’s founder Henry Fairfield Osborn, the veritable dean of eugenics, had delivered a major attack on birth control at the International Congress of Eugenics in New York. So why the change? The sudden policy shift signaled a changing of the guards, not a change of Osborn’s heart. Henry Fairfield Osborn stepped down as head of AES to be replaced by his nephew Frederick Osborn. Frederick held very different opinions from his uncle. His uncle’s eugenics had stressed hereditarianism, differential birth rates, forced sterilization, and explicit racialism. Frederick would transform eugenics into population control, advocating policies that were indistinguishable from liberal utilitarianism. He had this to say: “There are social forces at work which, for good or for ill, are in the process of determining the ultimate future of our civilization. These forces are undoubtedly subject to social control and it is our responsibility that they be directed to useful ends.”
Frederick preached the Neo-Malthusian gospel: a reduction in the overall birth rate would improve living standards for everyone, rich and poor, white and black. Frederick Osborn purged the movement of racialism and repudiated the elitism that had characterized his uncle’s eugenics. Osborn said:
“Before 1930 eugenics had a racial and social class bias. This attitude on the part of eugenicists was not based on any scientific foundation. It had developed naturally enough of the class-consciousness of Galton’s England, and out of the racial problems presented so vividly to the U.S. by great immigration of the early part of the century. The ruling race and ruling class seemed, to members of the ruling race and class, to be evidently superior to the non-ruling races and classes.”
Undoubtedly, the Second World War and the Nazi experience accelerated the transformation. American eugenicists distanced themselves from the Nazis: “Galton’s view has been perverted by German race superiority, by irresponsible and unimportant racial agitators in America, and by cranks with various plans for breeding a better race,” the Eugenical News editorialized.
By the late 1940s the renovation was nearly complete. Eugenics became genetics. The names of organizations changed: Eugenical News became Social Biology; the American Breeders Association became the American Genetic Association. The Eugenics Records Office closed down, its vast archive of Family Records on “defectives” was handed over to the American Philosophical Society as useless to science. To this day, Cold Spring Harbor remains the epicenter of genetic research, its past carefully concealed behind the usual excuse: “By the standards of the day.” James Watson, the discoverer of DNA, studied there in 1948 and became director of Cold Spring Harbor lab in 1968.
Birth control became part of the population control agenda. In 1942 Sanger’s Birth Control Federation of America became Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Once again, Margaret was pushed aside by colleagues who found her impossible to work with. Contrary to Grant’s assertion otherwise, Sanger hated the name change: “Family planning for what, for summer vacation?” she scoffed. To Sanger, birth control had always been a means to liberate women from the family, not a tool to plan a better one. Frederick Osborn organized the Population Council and later the Population Association of America. He helped organize and secure funding for International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), formed in 1952, which has been organizing family planning programs in the Third World for over 60 years. At this stage, Margaret Sanger was semi-retired, acting as an ambassador of birth control until her death in 1966.
George Grant’s chief claim is that the population control establishment, Planned Parenthood in particular, remains true to its eugenics past, despite the cosmetic changes after the Second World War. He claims that a deep structure exists within Planned Parenthood and the other population control organizations that remains committed to the goal of eliminating the world’s non-white populations. This has resulted in a dramatic population decline in the Third World. “In the Third World regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, fertility rates are now declining…” Grant claims. “As a result, the world-wide birth rate is now falling faster than the mortality rate for the first time in history.” (tbc)
Don’t read Joyce Carol Oates A Book of American Martyrs if you want to know what prolifers who stopped serial killers are like. Read Jim Kopp’s story instead. I started running it last year and it continues here from the May isssue with Jim talking about his years in scouting:
At the far western side of the waadi we were camped in, you could see the sun just starting to rise, even while we were still freezing in the shade. We all hunched over the fire and scrambled around for something to eat. But the fire was everything. Bit by bit the sun got closer, and finally it hit us and we warmed up. The extreme shift from so much misery to so much happiness over simple sun was a huge lesson. A little cold or boredom won't kill you. How many people, now, do this or that compulsively because they can’t get over the fear of something like that?
They run from one unhappy job, or urban tiny hovel, to another because they've never spent a night out in the elements, never missed a meal, never tied a knot, never made a fire.
Later that same day we looked at a satellite dish at the Goldstone Tracking installation. It was huge. It must have been a hundred yards across, and at one point it started scanning the sky for a signal it was missing, and the sight of something that big moving reminded me of when i was on an aircraft carrier elevator when i was smaller. The sight of the perfectly white dish against the perfect desert cobalt sky was beautiful. Two pure colors in a world of muddiness.
Once our troop went to Chantry Flats near what's now the old Raiders Stadium. It’s a beautiful little canyon but it takes some doing to get back there and get back out. I woke up that Sunday morning with a fever, and Mr. Norris, the other scoutmaster, decided on the spot to bring everyone out. it only hit me years later that he had ended an entire trip to make sure just one kid was OK, a teamwork thing, just as Dad always taught us, but here it was, endorsed from someone outside my family. I was weak as a kitten and could barely walk and Mr. Norris wound up literally carrying me out on his back, and appealing to the other scouts on the basis of scout principles to help carry out the contents of my own pack.
Cherry Valley was an LA council camp on Catalina Island, 28 miles or so off San Pedro. At about six a.m. they would fire off a tiny cannon with the sound of a howitzer, play reveille, and shout, "Everybody up! It's a great day for scouting!"
Cherry Valley was an expansion of the troop with the only price of admission being that we followed scout principles. We got to hang out with scouts from all over LA. Do you see what this means? Without the organization and its principles, if you tried to put that many kids all together, strangers, anywhere, they would probably tear each other up and burn the place down. But we were scouts. There was a structure. This endless focus on “me and Jesus” with no thought for community, makes me tired at times. And those are the most functional ones. How about the ones so individualistic they have idolized their own ego? Hmmmm. . .
I even remember a Japanese scoutmaster who slaughtered a pig one summer and cooked it. Everyone got a bite. It was a painful experience for me, but, think about it. How many people in this world eat food they have no clue about how to make? They are helpless and pathetic. I can guarantee you that the man who did this did it in part out of a sincere heart, that he wanted all the boys to have a clue. Who knows when you might need to do that? And that was just one thing. It all adds together.
There were entire areas of the camp set aside for what in the manual we had seen only a little of -- woodcraft, cooking and firestarting, archery, crafts, swimming, canoeing, whatever. They were all played out in a much more serious way at Cherry Valley. You even got a certificate for swimming a mile in the ocean, something any mother would be grateful to know her son could do, right? No riptide drowning for him, and they lose kids to that every damn summer. Plenty of adults, too.
We had a national jamboree in Coeur d'Alene Idaho during the Trinity church Troop 226 years. Now it was thousands of scouts from all over the country, and fierce competition and guys doing all kind of stuff like stringing up huge cables and hanging from them and climbing ropes and obstacle courses and all kinds of stuff. You can say it’s corny, but this is the first time i saw the fulfillment of my dad's prophecy for me when i was tiny: some day i hope you are a very small part of something very big. Dad was thinking of how he had seen entire fleets and air wings and divisions on foot move out to war, but even in peacetime you and i can still ask ourselves: are we part of something bigger? Or do we just pretty much go through the day doing what we feel like and not concerned about anyone else. Well, something to think about, huh? (tbc)
