Bishop Samuel J. Aquila Encourages All Priests to Imitate Him by Spending One Hour in Front of Abortion Facility
Bishop Encourages All Priests to Imitate Him by Spending One Hour in Front of Abortion Facility LifeSiteNews ^ 9/18/07 Matthew Cullinan Hoffman
FARGO, September 18, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Samuel J. Aquila, the Catholic bishop of Fargo, North Dakota, is strongly encouraging his priests to imitate him by praying for an hour in front of an abortion facility during this year's national "Forty Days of Life".
The "Forty Days for Life", which is scheduled to take place from September 26th to November 4th of this year, is a program of pro-life activism modeled on the biblically significant number of forty days, found in both the old and new testaments. According to organizers, churches and organizations in 89 US cities and 33 states have agreed to participate by conducting vigils in front of abortion clinics, praying, and "fasting" in various ways (by giving up something valued). For more information, see http://www.40daysforlife.com/about.cfm.
Bishop Aquila hopes to encourage the participation by all of the faithful in his diocese through his own example and the example of his priests.
"I believe that, during these 40 days, many will readily join in prayer and fasting for an end to abortion in our state," wrote Bishop Aquila in a letter to the priests of his diocese. "That is commendable! But, we as priests must encourage our parishioners to go one step further - to commit to an hour of prayerful vigil at the abortion facility. We can only ask of them what we ourselves will do."
"I have committed to an hour of prayer at the abortion facility September 28, at 10:30 am," he continued. "As your bishop, I ask you to sign up for an hour of prayerful vigil, as well. Tell your parishioners when that hour will be and challenge them to meet or exceed your example. Maybe your parishioners could fill each slot of that particular day with presence from your parish. Maybe the young - youth groups or families - could physically be present while the elderly could be united with them in prayer at your church. Even if only two parishioners join you in your hour of prayer at the abortion facility, lives will be changed and some -- those of the unseen unborn -- may be saved."
Bishop Aquila also leads a prayer service in front of Fargo's only abortion clinic once a year on Good Friday.
Aquila has distinguished himself as an active and committed bishop for many years. During John Kerry's pro-abortion presidential campaign in 2004 he publicly warned "pro-choice Catholics" that they could not receive communion, and "they risk the possibility of hell." In 2005 he mandated that all couples preparing for marriage receive instruction on Catholic doctrines regarding human sexuality and Natural Family Planning, in response to the culture's promotion of contraception and easy divorce.
In addition to the example Bishop Aquila is setting for his priests with his participation in the "Forty Days of Life", he also leads a prayer service front of Fargo's only abortion clinic once a year on Good Friday.
In a press release accompanying his letter, Bishop Aquila declares an absolutely uncompromising commitment to pro-life activism. "Each day people who are active in pro-life efforts pray for those considering abortion, educate the public about the abortion crisis, and do other good works to protect the lives of unborn children," he states. "I commend them and thank them. Those efforts save lives and change hearts. They help to keep abortion numbers low in North Dakota."
"But low numbers are not enough," he continues. "Not even one abortion per week is acceptable. Not one per month. Not one per year. Not one in our lifetime." Quoting the United States Declaration of Independence, the bishop notes, "The dignity of the human person begins at the moment of conception, not at birth. The dignity, as recognized by the signers of the Declaration of Independence, is bestowed by the Creator, and no one has the right to destroy innocent unborn life."

At this very moment one of the most liberal organizations in our nation as fraudulent papers before a court in the Midwest awaiting permission to begin the systematic slaughter of innocent children on Tuesday.
Using false pretense, misdirected answers on applications, and fraudulent forms Planned Parenthood is awaiting word to see if it will be allowed to open a super-butchery in Aurora Illinois this coming Tuesday. The situation highlights a new trend for the tax-payer subsidized organization that is now resorting to lying to municipalities and their populations in order to set up shop, hack women's uteruses and slice children's bodies like lunchmeat.
Some of the children just inches from birth.
The way it works is first they set-up a phony name for a phony company. In the Aurora Illinois case they filed their fraudulent permits under the name of Gemini Office Management Corporation. Pretending to be a neutral landlord, they then asserted on the forms requesting the construction permits that the "tenant is unknown."
With the municipality duped, the residents of Aurora feel betrayed. Several reports have emanated from the region demonstrating that even people who do not normally protest abortion publicly are outraged and feel that they have been lied to.

"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Margaret Sanger from Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon
And now this was revealed today:
Israeli Doctor Exposes Nazi Abortion Program
Reveals Chilling Parallels with the Ideas of Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger
By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman
September 6, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An Israeli doctor has recently published an account of the Nazi use of abortion, euthanasia, and sterilization to eliminate groups they deemed "inferior stock", especially Jewish and Slavic people.
Dr. Tessa Chelouche writes that "Abortion was used as a weapon of mass destruction in Eastern Europe," where "it has been estimated that tens of thousands of Polish and Russian women were compelled to abort not because of health reasons, but because of Nazi dogma." She goes on to quote Hitler's 1942 policy statement on the application of abortion to Slavic people, which is chillingly similar to modern Planned Parenthood propaganda:
"In view of the large families of the Slav native population, it could only suit us if girls and women there had as many abortions as possible. We are not interested in seeing the non-German population multiply…We must use every means to install in the population the idea that it is harmful to have several children, the expenses that they cause and the dangerous effect on woman's health… It will be necessary to open special institutions for abortions and doctors must be able to help out there in case there is any question of this being a breach of their professional ethics."
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, expressed a similar objective about eliminating US colored people in a letter she wrote only months after Hitler's invasion of Poland: "We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Today, Planned Parenthood and other international promoters of abortion, sterilization, and contraception, often claim that the availability of such services is a "health issue" and is necessary to fight poverty, echoing Hitler's slogans.

If motherhood is a vocation, then special motherhood is a call to sanctity. Sanctity is achieved by uphill battles, lonely dark nights, and surprising moments of grace. As Catholics, we are called to help one another, using the great gifts of the Church, the sacraments, the intercession of the Blessed Mother and the Communion of Saints. One such saint is Dr Jerome Lejeune, the French geneticist who identified the chromosomal abnormality known as Trisomy-21 or Down syndrome. He dedicated his life to seeking the cure for Trisomy-21, and working to defend the dignity of our
children against negative public opinion, and the majority of the scientific community who still seek to destroy rather than heal these children. Unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted at the scandalous rate of 90%.

Hannity's America to investigate Planned Parenthood
This Sunday, Hannity's America on Fox News Channel will feature an investigation of Planned Parenthood. The show will air 8p CST and 11p CST.
The program's impetus was the Aurora situation and the tremendous uprising against it. But also covered will be PP's other dubious activities. In fact, show producers asked pro-lifers providing background info to keep it quiet until a couple days ago so they could do some digging of PP without it knowing.
The segment is supposed to air about 8:30p CST. It will feature one or more of the Scheidlers, and we hear it will also feature Chicago's own Yvonne Florczak-Seeman, who had five abortions and is now pro-life.
This is not Planned Parenthood's week.

This article is excerpted from Salvation is From the Jews, by Roy Schoeman (Ignatius Press, San Francisco: 2004), with the kind permission of the author.
Planned Parenthood and Nazi Eugenics
There is a facile temptation to think of Nazi anti-Semitism as an expression of Christianity and Christian theology—“applied Christianity”, if you will. But even a cursory examination of Nazi writings and policies shows that this is far from the truth—on the contrary, the campaign to exterminate the Jews grew out of the world view of secular materialism, of evolution and the exaltation of the natural over the supernatural, and was in fact an extreme expression of “applied Darwinism.”
In the past there have been many persecutions of the Jews in Christian countries. These persecutions fell into one of three categories. Some were mob actions, inflamed expressions of blood lust and fury. Tragically, many of these were incited by pseudo-Christian exhortations to avenge the death of Christ, or by related blood libels against the Jews (most particularly accusing them of the human sacrifice of Christian children). The pogroms and the rampaging mobs of the Crusades fall into this category. However, the Holocaust does not. The slaughter of the Holocaust was not produced by momentary mob hysteria, but was a calculated, “rational”, long-term campaign plotted by sober, if deranged, minds.
At a March 1925 international birth control gathering held in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the “black” and “yellow” peril. The man was not a National Socialist (Nazi) or a leader of the Ku Klux Klan. The speaker was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger’s American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood. Another doctor at this conference lamented that preventive medicine was saving the lives of “worthless unfits,” and he seriously suggested that euthanasia be used to “dispose of some of our utterly hopeless dependents,” but noted that this could not happen until the public changed its “prejudices” on the subject…
Elsewhere Sanger spoke of her plan for sterilizing those she designated as “unfit” as the “salvation of American civilization”. And she also spoke of those who were irresponsible and reckless’’, among whom she included those “whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers”. She further contended that “there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped”. Whether this was to be accomplished “voluntarily” does not appear to have been a serious policy impediment.

Planned Parenthood and Nazi Eugenics
Posted by Tom Piatak on July 25, 2007
In July 1941, a political prisoner escaped from Auschwitz. As a punishment, ten others were chosen by the Nazis to be killed in a starvation bunker. One of these men, Franciszek Gajowniczek, began lamenting what his death would mean for his wife and children. Upon hearing these cries, another prisoner, a Franciscan friar named Maksymilian Kolbe—who had run afoul of the Nazis after sheltering refugees, including hundreds of Jews, at his friary—volunteered to take Gajowniczek’s place and was sent to the starvation bunker in his stead. In the bunker, Kolbe became the leader of those awaiting death, whom he was often seen consoling and leading in prayers and hymns. Two weeks later, only four of the men were still alive, and Kolbe alone was conscious. The Nazis killed them all; Kolbe was seen calmly giving his arm to the executioner who injected him with carbolic acid. The memory of Kolbe’s courage and selflessness lived on in those who survived the Golgotha of Auschwitz, including Franciszek Gajowniczek, and Kolbe was canonized by John Paul II in 1982.
Christopher Hitchens alludes to Kolbe in his careless and dishonest polemic God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. Hitchens, though unable to bring himself to mention Kolbe by name, claims he was virtually the only Catholic hero of the Holocaust and dismisses him as “a rather ambivalent priest who … had apparently behaved nobly in Auschwitz.”

The roots, the philosophy, the vision and purpose permanently infect any organization. In the case of Planned Parenthood, it was a grand visionary attempt to get the right people reproducing and stop the wrong people from reproducing. Any guess as to who Miss Sanger believed needed sterilization? Right you are. Blacks were her target along with others.
I'm not involved in municipal politics, but it would seem to me bad form for a business to sneak its way into a community by falsifying documents and submitting false testimony in planning meetings.
Yet that's exactly how Planned Parenthood came to build its largest abortion mill in the country in Aurora, IL, soon to be known as the "Auschwitz of America."

Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger had a simple solution to poverty: kill unborn poor children
Her spirit lives in blogger Radical Mama who, in a post called "Breaking the cycle" [which she has since removed — see update #2 below], boasts of her ongoing attempts to convince a 15-year-old girl to abort against her mother's wishes.
Radical Mama knows the girl, Julia, through the 4-H group to which the teen belonged. "I am trying to think about this [pregnancy] objectively, but I just can’t," the blogger writes. "This is one of my kids. Isn’t this why I volunteer? To prevent this sh-- from happening?"
"This sh--" — e.g. baby — must be prevented, Radical Mama says, for every reason imaginable. Julia was pressured into sex (or so the blogger assumes); she is only 15; her family is poor and her father is an abusive drug addict, etc., etc. Yet, the girl's mother insists that the baby would be welcome — a reaction that has Radical Mama seething with self-righteous fury.

I think it is a sad commentary that we, as a culture, our using the Vick story to compare "What's worse?" "What's worse", we ask, " carelessly fathering illegitimate children, or dogfighting?". "Dogfighting or rape?" "Dogfighting or racism?" "Dogfighting or hateful nationalism?" "Dogfighting or (fill in the blank)....?"
Dogfighting is one more piece of evidence our country is in need of a spiritual transformation (please note I said spiritual and not necessarily religious). Animals are sentient beings - they feel pain, and they suffer, just like we do. They are not more important, or less important than human beings, but like human beings, they are important, too.
Every major faith teaches its followers to be responsible stewards of animals and the Earth. Please help us get the word out that caring for animals, just like caring for people, is an important part of just being a decent person and citizen. If we make this a priority, there will be no more dogfighting horror stories, and no more pointless comparisons of evils. Let us all rise, together, to be better people than we are today, shall we?

Well, here goes:
I do not believe that Michael Vick, disgusting and inhumane as his actions were, should get any prison time. An 18-month suspended sentence with probation, a hefty fine, and something like 1000 hours of community service in a local animal shelter seems to me to be an appropriate penalty.
And frankly, I can't justify a prison sentence for Michael Vick while that thug Ray Lewis is walking around a free man.

Dr. Alveda King, the niece of legendary human rights campaigner, Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., told a meeting of Priests for Life, that the killing of a quarter of the black population of the US has not been from the lynch mobs of her childhood days, but from abortionists, “who plant their killing centres in minority neighbourhoods and prey upon women who think they have no hope."
“The great irony,” she said, “is that abortion has done what the Klan only dreamed of.” King was speaking Sunday at the unveiling of memorials at the Birmingham, Alabama church served by her late father, the Rev. A. D. Williams King.
Dr. King pointed out that the killing of the unborn in the US, which has taken the lives of well over 42 million American children, is overwhelmingly concentrated in the African-American community. “In the last forty-plus years,” Dr. King said, “15 million black people have been denied their most basic civil right, the right to life. Roughly one quarter of the black population is now missing.”
The abortion movement’s history is inseparable from that of the eugenics movement that held the genocide of the “dysgenic races” races as a central goal and for which the poor were the “enemies of the people.” In the US, the abortion facilities and offices of Planned Parenthood are concentrated in poor areas where the black population is especially targeted.Margaret Sanger, the foundress of the organisation that eventually became Planned Parenthood, had as her goal the control and subjugation of the poor ethnic peoples including blacks.
Dr. King said, “It's time that we remember the sacrifices of men like my father and my uncle who worked and died so that our children could live.”“It's time to stop killing the future and keep their dream alive.”
Something is surely wrong with a country that values pit bulls more than unborn children.
Michael Vick made the mistake of killing and maiming dogs, and PETA in turn organized marches and protests and generally made his life miserable. However, had Vick been financing an abortion clinic, no doubt he would be a hero in the media.
In fact, had Vick run an abortion clinic where late-term abortions are done, PETA would be organizing marches in his honor and Planned Parenthood would have given him the Margaret Sanger Award. Just some bad choices on his part; he chose to kill dogs rather than people, and he now will pay with his freedom and perhaps his career.
Of course, this is the same Margaret Sanger who called for the "elimination of the Negro race" through eugenics. Perhaps had Sanger had her way, Vick never would have been born. (Of course, Martin Luther King, Jr., in 1966 proudly accepted the Margaret Sanger Award, which I find to be a bit ironic. But, then, Sanger called for the black ministers to help in her eugenics campaign.)
We also hit on this point brilliantly explained in this post by Thomas DiLorenzo at the Lew Rockwell Blog:
None of the talking heads on ESPN has defended Michael Vick, of course, and quite a few of their guests have denounced him. There is general agreement there that his treatment of his dogs was barbaric (which it certainly was) and criminal.
But at the same time, ESPN broadcasts all those Sunday morning hunting shows, especially in the fall, where corporate executives dressed like bubbas in coveralls and carrying elephant rifles blow away deer, turkey, pheasants, ducks, and other critters, then pose to have their picture taken with their "prey." I guess animal cruelty is OK with ESPN as long as there's no gamblin' involved. (Not to mention that poor bass that they photograph getting hooked over and over again on those fishing shows).

The Wikipedia account of Margaret Sanger's speech to the Ku Klux Klan states the following:
"...Sanger even gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey..."
Below in italics you will see the words of Margaret Sanger as they appear in her Autobiography.
Although no record of what Margaret Sanger actually said at the Klan Rally exists, the words in bold are actual birth control quotes from Margaret Sanger used on other occassions that reflect how Sanger may have lectured on birth control at a Klan Rally.
Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan...As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. I waited another twenty minutes. It was warmer and I did not mind so much. Eventually the lights were switched on, the audience seated itself, and I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak.
"Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race."
Margaret Sanger. Woman, Morality, and Birth Control. New York: New York Publishing Company, 1922. Page 12.
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.

"As an advocate of birth control I wish ... to point out that the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the 'fit,' admittedly the greatest present menace to civilization, can never be rectified by the inauguration of a cradle competition between these two classes. In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation....On the contrary, the most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of the mentally and physically defective. "

"The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics."

"Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying ... demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism ... [Philanthropists] encourage the healthier and more normal sections of the world to shoulder the burden of unthinking and indiscriminate fecundity of others; which brings with it, as I think the reader must agree, a dead weight of human waste. Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant ... We are paying for, and even submitting to, the dictates of an ever-increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who never should have been born at all."
Margaret Sanger. The Pivot of Civilization, 1922. Chapter on "The Cruelty of Charity," pages 116, 122, and 189. Swarthmore College Library edition.
"The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind."
Margaret Sanger, quoted in Charles Valenza. "Was Margaret Sanger a Racist?" Family Planning Perspectives, January-February 1985, page 44.
"The third group [of society] are those irresponsible and reckless ones having little regard for the consequences of their acts, or whose religious scruples prevent their exercising control over their numbers. Many of this group are diseased, feeble-minded, and are of the pauper element dependent upon the normal and fit members of society for their support. There is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped."
Margaret Sanger, The Birth Control Review, Gothic Press, pages 172 and 174.
At some point, the crowd of Klanswomen certainly must have broken into a chant of "Maggie! Maggie! Maggie!..." Sanger concludes her account of this event in her Autobiography by noting that her performance earned her twelve invitations from like-minded groups.
In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.
The Wikipedia entry makes Sanger's speech at the Klan Rally sound like a dry public health discussion. But you will note from Sanger's past quotes on birth control that this is not at all how she discussed the topic, and it would certainly be logical to think that she broke out some of her more inflamatory talking points to use on the Klanswomen. The Wikipedia entry also notes that Sanger called it "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing," but it fails to mention that the crowd was "parading with banners and illuminated crosses."
Wikipedia further neglects to mention that after the Klan speech "a dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered ." Yes, Maggie must have really been a hit with the Klanswomen.

The highly inflammatory remarks attributed by several newspapers to Dr. Edward Allred, owner of the largest chain of abortion clinics in California, had caused some to attribute the abortion deaths of several Black and Hispanic women to racial prejudice.
"On the Edge of the Racist Pit," The Daily Californian, October 14, 1980, at 4B, col. 1. "Doctor Labeled 'Racist' in Abortion Suit," at B-1, col. 1 (describing a $14 million lawsuit filed against Dr. Allred in connection with the abortion death of 16-year-old Patricia Chacon in which it was alleged that Chacon had "received substandard medical treatment as a result of her race and ancestry, rather than medical treatment based on her . . . condition and needs," id. at col. 2, quoting Jack Schuler, attorney for Patricia Chacon's parents).
The following remarks upon which the allegation was made had been attributed to Dr. Allred in a story which appeared in the San Diego Union:
"Population control is too important to be stopped by some right-wing pro-life types. Take the new influx of Hispanic immigrants. Their lack of respect of democracy and social order is frightening. I hope I can do something to stem that tide; I'd set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake. . . . The Aid to Families With Dependent Children program is the worst boondoggle ever created. When a sullen black woman can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to all of us it's time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles having babies for welfare is the only industry the people have."- "Doctor's Abortion Business is Lucrative," San Diego Union, B-1, col. 1 (Oct. 12, 1980).
Dr. Allred's aversion to government subsidies did not prevent him from collecting approximately $3 million in public subsidies in 1980 for performing abortions. Dr. Allred's statements reflect the same philosophy as demonstrated by Margaret Sanger, the founder and heroine of Planned Parenthood when she said "[t]he most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." E. Drogin, Margaret Sanger, Father of Modern Society 33 (1986), citing Gordon, Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America 33 (1976).
Neo Nazi Tom Metzger:
“Covertly invest into non-White areas, invest in ghetto abortionclinics. Help to raise money for free abortions, in primarily non-White areas. Perhaps abortion clinic syndicates throughout North America, thatprimarily operate in non-White areas and receive tax support, should bepromoted.”
Abortionist Edward Allred:
"I'd set up a clinic in Mexico for free if I could. Maybe one in Calexico would help. The survival of our society could be at stake. . . . The Aid to Families With Dependent Children program is the worst boondoggle ever created. When a sullen black woman can decide to have a baby and get welfare and food stamps and become a burden to all of us it's time to stop. In parts of South Los Angeles having babies for welfare is the only industry the people have."
Planned Parenthood Foundress Margaret Sanger:
"[t]he most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

At a recent presidential forum, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York decried the failure of activists on both sides to work together to bring down the number of abortions. She repeated a mantra her husband made famous more than a decade ago: Abortion, she said, should be "safe, legal and rare."
Then Clinton paused and added deliberately: "And by rare, I mean rare."
So while keeping abortion legal, what steps can Hillary immediately take to help make abortion rare, "and by rare, I mean rare."
If Hillary is serious about making abortion "rare," there are some very serious steps she can take instantly that will reduce the number of abortions very quickly - - all without changing abortion laws.
One model Hillary could follow is the anti-smoking campaign. While cigarette smoking remains legal in this country, much is being done to discourage this behavior. Let's take a look at some of these steps and how they can be applied to making abortion rare.
1) When politicians want to discourage certain behaviors they usually put a tax on them.
Taxing anything reduces demand...this is just simple economics. Abortions usually cost in the range of $800 to $1,000. A 50% tax on abortions would certainly drive down the demand.
A tax on abortions? I know Democrats love taxes, but I don't see Hillary backing this one.
2) Public Service Announcements
We have seen the effectiveness of hip, targeted anti-smoking commercials in reducing teen smoking. Imagine Hillary popping on MTV for a PSA featuring a 3D ultrasound machine, and saying something like, "If you are pregnant and not sure what to do, don't harm this little guy. Get yourself to a crisis pregnancy center where they will treat both you and your unborn child with care and respect. "
Stop for a second and imagine the impact of Hillary sending a message like this to young women. It might not instantly make abortion rare, "and by rare I mean rare," but many lives would be saved.
Can we expect to see this from Hillary? Well, yes, if she was actually sincere about reducing the numbers of abortion.
3) Federally Funded Respect Life Education Campaign
Today, our schools have all kinds of campaigns wholly unrelated to Reading, Writing and Arithmatic. There is DARE teaching kids about the danger of drugs, anti-bullying campaigns, anti-smoking campaigns and all sorts of specials causes.
Certainly, if Hillary wants to make abortion rare, she would be willing to champion a massive federal education campaign in our schools to teach our children to Respect Life.Such a campaign could use the latest and best medical evidence and technological advancements to call for tolerance, compassion, and mercy toward the least of our brothers and sisters, the unborn. Focused on fetology and the humanity of the unborn, such a campaign would include public service announcements on television and radio as well as billboards throughout the country with a particular focus on inner city neighborhoods where the abortion rate is at epidemic proportions. This information would also be brought into classrooms across the country and a world class prolife curriculum would be developed for children K thru 12.
We know that up to ninety percent of women considering abortion choose life if they are permitted to view the child on an ultrasound. Bring these ultrasound videos into our public schools and make our unborn children the stars of scientific and factual public education campaign.
An ambitious public education campaign focused on the humanity of the unborn child is the least we should expect from a committed progressive like Hillary who, in her own words, wants to make abortion rare, "and by rare I mean rare."
Hillary's Surprising Solution
So does Hillary really want to make abortion rare? All of the above steps can be taken without making abortion illegal, without restricting a women's "right to choose," and without overruling Roe v Wade?
No, this is not what Hillary intends to do. She has another even more surprising solution.
FREE federally funded ABORTIONS !
The advent of socialized health care and massive taxpayer abortion subsidies may take the United States by stealth, unless the new health care bill proposed by Democrats Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) and Rep. John Dingle (D-MI) is vetoed by President Bush.
Now let's get this straight. If we look again at the anti-smoking campaign, one of the solutions was to drive down demand by making cigarettes more expensive with a cigarette tax.
Would Hillary really claim that she wanted to make smoking rare, "and by rare I mean rare," while at the same time advocating free cigarettes for everyone?
Abortions currently cost between $800 and $1,00 dollars and Hillary is claiming she wants to make abortion RARE while at the same time she is actually working to make them FREE.So does Hillary really want to make abortion rare or does she actually want to make them free?
Well, if you listen to Clinton's words, you can believe she wants to make abortion rare. But if you look at her voting record, you will realize she wants to make them free and plentiful.

Rereading Sanger's own account of her Ku Klux Klan speech, one thing really jumped out at me the other day. Here are some of the more relevant passages:
"Always to me any aroused group was a good group, and therefore I accepted an invitation to talk to the women's branch of the Ku Klux Klan..."
"After three hours I was summoned at last and entered a bright corridor filled with wraps. As someone came out of the hall I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses. "
"In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered. The conversation went on and on, and when we were finally through it was too late to return to New York."
12 invitations to speak to similar groups! That must have been one heck of a speech to our nation's premiere hate group! What could the racist founder of Planned Parenthood possibly have said to inspire such a reaction? How did she engage this hate group so that the "conversation went on and on" late into the night? What were the "simple illustrations " that made this hate group go so ga-ga over Maggie?
Of course, if Margaret Sanger simply repeated some of the things she had said elsewhere, the Ku Klux Klanners would have been puddy in her hands:
"Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated."
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
Yes, a couple of lines like the one's above, and you can imagine the murmur in the crowd as the Ku Klux Klanners whispered to each other things like:
"We really must have her talk at our next Klan rally in Peoria...this lady is phenomenal."
"Oh yes, they will love the way Maggie refers to Negroes as 'human weeds.'"
"My husband will love her...she sounds just like him!"
Given Sanger's long history of racist quotes , it is no surprise "the conversation went on and on" between this racist women and the Ku Klux Klan.
Yes, Maggie must have really brought her "A-game" that night to get 12 additional invitations to similar hate groups.
Since Margaret Sanger was so open about speaking to the Ku Klux Klan and so outspoken about her hatred of Blacks, I am always surprised when critics object to my annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest. What can possibly be wrong with depicting Margaret Sanger at a Ku Klux Klan Rally when she openly admits to it in her autobiography? She even refers to the women "parading with banners and illuminated crosses" and describes it as "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing."
Of course, if Sanger had been a conservative Christian, any made-for-TV movie about her life made by Hollywood would necessarily open with Margaret Sanger giving her fiery speech before the adoring women of the Ku Klux Klan with her past racist quotes inserted into her mouth in an attempt to most accurately depict the event. There would be entire books and plays dedicated to the event and elementary school students would learn about it in 4th, 6th and 8th grades.
But since Sanger founded the McDonald's of the abortion industry, Planned Parenthood, the mainstream media, who are just as ga-ga over Maggie and the Klan was, just ignores that magical night in Silver Lake when Maggie cut loose and won the hearts of a hate group. So until Hollywood does its job and tells the true story about Margaret Sanger, our tiny blog will continue with its annual Margaret Sanger at the Ku Klux Klan Rally Art Contest - - so begin preparing now for the 3rd Annual contest in October.

Aside from Ron Paul, Sam Brownback and Duncan Hunter also seem to be running well.
And from Catholics against Rudy, we get this quote from Giuliani:
In the 1990s, Giuliani also spoke at a Planned Parenthood convention and declared a “Planned Parenthood Day” and issued a proclamation honoring eugenist Margaret Sanger.”
The two big issues for DefundAbortionGuy:
1) Who will appoint Scalia-like judges? and,
2) Who will stop my tax dollars from going to Klanned Parenthood? or is it Planned Parenthood?

The outcry and public protests due to the mistreatment of pit bulls has been overwhelming. If only unborn humans were loved so much. Where is the outrage when this little fella is killed?
For now, at least, the unborn remain more popular with the media than SUV's.

ATLANTA, Ga., July 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Dr. Alveda King, Pastoral Associate of Priests for Life and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., today said that the allegations of animal cruelty announced in the case against star quarterback Michael Vick highlight the disparity in societal protections for animals and unborn humans.
"The appalling cruelty to dogs described in the complaint against Michael Vick immediately reminds me of another kind of cruelty that is not only not punished, but is protected by our authorities," said Dr. King. "I'm talking about the incredible cruelty suffered by babies who are stabbed, have limb torn from limb, or have their skulls crushed in the womb by abortionists. The pain these children endure is undoubtedly excruciating, yet we close our eyes and look the other way in the name of 'choice.'"
'Yes, of course we should ensure humane treatment of animals," said Dr. King, "but shouldn't we also humanely treat humans?"

*Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.
*Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics and almost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.
*About 13 percent of American women are black, but they submit to over 35 percent of the abortions.

Call me cynical but my research into the eugenics/racism/KKK background of Margaret Sanger only makes me very suspicious about Planned Parenthood (her organization) and white folks dabbling with black life. Like Martin Luther King’s niece Alveda King, and his late daughter, I consider this kind of thing to be nothing more than genocide against black folks.

Quotes from Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood
Friday, July 06, 2007
Of course, we can’t forget about abortion. Like most black Americans, the Republican Party is staunchly opposed to abortion. But, Democrats don’t see it that way – and don’t kid yourself, part of the reason why Democrats are so rabidly pro-abortion is because they believe it helps lower the number of black Americans. Today, they won’t come out and say that, but Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was never so circumspect about her motives. From La Shawn Barber, ”More controversial is Sanger’s ‘Negro Project,’ devised in 1939. The eugenicist set out to implicate black ministers and doctors in her efforts to spread her message of contraception, sterilization, and abortion in the black community. ‘The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it occurs to any of their more rebellious members,’ she wrote.”
The Negro Project
Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans

Say it aint so!:
"In 1926, Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, was a guest speaker at a KKK rally in Silverlake, New Jersey."
"In fact, she was the guest speaker at a Ku Klux Klan rally in Silverlake, N. J. in 1926"
"In 1926, in what she called "one of the weirdest experiences I had in lecturing", Sanger even gave a lecture on birth control to the women's auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan in Silver Lake, New Jersey, a group she found so ignorant she had to use only "the most elementary terms, as though I were trying to make children understand."(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Sanger)
And go to http://members.cox.net/gaelic/SangerKlan.jpg for an interesting photograph. Let's not "whitewash" history. I sincerly hope I am mistaken and she advocated birth control for KKK members. The friend of my enemy is my enemy.

Diane Dew has a pretty good collection of Margaret Sanger quotes that can be seen here:
Margaret SangerFounder of Planned Parenthood In Her Own Words
My guess is that she began her talk at the Ku Klux Klan Rally with something similar to this one:
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," Margarety Sanger said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon
Tuesday, March 20, 2007
Here in the United States, one unfortunate woman suffered terrible setbacks as a result of this public relations catastrophe. Her name was Margaret Sanger, and she had spent years warning against the growth of "human weeds", speaking to Ku Klux Klan rallies, opining that the "aboriginal Australian" was "the lowest known species of the human family, just a step higher than the chimpanzee in brain development", and warning the New York legislature that
The Jewish people and Italian families who are filling the insane asylums, who are filling our feeble-minded institutions, these are the ones the tax payers have to pay for the upkeep of, and they are increasing the budget of the State, the enormous expense of the State is increasing because of the multiplication of the unfit in this country and in the State.
Sanger even dreamed of establishing a vast American concentration camp for "morons, mental defectives, epileptics... illiterates, paupers, unemployables, criminals, prostitutes, [and] dope-fiends". In all, she wanted to forcibly imprison about one-seventh of the entire American population. Needless to say, she was an enthusiastic supporter of the pioneering eugenics done by doctors of the Third Reich. For years, her slogan summed up a philosophy warmly received by her colleagues in Hitler's scientific elite: "Birth Control: To Create a Race of Thoroughbreds!"
The problem for Margaret Sanger was that all this became a tough sell in the post-war years, what with pictures of Dachau and Auschwitz circulating in classrooms and history books. So the organization she had founded changed its marketing strategy. Instead of encouraging Americans to worship racial purity, Planned Parenthood instead seized on the much more salable notion (pioneered by Freud) that we should throw off the shackles of guilt and responsibility and worship sex. This was sold as "Birth Control" but the practical outcome was, as Chesterton famously remarked, "No birth and no control."
The outcome of this story is a catalogue of human misery: Massive STD rates, a contraceptive culture in which love and fruitfulness are damned as hindrances to sexual pleasure, the ever-increasing sexualization of childhood, and 1.5 million abortions in the United States alone each year. And so, as Pope John Paul II said, "The cemetery of the victims of human cruelty in our century is extended to include yet another vast cemetery, that of the unborn."
But don't say that in Oregon schools or they will fire you and lie about you.

Check out this sick idea from the federally funded demons at Klan Parenthood:
Good Friday Solidarity Event: April 6th
In just 3 weeks, almost 1,000 protesters will descend upon Planned Parenthood's Highland Park clinic in a day-long effort to intimidate and harass our patients and staff.
It is important to let our patients and the larger community know that there is support for Planned Parenthood and the services we provide.
Sign-Up TODAY to take part in our Good Friday Solidarity event. The purpose of this event is to provide a peaceful, pro-choice presence at our Highland Park facility.
Planned Parenthood has been providing quality, affordable health care services for the men and women of Minnesota for almost 80 years; we have no intention of letting anyone intimidate us or close our doors.
Click Here to learn more about our Good Friday Solidarity Event and to sign-up!
We need all the support we can muster for this very important day!
Why do you think abortion has been so disproportionately prevalent in the black community?
Margaret Sanger [founder of Planned Parenthood] had a eugenics program, and she wanted to eliminate certain elements of the population. One of Sanger’s targeted groups was black people [Google “The Negro Project”]. She sent secret messages about wanting to eliminate blacks, saying that if we can get their leaders to support us then we can get in there and do this. You can find research on this at http://www.blackgenocide.org/ .

Who profits financially in cases of child sex abuse?
The dirty little secret is that Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation know they will sell more abortions, more birth control products and more treatments for sexually transmitted diseases when they turn a blind eye to child rape. Men involved with minors need to conceal these sexual relationships, so they take their underage victims to clinics that offer minors confidential abortion services and birth control. When Planned Parenthood and other family planning service providers ignore child abuse reporting laws, they help these men to continue their ongoing sexual abuse of children.
It's illegal for an adult man to seduce an underage girl into a sexual relationship. Every state has statutory rape laws that prohibit sex between adults and children. But Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, family planning service providers, and all other clinics that profit from selling products and services to sexually active underage girls, have a financial incentive to ignore the laws that were designed to protect children from sexual abuse. And now there’s proof that 91% of these businesses don’t comply with child abuse reporting laws. On the contrary, they actually help conceal child rape from law enforcement!
Who is using tax dollars to protect child abusers?
Men who prey on underage girls just have to put up the cash and Planned Parenthood clinics will quietly help these men cover up child rape. Despite receiving millions of tax dollars from various government entities, Planned Parenthood clinics consistently counsel underage girls to conceal ongoing child rape. Clinics do this because they profit every time they convince a minor child to utilize their services. Planned Parenthood's profits from selling pregnancy tests, abortions and other services to child rape victims would drop substantially if they actually obeyed the laws on reporting potential child sexual abuse.
All fifty states require healthcare workers and others to report suspected child abuse to Child Protective Services or some other law enforcement agency. But family planning services and abortion clinics operated by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation continue to thumb their noses at child abuse reporting laws. The National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics profit handsomely by ignoring child rape reporting laws and, if this issue comes up, they hide behind a lot of rhetoric about “privacy” in order to avoid the real issue - their willful failure to comply with these child protection laws.
The tapes don't lie, but Planned Parenthood does!
Our undercover investigation obtained over 800 taped conversations with Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation clinics all across America, which prove that Planned Parenthood and NAF fail to comply with the law. They ignore the law even in cases of child sex abuse where child rape is disclosed and acknowledged - not just suspected. These tapes have already been used in court by one state to defend their parental involvement law against a Planned Parenthood lawsuit. To learn more about this investigation and the evidence that proves that this failure to report is the policy and practice of these groups, Click here.

The founder of Planned Parenthood was Margaret Sanger. She was an avid racist who considered blacks and retarded people "human weeds" and advocated abortion as a means to rid society of them. Just thought you should know that. Think of that every time you pass a Planned Parenthood clinic.
An early twentieth century movement seriously proposed the practice of selective breeding of the human species, usually known as eugenics. Margaret Sanger, a vocal eugenist, openly lamented the unrestricted propagation of "inferior types". She wrote about producing a "race of thoroughbreds", and eliminating "human weeds". (See this link for starters.) Founder of the American Birth Control League, today's Planned Parenthood, she mainly targetted her birth control measures to the poor, immigrants, and other minority groups. These remain the primary target clientele for Planned Parenthood today.

40 Days for Life - Praying and Fasting Outside Planned Parenthood for All of Lent
By John-Henry Westen KITSAP COUNTY, WA, March 6, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - An ambitious and well-organized pro-life initiative bringing churches together to fast, pray and hold a vigil for the unborn outside Planned Parenthood all the 40 days of Lent has become the talk of the town and is changing hearts and minds.
Kitsap Human Life, an affiliate of Human Life of Washington has coordinated volunteers to keep vigil outside the abortion centre from 8am-8pm Monday through Saturday Feb. 21 through April 7.In addition to fasting, prayer and the vigil, the group has undertaken 40 days of outreach.
"The pro-life message will reach every household in Kitsap County through person-to-person outreach, announcements in church bulletins and the secular media, letters to the editor of local newspapers, a local newspaper advertising campaign, and through many other channels," explains the group's website.
The ongoing vigil has attracted the attention of the local paper, the Kitsap Sun.
In a Sunday full-page story dedicated to the vigil, Kitsap Human Life President Jack McGowan says, "People don't know what Planned Parenthood stands for." McGowan adds: "We're standing for those who can't stand for themselves."The program has also attracted the attention of national pro-life leadership.
Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said that the ongoing 40-day vigil of demonstrators outside the offices of Planned Parenthood of Western Washington is doing more than raising awareness for the pro-life cause.
"What Kitsap Human Life is doing this Lenten season does more than make people aware that Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion profiteer," said Fr. Pavone. "This vigil is a sign of what Lent means in the first place; self-sacrificing love to save the helpless. Groups across the nation should follow the example of Kitsap Human Life."
Andrew St.Hilaire, a pro-life supporter connected to Kitsap Human Life commented to LifeSiteNews.com on the remarkable potential of such endeavours.
"This is an excellent opportunity to gather support from Christians and pro-lifers across the board," he said. "I am strongly convinced that after a person's first or second time participating in prayer outside an abortion facility, they will be increasingly more active in the pro-life movement. It is on the streets in prayer outside the modern day concentration camps that people recognize for the first time the gravity of the situation. It is then they realize that action must be taken."

Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent.
Twice as many African-Americans have died from abortion than have died fromAIDS, accidents, violent crimes, cancer, and heart disease combined.
Every three days, more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.
Planned Parenthood operates the nation's largest chain of abortion clinics andalmost 80 percent of its facilities are located in minority neighborhoods.
About 13 percent of American women are black, but theysubmit to over 35 percent of the abortions.
Sanger would be thoroughly pleased with the way her organization continues to run itself, and especially with the support it gets from Black leaders such as Senator Obama.
More Proof that Abortionists are Racists brilliantly outlines the true intent of Planned Parenthood and its foundress Margaret Sanger.
African-American women make up only 13 percent of the United States population of women who are of child-bearing age, yet 37 percent of all abortions are performed on black women. The abortion rate among black women is more than three times higher than that of white women.
According to Gardner: “The abortion industry purposefully targets the African American community. The question is why? The abortion industry places abortion clinics in our minority and poor neighborhoods to “coax us” into thinking abortion is the best answer — the only answer to an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy — and we ask why?
“Black women don’t have to kill our children to have productive, successful lives. Instead of embracing the ‘right to kill’ our children in the name of reproductive choice, we should be working to ensure that each and every African American child is given every opportunity—to experience life—to prove herself/himself—to become part of our rich cultural heritage—to change the world—and maybe also to save it.”
