Threats Against Pro-Lifers Escalate?

by Matthew Archbold Monday, National Catholic Register, December 06, 2010

attack on Joseph and Ann ScheidlerIt seems that pro-aborts aren’t happy just killing babies anymore. Now they’re threatening people outside the womb too. Actually, it was always this way. Let’s face it, you didn’t think a cavalier attitude towards life stopped at an incidental thing called birth, did you?

It’s been well publicized that the home of pro-life leaders Joseph and Ann Scheidler was recently attacked by people throwing bricks through their front window with nasty messages tied to them like “We are crazy feminist bi***es who will destroy your sexist ideas.”

But also this week, another incident at one of the most infamous abortion clinics in America occurred, according to Pro-Life Corner:

The Rockford abortion mill was visited by five abortion supporters from the Chicago area today who stood at the driveway to the mill screaming at mothers not to talk with pro-life sidewalk counselors. They had come to Rockford to try to block mothers from using a free mobile ultrasound motor home that has been parking near the mill to offer help to mothers in need.

the accompanying message to the Scheidler's In an attempt to confuse and turn mothers away from seeing a free ultrasound, the abortion mill security guard placed a sign near the motor home that said, “Free Abortions In Motor-home.”

Note: I vividly recall protesting at an abortion clinic in Boston a few years ago when a car full of 'ladies' circled, letting out the feminist 'war cry' which sounds something like Islamic women in mourning, only vicious. Robotic programmed lemmings, awash in blood.

Stacy Ross and Jud Williford in Macbeth (Photo by: Kevin Berne)End of act 1, Macbeth and Lady MacBeth plan to invite King Duncan over for a feast. There they will be able to kill him. Lady MacBeth time and again manipulatively accused her ambitious, power-hungry husband (though hardly more than this murderous rationalizing She-wolf) that he was too weak to do the job. Now she 'wins'.

After the deed, Lady Macbeth sleepwalks, filled with anxiety. She keeps trying to rub the blood stains off of her scrubbed hands and cannot. Even when she is in her bed asleep, she is seen rubbing her hands to rid herself of the stains, in vain. Roe.

--->Planned Parenthood, What Happened to the Money...? According to Wikipedia, Planned Parenthood gets about a third of its funding from the federal government. This killing is big business, a veritable multinational corporation, established to reduce populations especially [but not only] in poor neighborhoods and countries. And it's all done cynically under the lofty banner of women's rights and freedom.

--->Wikileaks founder Julian Assange arrested. Snagged in a 'honey trap'...? "There is scant evidence — in the public domain at least — of rape, sexual molestation or unlawful coercion... What happened next is difficult to explain. The most likely interpretation of events is that as a result of a one-night stand, one participant came to regret what had happened. Jessica was worried she could have caught a sexual disease, or even be pregnant: and this is where the story takes an intriguing turn." [I'm surprised Assange allowed himself to set foot into this snare, as old as the world]

--->U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has begun a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks. "This is not saber-rattling," Holder said... Question: Based on US precedent since 2001, could Julian Assange, if or when turned over to US authorities, be tortured to give up confirming or suspected evidence on who is responsible for leaks in the government to Wikileaks? Perhaps his high-profile status would prevent that. I can only hope so, whether what he did was indeed wise and noble or rash.

---> Mary Eberstadt on The End and the Beginning: Pope John Paul II — The Victory of Freedom, the Last Years, the Legacy by George Weigel.

Eberstadt writes,

"There was indeed much that the communists didn’t understand — including that men like the pope and Alexander Solzhenitsyn were more right than wrong about what really makes human beings tick. Nonetheless, the masters in Moscow and Krakow and East Berlin and other tragic wastelands of modern history did get a few pretty big things right. They knew, or at any rate were forced to learn, that an otherworldly pauper in a Roman collar could do more to bring them down than any worldly prince seeking business as usual. They knew that Christian religious belief and practice were on a permanent collision course with totalitarianism, which is why they persecuted it everywhere they could. They understood, in short, that the chief enemies of the state were those who did not believe the state had the authority to call the ultimate moral and political shots....Read it all

Note: While certainly correct in the main, that last sentence appears ambiguous, it seems to me. The Church teaches the state does indeed call the "political shots" as long as it does not transgress the moral shots [even though in practice the state very often does, but not legitimately according to Catholic teaching]. The ambiguity seems to hinge on the meaning of "ultimate".

Increasing ubiquitous surveillance, like war, is good for those at the top of economy where the wealth through technology is shared. Life is 'good' for those at the top of the pyramid. They have all the reward they will ever get, short of turning around spiritually.
