How the March of Dimes Neutralized Pro-life Opposition
USCL ^

Subject: MOD’s Early Anti-Life History (1968-1976)

Dear Friend of Life,

On April 26, 2009, the March of Dimes, the number one promoter of eugenic abortion in the United States, will be launching its annual walkathon, Walk America, recently renamed “March for Babies.”  Among the recently released files of the USCL is the MOD/Voss Memorandum titled “Pro-Life Agitation” released by the MOD National Office on March 16, 1976.

The document spells out how the MOD used the Catholic bishops’ NCCB/USCC Family Life Office in Washington, D.C. to neutralize pro-life opposition to its early anti-life policies and programs including the promotion and financing of non-therapeutic fetal experimentation, human embryo research, and eugenic abortion.

The complete text of the Voss Memorandum is contained in the USCL report

“Who Will Defend Michael? Part I, available for the first time online at http://uscl.info/edoc/doc.php?doc_id=77&action=inline.

“Who Will Defend Michael?” Part II, also online at http://uscl.info/edoc/doc.php?doc_id=78&action=inline,
highlights:

· Maternal dangers and fetal complications associated with mid-trimester amniocentesis including premature births, the leading cause of neonatal death, second only to induced abortion.

· The severed heads/ experiment of MOD grantee, Dr. Peter Adam, carried out in Finland on live fetuses, 12 to 20 weeks gestation obtained by hysterotomy abortions.

· Use of TBA (to-be-aborted) women in MOD-funded fetoscopy trials.

· Tay-Sachs - MOD’s prototype program for eliminating genetic disorders by eliminating the affected unborn child, aka, “search and destroy mission” and the “health by death ethic.”

Additional USCL documentation on MOD anti-life activities can be found at:

· http://uscl.info/edoc/doc.php?doc_id=44&action=inline

· http://uscl.info/edoc/doc.php?doc_id=42&action=inline.

According to Randy Engel, Director of the U.S. Coalition for Life, prolifers should continue to boycott the March of Dimes, and encourage other Americans to do the same.

“The MOD has not changed its anti-life spots in 40 years,” said Engel, “but, luckily, we have a pro-life alternative to the March of Dimes in the International Foundation for Genetic Research/Michael Fund (www.michaelfund.org).”

“The pro-life community and parents of children with Down syndrome has been at the forefront of financially supporting the prolife genetic research program of the IFGR/Michael Fund since its founding in 1978,” Engel said. “Hopefully, 2009 will mark the year that we are joined in this worthy endeavor by individual Catholic bishops and other religious leaders,” Engel concluded.

I get the blackest looks when I refuse the cashier’s request to donate to the MOD at checkout.

Then I tell them why and they look....well, stupefied.

You know, I never knew this stuff, and I actually once helped (by sending out letters in my neighborhood and collecting donations). Wow, I simply had no idea.

Think that’s bad?

UNICEF sends *kids* out trick or treating for them and promotes abortion.

How evil is that?

I get black looks for *not* donating to a lot of killer causes at checkouts.

PETA....HSUS...the list goes on.

I’ve had some checkout personnel actually try to argue the point when I bother to tell them *why*.
[which I do loudly enough so all the people in line behind me hear *why*, too]

Yes, I ~am~ naturally combative...why do you ask?...;D

That’s the trick.

What kind of evil person could *possibly* be -against- such ~seemingly~ benevolent and virtuous “causes”?

It makes you look like you’re *for* kicking puppies.

Liberals are masters at manipulation of emotion.

Never forget this line:

“Villainy wears no deadlier guise than that of Virtue”.

I don’t think I even know what the United Fund is. Is that related to the United Way?

Actually, we donate to Samaritan’s Purse, and we sponsor a child in Africa.

Tell hubby that.

They have scores of bell ringers all over the place at Christmas time and he says I’m actually physically incapable of passing one without putting in a dollar.

[this goes on with every trip to town from the time they start to Christmas Eve]

This year, at Michael’s, I had to come back *out* to the truck for more money because I was...you guessed it...a dollar short at checkout...:))

[I think I have “Bell Ringer OCD”]....;]

United Fund/United Way. Many but not all, support planned parenthood, the second biggest organization of baby killers in the U.S.

The first biggest being the democratic party.

Please consider Goodwill Industries as well as the Salvation Army for your donations. Goodwill helps make tax payers out of tax consumers by providing job training to folks with disabilities and disadvantages. It's a great conservative charity because it teaches personal responsibility and gets people off of welfare and into the workforce.

OMG! I didn’t know this. The company that I work for is right now collecting money for the March of Dimes up until May I think. I just donated 5 bucks for a baked potato lol. Money will be raised from each department. Each department will raise money either from a garage sale, food sales, bake sales, etc.

Now that I know about this, I will boycott and let my other coworkers know about this.

All this time, I thought March of Dimes was going into research for babies health. Now I see what they have their intention to do in curing ailments in babies.

"Then I tell them why and they look....well, stupefied."

Yup - same look I get when I tell people that they kill babies in abortion clinics - just doesn't seem to register - that same stupified blank stare.

We stopped donating to United Way back in the 80s when that info came out. I hate the way they get you over a barrel with employers also. It’s none of an employers business if and to whom you donate. It should be illegal for them to even take it out of your check, it allows too much pressure to be put on an employee to donate to charities they disagree with.

When I was fifteen, making 75¢ an hour at a fast food restaurant, they told me they’d fire me if I didn’t contribute to United Way. I did that year, but I’ve never contributed another dime.
