Posted on 09/17/2003 5:13:33 PM PDT by madprof98
The waiting room of a Pittsburgh clinic is covered with rows of pink paper hearts with messages on them. But it's not Valentine's Day.
"To my little angel," reads one, "You will always be my baby. I will see you in heaven, sweetheart. I love you!" This message, like the others, is addressed to a freshly aborted baby.
These paper hearts are the brainchild of the November Gang, a small network of abortion clinics who want to help women see the softer side of fetal dismemberment. Much to the chagrin of pro-life organizations, the Gang was recently profiled in Glamour magazine.
Established in November 1989, the Gang recognized how alienated some women felt when they listened to the pro-choice movement's impersonal rhetoric on abortion, which was just regarded as a surgery.
But to the Gang, choosing abortion is sort of like puberty. The process can be complicated and painful, but it's often liberating and beneficial in the end.
Before an abortion at a Gang-affiliated clinic, a counselor will ask the woman how she feels about abortion and then "echo her language" from there. If the woman uses words like "baby," the counselor won't disagree. However, if a patient calls her fetus "a bunch of cells," the Gang won't talk about "stuff that's not there," as one Texas clinic owner put it.
In other words, the objective reality of stopping an unborn child's heart is irrelevant. What is important is how the woman feels about it. And if the November Gang can gently steer her feelings toward rationalizing the abortion while erasing her guilt and worries, they have another pink heart to add on the wall.
This isn't to say the Gang forces women to abort. If the patient describes abortion as murder, the clinic will suggest that the woman wait and think about her decision.
But Gang counselors carefully direct questions in a way that could make a spin-doctor's head spin. One question they often use is, "Can you see abortion as a 'loving act' toward your children and yourself?"
And when a churchgoing young woman asked whether God will forgive her for "killing my baby," the counselor asked, "Do you think there are any things that God considers completely unforgivable?" A moment later, the woman shook her head.
(There was obviously no mention of Jesus' command in the Gospels that "You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.")
But the November Gang doesn't only rely on manipulative words. They also engage in a series of bizarre rituals that brainwash their clients into thinking that abortion is loving and compassionate.
Aside from the heart-shaped Valentines ritual, religious women are encouraged to mock Christian beliefs as they give "baptisms" to their aborted child by sprinkling holy water over its mangled corpse (euphemistically called "fetal tissue" in the Glamour article).
The Gang glows over their strategy's success. "It's wonderful to see someone, perhaps for the first time, making a choice based on love for herself and belief in herself and not simply letting life happen to her," said one member.
But life didn't just "happen" to these women. None of the women quoted in the article claimed they were raped or were in mortal danger by carrying a child. But two women said they became pregnant because the Pill failed for them.
By choosing to gamble on contraception and then consciously choosing to have sexual intercourse, these women chose to have "life" happen to themselves. But the unborn children had no choice in the matter.
In fact, for an article entitled, "Are You Ready to Really Understand Abortion," it sure doesn't go much into the actual abortion part.
It doesn't really describe how the November Gang tenderly destroys an unborn child by sucking it up in a vacuum, or how the unborn is lovingly hacked into bacon bits with a curette.
And it doesn't mention that the child's limbs begin moving at eight weeks, or that it starts leaping in the womb at 11-12 weeks, according to an article last weekend from London's Guardian newspaper.
But who can blame Glamour? Info like that might cause their readers to smear their L'Oreal.
I can't judge the November Gang on whether they think they truly care about women. But they certainly don't care about the unborn. Their "counseling," complete with its borderline human-sacrifice rituals, is more than misguided-it's satanic.
Like the serpent in the Garden of Eden, the Gang tempts a woman by assuring her, "Ye shall surely not die...ye shall be as gods." It promises godlike power to create one's own destiny through so-called "choice," even to the point of rationalizing self-interest above the concern for others.
Evil needn't manifest itself through blazing, bloody pentagrams. It manages to work quite well through pink paper hearts.
"abortion...can be complicated and painful, but it's often liberating and beneficial in the end."
'"Can you see abortion as a 'loving act' toward your children and yourself?"'
I am naturally not telling my daughters, one of whom is 6 months pregnant about this yet. They live together. The pregnant one would not be able to handle these stories.
While there's some sort of hope that this twisted act of worshipping one's murdered children after participating in their ritual sacrifice will virtually or completely end abortion in this country.....I'm not sure I can handle this either.
My oldest daughter was 10 or 11 weeks pregnant when she had her first ultrasound done. The little bugger (all 4 of us were in there) had his face turned toward the "camera"...and he wiggled those little arm buds and kicked those little leg buds and we ALL fell in love immediately. She's 6 months along now, and it IS a boy. And of course he kicks the tar out of her.
THIS is life. This is life HAPPENING.
In the words of the great George Putnam: "We are living in the age of insanity."
Shades of Carthage. Where they lovingly sacrificed their children to Baal-Hammon and Tanit.
It was so bad that the Romans found them morally repulsive.
I am going to go be sick now.
Studies confirming that the little ones begin feeling pain about the twelfth to fifteenth week, when the nervous system is active, pushed that lie onto the ashheap of pro-choice lies. In their desperation to keep their bloody rites actively adding more tragic women to the ranks of the baby sacrificers, the ingenious lie of placing liberty before right to life arose again, championed by the multitude of democrat politicians seeking to play the abortion card for votes ... they adopted the mantra 'a woman's right to choose' as their clarion call. But never do they finish the evil message, that they are defending 'a woman's right to choose a serial killer to slaughter her alive unborn child'.
As the truth of ghoulish killing methods like partial birth abortion came to public attention, the shift has been to insist that a woman must have a right to her privacy, to her reproductive rights. So far, few in opposition to the holocaust have effectively exposed this lie, that murdering an already alive child is not reproductive in nature and certainly ought not be a 'right'. But as evidenced on the floor of the United States Senate today and yesterday, the party that depends on abortion killing to maintian a constituency (the democrats) hangs on tenaciously to this calculated lie. 'Sin'ator Boxer even had the nerve to claim the right to a partial birth infanticide is founded in the Griswald case regarding contraception!
With this most recent devlopment from the demons of Hell into the demented minds of the defenders of the indefensible, we have the democrat party influence (their obsequious liberalism) once again composing an outrageous message designed to manipulate American pregnant women into hiring a serial killer to 'deal with the foreign tissue in her body'.
It appears that the lies have accomplished precisely what they were authored to do, dehumanize the children being killed, until the society and women in particular are so degenerated from their natural wisdom and intuition that they will acknowledge the child they are about to kill is in fact an alive fellow human being, but they have a legal right to kill that child and 'feel good about it'. Boxer, et al have accomplished their liebralization, bringing women to believe that a legal right is equal to a moral good, and guess who is doing everything of an obstructionist nature to continue a societal engineering stranglehold on the legal system!
I witnessed Evil strutting around on the Seanate floor today and yesterday, served in full by the names Boxer, Harkin, Murray, and opposed weakly by the names Santorum, DeWine, and Brownback. I didn't get to see the entire spectacle, which is fortunate, because I don't think God is too pleased with me for the obscenities I declared toward the evil parading on my television screen. Evil is always supported by lies, misdirection, and mischaracterizations. And the democrat party is more than happy to oblige as long as they gain political points in the process.
I am astonished that Tom Harkin, Patty Murray, and Barbara Boxer remain free of natural ailment, after their preformances as demonic servants! The blood of tens-of-thousands of innocent slaughter babies is upon those defending this indefensible evil done in the specious name of a woman's right to her reproductive privacy. But what hurts most is that my sad, declining nation doesn't appear to have a clue how far degenerated we've become, steeped in the evils of child sacrifice for convenience and expedience that democrat politicians wish to promote for empowerment. Their next move is to convince Americans that cannibalizing the earliest age of the human lifetime isn't really cannibalism. And Americans will fall for it for they are well prepared to be manipulated and grossly deceived. It will be sold as a benefit to those in need of the body parts, just as abortion on demand was sold as a necessity for woemn's reproductive privacy. But, my fellow Freepers, convenience abortion is murder and cannibalizing is cannibalism. But does anyone really care anymore?
I would bet real money that it has happened somewhere in America, that a removed baby with beating heart has been sealed up in an iced box and shipped off to a lab ... and if the trip isn't too far, I shudder to realize the heart might still be beating in that little one's breast when removed for research experiments and tissue harvesting.
Such is the nature of the fetal tissue harvesting industry. And there are labs across America gearing up to conceive individual human embryos (read individual human beings at their embryo gae in their individual lifetime) and dissect them for their body parts (their stem cells). Cloning for specific protein-matched individual beings is coming also, and the designer nature will be quite a lucrative industry.
