It’s been quite a week here in NYC. We had a great pro-life billboard, calling attention to the fact that 60% of African American pregnancies end in abortion, come down 24 hours after it went up. Thanks to some great thuggery by our proabort lobby, waitresses were reportedly abused in the building hosting the three-story banner simply because…

…they were waitresses working in the same building hosting the banner.

But the fun has only started for the merchants of death in fair Gotham. This coming Wednesday, the City Council is poised to pass a law that will hobble our pregnancy resource centers. So for our modern-day Margaret Sangers (Council Speaker Christine Quinn, Councilwoman Jessica Lappin) it’s a heady week. Evidently 60% of black pregnancies ending in abortion is an acceptable number for them.

Less intellectually and morally bankrupt individuals might look at those numbers and look for ways to lower them by doing things like the PRC’s do. But not our little darlings on the Women’s Issues Committee. They simply cannot permit themselves to join forces with those in the pro-life community and work toward commonsense solutions for a community beset by destructive forces that beggar the imagination.

The word is on the street now about the numbers. It will only continue to make the rounds and continue to permeate the consciences of all New Yorkers. Eventually, the rising tide of blood will drown the pathetic arguments of Quinn and company. It will become harder and harder for Quinn to explain her actions, actions made with the full knowledge of the numbers.

In politics, comedy has a way of becoming tragedy for the careers of those given to such base behavior. New Yorkers have great good sense and have a long history of sending scoundrels packing when they enter the ballot booth. That’s the beauty of our tradition of peaceful transition of power. We vote the bums out.

Better days are coming for our most disenfranchised citizens. As soon as New Yorkers have had the time to marinate in the truth, they’ll elect servants with the wisdom and decency to do what is right and just, and not what is most expedient.

Truth and Goodness will have the last laugh.

When Dr. George Tiller was murdered, there was a hastily gathered, yet spontaneous outpouring of grief in New York City’s Union Square. Many women carried the poster, pictured with its grief-stricken bearer to the left. How odd that this abortionist should have been grieved as no other.

But George Tiller was no mere abortionist. He was the best at taking post-viable infants and killing them in such a way as to minimize the risks to the mother.

His murder was as barbaric as his means of putting bread on his family’s table. Scott Roeder is where he belongs.

At the Rally: NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn

At the rally were the two key players in New York’s current war on Pregnancy Resource Centers, Christine Quinn (pictured right) and Councilwoman Jessica Lappin, who left the note pictured below. Talk about a world gone mad.

George Tiller was a false Messiah in every sense of the term. He didn’t bring hope, or healing into women’s lives. He pandered to their fears of motherhood while soothing their apprehensions surrounding the monstrous evil about to unfold. He murdered half the patients who came to him, and the futures of the half who survived.

And when a well-meaning, but equally murderous individual took Tiller’s life, those who champion the slaughter of innocents exploded in grief. That includes Council Members Quinn and Lappin.

When people claim that pro-life candidates don’t matter at the local and state level, look at the legislation being driven through the NYC Council. It does matter. It matters a great deal. Here we have two disciples of a martyred butcher who have set out to drive women from the very PRC doors that hold out hope.

Join us in our National Petition to defeat Lappin and Quinn’s efforts to establish legislation regulating PRC’s, legislation NARAL and Planned Parenthood intend to take all over the country. Join us in this national movement to push back against Tiller’s disciples. Click Here to visit our site and sign the petition.

God Bless

Carl Heinrich Bloch, "The Slaughter of the Innocents", Oil On Canvas

What would I have done? Would I have had the courage to stand against the tyrannical King who ordered the slaughter of innocents? Would I have helped Mary and Joseph, or any other mother and child escape the murderous wrath of a jealous King? I’d like to think that the answer is yes.

While there are far less severe dangers today, Herod has been eclipsed by an army of bloody tyrants who walk the corridors of power today. The Democrat party gives hundreds of millions of dollars annually to groups such as Planned Parenthood, who in turn lavish millions of dollars on… Democrats running for office. Of course, the agreement is that the price of power is babies must die.

Yes, I used the imperative.

No, it’s not melodramatic.

We have long since passed some academic right to choose abortion. The field of Obstetrics brings unrelenting pressure to bear on women who might be carrying a less than perfect child. Trisomic conditions are cause for summary execution. Women and men are brow-beaten, called selfish (and worse) for wanting to bring their special needs children into the world. If the baby is anencephalic, parents are called monsters for bringing the child to term.

No, it seems that there is a mandate now for abortion. And the list of those marked as unworthy of life continues to grow. Still, for some that’s not good enough.

Crisis Pregnancy Centers and Pregnancy Resource Centers are under assault in several states, with New York City being the most recent target. Chris Slattery started EMC Frontline Pregnancy Centers 25 years ago and has over 38,000 confirmed saves between our 12 centers.

That will not be allowed to stand if NARAL, Council Speaker Christine Quinn, and former PP deathscort and bill sponsor Jessica Lappin have their way. Their legislation is aimed at driving women away from our doors. Where to?

Right into the arms of our modern day Herods.

Choice? There can be no choice if abortion is the only option. By their own admission, Planned Parenthood only concerns themselves with contraception and abortion. They refer out for prenatal care (if the baby is lucky enough to make it out of PP alive). Choice died about 20 years ago. There is an imperative now, the growing movement to silence those of us who guarantee choice by providing viable alternatives.

Chris and I will be starting a petition drive this week that I hope all will take a moment to participate in. That’s the very least that each of us can do. It is how we can stand up to the Herods of our day and make our voices known. Like the One sought for death 2,000 years ago, these children are our salvation in so very many ways.

They ground us, make us face maturity by calling us to focus on their utter helplessness. They teach us the meaning of love. They teach us redemptive suffering. They save us from eternal adolescent narcissism, and draw us closer to God.

There is so much that we can do, and some of us are fighting this particular battle full time. But we need everyone’s help with the petition. In facing down Herod, the pen does quite nicely.

So as we begin to move closer to Christmas, to the timeless narrative of the Nativity, and the story of Herod’s evil, we should bear in mind that we are all called to do something about the slaughter of innocents in our day. The thousands who staff the more than 2,300 CPC’s and PRC’s save babies daily from the senseless slaughter unleashed on us by seven twisted men in 1973. They are the frontline shields between these babies and certain death.

I don’t know what I would have done then.

I do know what we are called to do now.

The petition is on its way.
