I have been reading about yet another case where an abortionist has killed a woman in a botched abortion. It’s a common story. There is even a movie about it: the Gosnell movie about serial killer abortionist Kermit Gosnell.
If you are connected with the prolife movement online, you hear these stories all the time. But you know what I never hear? I’ve never heard a single story where a woman or girl has died from a botched adoption.
Adoption is the unspeakable option to the point that when people are advocating for the kill-babies-by-abortion movement, they never mention that option. It’s either abort right now for a big fee at our Planned Parenthood clinic, or have the baby and quit school and be a single mom. What happened to the adoption option?
Adoption is the safe option. Why don’t we speak about this? Having an abortion is like smoking a cigarette (tobacco or other,) mainlining heroin, or eating sugar right from the bag by the tablespoonful. It’s a health risk we don’t have to take!
It’s a win-win situation. You get a loving home for your baby, you get to finish school and live your life, and you have the option of making yourself available when the kid grows up and having a relationship with the kid. And you don’t have to change a single diaper!
It’s becoming clearer to me that the feminism/pro-abort movement isn’t about helping women, it’s about making money for abortion clinic chains like Planned Parenthood. Because if you cared about the actual women/girls and their physical and mental health, you would at least not ban mention of the adoption possibility.

The other day a bunch of indoctrinated school children marched out of class, probably with adult encouragement, to demand more Gun Defenselessness laws. They claim only more Gun Defenselessness laws will keep them safe.
Since people willing to break the law in a mass shooting are also willing to steal guns or buy them illegally if they have to, the Gun Defenselessness laws only affect the kind of people who would defend people from a mass shooter. One early school shooting was stopped by a teacher who went out to his locked car to retrieve his hunting gun. That action would now be illegal because of gun-free school laws.
Some people think that schools can be safe if armed police officers are forced to run into shooting scenes without knowing if they are running in to the line of fire. There is not enough money in the world to force police officers to do that. Nor will they be willing to search all American homes to search for guns— the only way Gun Defenselessness laws will affect the gun supply. You can’t pay people enough to sacrifice their lives uselessly.
Several mass shootings have taken place in buildings that proclaim themselves gun-free zones. Of course. Shooters don’t care to be shot back at.
Another proposal is to demonize people who have ever sought therapy of any sort, since they might be ‘mentally ill.’ Most mentally ill people are not dangerous, and a military veteran who went to marriage counselling should not lose his right to hunt and to protect himself with guns.
Statistics show there is actually more ‘gun crime’ in locations with a lot of gun defenselessness laws. Places where a lot of law-abiding people own guns have less ‘gun crime’ and violent crime. Because criminals are afraid of getting shot.
Gun Defenselessness laws make people less safe, even though they may feel safer because they have been indoctrinated. Let us hope that the indoctrinated children will somehow learn how to think logically and check their facts before they get to voting age.
Recently I bought and read a book called ‘Law & Disorder: Inside the Dark Heart of Murder’ by John Douglas, a pioneering FBI profiler. In one of the cases he covered in the book, he touched on the one-time hysteria over the concept of Satanism and Satanic murders.
At the height of the craze, Satanic ‘experts’, often Evangelical pastors or laymen, claimed that there were fifty thousand child abductions a year, mostly, it was implied, due to Satanists and their blood lust. Douglas said the statistic was about right, but the majority of those cases were kidnappings by a non-custodial parent.
Satanic ‘experts’ kept the fear up by making lists of Satanic symbols, many of which had other purposes, confusing Satanism with Wicca and Neopaganism, and declaring that young persons who were fans of Heavy Metal music, or who played games such as Dungeons & Dragons, were probably doing so because such things were ‘Satanic.’
The reality, as John Douglas’s FBI statistics show, is there was NOT ONE case in which one or more persons in a Satanic group or coven conspired to commit a murder. There were individual killers, such as the Night Stalker, who claimed to be inspired by Satan or who had Satanic-seeming tattoos, or who said that the Devil caused them to commit the crime in question. But these loners were nothing like what the Satanic hysteria claimed was happening.
The problem is that many Christians, particularly Evangelical ones, read books or heard sermons that made them believe in the Satanic ritual killings theory. Some took ‘facts’ from this and put them into spiritual warfare stories. Others to this day believe it because a sweet old pastor told them it was true back in the day, and their sweet old pastor, now gone to his reward, would not have lied to them.
But sweet old pastors and devout Christian mentors can be mistaken. If the pastor heard false information from a Christian source they felt was trustworthy, they may have passed it on thinking it was fact. In the same way, a sweet old lady teacher I had in a Christian school once told me that God refuses to listen to the prayers of Catholics because Catholicism was so ‘unchristian.’ While I am convinced that this lady would not have lied to me, I now believe her belief was wrong, that God would not have allowed Christianity to vanish from the Earth from the Early Church days until the ‘Reformation’, and that God listens to all prayers, even those from persons who have very little knowledge of religious truth.
Now, I know Spiritual Warfare novels are popular among some Christians. But the facts are important. While I was a Neopagan and rejecting Christianity, I read a book by Frank Peretti which seemed to me to be demonizing Neopagans and was very ill-informed. This book pushed me even further away from Christianity by these errors. Not, I expect, the effect the writer was going for.
By now you’ve heard about the shooting at a church in Sutherland Springs, TX. There were about 26 people killed and 20 wounded by a shooter who had been in trouble for domestic violence.
But the hero of the day was a person who lived near the church who, when he heard shooting, grabbed his ‘assault rifle’ (deer hunting gun, probably) and ran toward the shooting. He fired shots at the assailant and hit him, and the shooter drove away from the scene. One wonders how many more might have died except for this brave man’s heroism.
But of course the anti-Second Amendment crowd didn’t wait for the bodies to cool before they DEMANDED more anti-gun laws. Laws that would have made these church people even more defenseless. People in upper-class, big-city neighborhoods don’t understand this, but in rural and small-town America, the nearest police are often 20 or 30 minutes away. But as long as we have the 2nd Amendment intact, at least we can choose to protect ourselves and our neighbors.
One troubling thing I’ve heard was that the shooter was wearing body armor. Now, if someone is willing to shoot a lot of innocent people dead in church he will probably be willing to get guns, ammo and body armor illegally if he can’t get it legally. Murderers are just not that law-abiding that they would worry about illegal purchases. But the hero who confronted the shooter was in greater danger than he knew. Thank God that this brave man was not shot or killed before he could get the shooter to flee away from his victims.
I would think that one way to honor the hero, besides NOT demonizing him and other gun owners by demonizing the gun owners grass-roots organization, the NRA, is for each of us to learn more about guns. The NRA may have gun safety classes in your area. The more of us who know how to protect ourselves with guns, the harder we make life for would-be criminals.
OK, DACA is now sacrosanct. Even the Pope seems to say so. No matter that it was an illegal program not passed by Congress. We don’t need no stinking rule-of-law anymore!
But think about the implications. Imagine you are a non-US citizen living on a low income, and you have kids. If you have an opportunity to immigrate illegally, don’t you have moral duty to your children to bring them to the US so they can benefit from the now sacrosanct DACA? Because you don’t know whether your kids will want to come to the US as adults. If they do, they may not have the chance to do it legally. So bring the kids now when they have a chance!
There is no downside really. Other than cutting off your children’s ties with their extended family and their nation. If a foreign parent really loves his kids and wants them to have better opportunities in life, isn’t this the best option available? So— should social service agencies in Mexico and other countries where illegal immigration to US is common take into account whether parents are planning to take advantage of DACA to determine if they are fit parents? If a parent says he would never become an illegal immigrant, should he lose parental rights to someone who will?
NOTE: I hate the way people refer to DACA beneficiaries as Dreamers, as in The American Dream? I remember when The American Dream applied to me, born in the US, and my maternal grandparents, legal immigrants. I’ll miss that dream.
NOTE AGAIN: Angry posts by Leftists accusing me of heresy get deleted. Disagreements should be civil and free from curse words.
It’s Celebrate the Small Stuff day, and today I’m celebrating serial killer H. H. Holmes. Unlike what you may have heard in the promos for a reality show on the ‘History’ channel, Holmes was NOT America’s FIRST serial killer. In fact I know there are a couple of female serial killers who came before him.
Holmes was also NOT Jack the Ripper. Holmes’ killings were of people he knew and there was a money motive involved as well as the sadism. Would he really stop his serial killing in the US, go off to commit 5 or so slayings in England using a totally different M. O. and earn the nickname Jack the Ripper, go back to the US and commit killings in his normal method, and never even drop a hint in his confession?
Holmes wrote a tell-all confession after he was caught, which included some abortions (“illegal operations”) he committed. He listed a lot of his victims— some of whom were found alive.
He was caught because he killed a partner in crime in an insurance scam, and then took off with three of the partner’s children in order to claim the insurance. The three children were murdered. There was a nation-wide manhunt for Holmes and the children, and he was caught, but too late for the children.
Holmes constructed a building later known as the Murder Castle. It had two rooms in which victims could be gassed to death, a chute to the basement where there was a gas oven which could cremate bodies, and a walk-in vault in which women were left to suffocate. He stripped the flesh from some bodies and sold the skeletons to medical schools.
H. H. Holmes seems like an odd fellow to celebrate. But it was an interesting case, Holmes was caught, and he was executed so he was unable to kill more people. And now his great-grandson has his own reality show from it. Which would be more of a thing to celebrate if they had hired an experienced historical researcher to help. But of course then they couldn’t link the case to Jack the Ripper.
Another thing— H. H. Holmes committed so many more murders than the Ripper that trying to prove Holmes was the Ripper is a little like the Beatles trying to prove that they were the Monkees.
