Murder in Las Vegas: Is it the Largest Mass Murder? 

Murder in Las Vegas: Is it the Largest Mass Murder? 
by JBS President Emeritus John F. McManus

The slaughter in Las Vegas has been labeled the “worst” mass murder in our nation’s last century. Is it worthy of such a classification? Reporters and commentators obviously insist that it is. Ordinary citizens, justifiably shocked by the deliberate killing of more than 59 and the wounding of hundreds more, have been persuaded to classify the grisly event by using the handiest superlative available. From coast to coast, in print and over the airwaves, nothing has ever been deemed more deserving of the term “worst.”

But wait! The most recent annual report produced by the London-based International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) admits that the IPPF was responsible for 1,094,679 abortions in 2016 alone. In the United States, Planned Parenthood snuffed out the life of 887 yet-to-be-born infants every day. Is this not worse than Stephen Paddock’s deadly rampage?

Planned Parenthood’s fans and pro-abortion partisans everywhere always claim that abortion isn’t murder. Life begins at birth, they insist, and extracting what can be found in a womb prior to birth is considered a relatively simple medical procedure. But these individuals, properly designated “pro-aborts,” produce no credible evidence to back up such claims. And science continues to demonstrate the terrifying absurdity of their falsehoods.

We are all supposed to be outraged at what occurred in Las Vegas – and in Orlando, San Bernardino, and Fort Hood where fewer were murdered. Okay, these murderous sprees are completely condemnable. But we’re also expected to demand that lawmakers outlaw private possession of weapons – not just semi-automatic military-style rifles but any weapon capable of firing a bullet into a fellow human’s body. Overlooked is the fact that no weapon ever shot a bullet by itself. Shootings are the work of shooters, not weapons.

We are also expected to accept the lies issued by PP leaders who insist that they are in business to provide “health care for women.” Aren’t half of abortion’s victims females? What kind of health care is it that deliberately terminates the lives of human beings? Overlooked in this discussion is the other PP practice whereby organs harvested from aborted fetuses are sold for profit. That these organs are taken from a live – yet to be born babe – and are salable only because they were extracted from living individuals lends credence to the argument that abortion is the taking of a life.

There’s even more to consider when assessing PP and its primary function. The organization receives approximately $500 million per year in federal funding. PP President Cecile Richards alone takes home close to $600,000 per year. This means that all U.S. taxpayers are forced to support an organization and its leader who terminate the lives of close to 900 innocent and yet-to-be-born infants every year. The killer in Las Vegas received no such handouts. And, as evil as his deed surely was, the average daily abortion toll racked up by PP exceeds the number of deaths caused by Paddock. Consider for a moment the momentous outrage if Paddock had been discovered to be a beneficiary of federal funding. The financing of his murderous spree was done with his own money. In contrast, government forces all taxpayers to finance PP and its leader.

During a 2016 hearing about taxpayer dollars being supplied to Planned Parenthood, Representative Diane Black (R-Tenn.) stated her outrage:

As a nurse for more than 40 years, I know that abortion is not healthcare and I am incensed that, year after year, my constituents see their money sent to Washington and distributed to organizations that promote or perform abortions all under the guise of “healthcare” services.

Ms. Black is as qualified as anyone to know that abortion takes the lives of innocent babes. Yet, federal funding for Planned Parenthood continued.

What happened in Las Vegas was absolutely horrible. But, as bad as it unquestionably was, designating it as the past century’s worst killing overlooks a far more deadly termination of innocent life – not in a single day, but daily.

After A Century, Planned Parenthood Needs to be Shut Down

After A Century, Planned Parenthood Needs to be Shut Down
by JBS President Emeritus John F. McManus

On the 100th anniversary of Planned Parenthood, one of its greatest cheerleaders sent five separate messages to celebrate the significant milestone. Interrupting her election campaign, Hillary Clinton sent out several tweets that either praised or defended the organization that has slaughtered 59 million babies in the womb since 1973.

One of those messages sent via her computer (a non-secured instrument this time!) stated as follows: “I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood. I’ll never stop fighting to protect the ability of every woman in this country to make her own health decisions.” She conveniently avoided the fact that half of the victims of abortion are females needing only time and nourishment to be able to reach womanhood in a few years. They won’t enjoy the protection she mentioned. Mrs. Clinton also equated terminating life in the womb with otherwise normal health decisions. Abortion surely doesn’t allow the victim a choice, and it surely isn’t good for his or her health.

Started a century ago as the American Birth Control League, Planned Parenthood is the legacy of Margaret Sanger (1879-1966). A prominent eugenicist (the word comes from the Greek meaning “wellborn”), she sought to rid the nation of the “unfit” by which she initially meant Negroes, Hispanics, and Jews. Her goal would be achieved by forcing down the birth rate of the unwanted classes. One of her tactics included the use of deception. She told a financial supporter of her plan to recruit “colored minsters” to do her work. Explaining, she stated, “We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs….” (See Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right, a 1974 book by rabid pro-abortionist Linda Gordon.)

As late as November 1939 (two months after Germany launched World War II and several years after its campaign against Jews had begun, Sanger’s Birth Control Review was still commending the Nazi campaign. Almost simultaneously, the Sanger campaign began to target Catholic immigrants to the United States, another group deemed “unfit.”

Beginning in 1970, Planned Parenthood started receiving federal grants, now totaling more than $500 million per year. The organization claims that none of the taxpayer dollars it receives are used to perform abortions. Even if that claim is accurate, the government funding it receives makes easier the use of other funding to kill babes in the womb. In 2015, some determined anti-abortion crusaders videotaped admissions by Planned Parenthood officials that they were selling the body parts of recently aborted babies. An uproar over that grisly practice led to a congressional attempt to defund the organization, a failed effort due to President Obama’s veto and the congressional inability to override it. Similar congressional moves to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that opened the floodgates for abortion have also failed.

Over its history, besides being pro-Nazi, Planned Parenthood has shown itself to be anti-black, anti-Hispanic, anti-Catholic, and anti-Jewish. Yet within these groups of Americans are millions who support the Clinton candidacy. Meanwhile, the mass media that refuses to report the truth about Planned Parenthood and its Sanger-inspired efforts chooses to paint her opponent with unsavory labels, many of which are unfounded.

One reason why the murder of innocent babes in the womb continues is that the practice has now involved millions of women and men. There is a wide lessening of disgust for a practice that, prior to 1973, was almost universally deemed abhorrent in America. This trend will only grow worse if the very prominent cheerleader for Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton, becomes America’s next president.

Death Via Abortion Far Exceeds Toll in Orlando

Death Via Abortion Far Exceeds Toll in Orlando
by JBS President Emeritus John F. McManus

During the early hours of June 12, 2016, a nightclub frequented by the LGBT minority in Orlando, Florida, became the scene of death for 49 of its patrons. They were slaughtered by Omar Mateen, a hate-filled American who made sure everyone knew that his death-dealing rampage stemmed from his radical Islamic beliefs.

“A young girl holds up a pro-life sign at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. (2013)”–photo from Miss Monica Elizabeth, some rights reserved.

Mass media covered the gruesome story for several days. Time magazine actually named the 49 victims on its cover while radio and television spewed news of the tragic event day and night. Clearly the act of a terrorist, the Orlando massacre shocked the nation and the world. One of its consequences saw a rise in sympathy for homosexual and transgender lifestyles. Another saw a sharp increase in the number who believe a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms should be made more difficult, if not completely terminated. And a third, boosted by awareness that such crimes will continue and grow more numerous, saw many more Americans agree to allow our nation to slide more deeply into acceptance of the political goals of terrorists.

The mass murder in Orlando was indeed horrific. But there are a great many more deliberately caused deaths in America (and in many other nations) as a result of abortion. Figures supplied by the Guttmacher Institute and others note that more than a thousand abortions occur every day in the United States. Not all, but a large number of these terminations of life in the womb are carried out at Planned Parenthood facilities. Estimates place the number of lives snuffed out in the United States since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision at 59 million. With the arrival of the morning-after pill that terminates a pregnancy within days of conception, there are now uncounted additional numbers snuffed out.

Why no daily outrage aimed at this grisly practice? Why no massive media coverage of the deliberate deaths of so many unborn babes needing only a few more unmolested months before they are born? They have committed no crime. All they need to survive is more time left alone in the womb.

With others, we mourn the untimely and brutal deaths of the Orlando 49. But we also mourn the far greater numbers of those murdered via the various methods producing abortions. We don’t accept the absurd claims of many that life in the womb isn’t life, or that real life begins only at birth. Finally, we look forward to a day when abortion at any stage of life is properly treated as a crime, a label justly applied when our nation began its life almost 200 years ago.

Which is Worse: Abortion or a Fake Driver’s License?

Which is Worse: Abortion or a Fake Driver’s License?
by JBS President Emeritus John F. McManus

Over the past few months, videos of Planned Parenthood personnel agreeing to sell body parts of aborted fetuses commanded the nation’s attention. There is no doubt in the mind of most who saw the interviews of these Planned Parenthood employees that they were marketing the hearts, kidneys, and other organs of recently alive infants.

Following the showing of those interviews, protests from abortion partisans pointed out that the interviews were “secretly” recorded as if that were the real issue. True enough that secrecy was employed, but that was to be expected. Journalists regularly use such a tactic to get the “drop” on people with whom they disagree – as Mitt Romney found out prior to being defeated in 2012. Planned Parenthood employees would never admit to a known journalist that they were harvesting and selling the parts of babies. The videographers posed as customers and their taping had to be done secretly.

When members of the U.S. House of Representatives saw some of the tapings, they voted 240-181 to cease sending any taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood, a justifiable move. Planned Parenthood actually received $553 million from the federal government in 2014, a large portion of which, despite claims to the contrary, enabled the organization to provide abortions. There is no doubt that if the House measure ever reaches President Obama, he will promptly veto it. The number of outraged members of Congress isn’t lopsided enough to override such a veto.

Nevertheless, Congress has considered the matter serious enough to create its own investigation. A special House committee has been formed to look into abortion and related practices, including the marketing of infant body parts by Planned Parenthood. Headed by Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), the panel’s spokesman has announced that investigations are underway, but there will be no conclusions reached until December, after the November elections.

A Texas grand jury looking into the matter concluded surprisingly that Planned Parenthood had done no wrong and, instead, indicted the two videographers, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt. They were charged with a felony, the tampering of a driver’s license. And Daleiden was further charged with seeking to purchase fetal tissue. Yes, he created a phony license and yes, he admitted telling Planned Parenthood personnel of his desire to purchase what they were selling. He didn’t really want some body parts of infants torn from a woman’s womb. And he felt it necessary to hide his real identity with the marked-up license. He got what he set out to obtain and people throughout the nation saw televised evidence of Planned Parenthood personnel negotiating such deals.

Planned Parenthood officials now say they will no longer take money for marketing body parts, though they will still supply them for “research.” Defending themselves from the bad publicity generated by what has been shown of the secretly taped interviews, they have labeled Daleiden and Merritt “extreme” anti-abortion activists. In their view, abortion and marketing body parts taken from aborted fetuses isn’t extreme, nor is abortion itself worthy of such an adjective. But anyone who is opposed to abortion can expect to be so labeled.

Planned Parenthood has long been the nation’s largest abortion provider. Since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision opening the floodgates of the grisly practice, the lives of more than 50 million babies have been terminated in the so-called “land of the free.” Planned Parenthood’s abortion business does operate within the law established by that decision. The mentality driving the nation’s chief abortion provider contends that whatever the Supreme Court says is okay. That’s all they’ve ever needed. So the real issue here is the Roe v. Wade decision that ought to be overturned because life begins at conception and the taking of a life once conceived is nothing else but murder. Although murdering a child in the womb has been granted legality, it surely fails the test of morality.

Unless the charges against Daleiden and Merritt are dropped, they could end up being the only criminals associated with the horrifying practice they exposed. Abortion and the side practice of sharing body parts of infants will be granted additional legality. And should the current thinking hold, doctoring a driver’s license in order to expose what Planned Parenthood does with funding that it obtains from the American people surely will be considered the greater crime.

What’s happening here is akin to focusing on a mass murderer’s parking ticket and letting him go free because of a technicality in the filming of his taking a handicapped space for which he had no permit.

Black Lives Do Matter, Beginning in the Womb

Black Lives Do Matter, Beginning in the Womb
by JBS President John F. McManus

Doctor Elizabeth Lee Vliet is an outspoken opponent of abortion. A veteran physician, she has appeared as a guest on numerous television and radio shows, and has delivered speeches in many parts of our nation. She points out that all doctors are supposed to abide by the famous Oath of Hippocrates, composed by the celebrated Greek physician who lived from 460 to 380 B.C.

Planned Parenthood was begun by Margaret Sanger in 1916 (Photo by Underwood & Underwood [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons).

The Oath is summarized by most as simply “Do no harm.” That’s accurate, but it spells out several types of harm that a doctor is supposed to avoid. A doctor, of course, is expected to be a healer, not a hurter; a life protector, not a killer. The very existence of the Oath has helped doctors gain a reputation for nobility.

Doctors graduating from medical schools are expected to take the Oath containing less than 300 words. Some medical schools have their graduates swear the oath while assembled in a group. It contains only a few prohibitions, one of which states: “I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and in like manner I will not give a woman a pessary to produce abortion. “ (A pessary is the term used in the pre-Christian era for a device used to produce an abortion.)

Some medical schools have replaced this specific mention of abortion with. “I will perform no operation for a criminal purpose.” If, therefore, a Supreme Court decision removes the criminality of destroying life in the womb, that’s OK according to the newly written Hippocratic Oath. The clear prohibition against abortion written more than two millennia ago by the man who is rightly labeled the Father of Medicine has been superseded in numerous medical schools.

A former director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, Dr. Vliet is outraged as she notes defenders of Planned Parenthood complaining that calling attention to the group’s practices amount to “attacking women” or “blocking women’s health.” After specializing in treating women for over 25 years, she declares with stern emphasis, “Abortion is not health care. It is death, the antithesis of life.”

Yet, notes the good doctor, Planned Parenthood receives $500 million from the federal government every year. And the group performs nearly 330,000 abortions yearly. And, while demonstrators in places like Ferguson, Missouri, carry signs claiming “Black Lives Matter,” there are no signs noting that more than 50 percent of the victims of abortion are Black or Hispanic.

Planned Parenthood was begun by Margaret Sanger in 1916. A proud eugenicist, Sanger is idolized by today’s feminists. But she stated: “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” She termed Slavs, Latins, and Jews “human waste, a menace” to her idea of who should be allowed to live. She is credited by many as having paved the way for Hitler and his Master Race.

Secretly recorded interviews of Planned Parenthood officials discussing their marketing of body parts of aborted babies have recently evoked cries of foul play from the abortionists and their promoters. Rather than try to defend the ugliness of what they are doing, they attempt to shift the argument to the clandestine interviewers. They should not be allowed to do so.

In Congress, moves to bar supplying funds to Planned Parenthood have hit a brick wall, though some angry lawmakers intend to continue the effort to stop taxpayer funding of murder in the womb. They may have to overcome resistance from House Speaker John Boehner because one of his top assistants, Charlotte Ivancic, is the sister of a woman named Cate Dyer who happens to be CEO of Stem Express, the company that buys the organs of aborted infants from Planned Parenthood.

“Women’s health,” says Dr. Vliet, should be focusing “on life and health.” It should not be seeking ways to defend killing millions of unborn human beings. “Abortion ends the life of a baby,” says this doctor, adding that “if it isn’t a baby, then the woman isn’t pregnant.”

Planned Parenthood’s Grisly Practices Worse Than Massive Abortion

Planned Parenthood’s Grisly Practices Worse Than Massive Abortion
by JBS President John F. McManus

In November 1970, two years and several months before the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, The John Birch Society published its attitude about abortion. Its widely circulated statement, never retracted or softened, pulled no punches while asserting:

Abortion is murder. When, therefore, we note the cries for relaxation of laws prohibiting abortion, liberalized attitude toward abortion, or abortion on demand, we read instead, relaxation of laws prohibiting murder, liberalized attitude toward murder, or murder on demand.

Yes, there were “legal” abortions being performed in a few states prior to the Supreme Court’s 1973 ruling. States where abortion had been “legalized” were classified by many as outcasts or worse. But once the 7-2 Court decision destroyed all state laws banning the practice, the number of abortions skyrocketed. Since 1973, the lives of more than 57 million infants have been snuffed out.

The largest U.S.- based agency committing this crime, with facilities throughout the nation, is Planned Parenthood (Image from Flickr by Fibonacci Blue Some rights reserved).

The largest U.S.- based agency committing this crime, with facilities throughout the nation, is Planned Parenthood. Not only has the highest court in our nation given a green light to these baby killers, Planned Parenthood receives federal funding that fuels such work. In the single year of 2014, for instance, Planned Parenthood received $528 million taken from taxpayers, many of whom intensely abhor the practice. In that year, the number snuffed out in the womb by Planned Parenthood totaled 327,000. These were all live infants needing only a few more weeks of not being molested before they could exist outside their mother’s womb. That Americans allow this to occur, and allow themselves to be taxed to fund it, is a severe indictment of our entire nation.

Defenders of Planned Parenthood like to focus on mammograms and cancer screenings, which they claim to supply. Yes, Planned Parenthood does such beneficial work. But its main effort is abortion. And now, it has been shown that Planned Parenthood harvests healthy organs from aborted infants and sells them for profit. Asked about this at a press conference after video tapings of the organization’s officials containing admissions of such a practice surfaced, White House spokesman Josh Earnest defended Planned Parenthood insisting that the organization has “high ethical standards.” Selling the parts of murdered infants doesn’t merit being included in any real “high ethical standards.” Instead the practice merits being classified as a Hitlerian criminal act.

The Obama White House has been especially chummy with Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards. According to CNS News, she has been welcomed to the White House 39 times during the Obama presidency – including four one-on-one visits with the President, two with his spouse, four with both Obamas, and the rest with a variety of the President’s assistants including Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Burwell. Defending Planned Parenthood, Ms. Burwell pointed to preventive care such as mammograms. The problem is that most of the Planned Parenthood facilities performing abortions don’t have equipment for mammograms.

Kentucky Senator Rand Paul pointed to the $10,000 campaign contribution supplied by Planned Parenthood to presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. The poll-leading Mrs. Clinton states, “I’m proud to stand with Planned Parenthood.” She has to know that this organization was founded by Margaret Sanger who should be known as one of the worst racists that ever claimed to be an American.

Planned Parenthood should not receive a penny of federal aid. Legalization of abortion must be abolished. And Americans must get back to being a place where all living humans, including those living in the womb, are treated as real persons.

Hillary’s Abortion Promotion at International Women’s Day

Hillary’s Abortion Promotion at International Women’s Day
by JBS President John F. McManus

As everyone knows – or certainly should know by now – Hillary Clinton expects to be the Democratic Party’s nominee for President in 2016. Repeatedly questioned about her future plans, she has avoided declaring her intentions while enjoying the attention being paid her.

Never unwilling to accept a speaking engagement, she recently addressed a gathering at United Nations headquarters in New York. The event was International Women’s Day and the former Secretary of State used her opportunity at the podium to champion “women’s reproductive rights.” That, of course, means abortion.

Support for terminating life in the womb is nothing new for Mrs. Clinton. She worked with her husband while he was President (1993-2001) to persuade numerous countries to legalize the practice. She also backed abortion during her term as a U.S. Senator from New York and then as Secretary of State, the post she voluntarily left in 2012.

According to a Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) report about her appearance at the UN, the heavy favorite to carry the Democratic banner in the 2016 election claimed: “You cannot make progress on gender equality or broader human development without safeguarding” the right to terminate a pregnancy. C-FAM noted that she received thunderous applause when insisting that equality for women continues to be “the great unfinished business of the 21st century.” Of course, her notion of “equality” for women includes snuffing out the lives of a million pre-born babies each year, half of whom are females needing only to be left alone in the womb until natural birth.

Abortion remains a horrible blight on humanity, something in which our own nation participates. In 2012, for instance, Planned Parenthood in the U.S. claimed performing 329,445 “abortion procedures.” As television commentator Brit Hume wryly noted, this organization has a bizarre way of employing the word “parenthood.”

Mrs. Clinton’s enthusiasm for abortion will not be challenged within the Democratic Party during her run to become the nation’s first female president. She will never acknowledge her own mother’s unwillingness to terminate her life before birth. We can only hope that more Americans begin to understand that snuffing out life in the womb is wrong, and that it will be followed inevitably by the taking of life that is too old, or too unproductive, or too something else.

Life remains sacred even if it isn’t considered so by many political figures. It deserves government protection, not destruction while government looks the other way. Because Mrs. Clinton is one of the loudest cheerleaders for killing babes in utero, she should be considered dangerous and shunned, not applauded as though she were a champion of just causes.

This is merely one in a long list of reasons why the United States needs to get out of the United Nations. Learn more at our “Get US Out! of the United Nations” action project page.
