Pro-Abortion, Anti-Church Violence is Chilling

abortion

Chilling. That seems the only word for the Democratic Party’s visceral reaction to a leaked Supreme Court decision that would restore abortion regulation to the States. Likely reversal of Roe v. Wade, restoring States’ rights to pre-1973, has triggered direct threats of mass violence. Chilling.

Democrat activists, knowing intimidation of or harm done to just one U.S. Supreme Court justice would change abortion calculus – and hundreds of decisions – threatened to confront justices at their homes. 

While this is illegal and should immediately have produced a warning from the U.S. Department of Justice, the White House, and anyone in the Democrat Party who cares about the rule of law, America experienced the opposite: The Biden White House implicitly gave the “go” to this illegality.

Next, on Mother’s Day – of all days, given abortion ending the miracle of motherhood – a group called
Ruth Sent Us” (a reference to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg) threatened to overrun churches across the country, nominally Catholic Churches, but likely any church opposing abortion.

Ironically, the late justice was Jewish and a close friend of Catholic Justice Antonin Scalia. They would both be appalled. To threaten a house of faith is an abomination.

That offense then deepened, as the threat moved to doing violence within churches, including “burning the eucharist,” that is seeking to intentionally destroy the sacrament of Holy Communion. Where are the Democrats?

Where are Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, Jewish, or Muslim Democrats – who know such threats of egregious violence are wrong? Where are those who believe – even atheists – in the First Amendment?

As history is our teacher, this turn of events is not just wrong and repulsive to democracy – but ominous. Not only did a Supreme Court opinion get stolen and released, impairing the Court’s integrity, judicial independence, and the rule of law, but that leak – like threatened violence – was not condemned.

As the draft opinion was objectionable to leading Democrats, the next step was to ramp up threats that began in late 2021. After the violent riots of 2020, which sought to disparage, demoralize, and defund law enforcement, Democrat Senators began threatening the Supreme Court over Roe.

Specifically, Democrat Senator from NH Jeanne Shaheen threatened Roe’s reversal would trigger a “revolution,” while Democrat Majority Leader Chuck Schumer threatened justices who voted to overturn Roe would “pay.” Exactly what kind of “revolution,” and how would they “pay?”

Now, we begin to see what was being planned, as violence is now a Democrat tool-of-choice. Intimidation by overt and insinuated threats, illegal protests at private residences (after Supreme Court families were doxed, White House silent on the illegality), elevated concerns over the safety of justices, deep concerns in US churches that they will be overrun (leading to ramped up security) are all real.

What does this remind you of? Perhaps the Soviet Union? Communist Chinese attacks on religion, churches, and those who oppose leftist violence? When one says “revolution,” that word has real meaning, even if not accompanied by modifiers like Bolshevik, Maoist, Marxist, or French.

French? Yes, how about we start there. What does a revolution – even a non-Communist one – look like? It is violent, intentionally, disruptively, and irreversibly violent. And what happens when churches – and those with strong moral beliefs, such as opposing abortion – are the object of the revolution?

Bad things. Examples are legion. While the American Revolution opposed the immorality of tyranny, concentrated government, over-taxation, and suppression of liberty – they drew strength from faith – even though it was violent. The atheistic Communist Revolutions in the Soviet Union and China killed tens of millions.

The French Revolution was like this pro-abortion, anti-state’s rights violence. It was directed at churches, and those of faith, anti-religious, like the communist Soviet Revolution also was – horrifically violent.

When churches are targeted by leftist violence, as in the French Revolution, things often go from bad to worse quickly – unless responsible, moral, rule-of-law leaders step up and firmly stop the violence. In the French Revolution, distant but instructive for venom toward churches and faith, things got dark.

By way of example, thousands of clergy members were killed, and hundreds of churches were defaced, destroyed, and left in ruins. Holy and valuable religious symbols taken, church holidays, and displays of the cross banned. Things moved fast; the September 1792 massacres killed hundreds of priests over two days.

Could such a thing happen here? Let us hope not, as that was two-and-a-quarter centuries ago, and America still has funded police, people who respect the First Amendment protections for religion and the rule of law. 

But make no mistake, those who boldly advance chaos, anarchy, and anti-religious leftism do not respect your faith, churches, or the conviction of many, including Supreme Court justices, that abortion is wrong and, for starters, not protected by the Constitution. Anti-faith violence is ominous and chilling.

Just goes to show that nothing is off limits to the socialist democrats. They are calling good evil and evil good, a violent protest a peaceful protest, etc., etc, etc.

The current controversy concerning abortion seems to center on two questions: When does human life begin? And is aborting a pregnancy the equivalent of murder?

For those who acknowledge that Almighty God is the author of life, we might look to the first five books of the Bible, Torah, the only books having legitimate claim to being the word of God. In Genesis 2:7 “The LORD God formed man from the dust of the earth. He blew into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” This establishes that breath is essential to be a living being. 

The other question bandied about is whether it is a crime to abort a pregnancy. That is settled at Exodus 21:22 – 25, the only place in the entire Bible which mentions an aborted pregnancy. In this case a man has pushed a pregnant woman and caused her to miscarry. The penalty is described as a fine paid to the woman’s husband, the amount reckoned as a property crime. Noteworthy is the fact that this follows the institution of the death penalty for murder at Exodus 21:12 “He who fatally strikes a man shall be put to death.” So clearly, aborting a pregnancy is not murder, there is no breath of life in the aborted fetus. The Roman Catholic Pope says otherwise, that abortion is murder; but you may recall that it was the first pope, Constantine, who presumed to overrule God by establishing Sunday as the Sabbath Day. 

You follow the pope’s pronouncements in contravention of God’s word to your peril.

In light of this Biblical guidance, it would seem only reasonable to abort an unwanted pregnancy in its early stages, long before the possibility of producing a breathing baby.

First of all Kitty, 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us “All Scripture is God-breathed…” not just the first five books of the Bible. Many people over many years and after much study and research have determined which writings are to be legitimately accepted as the word of God. However, since you have chosen to reject the majority of God’s revealed word, let’s just consider the portion of God’s word that you seem to be willing to accept.

Deuteronomy 4:2 and 12:32 warn against adding to or subtracting from God’s commands. You could argue that these two verses only apply to the commands given in those two passages, and all the other commands given throughout the rest of Deuteronomy can be added to or subtracted from as you see fit.

Or you could argue that these two verses apply to all of Deuteronomy, but all the commands given in the first four books of the Torah can be added to or subtracted from as you see fit.

Or you could be reasonable and logical and admit that these two verses reveal an eternal principle that God will not be pleased with anyone who adds to or subtracts from any of his words, including his words spoken through the Apostle Peter in 2 Peter 3:15-16, where Peter referred to Paul’s writings as Scripture.

2 Peter 3:16 speaks of people who distort the Scriptures to their own destruction, which brings us to your interpretation of Genesis 2:7. Yes, breath is essential to be a living being. But your interpretation of this verse denies that fish are living beings simply because they breathe differently than we do. It should be obvious that all living human beings have to breathe, even those in utero.

It’s not surprising you’d think Exodus 21:22 – 25 is speaking of someone accidentally causing a pregnant woman to have a miscarriage (although it’s a bit disingenuous to call it an abortion). Some Bible translations use the word ‘miscarriage’ but the more accurate translations call it a premature birth. For if there is no harm, then the penalty is described as a fine paid to the woman’s husband. But if the prematurely born child dies, “then you shall pay life for life.”

So you see Kitty, even the portion of the Bible that you consider ‘legitimate’ makes it abundantly clear that even the accidental killing of a baby is indeed murder (or manslaughter), whether the child is in or out of the womb.

In light of this Biblical guidance, it would seem only reasonable to stop deceiving women by telling them the outrageous lie that their babies are not really alive, so therefore stopping a baby’s little heart doesn’t actually kill a perfectly formed, growing baby. The very idea of a beating human heart circulating unoxygenated blood throughout a little baby’s body is silly.

At possibly the most stressful time in a woman’s life, she’s tricked into agreeing to allow a hired killer to murder her own child. She’s certainly not allowed to kill her baby, for if she does, Planned Parenthood will demand she be prosecuted because only hardened hired killers can legally commit abortion.

So even though the mother didn’t kill her child, she was deceived into allowing it to happen. What a heavy load to put on a person.

Typical for the democratic party when they are defeated in elections, blame the Conservatives and riot.

And you do remember when the parents protested the decisions by school board members AG Garland went after them as “Domestic Terrorists”. But now Biden and Garland do nothing about these protests in front of the judges houses even though there is a law against what these terrorists are doing. What if conservatives went there to protest what the protesters are doing? They would be attacked no doubt. I have a flashlight that also has a button on it to use it as a taser. Some states allow citizens to use tasers and others do not. Guns would not be a good thing to bring there but what about tasers to protect oneself?

Those that think that the Constitution protects a woman’s right to have abortion on demand are living in an alternative universe. They have no understanding of our forefathers. Even though women had abortions during the colonial times, the process was not a government sanctioned right.
Americans were not encouraged to kill babies, even within the womb. Our forefathers would be outraged to see that their precious Constitution is so shredded by Democrats, socialists, communists, etc. on a daily basis.

This goes back to “Maxie” Waters and her telling her terrorists to confront any Trump team member or Trump supporter back in 2016. They attacked Sen. Paul and everyday citizens all the time. They even assaulted teenagers wearing MAGA hats. DIMMs are the party of HATE and we all know who is the author of hate.

There is Federal Law against this type of protests at judges homes. The WH & AG need to step up to the plate & tell the protestors they have 12-hours to leave or they will be arrested & taken to jail & will face fed charges. Why doesn’t Biden stop this dangerous protest & protect the justices & families before somebody gets hurt. The mental damage to the justice families has already happened because AG will not enforce Federal Law.

The hangup here is that the democrats, who are pro-abortion, WANT the demonstrators to “stick it to” the Supreme Court and anyone who stands in their libtard way. They must not be allowed to win.

(Hickenlooper 05.11.2022) “Hey folks, As you probably heard, the Supreme Court is slated to overturn Roe v. Wade, undoing nearly 50 years of precedent.  This is simply unacceptable.
No politician or judge should make decisions over a woman’s body. That’s why today, I’m voting for the Women’s Health Protection Act, a bill that would make Roe v. Wade law and protect it from being overturned by the Supreme Court. 

(My response on Hickenlooper’s email form 05.11.22)
I received an email from your office regarding the Roe vs. Wade recent “”leaked”” decision.  

It was the Supreme Court action that ALLOWED this TRAVESTY for the last 50 years. 
“”Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113, was a landmark decision of the U.S. Supreme Court in which the Court ruled that the Constitution of the United States protects a pregnant woman’s liberty to choose to have an abortion without excessive government restriction.””

Now YOU say in an email: “””No politician or judge should make decisions over a woman’s body. That’s why today, I’m voting for the Women’s Health Protection Act, a bill that would make Roe v. Wade law and protect it from being overturned by the Supreme Court.”””

You are a POLITICIAN and have declared your intent to make decisions over a woman’s body by voting for the women’s health protection act.

I DO NOT support your view and/or decision. My prayer is that this “”leaked”” supreme court decision will stand without further political interference.

The question we should ask the prochoice groups and the extreme element in that group is “If your mother had an abortion, you would not be here to protest”, and in numbers of aborted babies that number is equilant to the population of the UK. So, to think of that if that were to happen would not there be an uproar of so many lives lost.

The pro life people are not kicking back. If they were out in gigantic groups and not allow the baby killers to get away with anything, this would stop. People like them, Antifa and BLM, cannot handle pushback.

There is nothing in the Constitution of the United States or the Declaration of Independence that guarantees women (birthing persons) the RIGHT to an abortion. That is what is being judged – whether Roe v. Wade is guaranteed in the Constitution. It is not. Aside from all the emotions being displayed, this is the basic point. Grow up.

In a 7-2 decision, SCOTUS said blacks were “property, not human” in the 1850s. In a 7-2 decision, SCOTUS said babies are “property, not human” in 1973. Both decisions were made by majority Democrat courts (with RINOs included).
BTW, these “women” who say men have no right to decide this current case; all 7 who voted for Roe were MEN!

We have armed guards at my church, and I know several people who carry while at church. Woe betide any protesters who come to do harm. Maybe you should too.
