When Is a Person Not a Person?
Socialist’s lack morality and intellectual ability
By Barry Napier
Saturday, January 23, 2010
Socialists have the most incredible lack of intellectual ability, and they lack the most basic tenets of morality. Why is this? It is because their lives are predicated on political philosophy rather than on facts and truth. That is how the Kenyan, Obama, came to be the Great Pretender in the White House. In essence, he spoke well, but didn’t have an ounce of truth about him. Yet, people voted for him, to the astonishment of more rigorous minds.
The current position on the killing of babies is yet another example of this lack of moral and intellectual ability, not just on the part of those who kill, but also those inept persons who judge. It is not that they are unintelligent. They have intelligence sufficient to judge properly. What they lack is the intellectual attitude and moral uprightness to tackle the situation.
The Loophole
Recently, a young mother in Virginia delivered her baby in her own home, and then smothered it with a pillow. Any young mother, unmarried and unsupported, can panic and become emotionally fragmented. But, she still knows what she is doing and knows murder is wrong. The judge who heard the case decided not to prosecute.
Any judge should show compassion in certain cases. It is quite possible the girl felt alone and was filled with despair. Judges can always show mercy in cases of manslaughter. But, where the killing is deliberate murder, it should attract the death penalty. Liberals, however, are shocked by such a thing! And so the worth of human life is cast into the mud. There is also the Christian angle, where murder requires the death penalty according to God, no matter what state the mind is in. But, even if we ignore the Biblical answer, there is still the matter of human contempt for life.
The judge who refused to penalise the mother for murder, spoke of a loophole in the law. The ‘loophole’ is that a mother can do whatever she likes with her baby, so long as the umbilical cord is still attached. Why not have a bit of fun? Why not swing the baby by the umbilical cord around your head and bounce it off the walls until the cord severs and the baby is just a bloodstained lump of dead pulp? I think this illustration proves the invalidity of the umbilical cord idea!
This repugnant ‘loophole’ remained even after an earlier mother shot her baby whilst it was still in her womb. Police sought action, but liberals did not act; they said they didn’t want to be ‘involved’ because it was “too close to the abortion issue.” In other words, they didn’t want to invoke the wrath of immoral atheists, which is no excuse to avoid making just decisions.
Not Failure – Just Repugnant Thinking
Many groups legitimately see this as a failure in law. It is far worse than that – it is a deliberate policy decision to allow for killing, by socialist governments and law-makers. And, because it is based on philosophy, no person should have the right to impose it on others, who may have other philosophical or religious beliefs on the matter.
Section 18.2 of the Virginia penal code says it is only a crime to kill the ‘fetus of another’. This is a very deliberate and obvious avoidance of the abortion issue, the hot potato of all liberals, who, like Roman emperors, want to see the streets lined with dead babies they insist on calling ‘fetuses’.
The idea to refer to an unborn baby as a ‘fetus’ is arbitrary. It has no actual basis in fact. Rather, its basis is philosophical. Once a legal decision is based on philosophy alone, it will contain ‘loopholes’, kept there so that those of liberal mind can use it to their own advantage… both perpetrator and judge.
It is a stark and glaringly awful fact that to say one can be taken to court for killing the fetus of another, is to create precedence for the killing of one’s own child. It also creates the precedence for killing any person of any age.
Lane v Commonwealth of Virginia
In 1978, this case led a judge to make an unjustified decision – that one cannot call a baby a ‘person’ unless it can live independently of its mother. This was both immoral and extremely philosophical, not legal. Yet, it set the precedent we see today, and so abortion-on-demand is rife.
In the Lane case, the judge said that because the umbilical cord was still connected, the mother could kill the baby, even though it was breathing. This was stunningly outrageous, and it was amazingly stupid. The judge was liberal and decided to swing the law in the direction of socialist theory. That is what it was all about. Any first year law student could have pronounced on its illogicality and its consequences! But, these were factored-in by the judge, because it was a desired socialist end – to allow murder, or, an extended form of abortion.
Illinois and Missouri states have now corrected that loophole. Five other states have cases pending but will not prosecute, because they keep the loophole in place. This is probably because the czars appointed by Obama will overturn their decisions anyway, if they go against the idea of abortion. Obama wants abortions of any variety, in large numbers. It is what communists do.
Virginia Senator Newman is trying to get the law changed, regardless of umbilical attachment: Bill SB602. We will know the results in a few days time.
Who Is ‘Independent’?
The loophole will be widened if Obama gets his way, because he is an open fan of infanticide. But, those who are prepared to support him are backing other applications of that law. For example, how to determine who is independent of their mother? It is a short legally-possible step from umbilical cord to dependence in other ways, and any sharp lawyer can create his own precedents from it.
What of a toddler? Can he live independently of his mother? Maybe for a few weeks until he starves to death! What about an older child with physical deformities or ailments that require constant attention? He is totally dependent. What if he comes down with a serious illness? What of middle-aged people who have dementia and who depend on their elderly parents? What of a husband who has a stroke and his wife leaves him… and he is cared for by his mother? The precedents can stretch to all of life. And that is why the ‘loophole’, a deliberate one left there by liberal socialists, must be plugged. An umbilical cord is not the only form of dependency!
A baby at any age is another life. To deny it is to be intellectually inept and morally defunct. Precedents would swing on what is a ‘person’ and what is meant by ‘independence’. As today’s societal degeneration proves, immoral decisions will be based on an unethical definition made by socialists, whose mindset is atheistic.
The apparently unconnected issue of umbilical cords can easily transfer in principle to any form of dependence, whether on mother, state or some other newly-defined condition. What of dependence on the state? Or on drugs? Any of these seemingly unconnected conditions can be used by an unscrupulous lawyer who wants to create precedent in support of his political or philosophical stance. Watch out for this kind of law-changing when Obama’s czars get into full swing!
Relativism – The Dud Approach to Life
When legal decisions come down to philosophical theories, it means there is no fixed answer. That is why most socialist ideas rely on ‘relativism’. It is an attitude to life that refuses morality, refuses to penalise murder, and refuses to acknowledge that anyone other than yourself has a right to life.
It also refuses to accept there are absolutes, which, in itself, is an absurdity. In a debate long ago, a socialist atheist said to me: “ There are no absolutes.” I replied “But that very statement is an absolute!” He could not answer!! This is because, to deny the existence of absolutes, socialists have to force other absolutes upon us.
This is what makes the socialist vision of abortion and killing of others a farce of justice, thought and morality. They cannot, by intellectual or moral means, defend their position. But, as always, someone with the power can make atheistic decisions and no-one can do anything about it, at least not in the short-run. (Raw ‘power’ is not the same as deserved ‘authority’).
It has been said that morality only exists where there is Christianity. This is not correct, for every person knows what is generally right and wrong. It is this inward knowledge that causes them to be so violent and abusive in their defense. They hate to have their arrogant choices shown for what they are. Yet, relativism is without defence in truth, even though ‘truth’ does not exist in relativism!
Because of socialism, we now have a pandemic of HIV and AIDS, ever rising STD’s, pregnancies amongst young girls, overwhelming illegal immigration, a lowering of educational standards, more violence and murders, economic failure, intolerance of Christianity, deaths of older people living alone, overarching green policies, immoral and wicked youth, and more. Socialism is the cult of less and harm to more. Babies are only a start for liberals!
We are in this mess because we allowed lunatics to take over the asylum. Too many people are scared to voice their views, so socialists gain ground and spread their absurd ideas everywhere, without need to explain themselves. They then claim right-thinkers are foolish. Garbage!
Don’t be afraid of liberals, socialists and atheists (who are usually the same person) – they are only expressing stupid ideas! Your view is just as valid, if not more so. Pursue them relentlessly, just as they have tried to pursue you. They are bullies without ability to use their brains. And it shows in the decisions they make.

None Dare Call It Genocide
By Cliff Kincaid
January 26, 2010
NewsWithViews.com
Dennis Howard told EWTN television network on the day of the March for Life in Washington, D.C. that legalized abortion is the equivalent of 260 Haiti disasters on American soil. The death toll from abortion in the U.S. is over 52 million.
One of the differences is that Haiti is the result of a natural disaster. Abortion is man-made.
Another difference is that we search for the victims in Haiti and rush assistance to those injured from the earthquake. The victims of abortion are not worthy of sympathy or attention because they are the product of a “woman’s right to choose.”
This year’s March for Life featured a line of women carrying signs that said, “I regret my abortion.” They represented the “Silent No More” awareness campaign, where their testimonies about having abortions are available.
If you aren’t accustomed to hearing abortion described in the terms of genocide, then you have either (1) never been to a March for Life or (2) not bothered to visit the website of the abortion-related Genocide Awareness Project.
As the pro-lifers last Friday marched toward the Supreme Court, they passed by the gigantic display of pictures from the Genocide Awareness Project, some of them of aborted babies. Many of the people new to the march were transfixed by the images of bloody and dismembered bodies. They stared in disbelief.
Imagine if the major media were to show these images.
As shocking as the photos are, the figures are almost as startling. In the interview with EWTN correspondent Damon Owens, Dennis Howard of the Movement for a Better America described the financial impact of abortion through the depletion of human resources. The loss of over 52 million people has meant a loss of $38.5 trillion in GDP.
It’s almost as if a nuclear war had occurred on U.S. soil, he said. The result will be increased financial pressure and higher taxes on those under 40 years of age to pay for government, including the costs associated with those getting old.
Of course, if ObamaCare takes effect, their lives may be cut short, too. Perhaps that is the plan.
In the second article in the latest AIM Report, Ione Whitlock of Life Tree, Inc., a pro-life educational ministry headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, tells the story of how the George Soros-funded “Big Death” lobby has taken center stage in the health care debate. Their objective, she makes clear, is a federal bureaucracy in charge of life and death over the elderly. Sarah Palin was right on target in her comment about “death panels.”
A major focus of the March for Life was that “Abortion is not health care.” Despite the election of Scott Brown in Massachusetts, who opposes ObamaCare but is pro-abortion rights, it remains to be seen if the liberal leaders in Congress will ever get this message.
Robert McCartney of the Washington Post went to the March for Life and discovered that young people are on the side of life. Though “pro-choice” himself, he reported that “…I was especially struck by the large number of young people among the tens of thousands at the march. It suggests that the battle over abortion will endure for a long time to come.” He noted that some of them carried “We are the pro-life generation” placards.
McCartney implied that many young people were raised Catholic and programmed to oppose abortion. Indeed, some may be pro-life because their parents are pro-life. But some may be pro-life by virtue of the fact that they are alive and grateful for it.
In addition to the pictures of aborted babies, which never show up in the major media, we have the ultrasound images of babies in the womb. General Electric has a piece of equipment, the GE 4D ultrasound, that takes some of the best pictures.
When my wife and I had our first child, the ultrasound images were grainy. They are much clearer now.
McCartney’s point about Catholic involvement was nevertheless true. There was a heavy Catholic presence. But some marchers let the Bishops know that they are not satisfied with the church’s treatment of the issue. “Excommunicate all Catholic pro-abortion politicians” proclaimed one sign. “Bishops: Enforce Canon 915” said another. Section 915 of the Code of Canon Law requires the denial of Holy Communion to those engaging in “grave sin,” interpreted by traditional Catholics as support for abortion.
A large banner was addressed to the president of the University of Notre Dame and proclaimed, “Father Jenkins: Free the Notre Dame 88.” The “88” are those who ventured onto Notre Dame’s campus to protest President Obama’s commencement speech and receipt of an honorary “Doctor of Laws” degree and were arrested and hauled off to jail. Jenkins is being urged to drop the charges against them.
Earlier in the day, at the American Life League conference at the Washington Court Hotel, Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., gave a pro-life presentation and urged people to watch two films, The trailer for one, available at www.maafa21.com, is about black genocide. “How can we keep the dream alive if we murder the children?” she asked. The other, Bloodmoney, is about the abortion business.
I spoke to Bobby Schindler, the brother of Terri Schiavo, who was starved to death in 2005 at the direction of her estranged husband. Their foundation is sponsoring a Life & Hope Concert on April 11 to commemorate the five-year anniversary of Terri’s death. It will feature country music star Randy Travis. They also have an important new video that sets the record straight about this controversial case.
The bottom line, as noted in the film, is that, “By order of the government, a healthy young woman was denied food and water until she died.” The government at all levels failed to protect life, although conservatives in Washington tried to make sure it did and were condemned by the media for their efforts.
On Friday, the same day as the March for Life, Glenn Beck aired his documentary, “The Revolutionary Holocaust: Live Free or Die,” in which he went back in time to address the evils of communist-inspired genocide. This information needs to get out.
But he ought to bring the subject up to date. As Beck was showing a film about Marxist genocide, hundreds of thousands were concluding a march in Washington, D.C. to protest 52 million abortions in the United States.
Will he dare call that genocide? Will his partner Bill O’Reilly?

The Truth About Abortion
By Chuck Baldwin
January 22, 2010
NewsWithViews.com
http://www.newswithviews.com/baldwin/baldwin563.htm
Today marks the 37th anniversary of the infamous US Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, which, in effect, legalized abortion-on-demand nationwide. The aftermath of this tragic ruling is the deaths of over 40 million (a very conservative number) innocent unborn babies. It is no hyperbole to say abortion is America's holocaust. Think of it, every American citizen today, 37 years old or younger, has never known a country that respected and protected innocent human life in the womb. Put it another way: when Hitler's Third Reich was at its zenith, the abortion rate was 40%. In 2003 (the last year that I checked), the abortion rate of the county in which I live was 39%. And I live in the heart of the so-called "Bible Belt." In fact, statistically speaking, the most dangerous place to be in America is not in an automobile without wearing a seat belt, or in a commercial airliner with a potential terrorist on board. Statistically speaking, the most dangerous place to be is in the womb of one's mother.
Dr. Bernard Nathanson once headed America's largest abortion clinic in New York City. He admitted superintending over the killing of 75,000 unborn babies. He later recanted his pro-abortion activity and wrote what may be the quintessential book defending an unborn child's right to life, "Aborting America." Dr. Nathanson said, "There is no longer serious doubt in my mind that human life exists within the womb from the very onset of pregnancy."
Dr. Mildred Jefferson was a surgeon at Boston University Medical Center, a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery with many honors and awards. She said, "Many people try to hide behind the confusion of not knowing what happens before a baby is born. But we do not have to be confused. We in medicine and science have a different name for every stage of the development of the baby, but it does not matter at all whether you know those names or not. When a young woman has not had much opportunity to go to school and she becomes pregnant, no one has to tell her that she is going to have a baby.
"I became a doctor in the tradition that is represented in the Bible of looking upon medicine as a high calling. I will not stand aside and have this great profession of mine, of the doctor, give up the designation of healer to become that of the social executioner. The Supreme Court Justices only had to hand down an order. Social workers only have to make arrangements, but it has been given to my profession to destroy the life of the innocent and the helpless.
"Today it is the unborn child; tomorrow it is likely to be the elderly or those who are incurably ill. Who knows but that a little later it may be anyone who has political or moral views that do not fit into the distorted new order. To that question, 'Am I my brother's keeper?' I answer 'Yes.' It is everyone's responsibility to safeguard and preserve life. A child is a member of the human family and deserves care and concern."
How many physicians, scientists, teachers, pastors, missionaries, statesmen, musicians, businessmen, and notable contributors to society have been murdered in the womb?
At this point, I can hear someone interrupting, "What about cases involving rape or incest?"
While these cases number less than 1% of pregnancies, consider this case history: a 12-year-old girl was raped and became pregnant. "Get an abortion," you say? Congratulations. You just killed Ethel Waters.
And as Dr. Jefferson said, just where does the acceptance of abortion lead? If we listen to the former governor of Colorado, Richard Lamm, elderly people who are terminally ill have a "duty to die and get out of the way." (Source: New York Times)
And does anyone remember Baby Doe in Bloomington, Indiana?
A little baby was born April 9, 1982, with Down's Syndrome in a Bloomington, Indiana, hospital. The parents refused to allow a doctor to correct a defect in the esophagus that prevented eating because the child was born with Down's. The Indiana Supreme Court upheld the parents' right to make this decision. Despite many couples on hand willing to adopt the child, adoption offers that came in from all over America, and an appeal pursued to the U.S. Supreme Court, Baby Doe died of starvation on April 15, 1982.
Add to this blatant disrespect for human life the potential for mandated government-run national health care--complete with cost-related rationing--and one can only imagine how the value of human life will continue to decline in these United States. Plus, if you want to do some personal research that will really send chills up your spine, start investigating the fact that many scientists and researchers are seriously discussing genetic manipulation and genetic engineering. Good grief! Our own government and military are already culpable in grotesque medical experimentation with both civilian and military personnel.
Our own Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has admitted to using military personnel as human guinea pigs for medical, biological, and mental experimentation under various programs associated with the now-infamous title, MK-ULTRA. CIA officials say the programs have all been scrapped. Don't you believe it.
In addition, consider the testimony of Dr. Carolyn Gerster, a physician specializing in internal medicine and cardiopulmonary diseases. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Oregon Medical School in Portland. She spent two years as a medical officer in the US Army.
Dr. Gerster told Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum, "I was asked to become a member of the American College of Physicians many years ago. It's any honorary society of internal medicine. I was very proud right up until the day that the society gave the James D. Bruce Award for Medical Research to Dr. Saul Krugman for the following experiment. Dr. Krugman had taken living hepatitis virus MS2 and injected this living virus into 25 retarded children in Willowbrook Home for Retarded in upstate New York. This was defended on the basis that they would probably get the hepatitis virus anyway."
Consider, too, that, contrary to what most people assume, the vast majority of physicians graduating from medical school today no longer take a Hippocratic-type oath--an oath that binds physicians to the following: "I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone. I will not give a lethal drug to anyone if I am asked, nor will I advise such a plan; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary [medical device] to cause an abortion."
As Schaeffer and Koop pointed out in their book, "Whatever Happened to the Human Race?" "The Declaration of Geneva (adopted in September 1948 by the General Assembly of the World Medical Organization and modeled closely on the Hippocratic Oath) became used as the graduation oath by more and more medical schools. It includes: 'I will maintain the utmost respect for human life from the time of conception.' This concept of the preservation of human life has been the basis of the medical profession and society in general. Today, the ageless principles that had guided the medical profession throughout Western Civilization have been expunged from a majority of our physicians' training and practice. And the Roe Supreme Court decision had much to do with this.
It is significant that when the University of Pittsburgh changed from the Hippocratic Oath to the Declaration of Geneva in 1971, the students deleted 'from the time of conception' from the clause."
What is especially irritating about the whole abortion debate is the way the subject has been used as a political football by those on both the right and the left of the political aisle. While the national Democratic Party proudly touts itself as being "pro-choice," (meaning, pro-murdering unborn babies), it has been the so-called "pro-life" Republican Party that is mostly to blame for legalized abortion being left as the law of the land for nearly 4 decades.
Think of it: the GOP has dominated US Supreme Court appointments for the 37 years since the Roe decision. In fact, the 1973 court that released the Roe decision was a Republican-appointed court by a 6-3 margin. The same GOP-dominated court also rendered the Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decision reaffirming Roe.
Consider still: the "pro-life" Republican Party controlled the entire federal government from the election of 2000 to the election of 2006: six long years of GOP domination of both houses of Congress, the White House, and the US Supreme Court. And in all that time not one single unborn baby's life was saved. NOT ONE!
And, yet, each year, Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) would introduce the Sanctity of Life bill. And each year, the bill would sit in the document room of the Capitol Building and gather dust. What would Rep. Paul's bill do? Two things: (1) It would define unborn babies as persons under the law. (2) Under the authority of Article. III. Section. 2. of the US Constitution, it would remove abortion from the jurisdiction of the court. Had the "pro-life" Republican congress passed Dr. Paul's bill, and the "pro-life" President, G. W. Bush, signed it into law, Roe v. Wade would have been effectively overturned.
So, why didn't President Bush trumpet the bill? Where was the Republican leader in the Senate? Where was the Republican Speaker of the House? Where was Orrin Hatch? Where was John McCain? Where was Lindsey Graham? Where was Glenn Beck? Where was Rush Limbaugh? Where was Newt Gingrich? Where was Sean Hannity? Where was the National Right to Life Committee? Where were the tens of thousands of "pro-life" pastors and Christians?
And, yet, these same "pro-life" pastors, church members, and "conservatives" refused to support Congressman Paul for President in 2008, because he was not "conservative" enough. Actually, they opposed him because he opposed the war in Iraq, which means they would rather support a politician who promotes taking America into unconstitutional wars--but who will do nothing to overturn Roe and save the lives of unborn babies--than support a man who demands that the Constitution be followed, and actually had a constitutional plan to overturn Roe and end abortion-on-demand as a national "right." No wonder Jesus noted that unbelievers often have it over believers in the brains department. (See Luke 16:8.)

I remind you that preserving life and liberty is the primary purpose of government (read the Declaration of Independence, for example).
According to Fox News a few years back, 30 states were poised to pass laws outlawing abortion if and when the US Supreme Court ever reversed its Roe v. Wade decision. What they need to do is stop waiting for the US Supreme Court to reverse itself, and go ahead and stand on their own State authority and autonomy, and outlaw abortion in their states now, as legislators in South Dakota, Georgia, Michigan, Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia are already attempting to do.
Legalized abortion is a national holocaust; an affront to our national character; a contradiction of established principles subscribed to from the beginning of Western Civilization; an insult to the principles of our Declaration of Independence; a bane of our national spirit; and a stench in the nostrils of Almighty God. That we have allowed it to continue for 37 years now stands as an indictment against this generation of Americans and bodes ominously for the well-being of our posterity.
At this point, however, I think it is safe to conclude that to pretend there is any hope that Washington politicians (from either party) will do anything to overturn Roe is pure fantasy. At this point, it is up to State legislatures and governors to preserve life in their respective states. Several states are already beginning to do just that.
