Silent Scream – Graphic Depiction of Abortion (not for children to view)

February 1, 2009

Dr. Bernard Nathanson’s classic video that shocked the world. He explains the procedure of a suction abortion, followed by an actual first trimester abortion as seen through ultrasound. The viewer can see the child’s pathetic attempts to escape the suction curette as her heart rate doubles, and a “silent scream” as her body is torn apart. A great tool to help people see why abortion is murder. The most important video on abortion ever made. This video changed opinion on abortion to many people.

Introduction by Dr. Bernard Nathanson, host. Describes the technology of ultrasound and how, for the first time ever, we can actually see inside the womb. Dr. Nathanson further describes the ultrasound technique and shows examples of babies in the womb. Three-dimensional depiction of the developing fetus, from 4 weeks through 28 weeks. Display and usage of the abortionists’ tools, plus video of an abortionist performing a suction abortion. Dr. Nathanson discusses the abortionist who agreed to allow this abortion to be filmed with ultrasound. The abortionist was quite skilled, having performed more than 10,000 abortions.

We discover that the resulting ultrasound of his abortion so appalled him that he never again performed another abortion. The clip begins with an ultrasound of the fetus (girl) who is about to be aborted. The girl is moving in the womb; displays a heartbeat of 140 per minute; and is at times sucking her thumb. As the abortionist’s suction tip begins to invade the womb, the child rears and moves violently in an attempt to avoid the instrument. Her mouth is visibly open in a “silent scream.” The child’s heart rate speeds up dramatically (to 200 beats per minute) as she senses aggression. She moves violently away in a pathetic attempt to escape the instrument. The abortionist’s suction tip begins to rip the baby’s limbs from its body, ultimately leaving only her head in the uterus (too large to be pulled from the uterus in one piece). The abortionist attempts to crush her head with his forceps, allowing it to be removed.

In an effort to “dehumanize” the procedure, the abortionist and anesthesiologist refer to the baby’s head as “number 1.” The abortionist crushes “number 1” with the forceps and removes it from the uterus. Abortion statistics are revealed, as well as who benefits from the enormously lucrative industry that has developed. Clinics are now franchised, and there is ample evidence that many are controlled by organized crime.

Women are victims, too. They haven’t been told about the true nature of the unborn child or the facts about abortion procedures. Their wombs have been perforated, infected, destroyed, and sterilized. All as a result of an operation about which they they have had no true knowledge.

Films like this must be made part of “informed consent.” NARAL (National Abortion Rights Action League) and Planned Parenthood are accused of a conspiracy of silence, of keeping women in the dark about the reality of abortion. Finally, Dr. Nathanson discusses his credentials. He is a former abortionist, having been the director of the largest clinic in the Western world.


Be God’s Fly Swatter

February 1, 2009

As we contemplate our role in this immortal combat, I’d like to share a quote from Professor Peter Kreeft’s monumental book, How to Win the Culture War:

“The most powerful forces in America are no longer church and state but Harvard and Hollywood. Church and state have limited power, for we are free to ignore or leave any church, and we are free to vote out of office any politician. But we are not free to stop our ears to the educational and media blitz that assaults us everywhere, the buzzing flies of Beelzebub that hover around the garbage dumps of the minds that make the movies and TV shows. It is on these screens that we must apply the swatters.

Who are the fly swatters? Not censors but saints. Love makes more waves than hate. Wicked men will hate and fear you more for loving them than for hating them. They will quickly forgive you for being wrong, but they will never forgive you for being right.

Saints always go into the ghettos, especially the moral ghettos. They make waves. Moses made waves. Jesus made waves. Muhammad made waves. The waves make the garbage come to the surface, and the waves of garbage often drown the saints and make them martyrs, white corpuscles that give themselves up to fight an infection. Saints are society’s white corpuscles, society’s saviors. If nobody wants to crucify you, you’re not doing your job. Or else your job isn’t HIS work.”

Are you prepared to be God’s fly swatter?


Has Our Culture Hit New Heights of Barbarism?

February 1, 2009

 

(Pro-death activists scream profanities into the faces of pro-life supporters at a January 31 Pro-Life Rally in Madison, WI … among the many gems chanted by pro-death supporters was: “Pray, you’ll need it – your cross will be defeated” …. so emboldened by the present administration — with all the hubris and arrogance they can muster — they no longer bother to disguise their true aganda).

And this from GOPUSA:

McKay Hatch is a 15-year-old boy from South Pasadena, Calif., who people clearly hate. He’s received over 60,000 negative e-mails, most of them vicious, some including death threats that have spawned police and FBI investigations. What has this boy done that’s caused such anger? Was he caught dealing drugs? Did he rage? Did he kill? No. He started a No Cussing Club.

And for that he is vilified. Hatch says some people are going out of their way to curse him at school, on the Internet and on the phone. They send him pornographic magazine subscriptions. Not long ago, someone ordered $2,000 worth of pizza delivered to Hatch’s house. Then came the death threats.

Brent Hatch, the teenager’s father, told reporters one death threat in particular crossed the line. “I was at the hospital with my wife, and we were visiting family, and some guy had called on my cell phone said, ‘I know you you’re gone, you’re not there. I’m in front of your house, and I’m going to kill your family.'”

If the purveyors of profanity think that cussing is so harmless, why are some of them so unbelievably hostile to anyone suggesting a voluntary ban on the bleeps?

McKay Hatch isn’t buckling. “It’s really scary, because people are calling us all night,” he says. “Sometimes we have to unplug the phone. You know, at first it was really kind of scary, but they’re just bullies, and they want you to be scared. And so I’m not gonna let them win.” His No Cussing Club now boasts 20,000 members.

Let me repeat something here. This boy is 15 years old. He didn’t just stumble into activism. It’s a family mission. McKay’s parents are authors of a book titled “Raising a G-Rated Family in an X-Rated World.” Profanity wasn’t allowed at home. Hatch says none of his friends in elementary school ever swore, but when they got to middle school, “everyone started cussing,” he says. “The reason it bothered me the most is because it was something they were using every other word, kind of like the word ‘the.’ They kept using it and using it.”

Hatch suggests that instead of cuss words, his school friends could use alternative exclamations when frustrations inevitably occur. He told Jay Leno his favorite was “pickles,” but he also suggests “barnacles” and “sassafras.” He even has a rap-music video on YouTube where he and some friends walk to the beat down the street in their orange club T-shirts and chant, “Don’t Cuss.” It’s severely at odds with the kind of language that usually permeates rap videos.

Sadly, most of popular culture seems headed in the opposite direction. Bubble-headed pop princess Britney Spears, desperate to stay in the spotlight after years of embarrassments and humiliations, has a new single coming out called “If You Seek Amy.” If that doesn’t spell trouble, then pay a little more attention to Britney’s snappy lyric, as she claims, “All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to If You Seek Amy.” This lyric doesn’t make any grammatical sense, until you read it phonetically. She’s spelling out the F-bomb.

Britney’s now casting herself as the new Tila Tequila, the latest MTV temptress so fetching that she’s a poster girl for bisexual incontinence.

Parents in Australia were the first to complain, and now American radio stations are hearing the din from activists warning that the “Amy” song would violate the broadcast indecency law if aired between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. But radio stations are picking it up anyway. It’s hit No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Jive Records is already boasting there’s been more than 100,000 digital downloads of the song. It’s the third release off the new Britney disc, appropriately titled “Circus.”

For more skittish programmers, a Jive-edited version of the song excises the “k” from “Seek,” leaving the audience with “If You See Amy” (leaving a misspelled F-bomb). Some inventive disc jockeys are throwing their own names over the “Me,” so for instance when the chorus plays, it’ll go “All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek … George.” And people think saying “pickles” like a cuss word is lame.

Record companies and radio stations don’t seem to make business decisions that imagine parents driving with young children in the car with the radio on. Or maybe that’s exactly what they have in mind. If it’s shocking and offensive enough, it will be a great sales and publicity vehicle.

The No Cussing Club has quite a challenge in front of it. It’s an X-rated world, indeed.
