What if I told you that in your city, perhaps even right next door if you live downtown in a major city, that a genocide of massive proportions has been taking place since 1973? What if I told you that this genocide has killed an estimated 45.1 million people according to the CDC? To make matters worse, what if I told you that this genocide has a great many people advocating for it, defending it, and promoting it? Would you believe me that such a thing exists?
To highlight the barbarity of this genocide, I’m going to use one man as an example - let’s call him Mr. X. Mr. X was responsible for murdering thousands of people, in the city of Philadelphia. He was publicly known and nobody reported him or tried to stop his rampage of death for 30 years. He is perhaps the most prolific serial killer in US history, and you probably don’t even know his name. How is that possible?
It is possible because of WHO he was committing genocide against - unborn babies. Mr. X is in fact, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, currently serving out 3 life sentences for 1st degree murder, 1 charge of involuntary manslaughter of an adult whose baby he murdered, in addition to other charges. The 3 babies he was convicted of murdering were babies who were born alive whom he killed by snipping their spinal cords just below the skull with a pair of scissors.
Why am I writing this blog? I recently saw the film which documents these grisly murders and his court case - Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer. How this film relates to the self-protection issue and your right to it shall be made clear shortly. It was an absolutely horrifying film, well made and acted, but the subject matter is extremely disturbing.
As a pro self-protection advocate, trainer, writer and author, I wanted to see this film because one of my tasks is to study unjust violence in all its forms. Abortion, aka, baby murder, is born from a lack of virtue just like all other murder. It stems from vice, a casting off of God’s morality, and a personal mind and heart of wickedness. Gosnell is a murderer, a psychopath I’d wager, who played classical music on his piano while his home was being searched by police. He has no remorse, and murdered those children in cold blood.
HOW DOES THIS APPLY TO YOU? HOW DOES THIS APPLY TO THE PRO-SELF-PROTECTION ISSUE?
"C'mon Alex, why are you writing about this?" Is this important for you to know? Why care? Why am I writing on this topic? Because if you and I do not value human life at conception, then how can we make a logical case for protecting life after birth? If we can murder babies in the womb to the tune of 45.1 million since 1973, then how do you really expect OUR right of self-protection to remain standing?
The right to self-protection applies to PEOPLE - human beings. If unborn babies are not people, persons, humans, made in God’s image, then is it possible that other “people” are not actually people too? If we can murder babies in the womb, what is to logically stop us from murdering babies by age 2 after birth? How about the elderly who “no longer contribute to society”? How about anyone who is not contributing to society? How about someone who isn’t the right race, creed, or gender? How about someone who has a different worldview from us? How about people living with down syndrome or other genetic abnormalities which won’t allow them to experience a “normal” or “full” life? If a certain race “isn’t human”, then it’s OK to murder them; so the logic goes. If unborn babies are not people, then it isn’t wrong to murder them - because it isn’t really murder after all; only persons can be murdered. Life either has meaning from the beginning, or it does not.
How you view the unborn matters. Do you accept reality that they are human beings who must be protected from being murdered just like any other human being? Or do you delude yourself into thinking they are a "clump of cells" or "part of the woman's body like a mole" in order to justify the unjustifiable?
As a protector, as a warrior, it is your sacred duty to protect ALL human beings from unjust violence. YOUR right to self-protection and the defense of your family depends on the logical truth that ALL human life must be protected from unjust violence and that all human life is sacred. Failure to accept this fundamental principle of reality has horrifying consequences for the society that rejects it.
LANGUAGE - TAKE CONTROL OF IT!
Just as with the “anti-gun” issue, correctly labeling and speaking the truth on this issue is imperative in order to persuade others to the truth and help win the culture war. Language shapes reality. “Abortion” is a word that is used to distract you from the truth of what it is - baby murder. Planned Parenthood defines “abortion” as: a medical procedure that ends a pregnancy. Here is what that really means in truthful, non-dressed-up language - WARNING! VIOLENT AND DESCRIPTIVE LANGUAGE TO FOLLOW:
Notice the language? Kept as clean as possible lest we offend your poor sensibilities. Even the names, “Vacuum aspiration”, “Dilation and extraction” etc. Are meant to make it sound clean, simple, and totally sterile. The names and language are cleverly constructed to hide the visceral truth from you - that these “procedures” are murderous. Here is what a post 24 week “abortion” looks like - WARNING! HIGHLY GRAPHIC IMAGE!
If you know someone who is “pro-choice” (another diabolical manipulation of language) I encourage you to take them to see the Gosnell film. You can find locations and more info here: http://gosnellmovie.com/ If you are already pro-life and pro-self-protection, I encourage you to see it too! Sometimes, we need a reminder for why we do what we do and why we defend the truth.
My fellow warrior, murder is murder. Your right to self-protection will not last if we continue to condone the murder of unborn human babies. Again, I encourage you to go see this film - especially if you are “pro-choice”. If you can watch the film and still remain “pro-choice” afterwards, at least you’ll know the truth in your heart - that you are pro-murder. You are “pro-the-woman’s-choice-to-murder-her-baby.” You’ll forgive me if I describe that position as evil, morally reprehensible and vile to the utmost degree.
I commend all the actors and filmmakers who took a giant risk being associated with this film. Hollywood loves to murder babies, so to make a film which so clearly shows “abortion” for what it is, takes tremendous courage.
Live with virtue my fellow warriors and never stop protecting those who cannot protect themselves.
