Bill Lockwood: King Cuomo of NY: Shades of Herod!

by Bill Lockwood

Shockingly, the governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, recently signed into law measures to expand abortion rights across the state. Mislabeled the Reproductive Health Act, the state of New York wanted to put protective barriers around Roe v Wade which Democrats feared could be overturned by a more conservative Supreme Court under Donald Trump. Cuomo stated: “With the signing of this bill, we are sending a clear message that whatever happens in Washington, women in New York will always have the fundamental right to control their own body.”

The bill allows women to abort their babies up to the very moment of birth, even as they prepare for delivery. This grotesque ignoring of the value of children’s lives by abortion—properly called infanticideis alarming and should serve as a wake-up call to all Americans as to the wicked direction of leftist politics.

Herod the Great, the unusually cruel king of Judea who served under the auspices of Emperor Augustus at the time of our Lord’s birth, was in the last years of his reign when he learned that “the King of the Jews” was to be born in Bethlehem. In an effort to exterminate Jesus Christ, the newborn king, Herod ruthlessly slaughtered all of the babies of Bethlehem from two years old and younger (Matt. 2:16). Cuomo is cut out of the same cloth.

What’s next? Allowing the murder of children up to two years old? New York’s reasoning is that their bill involves the Reproductive Health of a woman. What about her Psychological Health? Here is how two Italian utilitarian professors argued for infanticide-even after birth-due to a woman’s psychological health.

However, having a child can itself be an unbearable burden for the psychological health

of the woman or for her already existing children, regardless of the condition of the fetus. This could happen in the case of a woman who loses her partner after she finds out that she is pregnant and therefore feels she will not be able to take care of the possible child by herself.

Giubilini & Minerva

The above statement was published in a prestigious online Journal of Medical Ethics several years ago. If that is not an argument for infanticide, it would be difficult to determine what would constitute one. It was co-authored by Alberto Giubilini of Monash University in Melbourne, Australia and Francesca Minerva of the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne. Their position is that killing of a newborn baby is “ethically permissible” in all circumstances where abortion would be.

To soften our minds to this horrific suggestion, they tell us that the unborn child as well as the newborn is “only a potential person.” Further, feeling that “infanticide” is too strong a term, they therefore “propose to call this practice ‘after-birth abortion.’” This emphasizes “that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus … rather than a child.” In other words, quit thinking in human terms like “child” or “baby.”

The “circumstances” which would “ethically” allow “abortion” include such considerations as when the “well-being of the family” is at risk. And then, almost unbelievably, the professors tell us that “The best interest of the one who dies is not necessarily the primary criterion for the choice…”

Biubilini & Minerva’s reasoning is simply an extension of the justification for Cuomo’s abortion bill. Let New Yorkers or any pro-choice person give a coherent answer as to the conceptual difference between a woman’s reproductive health and her psychological health. This cannot be done precisely because abortion itself is infanticide: the killing of innocent God-given life.

Once a society begins wickedly exterminating its unborn children (America has murdered more than 1 million babies a year since 1973—financed in large part by taxpayer-funded Planned Parenthood) a hardening of the conscience begins that inevitably leads to open Herodian-style infanticide. New York proudly leads the way downward.

One might ask the professors, or the Governor, who sets himself forth as some great one on this issue, just how long after birth might a baby be murdered? The professors are not certain on this point. That will have to be settled by “neurologists and psychologists” who advise the “king.” And that advice will be skewed depending upon the interest of the crown.

Jesse Lee Peterson: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ‘REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS’

Jesse Lee Peterson laments results of freedom without morality, explosion of evil

       by Jesse Lee Peterson

For almost 29 years, I’ve been speaking out against abortion. I’ve led protests outside Planned Parenthood abortion mills, spoken to people hurt by abortions on my radio show, and written articles to get the truth out.

Outside one abortion clinic, I pleaded with a teenager not to kill her child inside the womb. I even offered to take care of the child for her, with the help of my nonprofit organization, BOND. But it was already too late. A doctor had injected her with a saline solution that would kill her child. The doctor lied and said that the baby would not feel anything. For days she felt her child struggling and kicking for life inside her womb, before finally dying. To this day the young woman is traumatized with guilt.

The moral state of America has plunged over my lifetime – with the black community leading the way. Men have become increasingly weak, and women angry and out of control. Children grow up without any good examples. I’ve talked to Millennials and younger people who never saw a man of strong character while growing up. Instead, pathetic beta males kiss up to women, thinking they’re showing love and “equality” while bringing out the worst in the women. Today the female-dominated Democrat Party is the party of death.

In New York, the Democrat-majority government passed a new pro-abortion law allowing mothers to kill their unborn children up to the due date. Democrats dubbed it the “Reproductive Health Act,” declaring abortion a “fundamental right.” According to New York Right to Life, the Democrats’ idea of a mother’s “health” involves vague considerations of “age, economic, social and emotional factors.” In reality Democrats put personal convenience above a child’s life, ignoring the rights of the father, spoiling and lying to the mother, who later suffers. Democrats pretend that a human being inside the womb is not a “person” and should die if the mother “chooses.”

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Have you ever wondered about the callousness of young black males killing people in America’s inner cities? In a rare honest moment, Hillary Clinton was actually right in the 1990s when she called these killers “super predators” with “no conscience, no empathy.” But consider that these communities are filled with mothers who commit abortions at a higher rate than anywhere in the country – discarding lives like trash. In New York City in recent years, more black babies were aborted than born! In 2009, 57 percent, and in 2012, 56 percent of black pregnancies in the city ended in abortion.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo loves abortion so much that he threatened to hold up the budget to get this new law passed, pretending it’s about “women’s rights.” Upon signing the bill, he celebrated by lighting up the “One World Trade Center” and other state landmarks in pink. In a city where 3,000 Americans died at the hands of Muslim terrorists in 2001, ten times that number – 31,328 black babies – died at the hands of black females and “doctors” in 2012.

Now under this new law, you don’t even have to be a doctor to perform an abortion. And if a pregnant woman suffers a miscarriage due to a violent assault, the criminal suspect will not be charged with killing the unborn child!

Male Democrats are like the anti-Trump. President Trump, an alpha male and man of God, pushes the government to do its primary job – to protect Americans from endless invasion by criminals. Andrew Cuomo, a weak beta male and son of Satan, celebrates his state killing the most vulnerable human beings with legalized murder. Blacks’ fallen messiah, Barack Hussein Obama, as a Senator voted to allow newborn children who survive a botched abortion to die on the medical table. If one of his daughters have sex out of wedlock, Barack wouldn’t want them “punished with a baby.” What an evil man!

Black female Democrat Andrea Stewart-Cousins, New York State Senate Majority Leader – Satan’s daughter – justified the bill by saying that “women’s health matters” and “women’s decisions matter.” But there is no such thing as “reproductive rights.” Human beings do not have a right to take the life of a fellow human being just because the child is hidden inside the womb.

You only hear Democrats talk about “freedom,” “rights” and “morality” when they want to defend doing wrong. But there is no freedom without morality. Satan wants to rule over human beings. Evil cannot rule over a moral people. It must demoralize people in order to control them. So evil drives people and entices them deeper and deeper into immorality.

Evil takes over because men – especially white men – have forsaken their role as moral leaders in the country. Just as whites have been cowed into silence, surrendering their power whenever someone calls them “racist,” so men give up authority when called “sexist.” The pro-life movement was once led by men. If we’re to win the country back for good, men must again take the helm on this issue and all issues. Abortion is not a “woman’s choice.” Abortion is murder – it’s evil. It’s time all decent men stand up and tell the truth.

Bloody America: Ripe for Judgment

Bloody America: Ripe for Judgment

by Bill Lockwood

Nothing calls for the avenging judgment of God against America as clearly as do the recent revelations of barbaric infanticide and selling of baby body parts by public-funded, government-defended Planned Parenthood. Furthermore, that any public servant can be a serious contender for the President of the United States, as is Hillary Clinton, while vociferously defending the harvesting and selling of aborted human baby body parts—she recently endorsed the abortion-mill Planned Parenthood as providing “essential services”– is more of a mournful commentary on the wicked state of the American people than upon her.

Over thirty abortion clinics have partnered with StemExpress to “harvest and sell aborted baby parts and provide a ‘financial benefit’ to Planned Parenthood clinics,” writes Katie Pavlich. The initial reporting has been done by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) which has released several undercover videos exposing the practice by high-ranking Planned Parenthood officials.

Former employee of Planned Parenthood, Abby Johnson, has confessed that while she was employed there, she and her colleagues would “plainly talk about harvesting fetal parts as if we were talking about harvesting a field of corn.”

Abby Johnson worked for Planned Parenthood for eight years, even becoming a clinic director. Her conscience, however, tormented her and the breaking point came on September 26, 2009 as she witnessed an ultra-sound-guided abortion in which the 13-week baby fought for its life against the abortionist. A repentant Abby Johnson emerged and she has dedicated her efforts to exposing the human life horrors officially endorsed by the Democratic Party and tolerated by Americans.

Today, as this is written, the CMP has issued a fourth video in which undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, “negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple time to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.” The gruesome details continue in the video.

In the wake of these revelations a Los Angeles Superior Court judge has shockingly issued an unheard-of “temporary restraining order” to prevent the further release of more undercover videos by the CMP detailing similar atrocities. Government officials are more interested in covering deeds of darkness than reforming Hitlerian practices.

What Shall We Say to These Things?

The Old Testament prophets faced similar situations and remonstrated boldly against the abominations of ancient Israel. In refrains that fit America today, Ezekiel laments, “Woe to the Bloody Nation!” God then queries the prophet: “Will you judge the bloody city?” (22:1,2)

The prophet was commissioned to do the work of a prosecutor and the tone of the chapter is of a court setting against the nation of Israel and the capital city of Jerusalem. Echoing one of the seven things which “God hates”—“hands that shed innocent blood” (Prov. 6:17)—Ezekiel indicts the nation for “shedding blood” (v. 3); becoming “guilty in blood that thou hast shed” (4); having “princes” or rulers who exercise their self-serving will by “shedding blood” (6); “Slanderous men who shed blood” (9); and being paid to “shed blood”! (12)

What an apt description of America today and its elected politicians who defend the abomination called abortion. This atrocious contemporary picture of America resulted because we have “forgotten God” (Ezek. 22:12).

In reflecting the fury of God while announcing the sentence, Ezekiel is charged, “Clap your hands!” Then two rhetorical questions are put by God to Israel: “Can your heart endure, or can your hands be strong, in the day that I shall deal with you?”  God promises, “I will consume your filthiness out of you!”

It is important to note that a society that thrives on violence not only self-destructs but will also have to contend with God. He will not be forever idle. Sooner or later the cup of iniquity is full and community leaders bear special responsibility for the injustices done in society.
