Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
This is the sign that is over the front door of Aileen's and my house, our home, going OUT. Meaning that when someone leaves our house they are going into the ACTUAL Mental Ward.

I've always felt that way. When it is considered how much ugliness and killing and hatred there is in the world today, it actually makes perfect sense that this sign is over the door going out of the house.

Because that's where the real mental ward is.

Correction: Kansas-Abortion story - Yahoo! News

 

Correction: Kansas-Abortion story - Yahoo! News

I was not going to do any more news articles today, but when I was reviewing some of the daily news I saw this article and I knew I just had to put this up.  I have long maintained as a human rights advocate that the pro-life movement has nothing to do with being pro-life and this article clearly shows that's true.  The key words in this article are that terminations, which is the term I prefer to use instead of the socially explosive term, abortions.  That terminations in the state of Kansas would be illegal under all circumstances, including emergencies and including to safeguard the life of the mother.

Those are the critical words.  Because Kansas is taking the position that they don't care if they have to kill the woman as long as they get the baby.  Just exactly the same thing that was done to my birth mother.  In 1950.  Only in 1950 my birth mother.  Of course lived long before the so-called pro-life movement existed.  In 1950 my mother was treated at the Catholic hospital, white cross hospital in Columbus, Ohio, and she was subjected to barbaric cesarean procedures where she basically died an hour after I was born.  (See my biographical profile ).

(For support and source documentation, and further reading, please see my "See Also:" section below.)

When the laws throughout the United States are reviewed regarding terminations.  It is very clearly seen that the overwhelming laws throughout the entire country are taking the attitude that they don't really care about the woman's life in any way as long as they get the baby.  And that is the kind of barbaric eugenics oriented philosophy that I totally and completely object to.  Furthermore, as is clearly shown by the public listing with the federal government of the funds that the pro-life movement receives.  Not one single dime of the pro-life movement goes toward saving any living life.  Their money all of their money, goes toward lobbying, lawsuits, and protests.  None of their money goes toward saving any of the living children in this country or protecting or safeguarding the life of any woman who is pregnant.  In every single state in this country.  The woman's life takes a backseat to the antiquated religious dogmatic and hysterical thinking of the religious right and the Republican Party and the tea party.  Whereby, as a result, the religious right and the tea party and the Republican Party are guilty of showing open hatred and contempt and disrespect for women.  When in their own Bible their Lord and Savior Jesus died, whereby one of the reasons he died was protecting women.

So the so-called pro-life movement of the religious right in the Republicans and the tea party are refusing to protect one of the varied types of people in this world that their Lord and Savior died protecting.  Because they are showing no respect whatsoever for the woman's life.  And for the record, I am pro-life as is outlined in my Journal article entitled,”Second Gear “.

This entire article is a very clear signal of the open hatred and contempt and war on women in the United States being led by the extremists of the Christian conservative movement in the United States and the so-called pro-life movement of the United States aided by the Republican Party and the tea party.

(For support and source documentation, and further reading, please see my "See Also:" section below.)

United States is supposed to be a free nation granting equal rights to all of the citizens in this country.  And yet women continually take a backseat when it comes to equality along with minorities as well.  If we as a nation do not begin to respect the harbingers of life, who are women.  Then we as a nation are not only committing a crime against women, but against ourselves and against humanity.  And, biblically speaking, the Christian right and the so-called pro-life movement and the Republican Party and the tea party will be judged by God, as it says in their own Bible at the sermon on the Mount, where Jesus said that which you do to the least of all that God has created will be done to you.

So of the so-called pro-life movement and the Christian right and the Republican Party and the tea party don't mind burning in hell for all eternity for committing mass murder with their eugenics oriented philosophy of discarding the woman's life in favor of getting her child away from her or forcing her to bear children against her will.  Then I don't suppose I'm going to mind either.

But the bottom line is, biblically speaking, if the Christian right really believes in their own Bible, then why are they showing such hatred and contempt for the least of all that they may consider that God has made, which, in fact, in their own point of view by their own public actions, are women?  How dare they denigrate and miss treat the harbingers of life because they are so hungry for power and control that they are going to go ahead and demand that women die just so that they can get those babies.

No one was around to protect my mother.  In 1950 and the thousands of other courageous women who died as a result of poor medical practices of the time based on religiously dogmatic and hysterical thinking.  One would think that in all those years we as humans would have progressed enough and would have matured enough to understand that if we mistreat women in the manner that the Kansas law, and other states are attempting to do with their so-called pro-life movement.  We disrespect life as well.

The mind is like a book. Opened and much is learned. Closed and nothing is learned. (N. Maschke – 1994)

    For the record, I am pro-life . I do not support violence against, or the killing of any human being under any circumstances! In the entire 62 years of my life I have never raised my hands in anger at, or struck a single human being. And the only way that I ever deviate from that stand is that I do not believe that God has ever given any human the right to dictate to any woman how she is to arbitrate her life with the Almighty, and/or God . Therefore, I believe that all women deserve the right to choose for themselves the fate of their own bodies, pursuant to their relationship with the Almighty, and/or God . My position regarding this statement is more fully explained in my article entitled: Second Gear.

     

    My Statement On Religion

    For the record, I do not now, nor have I ever hated any human being on earth. I do not hate, regarding my spirituality, and spiritual beliefs, anything that the energy that is beyond this world that so many of us call, God, did make. Meaning that I do not hate the “humanity” that exists within any human being. However, God did not make the personal choices that humans make, regarding how they behave, and/or present themselves, to the world. So if a human being chooses, of their own free will to demonstrate their behavior with racism, bigotry, prejudice, and hatred for other humans, on the basis of their own free will choice as to how they define their spirituality within themselves, that is their own choice. So I do not hate any human being for being that which God did make. I hate only the choices and the manner in which humans have decided to demonstrate their behavior to one another. Whereby, as a result of those choices, war and mass murder have all too often been the primary result. I do not hate religion. However, I will never give my support to “any” religion, that has ever caused harm to, or killed, a single human being, in any way, as a result of the religion demonstrating, or manifesting it’s presence in the world. If any religion has ever harmed or killed a single human being, I respect the right of all humans to believe what they want in life. And subsequently, to follow whatever religion they choose. however, I, personally, will under no circumstances give my support for, or to, any religion, or theological belief, that has ever harmed or killed even a single human being. This is what I have dedicated my life to as a spiritualist and a pacifist here on earth. So any attempt by anyone to portray me as hating anyone is a lie. Because that is not so, as the foregoing clearly explains.

     

      • 25,000 children die each day from poverty
      • 1041 children die every hour due to poverty
      • 17 children die every minute from poverty
      • 750,000 children die every month from poverty
      • 9,000,000 children die every year from poverty

      Child mortality Statistics:

      • 9.2 million children die every year
      • 780,000 children die every month
      • 26,000 children die every day
      • 18 children die every minute

      An estimated 9.2 million children under the age of five will die this year – nearly 26,000 per day or 18 every minute. This is greater than the annual number of deaths from 1. AIDS (2 million), malaria (900,000), and tuberculosis (1.5 million) combined. 2. Neonatal disorders, pneumonia and diarrhea are the major causes of under-five mortality.

      Globally, 80 percent of all child deaths are due to only a handful of causes: neonatal causes, pneumonia, diarrhea, and malaria. 3. Pneumonia or sepsis, pre-term delivery, and asphyxia at birth are the leading causes of neonatal deaths. Malnutrition is responsible for over a third of child deaths.

      From: http://www.globalhealth.org/child_health/child_mortality/

      And, according to recent United States statistics, there are approximately 43,000 suicides that take place, in the United States every single year. That would be one suicide taking place, by children as young as 12, or possibly younger, up to our oldest citizens. Approximately every 15 minutes.

      Not one single penny that the pro-life movement spends on their so-called pro-life movement goes toward saving any of these “living” children’s lives. Not one single cent. Which means that not one single cent of the so-called pro-life movement is being used to save any of the amazing children and absolutely fantastic women, and men, who are being killed, or suffering horribly, every single minute. so naturally, it becomes impossible to conclude that the pro-life movement is pro-life at all, if they will not even save the lives of living children and men and women. But will always only be concerned with, and define life as the “fetus” only. And THAT’S NOT how their own God Jesus Christ defines life, in their own Bible.

      Which means that the pro-life movement is not pro-life at all. Because their money is “not” going to save any living life on this planet. Their money is only going toward forcing women to bear children against their will. And that’s not how their own God, Jesus Christ defines pro-life.

        If The Almighty will not allow the smallest sparrow to fall from the sky, why, should we, the creations of that same Almighty, do any less?

          With 78% of the population of the United States being Christian, (US Religious Demographic Statistics ) that also means that 78% of all the:

        incidents that take place every year, are committed by approximately 78% of the population, meaning people who claim to be Christians. (US Religious Demographic Statistics ). And that is something that the Christian conservatives , and those who are Catholics, never seem to want to discuss, and in many, if not most, cases, will lie about. Unless they are forced to do so, and/or tell the truth, in a court of law.

        And again, their own God, Jesus Christ says in their own Bible, not to judge anyone, and not to hurt anything that God makes. That’s anything. So, these statistics are really meant to illustrate about being responsible for one’s own choices and actions. That would be, in their own Bible, free-will choices and free-will actions.
