No Reason to Celebrate

Our culture loves to celebrate.

Birthdays, anniversaries, job promotions or a team victory are all reasons for merriment.

But Americans understand some events require sober reflection. For example, we don’t celebrate the tragedy of one person violently killing another.

Sadly, there are those among us who actually want you to celebrate death.

Abortion advocates are desperate to reduce the stigma attached to killing innocent unborn babies in their mothers’ wombs. Part of their strategy is to generate a celebratory environment surrounding abortion. Toward that end, they are asking women who’ve had abortions to publicly glorify their experience.

It’s not just the radical fringe of the pro-abortion movement that wants everyone to revel in this human carnage. Leading abortion supporters have turned the corner from advocating “choice” to publicly celebrating abortion.

The recent antics of actress Martha Plimpton sickened a good many Americans. Standing before a Seattle audience she glibly announced that her first abortion was in her opinion her “best” abortion. “Heads and tails above the rest,” she declared.

Plimpton is also known for sporting a dress that loudly declared her pro-abortion philosophy. It was covered in “♥ ABORTION” from top to bottom.

Some have accused actress Lena Dunham of coming unhinged regarding her promotion of abortion that clearly crossed the line of decency. During one of her podcasts she remarked, “Now I can say that I still haven’t had an abortion, but I wish I had.” (Emphasis added)

Planned Parenthood bills itself as a mainstream, indispensable provider of women’s healthcare, falsely claiming that abortion makes up only three percent of the services they offer. This is in sharp contrast with their aggressive push for abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy.  Planned Parenthood’s attempt to minimize their true abortion activism hasn’t stopped them from publicly celebrating the tragedy of abortion.

They have a website called Celebrate Roe which they trot out during the anniversary of Roe v Wade to celebrate the US Supreme court ruling that has lined their pockets and so far claimed the lives of nearly 60-million babies — a mind-blowing number equal to the total population of several states.

Shout Your Abortion is one of the latest campaigns in an attempt to persuade Americans that abortion functions as a positive in women’s lives. They have a website by the same name that gives women the opportunity to enthusiastically tout their past abortion(s). It also features an online store where you can purchase a myriad of items like T-shirts, totes and jewelry singing the praise of abortion. The less obscene taglines include Abortion is Freedom and Everyone Knows I Had an Abortion.

Elle, a fashion and beauty website in the United Kingdom ran an article earlier this year titled 11 Powerful Women Who Have Spoken Out About Their Own Abortion. The list includes pro-abortion icons such as ultra-feminist Gloria Steinem and actress Whoopi Goldberg. It also features feminist author Polly Vernon who described her three abortions as nothing more than “three messy, silly scenarios.” Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood said her abortion “wasn’t a difficult decision.”

While every one of these 11 women continue to defend abortion, not all of them revel in its memory. Singer Nicki Minaj said her abortion has “haunted me all my life…” Stevie Nicks wrote a touching and very popular ballad called Sara, the name she would have given to her baby. Sinead O’Connor also wrote about her abortion experience in a song titled My Special Child.

Few who have experienced the trauma of abortion want to publicly celebrate it. Quite the opposite. Millions of grieving mothers and fathers are living, breathing testimonies to the fact that abortion often inflicts grave emotional and spiritual wounds.

Celebrating abortion is both an extreme and wildly unpopular strategy. Most Americans — pro-life and pro-abortion — are repulsed by the idea of applauding or making light of an action that results in the death of a baby over 2,500 times a day.

By highlighting this extremist behavior we can make additional converts to our cause.

  1. THE EPIGENETIC OUTCOME OF ABORTION–
    ABORTIONISMO—
    by Samuel A. Nigro, MD, Copyright c 2017, retired, deplorable ad hominem pamphleteer, clinical psychiatrist, Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals—(samizdat)
    a culture accepting abortion has unconscious psychosocial “killing” epigenetics throughout…or will have…Abortion kills empathy. No empathy, no heart, no mind. Abortion kills personhood–one’s “personhood” begins as an embryo, and it is so PERSONAL that you do not come along with the next pregnancy–Your embryo life defines you PERSON-ally. Abortion means the death of another is not felt. Agree with me or else. Evil is internalized and desired…people are dePERSONalized; and acting out killing, one way or another, increases “self-delusions” by the thoughtless acting out of emotions which later destroy Nature’s meaning of “sex” and destroy the meaning of “gender.” All is denied of course, but living a lie is unlimited and becomes one lie after another…all “decreasing reality and being” (which is the definition of “evil”). “TERRORISM,” all violence and virtuelessness are hate-full “ABORTIONISMO” today. Yes. The psychological acceptance of abortion (and contraception) have resulted, after about fifty years, in: (1) the acceptance of killing as a “solution” in the social structure, and “killing” pervades subliminally, which “kills America” in those for abortion, i.e., the Berkeley Campus un-Americans et al; (2) the destruction of childhood to the degree of selling children for sex use; (3) education became brainwashing and indoctrination to “kill” and no longer “how to think and reason” but only to imitate liberal professors; (4) the sex act changed from nature’s reproduction method, by the psychosocial pheromone known as “marriage” for humans, to an emotional excretory act which as a social construct has destroyed the meaning of human “gender” thereby emotionally deforming human relationships primarily into planetary pollution of global masturbation (“sexcretion”); (5) the turning of “journalism” into worthless sensational fantasies of false news, sex and violence which every one should absolutely ignore and never pay for because, now, journalism will make you crazy; and (6) the loss of the basic Judeo-Christian virtuous raising of children which results in humanbeingness being replaced by drug use and criminality; all by suggestibility diseases. Abortionismo leads to sexismo which leads to replacement of liberty by hate and replacement of cultural decency (childhood, motherhood, fatherhood, and decent family life) by unnatural sex and violence, i.e., the people turn from class to trash–welcome to America over the last 50 years thanks to virtueless press & media.

    The epigenetic “suggestibility disease” evils of the press & media are: social engineering, collective unconscious, propaganda, advertising, and public relations–all promoting the unnatural–which always turns into pollution, entropy and evil. Suggestibility and manipulation evils are made possible by
    1. Asch GROUPTHINK to conformity,
    2. Eichmann benign SUGGESTIBILITY and immunity to evil and to the sexual
    unnatural which destroys faith, hope, and charity,
    3. Milgrim SHOCKMACHINE OBEDIENCE to the immoral,
    4. Zimbardo POWERMADNESS control,
    5. LAW WORSHIP capitalist LEGALISMS promoting the acting out of emotions instead
    of truth and justice,
    6. PRESSMEDIA fabrications and electrono-celluloid-ink fascist destruction of virtue
    and transcendence,
    7. BlackLivesMatter VICTIMISM paralysis into hate or dependency, and, worst of all,
    8. college professor INDOCTRINATION (instead of “education”) and SEDUCTION of
    students into self-deluded self-righteous liberal hate-projected mega-arrogance,
    9. the absence of Nigro THEOGEOCALCULUS which establishes Natural Law (1).

    Those first eight procedures are why we had slavery, racism, Nazism, Communism, Maoism and most other socially accepted cultural entropy so harmful to mankind and the planet. And today, these evils are now why we have abortion, contraception, assisted suicide, euthanasia, haremfeminism, gay genital maniacs, criminal gangs, Islam, Columbine-like macro abortions (2) and most human fragmentation and violence pervasive to America, and the world. Like all evils, abortion proves a neurological basis with “mirroring neurons” leading to conformity and pathological over-empathy, i.e., by mirroring neuro-reflexes, we become “like” the people around us, even unconsciously if not openly. We imitate what is offered, unless committed to virtue and transcendence. We are suggestible–and it is a disease when offering evil.

    THUS, EVERY CULTURE HAS ITS SUGGESTIBILITY DISEASE BAMBOOZLING AND CORRUPTING THE PEOPLE–and they do not like it when you tell them. (Joseph Conrad: We are the savages we think others to be. Mary Shelley: We create monsters who will kill us. Joseph Tainter: Great cultures collapse and dissolve. Richard Dawkins: Teaching is seduction. Hollywood: Celebritism sells destruction. US Supreme Court: Emotions are reality to be acted out, i.e., there are no “mental illnesses”. Norbert Wiener: Information spiritualizes…or increases entropy by destroying conscience. Sam Nigro: Words are angels…or demons.) Enlightenment-Age philosopher Voltaire, presciently, said of the press & media: “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities.”

    TODAY ABORTION SANCTIFIES KILLING by the listed suggestibility diseases which normalize evil induced by the eight listed procedures supra. Killing is okay in the subliminal unconscious now as suggested…initially by abortion but later manifest by kids killing kids with guns (What is the problem if abortion is the norm?). Kids, missing one-fourth of their birthmates, hate the culture and want to escape by drugging themselves–and often end up doing what is allowed by using guns. As a young turned-off kid said to me: “You bastards have killed a million of my birthmates, and I am supposed to be good to you?” The abortion movement and its culture are not confined to the unborn or their mothers. It is everywhere, usually “unconsciously”, from movies, to advertising, to police departments, to old age homes, to churches, to college campuses. All accepting abortion are suggested to be murderers and have embraced evil (“the creation of non-being”) as acceptable. This is true for any culture in which press&media incorporates, accepts and promotes “killing” (however hidden and denied) into its social structure.

    AMERICA IS DEAD. All accepting abortion are suggested to be ersatz murderers and the psychological acceptance of “killing” as a solution unwittingly destroys at least part of their consciences and the Founders’ Principles which created America. Abortion is subliminally promoted and repeated everywhere now by adult sex and adult violence destroying childhood, parenthood, and family, in advertising and celebrity sensationalism. Thus, abortion is actually lived out in the larger social whole by every violent and unnatural act occurring daily in the US because of Roe v. Wade and Obergefell v. Hodges by the deluded Supreme Court which now decrees “feelings” to be “reality.” By “substantive due process” (from the 5th and 14th amendments) from the Supreme Anti-Social Psychotic Jerks, abortionismo now includes absolute autonomy-of-self; moral-relativism; acting-out-feelings is no longer a symptom of mental illness; and the latest public-opinion manipulated onto the people by the Fraud Press is more important than the Constitution and words of the Founders. “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, of the mystery of human life”–and that so-called “right to define” one’s life is absolute Supreme Court idiocy (That “right” is the same as “tyranny” or “fascism” against those whose “heart of liberty” is “religious” or of the “chaste gender”, and it also may even contradict “Nature and Nature’s God” promoted by the Founders). The Court explained it would “exercise reasoned judgment in identifying interests of the person so fundamental that the State accord them its respect” (unless, of course, “religious” or “chaste” interests). The Court openly stated that the Founders did not know future generations’ so-called “heart of liberty” most recently being acted out which would require replacement of the Founders’ principles (which is sedition). Without Founders’ Principles, America is dead, as the Founders feared would happen–because citizens do not believe nor follow the Founders any more (nor the Ten Commandments in which the Founders believed and hoped those of the First Amendment would continue to instill in citizens). Relying on the First Amendment, the Fraud Press destroys those who, and the reasons why, the First Amendment was given to them. The “free press” has committed suicide and is now a Suggestibility Disease living by the eight listed evils above. Certification to Founders’ Principles and licensure are needed for journalism beyond a return to Sigma Delta Chi Ethics (3) as I never really expected when I wrote The Death of America in 1973.

    ALL NEED TO HEAR OVER AND OVER: Do not be suggestible and do not be a “mirror” of others unless it is virtue or transcendence. Thus, it is not just “fight or flight” with everything, but, instead: “Fight, flight, mirror, or ultimate human purpose (life, sacrifice, virtue, love, humanity, peace, freedom, and death without fear).

    POSTSCRIPT:
    The results are protests and riots from the Losers (nee’ Womens) March to Berkeley–
    ALL raging rioting mobocracy protestors NEED Octavio Paz’ “San Ildefonso nocturne”:
    Good, we wanted good:
    to set the world right.
    We didn’t lack integrity:
    we lacked humility.
    What we wanted was not
    innocently wanted.
    Precepts and concepts,
    the arrogance of theologians,
    to beat with a cross,
    to institute with blood….
    Some
    became secretaries to the
    secretary
    to the General Secretary of the
    Inferno.
    Rage
    became philosophy,
    its evil has covered the
    planet.

    ….abortionismo…for sure… the protestors setting the world “right”-acting out their
    emotions–as “feelings are reality” according to the insane US Supreme Court,
    just like Planned Parenthood (Murder, Inc.), kills the huddled masses
    of the unborn yearning to breath free…
    and there is no “breathing free” with the Koran or Mohammed or Sharia…
    Today’s world plague: abortionismo…the scribes and Pharisees of today’s press &
    media lead to acting out feelings…
    There is no breathing-free with the epigenetic manipulations, advertising, and suggestibility from the Suggestibility Disease tyrants of the false press & media and the contemptible U.S. Supreme Kooks…

    Any culture that slaughters its unborn is doomed and ripe for self destruction. This is what the progressives have given birth to. It would also do us well to remember Vladimir Lenin’s statement that “the keystone to a socialist state is through the control of healthcare.” And lets not forget Alinsky, “the American people will never accept socialism until the state controls their healthcare.” Joe Franchella

  2. I am very much against abortion as I don’t know how any woman can kill her own baby and live with herself after. I lost my first to a miscarriage and that haunts me. I don’t know the person that baby could have been. I see my two grown sons and think about this and I sometimes wonder if that baby is with the Lord in heaven and I will one day get to meet him or her. Wouldn’t that be wonderful!
