Man escorting woman from Planned Parenthood throws sign of preborn child

Posted in AHA, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , on June 2, 2016 by saynsumthn

A man who told anti-abortion demonstrators outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic that he has “already killed 7” of his kids, turned his anger at the protesters, eventually ripping the sign with the image of a preborn child out of their hands and throwing it across the parking lot.

In the video uploaded to YouTube in April, you hear an abortion Abolitionist ask if the people walking into the clinic know that “this place kills children.” As the man walks to his car with a female, the abortion Abolitionist tells him the “blood of the children are on your hands sir” as he calls out for the man to “repent” and “turn to Jesus Christ.”

The post-abortive man then gets out of his car, removes his jacket and quickly approaches the Abolitionist. As the demonstrator warns him that he is “being filmed” he proceeds to grab the Abolitionist’s sign.

The protestors calmly talk to the man who says they made “someone cry.” As the female the man escorted out of the Planned Parenthood approaches, he turns and takes her back to the car. Then the angry abortion supporter returns quickly to the demonstrator telling him to “Shut your F-ing mouth.” He proceeds to rip the sign from the Abolitionist’s hands and throws the poster, which contained the image of a preborn child, across the parking lot.

The angry abortion supporter then walks back to his vehicle and leaves. You can watch the video below.

Just one more example of the way abortion provokes violence among those who support it.

OK ballot initiative seeks to outlaw all abortions

Posted in AHA with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 12, 2016 by saynsumthn

A ballot initiative in Oklahoma filed by a Norman resident attempts to outlaw all abortions in the state. Thomas R. Hunter, filed the proposed petition in January with the Secretary of State to amend the Oklahoma State Constitution to “prohibit abortion.”

The proposed amendment, designated as State Question 782, Initiative Petition 406 reads:

    BE IT ENACTED BY THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA THAT THE FOLLOWING
    SECTION BE ADDED TO ARTICLE 2 OF THE OKLAHOMA CONSTITUTION:
    A. As used in this section:
    1. “Abortion” means the use or prescription of any instrument, medicine, drug, or any other substance or device to intentionally kill an unborn human being;
    2. “Unborn human being” means the offspring of human beings from the moment of conception until either live birth or death, including the human conceptus, zygote, morula, blastocyst, embryo and fetus, whether conceived and/or located inside or outside the body of a human female;
    3. “Conception” means the fertilization of the ovum of a female individual by the sperm of a male individual.
    B. It shall be unlawful for any person to perform, procure, or attempt to perform an abortion.
    C. Any person who performs or procures an abortion shall be guilty of homicide.

To get the measure on the ballot in November, Hunter will need to collect 123,725 signatures. But, according to Oklahoma state law any citizen in the state can oppose any petition on the basis that they believe that it the proposal is not Constitutional. Ryan Kiesel, executive director of the pro-abortion ACLU of Oklahoma said his group could launch a protest before the signatures are gathered to keep it off the ballot or challenge it later should the necessary signatures be collected to get it on the ballot.

In response, Hunter told Tulsa World, that “The question is whether or not the Supreme Court ruling that born people have the right to kill unborn people was, in fact, constitutional in the first place.”

“That is what needs to be challenged,” he stated.

“You can search day and night through the Constitution and you will never find one line supporting the idea that human beings can be deprived of the right to live simply because they are small, weak and unwanted,” Hunter added.

In addition to local abortion supporters speaking out against the initiative, 2016 pro-abortion presidential candidate Hillary Clinton also weighed in.

hillary clinton Planned Parenthood

Hillary for America Senior Policy Advisor Maya Harris called the petition another “unrelenting attack” on women’s rights, according to OkcFox, who received an e-mailed statement from the campaign.

Hillary Clinton believes Oklahoma women have a constitutional right to safe, legal abortion and to contraception, and they deserve to be able to make their health care decisions without interference from government or extreme special interest groups,” Harris wrote, according to the local Fox media outlet.

Banning abortion and common forms of birth control is not only unconstitutional — it is bad for the health of Oklahoma women. This initiative petition should be challenged and, if it makes it on the ballot, rejected by Oklahomans like similar measures have been rejected by voters in other states.”

If the abortion prohibition is not challenged in court, the Secretary of State would set a 90-day window during which proponents would need to gather the needed signatures of registered voters. If successful, the question could be placed on the November ballot.

Hunter, who refers to himself as an Abolitionist, told Saynsumthn that he is not accepting donations or raising any funds to promote his ballot initiative. When asked what others can do to assist him in his effort, he replied that he would like to, “ask people to pray for the state of Oklahoma that the people would repent of child sacrifice and abortion apathy.”

Planned Parenthood abortion defending woman grabs and kicks sign depicting aborted baby

A woman from the Abolitionist Society of Tampa took a sign of an abortion victim outside a restaurant to show patrons the reality of child killing from abortion.

A woman who said she supported Planned Parenthood and abortion became unreasonably upset with the sign and at one point grabbed the sign to throw it in the trash.

Woman gets angry at restaurant

She used all kinds of expletives and when asked if she ever had an abortion, claimed she had not because she got birth control from Planned Parenthood.

But- when pressured further, she said she was angry because she was sick of Christians shoving their ” F***ing – sh** of Christians shoving their Christian lies” down other people’s throats.

So, to recap, when pro-choice abortion activists get tired of Christians “shoving their views down the throat of others” you should respond by attacking the person who opposes abortion verbally and attempt to destroy their property?

Makes perfect sense – NOT!

Being in foster care is better than being dead says kid to abortion activist

Todd Bullis regularly stands outside churches and high schools in Little Elm, Texas to show the reality of abortion.

Todd Bullis school.

He calls himself an abortion abolitionist but is often referred to as the most hated man in the city.

He has been opposed by parents, school staff and even a councilman by the name of Nick Musteen.

Bullis has some unique conversations with students, parents, post-abortive women, and others he agitates with his graphic images of the abortion victims.

Foster kid talks to Todd Bullis abortion

Below is one of those conversations, a discussion with a foster child.

The sweet little girl recently learned that Todd and his wife had several foster kids, prompting her to speak to him.

She tells Bullis that being in foster care is much better than being dead from an abortion.

Man arrested after pointing gun at abortion activist outside Planned Parenthood

Posted in AHA, Guns at abortion clinics, Pro-choice People, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 16, 2015 by saynsumthn

Chicago abolitionist Troy Buccini stands against abortion regularly outside the Planned Parenthood Aurora IL.

He calls out to men and women who come to the abortion business to kill their unborn children.

Over the weekend, 21 year-old Clifton Ratney, from Indiana who was escorting a woman into the Illinois Planned Parenthood pointed a gun at Buccini while he called out for the life of the child.

My friends don’t bring her before an assassin,” he said as he called out to a man accompanying a women into Planned Parenthood.

“Come on down here sir. Come on, father to father sir,” he said.

It was then that Buccini noticed that Ratney pulled out a gun – pointed it at him – and then walked into the abortion clinic.

That did not stop Buccini who kept on pleading that they turn around.

Buccini said that after the incident one of the pro-lifers called the police and the man was arrested.

He also said that, as a result, the unborn baby was spared for that day at least.

The Chicago Tribune later reported the Ratney was charged with misdemeanor unlawful use of a weapon and disorderly conduct after locating the loaded gun in his waistband, along with 15 additional rounds of ammunition. The pro-choice man showed police a conceal and carry license which was not good for the state of Illinois where he used the weapon to threaten the activists.

Ratney was escorted out of the Planned Parenthood waiting room and arrested on scene. Despite the seriousness of the threat, Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office has denied any felony charges against the Planned Parenthood supporter.

There have been 2 other gun incidents outside abortion clinics in July where abolitionist and pro-life sidewalk counselors reaching out to women seeking abortion were threatened.

Bristol, Tennessee, police arrested Derrick Doss outside the Bristol Women’s Clinic abortion clinic in Tennessee after he brandished a gun at pro-life demonstrators as he walked into clinic with his girlfriend, while, police in North Carolina refused to arrest another man who pulled out a weapon to threaten abortion abolitionists there.

2 gun incidents outside abortion clinics only one arrest

This week there have been two reported incidents where pro-choice men waived a gun at protesters opposing abortion outside abortion clinics, resulting in only one arrest.

Bristol, Tennessee, police arrested Derrick Doss Wednesday just outside the Bristol Women’s Clinic abortion clinic after he brandished a gun at pro-life demonstrators as he walked into clinic with his girlfriend.

Protesters accuse the abortion advocate of pulling a gun on them but Doss told police he didn’t take the gun out of its holster and removed it from his vehicle because he felt threatened.

The abortion advocate has been charged him with aggravated assault.

The clinic is the same cite owned by an abortion doctor who threatened pro-lifers with a gun years ago.

Charleston Police arrested abortionist Gary Boyle after he pointed a gun at three abortion protesters near the back entrance of the Charleston’s Women’s Medical Center abortion center in 2010.

According to the police report, Boyle works at the center.

He also practiced at the Bristol Regional Women’s Center in Tennessee where this latest incident occurred.

Meanwhile, police in North Carolina have refused to arrest another man who pulled out a weapon to threaten anti-abortion protesters.

In the video below – you can see the man who was in the parking lot of the A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh pulling out his gun when the demonstrators spoke to him:

A group calling themselves Abolitionists against abortion said the man pulled a pistol as they offered help to him as he drove a woman to the clinic.

Gun at NC abortion clinic

Protesters outside the A Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Raleigh, North Carolina immediately called police who took 20 minutes to respond they stated.

Police let the armed pro-choice man go, protesters reported, failing to arrest him or charge him with any crimes.

Instead, they claim that days earlier police opened a criminal case on the abolitionist protester at this same location for, “having their sign touching a fence and “blocking the public right of way” with tiny fetal models laying on the grass nearby the curb.”

The video shows below shows Police Captain Corrigan of the Raleigh Police Department, telling the abolitionists that there is nothing to charge the gun brandishing pro-choice man.

The anti-abortion group said that they later observed the offender enter the abortion facility after police removed his handcuffs and let him go. Afterwards they say that police escorted the man to his car and shook his hand.

UPDATE: The Johnson City Press had more on the Bristol Tennessee incident:

dERRICK DOSS b320af1e3

    Police were called to the Bristol Regional Women’s Center on West State Street just before 8 a.m. and learned of an argument between a protester and a patron of the business, Derrick Doss, 32,

    Police said Doss went to his vehicle and retrieved a handgun, which he loaded by racking the slide. Police found Doss with a handgun.

    After gathering evidence and taking witness statements, police charged him with aggravated assault. He was taken to the Sullivan County Jail.

Pro-life e-book analyzes recent debate with AHA

Posted in AHA, Incrementalist with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

It began with a debate between the strategy of immediatism vs. incrementalism in ending abortion.

AHA Debate prolife Gregg Cunningham 953565359761892780_n1

It was held this past April in Tulsa between pro-lifer Gregg Cunningham of the Center for Bioethical Reform and T. Russell Hunter a founder of the abolitionist group Abolish Human Abortion (AHA).

After a series of articles about the debate a group of pro-life leaders have decided to publish an e-book detailing their thoughts addressing issues brought up during the debate.

Abolition of reason prolife AHA 2015-06-01_1719-e1433197400874

Abolition of Reason: Pro-life apologists deconstruct ‘Immediatist’ ideology” was written by pro-life blogger Jill Stanek, Steve Hays of Triablogue, Scott Klusendorf of Life Training Institute, Dr. Michael New of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, Jonathon Van Maren of the Canadian Centre for Bio-Ethical Reform, and Clinton Wilcox also of LTI.

Pro-lifers are in their rights to analyze the debate and they are not alone.

Russell Hunter has vowed that Abolitionists will produce their own response, calling the various posts “misinformation and distractions“:

AHA when Jill finishes digging

Jill Stanek opens the e-book by writing the prologue, where she analyzes Hunter’s readiness for the debate, “Hunter came ill-prepared to support his actual premise, that pro-life incrementalism hasn’t and doesn’t work, and Cunningham quickly disproved Hunter’s claim that immediatism is buttressed by historical figures like William Wilberforce, Abraham Lincoln, and Martin Luther King, Jr. None of the aforementioned were immediatists in practice. They were incrementalists.

Klusendorf addresses the tone of the aftermath and the way that AHA supporters launched personal attacks following the debate, writing:

    an AHA supporter named Toby immediately attributed to her [Jill Stanek] the worst possible motives and all-but damned her to Hell. “Instead of dealing with incrementalism or immediatism on Biblical terms, she chooses to make an idol out of the abortion fight. Her career is more important to her than her soul…

Toby Idol

Adding, “That’s not the language of someone eager to engage his critics with thoughtful responses.
It’s the rhetoric of a spiritual weirdo with a severe prophet complex. What he can’t secure with a syllogism, he’ll pick up with a spiritual power play. Indeed, one high-up AHA rep requested that I publicly repent for not posting his link announcing the pending debate. That my Facebook page is mine to post or not post as I please apparently never crossed his mind. The arrogance of such a request is mind-blowing.”

Van Maren summarized Hunter’s actions after the debate this way, “Hunter took to Facebook immediately to first half-apologize for his performance, but then quickly become snarky and sarcastic again as his supporters assured him that he was, of course, the visionary they all knew him to be.”

ICAS then apology 32402386_491352267_n

Adding, “The most mind-boggling post surely goes to the “International Coalition of Abolitionist Societies,” who actually posted a fake apology for Gregg Cunningham being “a jerk” and for his so-called “ad hominem attacks.” I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a stunning display of immaturity and sour grapes, with the exception of the out-and-out character assassination that the “abolitionists” across social media, in a series of adolescent temper tantrums, have launched against Cunningham, all the while accusing any and all respondents of “slander.”

(Note, as pictured above, the ICAS was eventually edited and an apology was issued after pro-lifers criticized the poor sportsmanship of the post.)

But, I also noticed the poor way that AHA responded – addressing it privately with many of their members. After all, it was AHA who repeatedly requested the debate to begin with.

After repeated criticism of the pro-life movement, I noticed how quickly Russell retreated to a martyr complex when the criticism was directed at him:

Back to the e-book.

Hayes addresses the difference between what he describes as the “right message” vs. the “cost of innocent lives.”

With respect to AHA,” Hayes states.

“nothing is easier than to take an “uncompromising” stand when it has no chance of happening. In that respect, AHA is like Republicans who are rhetorically pro-life, rhetorically uncompromising. There’s no price to pay. No real-world consequences. It’s just self-congratulatory talk.”

Adding this observation, “On the one hand they set the bar very high. On the other hand, they slide under the bar. The measure of progress isn’t consciousness-raising, but the abolition of abortion. By their own oft-repeated sloganeering, that’s the only “fruit” that counts. The total abolition of abortion. AHA confuses leaves with fruit. Thus far, AHA is a leafy, but fruitless tree. Lots of leaves, no fruit.”

T Russell Hunter Univ Memphis AHA 2014

Stanek fires back at Hunter for his relentless accusations that that all pro-lifers wish to do is to “regulate” not end abortion, writing, “It is slander of the worst kind for Hunter to claim the end game for pro-lifers is that abortion be “safe, early, and painless.” He knows perfectly well why we pursue incremental efforts.”

Wilcox agrees, “Pro-life people want the immediate end to abortion. Incremental legislation is our strategic method for getting there. Planned Parenthood knows this. Pro-choice writers like Katha Pollitt know this (it plays a major theme in her recent book Pro: Reclaiming Abortion Rights ). The only people who don’t seem to get that are the self-proclaimed “abolitionists.”

Klusendorf piles on, “Hunter never once said how his policy of immediatism plays out in the real world. How, exactly, does it work to insist on the immediate abolition of abortion? Got the votes for that? Here is where Hunter’s argument is truly self-sealing. He states that if only all incrementalists would become immediatists, we could take the ax to the root and win.

“So there you have it. When you can’t explain how your strategy actually works in the real world, you just fault your opponents for your failure to execute. This reminds me of faith healers who blame the victim for “not having enough faith” when he doesn’t immediately recover from a systemic illness….”

Stanek fires back again, “Hunter knew when he launched AHA in 2011 immediatism would take “a long time,” and there would be “a long period in which it was impracticable.” But he had no safety net prepared for the children from whom he would go on to rashly attempt to remove protections. He had no immediate and workable plan in place to save the children he was pulling the rug out from under.

“To this day, four years later, AHA has no cohesive, wide-ranging plan to save these kids.”

Aha uses Life Issues Image

Wilcox points out the hypocrisy of AHA’s criticism of the pro-life movement writing, “Hunter, while decrying the fact that pro-life organizations fundraise, hypocritically uses the fruits of those organizations’ labor.

Case in point….Wilcox states that, “AHA uses images of abortion victims that Cunningham’s group has spent millions of dollars to acquire over the years. CBR was the first pro-life organization to compile an archive of broadcast quality video and still photographs.”

TR July 5 2014 Plan B PLM

And then Wilcox addresses accusations by AHA that somehow the pro-life movement fundraising is bad by pointing out that AHA leader, “Don Cooper who holds himself out as AHA’s Executive Director, also fundraises. Cooper’s organization, named Abolitionists Northwest, made $101,159 in 2013 – $96,645 of which came from “[c]ontributions, gifts, grants, and similar.” A point I detail here.

Van Maren questions Hunter’s recollection of history, “Although I was well aware of Abolish Human Abortion’s selective historical cherry picking and theologically immature underpinnings, I thought Hunter would put up a better fight,” he states.

“An honest analysis of history shows us that there are no social reform movements that have ever managed to do away with an injustice in one fell swoop. Hunter’s so-called “strategy,” to play it fast and loose with the word, has no basis in historical fact and is, for the most part, based on his misunderstanding and in many places misrepresentation of the historical record.

Perhaps the most compelling point in the e-book is the chapter written by Dr. Michael New who details how incrementalism does, in fact, save lives, documentation Hunter was completely ignorant of during the debate.

New’s summary reads, “one of the most important reasons why pro-lifers should continue to support incremental pro-life laws is that these laws are effective. Academic research has been published in an impressive range of political science journals, economics journals, and public health journals. These studies have analyzed different types of incremental pro-life laws. They have analyzed data from different states and different time periods. There is a very strong consensus among scholars that incremental pro-life laws have stopped abortions and saved literally thousands of innocent human lives.”
