Right to Abortion and Right-To-Die Movements Attract Same Ideologues

Ideologues from 1960’s counter culture — homosexuals, feminists, drug cultists, hippy or Communist preachers — are gathering once again.  This time they are attempting to impose their views about dying.  They are obsessive about slogans:  “a perfect death,” “death with dignity,” etc.

If Planned Parenthood’s abortionist didn’t kill you in your mother’s womb, then leave it up to the Hemlock Society to finish the job.

The Hemlock Society, dba Compassion & Choice$

As you look into the backgrounds of these people and their connections in government, medicine, abortion, counter-culture drugs, you ought to be very, very concerned that these same agitators have powerful influences over what will happen to you when you are in a hospital or ambulance.

* aka Baba Ram Dass, the acid-taking pal of Timothy Leary (Leary died stoned on acid).  He is a Buddhist.  His typically hippy-like child-like un-Christian writings about death can be found on his website.

Example of his views on death:   “The Tibetan Book of the Dead was used by Tibetan Buddhist lamas to read to fellow lamas as they were dying, and for forty-nine days after their death.  Tim Leary, Ralph Metzner, and I began to see the Book in metaphorical terms as the story of psychological death and rebirth, even though it was originally intended as a guide through the process of physical death and rebirth. I now think that the idea of dying and being born into truth, or wisdom, or spirit is really what our business is when we talk about death. When you extricate yourself from the solid identification with your body, you begin to have the spaciousness to allow for the possibility that death is a part of the process of life – rather than the end of life. I feel this very deeply.”  Taken from “Dying is Absolutely Safe.”

Ram Dass came out as a bisexual.

Former Abortionist Surrenders Instruments to Pope

Life Site News Story

ROME, October 1, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A former abortionist’s far-fetched dream of surrendering the medical instruments with which he had once performed abortions to Pope Francis became a reality recently, when, to his astonishment, Dr. Antonio Oriente found himself face to face with the pontiff.

In a testimony posted to Facebook, Dr. Antonio Oriente expresses his surprise at the encounter, explaining that he had originally decided not to go to Rome for a conference of gynecologists to which he was invited, because of a father-in-law in “grave health” and the fact that there was no guarantee he could even see the pope personally. But at the last minute, he changed his mind.

Abortionist Peter Bours Hangs Up His Assault Weapons

Located in Eugene, Oregon,  it appear this abortionist has retired his abortion business for all time and gives Planned Parenthood his ‘blessing.’

Dr. Boars Quote in a 1985 New York Times Magazine article, page 4:

After an abortion, the doctor must inspect these remains to make sure that all the fetal parts and the placenta have been removed. Any tissue left inside the uterus can start an infection. Dr. Bours squeezed the contents of the sock into a shallow dish, and poked about with a finger. ”You can see a teeny-tiny hand,” he said.  At the sink and sterilizer, where the surgical instruments are cleaned, a nurse stood and turned on the faucet. ”I’ve been cleaning up after him for four years,” she said. ”We all wish it were formless, but it’s not. It has a form. And it’s painful. There’s a lot of emotional pain.”

Nina Rhea, director of Pro-Life Action of Oregon responds.

“Dr. Peter Bours once justified his abortion practice citing malpractice insurance premiums for delivering live babies.”Dr. Peter Bours is nothing better than a monster who abused his God-given freedoms.  May God have mercy on his soul.”
May pregnant mothers
take their children to
Jesus, who is Life.

Former Abortionist Dr. Nathanson Passes

Dr. Bernard Nathanson remembered for his profound pro-life conversion :: Catholic News Agency

February 23, 2011


Although critics of Nathanson’s conversion were  perplexed as to how a former atheist Jew became of the the most prominent Catholic pro-life advocates, Fr. McCloskey – who has aided in numerous conversions – said he wasn’t surprised.

“My experience in dealing with Jewish people whom I love dearly is that, the great majority of them, if they want to become Christian, they become Catholic.”

Fr. McCloskey added: “I think his conversion from atheism to Catholicism will be seen as a real turning point in our history.”

Slaughterhouse Live: Abortionist Gosnell

Slaughterhouse Live | Population Research Institute.

By Steven Mosher


How did Gosnell get away with such horrors for decades on end? The grand jury states that several Pennsylvania agencies share the blame.

First, the State Health Department stopped inspecting abortion facilities 15 years ago following the election of Governor Tom Ridge. As Brad Mattes has noted, “The politics of a pro-abortion governor put an end to inspections. Abortion mills got a free pass.”

Even a cursory inspection would have revealed that Gosnell’s own patient records contained enough evidence to convict him of performing illegal late-term abortions. But nobody bothered to check.

Second, the Department of State ignored dozens of complaints from women, relatives, and former employees about Gosnell’s behavior. The department could not bring itself to take action even when a whistle blower—a former employee of Gosnell—came to it and “laid out the whole scope of his operation.”

Gosnell should have been stripped of his license to practice medicine years ago. Instead he was allowed to continue to kill babies and mutilate women.

Third, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health failed to enforce its own regulations. The department knew that he was in violation of local health regulations. They knew that he had no medical waste plan. They could hardly not have known, since one of Gosnell’s own employees complained to them that aborted babies were being stored in the same refrigerator that employees used to store their lunches.

They could have shut down Gosnell’s mill for any one of a number of violations. Instead they turned a blind eye.

Fourth, the local hospitals did not report—as legally required—the large number of complications that followed from Gosnell’s botched abortions. Local emergency room personnel had seen it all: patients with torn uteruses and perforated intestines; patients overdosed on pain medication; patients with baby body parts still inside of them.

But they protected Gosnell—and thus failed to protect his patients.

The grand jury report also faults the National Abortion Federation (NAF), whose representative described the small brick building on the corner of 38th and Lancaster in Pennsylvania as the worst facility she had ever seen. Yet she did nothing and told no one, confirming the suspicions of pro-lifers that the abortion industry is incapable of policing itself. To put it bluntly, if you are willing to kill babies for profit, what won’t you do?
