ENDNOTE: Is Chicago the “murder capital of the world”?



More than 5,500 women came to Illinois to have an abortion last year amid growing restrictions in the Midwest

One woman came to Chicago by bus from Indianapolis in mid-2017, pregnant but with medical complications that would have made labor and delivery potentially dangerous. Another woman traveled here from Wisconsin in March because she didn’t have the financial means or will to have a baby.

Sadly, I guess that really does make Chicago the “murder capital of the world”?

It’s a suicidal death wish of humanity.

Tens of thousands of people traveled from across the United States for the 45th annual March for Life on the National Mall on Friday.

President Donald Trump was the first sitting U.S. president to address the marchers live from the Rose Garden at the White House, and many lawmakers also spoke from the stage, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI).

Just as I think the Gooferment should have no roll in “marriage”, I think its roll in “abortion” is all wrong.

This is, first and foremost, a very private decision of a Mom. One size fits all Gooferment solutions is not the way to change “hearts and minds”. 

To this fat old white guy injineer, it’s like putting a screw with a hammer. (No humor intended!)


  • The Federal Gooferment shouldn’t be forcing people of conscience to pay for things they find abhorrent.
  • The Federal Gooferment shouldn’t be using anyone’s money to influence public policy in foreign countries.
  • The States should be the logical place where “abortion and contraception” should be made. If not, even closer to the people.
  • The Right To Lifers need to recognize that once a child is born, responsibility doesn’t end.
  • The Pro-Choicers need to recognize that they are advocating murdering a human being for convenience.
  • Everyone needs to turn down the volume and turn up the compassion. As Judge Judy says: “Put on your listening ears”.
  • Everyone needs to think about the meme that “we” may have aborted the next Motzart, the next Hawking, the person to cure cancer, or maybe the person to bring about world peace.
  • Rich white women and rich make politicians should stop saying that contraception is too expensive for ordinary people to pay for; that just trivializes the issue.
  • Abortion should be a rarity; not a convenient form of birth control.

And why was the Big Media silent in its coverage of this “march”, while over covering the “other” march. (Could it be because it was “leftist”?)

ENDNOTE: Top bishops clash


Top bishops clash over excommunication of Catholics who support new abortion bill
Archbishops Diarmuid Martin and Eamon Martin disagree strongly on how to handle issue

A row has erupted between two senior Irish Catholic church leaders over the treatment of those who support the new abortion legislation.

Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin and Coadjutor Archbishop of Armagh Eamon Martin have clashed as the abortion debate intensifies. Eamon Martin is newly appointed and will be Ireland’s top clergyman when he takes over from Cardinal Sean Brady in a year.

The Irish Independent reports that their sharp disagreement is the first sign of division among senior clerics.

The Dublin Archbishop spoke after Archbishop Eamon Martin warned that politicians who knowingly introduced legislation ‘aiding and abetting abortion’ should not approach a priest looking for communion.

Archbishop Eamon Martin said that legislators who supported abortion were excommunicating themselves.

He said: “You cannot regard yourself as a person of faith and support abortion.

“If a legislator comes to me and says, ‘Can I be a faithful Catholic and support abortion?’ I would say no. Your communion is ruptured if you support abortion.

“You are excommunicating yourself. Any legislator who clearly and publicly states this should not approach looking for communion.”

In response Archbishop Diarmuid Martin told the paper he does not want to see the sacrament of communion being used ‘for publicity reasons’ by anybody in the debate surrounding abortion.

If Holy Mother Church’s Leadership can’t agree to defend “the brand”, what hope does the Church have?

Sorry, but if you can’t enforce doctrinal discipline, then scratch “bad example” as a sin.

If “we” believe some thing is sacred, like life, then how do we rationalize this “controversy”.

I don’t pretend to be a saint, but when I move to NH and run for office, (Lord willing), I’ll defend life.

ENDNOTE: Cardinals should lead!


Cardinal joins protest over Boston College commencement honor for Irish leader
CWN – May 10, 2013

*** begin quote ***

Responding to protests by a lay Catholic activist group in Massachusetts, Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley has denounced plans by Boston College to award an honorary degree to Irish prime minister Enda Kenny.

Kenny is scheduled to be the principal speaker at Boston College commencement exercises on May 20. The Catholic Action League of Massachusetts had urged Catholics to oppose the invitation to Kenny, and to express their concerns to officials at the Jesuit- run school, to Jesuit superiors, and to Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley.

*** end quote ***

It’s about time!

Now how about all the CINO politicians!

Revoke their right to proclaim that they are “Catholic” if they vote for abortion.

That’s for a start.

The Church should tell them how to vote, but should vigorously and publicly object to them labeling themselves as “Catholic”.

I’ve been to Funeral Masses where the Priest will take time to gently, politely, and lovingly explain to the Congregation about Communion and what it means. Should they do any less for the CINO politicians.


Burns my butt. I’m a sinner; we all are. I just don’t proclaim that I’m a saint.

POSITRACTION: White House’s “No Comment” should activate moral outrage


White House: No Comment on Gosnell “Beheading” Babies in Abortions
by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com | 4/15/13 1:59 PM

*** begin quote ***

White House spokesman Jay Carney today said President Barack Obama has no comment on the murder trial involving late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell.

*** end quote ***

Yeah, I know, what’s positive about this.

It’s rubbing the killing of babies under the rubric of “choice” in all the Sheeple’s noses.

I’ve read the stories and it takes a pretty hard heart not to cry.

I think back what my now-departed wife and I would have given to have any of those children entrusted to our care.

I find this a POSITIVE story, because until we look EVIL right in the eye, call it for what it is, and get enraged, then we can turn a deaf ear and a blind eye to it.

I hope every Jasper, regardless of their position on the issue, reads every story.

It motivates me to action. I hope it will you.

Frau Reinke and I would have loved any of those 330 M babies.

I am going to cry.

POSITRACTION: Before the U.S. Supreme Court by pro-life advocates


Supremes asked to restore speech rights to pro-lifers

Abortion 340x175

*** begin quote ***

A Colorado court’s decision that revealing the truth about abortion – through images of the results of the violent procedures – can be banned is being challenged before the U.S. Supreme Court by pro-life advocates who charge that such content-based restrictions are unconstitutional.

The case is being presented to the high court by officials with the Thomas More Society, who have engaged Professor Eugene Volokh of UCLA’s law school, a widely acclaimed, prolific First Amendment legal scholar and author, to take the lead.

Volokh, who blogs at the Volokh Conspiracy, drafted the petition for certiorari which was filed with the U.S. Supreme Court this week.

It’s a shame we only hear of these valiant warriors in the alternative media.

I’ve sent them a couple of bucks from time to time. 

But, does that do enough?

As a little L libertarian, I don’t want the Gooferment with its heavy handed one size fits all diktats forcing people to do or not do anything. That includes restricting “free speech” because the truth is unpleasant. 

Abortion should make people sick. 

It should be the rarest of procedures. For the life of the mother. Really, not some fakey diagnosis. Rape and incest. Hard choices for any women without my help or the thugs pretending to “The Government”. Certainly not as an alternative to birth control. 

I would hope that by the beauty and logic of our arguments we can sway people to “choose life”.

One way is to make it not clean and impersonal, but messy and gory and as repulsive an act as ever a man could do to a woman. (Most docs are men!)

Today’s Mario Day. March 10. MAR10 get it. And I know a young Mario. I can’t imagine the world without him. I don’t know how he will turn out, but he’s got a right to life. He had an older sister who he never knew. She “failed to thrive”. But she had every chance. I don’t know how she would have turned out. But I saw the pain of her loss in all my loved ones.

I keep coming back to the same point. We know so much but understand too little. Supposed one of these aborted babies was “scheduled” to cure cancer, bring world peace, or compose beautiful music. And, that has been lost forever. Like when you played the original Adventure computer game, if you killed the bird, then you could never get by the snake. (It’s a computer geek axiom, “don’t kill the bird”, meaning you don’t know what you may need later.)

So I’ll say prayer that this case goes “Life’s way”. And, I’ll be more alert to help the cause in the future.
