A Homeless Woman and the Woman’s M

On December 15, I walked into the Union Rescue Mission. The place was full of of people I have tried to keep my son away from all my life, drug addicts, derelicts, etc and here I was bringing him into this nightmare. There wasn’t enough beds so a group of us had to sleep in a day room on air mattresses. This is my new life, my new existence. Which includes waking up at 5:30 to eat a breakfast, few if anyone ever eats. It is a world where mothers get their children taken away in the middle of the night and the kids are left to run around during the day with nothing to do. It is a world filled with anguish, tears and the occasional saint who wouldn’t take no for an answer and gave my son a coat that he needed. This is a world of women. No men except the young men who live here with their mothers. This is what the women’s march should have been about. I was literally a few blocks from this march and all the signs had nothing to do real problems women face.

It was literally like walking through the gates of hell. The signs had nothing to do with actual problems that affect women just the right to kill their babies and the right to have sex without having to deal with any consequences that may occur because of their decision. At the Women’s March there were 750,000 people. Yet despite having so many people, none of the real problems women face were all but ignored. None of the women here were at the rally. Instead they were buying clothes for their baby. Or they were asleep on the cold shelter floor because getting sleep during the night is almost impossible. None of the women here felt any of the woman dressed up as vaginas were speaking on their behalf.

The whole thing was a joke. From Madonna stating that she wanted to blow up the White House, to the women dressed up as our reproductive parts and the vulgarity that was widespread, these women were not about trying to secure justice for the real oppressed women around the world. They were mocking those of us who deal with these struggles, here and abroad. This was nothing but a grotesque, pro-choice rally being held in the Los Angeles. But it is understandable why they didn’t want to help us women with children because they are intent on killing their own and living a hedonistic life. They have no spirit of service within them but are totally self-serving. I literally felt sick as I made my way through the crowd. I was on my way to buy baby clothes with a friend of mine who lives at the shelter, and while were muddling our way through all we saw were signs that spouted rhetoric like “P***y grabbers” and other obscene material.

As I sat in a woman’s meeting today, we discussed what were going through in our individual.I brought up how they had a woman’s march and we weren’t mentioned. They were not getting our message out to the people who may not know it. No one debated me. Not one! You want a woman’s march, then come talk to the women here! Go to Saudi Arabia and talk the women there. Go to Boko Haram territory, where they are killing more people, especially women, than ISIS and talk to the women there! The war they speak about is not in Beverly Hills. It is at 545 San Pedro and everywhere else women are falling through the cracks!

Jan Broberg: Stolen Innocence and Beyond

Adonai, me, Paul and JanJan Broberg has been a personal friend of mine for years but even I didn’t know the trauma she had experienced as a young girl. Jan was always a source of light, someone who always had a smile on her face and an uplifting spirit. Yet her tale of abuse by a family friend who would kidnap her and transport her to Mexico meanwhile brainwashing her to believe that she responsible for saving an alien world by having a child with her kidnapper.  If she did not, she Jan_Brobergwas told she was she would immediately be vaporized.

Jan has shown a tremendous capacity to reach out to others. For years she has been speaking about her experience. She has been featured on ABC News, NBC News,  and other outlets discussing her tale of horror. Jan has not allowed what happened to her from following her dream. She has appeared on Criminal Minds (with my beloved Shemar Moore..sigh), starred on WB’s Everwood as Nurse Louise and was in Maniac with Elijah Wood.

She has a grown son and when not working on her documentary resides in Southern California. A lot of people don’t get an opportunity to interview such extraordinary people in their lifetime. I have an opportunity to interview two remarkable people, Sylvia Aimerito, and Jan Broberg. Here is Jan’s story according to her:

  1. Give our readers just a little background on your book and documentary both entitled: Stolen Innocence.

Stolen Innocence , the Jan Broberg Story, is about my childhood experience from age 10 to 16 when I was kidnapped, repeatedly raped and severely manipulated through brain- washing techniques by a trusted family “friend” and father of 5.  He moved into our neighborhood and took his time becoming a greatly loved newcomer.  He was charismatic, helpful, fun and unbeknownst to anyone a pedophile with maniacal intentions.  He spent two years becoming our best “friend”, grooming me, my family, our church congregation and the business community to completely trust him.   The book and documentary tell this story and reveal the subtle manipulations that lead to my disappearance not one but twice.  A four-year ordeal and beyond. This man found and taunted me throughout my early adult life and in recent years came to a University conference, with a gun, where I was speaking about my experience to a large group of women and their daughters.  He was apprehended and killed himself two years later.  We found out that at least 6 other little girls were harmed by him as well, both before and after my kidnappings. He spent one year in Jail convicted of rape of a child in Salt Lake City ten years after my second kidnapping.  He spent 19 days in jail and a short time in a mental institution for what he did to me.  He went on to molest a number of other pre-pubescent girls including his step-daughters who ran away because their mother would not believe them. We hope telling my story will spare other families and children from the terrorists living next door- we call them pedophiles- and most of the time they are people that we know love and trust!  Our film will help people see the subtle manipulations that trick children, parents, communities and congregations. No one is immune.

2.  Your mother is the one who actually authored Stolen Innocence, but of course, you were heavily involved in it. Whose idea was it to write the book and why?

 I asked my mother to write a history of what was happening at home while I was missing, a timeline of events as things were so jumbled in my mind.  I was severely drugged and had wanted to find clarity with how the events unfolded.  After I asked her to do this she and I started talking and she started writing.  Mom was always a natural writer.  She wrote poems and stories for us, her three little girls, and put together pageants and short plays for the community and church.  She also wanted to write the story as a family history and to clear her own heart and mind.  There were many things she needed healing from and writing was her oasis!

3.  Did you ever feel like you should keep this to yourself and what made you decide to share your story with others?

I didn’t want to talk about it for a long time.  I told the story to my sister and best friend when I first realized it was all a lie, the mind control, but after that I found I didn’t want to talk about the rape and the gory “icky” details, it was too hard at 16 –but later on, in my early 20’s, I started to share more of the details with my parents and others.  Then after getting married I realized that I wanted to help others avoid the nightmare, also realizing that we are so far off base talking about ‘stranger danger’… it’s almost always someone you know and love — this is why I need to get this story out to the masses and start a new conversation around child sex abuse and abduction.  We are missing the boat! Then in my early 40’s a dear friend who knew my story asked me and my mother to come to a big conference for educators and tell what had happened. It was during that experience that we met Charles Gil, a renowned superior court Judge, who had dealt with child abuse issues as an attorney and then as a judge. He encouraged us to share the story and publish a book so others could learn from our mistakes!

4.  How has the book and the film aided in your recovering from this trauma?

 I honestly believe that sharing your story is the first step to healing!  You cannot heal with a lethal secret destroying you from the inside out!  Talking about what happened is cathartic and it begins to unravel the many areas where you have been stopped or unable to live a full happy life.  You are also able to take on responsibility for what happened and that is freeing as well.  You no longer live as a victim but can move from that prison to the wonderful world of advocacy.  Life begins to be something so beautiful and worth living, especially if you are helping others! There is something magical that happens when people share their stories and know that they are not alone!

5.  Why a documentary as opposed to big budget film?

The world is hungry for true stories about real people and we thought that a documentary would get the important aspects of our story out to people who may be struggling with a traumatic experience themselves.  We also know that Hollywood tends to sensationalize stories like mine and sometimes that can be a disservice because we were a normal family that loved people, trusted our neighbors and wanted the things that most families want.  Our documentary will show the subtle signs that my parents missed, how manipulation happens to regular good people and hopefully it will be honest enough that a person watching may suddenly realize that someone in their inner circle is slowly leading them down a path of great destruction, pulling the wool over their eyes.  I hope that a documentary like mine will pull people’s heads out of the sand, help them see their own mistakes, and ultimately prevent this sort of thing from happening to the children they love.  Over a million cases of child rape were opened last year in the USA.  There are over 100,000 children who are being sold for sex in our country, some of them living in wonderful homes but the parents do not know! We hope this will help them see!  I’m hoping for a big budget film and series to come next!!

6.  Does it ever get easier sharing your story with others and how have others reacted     when they find out about this part of your past?

Yes, it does get easier.  I have felt such tremendous support from my wonderful parents, sisters, son, friends, X-husbands (seriously) and step-daughters that honestly I could not have made it without each one of them!  I also feel that as the healing happens, and it can happen, the ability to tell the story and share it honestly is a blessing for me and for those I touch.  I do sometimes get exhausted!  It takes it out of me… most people become my friends before they ever know about this so when they find out they are usually pretty amazed.  They mostly ask “why aren’t you in a mental institution”??!!  I answer by saying that I had ten perfect childhood years before this happened, wonderful parents, a basis of faith and some good counseling as well as self-help books and courses like the LandMark Forum along the way!

7. Part of your story includes brainwashing, what are some common misconceptions people have about brainwashing and what do you do to correct those misconceptions?

Most people think it is like the movies, torture, isolation, bright lights, etc.  That it is something that only happens to people who are weak, susceptible or lack intelligence.  There is nothing farther from the truth.  Very intelligent people can be manipulated, brainwashed, and the tactics are subtle, slow, and found across all races, socio-economic levels, ages, genders and belief systems.  It is as simple as someone making a threat to harm a loved one, and that keeps the person quiet.  It is sales tactics in a lot of ways.  Ever buy a vacuum or a timeshare and had buyers remorse?  Ever got entangled with someone emotionally because they make you feel good and compliment you perfectly?  Ever kept a secret because you thought you would get in trouble or someone would be hurt or punished?  Ever stayed in a bad relationship because you thought you were not worthy of something better or that you couldn’t do it alone?  Ever let someone get too close because you thought you would hurt their feelings? Ever go too far on a date because of pressure or fear of saying no? Ever been shamed into not telling as if you were the bad one when you really were the victim? Ever been rewarded for doing something that you knew was wrong?  These are simple examples of how perpetrators begin to capture and control you.  These are the basis of brainwashing and manipulation.  It is slow, subtle, charming, often exciting and ultimately lethal.

8. The kidnapper was a Latter Day Saint like you were then and are now. Did that fact affect your relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and in what way?

First, I am so grateful that I had a strong base of faith.  It was one major reason that I did not kill myself at age 16.  I knew in my heart that God loved me and that Jesus Christ was my brother.  I grew up believing in a long-term eternal view of things, believing that this earthly life was only for a small amount of time. I thought that we would live forever, eternally with our families and loved ones.  I truly believed those things as a child and I still do today.  I have gone through my ups and downs with God and yet I always circle back around to the love that I feel He has for me in every aspect of my life and the lives of every human being on this planet –no matter what you believe. I have always felt that and know that we are on an eternal learning curve. I question many things but not the LOVE OF GOD… I think this is what I am supposed to figure out on this earth.  How to love God, ourselves and others!  Every experience I have had has helped me learn and grow and hopefully help others, as well!  This horrific experience was survived because I had hope and faith and believed in charity and love and family and goodness at the end of the day.

9. What are your plans for the future?

A series based on my story and a very busy schedule filming as I want to play my mother! A lot of speaking engagements around the globe and perhaps a talk show that features youth and kids as well as adults… get kids talking to kids in their own language

10. Do you have any closing thoughts for our audience?

Be very very wise and don’t be afraid to see what is there to see!  Most people know on a gut level when something is wrong or off.  LISTEN!!!  Then know what to do!!  You need to keep a record, do NOT approach the person you suspect, get the authorities involved, file a report, press charges, educate your children!  Love them, teach them, give them guidelines and keep them from being afraid — oh, and eat dinner together!  Talk, talk, talk, and listen, listen, listen!  My parents did this those first 10 years, this is the base that I would eventually come back to!  It is what saved me ultimately, pure love, and lots of hope in the healing and helping the process!  Living a life that is lead with love- not hate, hope- not despair!  Remember that it is almost always someone you know, love and trust so you must see what you do not want to see!

Transgenderism: Is it the Death of Womanhood?

caitlyn jennerThe Left cries about the war on woman constantly while ignoring the real war on women such as child brides, sex slaves  and honor killings by their beloved Muslims. They also ignore the danger they are putting real women in by promoting transgenderism as some legitimate lifestyle and a severely confused biological man who should in no way be allowed to display is depravity around women and young girls. Transgenderism has taken off in this past year and if it continues unabated it will continue to destroy womanhood, especially Biblical womanhood.

My friend Crystal from Conservative Push Coalition had this to say about homosexuality in general but it also applies to transgenders as well in my opinion:

 I think we all sin. Our sins are just different. The problem with homosexuality is that it gets out there like a lifestyle, in other words, a sin that needs no forgiveness, which isn’t true.

Now sit down because you won’t see this on this site again but I am going to defend gays. Gay married couple enjoying wedding reception Gays are legitimate. That is how they truly feel, they are not trying to become something they are not. And just because they are a man that likes other men doesn’t mean they are trying to become a woman.They like being a man, they are comfortable being a man. While I think gays have issues going on of their own, perpetuating a fraud is not one of them. At least, the ones who are clearly out.

woman symbolSo what is the difference between gays and transgenderism? Gays have no desire or inclination to change their biological sex, transgenders do. Gays may say biology is irrelevant in marriage but they don’t say biology is irrelevant in all private moments of one’s life, transgenders say even going to the bathroom should be an uncomfortable experience for those who don’t buy into their ideology! And that is just the start. Being gay is about loving whom you want, transgenderism is about trying to redefine a whole biological sex based on your opinion. It is much scarier and detrimental than homosexuality by itself, at least that is my opinion.

Gender is not something constructed by man nor can it be replaced by simply adhering the opposite sex’s reproductive organs to your body. To say so is demeaning and demoralizing to women everywhere. [I am concentrating on men becoming women because that happens with more frequency than vice versa]

ALL HUMAN BEINGS—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a
beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose. https://www.lds.org/topics/family-proclamation?lang=eng

That is from former President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Gordon.Gordon b. Hinckley B. Hinckley. It clearly states that each person has a divine nature and destiny and that gender is part of that. We cannot separate them simply because we want to. When you say, “I feel like a woman.” that is both dishonest and demoralizing to women since you could not possibly know what it feels like to be a woman. It shows a world view revolving around your feelings, “I feel…so it must be true.” While feelings impact the way we see the world, they should not be the primary source for how we see it.

john-lockeAccording to the great John Locke, “A wise and omnipotent God, having made people and sent them into this world:

…by his order and about his business, they are his property whose workmanship they are, made to last during his, not one another’s pleasure: and being furnished with like faculties, sharing all in one community of nature, there cannot be supposed any subordination among us, that may authorize us to destroy one another, as if we were made for one another’s uses, as the inferior ranks of creatures are for our’s.

It follows immediately that “he has no liberty to destroy himself or so much as any creature in his possession, yet when some nobler use than its bare possession calls for it” (II. 2. 6). So, murder and suicide violate the divine purpose. So if suicide is forbidden, even by modern law (at least the attempting of it is, the actual successful completion of it they can’t do anything about.) is also not the mutilation of yourself just as wrong? The more we buy into this feeling based fantasy of womanhood, the more we lower the status of actual women.

How does it lower the status of women, though? It lowers the status of women because women become nothing more than a collection of body parts. If women are nothing more than a collection of various reproductive organs then we are no longer human beings and can become targets for those who would hurt us and  do so within the confines of the law.

A prime example of this is the current public bathroom legislation that seems to be popping up everywhere. But it is not just bathrooms that this false identity of transgenderism is creating harm for women. It is in other safe and public places like women’s shelters. In fact, in Canada in 2014, a man was jailed indefinitely after claiming to be transgender and assaulting several women in a battered woman’s shelter.https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/sexual-predator-jailed-after-claiming-to-be-transgender-in-order-to-assault  The one place where they should have been protected from such things is where they end up being violated. The women in the shelter are there because they have endured such behavior from those closest to them in their lives and to have to relive another episode in the very place they went to in order to escape it is inexcusable.

The more we codify this mental illness, the more harm we will bring towards real women and children. It is not up to us as a society to validate those who have these delusions. For the people who constantly talk about rape culture, this in no way helps to alleviate that problem, it only aggravates it. It is time for people to stand up and say we will not cowtail to people’s dysfunctions and the safety of my wife and daughters are more important than your so called right to present yourself as a woman. It is time for men to be men and that is especially true if you are a transgender “woman.”

 

 

 

UCLA’s Hidden Population-Student Parents

This  past weekend I attended the Parents Weekend at UCLA but I had to do so under the stealth of night because truthfully I was not even supposed to be attending. You see as a student parent, Parents Weekend is not for me. It is for the real parents of UCLA, not student parents. In fact, if you look at UCLA student parents are treated no more than your average club, not a real population.  Now if I was gay and attending UCLA, I would have at least 20 different organizations to join that promote my choice in being gay. From BlacQue to TransUP and Queer Alliance, I would have a real voice in how things are done at UCLA.

For instance, even though 15,849 women attend UCLA and make up 55.3 percent of the campus, [http://www.aim.ucla.edu] it is important to have transgender bathrooms because we can’t have a small fraction of people using the facilities that correlate with their biological sex, that is just not fair to the 0.5 of the population who feel like they are “women.” After all, it is not like sexual assault exists at UCLA and it is not like some sexual predator will use such a ruse to sexually assault women. Granted a sexual predator doesn’t need an excuse to victimize women but let’s  make it easier all the same. So why do transgenders have such a more powerful voice than the untitledwomen? It is because they have aligned themselves with the burgeoning gay community on campus and therefore have more of a say.

Now try to find 2o student parent organizations, it is not happening. There is just one-Students with Dependents. Before the weekend I asked for the demographics for the student parent population. They had none. About 300 students are a part of the program. There are 166 members of their Facebook page. Beyond that there was not much they could tell me. There are 3.8% or roughly 1100 Black students at UCLA. The average age is 21 at UCLA and 6% is over 25 at UCLA.  Given that I am  a Black 44 year old woman, I am used to being the minority. However, to have absolutely no statistics on the student parent population is downright disgraceful especially for a school that prides themselves on being “diverse.”

10696208_10204329945600749_866766391504023180_n

Dr. Kamran Shamsa and me.

Let me  preface all this by saying no one loves UCLA more than I do. Let me give you my back story. I arrived on the UCLA campus during the Fall of 2012. I was a transfer from LACC (By the way the transfers are 29 percent of the population and now have a new representative on ASUCLA) but as the quarter progressed, I began to get sicker and sicker. So I went to the Ashe Center to see what is wrong. If you take nothing else from this remember this: ALWAYS opt in for USHIP, ALWAYS!!! At the Ashe Center I met my guardian angel, Fara Anzures. After examining me she saw I was seriously ill and sent me to 100 Medical Plaza across the street for further tests. There I met Dr. Kamran Shamsa, the world’s greatest cardiologist if ever there was one. He became my advocate and fought for me to get surgery on my heart. I would require a triple bypass and have my aortic and mitral valves replaced. The surgeon who performed the surgery was none other than Richard Shemin, the best in the country when it came to this kind of complicated heart surgery. So I owe my life to these three angels. It is therefore with a heavy heart that this episode of feeling rejected by the same people who saved me-UCLA-leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

So now back to the Parents Weekend. When I filled out the  form for Parents Weekend I had to lie and state that my 11 year old son was my guardian. Now remember when you apply to UCLA you give them information about your parents. I told them that my parents were deceased, yet I still receive letters that read to the parents of Dena Leichnitz. Why do you even ask the question, if you are not going to utilize the information? In any case, my son was my surrogate “father.” I paid the money and then on Friday I went to the dinner. Being that I was a parent, I had to pick up my son from school before I could attend. So that meant missing out on all the activities that take place on Friday, which is basically everything. Nothing really happens on Saturday.

The day I picked up my badge and other parent weekend necessities, I went through everything and put on my badge. Initially, I wore it with a certain amount of pride until I realized everyone who was a student had a badge that read their name and was followed by UCLA College, Los Angeles. Mine said Dena Leichnitz, Los Angeles, California. The parents badge had written their name UCLA Parent, I had nothing. Not UCLA College, not UCLA Parent, nothing, I might as well been a party crasher and considering that is how I felt, it cut deep. It sounds silly but I wanted to cry. I wasn’t even being credited as being part of the school. So I wrote in big letters STUDENT AND PARENT. It was my outward sign of defiance.

My 11  year old son/father

My 11 year old son/father

On Saturday I attended one event. My son during this whole time was on the computers in Powell Library. After all, this wasn’t his idea no need to make him sit through a history class on a Saturday. On Sunday, he did sit through the Parent’s Council and once again I was told the higher ups would do what they could to have student parents on the Parents Council. I signed up my name as being interested in that was that. Even when I talked to Chancellor Gene Block, who was cordial overall, when I brought up how wrong it was not have student parents be a part of this thing I was blown off. “Well this is more for parents who are visiting out of town, we have other things for our diverse population.” And if that is not a verbatim quote, it is close enough.

 As a right wing zealot I should be the last one giving people a lesson in “diversity.” After all, no one is more for tradition, no more for mothers being called mothers and fathers being called fathers. No one is more for protecting the traditional family and marriage than I am. So then how did I become the one who has to be the one to tell the university that it is not okay to discriminate against a whole group of parents just because they do not happen to be a parent of UCLA student but ARE the UCLA student. How then am I then the one saying, your idea of parent needs to change? The whole thing seems surreal. I guess the lesson for UCLA is twofold, start paying attention to your student parent population, we are here and we matter and two next time you give someone a new heart be sure you don’t inflame a new passion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

House Votes to Defund Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood

Image via Wikipedia

In a victory for pro-life Americans and for unborn children everywhere, the House has voted to defund Planned Parenthood from the Obamacare health care law that passed last year.

Planned Parenthood is the biggest abortion provider in the country, though they also have an international arm as well. The House voted to defund Planned Parenthood 240-185. This is a wonderful sign that Planned Parenthood, an organization that was built on eugenics and bigotry, is finally going under and people like Margaret Sanger (the racist founder), Peter Singer (a Princeton professor that wants the right to kill children two years and under) and the rest of the demented group of pro-choicers are finally losing this battle. You can only deny life to a group of people for so long before they start to stand up!

The unborn are starting to “speak out” not through their own voice obviously but through technology like 4D ultrasounds and concerned
Americans who are starting to see the dangerous precedence that abortion has set. It is time the unborn were recognized as human beings in their own right! My son does not need my permission to live! My son does not require me to love him to make him a valuable human being! My son is a person in his own right and neither I nor any of you have the right to demand his death for your convenience!

In the meantime, the pro-life movement is winning hearts and minds. You can’t base a movement on lies and expect it to survive indefinitely. From it is only a clump of cells to abortion has no effect on women, the pro-choice community has built a house of cards based on illogical fallacies and blatant lies. Since most of its foundation is based on irrational, emotional responses and they are deathly afraid (pardon the pun) of anything scientific (do not be fooled, they abhor actual science because most of the time, it gives credence to the pro-life movement, not theirs!), it gets harder and harder to sustain their positions.  Their time is ending and one day there will be no more abortion in America and what a glorious day that will be!

Violence in Girls: A Growing Epidemic

Note: I recently came across this article that I started writing after the March for Women’s Lives in 2004, due to a lot of technical computer problems it was only recently discovered. I have decided to post it anyway, because truth has no time limit.

On April 25, 2004 there was a march in Washington D.C “March for Women’s Lives” that drew hundreds of thousands of women in advocating the right for women to be violent. Abortion advocates might scoff at such a simplistic assessment but that exactly what it was-spin and propaganda doesn’t change the essential truth. Abortion is violence. Not only on the fetus being assassinated but also on the woman herself. Abortion is painful and still leads to women’s deaths, it is just nice and legal now.

The next day an article appeared in AOL News. It reported girls are becoming more violent than ever before. The article tells the story of Nicole Townes, a 12-year-old African-American girl, who was beaten and put into a coma by girls at a birthday party. Her crime? Being kissed on the cheek by the boyfriend of the birthday girl. When the mother saw Nicole being kissed she is reported as telling her daughter “to handle her business.” Nicole survived the attack but it is going to be a long road to recovery. When we make everyone the enemy no one is safe. Nicole didn’t kiss the boy, he kissed her, but she was made the enemy not the boy. The mother would never tell her daughter to beat up her boyfriend, after all boys have more upper body strength and her daughter would’ve probably been the one to end up in a coma. Nicole was an easier target.

What do these two seemingly unrelated events have in common you ask? A woman thinking that it is okay to be violent. Think about it, when we allow women to act violently to solve problems such an unwanted pregnancy why should we prevent them from using violence to solve other more trivial problems? We tell them the fetus inside them is the enemy and deserves to be killed. How much of a bigger leap is it then to kill anyone, unborn or born, who is seen as the enemy? Nicole was the enemy and deserved to die for “disrespecting” her. Even though Nicole was completely innocent as long as she was perceived as the enemy she could be killed without remorse. This is what the abortion mentality has given us-violent girls.

The article pondered the increase in violence in girls while simultaneously reporting on the abortions rights march. Why are girls becoming increasingly more violent? Hmmmm, I don’t know, could it be that we have thousands of women marching in Washington saying violence is the solution to life’s problems I wonder? Could it be how we glamorize bullies? Could it be the way we tell them, as long as they are smaller you have every right to hurt them? Nah couldn’t be any of those things.

The article stated: Nationally, violence among teenage boys – as measured by arrest statistics and surveys – outstrips violence among teenage girls 4 to 1, according to the Justice Department. But a generation ago, it was 10 to 1. Schools report a similar pattern in the number of girls suspended or expelled for fighting. (http://aolsvc.news.aol.com/news/article.adp?id=20040426170809990012)

Roe v Wade has been with us for a little over a single generation. A generation is approximately 20-25 years. Roe has been around for 31. Yet within that generation violence among girls has risen 60%. This is unacceptable. The culture of violence is permeating within our young women and turning them into warriors. Women are increasingly becoming more violent in the media as well from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Xena, Tomb Raider and the current movie Mean Girls where a group of girls set out to make one girl’s life miserable depicts the growing violence among teenage girls. We no longer hold life to be sacred; it is kill or be killed. We are raising a generation of women rebelling against their womanhood and trying to “masculinize” them in the process. Critics will, of course, say there is no direct correlation between abortion and the increasing violence of women; that one simply has nothing to do with the other. That is denial of the obvious though. Abortion was supposed to end violence (don’t ask me the logic behind this though I haven’t a clue) against women and children. According to the pro-choice theory, a woman would choose to have a child and therefore wouldn’t abuse it. That hasn’t been the case, however, in fact child abuse has risen over 500% since Roe v. Wade was passed. So we only increased the violence against our children and a generation later we are paying for it through another generation of violent children.

Abortion rights advocates like to say, abortion makes it possible for a mother to be more loving to her children she bears since she can pick which ones she will keep. That it affects how she treats her children. They are right-it does affect how she treats them-she treats them worse. Women who have abortion are more likely to abuse their born children. How you treat your child when it is unborn affects how you will treat when they are born, and if you violently kill your unborn child why shouldn’t you violently kill your born one when it makes you angry? Or when taking care of it suddenly becomes inconvenient? The increasing violence among girls shouldn’t be surprising, alarming most definitely, but not surprising. We have inundated them with violent messages, we have made hedonism an art form and we have made morals a non-obligatory part of our society, is it no wonder a teenage girl can have a baby at her prom, throw it in the dumpster and return to her prom as nothing has happened? We sit in judgment of her but we are the ones who created her. The abortion mentality made that act acceptable. We have Planned Parenthood fighting against partial birth abortions, don’t we? All she did was have an after birth abortion. What’s the difference? Partial birth, after birth, they both are killing a newborn baby why is it only okay for a medical doctor to do it and not for the girl to do it herself? She was simply being self-reliant and think of the medical bills she saved the state from paying! Abortion rights advocates should be applauding her ingenuity! Instead they miss the message completely, “If she had let us kill her baby she wouldn’t have to done it on her own, and besides we won’t get those fetal parts to send to medical researchers.”

Violence has become a way of life for women in “civilized” countries. This is not strictly an American phenomenon. According to an English website: “Not only does 60% of abuse and neglect stem from mothers but the figure seems almost the ‘standard’ in many developed countries, e.g. UK, US, Canada and Australia.” (http://homepage.ntlworld.com/verismo/childmurder.html) So much for the notion that women are all sweetness and light. The idea that women can perpetuate violence towards their children and not have that spill over into other areas of their lives is a totally ludicrous assumption. Such ideas are never proposed when it is a man committing the violence, we wouldn’t say that a rapist acts ethical in every other aspect of his life and that his thirst for raping women has no effect on his character. If he is a rapist-that is his character, no matter what else he may do. So why don’t we hold women who abort to the same criteria as those who commit other atrocities?

As long as abortion is continued to be seen as a valid solution to one of life’s “problems” [Though having a child is hard, I would never see it as a “problem” but as a wonderful unexpected blessing.] there will continue to be violent girls. So the next time your child gets beat up, your liquor store gets robbed or there’s a drive by in your neighborhood, you might want to take a second look at the perpetrator because it just might be a girl.
