Those in the abortion fight try to act like there are only two choices a woman can make when she is faced with a “crisis” pregnancy. Those choices being keeping the child or aborting it. Yet adoption seems to be thrown out as an option entirely. You will hear women say, “I could never give up my child.” But you could kill your child, is that it? “What if ended up in a bad home?” And killing it is better than a “bad home.”
I am adopted so I take issue with all the reasons one has for not giving up their child for adoption. But I am not going to tell you my story. I am going to tell you the story of my brother, Jeffrey Alan Leichnitz. He recently passed away on December 18th, 2015 and though it cut like a knife when I first heard the news and I am not sure how I am going to get through my difficult times without calling up my brother, I know one thing: his story needs to be told.
Jeff was an incredible man and he had such love for everyone he met. He had a way of touching people’s lives and leaving them better than how he found them. That was true of me. Jeff was my first friend and my longest as well. I thought a lot of my brother, in fact, here is an article I wrote about him five years ago: https://blacknright.wordpress.com/30-days-of-heroes/jeff-leichnitz-august-13-2010/ Yet there would be no relationship had his mother not given up for adoption. He first came into the Leichnitz home when he was a mere nine days old. However, it would take two years of court dates and fighting for him before he was finally allowed to be adopted.
For many people that is a real fear, having a child come into your home learning to love them and then have the state take them away. Of course, that is a possibility even if the child is biologically yours as well. Jeff and I were both fought for and we both ended up with loving parents. Adoption gave my brother a home. It gave him two sisters and a brother who all loved him dearly. I was the closest to him, but all of us loved him.
Right before he died my sister-in-law told me that he told her, “I miss my Mom.” and when she responded back that she also missed her mother as well, he told her, “No, you don’t understand, I really miss my Mom.” He wasn’t talking about hs birth mother, he was talking about our mother. The woman that raised us and loved us. The woman that went out to see him in Oklahoma. The woman that worried about him. No matter what scrapes they had along the way, the truly loved one another.
The love of the Leichnitz clan created a truly great man. He was a man that loved his family. He was a man that loved Jesus Christ and dedicated his life to walking the walk. He was not a perfect man, none of us are, but always did his best to become a better man than he was before. A friend of my brother’s, David Webster, wrote my brother helped him get is business up and running. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jm_Iv2yJxB0&feature=youtu.be because that is the kind of man my brother was. To paraphrase Frank Capra: To my brother, Jeff, the richest man in town!
I could go on forever, but I think you get the point. But if you want to hear more stories, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1P2gHWF8fg. In the end, I would like to make clear, when you adopt a child, you are adopting the Jeffs of the world. You are making a difference in one person’s life forever and then they can make a difference in the lives of others. You are not taking in someone else’s throwaway, you are actually getting the gold they could not keep. There are those of us, who cannot adopt as much as our heart desires wants to, it breaks our heart to not be able to take in a child. But for those who can open your hearts and homes to the Jeffreys of the world. You will not regret it.
As I told all of you yesterday I attended the Women Betrayed rally. This is footage from it and I am the Black woman waving the sign as soon as the video opens. It was really a great experience and it really revved me up to do as much as I can for the pro-life movement. And as much as the focus is about the children, not the individuals within the movement, it is still nice to be on television and FOX News no less. LOL
The abortion giant has survived many things in their past. From the death of Holly Patterson to undercover stings where girls were told not to mention the age of the man who got them pregnant. But this one tops them all because it was always easy to sweep under the rug. This current debacle has Cecile Richards coming out of hiding to address the public and the accusation that Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts to various medical organizations and makes a nice profit doing so.
It is one thing to say an occasional death is part of the abortion industry and it is even quite another to cover up statutory rape, because the girls can always say they consented to the 25-year-old man sleeping with them. However, selling body parts is not something that easily palatable. Even pro-choicers will find this going beyond what is acceptable in a free society. This is the beginning of the end for Planned Parenthood. Pro-lifers have been screaming about defunding Planned Parenthood for years now, but it always fallen on deaf ears. No more. Congress is now listening. Of course, Cecile refutes any wrongdoing on Planned Parenthood’s part but do you really expect them to say, “Of course, we commit felonies by selling baby parts, what do you think we did with all those tiny bodies?” When Cecile issued an apology it was on behalf of the tone, not the practice of selling aborted baby parts.
“Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide. In the video, one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion. This is unacceptable, and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements,” said Cecile Richards, the group’s president, in a video out Thursday. “As always, if there is any aspect of our work that can be strengthened, we want to know about it, and we take swift action to address it.” (http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/16/politics/planned-parenthood-president-criticizes-gop-candidates/
I am sorry how do you compassionately talk about selling aborted children for their various body parts? The doctor found in the midst of the current firestorm is Dr. Deborah Nucatola. She discusses how she takes care to save organs like heart, liver, etc in order to get the best results for “fetal donation.” Of course, being that they are getting paid 30 to 100 a pop, it doesn’t sound like “donations” to me. What is interesting about this video is that liberal media giants like CNN covered the story. This wasn’t some little story put out on some little blog, like mine, it went viral. So much that the normally liberal media had to pay attention.
Cecile is under the delusion that this will pass like all the other times they have been investigated. That this is purely an “anti-choice attempt to shut down Planned Parenthood” but I don’t care how pro-choice you, very few can stomach the selling of body parts to medical research firms. Especially when these are baby body parts. What is the difference between this and say selling an adult cadaver to a medical school? The difference is the practice by which they come by the parts is already illegal. It is called Partial Birth Abortion and was outlawed under Bush in 2003. If you watch the video it tells you how they do the abortion breech-style. Breech position can cause complications with future pregnancies.
Of course, people are standing with Planned Parenthood. However, standing with Planned Parenthood at this time is not only a lesson in futility but it it also like standing with the Third Reich in 1945. As more and more of the horrors are exposed only the most psychotic will stand by the organiztion. Planned Parenthood is on its way out and as its doors begin to close as they already have:
Several Planned Parenthood clinics in Oregon and Iowa recently closed, citing that they simply didn’t have the clients needed to keep their clinics open. Why the lack of clients? Probably because of the lack of basic services.
The article then goes on to state the reason Planned Parenthood closed down in Texas:
In Texas, we have seen many Planned Parenthood facilities close shop. The reasoning here is different. Planned Parenthood is choosing to close rather than bring their current centers up to legal safety standards. In San Antonio, an annual inspection report showed that the Planned Parenthood facility had serious sterilization issues. They weren’t separating clean and dirty instruments. They weren’t testing their autoclave machine to ensure that it was still working. Lots of problems. We see this in many facilities…They chose to close their filthy centers. Pro-lifers didn’t force them to close. They chose to close them all on their own.
It is much easier to blame pro-lifers than to admit they provide sub par care. Meanwhile, Cecile Richards talks about how 1 in 5 women receive services from Planned Parenthood. However, that leaves a whooping 80% who don’t receive any care from Planned Parenthood. Shouldn’t those 80 percent just be wasting away somewhere? And if only 20 percent depend on Planned Parenthood and they are closing their doors then what is going to happen to those 20 percent without Planned Parenthood. They are going to be just fine. Planned Parenthood has long since ceased being a safe place for women and only cares about making a profit at all costs. It is time they are shut down. It is time our Holocaust comes to an end.

Abortion. That’s right, the most important election issue this cycle is abortion. Readers of my blog will most assuredly go, “Okay, we get it, you are anti-abortion, can you talk about something else already?” However, abortion continues to top the headlines. This past week we had Rick Perry, a Republican contender for the Presidency, say that he has “transformed” his view on abortion. After watching a pro-life movie in which a woman conceived of rape speaks, he is now saying he is 100% pro-life. There was also a couple who did an abortion at home and when they couldn’t quite fully kill their child they put the remains under the Christmas tree in a gift box. http://www.fox8.com/news/nationworld/ktla-aborted-fetus,0,250932.story
Much to the chagrin of the fiscal conservatives and zealous pro-choice liberals the issue of abortion is not going away and will have a defining impact on this upcoming election. Especially with PersonhoodAmendments appearing on ballots throughout the nation, the question of abortion can no longer be ignored. The abortion issue is to this election what slavery was to the 1860 campaign trail. It is now coming to the forefront of our nation’s consciousness. Its importance cannot be understated because we are talking about human lives here. Regardless of what the pro-choicers would like you to believe the biological debate of when life begins was settled in the 19th century. The anti-personhood argument is philosophical, political and theological in nature, not scientific therefore has no rational basis to seek a denial of human rights and protection under the law.
With this issue not going away, how could one successfully resolve it? One way is already being done, states are proposing their own Personhood Amendments that would become effective when Roe v. Wade gets overturned. In fact, South Dakota is the only state not to have any abortion clinics within its territory. So we see that it can be done. Education of basic fetalogy and the current stage of the baby have had a profound effect on women obtaining abortions afterwards. Continuing to educate women along with allowing them to see the ultrasound if they so desire, give women all the accurate information they need to make a better choice. Finally, extending the 14th amendment to include the unborn would be the easiest way to make sure that the unborn are given the rights they deserve without having to pass a new amendment which would be time consuming and may not pass the ratification process.
You may wonder why I did not pick an easy answer like the economy as the most important issue, well because the elimination of 50 million human beings takes precedence but also because it does have a profound effect on the economy. By annihilating 50 million potential workers, we have created the economic dire straits we find ourselves in now. The only addition to the population and henceforth workers has been through immigration-legal and otherwise. We are below replacement levels and we are hemorrhaging not only in the moral sense but in the economic sense as well. Therefore, it is imperative we correct this situation or else we will find ourselves on the road to extinction. At that point the economy won’t mean very much will it?
A young man in New Mexico, Greg Fultz, is being taken to court for putting up a billboard about his ex girl-friend. He drew an outline of a two month old baby with the words: “This Would Have Been A Picture Of My 2-Month Old Baby If The Mother Had Decided To Not KILL Our Child!” He claims that she had an abortion against his will. She claims she had a miscarriage and so the story goes.
However, this story is not just merely about one couple’s legal battle, it is about the right that men have to raise their own children. Whether or not she aborted, many women have aborted a child without the consent of the father. On the other hand, women who didn’t want an abortion have been forced by husbands and boyfriends to abort the child. In the end, it is one parent’s desire to kill the child over the other’s. The question here is not about father’s right or mother’s right but does anyone have the right to kill an unborn child? In either scenario, the resounding answer is no. It is not right when the mother unilaterally decides, nor is it right for the father to force an abortion onto the mother.
Who speaks for the child? Does anyone even care that in each case, an innocent child dies for someone else’s choice? What kind of nation are we becoming that we care more about our own hedonistic desires than we do the lives of our children? The abortion debate of today is not new, it has been fought under different names throughout our history-slavery, segregation, but abortion is the ultimate civil rights issue because its victims are voiceless. Whereas, we have slave journals to illuminate what it was like under the chattel system, we don’t have any first hand accounts from the unborn. We do have the mother’s perspective-at least the ones that regret it. We also have the stories of those who don’t but we never get the child’s side and fathers seeem resoundingly silent on the subject. Until now anyway. Until Greg Fultz put it on a billboard for all the world to see.
Granted, there was an incident a few years back when another young man shot his girlfriend at an abortion clinic because he didn’t want her to kill their baby and occasionally you get a song like Happy Birthday from Piper but overall the fathers are left out of the debate altogether. In fact the only time it is even considered “his” baby is when she has been raped and then she should abort it.
Whether Greg meant to or not, he has struck a chord. Whether you consider him a hero or a villian, he has spoken up not just on behalf of him but on the behalf of millions of men everywhere. Most importantly, he has unequivocally stated men will no longer be discounted in this important matter and that unborn children do matter to the fathers!
The pro-life side is winning and the pro-choicers know it and are running scared. America will no longer tolerate their lies and one day the voices they tried to silence will cry out in victory-Our lives will not be denied!
Nathan Gawronsky is a writer for the Corsair at Santa Monica College. I attended the Associated Students (AS) meeting yesterday and was given a brief tour by their AS President, Tiffany Ibuyani along with my ASO Presidents Shawn Adamski and Jaden Ledkins. I was impressed with the wealth of the community college but not with much else. LACC definitely has more heart. However, I digress, as I read this fluff piece in their Corsair newspaper I had to answer it back. The piece is entitled “Tea Party and GOP are mad as hatters.”
The following is what makes us “mad.” (Of course, I am mad, mad that people like these seem willing to sell my rights, my country and children for the criminal element of our population!)
The idealized America that Tea Party followers dream of is a place where gays live exclusively in Los Angeles (Sodom) and New York (Gomorrah), corporations pay record low taxes, women never get abortions, prisons grow bigger, and Muslims and illegal aliens can take a hike.
The liberal ideology is so much based on the acceptance of debauchery and criminality that if it wasn’t so highly lethal, it would be almost funny. Let’s take each piece that you think adds to society starting with homosexuality. Liberals are the same people who will condemn a person for smoking because it shortens their life and pollutes the environment yet have no problem with homosexuality which a Canadian study found shortened the lives of those affected by it from 8-20 years. Smoking only takes 13 years off your life. If you want to read the study for yourself go to: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9222793?dopt=Abstract
In a major Canadian centre, life expectancy at age 20 years for gay and bisexual men is 8 to 20 years less than for all men. If the same pattern of mortality were to continue, we estimate that nearly half of gay and bisexual men currently aged 20 years will not reach their 65th birthday. Under even the most liberal assumptions, gay and bisexual men in this urban centre are now experiencing a life expectancy similar to that experienced by all men in Canada in the year 1871.
So why would I promote something that is potentially lethal to so many people? Just like I don’t advocate smoking, alcoholism or drug use, I don’t promote homosexuality either. It does not make me a bigot, though that is a easy comeback for the liberal Left. It makes a concerned citizen who does not wish to see a life get snuffed out by homosexual practices.
Let’s go with the next one, corporations pay record low taxes. Unless you are a sadist, no one wants to pay taxes, everyone wants to pay the lowest possible tax and what is wrong with that? The less corporations have to pay in taxes, the more likely they are stay in the United States to do business. The more they stay here instead of going oversea, the more likely Americans will have jobs. The more Americans that have jobs, the less we have to spend on welfare and other social programs. The less we have to spend on social programs, the more money can be used for education and other necessary institutions. Everybody wins!
Onto the next one, women never get abortions! Liberal men have to be the most cowardly of the male species because they are the ones who advocate abandoning women and children to abortion so they can continue their wanton ways of seducing every woman who comes along. Abortion is not about the rights of women, in fact, Alice Paul-the author of the Equal Rights Amendments, said abortion was the ultimate exploitation of women. The original suffragettes were all anti-abortion. Abortion has always been about men trying to pit women against her children. In fact, Bernard Nathanson, who is now pro-life but originally got NARAL started is the one who convinced Betty Friedan to make abortion a “woman’s issue” because it never was before. Up to 60 percent of women are forced or coerced into abortion. Women have been killed for NOT choosing abortion. Women like Deena Moody who was killed by her abortionist boyfriend, Alfred E. Smith, for refusing to abort. A world where women never get abortion would be a world where women and children are safe and protected from pro-abortion predators. A women where women never get abortions means a world where all children are free to be born and lead the lives they were destined to live without interference from pro-choicers. It would be a beautiful world filled with laughter of children instead of 50 million dead!
Now, let’s talk about prisons. Is it a tragedy when you have someone who hasn’t committed a crime imprisoned? Yes, I know of such tragedies. That being said, I have also been greater traumatized because someone who should’ve been locked up wasn’t! The drunk driver who killed my father had a past history of drinking and driving and was allowed to keep driving and kill my father. So I don’t want to hear about the rights of criminals. I care more about the rights of victims. If you want to help those who have been wrongly accused and imprisoned unjustly then go to Voice of the Martyrs where people in other countries are imprisoned for professing Christ. Or does the point that they are Christians make you more antagonistic to their plight? I didn’t cry when Ted Bundy got fried. I didn’t cry when Jeffrey Dahmer was killed either. These men had caused untold damage and deserved the penalty they got. Their victims get my tears, not the murderers.
The last point-Muslims and illegal aliens can take a hike.
Most definitely!!! I don’t want to hear that all Muslims are not terrorists that is a false argument. All Muslims don’t need to be terrorists, not when you have a big enough faction of them that are. All Germans didn’t kill 5 million Jews during World War II, it just took a big enough faction to accomplish it though. All White people weren’t slave owners pre-Civil War but there were enough of them to keep slavery intact until it was abolished. The fact that not every Muslim is out to get us, doesn’t mean we ignore the ones who are!
Then we have the U.S.S Cole which was also bombed by Al Qaeda.
The USS Cole Bombing, or the USS Cole Incident, was a suicide attack against the United StatesNavydestroyerUSS Cole (DDG 67) on October 12, 2000 while it was harbored and refueling in the Yemeni port of Aden. Seventeen American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured. This event was the deadliest attack against a United States Naval vessel since 1987
Of course, 9/11 is pretty obvious and then we have Nick Berg who was beheaded on the internet, need I go on. Until we stop being attacked and until the Muslims revolt against this tyranny don’t ask to close my eyes to those who are trying to kill me and my people!
Lastly, really do I have to defend LEGAL immigration!? I don’t welcome criminals into my country. Come to my country correctly or don’t come at all! Respect my land or go home! If you can’t understand why I am against ILLEGAL immigration then I would say the mad hatter is actually you, not the ones who want the rules of their country to be respected! I don’t have time to continue, have to get back to studying and not breaking the law! What a tough day I have in store!
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!
