Introduction to Keynote Speaker William Baptiste SFO

at his March 19, 2017 Speech on Parliament Hill entitled:

Human Rights for All Humans because Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy

Before his Ph.D. studies at the Sheptytsky Institute and being a professor at Dominican University College in Ottawa (where he replaced Dr. Andrew Bennett, who was unable to meet his professor obligations due to his appointment as Canada’s Ambassador of Religious Freedom), William Baptiste SFO got his Master’s Degree with Honors at Franciscan University of Steubenville, where the Philosophy Chair testified in writing to the University President of “his tremendous academic talent” and “considerable power of mind;” a genius IQ which he has since used to discern and lay out clearly from the tangled webs of historical details the “golden threads” woven throughout history that give us all our Human Rights and democratic freedoms, described in his treatise The Education Necessary to Preserve Democracy Now Under Attack and his new book Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy:  The Antidote to Worldwide “Creeping Totalitarianism” Now Threatening Human Rights for All Humans, Religious Freedom, and Lasting Democracy (to be published in May).   At Franciscan University, the famous Dr. Scott Hahn wrote William’s work was “outstanding,” “excellent,” “clear, thoughtful and thorough,” and the Theology Chair Dr. Alan Schreck endorsed William’s Donum Veritatis – The Gift of Truth Ministries “as an effective and important means to spread the faith and to promote Christian unity… It really is a ‘gift’ to the ‘Internet Generation.’” He was invited three times to the ecumenical Springtime of Faith Rome Summits (Catholic and Evangelical Christian leaders meeting with Vatican Officials) for being considered “one of the dynamic leaders building the New Springtime [of Faith].”

Having already co-founded Baptiste Family Ministries with his “dear Bride Lorelle” (and six children!), he recently founded the new non-profit educational organization Human Rights and Freedoms Forever!  in response to several major assaults on democracy where he lives since 2015, similar to many current compromises of genuine democracy all over the globe, which he will speak on during his talk.

 

Prepared Text of the Speech

As a sometime university professor, now a “professor of human rights,” I could easily lecture for 3 hours.  But I’m not going to do that. Instead, I’m going to inspire you, first with knowledge, and then with WINNING STRATEGY.  Before your eyes this afternoon I am going to redefine the terms of the abortion debate from now on, and give you CONFIDENCE that we can WIN the victory of Equal Human Rights for All Humans, born and preborn, far more QUICKLY than you ever imagined.  And we can end all the incessant attacks on religious freedom and democracy itself at the same time, because in my book Democracy 101 and the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy: The Antidote to Worldwide “Creeping Totalitarianism” Now Threatening Human Rights, Religious Freedom, and Lasting Democracy, I prove in detail that Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy and this afternoon I can prove it with just the “Top 6” Facts!

This afternoon I can only give you a taste of all the educational resources and “Winning Strategy” Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! has been developing ever since 2 years ago the Ontario CPSO [College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario] took away doctors’ democratic freedom of conscience and free speech to object to killing humans by abortion, specifically to ensure “abortion access” unimpeded by the pesky morals of anyone who believes that humans are EQUAL and PRECIOUS – [which is] the [historical and logical] foundation of Democracy.  This means in Ontario [Canada’s largest Province] democratic freedoms of some citizens can be trampled as long as it means humans can be killed without anyone complaining – like in any totalitarian State.  [Additional Note: This is a worldwide anti-democratic trend.  Note that Presidential hopeful Hilary Clinton in the United States even said publicly (April 23, 2015) that her government, to similarly ensure abortion access, would use “political will” to “change” “deep-seated…religious beliefs” – just like in totalitarian States!  It was those who had already suffered specifically abortion-related attacks on religious freedom under the previous U.S. administration, desperately afraid of losing their religious freedom to her even more aggressive and anti-democratic “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” stance, who unexpectedly “tipped the scales” to give her “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” opponent – for all his controversial faults and unconventional political style – a landslide victory.  The first politician in decades to court the vote of those with democracy-grounding traditional Western “Pro-Life” values of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS, instead of ignoring the obvious Human Rights violation of legal abortion and allowing it to continue to worsen, was given a completely unexpected landslide victory – all politicians in all countries should take note!]

Once you realize how powerfully compelling and unassailable these new educational resources and strategies are, I hope that great HOPE growing inside you will make you hunger for more, and we can fill you! I encourage everyone here to fill out the sign-up sheets on the table for e-mail updates from Human Rights and Freedoms Forever!, and I encourage all to come to the Lasting Democracy Study Nights here in our Nation’s Capital every Monday 7-9pm, starting tomorrow evening (details on the table), to get more fully than you can today the solid Human Rights education which is necessary to preserve Democracy now under attack here in Canada and around the world because the West has forgotten the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and DemocracySimply knowing (and spreading to others!) the historical and scientific facts and clear, sound logic underlying and undergirding all of our Human Rights and democratic freedoms will go a long way to ending both abortion AND all the current attacks on the TRADITIONAL WESTERN VALUES HUMAN RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS ARE BUILT ON.  [Additional Note: Lasting Democracy Study Nights all over the globe, where attendees read together (or listen to the audiobook of) and discuss Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy and other works which instill “the education necessary to preserve democracy now under attack,” are part of the “Winning Strategy for the ‘Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with the ‘Culture of Death,’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’ ” which is introduced near the end of the speech.]

My book Democracy 101 powerfully demonstrates how traditional Western values are absolutely essential to BOTH the original development of AND to the long-term maintenance of Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms for everyone (and it identifies the “3 Wrong Turns” the West took that have resulted in the current “Creeping Totalitarianism”).  But to introduce any thinking person briefly to this “education necessary to preserve Democracy now under attack” I have distilled these following “Top 6 historical facts” (pertaining only to de-criminalized abortion as the last of the “3 wrong turns” – for the others come to the Lasting Democracy Study Nights! or read Democracy 101):

Briefly recalling first the cold, hard scientific reality that every single human life is a unique living individual biological human organism with absolutely unique human DNA utterly distinct from his or her parents at every age and stage of his or her human life-cycle from zygote (fertilized egg) to senior adult, and this is not in dispute but is established scientific fact, I add to this:

The Top 6 Facts (or 6 “Clusters of facts”) Few Know About Human Rights History Which Prove PRO-LIFE = PRO-DEMOCRACY

 Fact 1: “Pro-Choice Abortion” Philosophy and the Parental “Right to Choose” to Raise or Abort One’s Child is Not New but Ancient, Part of the Brutal Ancient Mindset Where Human Life was Cheap Not Precious, Before There Were Any Legally Recognized Human Rights. 

The “Pro-Choice” parental “right to choose” to either raise one’s child or to legally kill him or her by abortion is not new, only the name is new.   Before the 4th Century it was NORMAL for parents to legally choose to kill their unwanted human children by abortion (or infanticide – which some of today’s “Pro-Choice” philosophers similarly advocate for, calling it “after-birth abortion”).  It was also NORMAL for governments to legally enslave or kill their human citizens at will, for exactly the same underlying reason – THERE WERE NO LEGALLY RECOGNIZED HUMAN RIGHTS, including no legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live, the most basic Human Right without which all others are meaningless.  Governments felt no necessary obligation to either protect or serve human lives for exactly the same reason that parents felt no obligation to necessarily raise their children but could “choose” to kill them by abortion – human life was considered cheap not precious.  Parents could sell their children into slavery or abort them because there were no recognized Human RightsIf you did not know this fact and you are “Pro-Choice,” this fact alone should make you re-think your position for the sake of all humanity.

Fact 2: Human Rights Were First Legally Recognized in 318 AD with the Criminalization of Abortion (and Infanticide) Because Human Life Then Started to Be Recognized as Precious Not Cheap (and therefore Killing Humans is Wrong). 

The “Pro-Life” principle that every human life without exception is not cheap but precious, and equally precious, such that governments are obligated to protect all human lives, is also not new but ancient (only the name is new), a specifically Christian principle which the West first adopted in 318 AD, five years after Christianity was legalized (and ceased to be brutally persecuted by the brutal ancient mindset Christianity gradually replaced) in 313 AD.  This Christian, “Pro-Life” principle was first given practical expression when for the first time Human Rights became legally recognized and protected by law with the 318 AD CRIMINALIZATION OF ABORTION and infanticide specifically because human life was no longer considered cheap, to serve the greater State, but from now on precious, and the State was since then obligated to protect precious human lives from the womb (who then became known as precious persons – the very word and concept of personhood is rooted in the Christian doctrine of the One God in Three Persons who lovingly made humanity “in God’s Image.” So as long as any humans have been called “persons,” preborn humans have been called “persons” – with legally recognized Human Rights). This gradually changed the whole way humans were governed. Before this, Western governments were judged by their civic accomplishments, often on the backs of their cheap human subjects (1/3 of whom were slaves).  After this, Western governments were judged by how well or poorly they treated the precious human persons (from the womb) they ruled because it was since then generally recognized in the West that killing humans is wrongIf you did not know this fact and you are “Pro-Choice,” this fact alone should make you re-think your position for the sake of all humanity.

Fact 3: Precious Human Life Was Protected by Law or Custom Right from its Beginning in the Womb from the 4th Century to the 20th Century (During Which Time Modern Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms Gradually but Logically Developed from the Foundational Principle That Every Human Life is Equally Precious, Which is WHY Each Human Deserves an Equal Say or Vote), Until the First Two Modern Nations to De-Criminalize Abortion Were Soviet Russia (in 1920) and Nazi Germany (in 1934)Totalitarian States Threatening the Lives and Freedoms of Citizens Just Like Those Back When Legal Abortion was the Ancient Norm.

. . . these two governments perpetrated the two largest genocides of born humans in history: the Soviet Holodomor – the forced starvation to death of 7-10 million Ukrainian humans in 1932-3, just as the Nazi Holocaust of 6 million Jewish humans (plus handicapped humans) was getting started . . .  AFTER de-crimnalized abortion had already established in Soviet Russia and Nazi Germany that there was no longer any legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live as had been recognized by law or custom since 318 AD.  Thus logically these governments no longer felt any obligation to protect or serve born humans either, logically leading them to descend back into the oppressive governmental totalitarianism that was NORMAL in ancient times back when legal abortion was NORMAL.  If you did not know this fact and you are “Pro-Choice,” this fact alone should make you re-think your position for the sake of all humanity.

Fact 4: 3 important things happened in 1948 specifically intending to make sure anything like the de-humanizing Nazi atrocities that denied Human Rights to some humans never threatened Democracy and Human Rights again: 1) The Nuremberg War Crimes Trials condemned the Nazis for Legal Abortion they encouraged mothers to ask for, describing Legal Abortion as “an inhumane act,” an “act of extermination” and a “crime against humanity” because 2) (as the newly-formed UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights declared the same year) Human Rights are for ALL humans “without distinction of any kind” because “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of ALL members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.” 3) The 1948 Declaration of Geneva, in response to the Nazis de-criminalizing both human-killing abortion and human-killing euthanasia in violation of the 2500-year Hippocratic Medical Tradition that doctors do not kill patients, similarly reaffirmed the Hippocratic Oath Tradition in the doctor’s promise, “I will maintain the utmost respect for human life, from the time of conception; even under threat, I will not use my medical knowledge contrary to the laws of humanity.” In 1948 the West knew killing humans is wrong (and doctors don’t kill patients) because humans have inherent Human Rights, and at Nuremberg the West realized everyone has a human responsibility to recognize those rights in other humans or else totalitarianism and atrocities happen.

While the Nazi atrocities which degraded and devalued human life in so many ways were still fresh in everyone’s minds, everyone recognized that de-criminalized abortion and euthanasia, which the Nazis would have forcefully imposed on the Free West if the Nazis had won World War II, were a consistently logical part of the whole anti-human Nazi approach to human life and so treated them as “crimes against humanity.”  In any country where the equal precious value of every human life or equal “Human Rights for all humans” is not a given but considered a matter of “opinion” and “politics” rather than as the very foundation of Human Rights and democracy which it is – like in 1930s Germany concerning Jewish humans and like today concerning preborn humans – that country has already lost its democratic soul and (like in 1930s Germany) its democracy simply cannot last.  If you did not know this fact and you are “Pro-Choice” (that is, “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans”), this fact alone should make you re-think your position for the sake of all humanity.

Fact 5: As any thinking person would totally expect once knowing the above facts, of course the “Free West,” since following the Totalitarian Soviet and Nazi precedent of de-criminalizing the abortion of preborn humans (thereby cancelling out the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live which is the foundation of all Human Rights and Freedoms), has in fact introduced “Creeping Totalitarianism” into Western democracies, gradually but logically undermining Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms and making Western democracies gradually take on more and more characteristics of Totalitarian States.

. . . Like traditional Western believers in the supreme and equal value of every human life without exception in Nazi Germany were afraid to speak openly their traditional belief on behalf of Jewish humans who had been “legally devalued” (and killed in the millions) for fear of negative consequences like losing their jobs or being arrested, so today more and more citizens in more and more professions and jurisdictions are becoming more and more afraid to speak at work this same traditional, democracy-grounding belief on behalf of preborn humans who have been similarly “legally devalued” (and killed in the millions), for fear of job discipline, or losing funding, and peaceful Human Rights advocates protesting human-killing near abortion clinics have been similarly arrested and jailed . . . many medical professionals and parents and other citizens RIGHT NOW in Canada and throughout the West experience truncation of their democratic freedom to express the traditional values Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms are historically and logically built on (like “killing humans is wrong”), for fear of consequences – like in Totalitarian StatesHow many of you have experienced this? Raise your hands! [hands were raised during the speech!] “Creeping Totalitarianism” is a world-wide “Pro-Choice” anti-democratic trend driven by the internal logic of “Pro-Choice Abortion” philosophy itself, which to continue unimpeded necessarily must bully and hammer away at the democratic rights and freedoms of those doctors and other medical professionals who object to killing humans, and of all who believe human life is inherently valuable, to silence them to make sure humans can be killed without anyone complaining – like in every Totalitarian State, ancient or modern. . . . This gradual loss of Democracy by many small stages (as in 1930s Germany) is completely logical, because like any structure, Democracy simply cannot last without its foundation, which is the EQUAL precious value of every human life without exception, which the government is always obligated to protect. Without this democratic foundation, we are becoming DINOs – Democracies In Name Only. If you did not know this fact and you are “Pro-Choice,” this fact alone should make you re-think your position for the sake of all humanity.

Fact 6: Legal Abortion (with its profitable Abortion Industry) is every bit as fundamentally incompatible with Democracy as Legal Slavery (with its profitable Slave Trade) was, for precisely the same reason: Both (like the Nazis) deny Human Rights to some humans (making “Human Rights” meaningless if not all humans have them) and both violate the same traditional Foundational Principle of Human Rights and Democracy that every human life without exception is EQUAL and PRECIOUS, which is the underlying reason Western governments stopped being oppressive and totalitarian, and eventually gave every human a vote or democratic say in his or her own governance, in the first place.  Legal Abortion needs to be abolished for precisely the same reason Legal Slavery did.  It is fundamentally anti-human & anti-democratic.

. . . few know that legally devalued Black humans by the tens of thousands died tightly chained together in their own waste on slave ships before they even got the chance to be slaves, at plantations with poor safety standards where many died working as slaves, just as legally devalued Jewish humans were killed in the millions in Nazi Death Camps and just as legally devalued preborn humans are today killed in the millions in abortion clinics.  The original (Christian) Abolitionists called for the Abolition of Legal Slavery for the sake of equal Human Rights for all humans which is the foundation of Democracy.  “Pro-Lifers” are literally the New Abolitionists, calling for the Abolition of Legal Abortion because they are championing precisely the same Foundational Principle of Human Rights and Democracy that every human without exception – whether Black, Jewish, or preborn – has Equal Human Rights including an Inherent Human Right to Live.

[Additional Note: William Wilberforce, the great champion of equal Human Rights for All Humans and the major figure behind ending legal slavery in the British Empire, after he revealed the truth about the widespread violation of the very same “Pro-Life” principles of the supreme and equal value and dignity of every human life in his day, which was legal slavery rooted in ignorant bigotry against Black humans (instead of today’s violation of legal abortion rooted in ignorant bigotry against preborn humans), said:  “You may choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did not know.”  Similarly, if you are “Pro-Choice,” now that you have been exposed to just “The Top 6 Facts Few Know About Human Rights History Which Prove Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy,” these facts alone have now exposed the ignorance behind your bigotry against preborn humans that makes you (just like slave-owners) deny equal Human Rights to some humans.  And like the slavery-supporting bigots in Wilberforce’s day, there will still be strong temptation motivated by self-interest in many to resist the realization of how much the Pro-Choice mindset undermines and cancels all Human Rights and freedoms, so many will (as in Wilberforce’s day) still choose to “look the other way.”  But now Pro-Choicers cannot say that nobody told them and showed them they were in fact logically destroying democracy itself for everybody, all for the sake of their self-interested pleasure and/or convenience which is deadly to their fellow humans still in the womb.  Also, please note that specifically BECAUSE legal abortion violates the very same underlying principle of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS that legal slavery did, most of what William Wilberforce said about the cause of abolishing slavery (so as to recognize equal Human Rights for All Humans) applies equally well to the cause of abolishing abortion (so as to recognize equal Human Rights for All Humans).  Wilberforce said:

“Let us not despair; it is a blessed cause, and success, ere long, will crown our exertions. Already we have gained one victory; we have obtained, for these poor creatures, the recognition of their human nature, which, for a while was most shamefully denied [then by legal slavery; now by legal abortion]. This is the first fruits of our efforts; let us persevere and our triumph will be complete. Never, never will we desist till we have wiped away this scandal, released ourselves from the load of guilt, under which we at present labour, and extinguished every trace of this bloody traffic [then the profitable Slave Trade; now the profitable Abortion Industry; BOTH of which profit by denying Human Rights to some humans], of which our posterity, looking back to the history of these enlightened times, will scarce believe that it has been suffered to exist so long a disgrace and dishonour to this country.”

William Wilberforce was the major proponent of equal Human Rights for All Humans in Britain, towards ending the Slave Trade which denied Human Rights to some humans, and Abraham Lincoln was in America.  It is a telling (if unwitting) self-indictment of the profound ignorance and deep-seated anti-human bigotry of those “Pro-Choice-abortion” people in the U.S. who did not allow “Pro-Life” women’s groups to march with them in their “Women’s March on Washington” on January 21, 2017, the first day of office of the new administration of “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” President Donald Trump who similarly supports equal Human Rights for All Humans by his “Pro-Life” stance, that they vehemently denounced the legitimately-elected Trump as “not my President” even though he had not actually yet done anything at all in office to justify their rejecting the legitimate democratic election of a President.  From the same scholarly “broad perspective” on the entirety of Western Civilization’s history with which I wrote the book Democracy 101 and from which I have culled these above “Top 6 Historical Facts Few Know About Human Rights History Which Prove Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy,” I note that these “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” protesters have now forever identified themselves in history with those bigoted slave-owners or slavery-supporters in the Southern U.S. who like Pro-Choicers did NOT believe in equal Human Rights for All Humans, who from the moment Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated as President (like Trump, before he had actually done anything in office) ALSO effectively said that Lincoln was “not my President” by seceding from the United States (resulting in the American Civil War) specifically because Lincoln actually believed in equal Human Rights for All Humans and they knew he would not support continued Human Rights violations in continued legal slavery the same way that these “Women’s March on Washington” protesters knew President Trump would not support continued Human Rights violations in continued legal abortion.  Wikipedia reports that “According to organizers” the Women’s March on Washington “was meant to ‘send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights.’ ”  This very statement in fact boldly stated to any person with a solid Human Rights education how UNEDUCATED and IGNORANT these protesters are.  This very statement itself proves that these “Pro-Abortion/Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” protesters of their new “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” President are COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY IGNORANT of the above “Top 6 Historical Facts Few Know About Human Rights History Which Prove Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy,” and proves that they have not the foggiest clue about what genuine Human Rights are (nor what logical thinking is), since (as discussed more near the end of Part I of this speech) IF “women rights” somehow go beyond the equal Human Rights to safety and so on which every other human shares, and include a right to kill humans by abortion, THEN logically humans do NOT have any Inherent Human Right to Live after all.  A woman with the legal “woman’s right” to kill her own human child, herself has no legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live since her own mother could have legally killed her when she herself was in her own mother’s womb.  So, what they mean by “women’s rights” means that logically, women themselves have no Inherent Human Right to Live, and nor does anyone else (i.e. men neither).  Since by “women’s rights” they mean a woman’s “right to kill humans” by abortion, what they mean by “women’s rights” are in fact the ABSOLUTE OPPOSITE of genuine Human Rights including the Inherent Human Right to Live which is the historical and logical foundation of Democracy.  The “women’s rights” to kill humans which they advocate for logically can only exist INSTEAD of genuine Human Rights.]

Only ignorance and bigotry ever denies Human Rights to some humans, and the age-bigotry of Legal Abortion is every bit as vile as the race-bigotry of Legal Slavery or Nazi Death Camps; worse, it is the bigotry against the Human Race itself, eradicating the Inherent Human Right to Live of everybody, since every one of us used to be a fetal-age human who (in the perspective of Legal Abortion) could have been legally killed at fetal age and therefore NONE OF US have any legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live since abortion was de-criminalized (each of us was only “allowed” to live, in violation of the clear intention of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights to apply Human Rights to ALL humans “without distinction of any kind” because “recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of ALL members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.”  If preborn humans are somehow NOT members of the human family in the meaning of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights so they can be aborted, then NOBODY has an Inherent Human Right to Live after all, so the Declaration is meaningless, since ALL OF US used to be preborn humans who could have been aborted.  Article 23 of the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy makes clear how de-criminalized abortion is a betrayal of everything the Universal Declaration of Human Rights intended to protect humanity from totalitarianism).  If you did not know this cluster of facts and you are “Pro-Choice,” this fact alone should make you re-think your position for the sake of all humanity.  These “Top 6” facts alone prove far beyond reasonable doubt that “Pro-Choice Abortion” philosophy with its “right-to-kill-humans” has since ancient times been the enemy of Human Rights and Freedoms; has already eliminated everyone’s legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live; and is currently destroying genuine democracy through “Pro-Choice” “Creeping Totalitarian” policies specifically to ensure “abortion access” at the high cost of Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms.  Pro-Life = Pro-Democracy.

 

These top 6 facts, ranging from ancient times through modern times to the present day, are all extremely pertinent to today’s question of whether preborn humans have Human Rights – and extremely pertinent to the question of whether any humans have Human Rights (which itself is not a given worldwide outside the West).  Therefore, any opinion on whether or not the abortion-killing of preborn humans should be legal that does not know any one of these facts which few know is an uninformed opinion based on an uneducated ignorance of the most pertinent history and logic underlying Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms.

Basically, nobody who today is “Pro-Choice” consciously chose to be so even though they were fully consciously aware of these “top 6” facts of Human Rights history – meaning basically that all who are “Pro-Choice”  – politicians or voters – hold the position only because of ignorance.  Lasting democracy needs people’s opinions on life issues to be based in educated knowledge of the most pertinent facts of Human Life and Freedom, not based in ignorance of the facts most pertinent to the origins and future of Democracy.  Basically, no “Pro-Choicer” has an educated opinion.  And this is a great “out” for them, if they take advantage if it, so they can change their position in response to getting a solid Human Rights education like the one I just outlined, and save face.  It’s no shame to be uneducated or ignorant.  Everyone is uneducated in something until they get educated.  Everybody is ignorant of something until they have a chance to learn.  So all Pro-Choicers who get exposed to Democracy 101 have a brief opportunity to save face and say “Oh – I didn’t know the facts of Human Rights history – I will change my position now.”  Technically they SHOULD have known that killing humans is wrong already, and that abortion kills humans, not cats or dogs or anything else, but’s that’s OK, that’s cool, as long as they do the right thing now.  We can charitably grant that they were just too uneducated to know better before now.  But Democracy 101 also makes clear, there are only two reasons why anyone is ever Pro-Choice: they are either ignorant, or they are evil.  And their response to Democracy 101 [or to this speech based on it] will reveal which of the two they are.  If they were just ignorant, then they will adjust their ways in response to education [even if there is a certain amount of inconvenience for them in starting to put all humanity before their personal convenience or gain, this will be worth it to people who were just ignorant and not actually evil] – and we can even grant them a bit of time to make all the adjustments.  If they are too selfish, self-centered/evil to care about humanity’s long-term safety but for their personal convenience or advantage [or political power] still try to get out of admitting killing humans is wrong [and if like all bigots do they still try to deny equal human rights to some humans], then they show themselves like the Soviets and Nazis who were the first governments to de-criminalize abortion because they also didn’t believe that killing humans is wrong [and also denied equal humans rights to some humans.  There is excellent reason that for 1700 years in the West, as a general rule we have regarded people who refuse to accept that killing humans is wrong are evil.]

For the first time, I’m teaching a course in formal logic to young people – and I guarantee abortion would not still be legal if they taught logic in schools.  One perfect, valid, sound logical syllogism is:

All humans have human rights. 

Preborn humans are humans.

Therefore, preborn humans have human rights.

There is no valid nor reasonable way to reject the logic of this valid, sound syllogism without making yourself look silly and bigoted, if not outright evil, like all the slave-owners and Nazis etc. who also deny human rights to some humans.

If they attempt to suggest a human fetus [more accurately called a fetal-age human] is not human, or a “tissue blob” like they said at the time abortion was de-criminalized, they are inviting you to ridicule them for being so uneducated and ignorant of the rich, hard science of the human life cycle now available, and for not even knowing that preborn humans are humans [I have a Grade 3/3rd Grade Science textbook that briefly describes the human life-cycle in the following words:  “The life of a human starts as an egg.  The egg develops into a baby inside the mother until it is ready to be born.  The young grows into an adult, and if the adult reproduces, the cycle repeats itself.”  Do Pro-Choicers really want to admit they didn’t master Grade 3 science?].  If they suggest a preborn human is not a human being or a human person – they just advertise their ignorance of the meaning and history of these terms too.

“Being” literally mean “existence” and the human existence of preborn humans has never been in doubt.  They are not feline beings like cats nor canine beings like dogs nor bovine beings like cows.  They are specifically human beings.  And historically, as long as any humans have been called “persons,” preborn humans have been called “persons” – with legally recognized Human Rights since the 4th Century.  And every single time in history that someone’s biological humanity has been admitted without admitting their human personhood , gross inhuman injustice was the result.  Any pro-choice age bigot who is ignorant and bigoted enough to deny human rights to young, preborn humans by claiming preborn humans are not persons have just put themselves in the same category as every slave-owning or Nazi race bigot who ALSO denied human rights to Black or Jewish or handicapped humans by claiming they were not human persons even though they could not deny their scientific, biological humanity.  Native north Americans and women have also been legally denied fully equal human rights by being legally denied their human personhood even though no one could deny their scientific humanity.  THROUGHOUT HISTORY ONLY IGNORANT BIGOTS HAVE EVER ACKNOWLEDGED SOMEONE’S BIOLOGICAL HUMANITY BUT DENIED THEIR HUMAN PERSONHOOD AND THEIR EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS.  So whenever a Pro-Choicer denies the human personhood of preborn humans, it is not an argument, it is a declaration of their ignorance and bigotry.

My book Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy uses undisputed historical and scientific facts and clear, sound logic to identify and explicitly articulate the implicit underlying foundations of Human Rights which precludes all bigotry against some group of humans; and of all Democratic Freedoms.  These are elaborated more fully in the book, but even just listing them here no one can reasonably deny these following principles can guarantee lasting Democracy in a way nothing else can [and no one can intelligently deny that Pro-Choice Abortion philosophy and all legal abortion policies, especially current “abortion on demand,” violate ALL of these principles that guarantee lasting democracy and which make governmental totalitarianism unthinkable]: 

Foundational Principle of Human Rights and Democracy #1: That every human life without exception, without discrimination and (quote) “without distinction of any kind” is SUPREMELY and EQUALLY valuable and precious, OBLIGATING governments to protect and serve ALL precious humans who have (quote) “inherent . . . equal and inalienable [human] rights” (instead of being oppressive and/or totalitarian towards the governed – note the quoted phrases are from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights).

Foundational Principle of Human Rights and Democracy #2: That because every human life without exception is precious every human life without exception must be FREE from all government coercion in matters of belief so that they may without impediment FREELY seek and find this wonderful Truth foundational to Democracy, that their human lives are supremely and equally valuable and precious (without government interference; without government telling or teaching the humans governed any differently; and without government treating humans any differently, in violation of their Human Rights).  These two principles together are the implicit underlying First Principles or logical starting point of both Human Rights and Democracy as we know it.

CORE PRINCIPLE OF LASTING DEMOCRACY #1: Lasting Democracy requires full and uncompromising legal recognition of The Inherent Human Right to Live and the traditional Western belief expressed in the simple maxim killing humans is wrong, because Human Rights are for All Humans or else they are meaningless (if being human is not enough to have them).

CORE PRINCIPLE OF LASTING DEMOCRACY #2: Lasting Democracy does not grant unqualified freedom to individual  humans, but Lasting Democracy restricts individual freedom with just criminal laws which uphold the Inherent Human Right to Live and the maxim killing humans is wrong; laws which protect the Human Rights and property of other humans and encourage mature respect for all humanity which ensures that humans are always treated as precious persons not as mere tools or objects to be used or thrown away.  For lasting world peace nation-States also need to be guided by just International Laws which similarly uphold the Inherent Human Right to Live, Human Rights for All Humans and the maxim killing humans is wrong.

CORE PRINCIPLE OF LASTING DEMOCRACY #3: Lasting Democracy does not grant an unqualifiedanything the majority asks for or accepts,” but Lasting Democracy MUST hold its citizens and its politicians constitutionally accountable to the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy including the Inherent Human Right to Live and the maxim killing humans is wrong because Human Rights are for All Humans, or else genuine Democracy can easily be lost to “Creeping Totalitarianism” wherein democracies (in name only, as in 1930s Germany) gradually but increasingly take on the characteristics of totalitarian States (all of which deny killing humans is wrong and all of which think the government decides which humans may or may not be legally killed instead of recognizing lasting democratic government’s foundation that governments are obligated to always protect and serve always-precious human lives because Human Rights are for All Humans).

Having established what Democracy is founded on and what can make it last, it is easy to identify:

THE TOP 6 MAJOR ASSAULTS ON DEMOCRACY IN “PRO-CHOICE-TO-KILL-HUMANS” CANADA [Similar Policies Trending Worldwide] SINCE 2015 (which each violate at least one of the above foundational principles of lasting democracy)

[Note that the specifics vary from country to country – but the U.S., Europe and anywhere legal abortion has eradicated any legal recognition of the Inherent Human Right to Live, some degree or some form of these current Canadian trends of “Creeping Totalitarian” assaults on Democracy are happening all over the globe]

  1. Despite immigrant Canadian citizens who lived under Soviet Communist and other totalitarian governments giving the CPSO feedback that they were pursuing totalitarian-style policies, doctors’ democratic freedom of conscience rights have been taken away in Ontario [Canada’s largest Province] (by CPSO, now Bill 84) specifically to ensure “abortion access” that kills humans.
  2. Euthanasia – no longer recognizing the Inherent Human Right to Live since abortion was de-criminalized, the Canadian government just slipped back into the old style of government that was normal BEFORE there were any recognized Human Rights, where the government decides just which humans are protected and just which humans can be legally killed INSTEAD of being OBLIGATED to always protect equally precious human life. Euthanasia also insidiously reintroduces the legal killing of born humans as well as preborn humans, like in any totalitarian State [and remember, Nazi Germany first de-criminalized euthanasia in violation of the 2500 year Hippocratic Medical Tradition that doctors don’t kill patients.]
  3. Free Speech violations. We have federal and provincial bills limiting free speech.  We even have a grossly misnamed “Human Rights Commission” which literally does not know the first thing about human rights – that killing humans is wrong (if it did, it would charge the government for legal abortion that eradicates the Inherent Human Right to Live, the primary Human Right).  And the head of this body has indicated it is quite happy to suppress free speech by prosecuting people who will not use newly-invented pronoun words, with no history in any language, that serve a new agenda with no history in the culture.  This is the opposite of democratic government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”  Having to be afraid of what you say (or don’t say), especially if it is traditional and reflects your country’s grounding values, is a feature of totalitarian States.
  4. We have the muzzling of duly elected federal representatives who are not allowed to voice their own traditional conscience, nor to represent their traditional constituents who elected them, if they believe in the traditional Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy that every human without exception – including preborn humans – is EQUAL and PRECIOUS. Political parties are not even mentioned in the founding legislation like the BNA Act that makes Canada a country.  Parties are just a convenient way to organize and manage a government of hundreds of elected representatives representing the PEOPLE’s SELF-RULE.  Parties are not meant to bypass the democratic process by forcing “whipped” elected representatives to tow the party line as if the party RULES (like in a totalitarian State) and the elected representatives only represent the party’s will to the ruled people; in a democracy, the elected representatives are supposed to represent the PEOPLE participating in their own governance by choosing representatives they trust will represent their own participation (and values) in their own governance.  Most especially parties are not meant to circumvent Democracy from its foundations by forcing representatives to tow a “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” or “Pro-Choice” party line, which directly contradicts Foundational Principle of Human Rights and Democracy #1, which is “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Life;” and doing so violates Core Principle of Lasting Democracy #3, that LASTING democracies must keep their politicians and citizens accountable to Democracy’s foundations (and note that the Foundational Principles of Democracy are Non-partisan – all parties of “Left” and “Right” at least implicitly assumed HUMAN EQUALITY when Canada (and all modern democracies) were formed, so “Left” or “Right,” all parties should return to their party’s Pro-Life ROOTS if they have strayed).
  5. In Ontario, we have totalitarian-style belief control in the form the forced indoctrination of schoolchildren against parents’ loud and wide objections (and without any democratic mandate – the Ontario government did not say “elect us and we will teach your children our preferred values with no history in the culture” [They just did it as if we are already a totalitarian State]). Not only is this the opposite of democratic government “of the people, by the people, for the people” and instead the government telling the people what to believe like in any totalitarian State, but the particular radically anti-traditional values taught specifically create a DEMAND for the legal abortion which eradicates the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live and undermines democracy.
  6. Ontario Bill 89. If passed and once fully implemented, it has great potential to eventually, like in totalitarian States, make parents live in fear of being reported by anyone to authorities (Children’s Aid Societies) who will be given sweeping powers to take their children away even for TRADITIONAL CHILDREARING in TRADITIONAL VALUES which the radically anti-traditional government no longer considers “in the best interests of the child.”  And Bill 89 even allows the government to replace local Children’s Aid leaders who still want to just protect children from being abused, and do not take well to their new Bill 89 role as a government agency for enforcing parental compliance at home with the government’s radically anti-traditional values now already forcefully taught in school against parental objections).

But there is GOOD NEWS!:  How do the now-clearly articulated Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, demonstrated from undisputed historical and scientific facts connected by clear, sound logic, help us to deal with all these violations of genuine democracy?  Politicians will do whatever they think will get them elected.  We have to make them think what will get them elected is for the political parties to field Pro-Human-Right-to-Live or Pro-Life candidates, because EDUCATED voters who know the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, and the Core Principles of Lasting Democracy will only vote for “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live”/Pro-Life candidates, because they are EDUCATED enough to know that only politicians who uphold the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy are MINIMALLY QUALIFIED to lead a LASTING Democracy!  All Pro-Lifers have to do is learn and spread the undisputed facts collected in Democracy 101 and the numbers of EDUCATED voters will keep increasing until we reach the necessary “critical mass” of educated voters needed to ensure the Pro-Life Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy are permanently constitutionally enshrined – here in Canada and in other countries.

To help assist this process, I have REDEFINED THE TERMS of the abortion debate with the following:

New Terms to Clarify the Essence of the Central Dispute of Our Time:  Where do you stand on the current Human Rights for All Humans debate?  Do you believe in equal Human Rights for All Humans, or do you believe Human Rights can and should be denied to some humans?  That is, are you “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” ?

In order to clarify all future dialogue on human life issues in a way which keeps all the facts of the history of Human Rights and abortion in mind, I have clarified the essence of the “Pro-Life” versus “Pro-Choice” abortion debate by re-naming it the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” versus “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” abortion debate; or alternatively the Human Rights for All Humans debate, wherein “Pro-Lifers” believe in equal Human Rights for All Humans, but “Pro-Choicers” believe that Human Rights are NOT for all humans, but Human Rights can be denied to some humans (as “Pro-Choicers” deny equal Human Rights to young, preborn humans; as slave-owning bigots denied equal Human Rights to Black humans; as Nazi bigots denied equal Human Rights to Jewish and handicapped humans).  There is no intellectually honest way for anyone to deny that these new terms clearly and accurately identify the CORE ESSENCE of the “Pro-Life”/”Pro-Choice” dispute self-described “Pro-Life” citizens are essentially motivated by the core belief that every human has an Inherent Human Right to Live (which is the core of the now-clearly-identified Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy); and since Human Rights are for All Humans (or else they are meaningless, if being human is not enough to have them), therefore the abortion-killing of humans should be banned (as it was by law or custom since 318 AD).  And no-one can honestly deny that the key defining factor that distinguishes self-described “Pro-Choice” citizens from “Pro-Life” or “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or Human Rights for All Humans citizens is that “Pro-Choice” citizens are instead indeed essentially “for” (Latin pro) the choice to kill young humans still in the womb by legal abortion (therefore logically denying the Inherent Human Right to Live which essentially defines the “Pro-Life” side, because “Pro-Choicers” do NOT believe in Human Rights for All Humans).  “Pro-Choice” citizens by definition are essentially “for” the “choice” to kill preborn humans whose full biological, scientific humanity as unique living individual biological human organisms with absolutely unique human DNA utterly distinct from their parents at every age and stage of their human life-cycles from zygotes (fertilized eggs) to senior adults is not in dispute but is established scientific fact.  By approving abortion and calling it “Choice,” “Pro-Choice” citizens are essentially “for” the “choice” to kill humans just like every one of us when the we were their age and still in the womb, logically meaning that if they and we could have been legally aborted, NONE OF US HAVE A LEGALLY RECOGNIZED INHERENT HUMAN RIGHT TO LIVE.  I believe that these new terms “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” versus “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” which definitively clarify the true core essence of the “Pro-Life” versus “Pro-Choice” abortion debate as the Human Rights for All Humans debate, should help resolve the conflict over abortion quickly because it takes away the “Pro-Choice” side’s ability to (with intellectual dishonesty) pretend that the “bottom line” of “Pro-Choice” philosophy is anything else.  Anything else such as “reproductive rights” which only sound good until one realizes these logically can only exist instead of the Human Rights which they replace.  IF “women rights” somehow go beyond the equal Human Rights to safety and so on which everyone else shares, and include a right to kill humans by abortion, THEN logically humans do NOT have any Inherent Human Right to Live after all.  A woman with the legal “reproductive right” to kill her own human child, herself has no legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live since her own mother could have legally killed her when she herself was in her own mother’s womb.  But the Inherent Human Right to Live, as shown in Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy, is the core of the historical and logical Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy.  Terms like “reproductive rights” and “women’s rights” are merely insubstantial “smoke and mirrors,” NOT legitimate terms to define the abortion debate, since they are calculated to distract attention from the much higher priority issue of genuine Human Rights which are obviously violated by legal abortion.

Since abortion is still legal only because the majority of Western citizens are not actually ardently either “Pro-Life” or “Pro-Choice,” but “in the middle” (usually leaning in one direction or the other but without serious political commitment to either changing or keeping the legal abortion status quo), I hope that these clarifying new terms of “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” versus “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans,” which no-one can reasonably deny capture the core essence of the abortion dispute, will assist the “majority somewhere in the middle” to actually realize just what they are and are not supporting by their relative uninvolvement and inaction one way or the other in the abortion dispute, and I hope these new terms will motivate them to become educated enough to take the side of equal Human Rights for All Humans which is the only side that supports the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy so that they can last forever.  Because without recognizing this, we are literally losing our democracies to “Creeping Totalitarianism” such as the above “6 assaults on democracy since 2015.

Good News!  We don’t have to be afraid and bewildered about what to do anymore!  Can’t you feel how your Pro-Life arsenal has been getting bigger as this afternoon progresses?  I  have also identified from history a proven and winning strategy, and I want to share with you {but my hour is up and I have to get off the stage now}

[The Historic Speech of March 19, 2017 continues in Part II below, delivered April 7, 2017]

 

PART II of The Historic Speech

HUMAN RIGHTS FOR ALL HUMANS

BECAUSE

PRO-LIFE=PRO-DEMOCRACY

Which Forever Redefines the Abortion Debate Worldwide

Part II

 Introduction to

“The Winning Strategy for ‘The Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with ‘The Culture of Death,’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’”

by William Baptiste SFO, Founder and Director of Human Rights and Freedoms Forever!

Delivered Friday, April 7, 2017, blocks away from Parliament Hill

At the beginning of this historic speech on Parliament Hill March 19, 2017 I said:

As a sometime-university professor, now a “professor of human rights,” I could easily lecture for 3 hours.  But I’m not going to do that. Instead, [in 1 hour] I’m going to inspire you, first with knowledge, and then with WINNING STRATEGY.  Before your eyes this afternoon I am going to redefine the terms of the abortion debate from now on, and give you CONFIDENCE that we can WIN the victory of Equal Human Rights for All Humans, born and preborn, far more QUICKLY than you ever imagined.  And we can end all the incessant attacks on religious freedom and democracy itself at the same time, because in my new book Democracy 101 and the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy: The Antidote to Worldwide “Creeping Totalitarianism” Now Threatening Human Rights, Religious Freedom, and Lasting Democracy, I prove in detail that Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy and this afternoon I can prove it with just the “Top 6” Facts!

Now, during the speech at Parliament Hill I did most of what I said I would do in the hour I had to speak during the afternoon Pro-Life on Parliament Hill Rally.  But due to time constraints I did not get to introduce, as I intended, “The Winning Strategy for ‘The Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with ‘The Culture of Death,’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’” – and I did not have time to explain WHY I am convinced that we CAN successfully implement this strategy and end BOTH legal abortion AND the incessant attacks on religious freedom which my work shows is directly related to it far more QUICKLY than you ever imagined.  I will at last do this this evening.

For those who did not attend Part I of this speech on Parliament Hill, I will first very briefly review some of the major features of the “Hill  Speech” for context:

[using the original written speech from March 19 (as above), the speaker listed the THE TOP 6 FACTS FEW KNOW ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS HISTORY WHICH PROVE PRO-LIFE = PRO-DEMOCRACY]

[and then listed the FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND DEMOCRACY]

[and then listed THE CORE PRINCIPLES OF LASTING DEMOCRACY]

[and then listed THE TOP 6 MAJOR ASSAULTS ON DEMOCRACY IN “PRO-CHOICE-TO-KILL-HUMANS” CANADA -Similar Trends in Other Countries – SINCE 2015]

[The speaker also re-introduced the earlier Parliament Hill speech’s “New Terms to Clarify the Essence of the Central Dispute of Our Time: Where do you stand on the current Human Rights for All Humans debate? Do you believe in equal Human Rights for All Humans, or do you believe Human Rights can and should be denied to some humans? That is, are you “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” or “ProChoice-to-Kill-Humans” ? “]

[Having recapped Part I of the speech] Now –  before going on to introducing the “winning strategy,” I wanted to put the facts and logic that underlie the Pro-Life position, now clearly shown, SIDE BY SIDE with the facts and logic used by the Pro-Choice side, which they actually are silly enough to call their “strongest arguments” for legal abortion – in a section I call:

Next to the Genuine Facts of History and Science Implicitly Underlying Human Rights and Democracy (and Made Explicit in Democracy 101), The Best “Pro-Choice Abortion” Justifications and Arguments are Obviously Weak and False, Just as Next to Real Money the Counterfeit Looks Fake

Just like it is much more valuable to for bank officials to study genuine money than to study counterfeit money, because, if they are intimately familiar with the real thing, that itself makes it easy to recognize any counterfeit (whatever precise form it takes), so my principal educational works like the treatise and the Pledge concentrate on the real facts and logic implicitly undergirding all Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms, without discussing in depth all the many various arguments put forth today to justify all the currently fashionable non-traditional values which are undermining genuine Human Rights and Democracy, simply because next to the real, traditional foundations of Human Rights and Freedoms these recent, anti-traditional ideas and arguments look as weak (if not colossally stupid) as they are, and there is little need to waste more time refuting them.

For example:  having first recalled the Science of Biology in fact confirms beyond dispute that any human life is the same unique living individual biological human organism with absolutely unique human DNA utterly distinct from his or her parents at every age and stage of his or her human life-cycle from zygote (fertilized egg) to senior adult (yes, that fetus in your mother’s womb with your unique DNA that you grew from to be the size you are now was YOU!); and having first established from undisputed facts connected using compelling logic that all Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms are historically and logically rooted in traditional Western values including the essentially “Pro-Life” historic Foundational Principles Human Rights and Democracy, which are given an eminently logical, mature and precise articulation in the first 5 Articles of the Pledge; and having also first demonstrated that “Pro-Choice abortion” philosophy throughout history has always gone logically hand-in-hand with oppressive totalitarianism, simply because there is no logical reason for any State to grant either Human Rights or Democratic Freedoms to humans in any State which does not even recognize any Inherent Human Right to Live, because abortion is legal (and having pointed out the undisputed fact the first two modern States to de-criminalize abortion were totalitarian Soviet Russia and totalitarian Nazi Germany) — with that much solid and sensible education in view, it is simply not necessary to waste much time refuting the silly argument that the current abortion-on-demand of preborn humans in many jurisdictions should be legal (despite the fact it undermines democracy from its foundations) just because a tiny fraction of the human-killing abortions currently performed end pregnancies where the human baby was conceived in rape and was not the result of adult sexual consent.

In this factual light the “Pro-Choice abortion” argument is that we should follow the precedent of oppressive totalitarian regimes and actually undermine the whole fabric of our entire free and democratic way of life by legally eradicating the Inherent Human Right to Live of all of us by de-criminalizing abortion, and kill millions of humans worldwide every year, just because a tiny percentage of those humans were not conceived consensually and thus not wanted by their mothers.

 As the counterfeit money is obvious next to the real thing, so it is obvious next to the facts undergirding all Human Rights and Democracy that there have to be much better ways to deal with the evil of rape than by adopting totalitarian anti-human policies which ultimately lead only to oppressive totalitarianism (as the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” specifically to ensure “abortion access” proves); there have to be better ways to deal with rape than legally eliminating the Inherent Human Right to Live (for BOTH the child AND the mother, since with legal abortion the mother too has no inherent Human Rights and could have been legally aborted by her mother too, as could ALL OF US who no longer have a recognized Inherent Human Right to Live because of this ridiculous “solution” to the social problem of criminal rape).  It should be also noted that the Pro-Choice position is not even remotely logically consistent, since Pro-Choicers argue that abortion should be legal if a child is produced by a non-consensual rape, and at the same time the Pro-Choice argument is that we should also undermine Human Rights for everyone by legally killing millions more human babies who were in fact conceived as the result of adult sexual consent, in a (scientifically, biologically speaking) successful sexual encounter of consenting adults which successfully resulted in sex’s whole biological purpose, of human procreation – just because some are immature and irresponsible enough to engage in nature’s process of producing the next generation of precious humans without any intention of nor even openness to the possibility of successfully doing so (which is an irresponsible and inhuman use of nature’s way of producing humans, that violates our human biology itself – so no wonder it leads also to compromised Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms for all humans through de-criminalized abortion eradicating the legally recognized Inherent Human Right to Live when immature and irresponsible people demand the “right to kill” by abortion their irresponsibly produced preborn precious human children).

Here is another example of sloppy “Pro-Choice abortion” thinking (one cannot call it “logic”) that is revealed as being as counterfeit and absurd as it is just by knowing all the actual facts underlying Human Rights: the notion that it was worth eliminating the Inherent Human Right to Live for everyone and unleashing the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” undermining Democracy into the West “because some pregnant women get hurt or die from illegal abortions.”  This “reasoning” (if one can call it that) was actually used in the de-criminalization of abortion in many countries, even though it is exactly like saying “because some people get desperate enough to commit crimes for sometimes sympathetic reasons, we should de-criminalize the crimes so anyone – desperate or not – can legally do them for any reason.”  Would we de-criminalize stealing because some cat-burglars, some of whom are desperate enough to steal for sympathetic reasons like feeding their poor family, get hurt or killed in the dangerous process of committing their crime (by crawling into upper-storey windows where they could fall)?  The whole fabric of the Law which guards the Human Rights (and property rights) of everyone is offended by this “reasoning.”  Clearly, if a woman for whatever reason, however sympathetic it might be, feels desperate enough to kill her own child that she is willing to risk her own life while committing the crime in a dangerous illegal abortion (as in the “cat burglar” analogy where a man feels desperate enough to steal to feed his family that he is willing to risk his own life while committing the crime in a dangerous upper-story cat-burglary), the solution in either case cannot be to legalize the crime, which can only make more innocent human victims, because it only motivates many more people, who are NOT criminally desperate, to commit the same crime as the few who are criminally desperate.  The solution has to be to uphold the law which protects the rights of everyone (the right to life or the right to property) but seek social reforms and social support programs that lessen people’s temptations to become desperate enough to commit a crime, whether a crime against humanity or a crime against property.

The third big “hard case” used illogically to somehow justify legal abortion-on-demand in addition to the “hard case” is that abortion should be legally allowed in cases “where medically necessary to save the mother.”  But if one thinks this “hard case” logically through, this “hard case” is dead easy to resolve without in any way compromising Democracy’s foundation of the Inherent Human Right to Live and driving “Creeping Totalitarianism” with legal “abortion-on-demand.”

The Pro-Life principles which Democracy 101 prove are so foundational to lasting Democracy itself are simply enough applied even to difficult medical decisions in a way which maintains the value and dignity of all human life.  In the exceedingly rare case where a complication in the pregnancy puts the mother’s health in serious danger, it will be a human tragedy if either the mother or the baby or both die. If doctors are in the very rare situation of having to make a decision to save one of the two human lives or the other but cannot save both, in that case whichever one dies will be a tragedy, because every human life is precious.  Even in these cases, some “Pro-Life” surgeons argue there is no such thing as a “medically necessary abortion,” because a medical procedure that saves the mother’s life which the baby will not survive (as a side-effect) still does not need to target the baby for death (as the intended effect) as an abortion does. So there is simply no need to legally allow abortion when necessary to save the mother – all the law has to do is simply acknowledge the (worldwide daily) reality in emergency rooms that medical personnel, who (like the government in a healthy democracy!) are obligated to do all they can to save precious threatened human lives, sometimes are unable to do so.

As long as neither mother nor baby are “devalued,” as long as one is not bigotedly viewed as “lesser” than the other and both are recognized as precious humans, which obligates the doctors to do their best to save both IF POSSIBLE, a failure to save both precious human lives is not a violation of Human Rights and there is no need to violate Human Rights by specifically legalizing the abortion-killing of humans in medical emergencies.  It is simply a human tragedy when the doctors, despite their best efforts, are unable to save both; and it is tragic if in the course of saving the mother who had the best chance of survival, the doctors had to make the uncomfortable decision to do a medical procedure which (as a side effect not as the main intended effect) they knew the baby would not survive.  This is a tragedy, not a “choice,” and certainly not a “right,” if there are any Human Rights at all.

Nothing could be more asinine and ridiculous than arguing that because doctors sometimes have to make the hard choice to save the precious mother not the precious baby when there is an unusually bad complication in a pregnancy, and an abortion or abortion-like procedure the precious baby will not survive occasionally has to be done only in order to save the precious mother, that somehow this precedent of a supposed “need” for abortion-killing to save another valuable human life in a rare “hard case” in any way justifies abortion-killing of precious humans in any case (the current “abortion-on-demand” in many countries).

Any logical thinker would recognize this as a “non sequitur” — “it does not follow” that even if abortion-killing of one precious human life is occasionally, in a rare and extreme set of circumstances, necessary to save another precious human life, that therefore somehow there is no Inherent Human Right to Live (as any legal abortion implies) and abortion should be legal for any reason.  Yet this illogical application has become common.

But the only sensible thing, once one is educated enough to know lasting Human Rights and Freedoms depend on the “Pro-Life” Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, is to not make abortion legal in any circumstances, but merely acknowledge that sometimes a precious mother’s life can only be saved by a medical procedure that her precious baby will not survive (a procedure that surgeons confirm does not have to target the baby for death the way an abortion does at all — so there are no “medically necessary abortions”).

All of these three examples – (which have in fact been used to justify following the totalitarian Soviet and Nazi precedent of de-criminalizing abortion) – represent the strongest arguments usually presented for legal abortion.  None of them have anything to do with facts or logic, but all are merely emotional appeals to genuinely sympathetic “hard cases” – and none of them can be logically applied to a general policy of legal abortion outside of the “hard cases” – nor even within the “hard case.”  Of course we should have sympathy for the tiny percentage of women who suffer the violent crime of rape who become pregnant by this non-consensual sexual act.  But does this mean we should eliminate the Inherent Human Right to Live and thus undermine democracy with “Creeping Totalitarianism” just because we legitimately feel sorry for a woman who is pregnant through no fault of her own and does not want to be?  Nothing could be more illogical, and if this is the best solution the “Pro-Choice abortion” mindset can come up with to complicated human social problems including rape – to kill more humans – following totalitarian precedent, and undermining democracy itself – they must have seriously deficient creative problem-solving intellects.

 

How YOU Can Learn and Participate in the Winning Strategy for the ‘Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with the ‘Culture of Death,’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism’

GENERAL STRATEGY IN BRIEF: The British Abolitionists successfully and peacefully ended legal slavery (which was fundamentally incompatible with Democracy and the conflict had to be resolved for the stability of society) by EDUCATING FIRST THEMSELVES, THEN THE ELECTORATE OF VOTING CITIZENS FROM THE GRASSROOTS UP in the TRADITIONAL AND DEMOCRACY-GROUNDING PRINCIPLE of EQUAL HUMAN PRECIOUSNESS until there were sufficient numbers of EDUCATED voting citizens who believed that EVERY HUMAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAD EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS to convince the politicians to end the entrenched and powerful, profitable SLAVE TRADE which DENIED HUMAN RIGHTS TO SOME HUMANS.  In the same way, today’s TRADITIONAL believers in the SAME Democracy-Grounding Principle can become “New Abolitionists” and “Democracy Pledgers” WHO CAN END the current worldwide trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism” which is driven by now-popular “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” abortion policies that are just as fundamentally incompatible with Democracy and thus de-stabilizing to society as legal slavery was, because they violate the SAME TRADITIONAL underlying principle that EVERY HUMAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAS EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS  that legal slavery did by DENYING HUMAN RIGHTS TO SOME HUMANS like legal slavery did and – worse than slavery – legally eradicating the Inherent Human Right to Live which is the foundation of all Democracy.  To end the killing of humans and end “Creeping Totalitarianism at the same time, following the example of the original Abolitionists, “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” New Abolitionists (like YOU) just need to make sure that enough voting citizens in every country (starting with themselves) become EDUCATED enough in where Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms historically and logically come from that sufficient numbers of EDUCATED voters will no longer vote for UNEDUCATED politicians who are undermining the very fabric of Democracy in their IGNORANCE of the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (which are the SAME TRADITIONAL underlying principles held by the Abolitionists who ended slavery).  Knowing and holding the now-clearly-identified historic and logical Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy (which are backed up by the science of human life)  should be a minimum qualification for politicians in any democracy which wants to remain a democracy long-term and not fall to current trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism,” and making sure there are enough EDUCATED VOTERS to convince the politicians to constitutionally enshrine the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy is the core of the “Winning Strategy” which was successfully used by the Abolitionists to end legal slavery (who held these same principles like EVERY HUMAN WITHOUT EXCEPTION HAS EQUAL HUMAN RIGHTS).

So, if I am encouraging you all to become “Democracy Pledgers”, just what is one?

Definition:  A “Democracy Pledger” is someone who takes responsibility for Human Rights and Democratic Freedoms for everyone rather than taking them for granted; someone who bothers to learn where they come from so they can protect these rights and freedoms for future generations, rather than not even knowing where they come from and so not being vigilant to maintain their foundations, and thus being prone to ignorantly compromise Human Rights and undermine Democracy without even realizing it, which uneducated ignorance on a wide scale in both politicians and voters has brought on the current worldwide threat of “Creeping Totalitarianism” necessitating the educational Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy to combat this uneducated ignorance.  A “Democracy Pledger” reads the Pledge (Democracy 101) to learn Democracy’s historical and logical foundations and then spreads it to others who spread it to others, until there are enough EDUCATED citizens in their country (who no longer take Human Rights and Freedoms for granted) to ensure they last long-term.

A “Democracy Pledger” “takes the Pledge” by reading it and spreading it to others as part of a new worldwide grassroots movement to make sure Human Rights and Freedoms last forever on their firm traditional, historical, scientific and logical foundations – until enough citizens in their country understand and stand up together in Solidarity for the constitutional enshrinement of the essential content of The Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and The Core Principles of Lasting Democracy identified from history, science and logic in PLEDGE PART II and clearly articulated in PLEDGE PART I of Democracy 101 & the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy.

I have chosen the word “Solidarity” here very deliberately.  Do you THINK the current movements and forces of “Creeping Totalitarianism” undermining traditional Western values in so very many ways with massive social and legal changes, undemocratically imposed, look scary and can’t be beaten?  Well, guess what!  No anti-democratic forces EVER looked stronger than the Soviet Union, but it fell like a house of cards, more quickly than anyone ever imagined, when people with TRADITIONAL Western values JUST LIKE YOU stood up together in Solidarity against it.  The Polish Solidarity movement, inspired by the Polish Christian, Pope John Paul II, undermined even full-blown hardline Communist Soviet totalitarianism in the Eastern Bloc Warsaw Pact countries, AND IT FELL WITHOUT BLOODSHED AGAINST ALL EXPECTATIONS.  We are only dealing with “Creeping Totalitarianism” rooted in the ignorance of politicians who are just too uneducated to know any better how to make democracy last; we are NOT facing full-blown and deliberate totalitarianism like the Polish Solidarity movement was.  If we stand up together in Solidarity for the TRADITIONAL Western values now clearly articulated as the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy, all the current “Creeping Totalitarianism” will also FALL LIKE THE INSUBSTANTIAL HOUSE OF CARDS IT IS.

Don’t believe me?  Well, as my final encouraging point, please consider my assertion that Gandhi’s Sequence of Progressive Government Response to Non-Violent Protest Against Injustice Indicates the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” (or “Pro-Life”) Side Will Soon Win the Victory of Human Rights For All Humans Against Current Democracy-Destroying “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” (or “Pro-Choice”) Laws and Policies

The classic description attributed to Gandhi of the stages of government response to non-violently seeking political change where there has been injustice, when genuine rights have been trampled by the government is: “First they ignore you.  Then they ridicule you. Then they persecute you.  Then you win.”

When a government that fancies itself democratic or benevolent to humans (and not totalitarian) realizes that they can no longer ignore nor ridicule nor persecute the protest movement against a legitimate complaint against injustice or a Human Rights violation without betraying their own best principles and becoming obvious Human Rights violators themselves by violently quelling those standing up for justice or genuine Human Rights, then they concede to the protesters and correct the injustice, and uphold Human Rights.

In this manner Gandhi’s non-violent non-acceptance of injustice convinced the British Empire to change certain prejudiced policies (in both South Africa and India) which did not treat all human citizens of the Empire equally (and eventually to peacefully leave India – on friendly terms – to rule itself).   Even though some British policies did not live up to Britain’s own highest, traditional Western (Christian) ideals of equal human preciousness, still Britain had these ideals.  And thus Gandhi’s non-violent non-compliance with injustice, when they could no longer ignore it, forced the British in South Africa and India to realize that to continue the status quo of their existing  prejudiced policies, they would have to become their own definition of totalitarian monsters through repeated, consistent persecution through arrests or violence of those who would no longer put up with the injustice of the government not treating all humans under their power equally.  So the British government, after some incidents of violent persecution they themselves found highly distasteful, but which were necessary if they really wanted to enforce their current unjust laws which did not treat humans as equally valuable, had to concede that their laws and policies were unjust – and changed them.

They would have to be monsters to continue to enforce compliance upon those refusing to accept the injustice and non-violently protesting it.  They would have to be monsters to silence the voice of legitimate protest against an inhuman injustice.  So they finally decided they were not monsters, upheld their own highest democratic ideals and conceded to justice which treats humans equally, changing laws and policies which did not treat all humans equally.  All “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” “Pro-Lifers” (New Abolitionists) are doing is in the same way standing up for the just equal treatment of all humans, for the equal Human Rights for All Humans that is the historical and logical ground of Democracy, by protesting the injustice of legal abortion which similarly does not treat all humans equally because of one kind of bigoted prejudice or another which cannot in any way be justified by the science of human life (age-bigotry “this human that is smaller than me has no rights” instead of race-bigotry “this human that is darker-skinned than me has less rights”).  Since all instances of not granting all humans equal Human Rights are unjust, my below analysis of Gandhi’s Sequence of Progressive Government Response to Non-Violent Protest Against Injustice indicates that “Pro-Lifers” can soon expect a major victory for their cause of having preborn humans treated equally with the same rights other humans have.

Now, how “soon” is “soon” will vary a great deal from country to country, but according to Gandhi’s progression we will soon have a “Pro-Life” Human Rights for All Humans victory, because the “Pro-Choice abortion” side has kept the upper hand in worldwide governments so long only by staying in Gandhi’s “ignoring” stage, which they cannot do for much longer; and they cannot seriously ridicule the “Pro-Life” side without looking like idiots themselves since the great weight of history, science and logic support the “Pro-Life” position as essential to lasting Human Rights and Democracy (this was always the case, which is why there has not so far been serious ridicule of the Pro-Life side, which would invite average people to really examine the relative merits of each side’s case and see the side against current abortion law is much stronger; but now Democracy 101 & The Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy has made it extremely easy for anyone to see that in fact Pro-Life = Pro-Democracy.  So From now on, any government which tries to ignore or deny that Human Rights are for All Humans, and that this is the Foundation of Lasting Democracy, will be easily seen as uneducated/ignorant at best; or illogical/unintelligent; or selfish/evil and totalitarian at worst.  So now these “Pro-Choice-to-Kill-Humans” governments cannot ridicule the “Pro-Human-Right-to-Live” side without looking uneducated or evil; they also cannot seriously violently persecute the “Pro-Life” side to silence it without looking totalitarian and anti-democratic for violently suppressing peaceful “Pro-Life” Human Rights advocates who are only reminding people that killing humans is wrong and championing Human Rights for All Humans in a democracy that is supposed to recognize Human Rights; this means the only stage they can reasonably progress to, as continuing to ignore the “Pro-Life” voice becomes no longer viable, is to conceding we win and abolishing abortion so that Human Rights are for All Humans, now that the naturally-ensuing rotten “Creeping Totalitarian” fruit of legal abortion cancelling the Inherent Human Right to Live has grown to its logical democracy-compromising maturity.  The logical ultimately totalitarian results of de-criminalized abortion (which followed the precedent of the totalitarian Soviets and Nazis in the first place) can no longer be hidden (as in the 6 Canadian assaults on democracy since 2015 listed before); this natural rotten fruit of abortion has grown too large, and they can no longer ignore the “Pro-Life” voice which can now point at obvious compromises of democracy which are specifically to ensure “abortion access” or other anti-traditional values contrary to Democracy’s Traditional, historical and logical foundations [defined clearly in Democracy 101].

So, as educated citizens in growing numbers start contacting the government – provincial and federal – and start [incessantly] asking hard questions, the government will no longer be able to ignore us without looking like uneducated fools at best and “totalitarian creeps” at worst.  We can ask them [with the same incessant tenacity the original Abolitionists used to end legal slavery], “Why do the Canada and Ontario governments (and U.S. and European and other governments) not believe killing humans is wrong, like every totalitarian State government does not?  Why does the Canadian government not recognize human rights for all humans, like every totalitarian State does not, and like every State where slavery is legal does not?  Why does our government no longer legally recognize the Inherent Human Right to Live because every human is EQUAL and PRECIOUS, which is the very foundation of Democracy – Like every totalitarian State does not?”

Just like the fall of Soviet Communism, the victory for traditional Western, democracy-grounding values of ending abortion – and ending “Creeping Totalitarianism” at the same time – is much, much, closer than you or anyone have ever expected.  If you want to start working on it right away, then come to Lasting Democracy Study Nights, soon to be started all over Canada and all over the West [once Democracy 101 and the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy is released in May as the text to read and discuss at such study nights], because we don’t have to be afraid of Creeping Totalitarianism in Western democracies anymore, we only have to stand up together against it in Solidarity, as EDUCATED “Democracy Pledgers,” and it will fall like the house of cards it is because our whole free and democratic way of life is based on our TRADITIONAL WESTERN, Christian and “Pro-Life” values as its necessary foundation.

[the end of the April 21, 2017 1st Media Release follows:]

Parts I and II of the above speech Human Rights for All Humans Because Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy emphasize the intellectual, factual and logical basis of the traditional, Pro-Life Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy and their implications towards ensuring that lasting democracy defeats current worldwide trends of “Creeping Totalitarianism.”  But a “Part III” of the speech is currently being prepared, aimed specifically at Christians.  One does not strictly need to be Christian to hold these traditional Western Pro-Life values which all human rights and democratic freedoms were historically and logically built upon, and the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy within the new book Democracy 101 and the Pledge of Allegiance to Democracy has been written specifically so that non-Christians who also uphold traditional Western, democracy-grounding values (and who also want to keep their threatened democratic freedoms) can feel comfortable taking and spreading “the Pledge” so that human rights, religious freedom, and democracy for everybody can last long-term.  But the Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy are in fact specifically Christian values, which Christianity introduced the West to and which the West specifically adopted from Christianity starting in the 4th Century, and as such, Christians should have a particular interest in learning well and spreading these democracy-grounding values, and in supporting the spread of these values for the sake of precious human life and religious freedom.  Thus, Christians can watch for an upcoming “Part III” of the above speech, for now provisionally entitled Part III: The Spiritual and Prayer Dimension Needed to Back Up And Empower the Spread of the Human Rights Education Contained in Democracy 101 and Proclaimed in the Historic Speech Human Rights for All Humans because Pro-Life=Pro-Democracy.  Part III will include a Christian theological section entitled Foundation of the Foundations: God is Love – The Foundation of The Foundational Principles of Human Rights and Democracy.

In the meantime, Human Rights and Freedoms Forever! encourages everyone (Christian or not) who wants human rights and democratic freedoms to weather the current storms of “Creeping Totalitarianism” and last forever on their firm traditional, historical, scientific and logical foundations to GET INVOLVED in making sure they do last, by getting involved in implementing the Winning Strategy for the ‘Culture of Life’ to WIN the ‘Cultural War’ with the ‘Culture of Death,’ to Save Humanity Forever from ‘Creeping Totalitarianism,’ which was introduced in the speech.  Resources to assist doing so are available at the following:
