“Like Slavery, Abortion Gives One Person “Ownership” of Another
by Niamh Ui Bhriain | Dublin, Ireland | | 2/14/14

Last week I finally got to watch the acclaimed film 12 Years a Slave, which tells the story of Solomon Northup, a free black man from upstate New York, who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in Louisiana.

It’s a harrowing and unflinching film that doesn’t spare the viewerand rightly so.

Slavery, a practice largely brought to the United States by the Dutch and British empires, was legal in that jurisdiction (and beyond) for two hundred years. The cruelty endured by the men, women and children forced into slavery at that time has, with some exceptions, largely gone untold on film.

Steve McQueen’s movie upends all that by revealing the horrors of slavery in unsparing detail, and the impact is devastating

The scenes of pitiless exploitation, sexual abuse, starvation, humiliation, and savage beatings are so profoundly disturbing that their imprint is unforgettable.

The cruelty and degradation is almost unimaginable, but it happened again and again, and it was given legal sanction, not because slave owners truly believed those held in slavery to be less than human, but because it was economically advantageous for them to do so.

In the role of malevolent slaveowner, Edwin Epps, the actor Michael Fassbender gives an unsettling portrayal of a deranged, sadistic and horrendously violent man. History shows there were, sadly, too many like him, and too many others, who turned a blind eye to the suffering of their fellow human beings.

However, the violence seen in screen isn’t the most shocking thing about the film. What’s most disturbing is that Epps and others were protected by the law, and that nothing in the law could have stopped Epps, or any slaveowner, from beating and killing these men, women and children.

Of course we already knew that to be true, but historical fact is thrown into sharp relief when the film shows the consequences of that law, and the utter helplessness of those who were enslaved by it.

These people, known as slaves, were, under law, the property of the slaveowner. They were, under law, less than human. They could be abused, beaten, even killed, under law, because a decision had been made to allow slaveowners the right to own people as property.

To me, there were striking and obvious parallels with abortion. It is now legal in many countries throughout the world to kill a child in the womb.

Those laws have effectively given ownership of the child in the womb to another. The child is like a piece of propertyor a non-humanwhich can be legally killed because of the decision of another (And it does not matter if that other is the mother. A mother can not murder her child outside of the womb. Under what perverted logical would it be proper within the womb. That is similar to you cant own a person as a slave north of the Mason-Dixon Line but you can own a person as a slave south of the Mason-Dixon Line. Oh right, that was the law! my addition).

The human rights of people held in slavery were subjugated to the dreadful notion that one human being had the right to main or kill another because of the owner’s ‘choice’ in deciding how to treat his ‘property’. Now the rights of preborn children have been subjugated to an industry which uses the same distorted logic of ‘my body, my choice’ to exploit women and kill their children (However, as we scientifically know, the body within the womb is not the body of the woman! Never was; never will be!my addition).


We have not, it seems, learnt from the shameful lessons of history. The dehumanisation of our fellow human beings, which was the hallmark of slavery, is now being used to justify abortion and keep it legal.

The noble efforts of a brave fewincluding Solomon Northupensured slavery was legally abolished in most parts of the world by the mid-eighteenth century. It is long past time for the abortion industry to face the same abolition (In the United States, 42 years past time! Pray for the end of the MURDER of the unborn! Then, work to bring it to an end!my addition).

I have said for a long time that the two worst decisions in Supreme Court history were the Roe v. Wade decision and the Dred Scott decision! Roe was the worst because it legalizedmurder and murder of the most innocent and most helpless!

It took a Civil War to bring an end to legalized slavery. Let us work diligently to end legalizedmurder without such a war. We are moving in the direct of ending it. Remain steadfast! It will happen if we do not lose heart and surrender the fight!                                                          

Proverbs 14: 34 (NIV)

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin condemns any people.”

Ephesians 5: 11 (NIV)

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.”

Galatians 6: 7-8 (NIV)

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.”

It is time for all of us who support the morality established by GOD to rebel against the forces of evil! Expose their evil and return to GODS word and will!

Christians were bold in the First Century church! Are Christians as bold today?

Christians were resolute in the First Century church! Are Christians as resolute today?

Christians stood for the truth in the First Century church! Are Christians standing for the truth today?

If not Christians, who? If not now, when?

This is my two part suggestion to Tea Party groups, social conservatives, Constitutionalists, and anyone else who wants to save our Republic from the approaching destruction.

1) Run as many conservative candidates in as many Republican primaries as possible.

2) Then, run as many independent and/or third party candidates as possible in as many races as possible where we did not win the primary.

If elected to Congress, I will not, under any circumstances, vote for present Speaker of the House John Boehner to be Speaker of the House. I call on every Republican primary candidate running in Texas Congressional District 19 to publicly (in writing) make the same pledge. It would not be a bad idea for every Republican candidate running for the House of Representatives to give the same pledge. See my post at on December 16, 2013 entitled “Speaker of the House John Boehner Attacks the Tea Party Again for Being Fiscally Responsible!”

If I am elected to the House, I will use the Constitution, as written, to do everything in my power to stop judicial tyranny! Will the other candidates pledge the same? I know our present Representative has NOT done everything possible to stop judicial tyranny! Why is that?

If elected to Congress, I pledge that I will do everything within my authority as a member of the House of Representatives to begin and complete impeachment proceedings against the President of the United States for violating the Constitution, the laws of the United States as passed by Congress, and his oath of office. I call on every Republican primary candidate running in Texas Congressional District 19 to publicly (in writing) make the same pledge. It would not be a bad idea for every Republican candidate running for the House of Representatives to give the same pledge.

Competition is good for the economy and competition is good for the Republican Party!!! Competition keeps Congressmen committed to we the people!!! Primary Republicans who do not support the Constitution as written.
