(WND News Center) – Something is needed to both educate and to shock the conscience of this nation after almost half a century suffering with The Great American Abortion Holocaust. What could be better than to hear “directly” from those most affected by abortion-homicide, from the potential victims themselves – preborn American voices crying fearfully and defiantly from the womb?

Those “voices” are expressed in their own “Declaration of Rights,” that also makes the first-person accusation that abortion is the most horrific crime against humanity in history – a holocaust of shame that will haunt America’s reputation and American consciences even more than slavery.

The first-person aspect of this column and of “A Declaration of Human and Constitutional Rights by PreBorn Americans” (read it here) is like a fictional play or movie conveying valid life lessons.

In other words, readers will – as all of us do with novels and movies – accept the premise of the preborn “speaking,” which allows meaning to be conveyed from the potential victims’ perspective using some arguments and reasoning that generally can’t be made by the post-birth people involved in the abortion/life debate.

The Declaration is patterned after the Declaration of Independence but is written from the perspective of preborn Americans, a group heretofore silent and, therefore, abstract for too many especially those running from the scientific fact that every abortion kills an innocent human being.

The “Declaration … by PreBorn Americans” uses the introductory and concluding paragraphs from the 1776 Declaration adapted to this cause (reproduced below). The 31 numbered sections in the middle, entitled “It is a scientific fact” or “It is a fact …,” are used to discuss those facts and to make important points guiding readers through it one subject at a time.

PETITION UPDATE (9/3/21)

Following the US Supreme Court's decision to allow Texas' Heartbeat Law to go into effect, Joe Biden made the announcement that he would initiate a "whole-of-government" response against the new pro-life statute which could ban abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.

This is yet another, outright confirmation of Biden's openly pro-abortion policies, policies which have the main objective of ensuring that women will continue to be able to kill their own children without impediment.

This anti-life, anti-Catholic stance needs to be urgently addressed and condemned by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

For the good of the Church, for the good of pre-born babies, for the good of the faithful, and, indeed, for his own good, Joe Biden needs to be publicly rebuked by the bishops and excommunicated until such time as he repents from his pro-abortion policies.

Please continue to SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks the bishops of the United States to act in unison to exclude Joe Biden from Holy Communion for his scandalous promotion of abortion - the murder of the innocent.

After signing, please take a moment to CONTACT the offices of the USCCB to politely, but firmly, encourage the Conference to take the necessary steps to exclude from Holy Communion public officials who continue to show blatant disregard for innocent human life and the Church's teaching.

The USCCB's Office phone number is: 202.541.3000

Thank you!

"No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon." - Matthew 6:24

In the lead-up to their meeting in mid-June, we call on the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to exclude Joe Biden and other “Catholic” politicians (like, Nancy Pelosi) from Holy Communion over their public, obstinate, and scandalous promotion of abortion.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition which asks the USCCB to act to stop the abuse of the reception of the Holy Eucharist by politicians who promote the murder of innocent pre-born babies.

We know that making a decision to exclude public figures from Holy Communion is not easy. But, sometimes, this is the only way to make them understand the error of their ways, and to preserve the Church from serious scandal.

Indeed, Canon Law (Canon 915) declares that those who persist in manifest, grave sin should not be admitted to Holy Communion

Beyond that, at this point, public excommunication appears as the only suitable response for Biden's obstinate, public and grave sin of promoting abortion.

In doing so, we do not hold ourselves up as judges over Joe Biden's eternal soul, but we encourage the bishops to make known one of the consequences of public and obstinate support of abortion by our 'Catholic' politicians.

The fact is, in terms of the manifest, grave sin of abortion, Joe Biden is as bad as he said he would be before the election.

Therefore, it is cold comfort that the USCCB is only preparing to discuss this issue only now.

But even now, if the USCCB publicly excommunicate Biden for his pro-abortion stance (as well as other pro-abortion politicians), the Conference could reclaim some of the moral authority which they lost by their largely silent assent to Biden's candidacy.

Please SIGN and SHARE this petition, now.

Since Joe Biden was sworn-in on the 20th of January, he has wasted no time in signing orders and bills which facilitate the destruction of unborn human life.

  • In one executive order, Biden rescinded the Mexico City Policy prohibiting the federal government from spending taxpayer monies on abortion and the promotion of abortion.
  • Biden also signed (instead of vetoing) the COVID relief bill, which, for the first time in 44 years, contained funding for abortions in America, using taxpayer dollars.
  • Biden said that he wouldn't defend Hyde, and he hasn't.

And, if he and the Democratic Party get their way, a lot more of the same regarding abortion is on the way.

Strong action must be taken lest anyone, especially young people, be confused by the scandal of a "Catholic" in Biden's position aggressively promoting abortion, enabling the killing of innocent human beings.

American rank-and-file Catholics don't want any more compromise and equivocation from the Bishops Conference on this "pre-eminent" life-and-death issue.

We want clear action, not twenty more years of dithering and "dialoguing."

50 million babies have been lost to abortion in the U.S. since Roe!

So, we will NOT accept any more lives lost as a result of dithering and "dialoguing." [**Please see "Notes" below about how it has been reported that some senior U.S. clerics are trying to prevent this discussion from even taking place.]

And, we will especially NOT accept one life lost to abortion by politicians who claim the Catholic Faith, but who promote grave evil. God forbid!

With all due respect to these bishops, they diminish the Holy Eucharist and their high office, as well as cause grave scandal to the faithful, by not imposing public canonical penalties on a man who is promoting mass murder of the unborn against the constant teaching of the Church.

The bishops are now at a crossroads and must choose either God or mammon.

We call on them to choose God and choose Life!

And we also continue to encourage those brave, true and good bishops who have done well to warn Amercian Catholics about the perils to the unborn and the Faith resulting from Biden's promotion of abortion!

SIGN and SHARE this petition, which asks the bishops of the United States to act in unison to exclude Joe Biden from Holy Communion for his scandalous promotion of abortion - the murder of the innocent.

After signing, please take a moment to CONTACT the offices of the USCCB to politely, but firmly, encourage the Conference to take the necessary steps to exclude from Holy Communion public officials who continue to show blatant disregard for innocent human life and the Church's teaching.

Notes about USCCB's June Meeting:

For nearly twenty years, the US bishops have been dithering about whether or not to excommunicate pro-abortion politicians by formally withholding Holy Communion from them.

Their indecision on this gravely scandalous matter is a scandal in itself, but one of the biggest obstacles has been internal opposition from senior U.S. bishops.

And, although the faces have changed in the last 20 years, their morally-and-intellectually-challenged arguments against excommunication have not changed.

Liberal bishops of the USCCB say that excommunicating Biden (for example) would divide the Church, divide the bishops, and would politicize the reception of Holy Communion.

Indeed, in the name of “unity,” it is reported that some senior U.S. clerics, including Cardinal Blase Cupich (Chicago), Cardinal Wilton Gregory (Washington, DC) and Cardinal O’Malley (Boston), have been working overtime to prevent any substantial discussion of so-called “Eucharist coherence” (that is, what qualifies as worthy reception of Holy Communion).

It is also reported that at least 57 other American bishops allegedly joined these Cardinals in a recent letter to the Head of the Bishops Conference, Archbishop Gomez of Los Angeles, to try to pressure him to drop the planned discussion at the full meeting of bishops in June.

And now, even the Vatican is getting involved, with the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith suggesting that even more “dialogue” is needed.

These same clerics may mistakenly believe that any attempt to suppress the objective connection between a politician’s promotion of abortion and his unworthy reception of Holy Communion will fool anyone.

But, it will not.

Rank-and-file Catholics are not stupid and can smell compromise a mile away, and we’ve had enough.

With all due respect to the Cardinal, bishops, and the Vatican…those who fail to act diminish the Holy Eucharist and their high office, as well as cause grave scandal to the faithful, by “dialoguing” with a man who is promoting mass murder of the unborn against the constant teaching of the Church.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition urging the bishops Conference to take action at their June meeting to exclude pro-abortion Joe Biden and other abortion-promoting “Catholic” politicians from Holy Communion.

This is an overview of some of those sections from the declaration which explain:

  • The scientific fact that motherhood and fatherhood also begin at the moment of conception with the new life created and, from that moment, those parents do not have “a choice” but rather have a sacred obligation to nurture the child they just created (sections 1-2);
  • that mothers who abort their children are 81% more likely to experience subsequent mental health and other problems (section 22) and need to find forgiveness (section 2);
  • the scientific (sections 1, 3-5) and legal (section 6-7, 21, 24) facts that refute the Roe v. Wade ruling that preborn Americans are merely “potential life” (Roe, page 162) and “… that the word ‘person,’ as used in the 14th Amendment, does not include the unborn” (page 158);
  • that the word “person” is a legal fiction that enabled the Roe Court to legalize the mass killing of preborn life, which would have been impossible if it had used the scientifically accurate phrase “living individual” (sections 23-24);
  • if the Supreme Court has the authority to declare that “constitutional personhood” begins at any time other than the moment science has determined when human life begins, at conception/fertilization, then there is nothing to stop it from authorizing abortion-homicide post birth as some Democrats advocate should be done (“The case for ‘after-birth abortion’ draws a logical path from common pro-choice assumptions to infanticide. It challenges us, implicitly and explicitly, to explain why, if abortion is permissible, infanticide isn’t”) (section 25);
  • that the medical profession’s participation in abortion-homicide has “blurred the line between killing and curing” (sections 16-17) and that such doctors are the moral equivalent of the infamous Dr. Josef Mengele, the Nazi “Angel of Death.”;
  • that abortion has its roots in the Marxist plan to destroy the nuclear family and American society (section 15);
  • that cruelty has its own psychology and lexicon and that the advocates for abortion-homicide are no different in that regard than the Nazis or Southern slave masters. The use of euphemisms (“it,” “clump of cells,” “P.O.C.” or “products of conception,” etc.) allows abortion-homicide advocates to pretend they are not killing a preborn child who will safely enter the world if left alone. Such dehumanizing language is used to desensitize both the public and pregnant mothers to accept abortion-homicide (sections 11 and 26);
  • that a mass delusion, a Big Lie, has captured the minds of all who believe there is “a right to choose” to kill preborn children (sections 12-14);
  • that the 63 million preborn babies slaughtered in The Great American Abortion Holocaust is 10 times the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews (section 19);
  • that the Democratic Party is the party of The Great American Abortion Holocaust (sections 10, 13, 21, 27, 29);
  • that America, to our eternal shame, is much, much worse that any child-sacrificing cult or primitive culture (sections 6,14);

We begin with the opening paragraphs of the Declaration, which, again, are patterned after, and make similar claims to the Declaration of Independence:

A Declaration of Human and Constitutional right by preborn Americans

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for a persecuted People to assert among the nations of the earth our unalienable Right to Life to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle us, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that we should declare the causes which impel us to this just and worthy Declaration and to explain why we are making an accusation of the most barbaric crime against humanity in history regarding all those who have participated in or who have approved of The Great American Abortion Holocaust.

We, the preborn next generation of Americans, hold these truths to be self-evident, that all scientifically identifiable [DNA] human individuals – from the moment of our creation, at conception/fertilization – are created equal with all post-birth human individuals, that we are endowed by the Creator of us all with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are:
