Press Release – Bloodmoney: the Business of Abortion

Thursday, September 16th, 2010





BALTIMORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The following was issued by director and producer David Kyle:

Bloodmoney is a Documentary (now available on DVD) that exposes the greed-driven politics of the abortion industry. Despite claims that the pro-abortion movement exists to help women, in reality it is little more than a vast money-making enterprise.

Narrated by Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, this film exposes the truth behind an industry that has harmed untold numbers of people and taken the lives of 50 million innocent children. In the film Dr. King speaks not only from the perspective of a post abortive woman, but as a civil rights leader about the injustice of abortion.

“Bloodmoney brings startling revelation to the forefront of the pro-life battle and exposes the true agenda behind the abortion industry. This film is truly part of the plan to set the captives free,” – Dr. Alveda King, director of African American Outreach, Priests for Life.

The film also features interviews from Carol Everett a former abortion clinic owner, as well as from pro-life leaders such as Frank Pavone, Joe Scheidler and others. This documentary film examines abortion in America, from the inception of Planned Parenthood to Roe v. Wade and the denial of when life begins. The makers also look at the profitability of the abortion clinics that keep this barbaric practice going. Finally, it shows the devastating effects abortion can have on the women that have them, and the continuing fight to save the lives of innocent babies.

The DVD is available online at Bloodmoneyfilm.com and the producers of the film are also licensing public screenings so that the truth behind the abortion industry can be exposed for what it is.

Violence…

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010





The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral,
begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy.
Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.
Through violence you may murder the liar,
but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.
Through violence you may murder the hater,
but you do not murder hate.
In fact, violence merely increases hate.
So it goes.
Returning violence for violence multiplies violence,
adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness:
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Every Speck of Life is Loved by God

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010





This beautiful poem was sent to me by a wonderful woman who felt led by the Holy Spirit to write this and then sent this to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

He will not forsake
or abandon or ignore
the tender life
within the womb.

God loves all life
on the land, in the air,
on the earth and in the sea.

The heavens are a vast expanse
yet, they cannot contain
an entire, single breath of God.

In relation to our Lord
the infinite universe is very small.
But, do not think that
the Lord is so great,
so far off,
so unreachable,
that he does not know you
as an individual and a beloved soul.

The Lord counts the heads of all his creation
every minute of everyday
aware of all their strength, courage and forbearance.

God knows every atom that moves freely.
He has breathed life into
every spark of being
though it be less than a second old.

God loves life and the potential of life.
It breaks the heart of the Lord
that his own loving creations
do not love the tiniest of his creations.

“When does life commence?”
they might ask in ignorance or arrogance.
To this he answers clearly,
“the second it entered my mind.”

God opens all doors and makes possible
all probabilities likely.
That tiny speck of life may hold
infinite possibilities -
this should never be overlooked.

It is through the mind, heart and soul
that all living things share themselves
with God and each other.
This is how the Lord shares himself with the multitudes.

Remember this, God loves all life.
He commands everyone
to protect the least among humankind.

Let no one allow the unborn to die
for the unborn are without fault
even when their conception was caused to happen
through suffering or pain.

A lack of love by humanity
does not mean
the unborn are not lovable by humanity.

Every spark of life
is one step closer to touching
the face of God and knowing
his gentle and awesome continence.

Remember 9/11?

Friday, September 10th, 2010





No, not 9/11 the day someone might burn the Koran or the controversy over the building of a Mosque at ground zero which happened on 9/11.

As 9/11/10 draws near, there is a lot going on in the news that would draw our attention from that horrific event that changed the course of America’s history forever. For those who lost a loved one in the tragic event and those directly involved in New York and Washington, DC, 9/11 is at the forefront of their minds. But for a lot of, dare I say most, other Americans, 9/11 is still a day we will never forget but it’s not woven into our daily lives. So when an Imam says he wants to build a Mosque near ground zero or when a Pastor in Florida says he wants to burn a Koran and wants to go public with it, our attention is diverted from the real significance of 9/11, mainly to remember those that lost their lives in the terrorist attack and to remember that we need to stay vigilant in order to remain safe.

America is the greatest country in the world. You wouldn’t know it though by all the news lately. Just two weeks after Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally I ask you, “[w]hat honor is there in burning another religion’s Holy Book or disregarding the feelings and wishes of, depending on the poll you look at, 60 to 75 percent of Americans.”

Why can’t we all just get along? We are all part of one race, the human race. We need to approach everything we do with love in our heart, the love of God. We need to treat each other with respect. We don’t have to agree with everyone or believe as they believe but we should at the very least respect each other’s beliefs or opinions.

To Pastor Kelly, live out the word of God in your life and by your example you will change man’s heart. I read that you changed your mind and then I read that you haven’t said definitely that you won’t burn the Koran. I implore you not to put others in harm’s way because of your actions. In the Bible the apostles shared the Gospel on Mars Hill and at Ephesus, where the people burned their own books. So let’s ask, “what would Jesus do?”

To Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, you do have a constitutional right to build the mosque wherever you please but you shouldn’t building it in such close proximity to ground zero because it’s not the right thing to do. Please do the right thing and find another site to build your mosque.

On 9/11 let’s remember those that died, the families that lost a loved one or a good friend, those that are protecting us from another terrorist attack and most of all, let’s remember God because through Him all things are possible.

*** MEDIA ALERT ***

Black Leaders Call for Pro-Life Economic Recovery

Atlanta, GA – Dr. Alveda King, Director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life and Founder of King for America, today called on the President and Congress to bear in mind civil rights and the life issue when trying to fix the economy.

“Any meaningful economic recovery act undertaken by Congress must strive for a pro-life economic recovery,” said Dr. King. “We are calling for sensible and reasonable acts that will support life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for every American. These acts would include procreative reproductive health/choice efforts.”

“ Films like Maafa21 and Blood Money provide significant research that support our urgent plea to our governing officials,” said Alveda.

“For decades many of our officials have governed as though there are not moral consequences to their economic policies. That day is done,” said Catherine Davis of the “Toomanyaborted.com” Campaign.

“In this dismal economy, with seeminly endless unemployment, loss of homes, hope and American dreams, we are seeing millions and millions of our tax dollars going to fund organizations whose main purpose is to kill America’s children,” said Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union. “We urge an immediate end to all abortion funding with taxpayer money. Let’s use our hard earned tax dollars to renew the spirit of our nation by helping American’s live–not die!” concluded Gardner.

Pastor Dean Nelson of the Network of Politically Active Christians added, “ lawmakers who focus on the economy must ensure that their actions encourage the birth and not the termination of the next generation who will have to pay for all the debt we are now incurring.”

Dr. King concluded: “In his book GOOD RETURNS: MAKING MONEY BY MORALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTING, George Schwartz encourages us to put our money where our values are. This means we won’t invest in companies who fund abortions or euthanasia or the destruction of families. How can we be forced to invest our taxes into government funded abortion? How can the dream survive if we murder our children?”

“We are one human race, and we do not live by bread alone, and definitely not by aborting our children. For me this all translates not into the old model of “guns or butter,” but now is defined in the 21st century by this question: Do we invest in abortions or diapers?”

In Christ

It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

Friday, September 10th, 2010





Some of you may be too young to remember the classic movie, “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” released in 1963 by director, Stanley Kramer, staring Spencer Tracy, Milton Berle, Sid Ceasar, Buddy Hackett, and Mickey Rooney. It was a great comedy/adventure film that won an Oscar for Best Effects, Sound Effects and two Golden Laurel awards for Top Roadshow and Top Song. The film was also nominated for 9 other awards including Best Motion Picture by the Edgar Allen Poe Award. The film is very funny and you will laugh a lot. The film was re-released in 1970 with the tagline, – If ever this mad, mad, mad, mad world needed “It’s a mad, mad, mad, mad world” it’s now! That tagline is more true today than it was in 1970. Except that now this mad, mad, mad, mad, world is not a laughing matter.

In today’s news you read about one country after another either legalizing euthanasia or looking into legalizing it. The Netherlands and Switzerland already have laws that make euthanasia legal. Scotland is now holding hearings on a bill, Margo MacDonald’s End of Life Assistance Bill to legalize euthanasia in that country. A campaign will soon be underway in Australia to push for legalization of euthanasia. And in Quebec a Dying with Dignity Special Commission began its public hearings on Monday on that province’s push to legalize euthanasia. In researching for this blog, I came across this on Wikipedia.

It seems that more and more people want to end their lives when they are suffering and they don’t see any hope in their lives. People don’t see any value in suffering. Suffering helps us to pray, to turn to God, to offer up our suffering for the reparation of our sins and others, and it helps us witness to others about our faith, among other benefits. There are numerous website that elaborate on these values and do it much better than I can. Clearly, God, through his Word, states that we will suffer in our lifetime.

“If we are sons, we are heirs, heirs indeed of God, fellow heirs with Christ – if only we suffer with Him, so we may be glorified with Him. I judge that the sufferings of the present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that is to be revealed to us.” Romans 8:17-18

If we end our suffering prematurely, are we also forfeiting our inheritance?

“We prove we are servants of God by great fortitude in times of suffering.”…2 Cor. 6:4-10

Are we becoming a world that serves ourselves and not God? In times of suffering are we turning to man for help instead of God? And what of that doctor whom we turn for help. He/she has sworn a Hippocratic Oath which includes the following paragraph:

“I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art.”

It seems that many are turning their backs on this oath and are no longer acting in “purity and holiness” but are acting as gods.

God forgive us for not honoring You, for thinking that we know better, for taking life that you have ordained. Help us to become humble and to turn to You for our guidance.

Black Christians Debate Abortion as Civil Rights Issue

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010





The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., is pushing back against fellow African-American Christians who have accused her of hijacking the civil rights movement for her own political agenda – namely to protect the unborn.

“It is absolutely ludicrous that abortion supporters would accuse a blood relative of Dr. King of hijacking the King legacy,” Dr. Alveda King said in a statement Thursday. “My dad and my uncle gave their lives to ensure that the day would come when blacks would be judged not by the color of their skin, but the content of their character. If they were here, I know they would stand with me in this fight for the lives of those most vulnerable among us.”

Her comments were in response to statements made by the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice at a press conference Thursday. The coalition denounced the “religious right” for “disparaging clinics that provide abortion, birth control and reproductive health services.”

“It insults the intelligence and values of African Americans and is offensive to women who make conscientious moral decisions about pregnancy,” said the Rev. Dr. Carlton W. Veazey, president and CEO of the coalition.

The coalition also blasted the upcoming Restoring Honor Rally, led by Fox News’ Glenn Beck, and Alveda King’s “Freedom Rides for the Unborn” event as insulting and contrary to the famed civil rights leader’s ideals of justice, freedom and respect for the dignity of all people. The rally is being held Saturday at the Lincoln Memorial to mark the 47th anniversary of the historic “I Have a Dream” speech.

“The ‘Religious Right’ and the Tea Party can hold a rally on the anniversary of a time that is sacred in our nation’s march to equality but there is no question that they are not – and never have been – concerned about the African-American community or about the racism, poverty and injustice that Dr. King was dedicated to eradicating,” said Veazey.

According to the Guttmacher Institute, black women are more likely to have an abortion, at rates three to five times the rate of white women. The high abortion rate, however, has been linked to poverty and women of color tend to come from lower-income households.

While pro-life groups argue that the abortion industry is targeting African-American communities, Veazey said the higher abortion rates among black women are directly related to their higher rates of unintended pregnancy and to broader health disparities.

“Persistent reproductive health and health care disparities perpetuate a cycle of poverty and are serious problems for the African-American community. Providing comprehensive sexuality education for youth and expanding family planning and reproductive health care services are proven ways to improve health and life prospects,” he said.

“Closing clinics and scaring women and men can only hurt the African-American community.”

Meanwhile, Day Gardner, president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, believes abortion – especially in the black community – is the greatest civil rights battle of his time.

She questioned the religious convictions of clergy fighting for reproductive rights.

“It’s interesting to me to hear so called religious people call us the religious right – but that’s okay because they are obviously the complete opposite… they are the religious wrong!” Gardner commented. “Which begs the question: what God, if any, do they serve?”

“As for me, I serve the God of Abraham, Jacob and Isaac – the great I AM – Father of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and all things created. Those of us who serve the one true God acknowledge we are all made in his image. We bow to God’s Word when He says: ‘Blessed is the fruit of the womb.’ If God says children are a reward, a gift and our heritage, then we must uphold that all children are greatly valuable and desirable to God. So, I ask again, what God do they serve?”

On Saturday, Alveda King will urge Americans to stand with her at the Lincoln Memorial to boycott the abortion industry.
