Planned Parenthood Confirms Hack Attack

Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. To Aid Mothers and Kids. 2012

Note well that the “Po-Life” poseurs are FOR the “War on Terror”, but AGAINST Single-Payer Healthcare and State-Funded Family Aid… fancy that… it’s like the hangsman calling himself a “Lifespan Modifier”… same thing… I’ve got to find a corner to be sick in… such hypocritical vacuity and self-indulgent fatuity is just too much of a muchness…

On Monday, Planned Parenthood called on the FBI and the US Department of Justice for help managing cyber security after anti-abortion activists targeted the reproductive health care group’s website, the latest in a series of attacks by activists opposing women’s access to safe reproductive health care. On Monday, The Daily Dot online newspaper reported that a hacking group gained access to Planned Parenthood’s website databases with the names and email addresses of its employees. Planned Parenthood executive vice president Dawn Laguens confirmed that “extremists” attempted to hack the organisation’s systems but didn’t say whether they succeeded, saying, “Extremists have broken laws, harassed our doctors and patients, produced hack videos, and now are claiming to have committed a gross invasion of privacy… one that, if true, could potentially put our staff members at risk”.

The Daily Dot reported that the hackers said they plan to release the organisation’s internal emails soon. On their website, the hackers said they were “seeking to reclaim some sort of lulz* for the years and thousands of dollars that Planned Parenthood have wasted and made harvesting your babies”. The self-professed “social justice warriors” were referring to secretly recorded videos released earlier this month that purported to show Planned Parenthood officials discussing ways to perform abortions to preserve foetal tissue for research and the costs involved. The cyberattack follows weeks of debate among lawmakers in which Republicans have sought to investigate and defund the organisation after the release of the videos. Planned Parenthood receives nearly 500 million USD (29.95 billion Roubles. 3.11 billion Renminbi. 31.92 billion INR. 647 million CAD. 680 million AUD. 452 million Euros. 320 million UK Pounds) in federal funding each year.

  • lulz: internet slang, denotes the joy received when one upsets another’s emotional equilibrium, often used of or by internet trolls. Interestingly, it means that the anti-abortion activists admit that they’re nothing but vindictive trolls!

On Monday, US House of Representatives Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said the US Congress should immediately cut off funding for the group until investigations by two House committees are complete, saying at a news conference, “These are serious questions and regardless of where anybody stands on the issue, knowing the doubt of what’s going on here, is this a place that tax dollars should be spent?” Last week, Republican presidential candidate US Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) began fast-tracking legislation to eliminate the group’s federal funding, which could allow for a Senate vote as early as this week.

Editor:

Firstly, the referenced videos are frauds, and lawyer friends tell me that the activists may have made them under illegal conditions. The more that comes out on this, it makes it clear that the so-called “Pro-Life Movement” is fraudulent, amoral, violent, and without scruple… all of which means that no decent person can have ANY relationship with it. The Pro-Life Movement is NOT such… rather, it’s an “Anti-Abortion Movement”, which isn’t the same thing at all. Most “Pro-Lifers” support the Republican Anti-Life Agenda… perpetual warmongering in foreign parts, promiscuous use of the death penalty, draconian use of police violence, massive imprisonment of minority populations, torture of kidnapped “suspects” in secret overseas locales (Scalia gave it the thumbs-up and called it “legal”… he’s the American analogue of Wilhelm Frick), lavish giveaways to the Affluent Effluent, opposition to a proper Single-Payer Healthcare System, and slashing of the Social Safety Net. In short, they support the demonic goals of the present Republican Party. The Church can have NOTHING to do with this. If you see someone putting forth the submission that the US Pro-Life Movement and the Church agree, they’re not only wrong, they’re often consciously wrong. They KNOW that the Church doesn’t agree with the GOP Greedster agenda… but they don’t care!

Shall we have a REAL Church to hand on to our kids? Not if we let the “Pro-Lifers” hijack it, we won’t!

25 July 2015. Why Orthodoxy has NOTHING in Common with the Sect Known as “Evangelicalism”

00 god told us to hate you. 190715

______________________________

Read this and this. Both of these stories point up the fact that the “Evangelicals” want to impose their “religion” on the rest of us. The second story points up the fact that they’re not very scrupulous in their methods, either. The Pro-Life Movement has swallowed the false videos completely, without a scrap of critical examination. Now, it’s clear that this movement has no scruples, no morals, no compunction… “Any stick to beat Planned Parenthood”… such amorality and contempt for the truth is not in line with what the Church has ALWAYS stood for. As for ramming one’s religion down another’s throat in the name of “Freedom of Religion”… well, I’m not the only one to find it hypocritical; besides that, it’s illegal in a secular republic. The state doesn’t care what religion or creed you profess… that’s the law of the land. To expect the state to give you preferential status due to your “sincerely-held religious beliefs” isn’t only against man’s law… it’s against God’s Law, too.

It’s time to shut up the loudmouth rightwing asshats amongst us. It doesn’t reflect what the Church teaches and it brings unnecessary shame upon us. We aren’t rightwing crazies. No, we don’t agree with EITHER conventional “Liberals” or “Conservatives” in the American sense. We should stop waving placards and start helping unwed mothers… if a gay person walks into our store, we have the obligation to treat them as Our Lord Christ would have done… with dignity and respect (and, certainly, with no condescension, either). After all, we can choose to follow Christ or Caiphas… the choice is yours… choose wisely…

23 July 2015. Someone Has to Say This… The Chicanery of “Pro-Life” Activists Has to END

bullshit

******

00 isaac asimov quote. 230715

******

00 reject deceptive propaganda. 230715

This cartoon’s basis is in misleading deceptively edited videos issued by extremist “Pro-Lifers”… no conscious Orthodox Christian should have anything to do with the so-called “Pro-Life Movement”… be truly Pro-Life, YES… to support an arm of the warmongering anti-people Republican Party, NO.

______________________________

Someone has to say it. I’ll stand up and take the heat. The US Pro-Life Movement is a set of lying scumbags with no morals, no scruples, and no grounding in the truth. NO Orthodox Christian should ally themselves, their parish, or any other Orthodox organisation with this set of Republican poseurs. NO… we are NOT allowed to fib as “Church”. We are NOT allowed to use dirty and deceptive means… for that dirties and bespatters the end in view. We do NOT shoot abortion providers… we do NOT shout nasty words at Planned Parenthood staff… we do NOT block public sidewalks to indulge narcissistic self-aggrandisement. Most of all, we don’t stand for lies in the name of the Truth. The videos that undergird the present media frenzy upon are deceptively edited and chopped apart by anti-abortion pro-war pro-death penalty Republican crazies. The Church has NOTHING in common with such extremist nutters. Help unwed mothers… YES! Disseminate conscious lies… NO, A THOUSAND TIMES, NO.

I know this will open me to all kinds of abuse from the usual cast of rightwing crazies in Church circles. So be it. Fuck the lot of you. I stand with the Truth, which means rejecting Falsehood, especially, Falsehood that purports to do “Good”. Woe to those who call good “evil” and evil “good”. I need say nothing more. I stand behind everything that I just wrote.

May God see and judge…

21 July 2015. Anti-Abortion Group Issues False Videos of Planned Parenthood… I Think It Best for the Church to Have NOTHING to do With the So-Called “Pro-Life Movement”

00 06.10.12 Oppose the Republican Anti-Life Programme

******

00 oppose the republican anti-life programme 02. 170615

00 oppose the republican anti-life programme 03. 170615

______________________________

Sad to say, the American “Pro-Life” Movement has become conscienceless liars and cheats. Read this. NO, I’m NOT arguing for a “Pro-Choice” position… but I AM saying that there are limits that Christians can NOT cross. To issue lying and deceptive videos is indeed one such “red line”. Perhaps, the best way to handle this is for the Church to get out of the organised “Pro-Life” movement (which is mostly a stalking horse for viciously anti-life Republicans). We should concentrate our efforts on helping unwed mothers… that appears the most pressing sector to me. Let others make lying claims and shout and carry placards… we should help those in need, full stop. We should NOT march in rallies… we should NOT picket Planned Parenthood… we should help every unwed mother that we can, regardless of who or what they are.

That’s what Our Lord Christ would’ve done. I need say no more…
