Let Us Give Thanks Historical Forms of Killing That Used to Be Socially Approved and Rampant but Can Barely Be Found Now Duels Gladiator games Burning of “witches” and “heretics” Historical Forms of Killing That Used to Be Socially Approved and Widespread Yet Are Now Fairly Uncommon in the World: Executions for crimes other than homicide Public killing or torture to “set an example” Ceremonial human sacrifice Law-enforced slavery Lynching, tar-and-feathering, and other vigilante mob violence Current Forms of Killing – Signs of Subsiding Abortion As of September 19, 2019, the Alan Guttmacher Institute headlines the abortion rate in the United States is still dropping.

#488 Democrats, Referendums

Dems: Action Alerts Act Blue is a conduit for on-line donations to Democratic organizations. Our member group Democrats for Life (DFLA) being such a group, they applied.

#485 Dresden Bombing & Fetal Corpses

Reactions to the Dresden Bombing/Fetal Corpses Connection Last week’s quotation, plus this week’s below, is about Ulrich Klopfer, the abortionist whose recent death led to discovering thousands of babies’ bodies stored. Two commentaries - Richard Stith: This reminds me of the public statements of our local Valparaiso abortionist of many decades, Dr. Frank Behrend. His family escaped from the Holocaust in Germany during his childhood. The guy clearly was affected by his experience.
