Your Pro-Life Movement in Action

Below is a sampling of some of the messages that I have received as a result of my public defense of the morality of aborting a fetus diagnosed with Down's syndrome. I've broken them down into categories (although some could very easily fit in more than one).


I'm Pro-Life, and you need to die or otherwise suffer

He advocates murder, so let him demonstrate his commitment to his philosophy first hand.
He is an abomination.

I would like to respond to Nicholas Provenzo's statement that Sarah Palin should have aborted her baby, Trig, when she realized that he had Down syndrome. Does he need to be reminded that Hitler got his start by killing the disabled? What civilized society debases itself by killing someone or group of someone's based on physical or mental disability? It is compassion for each other, whatever their perceived short-comings, that sets us apart from barbarians. Does Mr. Provenzo need to be reminded that F.D.R. was unable to walk, that Beethoven couldn't hear, that Einstein was "learning disabled", that Thomas Edison was described by his teacher as "addled",that Joseph Pulitzer and Zohar Sharon were blind? Obviously Mr. Provenzo considers himself to be perfect, and in a position to make the judgment as to whether another human being is qualified to live. I would like an opportunity to assess Mr. Provenzo's disabilities and determine whet!
her his mother made a mistake. Maybe he should be eliminated because of his own disability - to tolerate the imperfections of others.

Your premise that Down Syndrome babies, and Sarah Palin's baby in particular,should be aborted, is definitely not shared by me. And what has the issue to do with capitalism, anyway?
Eugenics is the beginning of the breakdown of civilized society. From this springboard all life is subject to 'someone's' decision that 'anyone's' life has no value and should be terminated.
All life should be respected. And if that is not to be honored, I humbly submit that the author of this atrocious article should be deemed of no value and he be first in line.

Nicholas Provenzo

When did Mr.Provenzo join the Schutzstaffel? OMG ,Himmer, Heydrich and Eichmann would be so proud of him, not to mention Der Fuhrer himself.
Sarah Palin should have EXTERMINATED her baby????? How about giving all the retards and mentally ill a final bus ride? You should call yourself the Center for the Advancement of National Socialism and Aryan Eugenics. By the way, I see how well Capitalism is advancing now courtesy of PUBLIC money doled out by the PRIVATE Federal Reserve to the greedy, greasy thumbed, shysters, swindlers and chislers of Wall Street and the Banking Industry. I see how Capitalism has advanced itself...inflate the prices of tract homes to astronomical levels, courtesy of the crooked mortgage industry and its phoney appraisers. Induce the suckers who own these homes to refinance, after all it's "free money" isn't it? As each carnivore up the food chain gets his fees, then sell the phoney paper overseas. The CEO gets his "golden parachute" and the company collapses along with housing prices, not to worry though, Uncle Ben will step in and "rescue" the collapsin!
g firm with public capital. Don't get me wrong boys, I'm no Marxist, but capitalism needs to be WELL REGULATED like nuclear energy. It's just that we pulled out all the damper rods and now we're heading for critical mass and then KABOOM!! Really though, Provenzo went way over the top with his Palin comments. ANARCHISM- the theory that all forms of government and regulation are oppressive and should be abolished.

However, since it is God, and God alone who gives life, and God and God alone who has the authority to take life, Nicholas Provenzo should be thanking Him that he wasn't given to a mother who would abort him.

Mr. Provenzo's hideous comments are waking up Americans to what true proabortionists actually think. This is a service that he is exposing the very nazi like philosophy he espouses. "She had a duty"? to kill her down syndrome child? Maybe we have a duty to execute men like Mr. Provenzo who would turn our society into the godless nazi socialist state that would execute all 'the useless eaters'. What are we coming to that this man felt he could express such garbage in a public forum and not be despised?

I am the mother of two special needs adopted children. I suppose Mr. Provenzo would have had her killed if only he had known. What a piece of human debris he is. What an evil man. Ayn Rand must have been a bitch, and Provenzo is an abomination, a wart on the public discussion. The man gives a bad name to capitalism, which I have always felt is the best economic system in the world. I still do. Change the name of your institution or change your policies.

What part of the underworld are you deriving your gall and outright barbarian remarks toward a woman that "chooses" to give LIFE to a baby with down syndrome? There are multitudes of children born every day with maladies ranging from cleft palate to club feet...are they next?
One day, my friends, you will stand before God and give an account of your life (one that was extended by your mother that you seek to deprive from another) and the utterly callous disregard for a human made in God's image. God have mercy on your soul..more than you can muster for "the least of these".

Re: the following

"Like many, I am troubled by the implications of Alaska governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin's decision to knowingly give birth to a child disabled with Down syndrome," Provenzo writes.

"Given that Palin's decision is being celebrated in some quarters, it is crucial to reaffirm the morality of aborting a fetus diagnosed with Down syndrome (or by extension, any unborn fetus)—a freedom that anti-abortion advocates seek to deny," he adds."

Mr. Provenzo - you are sick. Who died and made you God? Part of the freedom of being an American is the right to make your own decisions. I really don't think the Palins (or anybody else) really care what you think about their new son. There is NO 'morality' associated with killing an innocent human life. We can only wish that YOUR mother had aborted YOU, then you wouldn't be here spouting garbage and trying to spread your sick philosophy. May God have mercy on your twisted soul. You liberals will sink to the depths of hell trying to smear Governor Palin. I sincerely hope it backfires on you.

You sir, and those with your view of murdering the unborn, will stand before our creator, God in heaven, and give an account for those murders. May God have mercy on your soul. I would pray that you would repent of those sins and turn to the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do not believe in Jesus, I would invite you to do a little studying on Bible prophecy for the end of days. It will shock you how accurate the Bible is in having predicted the geopolitical make up of the world in these last days.

The fact that you, through Provenzo, can even suggest Governor Palin made the wrong decision by choosing not to abort her baby is appalling. How the hell can you even entertain the idea that you are dedicated to advancing individual rights when you denounce someone for doing what you deem wrong. Hypocrite is what you are and you do not stand for freedom of the individual so quit lying and saying that you do. My God, what an arrogant piece of crap you are. Communist agenda is what you are pushing. I support Governor Palin's decision to have her baby and I firmly believe the reason you are so against her is because she represents something you do not have and never will have..........she has morals and ethics and a firm belief in God........like those of us who will see you fry in Hell where you belong.

The article condemning Gov. Palin for NOT aborting her Down Syndrome baby is the most horrendous opinion of human life and worth I have ever read. Past proponents allowed that abortion was a tragedy-yes-but an altogether necessary one. You however have gone one step further and revealed the true vileness of your hearts condition - that of being nothing more than an incredibly selfish promoter of murder of others who inconvenience YOUR lifestyle in any way, shape, or form. I am sure you also promote support of abortion if in any capitalistic way you can "turn a buck"!!! The blood on your unbelievably wicked hands as promoter of such a view will most certainly damn your eternal soul to an everlasting hell far worse than the life you wish to thrust on others unless you come to your senses and repent. Each conceived lifes' inalienable right to life comes from the hand of God, and no one has the right to take it from Gods' hand, (even IF they exersize the power !
to do so). To defend the weak, and helpless (even such a worthless one as you have made yours' to be) is the most noble, and highest aspiration of man.

Ancient cultures would take deficient babies up to the top of mountains and temples and throw them down (abort) for sacrifices. They did not have the medical advancements that enabled them to extract babies from the womb, or to suck their brains through a syringe and then flush them down a toliet. You pagans at The Center for the Advancement of Capitalism think in the same sick immoral way.
Governor Palin made a moral choice to love her special needs baby boy and you have the nerve to dispute her decision.

I am appalled by the remarks made about Governor Palin in that she should have aborted her youngest instead of allowing him to be born. What is wrong with this person? Has this person no humanity or compassion? All babies are gifts from Almighty God and human beings have no right to destroy what He has decreed to be created. I think Governor Palin did the right thing. Down syndrome is not a death sentence, children born with this disorder are sent here from God to reteach mankind how to have compassion and love for their fellow human beings. To say that they should not be born at all, is cruel and deprives society of lovely human beings. So what if they have challenges, challenges are a part of life and God's tests of faithfulness to His teachings, whether you call Him by Almighty God, Creator, Allah, Father, Heavenly Father, these terms mean all the same thing. For shame and I feel really sorry for that commentor's immortal soul that is almost certain to go into the!

Reportedly, Nicholas Provenzo has witten an article condemning Gov. Sarah Palin for giving birth to a Downs Syndrome child. I urge you to become familiar with God's word which is the Holy Bible. Children are a blessing from God and one day all people will bow to God, and will be
judged by God. Some will be chosen to spend eternity in paradise with God and others will be cast into Hell to spend eternity. Hell is a place of continuous torment (never-ending) prepared for the devil and his angels and all who deny God. Please reconsider your stand on abortion and seek Jesus as your saviour before it is too late.

I already live in a country that agrees with my philosophy. It's America and here, a woman's moral choice to abort her fetus is absolutely legal—that is, at least for now:

Nicholas Provenzo claims that a mother has a moral right to abort her baby if it has Down's Syndrome if that is what she wants to do. I believe he is advocating Nazi-style eugenics. Every baby is a gift from God, even if it suffers from retardation and no one has the right to play God, least of all Mr. Provenzo.

Since Provenzo's opinions on a woman's right to commit murder are utterly beneath contempt, I'll only say this: evisceration in the womb would have been good a fate for the likes of him, but since it's too late for that, let's just say that when God finally gives him the justice he deserves for his wretched life, I hope He turns the screws just that much harder.
I'd respond by saying I only subscribe to a rational morality and not the mystical ravings of the nomadic sheep-herders of antiquity.

Relative to Nicholas Provenzo's comment about the "morality" of aborting an unborn baby with Down Syndrome, I am wondering to what moral authority he is appealing?

There is only ONE moral authority and that is God our Creator. Any other set of "morals" are of man and therefore relativist. One could just as easily establish a set of "morals" that make it permissable to kill someone who writes articles that are contrary to their own personally held beliefs. How would Mr. Provenzo respond?

The comment that Nicholas Provenzo made regarding the birth of Trig Palin is absolutely atrotrious. Is this man a devil is disguise? How can anyone with any heart and soul say that a child born with Down Sydromes should be killed in-utero? This man should look into this little boy's eyes first, and then make his comment. He is a coward in every sense of the word because anyone with any degree of compassion in them would see that little boy for the remarkable person that he is. Provenzo should be FIRED for making such a stupid and idiotic statment...he should also be checked over in a mental institution. I think he has lost not only his soul but his mind as well.

It's days like this reading comments like those that shed some light on how the leftists think they can claim a moral high ground against their "adversaries." The leftists are so consistently wrong, so catastrophically so, that my usual inclination is to dismiss their ravings on the probability that the rightists against whom they rave are, if inelegant, at least fundamentally decent folks. Well, those responses pretty much blew that supposition out of the water. I begin to wonder if Peikoff had it right by suggesting we vote for the most Stalinist bastards we can identify in any given election, from Obama on down. At least then the contrast will become clear and the pain that will be inflicted upon the body politic will be very, very real. Marginal "wedge" issues like abortion take a backseat when the standard of living drops far enough, and liberty actually becomes a palpable concept for Joe Sixpack.

revereridesagain said...

what a lovely bunch of people and "abotuion" is possibly the most creative spelling of that word I've encountered.

It's an interesting psychological inversion, isn't it? As the poor little drooling Down Syndrome baby becomes the center of attention, the healthy and intelligent children fade into the background. They aren't as important. They aren't "special needs". They can't "transform" and "enrich" these doting parents like the baby with the Pervasive Development Disorder does. Perhaps the normal kids come to be slightly neglected during their childhoods. Perhaps it is subtly suggested to them, repeatedly, over the years, that they are so "lucky" to be "normal" while little Trig or whoever deserves so much more attention and, yes, love. After all, God will not reward them for loving their healthy children, but He has set apart a mansion in Heaven for those who choose to bring a deformed infant into the world.

The whole thing is so sick and destructive, and now the McCain campaign has institutionalized it by choosing a running mate with whom this issue is central. Palin doesn't just want to force rape victims to have the rapist's baby, she hopes that baby will have Down Syndrome so the rapee-mommy will be "enriched" and "transformed" by the experience. Think I'm indulging in hyperbole? Try pinning her into a corner with that question at a Q&A and watch her try to squirm around it. Should be quite illuminating.

Nick, you deserve the gratitude of every woman for whom the right to choose has ever been an issue. And that's millions and millions of us. Thank you.

I especially loved the one which pointed out that ancient cultures used to drop retarded babies into ravines or leave them on the sides of mountains.

fortunately, because of capitalism, and the resulting advances in medical technology, all that unnecessary pain and suffering can be avoided through abortion.

you'd think that because of this alone, Christians would be embracing abortion with open arms.

come to think of it, the biggest reason why those cultures did that to retarded babies was because the standards of living before the spread of secularism and capitalism was so poor no one could afford the luxury of raising a disabled child.

Katie said...

Grant said it right. The only reason these people can afford to raise 'special needs' children is because of the wealth they enjoy courtesy of our history of capitalism and the capitalist elements remaining in our economy.

And poor people the world over today are also forced to be rid of disabled children in one way or another, due to the sheer need to survive themselves, at one point or another in the child's development - whether it's outright infanticide, murder, abandonment, social estrangement, lifelong poverty or starvation. Funny how people ignore that fact. It's only us wealthy people in wealthy nations that have a moral obligation to sacrifice our money, time, attention, love and lives to the handicapped.

Your money's yours till you have a lot, your life is yours till you can freely live it, you're free to think till somehow you don't have a choice anymore, you're good until you're good at being good...

What's the term for these people's views, particularly the women's? Oh yeah: Sanction of the victim.

Contrary to the torrent of hate, your article -- and typically pro-choice in general -- does not mandate any particular action concerning Down's Syndrome fetuses at all. That's exactly the point: it's about whether adults have a right to make their own choice, rather than have it imposed upon them by theocratic edict and the will of an angry lynch mob.

And do I need to point out the extreme irony of threatening you in the name of "life"? Honestly.

This kind of hatred can only come from those who have left reason totally behind.

Wow. I wonder what became of the commandment, "Judge not and ye shall not be judged."

But seriously, I find it interesting that one never hears Christians express this sort of hatred for mass murdering Muslims or even for run-of-the-mill serial killers and child molesters. The typical Christian response to those individuals is to invoke pity and ask for God's mercy on their souls.

But what they absolutely cannot tolerate is the existence of an independent mind -- one willing to make its own judgment’s and stand by them, in contradiction to Christian dogma. Apparently, anything may be forgiven and forgotten -- except the man who refuses to bow.

Pawhoo said...

So a retarded child is a gift from God. I'd rather have a gift from Target. At least then, if it's defective, I can return it for a replacement or a refund.

If children are created in the image of God, does that mean that he, also is retarded? (Mea culpa. I meant He with that big "H." I have to be more careful. I was begining to feel the heat from the flames lashing up from hell.)

Since God created everything, that means he created Satan. Is he also in the image of God?

Can you imagine how demoralizing it would be to a normal child to be told that his sibling, who is retarded is "special," but he/she is not? Look at the immoral waste of money spent on trying to educate a retard so that after a year, it might be able to pronounce the letter "A." And in the meantime, the sibling is denied everything that money could have provided.

While I support 100% the right of a woman to give birth to a retard or any other kind of defective child, I think to do so is evil to the core.

Two comments about those who condemn Nick to hell and worse:

One, ad hominen appears not to be in their vocabulary. Ad hominen is not an argument; it is a confession that you have no argument.

Two, what's up with all this judging? Didn't the Bible and it's alleged author say, "Judge not that ye be not judged?"

Looks to me like it's these commenters who are on the expressway to hell.
