The REAL “Jaffe Memo”

Jaffe Memo - Horvath - image - featured imageI have been referencing the “Jaffe Memo” for some time in presentations and Jaffe on this blog.  It is a chilling look at the values and motivations of the ‘movers and shakers’ in the pro-abortion community, especially several decades ago, when they were working like mad to get abortion on demand legalized throughout the United States.  Far from being a matter of a “woman’s choice”, and with no regard whatsoever for a “woman’s health”, the primary concern had to do with the number and quality of the people on the earth.  The underlying ideology of ‘family planning’ was distinctly continue reading...

The Conquest of America by the Culture of Death and My Efforts to Fight Back

About a year ago, I was sitting across from a fellow who was asking me about my life with my daughter, diagnosed with spina bifida, and our decision not to abort her.  He respected our ‘choice’, although did express concern about her impending ‘life of suffering.’  We talked about that for a bit, as I sensed that his initial statements in support of being ‘pro-choice’ were incomplete.  “Should people be compelled to abort disabled children?” I asked.  Of course not, he said.  We talked more, and the next thing I know he is saying that we need abortion and … continue reading...

Jaffe Memo: Part 7, Religion, Politics, Scientism, Climate Change, and Secular Humanism

This series began as a reflection of the contents of the Jaffe Memo, a Planned Parenthood document from 1969 that discussed ideas for handling the ‘population’ crisis.  This memo succinctly lays bear an agenda that has been in play since before the Civil War, and as I have demonstrated in previous parts of this series (and elsewhere), is still very much with us today.  The problem, as I have argued, is that many issues that are in front of us today for consideration were actually put forward by the liberal progressives at the turn of the century, who hoped at … continue reading...

Why Religion and Politics Must Mix; Jaffe Memo reflections continued- part two

This morning I posted a lengthy post on the Jaffe Memo, a document provided by a vice-president of Planned Parenthood in 1969.  This memo has been making its rounds because it advocates for the encouragement of homosexuality, forced abortions, adding sterilants to the water supply, and so on and so forth.  All this, from an organization that we are told advocates for “women’s health” and “freedom.”

Of course, anyone who has studied Planned Parenthood knows that this is a crock.  It was always about population control and enriching elitists.  In the Jaffe Memo, they are uncharacteristically honest about it.  Read … continue reading...

Reflections on the ‘Jaffe Memo’ and why ‘Religion’ and ‘Politics’ should Mix- Part 1

[Updated 9/11/2015 with link to original source document]

Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson has set the pro-life blogosphere on fire with her posting of the ‘Jaffe Memo,’ a memorandum written by Frederick S. Jaffe, former vice-president of Planned Parenthood.  Jaffe apparently was in charge of PP’s population control agenda.  The memo was written in 1969.

The memo appears to be legit but I haven’t been able to find its original source.  Read it:

The original has been found and a corrected copy has been created.  Download it:

History of the Culture of Death

I delivered the following presentation at Concordia University at Seward, Nebraska, on Nov. 20th, 2010.  The event was hosted by Nebraska Lutherans for Life.  I explain what the ‘culture of death’ is and how it got here.  To invite me to present at your organization, you can get more information here.

The Culture of Death: Planned Parenthood, Eugenics, and… Climate Change? from Anthony Horvath on Vimeo.

Pro-life speaker Anthony Horvath recounts the history of the ‘Culture of Death’ from Thomas Malthus to Charles Darwin to Margaret Sanger to Peter Singer, with an array of personalities in between. Horvath … continue reading...

Social Issues and Economics Go Hand in Hand

Worldnetdaily.com published a column I wrote.  Read the whole thing.

Apparently, a letter has been written to GOP leaders by conservative homosexuals and some tea-party activists requesting that the GOP lay off its traditional pro-life stance. That would be horrible for many reasons. One reason: In actuality, de-emphasizing life issues is a threat to conservative notions about limited government and individual liberty.

The very first thing that has to be made clear is that those in the culture of death themselves strongly believe that social issues and economic issues are linked. The pro-death camp is perfectly able to present their … continue reading...

Planned Parenthood’s Superbowl Battle

There is just something about this Tebow Superbowl ad that seems to have really gotten under the skins of the pro-abortionist groups like Planned Parenthood and others.  I think its because they perceive that their whole agenda has been called out and they were left rocking backwards on their heels.  A lot of the pro-choice groups are crying foul that we have to be ‘exposed’ to something as damnable as a story about a mother who was advised to have an abortion… but chose not to… in “contravention doctors’ orders” (ala  Rachel Maddow).

Apparently, such divisive matters should not … continue reading...

Planned Parenthood And Their Hypocritical Concern for Haiti

I suppose many readers have heard the outcry against Planned Parenthood soliciting donations to restore ‘family planning’ services in Haiti.  I’ll leave others to reflect on the weirdness of this.  I’d like to focus briefly on the hypocrisy of it, for, after all, given Planned Parenthood’s real goals, their only complaint about what happened in Haiti can only be that more people didn’t die.

I have discussed the malthusian nature of abortion proponents at length on this blog so I won’t rehash it.  Essentially the point is this:  if you really believe that over population is the worst crisis … continue reading...

We have no rights, health care or otherwise, unless…

There are plenty of folks about insisting that there is a universal right to health care.  Obviously, health care is a hot topic right now, but the question of ‘rights’ permeates many other areas of our existence, so I thought I would address it.  I doubt I break any new ground, but it’s on my chest and I want it off.

We have no rights.  At least, not strictly speaking.  If there is a God, he has as much ‘right’ to destroy us as to sustain us.  If there isn’t a God, we have no more rights than an antelope … continue reading...

Missing Link, Scopes Monkey Trial, Science, Secularism, and Education

So they finally discovered the ‘missing link.’  Huh, I was under the impression that missing links posed no problems.  I guess after you think you’ve resolved the problem you can admit you had one.  I’ll leave it to others to decide if they really have resolved it.

The discovery of this ‘missing link’ comes as I’ve been ruminating on the role of secularism in our society, science, and education.  Secularists insist that those who want to involve themselves in goverment have to frame their desired policies, legislation, etc, in secular terms, or else be ‘unconstitutional.’  Secularists really believe that … continue reading...

Do your part for the economy: have fewer kids, abort if necessary

There are days when I wish I didn’t keep abreast of the news.  I learned today that Nancy Pelosi and the Dems are trying to pass funding for contraception in the stimulus bill that they are trying to get through Congress.  Now, in theory this money would only go towards ‘family planning,’ ie, contraceptions, not abortions.  However, we have to remember that for many people, abortion is a contraception.  The clearest example of this is the belief that just because you wipe out a human embryo in the first couple of days after conception, you haven’t actually aborted the child.… continue reading...

Planned Parenthood Admits on Video that Infanticide Continues

Over the last week or so I have had several opportunities to tell people about Barack Obama’s opposition to the Born Alive legislation in Illinois which would have required medical assistance to babies that survive the abortion procedure.  Without exception, each of these individuals was unaware of the issue.

It would be one thing if people were aware of this but dismissed it or factored it in- or even the unthinkable: they approve of it- but to not even be aware?  This I think is the fault of the ‘average American’ and his level of investigation into candidates and claims … continue reading...

Texas ‘Polygamists’ have rights too?

I am gently informed by Mormons that the Mormon-like polygamist community in Texas are not Mormons.  Read their arguments and my initial post on this subject here.

———-

So, a Texas court has ruled that the State acted inappropriately as it extricated more than 400 children from the Texas polygamist compound.  Here are two articles that discuss the matter:

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=080522213014.gw8y4mb6&show_article=1

That article contains this comment which is consistent with my earlier post, which takes issue with the hypocrisy involved:

“The Department conceded at the hearing that teenage pregnancy, by itself, is not a reason to remove children from continue reading...
