John Birch Society has Blood on Their Hands

I think anyone that knows me well will tell you that I am a history freak. I realize that not everyone shares that passion, but there are times that behoove all of us to be aware of things that have gone on in history. If you are pro life and if you are sickened by the perverse and horrific 1973 Supreme Court decision in the landmark case of Roe v. Wade....I ask you to consider the following: 

In the 1973 Supreme Court decision in the case of Roe v Wade, 7 robed men codified government sanctioned infanticide. The United States Supreme Court literally made up the right to chop up little unborn babies. They went so far as to tell us that they found this right in the Penumbras (Shadows) of the Constitutional text. What most people do not know, is that following this atrocious ruling, there was an enormous push from the states to get the United States Congress to propose a Right to Life amendment to the United States Constitution. The United States Congress of course... sat on those requests and did nothing. Many people are also unaware of the fact that at about the very same time, there was a very strong movement in the states to call for a Convention of States under Article V of the United States Constitution limited to a single issue, a Right to Life Amendment. Many people at the time realized that Congress did not have the political will to propose and send to the states such an amendment using their power under Article V of the U.S. Constitution.

The state led movement grew to fever pitch and by 1980 19 states had applied under Article V for such a Convention of States. You can see the list of states in this online Article V Library.

By 1978, the John Birch Society began fearmongering the state legislatures that had passed those Article V applications for a Convention of States limited to the Right to Life amendment. They doggedly spread their misinformation and fear in those 19 states to urge them to rescind their Article V applications….and by the early 90s the movement was dead.

Those are the indisputable facts. What I say next I readily admit is conjecture….but I ask you to think logically through this and come to your own conclusions. Bear in mind, the movement to achieve a COS specifically for a Right to Life amendment was at fever pitch in the early years following Roe. The abject perversion of the Constitution by the Supreme Court in order to create a right to butcher unborn children en utero had created tremendous will in the states to amend the Constitution either via the Congressional or the state led modes in Article V. It is clear that the Congress did not at that time or today have the political will to propose such an amendment. However, the framers knew what they were doing when they supplied the state led mode to amend the Constitution in Article V. The framers knew there would come a time when the people in the states understood the need to protect themselves and their progeny from a central government that would not restrict itself. Listen to the words of George Mason while he was advocating for the COS mode of amending the Constitution: 

“Amendments therefore will be necessary, and it will be better to provide for them, in an easy, regular and Constitutional way than to trust to chance and violence.  It would be improper to require the consent of the Natl. Legislature, because they may abuse their power, and refuse their consent on that very account.” – George Mason June 11, 1787 

The states were pushing hard for this…as evidenced by 19 states actually passing an Article V application for a Convention of States specifically limited to the Right to Life Amendment. Things being what they were, there is a good probability that the states would have achieved the 2/3rds requirement of applications to trigger a Convention of States. It is also a good probability….again, bearing in mind the climate in the states in the 70s following Roe, there is a very good probability that the 3/4ths requirement of 38 states would have been met to ratify a national Right to Life amendment. 

Please keep in mind…this is CRUCIAL for you to understand. If such an amendment had been ratified, the decision in Roe would have been automatically vacated and the unborn would have gained protection and the same Right to Life that you and I enjoy today simply because we have exited a birth canal. Abortion on demand would have ceased to exist in our country overnight upon ratification by the 38th state. 

My question for you after you ingest the facts I presented…and then after you think over my conjecture….my question to you is this: How many of the 60 million babies that have been butchered since the Roe v Wade decision would be alive today if the John Birch Society had not stopped this movement dead in it’s tracks in the 80s and early 90s? I think it a fair question to ask when you consider the climate in the states immediately following the Roe decision in 1973. 

None of us will ever know the answer to that question. But what we do know is that there was a strong possibility that the Right to Life amendment that would have protected those precious unborn children would have become the 28th amendment to the United States Constitution. 

The John Birch Society folks hate when I tell them that their pathetic organization has to bear some responsibility for some of the post Roe holocaust that might have been stopped by the states. They don’t like it when we tell their dirty little secret. They really should not get so worked up over me educating people on this....after all the current President of the John Birch Society, John McManus proudly tells audiences that they are responsible for stopping the Article V movement for the Right to Life amendment. You can watch and hear Mr. McManus in this video, gleefully proclaiming their victories here in his own words.

It is not hard to understand why Conservative icon William F. Buckley was so adamant about running this pathetic group out of the Conservative movement many years ago. 

Let me finish with one more piece of evidence of this group’s pathetic defense of the status quo and the Roe decision. In their zeal to make their misinformed case against the use of an Article V Convention of states they repeatedly write and speak utilizing the statements and the writings of former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Warren Burger. They use a letter written by him that said an Article V Convention of States is a bad or dangerous idea. But here’s another dirty little secret that they do not tell you.

What they do not tell you is who Warren Burger was…they don’t tell you that because they know it will turn your stomach and make you want to throw up…. they also know that you are smart enough to turn right around and ask them some tough questions that they do not want to have to answer. 

You see Warren Burger was the Chief Justice who presided over and was part of the 7 member majority in the infamous and atrocious Roe V Wade case that has given us 60 million butchered babies. Why don’t they tell you that? Is it because they figure you will put two and two together? That you will realize that logically, one of the most left wing and activist justices in our nation history would obviously NOT be supportive of any effort that would STRIP HIM OF HIS POWER! The guy in the middle below....that would be Chief Justice Burger....the anti Article V COS poster child of the pathetic JBS. Always remember....he was the Chief Justice that gave us 60 million dead babies.

The John Birch Society is the Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson of the Liberty Movement. They claim they want to stop the overreach of the Federal Government but behind the scenes they are doing everything in their power to maintain the status quo.

I stand by my statement….the John Birch Society is a pathetic fearmongering organization. I think their leadership has to bear some responsibility for what has continued to happen unabated since their activities in the late 70s and early 80s to fearmonger the states away from using the Constitutional tool specifically given to the states to correct course when the Constitution was twisted beyond recognition. In this instance we have the fruit of that inaction....60 million dead babies. To be clear...the Supreme Court handed down that decision not the JBS. But it was the JBS that was responsible for stopping the states from their attempt to immediately correct course for our nation. At that time...there was a good chance of success. I ask you to again, go back and watch their leader smugly and gleefully tell you how they stopped this. Then I want you to think about all those butchered babies that just might have been given the right to live.

The Birchers will maintain that they did this because they believe that a Convention is "dangerous".  But the fact remains that we will never know what would have been the result if the states had succeeded in getting into an amendments proposing convention. Their fears are irrational and based on bad history.

I submit that the political cult known as the John Birch Society has to bear some responsibility for the continued holocaust. I submit that their pathetic leadership has the blood of some of these babies on their hands.

Draw your own conclusions.
