Introduction: Are abortions serious
enough to justify effective actions to prevent hundreds of them immediately?
Be careful how you answer, because so far, the only way to save hundreds,
arguably thousands of unborn lives, now, has been to destroy abortion
buildings or kill abortionists. ("Sidewalk Counselors" likewise
save hundreds of lives, over the years, but not immediately. Does it matter
whether lives are saved "now"? Well, it does to the million and
a half slain every year!) "NO!" shout 99.99% of Americans, and
the loudest are "prolife" leaders. "Abortion is not that
The Prayer & Action News has hosted Bible discussion
of this subject since 1993. The debate has been wide open, with those for
and against eloquently offering their arguments. Those for force have produced
the overwhelming preponderance of articles and books full of Scriptures
and reasoning; by contrast, those against produce media sound bites. I
have never seen a book, or even something so lengthy as an article, from
those opposed to force, that addresses the Scripture studies published by
those who favor it.
But I have actively solicited opposing views. When U.S.
Marshals were posted 24 hours a day in the Planned Parenthood parking lot,
and the Des Moines Register actually reported it was because of ME, and
not even that I myself might take action but that someone might read my
magazine and take action(!), I begged for opposing views in
an "Offer to All Abortionists"
and sent copies to Planned Parenthood of Greater Iowa, local U.S. Marshall
leader Phyllis Henry, Janet Reno who was heavily investigating anti-abortion
violence, and Bill Clinton. Since then I've heard scattered reports that
abortionists quite far away have read or at least publicly quoted the P&A!
So I know they know about this offer. But no one has ever responded!
I even challenged them by putting a countdown banner at
the bottom of our front page. By our April/C/1995 AD issue it said this:
"268 incredible days since U.S. Marshals were posted 7/29/1994 in the
PP parking lot 12 hours a day to stop the P&A's threatening word processor.
(They camped 24 hours a day until somewhere around Halloween.) 251 days
since our 8/15/1994 invitation to any abortionist in America willing to
refute, in free P&A space, the P&A's threatening distortions. [as
of 4/20/95] My last countdown banner was June 1996 AD: 709 days, 692 days,
and an abortionist said he would respond if we sent him back issues so he
would know what to respond to. We sent the back issues. He never responded.
I'm serious. If you do not agree with us, I am very anxious
to know why, and I will give you the most fair forum you could possibly
imagine, whose readers will be the very people you are most concerned about.
If I thought waving a red flag would get you to engage, I'd wave it. Meanwhile
all I can tell you is that my primary reason for wanting to hear from the
opposition is for the safety of my own soul: I want to test the accuracy
of my position against every conceivable challenge. I don't want to arrive
on Judgment Day only to discover facts, arguments, or Scriptures I had overlooked.
But every day that goes by with no response reinforces my confidence in
the irrefutability of my positions.
"The suppression of evidence ought
always to be taken for the strongest evidence."
---(From the John Peter Zenger trial,
which established Freedom of the Press in America. The Governor of New York,
appointed by the English King, (before the Revolution), accused a newspaper
of libel for criticizing the governor. The newspaper said, but the accusations
are true. The governor said, it doesn't matter whether it was true. It was
libel. The issue before the jury was whether telling the truth is a crime,
if the truth is unpleasant. Today prolife leaders and Christian politicians,
if not pastors, say "it doesn't matter whether it is Biblical! It is
unacceptable! It is unacceptable, meaning it is controversial! It is controversial,
meaning the local Planned Barrenhood butcher will get a full page in the
newspaper to call us names.)
Now here are a few of the dozens of debates and analysis
from back issues of the Prayer & Action News:

<> How Iowa Lawmakers Can Stop Abortion Iowa's "necessity defense"
says any action that saves someone from serious injury is not against the
law. If it is amended so the seriousness of the injury is treated as a "fact
issue", to be decided by the jury, then people who block abortion doors
would be able to say abortion is a "serious injury" and juries
would decide if it is, instead of judges.
Explanation/Endorsement of Joe Scheidler,
Pro Life Action League, Chicago, Defendant in the 16-year-long "NOW
vs. Scheidler" case which is now before the U.S. Supreme Court:
"There's a private swimming pool not far from our
office with a 'no trespassing' sign on it. But if I saw a toddler thrashing
around in the water, I'd jump the fence and try to save him. That's the
necessity defense. It sets aside the letter of the law for the spirit of
the law. In any other situation besides abortion, the necessity of trespassing
to save lives would be accepted in a flash. But the so called 'right to
privacy' has blinded our judges. But if you present the facts of the humanity
of a child to a jury, they are much more likely to accept the reality of
"The Necessity defense was our legal ace in the hole
from the earliest days of clinic blockades. One of the major reasons we
allowed ourselves to be arrested was to try the necessity defense. It is
still real law, which presents a fact issue to the juries. Anything that
makes that clear will be a powerful tool.
"We should have kept our focus on this defense, but
we haven't, so today most lawyers laugh if you bring it up. But a lot of
water has gone over the dam since then, from cloning to the sale of baby
body parts. The public may be ready to see the defense tried now. Public
education on the child's humanity is crucial. That is why this initiative
to spell out the necessity defense is valuable even before it is passed.
It won't work if you don't try, and I am willing to help." (Cont'd
inside) (Begins with a one-minute TV Ad script summarizing the issue)
Additional endorsements: "If
this passes, it could facilitate the closing of every abortion clinic in
Iowa." Chuck Hurley, head of Iowa Family Policy
Center (Iowa branch of Dobson's Focus on the Family), attorney, former head
of the Iowa House Judiciary Committee. (But he doesn't think it would pass,
and I agree that at present, I see no spark plug in the legislature capable
of igniting public interest.) "That
sounds like something you would come up with!"

<> Stenberg v. Carhart, Champion of Partial Birth
This is the decision that overturned the Partial Birth
Bans of 30 states! With translation by Uncle Ed. Read for yourself the grisly
descriptions of what mothers must retain the "constitutional right"
to do, in order to preserve their "dignity". Read with what twisted
logic the Court says, on the one hand, that states still have a "legitimate
interest" in preserving the lives of babies old enough to live outside
the womb (the age of "viability") and then on the other hand prevents
the states from banning the most barbaric of all abortions, the abortion
method used to grab for Death every last unborn baby, right up until the
very day of natural birth!
Study Shows Link Between Mental Health Problems and Abortion August 16, 2002 (CNSNews.com) - Women who
have abortions have a much higher risk for developing psychiatric problems
(in addition to the one that made abortion seem like a legitimate "choice")
in the months following the procedure than those who give birth, according
to a study in the American Journal for Orthopsychiatry
The Brockhoeft Report.
Martin Haskill operated an abortion "clinic" in Cincinnati, Ohio
where he pioneered the most barbaric of all abortion methods: the "partial
birth" abortion, popularly known through the "scissors in the
baby's brain" diagrams. Johnny Brockhoeft burned it down, 15 edge-of-your-seat chapters. Follow him as love and reason cut
off all escape: share his dread as he faces the actions they require. Also:
gripping fiction and American history. "The
Brockhoeft Report" is a collection of about 15 chapters which Johnny
wrote for the Prayer & Action News during 15 months between 1993 and
1995, during which time Shelley Shannon shot George Tiller's arms, and Paul
Hill shot and killed killer John Britton. Johnny's writing is as eloquent
as Martin Haskill's murders are barbaric. He fully explains what brought
him to the place, mentally and spiritually, where he felt compelled to burn
down Haskill's abomination. This book is required reading for anyone inclined
to criticize those who have used force to prevent abortion. Before you think
you can dismiss, with a single sentence, any spiritual value to effective
efforts to save lives, you need to face Johnny's reasoning and see where
you can find anything wrong with it. (The name "The Brockhoeft Report"
is reminiscent of a prime time network news show of the same name, with
a different spelling, during the '60's.)
I do not ADVOCATE "violence"
(to prevent abortion). Never have.
Position statement of Dave Leach, Candidate
Intro: The statements of OTHERS who have been associated
with prolife violence: Johnny Brockhoeft, Jonathan O'Toole
A. Understanding "violence".
B. "Advocating" and "justifying" (or
"refusing to condemn"). The endorsement of this nonviolent approach,
by a man who once used violence.
C. "I don't want
anyone to use force to stop abortion, because I need the help of anyone
that willing to sacrificially help the unborn, to pass an Iowa law that
will stop ALL abortions." But he does not take
life seriously who condemns physically stopping the most brutal, violent
murder in America today! He cares not about violence who sees it not in
tearing unborn babies limb from limb but only in physically stopping it!
D. Why this plan for stopping abortion, which requires
public understanding of the Necessity Defense, will be threatened if prolifers
continue accusing, of being lawbreakers, those who have forcibly prevented
abortion, as if the Necessity Defense were not the Law of the Land.

as personal threats. When Regina called the Supreme Court Clerk of
Court office, to inquire about the highly unusual 60-day delays, the clerk
seemed familiar with her case, which is in itself highly unusual. The delays
occurred during the period the Court was considering another prolife case,
which it eventually heard. The other case was far narrower in its scope,
involving only picketting, while our case went to the heart of the mistakes
of Roe v. Wade. Regina concludes from all this that the Justice Department

The Army of God Manual
The anonymously published book seized from witnesses
by the Virginia Grand Jury for a solid year, until the Prayer & Action
News reprinted it, giving the jury someone to sue if they thought they had
a case against its publication. The manual has maybe a thousandth of the
ballistics knowledge available from U.S. Army books sold by the millions
to army surplus stores, but Grand Juries aren't trying to intimidate the
U.S. Army. For the text of this classic, and several articles by and for
those who have used it, check out www.ArmyOfGod.com. (You will be leaving this
website, so don't forget your way back!)
SUMMARY: You don't "take a stand" for The Truth by sticking
to comfortable truths. And to the extent you don't take a
stand for The Truth, your own family has no reason to trust
you. If you are ready to "take a stand", stick up for truths
which infuriate liars so much that they will persecute you
for proclaiming them. Such as certain truths about the
seriousness of abortion. If you aren't "controversial", then
by definition, you aren't "taking a stand" for The Truth. By
definition, you are actually "ashamed" of The Truth. Don't
make The Truth ashamed of YOU! John 14:6, Mark 8:34-38
This web site is part
of Uncle Ed.'s search for truth. God didn't make any man able to find the
truth by himself. Proverbs 15:22 says only in a "multitude of counsellors"
are purposes established. And counsel can come from anybody: 2 Chronicles
35:20-24 says God can speak even through your generation's representative
of Antichrist! (Isaiah 30 for perspective.)
So if you see errors
here, and you don't warn poor Uncle Ed.,, their continued presence here
will be your fault! (Ezekiel 3:18-20) (If you don't want your email address posted when we post your
