“Immediatist vs Incrementalist” debate analysis: Epilogue

SHALL WE DO NOTHING- AHAIn the scheme of things, the “Immediatist vs Incrementalist” debate between AHA’s T. Russell Hunter and Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s Gregg Cunningham on April 25, 2015, was iconic. AHA’s immediatist philosophy was laid bare as contradictory, confused, and even nefarious.

Most extraordinary was that Hunter came so ill prepared, after beating his chest for months for prudentialists to “choose a man, and let him come down to fight me,” in the words of Goliath.

Witnessing social movement historian and master debater Cunningham methodically take down each of AHA’s talking points, only to receive such  flummoxed responses by Hunter, was a sight to behold. Cunningham was quick to challenge Hunter’s “conflated” and “binary” arguments, and with no keyboard to hide behind, Hunter’s half-baked theories, groundless accusations, and inaccurate portrayal of history were laid bare.

On one hand, a favorite punching bag of T. Russell Hunter is pro-life fundraising.

It was these contradictory positions Hunter had to balance in his April 25 debate against Center for Bio-Ethical Reform’s Gregg Cunningham.

Hunter contended (1:06:10 on the video) that one reason Christians aren’t actively involved in anti-abortion activism is because they donate money to pro-life organizations to do the work for them. (See also 1:14:24-1:16:26.)

“House of Cards” episode features photos of abortion victims

House_of_Cards_Season_1_PosterI’m suddenly hearing and reading about the television series, House of Cards, everywhere.

The show’s backdrop, quoting Wikipedia:

Set in present-day Washington, D.C., House of Cards is the story of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), a Democrat from South Carolina… and House Majority Whip who, after getting passed over for appointment as Secretary of State, decides to exact his revenge on those who betrayed him. The series also stars Robin Wright….

House of Cards is produced by Netflix, which releases an entire season all at once for viewing via its livestream service. Netflix dumped all 13 episodes of season two on February 14. This season Underwood has been appointed vice president.

  • Down on the Pharm says that by reducing human life to nothing more than a dollar figure, we are one step away from forced abortions – in America:

    The Congressional Budget Office has announced that if we pass Trent Franks’ bill H.R. 1797 restricting late term abortions, it could add $400 billion to the federal deficit. Philip Hodges at Godfather politics points out that this might be the first time that the politicians ever cared about the deficit, now that it can be used to push abortion.

Christian university retaliates against pro-life student for showing graphic reality of abortion

906450_847838719099_1057745883_o

Four months ago Diana Jimenez had an epiphany.

“I was pro-life but had no idea what an abortion looked like,” Diana told me today by phone. “Then I actually saw a video of an abortion, and my heart broke in pieces.”

A senior nursing student at Biola, a Christian university in La Mirada, California, Diana (pictured right) promptly launched a pro-life group and invited Gregg Cunningham, executive director of the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, to speak. After a great deal of energy was expended to publicize, only four students showed up.

Diana was compelled to attempt greater outreach, and the clock was ticking, with graduation just around the corner.

BREAKING: Johns Hopkins grants rights to student pro-life group

breakingnews2The Thomas More Law Center has announced that the Student Government Association Judiciary Committee of Johns Hopkins University issued a unanimous decision last night overturning an SGA ruling of March 24 that denied recognition to Voice for Life as an official student club of the school.

Wisconsin: Abortion planes incoming

The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform announced today it will fly 50′ x 100′ aerial billboards displaying photographs of first trimester, ten-week-old aborted babies over Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh, Racine and Waukesha, Wisconsin, from November 2 through Election Day, November 6:

Abortion chain claims it’s broke, cannot reimburse for failed lawsuit

Attorneys for a chain of three Michigan late-term abortion clinics are claiming their client cannot afford to pay $350,000 in attorney fees to lawyers who successfully defended Gregg Cunningham and the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform in Northland’s frivolous lawsuit against them.

In 2011 Northland Family Planning Centers sued CBR for posting what it called “the most shocking 4-minute abortion debate you will ever see,” which juxtaposed a video produced by Northland touting “the goodness” of abortion with cuts showing the reality of abortion.

Northland claimed copyright infringement, and CBR counterclaimed protection under the Fair Use trademark law.

Six weeks ago Judge James Selna of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California dismissed Northland’s lawsuit on a Motion for Summary Judgment, meaning he thought Northland’s case was too weak to even bring to trial.

Because Northland’s case was deemed frivolous, attorneys at the American Freedom Law Center, which represented CBR, filed a petition for award of its fees of $350,000.
