NEWS BRIEF: "Influential GOP Sen. Frist Supports Stem-Cell Research", Politics and Policy Section, by Laurie McGinley, Staff Reporter, Wall Street Journal, Wednesday, July 18, 2001, p. A20.
"WASHINGTON -- As the furor over embryonic stem cells reaches a fever pitch, Sen. Bill Frist, an influential presidential adviser on health issues, is coming down in favor of funding the research -- within strict scientific and ethical limits."
Let us stop right here, for this statement epitomizes the greatest propaganda ploy possible when someone is attempting to persuade public opinion on a controversial subject, especially when that subject tugs on the heartstrings of a person's emotion. This entire abomination is being sold to the American people on the same basis as was Abortion in the late 1960's and early 1970's, and the eventual results will be the same: unrestricted Stem Cell Research for whatever reason and under whatever circumstances the medical researchers at their individual facilities so desire.
Before we study the fact that this struggle is being fought along the classic lines of the Dialectic Process known as the Six-Step Attitudinal Change Plan, let us look at the words, "strict ... ethical limits". Which "ethical" source have the proponents consulted before deciding to continue with the murder of babies in this Stem-Cell Research? Most people will read the word "ethical" and conclude that these researchers checked a highly placed religious source on this matter, most likely the Bible or a clergy of either the Protestant or Roman Catholic persuasion. The fact of the matter, the only "ethical" source consulted on this matter is the same non-Christian sources that gave their opinion during the Abortion debate -- the occult Illuminati who have run this country for most of our history dating back to 1776. [Seminar 2, America Determines The Flow of History ]
This occult Illuminati is also aided and abetted by the Liberal Christian Protestant movement, which has now sold its soul in exchange for huge mega-churches and the acclaim of men. During the debate on Abortion, proponents zeroed in on the issue as to when human life begins. They vigorously argue that human life does not begin at conception -- when the male sperm enters the female egg to produce that first tiny cell. In fact, they deliberately cloud the issue still further when they say that no one can be sure exactly when human life does begin. Ominously, some New Age magazines have been arguing for some time now that a human being can not be defined as such until well after they are born! Listen:
"I believe that the meaning of life is cognition and self-awareness, not merely visceral survival", states Fred Plum, neurologist in chief at Cornell University Medical College -- New York Hospital." [Omni Magazine Last Rights , by Michael Henricott, September, 1987, p. 59+]. This definition means that society must wait for a time after a child is born to determine whether that child is truly a human being meriting the protection of society. [NOTE: If you are spiritually discerning, you can hear the approaching hoofbeats of the next planned Holocaust].
Conversely, Dr. Plum's definition means that society can determine when a formerly fully functioning person has suffered degeneration to the point where they are no longer "cognitive", no long possessing "self-awareness". Later, this article calls such a person " 'lost souls' who linger mindlessly in what are called 'persistent vegetative states'. " [Ibid; Emphasis added] Thus, the American medical industry has the excuse to "terminate" the life of anyone not meeting this criteria.
By this definition, American scientists are no longer concerned solely with the life and well-being of their patients; rather, they have slipped into a Neo-Nazi Biomedical Vision that would make Adolf Hitler mightily pleased! Dr. Wolf Wolfensberger, an advocate for the disabled and handicapped working at Syracuse University, has written a little book he cannot get published, even though he is an often-published author. Dr. Wolfensberger strongly states that American doctors and nurses already have adopted this Neo-Nazi Biomedical Vision and are already killing more patients per year through a misuse of medical treatment than the Nazis similarly killed the entire 12-year period under Hitler. The name of this book is "The New Genocide of Handicapped and Afflicted People"; you would be well advised to read this book if you have any loved one who is handicapped or elderly or who suffers from a long-term medical problem. The American Medical Industry has already fallen under this Neo-Nazi Vision.
But, why should we be surprised, for the New Age Movement, which is spearheading the change of attitudes and values amongst the general population in order that Antichrist can arise, is simply Nazism revived [Read NEWS1004 for full details].
THE HOLY BIBLE SPEAKS OUT AS TO WHEN HUMAN LIFE BEGINS
Let us return to our discussion on Stem-Cell Research, as this controversial subject involves life at the beginning. When does human life begin? Let us take a few moments to consult the only ethical "system" that counts in time and eternity, the Holy Bible. We shall make a momentous discovery: the Bible states that human life begins at conception !
Psalm 51:5 -- "Behold, I was brought forth in a state of iniquity; my mother was sinful who conceived me and I too am sinful." [King David, lamenting his sin with Bathsheba]. Thus, we see that sin in a person is present at the moment of conception, which is the reason Jesus Christ was miraculously conceived without the male sperm, so that He would not possess inherent sin! If sin is present at conception, you know the human being is also created at the moment of conception.
Matthew 1:18-20 -- "When His [Jesus'] mother Mary had been promised in marriage to Joseph, she was found to be pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit ... an angel of the Lord appeared to him [Joseph] in a dream, saying, 'Joseph, descendant of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit." [Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]
When was Jesus present in Mary's womb? He was present at the moment of conception.
Judges 13:3 -- "And the angel of the LORD appeared unto the woman, and said unto her, Behold now, thou art barren, and bearest not: but thou shalt conceive, and bear a son." When was Samson present in the womb of his Mother, Manoah? At conception.
Isaiah 7:14 -- "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." Again, Messiah was present within the virgin's womb at the moment of conception.
Luke 1:31 -- "And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS."
Hebrews 11:11 -- "Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised." Isaac was present in his mother's womb at the moment of conception.
As you can see, the Bible clearly teaches that a person is present in the womb the moment of conception. In God's eyes, there is no such thing as a period when that little one-celled baby is non-human. There is never a time when that little baby was a non-human embryo. To kill a one-celled baby is murder, no matter how the human egg is fertilized by the sperm, no matter whether the conception occurs within a womb or in a test tube.
"STRICT GUIDELINES" PROPOSED TO PROTECT AGAINST ABUSE OR WIDE USE
With this concept firmly in our mind, let us continue with our feature
"Sen. Frist, a transplant surgeon who has remained publicly silent on the issue, yesterday laid out his views in a 45-minute interview in his office at the U.S. Capitol. His detailed 10-point plan would limit the number of embryo cell lines to be used, require rigorous informed-consent procedures and outlaw the creation of embryos for research, whether publicly or privately funded ... federal funds could be used only for stem cells derived from embryos left over from in-vitro fertilization procedures, that otherwise would be discarded ... His plan would limit the number of cell lines that federally funded scientists could work on ... thus limiting the lines to limit the number of embryos needed to establish them." [Ibid.]
President Bush is squarely pinned to the public opinion wall right now by this issue. He knows his Conservative Christian constituency is watching carefully to see how he will rule. How can he act in such a way as to allow this morally heinous industry to move forward, and yet not lose his conservative constituency?
The most probable answer would be to deceive his Conservative Christian constituency into thinking he had ruled their way by opening the door to Stem-Cell Research to so tiny a crack that most people would never think it could really ever become a big deal. Of course, the President knows fully well that, once the door prohibiting the terrible practice is opened just a tiny crack, that door can be consistently pushed all the way open over a period of time, using little baby steps that no one hardly notices.
This apparently is exactly what is transpiring now, with Senator Frist of Tennessee.
You need to know that this scenario is exactly how Christians lost the battle
against Abortion. But, before we get that far in our study, let us see the
plan by which Senator Frist and President Bush are operating. Once you
know what they are doing, you will the more easily be able to warn others and to
possibly act in such a manner as to stop this Stem-Cell Research
Whenever the Illuminati wants to change the values and attitudes of the people toward a particular subject the masses believe is heinous, they begin to institute a six-step plan that will gradually, almost invisibly change people's values and attitudes. Once a person has fallen victim to this gradual plan, they will believe they arrived at this new attitude totally on their own, and will be most resistant to any suggestion that they had been manipulated.
This is the Plan by which values and attitudes of an entire population can be altered, almost invisibly:
Step 1. Some practice so offensive that it can scarcely be discussed in public is advocated by a RESPECTED expert in a RESPECTED forum.
Step 2. At first, the public is shocked, then outraged.
Step 3. But, the VERY FACT that such a thing could be publicly debated becomes the SUBJECT
of the debate.
Step 4. In the process, sheer repetition of the shocking subject under discussion gradually dulling its effect.
Step 5. People then are no longer shocked by the subject.
Step 6. No longer outraged, people begin to argue for positions to moderate the extreme; or, they accept the premise, challenging, instead, the means to ACHIEVE it.
Stem-Cell Research has been an issue on the back-burner for almost a decade now. During the Clinton Administration, this issue was gradually working its way through Steps 1-4, with the assistance of the Mass Media, to the point now where the public is not shocked by the subject anymore. Now, a RESPECTED expert [Senator First of Tennessee, a "transplant surgeon"], steps forward to present a plan that would allow this satanic research to go forward, but under the strictest of "ethical" guidelines. Senator Frist is speaking from a RESPECTED forum, the United States Senate; and, the undiscerning American will believe that, if anyone would be in a position to know if Stem-Cell Research should go forward, and under what conditions, a transplant surgeon should be the man!
ADOLF HITLER'S "STRICT GUIDELINES" TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT
Before any of you fall for this "strict guideline" nonsense, you should know that this lie has been told by every single leader advocating morally repugnant concepts, including Adolf Hitler.
When Adolf Hitler was silently beginning to kill people, and conditioning the public to accept more, he always promised to institute "strict guidelines" to protect the innocent! Historian Robert Jay Lifton captures this fact most succinctly in his monumental book, The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide . Listen:
"Prior to Auschwitz and the other death camps, the Nazis established a policy of direct medical killing: that is, killing arranged within medical channels, by means of medical decisions, and carried out by doctors and their assistants. The Nazis called this program 'euthanasia' ... this term camouflaged mass murder ..." [P. 21, Introduction to Part I]
Make no mistake about this Stem-Cell Research: when an embryo [tiny human baby] is killed for "research" a medical killing just occurred. Time will prove that there is not one whit of difference between Stem-Cell Medical Killing and the Nazi Doctor Medical Killing that led directly to the Holocaust gas chambers and fire pits that ultimately consumed 20 million people.
Lifton continues reporting about Hitler's plan for euthanasia. To arrive at human euthanasia, Hitler first chose the avenue of forced sterilization. In its beginning stages, Hitler set up "strict guidelines" to prevent "abuses". Listen:
"Special 'Hereditary Health Courts' were set up to make decisions on sterilization ... there were also appeals courts, which made final decisions in contested cases and on which some of the regime's most recognized medical leaders served." [P. 25] This type of person sounds like a Senator Frist, "transplant surgeon", does it not?
Very soon, within a matter of a few years, the Nazi vision of medicine began to make itself known. "A change in the attitude of each and every doctor and a spiritual and mental regeneration of the entire medical profession" was the goal. [P. 33]
The final step was actual killing --human euthanasia -- again within "strict" guidelines. Lifton reports:
Nazi doctors set up "a carefully controlled juridical process, with applications for killing evaluated by a three-person panel (a general physician, a psychiatrist, and a lawyer) ... such a policy of killing was compassionate and consistent with medical ethics."
Did you catch that last statement? Human Euthanasia was considered "compassionate" and "consistent with medical ethics". You can be assured that the Nazis consulted the same type of "medical ethicists" as are the current doctors in this Stem Cell Research!
THE NETHERLANDS' "STRICT GUIDELINES"
"... despite that courageous model of Dutch doctors during the Nazi occupation, doctors in the Netherlands today are engaged in terminating patients. Moreover, many ignore the guidelines that were set when physicians were given the power to kill: (1) The patient must repeatedly, voluntarily ask for death; (2) The patient's suffering must be unbearable without hope of improvement; (3) At least one other doctor must be consulted." ["Death In The Netherlands: Dutch Doctors Kill Defective Children With Impunity", by Nat Hentoff, The Village Voice, February 18, 1997, p. 20.]
Aren't these "guidelines" the same ones being proposed today in this country by advocates of Adult Euthanasia? Advocates are proposing that laws be enacted which will set these same "guidelines", telling us that such laws will protect the innocent, will stop doctors from killing patients without their approval or knowledge. Yet, here in the Netherlands, we see that such laws have not, and are not, preventing doctors from killing patients at will.
This Village Voice then laments: "
"For Dutch viewers, I quoted Dr. Herbert Hendin, whose most recent book is "Seduced By Death: Doctors, Patients, and the Dutch Cure" (Norton). Testifying before a congressional subcommittee, Hendin illuminated the irreversible Dutch slippery slope that American supporters of assisted suicide would wish upon us: 'The Netherlands has moved from assisted suicide to euthanasia; from euthanasia for people who are terminally ill to euthanasia for those who are chronically ill; from euthanasia for physical illness to euthanasia for psychological distress; and from voluntary euthanasia to involuntary euthanasia (called in the Netherlands termination of the patient without explicit request)' " [NOTE: The Netherlands earlier this year took the final step to legalize human euthanasia].
This is the slippery moral slope down which the Netherlands has fallen, and down which America is falling, just a short distance behind. Dr. Wolfensberger says that American doctors and nurses have already slipped down this slippery slope but just have not the political backing to go public with their Bio-Medical Vision -- YET!
Now, let us return to this Village Voice article. "I then asked the Dutch TV interviewer how the Dutch people can justify not only the 'quality of life' killing of adults, which brings back memories of the Nazi occupiers -- but also the liquidating of 'defective' children. An accounting of the euthanizing of children in the Netherlands comes from Dr. Richard Fenigsen, a cardiologist in the Netherlands. I got to know him about eight years ago, and he predicted that Dutch euthanasia would go inexorably out of control because there are no truly binding limits once society gives doctors the power to kill."
Isn't this exactly what we Fundamental, Bible-believing Christians have been saying all this time? Once you give one human being the power to kill another human being, he will do so with ever increasing frequency and with ever increasing boldness, his professional medical training notwithstanding. Abortion foes have long predicted that, once you cheapen life at the beginning of life's spectrum through abortion, you will cheapen it at the end of life through euthanasia. Of course, this premise irrevocably implies that, if both ends of life are cheapened to the point of killing those deemed 'unworthy', then no person at any part in the middle years will be safe. Even though Euthanasia advocates deny most vehemently that this scenario is possible, the situation in the Netherlands shows that this scenario of progression does occur, inevitably.
American doctors have already been given permission to kill in the following ways, all with supposedly "strict" guidelines: Abortion, Infanticide, Partial Birth Abortion, Adult Euthanasia. Are we about to add Stem-Cell Research to this list?
CREATING A CULTURE OF DEATH THROUGH EUTHANASIA
This Village Voice article then continues, examining how the pervasiveness of Adult Euthanasia has created a "culture of death" in the Dutch society. "
"Eight years ago, Dr. Fenigsen told me of elderly people in the Netherlands who were afraid to go to the hospital. They didn't want to die, and they feared that a doctor, feeling compassionate about these old folk's frailness, would decide to euthanize them. And they knew of others to whom that had actually happened. A 1995 study of euthanasia in the Netherlands disclosed that 23 percent of the doctors interviewed reported that they had euthanized a patient without his or her explicit request. Furthermore, at least half of Dutch physicians involved made the initial suggestion that death should be embraced. That is, they suggested euthanasia to patients." [Emphasis mine]
Can you believe that a doctor could rationalize their feelings and mental state in such a way as to actually feel "compassionate" as they prepared to kill a patient without that patient's approval? Yet, history records that this is precisely the attitude of German doctors and soldiers who operated the Death Camps of the Nazis.
This "Culture of Death" occurs soon after a society gives any human the power to kill any other human, under whatever circumstances. As soon as some killing begins, the demonic host then begins to flow through that society, causing many other people to begin to embrace that love of death. This action allows the killing to go forward with ever increasing regularity and with greater severity. Symbols of death begin to appear throughout society, most notibly in the Arts and Entertainment fields, and in the popular teen culture. Symbols like skulls and crossbones, skeletons, demonic looking faces, love of black, multiple body piercings, and satanic based drawings of all sorts. Dr. Wolfensberger notes that, when you sees these symbols of death, you can know for certain that silent killing of "devalued" persons is already occurring.
ABORTION -- "STRICT GUIDELINES"
Abortion -- American society is clearly in Step 6 here, as 1.5 million preborn babies are murdered in the womb annually. Remember how we lost this war? We lost it in state legislatures when our side compromised to legally allow abortions ONLY in limited instances, narrowly prescribed instances, where the life of the mother might be in danger, or when the conception was a result of rape or incest. As "noble" as this compromise might have appeared to our ignorant legislators, it opened the door to this forbidden practice just a tiny crack. Soon, the Supreme Court kicked it wide open with Roe vs Wade, and now abortion is practiced in all three trimesters of pregnancy.
We must never compromise; it opens the door to delayed defeat.
Now, you can truly see this "slippery slope" called Stem-Cell research, and it is being furthered by the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan. After a period of bitter battling [Step 4], the door is opened just a crack [Steps 5-6], allowing the objectionable practice to occur under "severe" or "strict" guidelines. Advocates know that, if they can force the door open just a crack, they will very soon be able to force it open completely. This Plan worked to perfection in the case of Abortion, and now it is working to perfection in Adult Euthanasia, and is now being used in Stem-Cell Research.
THE END OF STEP #4 -- THE CONSTANT BATTLING
President Bush is hiding behind the fig leave of the Six Step Attitudinal Change Plan, whereby a RESPECTED expert speaking from a RESPECTED forum, proposes an end to the battling of Step #4. He proposes to allow the morally repugnant Stem Cell Research to continue, but only with "Strict Guidelines". Such hogwash! History has repeatedly proven this ploy to open the door to the objectionable practice always works: it always lets the door open just a crack, so that the formerly hotly debated issue goes to the back burner, out of public sight. Then, little by little, that door is silently opened wider and wider, until it is being operated as completely wide-open as its proponents envisioned originally.
This is exactly what is occurring in our Daily News today. We encourage you to not be deceived on this issue. As I stated above, the ultimate objective is to operate this heinous process well beyond the currently proposed "strict guidelines". What is the ultimate limit the proponents of Stem Cell Research have in mind? As in the common saying amongst homicide detectives, "follow the money trail".
THE MONEY TRAIL EVOLVING FROM STEM CELL RESEARCH
At its foundation, Stem Cell Research creates tiny embryos outside the womb, right now in a test-tube environment. But, what might the future hold? Does a huge financial market exist that would require the capability to create live human babies at will? Consider this news story:
NEWS BRIEF: "Fetuses will be grown to harvest, say experts: Ethicist sees development in 10 years," The Sun Chronicle, Monday, October 20, 1997, p. 5.
"LONDON (AP) -- Partial human fetuses will be grown to harvest organs for transplants in the next decade, and government oversight is urgently needed to prevent abuses, an ethics expert said Sunday. Dr. Patrick Dixon predicted that it is only a matter of time before cloning technology is used to create partial fetuses with missing heads, arms or legs 'as organ factories for tomorrow's people'. Dixon, author of The Genetic Revolution, made his prediction following a report in The Sunday Times over the weekend that British scientists have created a frog embryo without a head."
"Scientists believe the technique used to create a headless frog can be adapted to grow human organs such as hearts, kidneys and livers in an artificial womb ... it is only a matter of time -- five to 10 years -- before scientists grow partial fetuses to obtain human organs."
Organs for human transplant are in mighty short supply right now, and can cost up to $50,000 each, depending upon the human organ required. A human body that has chemicals in it worth less than $10 can potentially reap a "harvest" of over a quarter million dollars if its organs are sold separately! More than 10 years ago, the flagship magazine of the Illuminist plan for the world, Omni Magazine , ran an article entitled, "Last Rights", [September, 1987, p. 59+, by Michael Henricott] in which it boldly called for the deliberate harvesting of human bodies for their organs. Listen:
"On his back, eyes shut, breathing rhythmically, R.H. six three, 170 pounds, is a handsome man. Yet even as one admires the strong lines of his body, surgeons with scalpels incise the skin and muscle of his chest and abdomen with long, sure strokes. Using a small electric saw, they cleave the sternum as easily as if it were made of balsa. There is surprisingly little blood, but there's a certain amount of dismay in the operating room (O.R.) when as many as eight doctors have their hands and arms inside the cadaver, working quickly to disconnect the organs from their many vessels.
"As soon as each organ comes out, it is carefully packed in an Igloo Playmate full of dry ice and rushed to a waiting helicopter for delivery to a distant transplant team. Finally, after the major organs are removed, a blond-haired surgeon from New York's Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, his eyes rimmed by dark circles, tells the anesthetist to disconnect the I.V.'s and turn off the respirator."
This victim was delivered to the hospital "brain dead", a victim of an accident. He never recovered, because he was "volunteered" to become an organ donor. If you currently have a donor card, you might want to think again, for those cards give a hospital permission to "harvest" your organs, especially if the hospital personnel cannot immediately locate your relatives. Listen to this Omni Magazine article:
" 'Many people are afraid the doctors are going to grab their kidneys before they're dead', says Montefiore's Tellis. But we shouldn't worry. 'In fact, donor cards are your best insurance. If you come into the hospital seriously injured and your survival's in grave doubt, they'll probably give you the very best attention. For your organ's sake'."
The author of this Omni Magazine article then asks one of the young researchers when life begins.
"So the question of death ultimately becomes the question of what is life. After almost 20 years of research on death, Korein is more excited these days about life. The process of being born is, in a sense, just the opposite of dying. When does the human being begin? At fertilization? When it's an embryo? There's a constructive phase between 10 and 20 weeks of fetal life when the neurons are being produced and organized. The fetus moves as early as eight weeks, Korein says, but that's spinal cord activity, a vegetative function. Around 20 to 24 weeks the cerebrum starts to show signs of electrical and synaptic activity. 'Then,' he says, 'you could say it's the earliest possibility of cerebral mental life. It hasn't the ability to work like a normal three-day-old baby, but the pieces are in place, starting to grow and connect. That's the beginning of a person's life -- 'brain life'." [Ibid.]
So, you can see, the Illuminists have redefined the beginning of life to brain activity. Therefore, they can kill an "embryo" within the 20 week period and claim they are not killing a human being.
Not only is America continuing to slide down this "slippery slope", but the end result will be a huge money-making business in growing "fetuses" for use in organ donation as well as for various types of tissue.
At this moment, I can hear Jesus' words of judgment ringing in my ears: "Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." [Revelation 18:2]
America has become the "habitation" or resort of demons, and the holding cage
of every bird and animal Satanists use in their ceremonies. Her sins have
piled high to heaven, and the time has come for God to call her sins up to His
remembrance for judgment. The time of the end is truly drawing
Are you spiritually ready? Is your family? Are you adequately protecting your loved ones? This is the reason for this ministry, to enable you to first understand the peril facing you, and then help you develop strategies to warn and protect your loved ones. Once you have been thoroughly trained, you can also use your knowledge as a means to open the door of discussion with an unsaved person. I have been able to use it many times, and have seen people come to Jesus Christ as a result. These perilous times are also a time when we can reach many souls for Jesus Christ, making an eternal difference.
If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, but have been very lukewarm in your spiritual walk with Him, you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. He will instantly forgive you, and fill your heart with the joy of the Holy Spirit. Then, you need to begin a daily walk of prayer and personal Bible Study.
If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, but have come to realize His reality and the approaching End of the Age, and want to accept His FREE Gift of Eternal Life, you can also do so now, in the privacy of your home. Once you accept Him as Savior, you are spiritually Born Again, and are as assured of Heaven as if you were already there. Then, you can rest assured that the Kingdom of Antichrist will not touch you spiritually.
If you would like to become Born Again, turn to our Salvation Page now.
We hope you have been blessed by this ministry, which seeks to educate and warn people, so that they can see the coming New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- in their daily news.
