Chicago Pro-Life Movement and Civil Disobedience

Should we engage in Civil Disobedience to stop abortion? This is the hot topic of debate with in the Pro-Life movement in Chicago. Some Pro-Lifers believe only a mass non-violent civil disobedience movement can dislodge the profitable abortion industry from Chicago, The City by the Lake. Others believe that we should not break the law under any circumstances, because the Federal government has passed a law (Face Act) that turns simple acts of disobedience (eg. stepping into the parking lot of an abortion clinic) into a federal crime, with heavy fines and long prison sentences. This could also put some Pro-Lifers, that have nothing to do with any civil disobedience, at risk, because the Federal government believes, or promotes, that the Pro-Life movement and Pro-Lifers are equivalent to organized crime and crime bosses like John ("The Teflon Don" as he is known in New York) Gotti. The Federal government has actually prosecuted some Pro-Lifers under the Rico Act which was passed to stop organized crime! The Chicago based Infants Rights Campaign (IRC), an organization working to help women with unplanned pregnancies and lower the number of abortions in Chicago, believes that peaceful non-violent protest coupled with non-violent civil disobedience, is the best way to dramatically lower the number of abortions in Chicago and help as many women as possible to choose life. Every day in the United States, 100,000 women make the decision to kill their own baby, many against their will, because they get no support from husbands, boyfriends, family and friends. Each one of these unfortunate women are wounded by this crime in one way or the other. Most regret their actions, suffer from depression, drug and alcohol abuse, have a greater risk of breast cancer, can become sterile as a result of having an abortion, and have many other disastrous side effects. Planned Parenthood, whose main business is killing the unborn and are the largest abortion outfit in the U.S., claim they are in the "healthcare business", but don't care at all about women's health, because they won't admit to the established fact that there is an abortion/breast cancer link. They are in the business of killing "by products of conception" as they call them, commonly known to most of us as babies. They are not healthcare providers. Poor-choice politicians are too dependent on the lucrative abortion lobby (Planned Parenthood included) financially, to speak up for the rights of women and their unborn children, even though 55% of women who have abortions have them against their will. Most Americans are against abortion, but many say they don't want to take away a women's right to "choose". Through mis-placed compassion that has no moral basis, they excuse this crime because they say " many children are abused and neglected so it's better for them if they are aborted, and then there is rape and incest". There are over 1,500,000 abortions every year in the U.S., and over 2,000,000 Americans waiting to adopt, right now, in the U.S. Rape and incest account for less than 1% of abortions. The truth is that abortion kills healthy children of healthy mothers, and many Americans just do not want to admit that to themselves. So how can we best lower the number of abortions in Chicago in the face of all this resistance based on not knowing the truth or on a denial of reality? IRC believes when we create a crisis of morality and put a financial burden on city government by having multitudes of Pro-Life Americans in jail, only then can we wake up the moral conscience of, and educate Americans to, the reality of our American Infanticidal Genocide.
