COMMON SENSE LOOK AT THE ABORTION ISSUE!
The following is a Common Sense look at the ‘Abortion Issue’ and was prepared by the West Virginia Reform Party, and adopted at a national meeting of the Reform Party USA (RPUSA) in Nashville, Tennessee in 2001. But because of the U.S. Supreme Court decision of 21 January 2010, in United Citizens v. FEC, whereby multi-national corporations can now spend as much as they wish to influence elections and government officials, and buy-up votes via campaign-financing, the Reform Party USA, and the WV Reform Party, dissolved in 2013 since national campaigns now cost into the BILLIONS of dollars and make it impossible for new political parties to compete on a level playing field! In Europe, by contrast, all candidates receive an equal amount of funding to run a three-month campaign… PRIVATE FUNDS ARE FORBIDDEN TO INFLUENCE ANY ELECTION CAMPAIGN…in Europe they have ‘Public-Funding’ of all campaigns and wealthy individuals & corporations are forbidden to influence elections!
Nevertheless, the following is of important interest to those religious Evangelicals, Fundamentalists & groups such as ‘West Virginians for Life’ who claim to oppose abortions, regardless of cause, yet at the same time support candidates that refuse to provide any public-assistance or public-programs to care for those children born with Down-Syndrome, mentally-challenged, physically-deformed, or other BIRTH-DEFECTS that require constant care 24 hours a day for the whole of their lives! While the WV Reform Party & RPUSA opposed abortions-on-demand, they did support abortions for rape, incest, a mother’s health & welfare, and scientific-tests that showed a baby born would be mentally & physically deformed to the point of needing constant care – since in more cases than not such babies & persons become mere ‘lab-rats’ for all sorts of experimental testing!
Another irony of those claiming to support ‘The Right to Life’ is their historic support of the Republican Party that has consistently provided corporate-welfare in the BILLIONS & TRILLIONS of dollars to the Military Industrial Complex (MIC) and the Homeland Security Industrial Complex (HSIC) – yet deny full Social Welfare Benefits & Entitlements to Wounded Veterans, single-parents, the unemployed & injured Workers of America! IT’S BILLIONS FOR DEFENSE – but not one penny for Social Welfare! This hypocrisy fits in with the over all policy of ‘PROFITS BEFORE PEOPLE’ – and represents a stark contrast between political candidates & political parties in this country at the present time!
Regardless, we trust that the following information will be helpful in understanding the realities of this important social issue!

SPECIAL REPORT II: ABORTION v. BIBLICAL LAW or THE LACK THEREOF
The controversy created as a result of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision (in which Plaintiff Norma McCorvey claimed she had been raped (then later admitted otherwise), has effected all areas of American life & culture and has become the most divisive factor since the War Between the States, which began as an issue over economics & “State’s Rights”, and ended as an issue over “slavery”. That ‘civil war’ cost a half-million lives and untold material damage. “Abortion” on the other hand, started as an issue over “women’s rights” and has cost untold millions of lives of unborn babies, and untold mental and physical damage among its participants. And now within the ranks of the Reform Party USA this issue of “abortion” is reaching a showdown between those who want “exceptions for rape, incest & a mother’s health” on the one hand, and those who say “no exceptions”, even at the sacrifice of the mother, all the way to demanding a ban on all ‘birth control’, whether pills or contraceptives. Is there a simple solution and consensus – or is this issue now fractionalized into so many splinters as to be a thorn in everyone’s side forever? What follows is an attempt to summarize this controversy.
[Note: Throughout the original Biblical texts, the Name of Our Creator appears over 7200 times as YHVH, and is pronounced in Hebrew as YaHweH, in English as YaHoVaH, in French as YaHVaH, and in German as YaHüVaH. Throughout this analysis, YaHoVaH is used for clarification, but the reader is free to their own preference of “YHVH”.]
Biblical aspects of Marriage v. Adultery:
The Divine Law sanctions “marriage” between a man and a woman to be held in honor by all, not just married persons. And what is meant by the “Divine Law” is the Ten Commandments, Judgments & Statutes as contained within the first Five Books of the Old Testament which historically has comprised the Common Law, which has formed the basis of our current Civil and Criminal Codes. All of these form the tenants of Western Christendom & Culture, including forming the religious basis for traditional Judaism and Islam. Thus there has always been a common ground. We are told in Hebrews 13:4, “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the bed be undefiled, for fornicators and adulterers YaHoVaH will judge.” Therefore historically, marriage has been the only estate in which a man and woman may cohabit lawfully pursuant to the Divine Laws.
Having said that, Leviticus 26 & Deuteronomy 28 both give the “Blessings” promised to all individuals and societies who obey the Divine Laws, as well as all the “Calamities” that can occur upon each for disobedience – and for general purposes, there are about 613 Divine Laws that we are expected to know and follow. These laws therefore become the “Operator’s Manual” given to us by Our Creator, just as is provided by any manufacturer for any given product. By comparison, we now have over 7 Million ‘man-made laws’ and regulations that we are ‘presumed’ to know as Citizens of this country from the federal, state, county and local governments and agencies!
When Our Creator formed Commandments, to safeguard society, for our Social Order and Justice, he did not say that all sexual relationship or all sexual desire is wrong – but he did condemn certain thinking and certain relationships and practices which would harm and adulterate the creation of mankind – these are summed up in the Seventh Commandment, “You shall not commit adultery.” And since mankind does not posses ‘instincts’, as does other creatures, these aspects must be learned – and this learning begins by being able to control our thoughts and our five senses of sight, smell, sound, touch, & hearing – all capable of triggering sexual desires, as shown through pornography, that may lead to fornication and/or adultery (1 Thes. 4:3; 1 Cor.6:9,10, 12-19; Prov. 6:20-32). And for the record, there is not one statement found in all of the Bible in defense of ‘sodomy’, i.e., ‘homosexualism or lesbianism’, but only condemnation. This is because such practices – including ‘incest’ – are part of the physical ‘adulteration’ of mankind hence the ordination of ‘marriage’ (Ro. 1:18-27; Deut. 27:20-23; Lev. 18)!
Birth Control & Abortion:
From the beginning, Adam & Eve were told, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth” (Ge. 1:28). This is the one command that mankind has willfully and zealously kept – leading now to fears of ‘over population’, hence demands for ‘birth control’ and ‘abortion’ measures! In 1 Cor. 7, the Apostle Paul councils regarding the sanctity of marriage, by stating, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” We are told, “marry to avoid fornication”, not “marry to fill the earth”! THUS MARRIAGE IS FOR “ADULTERATION CONTROL” – and since no one needs prodding to engage in sexual activity, Our Creator instituted ‘marriage’ as a means of controlling families and homes as the cradles of training and nurturing children – and as a means of controlling ‘fornication and adultery’ so as to not weaken mankind with all the multiple variants of ‘social diseases’, etc.
There is no specific Biblical law forbidding ‘birth control’ pills or contraceptives – there is just the negative command, “do not commit adultery”! And in Gen. 1:11, 12, 29, 30; 2:5; 3:18, and elsewhere, we are told to use “any green plant” from which of course comes ‘herbs’ from which many are known to either ‘prevent pregnancy’ and/or ‘abort’ a pregnancy! Recently the TV network Discovery (available at discovery.com), showed a one hour program on how the ancient Egyptians (and others) used such ‘herbs’ in this manner. In fact the program went on to show how this ancient knowledge was documented and recorded by various Priests & Nuns in their respective monasteries throughout the centuries – who not only provided it to the local populations – but which has formed the basis for modern pharmaceutical companies to develop the various ‘pills’ and ‘contraceptives’ now found on the commercial market!
Everyone knows the power of sexual feelings, yet the Bible does not tell a husband or wife how to satisfy each other sexually – other than that they ought to (1 Cor. 7:3)! Therefore the happiest couples are those who please each other without perversion, hurt or endangerment mentally or physically. And in such unions, those who have children understand that children are “Symbols of Love” (Ps. 127:3-5; 128:3)! And as a matter of record, just as no law forbids ‘birth control’, there is also no law that supports such – yet woman are created with a ‘natural time’ of assured freedom from conception which permits marital pleasure and communion. Therefore Our Creator has given us certain freedoms, while condemning all ‘adulterations’ and ‘perversions’, giving us his Divine Laws as a personal and social Standard, to judge, and to condemn (Lev.18)!
“Abortion” is known as the expulsion and destruction of the product of conception, the interruption of the development of an unborn child before such becomes viable. In this issue we are dealing with powerful and sacred forces of life, no matter how the pregnancy came about – but concerning this, Our Creator made no law! Yet some conclude that the Sixth Commandment, “You shall not murder”, includes a prohibition against any kind of induced abortion – and therefore nothing more needs to be said. Yet there are some reasons why an absolute law against ‘abortion’ cannot be formed which would be legal and fair in all situations. Marriage violations and matters of adultery and rape are dealt with in Deuteronomy 22:13-30, and elsewhere, whereby in order to cleanse society of such wickedness, the death penalty was imposed. In the first instances, death was ordered for both man and woman (v.22 & 23), in the second, death was imposed upon the man for rape (v.26). When it came to the woman in the first examples, there is no law ordering her excused if she is found with child, or to wait to see if she is found with child – therefore both she and any unborn child must die for the transgression of the mother! In the case of rape, the man must die – therefore wouldn’t common sense dictate that if the woman desired, she could cancel out the conception and negate the transgression of the man forced upon her as well? It is for these types of rape situations, as well as those regarding ‘incest’, that there is found no specific Divine Law forbidding ‘abortions’ – the ‘seed of the wicked’ is to be cut off from the face of the earth! It is a matter of Social Justice – not murder!
“A bastard shall not enter into the assembly of YaHoVaH; even
to the tenth generation shall none of his enter into the assembly
of YaHoVaH.” (Deut. 23:2 > ASV)
“You will destroy their descendants from the earth, their posterity from mankind. Though they plot wickedness against you and devise wicked schemes, they cannot succeed…” (Ps. 22:10,11 > NIV)
“Depart from wickedness, and do good; And dwell for
evermore. For YaHoVaH loveth justice, And forsaketh not
his saints; They are preserved forever: But the seed of the
wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land,
And dwell therein forever.” (Ps.37:27-29 > ASV)
"Like a corpse trampled underfoot, you will not join them in burial,
for you have destroyed your land and killed your people. The offspring
of the wicked will never be mentioned again. Prepare a place to
slaughter his sons for the transgressions of their forefathers; they are
not to rise to inherit the land and cover the earth with their cities."
(Isaiah 14:20, 21 > NIV)
The following Biblical passages show children involved in the guilt of their parents: Exodus 20:5; Ex.34:7; Leviticus. 20:5; Lev.26:39-42; Numbers14:18; Num.14:33; 1Kings 21:29; Job 21:19; Psalms 37:28; Isaiah 14:20-21; Isa.65:6-7; Jeremiah 32:18; Daniel 6:24. And kindly review Deut. 21:18-21.
Thus can anyone believe that Our Creator would become angry against any woman who ‘cut off the seed’ of a criminal rapist – whether raped by a stranger or incestuous relative? If mankind would not commit adultery, then most of these problems would not exist, but in a social & cultural environment where many no longer know the Divine Laws, or are told that they have been done away with by ‘grace’ – is it any wonder that such mass confusion now exists? Proverbs 19:23 clearly states, “The fear of the YaHoVaH leads to life: Then one rests content, untouched by trouble (calamities)”. And also, “And he said to man, `The fear of the YaHoVaH--that is wisdom, and to shun (depart from) wickedness is understanding'" (Job 28:28; Ps.111:10).
When it comes to the health of any given pregnant mother, if she were told that her own life was in great danger, should she willingly sacrifice herself for her unborn baby? Or should the government order the mother’s execution by some decree that the unborn baby must be considered first & foremost? Should any government, created by ‘free people’, have that much power? When a physician warns an expectant mother of such a danger, is he not safeguarding the mother’s life by advising an ‘abortion’? The fact is that a mother’s life is a sacred matter to safeguard her own life for even her body is a ‘temple unto her Creator’ – therefore she has a Right, without interference from any source, to Defend her own life when something threatens it! The Right of Self-Defense is sanctioned and found in every living creature! When an unborn child in her womb becomes a life-threatening matter, then under such a circumstance, the unborn child becomes every much an enemy as if she were facing an attacker threatening to destroy her! The situation is no different than if an intruder enters into someone’s home or auto threatening the life of an individual or family member – the intruder must be destroyed first – there is no condemnation under Divine Law for such self-defensive incidents!
In fact there are some very graphic descriptions dealing with this whole issue of “exceptions” such as ‘rape’ and/or ‘incest’ as shown in the following Biblical examples, that show the applicability of Deuteronomy 22 and Leviticus 18. For instance, in Genesis 34, Dinah, an Israelite, went to visit some other women only to be caught and raped by a Hivite, not of her race. The Hivite offered to take her for his wife (pursuant to De. 22:28, 29) and pay restitution to her family, but Dinah’s brothers, the Sons of Jacob, not only executed Shechem, the rapist, they executed Shechem’s father and all the males in the Hivite city, including confiscation of all their wealth – declaring, “Should he have treated our sister like a prostitute?” (v.31).
In the Book of Judges, 19 - 21, there is another graphic example whereby a Levite, the professional and governmental administrative class of Israelites, traveled with his servant girl to a city of the Benjamites only to find the city full of ‘homosexuals’ who wanted ‘to have sex with him’! So he offered them his servant girl who was then raped and left for dead and died thereof. When word spread to the other Israelite Tribes, 400,000 responded and attacked and almost utterly destroyed the men of Benjamin, including many wives, and the animals and everything else they found because of these transgressions.
Finally, in 2 Samuel 11-19, there are graphic examples of ‘adultery’, ‘incest’ & ‘rape’, within the House of David as part of the calamities brought upon David for his transgressions of the Divine Law with Bathsheba – and the death of the son conceived by Bathsheba. Then one of David’s sons raped his half-sister that caused a whole series of additional calamities and judgments upon the House of David, to the brink of destruction – just as warned by Moses in Deuteronomy 28, and as found in Leviticus 26! So clearly the Divine Law is a simple matter of ‘cause & effect’ = ‘blessings’ if followed – and ‘calamities’ of destruction, disease & death if disobeyed!
Political Ramifications & Realities:
A not too well known factor is that during the Carter-regime, a document was prepared by the Aspen Institute, called Global 2000, in which the destruction of 2 billion people was needed by the year 2000 in order to maintain the current worldwide banking system! This was at the height of the so-called ‘Hippie Movement’ and the great barrage of ‘women’s rights’ including the call for unlimited abortions for all ‘unwanted pregnancies’, etc. The rest is history with the advent of AIDS & the HIV-Virus-mutations that has been documented to have been designed, at the high security Aberdeen, MD, military complex, as a biological weapon – and then included in ‘vaccinations’ given to women in ‘Third World Countries’, that now threatens annihilation of many African Tribes and whole nations – simply genocide!
Meanwhile, at the time, the so-called “Pro-Life” movement held the overwhelming majority of popular and moral support. But this dissipated quite rapidly as the so-called “Pro-Choice” element began to expound upon the ‘religious zealots’ that refuse to acknowledge or accept any ‘exceptions’ for abortions, such as the exceptions for ‘rape, incest and the mother’s health’. Today an overwhelming majority of Americans support ‘exceptions’ for ‘rape, incest and the mother’s health’, as well as opposing the horrific ‘late-term-partial-birth’ abortion procedure – but the ‘no exception’ demands of these same ‘religious zealots’ have seen honorable legislature defeated in state after state – because the Courts are trying to maintain a legal consistency! And the legal theory that the 10th Amendment, State’s Rights, can solve this problem, may not hold up either in court, since crossing state lines to have a medical procedure dealing with life & death falls under the ‘interstate commerce clause’, as does possessing a ‘driver’s license’, and matters such as ‘kidnapping’, etc. Thus the final solution for the issue of ‘abortions on demand’, with exceptions for ‘rape, incest or a mother’s health’ may rest in either a Constitutional Amendment, or a simple federal law agreed upon by the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
The Reform Party USA is currently seeking a platform plank that will address this most important issue – and the question is, should such a plank include exceptions for rape, incest and a mother’s health? Or should the plank have ‘no exceptions’ and ban all abortions as murder – thereby forcing all women, and young girls, raped under any circumstances, to go to full term with the ‘bastard child’ of a criminal rapist? And with this latter choice also comes the forcing of all women with serious health problems to sacrifice their own lives for the sake of an unborn child and leave a husband and/or other children behind!
Since the percentage of women having abortions from rape, incest, and their personal health is a small percentage of the whole who do have abortions on demand for whatever reasons – a platform plank setting forth ‘exceptions’ seems the most desirable – compared to the harshness of the second ‘no exceptions’ alternative. Such a decision for the former would keep the RPUSA in the mainstream of American politics – instead of the radical fringe!
As for the infamous Global 2000 report and its horrible consequences currently underway for maintaining power for the international banking cartels – perhaps a platform plank calling for the restoration of a U.S. Treasury Bank is in order! Such a plank should include the call for the abolition and nationalization of all “Federal Reserve Bank” (FRB) assets is in order to take our country back from the international ‘money changers’! A study of the FRB shows it’s a branch office of the Rothschild’s Bank of England & the British desire to keep America their financial colony ever since 1776 – but that is a whole different topic altogether – since an end to the FRB would also mean an end to its collection agency, the IRS!
But to the matter contained herein, thanks for your consideration of this most important of issues before us. For those of us who are married with children, not many of us would ever want our daughters to be forced to raise any ‘bastard’ child from some criminal rapist! Nor would we choose an unborn child over the life of our respective wife – or the mother of our other children. Nor would our children need another brother or sister instead of their mother – if they had to ‘make a choice’! Therefore, as a matter of Common Sense, we will vote for the “exceptions” for ‘rape, incest, and a mother’s health’!
Proposed by the WV Reform Party, March 2001, and passed by majority vote by the Reform Party USA, July 2001.
Now while the ‘abortion’ issue is NOT A LOCAL issue when it comes to the County Commission, it is a National & State issue when it comes to the Radical Republicans who claim to be ‘Pro-Life’ – BUT THEN HYPOCRITICALLY HAVE VOTED FOR CONTINUOUS WAR FOR THE PAST THREE DECADES – and will not fully support Our Wounded Veterans or their families…let alone any Social Welfare Programs to assist single or married women of children with Down-Syndrome, mentally-challenged, physically-deformed, or other BIRTH-DEFECTS which need constant care 24 hours a day for the whole of their lives! The only political party currently capable of continuing a SOCIAL SAFETY- NET is the Democrat Party at the National & State level…
THAT’S WHY, as important as this mid-term election is, ordinarily we’d say VOTE STRAIGHT DEMOCRAT to keep the SOCIAL SAFETY NET & MEET the SOCIAL NEEDS of everyone – but since the two Democrat candidates for County Commission are so inept by lacking the knowledge and skills necessary to govern a county –
COMPARED TO THE TWO EXPERIENCED REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES FOR COUNTY COMMISSION – we say
Vote Democrat at every level EXCEPT for County Commission…
For COUNTY COMMISSION: VOTE FOR…
Charles Wilfong who is perhaps the most experienced and successful farmer this county has ever seen – besides working for all farmers in this state in the leadership of the West Virginia State Farm Bureau…
Norman Lee Alderman who has never stopped trying to benefit the folks of this county in all his various efforts as a school teacher, pastor, former county commissioner, and editor of his powerful non-subscription Website –
On 04 NOVEMBER…there’s no excuse…
IT’S YOUR CHOICE…
TO CHANGE THINGS FOR THE BETTER!
Just say ‘NO’ to those who want to keep this county in Poverty & Pauperism
– and –
Just say ‘YES’ to real Progress & Prosperity for the future!
