Thank you, Teresa, for the Beautiful Christmas Card!

Merry Christmas!

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus of Nazareth, Crucified and Raised from the dead,

Here are some statistics that I was able to put together devoted to homicides and abortions in New York City, Westchester County, and the State of Connecticut, for the year 2011, because these are the areas where I have lived and worked, for the better part of my life.

In New York City, in 2011, there were 502 cases of homicide.

In New York City, in 2011, of the 203, 514 viable pregnancies in New York City in 2011, 80,485 were terminated by abortion. 


2,085, or 2.59%, of the abortions performed in the City in 2011 were performed at gestational ages of 21 weeks or later.

In Westchester County, New York, in 2011, there were 26 homicides.

In Westchester County, New York, in 2011, over 4,000 viable pregnancies were terminated by abortion.

In the entire State of Connecticut there were 129 homicides in 2011.

I do not have the numbers yet for the number of abortions performed in the State of Connecticut as of yet for the year 2011 and the breakdown by what stages of pregnancy.

The good news is that even in New York City, where there is so much crime, the likelihood of a person already born being murdered is extremely low, and in Westchester County and the State of Connecticut, this likelihood is even lower!

I have researched homicides and what I have found is that most of them - are caused by people who already know their victims, like other gang members, and the like. So, if I am a complete stranger, even in the darkest and most forbidding alley - if I haven't wronged anyone, it is extremely unlikely that somebody would attempt to kill me.

But the bad news is that those in the GREATEST danger of homicide are pre-born children and it's the people who conceive them, and the perpetrators of abortion who TURN AGAINST THEM!

So it is abundantly clear!

The practice of abortion is the greatest threat to the public safety that our country is suffering from right now!

Time to call in loads and loads of common defense! ... 

Brothers and Sisters in Jesus of Nazareth, Crucified and Raised from the dead, let us hearken to the Founding Documents of the United States of America!




The Declaration of Independence!


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.



The United States Constitution!


We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

FANFARE FOR THE COMMON MAN!



Jesus of Nazareth is God, the Creator and Redeemer of the Universe.


So when Jesus of Nazareth says that we cannot worship God and money, and Pope Francis, his Vicar on earth says the very same thing, they are both absolutely right!

I have been privileged to see and be aware of vast amounts of wealth, and I have been privileged to see inside the human hearts of so many entrusted with this wealth, and I always see the same thing:  the love of money is the root of all evil.

That is why I choose to have no money now, and virtually no possessions either, and my "gospel" is to tell the public where all the paper for their own currency is manufactured, by Crane and Company in Dalton, Massachusetts!
Because there is no compromising with God, Who is the Resurrection and the Life!

Charity, Joy and Peace in Jesus of Nazareth, Crucified and Raised from the dead, and Laughter and the Joy of Friends,

To Love God's Holy Shroud is To Love All of God's Pre-born Children

To See the Singular Value of 
God's Holy Shroud of Turin ...


... Is to see the Singular value of Every Human Person from the moment of conception!



Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus of Nazareth, Crucified and Raised from the dead,

It is shocking how many pre-born children are aborted right here in my background, and how the Catholic and other religious organizations in New York - are doing virtually nothing to stop abortion, when they easily could! But there is a man, by the name of Chris Slattery, who has started FrontLine Expectant Mother Care Centers - with an annual budget of less than $1 million per year - Chris has saved over 48,000 pre-born children from the horror of abortion - during the 29 years he has been in operation!

Just last week, I attended a hearing at the State Courthouse, here in White Plains, New York - where parties in the State of New York - are trying to shut down Chris's Expectant Mother Care Centers - by denying them their right to freedom of speech, and to claiming that the operators of his ultrasound machines - are not validly licensed!

The abortion mills know that once a woman sees her pre-born child in an ultrasound machine that she desires, almost all of the time to bring her child to term!

Her right to choose is predicated upon her right to know, freedom of information, and when we put those two rights together, so that it becomes plainly evident that she is carrying a pre-born child - with unalienable rights - then the people have a right to call upon their military - to provide for the common defense of both mother and child!

It would be a drop in the bucket of our US military's budget - to equip every town and city - with readily available clinics offering free 4D ultrasounds to every expectant mother!

Once again, we must all remember that here in the United States, the real Bible of our land is not the Holy Bible but the Founding Documents of our Country: the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights!

So! If we are to have any hope of overturning Roe vs. Wade in America, our bishops and priests and ministers had better become far more adept at quoting and practicing these scriptures than even those of the Old and New Testaments themselves!

The real question therefore is this: Does the practice of abortion violate the contract that the people of the United States have with their government, as defined by the Founding Documents of our Country, and if so, what must we do to ensure that the contract between the people and their government is Constitutional?

Because if you look at people who are both pro-life and pro-choice,  the people from these opposing positions are basing their respective positions, upon the same United States Constitution!

So!

Here is how I respond to both sides: people who are pro-life affirm the right to life of a pre-born child, while people who are pro-choice affirm the right of an expectant mother to choose but both positions, as they currently stand, affirm only some and not all of the rights of both an expectant mother and her pre-born child!

What we need is a Constitutional solution that affirms all of the rights of both mother and pre-born child! - and what better one could I propose -than having the vast sums put into our US military - be deployed to provide for the common defense of both, because to ensure the domestic tranquility of any healthy society, women and children must come first.

Our US military has a public responsibility to secure the blessings of liberty for expectant mothers and their pre-born children by providing for their common defense, for themselves and their posterity!

The truth of the matter is that the teachings of the Catholic Church and the founding documents of the United States of America are in perfect harmony!

And both are built upon the same thing, namely that there is a Creator God Who has endowed every human person from the moment of conception with rights that are self-evident and unalienable!

So!

Here is a tentative cost breakdown for our United States military to procure the following to defend a woman’s right to choose and a child’s right to life, in all five boroughs of New York City, that could easily be expanded to become a military deployment, nationwide!

  • 80,000 Peg Perego Strollers at $400 each = $32,000,000
  • 80,000 Cribs at $500 each = $40,000,000
  • 80,000 Cloth Diapers for three year at $566 (including laundry costs) each = $ 45,280,000
  • 80,000 Pampers Sensitive for two years at $1,890 each = $151,200,000
  • 80,000 Sets of baby clothes for the first year at $720 each = $ 57,600,000

Tentative Total Cost for US Military Deployment to provide for the Common Defense of Expectant Mothers and their Pre-Born Children in New York City: $326,080,00.  This total amount, once again, is just a drop in the bucket in the budget of our United States Armed Forces, that exceeds $500 billion dollars!


A Expectant Mother and Her Pre-Born Children Have Constitutional Rights and Freedoms:

1.  The Right to Life
1.  The Right to Choose (The Blessings of Liberty)
2.  The Right to Know (Freedom of Information)
3.  The Right to Legitimate and Optimal Medical Care
4.  Freedom from Fear
5.  Freedom from Want
6.  The Right to Common Defense, from threats to life, limb and property - to Promote Their General Welfare, and to Secure Their Blessings of Liberty and to Ensure Their Domestic Tranquility.

Charity, Joy and Peace in Jesus of Nazareth, Crucified and Raised from the dead, and Laughter and the Joy of Friends,

Francis Joseph Paul DeStefano



Happy Thanksgiving!
