Last week we witnessed an appalling, but sadly predictable chapter in the last days of the fading American Empire. We watched as the people of New York celebrated witch ecstatic cheers the passage of a law that legalized the abortion of babies on their birthdays. In New York, a state that does not allow the death penalty for murderers, infants can now be poisoned to death on the day of delivery while the mother is in labor and then have its body torn out from its mother’s womb limb by limb and the satanic left will feel nothing. They will smile smugly, or in this case cheer, as they call this baby, on its birthday, a clump of cells. In fact, if a baby survives an abortion, meaning it survives the attempted murder through some miracle and is a living baby outside the mother’s womb, living on its own, the baby can now be neglected until it dies. That is what these people are celebrating. No longer can they hide behind the ambiguity of when “life begins” something that has become increasingly less ambiguous as modern science has given us the ability to see through the lies that these unborn children were somehow just clumps of cells without feeling and without souls. This is the state of our dying nation.
This came to a surprise to many people, dumbfounded people who sadly, only reacted the way that the good people in this country have been reacting to every new evil in this country. By shaking their heads in shock and disgust and with fear of what will come next. And of course, we all know what comes next.
But how can this come as any surprise? Since 1973 when the supreme court decided in favor of Roe in the Roe vs Wade case, the same Roe who later admitted to lying about being raped which was the whole basis of the case, there have been over 60 million abortions performed in and with the blessing of the United States. 60 million Americans murdered and discarded in trash cans, or their tiny bodies used in experiments and commercial products as casually as any other natural resource. How is it that it’s only now that people are shocked? How can there be any astonishment when this mass extermination was sanctioned and normalized well before many of us managed to be statistically lucky enough not to be aborted ourselves?
For example, 20 years ago in 1999 the film Cider House Rules, produced by Harvey Weinstein’s Miramax, won 2 Oscars for its exceptional promotion of abortion. It’s a film that paints abortion as an exceptionally moral and brave duty performed by fearless renegade geniuses under constant attack by evil Christians who are too superstitious and thick headed to understand the sacrifice that must be performed.
This film wasn’t just a defense of abortion either, it was an infomercial. The soap opera nature of the film and the casting choices were clearly targeted at women and designed to not just reinforce and justify the beliefs of those who savagely discarded their unborn, or to comfort them with moral platitudes and deception, but also coax women to participate in the barbaric ritual themselves to feed their self esteem and increase their status. It painted abortion as a type of right of passage while representing pregnancy as something vile and hideous that often resulted in death. If you happened to be a man that was dragged to the theater by your feminist girlfriend, they had a message for you too.
Be an abortion doctor, the film implores you. It is the most honorable of all professions. You will be a savoir to countless women and an moral qualms you might have lingering inside your head, allow us to put them all to rest.
The film begins with a romantic soundtrack and images of a time that, as I have covered in other videos, America was desperate to return to. A time before the Marxist infiltration of our society and demographics. America is still filled with hope and wonder and the music reflects this and is soon accompanied by narration reinforcing this theme. The voice of Michael Caine says:
“In other parts of the world, young men leave home and travel far and wide in search of a promising future their journeys are often fueled my dreams of triumphing over evil, finding a great love, or the hope of fortunes easily made”
The shot then fades to an establishing shot of what we will soon discover is an orphanage that performs abortions. The perfect picturesque view of the past that the audience was just experiencing is about to be deconstructed. Like so many other films made by Hollywood, this film seeks to pervert the past and sully the reputation of your ancestors in order to justify the present. It’s about to tell you that the picturesque train station and the romantic music is really just a veneer covering a far darker reality. A reality that you should embrace, and celebrate as the true origins of your current culture.
“Here at St Cloud’s not even the decision to get off the train is not easily made for it requires an earlier more difficult decision. Add a child to your life or leave one behind.”
The narrator continues as we get a tour of the orphanage. The voice describes himself as a doctor that helps children and what he calls “unhappily pregnant women.”
We are now introduced to one of the children named Homer Wells. He is adopted out and returned by several families and the doctor decides to just teach Homer what he knows like an apprentice. Homer is taught to deliver babies, but the doctor, at first, decides against teaching him to perform abortions.
The interesting thing here is this is an admission that there is something morally different between delivering a baby and aborting a baby. The filmmakers know that in order to erase that deep moral truth inside the hearts and minds of the audience, they must first acknowledge it. They acknowledge that on a basic animal level people, even if they couldn’t quite articulate why, would have a visceral negative reaction to the idea that a young boy was being taught to perform abortions. Something that if they took the time to think about they would begin to question. Why would it feel any different that being told that the boy was being taught to remove tumors? But before the audience can even begin to ponder these things, the narrator instantly makes the appeal that pro abortion people have been making by erasing the baby from the argument and putting all the focus on the woman by saying:
“Long ago I had decided it was the women sometimes that needed to be delivered.”
Think about that wording. When you think of a person being delivered, what is the first phrase that comes to mind? Deliver us from evil. The filmmakers have just subtly planted the idea in the head of the audience that being pregnant is being the captive of evil. An evil that this doctor, who by the way given the context is taking the place of god, that this doctor must deliver this woman from. He is saving her from evil by killing her baby. This is probably one of the most disgustingly evil and effective lines of rhetoric I’ve ever encountered and it’s so flawlessly executed, with the happy romantic music still playing in the background, the majority of the audience won’t give it a second conscious thought as in the very next shot the young boy is dumping the remains of the murdered child into an incinerator.
We now see that this abortion doctor is also a drug addict sniffing ether and again we must ask ourselves if abortion is simply the act of delivering these women from the evil of having children, why must be constantly drug himself up to get through the day?
Homer comes and tells him that there are 2 pregnant women who have arrived. One would like to deliver the baby, and one would like to be delivered. The drugged up doctor attempts to guilt the young man into performing the abortion saying that he can’t understand why he doesn’t want to help women that need his help.
The boy explains that he doesn’t want to do it because it’s illegal and he never wanted to know how to do it anyway, but that the doctor, apparently at this point forcibly showed him how to do it.
Homer goes and delivers a baby while the doctor goes to perform the abortion. Afterwards they make small talk and name some new babies and Homer dumps the aborted baby into the incinerator and at this point we must ask why do the filmmakers keep showing us this step? This film is designed to promote abortion yet they keep showing the gruesome act of dumping the dead baby into a fire? While there are certainly esoteric meanings behind this, from a psychological standpoint this is also a form of desensitization. Humans can get used to anything through being exposed to it in repetition. The first time we saw homer dumping a dead baby into the fire, this is what his face looked like. The second time however, he looks as if he is simply taking out the trash and is even chatting casually with a young boy as he does it. The filmmakers, through repetition, are getting the audience used to and tolerant of the idea that a baby is being murdered and its remains are being casually discarded in a fire and I don’t think it’s much of a stretch to say they are getting the audience comfortable with something that closely resembles baby sacrifice.
Next we are introduced to Fuzz. Fuzz is a child at the orphanage with chronic health issues but exists only to humanize the doctors. You see, the doctors who so casually dispose of babies care very deeply for this child. This character exists only as a recurring prop that is brought out and waved in front of the audience just long enough to keep them from thinking that the abortion doctors are monsters. We also meet this young female orphan that throws herself at Homer. She also is used as a prop to develop his character as a man who doesn’t take advantage of women so that he seems as non threatening as possible.
Next we see the rest of the orphans praying before bed. The music is soft and lilting as the nurse who helps perform the abortions leads the prayer. The wording of the prayer seems to be asking god to help with their abortions as she asks for help to make it through the day “until the fever of life is over, and our work is done.”
The children play and seem to be well taken care of. They all hope to be adopted when different couples come. They have movie night where they watch King Kong, a film that features a woman that needs to be saved from a wild animal that views her as his mother. Seasons change and the doctor continues to use ether to get through the day.
At one point one of the orphans is telling homer that he wishes he could find his parents. When Homer asks why, the child responds so that he can kill them. This is the films way of chipping away at the idea that adoption is a good idea. It’s necessary that the orphanage be a happy place in order to make the abortion doctors look like saints, but the children must appear to be dangerous or unhealthy. The parents were right to not want them and maybe, just maybe, it would have been better for everyone if they had been aborted.
In the next scene one of the kids make a discovery. Huddled against the incinerator that has burned the remains of countless babies there is a woman. The symbolism will become clearer as we find out more, but she is kneeling at the feet of the altar where the children are sacrificed. We soon discover that she is pregnant and just like every pro abortion advocate has been regurgitating without anything to substantiate she is the mythical victim of all the back room abortions that plagued the country prior to roe vs wade. The procedure has gone wrong and she is now dying of the complications. The doctor uses this opportunity to shame Homer. Look at this terrible wound this woman had suffered because men like him didn’t want to perform abortions. If only abortions had been legal and free this poor girl wouldn’t be dying here on the operator’s table and of course she does die.
Inexplicably instead of alerting any kind of authorities, they simply dig a grave and bury her while the abortion doctor spouts out pro abortion talking points like “if you’re going to give people the right to have children you need to give them the right to decide whether or not to have them” which of course is just a jumbled up world salad that seems to insinuate that people can’t control whether or not they get pregnant.
After that a couple arrives at the orphanage for an abortion. This is the model couple, the handsome friendly young GI getting ready to go fight the War in Europe cast by the likable Paul Rudd with his angelic girlfriend played by Charlize Theron. They are loving and tolerant as the orphans play with their car and even bring chocolates for the kids.
They get the abortion and everything goes smoothly and Homer befriends the couple and decides to leave the orphanage go with them. The doctor gets angry because he feels betrayed. He has trained Homer to be an abortion doctor that can take over his illegal abortions once he is gone because he’s afraid that if he doesn’t that the evil christian board of directors for the orphanage will replace him with a doctor that wont perform illegal abortions.
Now that the film has managed to slowly normalize abortion and even performing abortions using homers character going from the boy who was disgusted by dumping the remains of babies into the fire to a doctor performing some of the abortions himself and then solidified the normalization with the casual abortion performed for the all american couple, i’ts important that the audience is kept lost in the story as these seeds blossom and bloom in their minds. If the movie were to end right here and the lights in the theater came on bringing them back to reality, they might begin to critically think about everything they had just seen. This can’t happen yet. The audience must remain lost in the story only able to access the emotional part of their brains so that these ideas have time to take root. Much like Homer is taking a break from the abortion clinic where he works, the audience is being given a break from the horror that is being normalized.
The filmmakers take us to a beautiful town where the couple is from. The young GI leaves to go fight in the war but not before he gives homer a job picking apples at his family’s orchard. Homer lives with the black migrant workers and we get the typical diversity messaging that Hollywood puts in all of it’s films. Homer also falls in love with GI’s abortion getting girlfriend, who clearly has no self control and they have a love affair.
This portion of the film is bursting with romantic and and happy music, beautiful landscapes, and emotional moments. Never once is the audience asked to think critically or logically about any of it and they would most likely be incapable of doing so if they tried. Every scene is designed to tug on deep human emotions from lust when Homer makes love to the object of his desire, to suspense when the migrant workers have a knife fight, to sorrow when the sickly fuzz finally succumbs to his ailments.
After traversing through the world of feelings long enough to almost forget that Homer was ever an abortion doctor or a boy dumping baby remains into an incinerator, the filmmakers tend back to the seeds that have had time to take root. The daughter of one of the migrant workers is pregnant and it turns out her father is the father of the baby. The audience is now confronted with a thorn on the rose they have been smelling for nearly an hour now and having already been guided down the road of accepting abortion for reasons of convenience, they are now presented with one of the least controversial moral dilemmas related to abortion and so his Homer.
Homer and the audience that has been living vicariously through him for the past hour must decide if a girl that has been raped by her father should be allowed an abortion and of course, the choice is made. Homer performs the abortion and the movie has now done it’s job. Very few in the audience, even those that might be pro-life are mentally fighting this decision. They have been slowly guided by the hand to accept this as just a necessary aspect of the world. Abortion is something that saves poor helpless women and the men that perform these abortions are reluctant heroes.
The filmmakers, having accomplished what they set out to do, simply need to wrap things up with a nice little bow. Things have now ended between Homer and his emotional distraction. The young GI is returning home with injuries from the war. The doctor finally overdoses on ether and to prevent the orphanage from falling into the hands of the evil christian board of directors, using forged documents and lying about being a christian missionary himself, Homer returns to the orphanage so that it can remain an abortion clinic and he can be that reluctant hero, that champion of women, that delivers them from the evil of having a baby and make sure the fire in the incinerator never goes out.
