PLEASE MEET DENNIS AND PEGGY CUDDY AUTHORS AND HISTORIANS OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS

August 4, 2020

Dear Friends in the Pro Life Movement

I would like to introduce you to Dennis and Peggy Cuddy of No. Carolina. This is a mother and son team devoted to writing and informing people about the dangers of government control of the family.

In 1997 Peggy had published a booklet entitled: The Graspers: Is your Family Safe from them?

Peggy, had begun reporting on the, then strange, educational programs being developed and promoted by professors at The U. of No. Carolina at Chapel Hill where she had once worked. The program entitled the Abecedarian project is now touted throughout academia as the Social Emotional Learning agenda the focus of which is transferring the ultimate control of the child from the family to the state.

Dennis, aside from being a Professor, has authored about 20 books and dozens of articles. I invite you to visit the site NewsWithviews where you will find all his archived reports. There you will learn much about the characters and philosophies of many of the elitists who down through the decades have striven to be the powers behind the thrones of government leading us to the condition of the world as we know it today. . violence, terrorism, pandemics, attacks on our Constitutional rights, to name but a few.

All of his works are archived in the website. Below is a small example of his writing, extracted from a November 30, 2015 report entitled HOW TO DESTROY AMERICA. (I have permission from Dennis to publish).

Here is a brief paragraph of the above mentioned article:

Unfortunately, the United States has forsaken the Biblical values of the American Revolution and has adopted the values of the French Revolution instead.

In the early 1900s, Communist theoretician Antonio Gramsci wrote SOCIALISMO E FASCISMO: L’ORDINE NUOVO (SOCIALISM AND FASCISM: THE NEW ORDER) proposing to defeat the West by capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches, the media, etc. After the Communist Revolution in Russia in 1917, John Dewey (”Father of Progressive Education”) went to the Soviet Union, and in THE NEW REPUBLIC (December 5, 1928) expressed his admiration of the Bolsheviks, who were undermining the church and the family. In 1932, the National Education Association made Dewey their honorary president, and the next year he co-authored the atheistic HUMANIST MANIFESTO.

The financial situation of the Cuddy family has been drastically depleted due to unwillingness to move Peggy into Government care but in order to continue to provide her proper care we hope that you or your organization consider lifting-up the family in prayer for the spiritual strength and financial assistance now necessary for Peggy’s return to stable health and assistance in meeting the healthcare bills quickly mounting.

Here is Dennis’ plea for financial assistance for his mother’s continuing care:

Peggy Cuddy has been a strong prolife advocates for decades, publishing articles and attending marches, but recently she has suffered horribly. A doctor gave her the wrong medicine resulting in an acute brain disease, which has cost us $160,000 out-of-pocket so far and has taken almost all my life savings. Medicine given for back pain wiped out her immune system, causing a relatively minor face cancer to quickly triple in size! Seeking relief from dehydration and aspiration, she was informed by an ER doctor all she could do was “go home and suffer.” Two weeks ago she was admitted to a hospital with a slight fever, given nothing to eat for 3 days, was then placed in Intensive care and developed Mersa. After several attempts to have her tested for COVID, she was finally tested positive, placed in critical care, and is now fighting for her life on a ventilator and dialysis machine. Please pray for her and help us financially to pay her bills.

Peggy’s son, Dennis Cuddy (our address is 1027 St. Mary’s St., Raleigh, NC 27605).

Please give some thought to assisting this family. Please, also, share this request with others whom you think might be able to provide help to two long time loyal members of the Right to Life community.

Sincerely,
Camille Giglio. Director
California Right to Life Committee


Judie Brown, ALL President On the Subject of Embryos as Humans

Murder on My Mind
July 27, 2006 02:17 PM EST

I am often fascinated when reports on a topic converge within a very short period of time. You don’t often see mainstream media accounts that deal with the victims of abortion or human embryonic stem cell research. But lately, there have been a number of them, and the reactions have been most telling.

The first example came when White House press secretary Tony Snow had to apologize for using the word "murder" to describe the wanton killing of human embryonic children so that their stem cells can be used for research purposes. I was dumbfounded. What did Snow say that was so terrible, and why did he have to apologize?

When President Bush vetoed the funding bill that would have permitted greater expenditures of federal funds on human embryonic stem cell research, Snow told the media during his briefing that "The president believes strongly that for the purpose of research it’s inappropriate for the federal government to finance something that many people consider murder. He’s one of them."

Apparently his comment did not set well with the powers that be in the White House, for a few days later Snow was saying that the president is opposed to using federal funds for such research because the research involves "a destruction of human life." Snow further said he had overstepped during his briefing the previous week.

This disturbs me a great deal. But let’s look at a second example.

The Texas district and county attorneys association has reviewed the new law regarding late term abortions and determined that "doctors who perform late-term abortions or who perform abortions on minors without parental consent are now eligible to receive the death penalty."

One district attorney, Rebecca King, is concerned that because the law grants personhood to fetuses, she is obliged to inform doctors practicing in Potter County that they are required to report to law enforcement any pregnant woman they know of who has used illegal drugs. Her thinking is that the mother who uses drugs could be prosecuted for "delivery" of narcotics to a minor.

In view of these opinions, Texas attorney general Greg Abbott has been asked to rule whether laws passed in 2003 and 2005 could subject doctors to capital murder charges. Some believe that murder prosecutions of doctors could be an "unintended consequence" of the changes in Texas law. In other words, perhaps Texas law does not really mean that the aborted "person" is the victim of a capital
crime.

If these two examples are not enough to motivate one into rethinking what an act of abortion actually is, the situation in South Dakota should. In South Dakota one attorney has circulated a memo to doctors telling them that if the abortion ban law remains in place the homicide statute will have to be changed, or "doctors committing abortions could be prosecuted for murder."

To which any sane person would respond, "Why of course."

But not so fast. The problem that links the White House, Texas district attorneys and one South Dakota lawyer together is that there seems to be some debate about how we actually perceive that human being who is willfully killed during an abortion. For those of us who understand logic and the consequences of evil actions, there is no debate. If you take the life of a human embryo, a person, during his first days of life and you intend to take his life, you are murdering him. It is irrelevant that you may think you need his stem cells. The fact is, you know that by taking those stem cells you are killing. Tony Snow’s first statement, prior to the apology, should be the one that stands.

Apparently someone higher up in the administration does not really believe that human beings are persons deserving of legal protection from their beginning. What a shame.

But the president of the United States is not alone. There are far too many Americans, in all walks of life, including clergy, district attorneys and politicians, who have a tough time admitting that every preborn child is a person from the very beginning of his life. They will strive to either avoid discussing it or deny that a "fetus" has the same moral status as a born child or an adult with a college degree.

What is so startling about defining the preborn child as a person? The answer is that once you do this, you are inviting the logical consequences to that declaration. Intentionally killing such a person is an act of murder. Assisting in the intentional killing of such a person makes you an accomplice to the heinous act. Handing out a chemical that you know may kill a person before he has implanted in the womb makes you an accomplice in the possible death of a person. Performing in vitro fertilization procedures that result in "extra embryos" that are used for research purposes or simply discarded makes you a murderer.

Once you admit that a preborn child is a person who should have the same rights that you and I have, you are agreeing that this individual’s life is as valuable as anyone else’s. And any person who acts to rob that preborn child of his life is willfully killing a member of the human family. That’s murder.

Why is everyone so fearful of using that word? Why does the White House press secretary have to apologize for using that word? Why do district attorneys worry about how a law might affect a doctor who makes his money killing people?

The answer is most troubling. It is that those who claim to be the defenders of the innocent are not really all that serious about what they say. The politics gets in the way of honesty, logic and consistency.

As one commentator said after Snow "corrected" himself, "What Tony Snow was doing was calling them all murderers, and that doesn’t do much for close midterm elections."

Sad to think that such a callous comment is true, but we know it is. The public doesn’t want to hear the truth and apparently there are too few people with the courage to state the obvious.

Until each person claiming to be pro-life says what he means and means what he says, the word "murder" is going to continue to be anathema to the very people who know that the preborn child is willfully murdered by intentional acts of killing.

This situation grieves me deeply and it reminds me of a famous discussion in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass:

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less."

"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."

"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master, that’s all."

Take away God, all respect for civil laws, all regard for even the most necessary institutions disappears; justice is scouted; the very liberty that belongs to the law of nature is trodden underfoot; and men go so far as to destroy the very structure of the family, which is the first and firmest foundation of the social structure.
