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


Planned Parenthood Baby Body Parts Civil Trial

5 things to know about the Planned Parenthood baby body parts civil trial


Sandra Merritt and David Daleiden outside Superior Court in San Francisco, California, Feb. 11, 2019

ANALYSIS

SAN FRANCISCO, California, October 10, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Almost four years in the making, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America vs. Center for Medical Progress lawsuit pits those who practice, advocate for, and profit from unthinkably cruel and barbaric acts on the tiniest of humans against a few individuals who had the tenacity, courage, resourcefulness, and faith to walk into the heart of darkness to expose trafficking in the brains, hearts, livers, lungs, and limbs of pre-born babies.

The significance of the case cannot be overestimated.

It’s a massive legal battle in which abortion giant Planned Parenthood claims those who say they were gathering evidence of violent crimes were actually engaged in a criminal conspiracy against it.

In preparation, at least 10 lawyers for the plaintiffs and 13 for the defense have spent hundreds of hours producing thousands of pages of documents, deposing witnesses, and racking up legal bills in the millions of dollars.

The final result now depends on 12 jurors in the U.S. district courthouse and what they will make of the evidence put before them during the trial, which began October 2 and will continue until at least November 8.

Here are five things to know about the biggest pro-life trial in decades as it gets underway:

1) What it’s really about: This lawsuit is Planned Parenthood’s desperate attempt to permanently discredit the undercover videos the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released in 2015 that exposed its part in trafficking baby body parts. The casual brutality of abortionists discussing crushing unborn babies and haggling over the price of fetal organs shocked the world and Planned Parenthood wants to convey that those who exposed them – not their giant abortion corporation – are in the wrong.

It’s also a retaliatory action: Planned Parenthood wants to to crush the pro-life advocates who went undercover and exposed them. The plaintiffs allege CMP’s project lead David Daleiden, undercover journalists Sandra Merritt and Geraldo Adrian Lopez, and founding board members Troy Newman and Albin Rhomberg, committed 15 crimes while carrying out the undercover video project, ranging from breach of contract to racketeering. They claim CMP is liable for paying for everything Planned Parenthood’s personnel bought, such as security upgrades and staff counselling hotlines, after they realized they’d been recorded.

But one thing Planned Parenthood is not claiming is defamation, because that would require it produce all the evidence it has for that claim during the discovery phase of the case, prior to trial. Since, in fact, the CMP videos are not defamation, evidence of Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue harvesting practices and pricing is not something it wants aired publicly.

2) Who the defendants are: Daleiden, 30, developed and ran the undercover sting operation and is the high-profile, public face of CMP. Newman, a veteran pro-life activist, is well-known as the president of Operation Rescue. Merritt, 66, a grandmother who ran a home business and was a part-time teacher, is familiar as co-defendant with Daleiden in an ongoing California state criminal prosecution. Lopez, 28, is employed by the Navy as a hospital corpsman in an intensive care neonatal unit, and got involved in the undercover operation after Daleiden met him when he worked at Starbucks and hired him to transcribe the videos. Rhomberg is a longtime pro-life advocate and investigator who did graduate studies in high-energy particle physics, taught physics at the University of Wisconsin, and worked in the space program at Caltech Jet Propulsion Laboratory and at the Johnson Space Flight Center in Texas: in other words, he’s a rocket scientist.

3) It’s a jury trial in San Francisco: Planned Parenthood brought its case in San Francisco, the most liberal district in the country. The nine men and three women selected after a closed door one-on-one with Judge William Orrick will make their conclusions based only on what they hear and see in the courtroom. In a jury trial, plaintiffs and defendants may pursue a line of questioning that lets jurors hear testimony that is ultimately stricken but could still influence their judgement, or bring up points that have little legal merit but might affect the jury emotionally. Significantly, Orrick isn’t letting the jury hear the audio from any of the undercover videos at the center of the case. The judge thinks the conversation in the videos, which record Planned Parenthood staff talking about harvesting baby body parts, would be “prejudicial.” In other words, if the jurors could hear what was being discussed in the videos, they might be so disgusted with Planned Parenthood that they would no longer be able to be impartial.

The defense is arguing that the audio is critical to their case. First, the content of the conversations corroborates their claim that they believed Planned Parenthood staff were committing violent crimes against people. More importantly, the audio conveys better than the video the un-confidential nature of the conversations. Seeking to uncover evidence of violent crimes against people is an exception to California’s law against recording without consent, and, if conversations are not confidential, there is no consent requirement.

There’s a chance that Orrick’s censorship could sway the jury toward the defense since they can see that the defense wants the videos shown while Planned Parenthood wants to talk about how awful they are but not show them.

4) The judge is biased and should have disqualified himself: It’s only the early days of the trial but Orrick’s conduct already vindicates the defense’s 2018 petition to the Ninth Circuit Court to have him disqualified, after he refused to disqualify himself at their request. His ties to Planned Parenthood are well-known (Orrick was on the board of a charitable institution that houses a Planned Parenthood abortion center) and his deferring to Planned Parenthood has led to daily early-morning battles between him and the defense lawyers before the jurors enter the courtroom.

Orrick has decreed that abortion and fetal tissue procurement are not relevant to the trial, his rulings fluctuate, and he arbitrarily imposed what he admitted were not federal rules but “the Orrick Rules,” which prohibit witnesses from speaking to their lawyers for all the time they are under oath. The defense team claims this impinges on their clients’ Sixth Amendment right to effective representation of counsel and lawyer/client privilege.

He’s also granted Planned Parenthood incredible leeway in conducting their case. One of the more outrageous things about this case is that Planned Parenthood includes or discards claims for damages as it benefits them, in order to keep evidence incriminating it out of the courtroom.

5) The defense lawyers are the unsung heroes: There are 13 lawyers from four law firms and four pro-life legal associations representing among them the five individual defendants, as well as CMP and its alter-ego BioMax. Almost all are away from their homes and their families to work exhausting hours over six weeks to put on a case within the frustrating constraints Orrick has imposed. They also must negotiate the conflicting priorities within their own team as required by their specific clients. Yet they all demonstrate a high degree of competence, graciousness, and a determination to win despite the odds.

Planned Parenthood Video Trial: Unjust Verdict


Click to watch a short video of Katie Short and Albin Rhomberg commenting outside the court house about the unjust jury verdict in the Planned Parenthood Video Trial, just after it happened on Friday, November 15, 2019, in the Courtroom of Federal District Judge William H. Orrick, III, in the San Francisco Phillip Burton Federal Building and United States Court House in San Francisco.

Chemical Abortion Experience

 

This is a true rendition, as shown in the movie Unplanned, of what takes place when a pregnant woman swallows the abortion pill referred to as RU486. It is this pill and the results depicted in the movie that will begin to take place on California University and college campuses (32 in all) next year due to Governor Gavin Newsom’s signature attached to Senate bill 24, signed into law on October 12, 2019.

The bill was authored by state Senator Connie Leyva, (D) and approved by every Democrat Assembly and Senate member in California’s Legislature.

The woman requesting the RU486 pill must be about 8 weeks pregnant for the pill’s results to take effect. This is different than the “Morning-after pill” which can be taken the morning after sexual activity as a preventive move.


 
 
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.
- St. Pius X, Jucunda Sane, March 12, 1904
