CRIMES COVERED UP
What the Pope Called the 'Culture of Death' Is Actually a Syndicate of Death

January 1998By Joseph Collison

Joseph Collison is the Director of the Office of Pro-Life Activities for the Diocese of Norwich, Connecticut, and Chairman of the Board of the Caring Families Crisis Pregnancy Center.

America is a seriously confused country. This is vividly shown by the famous public opinion poll of a few years back in which 77 percent responded that, yes, abortion is the killing of an innocent human being, and 73 percent responded that, yes, abortion should be legal.

We have laws on the books that prohibit and punish the endangerment, exploitation, and abuse of children and adolescents. So numerous and comprehensive are these laws that they constitute a clear statement by our people that our children are to be protected. But again confusion envelops us. That clear statement of the general will is contradicted by our privileging of the activities of abortionists, eugenicists, and sex promoters, whose work exposes our children to precisely the danger and abuse from which our laws are supposed to protect them.

The license to abort granted by the Supreme Court in 1973 has demonstrably weakened the network of laws protecting the defenseless and immature that had been slowly and steadily built up by our general will. (The much-demanded license to euthanize would unravel it further.) The laws of New York State in this area are like those of other states, and will serve as an example of how the spirit and even the letter of the law are violated with impunity. This examination should help to eliminate any confusion that is not willful. All citations are from the Penal Law of the State of New York ("NY Law").

Yes the abortionists belong in prison if not reporting Statutory rapes.

How about 98% of the Gay community that are involved with promiscuous sex and transmit communicable diseases including the deadly HIV?AIDS virus. In many cases they could and should be tried for murder.

All states have some law for deliberately passing on even less deadly communicable diseases from a misdemeanor to a felony.
