Tier 3

Personhood Later

Tier 3 leaders and organizations are waiting to advocate for personhood protection for unborn children, as they've repeatedly said, until the majority is ready to accept it, and until our (immoral and godless) courts are ready to uphold it. Those on this tier, including for example the Center for Bio-Ethical Reform's Gregg Cunningham, do not oppose all anti-abortion violence in that, for example, they support politicians who by their own policies advocate killing some children.

Actually Undermine Personhood Efforts: The third tier includes those in the pro-life industry who actually oppose and undermine personhood efforts and advocate only regulating murder with laws that end with the meaning, and then you can kill the baby. Those listed below, including National Right To Life, Americans United for Life, and Focus on the Family, oppose advocating now for the God-given right to life and personhood. (Aside from this being manifestly true, see an example from Louisiana.) Tier three groups also oppose candidates who fight for legal recognition of the right to life in favor of politicians who believe that some children do not deserve protection by law. Tier three groups have thereby relinquished the leadership in the fight to protect the lives of unborn children.

Leaders Wanted: Waiting for and following the wicked does not represent leadership. The U.S. Supreme Court, to this very day, has never repented of their Dred Scott decision which denied full legal protection to most blacks in America. Back then Britain's leading slavery opponent William Wilberforce advised American activists to not regulate but to fight for abolition. Consider the judgment of God, and even of history, and imagine the shame of Christians during slavery who for various pragmatic excuses opposed those fighting for legal protection of all blacks. If the Underground Railroad and other Christians adopted an anti-slavery strategy of waiting until the wicked Supreme Court was ready to reverse itself, slavery regulators and slaveholders might still today be campaigning against each other.

Anti-abortion Violence: All third-tier leaders researched by Pro-life Profiles oppose some anti-abortion violence including the vigilante killing of abortionists. However, each person and each group on Tier 3, including for example Gregg Cunningham and his Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, supports politicians who advocate some anti-abortion violence. Gregg's defense is similar to that of the abortion vigilante. He supports a level of violence, that is, he supports politicians who have "exceptions" (thereby advocating some abortion violence) because he is trying to prevent even more violence and he is working toward an end to all such violence. So in the name of eventually ending the abortion holocaust, all third-tier leaders defend politicians who intentionally kill some innocent people. This is support for a significant level of abortion violence and for much more violence than that advocated by those who unjustly kill abortionists. Thus those who murder abortionists, and those who defend "pro-life" politicians who advocate the killing of innocent children, share similar excuses.
