"Non-persons" in U.S. history


"At the moment of his conception life is within the womb, and at the moment of conception a life is forming, regardless of what the agents of hell now pollute the minds of mankind with, creating murders of the young! I say unto you, life begins at the moment of conception and all who extinguish this light are murderers, and without repentance shall be condemned to hell!”  - Jesus, June 18, 1977 


A 1970 California Medicine editorial acknowledged that a form of pathological lying called semantic gymnastics is an essential strategy for dehumanizing individuals before and after birth in order to promote abortion and euthanasia. The editorial stated, “very considerable semantic gymnastics” would be required to avoid “the scientific fact which everyone really knows that human life begins at the moment of conception” and “to rationalize abortion as anything but taking a human life.”  (“A New Ethic for Medicine and Society," California Medicine 113 (September 1970): 68)  

In United States history, several groups of people have at one time been refused the legal designation as a “person” and consequently have been denied the rights and legal protection afforded by the U.S. Constitution. The following quotes are taken from Dehumanizing the Vulnerable: When Word Games Take Lives by William Brennan. 

American Indians 

Writing in The American Law Review of 1881, George Canfield summed up the precarious legal standing of Indians that permitted the wholesale assaults on Indian lands and lives: “An Indian is not a person within the meaning of the Constitution” (1881, 28)



In Dred Scott v. Sanford (1857) the United States Supreme Court—drawing upon the concepts “nonpeople” and noncitizens”—reaffirmed the denial of fundamental rights to black people and sanctioned the expansion of the slave system westward. Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney asserted that Negroes are not “constituent members” of the “sovereign people” and “are not included, and were not intended to be included, under the word ‘citizen’ in the Constitution, and can therefore claim none of the rights and privileges which that instrument provides for and secures to citizens of the United States.” (Dred Scott v. Sanford, 19 Howard 404 (1857))

     Throughout the opinion rendered in Dred Scott, the terms “people” and “citizens” are “synonymous terms, and mean the same thing” and therefore often appear together. Taney highlighted those clauses in the Constitution that, he maintained, indicated that members of “the negro race” were “not regarded as a portion of the people or citizens of the Government.” He added that “it is too plain for argument, that they have never been regarded as part of the people or citizens of the State” (ibid., 404, 411, 412).

     There is a striking resemblance between the above constructs and the “person” and “nonperson” designations that operated and deny legal rights to today’s unborn victims. The Roe v. Wade assertion that “the word ‘person,’ as used in the Fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn” is closely related to the Dred Scott declaration that blacks are excluded from membership in the “sovereign people” and “are not included, or were not intended to be included, under the word ‘citizen’ in the Constitution.” Just as exclusion of unborn children from the constitutionally protected category of “person” relegates them to the rightless state of “nonperson,” the exclusion of blacks from the constitutionally secure classification of “sovereign people” or “citizens” reduced them to the rightless status of “nonpeople” or “noncitizens.”

     Borrowing a page directly from Roe (“the unborn have never been recognized in the law as a person in the whole sense”, federal circuit court judge and former law professor John T. Noonan characterized the plight of blacks under the Dred Scott ruling in the following manner: “Nowhere henceforth could a black in the United States be protected by federal law as person I the whole sense of the term” (1979, 81).  



One would think that after enactment of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920 granting women the right to vote, their personhood had been decisively and unequivocally established in the fabric of American law. This, however, proves to be an unwarranted assumption. In Commonwealth v. Walosky (1931) the Massachusetts Supreme Court decided that women could not serve on juries because they were not persons according to state law. In the words of Judge C.J. Rugg, who authored this decision: “The intention of the Legislature must have been, in using the word ‘person’ in statutes concerning jurors and jury lists, to confine its meaning to men.” Moreover, he declared: “It is unthinkable that those who first framed and selected the words for this statute … had any design that it should ever include women within its scope” (Ibid., 660-661).

The unborn 

The term “nonperson” has emerged as the most far-reaching and disastrous epithet ever invoked to devalue human life in the womb. When the United States Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision (1973) declared that “the word ‘person,’ as used in the Fourteenth Amendment, does not include the unborn,” it sounded the legalized death knell for huge numbers of unborn humans. Since then the nonperson concept has served as a foundation for countless articles, conferences, and court rulings designed to uphold and expand the abortion liberty as well as bolster experimentation on the unwanted unborn and the harvesting of fetal organs for transplantation. The Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey (1992) decision reaffirming Roe v. Wade and allowing only the most minor abortion restrictions reiterated the nonperson doctrine promulgated in Roe. “Since the unborn have never been recognized as persons in the whole sense,” reasoned Associate Justice John Paul Stevens, “an abortion is not ‘the termination of life entitled to Fourteenth Amendment protection.’”



"My children, voices cry out to Heaven to stop the carnage, the inhumanity of man to his brother. But I say unto you, as your God, that you have a free will to correct all the wrong or extend it until you destroy yourselves." - Jesus, May 30, 1981

"The Eternal Father command that you stop these murders at once! You will not destroy the lives of the unborn. Human life is sacred in the eyes of your God. No man has the right to destroy a life. The Father, He sends this life to you, and only He will decide when it will return back to the Kingdom.
     "Do not, My children, be deceived by the words of the evil ones about you who cry to you of no space left for man. There is space, for My Father has a plan for every life He sends." - Our Lady of the Roses, August 5, 1971


Our Lady of the Roses Bayside messages
These messages came from Jesus, Mary, and the saints to Veronica Lueken at Bayside, NY, from 1968 to 1995.

"How can a great country like the United States fall, you say, My child?  You ask Me in your heart.  I read your heart.  I will tell you why.  Because they have given themselves over to satan.  When a country has lost its morality and seeks the pleasures of the flesh, giving over, themselves over, to all manner of abominations, like homosexuality, and condoning this up the highest courts of the land, then that country shall fall." - Our Lady of the Roses, November 1, 1985

"Doctors now are profaning their profession, those who have given themselves over to destroying human life in abortions." 
- Jesus,
June 6, 1987

"Our hearts are torn because of the wanton murder of the young by evil man. Abortion, My children, is murder, the most foulest of deeds, that is punishable by death! And what is worse than death of the soul?
     "I say unto you, as your Mother, that any man or woman who performs or takes part of this abomination of the murder of the unborn shall be given a heavy penance upon earth, or if this penance is not given upon earth, that person found guilty in the eyes of his God shall suffer eternal damnation in the fires of hell."
- Our Lady,
December 28, 1976 

"All who become part of or condone abortion, the murder of the young, shall be destroyed!"
- Jesus, June 2, 1979

"The Eternal Father command that you stop these murders at once! You will not destroy the lives of the unborn. Human life is sacred in the eyes of your God. No man has the right to destroy a life. The Father, He sends this life to you, and only He will decide when it will return back to the Kingdom.
     "Do not, My children, be deceived by the words of the evil ones about you who cry to you of no space left for man. There is space, for My Father has a plan for every life He sends." - Our Lady, August 5, 1971

"You will remember, My children and My child, to guard the young. Your clergy have fallen into darkness. Abortion will never be condoned. But We must have others who fervently will go forward and bring out to the minds of those who have actually seduced the country and the children--bring them the knowledge of Heaven, hell and purgatory. Then they will not have free license to sin."
- Our Lady,
May 28, 1983

"For that one reason among many, the United States will suffer unless there is placed into your government a group that fears the Lord if they cannot love the Lord. They will fear Him and find measures to stop the slaughter of the unborn." -
Our Lady,
April 14, 1984

"That is what makes My heart ache, My child. That is one of the reasons Theresa is crying constantly when she looks into the convents and sees what is going on. Many now believe in abortion, the murders of the children; and many have committed this act upon themselves." - Jesus, October 1, 1988

"I say this for this reason: the Eternal Father is much disturbed at the numbers of abortions being committed throughout your country and the world. These numbers go upwards to fifty to sixty million in one year throughout the world."
- Our Lady,
June 18, 1986

"O My child, My tears fall upon you all when I see all of the innocent little babies being slaughtered . . . cast into garbage pails like nothing but dirt and scum. They are living human beings! And all murderers shall get their just recompense."
- Our Lady,
March 18, 1983

"At the time of conception, the Holy Spirit makes the child, and the breath of the Almighty gives it life." -
Our Lady,
June 18, 1991

"And what, My children, are We going to do with all the aborted babies? O My child, I know you feel as I do, for I can see the great distress on your face. What are We going to do, My child? Do you understand when they come to Us, they must go to Limbo? They are in Heaven, a happy place, but they cannot see God." - Our Lady, October 2, 1987

"Sorrowfully, the penance that is to come upon the world for the murders of the unborn shall be a chastisement far greater in severity than man has ever witnessed in the past nor ever shall pass through again. Your world is plunging into a deep chasm of suffering and destruction." -
Our Lady,
May 20, 1978

"Your once loyal to the oath of a doctor, your once loyal doctors are now butchers! For money they kill the young!" -
Our Lady,
February 10, 1978

"Know, My child, this simple lesson, that in these days of the latter times, women will seek to cast off their role as mother and a woman. Women will cast it off under the direction of satan, and murder her children. Woe to the woman who does not repent of this vile abomination! She has walked the road to eternal damnation and hell. Repent, O woman, or forever be lost!" -
Our Lady, March 18, 1975
