A Creative Revolution

An open letter to Disney, WarnerMedia, NBCUniversal, Sony Pictures, CBS, Netflix, Showtime, Alyssa Milano and to any other company or Hollywood star that promotes economic boycotts or any other kind of boycotts against any of the states that pass heartbeat bills.

[Although it was not initially thought this way, this open letter is also for all the CEOs that affirm that “pro-life bills are bad for business,” including the CEOs of Twitter and Pinterest, who openly block pro-life accounts and contents.]

[Although it was not initially thought this way, this open letter is also for all the heads of government, heads of state and rulers that are pro-abortion.]

Dear creative brothers and sisters:

I am calling you “creative brothers and sisters” because that is what you all have in common. We, artists, dedicate our lives to create amazing works arts. Companies and brands are also creative, in a different sense. Even if many companies or brands are not dedicated to “creative affairs” in the sense of artistic creativity, every business and brand has a “creative responsibility” of creating a better society for all… so calling you all as “creative brothers and sisters” in this letter is perfectly fit for everyone. Ohh yes, dear creative brothers and sisters: businesses and brands are not made only for creating profits, you must create them in a way that also creates a better society for all. The same applies to any artistic creative work: the value of a work or art ––movie, paint, music…–– is not only the creative work in itself ––no matter how amazingly good your artistic techniques are––, but how that work of art helps to create a better society for all.

That sense of “social creativity” also applies to all heads of government, heads of state and rulers, although with a different dimension: you dedicate your life to make possible governments that create a society where the human and social dignity of everyone is unconditionally recognized.

Now, let’s reflect together what we can create together, the society we want and are called to create together.

Through these weeks there had been a lot of discussions about the heartbeat bills: bills that affirm the dignity of a human being from the womb.

You have threatened to boycott states that affirm these heartbeat bills, stating comments like the following:

––“It’s very difficult for the company to continue filming in Georgia if the state’s highly restrictive abortion law is carried out…”

––“We have many women working on productions in Georgia, whose rights, along with millions of others, will be severely restricted by this law…”

––”We fully expect that the heartbeat bills and similar laws in various states will face serious legal challenges and will not go into effect while the process proceeds in court. If any of these laws are upheld, it would strongly impact our decision-making on where we produce our content in the future…”

––”Creative voices across our industry have expressed strong concern about the recently signed bill in Georgia. The ability to attract the best talent is the first step in producing great entertainment content and is always an important consideration in where we film any series. We are monitoring the legislative and legal developments in Georgia with the full expectation that the process in the courts will play out for some time…”

––”Should it ever come into effect (the heartbeat bill), we’d rethink our entire investment in Georgia…”

You have also written an open letter titled “Don’t Ban Equality,” in which you affirm that abortion is essential for standing for equality and women’s empowerment.

Governments like the governments of Vermont and Illinois have legalized abortion through all 9 months, a minor’s ability to obtain an abortion without legal consent, partial birth abortion, forcing doctors to perform abortions… pro-abortion measures that clearly do not affirm the human and social dignity of all citizens.

I know there are more comments related to what you have said about the heartbeats bills and about you open letter that could be found easily, but I think these are enough examples to show the direction of your arguments: your creative work, your businesses, your governments are not compatible with “restrictive laws”.

The real debate here is not about “restrictive laws”, my creative brothers and sisters. The real debate here is quite deeper: who is the one who is allowed to choose who is human enough to be granted the human right to live, instead of being aborted? Who determines who is human, and who doesn’t?

As humanity, we have had these kinds of debates several times throughout our history. We have several examples of what happens when we let people choose who is human and who is not. Let’s remember three of these examples: one from Europe, one from Africa, and one from our own nation. The information provided is taken almost literally and mostly from Wikipedia, you can check it for yourselves. The underlined words are mine.

Example 1: Germany, between 1933 and 1945. Between these years, Germany was transformed into a Nazi dictatorship where nearly all aspects of life were controlled by the government, including who should be considered human and who were “an inferior race.” Racism, especially antisemitism, was a central ideological feature of the regime. The Germanic peoples were considered by the Nazis to be the master race, the purest branch of the Aryan race. Discrimination and persecution against Jews and Romani people began in earnest after the seizure of power.  The first concentration camps were established in March 1933. Jews and others deemed undesirable were imprisoned, and liberals, socialists, and communists were killed, imprisoned, or exiled. Christian churches and citizens that opposed Hitler’s rule were oppressed, and many leaders imprisoned. Education focused on racial biology, population policy, and fitness for military service. Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels made effective use of film, mass rallies, and Hitler’s hypnotic oratory to influence public opinion. The government controlled artistic expression, promoting specific art forms and banning or discouraging others.

The Holocaust was a genocide in which Nazi Germany systematically murdered some six million European Jews—around two-thirds of the Jewish population of Europe—between 1941 and 1945. Jews were targeted for extermination as part of a larger event during the Holocaust era, in which Germany and its collaborators persecuted and murdered other groups, including Slavs (chiefly ethnic PolesSoviet prisoners of war, and Soviet citizens), the Roma, the “incurably sick”political and religious dissenters. Taking into account all the victims of Nazi persecution, the death toll rises to 17 millions.

As a result of the Holocaust, nations collaborated to establish the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: an agreement on minimum standards of dignity to be afforded to all human beings.

Example 2: Rwanda, between 1990 to 1994. Between these years the Rwandan Civil War arose from the long-running dispute between the Hutu and Tutsi groups within the Rwandan population. The Rwandan genocide, also known as the genocide against the Tutsi, was a mass slaughter of Tutsi and moderate Hutu in Rwanda, which took place between 7 April and 15 July 1994 during the Rwandan Civil War.

The genocide was organized by members of the core Hutu political elite, many of whom occupied positions at top levels of the national government. The scale and brutality of the massacre caused shock worldwide Most of the victims were killed in their own villages or in towns, often by their neighbors and fellow villagers. Tutsis were called inyenzi (cockroach). The term became ingrained in the public sphere as almost every single Kangura edition, hate radio RTLM and outspoken politicians claiming to defend Hutu power referred to human beings as cockroaches. Hutu gangs searched out victims hiding in churches and school buildings. The militia murdered victims with machetes and rifles. An estimated 500,000 to 1,000,000 Rwandans were killed, about 70% of the Tutsi population. Sexual violence was rife, with an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 women raped during the genocide. The genocide ended with the military victory of the Rwandan Patriotic Front.

As a result of the Rwandan genocide, nations collaborated to establish the International Criminal Court: an intergovernmental organization and international tribunal that has jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for the international crimes of genocidecrimes against humanitywar crimes, and crimes of aggression.

Example 3: United States, between the 18th and the 20th centuries. Slavery, racial inequality, and segregation of African American citizens. Slavery in the United States was the legal institution of human chattel enslavement, primarily of Africans and African Americans, that existed in the United States of America in the 18th and 19th centuries. The total slave population in the South reached 4 million before liberation with the Civil War. After this African American people endured social deprivation and racial segregation of facilities, services, and opportunities such as housing, medical care, education, employment, and transportation in the United States was legally and socially enforced. African American citizens were often called “niggers” (from now on I will use the term “the N-word” for avoiding offense.)

Signs were used to indicating where non-whites could legally walk, talk, drink, rest, or eat. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of segregation in Plessy v. Ferguson (1897), so long as “separate but equal” facilities were provided, a requirement that was rarely met in practice. The doctrine was overturned in Brown v. Board of Education (1954).

Racial segregation followed two forms. De jure segregation mandated the separation of races by law, and was the form imposed by slave codes before the Civil War and by Black Codes and Jim Crow laws following the war. De jure segregation was outlawed by the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. In specific areas, however, segregation was barred earlier by the Supreme Court in decisions such as the Brown v. Board of Education decision that overturned school segregation in the United States. De facto segregation, or segregation “in fact”, is that which exists without sanction of the law. De facto segregation continues today in areas such as residential segregation and school segregation because of both contemporary behavior and the historical legacy of de jure segregation.

As a result of the racial segregation and racial inequality, the civil rights movement was born. This movement was a struggle for social justice that took place mainly during the 1950s and 1960s for blacks to gain equal rights under the law in the United States. The Civil War had officially abolished slavery, but it didn’t end systematic discrimination against blacks—they continued to endure the devastating effects of racism, especially in the South. By the mid-20th century, African Americans had had more than enough of prejudice and violence against them. They, along with many whites, mobilized and began an unprecedented fight for equality that spanned two decades.

Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Baptist minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968. King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, tactics his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi helped inspire.

These, dear creative brothers and sisters, are just three examples of what can happen when you let those who are in power to decide who is human and who is not, who is worthy of having human rights and who doesn’t.

So, history teaches us, dear creative brothers and sisters, that when our identity as human beings and our human rights depend upon partisan views, upon ideological views or upon the thought of those who are worldly powerful, no matter who the person, the political party or the company is, the consequences can be truly a humanitarian disaster… like abortion is right now, even if you can’t see it.

Let’s follow the three given historical examples and apply them to abortion, dear creative brother and sisters:

 

  1. Abortion systematically dehumanizes human beings, as the Nazis did with Jews, the Hutus did with Tutsis and laws in the United States did with African American people.

 

  1. Unborn babies are being called “parasites” in the very same way the Jews had been called “an inferior race”, the Tutsis had been called “cockroaches” and the African American people had been called “the N-word.”

 

  1. Biology is being defied in order to make abortion socially acceptable, questioning the very identity of our humanity and when human life beings, exactly as happened with Germany’s racial biology. According to biology, any living being with human DNA is a human being, and so entitled to unconditional human rights, as the Declaration of Human Rights affirms. According to biology, life starts at conception. Well, according to the ideological biology of those who promote abortion, human life may start anywhere you feel it right, the unborn are just a “blurb of cells,” and of course, if they are not alive human beings they have no human rights neither, including the human right of life.

 

Let’s reflect this together as creative people, dear creative brothers and sisters: it is right to dehumanize people systematically… and legally? What kind of society we want to create with our creative works? It is right to promote and economically enforce the legal dehumanization of unborn human beings in the United States, as happened in Nazi Germany, in the Rwandan Genocide and in the years prior the Civil Rights movement, just because the unborn are not able to survive by their own in that developmental stage? So, should we also systematically and legally dehumanize and kill other people among us that can’t survive by their own, like disabled people, older people and terminally-ill people?

I don’t think so, dear creative brothers and sisters. I don’t think that is the kind of culture, nation, and society we are called to be. That’s how genocides happen: with systematic dehumanization. For genocide to occur, it must be preceded by the dehumanization of a group. To dehumanize means to deny the humanity of someone, not granting them the human rights they are unconditionally entitled to have. Dehumanization also removes the individuality of a person. There is no difference between the group and the individuals: unborn are not seen as persons, as brothers and as sisters, as beloved people among us, but as “parasites.” When dehumanization is done well, pity and empathy for the “other” become impossible and extermination becomes the natural next step. How should we call this, dear creative brothers and sisters, the “parasites genocide”?

It is not uncommon to deny a genocide with all kind of semantics tricks, but what is undeniable, dear creative brothers and sisters, is that the dehumanization and extermination of a group of people simply because of who they are is never justifiable. You know this, you have applied it very well to those persons who identify themselves as gay. The question is: why, dear creative brothers and sisters, the very same humanity that is recognized in some cannot be recognized unconditionally in every human being, as the Declaration of Human Rights affirms?

Ask yourselves if this is the way you want to promote with your companies and influences, dear creative brother and sisters: a way of dehumanization? Let us not fall victim to semantics and denial: abortion is the systematic and legal dehumanization of the unborn, exactly has happened in Nazi Germany with the Jews, exactly as happened with the Tutsis in the Rwandan Genocide, exactly as happened with African American people between the 18th and 20th centuries. In the same way that killing of more than so many people was not spontaneous in Germany and Rwanda, the death of approximately 250 million babies aborted chemically since 1973 in the USA is not spontaneous neither. The systematic dehumanization of the unborn was an essential part of it. Their deaths were not deserved. As Martin Luther King said: “If America is to remain a first-class nation, it cannot have second-class citizens.”

Dear creative brothers and sisters, why I am writing all this to you? Because I know where the systematic dehumanization of human beings leads when it becomes an “anti-human culture.” Said in other words: I know what happens when abortion becomes a “social abortion,” when the dehumanization of some becomes so socially ingrained that it “aborts” our whole society, it literally “aborts” who we are as a society.

I, dear creative brothers and sisters, am the living example of what happens when abortion becomes “social abortion”, when “selective dehumanization” is enforced by society, like you pretend to do by enforcing the right of “selectively dehumanize unborn human beings” with your economic boycotts and pro-abortion laws.

I am writing you to warn you, from a creative person to another, with all respect but also with all clarity: what you are doing is not the way to become the society we are called to be, that is a road that leads directly to the destruction of what makes us a democratic society. Social abortion destroys our society from the very core through destroying all possibility of fraternity, equality and growing together in communion; all possibility of unconditional human dignity and social dignity.

What is “social abortion”? Social abortion is when certain persons are systematically and selectively dehumanized by society. With “systematically” I mean that the dehumanization attempts occur in all the social environments where the person or the persons exists; the dehumanization attempts are being done everywhere and are socially normalized. By “selectively” I mean that the person is selectively dehumanized due to certain reasons. This is the very same thing that the Holocaust, the Rwandan Genocide, the slavery of African American citizens and racial inequality have in common: selective dehumanization.

Let’s talk first about the “systematic” part of social abortion. In my case, I have faced dehumanization attempts literally in all the social environments I had been at least since 2008, although the dehumanization process could have begun as early as 2005: I had faced dehumanization at my parent’s home, I had faced dehumanization at the universities I studied, I had faced dehumanization in all the psychiatric hospitalizations my parents forced me to endure, I had faced dehumanization in all my extended family and friends social relations, I had faced dehumanization at my parish, I had faced dehumanization where I worked… and even worst: I witnessed how people had been exploited ––including students, elderly people and disabled children–– in order to attempt to dehumanize me.

The most particular part of all this is that through most of the years I had no minimal idea of what was going on. I was as unconscious of the dehumanization process I was enduring as any unborn child is when he is being aborted. I was not able to defend myself. I was not able to have a real notion of the reality that was happening around me. I was not able to make anything to stop it. I was totally vulnerable and innocent. This is what you want to promote with your economic boycotts and pro-abortion laws: the dehumanization of innocent and vulnerable human beings, unable to defend by themselves?

I had no idea of so many things! I had no idea I was being drugged without my knowledge in order to manipulate my behavior, my health, and my cognitive abilities. I had no idea that all my social relations, specially towards my progenitors, neighbors and those who where closest to me, where being manipulated in order to “abort me” from society (yes, this is literally “social abortion”, in order to not being able to have an ordinary social life, in order to not being able to be who I wanted to be and not being able to live according to the faith that defines me.

When I finally realized that the only way that everything that was happening was due to my parent’s psychological abuse and all the things they did in order to control me and to dehumanize me ––literally, to socially abort me–– they recreated a psychotic scenario and even I believed it because the doctors enforced it with every means possible, including forced psychiatric medications, paid by Medicaid.

Of course, my progenitors did not plan this “social abortion” alone: they had plenty of help, including the help of those doctors and psychologist who should have been trained to detect the plenty signs of psychological abuse and physiological discrepancies that were present along the way as clear signs that I was being drugged without my consent and knowledge.

In all those years there was not a single doctor, not a single one, who stood for me and said: this is abuse, and this should be reported and stopped. Not a single one, and I did tell what I was enduring: baths with water that felt like it burned my skin (I don’t think that any correlation with saline abortion is an accident), faint due hunger because I had not enough money to buy food, perfectly sealed water bottles that burned my throat when I drank them, sudden secondary effects that clearly seemed to be caused by some kind of drug in my food or drinks, being threatened to be left without internet and car if I did not agree to go to the doctor of their choice… I even had a flea walking in my naked body in one of the forced hospitalizations, and the nurse made no questions.

There is a very particular example of how gruesome things were in those forced hospitalizations, where nothing that I said was believed, or if I chose to remain silent, the doctors simply transcribed directly what my parents said as if I said it. When I explained that sounds ––example: rooster sounds–– where being made around me in certain moments of the day (when I was in the bathroom, when I just opened my eyes during the night, when I woke up…) in order to precisely give the impression of psychosis, the nurse said: that is too difficult to prove. I never talked about that again. I was not given a single chance, a single tiny chance, to explain what was going on around me without being considered a “psychotic.” If I said the truth, I would be given more forced medications that would make me unable to think clearly and even worst, to pray in the best way I could. If I remained silent, the word of my progenitors would be used as mine, and I would be medicated by force anyways. No matter what I chose, doctors would use medicine to dehumanize me according to my progenitor’s purposes.

This is a very, very cruel form of dehumanization: using medicine to dehumanize a human being, using medicine against its very own first basic principle, do no harm.

Tell me, dear creative brothers and sisters: this is not what is also being done systematically with unborn babies, using the medicine that should serve life to dehumanize them, making seem selective abortion as a “necessary and ordinary medical procedure”? This is what you want to promote with your economic boycotts and pro-abortion laws, the selective abortion of those that have no voice of their own to defend themselves?

My case is very, very, very evident case of why even progenitors or relatives should not have the authority to choose if their child or family relative should be “selectively aborted” or not. The humanity of a child or a person doesn’t depend on the progenitor’s or relative’s criteria of humanity. A human being is a human being, no matter what, no matter how small, no matter how needed of help he could be in certain stages of his life. Everyone’s human rights are unconditional, even those of my very own progenitors who denied mine during so many years in such cruel way, and this should not be negotiable. No one, absolutely no one, should be given the power to dehumanize anyone, no matter what, and of course not legally neither. This is something that could be considered an universal social principle if we want to create a society where everyone grows as a brother and a sister, as I dream to.

My case is also a very, very, very evident case of why even governments should not have the authority to dehumanize selectively: all that I went through was perfectly legal, and perfectly inhumane too, and besides that totally paid by the government too. Not only the government paid for all the forced hospitalizations and forced medicines I had: policeman came inside my room to force me to go to some of the forced hospitalizations without even giving me enough time to gather my things, telling me that they had no more time to give me because “they needed to help other people” (I am not exaggerating, I am literally quoting what the policeman said to me when changed of opinion and did not give me 30 minutes to gather things in my room ––after telling me I had 30 minutes to gather my things––; basic things like a blanket for not being cold in the hospitalization. Although the judge’s order was from two days earlier, I was not warned at home neither, they just let the police come for me… and I was never asked if there was abuse, or believed when I did tell it), judges gave judicial orders to hospitalize me by force without me having the slightest opportunity to defend myself legally from my progenitor’s legal exploitation (I am not exaggerating: I had no option to ask for free legal assessment or free legal defense to dispute what my progenitors were doing, because the income that is used for qualifying for free legal services of the state is the house income, so I did not qualified for a free lawyer due my progenitor’s income), the doctors that had force-medicated me and “gave me treatment” were doctors of the public health systems (one of my doctors was literally the head of the psychiatry department of the public school of medicine, I am not exaggerating, this doctor supervised all the psychiatry residents, so think for a moment all the psychiatrists that are around there, taught and graduated by this doctor…). Besides all this, I did not qualified for public food stamps to buy food by myself and at least try to avoid all the poisoned food my progenitors gave me for the very same reason I did not qualified for free legal assistance (I am not exaggerating, I literally know what is faint due hunger…). Please notice that there had been many, many, many government employees that were complicit with what I went through. The humanity of a child or a person doesn’t depend on the government’s criteria of humanity. A citizen is a citizen, no matter what, no matter how small, no matter how needed of help he could be in certain stages of his life. I know what is being denied person-affirming security, person-affirming legal defense and person-affirming medical services by your very own government, exactly like what happens with the unborn in pro-abortion governments. No government should allow the selective dehumanization of its own citizens and even pay for it, and this applies in the very same way to any citizen, no matter what developmental stage and how dependent the citizen is.

Because I know the consequences of the systematization of social abortion, and the unborn are clearly also being systematically aborted socially by your economic boycotts and pro-abortion laws ––you are socially normalizing the selective abortion of the unborn–– I can clearly tell you, dear creative brothers and sisters: the way you are going on is not the right way for our society. We should have learned this lesson as humanity with the Holocaust and the Declaration of Human Rights: nothing good, absolutely nothing good, can come from systematize the selective social abortion of some, as it happened in the ghettos and concentration camps.

By the way, I know what is being “gassed” too, like in the concentrations camps: one of the dehumanization attempts had been causing me coughs in diverse environments (where I prayed, where I worked, where I slept…). Even that was systematic. Some people say that abortion is not killing a human being: is just causing a “pregnancy interruption” with chemicals. Well, I let you choose if causing breathing problems on purpose in certain everyday environments is social abortion or just causing an “air interruption to the lungs”, like it happens when whatever the unborn needs to support life is “interrupted” (this could be done in several ways). I will let you choose if that is the kind of society you want to create: a society that only allows that only those who are “convenient” to some have what they need to live as human beings with dignity.

Now, let’s talk about the “selective” part of social abortion. Like happens with the selective abortion of the unborn ––sex-selective abortions, disability-selective abortions, so on…–– those who are socially aborted are “selectively aborted” due to a specific ideological reasons: they do not fit or promote the ideology of those who define who are “humans” or not. When ideology defines our humanity, society is completely destroyed by social abortion: all social relations begin to depend upon how convenient is a person towards the promotion of ideology, transforming the person in an ideological object. The very human identity becomes ideological propaganda.

Of course, I have refused to comply to define myself according to the ideology of those who have attempted to dehumanize me, and precisely because of that, I had been tried to be “selectively aborted” once and once again, in many, many environments… The reason behind my “selection” to be socially aborted? (the similitude with the “selection” of the concentrations camps is no accident…)

Said simply: due to my faith. The faith I life radiates a light that shines so bright, so bright, so bright… that makes evident to the whole world ––literally to the whole world–– that no ideology can be more powerful than God’s Love and His call to help everyone to grow in communion, including those who have attempted to dehumanize me once and once again. Really, this was not conscious neither during most part of this journey. It just became hugely and clearly evident at the very end.

Yes, dear creative brothers and sisters, you just read that a person is being socially aborted ––or tried to be socially aborted–– because of her Christian faith. If you believed that faith persecution did not exist in the United States, you are wrong… as wrong as you are by trying to enforce the abortion of the unborn, with your economic boycotts and pro-abortion laws, to those who chose to do the right thing in order to create a society where everyone grows as a brother and a sister: affirm every person unconditionally since the very beginning to the very end of human life.

I am not saying that the heartbeat bills are exempt of any kind of critics. The same thing applies to any other law or measure to limit abortions. I would say: prohibiting something is not enough, we must give life-affirmative choices, that is what being truly pro-life means. So, how we are going to make possible that women in vulnerable positions can give their child to adoption in a humanizing way? How we are going to make possible that all women ––including those pregnancies that happened in traumatic situations–– have the resources they need to affirm the dignity of all human lives in any circumstance, not only the dignity of their child’s life, but also the dignity of their own lives? It is just enough to oppose abortion: life must be affirmed in all circumstances.

Dear creative brothers and sisters: these are not easy questions, I am aware of that, but they are necessary questions that we must be brave enough to answer together as a nation if we want to create a society where everyone grows in communion, where everyone grows as a brother and a sister. This is not only the duty of a government: we, together as a society, must seek these answers together. We must ask ourselves, together, how to create the best society we can be: a society that stands unconditionally for everyone’s human rights. This is what true equality means: the unconditional recognition of everyone’s human rights, including the unborn. True empowerment, dear creative brothers and sisters, empowers life unconditionally, empowers both women and the unborn, empowers everyone as a human being and as a human society, and also promotes a human pride: the pride of recognizing everyone –––including the unborn––– as equal brothers and sisters of our human family, the pride of respecting human rights unconditionally, the pride of helping to grow everyone unconditionally as sons and daughters of the Creator, each one with an unconditional God-given dignity that must be respected by everyone, including you.

If we, creative brothers and sisters, have a problem with recognizing everyone’s human rights unconditionally, we have lost our most basic sense of all: our human sense. That is not “empowerment”: that is dehumanization. When dehumanization becomes systematic and socially accepted, it becomes social abortion ––selective dehumanization of some––, and then any civic sense ––any sense of being equal human beings, civilians building together a society open to all, where everyone grows in communion and makes possible that everyone can grow as a brother and as a sister–– is destroyed. Something is straight evident, dear creative brothers and sisters: dehumanization can never be a choice in a truly democratic society. Democracy stands upon the unconditional recognition of everyone’s human rights and the unconditional recognition of the dignity of every citizen as the brother or the sister he or she is called to be in our society. True democracy is not compatible with social abortion.

Allow me to be clearer, dear creative brothers and sisters: dehumanization can never be a legal choice in a truly democratic society. That has been one of the hardest questions I had made myself through as I became more and more conscious of all the dehumanization that was being enforced around me: how, exactly how, all the dehumanization enforced around me and my progenitor’s attempts to abort me socially had been done legally? I had always known why God has allowed all this, and I am immensely grateful for all the light I am being given the grace and gift to radiate, but I had never known how, exactly how, social abortion can be justified legally, if I am actually a citizen of a democratic society. Believe, an unborn child would ask the same questions, exactly the same if he or she could be able to: I am actually a citizen of a democratic society? How, exactly how, all the dehumanization enforced around me and my progenitors attempt to abort me had been done legally? Right now, I am their voice and share with everyone their questions.

Dear creative brothers and sisters, I am the living example of why no one can be given the power to dehumanize. What those governments that create heartbeat bills are doing is what we are all called to do as democracy, including you, your companies and your governments: affirm everyone’s human rights unconditionally, no matter in what developmental stage we are. I am the living example, dear creative brothers and sisters, of what happens when you give progenitors, doctors and public authorities the power to dehumanize someone else. I am the living example of what happens when you let ideologies rule biology and health choices, of what happens when families are ruled by ideologies and not by God’s plans, of what happens when public authorities ––including some in government positions–– serve ideologically and not democratically, of what happens when doctors serve ideologies instead of serving life and the person. I am the living example of why dehumanization can never be justified legally in a democratic society. Said in other words: social abortion can never be an option in a fraternal society… and that is precisely what you are trying to enforce with your economic boycotts and pro-abortion laws.

Please, believe this from someone who had been tried to be socially aborted during many years and that is very conscious that standing for what she believes and dreams ––according to God’s dreams––, a society where everyone can grow as a brother and a sister with unconditional freedom, equality, dignity, happiness, and love, can literally cost her life, something that I will be very happy and honored to do if God allows me to serve Him and my nation that way. I have no idea yet of which are going to be the consequences of all the drugs and toxins I have endured. All I know is that I would not change the gift of radiate God’s Love the way I am doing for anything in the world… but radiating God’s Love should not cost anyone what has cost me neither. No one should be socially aborted for any reason, and that includes the unborn.

I did not saw all this I am telling you since the very moment I realized I was being tried to be dehumanized. I needed time and space to process everything ––I mean, in the sense I could say to have “space” and “time” considering my circumstances, where all kind of attempts to void my personal space and my individuality were being attempted––. It was when I saw the movie “Unplanned” when I became especially conscious of the social abortion I was enduring. When Abby Johnson says: “I saw it, it was like it was twisting and fighting for his life…” Believe me: I had been twisting and fighting for being who I am during many, many, many years… and who knows, I may also fight for my life too, who knows… All I know, I repeat, is that I wouldn’t change the gift of radiating God’s Love the way I am doing it for anything in the world. The forgiveness and the light I had been granted the grace to give is something truly beautiful. I am literally giving birth to a new life for my people and my Nation that I never imagined I could be able to give. This is another example of life-affirmative choices: for God is not enough to say “the social abortion you have endured should have never happened” but He gave me the choice of giving a new life that has affirmed my humanity and who I am upon His eyes ––a Princess of Heaven–– so unconditionally that no matter how much it had been tried, there was no way I could be socially aborted… not even through death itself, because then I would go straight to heaven, straight to Him.

So, dear creative brothers and sisters, I ask you to reconsider carefully your statements about those “restrictive laws”. Maybe what is truly restrictive is your human sense and your civic sense: not considering that every human being has unconditional human rights that must be respected, including the human right of life; not considering that governments are called to make possible a society where everyone can grow as an equal, free, loved, happy citizen, with unconditional dignity. We cannot restrict humanity only to some. Humanity belongs to everyone, unconditionally, and everyone ––including governments, public celebrities and companies–– must act accordingly. Everyone must acknowledge everyone’s call and choice to grow with dignity and according to everyone’s inalienable human rights, including the unborn’s call to grow as brothers and sisters among us and to radiate the light that everyone is called to radiate to our humanity. If you only affirm the human rights of some, if you only affirm the growth choices of some, that, dear creative brothers and sisters, is “selective humanization”, or said in other words: social abortion. We all need to affirm everyone’s human rights, we all need to affirm everyone’s call to radiate a unique light to our humanity. This includes everyone: unborn persons, immigrant persons, homosexual persons, terminally-ill persons, little persons, big persons, poor persons, rich persons, disabled persons… because we are all persons, we are all brothers and sisters. A person is a human being, no matter what. A human being has human rights, no matter what. That is being person-affirming and life-affirming. Dehumanization denies to some persons growth choices that must be given to everyone, denies our nation the fraternal society that we are called to be and denies our world the humanity of peace that we are all called to radiate, so it should be illegal, no matter what, if we are a democracy.

Please, don’t see this just as a public relations crisis or even just as a business issue or a public policy issue. This can be an amazing opportunity to create a great debate in our nation, in our creative industries, in our businesses, in our states: what society we want to help to create with our companies, or with our influences, with our government? How do we help to create a society where everyone, absolutely everyone, can grow as the brother and the sister that we are all called to be? How do we create a culture of life that respect everyone’s human rights unconditionally? How we become the democracy we are called to be, a democracy that affirms all human rights of all unconditionally, a democracy that affirms everyone, unconditionally, as a human being?

As Walt Disney said: if you can dream it, you can do it. This is my dream, a dream I think we can all share and make possible together: a revolution of Love that makes possible that everyone can grow as a brother and a sister; that creates a culture of life where everyone can grow as we are all called to grow; that creates a nation of Love that grows in communion, where everyone can become the best person we can be; that creates a democratic society where everyone’s dignity is affirmed unconditionally; that creates a fraternal humanity, where we walk together in peace, with human pride…. that creates a humanity of light where we all grow as one family, a society of light where everyone grows in communion, as a human being with unconditional dignity, whose human rights are unconditionally recognized. Human rights are the living spirit of a democratic society and of a humanity that grows as a family!

Thank you very much for your attention, dear creative brothers and sisters. I hope I may have helped you to ponder better your true choices.

Remember: dehumanization can never be a choice in a democratic society. No one can be allowed to choose who is human enough to be granted the human right to life and who is not. No one can be granted the power to determines who is human, and who is not; whose human rights are recognized, and whose not. Our humanity and our unconditional call to grow together as brothers and sisters is our unconditional and most basic cultural heritage as human society. If a creative revolution ––a creative revolution to create the society we are called to be, a revolution of Love that helps everyone to grow as we are called to be, as the best persons we can be–– is needed in order to end any kind of dehumanization in our society, including social abortion, and make possible that everyone in our nation can grow as the brother and the sisters we are called to be… so be it.

So, let’s do this creative revolution together! Let’s make possible that the social abortion seen in the Holocaust, in the Rwandan Genocide, in the legal slavery of African American people, in the racial inequality fought by Martin Luther King… is never seen again on Earth. Let’s make possible the end of this unborn inequality: the lack of recognition of the human and social dignity of the unborn, the denial of their equal right to life due to their developmental stage. Let’s create together the society of light that we are called to be, a society where everyone can shine with human pride!

Truly yours,

Damaris
