The Hole in the Heart of RFK Jr.’s Extraordinary Book

Before getting to the “hole” in RFK Jr.’s new book, I would like to say that his brutal smackdown of the Dr. Anthony Fauci–Bill Gates vaccine oligarchy, The Real Anthony Fauci, is arguably the century’s most important book, and a page-turner on top of that. Buy it. Read it. If you choose not to, avoid holiday arguments with anyone who has. You will lose.

The book has real heart. There is no doubting Kennedy’s passion and sincerity. That heart, however, has a hole. I am inclined to trace the hole to the fact that RFK Jr. is, after all, a Kennedy. He is the son of a martyred father, the nephew of a martyred uncle, and also, unfortunately, the nephew of a self-serving U.S. senator who self-served much too long. On health issues, RFK Jr. speaks glowingly and frequently of Uncle Ted. That might be forgivable, at least under Cuomo family rules, had young Bobby not followed the lethal path his uncle blazed for their family, their party, and the nation.

If any one person could have prevented America’s 50-year reign of terror on the unborn, it was Ted Kennedy. He had the visibility and the power. He also had the moral backing of his Church. In a letter to a constituent dated August 3, 1971, Sen. Kennedy wrote, “When history looks back to this era it should recognize this generation as one which cared about human beings enough to halt the practice of war, to provide a decent living for every family, and to fulfill its responsibility to its children from the very moment of conception.”

If vaccines sometimes have adverse effects on “dark-skinned” people, abortions always do, certainly in the United States.

When the Democratic Party began chasing Planned Parenthood dollars, Kennedy had the potential to call a halt to the chase. Of course, he did not. He joined in. Soon enough, he had a 100 percent NARAL rating, as did most, if not all, of the family politicos. By the end of his career, Kennedy was publicly opposing a ban even on partial-birth abortion. Without any real explanation, he had shifted his position on the recognition of a baby’s civil rights from the “moment of conception” to the “moment of birth.” Comforted by Kennedy’s many finesses, Catholic Democrats turned a blind eye to the slaughter. As a result, in the nearly 50 years since Roe v. Wade, some 62 million American babies have been killed in the womb.

Kennedy’s nephew Robert is a wiser, braver man than his uncle. He has the courage to buck his family and his party on any number of subjects, including Planned Parenthood — a “neo-progressive organization” founded, he writes, by “the racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger to promote birth control and sterilization and to purge ‘human waste’ and ‘create a race of thoroughbreds.’ ”

The fact that Bill Gates and his father, Bill Gates Sr., have been affiliated with Planned Parenthood makes Kennedy suspicious, especially given their open support for “population control.” Although Kennedy himself admits to being concerned about overpopulation, he lashes out at Bill Jr.’s “apparent comfort in using coercive and mendacious tactics to trick poor people into dangerous and unwanted contraceptive programs.”

On the only occasion Kennedy uses the word “abortion” in the book, he scolds the World Health Organization (WHO) for one such program. As Kennedy relates, Catholic medical authorities had been accusing WHO of using various vaccines “to neuter dark-skinned women globally.” By 1976, WHO scientists had created a functional “birth control” vaccine. Here, Kennedy quotes WHO researchers boasting that their vaccine could induce “abortions in females already pregnant and/or infertility in patients not yet impregnated.” These same researchers noted as well that “repeated inoculations prolong infertility.” At WHO, coerced infertility was seen as a good thing. Kennedy obviously thinks otherwise.

Kennedy also condemns Fauci for funding the horrific University of Pittsburgh study in which scientists grafted “the scalps of aborted fetuses” on to mice and rats. Ironically, he calls out Fauci’s “sidekick and putative boss,” Francis Collins, for kicking in $1.1 million to the project, especially given that Collins “casts himself as a pious Catholic.” Bobby seems to forget that Uncle Ted also played the pious Catholic card, as have any number of prominent Democrats from Mario Cuomo to Nancy Pelosi to Joe Biden. Fauci, who attended the same Jesuit high school I did, now calls himself a “humanist.” That, of course, does not prevent our putatively Catholic alma mater from raising money on the Fauci connection.

The young Kennedy clearly respects the moral position of the Catholic Church on abortion, but he cannot bring himself to embrace it. Other than these two citations, he is mum on the subject. And for all his concern about the targeting of black and brown children for vaccine experiments, he chooses to overlook Planned Parenthood’s targeting of those same people for abortion.

If vaccines sometimes have adverse effects on “dark-skinned” people, abortions always do, certainly in the United States. Says the Guttmacher Institute, the research arm of the abortion industry, “This much is true: In the United States, the abortion rate for black women is almost five times that for white women.” Of course, Guttmacher, which is also supported by WHO, denies that the industry targets women of color. That said, abortion providers do a suspiciously good job of hitting the mark. In his next book, Kennedy might want to explore the “coercive and mendacious tactics” they use to achieve such unwitting accuracy.

Toward the book’s conclusion, Kennedy talks about his founding of Children’s Health Defense (CHD). “Our goal was to put an end to the epidemic of childhood disease arising from toxic exposures of all types, including some vaccines,” he writes. “CHD seeks to educate the public and hold bad actors accountable in order to help ensure a healthy future for our children.”

It is hard to imagine any exposure more “toxic” for a baby than to be vacuumed into oblivion or ripped apart by forceps. Calling the baby a “fetus” may salve the conscience of the abortion industry’s enablers, but it does not make the killing any more humane. Here is hoping that Bobby, upon seeing the irony, expands the CHD franchise to “children from the very moment of conception.”
