HOW SCIENTOLOGY COERCED A CHILD TO HAVE AN ABORTION: THE LAURA DECRESCENZO FILES

HOW SCIENTOLOGY COERCED A CHILD TO HAVE AN ABORTION: THE LAURA DECRESCENZO FILES

—————- In anticipation of her biggest day in court yet, Laura DeCrescenzo and her attorneys hit the Church of Scientology with 928 pages of new filings —————- Details from 18,000 pages of evidence show how Scientology manipulated a child to keep her working under slave-like conditions —————- A key document describing DeCrescenzo’s unwillingness to have her coerced abortion is missing from the evidence Scientology was ordered to produce By Tony Ortega Wednesday afternoon, Laura DeCrescenzo filed explosive new information in her four-year legal odyssey against the Church of Scientology, submitting 928 pages of new declarations and exhibits in anticipation of a crucial October 23 hearing in her lawsuit against the church which alleges abuse, including allegations that she was forced to have an abortion at only 17 years of age. Key to the new filings is information gleaned from thousands of pages of previously secret files that the church fought mightily to keep under wraps. But on Monday, the U.

Scientology Sunday Funnies: Fundraising Mailers Galore!

UKJacket1On Sundays, we enjoy revealing to you the latest mailers and fliers that our tipsters have forwarded to us. We call it Sunday Funnies after the weekly ritual that dear Grandad enjoyed in this thing they used to call a “newspaper.”

This week, we have lots of items from around the world. So grab a cup of coffee, throw that tab of butter on a stack of pancakes, and enjoy Sunday morning as we learn about the new ways Scientology is begging for money.

Up first: We’re having flashbacks to May, when the last Scientology “Ideal Org” was opened in Portland, Oregon, and our man Mark Bunker was on the scene. We asked then which city would be next in line for a grand opening, and we suspected the next Ideal Org dedication might take place in Taiwan.

We were right, but we had no idea it was coming up so soon!

Considering how much fun we had relaying reports from Oregon in May and from the Super Power Building grand opening in Clearwater, Florida two weeks ago, is it too much to ask for a few Taiwanese readers to let us know what’s happening in Kaohsiung?

 
KaohsiungIdealOrg

 
Meanwhile, things are booming in England — how can you keep from joining Ron’s team at Saint Hill!

 
StHill

 
Can you think of another church that needs to recruit for a “Technical Training Corps”?

 
TTC

 
At least in San Diego, the Golden Age of Technology Phase II is packing them in!

 
SDGatII

 
We’ll have more to say about the new Ultra Mark VIII e-meters, but for now, just marvel at these new features!

 
MarkUltra8

 
Hey, Ryan Beaty forked over a buttload of money to show up on this flier, and he gets an LRH quote which means…what, exactly?

Hey, they finally got a photograph of a body thetan!

And finally, let’s hear it for Austin Kane, who kept blowing charge Down Under.

Thanks again to our tipsters. Keep those items coming!

    wow listen to this lecture by LRH. His own audience is laughing at him. Hes ranting basically off the deep end or really fucking high….

    http://youtu.be/vd1v7K5CsT4

    • Barbara Angel

      Probably High and Mad, not a good combination at all. Yet he was able to Con Millions of innocent people. How sad is that?

      • ozzybud420

        These days Im past the initL LOLS and as I chat with ppl who were in I actually feel bad for them especially the born-in SeaOrgers! But this is just pure jokes right here. Very sad he is still conning people from the grave!

        • Great White Clam

          He be probly tripping his arse off, cranked up, leveled out with a mixture of chloral hydrate, cocaine and rum, pumped full of vistarile and other drugs. High as a flippin doornail.

        • Barbara Angel

          Same here ozzybud, I think the lure was ‘saving the planet’. It sounds good to any community minded person, thank God I didn’t have any money or ever came in contact with $cos although I met an old lady who did. Milked of all their money in England, came home Broke and disillusioned to Aus and their family treated them badly. They both died poor and lonely. It’s not funny at all. This is one of the reasons I love making fun of Dildo Dave and his gang. Laughter is a good way of dealing with the pain and outrage of shocking behaviour.

    • Verve

      Wow.

  • Robert Eckert

    Somebody linked one of Tony Ortega’s bylined stories yesterday, but how is it that nobody noticed this other one? Tony got to write a headline of the sort that few journalists get to utter:

    “No, Daily Mail: Humans did not come from outer space or from monkeys f*cking pigs”

    http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/11/30/no-daily-mail-humans-did-not-come-from-outer-space-or-from-monkeys-fcking-pigs/

      Chromosomes, shromosomes…
      Did you watch this documentary?!

    • SopranoAscends

      Wow.

    • Bury_The_Nuts

      Thanks, that was so much fun to read.

      • Robert Eckert

        PZ Myers must have given him the bug for debunking dumb pseudoscience.

    • Verve

      “Monkey f*cking pigs.”
      Um, no, we don’t.
      Though I did enjoy the fight between Snow_Monkeys and Lindsay.

    Thanks to everyone reading this morning’s embarrassing SOS, I’m more than half way there. You people are the greatest! Something LRH and CoB$ could NEVER be!

    Just in case, my PPal is at kjpportland at jee maele.

    My family thanks all of you. Me? I’m too thankful for words…

    G: If you made it here, it’s easy to set up a Disqus ID. Look around for something that says “You need a Disqus ID” and click on it and make ID!

    • Ginger Sugerman

      What benefit would it have to have an ID ? Personally I want them to see what I write. Any pointers why I shouldn’t be happy about that ?

      • KJP in Portland

        Many prefer to be anonymous in here, and for good reason. You have exes, never-ins, indies and people with family still in. What is said here stays here too. I was just concerned for you. See? you know my REAL name but I have a nickname over here.

      • Eivol Ekdal

        Ginger – I see you signed in with your Facebook account. So you can click through your profile to your FB page. You may want to tighten up FB privacy settings to restrict who can see your Friends.

        • KJP in Portland

          OOOPS…I didn’t look that far. Again, your choice (I’d tighten it up and I’m not sure right offhand how to do that. Ekdal might know how),

        • Ginger Sugerman

          Hi Eivol. appreciate that suggestion. I have no clue how to hide others from seeing my friends as I’m still learning. How do you do that on FB ?

  • Ginger Sugerman

    I made it !! Woo Hoo I’m a new kid on the block here !

        Thank you !!! I’d rather have Lurkness than guess who ? LOL CO$

    • KJP in Portland

      There you are! Welcome to the deep, mysterious Bunker! (someone can help you change your nickname; COS is all over this page lurking)

      • Ginger Sugerman

        I don’t care if they see me. They have OSA goons following me for years now !!! Now they know I’m ready !!!! Bring it on !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        • KJP in Portland

          I admire your pluck! I think your state has pretty strict anti-stalking laws too. Use them!

          • Ginger Sugerman

            They are real slick !!! I recently read the leaked document OSA made on how to get airline info on someone’s airline ticket !! Now I know why and how mine was jacked with last week!! Blew my mind !!! But, now I understand !!!

              Ginger’s son is still ‘in’. He disconnected. She wants her son back. The rest I’ll leave to her book, or her posts.

            • DodoTheLaser

              Ginger is writing a book?

            • KJP in Portland

              She’s putting some sort of compilation together. Mentioned videos, too! She is one of our biggest ‘catches’ at the Bunker in some time.

    I’m in the process of getting help to write it all up. Derek is going to help me. I sent him a PM today for a time to get it done. He is a jewel. I knew him and his family, they used to come over for dinner. His dad was my last FSM.

  • Ginger Sugerman

    I’m also going to do a Video with another regarding my mom!!! Such a sad story !!!

  • Ginger Sugerman

    I’m still learning the ropes on here. Sorry ahead of time If I miss anyone’s comments or make mistakes as I’m learning. But so happy to be around Ex Scientologists.

  • Ginger Sugerman

    I haven’t talked to my son in over a year !! NOT OKAY COB !!!

  • Ginger Sugerman

    I couldn’t believe that when I last saw my son he was so excited and said ” Mom I met with the Sea Org and they are going to back my music career ” I said in my head WTH, knowing that would never happen and they were doing indoctrination on him !! Use of the love he has for music. !! SHAME ON THEM !! Here is a little more of that visit !! I had just seen my son a few months prior noticed right across from my balcony was an empty condo I looked more and there was a camera set up inside one of the rooms pointed right at my balcony. I asked the Real Estate agent selling the condo if anyone should be in there ? He said no, and if you see someone call the police! I had strange incidents prior to that since 2009. I moved overnight from that location to a new one. My next home. My son called me said he was coming back out for another visit. I said how since your dad ( New OT 7 still in Terry Lawler ) pays for your ticket. He responded ” This company paid for it “. I asked what company and he wouldn’t tell me. I came out of the restroom and couldn’t find him. There were three bedrooms on that floor and my patio. I opened a closed bedroom door and heard ” Write a report on your mom “. !!!!! My son was on Skype with an OT3 named Andre. I grabbed that laptop and we had a conversation I won’t get into on here. It will all and more be in the final story. The company this Andre works for is called Rising Cloud it promotes music career’s and does recording and such for artists in music. Rising Cloud is on the web and my son is there as well on the site. Unbenounced to me my son had already showed this guy the entire backside of my location !! I asked my son why ? He said Andre told him he had never seen mountains before !! BULL !! So, my son was sent to my home to be used to locate me again !!!!! I keep logs so after reviewing them I now knew that every location I’ve moved to my son has led them to it without even knowing it ! HE WOULD NEVER HARM ME OR DO THAT KNOWINGLY !!! The night my son was there he gave his dad my P.O. Box address. The next morning I went to my mail box and a guy is snapping pictures of me getting my mail !!!!!! It has been one wild ride. I have moved 8-9 times since 2007. I’ve changed my phone number over and over again. NOW IM DONE !!! Follow at will you GOONS !!!! I’ll try to make sure I look real cute daily so my pics look great !!! LOLOLOLOLOL

  • Ginger Sugerman

    My mother is Barbara Ayash as I mentioned prior! The Church loved her as long as she was making money for them !!! Many, many years !! She wasn’t in the Sea Org. As soon as my mom was older and no longer able to be a cash registrar feeding the CO$, they acted as if she didn’t exist, left her like a bad habit on the side of the road to rot ! I had not seen her for years, we were the only two people in our immediate family that were in Scio. I was sent a letter by Frank Zurn TWTH Executive to no longer have any contact with my mom. Her and I worked together for 6 year or more (?) Her company was called Concerned Businessmen’s Association of America. SAGE Fdn. ( Foundation she created ) was the umbrella over it and over the contest she developed called The Children’s Set A Good Example Contest. My mother has Dementia now and is in a home to be taken care of. I waited until she could no longer be harassed with a knock on the door by any church members. Now I have come fully and made my announcement couple of weeks ago to ASHO. Now the real work begins !! ha ha …What is very odd to me is that my mother when I visited her ( prior to her fully blown current state ) stated SHE didn’t want the church having her contest period ! Other family members know that as well !! The next thing I knew when I searched the contest is its now under TWTH site and looks as if they own it, created it and my mother is mentioned NO WHERE ! I wonder what happened to the over 52 proclamations she earned ? And more ? I’m checking around and have others helping me research and do things as I can’t do it all ! Funny that a Scio member by the name of Michael Jenung came out to see my mom one week before my arrival !! But my aunt said he hadn’t been around for a long time. Such interesting timing eh ? LOL I’d love some help if anyone can. I need to find out how they got her program !!! Any ideas ? When I last laid in bed with her on my visit she had a bible next to her bed and these were her words!! ” I’ve had a bible next to my bed for a long time and I pray each night before I go to sleep but don’t tell anyone please ~!!! I laid next to her and we prayed together as I promised her I wouldn’t tell. Poor thing was so worried the church or someone would find out she was praying like her own mom taught her when she was little. More to come later when I do the full story and video. I’m so happy to be out of the Church and will NEVER return as long as I live this lifetime or any other.

        Time for you or her to set up a PayPal account. I WILL MAKE A MONTHLY CONTRIBUTION. Only $30 a month after rent? That’s obscene! I hope she has Meals on Wheels at least, but how does California let that happen? Why aren’t they giving her a rent subsidy LIKE ALL THE ILLEGAL ALIENS!

      • Ginger Sugerman

        Your very welcome. Another video by Karen should be out soon. I am seeking help for her care. Since the CO$ didn’t help her I’m hoping others outside the CULT will. Can I send you the link for her donation site ?

        • And I don’t rent cars!

          And in different time zones – to confuse me further and to confuse other people in other parts of the world in different time zones as well!

          P.S. And let’s not even mention that I get confused sometimes with having two (or three versions of Tony’s post up… and one set to “Newest” and the other to “Best” and sometimes, in desperately trying to find someone’s post to respond to, set to “oldest.”

          It can become quite “a trip” or feel “other worldy” – especially with an undiagnosed brain injury from a severe concussion!

          But then it gets so-o confusing, it becomes fun and funny!
          ;-)

      • And I don’t rent cars!

        I just finished a middle of the night post to you and to check up on how things were going for you… 24 hours after your original post and my reply to it.

        Hang on to your boots KJP. You are going to have a hell a ride today! And an emotionally rollercoaster ride too! But because so many good things are to happen to you, be promised and come through later for you and good news has already come your way in the past 24+ hours AND the best is yet to come my dear.
        How do I know this? I don’t know… And I’m frying my brains out trying to understand what the hell is happening to me as I feel compelled to guide you through what is happening to you since our first post exchange 24 hours ago.
        If you understand it all some day, this mysterious “process” I keep talking about, could you please explain to me what the hell it is that I’m so frantically trying to explain to you and why it feels so urgent to me that I do so…
        Anyway, good luck today. (But it’s coming…)
        Cars
        P.S. As the old expression goes, “Write when you find work!” (meaning, in your case, write when you have the time to tell us you got the new job and are not too busy receiving all the magic and “gifts” you’ll be getting today and in the weeks to come.
        (Hugs!)

        I don’t know why nor do

      Welcome, Ginger. I read through your posts. $ci at its greatest. I have a Monkey Horde you can borrow if you want to see the stalking goons running away from shrieking monkeys. :D

    ONE FINAL TIME FOR THE NIGHT CREW (SOS)

    Sorry I have bad news, I am in the cusp of being hired and our cell phones are turned off, electric, cable, internet are next. I was laid off for lack of work on the past job I had for a whole whopping 4 weeks. I’ve never been this depleted in my life. I’m on the cusp of getting 2 job offers as early as Monday. I just couldn’t bridge the cap. That’s what doing 2 years of unemployment did to me.

    I made it as far as I could. Now I don’t know which way to turn. I have a lifetime of being generous. If only I had some of all that back. I have to go to VA and beg for rent money for January. I am so dispirited. I thought I’d get the offer for a job by now, but they’re family owned and taking over 2 1/2 weeks now. I even passed all their private investigator background checks.

    Never in 30+ years have I been in such a dire situation. I’m so embarrassed I’m just going to go offline and see where the hell I can come up with about $500 for emergency ‘keep the lights running.

    I’m so embarrassed. I just wanted to vent. I have applied to over 800 jobs since July. Had a few great interviews, but I am getting A LOT of age discrimination and gender discrimination in my field of accounting. Even being a 10% disabled veteran doesn’t matter to most these private companies.

    I’m sorry to vent. I’ve never been in a bad corner like this in my life. NOTHING is funny anymore.

      I thought you were going to VA and places peoples found in your area that can help you this week? And someone had a cell phone for you? Did you get enough donations to cover things yet? Almost?

      Need more coffee…must….tweet…..

      • KJP in Portland

        I had a few really cool people donate. I’m just over the halfway on the phone and internet bills. The VA will help with the power bill. It just sucks my wife let our utilities get 3 months behind. Then, the cellphone went out and I asked WTF??? I need this for a job. Never again is she handling the utilities (everything) once I get this straightened out. My target date on her is 6 months after I get back to work (this week, please!). I can’t take another 6 yrs. of her lying, no intimacy, constantly arguing and saying “everything’s fine” with the bills. No more after this…

        But I had several people help, and I am going to try and pay everyone back, it’s just in my morals. I don’t like to go on and owe someone anything. This was the last time I was going to parrot that. I think I’ll be able to get the phones back on.

        I have to call either the VA or HUD about electricity assistance later today. I only need the help maybe 1 or 2 months. Then, all things should be back to even again.

        Thanks for being cool and asking. I’m looking forward to my daily dose of Tia’s Tweets! (You should compile them all in a book) You’ll have enough by then.

        • Miss Tia

          You should have no problem getting help with rent and electric. Also if cells are your only phone, as long as there’s no internet on them, you should qualify for the lifeline program (I don’t think there is a program that will pay the bill, same with internet bill—so you might want to take donations to pay on your internet and cell phone bills, cover things that places won’t, ya know?).

          The VA might help more than you know!! A friend would go, as I said before, and take advantage of them (they didn’t need help) and she got A LOT of assistance. Lay all your cards on the table and you might be surprised! Contact the other places AFTER you see what the VA can/cannot do for you–as I’m sure they’ll refer you to the VA, so start with them.

          I’m sorry your wife did that and is like that. :( Believe me, EVERYTHING WILL WORK OUT!!!!! And as I said yesterday, it’s not a hand out by anyone, but a hand UP! Do not feel shame! I know you are grateful!! ((HUGS))

          Best start tweeting….had some ‘brewing’ and I believe I am ready! :)

          • KJP in Portland

            I do get a whopping 129 a month for my shot right ear from the flight deck from the VA! And they’ve been my medical for almost 2 years. So they have been a help. I’m calling Oregon Dept of Veterans Affairs first. They have several programs (as long as there’s money left in the budget). Then I will go to VA and American Legion too.

              i have a neighbor, whom we all call asshole or sometimes captain asshole….he was in the air force….he LIES about what he did in the air force—he was a mechanic (there’s zero shame in that, that’s a vital job) but he tells everyone he was a fighter pilot!!!! he tells everyone he has PTSD from bombing iraN (people try to correct him to iraq but no iran)…..a neighbor looked up his record and he never even went to the middle east, he stayed in texas as a mechanic…..anyway, captain asshole, claims he gets $8000 a month from the VA for his PTSD!!! and yet here you are, with a shot right ear getting $129……i’ll make sure to give captain asshole the finger today while thinking of you!!!

              don’t forget to contact those other places people found!! catholic charities i think was one and a couple other places…..do NOT be ashamed!!! they are there to help people!!! when you get back on your feet you can always make a donation to those places!!!

              ((HUGS))….oh look captain asshole is out back smoking…..middle finger tech is gonna be activated!!! :D

            • And I don’t rent cars!

              Give a finger salute to the captain for me! ;-)

            • Miss Tia

              will do!!! :)

          • And I don’t rent cars!

            I am repeating everything Miss Tia said. Only to add, if people didn’t ask you to pay them back, just say thank you and then you can “pay it forward”: like you used to.

            Remember, the process works this way: Don’t pay back unless asked to. Instead pay it forward when someone is in need and you can afford to “pay it forward” at that moment.

            As I and others has also said: You don’t need money to pay it forward. Just your time, your efforts, your shoulder for someone to lean on or cry on, useful info they can use, a smile, an attentive ear for them to talk into, etc., etc.

            Things will really work out for you and your family – the process has already started for you here in the Bunker in the past 24 – 26+ hours! Remember?!

            Wishing and sending more magic your way….

          KJP, I thought I sent you this message this morning, Monday, Dec 2, 2013, @ 05:00 EST. I sent it to Miss Tia by mistake. For what it’s worth, here is copy of it. I still haven’t had time to go to Tony O’s post of today and check to see if you posted any news (“great” news, I’m hoping) about your rapidly changing and evolving situation. It is now, 17:40 EST and I probably won’t be able to do so until 21:00 EST or later. I simply can hardly wait to see what has been happening today! :-)

          ********************************************************************************************************

          THE POST I SENT TO MISS TIA BY MISTAKE:

          I am repeating everything Miss Tia said to you. Only to add, if people didn’t ask you to pay them back, just say thank you and then you can “pay it forward” at a later and better time in your life – like you used to.

          Remember, the process works this way: Don’t pay back unless asked to. Instead pay it forward when someone is in need and you can afford to “pay it forward” at that moment in your life.

          As I and others have also said: You don’t need money to pay it forward. Just your time, your efforts, your shoulder for someone to lean on or cry on, useful info they can use, a smile, an attentive ear for them to talk into, etc., etc.

          Things will really work out for you and your family – the process has already started for you here in the Bunker in the past 24 – 26+ hours! Remember?! *(EDIT @ 17:47 EST: Due to my posting error this morning, it would now be 34 – 36+ hours.)*

          Wishing and sending more magic your way….

          *EDIT and ANOTHER REMINDER TO SELF: Cars, Do Not Post in Bunker before filling up on high octane fuel (caffeine) nor before your “engine” is warmed up and ready to go!!! Sigh….

    • And I don’t rent cars!

      The best is yet to come for you…. as I have repeatedly said to you over the past 26+ hours.

      Keep us posted about your good news and magical experience – if you don’t suddenly get too busy! ;-)

    That’s right! If you want a sane world, then you must believe in an evil intergalactic warlord called Xenu of the Galactic Confederacy who 75 million years ago brought billions of his people to Teegeeack, AKA Earth, in a spaceship and stacked them around volcanoes and killed them using hydrogen bombs, causing the R6 implant.

    Yep, that’s sanity right there.

    • Verve

      Sanity is a sliding scale…

  • IBBy

    wtf am I doing up so early? oh right. 2 dogs on the bed meant way too hot and sleeping in awkward positions. who needs sleep anyway? thats crazy talk.

    • KJP in Portland

      My puppy is a furnace!

      • IBBy

        my two decided sleeping crosswise on the bed in the exact middle was the best option. usually I only have one, but with mom out of town I get both for the next week. yay.

        • DodoTheLaser

          Protekting you and your bedz. That’s why!

            since we’re sharing doggy pix….here’s my 2 hooligans…..

            • Nevermore

              I’m not a dog person, but I would happily give any of these guys a treat or two!

            • Miss Tia

              Aw thanks!! They would happily take the treats too!! Especially Poliahu in the back!! :)

            • And I don’t rent cars!

              Same here! I would feed them, give them treats, water and scratch them behind the ears or stroke them anywhere on their bodies that would give them pleasure! All of them! Even all of them at once (I think).

              In fact, although I always had a dog growing up, I now usually react like your Van Gogh “The Scream” avatar – especially if there are two dogs and they are large!

              It doesn’t seem to matter if they are running towards me to happily greet me or are running to me to devour me… or are simply leashed to their owners and they are simply looking at me with curiosity or interest!

              But these doggies seem different. Probably because I “know” their owners from time spent in the Bunker and reading their posts, I find all these doggies friendly looking and simply loveable (like their owners). ;-)

  • Sydjazz

    Small print from sydney org. “Joining scientology staff is a religious commitment and all activities are entirely voluntary. Scientology is a religious philosophy and offers total freedom” what a crock of sh@t!

    • KJP in Portland

      I saw that fine print…BOGUS!

    • aquaclara

      Isn’t this something? It’s saying, “Don’t worry. We’re not really a cult!”

  • Donut

    Tony has a new post up. Hop to it Bunkerites.

  • Shannon

    I lived in San Diego before moving down under and took a bus past that org almost every day. The front room with all the books was always empty and the parking lot in the back would be 1/3rd full with four staff members on the street smoking. That “surge” looked to be about 20 people. Rough.

    I know what he means about blowing charge for 24 hours after the Golden Bleck II event.. I had the same problem after those pix of Scarlett Johansson came out…

  • Imagica

    Not sure I want to know how someone blows charge… but unfortunately I have a Scientology dictionary…

    Never in my life have I seen so many smiling white people.

    “Move up in status” at a “CHURCH” ? HUH? Isn’t everyone “equal”

  • Strelnikov

    O San Diego…..

    They were going to have an Ideal Org in La Mesa (a town in San Diego county east of the southern part of SD), the former Coleman College property at 7380 Parkway Drive. CoS-SD bought the property in 2008 for $9 million, sold it for less than that to some developers this year and they are demolishing the buildings as I write these words. They regged everybody in SD county to either convert or demolish the buildings and they sold out ANYWAY. The neighbors in that area are furious because the new “townhome” project will increase traffic.
