The following comes from a July 23 report on LifeSiteNews.com.
As a rookie NBA star, J.J. Redick signed a confidentiality agreement promising ex-girlfriend Vanessa Lopez that if she would abort their baby, he would agree to date her for one year or pay her $25,000.
On September 13, 2007, he and the model signed a “Statement and Confidentiality Agreement” sketching their future relationship, and the future of their unborn child.
“Whereas LOPEZ has asserted she is pregnant, that REDICK is the putative father, and that LOPEZ has decided to terminate her pregnancy…once LOPEZ has terminated said pregnancy and has provided medical proof of said termination satisfactory to REDICK,” the two “shall attempt to establish and maintain a social and/or dating relationship between themselves for a period of one year from the date of this agreement,” said the agreement.
“In the event that the foregoing establishes that LOPEZ was either not pregnant or did not terminate the pregnancy, REDICK shall have no further obligations hereunder.”
If Redick decided he did not want to establish a relationship after her abortion, “he shall pay LOPEZ the sum of” $25,000.
She, too, could opt out of the relationship, in writing, with no financial penalty.
If the two tried to date but it did not work out, there would be no penalty for the break-up.
The website MediaTakeOut.com obtained a copy of the legal document, signed when Redick was a 22-year-old rookie. He did not admit paternity.
Redick, now 29, plays shooting guard for the Los Angeles Clippers. He has played for the Milwaukee Bucks, Orlando Magic, and for Duke University, where he was the all-time leading scorer.
Lopez, who is a model, has been romantically linked with fellow NBA stars Delonte West, Kenyon Martin, and Shaquille O’Neal, who was married at the time of their tryst.
She accused O’Neal of breaking off their affair after learning she may have been pregnant, and then sued him for alleged harassment. She was represented by pro-abortion feminist lawyer Gloria Allred.
In June, a judge dismissed her lawsuit against Shaq with prejudice, noting she “lied often” and “demonstrated an utter disrespect for the system of justice.”

They’ committing the buying and selling of a baby’s life. Trafficking in human babies … isn’t that a felony worth several decades in prison? What about the lawyer who wrote up the contract … prison time also?
Skai you bring up excellent points. I agree with you and your anger against this is admirable. Wish more would have the same backbone and convictions as you display to this….there would be less abortions and more common sense and decency in our current laws.
“Convictions” might be amplified by fasting, which of course is the job of priests and nuns. They have slacked off, leaving it to the faithful members of the laity. The balance of self deprivation in the Church is messed up because of it.
Unless she truly repents 25k will buy her a prime location in HELL, the same for “Shock Jock Reddick”!

I do not pay much attention to professional sports anymore, and one of the reasons is the total pieces of gutter scum to be found among players and coaches.
Right on! Too many “heroes” in our “society” are depraved creatures that serve Satan and themselves. I’m lumping jocks, cops, teachers, politicians, firefighters, military officers, and even some clergy in this catagory…have I left out any? It’s a far cry from the 50’s when I was a naive child believing that these “heroes” hadn’t already taken the stamp…many had. All Christian denominations have to stop excusing their followers’ determined lifestyles of sinning shamelessly, and spell out the repurcussions of doing so. Christ, return soon!
These two characterless characters are more perverted than the Castro District crowd. And Allred is a demoniac; she is in effect pimping these two souls.
I agree Skai. This is very appalling. Women and men have cheapen up life and even have so little self respect and chastity.
This week I was shopping for a modest dress to wear to a wedding that I will (God willing) be attending this weekend. I saw a pretty white dress with peach flowers design from discount teens shop. I asked the sales lady (she looked like in her mid 20’s) if this was nice enough for a wedding. She replied “oh you can’t wear that, it is mostly white and it is disrespectful to wear white to a wedding” I replied that it was not all white and why was it disrespectful? She said “it just is, its tradition”…so she directed me to another dress that didn’t have white. Then something prompted me to say “it’s strange but today, brides wear white even when they are not virgins and many are shacking up first before they get married.” She laughed so hard and even giggled as if she did that….”she said it doesn’t matter, the rules still apply.” Then I said “wow really…..I guess I must be some kind of rebel then. ”
What my point is Skai is that common decency is lost, there is no more shame in sin. But of course, this is involving an innocent baby. It is much more serious and harmful…..
Jesus came to pick up all the pieces and put them back together again. When society gives its life over to kings instead of to the King, then it begins to crumble just like ol’ Humpty Dumpty.
Skai, you may find this humorous about 2 years I nearly ran over the demon Allred as she dashed out of a cab in Kennedy airport departure area. She gave me this glare, I gave her the Bronx salute …
I am chuckling. Oddly, the neighbors who moved out last year were related to Allred … all four adult kids are on again off again ex cons of the tweeker kind. Constant gaggles of black and white units w/ helicopters dealing with them. Around here you can always tell when the dope activity sneaks into the neighborhood, because you then have to put up with the sub woofer racket, and that’s when the squad car patrols begin to rove around on a regular basis. Eventually it all gets … regulated … and peace and springtime once again alight on our little part of the world.
You’re lucky she didn’t give you the evil eye, Canisius. You were much more polite that I would have been. I would have given her the Ohio salute, which I used to much effect whilst visiting in Seattle with insoucient jay walkers who foolishly strolled ever so slowly in front of my car. Needless to say, when they land from their brief sojourn three feet up, I’m well on my way with a smile and a wave. Toot! Toot!
Dana you have a quirky attitude…I like it….it may be fun having you as one of my neighbors…at least you could bring me some more smiles. Ohio Salute, hmm I wonder what that looks like, I didn’t even know what the Bronx salute is…to be honest I would imagine the Bronx salute meant the middle finger but am I wrong? I wonder what the California salute would be? Maybe I shouldn’t ask….hahaha lol
Skai you started off with a teaching from the scripture about the real King but then ended up with a nursery theme in the humpty dumty but it makes sense….it does add clarity…. : )
Had you hit her, she and “Catholic” Gray Davis were goading the police on Holy Saturday 1989 at Westmoreland when they broke my wrist, my elbow, and later we found that they had also destroyed the 4th and 5th Discs in my back, well you could have sued her for endangering you by not looking both ways before exiting the cab. That indeed would have been interesting.
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

All I have to say is, “LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL!
These men use her and she allows herself to be used. She is so young and already messing up her life. I pray for God’s mercy upon her and may He help her turn away from sin before it destroys her further.
This is a relationship made in hell!
Has Gloria Allred ever represented anyone who actually had a case?
She plays for the cameras, like an Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. So
now, for some unfathomable reason she makes public a private pact
with the devil himself. Disgusting !
Gloria almost always gets her way. Think about how she torpedoed Meg Whitman.
This isn’t sad…it’s sick…
Both….it’s sad that they have this mentality and sick too. Sad because a child died or will die because of their decision to murder and sick because it’s legal.
How is this not murder by contract?
Because abortion is not murder under law. Not too complicated.
There are cases where unborn babies killed in accidents or assaults are counted as murder, and the causing party convicted and/or litigated successfully. So, depending on the jurisdiction, this contract could be illegal. Such a contract could violate some law other than conspiracy to commit murder, such as a kind of slavery or kidnapping, or extortion.
Really? Then write the district attorney with jurisdiction in Florida and urge him/her to indict Reddick. While you’re at it, cite the statutory charge. Let’s get real.
Exactly Tom but since abortion is legal and this woman approved, well their argument is that it is her choice and her body. Disgusting. But if a lawyer really wanted to test the waters on this one, he/she can try to see if he can press charges on behave of the unborn.
May God show mercy on your souls. They represent the millions of Americans whom are lost and searching for something more meaningful. I know because I was one of them. Pick up the Rosary and ask our Mother for help and your lives will change.
I hope they both rot in hell. Murder and greed. What a combo!
Nothing more to be said
I will not change my comment. Do post it, if you are afraid. I still have my thoughts.
We can and should asks for God’s justice, but never wish Hell on anyone! Warn them of the dangers of Hell, yes, wish it on them, NO!
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

Kenneth, I know Gloria Allred did you great harm, but I hope you will offer it up and pray for her. According to Wikipedia, she said she was raped in Acupulco at gun point, got pregnant from the rape, had an illegal abortion, got an infection and ended in the hospital. She might of had the illegal abortion in Mexico. It does not say. That probably was the source of her raging at you, although it was unjust. When men rape, they not only hurt the woman, but any child of the rape often and most often many, many, innocent people whom they do not even know. It just tells us how our serious sins can affect others so badly.
On the other hand, there have been men and women in the pro abortion movement who have lied about some women getting raped, so they could avoid bearing any responsiblity for a pregnancy or to get stronger pro abortion legislation put through as the late Dr. Bernard Nathanson and Norma McCorvey admitted. Their lies too cause a horrible amount of problems for society, especially for women who have really been raped and children killed by abortion.
Never heard of this player until this sorrowful article. I’ll be sure to boo him the next time the Warriors play this murderous man.
just when you thought you heard it all something else comes slithering from under the rocks. What kind of a man is redick? What a jerk.
Yeah, he is pretty rotten, no doubt. I’ll remember to boo him heartily as well. Gravely sinful act!
I have to agree with you on this buddha is laughing. It seems that Gloria Allred was raped at gunpoint according to what she says she experienced, and she got an illegal abortion from the rape. We need to pray for her as she has done a few good things, but this certainly is not one of them. She seems to forget in her rage that it IS a child that is being killed here. There is no excuse for the couple involved, though. It seems to be all about money.
I thought he was already married to Chelsea Kilgore.
Yeah, this guy is no good…what kind of man would this?…reprehensible, pure and simple
I too pretty much agree w/what Skai has posted, and pretty much for the same reasons. One of the most disturbing things for me going on in American contemporary life is this CONSTANT emphasis from the secularized culture on sports, especially professional sports. For it’s obvious that for a very long time now, what really drives the professional sports toxic mania is love for the almighty DOLLAR. And the more doping through steroids, the better, because of the pursuit of said almighty dollar. What happened to the passage in Scripture that admonished, “the LOVE of money is the ROOT of all EVIL?” So it’s true across the societal spectrum, isn’t it? Sports, the entertainment complex, government (bigtime!), even the arts and yes, even religion: follow the money trail for they’ve ALL been hugely corrupted by the LUST for riches. That is why, I believe, we’re hearing so much from new Pope Francis about a SMALLER, less RICH and SIMPLER Catholic Church. Because the combined assaults of St Agustine’s famous configuration of THE WORLD, THE FLESH AND THE DEVIL have become so in-your-face, the ONE TRUE CHURCH needs to step back and FIGHT these famous evils with a NEW PURITY of purpose. Free from the taints of the world, and as free as possible from the taints of the flesh (in a notoriously fallen world, made even more so by the inroads made by the demonic), the devil so extant today in ALL SOCIETIES, (see remarks re the flesh), Catholicism can begin in earnest the COUNTERREVOLUTION sorely needed today against ALL THREE of these Augustinian entities. And the Pope’s journey to Rio and Brazil may just be the OPENING SALVO of that desperately needed counterrevolution. Now, for me, outside of the holocaust generated worldwide through legalized abortion muder, the GREATEST DANGER facing ALL societies in what’s left of the West is the uber- frenzied luciferian thrust by gayreich homosodomism to “legalize” “gay” marriage (OXYMORONISM) by EITHER amending of CONSTITUTIONS OF VARIOUS COUNTRIES WORLDWIDE or amending of as many State constitutions, like in the U.S., as possible, in order to give the heinous practice a veneer of “legal poitivism.” Finally, in America, we NEED a NEW third party, and need it now. Sarah Palin has recently signed on to this concept, possible giving it a name: THE FREEDOM PARTY. Personally, I’d call it the THE J.C. FREEDOM PARTY (J.C. being Judeo-Christian) Any takers? GOD BLESS ALL, MARKRITE
“Ariel Castro, the Cleveland man found several months ago to have imprisoned four women he abducted a decade ago and, was charged Friday with an additional 648 criminal counts. Castro now faces 977 charges against him, including one of aggravated murder.”
Look at the diabolical disorientation or the alternating lunacy of our legal justice system. It is legal for this basketball player to hire a murderer for his unborn child while Ariel Castro is being charged with aggravated murder for killing the unborn child of one of his captives. This horrific story of evil and the duplicitous lunacy of our legal system stems from a long history of disobedience to God. The wide use and acceptance of artificial contraception has given evil birth to the culture of death known as abortion. The scourge of abortion has given birth to the evil known as euthanasia. The evil use of euthanasia has given birth to the continuing scourge and culture of death known as same sex marriage. Our nation is lost without God. This is why it is so important for the authentic teachings of the Catholic Church to be taught to our world and to our youth.
“Now the law entered in, that sin might abound. And where sin abounded, grace did more abound.”
It is important to speak up and defend life no matter how many Gloria Allred followers there are. They are are serving and supporting the culture of death. Several years ago my neighbor telephoned to ask me if I would go and talk to a woman who was the housekeeper for a professional basketball player and his wife. This housekeeper became pregnant and the basketball player and his wife were encouraging this housekeeper to murder her unborn child, all expenses paid by them so that this woman could still clean their home and care for their children while they traveled. I asked my sister to come with me because where two or more are gathered we had confidence that the Holy Spirit would be there. We drove 45 minutes to meet this woman. God is good! We arrived at this very beautiful home. The world would certainly view this home as a sign of great wealth and success. Cor. 3:19 “The wisdom of the world is foolishness with God.”
God’s timing arrangement is always perfect and more successful than our finite minds can imagine. We were wondering how could we speak with this housekeeper if her employer was there? They would surely tell us to leave. Well, God had taken care of that obstacle. The basketball player and his wife and children were not home. They had gone out to shop. We were given a one hour window of opportunity to try to try and save the life of this innocent baby before her employers came back home. Our discussion was allowed to take place right inside the kitchen of the basketball player’s home. I still remember it was during Christmastime and there was a beautifully decorated Christmas tree in this house. The basketball player’s wife had paid a large sum of money for professional decorators to trim the tall tree and decorate the exterior of the home. All of the beautiful exterior worldly trappings but an interior darkness and coldness of the culture of death. The pregnant housekeeper was definitely divided. She did not want to lose her large paycheck and her job in this beautiful home where the seducers of murder were tempting her with promises of trips with the family and money if she terminated her pregnancy. It was the clear teachings of the Catholic Church that opened her heart. We could see that she was listening. I do remember asking her to think about how she would feel in the future if she took their money to end the life her own baby? I asked her to please think about how she would feel when she was polishing her employers fancy faucets and fancy sinks when her eyes went up to clean the mirror and she had to look into the reflection of her own eyes and think about what she had done in order to shine and polish the home of the persons who asked her to murder her own baby in order for her to care for their babies? This housekeeper could have easily kicked us out or asked us to leave but she didn’t. She kept listening. She listened because authentic Catholic truth resonates in the hearts and in the minds of those who do not want to offend God. When we left we hugged her and we really did not know what she was going to do. Several months later the housekeeper telephoned my house to tell me that she had given birth to a baby boy and she wanted to thank us for reaching out to her. This is why it is so critically important to always speak up. Many women in my neighborhood are pro-abortion but there was one woman who was pro-life. This woman was the one who called and arranged the meeting in the basketball players house. I have come to believe without a doubt that these are the divinely arranged appointments where God suspends any obstacle or interference to His Divine Will in order to bring about a good. Yesterday our sweet sister Dana was allowed to share her powerful story of a Divine appointment arrangement. These beautiful conversion awakenings let us know that these divine appointments are always there, even amidst this cruel and oppressive culture of death. Conversion is possible if we are willing to truly listen and open our hearts and our minds to the Perfect Will of God. WITH God All Things Are Possible and without God all evils become possible. The story above proves that point. Now matter how victorious the culture of death appears, Almighty God completely rules this world and God has the final say. In the End My Immaculate Heart Will Triumph!
Your writing did not make it clear but I assume that this Jock had impregnated the housekeeper and he wanted her to kill his own child and hers.
I, when I was younger, was considered a sports jock, but not that kind, Oh I failed and suffered for it, but I want to believe that I would never have stooped to that level of mud.
I am now completely turned off by the Sports world.
I was in Carl Karcher’s office the day he called a very famous Hoop player,cancelled his contracts with him, and told him he was sending back his Jersey that was hanging in his office. Too bad Carl’s successor does not emulate Carl.
God bless, yours in Their Hearts,

Gloria Allred is a shameless vaginal advocate. Society suffers because of her, the Jesse Jackson of ladies privates.
They know how to use the media to sway the crowds…after all many are slaves to the opinions of the media and it is their very own sinfulness that blinds them from the truth. But don’t think its always good for these wicked pair, what the media doesn’t show is what they are hiding. There is more than meets the eye.
This is tragic and heartbreaking.
