I think the fact that this is a newsworthy event reveals something about the inherent evil of abortion. I mean, it is no better to give a dignified burial or more sanitized cremation to the dead baby killed by the act of abortion. But somehow, something in the back of people's minds activates their sense of moral outrage when they hear about this. Why?
I hope that this is an indication that the Natural Law is working within them, that hearing about those tiny corpses being burned with the trash appeals to their God given sense of right and wrong. If only they could allow themselves to continue on to the next logical step: burning dead babies with the trash is wrong BECAUSE killing little unborn babies itself is wrong.
It's a shame if stories like this only go as far as dealing with the sanitation issue. What a waste if public discussion is raised to address a moral outrage, but falls short of even admitting what the heart of the problem is, which is clearly that abortion is murder.


Good point Brian.

If their only destroying a mass of cells or something that isn't even human, what's wrong with buring them with the daily trash?


"The revelation sparked anger and distress among church leaders and pro-life groups, as well as women whose pregnancies were terminated at the hospital."

I cannot imagine why a woman who murders her child would be angered and distressed when others dispose of her child as the rubbish that she views it to be.


We sit here wondering if the West can prevail against extreme Islam.

I wonder if we can prevail against our own nihilism. Or if we deserve to prevail.

We erect monuments and solemnly promise to Never Forget! the Holocaust, and rightly so, yet here we sit as our own society engages in the slaughter and callous cremation of countless millions of innocents. We do it in the same fashion, and with the same disinterested boredom as the soulless bureaucrats of Hitler's Germany.

And we wonder why our society is crumbling around us?

When we can sit sround over our lattes and actually have an argument over the practice of partial birth abortion, as if it were no more significant as "paper or plastic?"?

When we've created doctors with no more respect for life that they could deliver a living child, then stick a vacuum hose through its skull and suck out the brains, and call it a "medical procedure"?

When Down's Syndrome babies are routinely extirminated becasue they are not our ideal of perfection?

When we have lowered the value of life to the point that embyonic stem-cell research has become the subject of competing political ads, yet no one talks about the dead babies that are the providers of such tissue?

When we are actually farming human beings so that we can harvest their organs and stem cell lines like so much wheat and chaff?

When we can kill living human beings because WE think they have no "quality of life"?

And we act sanctimonious and upset when a hospital treats dead babies as no more than trash to be economically disposed of?

And all we can do is be "angry and distressed"?

Our Church leaders are "distressed"? That's all they can muster? Maybe they'll write a strongly worded letter. That'll show 'em!

The women who murdered their children are "distressed"?

May God have mercy upon our souls.


Actually Zarba, strongly worded letters have led to some pretty good things...Declaration of Independence ring a bell.

Short of mustering a Pro-life Army together (oh the Irony!), our Church leaders can only do so much--we must remember though that "only so much" includes storming heaven with prayers and BEGGING our blessed Mother to intercede.

Change will come, untill then...

Regina sine labe originali concepta, ora pro nobis.

A Simple Sinner

“...throwing aborted babies into the same incinerator used for rubbish to save only £18.50 each time, [The] Hospital... said it was no longer able to afford the dignified disposal at a local crematorium of foetuses from unwanted pregnancies."

£1 = $1.88 or about $35.00 for the cremation.

How does one have "dignified disposal" of someone they just chopped up and sucked out? Maybe a small memorial service or playing some funeral music?

One wonders why they EVER paid $35 a pop to for "dignified disposal" of something that was a mass of cells - if it is what we they say it is, it can go in the same bio-waste incinerator as the bloody bandages or removed appendixes and gaul bladders.

Actually, in doing even that much they are doing a bit better than some clinics in America have done. A former Reformed Episcopal priest who appeared on The Journey Home a few months ago actually got involved in the pro-life movement when one of his parishoners alerted him that fetuses were being tossed in the dumpster of the abortuary across the street from his church. I am trying to remember the man's name if anyone wanted to listen to the interview in real audio... If I come up with it, I will post it with a link - it is worth listening to.


To the quote from Genesis I would add, "See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father." Mt. 18:10


More lefty trolling "peace"?

Stop trying to hijack this blog with your mindless political bullcrap.

Mods, I suggest a ban is in order - "peace" is posting commpletely off topic with only the intent to disrupt this blog.

What A Wonderful Message To Pass On To All...

Passing This On By ... Gmmy Radio

A letter from God to His children:

Dear Children,

It has come to My attention that many of you are upset that folks
Are taking My name out of the season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't
Actually born during this time of the year and that it was some of your
Predecessors who decided to celebrate My birthday on what was actually a
Time of pagan festival. Although I do appreciate being remembered anytime.

How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most
Easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of
Your own.I don't care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate My
Birth just, GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER. Now, having said that let Me go

If it bothers you that the town in which you live doesn't allow a
Scene depicting My birth, then just get rid of a couple of Santa's and snowmen
And put in a Small Nativity scene on your own front lawn. If all My
Followers did that there wouldn't be any need for such a scene on the town
Square because there would be many of them all around town.

Stop worrying about the fact that people are calling the tree a
Holiday tree, instead of a Christmas tree. It was I who made all trees. You
Can and may remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a grape vine if
You wish: I actually spoke of that one in a teaching explaining who I am in
Relation to you & what each of our tasks were. If you have forgot that one,
Look up John 15: 1 - 8.

If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of My birth here is
My wish list. Choose something from it.

1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to the way My
Birthday is being celebrated, write letters of love and hope to soldiers
Away from home. They are terribly afraid and lonely this time of year. I
Know, they tell Me all the time.

2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have to know them
Personally. They just need to know that someone cares about them.

3. Instead of writing George complaining about the wording on the
Cards his staff sent out this year, why don't you write and tell him that
You'll be praying for him and his family this year. Then follow up. It will
Be nice hearing from you again.

4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts you can't afford
And they don't need, spend time with them. Tell them the story of My birth,
And why I came to live with you down here. Hold them in your arms and remind
Them that I love them.

5. Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and forgive him or

6. Did you know that someone in your town will attempt to take
Their own life this season because they feel so alone and hopeless? Since
You don't know who that person is, try giving everyone you meet a warm
Smile. It could make the difference. Also, you might consider supporting the
Local hotline: they talk with people like that every day.

7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in your town
Calls the holiday, be patient with the people who work there. Give them a
Warm smile and a kind word. Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a "Merry
Christmas" that doesn't keep YOU from wishing THEM one. Then stop shopping
There on Sunday. If the store didn't make so much money on that day, they'd
Close and let their employees spend the day at home with their families.

8. If you really want to make a difference, support a missionary,
Especially one who takes My love & Good News to those who have never heard
My name. You may already know someone like that.

9. Here's a good one. There are individuals & whole families in
Your town who not only will have no "Christmas" tree, but neither will they
Have any presents to give or receive. If you don't know them (and I suspect
You don't) buy some food and a few gifts and give them to the Salvation Army
Or some other charity that believes in Me and they will make the delivery
For you.

10. Finally if you want to make a statement about your belief in
And loyalty to Me, then behave like a Christian. Don't do things in secret
That you wouldn't do in My presence. Let people know by your actions that
You are one of mine.

P.S. Don't forget; I am God and can take care of Myself. Just love
Me and do what I have told you to do. I'll take care of all the rest. Check
Out the list above and get to work; time is short. I'll help you, but the
ball is now in your court. And do have a most blessed Christmas with all
those whom you love, and remember: I LOVE YOU.
