Warning – this post deals with sensitive subject matter and may contain graphic descriptions that should bother all who read. My opinion is obviously still just my opinion, but the facts ARE the facts.
I was listening to the radio, in my family van, without the kids today when this radio program came on. I was left bereft and sobbing by the end.
Whether you are Pro-life, Pro-Choice, Pro-Abortion, Pro-killing babies for being concieved at the wrong time, whatever, these cold hard facts are ones that should make us turn cold with fear for our future. It should cause us to weep. Admittedly Charles Adler is Pro-Choice, though it sounds like he’s still trying to figure it out. With the media barely covering this horrific crime story, I stand in respect for this man to air it. Major media is ignoring this ongoing and huge trial because it is discussing things none of them want to eiscuss. How did our society get here? Where news items THIS big are covered up? They don’t want to rock the abortion boat.
We need to be discussing this amongst ourselves not just ignoring it and hoping it’s not really real. It needs to go from “just a story ” to “Can this actually be happening in our country?” Yes it is.
The following article is a transcript from today’s show with Charles Adler.
“hen I did my tour of duty in the U-S back in the nineties, I heard some
criminologists say that the most effective way to reduce crime in poor
communities is to give women as much access to abortion as possible, any
kind of abortion at any point in the pregnancy. Fewer births will mean fewer
potential criminals. Is that another reason why there has been so much
silence over the slaughter of these little lambs. Do we know how many been
killed? Most of the documentation in Kermit Gosnell Clinics has been
destroyed and I can assure you that other clinics like this have also
shredded the paper in much the same way that they shredded human life.
Before I leave this alone, let me return for a moment to the Grand Jury
“Among the relatively few cases that could be specifically documented, one
was Baby Boy A. His 17-year-old mother was almost 30 weeks pregnant — seven
and a half months — when labour was induced. An employee estimated his
birth weight as approaching six pounds. He was breathing and moving when
Gosnell severed his spine and put the body in a plastic shoebox for
disposal. The doctor joked that this baby was so big he could “walk me to
the bus stop.” Another, Baby Boy B, whose body was found at the clinic
frozen in a one-gallon spring-water bottle, was at least 28 weeks of
gestational age when he was killed. Baby C was moving and breathing for 20
minutes before an assistant came in and cut the spinal cord, just the way
she had seen Gosnell do it so many times. And these were not even the worst
Question: Do we believe this hasn’t been going in dozens of other clinics.
You don’t have to read the grand jury testimony that I have been pouring
through this past weekend to know in your heart that this has been going on
for more than 40 years. And if you find this disturbing, it means you’re
still a human being. For decades now people have asked the question, “When
does Human life begin? And there are biological answers, physiological
answers, and theological answers. I don’t pretend to know when human life
begins. But I know where it ends. It ends when we stop being jarred by the
scenes of baby feet in Kermit Gosnell’s jars.” Charles Adler
A thought-provoking piece, one which not only disturbed me but horrified me. I know that there is evil in this world. I know that there are evil acts being done to other human beings, but I find myself comfortable in my world not to think about it. Not to let it get to me.
I held my dying son. He was born at 26 weeks gestation, and he was most certainly human. Living, barely, but still a precious, tiny soul that felt pain and in the last hours, knew his parents love because we brought him close, told him of our love and then said good-bye.
To think of someone delivering a baby like that and cutting its head off after they are breathing and cutting feet from other babies and storing them in jars…well, that makes Mr. Gosnell a horrific serial killer and a mass murderer. He also killed low-income mothers who should have been treated with the same dignity as their babies should have received. Not the butchery. Not the killing.
Maybe it strikes a chord in me because my “babies” were conceived in women who were not expecting the pregnancy at that point.Our society was telling their birth moms to kill them, they are an inconvenience. You have no money so kill your babies. BUT THEY DIDN”T and my kids are alive and well and I love them deeply and hug them tighter because they escaped society’s pressure for their birth or first mothers to end what was inconvenient. I have so much respect for women (and men) who instead value the life they have created and let it live. Let it be loved.
Don’t get me wrong, I see the injustice of children being born to people who should never be parents. Oh how I’ve seen that in the last five years. Parents who have children for some unknown reason and ignore their children. Their “babies” become an inconvenience so they leave them to the evils and wiles of the world. In the streets they become less than they should be because of parental indifference. I’m not sure what is the biggest crime?
Even so. Even SO. Life is valuable at every stage. LIFE. There is nothing like life, no matter the conditions it was created in (and I know there are some huge situations that are infrequent but still tragic) the children have value whether it is at 11 weeks gestation or at 11 years old.
You hold value. Oh, Lord, how you have value. The One who made us is waiting and wanting for all to come to him. To stop carrying our burdens of sin and come to him. He values YOUR Life.
Oh Lord, stop the killing. The needless killing of babies. In your most powerful Name STOP the KILLING and torturing (and you can read court doc’s to tell you this is true) of babies. It is happening more than in just this one place. It’s happening all over the place. Late term abortions make sure that babies (or they are supposed to) are not completely born before their spines are severed or beheaded. If the babies feet obstruct the way, they cut them off. Get them out-of-the-way. But the babies are still alive. They are dismembering babies limb by limb alive. Late-term abortions are torture and murder.
People, can you believe that we are cutting babies ALIVE while they are in the birth canal in our country? In YOURS?
God bring this nation to you. We want love to reign here and justice. Lord protect those wee ones whose parents are just wanting to not have to think of this pregnancy as a complications. It’s an easy fix. For the baby, let’s think of other options. Let’s see if we can find those babies homes that can love and care for them.
I have four blessings who did not go to the “chopping block” and for that I am thankful.
Jesus, thank-you for my children. They are precious. thank you.
