We have got away from thinking of abortion as an act of violence. Even for most pro-life people, the unborn child is not really thought of as a person.
My wife and I have had five children...all grown now. We now have six grandchildren.
I was very involved through each pregnancy with talking to, feeling, and interacting with the children in the womb as soon as my wife began feeling their movement.
I found, at a very early part of the pregnancy that those moving little children interacted with me, if I took the time to try. And they were each different in how they interacted and moved and responded to my touch and voice.
They are living and they are living human children.
When a child is born, it reacts to the spanking because it feels the pain, and thus starts to breathe.
The horror of late term abortions is a gruesome, bloody business with fully formed, live children...who you can bet are feeling and reacting to the violent way they are killed.
But it is the same for younger babies during pregnancy as the movie, "The Silent Scxream" attests.
Abortion is murder, plain and simple...and it has turned into a genocidal holocaust that is being conducted under color of law. It is being done for convienence for the vast majority of the poor wretches of woman who choose it for that reason, and it being done for profit by the butchers mascarading as doctors.
56,000 were killed in Buchenwald...and the world justifiaby, and understandably condemned it and hunted down and executed the perpetrators.
By his own admission, Tiller butchered 60,000 and more, and yet a corrupt law, that has protected the practioners in this gruesome holocaust, protected the man from the true rule of law.
Anyone blind to the sick, evil irony of that have accepted a deparved set of circumstances and strong delusion. We should continue doing all in our pwer to end this sick, depraved genocide. But each and every day we are unsuccessful, another 3,300+ die...and die horribly.
We may find, that because of the depravity, and the sick, tainted, and cauterized consciences of the people involved...that we will be unable to end it peacefully, as our forefathers tragically discovered over slavery.
I mourn Tiller's family at the loss of their father and grandfather. I doubt seriously that they knew the full and graphic nature of what he was involed in.
But I absolutely refuse to mourn the fact that he, Dr. Tiller, a bloody, gruesome killer of fully formed babies...who were alive, who could FEEL THE PAIN of being literally ripped asunder, will himself murder no more.
THE GRUESOME TRUTH OF THE ABORTION HOLOCAUST & THE DEATH OF DR. TILLER [Warning: A graphic photo of death & dismemberment]
It is the grimmest of ironies that one of the most savage, barbaric acts of evil in history began in one of the most modernized societies of its time, where so many markers of human progress became tools of human depravity: science that can heal, used to kill; education that can enlighten, used to rationalize away basic moral impulses; the bureaucracy that sustains modern life, used as the machinery of mass death, a ruthless, chillingly efficient system where many were responsible for the killing, but few got actual blood on their hands.Barack Obama April 24, 2009, Holocaust Remebernce Day, Chicago Sun Times.
