What is the word to describe a baby, aborted at 7 months, being placed in a box with cotton wool stuffed in his mouth and sent to the furnace of a crematory -- alive?  We are living in our own age of ongoing death camps, complete with furnaces where the unwanted, the imperfect, the sick, the powerless, the silent ones go to be eliminated. Some say narratives like mine here are full of exaggeration. How else can we describe the nefarious act of discarding a human being like garbage?

WASHINGTON, DC (Catholic Online) - Sometimes there just isn't an adequate adjective.
 
What is the word to describe a baby, aborted at 7 months, being placed in a box with cotton wool stuffed in his mouth and sent to the furnace of a crematory -- alive?

Horrifying?  Not even close.  Shocking?  A paltry description.  What is the word?

Evil.  Depraved.  Malevolent.  Wicked.  Those words are a good fit.  This unspeakable evil took place in China's Guangdong Province.  Just as this baby was about to be thrown into the fire, the mortuary worker heard him cry.  The worker was startled by the sound and stopped to open the box and discovered the baby moving, choking on the cotton stuffed in his mouth.  The worker cleared his mouth and the baby breathed peacefully.

The child was rushed back to the hospital from whence he'd come earlier that day labeled as medical waste.  But doctors there refused to treat him.  They left him in the lobby.  They confirmed hours later that he was dead (they made sure this time) and sent him right back to the funeral home to be cremated.

Those who champion abortion will say that narratives like mine here are full of exaggeration, inflammatory language and highly-charged, emotional terms.  But tell me, please, how can we adequately describe the nefarious act of discarding a human being like garbage sent to the furnace?

How is it inflammatory to describe the medical "procedure" whereby a baby is stabbed at the base of the skull, her brains literally sucked out of her head, her skull crushed and then removed from the birth canal?  Or the process by which she is burned with chemicals, dismembered with forceps, stabbed in the heart with a lethal injection, or forcefully sucked out of the womb?

Those are simply the facts.  It sounds inflammatory only to those who are liars and killers.

The language of liars and killers is far more ambiguous.  Words like "choice", "rights", and "reproductive health" have an empowering and clinical ring to them, while they hypnotize a self-centered, hedonistic culture.  "Fetus" is uttered callously as though it means something less than a human being.  To the liars and killers, this is their vernacular, and it is persuasive and deceiving.

The heartless destruction of our children is monstrous, and those who accomplish it forfeit their humanity piece by piece.  A human being has an innate instinct toward compassion, toward basic kindness unless that instinct is smothered by hate.  No one kills babies out of love.  A person only ignores a helpless, dying baby, as the doctors in China ignored that beloved child, because he has surrendered his heart to hate and death.  A person rips a baby out of the womb and inflicts death only because he himself has surrendered to the spirit of death.

There are no other ends on the road of abortion; only hate, death and the utter loss of the soul.

To the advocates and administers of abortion in America, I dare you - defend the death of this Chinese baby.  Explain the correctness of his murder; justify his torture.  You must.  It cannot matter at all to you where, when or how this baby died.  All that matters is that he is dead, finally.  The means to the end are irrelevant, if "choice" is sacrosanct.  You already demand the right to dismember, burn, stab, suction and decapitate "it."  You must now go the next step and demand the right to use whatever means necessary to achieve the objective of death, whether in or out of the womb.

The time has come to admit what you're really saying, what you're really demanding - the right to violently extinguish another human being simply because you wish it.  Your rhetoric may sound clever to you, with all its vague and generic descriptions of the baby in the womb, but the truth is never disguised, and every human heart not already atrophied by hate and death knows the truth.  Abortion does not terminate a pregnancy.  Abortion terminates the baby.

You are not heroes of choice or bodily autonomy or freedom or women's rights.  You are cheerleaders for and distributors of death.  You are pirates who plunder the womb and profit from the killing of children.

Basic human decency and compassion demanded that those Chinese doctors help to save that poor baby's life.  But to the abortion militia, compassion and decency are smote by their mythical yet inviolate "right to choose."

America, listen up.  What happened in China is the only and inevitable destination of our country as long as we embrace the evil of abortion.  In fact, we know for certain that we are already arriving at that destination.  Babies who have the audacity to survive their abortion in this country are left alone on instrument tables to die, or thrown away like trash.  Our Born Alive Infant Protection Act (how can such an act of legislation even be needed?!?) is ignored and unenforced.  Don't think it doesn't happen in America.

It is inevitable that more and more babies will be thrown away, having survived their murder attempt, and left to die, or put in boxes and shoved into the furnace.  There is only one objective to the cause of abortion: death.  Once a taste for death has been acquired, it is never satisfied.  It demands more blood, and more blood, and it is never enough.  There is always another restriction to be lifted, another speed bump to level so that the road of "choice" is fast, unobstructed and easily traveled.

We are living in our own age of ongoing death camps, complete with furnaces where the unwanted, the imperfect, the sick, the powerless, the silent ones go to be eliminated.

There is only one cure and His name is Jesus.  His innocent blood was shed to forgive the sins of every soul, even the depraved sin of abortion.  There is mercy for us, America, if we will choose life.  There is prosperity and healing and happiness and abundant grace for us if we will turn away from our sin and seek His face.
 
If we do not summon the courage to admit what we have done, what we continue to do, if we do not beg God's mercy, the road we are on will surely lead to destruction.  The only question is, what will it take to change our course?
