In a story that brings the horrors of the Nazi regime back to mind, The Telegraph reports that “[t]he bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals.”
The latter case is the result of “’waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.”
Thankfully, once news of this appalling travesty made the news, the National Health Service director ordered the practice to be stopped.
But how did it start in the first place? We have lost our sense of the sanctity of life. This loss, combined with the overbearing utilitarianism of our culture, has led us to engage in an even more efficient “final solution” than that of the Third Reich!
Being that this article was written about the UK, you might wonder why I have included us in this conclusion. As it turns out, as reported by WND, the UK “has more restrictive laws on abortion than the U.S.”
Concerning the US the WND account notes: “Many abortion clinics have incinerators so babies would be burned after they are aborted. There are examples of where babies have been born alive and then killed or, of course, burned. In the case of the late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell up in Philadelphia – who was convicted of murdering three children born alive – he was cutting off body parts and storing them and flushing them down toilets to the degree where they had to call in plumbers to unplug their plumbing because it was full of aborted baby body parts. So there are horrifying examples in our country of how the bodies of these little babies are mistreated and disregarded,” says Jeanneane Maxon, attorney at Americans United for Life.
Ideas about life are exceedingly important. Such practices as noted above are abhorrent even to those who do not call themselves pro-life. We are literally outdoing the atrocities of Nazi Germany.
It is time to wake up and recognize that the preborn child is fully human and must be treated as such!
