Throw Away Society

Medved is talking about a case in Florida of an abortion clinic doing horrendous things. More horrendous than cutting up babies in the womb.

A baby was BORN in the abortion clinic. An autopsy has proven that the baby took a breath - its lungs filled with air.

The workers cut the umbilical cord and stuffed the LIVE - LIVING - BABY in a biohazard bag.

I do not think there is much more evil than that. What kind of person could do such a thing?

According to the complaint, she gave birth at a Hialeah clinic after waiting hours for Renelique to arrive. The complaint said one of the clinic owners put the baby in a bag that was thrown away.

Police found the infant's decomposing remains a week later.

I want to throw up.

I believe that minutes before it was born it was also alive and deserved life. It was a future human being who deserves respect and the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. But once it was born, and fully outside the womb, it was legally a fully fledged human being, protected by law.

As someone who has wanted a baby for years, the "thing" growing in my uterus is not just a "thing". It is not a lifeless clump of cells. The moment we conceived it had unique DNA from me and my husband. It was human. It wasn't just an appendage or extra skin growth. My finger could never become a new human life if left alone to grow. The cells growing inside me are LIFE.

At around 7 weeks (nearly) it has started growing limbs and features that we can identify as human. And we talk about 'it' as a baby, a human, a future part of our lives.

It has a future. Unknown, except by God, but limitless.

My stomach aches when reading about this story. The idea that abortion is simply a medical procedure to remove unwanted cells, like amputating a finger, is sick and wrong. I do not come to my beliefs based on my religion. Science shows me that late term abortions are evil, sick, and wrong. And that no self proclaimed advanced society should allow them.

In 6th grade I wrote an essay in support of abortion. I didn't know what the hell I was talking about and was merely spouting back what I had been taught. In the 7th grade I read a book in the library and there were pictures of apes in the uterus at very young was some sort of science book. You could see the shapes and the future apes they would become. Not lifeless cells with no purpose or future life.

I have seen horrible pictures of tiny limbs, with fingers and toes, ripped from inside a woman. I have seen babies small enough to fit inside a person's palm but with all their human features - killed before their future could begin. I have seen the graphic drawings showing the procedure where a doctor punctures the back of the skull of the CHILD inside the womb, and sucks out the brains, before removing it piece by piece. I have read about the horror former abortion doctors went through in doing their "duty" ... which is why they are former.

This issue is obviously close to my heart right now as I wait for my little one to grow bigger...I'm still worried about losing him or her to a miscarriage. The issue will mean even more to me when I am able to feel the little crumb cruncher moving around inside of me...when I can hear the heartbeat. It's not just an appendage.

"I do not think there is much more evil than that."

How about the fact that Dear Leader voted "present" 120 something times in the Illinois Senate? The few times he was actually roused to vote one way or another, he voted against bills that would protect abortion babies born alive.

He is a monster, and the media that hid that information from the public are monsters, too.

Is there an evil worse than killing the innocent? I don't think so.

I heard about this case on the radio yesterday in the car, as I was running errands... and almost threw up.

It's unbelievable what we have become. And Great Leader talks about protecting 'the least of these'? He's talking about welfare recipients; he still wants to kill babies.

Deep breath.
