As I sat this morning praying one hour of rosaries, as part of the “40 Days for Life” here in Pittsburgh during October, my mind went to a woman lying on an operating table and a doctor using forceps to pull a beautiful baby out of the birth canal and plunging a sharp medical instrument into the back of this child of God’s brain. Tears immediately flowed from my eyes as I could hear the scream of this innocent baby boy or girl as their God-given life was suddenly pulled away and only those who care could hear the loud scream without the use of vocal chords. I have 22 more days (one hour each day) of praying to relive this awful torturous picture, over and over. It may become more intrusive as the thoughts become a living hell.
The destruction of perfectly formed children, one a doctor, another a priest, and many more fathers and mothers, now removed from the opportunity to live a life receiving God’s Graces and giving back their own gifts of love and hope, now taken away for reasons that do not correspond to the world God intended for all humanity.
To make this awful event even more hideous is these children who tasted life but for a split second outside the womb, will never have the Grace of Baptism or other religious welcoming. However, their souls are immediately drawn to God’s Mercy and His Eternal Love.
Added to all this is none of these beautiful babies will have a decent human burial as their human remains are flushed down an 8” sewer drain to be mixed with sewage from human waste. See my article, “A Dilemma, Choices we must make.” Published here April 8, 2017.
During the Third Reich ethnic cleansing was performed for different reasons, but Hitler’s idea was to create a Master Race, eliminating Jews, Catholics, and of course babies through abortion. Our present society is not aborting babies to create a master race, just a way of conveniently allowing people to not be bothered raising children and forgetting that God never intended the human race to slow down in growth or completely eliminate itself from human history. Yet, that is exactly what is happening as the respect for human rights is becoming a sense of throw-away persons; be it abortion, euthanasia, or confining those among us who are challenged in ways not suitable to the main-class-thinking, whatever that may be.
We may try as voting members of our country to politically attempt to overturn Roe vs Wade, but it will be the intervention of Almighty God, through a lot of intense prayer, besides political pandering, to change the thinking of most people who may believe that seeking an answer to all this is just the polls. We need to get back to prayer, lots of it, and strengthening the Church in its quest to reach the unchurched and non-believers.
Germany, with Adolph Hitler as their leader, our current value system on human rights, and each individual person with blinders, have or are becoming pawns of Satanic influence. Remember what St. Paul said, “it is not a war of flesh and blood, but of powers and principalities” (Eph. 6: 12).
This is why I availed myself to pray the rosary four hours a week as part of a larger contingent against abortion and all of the insidious results that occur from it. You may choose a different path, but please choose some manner of prayer for those who cannot pray for themselves.
