…steam-cleaning aborted children and tossing them in a landfill…
…instead of burying them as pathological waste.
I didn’t intend to keep writing about Whole Woman’s Health abortion clinics, but what I read is disturbingly impelling. How did we get here? I don’t know whether to be more disgusted by what I read or the language that is used to express it.
First, this clinic tries to make abortion seem like a day at the spa, “VIP Abortions: Herbal Tea Afterward in Hilary Clinton Room.” Second, this clinic creates an app for abortion, “Abortion: There’s an App for That.” Third, the app features a reviewer who leaves the comment below, “They even let me take pictures of the fetus.”
Several people thought it was a joke, more thought it was sick. It wasn’t a joke. It is sick.
In the Houston Chronicle last Friday it was reported that two of the company’s facilities, one in McAllen and one in Austin, along with the waste management company, have been fined by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for “improperly disposing of fetuses in a landfill.” The waste management company steam-sanitized the dead bodies of aborted children, but that isn’t what they are fined for. It’s OK in Texas to steam-clean the bodies. What isn’t OK is to then put them in the landfill. They are supposed to be buried as pathological waste. The two clinics were fined a total of $40,000.
Try standing in front of a mirror and saying out loud, “I live in a country where babies are systematically killed in masses, sanitized with steam, and buried as pathological waste unfit for the landfill.”
And a business is making money serving cookies and goldfish and having a photo-shoot.
Collectively – we should be ashamed of ourselves.
I couldn’t help but think of the contrast in the poignant story from Brent Stubbs, contributor at Ignitum Today, writer at Almost Not Catholic, and proud father of a beautiful family, who recounts his experience retrieving the remains of his daughter from the hospital after a miscarriage for a proper burial. He laments the terminology medical team insisted on using during a very difficult loss. They wouldn’t even acknowledge the life of his child. But he did.
My daughter, strapped in next to me, was in the passenger seat, riding with all the dignity I could give her–or that could be afforded a ride in a white, quasi-casket, plastic bin meant for fishing bait. I cried most of the ride to the cemetery.
What kind of world do we live in when the weakest among us are treated like waste? This is truly what is at stake in the HHS ruling. That the culture of death would be forced upon even those who are still trying–with strain of effort put down at every turn–to give every human dignity. That’s all I wanted my daughter to have.
I love you. I tried my best. I’m sorry this world is so messed up. See you in heaven, darling.
Living the Truth in Love. This is what every man should aspire to be. We are at a turning point in our nation. Anyone who supports contraception and abortion contributes to the ugly culture where human beings are treated like waste. And it is a disgrace for the entire society.
$40,000 fined, not for killing, but for failing to dispose of the bodies according to State requirements.
