“Things that cannot stand sunlight are not healthful” Harry Emerson Fosdick
An atrocity today that cannot stand the light and is not ‘healthful’ to the victims who are killed by it; is abortion. Anyone daring to show the bloody abused and slaughtered bodies of unborn babies killed by abortion or “choice” - as its proponents call it - are attacked and vilified for showing the truth. (they are even attacked by some so-called ethicists and supposed pro-lifers) We live in a society that pretends “choice” is wonderful and that there are no victims. There are two victims in this atrocity; the mother who is told that what is inside her is “tissue” and is “disposable” and the child who is the victim of “disposable choice.” Disguised as “choice” this “procedure” eliminates over 100,000 human lives a year in Canada. There is a wealth of information available on the humanity of the unborn baby, who can be seen on ultra sound, and is operated on to correct any health problems when the child is “wanted.” When not “wanted” the lie is continually perpetrated that the child is only “potential life.” And that “choice” is good.
The big lie of “choice” is spread by most of the media, and hailed by most politicians as a “right” to be protected, especially at election time. “Choice” is an election slogan, as witness our democratically challenged prime minister trumpeting it in the last election. Yet, “choice” kills. This “choice” propaganda is worthy of Josef Goebbels himself. He surely would have approved of these peddlers of propaganda. Tell the big lie often enough and it attains credibility. Yet, for a lie to remain as a “truth” the lie has to continue to be disseminated. This is why the media will not show the carved up and headless bodies of babies killed by abortion. They have already committed themselves as supporters of “choice” and so one lie begets another. There are no victims in abortion according to the powers that be. Therefore there is no evidence to be shown. Or to paraphrase an old saying lives deemed unworthy of living are called “choice.”
Yet some choices are bad. When somebody chose to kill bald eagles recently, the media gave this story big coverage and even showed the carved up carcases of the eagles. Questions were asked as to who was committing these atrocities and it was stated the police were investigating. The message was: Killing eagles is unacceptable and rightly so. But, in our local slaughterhouses, called abortion clinics, killing babies is acceptable. These places are described as promoting “healthcare choices.” When the language is perverted then anything is possible and permissible. After all “choice” is not horrific is it?
Most people are horrified when they see pictures on TV of baby seals being clubbed to death and the ice flows running red with their blood. Warnings are issued on TV before showing the pictures and we are told the images are gruesome. Imagine if these same TV cameras took us inside the local abortuary where babies are slaughtered, suctioned out, poisoned by a saline solution or in some cases born alive and left to die. The people would then be able to see these grisly medical butchers at work performing “choice” for the nation. Then the truth and the light would be shed on this abominable choice, and the babies killed and mutilated by abortion would no longer be the hidden slaughtered victims.
