Here’s a bit of pleasant news to kick off the week. As reported by Matthew Archbold:
Two abortionists in Maryland (Dr. Steven Brigham and Dr. Nicola Riley) were ordered to stop practicing abortions in Maryland after a woman was severely injured.
Subsequently, police raided the clinic searching for medical records and to their horror they discovered dozens of unborn babies stored in a freezer.
After being shocked and disgusted my mind raced back to an incident a few months ago.
This would be a strange and horrible story if it had never happened before but just a few months ago another abortionist, this one in Philadelphia, was discovered to be keeping aborted babies in jars.
The news story has been picked up and linked by many blogs, and it’s been posted on the Drudge Report, making the original story hard to reach as the server is struggling to handle the load of visitors. At this writing, 10 hours after the story was posted, there are 127 comments and 48 retweets. It seems to have hit a nerve.
I don’t understand the fuss. For decades feminists have been telling us that abortion is a morally neutral choice. They have claimed that what is being aborted isn’t really a baby, just a mass of unnecessary tissue. They have referred to it as a fetus, a lump of cells, even a parasite. So this is just the equivalent of the doctors keeping a few cell samples, right?
Nope. This is a moment of moral clarity. The common reaction by the people shows that we instinctively understand that we are not dealing with just a mass of tissue, but an unborn baby, stripped of its chance to live.
