America’s Culture of Death: Abortion, Botched Abortions, and the State of the Human Heart

4555

I somehow came across an article the other day that really made me sad and disgusted. I had the displeasure of reading “Infant who survived abortion screamed for an hour while left alone to die” by Cassy Fiano-Chesser at Live Action News.

Really, even just the title was enough to make me tear up a bit. Of course, I’ve seen those horrible pictures of aborted babies, and I’ve heard of such stories with botched abortions before, and they’ve always affected me, but it’s different now. My own daughter was born last May; becoming a parent, having another life that you created and who depends on you to provide love and care, expands and deepens your heart, allowing such terrible stories to speak to you to a degree you probably had no inkling of before you became a parent.

I can’t stand to hear my daughter cry for even a minute, and here we have the story of how hospital staff did absolutely nothing to help a 24-week-old baby that survived an abortion and was born alive as it screamed for an entire hour.

Either those doctors and nurses are now suffering severe spiritual and psychological damage from what they did, or if not, they must have already been reduced to but a shred of humanity even before this incident from 2016.

This story is from Poland, but it got me wondering how often this happens in America. My Googling brought me to a story from 2006 in Florida, where a baby was born alive at 23 weeks while the mother waited for her abortion. The owner of the Gyn Diagnostic Center scooped up the baby, the placenta, and the afterbirth, and threw them all together into a red plastic biohazard bag and into a trash can. The owner later threw the baby out onto the roof of the building to avoid detection. After receiving an anonymous call, police found the baby’s remains six days after it had been born alive.

Then there’s the case of Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell who was convicted of killing multiple children even after they had been born, by cutting their spinal cords. The Grand Jury Report from his case reads:

He [Gosnell] also killed live, viable, moving, breathing, crying babies. He killed them by cutting their spinal cords after their mothers had delivered them after receiving excessive amounts of medication designed to induce active labor. This report documents multiple murders of viable babies. The evidence makes a compelling case that many others were also murdered…

             It was Gosnell’s standard business practice, to slay viable babies.

Unfortunately, Gosnell is not an isolated incident.

In his article “A Conversation About Our Current Moral Compass,” Winston Smith discusses America’s growing promiscuity and its growing rates of STDs. He asks himself, “Am I premature in saying ‘so much for ultra-liberal’ ideals?”

The answer is clearly “no!” Ultra-liberal ideals are precisely what have brought us to the point where so many people are so dehumanized as to leave a child to die as it screams for its life for an hour. That is evil, and there’s no way around that.

Liberals will tell us that such incidences are outliers, but that assumes that all such stories are being reported and thus we can add them up and make a statistic out of them. Obviously, that is not the case. Furthermore, outlier or not, this is precisely what liberals want. This is exactly what they have been pushing for.

Many Americans have simply embraced a culture of death, of hatred of life. What is the obvious link between abortion and STDs? The desire for cheap, meaningless sex without any consequences (Yes, yes, I know there are exceptions, but they are the vast minority of abortion cases). Liberals have separated the very act of reproducing life from life… And the results we see clearly: diseases and death and murdered babies. 

Again, pro-abortionists can claim Gosnell and friends are outliers, but he is in fact a necessity for their ideology. Babies that survive abortion destroy the parents’ desire to live only for cheap, fleeting pleasure. They would have to become responsible people and open their hearts to someone else, rather than eternally focusing on themselves. It was merely an accident, pure chance that the baby survived the abortion. How can that be allowed to dictate and destroy their lives?!

Logically and morally there is no absolutely no difference between an abortion and snipping the spinal cord of a newborn.

And just as liberals choose death, literally through abortion and STDs, and figuratively through sterile self-centered lives characterized by enslavement to passions, so they are willing to inflict violence, possibly even death to protect their chosen way of life.

Anyone who is paying the slightest attention knows that the political climate in America has intensified exponentially in recent years. The left especially victimizes anyone who dares disagree with them. Everyone today is a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, a transphobe, etc. Even Candace Owens apparently hates black people!

And with such ratcheted-up rhetoric, of course action is not far behind. Antifa is already known to be a bunch of violent thugs.

Just last week, Denise McAllister, a political commentator, author at the Federalist, Fox News guest, etc., had the gall to tweet a pro-life message:

At the root of #abortion hysteria is women’s unhinged desire for irresponsible sex. Sex is their god. Abortion is their sacrament. It’s abhorrent as women have flung themselves from the heights of being the world’s civilizing force to the muck and mire of dehumanizing depravity.

She was absolutely right to identify sex and abortion as the god and religion of liberal Americans. Every man is created by God, with an innate desire to know Him. But those who hate Him have to turn elsewhere in vain attempts to fill that void. Christians worship the God Who is Life, while hip atheists and the “religious” people they have brainwashed worship death and all the instant gratifications that allow them to divert their minds from anything serious.

McAllister received such a firestorm of hateful, violent responses, including threats of rape and murder, that she has had to go into hiding, and her house is on police watch. You can read more about her story here.

The very people who think they are heralding some brave new future are the most backwards, hateful people we have in our country.

In the heart of every man is an inclination either more towards that which is good and beautiful — towards Life, or towards that which is destructive and ugly — towards death. American leftists and their buddies in the media are running headlong death, and have been for quite some time. But they’re rapidly gaining speed now.

And this race towards death deadens the heart and robs us of our humanity. That’s how we can slaughter children in the womb and slaughter them on the table of their failed abortion and sell their body parts for profit.

We have lost our humanity, and so we rob others of their very lives.
