Maternal Instinct

“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet I will not forget thee”. – Isaiah 49:15 KJV Abortion is perhaps the greatest single tragedy to ever befall mankind. This thing; this evil; this abomination in the eyes of Almighty God, has claimed more innocent life than the Holocaust of Nazi Germany, and all of the wars ever fought on this planet.

“Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet I will not forget thee”. – Isaiah 49:15 KJV

Abortion is perhaps the greatest single tragedy to ever befall mankind. This thing; this evil; this abomination in the eyes of Almighty God, has claimed more innocent life than the Holocaust of Nazi Germany, and all of the wars ever fought on this planet.[1]

In the halls of justice, and in the face of the God (we say) we trust; in the name of freedom, and to appease the masses, the Supreme Court of the United States has declared war on the unborn, and has decided in Roe vs. Wade [2] that the right of an unborn child to live[3], is strictly at the whim of its mother. As anyone who is familiar with the court case or anyone who had followed the news of that decision knows – there were limits set upon the “procedure”, and the fetus is considered “an inviable tissue mass”, until it is capable of being delivered and surviving the delivery. However, a full-term baby can be murdered by abortion right up to the moment of labor, by a barbaric procedure called “partial birth abortion”. In this murderous ritual, the baby’s skull is aspirated until it collapses, and the child is removed (dead) from the mother, and the body disposed of as “medical waste”.

“Our bodies, our choice” is the feminist’s cry, and the mentality of those who feel justified, and who without conscience, commit infanticide as a matter of convenience – doing it under the guise of “Women’s Health Care”. I must concede to utter disbelief, when I realize and come to terms with not only what is being done, but the scope and magnitude of this atrocity on a global scale. I have to recoil in utter disgust at the men who do this as their profession! I must admit that I am sick at the thought of it, while sitting here compelled to write about it.

Abortion is infanticide… it is the modern-day slaughter of the innocents that “We The People” in our collective apathy have allowed to continue for far too long. During World War II, over 60 million human beings were killed or exterminated. Adolf Hitler scrambled to design “processing” facilities to dispose of the bodies… Auschwitz, Bucchenwald, Treblinka, et al., pale in comparison to our efficiency.

As these atrocities have been perpetrated with impunity over the years since 1973, it has come to light in at least one forum[4] I am personally aware of, that parental grief is beginning to surface as a form of Post-Traumatic Stress in the fathers of the aborted unborn, and it seems that men have more of a conscience, and are more deeply disturbed over the murder of their sons or daughters than the mothers are. The referenced article covers this in detail with several true-life stories of how fathers are dealing with their part of the tragedy. The crimes that are not legally crimes (anymore), are taking their emotional toll on those who either were accomplices in their commission, or who had to stand by – their hands legally tied – and know that the child they loved before it was born, was murdered in the womb against his will.

During the war in Southeast Asia, children of French-Vietnamese and American-Vietnamese parents were, most of them, carried to term despite the fact that they were conceived out of wedlock, most of them children of prostitutes. These infants were then left in orphanages to be raised by Catholic nuns who ran most of these places. The children grew up, played, laughed, and brought joy into the world in one of the most horrible and hostile environments, and in the middle of the most unfathomable nightmares of modern times. Some of us GIs were brought to tears by their laughter, and each of them was a precious soul to be cherished, protected, and loved. It is strange that some of the men in uniform cared more for those “Fuckin’ little slope bastards” than their mothers ever did… but at least their mothers had enough dignity, humanity, and had enough “compassion” as Isaiah called it, to nurture them to term, and then – only out of inconceivable adversity, were these children consigned to the orphanages.

As you read my book on Vietnam[5], you will see that a lot of it focuses on the children. Oh, if only the innocent could have been spared being the brunt of political folly! In Southeast Asia, children were part of the landscape – they were unavoidable – and for me, it took only the one whose name I never knew, to burn the image of his soul into my heart as he died in my arms[6]. It took just one to impress upon me, the awful magnitude of injustice, the scope of the mindless carnage, and the stark reality of what Satan is capable of when Man is a willing participant. It is no different here, in peacetime than it was over there during the war… we’ve just learned to sterilize our sins, and hide them from the public view. We’ve even named them something different – the Orwellian NewSpeak that cloaks the transgressions – and we cower of being justly accused. We invent lofty principles such as “Women’s Rights”, shout slogans such as “Our bodies, Our choice”, and lobby the political hacks of the court to make legal in the eyes of Man what is a sacrilege and an abomination in the eyes of God.

The courts and the juries which decide “right and wrong” – instinctively know that abortion is really the murder of a human being sub nom[7]. This is illustrated by the recent conviction of Scott Peterson on two counts of murder (one for his wife, and the other for the child she was carrying), and a similar case in which a woman was sentenced to 12 years in prison because the baby she was carrying died as the result of her cocaine addiction.[8] We cannot continue to condone this legal antimony and claim that a fetus is NOT a human being – entitled to the same Constitutional protections as the rest of us (what little protections are left). Because the public is not confronted daily with the horrors of this Holocaust of the Innocent, it is, as the old adage goes, “Out of sight, out of mind”.

Instead of leaving 347 dead bodies lying in the dirt like the mindless massacre at My Lai, we perform a greater atrocity on a personal level; we do it under cover of flesh and blood in the most private and sacred recesses of humanity. We invade the very cradle of life, committing acts of barbaric butchery against the most helpless and the most innocent; we do it away from the eyes of Man, and we think – it is hidden from the wrath of God. We operate in the feigned ignorance of God’s law, justifying what we do with our laws.

In the place of a proper burial for the bodies of these innocent souls who have been martyred for our convenience; a burial which would, at least acknowledge their humanity, their frail little bodies are dismembered in the womb, and the bloody pieces disposed of as medical waste in pink plastic bags stenciled with the international biohazard symbol.

No, my friends, it seems that there is no limit to what we as a nation can justify behind the veil of a mis-interpreted Constitution. There is no limit as to what we, as a nation can enact into law and perpetrate in the name of “Women’s Rights”, “Health Care”, “Personal Privacy” or other Orwellian constructs of the English language. There is no limit to the cognitive distortions we will fabricate to absolve ourselves from the consequences (blessings in disguise) of our moral turpitude. On the other side of the coin, we engage in similar distortions of fact, fabricating and persecuting acts of affection as forms of child abuse, trying to mollify[9] infanticide with plastic sincerity and feigned righteousness, pretending to “protect” the innocent, and in reality, destroying the family and endangering the fabric of our society. And isn’t it quite the coincidence that the same women’s groups who sanction abortion and claim it is their “right” to murder the innocent child within them, are the very same ones spearheading the modern-day “sexual harassment” and “child-abuse” witch hunts?

Yes, ladies, it is your body, and it is your choice, but unless you were forced into the act, the man has just as much right to the child you carry as you do. If you had the right to choose, there certainly were choices that you should have made beforehand. You had the choice not to have sex, and the choice to use contraceptives (or insist that the man use them). Now, having not made those choices, you ask the law to look the other way, and force your partner to be an accomplice to your irresponsible and cowardly act in the commission of infanticide! By sheer numbers, you petition the courts to absolve you of your responsibility, and in the very same moment, the rights of the father have been usurped; his feelings, his emotions, and his “rights” are not even considered. He has no say in the matter, and neither do the taxpayers who are forced into being accomplices after the fact by their albeit unwilling funding of some of these “clinics”. It is about time that the men whose children were murdered in the womb against their will, and sometimes without their knowledge, stood up and made their voices heard!
