There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience. It supersedes all other courts. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
The highly evolved and blissfully incredulous have been known to indict the regressive tendencies of lingering monotheism by asking modern day Neanderthals, "At Auschwitz, where was this supposed God of yours?" As a rejoinder to the smacking sting of such an insolent question, one may well righteously respond, "Where was God, you ask? At Auschwitz, where was the whole of humanity?"
I will answer that question for myself. At Auschwitz, men and women of authority were justifying their wicked choices as they always have, as they always will because men and women of conscience would not act in great enough numbers to quash the mutiny against justice. So it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be for as long as mankind insists on proclaiming itself a god.
Quoting a UK Telegraph post dated March 24, 2014:
"The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as 'clinical waste' by hospitals in Britain with some used in waste to energy plants."
Unborn children that were ripped from their wombs as a decisive act of savagery were left then to suffer one last application of degradation when their bodies were incinerated as clinical waste. Burned with the rubbish.
Moreover, thousands of unborn children actually acted as a new kind of biofuel to heat British hospitals…not one hospital, mind you. That could be misconstrued as a stupid error. We're talking about multiple hospitals. We must recognize that this wasn't an aberration on the part of one or two misguided individuals. It was an accepted practice. These intolerable acts were permitted as a matter of due course without much thought to the malice of the situation because, it would seem, it never occurred to anyone that some people might find the act to be inhuman.
When this fetid practice was exposed for the evil that it is; a minister at the Department of Health naturally banned the use of human bodies as a fuel source and offered that such a practice was totally unacceptable. I guess it takes a minister at the Department of Health to state the obvious because before Dr. Dan Poulter mentioned it, a good number of hospital administrators clearly thought the act was supportable.
Did you honestly think that the problem couldn't get any worse? Worse is where the Brits are now in the abortion debate. Burning babies for heat. So where do we go from here? When will the madness end?
You know, I don't like making predictions about such matters of violence for two reasons. The first is that I might end up being wrong and I do hate being wrong about anything. The second is that I might find myself to be right, and what would that say about the trajectory of human ethos if I am…but I will make a prediction about the future of unborn babies in America nevertheless because when it comes to liberal feminists and other unbending enemies of conscience, the question about abortion must always be, "What next?"
My first prediction is that sometime in the not too distant future, American environmentalists will make the argument that using fetal remains to heat hospitals here in the US would be constructive movement towards reducing our consumption of fossil fuels. They will see such a solution to our energy needs as far superior to fracking or the Keystone Pipeline for instance. Proactively, I ask the men and women in Britain and any other proponents of this foul practice, if you thought it was so awful breathing in the soot from coal plants, what on earth makes you think breathing in human remains would be better? Quite literally, oh-the-humanity.
My second prediction is that sometime in the not too distant future, feminists will rally behind the idea of using fetal remains as a natural resource because it will underscore their argument that unborn children are not human. They will, in fact, proudly wear tee shirts that exclaim, "My choice helped to fuel your home."
My third prediction is that humanity will – as it always does – stir from its genocidal destruction to recognize how far it has strayed from sanity. One day, this chapter in American history…no matter what people say right now…will be contested with the same angry recrimination that slavery or the internment of Japanese citizens during WWII is. History will see abortion for what it is. What they won't understand is how we failed to see it for ourselves:
"Someday I will understand Auschwitz." This was a brave statement but innocently absurd. No one will ever understand Auschwitz. What I might have set down with more accuracy would have been: Someday I will write about Sophie's life and death, and thereby help demonstrate how absolute evil is never extinguished from the world. Auschwitz itself remains inexplicable. ~ William Styron (author of Sophie's Choice)
I promise you this. The world will wake up from history just as it always does. Something is going to click and eventually "What next?" will give way to "What have we done?" The delusion that the abortion holocaust has perpetuated will one day be looked at through the eyes of sane and unemotional historians – just as we now clinically dissect the insanity of Germany's Final Solution. Our progeny…or at least the progeny that survives the hospital furnace…will ask themselves, "How could so many people have gone along with these tyrants? Why didn't anyone do anything to stop this?"
In the meantime, Hobby Lobby will have its corporate conscience put on trial by the Supreme Court today, and based on the Supreme Court's recent record on civil liberty issues, this does not bode well for the freedom of religion and expression that Americans now take for granted. If Hobby Lobby loses the argument and is forced to fund abortions against what their consciences dictate, the whole of freedom will die by the command of our courts of justice:
In the Hobby Lobby case, religious freedom – our first and oldest liberty – is being "balanced" against a "right" created, historically speaking, mere moments ago, a "right" to free contraceptives. Can people not go to the drug store and purchase those drugs or products themselves? ~ Jay Sekulow of Fox News.
Civil disobedience will be the only alternative if the courts rule in favor of taxpayer funded abortion on demand. From here, we can only wait to see if Hobby Lobby will sit at the lunch counter and petition to be served or if it will bow to a law that is unconstitutional (no matter what the Supreme Court says on the subject.) Either way, history will marvel at the entitlement culture that produces women so hell-fire sure they have the constitutional right to destroy another human life at any cost that they are willing to collapse our genuinely held constitutional rights in the process.
Where is God, you ask? The court of conscience will one day ask SCOTUS, "Where were the cries of humanity and where were you?"
