I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen carnage—meaning: the bodies of human beings that have been torn into chunks of flesh, or meat—and seeing this has always broken my heart. Not right away, of course, but afterward; when I’ve had time to calm down and reflect on what I’ve seen.
In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, “The medical examiner’s office received a total of 19,916 human remains, which included fewer than 300 intact bodies or torsos. It identified 10,190 body parts, some as small as a finger tip, primarily through DNA testing. About 9,726 remains remain unidentified.”
Although we don’t like to think about it, the fingertip of an unborn child who has been legally killed by an abortionist would also be identified as being “human remains.”
In short, this is indisputable scientific evidence that the unborn child is a human being. But we already knew that, didn’t we?
The death of any one human being diminishes us all, because we are all involved in humanity.
And we wonder why life seems so cheap today, and why the U. S. military can kill so indiscriminately?
Phenomenologically, meaning that if we were to observe the appearances of abortion on demand (as the abortionist does) we would see abortion for what it is: the intentional, violent destruction of an innocent human life.
Phenomenologically, this is not dissimilar to the appearances we observe when we view the Apache attack helicopter gunner as he intentionally, violently destroys the innocent human lives of those two Iraqi men who are trying to help the wounded man who is crawling on that street in New Baghdad (in 2007), which has now been revealed by the WikiLeaks video.
Perhaps WikiLeaks will someday release a video of an abortionist killing an unborn child. Phenomenologically, we would then be able to see abortion on demand for what it really is: the intentional, violent destruction of an innocent human life.
As a matter of fact, with all of the hoopla surrounding the release of the WikiLeaks video of that Apache attack helicopter killing those innocent men, one would think that people had never seen a human being killed—violently—before. But then I suppose that most people never have seen this.
And maybe that’s our problem. I mean, what do we think has been going on in Iraq for the past seven years? And what, exactly, do we think has been going on in the abortionist’s clinic . . . for the past thirty-seven years?
Perhaps if more people were to observe carnage—meaning: the bodies of human beings that have been torn into chunks of flesh, or meat—their hearts would be broken too; like mine is.
