The Culture of Death

About 15 years ago I worked for a pro-life organization as editor of their bi-monthly magazine. Although I have been pro-life as long as I have been able to form an opinion on the matter, my association with this organization introduced me to horrors the general public simply never hears.

At times I wondered if some of the stories I heard were overstatements because the depravity and evil nature of those involved in the stories boggled my mind. But I came to realize that the abortion industry’s sanitized image—courtesy of a willingly complicit public media—is far from the truth. Abortion is a great evil against mankind and the closer you get to these purveyors of death, the realization of the moral sewage swirling around it becomes clearer and clearer.

When an abortion clinic in Maryland was ordered to stop their operations pending an investigation into a woman who had been injured at the clinic, the investigators found horrors in the abortion clinic that made them sick. The investigators found, among other evidences of great evil, a collection of jars containing the remains of the aborted babies—apparently kept as some sort of souvenirs.

Matthew Archbold of the National Catholic Register writes:

I used to think that the abortion industry were simply capitalists who allowed their greed to override their humanity. I used to think that maybe it was just feminism run amok and that cooler heads would eventually prevail. I used to think that pro-lifers were simply up against the extreme of secularized logic. Over the past few years though I’ve come to believe that it’s more than that. It’s worse than that. We’re immersed in a culture with a death fetish. Our fascination with death is boundless.
