He knows them, they are His wonders

Priests for Life has all the undercover Planned Parenthood videos linked here including the one released today where Holly O’Donnell struggles with her eyewitness account of seeing a baby boy born intact after an abortion. She struggles to hold back emotion as she recounts seeing his tiny heart beating and was asked to follow through with orders to harvest his little brain.

Recently, I struggled through a series on the History Channel detailing the horrors of Hitler’s Final Solution. How, I ask you, is this any different?

It’s interesting that in the Evening Prayer of the Divine Office today, this was read from Psalm 139. As I prayed it, I thought of that little baby’s face and all the baby parts that were in all the videos and how they are God’s created beings: He fashioned them, He knows them, they are His wonders, He knew them before they came into being.

 

For it was you who created my being,
knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I thank you for the wonder of my being,
for the wonders of all your creation.

 

Already you knew my soul,
my body held no secret from you
when I was being fashioned in secret
and molded in the depths of the earth.

 

Your eyes saw all my actions,
they were all of them written in your book,
every one of my days was decreed
before one of them came into being.

—Psalm 139 Divine Office Evening Prayer

They are not specimens for tissue procurement.

Their body parts are not negotiable; they are not “items” to be harvested and sold.

They are babies, human beings made in the image and likeness  of God.

And this is pure evil.

Please Lord, help us bring an end to abortion.
