Unbearable Techniques Used by Dr. Tiller are Part of Culture Living Chastisement

Today in Spirit Daily, Michael Brown, offers an excellent commentary on his perceptions of some of the spiritual dimensions surrounding the pro-life battle in America:

It could not have come at a worse time. Just as the cause of fighting abortion was reaching historic momentum (a new poll showed a pro-life majority in the U.S. for the first time since that poll has been conducted), there is a pro-life murder.

We live in a culture of hatefulness, as well as a culture of death. Hate is heard all around. As for Dr. George Tiller: we can not judge him. We don't know what was going through his mind. He thought he was being compassionate -- or so it is portrayed. His father (who was killed with his mother and sister in a plane crash) was an abortionist. There were family issues here. There was at best spiritual blindness. Killed in a church!

There was also something very twisted here. The clinic owned by Dr. Tiller (who originally had wanted to be a dermatologist, but who took over the family practice) performed a reported 60,000 abortions -- many into the ninth month, the "late-term" ones often for reasons of "mental health" (or because a baby was seen as defective) and conducted by putting a drug in a long needle through the woman's abdomen and into the infant's beating heart.

In a fashion that can only be described as macabre, Dr. Tiller's clinic not only killed the unwanted child in chilling fashion, but offered: photographs of the mother with the child (if the parents wanted this, before disposal), "baptism" by a chaplain who regularly dropped by, footprints, handprints, a certificate of miscarriage, cremation, a urn, or burial in Wichita or wherever the mother chose. We had a link Monday showing one mother who terminated her baby for cystic fibrosis and posed cuddling the gruesomely aborted infant on a bed with flowers and a picture of Jesus. We removed the link because it is simply too upsetting.

Something very extraordinary and spooky was at work there in Kansas and more incredible than the blindness or whatever of Dr. Tiller is that the United States and a "good" society could for a moment allow this. As a result, we see chastisement all around us. America is melting down. While many wait for a singular event (God setting us straight), there already are tragedies everywhere we look. We are in a time when we must pray for protection (which will work) because everyone seems afflicted whether with emotional upsets, family divisions, career problems, financial difficulties, or sickness, especially cancer, and in particular cancer of organs (breast, prostate, cervical, ovarian) associated with reproduction. A major chastisement is in progress. It will intensify. It will precipitate. Kevorkian. Schiavo.

You want what's really rich?

According to the ACLU and other abortion-supporting Lefties, it's "cruel and unusual punishment" to inject digoxin into the veins of an anesthetized convicted murderer, because if he's not sufficiently anesthetized the digoxin might cause "excruciating pain".

Digoxin is the same drug Tiller would inject directly into the heart of an unanesthtized baby whose only crime was that he mother didn't think she could cope with raising him.

It's "humane", "painless", and even "heroic" to do to a baby what it's "cruel" to do to a convicted murderer.

How true. Those who support abortion seem to be extremely "selective" in their outrage. The rationalization process is very similar to the cold and callous decision-making Nazi doctors made when "selecting" whether those first appearing to them in the concentration camps would live or die. When applied to those who appear inconveniently dependent, disposable, "not-quite-human," such thinking can be disturbingly utilitarian and, to our collective shame as Americans, sadly, completely indifferent to any pain or suffering.

There is a prayer on Fumare at "http://fumare.blogspot.com/2008/11/powerful-prayer.html" that the author said the Lord told him is powerful and effective in stopping abortion and those who promote it. He said:

"'Pray through the intercession of aborted babies.'

This came my way and there has been a great deal of confirmation that God is asking us to pray through the intercession of aborted babies.

'Specifically ask those babies who have been so brutalized with arms and legs torn off in the womb, to offer that suffering for a pro-life victory in Christ our Lord.'

He ends with these words, 'It is a powerful prayer.'"

Along the same lines as the author, I offer this prayer:

"I specifically ask those babies who have been so brutalized as to have had arms and legs torn off in the womb, or any other painful and horrific abortion procedure, to offer their suffering for a pro-life victory in America, through Christ our Lord and His Blessed Mother, who carried Him tenderly in her womb.

Their blood is crying out from the ground (Genesis 4:10). Their blood is our condemnation as a nation before the Lord. I cry out to them and to the Lord, 'Please forgive us!' 'Please heal our land'!"
