In an update to the story about the funerals being conducted for the remains of aborted children.
The man lifted out a plastic bag about the size of a square box of tissues, opened it and poured the contents into the soil.
In an instant, the earth swallowed the ashes of fetal material that formerly was property of the Boulder Abortion Clinic.
More evidence of the comparison between slavery and abortion. Besides the use of language to change the status of a human being (fetal material) in this case the ashes are referred to directly as property.
…On Sunday, an altar server carrying a crucifix led a procession from the church to the cemetery. The ashes from Hern’s clinic were put at the foot of a white statue of Christ, along with seven smaller bags holding ashes from miscarriages given to the parish by a local hospital, LaVelle said.
Prayers were offered for aborted children, their parents and abortion providers "that by the power of God, they may be enlightened."
After some silence, the crowd sang "Amazing Grace."
…"To me, these are God’s children, and we are responsible for giving them the respect they deserve," said Bonnie Vanni, 52, a parishioner. "I’m not here to judge anyone. I want them to know God forgives them."
Outside the parish entrance, eight protesters held signs with messages such as "Don’t Exploit a Mother’s Tragedy" and "Respect Our Privacy."
Again there own rhetoric betrays them. Abortion supporters calling abortion a mother’s tragedy at least tells the truth that abortion is a tragedy. Usually the language for abortion support is stated as a choice and that the choice is neutral. If they say that one side of a choice is a tragedy then do they consider a child to be born a greater tragedy if it interferes with someone plan?
…But the practice has come under criticism from abortion- rights supporters who call it an invasion of privacy that causes more pain to Hern’s patients, many of whom undergo late-term abortions because their fetuses have potentially fatal disorders.
Now since many abortion supporter support abortion throughout the whole pregnancy then why bring up possibly fatal defects? They are not willing to reduce abortions to only these occasions so they bring this up only to obfuscate the situation. We all have more than just a potentially fatal disorder. We all will die at some point.
…State Rep. Debbie Stafford, R-Aurora, said she came to Sunday’s service because she was concerned the parish might be breaking a new state law requiring mortuaries to hold unclaimed human remains for one year before burying them.
"I’m pro-life and I respect life and I support what this group has done," said Stafford, a Protestant pastor. "I actually drove up here this morning to alert the folks here that they may be in violation (of the new law)."
She said she later learned, however, that a statute governing medical waste applies.
Hi my name is Johnny, what is yours? I usually go by "Medical waste", by my good friends call me "fetal material."
…Hern said Sunday his staff asked for Crist to return all ashes that had not been buried at the parish, but the mortuary retrieved just one box.
"They betrayed our trust again once more, in spite of all this controversy," said Hern, who did not disclose what would happen to the remains the clinic claimed.
Abortion supporters calling abortion a mother’s tragedy at least tells the truth that abortion is a tragedy.
And the equally important truth that the tragedy involves a mother.
