Abortion is Murder in the First Degree – Easter 2016, Anno Domini
5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. 6 But whoso shall offend (do harm) one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matt 18:5-6)
What hath God wrought! (Num 23:23)
For the past 24 hours, my soul has suffered at the constant image depicted by a tiny baby born in Poland after two failed attempts at abortion. It was a boy child, and a human being of the greatest innocence a human being can possess coming so directly from the Hand of God. Following birth, the baby was allowed to lay on the gurney in the operating room screaming constantly from the pain of the burning abortifacients for one hour before the little soul was set free by the merciful touch of the Angel of Death. Not a finger was lifted to relieve the pain and suffering of this little gift of God. The name of the hospital? – Holy Family!
“What hath God wrought", was the message transmitted on May 24, 1844 to officially open the Baltimore-Washington telegraph line. It is taken from Numbers 23:23. The unimaginable evil we see rampant in our world today (for which we all, to some extent, are responsible), prompts one to ask another question: :What hath Satan wrought.” We are a sick generation who have blinded our eyes (and hearts) to the Creator and His Word.

Poland Considers Banning Abortion After Baby Born Alive Dies Screaming for an Hour churchmilitant.com ^ | March 24, 2016 | Christine Niles, M.St. (Oxon.), J.D.

WARSAW (ChurchMilitant.com) - After a baby in Poland born after two botched abortion attempts was allowed to die after screaming for an hour, a national debate has re-opened over whether abortion should be banned in the country.
Witnesses say an abortion performed March 7 at Holy Family Hospital in Warsaw resulted in the birth of a live 24-week baby, who was left to scream in agony for an hour until he died. Personnel did not help the child in any way.
After the baby survived the administration of abortifacients on Friday, the doctor induced birth on Sunday, leaving the unborn baby on the changing table crying alone. No anesthetics or other care was given to the baby.
Anna Wiejak, the Polish reporter who broke the story and who is a member of the SOS Foundation to Save Unborn Children, told ChurchMilitant.com, "The scream of this child was so traumatic for the personnel that they declared that they will never forget it."
One of the medical staff reported the incident to Fr. Ryszard Halwa, A Catholic priest and director of the SOS Foundation. According to Wiejak, the employee desires to remain anonymous because of fears he may lose his job "just like a former director of this hospital, professor Bogdan Chazan, who was fired over a year ago because he refused to abort a baby."
The SOS Foundation then informed the media and legal authorities about the incident, which has now exploded in international media.
The hospital insists it acted within the law. Spokeswoman Dorota Jaslowska-Niemyska said tests on the patient, who was near the end of her 23rd week of pregnancy, showed the unborn child had Downs Syndrome. The spokeswoman claims the dignity of both mother and child were respected. She refused to comment further as to the details of the procedure.
In a statement issued shortly after the event broke in the media, the Polish Bishops Conference condemned the incident, affirming, "We believe that every person, especially one who is completely helpless and dependent on us, should be of particular concern. This is a concrete way of realizing the commandment to love one another."
And Abp. Henryk Hoser of Warsaw, through his metropolitan Kazimierz Nycz, is considering removing the name "Holy Family" from the government-run hospital. With great regret I received the information [about the baby]," said Nycz, "which significantly undermines the sense and the right to maintain such patronage" by the hospital.
Poland bans abortions except in the case of rape or where the mother's life or health is in danger. It also permits abortions in the case of fetal abnormalities only up till the point of fetal viability.
The SOS Foundation along with other pro-lifers in Poland are calling for criminal charges to be brought against the hospital for its failure to save the child's life. The Polish Doctors Code of Ethics states that an unborn child is a patient deserving of medical care, and the Polish Criminal Code deems a newborn a "child" with legal rights and protections.
The prosecutor's office has launched an investigation into the hospital to see if proper procedure was followed during and after the abortion. On Friday, the spokesman for the prosecutor's office, Michael Dziekański, said the investigation would examine whether there was a criminal violation of the law, which requires that medical care be given where "the fetus has become capable of living outside the pregnant woman's body." Such a crime would result in up to eight years' imprisonment.
Pro-lifers are also holding demonstrations outside the hospital calling for justice and for an end to abortion.
Catholics are hoping the recently installed conservative government will revisit the issue and ban all abortions. Since coming into power last October, the ruling Law and Justice Party has issued reforms more in line with traditional Catholic teaching. Its latest plans involve banning prescription-free morning-after pills as well as in vitro fertilization. Last year, Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin commented that using morning after pills amounts to "express abortion."
In response to the outrage and after being approached by the SOS Foundation and the Polish Federation of Pro-life Movements, the Polish parliament has agreed to create a special committee to draft a pro-life bill.
According to Wiejack, "The main problem is that the prime minister, Beata Szydło, is going to defend the present law, which is called abortional compromise, but I believe that if we have a chance to speak with Mrs. Szydło, she will change her mind."
She continued, "Besides, this government really needs the support of the citizens, and over 70 percent of Polish society is pro-life. ... [M]ost polititians of the Law and Justice party are pro-life. ... [T]hat's why I think it shouldn't be a problem to gain the majority to pass the bill prohibiting abortion."
Abortion was first legalized in Poland in 1932, when it was permitted under limited circumstances. That law was expanded under later Communist rule to allow abortion on demand. After the fall of Communism, abortion was outlawed in 1993, with the three exceptions above remaining.
Poland remains a predominantly Catholic country, with approximately 90 percent of Poles describing themselves as Catholic.
"The impact of this case was unprecedented," Wiejak told ChurchMilitant.com. "There were even conversions."
She commented on the meaning of this case for the abortion agenda:
This case has shown something which was covered by silence — I mean the scream of a baby dying in pain because of abortion. Every abortion means pain for the child killed in the womb. ... Abortionists really do know what they are doing. They really do know, and they lie in saying that the unborn child is only a bunch of cells, that it doesn't feel anything. This scream of a baby that we heard in Poland exposed all these lies. People are angry — angry at the medical doctors, angry at the politicians, angry at media because of pro-abortion propaganda, angry at the whole political system. They really do want change.

Moloch, Molech, Molekh, or Molek, representing Hebrew מלך mlk, (translated directly into king) is either the name of a god and the name of a particular kind of sacrifice associated historically with that god in cultures throughout the Middle East, including but not limited to the Jewish, Egyptian, Caananite, Phoenician and related cultures in North Africa and the Levant.
Moloch went by many names including, but not limited to, Ba'al, Moloch, Apis Bull, Golden Calf, Chemosh, as well as many other names, and was widely worshipped in the Middle East and wherever Punic culture extended (including, but not limited to, the Ammonites, Edomites and the Moabites). Baal Moloch was conceived under the form of a calf or an ox or depicted as a man with the head of a bull.
Hadad, Baal or simply the King identified the god within his cult. The name Moloch is the name he was known by among his worshippers, but is a Hebrew translation. (MLK has been found on stele at the infant necropolis in Carthage.) The written form Μολώχ Moloch (in the Septuagint Greek translation of the Old Testament), or Molech (Hebrew), is the word Melech or king, transformed by interposing the vowels of bosheth or 'shameful thing'.
The principal pillars of Baalism were child sacrifice, sexual immorality (both heterosexual and homosexual) and pantheism (reverence of creation over the Creator). Adults would gather around the altar of Baal. Infants would then be burned alive as a sacrificial offering to the deity. Amid horrific screams and the stench of charred human flesh, congregants – men and women alike – would engage in bisexual orgies. The ritual of convenience was intended to produce economic prosperity by prompting Baal to bring rain for the fertility of “mother earth.”
Worshipping Baal meant sacrificing human life, never your own, just the innocent newly born, so you might have prosperity here on earth.
Now that “medical professionals have perfected killing the unborn and partly born, there is a new way to prosperity and convenience.
Will you kill your baby so that you can have the payments for a new BMW instead of just driving the old Ford?
Can you please tell me the difference between Baalism and Secular Humanism? Secular Humanism is the Baalism of today.
Do you wonder what morals Barack Obama had in mind teaching his “miracle daughters”? He said, "I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby."
Baal had his babies roasted alive. Secular Humanism prefers to suck their brains out while they are alive or maybe just dismember them. All so young people are not punished with a baby.
When a woman gives up her child, now prior to birth not post birth, for the reasons of "economics" or "ability" to raise him, that child, once aborted, is in the end burnt or rather incinerated. The burnt offering to Baal-Moloch is still created and created under the exact same hopes as it has been done for centuries: the hope for a rich and easy life.
The rich and easy life is just that, easy life, but life itself is rather short. One cannot give praise for the day to come, when one can not be sure to live to see its sun rise. As such, we, as societies, continue this evil practice of sacrifice to Moloch to gain prosperity; albeit in a more sanitized version of abortion, to buy our way out of "costly" children, a gift given directly from God. In so doing we damn our souls and the souls of future generations who will grow up and be perverted by the societies thus made.
Two thousand years ago, Jesus said, But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6) Do you think sucking their brains out or dismembering them alive is offensive to these little ones?
Punished with a baby? There is a special place in hell, perhaps with a millstone.
 And, the Archbishop wonders if they should keep the name? Another tool is he.
 An interesting use of the word birth. The doctor fully intended to kill the child and botched the attempt, so he just let the child die in pain. He had not even the decency to own the process and finish the job. I wonder how he will be judged for his actions?
 Be particularly concerned when you see the word dignity, it is almost always connected with the forced termination of life here on earth and is just another was to say the person against whom the word is being used is about to be murdered.
