Soylent Green, British Incinerators, and Kermit the Abortionist

Those of us who were alive during the Kennedy Administration are old enough to remember the 1973 Sci-Fi flick called Soylent Green. It starred Charlton Heston, who played a detective who stumbles upon the origin of a new foodstuff that the government has developed to solve the world's food shortage. To this day the end scene of Heston being carried off on a stretcher sends shivers through me. If you think you might watch the movie, don't watch this clip. In fact, don't read this post until you have seen the movie. Here is a clip of the famous scene.


That movie came to my mind this morning when I read a headline from the British news agency The Telegraph. The expository story reads in part:
 The bodies of thousands of aborted and miscarried babies were incinerated as clinical waste, with some even used to heat hospitals, an investigation has found.
Ten NHS trusts have admitted burning foetal remains alongside other rubbish while two others used the bodies in ‘waste-to-energy’ plants which generate power for heat.
Last night the Department of Health issued an instant ban on the practice which health minister Dr Dan Poulter branded ‘totally unacceptable.’
At least 15,500 foetal remains were incinerated by 27 NHS trusts over the last two years alone, Channel 4’s Dispatches discovered.
The programme, which will air tonight [March 24], found that parents who lose children in early pregnancy were often treated without compassion and were not consulted about what they wanted to happen to the remains.
Such disregard for human life is incomprehensible to normal-minded people. Only savages or animals could so callously toss the remains of a murdered child into the trash bin. It takes a monster then to light the fire that consumes these precious lifeless bodies. I cannot even think of a name fitting for those who justify it as "waste-to-energy." Satan comes to mind, though.

Sadly, the incineration of babies is not happening only in the UK. It is happening here in the good old U.S. of A. In fact, infamous criminal abortionist Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted last year of killing three babies born alive, was also accused of illegally burning the bodies of the babies he had aborted. He used a company called Stericycle to do the dirty work. That company is now under investigation also for its tactics in disposing of the human remains that never got a chance to enjoy a precious breath of air in their lungs or the warmth of their mother's touch.

Charlton Heston reaches out a bloody hand as he
pleads for people to listen to the truth.
"Soylent Green is People," cried Charlton Heston as he was carted away, his arm outstretched as if grasping for a lifeline, beckoning those around to listen to the truth and to understand what the horrible truth of Soylent Green meant for mankind.

In the end, understanding the truth about abortion will only come if people have an unfettered respect for life. Consider this blog post my outstretched, grasping hand.
