26 / 08 / 2010 - Why is a country horrified by cat in a bin but ignores aborted babies in bins?
A news story broke this week about a woman filmed by CCTV dumping a cat in a bin in Coventry. The cat emerged unscathed but footage of the incident, posted on social networking site Facebook, provoked angry reactions. Hundreds of people joined groups on the site, including one entitled "catch the evil b**** who put the cat in the bin", and many posted threatening messages, even death threats, about the woman. She was offered police protection because of the level of vitriol against her. The RSPCA who will now decide whether to charge the woman with animal cruelty after she was questioned at Coventry police station.
All the newspapers and TV news covered this story and people's reaction to it..."horrifying" ..."sickening" ..."disgusting" ..."the cat never hurt anyone" ..."I don't know how someone could do it to such a defenceless animal."
What the woman did was wrong. But what is really horrifying about this story is the fact that people are outraged when a cat is put in a bin yet ignore murdered babies put in bins.
In Britain, 600 little babies are brutally killed EVERY DAY by abortion. I repeat - 600 defenceless unborn babies, who never hurt anyone, are cut to pieces and torn limb from limb and dumped in bins EVERY DAY.
Where are the news headlines about this; where's the public shock, outrage and anger over the killing of these babies?
Since abortion was legalised in Britain in 1967, almost 7 million babies have been killed by abortion. Once abortion is legalised in a country, killing babies becomes the norm and is accepted. That's why Precious Life will never stop battling to ensure abortion is never legalised in Ireland. We will never allow Ireland to become a country where people are more shocked by cats in bins than babies in bins.
A few years ago Precious Life travelled to Liverpool to organise a Prayer Vigil outside an abortion centre.
Outside that British Pregnancy Advisory Service 'slaughter house' in Merseyside, we were brought to our knees in prayer for the little ones. Nobody should have to die on their own; without dignity; without love and without even a prayer; but all over Britain, and indeed the world, millions of innocent unborn children do.
For over three hours, members of Precious Life prayed outside and counselled mothers and fathers - informing them of the dangers that lay within that 'house of horrors' and telling them about what would happen to their baby.
But counselling on the streets of Northern Ireland every week hadn't prepared us for the scene that met us that day.
As I stared up at the shaded windows, we couldn’t believe just what we were witnessing. In one room we could see a trolley leaning against the window, and around every fifteen minutes, a nurse would wheel it away into another room. There, through the other window, we could see a doctor clothed in blue overalls moving to and fro, with his back to the window.
I then realised what he was doing - he was killing the babies! When he had finished, the trolley was then moved back to the other room where we could see through the window, a nurse cleaning and redressing the trolley for their next victim.
As we continued to intervene on the babies' behalf, I noticed the blue uniforms of the doctors as they stared down at us while they stood smoking, out on the fire escape, as if everything was normal. But I can tell you, all wasn’t normal - this was like something out of a horror movie.
A side-door of the building opened. A green-gowned figure wearing gloves and a big green rubber apron appeared, wheeling out hundreds of yellow bins. He stared at us with a terrible ugly grin on his face. It really gave me the creeps.
As we looked at the bins piled high, a sickening realisation gripped our hearts - the realisation that these buckets were filled with little dead babies.
A 'clinical waste' disposal van arrived and the bodies of the babies were loaded on, to be taken away and disposed of.
As I stood and witnessed this horror, I begged God to renew in my heart the fight to keep this horror out of Ireland. I pray God places the same fight in your heart. If you never want to see bins filled with dead babies in our country, contact me TODAY to join us for our Street Outreach and Prayer Vigils.
