In America, Every Baby is a “Royal Baby”

Written by John Kirkwood on July 25, 2013

This is one reason that I didn’t mind the media coverage of the royal baby. I relished it. It was the first time in a long time that they recognized a child in the womb was an actual child with a destiny to be anticipated and cheered. In a strange way it reminded me of the hype surrounding the birth of John the Baptist. And so it should. And so should every triumph of the womb. Across the globe, every birth should be celebrated! 

The British blogger, Archbishop Cranmer, recognized brilliantly the clumsy contradictions resident in the media’s split personality however –

Surely such “pro-choice” newspapers and journals (and people) should be talking about a bunch of pluripotent stem cells, an embryo or a fetus. For reports suggest that the Duchess is still in her first trimester, so this is not yet a baby and certainly nothing with any kind of destiny. At this stage, surely, it is a non-person, just like the other 201,931 non-persons who last year were evacuated from wombs in England, Scotland and Wales.

When my aunt was a missionary in Nigeria, she would walk along the rivers and by the dung pile to search for abandoned babies left to die of exposure or crocodiles. Would it be more shocking to Americans if this were the mode of infanticide that they had to “choose” instead of the comfort of an outpatient “clinic?” Those civilized souls who look down on those who tossed virgins into volcanoes stand guard over the systematic destruction of over 50 million fellow human beings and don’t reckon the irony. Those who rail against the dark pages of American history, against the holocausts, pogroms and genocides of a lesser people, proudly stand in favor of America’s hidden holocaust.

Well I for one would like to congratulate William and Kate on the birth of their baby boy and to all those who have chosen life, I am grateful.

May the birth of this child place a stone in the shoe of those who walk so casually by the graveyard of a lost generation. And may God have mercy on their souls.
