Ghoulish Progress: The Abortion Culture and The Fires of Baal

Written by Paul Hair on March 30, 2014

Hospitals in the United Kingdom reportedly treated the bodies of dead babies as both trash and fuel for energy, and while authorities denounced this monstrous practice it is the latest reminder that Western Civilization disregards the sanctity of innocent life and has descended to the darkest depravities known to mankind.

The Telegraph reported that the barbarism was not rare in the socialized health system and even detailed the euphemistic name under which some of the savagery took place:

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.

This is truly horrifying but not shocking. Many people in Western Civilization view abortion as morally acceptable. And if society believes that murdering the most helpless and innocent among us is okay then it isn’t surprising to learn that people thought it was okay to burn the “clinical waste” they had just murdered.

And while what happened in the U.K. is terrible we in the United States are no better. Western Civilization as a whole has become utterly wicked. There now are no substantial differences between how we treat innocent life and how those who “built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal” (Jeremiah 19:5, NASB) regarded it during biblical times. Some might even say we have surpassed them.

A few years ago pro-life organizations accused Pepsi (and other companies) of using fetal cells for flavor testing. Pepsi denied this but apparently discontinued participating in the practice to which the pro-life groups objected.

And society has considered using the eggs of aborted baby girls to create other babies through in vitro fertilization. In other words, baby girls who have been murdered before they had the chance to be born might someday be the mothers of other babies.

Then there is the sick sociological practice of allowing people to sue for “wrongful births”—and win. If your kid is deemed too fat or if society thinks that your spanking him is wrong, the authorities may come and take him away by force. But if you are outraged that you missed out on the chance to murder your child because someone didn’t tell you about a birth defect before he was born, society will not only let you keep him, it will also award you a fortune for your troubles in having to deal with the burden of his life.

So when the people in the days of the Bible completely gave themselves over to evil they sacrificed their children in the fires of Baal. We essentially do the same thing today when we murder our children for our convenience and pleasure. But we take the evil a step further. We harvest their bodies. And we reward those who are denied the opportunity to sacrifice their children for their convenience.

The U.K. has seemingly apologized for its hospitals incinerating humans as waste and for energy but only time will tell what the long-term outcome of this will be. Will it cause society to rethink its practice of human sacrifice and once more outlaw it? Or will the enemies of the human race double down on their evil and fight harder to keep it legal . . . all while they find new ways to denigrate humanity?
