I am the most wanted man on my island; but I'm not on my island. More's the pity.

I've looked at so many women. I've seen everything, and felt nothing.

--Homer Wells

From The Rocky Mountain News

About 100 abortion foes joined Sillstrop to grieve at a Memorial Wall for the Unborn in a graveyard at the Sacred Heart of Mary Church. They carried candles and brought flowers for an estimated 5,000 fetuses who have been buried at the church since 1996.

Catholic Church officials and volunteers plan to bury the remains from another 1,000 fetuses Sunday. The burial coincides with the 32nd anniversary today of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

The fetal remains came from the Boulder Abortion Clinic. Unbeknownst to Dr. Warren Hern, director of the clinic, the Crist Mortuary of Boulder had been picking up fetal remains and delivering them to the church.

Ok, let's see if we can all follow the story. Women go to "clinic" flush their babies down the toilet. Clinic contracts "waste disposal" to local mortuary. The mortuary then gave the cremated baby remains to a local Catholic church, which gave the remains of dead babies a decent burial.

Of course, this is "controversial". Drop a crucufix in urine: "art". Bury murdered babies: "controversy".

Thus sayeth Dr. Warren Hern:

"I am appalled that the Catholic Church again has shown its willingness to exploit the private grief and pain of women seeking legal abortions in order to advance its political goals," Hern said in a written statement. "I am also appalled that the officers of Crist Mortuary, which performs important work requiring public trust . . . have publicly admitted that they have collaborated with this cynical exploitation of private grief for political purposes."

Damn. I hope that interview was conducted over the telephone, or email. Either that, or I hope the reporter had a good face shield. I almost got hit by the spittle and foam all the way out here in Santa Fe. Let's review the inanity...

Firstly, the good Doctor is upset the Church is "exploiting" the private grief and pain of women seeking legal abortions in order to advance its political goals. This sentence in and of itself is like the Comstock Lode of blather.

"the private grief and pain of women"

What, did the Church rifle through the clinic's records and mail the women involved? Did they get a "we're burying the child you aborted on X date"? And what's with this grief and pain stuff, I thought this process was a medical procedure, like removing tonsils? I mean, it's not a person, right? It's just a sack of cells, right? So what's to grieve over? Yo Doc, did you ever mention to any of these women the whole "grief and pain" thing before you started hackin' and slashin'? I mean, you did tell them this would be a traumatic event that they would carry for the rest of their lives, didn't you? Or did you just exploit their fear and confusion to make a quick buck?

"seeking legal abortions"

Well that's the whole point, isn't it? The Church believes flushing babies down toilets know...wrong. I mean, that's like saying "legally owning slaves" or "beating his wife, within the limits of the law". What? Just because you can say, "Right now, it's legal" the Church should just say "Aww hell, got us there. We better just pack up two thousand years of moral teaching and beliefs. The Supreme Court made a decision in 1973."

"in order to advance its politcal goals"

Well? You people get all whiny whenever they have moral goals. We hear, "Don't go forcing your morality on us!" Now it's "political goals". So, what goals are the Church allowed to have, anyhow? Oh that's right, none. You just want it to go away. I mean, is this going to be added to the litany, "Those wackos, outside with their signs and rosaries. Can you believe they try to get women to give their children up for adoption, and bury the ones that get away? Lunatics!"

Don't those nutjobs realize? Moloch must be fed.

Then Dr. Hern gets all whiny about Crist Mortuary. It has to be the irony of all ironies that the mortuary's name is very similar to "Christ". How dare they take those ashes and...let them be buried in a Catholic cemetary! There are some perfectly good landfills in Boulder. Don't they have plants that could use some fertilizer?

If you're planning on dying in that neck of the woods, please contact these people. I thank you.

This wasn't some sort of political stunt. It's what Catholics call a Corporal Work of Mercy.

Boys and Girls, remember your ABC's.

Abortionists Be Creepy.
