Pretend I’m a Tree and Save Me


It’s sad that some people in this country spend more time and effort trying to save trees than they do trying to save innocent human babies.

The federal government has bucked the constitution to seize and save thousands of square miles of plant-life. Yet it hides behind bad law as it sits by and allows the massive destruction of innocent human-life. It’s a reflection of our values as a country.

When everyone starts caring about babies at least as much as they care about trees…abortion will end.

In a day and age where babies are conceived in test tubes, where body parts of the pre and post born person are sold as a commodity, in a world where the aged and infirmed are not cherished and cared for by family members but are warehoused in nursing homes or euthanized, it is not suprising that trees are given much more importance than human life. This is a horrible thing to admit of the world we live in today, that humans are expendable and even thought of as marketable goods, and everyone should be shocked and fighting this tooth and nail, but it is allowed and even praised. Until it affects them personally, some people choose to keep a blind eye in the matter. Someday, those who choose not to see what is happening to the right to life will be infirmed, and/or old, and kids or grandkids will say: “well, he lived a nice long life, let’s just put grandpa out of his misery, and free up his estate. He’s going to die anyway.” What goes around often comes around. God have mercy on us.

Yes, Matthew, when EVERYone begins to care as much – not so much ‘for trees’ but MORE than for the circumstances that exist in their own everyday lives … but everyone doesn’t – for some a husband/partner threatens to leave if the woman carries to term; the addition of a severely disabled child in an unsupported (and uninsured) family may just seem too hard too bear; a child while studying; ‘yet another’ child when there are already difficulties … And for some the embryo or later foetus is not a child ‘yet’ … some do not share our views, and some who do when placed in such a position as that outlined above, may find themselves taking advantage of a law they thought would never apply to them … And remember ‘non-treehuggers’ as well as ‘tree-huggers’ abort pregnancies, Catholics as well as Protestants, unbelievers and believers … individual decisions made where freedom is granted by law, individual consciences seared or bleeding for years thereafter… Children and grandchildren not born … Be merciful oh God for we are all sinners.

PS The pic says it all – and it may be far more effective than dismembered foetuses – for it shows the reality and humanity of the child in utero, and calls our priorities into question (both as individuals and as a society).

Great post Matthew. I linked to it on my blog and then someone picked up on it and then someone else. The power of the blogosphere, eh? Keep up the good work. God Bless!

Yes it’s sad. I think worse than this things can’t go. We will never stop fighting (me as a doctor had problems and lost some works for my reports to the Order): everybody can and must do even the most little thing he can.

As a father of two and grandfather of 5 I roll out of bed and on to my knees every day and thank God for His gifts. Sadly, prior to my rebirth, I killed one of my grandchildren using all of the excuses Satan presents at all abortions.

I found this to be very powerful. Have been thinking about a blog post to link this too….tomorrow…I should have a good one. So many thoughts going through my head tonight. I am just overwhelmed at what this country has become…..cannot execute murderers….only innocent babies.
