Why Are Some Democrats Increasingly Calling Abortions “Sacred?”
Life News ^ | Keith Riler

Posted on 08/27/2013 7:57:09 AM PDT by Morgana

My heart was warmed by the Rochas, young Hispanic parents of five who were interviewed about a Houston newborn abandoned behind a dumpster near their home. About the abandoned and overexposed baby Mrs. Rocha said, “If I would have found him, I probably would have kept him.” Commenting on the baby’s parents, she added, “God’s watching everything… it’s going to come back and haunt them.”

Voters like the Rochas must be saddened by the Democratic Party’s treatment of the little guy. Consider Wendy Davis, rising Democrat star. Ms. Davis is a Texas state senator, revered in some circles for her view that we should freely dismember defenseless children who have been in the womb for six months or more.

Davis recently enshrined what I had hoped was just one-off Pelosic lunacy. Specifically, she praised late term abortions as “sacred;” joining Nancy Pelosi, who only weeks before referred to abortion as “sacred ground.” Twice mentioned suggests “sacred” abortion is a narrative on its way to becoming an official plank in the platform.

Davis and Pelosi’s words were deliberately chosen; and the meaning of “sacred” is clear. Merriam-Webster says sacred refers to being “set apart for the worship of a deity,” “worthy of religious veneration,” or “holy.” Dictionary.com adds “consecrated” and “pertaining to religion.”

This should bother you, a lot. It is the elevation to “holy” of what we were once assured was to be “safe, legal and rare” – a very provocative, pro-active and non-neutral move. It is the proud revelation that Planned Parenthood’s stirrups and exam table is the sacrificial altar of the new liberal faith and its increasingly captive Democratic Party.

The “sacred” moniker gives lie to the purported neutrality, innocence and victimlessness of cultural libertinism and is a confession that destruction of the innocent is the far left sacrament.

And so Pelosi, Davis and the delegates to the 2012 Democratic National Convention join the ritualistic child-sacrificing ranks of the Incas, Aztecs, Ammonites, Carthaginians and modern Ugandans – all of whom elevated child murder not only to a good, but to a holy and sacred good.

In a ritual called capacocha, the Incas bludgeoned, strangled, poisoned and overexposed their little guys. In sacrifices to their water gods, the Aztecs decapitated, bludgeoned, flayed, starved, burned and extracted the hearts of up to one-in-five of their children. The Ammonites slaughtered and burned theirs, in homage to Molech. The Carthaginians killed theirs using Tophets, or roasting places. It was on these bronze statues that live and conscious babies were placed by their parents to be burned to death.

Finally, in the last few years hundreds of Ugandan children have been sacrificially slaughtered. Wikipedia offers an explanation (and an unintended creepy parallel between the Ugandan murders and the typical Planned Parenthood pitch):

A study of the Ugandan context shows great disparity between the rich elite and the average Ugandan who struggles to make ends meet. It is almost impossible for someone born in a poor family to climb up on the social ladder. … It is in such an environment that the witch doctors thrive who promise desperate people a miraculous way to bridge the gap from have-not to have, from failure to success and from poverty to wealth.

The child sacrifice parallels are obvious; but not to be outdone by these primitive peoples, in America, we have sliced, stabbed, chemical burned, dismembered, vacuumed and flushed over 55 million of our little guys to death. Sometimes we even behead them, pickle their feet and keep them as trophies. These are the “sacred” abortions, offered in homage to the god of loveless autonomy and sexual freedom.

It is on Davis and Pelosi’s “sacred ground” that the Roman sex cult has joined the socioeconomically-misguided Ugandan witch doctor – we are to fornicate freely and kill any unbudgeted children (something most children are). And finally these priestesses have confessed the sacramental nature of the act they love.

Perhaps the horror of Gosnell and the subsequent movement to establish 20-week bans have forced the confession. After all, if there is any possibility of fetal pain, justice and mercy clearly require the bans. And with post-20 week abortions being such a small percentage of total abortions, the practical effects of the bans should be immaterial to abortion providers. The logical 20-week ban has stripped Pelosi and Davis of their false cover, leaving only the demand that all abortions simply must be “sacred.” When these radicals insist the public square be void of religious conviction, they apparently mean only the old and longstanding religions that ban baby killing.

When, in our landfills, the archaeologists of the future find the remains of some of our 55 million children, they will liken the slaughter to those of the past. Our having chanted cultic mantras such as “pro-choice,” “war on women,” “cancer screening” and “healthcare” will not differentiate us from those peoples we vainly consider primitive. It will strengthen the ritualistic parallels because the pure innocence of the victims will again be so blatantly obvious.

We should appreciate the honesty, but what each of us does with this information determines if we are actually good. We can pretend Pelosi and Davis didn’t mean what they said; or we can let ourselves be interrogated by the facts and bear witness. If we refuse to think, we are consenting to ritualistic child murder just like the Incas, Aztecs, Ammonites, Carthaginians and Ugandans before. If we bear witness and choose our leaders carefully, we are virtuous like Mr. and Mrs. Rocha.

This is not a pitch for the Republican Party; it is a challenge to Christian, Hispanic and moderate Democrats to choose leaders who don’t worship abortion, to broaden your party’s sense of the common good so that it includes our most vulnerable and to love the little guy again by insisting that he or she not be ideological cannon fodder on the altars of abortion.

CLICK LIKE IF YOU’RE PRO-LIFE!

The parable of the Good Samaritan is applicable and there are certainly many good Democrats. With the appalling invocation of “sacred” abortion by some in your party, isn’t it time you stood up, brought your party back across the road and tended to your little neighbor?

Romano Guardini said, “It is necessary for us to pay our due to reality, to recognize the real seriousness of evil and corruption.” And Mrs. Rocha said, “If I would have found him, I probably would have kept him…. God’s watching everything.” Aren’t there Democrats who share the Rocha’s loving convictions and have the will to implement them?

Is it really a mystery why they consider abortion "sacred"?

Or are we too PC to admit what they worship?

Because it is sacred to Satanist devils such as them, that’s why.

The only reason abortion is sacred to the Democrats is because of the money. Abortions are done for cash only and the later the term, the more they charge. How much of this cash finds it’s way to Democrat campaign coffers? It’s a huge money laundering scheme for Democrats, similar to the unions. That’s why liberals consider it sacred and that it be protected at all costs, along with funding to Plan Parenthood.

The god of the LEFT is Karl Marx. Their heaven is SOCIAL JUSTICE.

Abortion is one of their sacraments. Other LEFTIST sacraments include euthanasia, totalitarian control, sex education, gay marriage, alternative energy, and the TESLA. They are insane—and dialogue is a waste of time.

Sacred is right.

Their behavior clearly has religious connotations.

Reminds me of Milton’s Lucifer:

Here at least
we shall be free; the Almighty hath not built
Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
Here we may reign secure, and in my choice
to reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, than serve in Heaven.

Because infanticide has always been a sacrament to the worshipers of a certain god.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a bit of feminist bumper-sticker cant: "If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament." That was supposed to be ironic, but it has become the literal truth.

In a world where one may be either pro-child or pro-woman but not both, both suffer.

Yes, indeed! You are 100% correct. But before abortion is utilized (especially for first-time "users") because they are s-c-a-r-e-d (a transposition of the second and third letters of sacred), it is not necessarily known to them just what they are doing until it is too late. Or as Fr. John A. Hardon (Mother Teresa's good friend here on earth) said:
We must put first things first to know and understand that behind every abortion is the devil, a murderer from the beginning.

Democrats don't care what their leaders do or what their party stands for. The Democrat party has never been anything but garbage, despite the clucking of neo-Confederate Dixiecrats that the "old" Democrat party was the Apotheosis of All that is Good and True and Adorable as opposed to that nasty old German Jewish ("red from the beginning") Republican party.

Abortion *is* sacred. Just not to the Judeo-Christian God JHVH. It is a sacred offering to the pagan god Moloch, aka Cronus.

Leviticus 20:2–5:

Again, you shall say to the Sons of Israel: Whoever he be of the Sons of Israel or of the strangers that sojourn in Israel, that gives any of his seed l’Molech; he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.

And I will set my face against that man and will cut him off from among his people; because he has given of his seed l’Molech, to defile my sanctuary, and to profane my holy name.

And if the people of the land do at all hide their eyes from that man, when he gives of his seed l’Molech, and do not kill him, then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go astray after him, whoring l’Molech from among the people.

(from Plato’s Republic)

There stands in their midst a bronze statue of Kronos, its hands extended over a bronze brazier, the flames of which engulf the child. When the flames fall upon the body, the limbs contract and the open mouth seems almost to be laughing until the contracted body slips quietly into the brazier.

Plutarch wrote in De Superstitiones 171:

...but with full knowledge and understanding they themselves offered up their own children, and those who had no children would buy little ones from poor people and cut their throats as if they were so many lambs or young birds; meanwhile the mother stood by without a tear or moan; but should she utter a single moan or let fall a single tear, she had to forfeit the money, and her child was sacrificed nevertheless; and the whole area before the statue was filled with a loud noise of flutes and drums took the cries of wailing should not reach the ears of the people.

Thanks. I am very serious about my post.

That’s who they worship.

I expect them to become open about their worship in my lifetime, given the speed at which depravity is becoming accepted and commonplace.

Power.

Human sacrifice persuades people of the profound imperative to support the sociopolitical system: if it’s so important that people must be killed to sustain the system, then willful slavish devotion becomes a given.

(Realized that of late in a discussion about the Incas having a complex advanced society yet had no money: nobody in the discussion gave religion the slightest reference, yet it was obvious to me that total religious devotion to a system driven by human sacrifice would naturally create a submissive culture devoid of individualistic interest in money.)

And if anyone wonders why we are not “Slouching towards Gomorrah”, but racing full throttle at 1000 mph towards Gomorrah in the last 5 years, this explains it all. Our country has allowed and enshrined the worship to the satanic God Molech, and God is giving the people over to depravity just as he said in Romans. God has allowed us 40 years to turn back to him and stop the child sacrifice and His patience is about over I think.

If our country crashes and burns and we have a major upheaval and reset, I hope the first thing we do, either as a nation or as the individual states we may break up into, is to ban abortion and ban all the other evils that have bubbled up from the sewers in the last 20 years.
