On burying aborted children

Pro-life author William Brennan comments on the burial of aborted babies that were found in a storage container:

“A… debate raged over what to do with more than 16,000 aborted babies discovered in a huge metal storage container outside of Los Angeles in 1982. Pro-life groups were in favor of at least according the victims the dignity of a Christian burial. The American Civil Liberties Union, a staunch proponent of burning the bodies, conjured up that all too predictable concoction- violation of the separation of church and state….

Burial, especially Christian burial, is doubly threatening: Not only does it bestow upon the victims a transcendent value intolerable to civil libertarians, it also draws attention to the disturbing truth which abortionists would prefer to keep hidden from public view- the existence of actual human bodies.”

One thought on “On burying aborted children”

  1. Thinking there might be a wrong word in there… “American Civil Liberties Union, a staunch proponent of burning the bodies”, should that be “burying”the bodies?
