Both abortion service provider Planned Parenthood and biotech company StemExpress are taking "grave robbing" to a whole new level, according to Richard Esposito, publisher of the Placerville Mountain Democrat, after the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) incriminated them in several sting videos.
"Grave-robbing has become acceptable in the name of science, and those engaged in the business can make a good buck," Esposito wrote in Charisma News.
The activities of Planned Parenthood and StemExpress, he said, are similar to "grave robbing" because they are involved in digging up bodies after burial to be able to harvest their body parts for research.
However, the babies have it worse since their bodies do not even get buried, said Christian author Alveda King, who also founded Alveda King Ministries.
King said in many cases, the dignity of the babies' lives is devaluated because of abortion. She noted that unborn babies are not even recognised as humans but rather as commodities ready for sale.
"As a post-abortive mother, I still shudder to wonder what happened to my aborted and miscarried babies; little people," she said. "When I attended a Rachel's Vineyard retreat for healing after my two abortions and miscarriage, I named and memorialised the babies. This forgiveness and healing process, available to everyone, helps to restore dignity to those lost and harmed by abortions."
She said she is thankful for organisations such as Priests for Life and other pro-life warriors who highly value human life and are working hard to restore the dignities of both aborted babies and their parents. "Because Baby, Mother and Daddy suffer in the process," she noted. "Many aborted babies never receive names, proper burials or graves. But Priests for Life is working to change this indignity."
