Horrific Beyond Belief: Aborted Babies Burned to Heat Hospitals
I owe several of my Facebook friends an apology. When you posted status updates about aborted babies burned to produce electricity in order to power hospitals, I rolled my eyes. I assumed that you had fallen for another Facebook urban legend and that you had erred in not checking your sources. The story was too outrageous to be true.
But I was wrong.
As The Telegraph reported yesterday,
"The remains of more than 15,000 babies were incinerated as 'clinical waste' by hospitals in Britain with some used in 'waste to energy' plants."There has, apparently, been significant public outcry in Britain over this practice. But, as Dr. Albert Mohler reminded listeners this morning on The Briefing webcast, there is a fundamental inconsistency in a worldview that would allow killing babies to be considered acceptable but certain methods of cremating their remains to be considered unacceptable.
This should remind Christians that we cannot take our cues on right and wrong from this utterly-confused world. Sinners can justify the most terrible sins- even murder- not allowing their consciences to kick in until way too late. We must call out sin for what it is and call all people to Christ, the only Savior from sin, death, and Hell.
