Video of Aborted Babies Whose Bodies Were Retrieved from Trash

Warning: This 1988 Video Contains Graphic Content — http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SKu3y9_4Wqw This 10 minute video shows close-ups of 4 aborted babies prior to burial in 1988—taken from the trash as they were left out on a loading dock at the Vital Med pathology lab in Northbrook, IL. Citizens for a Pro-life Society and the Pro-Life Action League retrieved over 5000 bodies from the Vital Med trash and provided these victims with humane burials. The babies in the video were buried by CPLS with 1200 others at Holy Cross Cemetery, Milwaukee, WI, Sept.10, 1988. In 1988, Citizens for a Pro-Life Society and the Pro-Life Action League retrieved over 5000 bodies of aborted babies from the loading dock of the Vital Med pathology lab in Northbrook, IL– aborted babies shipped to the lab from abortion clinics all over the United States and simply left out for trash pick up to be burnt with medical waste. At the very same time CPLS also discovered that the Pet Lawn pet cemetery was burning the bodies of aborted babies from 3 Milwaukee abortion clinics– Bread and Roses Women’s Health Clinic, Affiliated Medical Services and Imperial Medical Services. To expose this atrocity, Monica Migliorino Miller, Director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society (then called Citizens for Life) and Sandy Schultz, a Milwaukee pro-life activist appeared prior to the burial in 1988, on the very popular WVCY ‘In Focus’ television program, hosted by Vic Eliason. Perhaps for the first time since abortion was legalized in 1973, the actual bodies of aborted babies were shown on live television–babies retrieved from the Vital Med lab. Thousands of people watched this...

What Does It Mean To Be Human?

One of the most fundamental questions that is increasingly facing bioethicists and society alike is the question, "What does it mean to be human?" "In what consists the act of being human?" "Is my humanity a 'bodily' humanity?" In every area of philosophical concern, we are always thrown back to these basic questions… I hold that every human being is a human person, and every human person is a human being. I also hold that the existence of a human being, say my own existence, began when my bodily existence began, that is when I was conceived. There are some who do not maintain that human beings are human persons as I do. These differences in view indicate that here we are faced with a problem about the recognition of what we take human beings to be as we experience them, and so as we experience ourselves. Obviously, the facts, say, about our embryonic beginnings-as much as the beginnings of other animals – are well known to biologists and to most of us; the facts are the same, they are written in good biology books. Yet these facts, these realities, are seen to be different, interpreted to be different; so different that some would say: "now at that stage there is a human being in its embryonic form." Another would say, "there is no human being at all; we have only a blob of cells," while still others would say "we have a potential human being, but not a full human being." Now if the account of the facts is biologically the same, for we do not quarrel much...
