In memory of all aborted children.
We fly to thee, Our Lady, Mother of the Unborn
Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is mother of all – including the unborn child in the womb.
Exploiting Aborted Children
Thousands of aborted children have been and still are exploited. The organs and tissues harvested from aborted babies are used in different industries: the food industry (although actual food and drink do not contain the cells), cosmetics (some do contain aborted baby cells) and for vaccines and medicines (some of them actually do contain cells derived from these aborted babies). These tissues are harvested from the babies while they are still alive. There has been a long and dark history of exploiting aborted babies for the production of vaccines: see part 1 and part 2. The remains of these children are often treated as waste.
These are not simply aborted and then used for research; often there is a close collaboration between abortionist and researcher, to harvest children for the freshest possible living-tissue samples. Since the late 1950s many children have been harvested in order to produce cell lines, which are then used for various purposes, especially medical uses. The cell lines taken from aborted babies are given numbers and designations, and not names. It is easier this way to forget they were children, boys or girls, of a certain age, of a certain parentage, city, country.
The promotion of abortion-tainted vaccines has relied on at least 12 common misconceptions:
People have been pressured into accepting vaccines after being falsely told that many other common medicines are produced using aborted baby cells.
Remember that whether a vaccine is tested on abortion-derived cells or contains those cells, such vaccines are equally immoral because they rely on the exploitation and deliberate extinguishing of innocent life. Please see this article, or for a deeper analysis, this article.
Prayer of for the Protection of Life, and Repentance for Failures
Lord our God, You who are rich in mercy and with provident wisdom direct our lives, hear our prayer, receive our repentance for our sins, bring an end to all infectious diseases, just as you averted the punishment of your people in the time of David the King.
You are the Physician of our souls and bodies. Restore health to those who are in the grip of illness, raising them from their bed of suffering, so that they might glorify You, O merciful Saviour, and preserve in good health those who have not been exposed. Give eternal peace to those who have died, and comfort their loved ones.
Help us to uphold the dignity of life. In ignorance some have taken alleged remedies that were immorally sourced and manufactured. And even though we may not ourselves be directly guilty of sins against life, we repent that our witness has not been more steadfast and courageous.
Remove from us all evil effects of the medicines offered to us, remove the spiritual blindness over our hearts, and restore good health to those harmed by experimental treatments.
You are the Good Shepherd who never deserts His flock. Send forth Your Holy Spirit, O Lord, and raise up labourers for the harvest, good shepherds who will feed Christ’s flock with the Truth spoken in Love. Give them courage to bear witness to You, despising human respect and the world’s honours, and remembering always Our Lord’s words, ‘Woe to you when all men speak well of you!’
May the Precious Blood of Jesus our Redeemer cover and wash us, that we may be ever faithful to You, our Heavenly Father. By the Blood of Jesus and the power of His Holy Cross, may all demons, attempting to claim us through our compromises with evil, be bound and silenced, and sent to the foot of the Cross, for the Lord Jesus to judge them. Create in us a clean heart, O God, and renew within us a righteous spirit. Give us again a renewed joy in the Holy Spirit, that we may be more fully Your children in the sight of the angels and men.
Help us from this moment on to fight for the sanctity of life, to bring an end to the crimes against the unborn and the vulnerable. May Your Holy Spirit grant us courage, wisdom, and steadfastness.
To You be glory and honour forever, to the Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.
Every Life Matters.
The use of human embryos or fetuses as an object of experimentation constitutes a crime against their dignity as human beings who have a right to the same respect owed to a child once born, just as to every person.
