Just when I thought things could not get worse or cause me more grief or sadness, along came an article about the services LeRoy H. Carhart, M.D. of Maryland offers to his patients.

Carhart performs abortions in the second and third trimesters. On his website he offers “Remembrances & Special Requests” services to promote healing at such a difficult time. These services consist of viewing, holding, photographing and taking footprints of their dead baby, referrals for cremation and funeral services, spiritual and a remembrance certificate.

I do not understand this. I think about an innocent baby given a shot to stop its heart from beating, inducing labor, and delivering a “typically intact stillborn” baby. Of course, sedation is given to the mother allowing her to “reach a more relaxed state.” What about the baby? Is this truly women’s health care? Carhart’s website states, “there is no right or wrong way, just ‘your way’.”

Sorry I don’t think choosing what abortion service you can have is the same as ordering a hamburger. Then receiving “a token of the precious time with your baby.” Babies are intentionally being killed, due to the deception of this idea of “choice.” One final thought, since the mother is going to be in labor and deliver a baby, why not allow the baby to be born alive and given to some family to love and cherish? Would that not be a healthier choice and way to offer true healing?

Something is not making sense.All I can think to say is, God help us, for our sin of abortion is great.
