See this on Drudge?
Article with photos of animals in the womb. What is so sickening about this is the fact that while we are marveling over these precious little mammals, babies are being aborted that have been determined to be "products of conception", "masses of cells", "potential humans" and blithely disposed of in incinerators and garbage disposals.
It is a very simple and modern concept. Babies are expensive, messy, career-ending, education-wasting, impositions.
Instead we have doggy daycare, pet costumes, pet therapy, pet insurance- oh I'm sorry I meant to say "animal companion". And does it make anyone else crazy that the baby supplies- diapers, wipes, baby food share the pet aisle in the supermarket???? The Huggies baby wipes are directly adjacent to the dog chow.
As we approach Advent and Christmas and images of the Nativity are dancing in our heads (I hope) let's remember that it was the animals in the stable that worshipped (in their own dumb way) Our Lord. It is not for humans to worship or revere or adore animals. Animals are here to serve us in the divinely ordered state of existence. They are our food, our clothing, our entertainment, our livelihood and may even be our pets. But let's be clear that they are NOT our children, our progeny, our family, or our reason for living.
