A woman finds out she has conceived. She doesn’t want the new life, and she decides to use her Supreme Court-given, “constitutional right” to abort it. Someone performs the abortion, which brings the new life to an end.
It should be, it has to be, the law in every state — not a federal law, because the feds do not have constitutional jurisdiction over abortion — that an embryonic or a fetal autopsy be performed on the tissue. Not to establish a cause of death, we know what that was, but to establish a cause of life.
The DNA in the cells of the tissue will establish it was a new and unique life that existed, and was on its way to maturity. While the embryo will not reveal the sex of the new life yet, the fetus will be able to tell if the new life was to be a boy or a girl. A report should be made on the autopsy, and the coroner must issue a death certificate.
The mother should be given this information, and be required to give the new life she once had a name, to identify it on the report. If it was an embryo, she can give it a boy or a girl’s name; if a fetus, she can give it a name appropriate to what sex the new life was. A death notice should be published in the local newspaper, a church might take it upon itself to schedule a service, and the deceased new life should be interred in a proper grave.
In other words, a woman who aborts must make the same arrangements for the unborn new life as she would for any other deceased relative.
A file should be required by the state to be created with all the information on the ex new life, and once a month these files should be sent to every member of the Supreme Court, and to every Democratic member of Congress. For they are the ones who have called what has happened to the new life a right and have brought it to us. They need to see that what was aborted with their consent was not just tissue but a real identifiable person, with a name and a final resting place, fitting for any person being made in God’s image and who never had a chance to see life. The obligation of such a file should by state law go along with any completed abortion.
The remains of human tissue deserves more than to just be sucked out of a woman’s body and disposed of in the same way medical waste is dispossessed. Whatever happened to “everything we do is done for the glory of God”? How is God honored when we employ abortion on demand to millions of his creation?
What will it take to stop this?
