Why are four thousand preborn children slaughtered every day?

'These are the very least of Christ's brethren, the poorest of the poor. Why are these aborted babies the very least? Because they're small, helpless, utterly and completely dependent? Yes. Because in terms of what the world values, they didn't contribute anything? Yes. But the real reason is because they received the least charity. Indeed, while they lived, they received no charity at all.'

LANSING, MI (Catholic Online) - Citizens for a Pro-Life Society has announced that Bishop Earl Boyea of the Diocese of Lansing will celebrate the funeral Mass for 17 victims of abortion and preside at their burial on November 20, 2010. I wrote about these children in an article entitled "Children Found in Dumpsters in Two Cities: When our Children Become Trash"  

The Funeral Mass will be held at  St. Mary's Cathedral, 219 Seymour Avenue--located on the corner of Seymour and Ionia Streets in the heart of Lansing, Michigan. The babies will be buried at St. Joseph's Cemetery in Lansing, Michigan. The Citizens for a Pro-Life Society indicated in their Press Release, "These aborted babies were retrieved from the trash by pro-life activist Chris Veneklase on February 26, 2010.

"They were killed in January of this year at the Woman's Choice abortion clinic in Lansing and dumped into a trash container that services the office park where the clinic is located. The 17 bags that contained the babies' remains were marked with the mother's full names and the date of their abortion. CPLS joined Veneklase in several subsequent trash dumpster searches-- both of the Womans Choice clinic in Lansing and its sister clinic in Saginaw.  Extensive medical waste and several patient records were discovered."

Accompanying their Press Release the Citizens for a Pro-Life Society released this moving eulogy given by a hero of the unborn, Dr. Monica M. Miller on August 6, 1988 at the Roselawn Cemetery, Tallahassee, FL., when 721 babies, killed by abortion, were buried:

Eulogy of Dr. Monica M. Miller for the Children Killed by Abortion

"We are gathered here today to perform the seventh corporal work of mercy,  to bury the dead.  Ironically, the last work of mercy-to bury the dead- is the first kindness shown to these little ones killed in the abortion mills.
 
"Our Lord, hung on the cross, was held in scorn- reviled, hated, rejected by His own people. These unborn babies have been taken up into his suffering and when we took their bodies off of the loading dock, it was as if we had taken Christ off the cross.
 
"These are the very least of Christ's brethren, the poorest of the poor. Why are these aborted babies the very least? Because they're small, helpless, utterly and completely dependent? Yes. Because in terms of what the world values, they didn't contribute anything? Yes. But the real reason is because they received the least charity. Indeed, while they lived, they received no charity at all.   
 
"This is the key to ending the holocaust: charity. We must show real love toward those whom the world hates. We must become saints and be filled with the compassion of saints. Why are four thousand preborn children slaughtered every day? This slaughter is a harvest of hate and despair- hate for God and the mystery and beauty of creation and despair over human existence itself.
 
"A return to true Christian charity: this is what will end abortion. And it is not a very easy route, but it's the only one that will really work.
 
"These are the bodies of God's children crushed up in a scream of "no" to Him. These are real people who really lived once, who were really killed, and so over their bodies, that bear literally in their limbs the horror of their deaths, we mourn.
 
"It is the faith of the Church that must sustain us, that enduring faith that teaches against all despair that the dead shall rise. These babies, baptized in their blood, shall rise. Seven hundred and twenty-one human beings shall rise from this tomb. Justice will be done for them.
 
" Jesus has promised it to us and to them. He shall wipe every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, mourning, crying out, or pain, for the former world has passed away."

Yet, he instructed them to Pray without ceasing. Did he really mean it? I believe that he did.
