It sounds like something out of a horror movie.

Maybe that’s why the international media mostly ignored the story.

In Ukraine and other former Soviet republics, women are being paid about $200 to have abortions and turn over their dead babies, which, in turn, are sold for over $9,000 for use in “youth injection” beauty treatments.

The dead pre-babies are cryogenically frozen before being peddled for use in rejuvenating skin and treatments of diseases.

Some women, according to a report in the London Observer, are being paid extra for having their abortions late term, producing more valuable dead babies.

The trade in dead babies came to light when border guards stopped a train entering Russia from Ukraine last month and arrested a man involved in smuggling 25 frozen remains in two vacuum flasks.

It seems Ukrainian law permits aborted humans to be passed to research institutes if the woman consents and her anonymity is protected. But police investigators found the staff at government health facilities are selling them to private clinics offering illegal therapies.

No one could have imagined such a thing 20 years ago, I suppose. Today, this revolting development is scarcely perceived as news. My guess is you read it here first.

I am half a century old and I remember what those half my age don’t: When human life was still considered sacred.

Whether it is the beginning of life or at the end, there are forces in our world today that seem very eager to shorten life. It seems to be almost an end in itself for some people.

That is the focus of the May issue of Whistleblower magazine – a special edition focused on one of the ultimate issues: “Who lives and who dies?”

If you think the debate ended with the death of Terri Schiavo, think again. If you think Terri Schiavo was an exceptional and unusual case, think again. If you think lives are not being taken routinely by starvation and dehydration, without living wills, without consent and at the urging of hospices and activist death attorneys, think again.

The world is not sliding down a slippery slope of moral confusion about life and death, it is hurtling down one.

It reminds me of what Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn said when asked how his country, the former Soviet Union, had produced gulags and death camps, mass murders and unspeakable tyranny and human rights abuses.

He made it sound simple – and indeed it was. He answered in four words: “We forgot about God.”

There is not a doubt in my mind that what is happening today in Ukraine and the former Soviet republics with trade in aborted human babies – and even more unimaginable barbarism – will spread across the planet if we continue to forget about God.

I, for one, don’t want to live in that kind of world. I don’t want to be forced to turn away from the horror to cope. I don’t want to have to pretend it’s not happening. I don’t want to see the United States of America, the only country in the history of the world founded on a creed and a strong acknowledgement of God, go the way of the rest of the world.

There’s only one thing that can stop it, I am convinced.
The answer is in II Chronicles 7:14:

 

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

 

It’s not going to be because we elect certain politicians or support certain political parties. It’s not going to be because we select the right judges. It’s not going to be because of political compromises or brilliant campaigns. It’s going to be because those who know God and hear Him repent and cry out for His help.

Don’t turn away from the evil. Don’t pretend it’s not there. Face it. Confront it. And reject it.

“A Nation Adrift” masterfully chronicles American history from Christopher Columbus to the present – and in the process, clearly documents where and how the greatest nation on earth has gone astray, as well as the way back.

“This documentary takes you on a journey,” says “A Nation Adrift” producer Brian Barkley, “from Christopher Columbus to Jamestown, from Valley Forge to the Constitutional Convention, from the Civil War to the Industrial Revolution, from the First World War to the Stock Market Crash, from FDR to the present.”

The result of this journey will give us a better understanding of where America is today, how she arrived here, and where she must turn at this critical hour.”
