The Ghost Of Their Ship

    There is a poignant Twilight Zone episode (which most of them were) in which a World War II German submarine commander deliberately attacks and sinks a British passenger ship, killing all the men, women, and children on board. The commander's subordinate wonders aloud to his superior if there is not a special kind of hell for people like them. Pressed further by his captain, the subordinate says that perhaps their punishment would be to spend eternity riding the ghost of the ship they had just sunk. He states that those they killed could only die once, but they would die a hundred million times. Of course this is exactly what happens to the commander, his deeds have sentenced him to "Ride the ghost of that ship every night."
      This, I pray, is the comeuppance for "Dr." Deborah Nucatola, the Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood who has recently been made infamous as a result of an undercover video. I am sure most of you have seen the video to which I refer, in which this doctor who would be more comfortable in the company of Joseph Mengele than in the company of Albert Schweitzer, talks casually and ghoulishly about essentially harvesting organs from aborted babies. Ms. Nucatola callously recounts how they can crush a baby in such a way as to harvest the valuable organs in the most efficacious manner.
     Even though I have been a lifelong defender of life and virulently opposed to abortion, I always felt uncomfortable when I saw those pro-lifers on the side of the road holding up pictures of aborted babies. I felt that it went too far. But I was wrong. We, on both sides of the abortion issue, have become too comfortable with the word and have lost sight of the barbarity of the act. The taking of innocent life for any reason is wrong, whether it is a booby-trapped terrorist blowing himself up killing school children in the process, or an abortionist like Ms. Nucatola taking the life of a baby in the womb in order to harvest his organs for profit.
     The video showing the Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood describing in gruesome detail the ending of an innocent life is not an anomaly, but rather it is a stark reminder of the horrors of this "procedure" that is repeated thousands of times every day in this country. And those like Deborah Nucatola who willingly participate in and encourage this Holocaust against innocent lives should be prepared that they will have to answer for their actions, if not in this life, in the next. Where they will ride the ghost of their own ship for eternity, feeling the pain for themselves of being ruthlessly aborted and torn apart. As the man said, their victims can die only once, but they will die a hundred million times, every night, for eternity.
