Baby, It's Cold Outside

When you see a ghoulish headline within days of celebrating the birth of Christ, it is most certainly distressing. And yet there it is: "UK Scientists Can't Wait to Get Their Hands on Thousands of Frozen Human Embryos."

So while this winter melody beckons a loved one to remain inside where it is warm, we cannot offer this same solace for these embryonic children. And as we know all too well, the reasons are questionable. Some parents want to keep these babies in cold storage for later use. But the scientific ghouls plan to use them for experimentation and ultimately kill them.

The scientific community debates about this second practice, yet the simple truth is that the in vitro fertilization industry is on the move. According to a Yahoo article, "The In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Market size was worth around US$ 584.78 million in 2022 and is estimated to hit approximately US$ 1280.61 million by 2029. Due to a variety of driving factors, the market is predicted to rise at a significant rate."

What is astounding about this prediction is that the topic addresses the financial market growth in a business that is based on manipulation of human beings as though they were chattel, not people. But that is the point, after all. The preborn are not worthy of respect in the world today, and as one commentator explains: "Frozen embryos are a reminder of what happens when we commodify human life. Those preborn babies can [be] languishing in frozen storage for years, being divided and destroyed like property."

Waxing cold to God's plan for parenthood is not exclusive to the cryopreservation of the human embryonic children industry. Such attitudes spill over into the entire quagmire created by the genderphobia crowd. The Biden administration, always at the forefront of such dark enterprises, leads the cadre of the mental madness contingency. A recent article in the Catholic World Report states:

The administration has attempted to remove the words "mother" and "father" from federal statutes and regulations in a misguided attempt at being what a proposed new regulation describes as inclusive. Focusing on "the existence of and legal needs of diverse family structures" the proposal intends to replace "the gender-specific terms 'mother' and 'father' with the gender-neutral term 'parent'" in rules and statutes governing Federal child care programs. The regulation also seeks to reject the use of the "gender-specific term 'paternity' with the gender-neutral 'parentage'" in the programs the agencies support.

To folks embracing the misguided positions of the gender-inclusive community, there is no need to expect husbands and wives to be the only ones capable of bearing children. After all, for their purposes, embryos in petri dishes subsequently placed in the wombs of surrogates suits their purposes perfectly. Such individuals have long ago abandoned the plan set before us by our Creator. They have consciously chosen instead to put man in control of nature.

For them, and sadly for too many mainstream Catholics as well, practices such as in vitro fertilization, cryopreservation of human embryos, and the like are all part of the acceptable choices couples--both same sex and otherwise--deem welcome.

These tiny frozen embryonic children are caught in the crosshairs of these sexually charged conversations. They are left in the limbo created by those who have chosen to defy nature, manipulate the procreation of children, and pursue their self-serving goals at any cost. This reminds me of Pope Benedict XVI's wisdom in Donum Vitae:

Such deliberate destruction of human beings or their utilization for different purposes to the detriment of their integrity and life is contrary to the doctrine on procured abortion already recalled. The connection between in vitro fertilization and the voluntary destruction of human embryos occurs too often. This is significant: through these procedures, with apparently contrary purposes, life and death are subjected to the decision of man, who thus sets himself up as the giver of life and death by decree. This dynamic of violence and domination may remain unnoticed by those very individuals who, in wishing to utilize this procedure, become subject to it themselves. The facts recorded and the cold logic which links them must be taken into consideration for a moral judgment on IVF and ET (in vitro fertilization and embryo transfer): the abortion-mentality which has made this procedure possible thus leads, whether one wants it or not, to man's domination over the life and death of his fellow human beings and can lead to a system of radical eugenics.

Baby, it may be cold outside, and you may feel rejected and unloved, but for those who disregard your unrepeatable humanity, a special place in the fires of Gehenna awaits.
