Planned Parenthood and Resurrection Men


Resurrection men going about their grisly business.

Unless you are a fan of Victorian history or literature, chances are that you have never heard of the term resurrection men. Resurrection men (also known as body snatchers, but I prefer the term resurrection men) were men paid by doctors to dig up the bodies of the dead. These corpses were then used for dissection so that the doctors could learn how the body works. This job was highly illegal and had to be done under the cover of darkness.

When I first heard of the five videos (so far) exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby body parts, I thought of the resurrection men. In many ways, the two are very similar. Both disturb the rest of the dead for use in medical experiments. Both are also highly illegal. Both are for profit. However, back in the day there was a lot more outrage over body snatching than there is over Planned Parenthood’s sale of baby body parts. In fact, there were several riots when people learned about loved ones being dug up for use in experiments.

Those who support Planned Parenthood are making arguments that could have been used to defend the use of resurrection men hundreds of years ago. These heartless people claim that PP is not profiting from the sale of these body parts, that they are going used to further medical research. What the bodies are used for is beside the point. PP is profiting from the murder of those who cannot defend themselves. These people claim that PP is only charging a transportation fee. Based on the prices that PP is charging in the videos, they must be making deliveries in a fleet of Hummers.

There was a pair of resurrection men who operated in a similar fashion to Planned Parenthood. The infamous Burke and Hare operated in the 1820s and decided that the best way to get fresh corpses for their clients (and more money) was to commit murder. The two men murdered sixteen people before they were caught. Hare was able to testify against his partner in exchange for immunity and Burke was hanged. Like I said, the public was more outraged about this behavior in the past.

As a country, we have to awake from our slumber and realize the evil that is going on in our world. This Planned Parenthood scandal did not come into being overnight. It had been happening for a long time and no one did anything about it. That time is past. We must storm heaven with prayers and our politicians with calls, texts and emails demanding that this madness stop. If we do not stop soon, I have no doubt that the US will feel the wrath of an angry God.

What is Laetare Sunday?

Today is Laetare Sunday, also known as the fourth Sunday of Lent. Laetare Sunday is one of the most solemn days of the year. It takes it’s name from the first word of the entrance antiphon or introit: “Laetare Jerusalem: et conventum facite omnes qui diligitis eam: gaudete cum laetitia”, “Rejoice, O Jerusalem: and come together all you that love her: rejoice with joy”. On this one day, the Church interrupts the solemn and penitent air of the previous days and weeks of Lent with words of joy and rejoicing. Why? It seems so out of place during a time when we have been constantly reminded since Ash Wednesday to drive sin out of our lives with prayer and fasting. To suddenly be called to rejoice seems to be out of character for the season.

Golden Rose by Giuseppe and Pietro Paolo Spagna. Rome, around 1818/19. Kept today in the Imperial Treasury in Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna.

However, this one day of rejoicing in the middle of Lent is a sign that the Church deeply understands the needs of her children. She knows the we need all the encouragement we can get. So in the midst of our penance and mortification, the Church gives us a preview of the coming joys of Easter to give us the courage to finish the race, to fight the good fight.

On Laetare Sunday, the priest wears rose colored vestments, instead of the Lenten purple, as a sign of rejoicing. This tradition originated from an ancient papal ceremony called the Blessing of the Golden Rose. The practise is thought to have originated in the Middle Ages. The pope would often bless a golden rose either before or during the Laetare Sunday Mass. Afterwards, the newly blessed rose would be sent to a Catholic monarch, church, or city as a sign of honor. Pope Innocent III said the following: “As Laetare Sunday, the day set apart for the function, represents love after hate, joy after sorrow, and fullness after hunger, so does the rose designate by its colour, odour and taste, love, joy and satiety respectively.”

Now, go forth and rejoice for the glories of Easter are close at hand.
