Nursing used to be seen as a caring profession. Now, those nurses who are deeply upset by the killings which are called 'termination of pregnancy', are shunned as over-emotional, or trouble-makers, or as unsympathetic to women 'in trouble', whereas they deserve support: and the right to avoid involvement in such evil procedures.
Something is badly wrong, when in a so-called civilised society, women are welcomed into state-funded hospitals, to have their unborn babies destroyed, helped by doctors and nurses who were trained to heal the sick.
When abortion is easily available, it changes a society, because a barbaric act has come to be seen by a majority as normal, even admirable behaviour. Doctors and the nurses who assist are involved in killing and discarding unwanted babies, as surely as if they were sweeping them away, though they once trained to heal, not to harm.
Of all the women moving towards the birth of a child, some are so determined to get rid of the unborn child that they allow surgeons, nurses and GPs to organise or carry out the death-dealing procedure of direct abortion. It's as if each unwanted, unloved baby is then put on a conveyor belt towards a mortuary, a label reading 'unwanted' tied around one ankle.
When Roman soldiers scourged and crucified Jesus, it was plain that they were killing an innocent man. They saw it as their job. No nurse or medical student or other health-care person in training should simply see it as another job, if they are taught how to perform or to assist at an abortion. With a moment's thought, each can see that it is the killing of the innocent.
There are people who search vast areas of Europe to discover the massive graves of the war-dead, to bring evil-doers to justice; yet a similar evil continues even today, as hundreds of thousands of babies are torn from the womb by doctors, at the request of the mothers, as nurses assist. It's as though, today, there are new 'war-dead': infants slaughtered in the war against life.
Those nurses and doctors who dispose of some unborn babies and adult patients, having judged them to be inconvenient or useless, are as if casting them into a pit. Yet they themselves will fall into the pit of doom, unless they repent before they die. The pit represents, for evil-doers, the perpetual alienation from God that they might freely choose.
There are unnecessary and dreadful tragedies to be seen today. God sees a terrible change taking place in our hospitals, as some doctors and nurses develop a pro-death outlook, and share their views as they persuade people that old people are useless and should be helped to die, and that 'selective terminations' are the answer to multiple pregnancies, that a diagnosis of a tiny infant in the womb with Down's Syndrome should be followed by killing of the unborn child, and that food and water can be denied to someone old or frail.
