forget the starving and living.. barely.. right? they're not baptized nor the 'class' right? pfffft
Precisely my thought. The living are still here and could use some serious help ... but OH, we have UNBURIED FETUSES!!! It's like the RC church will pull any lame trip it can think of to garner attention and/or elicit an emotional reaction.
If you are not baptized you cannot go to heaven. It makes sense. Flowers don't grow without water.
If I were the Catholics, I'd bury them in an undisclosed location. If not, the Mormons may come along, do a postmortem baptism, and steal their souls. Which, in turn, could lead to an internecine cult war.
That's EXACTLY the very first thought I had. Mormons following some sort of fucking treasure map to unearth the unbaptized corpses of human fetuses. Like Indiana Jones, but without the caffeine. What an absolute freak show.
My barf meter is going overboard!!!!
I'm suspicious this is all to make a political / social point - fetuses are human beings and should be treated as such, even when long dead.
They missed an opportunity - they could have sold them to atheists to barbecue. Such a waste of tender morsels.
