Dear brothers and sisters in Christ. I believe that the souls which were seen by St John under an altar (Rev 6:9-11) are members of God’s elect that have been killed by feticide or infanticide. That’s because they are given robes that are already white, instead of washing their existing robes white in the blood of the Lamb, as the saints before the throne did (Rev 7:7-14). This would mean that the souls under the altar were killed before they were old enough to sin. I pray for these souls, because the text says they must “rest” (ie. they must stay where they are) until their number is fulfilled, and that won’t happen until we abolish the manner in which they are being killed. So, by praying for them, we are asking God why it is taking so long to abolish human feticide and how we go about getting it abolished.
Here is the answer I’m getting. We live under the “innocent until PROVEN guilty” precept, and we have been trying to PROVE the wrong thing. We have been trying to prove that human life begins at fertilization even though we are only able to prove that human life begins no later than implantation. I used to think the DNA data was proof that human life begins at fertilization. But if that were the case, then why are half of catholics still pro choice? The only thing that gives legs to their position is the idea that we CANNOT prove that human life begins before abortions are done. But if we go about it the right way, then we CAN prove that human life begins before abortions are done. The best way to prove that human life begins before abortions are done is to prove that human life begins no later than implantation.
It is incredibly easy for us to do this. All we have to do is to think about why we have a belly button. It’s because our mother used to give us oxygen and food thru our belly. She did this from the moment our body became attached to hers (implantation) until the moment our body became detached from hers (birth). Our body is conceived at fertilization, but it does not start getting oxygen unless and until it can get it from the mother’s bloodstream by implanting in her womb. That can happen about a week after fertilization. The problem with us trying to prove that life begins at fertilization is that we have to prove that a person can survive without oxygen for 7 days. Also, it causes both positions (pro life and pro choice) to overlook the significance of implantation. But once we understand the purpose of implantation, we will understand that nobody with a belly button has a right to kill anybody who is getting oxygen and food through the belly.
Consider the Lord’s body. He was continuously getting oxygen from the time His miraculously conceived body successfully implanted in Mary’s womb until the time He died. Then, 3 days later, His body miraculously started getting oxygen again and has been continuously getting oxygen ever since. Also, consider Adam’s body. He became a living soul when the breath of life was breathed into his NOSTRILS (Gen 2:7). It had to be his nostrils rather than his belly, because he came from the ground rather than the woman. With us, we start off getting oxygen from the oxygen that God is giving our mother through her nostrils.
Please do not think this would loosen church teachings. Even if human life begins at implantation, it would still be a mortal sin for married couples to use birth control. That’s because, in marriage, it is GOD who joins the two cells (sperm and ovum) into one cell (zygote). If God joins the two flesh into one flesh, then He also joins the two cells into one cell; and man must not cause it to dissolve by taking a birth control pill. So, even if it is not a murder, it is still a mortal sin. Also, we don’t have to prove that life begins AT implantation, only that life begins NO LATER THAN implantation. I’m convinced that human feticide will not be abolished until we start doing that, or the Lord comes again, whatever happens first.
If you have not asked God why it’s taking so long to abolish abortion, then I think this year’s feast of the immaculate conception would be a good day to start asking, because I think it’s something that our Blessed Mother is praying for us to know. If you disagree with the answer that I just shared, then please pray for the answer and share it; because I don’t care who gets the answer. The only thing I care about is that somebody gets the answer, and I believe it will be someone who says the rosary and is a member of the church that our Blessed Lord has built, is building, and always will be building until He comes again. Thank you and God bless you.
