Procession of Healing

On Saturday, the day before Mother's Day, TN, pro-lifers organized a funeral "Procession of Healing" to commemorate 3,100 babies killed by abortion in Knox Co. last year.

Between 300-350 cars participated in the funeral procession that wove through Knoxville. Must have been quite something. Watch a VolunteerTV.com news video by clicking on the graphic below:

According to knoxnews.com:

Organizers formulated the idea after hearing of a funeral and burial of 25 aborted babies found in dumpsters behind a clinic in Detroit.

... Hodari's babies.

Balance, we must have balance. So VolunteerTV.com dredged up a pro-abort to condemn the mourning:

"I think that it is a little dramatic, and implies that it was a kind of intended murder, which I don't believe choice is," said Ina Hughs, a pro-choice advocate who also said she understands why healing is needed, but called the procession a mockery. "I think it denigrated the spiritual and ritual side of a funeral."

Notice Hughs avoided the word abortion, which rendered her statement incoherent. And why is healing needed? Exactly WHY?


Comments:

"I think that it is a little dramatic, and implies that it was a kind of intended murder, which I don't believe choice is," said Ina Hughs, a pro-choice advocate...

Yup, that's right, let's keep up the pretense at ANY cost.
If there's no murder, why does Ms. Hughs think "healing is needed.."? Healing from what then? Like maybe the fact that an unborn baby's life has been snuffed out?

Of course, if you don't believe abortion kills a BABY, then maybe having a funeral would seem like a mockery.
However, the funeral shows the WE KNOW in fact, a life has been taken each and every one of those 3,100 times.
And by her statements Ina Hughs is a confused lady.

Kudos to TN prolifers!

Ask the person that used those words Jill. But of course you don't care what the person meant. You would rather ignore the fact that millions of people are burried every day without anyone in attendence but hundreds of zealots will show up for pretend funerals. Way to be shallow Jill.

Sally, what's your point?
We are talking about ABORTION here. Babies are killed - 1.5 million to be somewhat exact.
They dont' get any funerals, do they?

KNOXVILLE (WVLT) – On Saturday, hundreds joined the Procession of Healing, a symbolic funeral procession to mourn abortions in Knox County.

It was much appreciated by Misty, a Knoxville mother who did not want to reveal her last name. When she was 17, she had an abortion.

"No matter what you do, you can't get past the pain,” she said. “My mother told me that I had to have abortion, or I needed to leave the house."

According to Misty, the choice to stay at home took away a funeral for what she calls her “12-week-old child.”

Organizers say the event was for people like Misty, who never got the chance to grieve.

She watched on as about 350 vehicles followed a single hearse through downtown Knoxville...

...As for Misty, she said the event offered her some closure, even know she believes her life will never be the same.

"You feel regret,” she said. “You always wonder, what could have been?."...

...None of Knoxville’s abortion clinics would comment on the event.

If it's not an "intended murder" what is it exactly? An ACCIDENTAL one?

"Oops sorry baby, I accidentally sucked your body parts down the drain."

wtf?

Maybe all the attendees were aborted...

Sally: 1:54: You would rather ignore the fact that millions of people are burried every day without anyone in attendence but hundreds of zealots will show up for pretend funerals. Way to be shallow Jill.

Where do you get your numbers that millions of people are being buried every day with no one in attendance? What does that have to do with the price of tea in China?

LOL

The young girl in this story, and those in her family need our prayers. What a terrible thing to be forced to do because of a parent's threat. Why don't parents think about the long term consequences of abortion before they advise their children to have them? Are parents numbed by their own experiences? How can they not help but wonder about the grandchild they never had? Lord have mercy.

I attended the Procession of Healing, and I was really mystified at the irrational criticisms it received. We blamed no one for anything, we made no accusations about anything. Apparently that woman who was interviewed by channel 6 felt some sort of guilt and was projecting it on us. We got in our cars, we put the little funeral flags in our windows, and we drove a couple miles behind a hearse. And that was it. And the proaborts went ballistic that we would have the nerve to do that!

What a sad, sad commentary that even the mildest, meekest, most benign show of respect for the millions of unborn babies killed by abortion draws the wrath of those who support that killing.

Doyle,
So awesome! I am proud of you!
Yeah, you must have "struck a nerve", huh?

And PA's will turn it around and make themselves to be the victims, saying their right to bodily autanatomy trumps a baby's right to life.

Posted by: Janet at May 13, 2008 4:45 PM


That's not a misspelling on my last post. I'm trying to make up a new word for bodily autonomy, because it seems too abstract a phrase for describing the desire to rid oneself of a foreign being (abort a baby).

Autanatomy sounds like it refers to car parts. Hmm... "the right to...( ??? )"

OK Sally:

So children may be orphaned or abused or mistreated let's just kill 'em as Margaret Sanger and TR rant.

So, because many people die without relatives or anyone in attendance, let's just support the same atrocity being perpetrated on innocent children in the womb.

Yep, you make perfect sense.

Doyle:

Get used to it. I get it all the time for defending the pre-born.

Pro-aborts are simply wolves in sheeps clothing and the fangs really come out when you hit them in the face with the truth and anything else that challenges their selfish lifestyles.

Janet, I am also moved to sorrow when I see mothers "escorting" their daughters into PP for abortions. Many times you can see the dejected look on thne poor girl who walks out in a shambles. And their mother is smiling. It makes me sick.

Janet, I will pray for Misty too

Posted by: truthseeker at May 14, 2008 2:08 AM


Me too.

Posted by: Carla at May 14, 2008 7:48 AM


Yes Truthseeker:

That's a difficult one to understand.

In some sort of twiated way, the mother of the daughter sees the way out of the dilemma being the murder of the daughter's child.

With training like that, it's no wonder the daughter was having premarital sex anyway.

So instead of spending time with their mothers on Mother's Day, people wasted their time following a fake funeral procession?

Posted by: JKeller at May 15, 2008 6:04 AM


JKeller: Had you studied reading in school, you might have learned that the procession was on SATURDAY, NOT SUNDAY......

So much for "social advancement" in grammar schools.
