Our Archdiocese could do this

Did you read in LifeSiteNews.com last Monday, the 26th, about pro-life action in Communist-held Vietnam?

It turns out that since 1992, Catholic pro-lifers (who must remain anonymous, to evade persecution) have run a large cemetry for aborted babies in Hue. Pro-lifers are opening similar cemeteries in Pleiku and Saigon ("Ho Chi Minh City") -- and, says LifeSiteNews, even some Communist officials have called them "a sacred work of love."

LifeSiteNews provides this link: http://www.asianews.it/view.php?l=en&art=6532

Running such a "sacred work of love" right here in L.A. would be a way for the Archdiocese to show public opposition to abortions, to build up the Culture of Life and to save babies and souls by fostering conversion of heart in many people. (Yes, I know about the memorial statues sponsored by the K of C; this project would be bigger.)

Imagine if the Archdiocese asked abortionists for the bodies of aborted babies, just as Joseph of Arimathea asked for the Body of Jesus. Yes, various laws would present obstacles -- but the Archdiocese's lawyers could take time out from their clergy abuse work to fight them.

Yes, I know about the 16,000 aborted babies who were found in a container and who eventually received decent Christian burial in Southern California back in the early 1980's despite pro-aborts' opposition. All aborted babies deserve baptism and Christian burial.

If Catholics can perform "a sacred work of love" in Vietnam, we can do it, or something similar, here. (No, I do not expect this to happen -- but it ought to.)

I'm going to write a letter to my bishop suggesting this.
