Monstrous Procreation Poem by Dorothy Kardas, Psy.D. Th.D.

Monstrous Procreation

Rating: 5.0

(Dedicated to in vitro fertilization victims...)

I - the tiny embryo
defiantly -
to laws divine - conceived
by 'procreators deceived'
through methods contemptible,
unfit for human...
sinful, disgraceful...
unbefitting to man!
designed scam!

I - the tiny embryo
insolently conceived
by 'procreators'
unduly relieved
treated as a product
another commodity
met with farcical fate...
disposable merchandise
elected to 'live'
or put to ghastly demise!

I - the tiny human
never lived to see
my siblings grow,
progress, and mature
for they were unsafe
in terrifying danger -
annihilated, eliminated!
as me - a victim embryo
a sufferer, human casualty
usable, throwaway thing!
with immortal soul within...

do they bathe their bed
with tears over me?
no! they abandoned
the memory of me...
for they've rebelliously
forsaken Thee...

not parents!
not even procreators!
but selfish terminators!

can the selected sibling
find true comfort in your arm?
when hearts are lifeless, cruel
DID to tiny offspring
sickening, irreversible harm?

liable to creatural caprice
mind-boggling whim-wham:
am I just a waste product? !
or if sought after
I become a wanted man? ! ...

while Unfailing Creator
Munificent Liberator
steadily inquires
of regal... fit desires:
'Is not My Love Supreme
enough to crown your dream? '

There is a bleak coldness about the whole thing.

Dr. Kardas, A true and frightening depiction of the mind-set of scientists who are clearly out of control (mostly for monetary profits!) rebelling against Our Creator and His natural laws... intruding in the realm of procreation belonging only to Him! Great poem showing the apparent irrationality by putting science at the center of things... showing its destructive and diabolical practices.10!

We all concur Dr. Kardas, that fortuitously the voiceless have ' their freedom of speech' through such a wise and talented liason as yourself. With gratitude, in the name of the unborn....continue to always be our spokeswoman, full of the Light and all gifts given by the Holy Spirit.

Dr. Kardas, This is superb moralistic interpretation of the evil of in vitro fertilization practices. This evil practice means that human beings enter the world no longer as gifts of God but as mere products of human evil engineering, as products that can be eliminated or accepted. NO LOGIC in such thinking! Thank you for shaking and enlightening our moral consciousness.10!

Shocking, but very truthful subject matter, masterfully expressed from the perspective of the unborn...doomed child. Last two stanzas really a knockout punch! ...what pitiful human irrationality: if wanted the embryo is human and is cause for great rejoicing, yet if unwanted...becomes just a despised piece of waste product! How true, is NOT GOD'S Perfect Love enough for us? 10+ Keep up the GOOD FIGHT!

Absolutely the best written poetic argument we've ever read! Please check our family's comment on 'Birth Announcement? '...we have the greatest respect for your keen insights and delivery of this message in the voice of the children who suffer this satanic abusive invention...the cry of each murdered child can be heard through your words loud and clear. Again, God bless..The Surrettes
