I think this is a very important paragraph. I don’t have a lot to add to it, except to point out that what is writ large in the StemExpress bulk human parts industry, part of the Planned Parenthood murder-for-hire profit chain, is writ small in every door in the country with “Human Resources” printed on it. You have to oppose loudly the bright-line cases; and you should work consistently to reform the fine-line cases, as well.
Human beings are not lumps of labor. They are not capital, consumer goods, taxpayers, commodities — or meat. The philosophy of Planned Parenthood (and Eros is a jealous god) is the philosophy of men-as-meat, and that philosophy is not long compatible with liberty and human dignity. When Erich Fromm wrote his famous book on the dream of religion without deity, he titled it “You Shall Be as Gods.” The truth is that without an understanding of the uniqueness of human beings and the consequent value of every human life, you will not be as gods — you will be as meat.

So pray the St. Michael against the demonism evident in the cool-headed murder-for-hire of Planned Parenthood. And try ignoring the “Self-checkout” and mentioning your conviction that a big-box store can find space in its budget to hire some local workers, for a small start on the rest of the problem.
It matters more than you know that you habitually see these patterns, and resist them.
