Perhaps the conversation could go like this . . .
Susan: So, what are you doing tonight?
Arthur:: We might go to a movie. What about you?
Susan: There’s a sale at the mall. I think I’ll look for a new white blouse.
Arthur:: Have you tried that new restaurant on Parker Street?
Susan: Not yet, but I heard it is fantastic! Have you been there yet?
Arthur:: We might go there before the movie.
Susan: Brrrr. Someone needs to adjust the air conditioner. I think it’s cold in here.
Arthur:: Yeah, it is a little cold. So, let’s take care of this little girl.
Susan: Look – she is adorable.
Arthur:: We are not here for “adorable.”
Susan: OK – but you have to admit she is cute. Look at that sweet face.
Arthur:: We are not here to observe “sweet face.”
I want you to take your scissors and begin to cut open her face to expose her brain. Be careful. This is the most important thing to harvest from this one.
Susan: This is hard. She is so cute.
A long, silent pause.
Arthur:: What’s wrong with you. You have this terrible look on your face!
Susan: It just struck me. Oh, this is horrifying.
Arthur:: What is horrifying?
Susan: How many people are in this room?
Arthur:: There are just the two of us, why?
Susan: No. I just had this horrible realization. There are three people in this room – this little aborted baby, you, and me. What have we done? What are we doing?
Arthur:: Remember, Susan – you have to properly define what a human is. Are you seriously calling this little girl a human?
Susan: Both of us have identified her as a little girl. Look at her! We just murdered a little girl.
Now we are harvesting her body in order to sell her piece by piece. Look at her. Look at her complete, perfect little body. And the organs we are harvesting are distinct – they are not just “tissues.” Stop for a second and think about this: which of the three of us is really human?
Arthur:: I don’t see your point.
Susan: Maybe the only human in this room is this little girl.
We have lost our humanity and have become monsters killing little girls and little boys and cutting apart their bodies to sell them, piece by piece. We have become calculated, cold-blooded creatures working in Frankenstein’s laboratory. Adolph Hitler would hire us.
Arthur:: Us? Monsters? I’m offended. Quit being so melodramatic. Just do your job. If you ‘ start thinking that way you won’t be able to work in this industry anymore.

The previous conversation is fictional, yet based on fact. In America alone about 58 million babies have been aborted since the Roe v. Wade decision. How many of these have been harvested and their body parts sold?
Unborn babies are not crops to be harvested.
