“Conversion of Russia” Update

Aborted Babies Being Used in Beauty Salons

by Christopher A. Ferrara

Catholic attorney James Bendell has coined the term “Fatima curse” to describe what has been happening in Russia since the so-called “consecration” of 1984, which specifically avoided any mention of Russia. Heaven’s answer to this deliberate evasion of what Our Lady of Fatima requested has been a startling decomposition of Russian society, the creation of a neo-Stalinist dictatorship under Vladimir Putin, and the growing persecution of the Catholic Church by the Kremlin and by its puppet, the Russian Orthodox Church.

And it just keeps getting worse, as Russia grows more depraved by the day. Consider a report in the London Observer online edition (April 17, 2005) that “aborted foetuses from girls and young women are being exported from Ukraine for use in illegal beauty treatments costing thousands of pounds.” Cryogenically frozen aborted babies are “sold to clinics offering ‘youth injections’, claiming to rejuvenate skin and cure a raft of diseases …. Most of the foetuses are sold in Russia for up to £5,000 each.”

The Observer further reports that “It is thought that women in the former Soviet republic are being paid £100 a time to persuade them to have abortions and allow their foetuses to be used in treatments. Some are paid extra to have abortions late in their pregnancy. Border guards stopped a train entering Russia from Ukraine last week and arrested a ‘mule’ carrying 25 frozen foetuses hidden in two vacuum flasks.”

According to the report “Beauty salons in Moscow that buy the aborted material to provide ‘foetal therapy’ are flourishing, despite a Russian ban on all commercial treatments using human cells other than bone marrow. The salons offer injections of stem cells, the undivided cells present in embryos that can adapt into any kind of tissue, although they are still at the trial stage worldwide.”

Although “beauty courses of injections using blends of foetal cells are banned in Ukraine and Russia … they are widely available in salons that charge up to £10,000. Wealthy clients are told the treatment can stop the ageing process, or eliminate such debilitating conditions as Parkinson’s disease or Alzheimer’s. One fashionable Moscow clinic approached by the Observer promised to ‘take 10 years off your face’.”

In other words, Russian women are now literally engaging in the cannibalism of unborn children for the sake of a youthful appearance. And their cannibalistic needs are being supplied by the women of once-Catholic Ukraine, who are literally killing and selling their own children as consumer products.

The Observer concludes by noting that “Ukrainians, accustomed to tales of illegal privatisations and government corruption, are not surprised. ‘They used to say we were selling Ukraine,’ said one reporter. ‘Now we are selling Ukrainians; moreover, in parts’.”

And this, they dare to tell us, is the “conversion of Russia” promised by Our Lady of Fatima. This, they tell us, is the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. Let those in the Catholic Church who continue to advance these monstrous lies consider their own complicity in the slaughter of innocents, whose poor bodies are being cannibalized by Russian women. For this would not be happening today if the Message of Fatima had been heeded.
