The Unjust Judge and the Unborn Child
[Taken from "the rich man and Lazarus" - Lk. 16:19-31]

    There was a certain judge who always dressed in fine suits and who fared well every day and who judged the courts unjustly, and a certain Unborn Child was brought before him, unwanted and despised, and seeking only the most basic right to life from the judge's court, but the media scorned her as a non-human mass of tissue.
    And it came to pass that the child was aborted and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The judge also died and was buried. And in hell, he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and seeing Abraham far off and the Unborn Child by his side playing.
    And the judge cried to Abraham, "Have mercy on me and send the Little One to me that she may dip her tiny, precious finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony in this flame."
    But Abraham said, "Your honor, remember that you were given authority in your lifetime to judge righteously, but you profited from bribes from abortionists and politicians while this Little One was condemned. Now you are condemned while this little one you judged unjustly is being comforted."
    "And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that they which would pass from here to you cannot; neither can they pass to us that would come from there."
    Then said the unjust judge, "I pray then, father, that you would send her to my family, for I have a wife with three daughters and five grandchildren who are all proabortion, that she may testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment."
    Abraham said to him, "They have the Bible. Let them hear it."
    And the judge said, No, father Abraham, but if she went to them from the dead they will repent."
    And Abraham said to him, "If they hear not the message of the Bible, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead."
