Burial for Embryonic Human Beings
“And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a clean linen shroud, and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn in the rock; and he rolled a great stone to the door of the tomb, and departed.” Matthew 27:59-60.
Sacred Heart Guardian and Shelter’s mission is to provide Christian burial for the embryonic people who die in IVF labs and who would otherwise be thrown away as waste. We pursue this mission because a human embryo is fully a human being, fully a human person, with both a physical body and an eternal, spiritual soul. No matter our age, size, “potential,” or medically-assessed “viability,” being thrown out as waste is contrary to the respect owed to each and every human being.
By caring for the bodies and souls of our deceased brothers and sisters, we hope to serve the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The Rite of Committal with Final Commendation is offered for the souls of the departed embryonic children at each burial.
