I mean, why not just think of it as a “4th Trimester” abortion?
Desperate mothers are being urged to drop their unwanted babies through hatches at hospitals in an effort to halt a spate of infanticides that has shocked Germany.
At least 23 babies have been killed so far this year, many of them beaten to death or strangled by their mothers before being dumped on wasteland and in dustbins.
Police investigating the murders are at a loss to explain the sudden surge in such cases, which have involved mothers of all ages all over the country.
My headline is facetious, of course. The blame for the travesty reported above rests squarely on the shoulders of the “culture of death” that permeates the extreme left. It’s penchant for destroying embryos at every stage of development has reached the mainstream, and Germany is probably only the first clear manifestation of their success. Really, if sucking millions of babies into a sink is OK, why is beating them to death and then abandoning them as garbage any different?
Before you accuse me of being off the reservation in this criticism, let me remind you that Peter Singer, famous so-called “ethicist” was given a Princeton professorship AFTER he opined that
“Human babies are not born self-aware or capable of grasping their lives over time. They are not persons. Hence their lives would seem to be no more worthy of protection that the life of a fetus.”
Now, you may agree with such a statement. That makes you a moral idiot, IMO, particularly if you consider yourself part of Western Civilization. However, if you can’t make a connection with a person of Singer’s beliefs raised to a position of stature and young German women beating and trashing their babies, then you are not only a moral idiot, but an intellectual idiot as well.
What is happening in Germany isn’t an accident, and it is probably happening here in the US as well. We just aren’t as good at practicing Peter Singer’s religion yet. I hope we never will be.
