A society more horrified by inconvenience than infanticide

That is what brings us to the situation where a mother refuses a Caesarian section to save her unborn twin, who died as a result. She is rightly being charged with murder. Depraved indifference indeed.

But listen to what she said. “I would rather lose one of the babies than be cut like that.”

She’s angry at the media attention. “I feel like I’m getting a lot of attention that [should be] my private business.”

Naturally, naturally, the depraved, indifferent abortion activists are outraged ? at the murder charge. The mother made her choice; it should be the end of the story. “‘I see this as part of an overall focus of a certain movement on fetal rights and an effort to elevate fetal rights above the rights of a woman,’ said Kim Gandy, president of the National Organization for Women and a former prosecutor.”

This reaction, of course, puts the lie to the abortionists’ argument about the viability of the unborn child. Here the doctors were clearly telling the woman the baby, ready to be delivered, was “viable” ? it could live if it had a mother who cared.

“I would rather lose one of the babies than be cut like that.” King Solomon would have a difficult time judging in today’s climate.
