Today’s post is short but not sweet. Vox comments on an abomination of the worst order: the murder of infants. No, this is not an anti-abortion post, although most of my readers understand that I do not approve of that practice.

No, this is “ethical experts” declaring that smothering a newborn infant is not only justifiable, but a potential good to society. Where abortion covers thorny moral territory, where there are cases it might even be defended as a lesser evil (I do not defend it as such, but I can understand the argument), the deliberate murder of infants has no possible justification. The debatable moral Rubicon has been crossed well before that point.┬áThis is the worst sort of evil conceivable. It is a violation of what makes us human and even the mere thought of it is enough to produce physical revulsion.

This is my son, Jacob. He is less than 6 months old. If someone harmed him, using justification of this nature… well, let us say that I am well armed.


What sort of person can look at a child and think “killing him would be fine, ethically.” The changing face of evil has emerged from the shadows. It walks openly among us.
