An article posted last week on the ABC News website begins with this sentence:
Ten million girls have been killed by their parents in India in the past 20 years, either before they were born or immediately after, a government minister said on Thursday, describing it as a “national crisis”.
It’s been well known for several years now that killing little girls simply because they’re little girls is an all too common practice, especially in India and China. But whatever you thought you knew about this particularly awful form of murder, the grisly details are, in reality, probably much worse. Read the rest of the article to get an idea of how bad it really is. Look back at the article’s opening sentence. Two things are worth noting:
- We’re not just talking about sex-selective abortion, but also sex-selective infanticide.
- The opening sentence of an article posted on the website of one of the “Big Three” news networks clearly implies that abortion takes the life of a living human being — not a “potential life” (whatever that term means).
Whether or not this was a fluke that somehow slipped past the editor’s desk, it’s encouraging to see that the mainstream media can occasionally be honest when it reports on abortion. *** HT: Mark Shea, who summarizes:
In Abortion World, girls die at a spectacular rate. Moral: All sin is its own punishment in the long run. A perverted feminism which seeks power for women more than love for neighbor or God dooms itself to making women a still more powerless minority. Only a Christian feminism that puts the love of God and neighbor first (and therefore seeks to give woman her proper dignity as a corrollary of these loves) can survive.
