“Mum’s Twin heartbreak” Major headline in our daily newspaper the Herald Sun November 24, 2011.
This the story of 32 week old in utero twins aborted “accidently” at the Royal Women’s Hospital the largest women’s Hospital in Victoria. “Mums Twin Heartbreak”
As the story unfolded through the papers and media outlets it transpired that one of the infants was diagnosed with congenital heart defect and would need many operations if he survived at all and the “advice” was to abort him. In the process of the abortion of the child with the defect the healthy one was mistakenly aborted and then the one with the heart defect was also terminated via a caesarean section.
In all of this I have to ask WHY? Not that the accident happened, but why it needed to happen at all?
Why was the encouragement to abort the child with heart defect? Why not let him live and have the operations which would be needed? and if he died naturally, at least hold him, love him, nurture him for the time available, and name him and give him a burial worthy of the new human being? Why at 32 weeks abort him because he had a heart defect? How is it possible for parents (possibly on medical advice) determine that it’s better for their baby to die because he is ill? What’s happened to the idea that we love our own unto death? Whats happened to the idea that a mother and father protect their child against all attacks and not agree to anything else?
And the mistake which took the life of the “healthy” infant? what can be said about that?
This dear friends is what happens with our new abortion laws. Abortion legal to 40 weeks.
It will never happen many said. It will never happen that older babies will be terminated.
Three older in utero babies dead through abortion in 5 weeks reported in our daily papers. And It will never happen..?
And I suspect that the reason this made the headlines is because the “healthy” baby was terminated and it’s going to be a massive compensation/investigation headliner.
I have been speaking about legalisation of “infanticide” since our new infamous abortion laws of 1998 and since then we have seen over 50 late term abortions (that we know of) of infants who were viable but aborted and some were born alive but were not helped and eventually succumbed to lonely unattended death.
And we call ourselves a civilised society?
This last reported abortion for foetal abnormality (the second one. I have attended to another mother, in the last four weeks who aborted at 14 weeks old for foetal abnormality or so she was told) happened because of the eugenic mentality which has become deeply rooted in our society and which Hitler and Sanger and others would have been proud of.
We punish “homicide” we punish all types of intentional and even unintentional killing as illegal. Yet “infanticide” is legal and a “right” because the pro abortion lobby and feminist cabal declared that this is a right of women. And sadly they got what they wanted and we stand by and watch and read what we read in the news yesterday “Mum’s Twin Heartbreak.” Will this be last late term abortion? NO there will be many more as more and more our society becomes desensitised to death of infants and to our own sense of helplessness in the face of such horror and such devaluing of human life.
Lord Please help us we cant do it anymore. You need your help.
