The Latest Euphemism for Infanticide

Leave it to the New York Times to print a story like this. Selective reduction is the process by which a woman who is pregnant for more than one child reduces the number of her offspring by killing one or more of her children before they are born. Apparently some women are even proud of this. Memo to this psyco woman's one surviving child: watch your back, you're mom has already killed two of your siblings in a preemptive double homicide. I put this story in my blog to illustrate two points. First, there is no limit to the lies people will tell themselves to avoid guilt and/or discomfort. Second, there is no shortage of sympathetic media outlets to spread these lies. Mother Theresa said it best, “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” Please vote pro-life and encourage everyone you know to do the same.
