A terrible lonely death
In a country that accepts de-facto relationships with legal rights; has multiple options of contraception; supports single parents; enables gay couples to adopt and allows early abortion, would a Bill be passed that states its OK to kill a healthy child to the point of birth. Its barbaric.
The majority of people didn’t ask for it or were included in the discussion. It doesn’t matter if your far left or far right, Christian or atheist. This is not a political issue. The measure of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable and what could be more vulnerable than a fully pregnant confused woman and a little baby. Whether your Pro-life or Pro – womens rights, its the same conclusion.
Now we have babies that were damaged by the procedure, dying on their own. Why should a baby, that was assaulted in the womb, born wounded, be left to die and denied any medical treatment.
Would we accept this for animals?
