Pro-Life vs. Pro-Death

By chance the news today offers us a perfect contrast.

We have a family who did all they could to love a baby they knew would die shortly after his birth. They are pro-life Christians. [HT: Dawn Patrol]

And then we have a second story about the discovery of a healthy, two month old girl found floating in a lagoon wrapped inside a plastic bag. (Thank God she was found alive and healthy, though that clearly wasn’t the intent.)

No one knows who the mother is yet, but I think it’s pretty clear she’s someone who decided she couldn’t give up her child but at the same time couldn’t handle the responsibilty. She had what you might call a post-partum crisis pregnancy.

If only she had gotten an abortion. Just 3-4 months earlier, someone would have been happy to kill her baby, wrap it in a plastic bag and disposed of the body for her. Best of all it’s all legal. As it is, she’ll probably face charges.

I think there’s a lesson here. Leave this sort of thing to the professionals. They get the job done.
