Unelected Canadian Judge Claims To Be In Tune With The Feelings Of The People

This is sickening.

A women strangles her newborn infant and throws the body of her baby over the fence into the neighbour's yard.  Her conviction for murder is overturned and she is instead convicted of the lesser crime of infanticide and is given a suspended sentence of a mere three years.

Here's the words of the judge's decision: "while many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support."  She goes on to say:  "Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant's death, especially at the hands of the infant's mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother."

she, who never has and need never stand for election, claims to know the feelings of the people well enough to use those feelings as a justification for her decision.  She rules not on facts, but on feelings.  Here, judge, is a fact about my feelings:  I do not grieve for the mother, beyond grieving that she will not spend a single day behind bars. You have just set a precedent that allows teenagers in trouble to kill innocent infants without fear of any repercussions.  You have de facto de-criminalized infanticide.

You beat me to this one--it was on my list for today!

the thing is, its shows a logical progression, especialy in the light of a sign i saw on a televised pr-murder demonstration. the sign said "A Baby is just a Fetus that's been Born".

It seems we are developng apace into a repeat of the urbanized barbarism that was old Rome, as Christianity withers under tha attack of Satan, and we come under the power of Secularity and Statism.

By the end of our lives, human life will worth nothing, and The State, Convenience, Sex and Pleasure will dominate the minds of men.

Infanticide is up throughout the former realm of Christendom, the judge just recognized that.
