Over the weekend, police in the overwhelmingly crime-free city of Pleasant Grove, Utah made the shocking discovery of six dead newborns stored in boxes in a residential garage. The babies were suffocated right after they were born between 1996 and 2006. The suspect is a woman who was the mother to all six babies. She was arrested and charged with six murders, with bail set at $1 million for each murder.
It seems that the mother's $6 million mistake was not getting abortions. If she had killed the babies one day earlier, when they were still in the womb, she would be walking free today. Actually, the real mistake is a society where it is a crime to murder a baby the day it is born, but looks the other way if the baby is murdered the day before it is born.
This is the kind of story that makes liberals embarrassingly uncomfortable. How does someone rationally defend that murder is not murder when a baby is minutes away from being born?
The pro-abortion position is hard to defend, when it results in the termination of over 50 million lives in the past 40 years. Conservative actions to make it more difficult to kill the unborn are fought every time by pro-abortion liberals. When Bill Clinton was president, he said his position was that abortion should be ¨legal, safe and rare.¨ The language made it's way to the Democrat platform for many years, but this position must have offended their base, because it was removed from the platform in 2008 and 2012 when Obama ran for president.
Yes, it is a tragedy that six dead babies were discovered on Saturday. But the greater tragedy is that there are over 3,000 abortions every day in the United States that don't make the news.
