Depravity of Mankind – Legally Murder Newborn

The Innocent

I read a story a few days ago, and one that I am sure most of have read or heard about.  I was extremely disturbed by the story and I was not going to blog it because it is so controversial but because it is so very disturbing.  I have changed my mind.  I changed my mind because of the recent activity or comments on this blog.  The story I am referring to is the Virginia mother who had her baby at home and then proceeded to murder her full term child that was born alive.  In fact, the child was not early but a full term baby.  The mother had received prenatal care and then proceeded to murder her little daughter right after she was born.  She won’t be charged with murder because under Virginia law, the child is not deemed or afforded personhood – EVEN though the child was full term and was born alive.  Why? Because the child was still attached to the mother via the umbilical cord and as long as the child was attached to the mother, he or she is not a person. 

I chose to bring up this topic based on the comments on my post titled In-Vitro Fertilization and Stem Cell Research in Christianity.  The moral consensus of this country is reflected in some of the comments so I am not attacking any person but simply stating that the moral views of this country and the moral views of most of humanity is that the unborn is nothing more than material to be used or discarded in the trash.  Now even those children born alive and on term are not a person until the umbilical cord is severed.  How insane.  A mother can deliver a full term baby and proceed to do whatever she wants to this child, smother (as in the case I am discussing) or shoot, torture, or anything she pleases as long as she does not sever the umbilical cord.  The moment she severs the umbilical cord, the unborn becomes a person in the eyes of the law.

Something similar happened in Virginia prompting the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office attempting to get the law changed.  The state senator and two delegates would not take up the matter with the General Assembly because those lawmakers felt the issue to be too close to the abortion issue.  So there Virginia stands with its law, giving mothers the right to murder children that are not only unborn but also to those children born on term.  How far are we sinking?

It was asked of me  if I am willing to deprive society of important scientific research?  If it is at the expense of another’s life?  That’s a no brainer.  No, I do not support taking the life of another and slicing and dicing them in the name scientific research.  The majority of the world obviously disagrees with me and vehemently opposes my views.  Actually, my views are immaterial and in the scheme of things, matter not.  But the world’s views of God’s children, whether not yet born or born but still attached to the mother is damning to those that oppose God’s views.  Man’s views has changed over time (read the history of how man has changed his views on the unborn in the above quoted article), but the views of God has not changed to accommodate mankind.

There is nothing I can do about what is going on in how society keeps slipping deeper and deeper in the moral muck and mire like quicksand where moral right is wrong and moral wrong is right.  We are not that far from being totally sucked into that moral muck.

I try not to think about that child who was born full term, recognizing the voice of her mother and helpless while her mother snuffed the life right out of her.  Right now, she will receive no punishment for this crime because the state of Virginia does not recognize that this little girl was a person.  Make no mistake, those that murder children because they the laws of our land gives them the legal right to do so, will one day face a God who is long-suffering and full of grace but also one that will exact judgment on those that do not repent.  This mother can be saved but if she does not repent, the charge of murder will be one of her crimes when she stands before God.  She snuffed out the life of one of His and according to all those concerned, she was the only one that showed no remorse.

  • ‘Vengeance is Mine, and retribution, In due time their foot will slip; For the day of their calamity is near, And the impending things are hastening upon them.’   (Deu 32:35 NASB)

The depravity of man knows no boundary.

    Hey Tishrei,

    I was saddened as well with this story. Similar things have happened in hospitals, one in Great Britain earlier in the year and another in Chicago a few years ago. In both cases the child was left to die, deemed unviable. The UK baby without the mother’s knowledge.

    It used to be all about location. Even as we advance in what we know you will still hear people refer to an embryo as a blob of tissue, betraying a grasp of science that is at least 40 years out of date.

    People don’t care much about something if they can’t see it, and they are resistant to sympathy for psychological defensive reasons if they perceive the event as something that may challenge their worldview. This is why something that you and I would think should cause outrage barely makes a ripple.

    Like last summer when a bothced abortion produced a live baby in Florida that was subsequently thrown out in the trast. I had to work to find that story and never saw it hit the major media or any follow up on the case.

    Aren’t we, in the collective sense, to be pitied?

    God bless you, my dear friend.

    In Christ,.

      Hey Kent,

      These are things that are difficult for me to think about. I know this is the wrong attitude, but I wish I had not read that story. It was so evil what she did to that newborn that I wish I had not seen it.

      Oh well, that’s the world in which we live :(

    Matthew 18:1-10 gives us a good idea of how the Lord Jesus feels about little children.

    Like you said, the State of Virginia might not be willing to do anything about this atrocity, but the mother will someday stand face-to-face with the One Who declared that it would be better to have a millstone hung from your neck and be tossed into the sea than to be guilty of harming a little child.

      Yes, that’s the exact scripture that I believe God will have for them when they stand before Him.

    Your post today brings so much agony….. Truth be said, it is not only this so-called mother that will be held responsible on Judgment Day….. Every single person in power to change the “law”, but refusing to do so, will also be held guilty of murder…..

    Isaiah 5:20-21 reads, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight!”

    These people arrogantly think of themselves as wise as they legally push for evil….. This world is bringing judgment down on themselves, and they don’t care — yet.

      Hi Margaret,

      You said “Your post today brings so much agony.” You don’t know how true that was for me — so much so that I wished I had not read the article. I don’t do too well with that kind of wickedness.

      And you’re right — not only will that mother have to face the judgment of murder over what she did but all those that support it.

      I don’t know what else to say. This is one that really did affect me.
