...its final step being that murdering a helpless person gets no prison time whatever.
You might think I'm exaggerating. I wish I were. A Canadian court concluded that, because we are obliged to "grieve for the mother" -- who remains quite alive for party time -- she gets no jail, not a day, for offing her kid. Those onerous demands of motherhood, dontcha know.
Here's the story. This was not an abortion, nor is this blog about abortion. It also was not, for aught the story reveals, an instance of post-partum depression, even assuming that being depressed is an excuse for killing a person who can't fight back. It was that she didn't want her son, so she killed him. The sentence, if you want to call it that, was three years' probation.
This is the true, hideous face of what our adversaries call "compassion."
Hat tip to federalist.
