Which Babies Should Get the Death Sentence?

A little clarity is in order. The issue of aborting a baby if conceived by rape is an issue of blood. Two newborns occupy a hospital nursery. One was conceived in an act of love, the other by a horrible act of violence. Those who believe blood is important perceive a difference between the infants. Those of us that don't believe in blood perceive no such difference.

Well, if you're saying that the violence that produces the one baby justifies destroying her before brith, you've lost any respect I've might have had for you. When a child is conceived by rape, the culprit who deserves punishment is the RAPIST, not the child--yet our laws say the child may be put to death by some pretty cruel and unusual methods (saline solution, suction, etc.) without due process of law.

When I served abroad as a consular officer, I saw so many American couples who were adopting because they couldn't conceive, and the wait for an American baby (of ANY color, by the way) is just too long.

Americans witnessed a remarkable drama this week when some of our most exalted politicians frantically scrambled to reassure voters that they, too, believed that the United States ought to permit the deliberate killing of at least some innocent human beings.

They apparently did so to persuade the public they are caring, compassionate and -- above all -- reasonable people.

The drama started when Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee in the U.S. Senate race in Missouri, expressed his view that no innocent human being ought to be deliberately killed.

However, that was not the only thing Akin expressed....
