The "Pillow Angel"?

Have you heard about the case of the 9 year old girl who has been butchered surgically in order to have her growth stunted?   This is about a sick a story as you'll hear.   It basically involves a family who tragically is caring for a 9 year old girl who is severely mentally and physically disabled.  She can't sit up or care for herself and stays on a pillow that her family evidently carries around.  According to news reports, the parents, who understandably have a tough time caring for her, don't want her to grow.  If she's bigger, it will be harder for them to take care of her.     So they've subjected her to a hysterectomy, a breast tissue removal, and have had her injected with hormones in order to stunt her growth.

Listen, my heart goes out to anyone who has a loved one in such a physical or mental condition.  I can't even begin to imagine how tough it must be to face that challenge on a daily basis.   But surgeries to stunt her growth in order to keep her small, so she can be carted around by her family like a pet rock?

This is yet another attack on the culture of life in America.  Abortion, Terri Schiavo, and now this.   Absolutely dreadful.
