Why does the law say that killing an unborn child is OK, but not a born child?

This article from Nancy Flory in The Stream really caused me to stop and think about the plight of unborn children in our age of selfishness.

Nancy starts her piece like this:

As someone who’s faced an unexpected pregnancy — and now has a rambunctious two-year-old — I came across two stories in the last week that stopped me cold. As I explained in an earlier article, I faced uncertainty, financial hardships and downright fear when I discovered I was pregnant. I know what it’s like not to know what the future holds, not to know how I’m going to buy food for my children, to know I’m going to lose my car and go for months without gainful employment, all while unexpectedly pregnant. So I can speak with candor about the two mothers who made headlines this week regarding what they chose to do when faced with an unexpected pregnancy.

I’m just going to quote the second one, you can click through for the first.

She writes:

Emile Weaver — Having Too Much Fun to Stop for Parenthood

An Ohio judge this week sentenced sorority girl Emile Weaver to life in prison without parole for throwing away her newborn baby girl after giving birth in her sorority house’s restroom. The 20-year-old texted her boyfriend following the child’s death, saying, “No more baby,” and “taken care of.”

Prosecutors made the case that Weaver knew all along she wasn’t going to keep the baby and engaged in risky behaviors such as drinking, smoking marijuana and playing in a volleyball tournament while pregnant, reported The Blaze.

Although she apologized during her trial for killing her child and testified that she thought the baby was dead before she put her in the trash, she made legal moves to plead not guilty by reason of insanity and, after the trial, vowed that she would appeal.

The judge did not believe that she was remorseful and handed down the stiff sentence.

Nancy goes on to make the point about abortion. Why is it OK for a woman to kill her unborn child in its 6th, 7th, 8th month of gestation but it suddenly becomes wrong after the child is born? Why is abortion morally right 5 minutes before birth, but morally wrong 5 minutes after birth? What is it that the baby acquires after passing through the birth canal a few inches that gives them the right to life?

Or, isn’t it the case the the location of the child is meaningless, and the child had all the value in the world the moment it was conceived, and a new DNA signature of a human being was created that is distinct from the mother and the father. A new person was made. That new person is not the father, and is not the mother. It’s a new person. And it’s not right to kill innocent people just because the mother wants to have fun and thrills, and escape the responsibility for her actions. That’s really what abortion is – two unmarried people get drunk, have sex for fun and thrills, and then they kill the child because they don’t want their pursuit of fun and thrills to be impacted with expectations, responsibilities or obligations.

This is why I am so suspicious of the women I knew when I was younger who pushed me to have fun, and who hated expectations, responsibilities and obligations. There is a lot of drinking and pleasure-seeking that goes on with young women, and I didn’t want anything to do with it. Fun makes me suspicious. For young people, it seems to go along with playing the victim, avoiding responsibility, and running away from moral obligations. So many young, unmarried women seem to have this desperate desire for fun, thrills and travel. And they are revolted by expectations, responsibilities and moral obligations. Not me – I am deeply suspicious of fun and thrills. It strikes me as childish, and when I read stories about women who have had abortions, I understand what is behind my suspicion.

I’m not killing any unborn children, not for any fun in the world. Not for the best fun the world has to offer. Fun isn’t that important to me, not if I have to break moral laws and even be complicit in murder. No way.

  1. Speaking of callous psychopathic women…

    This story might as well be appended to the prior one on the serial adulteress.

    1. Somehow, a significant portion of the country, including most of the leaders in the church, think that it is virtuous to not talk to women about moral obligations and personal responsibility.

      1. “Moral obligations” and “personal responsibility” apply ONLY to men since men are NEVER Politically Correct…unless they’re Democrats, Muslim, SJWs, or gay, of course.
        And women wonder ‘why there are no Good Men’ (only after they’re in their thirties, of course).

        MGTOW…because it’s better to be single than to wish that you were.

  2. As far as “fun” goes, abstinence, chastity, self-control, and discipline result in much more long term pleasure. That’s why God says these are all so good. Society and pop culture, as always, have it completely backwards and upside down.

  3. “Why is abortion morally wrong 5 minutes before birth, but morally wrong 5 minutes after birth?”
    Did you mean
    “Why is abortion morally right 5 minutes before birth, but morally wrong 5 minutes after birth?”?

  4. Well, morality and Law parted ways some time ago. The legal lie of abortion is rooted in the quasi-emotive state of desire, or in its more stripped-down economic form: want.

    The dissonance of this lie is evidenced by the law recognizing unborn life when there is desire or want of said life, which can also be presumed post facto, but also recognizing the unborn as non-life when it is deemed to be unwanted. Most laws require no reasoning to support this want or not.

    If one harms a pregnant woman resulting in early termination, the result is prosecuted as if that unborn life was already alive. The law also occasionally (and depending on the state) protects the unborn life from reckless offenses (e.g. drugs, alcohol) by the mother, but this also presumes desire since these cases conveniently present in late-term pregnancies so it is rare that the annoying issue of defining life rears its head.

    Regardless, the cynic in me sees this as more of an extension of the State’s encroachment into owning the children than that of actual recognition of, and value of, unborn life.

    Meanwhile, this same law will allow that same woman to terminate that unborn life if she does not desire it. So the unborn are both life and non-life, depending solely on the desire or want of the woman, up to some arbitrary point where the law backs away from legal termination due to the awkwardness of the termination protocols requiring actual birth – which goes to the whole 5 min. before, 5 min. after issue.

    Morality finds no fertile ground when the premise of life is a contradiction drifting in the ether of a woman’s emotive state.

    The woman in the OP is just one more example of the kind of cold, pathological detachment that is a lot more common in women than the messengers want us to believe. Sure, she is batsh*t crazy. But there is a continuum upon which the median is moving toward cray-cray. Just wait until these kids raised on YouTube and Tinder hit 30. Yikes.

    Morality asks of us, emotions demand from others. We are in the age of emotion.

    1. I was literally just listening to a conversation in my workplace where a twice-divorced vegan woman explained why she wouldn’t kill a cockroach or a centipede, but was pro-abortion through all nine months of pregnancy. She was explaining all her environmentalist and animal rights views as proudly as if she were delivering the Sermon on the Mount.

      1. “…a twice-divorced vegan woman explained why she wouldn’t kill a cockroach or a centipede”

        A statement like that makes me wonder what the living quarters of this woman look like; since she’s undoubtedly a feminist, she likely sees any kind of housework as ‘demeaning’ and ‘beneath’ her. It also makes me understand how she’s twice-divorced.
        I wonder how she feels about mice, rats, bed bugs, ticks, fleas, lice, mosquitoes, and flies…
