I warn you, this story is very disturbing.
In Virginia, a mother gave birth to her baby and then suffocated it. Virginia law enforcement is powerless to charge her. As Investigator Tracy Emerson put it:
“In the state of Virginia, as long as the umbilical cord is attached and [the] placenta is still in the mother, if the baby comes out alive, the mother can do whatever she wants to that baby to kill it,” Emerson reports. “She can shoot the baby, stab the baby or anything as long as it is still attached to her in some form by umbilical cord or something, and it’s no crime in the state of Virginia.”
This not the first time that this has happened in Virginia, but the abortion lobby has legislators too scared to act. As long as the baby is “attached” to the mother and it is not a person.
This case highlights the abhorrent absurdity of defining down “personhood” to protect abortion. The abortion lobby will let many more babies die this way rather than enter the discussion on when the baby becomes a person.
Terrible are the wages of sin.
