This case will probably morph into an assault case…but it should make us all ask certain legal and moral questions.
Authorities say a 37-year-old Los Angeles man has been arrested on suspicion of murder for the death of an unborn child believed to be his….Police say the arrest came after an investigation on Monday revealed "suspicious circumstances of a miscarriage." Investigators estimate the fetus was in its 13th week.
Why should this suspect be arrested for suspicion of murder, when the mother could have legally aborted the child with the praise and adoration of many? Why is the “fetus” considered a child and therefore “able to be murdered” only in certain cases? Why would the method of the killing make an abortion legal, while in an assault situation it becomes murder?
We are clearly a very confused culture and society. We want to make excuses for our leniency and even in some cases taking pleasure in abortion/murder, while at the same time we want to be able to call the act murder when there is an assault involved the the mother wanted the baby. There is something twisted and perverse about all this.
Why would anyone accept the Margaret Sanger Award?
I found it quite humorous to hear that President Obama won the Nobel peace prize yesterday. For me it raises the question of what peace means? How has the President brought about greater peace? Has he healed divisions? Has he ended worldly conflict somewhere?
Maybe he should have been awarded with the Nobel Prize for Literature for inventing the unique and remarkable slogan "Yes, we can" and “hope and change”?
Or maybe he should have been awarded the Prize for Medicine for inventing a miraculous Healthcare Reform plan that claims to save money while around the world, the same system is losing money and going under–with completely inferior care?
Or how about the Prize for Physics working to stop this world destroying itself due to global warming, when all the current scientific evidence is pointing in the opposite direction? Just how short-sighted are we?
And why should he be overlooked for the Prize for Economics for spending almost $800 billion dollars to create a negative number of jobs in America, throwing away much of that money in government waste and graft?
You would be hard-pressed to find any person on Earth or in history, who has achieved so much in such a short time.
