Not a problem for the left.

Just think of them as post-natal abortions.

Could it have anything to do with "child-savers" wasting time investigating every inicednt of spanking reported? Or verbal abuse.

In truth, child murder can no more be prevented than any other murder, or preventing any crime for that matter.

Any breakdown on RACE?

Breakdown on LEGAL or ILLEGAL status of the child or "parent(s)"?

Single "moms"?

Teenage "moms"?

Or is that a politically incorrect curiosity?

And probably 3 Americans were involved.

The rest? No es bueno.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.
