Martinuk: A baby’s life must be worth more than this
Calgary Herald ^ | September 15, 2011 | Susan Martinuk

Posted on 09/17/2011 4:21:33 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

Six years ago, a 19-year-old Wetaskiwin teenager named Katrina Effert secretly gave birth in her parents’ downstairs bathroom, then strangled her newborn son with her thong underwear and tossed his body over the fence into a neighbour’s yard.

You know — just an average evening for a hormonal, out-of-sorts teenager.

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! ...

Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, And the flame consumes the chaff, So their root will be as rottenness, And their blossom will ascend like dust; Because they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, And despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

People like to make excuses, don’t they? This girl in the story could had ask for help if things in her life were that bad or could have considered adopting the baby to a caring family.

Poor little baby. That is so sad. God has gained another angel.

Perhaps, someone could share share some of this girl's 'early childhood' or 'the later years' education, reading and film favorites et al ; so that we might try and understand. . .

Animals do not treat their offspring this way. . .and so we should try an inform ourselves as to just 'where' DOES this pathetic excuse for humanity, come from. This planet; or somewhere else.

Sadly, we know she is not traveling alone. Plenty more out there, no doubt, similarly inclined.

“replaced the murder conviction with the lesser charge of infanticide.”

“Infanticide” is separate and lesser than “murder”?

That itself is sick.

"Six years ago, a 19-year-old Wetaskiwin teenager named Katrina Effert secretly gave birth in her parents’ downstairs bathroom, then strangled her newborn son with her thong underwear and tossed his body over the fence into a neighbour’s yard".

The fruits of legalizing abortion. If a human being is worth nothing and can be murdered in the mother's belly, then why should it's coming out of her belly add any more worth to it? If it's worthless, it's worthless. Why should inhaling a few breaths of air change anything?

It never ceases to amaze me just how heartless, conscience-less and evil so many women can be, even to the degree of murdering their own children by the millions, every single year. Yeah, many men support abortion too, which is in itself a cruelty and a gross evil. But it's the mother who carries out the murderous act. Given the fact that God has placed in every mother, (and father), a ferocious instinct to protce their children, at any cost, abortion makes it all the more clear that it's an act that eminates straight out of the deepest bowels of Hell.

Unbelievable. When does it become murder? Three months,six months, a year.

I think Peter Sanger says 2 years is when killing it should be illegal, although he’d probably have it be a misdemeanor.

evil people

Yes, they do.

Animals often kill their young. Sometimes they eat them. They don't know any better. They are animals.

She was, allegedly, a human. She was suppose to know better. That is the point. If she does not and her actions seem to show that she does not, then she is not safe to allow out without a muzzle and leash.

There are some feral cats who have moved into my yard. Except for 1 female who isn’t here anymore, they are horrible mothers, completely disinterested, just like this b*tch. Of all the kittens I saw over the summer, only 1 survived.

That reminds me, remember when Katie Couric was helping a lady by putting up a defense fund number on her show. Can’t remember the lady’s name, the one who drowned several of her children in the bathtub.

If memory serves me right, Katie was touting the idea that it would be okay to kill your kids through age 12, or something like that. If I was one of Katie’s kids I would be afraid, very afraid.

Liberals are so sick.

You know what is so ironic? If you read the comments with the article, they are blaming it on Christianity. The devil sure know how to turn things around.

Oops, the comments were on the story about the twins. But still the comment stands.

OK, did think of that after posting. . .but "usually" (no?) there appears an MO at work. (A damaged or weak offspring or simply 'too many"; become a threat to pack; etc ET AL. And of course, there are those threats from the male sperm donor. . .who has his own survival psychology.)

That said, yes, being "human, should distinguish one, by 'Will'; moral choices discerned, made, committed to....which brings one back to these those who appear to abandon any such viable, wise and moral options; and who have not as well, any 'what are" reasonable, 'primitive' excuses either. . .

Words do fail, when one is reduced to insulting animals when we are left to ascribe animal qualities to a human being's, worst inclinations.
