Also, it must be noted that this is not humanity, but inhumanity in its fallen state. This is the realm where demons and passions prevail.

o dear Lord! look how irrational it is, how  is it that a reasonable adult, think of such horror as a solution to  dealing with a faked pregnancy? it started with a lie and ended with murder, truly the signature work of the Evil One working in unison with a consenting human to make it an Inhuman action yet Human Evil at the same time.

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

Funny, it is just as much murder if that same fetus is aborted, and yet the law says it is legal.

Thank you for this, my friend.

The way the law treats the body of a developing foetus/child in the womb is entirely schizophrenic and bizarre.

The test of whether or not the developing foetus/child is worth protecting appears to be the mother's predisposition towards it. If you were to abort the child against her will, you would be up for all sorts of criminal charges, not to mention multiple species of tortious liability -- but if she wishes for it, you're sweet. In what other context is a person's attitude determinative of another person's legal rights??

Lord, have mercy!

The legal ramifications of killing a child in utero would apply here whether the child were full term or not. Is the situation so different over there?
