COLLEGE STUDENT HORROR TREND: Acceptable to Kill Children Up to 4 or 5-years-old?
.. Prolife groups such as Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust report that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”
“We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit,” said Mark Harrington, director of Created Equal. “While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular.”
Campuses where the high school, college students, local activists and staff members of Created Equal have encountered this opinion include Purdue, University of Minnesota, and University of Central Florida. And at Ohio State earlier this year, the group captured a debate on video between one of its members and an older woman on campus who defended infanticide.
“This is the whole problem with devaluing human life at any stage—it will naturally grow to include other groups of humans; in this case, born humans as well as preborn humans,” Harrington said. “ talked with one young man at the University of Minnesota who thought it was alright to kill children if they were under the age of 5 years old, as he did not consider them persons until that age.”
Kristina Garza, spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, a prolife organization that often sets up anti-abortion displays on campuses along the West Coast, said her group also frequently encounters college students who accept infanticide.
“For those who are firmly for abortion, because they understand it kills a human being, it’s very easy for them to accept killing a human being after birth,” Garza said. “There is this notion that is common on campus, that it’s OK to kill babies because somehow we don’t become human until we are self aware.”
“A common number that is going around is 4 years old,” she adds.
As for the trend, Garza said there’s an explanation for it…
boy that's a fuckin stretch aint it ?
In the Bible God ordered his people to kill their children who didn't act right.
you religious extremists
Wrong again. I am not a religious extremist.
Quote:In the Bible God ordered his people to kill their children who didn't act right.
Your point? Do you see God invoked in the article? Or are saying Bible verses are acted upon in the modern world?
If you are looking to find scripture in action look to Islamists.
Relying on faith healing & prayer
instead of medical treatment
Relying on faith healing:
We have been unable to find references to any double-blind controlled studies which compare the effectiveness of faith healing in place of regular medical procedures. We located a few statements and surveys:
Jehovah's Witnesses: In 1997-FEB, the writer of a book review in the American Medical Association's journal estimated that the Jehovah's Witnesses' belief about blood transfusions has "led thousands to die needlessly." 1 The Watchtower periodical Awake once showed pictures of Jehovah's Witnesses children who followed the churches ban on blood transfusions and died. 2 It is, of course, unknown how many would still have died even if they had transfusion(s).
Christian Science: William F. Simpson, an assistant professor of mathematics and computer science at Emporia State University conducted an exploratory study into the effectiveness of Christian Science healing. He compared alumni records from a Christian Science school (Principia College in Elsah, IL) with those from the secular University of Kansas in Lawrence, KS. One would expect that if Christian Science healing is as effective as conventional medicine, then the graduates of Principia College would live longer than those from Kansas. This is because the Church forbids the use of alcohol and tobacco. But the results were in the opposite direction. The death rates among Principia graduates from 1934 to 1948 were significantly higher than those of the University of Kansas graduates. (26.2 vs. 20.9% for men; 11.3 vs. 9.9% for women).
A more realistic study was made later, comparing the mortality of Christian Scientists and Seventh-day Adventists. Both denominations abstain from alcohol and tobacco. Even greater differences were found in the second test, again with Christian Scientists having higher mortality rates. 3,4 This type of study is fairly crude; its results should not be treated as precise or conclusive. Graduates at different universities may have, on average, been raised under different conditions, or might enter professions of differing danger levels, they might have entered military service at different rates, etc. However, the studies appear to indicate that Christian Science healing is significantly less effective than standard medicine. That is, choosing Christian Science prayer in place of conventional medicine causes additional, preventable deaths.
U.S. death toll among infants and children: In 1998-APR, Dr. Seth Asser, a critical-care pediatrician at Methodist Children's Hospital in San Antonio, and Rita Swan, head of the advocacy group Children's Healthcare is a Legal Duty (CHILD) authored a paper in the professional journal Pediatrics. Asser studied 172 reported deaths of infants and children between 1975 and 1995. Deaths were found in 34 states among members of 23 religious groups. They belonged to families of Christian Scientist, Faith Tabernacle, Faith Assembly and several other religious groups that practice faith healing....
No need to leave that good ol' down-home religion
