    Interesting story of how Europe is beginning to view cosmetic defects in a child (cleft palletes) reason enough for a late term abortion, even though it's a simple surgical proceedure to rectify at birth.

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,3604,1439312,00.html

    The allowable murder of any undesirable children due to cosmetic defects was also a policy of which previous regime in Europe?

    But...what a HORRIBLE story. I swear, the more I read this, the harder I pray for biblical Prophecies to be fulfilled...I'm tired of living in such a wretched world. :(

    Heres my problem with this. I hear all this whining and moaning about how other countries don't have a say in how we run our country, in fact people talk about wanting to charge two supreme court justices for talk of 'international law' yet some people feel we can interject our position on other countries. why is that?

    My problem is not the country - it's the lack of morality on the part of doctors and citizens of the world. :(

    It's a HORRIBLE story...about the needless murder of a child.

    but wouldn't it be that countries responsibility to delineate the morality of their doctors and citizens? people here seem to think that its the governments responsibility for doing the same here.

    and yes, it is a horrible story.

    I don't expect Europe will revise their law or morality based upon our loathing for some of their more questionable child terminations. The problem is that their morality is slipping so fast on the abortion issue that even the law is not being upheld properly...

    Seriously handicapped because of an easily operable hairlip?

    Sheesh. I mean the respect for the letter of the law is nonexistant, and the worst part is you don't hear one peep of outrage in their left-monopolized media, which is something you'd certainly have in the U.S.A.

    Perhaps. But the true point is a horrible lack of personal responsibility.
    And you frigging know it.

    But hey, stay in your dream world attaching yourselves to viewpoints only when they suit you. It's your right.

    How can anybody not hear their soul screaming when they read that a child was killed because of a cleft palate?

    What is wrong with these people?!
