While true to the numbers, Mothers are more likely to murder infants
directly [drown, suffocate, poison - pre-meditate], Fathers are more
likely to shake babies, [involuntary murder], and are more likely to kill
much later via family murder suicide shootings.Either way - it
horrible.But the common denomiator in ALL theses sad tradgedies is
DESPARATION, and a very real feeling hopelessness.
According to liberal philosophers Peter Singer and Steven Pinker, infanticide is
excusable, if you do it early enough -- sort of like fourth-trimester abortion.
Many thousands are killed each year by abortions that get very little if any
headlines..This method of killing is accepted by the law. I will never
forget the image in my mind of the true events a Professor at Brown University
shared with with my class back in 1972.He share with us the experiences he
had in the lab as children were being aborted that were breathing but was
drowned in a tub of water to snuff out their lives. He told of one childthat was dunk 7 times before it die.
