An excerpt from, “Infanticide Is The Historical Hallmark Of A Pagan Culture” By Georgi Boorman, The Federalist, February 4, 2019:

Abortion and infanticide have historically been common practices. In the first century AD, infanticide was a common and culturally accepted practice across the world. The murder of infants was a regular occurrence in Europe into the Middle Ages and beyond, despite being condemned by both church and state.

The practice was not confined to the desperate, illiterate, impoverished masses, as if “enlightened” thinkers knew better. The Twelve Tables of Roman Law, admired by Cicero, contains the command that, “A dreadfully deformed child shall be quickly killed.”

Likewise, the wealthy first century Roman philosopher Seneca once wrote, “We doom scabby sheep to the knife, lest they should infect our flocks. We destroy monstrous births, and we also drown our children if they are born weakly or unnaturally formed; to separate what is useless from what is sound is an act, not of anger, but of reason.” This from a Stoic, who supposedly believed virtue to be the highest good. Notably, Seneca was Nero’s tutor.

Infanticide was an acknowledged option for any child who was deformed, sickly, of uncertain paternity, the wrong sex, or simply unnecessary to the household. Aristotle, revered by many a university professor, wrote that, “As to exposing or rearing the children born, let there be a law that no deformed child shall be reared,” and “if any people have a child as a result of intercourse in contravention of these regulations, abortion must be practiced on it before it has developed sensation and life.”

. . .

Northam’s endorsement of infanticide by exposure is only shocking because we have lived in a rare cultural moment in which infanticide is considered abhorrent. This extraordinary development is no accident. A sense of morality about life and death is not the product of evolution over the last 2,000 years. Rather, humanity’s progress out of death culture is due to nothing less than Judeo-Christian influence.

As formerly mentioned, the Christian God condemned child sacrifice through his prophets; Israelites were specifically commanded not to kill their children. The concept of bloodguilt is found throughout the Old Testament, even in cases where death was seemingly accidental.

      I admit not have the time to watch a single video of the piece, which I suspect, by its different titles to be sad confessions, fact spellings about a voluntary end of life, regrets, etc. I trust all those videos to be sincere and hopefully heart melting to the hardened abortionists. I’ll just attempt a comment on the excerpt from, “Infanticide Is The Historical Hallmark Of A Pagan Culture” By Georgi Boorman.
      Infanticide has always been, and truly even when the Hebrews forbade it, when the other cultures gradually stop making it a cult, the Spartans did not flinch from that practice. This infanticide in Sparte by some ancient writing apparently was conducted by the mothers themselves. Was it a remnant to the cult of the Amazones?
      The Hebrews did not practice infanticide, but clearly, and from the laws of Moses, the deformed, the crippled, deft & dumbs were suffering some discrimination for being impure, as perhaps the lepers. It is Jesus Christ who put an end of it. Remember he was not here to judge but to cure and to save. He cured many from illnesses, and even some from birth-defects. He made a scandal in the Sanhedrin for creating eyes out of mud and spit to a man born with ocular cavities (born with no eyes). For Jesus, it was more than bringing physical goodwill, than to convince who He was, that is God on earth in search of souls to save. That is the grand lesson from Jesus Christ, who, believe it or not if He was or if he was not God in the flesh, His work…

        … That is the grand lesson from Jesus Christ, who, believe it or not if He was or if he was not God in the flesh, His work to save everyone cannot be denied. He forgave many who sincerely repented, and probably even some who had committed the grave sin of infanticide.
        Then there is an other aspect, that many neo-con Christians alas do not speak much, and it is the colorblindness of Jesus Christ. Yes, Jesus was blond with blue eyes, as His Mother the BVM, but they were colorblind. An example: St. Simon the Zealot, or ‘the leper’ was a mulatto born of a renown Jew and a black bonds woman. Some sort of an Ismael born of Abraham & the bondswoman Agar. Our Lord made a black man an Apostle! The abortion on the ground of bloodguilt, as well the resulting of imprudence, and even of bullying has no place in a Christian world.

        Abortion is called a “choice” by those confused ones. Of course it is not a choice. It is a injustice against the weakest, and the pro-choice know that, and they are furious against themselves to be the subject to the cruel mockery of the devil which has used their credulity at their expense. The devil conned Eve out of a simple lie: “You’ll be like god, and for Eve, her god was just Adam”, so the lie has evolved a little, but by not much: “You’ll have control about what Adam gave you, and therefore you’ll be his equal”. Poor Eve of the infanticide world! She has become here own Cain against her own flesh. You see, you’ll always lose at discussing with the serpent. It has not changed.
        Then there are the little savants, all proud of their graduated studies of sociology, who have the presumption to make wiser choices than God. They are the first dupe to the mocking injustices of the devil which is named ‘affirmative action’, a code-name for injustice and robbery of the real talents to the niggardly favoritism of nullities for the sake of satisfying ‘quotas’. Don’t you see that the devil laughs at your niggard feel-good injustice, which will lead to the predictable reactionary real crime, the murderous crime which gives green-light to the abortion of the colored undesirables.

        … Those evils come from the ignorance of God, and of his words, but before all, it comes from the ignorance of the most simple phrase which everyone in the Christian world pronounce every day during the Lord’s Prayer: “Thy will be done”. This phrase includes the total submissions to the will of God, be a woman prudent or unwise, be a woman expecting or barren, be a family small or numerous, the will of God comes first. Is not that what St. Peter tells us at the to-day’s mass of the third Sunday after Pentecost? in order to have Christian happiness? {1 Peter ch. 5, vs. 6-7}

        That would put an end to all domestic or national disorders and rebellions.
