PURE EVIL: Law Will Allow Abortion of ONE Twin But Not the Other
For most parents, finding out that they are pregnant with twins would be a joyous occasion. But apparently not everyone feels that way, and some have taken disturbing measures to end the life of one of the babies.
A recent ruling in Norway will allow women — citizens and foreigners — to abort one baby in the country’s hospitals, even if he or she is perfectly healthy, according to The Local.
The evil procedure, known as “selective reduction,” has been prohibited in many countries, including Norway’s neighbors Sweden and Denmark, but this new law has opened the door for women from those countries to travel to Norway to kill one of their unborn children for no other reason than their desire not to have more than one child at a time.
“All women, regardless of whether they are Norwegian or foreign women residing in Norway, have the same right to abortion and fetal reduction,” said Torunn Janbu from Norway’s Directorate of Health.
This sick form of abortion tourism will reportedly be treated the same as other abortions — legal up until the end of the 12th week of pregnancy, or the end of the first trimester.
Never mind the fact that at 12 weeks these babies have fingerprints, all major organs, tooth buds and the ability to curl their fingers and toes.
Health authorities punted on the ethical issue of aborting a perfectly healthy baby — although even if the baby had a disease or illness, its life should still hold inalienable value and shouldn’t be subjected to the whims of a parent who didn’t plan for two children.
“We just inform the local health services about how to apply the law,” Janbu told The Local.
Many doctors warned against the decision, fearing that this “selective reduction” would pose serious health risks for both the mother and the remaining baby.
“We have not found any medical benefit from this,” Dr. Birgitte Heiberg Kahrs, a specialist in fetal medicine at St. Olav’s Hospital in Oslo, said. “On the contrary, it exposes the second child in the womb to danger as the abortion risk increases.”
Not to mention it’s pure evil.
How any parent could take the life of her own child is beyond me, but choosing to keep one child and not the other is a whole new level of disturbing.
