Holy Smokes

I'm speechless. This is the rationale used by a Canadian judge for why a mother who strangled her newborn child shouldn't get jail time.

“The fact that Canada has no abortion laws reflects that ‘while many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childrbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support,’ she writes.

The judge noted that infanticide laws and sentencing guidelines were not altered when the government made many changes to the Criminal Code in 2005, which she says shows that Canadians view the law as a ‘fair compromise of all the interests involved.’

‘Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant’s death, especially at the hands of the infant’s mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother.”

Read that a couple of times, folks. Then suffer awe at God's mercy by allowing such an evil world as ours to remain in existence.

It is a funny thing that there seems no regard for religion in the court decision...the judge should have maybe taken into account whether "the mother's will is God's will", what if God had a plan for that Baby? Then by taking a life she automatically forfeited the opportunity of God or Divinity to manifest into the world.

With the above being said; isn't man playing God when the right to kill is granted by man's own laws? For is it not God that gives Life but man who takes for granted that gift, and by doing so willfully refuses to see God - refusing to know God in that life - choosing Death instead...So it is to reject the Spirit of God within your soul, selling your soul to the God said: "No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold (be devoted) to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (the god of money, the god of the world/materialism)." [Matthew 6:24]...hence it is not proper for man to have two governments.

As for the Judge's sentence over the girl, well maybe God had mercy on the girl...for it is not our duty to punish but to see God's purpose in all things, for the Baby indeed came to deliver a message, as Life itself is a meaning on its own - as God is Life is therefore that only through Death we learn to appreciate Life.
