When I saw this story earlier today on Drudge, I thought about blogging about it, but it made me nauseous so I just tried to block it out of my mind.
Odds are, if you’re here, you already know about it. The short version is that a woman in Missouri, who was 8 months pregnant, was strangled to death. After which, the murderer(s) proceeded to cut the
baby fetus out of the murdered woman’s belly. Good news has emerged, however…
News has just broken that the
baby fetus has been found alive and has a good chance of survival. This means that the husband, who lost his wife today, now has a new daughter fetus as some measure of comfort in this horrible time in his life.
Interestingly, Sheriff Ben Espey ran into trouble when trying to get an amber alert issued for the
“We had a live baby, and I thought that should qualify as an Amber Alert,” he said. “The information I was getting was that we didn’t have enough information such as hair color, eye color, skin complexion, size and weight.”
I guess Missouri authorities had the same problem that the Old Media is having with this story. Why put out an Amber Alert for a fetus? I mean, it’s only a fetus. Might as well throw it out in the yard as do anything with it. Perhaps the assailant in question was simply an amateur abortionist – in which case, they may have just made Time Magazine’s list for Person of the Year.
Don’t murderers have the right to choose too? Surely the ACLU thinks so.
Most news accounts I’ve seen have referred to the baby as a fetus – not a baby. Rob at Say Anything jumped on this angle right away, and as usual, he’s right.
To the left, a baby is only a baby when it’s convenient. I’ve seen women bubbling over with joy at the prospect of a new pregnancy. The baby showers are overflowing with women who only vote Dim-O-Crack to protect their right to suck that same baby out through a vacuum. Oh wait, in that instance it’s only a fetus. You don’t have to have fetus showers. Hypocrites all.
The fact that so many media outlets (CNN, The UK Independent, ABC News, countless others) initially reported the baby as a fetus and – only since the baby has been found – have taken to calling it a baby, shows how morally bankrupt they’ve truly become.
Back to today’s crime, it is beyond my comprehension that some sub-human sack of debris could actually conceive a plan like this, and even more horribly, carry it out. Apparently, this style of stab-and-grab murder is not unique.
In the most recent case, a 21-year-old woman was shot to death in Oklahoma in December 2003, allegedly by another woman who pretended the 6-month-old fetus was her child. The fetus died and prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
In the Six Meat world of justice, once these murderers are found guilty, they would be given the death penalty – but there would be no sanitary lethal injection – no merciful electric chair. They would be tortured to death – some type of creative torture that keeps them alive for days before they actually expire. This type of punishment might actually deter other would-be murderers with similar ideas.
I guess these bastards are lucky I’m not in charge. May they rot in hell.
