You’ve already read about this story. It has been shared widely on social media and mainstream news outlets are actually covering it.
Like Brian Lilley shares in the video below, I didn’t want to write or talk about this story. I gave birth to my son two weeks ago today, three weeks earlier than his due date. This story is just too much for me right now. That little humans like Jack are being used as eco-fuel… But like Brian explains, we need to talk about this story, even if we don’t want to.
And Wesley J. Smith, as always, has some powerful words to share:

Shocked yes, but not surprised. The law only reflects our values. In a morally polyglot society, many of us decide that what is legal is also “right.” That means, for many, abortion is morally correct—a view that immediately and logically transforms their perception of fetuses into a less-than-human “other.” Indeed, these days the moral value of fetuses depends wholly on whether they are wanted or unwelcomed.
To put it bluntly, legalizing abortion at will transformed fetuses in the minds of at least half the population into a killable caste—akin to a tumor or a vial of tainted blood—that can be destroyed at will (except in the latest stage of pregnancy, and in the USA, often even then).
