I've seen this at many different sources and it hasn't gotten any better from the first. RWN has this one:
An Alberta judge has let a woman who strangled her newborn son walk free by arguing that Canada’s absence of a law on abortion signals that Canadians “sympathize” with the mother.
“We live in a country where there is no protection for children in the womb right up until birth and now this judge has extended the protection for the perpetrator rather than the victim, even though the child is born and as such should be protected by the court,” said Jim Hughes, national president of Campaign Life Coalition.
Katrina Effert of Wetaskiwin, Alberta gave birth secretly in her parents’ downstairs bathroom on April 13, 2005, and then later strangled the newborn and threw his body over a fence. She was 19 at the time.
She has been found guilty of second-degree murder by two juries, but both times the judgment was thrown out by the appeals court. In May, the Alberta Court of Appeal overturned her 2009 murder conviction and replaced it with the lesser charge of infanticide.
On Friday, Effert got a three-year suspended sentence from Justice Joanne Veit of the Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench. As a result, she was able to walk out of court, though she will have to abide by certain conditions.
Think that kind of moonbattery will never make it to this side of the border? Think again. It’s already here. Did you know that 2 years ago, a Texas Congresswoman introduced an infanticide bill that would define the murder of your own baby as not murder as long as the infant is less than 1 year old:Democrat Pushing Bill To Make Killing An Infant Not Equal To Murder? An example of Democrat/liberal compassion. Did you also know that the above scenario in Canada is legal in several states including Virginia? Really. If a mom lives in Virginia, for instance, she won’t even be charged with anything as 4th trimester abortions are AOK and protected by Democrat ghouls:
Who are the Democrats that would support such barbarity? Answer: BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, mmmm mmmmm mmmmm. As an Illinois Senator, he protected by his vote a procedure known “live birth abortion” where babies were born alive and left in soiled linen closets to die while crying and screaming. It is utter depravity and a crime against humanity. Yet 4 times Obama voted to protect 4th trimester abortion/infanticide (more here and here):
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. - Romans 1 (NIV)
