If you have ever felt the kind of love a mother feels the instant she knows that there is a child growing inside, then you will know how wrong it is to take away that life.

i think it crazy how killing a baby is seen as some kind of personnel freedom that heroic women/men had to fight for and secure for future generations.
do you see how warped our perception on reality is?
Accepting murder of innocents as a right or normal is just one symptom of a society that has gone down the wrong path in so many ways. By now we should be getting better. Instead we have hate, corruption, jealousy, .... so many traits that should have been reduced through evolution.
Most animal species do a better job of that than humans.
Ethologists, or animal behaviorists, however, know that infanticide is not confined to humans and that it is often practiced by animals. African wild dogs bite and kill infant dogs. Male lions will slay the offspring of a neighboring pride. Female gerbils will often kill and eat their young. Bears sometimes kill small cubs during the mating season. And many other species batter, slaughter and cannibalize their offspring.
China has officially lifted its one-child policy as part of its 13th five-year plan. The question is whether China can limit the negative economic effects of its population growth, despite having created the most lopsided population on the planet. In all likelihood, a two-child policy will not do it.
As a result of the one-child policy, China’s population is about 400 million people smaller than it would otherwise be. Over 20 percent of the population is over 55, and the number of younger people is plummeting. By 2050, the number of “senior” Chinese will equal Europe’s entire population and outstrip Americans of all ages!
