wyrd thoughts: my other blog

"The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things...."

News and views about current affairs, religious freedom issues, and the fight against euthanasia. Also the latest about my cats, goats, sheep, geese and chickens, life in Menominee county, and whatever else is on my mind.

Woman attempts to kill autistic daughter, calls it 'mercy killing'

A woman tried to kill her 6 year old daughter, who suffers from autism and cerebral palsy. Her defense is that it was an attempted 'mercy killing'.

The acceptance of the pro-death philosophy is providing an out for criminals. 'Mercy' criminals often get away with their crimes or get shorter sentences.

Don't you long for the days when it was worse to try to harm a disabled person than an able-bodied one?
