"...while many Canadians undoubtedly view abortion as a less than ideal solution to unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancy, they generally understand, accept and sympathize with the onerous demands pregnancy and childbirth exact from mothers, especially mothers without support.”This young woman lived with her parents, so how exactly didn't she have support? There is also such a thing called adoption. The judge goes on:
Really, I don't grieve so much for the mother. I grieve for the baby that was murdered by the one person who should have loved him most in the world.
“Naturally, Canadians are grieved by an infant’s death, especially at the hands of the infant’s mother, but Canadians also grieve for the mother,”
So it seems that because that since abortion is legal and tax payer funded in Canada killing your baby shortly after live birth is perfectly acceptable. A child actually requires work so the mother who can't be bothered to do that work can just kill that baby and doesn't mean a darn thing. Who cares about the life of the child? That baby had no rights in the country of Canada. He was breathing, had a heartbeat, and was crying. But apparently crying was the problem:
Effert, 19 at the time of the infanticide, told the court she worried about what her parents would think of having to listen to the cries of a newborn baby in the houseSo if you treat your baby like a piece of trash due to a disturbed mind as opposed to being selfish. She was not disturbed enough to lie about her pregnancy or her actions. She was rational enough to try to blame the murder on an innocent person, her baby daddy. Notice the word infanticide, it was not even considered murder. Quite literally, in Canada this baby was not even really human. She never bothered to tell her parents she was pregnant so how would she know what they would have thought. She also lied to the police on more than one occasion. Her original story was that she was virgin, after the baby was identified as being hers, she then tried to blame the death on her the baby's father. The judge used this as an excuse:
“I am of the view that those actions, along with the action of throwing her baby’s body over her back fence, are painful evidence of Ms. Effert’s irrational behavior as a result of her disturbed mind,”
We have long since crossed a line that life is no longer consider sacred. There are no easy answers when it comes to abortion. But abortion on demand has led to this type of thinking. That baby "Rodney" meant nothing. You see she didn't bother to get an abortion, she gave birth and then murdered her child. But because she should have gone and had an abortion, little Rodney didn't deserve to live, it is ok that she wrapped her underwear around his neck until he was no longer breathing. She choked the life out of her own child and faces no prison term.
Judge Veit issued the verdict in part because she heard testimony from witnesses that Effert faced sever persecution in prison, where fellow inmates called her “baby killer.”Isn't that exactly what she is? So because someone calls her on it and it might hurt her feelings she goes free. Just add this to the long list of why I wouldn't want to live Canada.
