Victoria, Australia: 108 late-term babies killed for psycho-social reasons in 2005

At 23-27 weeks of pregnancy, when other premature babies are being cared for in the hospital nursery, the records for 2005 show that 108 healthy babies were terminated for psychosocial reasons, which is five times as many as those terminated for congenital abnormality.

This makes me very suspicious of Canadian stats.

Instead of being wide awake to the devastating violence of late abortion, the public is being lulled as to how rare it is and how necessary it is in the face of lethal abnormality.

In my view, if adults are so psychologically disturbed that they would take their healthy, 20-week baby, visibly kicking and jumping in the womb, to an abortion clinic, those people need urgent psychological and social help.

EXACTLY. Eliminate the problem, not the child.

De Crespigny's argument lacks moral balance. It is as if the baby does not exist.

That's exactly what feminists do: ignore the unborn child.

For our generation, late abortion is the test of whether or not our society sinks into savagery, deaf to babies so callously sacrificed to the psychosocial comfort of adults.
