Texas Democrat Seeks To Make Infanticide A Mere Felony

In yet another outrageous affront to morality, a Liberal Democrat in Texas is seeking to make the killing of a baby under one year old a mere felony.

A Texas Democrat introduced the "Infanticide Bill" this week.
Cassy Fiano reported on this disgusting bill:

It defines infanticide as:

A person commits an offense if the person wilfully by an act or omission causes the death of a child to whom the person gave birth within the 12-month period preceding the child’s death

The bill says that infanticide should not be prosecuted as murder, though, as long as:

… at the time of the act or omission, the person’s judgment was impaired as a result of the effects of giving birth or the effects of lactation following the birth.

Infanticide would become a felony, punishable by no more than two years in prison, with a minimum of 180 days, and/or a fine of no more than $10,000.

When such a thing can be so brazenly pursued I fear what is likely to come next. Who will stand against this evil and come to the aid of the most defenseless and oppressed class of humanity the world has ever known?

"O LORD, the God who avenges,
O God who avenges, shine forth.

Rise up, O Judge of the earth;
pay back to the proud what they deserve.

How long will the wicked, O LORD,
how long will the wicked be jubilant?

They pour out arrogant words;
all the evildoers are full of boasting.

They crush your people, O LORD;
they oppress your inheritance.

They slay the widow and the alien;
they murder the fatherless.

They say, "The LORD does not see;
the God of Jacob pays no heed."

Take heed, you senseless ones among the people;
you fools, when will you become wise?

Does he who implanted the ear not hear?
Does he who formed the eye not see?

Does he who disciplines nations not punish?
Does he who teaches man lack knowledge?

The LORD knows the thoughts of man;
he knows that they are futile.

Blessed is the man you discipline, O LORD,
the man you teach from your law;

you grant him relief from days of trouble,
till a pit is dug for the wicked.

For the LORD will not reject his people;
he will never forsake his inheritance.

Judgment will again be founded on righteousness,
and all the upright in heart will follow it.

Who will rise up for me against the wicked?
Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?

Unless the LORD had given me help,
I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.

When I said, "My foot is slipping,"
your love, O LORD, supported me.

When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought joy to my soul.

Can a corrupt throne be allied with you—
one that brings on misery by its decrees?

They band together against the righteous
and condemn the innocent to death.

But the LORD has become my fortress,
and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.

He will repay them for their sins
and destroy them for their wickedness;
the LORD our God will destroy them." Psalm 94
