I'm amazed by liberal semantics

Interestingly, the lead article on Oct. 17 read "Baby killer gets 25 to life." Indeed, the mother was convicted of killing her baby shortly after birth and tossing the lifeless body into a trash bin.

A sickening thought and visual for most of civilized society. However, had she just aborted/killed the baby a few moments earlier, such would have been legal and nothing would have been said.

The bottom line is that the litmus test for loyal leftist liberals and faithful Democrats is the belief in abortion. Please don't bore me with the "pro-choice" mantra. The "choice" was made long before the pregnancy occurred. Had her timing been different, in the minds and hearts of pro-abortion advocates and
Planned Parenthood, this mother would have been applauded and hailed as a smart, liberated woman.

Can anyone reconcile this hypocrisy and explain this contemptible belief system for those of us who don't embrace this depraved would view and prefer to land on the side of life for all who have the opportunity to live? Clearly the Left would have loved Sarah Palin and sung her praises if she were a Democrat and had aborted her new son.

I'm pleased that even most liberals assign infinite value to a newly born child. However, I'm amazed, but not surprised, that if killed and sucked into a sink just minutes before birth - yes, any time during the third trimester, or even as part of a partial birth - the baby is seen as nothing but fetal matter.

I remember well when my wife and I would visit the doctor prior to the birth of each of our four children, the doctor would ask how mom and the baby were doing. I never heard the doctor ask how mom and the fetus were doing.
