File this under most shocking video of the day. Maybe most shocking video of the year.
During yesterday’s BBC Sunday Morning Live program presumably covering the subject of abortion/euthanasia and handicapped children with an on screen title “can abortion be a kindness,” The Independent columnist Virginia Ironside openly defends the murder of handicapped children as the compassionate choice.
Did you get that? From placing a pillow over a childs face…to getting rid of a couple of cells. In her world, its all the same. It’s what “any good mother would do.”
You almost have to watch the video twice to truly grasp the horror of her dispassionate defense of the murder of children in the name of the elimination of suffering. The other guest gasps in awe. Even the host, whom I admittedly know nothing about, appears poised to move on to the next guest, before doing a double take at the “horrifying thing…” she just heard.
Don’t hold your breath, but if you are up for it, perhaps a note to Sunday Independent editor Tristan Davies could prick some consciences. You can write her at email@example.com
If you live in the UK and have some ideas on how we can express our outrage effectively, please let us know.
