The Culture of Death in Texas |
Last Monday, November 22, 2004 in Plano, Texas, 10 month-old Margaret Elizabeth Schlosser bled to death after her mother, Dena Schlosser, butchered her by cutting off her arms.
Dena Schlosser, mother of two other children, had been diagnosed with postpartum depression and briefly hospitalized and later put on a psychotropic drug, which she was no longer taking at the time she committed the crime.
Just as other similar cases have made headlines in recent years, the story about the murder of little Margaret Elizabeth made front-page news across the country. With alarming frequency we read about parents who kill, maim, beat, starve, burn and torture their children. Often, emotional and psychological problems or drugs are blamed. Sometimes no explanation presents itself. In all cases, we are shown the face of evil.
People write letters-to-the editor expressing shock and concern asking how a mother could do such a thing to her own baby?
Perhaps we should consider the culture in which we live, where every day in the United States more than 4,000 babies are legally crushed, poisoned, or dismembered and beheaded and scraped from the womb by abortionists. In a society where parents have the power to have their children killed prior to birth, where children are considered nothing more than property to be disposed of at will, where abortion is promoted as a solution to the problem at hand, it follows that the Margaret Elizabeths of this world have at least one strike against them.
We live in a culture of death. Dana Schlosser apparently thought the answer to her particular problems on that Monday lay in her taking a knife and brutally murdering her beautiful baby daughter.
What is it going to take to bring us back to a culture of life?
"By replacing ‘peace’ with ‘choice,’ or more accurately, ‘killing the innocent on earth,’ Planned Parenthood is essentially saying ‘abortion on earth,’" Sedlak said. "This blatant mockery of Christian values and of Christ Himself truly demonstrates the bigoted, anti-religion, anti-God nature of Planned Parenthood."
