I remember the day the darling, brown haired, hazel eyed two year old Florida girl was reported ‘’missing” after her mom claimed she hadn’t seen her for thirty-one days. Any mom who is remiss to report her daughter missing for over a month is incomprehensible to most. Furthermore, any mom who is photographed partying and competing in hot body contests during that interim makes guilt pretty evident. Sure enough, Caylee’s remains were found six months later and her mom Casey is facing the death penalty.
I was listening to an analysis show last week after court went into recess. The panel was discussing the motive behind Casey killing Caylee. The majority on the panel agreed it was because Casey wanted her freedom and didn’t want to raise Caylee in the first place. Attorney/Women’s Libber, Lisa Bloom (daughter of spotlight queen attorney, Gloria Allred) made a ridiculous statement that should have connected some serious dots for viewers. Unfortunately it probably flew by the wayside. However, it hit my heart hard. Bloom said the Anthony case exemplifies ‘’why a mother should never be forced to carry a baby to full term.” Aaahh, ok Ms. Bloom, so in essence it would have been better if Casey would have just killed Caylee in the womb instead of waiting two years to kill her? This ignorant, insensitive comment really made me think about the correlation between abortion and child homicide. This correlation is rarely talked about and rarely made. However, they are the very same things that encompass the very same motive and have the very same outcome.
Murder is defined as the taking of another life. What signals life? A heart beat. When someone is checking for a sign of life what do they look for? A heart beat. A fetus has a heartbeat at four weeks old thus, it is a life. By time the majority of women (who tend to find out at least four weeks after conception) find out she is pregnant, there is already a heartbeat. So when one does away with the heartbeat they are doing away with a life. When a woman goes to abort her child, all measures are taken in order to stop the heartbeat of the child which ultimately ceases the child’s life. If there is a heartbeat that means there is life. If you stop the heartbeat you stop the life. One can only be pronounced dead when there is no heartbeat. It’s pretty simple. You don’t need to be a doctor to figure this out.
So, why is it that if a child is in the womb the mother has the right to stop the heart beat, (kill/murder) the child but when the child is outside the womb they aren’t allowed to do so? In both cases, the mother makes the choice to stop the heartbeat of the child. In both cases, the child suffers a horrible death. In both cases the mother chooses the life will no longer continue. Truth is, there is no difference. Both have the same end result; the cessation of a heartbeat, the cessation of a life.
So when Liberal talking heads like Lisa Bloom argue the Casey Anthony case exemplifies why a woman shouldn’t be ‘’forced’’ to carry a baby if she doesn’t want to, it clearly exemplifies the hypocrisy of the pro-abortion mentality. Therefore, in context of this deranged mindset, if Casey would have been able to muffle Caylee and stop her heartbeat while Caylee was in her belly, that ‘’choice’’ would have been okay according to Bloom. I know many will use the washed up argument that ‘’it’s a woman’s body and she can do what she wants with her body.” No it’s not her body. It is a body inside of her body. It is the baby’s heartbeat she is stopping not her own heartbeat. It is the child’s limbs that are being torn off, not her limbs. If Casey Anthony wanted to go chloroform herself, throw herself in the trunk of her car, put duct tape around her own mouth then throw her body in the woods to rot, that is her body. That is her choice. But since she did it to another person, she is being tried for homicide. Why is the separation of personhood only acknowledged after birth? Last time I checked when a woman is pregnant there are two heartbeats; the mom’s and the child’s. They are two separate entities. The whole ‘’it’s my body’’ argument is a sheepish way out for a woman to ignore the reality of her babies personhood. It is a way out for her to acknowledge she is stopping her little girl or little boy’s heart beat. This is the very reason Planned Parenthood is hell bent on overturning laws that require a woman to have a sonogram prior to terminating her child’s life. That mother will see the heartbeat and that baby’s personhood will speak for itself, thus proving it’s alive and she is about to kill it.
So, why can’t Casey’s defense team argue that it was Casey’s “choice” to kill Caylee? What is the difference? What is the difference if Casey ‘’chose’’ to kill little Caylee when she was in her belly or that she “chose” to kill Caylee outside of her belly? Each method would have the same outcome; death.
Furthermore, why is it considered double homicide when someone murders a woman who is pregnant if it’s not a person? For instance, Scott Peterson who murdered his wife Laci and unborn son Conner in 2002 was tried for double homicide. He was not solely tried for the death of Laci but that of their unborn child. This is an admission that little Conner was a life. Scott didn’t want to be married anymore and he didn’t want Conner so he did away with them. Millions of women do away with their children every day in the name of ‘’choice’’ and they aren’t put on trial for it.
The hypocrisy of the pro-abortion movement is exemplified in murder cases every day. Andrea Yates drowned all her children in a bath tub what was it called? Homicide. Susan Smith drove her car into a watery grave killing her three babies. What was it called? Homicide. In all cases the heartbeat of the child was stopped and the child’s breathing ceased. Truth is, when a woman walks into an abortion clinic she is going to abort her baby; meaning she is going to put a stop to the heartbeat which will ultimately end up in the cessation of the child’s breathing. This will lead to the death of the child. So why is it when a woman stops the heartbeat of her child in the womb is that not considered homicide?
According to the pro-abortionists, there should be no outrage over Casey killing Caylee because it was her “choice.” There should be no trial because Casey didn’t want Caylee just the same way millions of mothers feel as they walk into Planned Parenthood. I guess the pro-choicers can say Casey should be found innocent because in essence she did the same thing an abortion does except she waited two years to carry out the execution. What? Is it different because the child had a name? What if we personified and named all the unborn children? Would that make a difference? The pro-choicer’s shouldn’t be upset with Casey for killing Caylee. She just ‘’chose’’ she didn’t want her anymore right? 58 million moms have done the same thing since the implementation of Roe vs. Wade; the biggest child death sentence of all. Although those children didn’t have duct tape put around their mouth like little Caylee, they all, like Caylee, were discarded like trash.
