"They served their idols, which became a snare to them. They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons; they poured out innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was polluted with blood." Psalm 106:36-38

History is replete with civilizations which have held morally repugnant attitudes concerning infants and children. Exposing an unwanted child to the elements was a common practice throughout the Roman Empire. The Nazis carried Jewish children off to the killing fields or the gas chambers. The Aztecs and Mayans sacrificed their children to their pagan gods. Perhaps the most infamous example from the ancient world are the Carthaginians of North Africa, who inherited their barbaric practices of child sacrifice from their ancestors in Canaan/Phoenicia.

American's call it a women' right to choose.

  1. Yes, but the only "choice" allowed is abortion. Yep, just like the pagans of old, sacrificing our children on the altar of self.

  2. Yes, abortion is the convenient "choice" of our day.

    We live in such sad times - my heart grieves for the lost among - so many lost - so little time. May G-d give us a heart to pray for those that do not know our L-RD.
