The Slaughter of the Innocents, a poem about partial-birth abortion, on the day the Supreme Court decided to hear partial-birth abortion ban case....

Readers, I thought I was finished posting for today, but I just heard this exciting and important news that you will be able to read about in our article posted below just a few minutes ago.

Included here is a poem that expresses the horror of what has come to be called "partial-birth abortion." You can decide for yourselves what you believe it is....

"Slaughter of the Innocents"

What's this emerging?
Small shock of fine hair
lies in moistened curls
as life reaches forth.
Beware the cold stare
of one poised to seize
on defenseless babe,
to rend its lifeblood
and extract essence
that long since began.
For nascent kittens,
liberal hearts bleed;
no tears do they shed
for humankind's own
intact vital soul
proceeding into
another life-stage.
Who stands to safeguard
this viable child,
to hold and to keep
in strong loving arms?
And, who will forbid
the birthing murders,
where slaughtering hands
slay the innocents?
