Celebrating a Holocaust?
The Weekend Argus (03 February 07) Life section included an article “10,000 Abortions a Week in the first decade!” as a cause for “victory and celebration.” Correspondent Sherree Roussow described the legislation enacted by Nelson Mandela on 1 February 1997 as “the most liberal abortion laws in the world.”
The article declared the abortion legislation introduced in South Africa 10 years ago: “the most amazing victory for women. It’s a celebration…”!!
This seems to be a bizarre perspective on a tragic situation. I would not have thought that poisoning, dismembering or strangling little babies in the womb was any cause for celebration!
