WV Babies Lack Human Rights

leave a comment »

In response to Sen. Obama’s answer to the question, “When do babies receive human rights,” President and General Counsel Jeremiah G. Dys, Esq. points out that, in West Virginia, the answer may be never.  

From today’s Charleston Gazette:

No one should be allowed to decide whether one innocent life is worth more than another. Not someone as poor as a college student or as powerful as a United States senator.

Jill Stanek, a nurse-turned-blogger, can describe this in real terms. She should know. If you go to her Web site, you can hear her tell of how she held a discarded Down Syndrome baby for 45 minutes as the child lay dying in her arms, the baby’s undeveloped lungs finally succumbing to an intended demise.

But this is as personal for you as it is for Ms. Stanek, because West Virginia law permits this passive infanticide.
