But indications suggest that may be changing

Kansas City, MO — A 20-year old McDonald’s employee attempted to flush her newborn baby down the toilet at the Kansas City restaurant where she worked after she unexpectedly gave birth to a 32-week baby boy on Monday.
She told shocked co-workers that she had “flushed three times but that it would not go down.”
Fortunately, paramedics arrived in time to resuscitate the baby, who was discovered face down in the toilet water not breathing and without a pulse. The little boy is doing well and expected to recover completely.
It is possible that the woman could face criminal charges for attempting to harm her baby – but then again, she may not.
This is evidence of a society that continues to be unconcerned about the criminal activity of Dr. George Tiller – a Wichita, Kansas abortionist who continues to perform illegal late term abortions on viable babies — babies similar in age to the victim in the McDonalds incident.
Take the example of a woman named Kelly, who told the story of her abortion on The O’Reilly Factor news program last December. Kelly’s abortion took place at Tiller’s infamous late-term abortion mill in Wichita at 20 weeks. She was sent into premature labor then taken to a room to deliver her dead child.
“In this other room there is basically a toilet, and they told me to sit on the toilet, lean on the nurse and push — push my baby into a toilet,” Kelly told a national television audience.
When asked what happened to the baby’s body she replied, “I have no idea. I left my baby dead in a toilet.” (Click here to view Kelly’s entire interview.)
So perhaps we should not be shocked by today’s headline of a woman who did the same thing to her baby in a McDonalds restroom stall. Life doesn’t seem to mean as much to people as it once did, when an attempted cold, callous murder of a newborn infant would have stirred public outrage and, without question, merited a long prison term.
There is some evidence, however, that the hearts of people are beginning to stir, and there are some indications that attitudes may be changing about the acceptance of late abortions. This is true particularly in Kansas, where Tiller is facing 19 years in jail for committing illegal late-term abortions on viable babies, some about as old as the young McDonald’s worker’s son. An interim committee of the Kansas Legislature will convene on Friday to consider late-abortions and their impact on Kansas and the nation.
Maybe, just maybe, this Midwestern state will just say no to killing babies in the later stages of pregnancy and aggressively enforce their existing laws banning abortions after viability. This would send a message to our nation’s calloused conscience that pre-born babies have infinitely greater value than the contents of a toilet bowl.
“The law is not there simply to punish wrong-doing. It is there to teach and train people the difference between right and wrong. Our laws have let us down when it comes to protecting innocent children in the womb – but that can change,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who has spent the past five years publicly exposing Tiller’s late-term abortion business.
“Kansas can set an example that will help teach people the value of life,” said Newman. But one thing is sure. If we continue to embrace abortion as a nation, we can only expect to see more toilet babies. That is a tragedy that we, as a society, cannot continue to bear.”
