Children Cramp Our Style Says George Jonas

George Jonas, National Post columnist, Canadian journalist, novelist, playwright, and poet crafts a subtle, and not so subtle, expose of child-killing.

Entitled "Children cramp our style," here's a sampling.
As I've written before, I'm not necessarily opposed to abortion, but then I'm not necessarily opposed to killing. Doing away with children can be a salutary act under a variety of circumstances, as anyone who has had experience with children can attest.

I could even be persuaded that we should let the mother be the arbiter of when to kill a child. King Solomon thought so; in fact, his reputation for wisdom rests upon this belief. True, Solomon also thought that no mother would lightly kill her child. He had the fixed idea that an authentic mother would rather give up her child than kill it, in which the good king might have been a trifle too optimistic.
