Francis Schaeffer was right

Russian journalist calls for infanticide

I'm taking Wesley Smith's word for this, as I don't have the stomach to follow the links - and I suggest you take care if you do follow them.

It seems the journalist's "sin" was not in calling for infanticide, but in using, ahem, hateful language in doing so. If you are a Dutch doctor writing about your country's infanticide protocol in measured, technical language, you get published in the NEJM. If you are an ethicist, you get an endowed chair at Princeton.

And, while I'm at it, might I suggest you purchase a copy of Smith's book, A Rat is a Pig is a Dog is a Boy when it becomes available next week? Surprisingly (at least to me), the forward is by novelist Dean Koontz.
