2007 November: Parents Who Kill Their Children

This month’s theme will be “Parents Who Kill Their Children”, which, unfortunately, seems to be a growing issue. Almost everyday you hear of another case, whether it be deliberate murder or neglect. You know the old saying “You need a license to own a dog or drive a car, but ANYONE can be a parent”. Scary sometimes, huh? However, there is also the flip-side to this. Due to all the abuse claims and murder, too many parents are being accused of abuse or even murder when there is no cause for it. I don’t know how to solve this problem myself, but we need to be more careful in dealing with these issues. We don’t want to accuse an innocent family of neglect or abuse, but then again, we do not want an abusive situation to ever continue. Abuse in any form should not be tolerated.

  6. Morgan,

  7. Jesus said that the devil is a murderer.the very same SPIRIT that causes a women to take her little baby to a abortion clinic is the same spirit that causes a women kill her older child.murder is murder.read psalms 9;17 in the bible.it says the wicked shall be cast into hell and all nations that forget GOD.where athiest or agnostics rule a country like russia,china,or the usa they throw out all sembelence of love for human life.weve killed one third of the total population by abortion.then the same people who promote this destruction make more laws to save lives,how foolish.


  8. Just to let you know about the Brianna Lopez case. Stephanie and Steven Lopez are twin brother and sister, Andrew Walters is the father.
