It seems as though every few weeks the monsters at ISIS seek (and find) new ways to disgust the rest of the world. Whether it’s torture, rape or murder – the ISIS thugs seem to take copious amounts of pleasure in their nefarious dealings. They use the disgusting deeds as fodder for their propaganda and each new act of depravity seems to earn them more followers from the Muslim world.
The latest turn of events has me as sickened as any of the previous ones. ISIS has long searched for the weakest among their own to make examples of their utterly depraved nature, but this newest wrinkle in their evil seems designed to drive a dagger straight into the heart of the West.
Sharia judges have apparently ruled that ISIS followers are authorized to ‘kill newborn babies with Down’s Syndrome or congenital deformities and disabled children’ in their latest sickening act.
More than 38 children born with deformities and Down’s syndrome, aged between one week and three months, have already been killed by lethal injection or suffocation, according to Iraqi activist group Mosul Eye.
Western news outlets are just beginning to report on this horrific turn of events, but Mosul Eye says that ISIS has indeed begun to act out Nazi fantasies of cleansing their population.
“Through monitoring and following the death incidents of children with Down’s Syndrome and congenital deformities, we were able to learn that the Shar’i Board of ISIL issued an ‘Oral Fatwa’ to its members authorising them to ‘kill newborn babies with Down’s Syndrome and congenital deformities and disabled children’.
‘As if it is not enough for ISIL to kill men, women and the elderly, and now, they kill children.’
If true, it means ISIS has followed the same direction as the Nazis, who killed disabled children because they deemed them to be a ‘burden on the state’.”
While many of us will no doubt find this shocking, I am forced to remind our readers that American liberals have long been engaged in a similar practice. For years the medical industry has been perfecting method of detecting deformities and “abnormalities” in children still in their mothers womb, and those tests have helped to weed out things like Down’s Syndrome.
As still more sophisticated blood tests currently on the horizon will allow for noninvasive screening during the first trimester of pregnancy (as opposed to the current, invasive tests such as amniocentesis that are administered well after a woman’s pregnancy has become physically obvious to others), Skotko notes that more and more women will likely opt to terminate pregnancies upon learning their babies will have DS. As it stands, he says, 92 percent of women who learn they are carrying babies with DS opt to abort.
While liberals will likely see a difference between what ISIS is doing and what the abortion industry is doing, I certainly don’t.
How can we in the West maintain the moral high ground when we are engaged in the same practices as these monsters in ISIS? The answer is, we cannot. What ISIS is doing is disgusting, deplorable and we should do our very best to put an end to it. But what we are allowing abortion-defending liberals to do is similarly heinous and we should fight to end their work as well.
