A Murder in Red China

"Family Planning officials decided Xiao Ai Ying, eight months into her pregnancy, had violated China's one-child policy and forced her to have an abortion," reports Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan, noting that she "was dragged kicking and screaming out of her own home by authorities" — An illegal pregnancy and a legal abortion.

Of course, many of those outraged by this see no problem with a mother's "choice" to drag her eight-month-old fetus "kicking and screaming" to an abortuary. We are shocked by something as commonplace historically as the State murdering one of its citizens, but take something as absurd and horrific as a mother murdering her own child for granted.

Yes, a mother killing her own child is worse.
