Double standard

There is such a double standard in our society today…people are outraged (and quite rightly so) at an occurrence of a live baby being thrown out in the trash after a botched abortion in Florida (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,488644,00.html). This is horrible, there is no denying it. My heart hurts when thinking about the little baby dying because it couldn’t breathe and bleeding through the umbilical cord that was cut but not clamped.

What does not make any sense to me is that they are so outraged at this, and yet if the baby had been murdered just minutes before–before it was taken out of the mother’s womb–it would not have been offensive.

Tell me how that makes any sense at all?
