Infanticide, or the practice of killing newborn infants who are somehow considered less than perfect, has been a consequence of the legalization of abortion on demand in 1973. Infanticide was widely practiced before it was known to the public. Primarily, it was a consequence of a failed abortion, but so callous had the practitioners of abortion become that a practice called "live birth abortion" was developed. Here abortion was induced before the child was considered viable. The premature infant was born and merely left unattended to die struggling for each breath. Nurse Jill Stanek became aware of the practice at Christ Hospital in Indiana when a nursse handed her a dying child. Ms. Stanek could not bear to let this child die alone in a Soiled Utility room and so rocked him for the forty five minutes he lived. Read her testimony at Testimony of Jill Stanek

Attorney John W. Whitehead provides this definition of infanticide: “Infanticide is the killing of a born child. It is killing whether it is accomplished by a direct act, or whether the child is allowed to die by indirect action such as refusing to feed him or her.”
Infanticide (killing of newly born children), also called neonaticide, follows abortion like night follows day. C. Everett Koop and Francis A. Schaeffer warned of this in their book, WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE HUMAN RACE?
Just three months after Roe v. Wade, Nobel Prize winner James Watson, who cracked the genetic code, wrote:
Because of the present limits of such detection methods, most birth defects are not discovered until birth.
If a child were not declared alive until three days after birth, then all parents could be allowed the choice...the doctor could allow the child to die if the parents so choose and save a lot of misery and suffering.
James Watson "Children from the Laboratory," AMA Prism, Ch. 3, p. 2, May 1973
I hope most Americans would find this practice unthinkable. Even more outrageous is the opinion of some of Watson’s colleagues. They disagree with him because they believe the time period to be too short! They think it should be thirty days!
One cannot devalue the life of one class of people, the unborn, without devaluing all human life.
