OBSERVATION: Irony within tragedy.
It was reported that Danny Platt (right), of New Orleans, killed his two year old son because he didn't want to pay court ordered child support. I mean, you can't just go around killing your kid because he is an economic inconvience, right? Unless, of course, you call it an abortion. Maybe Platt just saw this as sort of a late term abortion -- just a little later than most. The point is ... once you start devaluing life as a sacred and social treasure to be perserved at almost all costs, you can get a lot of ugly unintended consequences. Killing kids is just not right -- after or before they leave what should be the protective womb of the mother.
