Here's another one for the books! A mother in eastern Pennsylvania was recently sentenced to spend a period of 30 days to 23 months in the Northampton County Prison. And what was her crime? She left her 5-year-old son's teeth rot and 12 of the teeth had to be extracted because they were beyond repair!
The charge was child endangerment to which she pleaded guilty. In addition to the jail time, the mother was sentenced to 3 years probation, do 50 hours of community service, pay a $500 fine, continue mental health treatment and take parenting classes.
A dentist said the boy's teeth had to have been decaying for a period of 2 to 3 years to have reached such an advanced stage which required the dozen teeth to be extracted.
Ah -- a question or two here -- my, aren't we diligent to pick up on those cases which are considered "child endangerment" and the wrath of the law comes down on offenders -- this mother needed to be punished, and maybe that will send a message to others in society -- don't do anything that will endanger our youngsters, right?
Now then, let's drop the other shoe -- how is it that a guy wearing a white coat with his name followed by the initials "M.D." stitched over a pocket can deliberately invade the womb of an expectant mother, and dismember and murder that child within her whom God is forming for a wonderful purpose (see if you can pick up on this in Jeremiah 1:5) and no charges whatsoever are ever brought against that character and others such as he -- you know, these guys in the legalized "butcher shops" where thousands of very young children become victims every week of the year!
Never a charge of "child endangerment" much less premeditated murder is leveled against these people, and yet a mother who lets her son's teeth rot does jail time while "Dr." Somebody (term used loosely) drives his luxury car down the street on his way to do some mutilating and murdering for a few hundred dollars for each victim, adding to his fat bank account!
If you aren't afraid to do so, take a look at some numbers which speak loud and clear about this republic's morally bankrupt condition of the first magnitude -- go to:
