WINDSOR, ON, June 24 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Luchona Pierce was sentenced to two years in prison for killing her 21-month-old son. According to court reports, the child was asphyxiated when his mother placed a bag over his head. After that, the mother placed him face down in the bathtub to simulate drowning.
Pro-life observers note that the dramatic rise in infants being killed by parents are a testimony to the devaluation of life caused by abortion. Last week Statistics Canada reported an unprecedented increase in the number of infants killed by their parents over the last ten years. Commenting on the situation, Mary-Ellen Douglas, a mother of five and the president of Campaign Life Coalition Ontario, told LifeSite, “if we don’t teach parents to respect the life of their children for the nine months in the womb how can we expect them to respect that same life a few hours, days, or weeks later?”
