Rabbi Daniel Lapin comments on Chinese Infanticide
Government officials in China take
a healthy baby and drown it in front of the parents. The story was
reported in European newspapers, including
the London Times.
Surprisingly, this murder has received
no attention from the US news media, electronic or print. Full Story.
We, at RFFM, wonder how American
journalists can ignore such a gruesome incident.
In communications with R. L. Richter, RFFM
- Seattle, Rabbi Daniel Lapin states " The majority of the media in
America is pro-abortion. Partial-birth abortion is so closely linked to
infanticide (killing of babies) that reporters are just unwilling to
recognize it as murder and will not report it. Their refusal to confront
this issue is further evidence that some journalists are willing to give
up professional integrity in favor of their personal politics. In
the case of the drowning in China, we are not aware of any major US
newspapers or networks willing to take this issue on."
Is it possible that this incident may
cause some journalists to rethink this issue or are they willing to turn
their backs on infanticide for political purposes? I truly hope the later
is not the case.
Rabbi Lapin is not an official of RFFM
but was kind enough to make time available on this issue.
Thank You Rabbi Lapin
