This is horrifying! Justifying the killing of two babies simply because they weren't the GENDER she wanted?! That's, it's, well... beyond words.

I still feel sick over this story (being Australian, I read this story when it first came out). All I can see in my mine's eye, are 2 precious little boys lying side by side, just like in my job where my greatest privelege is taking care of twin boys (I work in NICU). Breaks my heart how disposable the children are. Personally I think they need to watch how she is with her living boys. If she is so physchologically distraut that she would do this, then her other children or any subsequent children need to be monitored.
Really I would have taken those boys in a heartbeat. But I guess that is not the topic here.

That is very, very sad. It does sound like this lady has mental health issues... she never can replace her daughter and it seems like she thinks she can...

Laura

Although this is a horrible story, the Mother's heartbreak is clearly the reason why. It just goes to show how much Jesus' love is needed in this world to heal, mend and repair.

I read this in the wake of news that a dear woman who was fostering a son--lost him after 3 months of caring for him. They are calling the death SIDS. She and those who know her are grieving this loss. She loved and cared and took wonderful care of this little one. She is a believer and her close family as well. In my mind, where does the justice come in for a mom who cannot conceive and still loses a baby to unexplained health issues. And then a mother, who has been blessed to doubly blessed to replace a traumatic loss---but WRONG GENDER, and then, decides to take their lives because of a sinful obession! "Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts." Prov 21:2
"In those days there was no king in Israel, but every man did that which was right in his own eyes." Judges 17:6, Judges 18:1, Judges 19:1, Judges 21:25. And yet.... "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9 and
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16 and "The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation" Numbers 14:18. Oh God, that Your unfailing Grace would reach the souls of this couple, that You Wisdom would open their eyes to their sin of murder, and You would bind the evil one from anymore precious young lives. Lord, I know those babies are with you, but Lord, the method is sin--hateful, disgusting sin that does not bring You glory. Lord, give us a fire to preserve Your the crowning moment of Your Creation--LIFE!! I apologize for the length of this comment, but it is so important!
