Regret to bring up an uncomfortable subject

Slaying the little ones has a long, ugly history.  Usually it’s about killing off hope, which was certainly true when the Egyptians killed the firstborn of Israel or when Herod slew the innocents near Bethlehem.  Sometimes it’s about greed, as when the Canaanite cults sacrificed their children in a vain attempt to improve the harvest.

Sometimes it’s just sheer selfishness, as when the Romans left unwanted infants lying by the seashore waiting for the tide to make the problem disappear.  What’s your motive, America?
