Aboard the missing Malaysian plane are 2 infants, but apparently that’s irrelevant to some feminists

The mystery of the missing Malaysian jet has the world transfixed.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 departed from Kuala Lumpur, with a destination of Beijing, China, on March 8th.  Not long after the plane took off, it disappeared. 12 countries are currently participating in the search-and-rescue effort, and theories abound as to what happened to the plane.

Two Iranian passengers were on board carrying stolen passports, but the Malaysian military is skeptical that this was a terrorist attack.

The latest developments found that the jet headed north towards Beijing before suddenly turning around and flew hundreds of miles in the opposite direction. Officials have seemingly ruled out that the plane blew up mid-air, so was there an equipment malfunction? Did it crash into the ocean? Or was it a terrorist attack? No one knows yet.

227 passengers were on board the craft, along with 12 crewmembers. The majority of the passengers were Chinese, although the nationalities of the passengers varied greatly: Americans, Canadians, Australians, French, Ukrainian, Russian, etc.

Reportedly, there were two infants on board. This is something that is heartbreaking for the average person.  After all, not many people can think of helpless, vulnerable infants killed tragically, no matter what happened to this plane, and not feel saddened.

Editor-in-chief of abortion advocacy site RH Reality Check, Jodi Jacobson, is apparently not most people. She just doesn’t understand what all the fuss is about.

When blogger Jill Stanek called Jacobson out for being so cold and callous, Jacobson just couldn’t understand what the problem was.

The deaths of 239 people is unbelievably tragic. It’s why this story has captured the attention of people around the world. However, the deaths of children, and especially infants, tend to be even more tragic and heartbreaking. Why? When we hear of a murdered adult vs. a murdered toddler or baby, the death of the child is almost always infinitely more difficult to hear about. A starving child is much more affecting than a starving adult. Why?

Well, for most people, it’s simple. Most of us feel an inherent need to protect and defend infants and children, as they are completely dependent upon adults for everything — for shelter, clothing, and food, but also for safety.

It’s why many iconic photographs of children in disasters, such as the firefighter carrying the child out of the Oklahoma City Bombing, resonate so deeply with people. There is, for most people, an instinctive need to protect those among us who are weaker.  A child, and especially an infant, who dies a tragic death is more painful.  We weren’t able to protect them, and they were robbed of the chance to live their lives, still waiting ahead of them, their dreams and their destinies never to be realized.

It is heartbreaking to think of… except for someone like Jacobson.  Jacobson just cannot understand why everyone finds these two babies so important.  Jacobson just doesn’t see what the big deal is.  She’s completely oblivious to just how callous and warped that mindset is, and even doubled down when challenged.

Is it because abortion has desensitized her to the thought of the deaths of babies? It doesn’t exactly seem unexpected that the editor-in-chief of a website that devotes itself almost entirely to defending abortion would be offended at the thought of people mourning the deaths of these two infants. It seems that this mindset, so cold and indifferent, often inadvertently comes out among pro-abortion advocates like Jacobsen though. After all, if you spend your time fighting for the right of mothers to kill their children, it’s bound to affect your point of view on everything else. And if the deaths of unborn babies don’t bother you, then why should the tragic deaths of those already born?

The only difference between the unborn and the born is geography.
