How to murder a child..

For as long as I can remember, we've been told that it is un-Islamic to have an abortion. Proof? 

Well they quote the Qur'an: "وإذا الموؤودة سئلت . بأي ذنب قتلت" (سورة التكوير 8-9
"When the female (infant), buried alive, is questioned - For what crime she was killed;" (81:8-9)

"لاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَوْلادَكُمْ خَشْيَةَ إِمْلاقٍ نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُهُمْ وَإِيَّاكُم إِنَّ قَتْلَهُمْ كَانَ خِطْءًا كَبِيرًا" (الإسراء : 17
"Kill not your children for fear of want: We shall provide sustenance for them as well as for you. Verily the killing of them is a great sin." (17:31)

"وَلاَ تَقْتُلُواْ أَوْلادَكُم مِّنْ إِمْلاقٍ نَّحْنُ نَرْزُقُكُمْ وَإِيَّاهُمْ" (الأنعام 151
"kill not your children on a plea of want;- We provide sustenance for you and for them;" (6:151)

Apparently, all of the above means a woman cannot have an abortion. Did abortion exist in 600 AD? Yes it did? Did it have a name at the time? I am positive it did? Did the Qur'an mention it by its name and say it is forbidden? ... Ermmm.. 

So, scholars say - all male of course, who have never experienced pregnancy and never will - that an abortion is akin to killing of a child. That abortion is murder, even if it was done because of a fear that the parents would not be able to provide it with a good life.

Why? Because God will provide, of course, silly! You don't have to plan. You don't have to calculate. You don't have to think and be responsible for your actions as an adult who is responsible for a family. No no no, you must live on faith that God will provide.

That is why there have never been any child deaths caused by hunger or health issues related to malnutrition. Ever!   Please DO NOT look at this link: God will provide

So, what is the ideal method of murdering a child without using conventional ways, like a knide, a gun.. or abortion?

Well, first you bring your sixth or 9th child to the world by choosing not to abort it. You have a job which pays you $1 per day, and you have no sanitation nor medical aid. You think: God will provide. The child could die in the first few days because the birth was so difficult and there was no medical assistance. It could die of a simple respiratory illness because you can not afford medicine or medical care. It could die of malnutrition, since its mother is so under nourished and can't breastfeed it properly. It could die of any disease, or an injury as a result of poor conditions in poor communities.

Or worse, it could survive in wretched conditions, hungry, sick, afraid and miserable, having to fight with everyone for the next mouthful. Only to die young as it happens all too  many times, according to the link I warned you not to read.

This is all better than an abortion, of course. Much much more decent and Islamic.
