Pagan societies embraced abortion and infanticide; Christians abolished the practice; until recently

"Unless we learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it" is a quote I often put on the blackboard when teaching high school history. It seems that some Christians Churches have trouble remembering that what set Christianity apart from brutal pagan Rome was a respect for life and abhorrance for abortion, human sacrifice, and infantacide. Until recently.
It seems we're back to the days of the Roman Circus bloodbaths in our movies, and actualy killing in our medical centers. May God have mercy on this society.
