An Aspen Hill, Md. Mother of two, Kristin Petrie, has been charged with attempted first degree murder, first degree child abuse, and second degree child abuse against her 11 year old Autistic son.

As reported by ABC7 News,

“According to the criminal charging affidavit, Petrie raised the razor-sharp saw and chased after her son, eventually pinning him down in a kneeling position. The 46-year-old then allegedly “jammed” the teeth of the saw against the back of her son’s neck, “moving it back and forth multiple times.” The boy screamed, fearing his 5-foot-6, 175-pound mother was about to behead him. Somehow the child escaped, grabbing hold of the bow saw in the process. Petrie allegedly called her husband and confessed to attacking their eldest child.”


Fortunately, the young boy survived the would-be decapitation with a bow saw and got away from his attacker of a mother.

Her rationale for wanting to murder her children? She was “overwhelmed” with their autism and felt they would become a “burden on society”.

We’ve heard similar arguments before from Pro-Choice advocates. Especially in Iceland where they have eradicated all children with Down Syndrome. According to CBS News,

“the vast majority of women — close to 100 percent — who received a positive test for Down syndrome terminated their pregnancy.”

Doesn’t this mother have a right to choose what she can do with her body? To hold and wield a bow saw and end of the life of her children so they burden her no longer?

My point being, immorality doesn’t fade away whether these children were already born or not. Thank God these boys are okay. One can only hope that their mother gets the treatment and help she needs. Meanwhile, the left needs a new argument for their support of Abortion besides convenience.
