LSN: Robert Latimer, who killed his disabled daughter, says he’d do it again


VICTORIA, BC, Fri Feb 18, 2011 ( - Robert Latimer, who was convicted of second-degree murder for killing his disabled daughter Tracy, says he has no regrets about the murder and in retrospect would do it again.

In an interview with Radio-Canada, the CBC’s French language service, Latimer said, “I know I was right,” to kill 12-year-old Tracy, who suffered from cerebral palsy.

"I know I was right, I did it to stop the pain", that is the refrain of the culture of death, who believe the twisted notion that mercy and compassion can be expressed through killing.  Robert Latimer expresses the fruits of this twisted idea; a man puts his daughter in his truck and suffocates her to death with the exhaust and dares to call it an act of love. 

And then he has the nerve to attack those who condemned his murder of his daughter as "sadistic butchers".  Mr. Latimer, you suffocated your daughter, and we're the butchers?  Cast forth the beam from thine own eye, my friend. 

Latimer's actions are all the more reason why we need to build a culture of life.  Unless human life has value again, we will continue to see horrible acts such as the murder of little Tracy.  And you can be sure that this "arrogant, self-righteous, religious-backed" person will be praying for that, along with Robert Latimer's soul.

Pax Christi.
