The world wept yesterday as news of a baby elephant almost getting trampled to death grabbed international headlines. But some of the same people saddened by the news shed no tears over the deaths of unborn children from abortion.

As the London Daily Mail reported:

Horrified zookeepers were forced to intervene after a female elephant attempted to stamp her calf to death shortly after he was born.

The female elephant had stepped on baby Zhuangzhuang almost immediately after giving birth at a Chinese zoo on August 30.

But vets initially thought it was an accident. They removed the calf to treat his injuries and returned him to his mother two hours later – but she started to stamp on him again.

Keepers drove her off and took the little elephant away.

The rejected calf then reportedly cried for five hours as staff at the Shendiaoshan Wild Animal Natural Reserve Area, in Rongcheng, Shandong province, tried to comfort him.

He is now making good progress and has been adopted by a keeper.



The pro-life group Pro-Life America noticed the contradiction in thinking about people’s reaction to the story and their lack of emotion over the rejection of unborn children in abortion.

“Baby elephant rejected by mom weeps and makes news headline! Human babies rejected by moms for #abortion no MSM headline,” it said.
