"The Catholic Encyclopedia estimates that given the population of Bethlehem at the time, Herod probably killed several dozen children. In the United States, abortion kills about 3 children per minute, so we probably kill an equal number of “Innocents” every 15-20 minutes. On Guam, we do that every 40 days or so. And history casts Herod as a monster?"

This is a column I wrote for the Umatuna (the newspaper for the Archdiocese of Agana) for publication on Christmas Day in 2011. While 11 years later we can celebrate the overturn of Roe v Wade, the fact is that there are now many "New Herods" lurking in the halls of government in the states and territories who can now enact laws to slaughter innocents anew.
