That Was Then - Unfortunately It Is Now As Well

Abortion in Roman Britain?
by Brian Saint-Paul

It's tempting to romanticize the ancients, but stories like this remind us why we should not. Archaeologists in central England have been reviewing a mass burial site of 97 infants on the property of a Roman villa, and have come to an awful conclusion:
Archaeologist Dr Jill Eyers said: "The only explanation you keep coming back to is that it's got to be a brothel."
With little or no effective contraception, unwanted pregnancies could have been common at Roman brothels, explained Dr Eyers, who works for Chiltern Archaeology.
The victims were all newborn infants in their 40th week of gestation. At least some of the bones have cut marks.
These days it would probably be the garbage dumpster outside a planned parenthood where they would find the remains of a huge number of babies. OK, this was probably infanticide, not abortions, but with the attitude of children being disposable these days as well & with the way so-called ethicists like Peter Singer want us to go, this is scenario could very well be from today not 1600+ years ago.

    Thanks for posting this. There is such a romanticized version of classical paganism these days that, unless you look for the information yourself, you will rarely come across such data on pagan barbarity. But, of course, the pagan barbarianism of today is murdering children in the womb and, like the child killing pagans of old, offering up their evil to the false god Moloch.
