From The Degu Speaks
Double standard for baby-murder
I saw a cbsnews.com story about some awful case in which a woman cut a baby's arms off. A doctor has said that she was out of her mind and does not know right from wrong.

Apparently this is considered a bigger story than the 4,000 other babies who were also butchered that day, done by (ostensibly) sane persons...
From history:
One death is a tragedy. Forty million is a statistic.
- Attributed to Hitler and others

P.S. Schizophrenia doesn’t mean ‘being of two minds on something’ or ‘having more than one personality’ (also an actual mental disorder) but ‘a shattering of the mind’ in which the person hears nonexistent voices and has other hallucinations.
