Infanticide may be widespread in a society or happen only occasionally, but it has few, if any, exceptions with one class of infants, that is, deformed infants.
Laila Williamson as quoted in Infanticide and the Handicapped Newborn, edited by Dennis Horan and Melinda Delahoyde, p. 3.
As you can see, one thing has changed significantly in the 30 years since this book was written. We rarely speak of infants as ‘deformed’ any longer, and the word handicapped has also been replaced by other words.
But the war against our babies with disabilities continues, just as it has for centuries. We must persevere.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 ESV)
