Sin has corrupted all of creation, not just humanity. And so even a species that carries their unborn for almost two years’ gestation can turn against their newborns. Sad.

It would not be so; tragedies like these would still happen in our absence. Only when Christ returns, will nature be restored to perfection, and will there be peace between all peoples, as it is written.
