God has always condemned Government slaughter of babies: (1 The Egyptian Pharaoh demanded the death of all male babies, but Israelites “who feared God” refused (Exodus 1:8-22). God made Pharaoh release His people and destroyed Pharaoh and his army (Exodus Chapters 8-15). Pharaoh’s plan was to kill boy babies upon birth! (2 God’s prophet, Elisha, wept at the future actions against Israel by the king of Syria, Hazael, because he would “dash their children, and rip open their women with child” (2 Kings 8:10-13). God brought withering war against Syria (Amos 1:3-5) because Hazael’s plan was to kill all babies before birth! (3 Herod’s slaughter of all male children, aged 2 years old and under, in Bethlehem (Matthew 2:13-22), led to his death shortly thereafter.
