University of Melbourne ‘Ethicists’ Call for Legalized Murder of Newborns

February 28th, 2012

Via: Journal of Medical Ethics:

Abortion is largely accepted even for reasons that do not have anything to do with the fetus’ health. By showing that (1) both fetuses and newborns do not have the same moral status as actual persons, (2) the fact that both are potential persons is morally irrelevant and (3) adoption is not always in the best interest of actual people, the authors argue that what we call ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn) should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.

  1. pessimistic optimist Says:

    the modern practice of not killing unwanted infants is relatively new from what i understand. in 1800 foundling hospitals had an 80-90% mortality rate within the first year for anonymous infants left in drop boxes. like chris hedges says, transforming the state into a “oligarchic neo-feudalism” more in line w/ nwo doctrine.

    funny its brits and aussies, 2 of the most masonic nations.
    “killuminati” indeed

    The fallacy of the beard.

    An argument using the same faulty reasoning could equally be made against abortion if you start at the other end of human development.
