Ethicists: Killing Newborn Babies Should Be Allowed

Published:

Last Edited: February 29, 2012, 1:30 am

'Couldn't get all wound up about that case in Florida because the case wasn't really about the nature of the act, just the timing -- the end result is the same.

If a kid is inconvenient to the mother, or the (purported) father is deemed to not be a worthy wallet-target, the matter is a woman's body & choice. Worthy wallet-targets are hit with the "takes two to tango" line (even though , on average, nearly 30% are not even at the tango).

Now, on to the latest outrage-in-the-works against men (don't think you'll have any say against it).

Published in the Journal of Medical Ethics.

After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?

Abstract
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.

Regardless of what the "ethicists" say, killing a newborn child is murder, not abortion. This only shows what little ethics they have in pushing their Nazi-inspired eugenics agenda.

What the f*** is wrong with people, when did we become a society where killing new borns is even discussed.

Yep, seen it coming. Start with the unborn and advance to the living.
Big controversy about death panels in health care bill too. Start with denial of care and advance from there.

Incrementalism. Abortion in the first trimester. Then the second trimester. Then the third trimester. Then partial birth abortion. Then the killing of botched abortion babies. Then Infanticide.

When the democrats are through, we'll all have to be tested to justify that our lives are worth living and meet government standards for the efficient use of crops and water. Some slimy, Harry Reid looking weasel from the government will decide your fate.

No joke. Obama's Czars are chomping at the bit.

My old philosophy teacher's pet argument against abortion was "why not wait until the baby is five years old and then kill it". Bet he has no idea how far it's come today, if he's still alive that is.
