It’s a Good Idea to Kill Babies, Right?

Two ‘medical ethicists’ recently published a paper in the Journal of Medical Ethics saying that it’s okay to kill babies after they are born. No, this is not satire. They are serious. The abstract reads,

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.

Everyone is outraged, of course except the ethicists and their editor.

You can read more about it on the Telegraph here:

First, they came for the fetuses, but I did not speak because I was not a fetus….

    1. Apparently, this isn’t even a new thing. It’s just getting into the public eye. We’ve been telling atheists that without God there is no good or evil and it seems they’re starting to believe us.
