Parents should be allowed to have their newborn babies killed because they are “morally irrelevant” and ending their lives is no different to abortion, a group of medical ethicists linked to Oxford University has argued.
Eugenics is alive and well but moral ethics are dead.
Anyone who has had a baby or worse yet, lost a baby, knows that the premise of these “experts” is far from the truth and it is pure evil.
Educated people who advocate for the killing of newborns (after-birth abortion) and then publish it shows us how far into the depths of corrupt thought our learned intellectuals have sunk. If there is a lesson here, besides the obvious one of collateral damage from abortion, it is that education and intelligence are no guarantee of moral character.
Our President argued for after-birth abortion on the floor of the state Senate of Illinois.
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.
The article published in the Journal of Medical Ethics, says newborn babies are not “actual persons” and do not have a “moral right to life”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born.
The journal’s editor, Prof Julian Savulescu, director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, said the article’s authors had received death threats since publishing the article. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”.
The article, entitled “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?”, was written by two of Prof Savulescu’s former associates, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva…Read here: Telegraph
