Advocates for infanticide astounded that people want them to die.

Although the authors (Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva) apparently prefer the term ‘after-birth abortion.’  Seems that calling it that helps distract one from the thought that you’re on the record for advocating no-fooling baby killing. Anyway…

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.

…It takes a lot of gall to lecture a bunch of people about civility after you defecate all over their moral beliefs and call it a justification for infanticide, but it would seem that the Journal for Medical Ethics is up to the challenge. Maybe they should understand why people are angry? – Oh, wait, my bad. That courtesy is reserved exclusively for people who throw gay people off of buildings.

PS: I have read the article, actually.  The moral cowardice of the authors of it is something to behold, the more so because their argument can and should have acted as a powerful indictment of most abortion procedures. Particularly the ones that stem from, frankly, a misconception of what the word ‘convenience’ means.

    What, you mean like post-partum abortions of Pre-Persons isn’t a good thing? Bummer, man!

  • Herp McDerp says:

    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”.
     
    I believe the technical term for this among medical ethicists of the caliber of Giubilini and Minerva used to be “Lebensunwertes Leben” …

    Eugenics has a long and prominent place in progy policies . Recall The Great Oliver Wendell Holmes ” Three generations of idiots is enough ” . And good old Margeret Sanger when she wasn’t preaching birth control and abortion was way deep into so called genetic hygiene .

      how many generations of Kennedys have there been? Bushes? Clintons? mayhap it’s time?

      and as far as the article, possibly they would be candidates…

    A newborn at least has POTENTIAL value.

    Unlike far too many expensively educated social scientists.
