Impediments to the means of production! Ping.
We're still doing it here in the United States. If a baby is "accidentally" born during an abortion, and if the "mother" doesn't want the baby, hospitals are allowed to kill it by exposure or disposal in medical waste bins.
There is NO ATTEMPT TO GIVE IT TO THE FATHER, THE FAMILY OF THE BABY, OR TO AN ORPHANAGE. It is, in the words of the liberals, an obligate parasite.
Our POS in our White House is in full approval of this. And, it's done with tax payers' dollars.
And we are feebly trying to stop this carnage in congress. God forgive us.
[DISCLAIMER: I Cut & Paste] (This is already happening in the Netherlands, where infanticidewhile technically murderis so widely accepted that Dutch doctors who euthanize babies published the Groningen Protocol, a bureaucratic infanticide checklist for use in deciding which babies can be ethically euthanized.
[AND] Peter Singer made that very point in Practical Ethics:
Regarding newborn infants as replaceable, as we now regard fetuses, would have considerable advantages over prenatal diagnosis followed by abortion. Prenatal diagnosis still cannot detect major disabilities. . . . At present, parents can choose to keep or destroy their disabled offspring only if the disability happens to be detected during pregnancy. There is no logical basis for restricting parents choice to these particular disabilities. If disabled newborn infants were not regarded as having a right to life until, say, a week or a month after birth it would allow parents, in consultation with their doctors, to choose on the basis of far greater knowledge of the infants condition than is possible before birth.
I would think that childbirth was far more dangerous back in those days. Given that the Roman’s were well versed in poisons, etc., I’m sure there were those who tried to chemically abort.
So what are they impplying? Shall we start the practice up again, it was so great?
It’s sure convenient for the living to advocate policies to kill the yet to be born. Or those close to the end of life for that matter.
That is the pagan Roman Empire (like the one led by the secular US today) NOT the glorious Christian one after Constantine the Great
“Infanticide, the killing of unwanted babies, was common throughout the Roman Empire and other parts of the ancient world, according to a new study.”
Unlike us, they were pagans who didn’t believe in Judaeo-Christian principles.
IIRC, however, it was the prerogative of the father and generally done by taking the child out to a remote location and exposing it to the elements/wildlife.
