Skip to comments.Killing babies no different from abortion, experts say

"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."

It was only a matter of time.
I’m suddenly okay with killing “medical ethicist”. *spits*
At least they are following their ideology to its logically consistent outcome. Doesn’t end there, however, because if a one week old baby is ok to kill, how about a one month old, or a one year old? How about a ten year old?
If the baby has no inherent moral value, then when does it get one? I don’t see any special event granting such status that takes place in our lives, so if they were really consistent, then they would favor killing people at any time, not just killing children.
So the Nazis won the Second World War. Who knew? That’s what we have become.
Apparently, my point would not longer be sarcastic.
No sense letting such a useful tool get wasted on the elderly infirm!
I agree on the underlying point. Infanticide is infanticide in or out of the womb.
Christians have made that very point, albiet against abortion. I’m not surprised, yet still sickened, that after decrying this very assertion for decades, the Left is now accepting it, not to protect the unborn, but to kill those infants that got away.
The leftwingtards have several mottos ~ one of them is “let none escape”.
Clubbing baby seals... ILLEGAL.
Killing babies... AOK.
Don’t you just looooove the minds of socialist liberal pinko moonbats?
We've had a good run, but when the business gets passed along from heirs to heirs, sometime we forget what carried our startup to the top, along with those business basics that were the foundation of our success.
We neglected building and grounds maintenance and fired pest control and it's been downhill ever since. Feedback from the top was being ignored...I dunno, I think Row v Wade was what broke the final straw holding back the harbingers. And, we never did enough to close the door, but just gave in and went with it instead.
Looking around at the mess, I'd like to close that door ASAP, before the next ugly things this way comes through. Get back with the original pest control company and their solid gold guarantee. Fix the cracks in the foundation, clean up the books and get back on the business plan. We might survive the bad economy.
Instead, we will legalize gay marriage.
I'm sure some will be happy with this bold new marketing plan for "fixing" the building problems with a fresh coat of colorful paint bought on sale. Might even work some short term magic on that bottom line.
None the less, the contract is very clear about this and I'm predicting a nasty breakup and/or bankruptcy.
someone should ask these same folks if they think killing innocent baby animals like dogs, cats, lambs, calves, horses, ....... is okay or is it just baby humans that they think are okay to kill.
Abortion is just anonymous killing.
They are already killing old and handicapped people in some Britian hospitals. They withhold food and water.
When a government defines and then targets a group of people for death, it is called genocide. Liberals intend to do it here to the boomer generation. But before they get around to killing them via denying health care, they will rob their retirement savings.
That is why you hear them spitting out “old white men” all the time. They are dehumanizing old white people to prepare the public to not have mercy for the group of Americans they are fixing to kill. They don’t want those oldsters armed.
I was waiting for this day...can’t say I’m surprised. I think they’ll settle on being allowed to kill kids up to the age (stage) when a kid understands the difference between life and death.
...at least that’s where they’re heading.
This was Obama’s position during his tenure in the Illinois State legislature.
I expect the Democrat party to fully embrace this within the next 10 to 15 years. They are increasingly an atheistic party, devoid of any moral clarity.
This argument is exactly why I became pro-life. It is a perfectly logical, but completely immoral argument.
If it is acceptable to kill a baby, they it is acceptable to kill an unborn child. Since it is clearly immoral to kill a baby, the same goes for an unborn baby.
