    If abortion, why not infanticide? This leading question is often treated as a canard by supporters of abortion. However, it is seriously argued by two Italian utilitarians and published online in the prestigious Journal of Medical Ethics this week. Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva are associated respectively with Monash University, in Melbourne, Australia, and with the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, in the UK.They argue that both the fetus and the new-born infant are only potential persons without any interests. Therefore the interests of the persons involved with them are paramount until some indefinite time after birth. To emphasise...

    In a fact check of Wednesday's Republican presidential debate on CNN, Associated Press reporters Calvin Woodward and Tom Raum take Newt Gingrich to task for stating: "If we’re going to have a debate about who the extremist is on these issues, it is President Obama, who as a state senator voted to protect doctors who killed babies who survived the abortion." Citing the above statement in a list of what they call "head-scratching claims," Woodward and Raum challenge it as follows: "THE FACTS: As an Illinois state senator, Obama voted against legislation promoted by anti-abortion activists that would have conferred...

    You would get something that sounds like this… 7 Arguments for Infanticide 1. Abortion costs money, and many poor people do not have the money to spare on abortion, especially in developing countries. Infanticide, on the other hand, is absolutely free. The procedure requires no doctor’s consultation, no medication, and no follow up visit. It requires no special equipment and can be performed with any number of common household items, such as a kitchen knife or even a shoestring. 2. Criminalizing infanticide is dangerous for women. In societies where infanticide is illegal, young women who do not want their child,...

    A woman in Australia who was pregnant with twins decided to have one of her babies aborted after doctors discovered that he had a life-threatening congenital heart defect. The seriously disturbing part? The doctors aborted the wrong fetus, terminating a perfectly healthy child. After doctors realized the "blunder," the woman, who was 32 weeks pregnant, had to undergo an emergency cesarean to deliver the sick fetus, where it was later terminated. The Royal Women's Hospital confirmed the incident and referred to it as a "terrible tragedy." Um, yeah ... one could say that. I honestly really don't even know what...

    Canada's highest court has refused to hear the Crown appeal of an infanticide conviction in the controversial case of Wetaskiwin baby killer Katrina Effert. In a decision released Oct. 13, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed the Crown appeal without costs. As per usual, no reasons were provided. The Crown had appealed a May decision of the Court of Appeal of Alberta in which a three-judge panel had ruled a second-degree murder conviction handed to Effert, 25, by a jury was an "unreasonable" verdict and instead substituted a conviction of infanticide. Meanwhile, Effert was handed a three-year suspended sentence with...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A House committee voted Wednesday to eliminate some $50 million that President Barack Obama requested for the U.N. organization that helps women and children in developing countries with reproductive health and family planning, a reflection of growing Republican anger with both the world body and its work in China. The GOP-led Foreign Affairs Committee approved legislation that targets the yearly U.S. contribution to the U.N. Population Fund, an organization the United States helped found in the late 1960s. Republican administrations typically have withheld funds from the group, but Obama restored the money. The party-line vote was 23-17....

    Mark Steyn hit the nail on the head when he accused a Canadian appeals court of allowing for a “fourth-trimester abortion” - that’s right, the killing of a baby that is already born. The case emerged from the Court of Queen’s Bench in Alberta, where a judge faced the fact that a woman had been convicted of strangling her newborn son and then throwing the baby’s body over the fence into her neighbor’s yard. As CBC News reported, the woman was given a three-year suspended sentence and will spend no time in jail for the killing of her baby. Katrina...

    The title isn’t fair — in Canada infanticide is a serious crime that can land you a tough five year sentence. That’s five years maximum, by the way. After all, it’s only killing a baby, nothing people need to really be punished for doing. People in Canada who think killing an infant is the act of a morally bankrupt monster who deserves more time than the average murderer are getting another kick in the teeth, courtesy of Judge Joanne Veit. She let a woman convicted of murdering her newborn baby then throwing the body over her neighbor’s backyard fence walk...

The intent of the 2 paragraph bill was the protection of live infants after separation from their mother by certifying their rights as legal “persons.” “The BAIPA was designed to ensure that in those rare cases in which a baby marked for abortion happens to survive–that the child will be immediately accorded full human and constitutional rights.” As many on the left believed this an underhanded assault on Roe v Wade, a “neutrality clause” was added, which read: “Nothing in this legislation shall be...

However, despite the lack of visibility, numerous abortion related campaigns are ongoing around the nation. After decades of futile attempts to stack the Supreme Court with anti-abortion judges, opponents of abortion have switched tactics and are pursuing a variety of legislative strategies at the state level. Common strategies are the limiting of the time period when an abortion can be performed, and attempts to influence the mother to keep the fetus. South Dakota has just passed a law that...

For the past 37 years, the annual event has drawn a peaceful, prayerful crowd dedicated to the true civil rights challenge of our era: ending the termination of human life for profit. The horrors of this enterprise were exposed Wednesday as murder charges were filed against practitioners at the Women's Medical Society abortion clinic in West Philadelphia. The grand jury's report provided descriptions too gruesome to reprint beyond the summary statement, "It was a baby charnel house." The facility belonged to...

    The grand jury report incident to the indictment for murder and infanticide of Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell has now been released, and it is telling. Some three-hundred pages in length, it reveals that the abortion mill that Dr. Gosnell ran at the Women’s Medical Society had not been inspected since 1993. “According to the prosecutors,” Marian Wang at ProPublica reports, “Gosnell and his associates not only broke state law by performing abortions after 24 weeks—they also killed live babies by stabbing them with scissors and cutting their spinal cords.”

    USA Today is reporting that Barack Husseon Obama echoed his support for abortion rights yesterday, the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court's pro-abortion decision in Roe v. Wade.

Crime And Punishment...It was the same Barack Hussein Obama who stated while campaigning for president in 2008; "...look, I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old.

    Slate’s Will Saletan, who definitely pitches his beliefs tent in the pro choice camp, goes into details about the Philadelphia abortion/infanticide mill, which I posted about the other day.  He first notes that some pro choice absolutists believe in abortion through the ninth month–and quotes and links them.  That’s worth discussing, but rather than repeat that here, I’ll let those interested read the piece, which I link below, for themselves.He then recites the awful details of what happened at the “clinic,” as alleged in the grand jury report.  From Saletan’s “The Baby Butcher:” According to the newly released grand...

    A Philadelphia Grand Jury recently issued an indictment against Dr. [sic] Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortionist, accusing him, among other things, of six counts of murder, multiple counts of infanticide, abuse of corpses, and several other charges. Gosnell is being charged with murder because in at least six cases, he delivered a third-trimester otherwise viable baby, and then proceeded to cut the baby’s spinal cord, thus murdering it. The sad part about this is, that in hundreds of other cases, he performed almost the same procedure, but killed the baby that was partially born (a partial-birth abortion). Gosnell also kept...

    PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, January 20, 2011 ( - A massive, photograph-laden Grand Jury Report released Wednesday has detailed the bone-chilling practices of a Philadelphia abortionist, who clinic workers testified had delivered “hundreds” of living, breathing newborn children before severing their spinal cords or slitting their necks to complete the abortions. Abortionist Kermit Gosnell was arrested Wednesday for eight counts of murder. One of the charges was for the botched-abortion death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, a Nepalese refugee. The other seven were for children who police had discovered, by examining their remains, had been born alive and then killed. District Attorney R....

    There is little doubt that America has become a culture of death. Two of the most dangerous places to be are so-called women’s clinics and nursing homes. We do not value life that is not at its prime. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that a doctor was killing babies with scissors. Maybe we should be surprised he’s actually been arrested for it. On Wednesday an abortion doctor in West Philadelphia was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors. Dr. Kermit Gosnell has...

    An abortion doctor has been arrested and charged with the murder of a patient and seven live infants whose spines were severed with scissors at a West Philadelphia clinic that has been described as a house of horrors, officials said today.

Gosnell, 69, lost his medical license last year after health officials determined his clinic posed "a clear danger to the public." Gosnell was arrested this morning, officials said. He has maintained his innocence. The seven infants were born alive in the 6th,...

    The lifeless bodies of two tiny babies are being given their final bath before burial in Karachi, after they were left to die in the southern Pakistani city's garbage dumps. "They can only have been one or two days old," says volunteer worker Mohammad Saleem, pointing at the two small corpses being gently washed by his colleagues at a charity's morgue.
