Posted on 11/03/2018 6:53:11 AM PDT by antidemoncrat
A professor emeritus of biology tries to make the case that newborn babies can ethically & morally be killed because they are not cognizant of themselves i.e., they are morally equivalent to a fetus which he maintains is a non-person.

So, he places the value of newborns on the same level of slaves from years ago.
Yep. He’s a Democrat.
Just another non-man trying to kiss up to his superiors: pro-abortion feminists. By doing this he has rejected his humanity and his masculinity.
Normal men would go to battle to protect their children. Obviously he is not a normal man.
Hoping that one day he gets bonked on the head, and is declared a non-sentient being, and gets what he asked for.
Why would anyone want to kill a newborn, instead of putting it up for adoption?
Shades of Nazism.
Next up the elderly, indigent, mentally retarded, disabled, and political prisoners.
If the left wants to scream Nazi, they should look at themselves.
Dear Mr. Professor. No, newborns can’t be killed ethically. Your problem is that you are an evil, twisted and otherwise reprehensible person in danger of the Judgment of God, which you deserve. You need to repent and place your faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
News articles today read like a “coming attractions” banner. Isn’t our post-Christian society lovely and getting lovelier.
This man is not cognizant of any morals, so theres that.
If being sentient is the standard then this guy is fair game.
Death cult. Is it any wonder islaum and leftists have united for a time?
Sentient is an irrelevant strawman
A possible wedge for the red green alliance. Muslims believe the soul enters the fetus at four months. Abortion is illegal in muslim majority countries.
The tentacles of POS Alex Jones should not be allowed to blemish this great site. Here is another link to this old story (Alex must be hurting looking for more cultists) from a legit site:
The videos that confirmed to me that Alex Jones is an absolute fraud and piece of garbage:
“The slippery slope”.....as Malcolm Muggeridge brilliantly described it.
Just like Alzheimer patients, aged people with dementia.......brain-damaged people from car accidents, Down’s Syndrome carriers ....
.......and soon on and so forth.
And if you ask me....that professor looks half-cocked.....so maybe he’d qualify.
The Nazis believed this.
The middle step of his logic is accurate: newborn babies are morally equivalent to a fetus. The logical flaw is with his starting point and with the direction of his logic. A decent human being would reach a very different conclusion:
1. Newborn babies cannot ethically or morally be killed, because they are innocent and fully independent human beings.
2. Unborn babies who could survive outside the womb are morally and biologically equivalent to a newborn baby, which is clearly a person.
3. Therefore, unborn babies cannot ethically or morally be killed either. They also are human beings. The point at which this becomes a moral question rather than one of logic is unclear - one can debate whether stopping a pregnancy becomes immoral when the baby is viable, when it has a heartbeat, at implantation, at fertilization, or at intercourse - but that point is clearly reached before birth.
What an arrogant asshole to use a word like “sentient” anyway, not to mention he’s an idiot. A newborn will cry at the discomfort of a dirty diaper or being hungry, or cold, or hot, so they do have feelings.
Way-way-wait a minute. Slaves were expensive, valuable, trusted members of the household who were acknowledged to be crucial to the survival of home and business. They were involved in the most critical work of families and businesses, ranging from field work to farm management to cooking for the household and laborers to bookkeeping to hairdressing to caring for their masters' own children.
Slaves were also recognized as children of God with souls that would go to Heaven or hell, and were baptized and brought to church and revival meetings--which they attended with great enthusiasm and learned the faith and Scots-Irish hymns of their masters, developing Gospel music from it.
People who take part, actively or by assent, to the killing of babies are simply enemies of our civilization, exploiting it for their own selfish purposes--like Attila or Genghis Khan. Just ask them. Listen to what their great theorists freely say about the place of families, God, country, morality, and civil society. People like that place the value of newborns at the level, not of slaves, but of trash. Wait, I'm sorry--they class babies below trash, since trash is something they "recycle," because they cannot bear to throw it away.
He looks like he enjoys his oan brilliance.2
