The immoral monsters of modernity

Whatever they may be, they don’t possess anything recognizable as ethics:

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.

 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”. The academics also argue that parents should be able to have their baby killed if it turns out to be disabled when it is born.

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. He said those who made abusive and threatening posts about the study were “fanatics opposed to the very values of a liberal society”.

The article, entitled “After-birth abortion: Why should the baby live?”, was written by two of Prof Savulescu’s former associates, Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva.

Notice how long it has taken to go from “abortion is not murder” to “abortion is murder and murder is okay”. 45 years. And it is morbidly amusing to see the journal’s editor complaining about the death threats. If “the very values of a liberal society” include the right to murder newborn babies, then number me among the fanatics opposed to it.

If newborn babies are not actual persons, then how can one reasonably limit the right to kill them to the parents? Since they can’t be property, it seems to me that the moral logic suggests that anyone who might happen to feel like killing them has a right to do so.

These people are a death cult. They worship death. Nothing turns them on more than the idea of wiping out humanity… except for themselves, of course. And then there is that name, Savulescu. Where did he get his doctorate, Transylvania?
