Ethics my Sweet ASS!!!

Friends, my head is exploding right now. My body is literally shaking. I am aware that generally speaking, the morals of the masses have been on a VERY slippery slope. Look at what they show on TV. Look at the types of people kids idolize. I find it quite disturbing, but THIS takes the cake.
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 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.

They argued: “The moral status of an infant is equivalent to that of a fetus in the sense that both lack those properties that justify the attribution of a right to life to an individual.”

Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’ in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.
I don't even know where to begin. "Morally irrelevant"???? "Potential person"???? Okay, let's start with this, and I'll try to go REAL slow. These cretins call it "post-birth abortion" when what it really is is infanticide. Infantacide is defined as the killing of an infant. Infantacide is illegal. There is a reason for this. Because once the child is born, it is LEGALLY a person. NOT a potential person. (I will not get into the argument about when a fetus becomes a person - that's not the point here) A living breathing Person. The thought that ANYONE could think of a newborn as a "thing" and that anyone would have a right to murder that "thing" is abhorrent.

Good Lord - does no one value life anymore? It seems, in article after article that I read, that there is NO value put on babies. There have been, as of this writing, 5 co-sleeping deaths in Milwaukee already. It's gotten to the point that this surprises no one anymore. Yet no one is held accountable. Women are murdering, or letting their baby daddy murder, innocent children, yet the punishment they get is laughable!!

That this is written by "medical ethicists" and published in the Journal for Medical Ethics is truly frightening. Ethics is defined as follows:
a. A set of principles of right conduct.
b. A theory or a system of moral values: "An ethic of service is at war with a craving for gain" (Gregg Easterbrook).
2. ethics (used with a sing. verb) The study of the general nature of morals and of the specific moral choices to be made by a person; moral philosophy.
3. ethics (used with a sing. or pl. verb) The rules or standards governing the conduct of a person or the members of a profession: medical ethics.
The right conduct? Moral values? More worrisome, the "general nature" of morals? The article goes on to read:
“The goal of the Journal of Medical Ethics is not to present the Truth or promote some one moral view. It is to present well reasoned argument based on widely accepted premises.”
My friends, if this EVER becomes a "widely accepted premise" we are in a WHOLE lot more trouble than I ever imagined.

It's simply reprehensible.


  1. This was the next logical step after "late-term abortion". The next after murdering infants is to murder toddlers. After some number of years where that becomes the norm, it's to murder school children, then teens, then adults. And this is the plan. We continue to make life more and more cheap, more and more dispensable until it is valueless. Then those who believe they are the "best and brightest" have the ability to terminate the "undesirables". I'll be gone by then (I hope). eugenics at its finest, started right here in the USA in the 1930's by our friend Margaret Sanger.

  2. There is more outrage shown if a puppy is killed than if a baby is killed. It's incomprehensible. I'm nearly incoherent with rage, disgust and dismay...words escape me, and that most CERTAINLY doesn't happen often.
