After birth abortion: It’s ok to kill both fetuses and infants, says bioethicists

By Sarah Terzo

“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…. [After birth abortion] should be permissible in all the cases where abortion is, including cases where the newborn is not disabled.”
