The “smell of death,” the shock of recognition, and the evasion of passive infanticide

By Dave Andrusko “God sometimes does His work with gentle drizzle, not storms. Drip. Drip. Drip.”  — John Newton, from the film, “Amazing Grace.” Newton, at one time a slave trader, penned that great hymn following his conversion. William Wilberforce was born in 1759 in Yorkshire, England. Unfortunately, Wilberforce is not known today nearly as well …

Smith The Senate is planning to vote the week after next on S.311, “The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” Here are its core terms: Congress finds the following:(1) If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the …

The Pagan Logic of Infanticide

Autonomy over Human Dignity By John Stonestreet & Roberto Rivera Among the pagan practices vanquished by early Christians was infanticide. As Christianity fades in the West, so do our defenses against infanticide in all its grisly forms. Since its beginning, the pro-life movement has argued that the logic that justified abortion-on-demand could, at some point, …

Sanctity of life view will “collapse,” Peter Singer predicts

By Sarah Terzo Philosopher Peter Singer, who supports killing disabled infants on the grounds that they are not yet “people,” wrote “During the next 35 years, the traditional view of the sanctity of human life will collapse….only a rump of hardcore, know-nothing religious fundamentalists will defend the view that every human life, from conception to …

Why Democrats must be soft on infanticide

By Dave Andrusko Elsewhere today I plan to write about a post that appears on a pro-abortion site that cynically dismisses as “just politics” our concerns over babies aborted because they have Down syndrome. If you read my interpretation of the writer, you’ll see that the only way they can live with their consciences is …

Another failed effort to hide Democrats’ support for infanticide

By Dave Andrusko You can always, always, always tell when you’ve uncovered a truth that anti-life forces desperately want kept hidden. They will scream to high heaven, mix categories so as to blur the point, and insist that they would never do what they just got through suggesting they would do. Welcome to infanticide by …

Pro-abortion excuses for infanticide have a familiar ring

By Dave Andrusko The resemblances are uncanny. I am referring to the Democrats’ response to the need to protect abortion survivors today and what they were saying during the long, long debate over partial-birth abortions (PBA) in the 1990s and early 2000s. We were told incessantly that PBAs didn’t take place. Who would deliver all …
